Written Answers — Home Office: Refugees: Families (14 Sep 2018)

Nicky Morgan: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many visas for refugee family reunion were granted outside the rules in 2017.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Wage Levels (11 Sep 2018)

Nicky Morgan: One of the people most interested in the trends in wage growth and inflation—and who gives the Treasury Committee evidence about that—is the Governor of the Bank of England. Will my right hon. Friend indicate to the House when he expects to be able to let us know about the discussions that he has been having with the current holder of that post about extending his position?

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (24 Jul 2018)

Nicky Morgan: I welcome my right hon. Friend to his new position. On Friday, a retired NHS consultant visited my surgery to talk about carpal tunnel syndrome. It appears that some of the operations are not going to happen now, and he said that they can happen at general practice level for about a third of the cost that they happen at hospital level. Is there an opportunity, yes, to save money but also to...

Trade Bill: Transfer Schemes (17 Jul 2018)

Nicky Morgan: I will necessarily keep my remarks extremely brief. I cannot match the magnificence of my right hon. Friend the Member for Broxtowe (Anna Soubry) when she spoke yesterday, but let me say the following to the Chamber. Brexit is a matter of national interest. It is time to put party politics aside, which is why I welcome the fact that Labour Members are open to supporting the Chequers...

Trade Bill: Transfer Schemes (17 Jul 2018)

Nicky Morgan: No. Some Government Members chose to try to scupper that agreement and those proposals yesterday. Some of us tried to stop that; but sadly, we failed. What is proposed in new clause 18—I am delighted to join my hon. Friend the Member for Wimbledon (Stephen Hammond) in proposing it—is eminently sensible. We want to give the Prime Minister space for the negotiations, and it is...

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

Nicky Morgan: Will my right hon. Friend give way?

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

Nicky Morgan: Does not the intervention on my right hon. Friend made by our hon. Friend the Member for Gainsborough (Sir Edward Leigh) show what is the matter with this Brexit debate? Rather than talking about the detail and the risk to thousands of jobs across the country in our manufacturing sector—the Conservative party has championed that sector since 2010—he prefers to trade insults and...

Leaving the EU (9 Jul 2018)

Nicky Morgan: Delivering the referendum result was always going to involve a series of compromises and trade-offs, and I want to support the position that the Prime Minister achieved with the Cabinet on Friday at Chequers, which absolutely puts business and jobs at the heart of any Brexit deal. That is in the national interest, and I think the Prime Minister has the vast majority of the country behind her...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Incinerators (3 Jul 2018)

Nicky Morgan: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what the Government’s policy is on the incineration of waste.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (3 Jul 2018)

Nicky Morgan: I warmly welcome what the Chancellor says about putting all information before Parliament before we vote on the final withdrawal agreement later this year, but of course that will not be the end of parliamentary involvement, because we will have to onshore all the current EU financial services legislation, including the binding technical standards. Will the Chancellor set out the...

June European Council (2 Jul 2018)

Nicky Morgan: Rather than listening to arbitrary red lines, set down, as we have just heard, by Members such as those for North East Somerset (Mr Rees-Mogg) and for Wokingham (John Redwood), will the Prime Minister do what Conservative Prime Ministers over the ages have done and find a pragmatic, sensible and flexible Brexit that delivers on the referendum result of two years ago, which we have done...

Previous Business – Commons: Select Committee (28 Jun 2018)

Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs: Pre-Appointment Hearings. 9:45 am; The Grimond Room, Portcullis House
Witnesses: Rt Hon Nicky Morgan MP, Chair, Treasury Committee Damian Collins MP, Chair, Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee

Planning: Local Communities (23 May 2018)

Nicky Morgan: The Minister is making a very helpful speech, which I shall study with great care. Our right hon. Friend the Member for West Dorset states in his interim report that, once detailed planning permission is granted for large sites, the fundamental driver of build-out rates appears to be the absorption rate. That is the rate at which newly constructed homes can be sold—or, importantly, at...

Planning: Local Communities (23 May 2018)

Nicky Morgan: I thank the Minister for that response. Of course there is a trade-off, but modern technology—in spite of the general data protection regulation, which we are all struggling with at the moment—means that notification of large numbers of parties is possible. I encourage him to look at that in the spirit of doing things with local communities, rather than doing things to them.

Planning: Local Communities (23 May 2018)

Nicky Morgan: I beg to move, That this House has considered the role of local communities in the planning system. It is a pleasure to speak under your chairmanship, Mr Owen, on a very different topic from the serious one that has just been discussed, but one that is no less serious for the local communities involved. This issue generates almost more correspondence than Brexit, but the Minister will be...

Planning: Local Communities (23 May 2018)

Nicky Morgan: I thank my hon. Friend very much for that intervention; that sounds like an eminently sensible solution. Part of the reason for the tone of this debate is that it should be down to local communities—such as Cornwall Council, no doubt at the instigation and with the support of local Members of Parliament—to do the right thing for their area. My hon. Friend makes a good point: it...

Planning: Local Communities (23 May 2018)

Nicky Morgan: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention. He raises two interesting points. I did not know about the three-year land supply, and I am not entirely sure how many others do. A number of villages, including Burton on the Wolds, are in the process of preparing neighbourhood plans, and others have done so.

Planning: Local Communities (23 May 2018)

Nicky Morgan: I want to respond to my hon. Friend’s other point first. He made a point about an annual event for measuring the five-year land supply. I am not sure I agree with him, because I know of examples where, for reasons of scheduling, the plans committee has missed the deadline. We have one example in Charnwood, where several hundred housing units have just been approved—very sensibly...

Planning: Local Communities (23 May 2018)

Nicky Morgan: I certainly agree, even as a former solicitor, that lawyers can be extremely expensive—we all know that—particularly when it comes to involving barristers and others. I am sure that my parish councils would be interested in speaking to my hon. Friend further. It would be helpful if something could be done to take into account the fact that sometimes planning committees are...
