Uk Plans for Leaving the EU (9 Oct 2017)

Daniel Kawczynski: There are five key NATO countries that are committed to the defence of our continent that are not members of the EU, and we will soon join that group. Will the Prime Minister give me an assurance that she will work closely with those countries, and with countries such as Poland that are on the frontline with Russia, to ensure that NATO continues to be the supreme defence posture for our...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Comparative Unemployment Rates (9 Oct 2017)

Daniel Kawczynski: What recent comparative assessment he has made of rates of unemployment in the UK and in other European countries.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Comparative Unemployment Rates (9 Oct 2017)

Daniel Kawczynski: Our unemployment rates continue to fall faster than the EU mean. How is universal credit helping that?

Princess Royal Hospital Telford (12 Sep 2017)

Daniel Kawczynski: I would like to reiterate the point that my hon. Friend the Member for The Wrekin (Mark Pritchard) made. We all voted for the Bill to ensure that local communities were empowered to make these decisions. It is right and proper that local people at the coalface of providing these services are empowered to make the decisions to improve them and make them future-proof. However, in our case, it...

Princess Royal Hospital Telford (12 Sep 2017)

Daniel Kawczynski: The point I wanted to make was that certain communities in the United Kingdom have come together, across parties and across the whole of the county. Northumberland, where this process has worked very well, is a case in point. Unfortunately, in areas such as ours, where a council is acting deliberately provocatively and from a political perspective, that has not come to fruition. I want the...

Princess Royal Hospital Telford (12 Sep 2017)

Daniel Kawczynski: This is a very important point for the Minister to perhaps share with the Department for Communities and Local Government and other Ministers. Of course councils have the right to challenge processes. Even though Telford Council’s leader and all his team are completely bereft of any medical credentials, they have the right to challenge, but we need to consider whether they have the...

Princess Royal Hospital Telford (12 Sep 2017)

Daniel Kawczynski: “Shrowsbury”.

Princess Royal Hospital Telford (12 Sep 2017)

Daniel Kawczynski: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this important debate. She will know that both our hospitals—Shrewsbury and Telford—are in the same hospital trust. I pay tribute to the way that she has campaigned on this issue. Does she agree that the Labour-controlled Telford and Wrekin Council is behaving highly irresponsibly in whipping up these fearful campaigns and trying to...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Daniel Kawczynski: Clearly we want to ensure a reasonable win-win trade deal with the European Union, but is my hon. Friend aware of reports that, if we fail to get that deal and we go to WTO terms, our Exchequer will benefit by £13 billion a year from the taxes charged on imports from the European Union?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Daniel Kawczynski: rose—

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: School Funding (11 Sep 2017)

Daniel Kawczynski: What steps the Government are taking to increase core schools funding and introduce a fairer funding formula.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: School Funding (11 Sep 2017)

Daniel Kawczynski: My right hon. Friend recently met Shropshire teachers to learn of some of the financial constraints they are under. The new funding formula will go some way to addressing the huge disparity in funding that Shropshire schools get in comparison with inner-city areas, but can she give me an assurance that no school in Shropshire will see its budget cut as a result of this new funding formula?

Anglo-Polish Relations — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Daniel Kawczynski: I am grateful to all hon. Members who have contributed to this debate, and I am extremely grateful to my right hon. Friend the Minister for his comprehensive response to the points raised. I am pleased that we now have an annual Anglo-Polish—sorry, British-Polish—summit. I look forward to working with the Minister in future on British-Polish relations. Motion lapsed ( Standing...

Anglo-Polish Relations — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Daniel Kawczynski: I pay tribute to the hon. Gentleman for his role in the all-party group on Poland; he is a very active member of the group who has many Polish citizens living in his constituency. I thank him for his support and encourage him to come to the Belvedere Forum, which is hosted in Poland and brings together people from different walks of life to promote bilateral relations. I will talk to him...

Anglo-Polish Relations — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Daniel Kawczynski: Of course I recognise the role that my hon. Friend undertakes as the excellent trade envoy for Nigeria. I agree wholeheartedly about the initial support that Britain gave to Poland after the communist era in the form of technology transfer and support in setting up institutions. He will, of course, agree that Britain was at the forefront of ensuring that the Paris Club nations rescinded many...

Anglo-Polish Relations — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Daniel Kawczynski: I beg to move, That this House has considered Anglo-Polish relations. I am grateful to be speaking in this important debate. My family and I left Poland and came to the United Kingdom in 1978, because of communism. My parents were staunchly anti-communist and refused to live under the tyranny of communism, but after martial law it was impossible to return, and we had to see our family,...

Anglo-Polish Relations — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Daniel Kawczynski: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for raising that point. My right hon. Friend the Minister drew to my attention a newspaper article about that beautiful young Polish girl, who was found hanged in school as a result of being bullied by a racist gang.

Anglo-Polish Relations — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Daniel Kawczynski: I am going to make some progress, but then I will give way. The hon. Member for Ealing North (Stephen Pound) is of course correct, and that is why the Polish war memorial is important. Such visible signs of the contribution of Poles to the United Kingdom are important, because we must explain to younger generations why so many Poles are here. Many are here because they came to continue the...

Anglo-Polish Relations — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Daniel Kawczynski: I do not really want to get into a debate about our domestic immigration policies. I am proud that the United Kingdom has provided more money than any country apart from America for refugee camps in Jordan and Lebanon, but of course we can do more. A key point that I want to raise with the Minister is that because we are leaving the European Union, people say to me, “What’s it got...

Anglo-Polish Relations — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Daniel Kawczynski: I am grateful to my constituency neighbour and hon. Friend for those kind remarks. Another key issue for our Polish friends is the need for a permanent NATO base in eastern Poland. I will be the first in the debate to recognise the contribution that the United Kingdom has already made in sending rotational troops to the Suwalki gap. We are all proud that more than 150 British soldiers from...
