Nuclear Update (17 Jan 2019)

Albert Owen: I thank the Secretary of State for coming to the House at the earliest opportunity to give this statement. He will know the importance of this matter to my local community, to the Welsh and UK economies and, indeed, to the Government’s nuclear policy. With 10 years of planning, a lot of work has gone into this project, as he rightly acknowledges. It started off under the Labour Government...

Leaving the EU: European Union (Withdrawal) Act (14 Jan 2019)

Albert Owen: Will the Secretary of State give way?

Leaving the EU: European Union (Withdrawal) Act (14 Jan 2019)

Albert Owen: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I do not make points of order lightly, as you know. The Prime Minister was asked a question earlier about respecting the will of the people and referendums. A number of Members—including, I think, the Secretary of State—voted against the Government of Wales Act 1998 after the 1997 referendum decided the matter. That should be on the record when he lectures...

Leaving the EU (14 Jan 2019)

Albert Owen: If regulatory alignment is good enough for Northern Ireland, it is good enough for Wales, good enough for Scotland and good enough for England. For that reason, I will be voting against the Prime Minister’s deal tomorrow, because we want a level playing field in the United Kingdom. Moreover, 88% of constituents who have contacted me reject her deal. Many young people—75%—think that they...

Crown Post Offices: Franchising — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (10 Jan 2019)

Albert Owen: The hon. Gentleman is absolutely right to talk about the social service as well as the postal service. There are also cash-handling services that post offices provide for small businesses. Wherever they transfer to, that service is not available.

Crown Post Offices: Franchising — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (10 Jan 2019)

Albert Owen: As my hon. Friend knows, I know the branch she refers to very well from my student days and I use it at Christmas when I visit my daughter. It has excellent services, including an exchange bureau, which can compete with the best. Those kinds of services, which are working in purpose-built buildings, need to be maintained and enhanced. She is making an excellent case, but she makes it for the...

Crown Post Offices: Franchising — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (10 Jan 2019)

Albert Owen: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing the debate, and I wish her, the Chair and all Members a happy new year. She made the important point about ownership of the Crown network. We are the owners but, in addition, the Government are the sole shareholder, so by proxy the Government are closing down our public services. We need the opportunity to have not just a debate, but the information...

Crown Post Offices: Franchising — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (10 Jan 2019)

Albert Owen: My hon. Friend makes an important point. The Government are trying to regenerate town centres, yet they are closing down buildings. In a town in my constituency, the building has been empty for some years and is a blight on the landscape.

Business of the House: [3rd Allotted Day] (6 Dec 2018)

Albert Owen: rose—

Business of the House: [3rd Allotted Day] (6 Dec 2018)

Albert Owen: Will the Secretary of State give way on that point?

Business of the House: [3rd Allotted Day] (6 Dec 2018)

Albert Owen: The right hon. Gentleman is right to tell the House that George Osborne got it completely wrong with the panic measures and emergency Budget that he was going to introduce, as he did on eliminating the deficit. The Secretary of State is laying out different scenarios. What forecast would he like to give the House for how he sees the state of the economy within x amount of time after leaving...

Business of the House: [3rd Allotted Day] (6 Dec 2018)

Albert Owen: The draft withdrawal agreement is a political fudge. The political declaration weakens the United Kingdom, and, as the economic analysis, whether of this deal or no deal, shows, the agreement would make my constituents, the people of Wales and the people of the UK worse off economically. I cannot support a fudged deal that weakens the UK and makes people poorer, and I will be voting against...

Business of the House: [3rd Allotted Day] (6 Dec 2018)

Albert Owen: It’s true.

Business of the House: [3rd Allotted Day] (6 Dec 2018)

Albert Owen: I am listening carefully to the Chancellor. He mentioned frictionless trade, but where in the political declaration does it say “Guaranteed frictionless trade”? It said so in the Chequers agreement, but it seems to have been omitted in what we are voting on on Tuesday.

Business of the House (6 Dec 2018)

Albert Owen: May I ask the Leader of the House for a debate on the UK shared prosperity fund? Many communities, including my own of Ynys Môn, have been beneficiaries of the European social fund. The clock is now ticking and many of those communities need to do planning for post-2020, so that the poorest communities in our country can get the help and support that is needed.

EU Exit Negotiations (15 Nov 2018)

Albert Owen: Prime Minister, we all understand the importance of the Belfast agreement, but these special arrangements for one part of the United Kingdom—Northern Ireland—will have an impact on the rest of the United Kingdom, including sea ports on the western seaboard, as they will create a de facto line across the Irish sea. The Prime Minister has managed one thing today, which is to unite the DUP,...

Shared Prosperity Fund: Wales (14 Nov 2018)

Albert Owen: I am not criticising the Minister, because he has only been in the job a short time, but it is the duty of Wales Office Ministers to stand up for Wales. We are having this debate to put pressure on him, so that the Welsh voice is heard loud and clear in this debate. It is not for others to decide; it is for Government to decide, and he is our voice in that Government.
