Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill: EU VAT area and pre-commencement requirements (16 Jul 2018)

Justine Greening: I should say first that I recognise the importance of the Bill and why it is necessary if we are leaving the European Union. However, many of the amendments reflect the fact that, regrettably, the White Paper simply does not represent the clearcut, deliverable strategy that I believe our country needs—it is a fudge. As my right hon. Friend the Member for Chelsea and Fulham (Greg Hands)...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Transport Infrastructure (5 Jul 2018)

Justine Greening: A second entrance at Putney station would not only ease congestion, but would finally give connectivity with East Putney tube station. This project is supported financially by Wandsworth council. Can the Secretary of State, following our recent meeting, look carefully at what support his Department can give this scheme so it can finally get the go-ahead?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (5 Jul 2018)

Justine Greening: Heathrow flights are capped at 480,000 flights a year. That was set as a condition of the 2001 terminal 5 planning consent. Will the Secretary of State confirm that there are no plans to override the existing cap for existing runways?

LGBT Action Plan (3 Jul 2018)

Justine Greening: It is perfect timing to launch the action plan and survey results in advance of London Pride this weekend. It shows that while this country has come a very long way—I am very proud of the fact that it was our Government who brought forward legislation on same-sex marriage—there is still a very long way to go. My right hon. Friend mentioned one of the most shocking statistics, but...

Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

Justine Greening: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Even though this was a monumentally important vote, the House has had less than four hours to debate it, and in practice there were just over three hours for Back Benchers to contribute. Given how important the vote was, is that acceptable?

Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

Justine Greening: My right hon. Friend is making important points. We have just seen the very first non-stop direct flight from Sydney to London. Does he agree that there is no reason for people to want to hub unnecessarily, and that it is therefore wrong to have a 20th century hub strategy instead of a 21st century direct strategy?

Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

Justine Greening: My right hon. and learned Friend has made an important point. The problem is that the assessment would come after Heathrow had spent probably billions of pounds on a runway that it was then unable to use, and it would seek to recover that from the taxpayer.

Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

Justine Greening: It is a pleasure to follow the Chair of the Transport Committee, the hon. Member for Nottingham South (Lilian Greenwood), who made a very powerful speech. I do not think that the proposal before the House will be seen as Parliament’s finest hour. It is very easy to dismiss the contributions of MPs who perhaps have communities overflown by Heathrow planes, but nearly 3 million Londoners...

Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

Justine Greening: Absolutely. This requires cross-party support, which is simply not there. Heathrow’s problem is that it is a hub airport in the wrong place, which means that it is expensive. Passenger charges are 40% more expensive than at rival European airports. That is why Leeds Bradford routes have been cut. It is not because there is not space—it already has space—but because those...

Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

Justine Greening: No, Leeds Bradford has tended to hub out of Schiphol because it is cheaper. This is about economics, which matter. The bottom line is that in expanding Heathrow the economics and the expensiveness of the airport become worse, putting more pressure on domestic flights, with a loss of flights to emerging markets. Flights to places such as Dar es Salaam and Osaka, for example, have been cut. In...

Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

Justine Greening: That is an important point, and it has not yet been raised—PSOs will require subsidies. For example, in Cornwall, Cornish taxpayers are subsidising the PSO, but those flights are to Gatwick. If Heathrow has a PSO, it will be way more expensive for taxpayers, and they are unaware of that.

Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

Justine Greening: The Transport Committee’s analysis showed that Scotland will actually lose 2,700 international flights per annum as a result of Heathrow expansion, and that flights will be fewer than they otherwise would have been.

Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

Justine Greening: My right hon. Friend has said that Manchester airport will gain from this proposal, but the reality is that the modelling that his own Department and the Transport Select Committee have done shows that Manchester airport will have 11% or 12% fewer international flights by 2030 as a result of the Heathrow expansion. I spoke to the chief executive of Manchester airport today, and he explained...

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

Justine Greening: Is the Prime Minister aware that Birmingham airport will have 15% fewer international flights than otherwise, and that Manchester airport will have 11% fewer, Newcastle 14% will have fewer and Bournemouth will have more than 40% fewer, by 2030 as a result of Heathrow expansion? How do we help investment in our regions by suffocating the regional airports’ growth?

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

Justine Greening: I agree with what my right hon. and learned Friend is saying. I think that, far from suggesting that his amendment was wrong, my hon. Friend the Member for North East Somerset (Mr Rees-Mogg) gave the very reason why it is sensible to adopt this structural process to deal with the different scenarios that the House may face.

Airports National Policy Statement — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (7 Jun 2018)

Justine Greening: Will the Minister give way?

Airports National Policy Statement — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (7 Jun 2018)

Justine Greening: I understand the point that my hon. Friend is making, but some of the detailed questions, as he has just called them, are actually questions about the feasibility of this project more broadly, and that is why they should be answered sooner and not later.

Airports National Policy Statement — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (7 Jun 2018)

Justine Greening: Will the Minister give way again, just briefly?

Airports National Policy Statement — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (7 Jun 2018)

Justine Greening: Again, we have had a million consultations over the years. The problem is that we are never listened to.

Airports National Policy Statement — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (7 Jun 2018)

Justine Greening: I know the SNP are all for Scottish independence, but I am worried that they will get it by losing every single flight out of the country. I am not sure that is the kind of independence Scotland really wants. I would have thought that the SNP would be better off seizing the opportunity to develop a genuine Scottish airports strategy. One of the other airport CEOs who is concerned about...
