Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Neighbourhood Policing (16 Oct 2017)

Philip Davies: There is a worrying increase in crime in West Yorkshire, including in my constituency, and it is a fact that the police officers, who are doing a fantastic job, are overstretched. The Government’s first duty should be to protect the public and keep them safe. May I urge the Home Secretary to ensure that more resources go into West Yorkshire to support the police who are tackling that...

Unauthorised Encampments — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (12 Oct 2017)

Philip Davies: I hope that it is a point of order.

Unauthorised Encampments — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (12 Oct 2017)

Philip Davies: Order. As the hon. Lady knows, that is not a point of order, but what she has said is on the record, and what the hon. Member for Edinburgh North and Leith says must be heard.

Unauthorised Encampments — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (12 Oct 2017)

Philip Davies: Order. The hon. Lady must be heard.

Unauthorised Encampments — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (12 Oct 2017)

Philip Davies: There are still six Members seeking to catch my eye, which will take us over the time allocated for Back Benchers. If everyone wants three minutes, I am happy to accommodate that, but I ask everyone not to take further interventions, to protect the time. At the same time, I ask the Front-Bench speakers to prepare to have just eight minutes instead of 10, so all the Back Benchers can speak as well.

Unauthorised Encampments — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (12 Oct 2017)

Philip Davies: Order. I call Douglas Ross.

Unauthorised Encampments — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (12 Oct 2017)

Philip Davies: Order. The timer is now working so the leeway has gone, I am afraid. I call Richard Burden.

Unauthorised Encampments — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (12 Oct 2017)

Philip Davies: You haven’t any time left!

Unauthorised Encampments — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (12 Oct 2017)

Philip Davies: Order. I gave the hon. Gentleman a bit of latitude, because the clock is not working properly. People should look at their start time, because it does say when they started speaking; people should keep an eye on the clock. I will be a bit harsher in future, but I had to give some latitude.

Unauthorised Encampments — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (12 Oct 2017)

Philip Davies: Order. May I take it that everybody who wants to speak is standing? Everybody who wants to speak should stand. Just to let you know, 10 minutes each for the Front Benchers is the rule in 90-minute debates. There look to be about 11 people seeking to catch my eye, so I shall have to impose a time limit of three minutes on speeches. Keeping to that will depend on very few or no interventions,...

Prisons Policy/HMP Long Lartin (12 Oct 2017)

Philip Davies: If the Minister wants a zero-tolerance approach, may I suggest he change the law so that anybody involved in riots in prisons or assaults or attacks on prison officers is no longer eligible for early release but has to serve the full sentence handed down by the courts? That would give prison officers some of the support they deserve and would perhaps act as a deterrent to these appalling...

Women and Equalities: Gender Pay Gap (12 Oct 2017)

Philip Davies: Are the Government as committed to eliminating the part-time gender pay gap as they claim to be about eliminating the full-time gender pay gap? Will the Minister set out exactly what they are doing to eliminate the part-time gender pay gap?

Race Disparity Audit (10 Oct 2017)

Philip Davies: The review by the right hon. Member for Tottenham (Mr Lammy) did not actually include much hard evidence of discrimination. For example, despite setting out with the assumption that black people are more likely to be found guilty by juries, it concluded: “Juries are a success story of our justice system. Rigorous analysis shows that, on average, juries—including all-white...

Bae Systems Military Air & Information Sites: Job Losses: Point of Order (10 Oct 2017)

Philip Davies: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Yesterday, following the Prime Minister’s statement, the Leader of the Opposition, quite properly and rightly, sat through the entirety of the exchanges, as is the custom of the House. It did not go unnoticed, however, that the official spokesperson for the SNP, the hon. Member for Ross, Skye and Lochaber (Ian Blackford), left early. Given that we are...

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

Philip Davies: On the question of paying taxes, I refer the hon. Lady to what John Grant, the chief inspector at the RSPCA and a Gypsy himself, said about Gypsies and Travellers in a speech—she can watch the video of it on the RSPCA blog—to the world horse welfare conference in 2012: “I would say 95% don’t pay any taxes. A lot of their money is held in new motors, new caravans and...
