The Economy (24 Oct 2019)

Jeremy Wright: I will.

The Economy (24 Oct 2019)

Jeremy Wright: I agree with my hon. Friend. In the interest of saving time, he takes me directly to my next point, which is that we in the UK are well placed to do the work to which he refers. We are respected not just for our scientific expertise, but also for our regulatory expertise. I hope very much that the Government will engage fully in that task. Finally, I urge the Government to maintain their...

Prime Minister’s Statement (19 Oct 2019)

Jeremy Wright: The Prime Minister said at the outset of his statement that the debate about our membership of the European Union has not just paralysed our politics but profoundly divided our society. The longer we have that debate, the more difficult it will be to reunite our country. Is it not incumbent on all of us in this place today to act in a way that seeks to settle that debate, not perpetuate...

Racism in Football (15 Oct 2019)

Jeremy Wright: I, too, congratulate my hon. Friend on his appointment and agree wholeheartedly with all that has been said so far. Is it not important that, in the support we give to players, we send a signal not just from this place but from football authorities, national and international, that if those players choose to stay on the pitch, in the face of this awful abuse, they will have our admiration for...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Online Disinformation (3 Oct 2019)

Jeremy Wright: I warmly welcome my hon. Friend and his fellow Ministers to their leadership roles in this remarkable Department. I urge my hon. Friend to translate the online harms White Paper into legislation as swiftly as possible, and invite him to agree that doing so is not just good for the United Kingdom, because it will create a regulator with the authority to enforce a proper duty of care on online...

Domestic Abuse Bill (2 Oct 2019)

Jeremy Wright: rose—

Domestic Abuse Bill (2 Oct 2019)

Jeremy Wright: I am very grateful to my right hon. and learned Friend and I congratulate him on the way in which he is making the case for this very important Bill. My right hon. and learned Friend has talked about the confidence that we need to give domestic abuse victims in the experience they are likely to have within the criminal justice system. He is right to highlight special measures, and I know he...

Health Infrastructure Plan (30 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Wright: I welcome my hon. Friend to his new post and, of course, I welcome the investment he has announced, but he will recognise that, however new the hospital, being an in-patient can be a profoundly distressing experience for someone with dementia. Good design can help tremendously, so will he do all he can to ensure that the best possible design standards are used when building these hospitals,...

Legal Advice: Prorogation (25 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Wright: Is it not important, even in the course of argument on matters as important as these, to remember why we have the constitutional conventions that we do, and that Governments are entitled, as any other organisation or individual is, to receive legal advice in private? If they do not, and if those who ask for it to be published get their way, that legal advice will become increasingly guarded,...

Prorogation of Parliament — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (9 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Wright: As the hon. Lady knows, I agree with the thrust of her argument that we should spend the bulk of the five weeks of possible Prorogation here discussing these issues, rather than elsewhere. Would it not be better if hon. Members on both sides of the Chamber made it clear we that we would use that time to discuss the best way for us to leave the European Union, as my hon. Friend the Member for...

Prorogation of Parliament — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (9 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Wright: I agree with my hon. Friend that the public are keen for us to move on to the domestic agenda. Is it not the case, however, that we are talking about having a Queen’s Speech either in October, or in November, which would be after Brexit has taken place, given the Prime Minister’s determination to leave on 31 October? As my hon. Friend says, we may leave with no deal, and I agree that it...

Prorogation of Parliament — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (9 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Wright: I am very grateful to my hon. Friend for giving way; he is being very generous with his time. Again, I agree that it would be wrong to postpone our departure from the EU beyond 31 October. If we leave then, we leave either with or without a deal. If we do not have a general election—we will know by the end of this evening whether we are to have one—we will prorogue. Is the point not that...

HS2 (5 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Wright: I am not sure it is the entirely appropriate expression to congratulate my right hon. Friend on inheriting responsibility for HS2, but I wholeheartedly congratulate him on becoming the Secretary of State. In agreeing entirely with what my right hon. Friend the Member for Aylesbury (Mr Lidington) said, may I press the Secretary State on the point he made about enabling works? As he knows,...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill: Duties in connection with the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union (4 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Wright: As the hon. Gentleman knows from the Second Reading debate, I have a good deal of sympathy with the approach he is setting out. I appreciate, too, that he is recommending to the House that we pass amendments 6 and 7 as well as new clause 1. If I were minded to support new clause 1 but not amendments 6 and 7, would I effectively be presenting an option that everyone in the House could choose...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill (4 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Wright: Will the right hon. Lady give way?

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill (4 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Wright: I thank the right hon. Lady for giving way and pay tribute to her for the way in which she has sought compromise. Many of us have voted for deals of various kinds, and I agree with what she says about the approach set out by the hon. Member for Aberavon (Stephen Kinnock), which has considerable potential. Does she agree that one of the other reasons why we should seek to resolve this by way...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill (4 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Wright: Perhaps I can start by agreeing with something that others have said, which is that, regardless of one’s views on this subject, the right hon. Member for Leeds Central (Hilary Benn), my right hon. Friend the Member for North East Bedfordshire (Alistair Burt) and others who spoken in this debate are acting the national interest in bringing up these issues in the way that they do. They do...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill (4 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Wright: I certainly agree with my hon. Friend that minorities should not be dismissed, and frankly, the way in which we conduct this debate should reflect the fact that 48% of the public voted in a different way from the prevailing outcome. I do not think that we have succeeded in that as a Parliament or in a broader national debate. The truth is that that we—Parliament—set out the rules for this...

Education Funding (3 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Wright: The Secretary of State’s announcement of additional funds is very welcome, but as governors and head teachers need to plan in advance does he agree that what he said about the predictability and understandability of the funding system is almost as significant? Will he ensure that as the system is designed in detail he keeps an eye on ensuring that it stays so?

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Government Departments: Digital Technology (24 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Wright: I refer the Hon Member to the response to PQ 276284.
