Community Bank Closures (8 Feb 2018)

Phil Wilson: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. On 17 January, in moving my ten-minute rule Bill on tightening the regulations on private landlords, I should have declared that my wife owns two houses that she lets out. I regret that oversight, and I take this opportunity to correct the record.

Community Bank Closures (8 Feb 2018)

Phil Wilson: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Stoke-on-Trent North (Ruth Smeeth) and the hon. Member for Hazel Grove (Mr Wragg) on securing the debate. At the end of June, four bank branches will close in my constituency of Sedgefield. NatWest is closing two branches, one in Ferryhill and one in Newton Aycliffe, Santander is to close its branch in Newton Aycliffe, which is just across the...

Community Bank Closures (8 Feb 2018)

Phil Wilson: The hon. Lady makes a valid point. There has to be a social conscience in banking, and it should not just be for the public sector to sort out. The private sector has to be part of it. We cannot deny the growing trend in banking being done online and by mobile phone and telephone. Barclays pointed out to me that on average its customers use mobile banking more than 28 times a month and visit...

NHS Blood Cancer Care (17 Jan 2018)

Phil Wilson: Order. Before the Minister responds, can I say that I would like to see if we can get the Member who moved the motion in at the end for a winding-up speech?

NHS Blood Cancer Care (17 Jan 2018)

Phil Wilson: Order. This is just an intervention, not a speech.

NHS Blood Cancer Care (17 Jan 2018)

Phil Wilson: Order. I want to bring in the Front-Bench spokespeople at 3.30 pm. That gives us about 30 minutes for Back-Bench speeches. I call Colleen Fletcher.

Private Landlords (Registration) (17 Jan 2018)

Phil Wilson: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to require all private landlords in England to be registered; and for connected purposes. Over the years, one of the key issues consistently raised with me by my constituents has been the role played by some private landlords and their tenants in the local community. Let me say up front that the majority of private landlords are...

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill (8 Jan 2018)

Phil Wilson: Any changes to taxation on cross-border trade between the UK and the European Union after Brexit will inevitably lead to some friction for companies exporting to or importing from the rest of the EU. Whatever scheme is negotiated—if, indeed, any is—it will inevitably lead to greater costs and more bureaucracy. As an EU member state, we are part of the customs union and the common...

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill (8 Jan 2018)

Phil Wilson: It was also made quite obvious during the referendum campaign that £350 million a week would be spent on the NHS, but I do not think that has come to fruition either.

Russian Interference in Uk Politics (21 Dec 2017)

Phil Wilson: I congratulate the right hon. Member for Carshalton and Wallington (Tom Brake) on securing this important debate. The world is interdependent in a way that it has never been before, and it is understandable that it creates insecurity and uncertainty when once intimate communities now become atomised. People are looking for solace in identity politics, and nationalism becomes the plaything of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Partner in Defence (27 Nov 2017)

Phil Wilson: Our amphibious capability is important to our defence partners, so is the future of HMS Bulwark and HMS Albion secure?

Durham Tees Valley Airport (22 Nov 2017)

Phil Wilson: The airport is known as Durham Tees Valley.

Durham Tees Valley Airport (22 Nov 2017)

Phil Wilson: I beg to move, That this House has considered the future of Durham Tees Valley airport. I applied for this debate to give support to Durham Tees Valley airport and the Peel Group, which plans to grow the airport. In the last decade or so, Durham Tees Valley has faced major difficulties, as have many other regional airports across the country. It has had to face the fact that the aviation...

Durham Tees Valley Airport (22 Nov 2017)

Phil Wilson: The Tees Valley Mayor has a few questions to answer on this issue. I will come to that matter later in my speech, but I am pleased that my hon. Friend raised it. Despite the losses and the low passenger numbers, there is still a strategic role for regional airports. There is a strong correlation between regional GDP, employment in air-intensive industries and aviation connectivity. Regional...

Durham Tees Valley Airport (22 Nov 2017)

Phil Wilson: My hon. Friend raises a significant issue. About 600 people work at the airport, and we all want to ensure that they continue to have a job.

Durham Tees Valley Airport (22 Nov 2017)

Phil Wilson: That is another valid point that I will come to later in my speech.

Durham Tees Valley Airport (22 Nov 2017)

Phil Wilson: The air ambulance service, which is based at the airport, provides a great service for the area. Where I live, I can sometimes see it flying over to get to an incident. It is a great charity, and I want to see it grow and prosper there. Regional airports support the business community, whose key needs from regional air services are an increase in destinations and the frequency of flights to...

Durham Tees Valley Airport (22 Nov 2017)

Phil Wilson: Again, my hon. Friend pre-empts something I am going to say in my speech. I will mention the rail link, because it is very important. The airport can attract investment while taking into consideration trends in the UK regional airport sector. In the eight years between 2007 and 2015, the north-east of England was badly impacted by the global financial crisis, which affected the region’s...

Durham Tees Valley Airport (22 Nov 2017)

Phil Wilson: I would love to get on, because I want to hear from the Minister. The focus is on the north side of the airport, but the south side has great potential too. Peel believes that its master-plan has the potential, over time, to generate about 6,000 jobs. I believe that Peel has a plan, and it has shown commitment to the airport, which is proved by the investment of £38 million over the past...

UK Amphibious Capability — [James Gray in the Chair] (21 Nov 2017)

Phil Wilson: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gray. I congratulate the hon. Member for Stoke-on-Trent North (Ruth Smeeth) on securing this very timely debate. I want to make a few points and quote what other people have said about this issue to get it on the record again. The point of amphibious capability is to land where the enemy is not. The idea that the Government think that we,...
