Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Natural Disasters: Emergency Funds (18 Oct 2017)

James Duddridge: Would a cross-departmental unit focused on the overseas territories, staffed by DFID, the Foreign Office and the Ministry of Defence, help to solve some of the problems of co-ordination and provide a better response to our OTs?

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

James Duddridge: What plans he has to engage with parliamentarians before the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in the UK in April 2018.

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

James Duddridge: I thank the Minister for that reply, specifically because it advertises an event this afternoon offering colleagues the opportunity to find out more about the forum. What specific opportunities will there be for parliamentarians at CHOGM and in the two years after CHOGM, when the UK is in the chair?

Supported Housing Funding — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (10 Oct 2017)

James Duddridge: I thank my hon. Friend for giving way. I wanted to make a narrow point about Estuary Housing Association, as my constituency is affected by it. However, is he aware that, since he started his speech and said that half an hour for this debate was inadequate, about 60 or 70 Members have arrived, chairs have had to be brought in at the back and here on the Conservative Benches I am joined by...

Government Policy on the Proceedings of the House: Gypsies and Travellers and Local Communities (9 Oct 2017)

James Duddridge: I personally am not tolerant. My constituents are not tolerant. When Gunners Park was littered, when Trinity football ground was paved over with a travelling community, and when Cherry Orchard Park was invaded, my constituents were not tolerant. Can we have a three strikes and out rule? These people have expensive land cruisers and big trucks. If they park on council land or private land...

Uk Plans for Leaving the EU (9 Oct 2017)

James Duddridge: Given that Germany and France export more to us than we export to them, what discussions has the Prime Minister had with her French and German counterparts? Has she asked them to pressurise the EU institutions to secure a good deal for those countries, which means negotiating faster, more effectively, and with a shared understanding of what we can both gain from this deal?

Hurricane Irma (7 Sep 2017)

James Duddridge: My thoughts go out to people such as Victor Banks, Orlando Smith and Don Romeo, whom I worked closely with and have been trying to contact. Does this immediate crisis not highlight a conundrum? While the overseas territories have preferential treatment and first call on the DFID budget, the nature of middle-income status does not recognise the real environmental risks that small island states...

Summer Adjournment (20 Jul 2017)

James Duddridge: It is a pleasure to follow the pop and fizz of the soft drinks speech by the hon. Member for North Tyneside (Mary Glindon), although I do urge caution. As a type 2 diabetic, I am sympathetic to not having too many sugary drinks, but there are lots of evils in those soft drinks that do not have sugar in them. When walking around my local Asda or another supermarket, I note the paradox that it...

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Ticketing Information (13 Jul 2017)

James Duddridge: What steps his Department is taking to simplify ticketing information for rail passengers.

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Ticketing Information (13 Jul 2017)

James Duddridge: Southend has two train lines and multiple stations within the Southend boundary. Would it not be simpler if the same ticket could be used on both lines, which would be good for residents and visitors alike? It would clear things up for visitors, allowing them to do journeys into Southend and then pop in somewhere else on the way back to London.

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Topical Questions (13 Jul 2017)

James Duddridge: With Southend airport booming, there are great opportunities for associated business parks and businesses around that expanding airport. Will the Secretary of State agree to look at how we can expand business around successful regional airports?

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Aid Programmes: Africa (12 Jul 2017)

James Duddridge: In welcoming the fab decision by the Prime Minister to appoint a joint Minister from the Department for International Development and the Foreign Office to sub-Saharan Africa, will the Secretary of State confirm what her priorities are for driving forward Her Majesty’s Government’s priorities in Africa, rather than just DFID and FCO priorities?

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Zimbabwe (11 Jul 2017)

James Duddridge: The policy of incremental engagement with Zimbabwe is obviously the best—sometimes an unpalatable best—policy, but will the Minister consider visiting Zimbabwe in the near term, as that would be a great step forward and would perhaps put the UK in a better position for the relationship in the longer term?

Exiting the European Union and Global Trade (6 Jul 2017)

James Duddridge: I compliment my hon. Friend on his work as chair of the all-party group and in facilitating greater knowledge of Hong Kong. I urge him to touch on the trading relationships between mainland China and Hong Kong, and how the latter can be seen as setting the pace for the former.

Exiting the European Union and Global Trade (6 Jul 2017)

James Duddridge: I will shock the Front Benchers by saying that I agree with absolutely everything the hon. Member for Bishop Auckland (Helen Goodman) said—about my hon. Friend the Member for Hornchurch and Upminster (Julia Dockerill), who is indeed truly fabulous. Hon. Friends and new friends, we all cuddled around her in what is now known as doughnut. I am used to being part of a doughnut, but never...

Exiting the European Union and Global Trade (6 Jul 2017)

James Duddridge: From around the world.

Exiting the European Union and Global Trade (6 Jul 2017)

James Duddridge: When we are importing more than we are exporting, surely it is easier to get a deal with our European colleagues, whose interest appears to be in continuing to export to us.

Exiting the European Union and Global Trade (6 Jul 2017)

James Duddridge: Quite often one hears in the press, and sometimes erroneously in this House, talk of “falling back” on WTO rules. Is that not a falsehood? WTO rules form the basis of any agreement going forward; they are not something to fall back on if there is no deal.

International Trade: Commonwealth Countries (6 Jul 2017)

James Duddridge: What recent discussions he has had with his counterparts in other Commonwealth countries on the future of trade and investment between the UK and those countries.

International Trade: Commonwealth Countries (6 Jul 2017)

James Duddridge: I thank the Secretary of State for that answer. The Commonwealth is particularly up for doing trade with the UK, especially in Africa. The Secretary of State referred to intra-Africa trade. Can we be even bolder and encourage a continental—intra-Africa—free trade deal not only with our Commonwealth friends but going beyond our Commonwealth friends?
