Caroline Nokes: Thank you, Mr Speaker, for giving me this opportunity to make my maiden speech today and, in so doing, to contribute to this debate on building a high-skilled economy. I congratulate the hon. Member for Liverpool, Walton (Steve Rotheram), who is fortunate to be able to boast of two premiership football clubs in his home city. Sadly, in Southampton we can no longer do the same. I should also...
Caroline Nokes: I thank the hon. Member for Coventry North West (Mr Robinson) for securing this debate and all the Members who have spoken in it thus far.

Caroline Nokes: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs if she will estimate the level of income which would accrue to companies based in the UK if US military food supplies were imported via warehouses in the UK rather than in Germany.
Caroline Nokes: After many closures, one additional problem is that people can seek planning permission for many years. In villages, in particular, that can leave a gaping hole in the heart of the community, as properties remain boarded up for years, and I can think of many examples in my constituency. If we are too restrictive about planning permission, I worry that nothing will ever happen. However, I am...
