UK-Israel Trade — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

UK-Israel Trade — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Mark Garnier: This is just a very quick intervention. May I gently press the Minister to make a comment about the budget for the excellent—indeed fantastic—Department for International Trade staff in Tel Aviv?

UK-Israel Trade — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Mark Garnier: Like just about everyone else in the Chamber I want to draw my attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. I, too, have been to Israel on many occasions. One of the last couple of times was as an International Trade Minister—it is good to see my successor in his place—and the other was as a member of the trade delegation. We have heard a great deal...

Offensive Weapons Bill (27 Jun 2018)

Mark Garnier: His 59th—no, 69th—

Offensive Weapons Bill (27 Jun 2018)

Mark Garnier: Give him a bus pass!

Offensive Weapons Bill (27 Jun 2018)

Mark Garnier: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Offensive Weapons Bill (27 Jun 2018)

Mark Garnier: I am sure my hon. Friend needs to take the weight off his feet for a moment or two during his magnificent speech. The important point he makes about gun crime is that it is committed not with legally owned guns, but with illegally owned guns. In keeping guns away from criminals, the law is probably not working as well as it should do, and that is what should be addressed.

Offensive Weapons Bill (27 Jun 2018)

Mark Garnier: My hon. Friend makes a very good point. As for what the Government have tried to achieve, this Bill is, in every other respect, almost a perfect Bill. However, what they run the risk of doing with a ban on .50 calibre rifles is demonising people in the community who are incredibly law abiding. What we do not want to do is to fall into the trap, which we did with the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991...

Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games: Shooting (27 Jun 2018)

Mark Garnier: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for allowing me to intervene so early in his speech. The notion that Bisley is too far away is simply nonsensical. It was upgraded for the Commonwealth games a number of years ago and is a perfect, ready-made and ready-prepared venue for these events. In addition to the fact that we have lots of medal opportunities in shooting, it is a totally egalitarian...

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.
