Backbench Business: Strengthening Families — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (8 Feb 2018)

Peter Bone: I call Carol Monaghan—not to wind up for the Scottish National party, but in her own right.

Business of the House (8 Feb 2018)

Peter Bone: The Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs has said that we will not have American-style industrial factory farming in this country, yet in my constituency there is an application to have 540,000 chickens slaughtered every 42 days. That is unacceptable. May we have a debate in this House on industrial-scale factory farming? Would you allow me, Mr Speaker, to bring in a...

Local Government Finance (7 Feb 2018)

Peter Bone: My hon. Friend is making a powerful speech. He will know that we have very good district and borough councils—in fact, we share one. They have reserves and if we move to a unitary system—I think that is what will happen with two unitary authorities—what does he think should happen to those reserves?

Local Government Finance (7 Feb 2018)

Peter Bone: It is a great pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Nottingham North (Alex Norris), who made a passionate case for his area and touched on the issue of fairer funding. He is absolutely right that a fairer funding review has to be done after a period of time. I can remember making that argument to Labour Governments. The problem is that when a fairer funding review is done people then say,...

Local Government Finance (7 Feb 2018)

Peter Bone: In this particular case, the budget was passed on the assurances that were given by the cabinet, and those assurances were given to the local MPs. We said, “Are you sure you’ve got the money to do this? We’re worried,” and they said, “Oh no, everything’s rosy. The budget is fine.” They produced a budget and passed it. In year, it was clear that the...

Local Government Finance (7 Feb 2018)

Peter Bone: I could not agree more. I was a councillor for seven years, and there was a committee system. It was a Conservative-controlled council, and I have to say, I was as much of a pain then as I am now. I remember persuading the leader of the council to take back the proposed budget because it was wrong. Nothing has changed there, I suppose.

Local Government Finance (7 Feb 2018)

Peter Bone: I will not. I apologise, but other Members have to speak. The cabinet system per se is not wrong, but it can go wrong, and it has gone terribly wrong in this situation because the information just was not there. The vast majority of officers at the county council are superb, as are the vast majority of members, but the fact that the information was not there meant that the scrutiny did not...

Local Government Finance (7 Feb 2018)

Peter Bone: The hon. Gentleman is making a serious point about adult social care. Would the Labour party work with other parties to bring about a bipartisan approach? Everyone knows that there is a problem, but we should all work together to find a solution.

European Free Trade Association — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (7 Feb 2018)

Peter Bone: It is nice for a leaver to make just a brief contribution—perhaps you have heard enough from leavers, Mr Gapes. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Wimbledon (Stephen Hammond) on securing this important debate. It is a pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for South Suffolk (James Cartlidge), who made a powerful case from his point of view in relation to EFTA. My view...

European Free Trade Association — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (7 Feb 2018)

Peter Bone: I cannot, because I have very little time. It is right that the Government are saying, “Hang on. We’re the fifth biggest economy in the world. We want to make a bespoke deal.” The Brexit Secretary has described the deal as Canada plus plus plus, but he is really saying that it is a bespoke model. From that point of view, how can people object? We are in a unique situation....

Public Service Delivery: Northamptonshire (6 Feb 2018)

Peter Bone: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Kettering (Mr Hollobone) on securing this very important urgent question. As he said, all seven Northamptonshire MPs have lost confidence in the leadership of the county council. There is no question that this is about money; it is about the governance of the county council. Its cabinet has to go, and it has to go now. The vast bulk of county...

Backbench Business: Leaving the EU: Agriculture — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (1 Feb 2018)

Peter Bone: Order. I am sorry to interrupt the hon. Gentleman but I have to be fair and ensure that each party gets its allocated time, so we will have to move on.

Backbench Business: Leaving the EU: Agriculture — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (1 Feb 2018)

Peter Bone: I appreciate the courtesy of Members. To give Mr Percy a little longer, the wind-ups will start slightly after 4pm.

Backbench Business: Leaving the EU: Agriculture — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (1 Feb 2018)

Peter Bone: I advise Members in the Chamber that I would like to start the wind-up speeches at 4 o’clock. First, I will call the people who have notified me that they wish to speak. If we have time, I will call the others.

Leaving the Eu: Economic Analysis (30 Jan 2018)

Peter Bone: Does the Minister recall, prior to the referendum, what became known as “Project Fear”? Everything was going to go wrong after the referendum if we voted to come out—something short of bubonic plague—but that did not happen. With those warnings, the British people still voted to come out, so of what relevance is another forecast now that predicts exactly the same as...

Leaving the Eu: Implementation (29 Jan 2018)

Peter Bone: Will the excellent Minister confirm that in 424 days’ time, when we leave the EU and start the implementation period, we will know what our future relationship with the EU will be after the implementation period?

NHS Winter Crisis (8 Jan 2018)

Peter Bone: Does the Minister agree that the social care system is broken and that the leader of the Liberal Democrats is right that we are not going to solve the problem unless we all work together?

Leasehold and Commonhold Reform — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (21 Dec 2017)

Peter Bone: Does Mr Amesbury want to speak?

Leasehold and Commonhold Reform — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (21 Dec 2017)

Peter Bone: For the benefit of the House, I have called all the Members who have given me notification that they want to speak. I will continue to call other Members, but it would be nice if we could start the winding-up speeches at 4 o’clock or earlier.

European Council (18 Dec 2017)

Peter Bone: Will the Prime Minister give the British people a huge Christmas present by stating that, on 29 March 2019, we will leave the European Union, end the free movement of people and remove the jurisdiction of the European Court, and that the £39 billion we plan to give the European superstate to squander will be spent instead on the NHS, social care and maybe even cutting taxes?
