Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Technology Companies: Tax (11 Sep 2018)

Stephen Crabb: The question is whether there is a level playing field. When my right hon. Friend hears that bookshops pay around 11 times more total tax than Amazon on the same £100 of turnover, does he think we are striking the right balance to enable our town centres and communities to thrive?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (10 Sep 2018)

Stephen Crabb: One of the most effective engines of social mobility in this country remains the Army. Does my right hon.

Brexit Negotiations and No Deal Contingency Planning (4 Sep 2018)

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Peace Process: Israel and Palestine (4 Sep 2018)

Stephen Crabb: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the single most important thing for both unlocking the peace process and bringing relief to the desperate lives of Palestinians in Gaza is for Hamas to renounce violence and terror, and turn its back on those ways?

EU Withdrawal Agreement: Legislation (24 Jul 2018)

Stephen Crabb: It is becoming increasingly fashionable to criticise the Northern Irish backstop as either a tactical blunder that we have made, or some kind of dastardly trick that the EU is playing on us, so will my right hon. Friend confirm that the backstop remains important precisely because we are a Government who take our obligations towards Northern Ireland seriously, who value Northern Ireland, and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Cross-border Rail Services (18 Jul 2018)

Stephen Crabb: Has my hon. Friend had the chance to speak to the management of Great Western Railway about the total shambles that was its rail service last Sunday afternoon, when thousands of passengers faced cancelled or disrupted trains due to staffing problems arising from the World cup final? England did not qualify for the final and Wales was not even at the tournament, so it should not have led to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Demolition of Khan al-Ahmar (4 Jul 2018)

Stephen Crabb: Many of us on both sides of this House who call ourselves friends of Israel rightly hail that nation as a bastion of liberal values in a troubled region, so does my right hon.

UK-Israel Trade — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Stephen Crabb: My hon. Friend is making an extremely important point.

Gaza: Humanitarian Situation — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (26 Jun 2018)

Gaza: Humanitarian Situation — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (26 Jun 2018)

Stephen Crabb: The hon. Gentleman is making important points about the desperate humanitarian conditions faced by Gazans. However, unless he is willing to mention that the disruption to energy supplies for Gazans has much to do with the ongoing dispute between Hamas in Gaza and the Palestinian Authority in the west bank, that the Rafah crossing is hardly ever opened to allow humanitarian supplies in from...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Israel and Palestine (26 Jun 2018)

Energy Policy (25 Jun 2018)

Stephen Crabb: Even Conservative Members who have been the strongest supporters of the lagoon project have always known that there was a serious value-for-money question to be answered. Will my right hon.

Leaving the Eu: Airbus Risk Assessment (25 Jun 2018)

Stephen Crabb: Is not the truth that the kind of Brexit deal that will fully safeguard our industrial base will be one that requires significant compromises? Does my right hon. Friend agree that we are fast approaching the moment when we need to spell out, for the benefit of business and industry, what those compromises look like?

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Music Venues (21 Jun 2018)

Stephen Crabb: As thousands of fans pour into Wales this weekend for the Ed Sheeran concerts, what would my hon. Friend say to a disabled constituent of mine who was left incredibly distressed after paying more than £450 more for her tickets, owing to the so-called drip pricing tactic that Viagogo continues to use? I really thought that the Government were making progress on this. Why are people still...
