Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Gareth Johnson: It is a pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Cheltenham (Alex Chalk), and before him my hon. Friend the Member for North Dorset (Simon Hoare), who looks like he is about to leave the Chamber. It is always a pleasure to follow the latter, but although he has many qualities, brevity is perhaps not one of them. The Bill is important, and I very much hope that its Second Reading...

Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Gareth Johnson: The Government have been absolutely clear that they must prepare for all eventualities, and that is precisely what is currently happening. I congratulate the Minister on putting resources into the country’s nuclear industry. It is essential to ensure that British nuclear fusion research continues when we leave Euratom. We have invested a huge amount of time, resources and effort in...

Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Gareth Johnson: Is the hon. Lady aware that the European Commission itself has said that no country that leaves the EU can continue being a member of Euratom? Is the Commission wrong?

Autism Diagnosis — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (13 Sep 2017)

Gareth Johnson: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on securing the debate. Does he agree that the NICE guidelines he alluded to are not figures simply plucked out of the air, but are carefully considered? What is vital is that if they are implemented people can get the support and assistance that they often need for this condition.

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Leaving the EU: Border (28 Jun 2017)

Gareth Johnson: What steps he is taking to ensure that there is no hard border with the Republic of Ireland after the UK leaves the EU.

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Leaving the EU: Border (28 Jun 2017)

Gareth Johnson: Northern Ireland is as much part of the United Kingdom as Dartford, but does the Minister agree that, given Northern Ireland’s unique situation, it is essential that there is a frictionless border between it and the Republic, without ever compromising the security of the whole of the United Kingdom?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Thames Gateway: SMEs (27 Jun 2017)

Gareth Johnson: What steps he is taking to support the growth of small and medium-sized businesses in the Thames Gateway.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Thames Gateway: SMEs (27 Jun 2017)

Gareth Johnson: The lack of connectivity between Kent and Essex frustrates commerce between those two counties. The lower Thames crossing will help with that, but it will take some years for it to be built. Will the Minister use that time to work with local businesses in the area to unlock its huge potential, which has yet to be fully realised?

Child Abuse Offences (Sentencing) — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (13 Mar 2017)

Gareth Johnson: The Minister will recall that the manifesto that she and I stood on at the last general election included a commitment to extend the scope of the unduly lenient sentence scheme. Even after the Budget, our manifesto must mean something. Does she therefore agree that it is time to extend the scope of the unduly lenient sentence scheme to include the distribution and creation of indecent...

Child Abuse Offences (Sentencing) — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (13 Mar 2017)

Gareth Johnson: The hon. Lady is making an excellent speech. Does she agree that it is wrong that the prosecution cannot appeal sentences imposed by the courts for creating or distributing images of child sexual abuse, no matter how lenient they are, because those offences do not fall under the unduly lenient sentencing scheme?

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Business: Females (9 Mar 2017)

Gareth Johnson: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, pursuant to the Answer of 1 March 2017 to Question 65481, how many and what proportion of the 2016 Queen's Award for Enterprise awards were presented to women in the (a) International Trade, (b) Innovation and (c) Sustainable Development category.

Written Answers — Home Office: Health Services: Foreign Nationals (6 Mar 2017)

Gareth Johnson: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many non-EU nationals who have left the UK with NHS debts of more than £500 outstanding for two months have been refused permission to re-enter the UK.

Awards for Valour (Protection) Bill: Offence of wearing awards with intent to deceive triable summarily (24 Feb 2017)

Gareth Johnson: I have deliberately not intervened on my hon. Friend until now because it is quite clear that he is trying to talk the Bill out, and it is absolutely clear that his amendments are wrecking amendments that are not based on logic. Does he accept that it is a great shame that there is support on both sides of the House—from Her Majesty’s Opposition, the Government, the Scottish...

Awards for Valour (Protection) Bill: Offence of wearing awards with intent to deceive triable summarily (24 Feb 2017)

Gareth Johnson: Does my hon. Friend agree that it is very sad that, come this Remembrance Sunday, any individual can parade in front of widows, veterans, families and loved ones wearing medals that they have not won themselves—they may not have even served—with the intent to deceive and to curry favour? The reason why they will be able to do so is that he has filibustered this Bill.

Awards for Valour (Protection) Bill: Offence of wearing awards with intent to deceive triable summarily (24 Feb 2017)

Gareth Johnson: The main purpose behind the Bill is to protect veterans. It is intended to ensure that when anybody sees someone wearing medals proudly at a remembrance service or in any other sphere, they can have confidence that that individual is the legitimate article. That has always been my intention. I find it grotesque in the extreme that certain individuals—we have had numerous examples of...

Written Answers — Department of Health: Health Insurance: Foreign Nationals (24 Feb 2017)

Gareth Johnson: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, if he will estimate the number and proportion of visitors to the UK in possession of valid travel medical insurance in the last 12 months.
