Written Answers — Northern Ireland Office: Borders: Northern Ireland (20 Jan 2021)

Sammy Wilson: What recent assessment the Government has made of the effect of implementation of the Northern Ireland Protocol on Northern Ireland's economy.

Trade Bill: After Clause 2 - Parliamentary approval of trade agreements (19 Jan 2021)

Sammy Wilson: I rise to support Lords amendment 8, in relation to Northern Ireland, and Lords amendment 3, in relation to acts of genocide. First of all, I will deal with Lords amendment 8. I believe that it is a necessity that we have in the Bill a commitment that Northern Ireland will not be excluded from the benefits of any trade agreements that this country reaches with the rest of the world. People in...

Trade Bill: After Clause 2 - Parliamentary approval of trade agreements (19 Jan 2021)

Sammy Wilson: Will the Minister give way?

Trade Bill: After Clause 2 - Parliamentary approval of trade agreements (19 Jan 2021)

Sammy Wilson: I think we all appreciate the work that the Foreign Secretary has done to ensure that firms look at their supply lines to check that they are not purchasing goods produced through slave labour or through human rights abuses. Now that the United Kingdom is out of the EU, we want to stand on the world stage as a global leader. What objections does the Minister have to putting in the law of this...

Universal Credit and Working Tax Credit (18 Jan 2021)

Sammy Wilson: I think everyone in this House must acknowledge the work that the Government have done to try to help people through the economic difficulties caused by the response to the pandemic. However, will the Minister accept that, even with the best will in the world, he cannot say that after April, everything is going to be rosy? We know there is going to be a long tail of businesses that have been...

Universal Credit and Working Tax Credit (18 Jan 2021)

Sammy Wilson: Does the hon. Gentleman accept that a pressing reason to have a debate and vote on this issue today is the fact that all the evidence suggests that the restrictions resulting from the measures taken to deal with covid have hit the poorest in society hardest? Poverty is up, and those people who most depend on this kind of support are the ones who are most damaged at the moment.

Northern Ireland Protocol: Disruption to Trade (13 Jan 2021)

Sammy Wilson: People living in Northern Ireland—those living with the consequences of this protocol—will be amazed at the complacency that the Government have shown as to the economic damage that has been done by the wrecking ball of the protocol. This week, the Chancellor indicated that he had seen no problems. The Prime Minister has said that there are no problems. The Secretary of State for Northern...

Economic Update (11 Jan 2021)

Sammy Wilson: The Chancellor has said that we are now seeing signs of hope, especially because a deal has been struck with the European Union. It does not look like that in Northern Ireland, where supermarket shelves are empty and thousands of people are being sent letters from suppliers in England saying that neither they personally nor their businesses will any longer be supplied with goods. The steel...

Covid-19 (6 Jan 2021)

Sammy Wilson: Prime Minister, for the third time in nine months, the Government have introduced a damaging lockdown policy, which we know will cause thousands of businesses to go bankrupt, cost hundreds of thousands of jobs, damage children’s education, lead the national debt to soar and remove basic liberties from people that we expect in a free democracy, all because the Government say, and their...

Public Health (6 Jan 2021)

Sammy Wilson: Millions of citizens will be watching helplessly as the Government plod towards another damaging lockdown and respond to the pied piper advisers in SAGE and their mournful dirge of fear and terror. That is where we are going with these restrictions today. Unlike the poor children of the town of Hamelin, at least we know what the destination is, because we have been there before. We have seen...

Public Health (6 Jan 2021)

Sammy Wilson: That is one of the points I was going to come on to. If we are in for this long lockdown, the Government first of all cannot continue to abandon the self-employed who have been affected by previous lockdowns and still find themselves penniless and without any support. Secondly, the Government cannot allow children’s education to be disrupted for that length of time. As a former teacher, I...

European Union (Future Relationship) Bill (30 Dec 2020)

Sammy Wilson: I am glad that in two days’ time we will be finally leaving the EU. That is something that my party and I personally campaigned for, and it is something that would probably not have happened had it not been for the votes and crucial debates in this House when remainers tried to undermine the result of the referendum. I have to say that today that euphoria is tinged with sadness, because the...
