European Council (17 Dec 2018)

Hugo Swire: My right hon. Friend has said that she is going to be stepping up work to mitigate any disruption in the event of a no deal and the Cabinet will be discussing that tomorrow. Given that there are just over 100 days to go and we have the Christmas and new year break, can she inform this House and the watching country how many COBRA meetings there will be, how many she will chair, and whether...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Air Passenger Duty: Domestic Flights (11 Dec 2018)

Hugo Swire: I make no apologies for continuing to lobby Treasury Ministers on the iniquity of air passenger duty and the discriminatory application of it to Flybe, based in my constituency at Exeter airport, which is the UK’s largest domestic carrier. Will the Treasury look again at Flybe and its particular set of circumstances?

Business of the House: Seahorses: Illegal Trade in the UK (6 Dec 2018)

Hugo Swire: And now for something completely different. I had hoped that more colleagues would have wanted to stay for this important debate and would, in fact, be rather envious of seahorses, who go about their business at the bottom of the ocean completely ignorant, perhaps, of regulatory borders, backstops and barriers to trade. Perhaps they have never even heard of Brexit or the withdrawal Bill; we...

Business of the House: Seahorses: Illegal Trade in the UK (6 Dec 2018)

Hugo Swire: Clearly I do, which is why I am having this debate. The hon. Gentleman has uniquely not managed to mention Strangford Lough in his intervention—I am sure that there are some seahorses there, or that there were at some point—but he makes his point well, and I will come to that in a minute or two. Seahorses play an important role in coastal ecosystems, eating small crustacea such as mysis...

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

Hugo Swire: rose—

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

Hugo Swire: No one ever said it was going to be easy. I never shared the lofty visions of the founding fathers of the EEC, the EC and the EU—Schuman, Adenauer, Monnet and others—but I totally understand where they were coming from in post- war, post-consensus Europe and what they were trying to achieve. I never shared the vision of wanting an ever closer set of federal European states or a European...

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

Hugo Swire: I did not say you did. I was just suggesting that you cut your teeth there, and I was right. From all my experience in Northern Ireland, I know the nervousness of the loyalist community about how it is often treated by the Northern Ireland Office and the Foreign Office, both institutions in which I have served. We cannot possibly place part of the United Kingdom in a position that is...

Exiting the European Union: Northern Ireland Backstop (6 Dec 2018)

Hugo Swire: What recent discussions his Department has had with EU officials on technological solutions to avoid the proposed Northern Ireland backstop.

Exiting the European Union: Northern Ireland Backstop (6 Dec 2018)

Hugo Swire: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Spelthorne (Kwasi Kwarteng) and the Secretary of State on their new positions on the Front Bench. They will do their job admirably. The truth of the matter is that existing techniques currently used in the EU can be applied to all EU borders. Will my hon. Friend update the House on those technologies and how they can be properly applied?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (4 Dec 2018)

Hugo Swire: Further to that question, my right hon. Friend is aware that all parties are in court today again in Colombo. What conversations has he had with fellow Commonwealth Ministers? As chair of the Commonwealth, what conversations have we had with the secretary-general of the Commonwealth? What message can he give to the judges in Colombo to ensure that they uphold the constitution of Sri Lanka?

Health and Social Care: Community Hospitals (27 Nov 2018)

Hugo Swire: I am extremely grateful that my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State came down to East Devon on his first visit outside London. He was able to visit the health and wellbeing hub that we have created in Budleigh Salterton, learn about the beds that we have kept in Sidmouth and Exmouth, and see Ottery St Mary Hospital. Will the Minister instruct all her officials to work collectively with...

Hugo Swire: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, pursuant to the Answer of 25 July 2018 to Question 164905 on Motorcycles: Noise, when his Department plans to publish the research it has commissioned to support police and highway authorities in combating and enforcing against excessive noise from motorcycles.

Leaving the EU (26 Nov 2018)

Hugo Swire: At Lancaster House in January 2017, my right hon. Friend said very clearly that we will “ensure that…no new barriers to living and doing business within our own Union are created”. She went on to say that “we will…bring an end to the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice in Britain… Because we will not have truly left the European Union if we are not in control of our own...

Finance (No. 3) Bill: Offshore Receipts in Respect of Intangible Property (20 Nov 2018)

Hugo Swire: My hon. Friend is making some extremely good points with which I agree, but it is not only online companies such as Amazon that we need to work out how best to tax, but others, such as offshore gambling companies, that retain huge revenues generated by doing things in this country. Is he convinced that the thinking is going on in the Treasury on a root-and-branch reform of all taxation? It...
