LGBT Action Plan (3 Jul 2018)

James Duddridge: I suspect that I may get the same answer, but may I urge the Minister to be less diplomatic and have a chat to the Foreign Secretary to see whether we can insist on every high commission and embassy flying the rainbow flag, particularly in countries where homosexuality is illegal?

Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office: Government Procurement: Small Businesses (27 Jun 2018)

Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office: Government Procurement: Small Businesses (27 Jun 2018)

James Duddridge: I thank the Minister for that reply. Specifically, how will coastal towns such as Southend-on-Sea benefit from the changes in this procurement procedure?

Business of the House (24 May 2018)

James Duddridge: May we have a debate on how the independent complaints procedure for this House is progressing?

Business of the House (10 May 2018)

James Duddridge: Mr Speaker, given your manifesto commitment to go by 22 June, may we have a debate in Government time about what we want from a Speaker and what type of Speaker we want, before we move to a secondary discussion about who we want to replace you?

Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [Lords]: Periodic reports on exercise of power to make regulations under section 1 (1 May 2018)

James Duddridge: Clearly, it is important to remember that this is not just an overseas territories issue but a global one. Is the hon. Lady worried that this legislation will just displace all the activity to states such as Delaware, which do not have this transparency, and we will not gain any of the real benefits?

Windrush: Rating (Property in Common Occupation) and Council Tax (Empty Dwellings) Bill (23 Apr 2018)

James Duddridge: I apologise for not being here for the whole debate, Madam Deputy Speaker—I have been chairing a Bill Committee. What my hon. Friend is saying is worrying me, because a problem of this nature may arise in Southend and we are running a fine budget. Has he quantified, by area, how much money is involved? Finances are already troublesome in terms of local councils trying to deliver the...

Windrush: Rating (Property in Common Occupation) and Council Tax (Empty Dwellings) Bill (23 Apr 2018)

James Duddridge: My hon. Friend anticipates me, because at one stage he said there was perhaps no requirement to change the law, and I was about to leap to my feet. The reason I hesitated was that I was going to support him in any amendment he might table to look at not only existing residential property during that period, but shops above flats. In Southend High Street there are many properties that many...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Diplomatic Service: Funding (27 Mar 2018)

James Duddridge: Is there a possibility of using some of the Brexit dividend to further expand our diplomatic posts, particularly in the Commonwealth?

Hate Crime: Treatment of House of Commons Staff (12 Mar 2018)

James Duddridge: Is it appropriate for Mr Speaker to remain in his place when there are allegations against him, which he is trying to suppress, using taxpayers’ funds, by sending letters through Speaker’s Counsel?

Government Policy on Russia (6 Mar 2018)

James Duddridge: Is the Foreign Secretary concerned, as I am, about future Russian attacks on critical infrastructure in the UK? I am conscious that the Economic Secretary to the Treasury is probably here more as the Member of Parliament for Salisbury, but is the Foreign Secretary particularly concerned about financial services infrastructure? As we carry less cash and cheque books, we are reliant on our...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (6 Mar 2018)

James Duddridge: On a point of order, Mr Speaker.

Aid Sector: Safeguarding (20 Feb 2018)

James Duddridge: I thank the Secretary of State for the truly amazing work she is doing. That is quite often said in this House, but having sat through three and a half hours in the Select Committee listening to Oxfam, I came away realising how appalling the situation really is. May I, however, urge her not to leap into action too quickly, given, horrifically, that we have no understanding at the moment of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: New Channel Link (20 Feb 2018)

James Duddridge: In 1971, when French and English counterparts starting talking about the channel tunnel, they were mocked. Can we have more vision and less mockery about ideas on how we can take forward our future relationships?

Local Government Finance (7 Feb 2018)

James Duddridge: I welcome the 10 county-wide pilots. Will the Secretary of State consider extending the pilots to include small unitaries such as Southend and Thurrock or areas of the county such as south Essex, if the whole Essex plan does not work?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (29 Jan 2018)

James Duddridge: What is the Department doing to help children with special educational needs on their pathway to adulthood and, where appropriate, into the workforce?

Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority: Electoral Commission (23 Jan 2018)

James Duddridge: I will be brief, because I know that the House wants to move on quickly. I oppose the motion. The Electoral Commission is an incredibly important body, and I ask Members to reflect on why the issue has been brought to the House. It is because it is for the full House to make a decision, rather than relying on our Front Benchers and the official channels. I do not believe that Sir Ian Kennedy...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Thames Estuary 2050 Growth Commission (22 Jan 2018)

James Duddridge: What steps the Government are taking to ensure that the Thames Estuary 2050 Growth Commission takes account of the needs of south Essex.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Thames Estuary 2050 Growth Commission (22 Jan 2018)

James Duddridge: I thank my hon. Friend for that reply. London Southend airport, as we like to refer to it, will have a major impact on the commission. What role does he see London Southend airport playing in boosting growth and productivity across the whole of south Essex?
