King’S College Hospital Foundation Trust (12 Dec 2017)

Stephen Hammond: As a London MP, I know that other hospitals that have faced challenging situations have put in place improvement plans and met the targets set by NHSI. If the regulator had not acted yesterday, would it not have been letting down other London hospitals and my constituents?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Small Business Sector (12 Dec 2017)

Friend say what the Government could do to encourage local authorities to use those reliefs so that all small businesses benefit?

EU Exit Negotiations (5 Dec 2017)

Stephen Hammond: My right hon. Friend will of course know that the UK has a large surplus in services with the EU.

Online Hate Speech (30 Nov 2017)

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Private Sector Investment (30 Nov 2017)

Stephen Hammond: I particularly welcome the document that came out yesterday and the point it makes about regional rail partnerships, which many experts agree are the answer for driving passenger satisfaction and value for money. They should be the first stage towards vertically integrated companies. Will the Minister confirm that that might be the final destination for those partnerships?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (30 Nov 2017)

Stephen Hammond: Along with many other Londoners, my constituents are concerned about the number of promises the Mayor appears to be breaking on transport infrastructure. Will my right hon. Friend confirm exactly what the Mayor now needs to do to progress Crossrail 2 so it does not become another one of his broken promises?

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Stephen Hammond: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Harrow West (Gareth Thomas). I certainly agree with his remarks about the role of co-operatives in financial services and other parts of our economy. In fact, he and I have spoken about that previously. The Chancellor said that this was a Budget “fit for the future”. In many ways, all Budgets are fit for the future because it is the...

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Stephen Hammond: The hon. Gentleman is absolutely right. That is an infrastructure problem, however, and I hope he will have noted a number of announcements on infrastructure today, including the fact that the roll-out of broadband is being accelerated. I absolutely agree that there is a massive problem, and I am very pleased that those on the Government Front Bench are doing something about it. At...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Knife Crime (20 Nov 2017)

Stephen Hammond: On behalf of my right hon. and hon. Friends, I congratulate the Minister on her appointment. I thank her for her answer; she responded to the pressure well. Does she agree that it is a concern that, under the current Mayor, knife crime in London has risen in the past year? Does she also agree that the decision to close Wimbledon police station is clearly wrong-headed in that regard?

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Insurance: Foreign Companies (16 Nov 2017)

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Interpretation of retained EU law during transitional period (14 Nov 2017)

Stephen Hammond: Like my hon. Friend, I am keen to see that one of our major industries is preserved. Is not the overwhelming merit of his amendments 357 and 358 that they would preserve the Government’s ability to modify the regulations but give certainty on day one because they would deliver a functioning set of rules that could be on the statute book and would therefore take into account some of the...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Interpretation of retained EU law during transitional period (14 Nov 2017)

Stephen Hammond: Is not the overwhelming advantage of this rule not that it would put any legal constraints on an authority but that it would allow flexibility to co-operate, making it more likely that we would achieve an equivalent regulatory solution more quickly?

Business of the House (26 Oct 2017)

Stephen Hammond: The Government have helpfully published a number of sectoral post-Brexit plans. May I ask the Leader of the House to ask the Department for Exiting the European Union to publish a plan on financial services—our largest export sector and a big tax earner that employs many people in my constituency?
