European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

Mark Garnier: Will the right hon. and learned Gentleman give way?

Windrush (2 May 2018)

Mark Garnier: Will the right hon. Lady give way?

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Mark Garnier: rose—

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Mark Garnier: Just on a small technical point, my right hon. Friend is absolutely right that a trade deal takes a long time to complete and negotiate, but the plan is to transfer across the existing trade deals that we enjoy within the European Union at the early stage and then renegotiate at our leisure where we can improve them, so we will ensure continued business afterwards without deviation.

Petition - Royal Bank of Scotland Closure: Birmingham Commonwealth Games and Shooting (21 Mar 2018)

Mark Garnier: May I also say how much I enjoy the opportunity of being able to intervene back on the hon. Gentleman after all the times that he has intervened on me? He raises a really interesting point about youngsters shooting. A lot of people turn around and say, “Isn’t this abhorrent? You can’t have youngsters shooting,” but actually, I was taught how to shoot at a very early...

Petition - Royal Bank of Scotland Closure: Birmingham Commonwealth Games and Shooting (21 Mar 2018)

Mark Garnier: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for giving way again; he is being incredibly generous with his time. I must declare an interest as a member of the National Rifle Association and the Rifle Club at Bisley. It seems to me that it would be perfectly simple for the shooting sports to take place at the National Shooting Centre there, not only because it is available but because that would...

Petition - Royal Bank of Scotland Closure: Birmingham Commonwealth Games and Shooting (21 Mar 2018)

Mark Garnier: Further to the comments made by my right hon. Friend the Member for New Forest East (Dr Lewis), the hon. Gentleman is very welcome to come along to the match between the House of Commons and the House of Lords. I am the captain of our team. The hon. Gentleman has mentioned the contribution of the smaller Commonwealth countries, but he has missed an important point about shooting sports. We...

Point of Order: [Day 1] (14 Mar 2018)

Mark Garnier: My hon. Friend is right to raise the issue of non-tariff barriers. The World Trade Organisation itself identified that there were 300 non-tariff barriers in 2010, and the figure rose to 1,200 by 2015. Does she agree that Great Britain can be a strong advocate of free trade in the WTO and can try to drive a reduction in not only tariffs, but non-tariff barriers?

Point of Order: [Day 1] (14 Mar 2018)

Mark Garnier: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Point of Order: [Day 1] (14 Mar 2018)

Mark Garnier: I want to go back to the comments that the hon. Gentleman made about Sir Martin Donnelly, whom I worked with for a number of months; he is a civil servant of extreme ability and wisdom. When he made the banquet versus the packet of crisps analogy, I think he was looking to a certain extent at some of those simple gravity models used by the Treasury—the simple mathematical trade-off...

Overseas Electors Bill (23 Feb 2018)

Mark Garnier: The hon. Gentleman will be aware that if he wants to pay more tax he is perfectly entitled to. People can make arrangements with HMRC to pay more tax, and if he believes that he is not paying enough, he should by all means go ahead and pay more.

Space Industry Bill [Lords] (15 Jan 2018)

Mark Garnier: The Minister is being generous with his time. Having worked with him for the past two years on helping to develop this country’s space industry, I absolutely share his vision for how fantastic things can be for Great Britain. There are many technical details that can help us to achieve our target of 10% of the global space market, and one of those important details is the liability that...

Carillion (15 Jan 2018)

Mark Garnier: My right hon. Friend has made reference to the more recent contracts awarded to Carillion being done on the basis of a three-way partnership, and that seems a very pragmatic approach to Carillion’s recent problems, but with the collapse of Carillion, the financial burden will inevitably be passed on to the other partners. Will my right hon. Friend assure the House that when the...

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill (8 Jan 2018)

Mark Garnier: I thank hon. Members for their contributions to today’s debate. It is a great pleasure and an honour as a trade Minister to close the debate on the Taxation (Cross-border Trade) Bill, on which my colleagues in the Treasury lead. However, the fact that a trade Minister is closing the debate is not only indicative of the unity of purpose across our Government to deliver critical...

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill (8 Jan 2018)

Mark Garnier: I am happy to confirm that the Bill will have eight Committee sittings in the House of Commons.

International Trade: Ministerial Discussions (23 Nov 2017)

Mark Garnier: The Department for International Trade has overall responsibility for both inward direct investment into the UK from abroad and outward direct investment from the UK to markets overseas. Officials in my Department and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy have numerous discussions on how we can support our businesses. DIT is currently undertaking an export strategy to...

International Trade: Ministerial Discussions (23 Nov 2017)

Mark Garnier: I believe that a north Wales growth deal was announced in the Budget. It is also important to remember that the industrial strategy will be announced next week. That will talk about exactly how we can improve the infrastructure to support the great businesses in north Wales that the hon. Gentleman represents very well.

International Trade: Ministerial Discussions (23 Nov 2017)

Mark Garnier: Scottish whisky is one of our greatest export success stories, and my hon. Friend is right to say that it is worth £4 billion a year. It is this Department that leads, in every sense, on promoting exports of food and drink across the world. With the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, we look, in terms of agricultural exports, at where we have market access and at...

International Trade: UK Export Finance (23 Nov 2017)

Mark Garnier: We are putting export finance at the heart of trade promotion by enhancing the financial support available to exporters and smaller companies in their supply chains. This is a new guarantee to banks designed to increase liquidity in the supply chain, improving exporters’ access to capital and enabling their suppliers to fulfil new orders. As my right hon. Friend the Chancellor stated...

International Trade: UK Export Finance (23 Nov 2017)

Mark Garnier: In the few short months my hon. Friend has been a Member, he has proved a doughty campaigner for the whisky industry and the agricultural industry in his patch, and I would be delighted to come along and visit him. I would point out that the Board of Trade has been established across the whole country to promote the interests of regions. We have regional international trade advisers, and they...
