Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action: Iran (19 Oct 2021)

Stephen Crabb: My right hon. Friend is correct. The JCPOA has done nothing to dissuade the Iranian regime from conducting those wider activities in the middle east, undermining democratic states and the social and economic order of countries in the region, and sponsoring proxies. Last week, the scenes of street battles that we saw in Beirut raised the distressing possibility of a much-feared civil war in...

Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action: Iran (19 Oct 2021)

Stephen Crabb: My right hon. Friend is right to draw attention to the position of Israel and the fears and concerns within Israel. However, it is not just Israel; numerous other countries throughout the region live in fear of an Iranian regime armed with nuclear weapons. It is a view widely held in security and academic circles that Iran’s breakout time—the time required to produce enough weapons-grade...

Stephen Crabb: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what estimate he has made of the number of people furloughed continuously from 1 March 2020.

UK Gas Market (20 Sep 2021)

Stephen Crabb: The Secretary of State is entirely right that the UK is far better placed than most other European countries when it comes to the sources and diversity of its gas supplies, not least thanks to the two major liquefied natural gas terminals in my constituency at Milford Haven. Will he join me in paying tribute to the teams working at the South Hook and Dragon LNG terminals and also make a...

Universal Credit and Working Tax Credits (15 Sep 2021)

Stephen Crabb: I will keep my remarks fairly short. My views have not really changed since the last time we debated and voted on this issue. On that occasion I voted against the Government for the first time ever, because I felt so strongly about the course of action that we were intending to follow and the impact that it would have on workers on low incomes and their families up and down the country. The...

Universal Credit and Working Tax Credits (15 Sep 2021)

Stephen Crabb: I will give way just to give myself a bit more time.

Universal Credit and Working Tax Credits (15 Sep 2021)

Stephen Crabb: The hon. Lady makes a strong point. We on this side of the House do not believe that benefits alone are a route out of poverty. We emphasise things like work and the importance of education, but what a scandal it is that we are still churning out so many 16, 17 and 18-year-olds whom employers reject and do not want to see because they do not see them as fit for work. We also emphasise the...

Universal Credit and Working Tax Credits (15 Sep 2021)

Stephen Crabb: On universal credit, I have spoken to dozens and dozens of work coaches all over the country. Every single one of them has told me, without a shadow of a doubt, that universal credit is a better benefit than what was before. It is down to the enthusiasm and the skills of work coaches, to a large extent, that universal credit has been such a success during this very difficult period.

Universal Credit and Working Tax Credits (15 Sep 2021)

Stephen Crabb: Will the Secretary of State give way?

Universal Credit and Working Tax Credits (15 Sep 2021)

Stephen Crabb: I am grateful to my right hon. Friend for giving way again; she is being incredibly generous with her time this afternoon. The central argument of the letter that we sent to the Secretary of State and other colleagues in Government was about trying to retain the investment in universal credit. There are different ways to spend that money. All the evidence that I have seen suggests that...

Universal Credit and Working Tax Credits (15 Sep 2021)

Stephen Crabb: Actually, that is a really important point because the hon. Gentleman was guilty in his comments on the previous welfare system of looking at it through rose-tinted lenses. There were huge problems with the previous welfare system. It caught hundreds of thousands of families in poverty traps, and at every opportunity since 2010 the Labour party resisted our efforts to reform welfare, to make...

Wales: Net Zero Emissions Target (15 Sep 2021)

Stephen Crabb: What steps the Government are taking to help Wales achieve the net zero emissions target.

Wales: Net Zero Emissions Target (15 Sep 2021)

Stephen Crabb: The drive to net zero presents huge challenges to industry all across south Wales, especially for us in Pembrokeshire where the oil and gas plants support thousands of high quality jobs. What further steps can the UK Government take to help the energy sector to adapt, taking advantage of new opportunities in hydrogen but also plans for floating offshore wind? The truth is that we are going...

HGV Driver Shortages (13 Sep 2021)

Stephen Crabb: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker—[Hon. Members: “Ooh!”] Apologies; I meant to say Mr Speaker. I am grateful to my right hon. Friend for setting out the range of measures that he is taking to address the problem of HGV driver shortages. He is right to emphasise that this problem predates covid and Brexit, and has been growing for a considerable length of time. He mentioned the role of...
