EU Exit Negotiations (17 Oct 2017)

Helen Goodman: Further to the question asked by my hon. Friend the Member for Lewisham East (Heidi Alexander), some representatives from the pharmaceutical industry came to see me last Thursday, and they are desperate for some clarification on future trading relations and regulation. If they do not get some certainty, investment is going to be put back or spent in other countries. Nobody thinks that we...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Hurricane Support (17 Oct 2017)

Helen Goodman: Following the hurricanes, the British overseas territory has a reconstruction bill of about £4 billion.

The Arts: Health Effects (11 Oct 2017)

Helen Goodman: It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Dorries. I congratulate the right hon. Member for Wantage (Mr Vaizey) on securing this debate. Moving directly on to a point made by my hon. Friend the Member for Ashfield (Gloria De Piero), the all-party group’s excellent report highlights the inequality in access to the arts. One of the difficulties is that people who...

Uk Plans for Leaving the EU (9 Oct 2017)

Helen Goodman: I am sure the Prime Minister knows that the Supreme Court did not opine on the question of whether article 50 was revocable, because the question before it was about our involvement. Therefore, why, when asked by my right hon. Friend the Member for Exeter (Mr Bradshaw) what advice she had had recently, did she rely on the Supreme Court?

Schools: National Funding Formula (14 Sep 2017)

Helen Goodman: Seven years ago there were two secondary schools in Spennymoor. Now there is only one, and no children went into the sixth form this September, which obviously puts its future into question. Surely the truth is that because the Secretary of State has been able to win only £1.3 billion and not £2.7 billion, she will not be able to give those children in Spennymoor the future they...

Business of the House (14 Sep 2017)

Helen Goodman: The weakness of the House’s scrutiny of delegated legislation was illustrated yesterday afternoon by the fact that the House passed a motion calling for the regulations on tuition fees not to go forward which the Government propose to ignore.

Business of the House (Today): Nomination of Members to Committees (12 Sep 2017)

Helen Goodman: The logic of the hon. and learned Lady’s position is that were the Conservative party to have 251 seats and the Labour party 250, with the other seats held by a variety of parties, it would still be right for the Conservative party to have a majority on every Committee. That is the logic of her argument. Is that what she is saying?
