Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill: EU VAT area and pre-commencement requirements (16 Jul 2018)

Ian Paisley Jnr: Will the hon. Gentleman reiterate the point that new clause 37 simply underlines and reaffirms what the Prime Minister has said from the Dispatch Box on four separate occasions? The hon. Gentleman is right to seek to nail this into the Bill because we might not always have the luxury of having a Unionist Prime Minister.

Business of the House: Issue of sum out of the Consolidated Fund for the year ending 31 March 2019 and appropriation of that sum (9 Jul 2018)

Ian Paisley Jnr: At the outset of this debate, I hope the right hon. Gentleman knows that Members on the Democratic Unionist party Benches absolutely salute the courage, the dedication and the record of servicemen from across all of the United Kingdom who gave of their time, their duty and, for too many, their lives in defence of Ulster. We salute them, sir, tonight.

Business of the House: Northern Ireland Budget (No. 2) Bill (9 Jul 2018)

Ian Paisley Jnr: At the outset, I wish to take a moment to pay tribute to the life of one of my constituents, Mr William Dunlop, who sadly perished on Saturday in a motorcycle race. He was an immensely talented athlete who had won more than 108 races during his short career as a motorcycle racer. He had achieved four podium finishes at the TT course on the Isle of Man and had won several races in various of...

Business of the House: Northern Ireland Budget (No. 2) Bill (9 Jul 2018)

Ian Paisley Jnr: My right hon. Friend makes an important point. Our key industry is agri-food products. We produce the best, tastiest and most traceable food on these islands. It is a multibillion-pound industry. Because it is traceable, it offers our kingdom food security. The issue that my right hon. Friend has put his finger on is explained clearly in the budget statement that we got from the Minister. The...

Business of the House: Northern Ireland Budget (No. 2) Bill (9 Jul 2018)

Ian Paisley Jnr: I was always taught that the purpose of the study of history was to avoid repeating the mistakes of the past. One of the mistakes made in the 1950s and ’60s was that this place became disinterested in what was happening on the ground in Northern Ireland, and we know what happened then. If we do not learn from the past, we will, through the disinterest of this place, repeat what happened...

Business of the House: Northern Ireland Budget (No. 2) Bill (9 Jul 2018)

Ian Paisley Jnr: Labour Members who are so interested in whether there should be a hard or a soft border could have put on record their concern about the number of officers who have been recruited to the Northern Ireland border service and Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs to deal with these issues, and how those officers have been recruited, but hark! I hear nothing from the Labour Benches.

Business of the House: Northern Ireland Budget (No. 2) Bill (9 Jul 2018)

Ian Paisley Jnr: The point that the right hon. Gentleman is making is compounded by the fact that each month, the Police Service of Northern Ireland loses 50 officers for the very reason that he identified. For a force the size of the PSNI, that loss is hugely significant, because we are not getting in the experienced officers we need with the skills to deal with the issues. Does he agree with the point that...

Business of the House: Northern Ireland Budget (No. 2) Bill (9 Jul 2018)

Ian Paisley Jnr: I appreciate what the shadow Secretary of State has put on the record. It is important in terms of the lack of numbers. Under the Patten recommendation, police are down by 1,000, which needs to be rectified. He is right that it will take time. What worries me most—I hope that he agrees—is that, in the top team of the PSNI, six of the nine senior officers are currently on temporary...

Business of the House: Northern Ireland Budget (No. 2) Bill (9 Jul 2018)

Ian Paisley Jnr: Is the Secretary of State confirming effectively to the House that the financial shortfall identified by the Chief Constable will now be met by additional resources, as required by the Chief Constable when he met the Northern Ireland Affairs Committee?

Business of the House: Northern Ireland Budget (No. 2) Bill (9 Jul 2018)

Ian Paisley Jnr: I appreciate what the Secretary of State is saying, and yes, by and large, that is exactly what is happening, but it is not quite as benign as that. The Secretary of State has personally signed off a change in the budget by which £100 million has been taken from capital spend to revenue spend. Civil servants are of course very delighted about that, because some of it will go towards...

Commercial Sexual Exploitation — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (4 Jul 2018)

Ian Paisley Jnr: You don’t have to.

Commercial Sexual Exploitation — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (4 Jul 2018)

Ian Paisley Jnr: The Minister has two and a half minutes.

Commercial Sexual Exploitation — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (4 Jul 2018)

Ian Paisley Jnr: Before I call the next Member, who is Fiona Bruce, I will just say that I do not intend to put a formal time limit on speeches. I think everyone will have time to speak, provided that they bear in mind that I intend to call the first winding-up speech at 3.28 pm. Members therefore have about six or so minutes, without a formal time limit.

Commercial Sexual Exploitation — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (4 Jul 2018)

Ian Paisley Jnr: If hon. Members wish to remove their jackets—including the Clerk and the Hansard Reporters—they are entitled to do so, because of the rudimentary cooling system that we have today. I will, unusually, call Sarah Champion from the same side, because I know that she has been very significant in getting this motion to the House.

Sustainable Fisheries (4 Jul 2018)

Ian Paisley Jnr: I thank the Secretary of State for producing this paper and thank him especially for meeting the fishermen and the industry in Northern Ireland, ensuring that some of the points that they raised are reflected in this White Paper. That is a positive message. In his recent meeting with Minister Creed, did he discuss voisinage agreements, or good neighbour agreements, with the Republic of...

Gaza: Humanitarian Situation — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (26 Jun 2018)

Ian Paisley Jnr: Order. I call the first Front-Bench spokesperson, Joanna Cherry. I thank her for conceding some of her time to Back Benchers.

Gaza: Humanitarian Situation — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (26 Jun 2018)

Ian Paisley Jnr: Order. Before I call Dr Rosena Allin-Khan, I inform Members that her speech will be the last three-minute speech. After that, the time limit will be two minutes.

Gaza: Humanitarian Situation — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (26 Jun 2018)

Ian Paisley Jnr: It is extremely stifling in here today. If hon. Members wish to remove their jackets, I will permit that, given the heat. I know we will probably generate more heat and light during the debate. This is also a highly subscribed debate, so I ask people to bear that in mind when they make their introductory remarks. I will try to get everyone in, if possible, but quite a lot of Members wish to...

Gaza: Humanitarian Situation — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (26 Jun 2018)

Ian Paisley Jnr: Order. Before I call Sir Nicholas Soames, I ask hon. Members to restrict themselves to as few interventions as possible or no interventions—I know it is impossible to order that. It will mean that everyone gets a chance to speak, but after Sir Nicholas speaks, I will be cutting the time available to each Member to, potentially, two minutes, depending on interventions. I want to get it...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (26 Jun 2018)

Ian Paisley Jnr: In advance of the visit to the United Kingdom of the President of the United States, and in the knowledge that Northern Ireland is the recipient of the highest levels of foreign and direct investment from the United States, will the Secretary of State make it clear to the ambassador that Northern Ireland is open to the President for a visit, and that he will receive a considerable welcome there?
