Government Policy on the Proceedings of the House (10 Oct 2017)

Greg Knight: Is not my hon. Friend’s case, in essence, that as long as the Government have the confidence of the House, when the House gives advice, it is for Ministers to decide how much of that advice to accept?

Finance Bill (12 Sep 2017)

Greg Knight: I am reflecting on what my hon. Friend said about allowances. Is he arguing for allowances to be automatically uprated to take account of inflation?

Bills Presented: Parking (Code of Practice) Bill (19 Jul 2017)

Greg Knight: They are, indeed.

Bill Presented: Scheduling of Parliamentary Business (17 Jul 2017)

Greg Knight: My right hon. Friend should take no lectures from the Labour party, which, when in government, reduced Prime Minister’s Question Time from twice a week to once a week and introduced the regular guillotining of Bills, thereby reducing debating time.

Perth’S Cultural Contribution to the Uk (5 Jul 2017)

Greg Knight: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that support for the city of Perth goes beyond his party and his country? There are Government Members, whom he would no doubt refer to as Sassenachs, who think that Perth is a great city.

Digital Economy Bill: Universal service broadband obligations (26 Apr 2017)

Greg Knight: Will the hon. Gentleman accept from me that there are rural areas in England, too? Although the Government are to be congratulated on what they are doing, does he agree that we must do more to ensure that geographically isolated areas do not remain digitally isolated?

Food and Farming: Employment Opportunities — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (25 Apr 2017)

Greg Knight: Does my hon. Friend agree that British farmers will be able to promote themselves and their products far more effectively when we leave the European Union and gain control of food labelling?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Small Businesses (24 Apr 2017)

Greg Knight: Is the Secretary of State aware that many Labour-controlled councils are still pursuing anti-car policies? Will he remind them of recommendation 9 of the Mary Portas retail review, which stated that free and available but controlled parking should be made available to high street shoppers?

Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee (20 Apr 2017)

Greg Knight: I congratulate my hon. Friend and his Committee on a comprehensive report. I agree with the remarks from the Opposition on cyber-activity. Does he agree that we need much better monitoring of cyber-activity as a matter of urgency, not just for referendums but for elections generally?

Regional Flags: Driving Licences and Number Plates (19 Apr 2017)

Greg Knight: And Yorkshire.

Regional Flags: Driving Licences and Number Plates (19 Apr 2017)

Greg Knight: As we move closer to leaving the European Union, will the Minister look again at this? It seems to me that as long as a number plate is clear and can be read and understood, if someone wants to personalise their number plate modestly, we should not stand in the way of them so doing.

Regional Flags: Driving Licences and Number Plates (19 Apr 2017)

Greg Knight: Will the hon. Gentleman tell us how far he would go in deregulating in this area if he was in office? For example, would he go beyond regional symbols and allow other symbols, such as a motif or artwork used by a sports club or local car club?

Regional Flags: Driving Licences and Number Plates (19 Apr 2017)

Greg Knight: My hon. Friend is making a very strong case. Does he agree that it is not just the people of Cornwall and Devon who would like to have something different on their number plates? I am sure that many people based in Yorkshire would like to have the Yorkshire rose on their number plate, rather than the pretentious and increasingly irrelevant EU flag.

Guardianship (Missing Persons) Bill: Missing persons (24 Mar 2017)

Greg Knight: On reflection, does my hon. Friend agree that the court probably has that power anyway? Someone seeking to obtain an order must surely have to show the court that they have taken all reasonable steps to discover where the missing person is..

Guardianship (Missing Persons) Bill: Missing persons (24 Mar 2017)

Greg Knight: I think that my hon. Friend has inadvertently misled the House. As I read the Bill, the term of four years is a maximum, and the court has power to make an order for any length of time up to four years.

Merchant Shipping (Homosexual Conduct) Bill: Homosexual acts in the merchant navy: repeals (24 Mar 2017)

Greg Knight: Does my hon. Friend agree that the essence here is that we should not be seeking to pass provisions that are retrospective unless there is a compelling reason to do so, and where our hon. Friend the Member for Christchurch (Mr Chope) has failed is in explaining what is compelling about his amendment?

Merchant Shipping (Homosexual Conduct) Bill: Homosexual acts in the merchant navy: repeals (24 Mar 2017)

Greg Knight: My hon. Friend is a passionate democrat. Does he not agree that there is something profoundly undemocratic about seeking to make a retrospective change to the law?
