Corporate Governance and Insolvency (20 Mar 2018)

Jeremy Lefroy: I commend my hon. Friend for his statement, for this consultation, and for standing up for small businesses. Will he extend the consultation—or perhaps have a future consultation—to look at the forced liquidations of often small and sometimes slightly vulnerable businesses by banks and other secured creditors, which are totally unnecessary, and could be resolved by other means,...

Leaving the Eu: Fisheries Management (20 Mar 2018)

Jeremy Lefroy: Will my right hon. Friend confirm that under yesterday’s transition agreement we can continue to market fish and fish products seamlessly and frictionlessly into the EU, and that that is his aim for the time after the transition period has ended?

Friend knows that Newcastle-under-Lyme, Stafford, Shrewsbury and several other very good colleges that provide excellent apprenticeships have not been awarded funding under the non-levy apprenticeships scheme. She has worked hard to find a way through this, but can I ask her for an update to ensure that those colleges can continue to provide apprenticeships in vital areas such...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (19 Mar 2018)

Jeremy Lefroy: Last week I had the honour of chairing in Westminster the second annual Stafford schools debating competition. The standard was excellent, and I pay tribute to Councillor Carolyn Trowbridge and Sam Phillips for their work in organising the competition. What is the Department doing to encourage public speaking and debate in schools across the country?

Business of the House (15 Mar 2018)

Jeremy Lefroy: Two weeks ago, I raised with my right hon. Friend the non-levy apprenticeship funding for Newcastle-under-Lyme, Stafford, Shrewsbury and other colleges. The situation is becoming serious, and I believe that our young people will be let down if we do not resolve it. May I urge the Leader of the House to ensure that we have a statement or a debate as soon as possible?

Exiting the European Union: Support for Farmers (15 Mar 2018)

Jeremy Lefroy: Stafford constituency has one of the largest areas for growing soft fruit, and indeed lettuces, in the country, meaning that we have less reliance on imports. However, those involved are very concerned about the great workers who come to harvest those crops. What assurances will the Minister give me that he is working together his counterparts in the Department for Environment, Food and Rural...

European Union Citizenship (7 Mar 2018)

Jeremy Lefroy: These rights are held dear not just in Scotland, but throughout the UK. Clause 41 of Magna Carta states: “All merchants may enter or leave England unharmed and without fear, and may stay or travel within it, by land or water, for purposes of trade, free from all illegal exactions, in accordance with ancient and lawful customs.” For trade, this goes back not just to the Bill of...

European Union Citizenship (7 Mar 2018)

Jeremy Lefroy: The hon. Gentleman is making a strong case. Currently, young people—indeed, everybody—in the UK can go without a permit to work in 30 other countries: the 27 other EU countries and three of the European economic area countries. After we come out the EU, the number will be zero. A French person of the same age will still be able to go to 29 different countries. What a difference in...

What additional resources have been made available to his Department and to the legal and courts system more generally to ensure that they are fully prepared?

Uk/EU Future Economic Partnership (5 Mar 2018)

Jeremy Lefroy: Thank you very much, Mr Speaker. I am not sure that my family would say that. May I thank my right hon. Friend for two things in particular? The first is her absolute upholding of the United Kingdom—our United Kingdom—and our internal trade within our United Kingdom. The second is her point about the frictionless border. In my area of the west midlands, that is incredibly...

International Trade: Trade Envoy Programme (22 Feb 2018)

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (20 Feb 2018)

Jeremy Lefroy: The people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo have suffered for far too long. At least 6 million people have died in the past 20 years—it is probably more—and 4 million were internally displaced last year, which is more than the figure for any other country in the world. Will the Minister say what the British Government are doing to ensure that we do all we can to see the...
