Black History Month (20 Oct 2020)

Adam Afriyie: I am delighted to be speaking in this debate during Black History Month, as the first black Conservative MP on these Benches in 2005. It is great to look around the Chamber today, on both sides, because the complexion is new. Certainly on the Government Benches, every one of us is here based on hard work, merit and, yes, of course, a little bit of luck from time to time. When I was growing up...

Prime Minister: Engagements (25 Mar 2020)

Adam Afriyie: There is no doubt that our nation and our world are under attack from an aggressive virus that intends to infect every one of us—sometimes with deadly consequences. It seems to me that in uncertain times we need clarity and leadership, and I want to commend the Prime Minister for the leadership and clarity that he has given in the messages coming from Government. We know them all very...

Coronavirus Bill: extension of leave to remain (23 Mar 2020)

Adam Afriyie: It seems to me that the whole purpose of the 30-day provision in the Civil Contingencies Act was for the Executive to be accountable to Parliament. For example, those checks and balances would be needed in a scenario where—I am not suggesting this in any way, shape or form—the Government say that nobody can travel, and Parliament is therefore unable to reconvene. I simply point that out,...

Coronavirus Bill (23 Mar 2020)

Adam Afriyie: I would like to put one or two points on the record before the Bill goes through. The first thing that strikes me is that this is an ambitious and aggressive virus, which intends to infect every single one of us, both here in the UK and across the entire globe, unless we do something quite dramatic to stop it. It does not discriminate between rich and poor, old and young, black and white, gay...

Coronavirus Bill (23 Mar 2020)

Adam Afriyie: I certainly do, and my hon. Friend has made the point very well. That is the central thrust of what I am saying. One of the key aspects of the virus, and a key reason why it is so aggressive, intrusive, ambitious and quick to move around is that it may well have the ability to mutate. If that were to happen, I should like confirmation from the Government that they have in the Bill the powers...

Business of the House (19 Mar 2020)

Adam Afriyie: Through you, Mr Deputy Speaker, may I thank Mr Speaker for the pace at which he brought through the changes to the way we operate here in respect of social distancing and our practices? That was the right thing to do. It seems to me that, given the scale and pace of the coronavirus spread and the threat to life, health, incomes and jobs throughout the country, it is quite right that the...

Defence: Young Offenders and Vulnerable People: Rehabilitation (16 Mar 2020)

Adam Afriyie: What recent assessment he has made of the role of the armed forces in helping to rehabilitate (a) young offenders and (b) other vulnerable young people.

Defence: Young Offenders and Vulnerable People: Rehabilitation (16 Mar 2020)

Adam Afriyie: The Army’s youth rehabilitation programme does good work in the Windsor constituency and across the country. Sadly, however, it is sometimes unable to help recently released offenders due to the lengthy rehabilitation periods imposed. It would be great to see many more young people who would benefit the most from military youth engagement take part, so may I ask the Minister gently whether...

Transport: Electric Vehicles: Charging Infrastructure (12 Mar 2020)

Adam Afriyie: What steps his Department is taking to support the roll-out of charging infrastructure for electric vehicles.

Transport: Electric Vehicles: Charging Infrastructure (12 Mar 2020)

Adam Afriyie: I thank the Minister for that answer. I commend the Government on the progress that has been made on charging infrastructure over the last decade, from dozens to hundreds and now thousands of charging points; that challenge is being well met. My concern is that, even with the current grants, the purchase price of electric vehicles is still out of reach for most people on lower incomes. Does...
