Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Leaving the EU: Border Policing (20 Jun 2018)

Mike Penning: With regard to the border, throughout Operation Banner and the troubles in Northern Ireland, the military and the police desperately tried to get a hard border between the north and south. We would blow up crossing points and the following morning they would be open again. With the automatic number plate recognition that we have now, there should be no hard border, and I cannot see how it...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jun 2018)

Mike Penning: May I join the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition in paying tribute to the bravery of the imam from the mosque in Finsbury Park? May I also pay tribute to two people who are also in the Gallery today and who have shown dignity, bravery and integrity: the parents of Alfie Dingley? Alfie got the licence yesterday so that he will not have so many fits, which is what we know this...

Cannabis-Based Medicines: Points of Order (19 Jun 2018)

Mike Penning: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Yesterday I attempted to raise a point of order, which I do not think was a point of order, so I will try again today. I wonder how I can get on the record how thrilled I am, along with colleagues across the House, that it will no longer be necessary to go to Holland to get the drugs for Alfie Dingley. I was inundated with requests to come with me, but we will...

Cannabis-Based Medicines: Points of Order (19 Jun 2018)

Mike Penning: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. I would like to put on the record how difficult that announcement was for you, as an ardent Arsenal supporter. I am sure that we all, including those from other countries in the United Kingdom, support England when they are playing other countries outside the United Kingdom, and especially when Harry Kane scores two goals.

Medicinal Cannabis (18 Jun 2018)

Mike Penning: The Minister knows that I was at No. 10 with him and the Prime Minister, Alfie and his family. I cannot see why there should be a difference between the wonderful news that Billy has been given his drugs on clinical advice, and the advice in the cases of Alfie and others. The reason for the difference is that these medications come under schedule 1 of the Misuse of Drugs Regulations 2001....

Medicinal Cannabis (18 Jun 2018)

Mike Penning: On a point of order, Mr Speaker.

Medicinal Cannabis (18 Jun 2018)

Mike Penning: Well, you can try!

Medicinal Cannabis (18 Jun 2018)

Mike Penning: If you do not try, you never know, do you? During the urgent question, the right hon. Member for Birkenhead (Frank Field) asked whether it would be okay if Members went abroad and brought back such a prescribed product, and the Minister for Policing and the Fire Service quite rightly said that we are lawmakers not lawbreakers. However, we are also here to protect our population and our...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 (12 Jun 2018)

Mike Penning: The hon. Gentleman has been very generous in giving way. Surely we cannot ignore a referendum that was voted for by this House. The people made a decision and we cannot go against that decision. To say that perhaps they did not realise what they were doing when they voted to leave the European Union is an insult to the electorate.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 (12 Jun 2018)

Mike Penning: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Tower Block Cladding (21 May 2018)

Mike Penning: As a former firefighter and Fire Minister myself, I am really pleased to hear the Secretary of State say that we should immediately, as soon as this report allows us to, ban combustible cladding. That is something that we could do. One thing that we could easily do tomorrow morning is to make sure that there are heat-seeking cameras on every appliance that goes out to any incident in the...

Gaza Border Violence: Point of Order (15 May 2018)

Mike Penning: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. I wonder whether there is any way for the House and the country to mark the death of Captain Robert Nairac, George Cross, who was murdered on this day 41 years ago. He was my captain in the first battalion of the Grenadier Guards, and I think it is appropriate—especially at the moment, when there is so much concern about our veterans being...

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Information Orders (9 May 2018)

Mike Penning: It is interesting that we are making lots of exemptions for the Government, parish councils, lawyers and so on. I spoke to some lawyers this morning, and they were not convinced by the measures either. However, small businesses seem to be disproportionately affected, and there is real confusion out there. As I say, a lot of work has been done to protect the Government, parish councils and...

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Information Orders (9 May 2018)

Mike Penning: The Minister is being ever so generous in giving way not just to me, but to Members from across the House, and I thank her. Returning to the parliamentary stuff—we are only a small part of all this—some of the staff present at the briefing I mentioned left in tears, and I know that for a fact, because a member of my staff was there. Believe it or not, even though the ICO knew that...

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Information Orders (9 May 2018)

Mike Penning: What the Minister said at the Dispatch Box a moment ago was also news to me. I have been campaigning and pushing on this for months—I spoke to the Secretary of State over the bank holiday weekend—and I was going to vote against the Bill this evening. Yes, we need data protection, but we do not want to destroy or frighten our businesses in the process. However, I take my hon....

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Information Orders (9 May 2018)

Mike Penning: I am not worried about us; I am worried about small businesses.

Iran Nuclear Deal: Points of Order (9 May 2018)

Mike Penning: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. I wonder whether you have had any notification that the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care will come to the House to explain to me and my constituents why my local urgent care centre, which looks after my community, was closed at night 18 months ago without consultation, and now board papers have gone forward to permanently close it...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Inward Investment (9 May 2018)

Mike Penning: One of the reasons why there is so much inward investment in Northern Ireland is the peace created by our soldiers, policemen and special forces, with whom I had the honour of serving in the 1970s. If we are to honour the bravery of people such as Robert Nairac and my other colleagues who lost their lives in the Province, the consultation should flatly say, “We are not having a...

Orkambi and Cystic Fibrosis — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (19 Mar 2018)

Mike Penning: It is a pleasure to take part in this debate. Like everybody in this room, I have constituents who suffer from this terrible genetic disease. We live in a society where sometimes those who shout loudest get heard more, but interestingly, it is not possible for those who suffer from this terrible disease and their families and loved-ones to have orchestrated the petition. Members of the...
