Transport Secretary: East Coast Franchise (23 May 2018)

Stephen Hammond: Yes, steam was still around. For most of the first part of my professional life, I used British Rail to commute. The idea that it was a paragon of virtue and good service is just nonsense. My memory, which I do not think has deserted me, is of old and failing rolling stock, poor maintenance, timetables that were never operated, and a lack of investment. That is not the reality now. Since...

Transport Secretary: East Coast Franchise (23 May 2018)

Stephen Hammond: I am mindful of the six-minute limit. I have taken two interventions, so I will not take one from the hon. Gentleman. That private investment, which Labour so heavily opposes, is the very investment that will greatly benefit the people who travel on the trains, about whom all hon. Members should be most concerned. Under Labour proposals, that investment would disappear. I applaud my right...

Business of the House (17 May 2018)

International Trade: Leaving the EU: Third-country Trade Deals (17 May 2018)

For the continuation of those deals and opportunities, does he agree that regulatory alignment will be necessary to secure the best British deals post Brexit?

East Coast Main Line (16 May 2018)

Stephen Hammond: I welcome my right hon. Friend’s statement. As I understand it, with the formation of LNER there is no bail-out and nor is there any renationalisation, which will be widely welcomed. On the basis that taxpayer value has been protected, will he say what extra investment might be available to LNER, whether there will be opportunities for private sector investment and whether he will open...

Syria (16 Apr 2018)

Stephen Hammond: The Prime Minister was absolutely right in the actions she took and the way she took them.

Does she believe that that mechanism and that ambition will be thwarted unless Russia gives up its veto on the Security Council and the OPCW is allowed to continue its...

European Council (26 Mar 2018)

Stephen Hammond: I commend my right hon. Friend on the progress that she made last week. She will know that the financial services industry particularly welcomes the implementation period and the commitment in the guidelines for a trade in services based on market access and allowing rights of establishment. Is the British Government’s ambition to achieve that under mutual recognition or standards...

Spring Statement (13 Mar 2018)

Stephen Hammond: Investing in our economy creates jobs and growth, and successful businesses drive that. Will my right hon.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Small Business Sector (13 Mar 2018)

What are the Government doing to address that?
