Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Leaving the EU (18 Jul 2018)

Charlie Elphicke: Thank you, Mr Speaker. Does the Secretary of State agree that the most important market to the Welsh economy is the internal market of the United Kingdom? That is also true for Scotland, which is why it makes no sense that the Scottish National party wants to peel Scotland away from the United Kingdom and the success of this nation.

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

Charlie Elphicke: In the referendum campaign, the Home Office told my constituents that the jungle would move from Calais to Dover. The former Prime Minister said that there would be queues of lorries and gridlock on the way to Dover—a mantra that the Labour party took up. The Treasury told my constituents that they would lose their jobs and their homes to boot in a calamitous disaster. Despite that...

Charlie Elphicke: I have been listening with great interest to my right hon. Friend’s speech. I am a former remainer and fellow believer in free enterprise, which was why I set out a detailed plan as to how we can have frictionless trade using the World Trade Organisation trade facilitation agreement that was entered into in 2017. My constituents have some questions that I would like to pose to my right...

Leaving the EU (9 Jul 2018)

Charlie Elphicke: I welcome the Prime Minister’s statement that no deal preparations will be stepped up. What are those preparations; how will they be stepped up; will they include new money; and most importantly, will they include the delivery of the lorry park on the roads to the channel ports that was promised two years ago but that has not yet been delivered by the Department for Transport?

Fentanyl: Sentencing (26 Jun 2018)

Charlie Elphicke: I beg to move, That this House has considered sentences for supplying Fentanyl. I am delighted to have secured this debate on the evils of fentanyl. It all came about because of a tragedy that took place one morning in 2016, when every parent’s worst nightmare came true for a family in my constituency. Graeme Fraser was getting ready to walk his dog. He went to ask his son if he wanted...

Fentanyl: Sentencing (26 Jun 2018)

Charlie Elphicke: I thank my hon. Friend for making that point. He is absolutely right. He is a true champion of his constituency, and he will recall that his own constituent, Jed Spooner, who was just 27 years old, died on 2 December 2017 from fentanyl in Clacton. It is an appalling drug and a real, evil poison, 50 times stronger than heroin. It is a synthetic opioid, often produced in China, smuggled out in...

Fentanyl: Sentencing (26 Jun 2018)

Charlie Elphicke: I completely agree, which is why yesterday’s huge step forward on the road to Robert’s law is so welcome, with the Sentencing Council setting out new guidance called “Sentencing of drug offences involving newer and less common drugs”, which specifically related to synthetic opioids. I hope that the Minister will tell us more about the action being taken by the Ministry...

Leaving the Eu: Airbus Risk Assessment (25 Jun 2018)

Charlie Elphicke: Has the Secretary of State noticed that the European Union sells us £100 billion more in goods than the other way around? Does that not underline that, rather than following the defeatism of the Labour party, we should be bold and courageous in putting forward maximum facilitation and trade with the EU?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Children’s Academic and Practical Skills (25 Jun 2018)

Charlie Elphicke: In the funding of these opportunities, where an academy runs up a debt because of the Department’s failure to supervise the academy sponsor, does my right hon. Friend agree that the Department should take responsibility for that debt, rather than leave it with the school, as appears to be the case with the Goodwin Academy in my constituency?
