Regulation of Property Agents (18 Oct 2017)

Philip Hollobone: Leaseholders in Kettering will warmly welcome the launch of the Government’s consultation, particularly those who live in blocks of flats where multiple leasehold interests are involved. I am thinking in particular of a block in the middle of Kettering that is in an appalling state of disrepair and has become a magnet for crime. The leaseholders there have no possibility of selling...

Devolved Powers in Scotland (17 Oct 2017)

Philip Hollobone: The rules of engagement in these debates are that Her Majesty’s Government decide which Minister will respond.

Devolved Powers in Scotland (17 Oct 2017)

Philip Hollobone: Order.

Devolved Powers in Scotland (17 Oct 2017)

Philip Hollobone: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his point of order. As I understand it, Hansard is an almost verbatim record of verbal contributions in the House. It does not record attendance. Members may be in the Chamber without making a verbal contribution.

Devolved Powers in Scotland (17 Oct 2017)

Philip Hollobone: We now come to the first of the speeches from the Front-Bench spokespeople. I call Mr Tommy Sheppard.

Devolved Powers in Scotland (17 Oct 2017)

Philip Hollobone: Order. I call Martin Whitfield.

Devolved Powers in Scotland (17 Oct 2017)

Philip Hollobone: Order. This is an hour-long debate. Lots of Back Benchers have put in to speak. The time limit is already looking like it will be three minutes; that time limit will go down if there are interventions. I say now that if a Member intervenes, they will not catch my eye to be called to make a speech.

Devolved Powers in Scotland (17 Oct 2017)

Philip Hollobone: The debate ends at 5.30 pm. Mr Kerr has three minutes to sum up at the end. The guideline limits for the Front-Bench speeches are five minutes for Mr Sheppard and the SNP, five minutes for Mr Sweeney and Her Majesty’s official Opposition, and 10 minutes for the Minister. That means that I have to call the Front-Bench spokespeople at seven minutes past five. There are 19 minutes between...

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

Philip Hollobone: The power vacuum in Libya is sucking in economic migration from the rest of Africa, causing deaths in the Mediterranean as migrants try to flee to the European Union. What can the Foreign Secretary do to make sure that the international community recognises the scale of the problem that it faces in this benighted part of the world?

Iran: Vauxhall (Redundancies) (16 Oct 2017)

Philip Hollobone: To lose 400 of the 1,800 local jobs is devastating news for Ellesmere Port, but I am struggling to understand the reasons given by the plant’s French owner, PSA. The Government have said that the UK automotive sector is the most productive in Europe, with 50% higher productivity than overall UK manufacturing productivity, and that last year saw a 17-year high in the number of cars built...

Iran (16 Oct 2017)

Philip Hollobone: I recognise, understand and respect the cross-party consensus reflected in the vast majority of questions in favour of this agreement, but may I just put the alternative point of view to the Minister? This is not a permanent fix to Iran’s nuclear weapons programme. Limits on that programme begin to wind down in just eight years’ time. In the meantime, Iran is looking to construct...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Neighbourhood Policing (16 Oct 2017)

Philip Hollobone: Northamptonshire has 1,242 police officers, 488 specials, 860 police staff and 95 police community support officers. Will the Home Secretary congratulate Northamptonshire police on starting a drive to recruit even more police officers this year?

Business of the House (12 Oct 2017)

Philip Hollobone: Mr Speaker, you were 100% right to have said in a recent speech that the House of Commons belongs to all its Members on behalf of the people and not just to those Members who happen to serve in ministerial office and that therefore this House should have the ability, in cases of emergency, to recall itself and not wait for the Government to do so. Does the Leader of the House agree, given...

Prisons Policy/HMP Long Lartin (12 Oct 2017)

Philip Hollobone: If we want to significantly reduce the number of foreign nationals in our prisons, we need compulsory prisoner transfer agreements in place with countries around the world, so that these people are sent back to serve their sentence in prison in their own country—rather than being sent back when they have served the sentence already in this country. I understand that about half the...

International Trade: Car Exports (12 Oct 2017)

Philip Hollobone: Given that this country voted to leave the European Union, is it not the duty of every Member to talk up the British economy and the chances that are available to British manufacturing to exploit the new opportunities that will be presented to it around the world?

Women and Equalities: Domestic Violence: Police Resources (12 Oct 2017)

Philip Hollobone: Which police force responds to domestic violence the best and which responds to it the worst, and will the Minister get them together in the same room at the same time so that one can inform the other?

Women and Equalities: Topical Questions (12 Oct 2017)

Philip Hollobone: The publication of this week’s racial disparity audit contained many interesting findings, including that Chinese pupils do particularly well at school and that white British males are under-represented in university applications. How will the Minister promote and replicate the first issue and tackle the second?

Higher Education Funding (11 Oct 2017)

Philip Hollobone: It is exciting that record funding is now going into higher education, and it is absolutely right, of course, as the Minister said, that we get value for money from our universities. Does he share my concern, therefore, that the number of senior university figures being paid each year salaries in excess of that of the Prime Minister seems to be spiralling out of control?

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Devolved Administrations: Brexit (11 Oct 2017)

Philip Hollobone: Given that there is no devolved Executive in Northern Ireland at present, how are views from Northern Ireland being fed into this process?
