Vaccinations: Developing Countries — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (13 Jun 2018)

Stephen Crabb: Thank you, Mr Evans, for calling me to speak again. By way of wrapping up, I will just thank the Front Benchers. I thank my right hon. Friend the Minister for that very useful update he has given at the end of this debate. I also thank the other Front-Bench spokespeople, the hon. Members for Dundee West (Chris Law) and for Birmingham, Edgbaston (Preet Kaur Gill). It has been a very useful...

Vaccinations: Developing Countries — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (13 Jun 2018)

Stephen Crabb: I am grateful to my right hon. Friend the Minister for that response. Finally, Mr Evans, I thank you. As ever, you have chaired this afternoon wonderfully. Diolch yn fawr.

Vaccinations: Developing Countries — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (13 Jun 2018)

Stephen Crabb: Will the Minister address the question asked by several hon. Members about why the levels of inoculation seem to have plateaued internationally? Is that correct and, if so, what might be the underlying causes? I hope he will forgive me if he had planned to come on to that in the next few moments.

Vaccinations: Developing Countries — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (13 Jun 2018)

Stephen Crabb: I am enjoying listening to the hon. Gentleman’s speech. He captures well the sense of awe and wonder around some of the achievements that have been notched up in recent decades. Does he agree that we should be telling some of those stories in the school curriculum? As we think about Britain’s future global role, we should think about how to inspire a new generation of young...

Vaccinations: Developing Countries — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (13 Jun 2018)

Stephen Crabb: On the subject of inspiring young people, is he aware of programmes such as the ONE campaign’s youth ambassadors programme, which links in young people with an interest and uses them to tell a story back to their own peer group about some of these exciting developments?

Vaccinations: Developing Countries — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (13 Jun 2018)

Stephen Crabb: I beg to move, That this House has considered the economic effect of vaccinations in developing countries. It is an enormous privilege to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Evans. I am grateful to have secured time to lead what will probably be a short debate, but I hope a positive and useful one, on a subject on which this Government and successive British Governments of different colours...

Vaccinations: Developing Countries — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (13 Jun 2018)

Stephen Crabb: I have heard that said, and I will go on to refer to the importance of reaching the hard-to-reach groups. There is evidence that that is the way to get, to put it crudely, more bang for our buck on the vaccinations spend, because the threat of outbreaks of killer diseases is higher for some of those isolated communities and families than for those elsewhere. My hon. Friend makes a useful...

Vaccinations: Developing Countries — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (13 Jun 2018)

Stephen Crabb: My hon. Friend, who knows an enormous amount about this field, makes an important point. We are essentially dealing here with a case of market failure, where markets in the purest sense do not work in bringing through vaccine development and distribution in some of the poorest countries. I will talk about that later. I am about to talk about GAVI, the Vaccine Alliance; the model on which it...

Vaccinations: Developing Countries — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (13 Jun 2018)

Stephen Crabb: My hon. Friend makes an excellent point and I absolutely agree with him. That is exactly the kind of research and evidence that the Department and other bodies need to provide as those who believe in and support our overseas aid spending seek to make and restate the case for it over and over again. It is a powerful message with which to challenge sceptics and cynics. In 2016, Johns Hopkins...

Vaccinations: Developing Countries — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (13 Jun 2018)

Stephen Crabb: My hon. Friend makes an extremely important point. There are well established networks nationally in the UK and internationally, which bring policy makers together with academics, scientists and researchers who look at these issues. Surely within that there needs to be a role for people with a trade focus to link that investment angle into it as well. There would probably be a lot of...

Written Answers — Home Office: Members: Correspondence (11 Jun 2018)

Stephen Crabb: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, when he plans to reply to the letters of 1 and 21 May 2018 from the right hon. Member for Preseli Pembrokeshire on the case of Melissa Siso Rodrigues.

Hezbollah’s Rocket Arsenal: Southern Lebanon — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (6 Jun 2018)

Stephen Crabb: I am listening to the Minister with great interest, as I always do. Just a moment ago, was he drawing an equivalence between Israeli overflights of Lebanese territory and Hezbollah’s stockpile of 150,000 rockets?

Hezbollah’s Rocket Arsenal: Southern Lebanon — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (6 Jun 2018)

Stephen Crabb: On the subject of Hezbollah being a terrorist organisation, does my hon. Friend share my view that the distinction that we choose to make on our side—that there is a military and a civil wing to Hezbollah—is entirely artificial and that Hezbollah sees itself as a unified terrorist military organisation?

Nuclear Power (4 Jun 2018)

Stephen Crabb: I welcome my right hon. Friend’s statement. He will know that the Wylfa Newydd project will be the largest construction project in Wales for more than a generation, so what discussions is he having with the Welsh Government to ensure that we maximise the opportunities for the Welsh supply chain, which will be the backbone of delivering this important project in Anglesey?

UK Relations with Qatar — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (23 May 2018)

Stephen Crabb: The hon. Gentleman is making an interesting speech. Has he sat down with any of the diplomats at the embassy in London and had this discussion with them? If he has, what feeling did he get from them?

UK Relations with Qatar — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (23 May 2018)

Stephen Crabb: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Southend West (Sir David Amess) on securing this timely and important debate, and on the brilliant job he did in describing where we are at in UK relations with Qatar and our diverse range of mutual interests in continuing to foster a close and growing relationship. It is also a pleasure to follow my good friend, the right hon. Member for Orkney...
