Prison Reform and Safety (7 Dec 2017)

Greg Knight: Does my hon. Friend agree that literacy levels among prisoners are a problem? I understand that more than 30% of people in prison have the reading age of an 11-year-old. Does not that issue really need to be addressed?

Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill (1 Dec 2017)

Greg Knight: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the longer this boundary review is delayed without being implemented, the greater the unfairness becomes, particularly with regard to rural seats, which, in the main, have seen a large increase in population?

Business of the House (26 Oct 2017)

Greg Knight: May we have a debate on making better use of natural resources? Is the Leader of the House aware that in a few days’ time we are going to go through the ridiculous ritual of putting our clocks back an hour, thereby plunging the nation into darkness and misery by mid-afternoon? Can we look again at the possibility of moving our clocks forward an hour? That would boost tourism and could...

Smart Meters Bill (24 Oct 2017)

Greg Knight: Will my right hon. Friend confirm that, if a customer does not want to have a smart meter, they will not be forced to have one installed?

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill (23 Oct 2017)

Greg Knight: Is not the current problem with some of the smaller electric vehicles the range that they have? I very much doubt that the hon. Gentleman’s own vehicle would get him from here to Hull without stopping for a recharge. Hopefully, that difficulty will disappear as battery technology progresses.

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill (23 Oct 2017)

Greg Knight: I refer to my declaration in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. Some academics are saying that when automated vehicles become commonplace, the Government will seek to ban people from driving cars themselves or will, at the very least, introduce a policy that severely restricts motorists. Will my right hon. Friend confirm that that is not Government policy today and that he...

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill (23 Oct 2017)

Greg Knight: And the Minister.

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill (23 Oct 2017)

Greg Knight: Will my right hon. Friend give way?

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill (23 Oct 2017)

Greg Knight: I am grateful to the Minister for giving way before he reaches the end of his preliminary remarks. [Laughter.] Has he had any further thoughts on the data log of automated vehicles, how long such information should be kept and who should have access to it? We all expect insurance companies and the police—even if there is no accident, the vehicle might be involved in a crime—to...

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?
