Leaving the Eu: Economic Analysis (30 Jan 2018)

Stephen Hammond: My hon. Friend is of course right that this analysis does not question the result of the referendum, nor does it model his desired scenario, but what it does show is that modelling a fully comprehensive free trade deal with the EU post-Brexit, combined with the benefits of new trade deals, shows a net effect on economic growth of 1.5%. Where does he hope a special and deep relationship will...

Leaving the Eu: Implementation (29 Jan 2018)

Stephen Hammond: The welcome news on Friday that the UK economy grew more strongly in the fourth quarter highlights the importance of the services and financial services sectors to this economy.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Private Sector Rail Investment (18 Jan 2018)

Stephen Hammond: I thank my right hon. Friend for that answer. The irony will not be lost on him that public sector satisfaction in the railways is declining as Government influence is at its highest since rail privatisation. What discussions has his Department had with Network Rail to change procurement and design practices so that the private sector can have more influence in funding and financing future...

Space Industry Bill [Lords] (15 Jan 2018)

Stephen Hammond: It is a great pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Morecambe and Lunesdale (David Morris), who is the chairman of the parliamentary space committee.

Friend the Member for Mole Valley (Sir Paul Beresford) had tiptoed into the debate, I realised that I was...

Policing (19 Dec 2017)

Stephen Hammond: As a London MP, may I start by paying tribute to the officers who do an extraordinary job of keeping us safe in London? The Minister will know that, since 2015, the Met has received £2.5 billion of direct funding. There is more funding for London in today’s settlement, there is the opportunity to raise £43 million and there is an extra £50 million going into...

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?

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.

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.

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...

Stephen Hammond: What recent steps she has taken to reduce the level of knife crime.

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?
