Housing, Communities and Local Government: Private Landlords Regulator (23 Jul 2018)

Phil Wilson: Whether he plans to introduce a regulator of private landlords; and if he will make statement.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Private Landlords Regulator (23 Jul 2018)

Phil Wilson: I have an indirect interest in this question, as my wife is a private landlord. Selective licensing schemes are good as far as they go, but a side effect is that they force bad landlords elsewhere. Therefore, whether we have a regulator or not, the answer, as outlined in my private Member’s Bill, is a national register of private landlords and licensing scheme to ensure that they...

Russia and the Council of Europe — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (18 Jul 2018)

Phil Wilson: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Howarth. I thank the hon. Member for Henley (John Howell) for securing this timely debate. It is important that the subject is being discussed in the House. Our argument is not with the Russian people, but with the Russian Government and—dare I say it—the elite. It will be the Russian people who end up suffering—in fact,...

Counter-Daesh Update (3 Jul 2018)

Phil Wilson: The RAF has played a major role, and still does, in ensuring that something like 7 million civilians in Iraq and Syria are no longer under the shadow of Daesh, and we can be proud of the role it has played. We know how meticulous the RAF is in avoiding civilian casualties, and any allegation of civilian harm is, and should be, properly investigated, but how do we counter allegations by some...

UK Intergovernmental Co-operation — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (20 Jun 2018)

Phil Wilson: Let me just say that I did ask people to be back here for 4 o’clock; if there had been another vote, we could still have come back. We should have started at 4 o’clock. It is now six minutes past, and the next debate is being delayed. The only person who turned up for 4 o’clock was the Minister. Lesley Laird, would you like to continue your speech?

UK Intergovernmental Co-operation — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (20 Jun 2018)

Phil Wilson: Minister, before you start, I point out that this debate has to finish by 4.21 pm. If you could leave a couple of minutes for the mover of the motion, that would be great.

UK Intergovernmental Co-operation — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (20 Jun 2018)

Phil Wilson: Order. There is a Division in the House, so we shall suspend for 15 minutes and come back for 4 o’clock. If there is more than one Division, the sitting will remain suspended for 15 minutes for each vote. Sitting suspended for a Division in the House. On resuming—

UK Intergovernmental Co-operation — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (20 Jun 2018)

Phil Wilson: Order. The hon. Gentleman is taking us away from the subject at hand. If he could concentrate on the motion before us that would be more than welcome.

UK Intergovernmental Co-operation — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (20 Jun 2018)

Phil Wilson: Order. I hope the hon. Gentleman is bringing his remarks to a close because I want to bring in two other Front-Bench speakers and allow time for the mover of the motion to wind up the debate.

UK Intergovernmental Co-operation — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (20 Jun 2018)

UK Intergovernmental Co-operation — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (20 Jun 2018)

Phil Wilson: Order. Before the hon. Lady continues, may I say that I want to bring in the Scottish National party spokesman at 28 minutes past, so that everyone on the Front Benches gets 10 minutes each?

UK Intergovernmental Co-operation — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (20 Jun 2018)

Phil Wilson: Order. Before the hon. Lady continues, perhaps I can say that she is eating into the time of her party spokesman.

UK Intergovernmental Co-operation — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (20 Jun 2018)

Phil Wilson: Order. Six Members are standing. If hon. Members stick to five minutes for their speeches to allow everybody in, I will not have to impose an official time limit.

Exiting the European Union: Free Trade Agreements (14 Jun 2018)

Phil Wilson: Car manufacturing in this country is world leading, but the president of the CBI has said that if we leave the customs union it would become extinct. What contingencies do the Government have to replace the 800,000 jobs affected, including the 30,000 jobs in the north-east of England?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

Phil Wilson: I want to say a few words in favour of Lords amendment 51 on the European economic area. Staying in the single market and the customs union is critical to jobs and prosperity. Trade figures published only last week show that 62.3% of the north-east’s exports go to the EU. The president of the CBI has said today that the UK car industry is facing extinction. Such comments should worry us...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

Phil Wilson: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. She knows from her experience as a north-east Member of Parliament that Europe has been very good to the north-east of England as far as trade is concerned and in the investment we have had into the region from the EU. The coal industry once dominated the north-east of England. Today, all the pits have closed, but they did not close overnight. The dozens of...

Airports National Policy Statement (5 Jun 2018)

Phil Wilson: The north-east is a global-facing region, and links to an international hub are critical for its economy. A third runway at Heathrow is a strategic necessity and essential to Durham Tees Valley airport, which is in my constituency, and Newcastle airport. The Secretary of State says that 15% of slots will be for domestic connections, but how can he guarantee that? Will domestic slots be...

Petition - Natwest Ferryhill (15 May 2018)

Phil Wilson: I rise to present a petition against the closure of the NatWest branch in Ferryhill, which will leave it without any bank branches whatsoever. I would like to put on the record my thanks to Hannah Smalley of Ferryhill, who helped to compile over 1,000 signatures in opposition to the closure. The petition states: The petition of residents of the United Kingdom, Declares that NatWest Ferryhill...
