Andrew Griffiths: Will the Minister give way?

Alcohol Consumption Guidelines (28 Jun 2016)

Andrew Griffiths: I have a very simple question. Does the Minister think there is no such thing as safe drinking?

Alcohol Consumption Guidelines (28 Jun 2016)

Andrew Griffiths: Can the hon. Lady tell me of just one sentence today in which any Member has said that they are not concerned about the effects on health, or about domestic violence or alcoholism? This is a ridiculous speech—I realise that she is new in her position, but I suggest that in future she does a little more research before she comes to the Chamber.

Alcohol Consumption Guidelines (28 Jun 2016)

Andrew Griffiths: I agree with much of what the hon. Lady is saying. Does she share my concern about telling people that alcohol can cause them to misjudge risky situations, cause accidents and cause them to lose self-control, and giving them advice about drinking alcohol before going up a ladder? That is not the kind of advice about alcohol that people expect, and the risk is that the general public will have...

Alcohol Consumption Guidelines (28 Jun 2016)

Andrew Griffiths: It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Alan, and to address the issues raised by my hon. Friend the Member for Gower (Byron Davies). They are hugely important issues and he got into the detail of them. I am also pleased to take part in a debate with the Minister, because she has worked really constructively with the industry during her time in office. The work that she...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 May 2016)

Andrew Griffiths: Will the Chancellor confirm reports in the press today that former Labour Minister, Lord Sugar has joined the Government as our new enterprise tsar? Does he agree that this is a sign of people abandoning Labour for the prosperity, security and jobs offered by this Government? Will the Chancellor finally confirm that he has no new plans for a sugar tax?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Workless Households (9 May 2016)

Andrew Griffiths: Does the Secretary of State agree that too many people are suffering as a result of drug and alcohol abuse, which is preventing them from returning to work? Does he agree that helping those people to become drug and alcohol-free is essential, and will he visit the Burton Addiction Centre to see how we can transform lives, help people to become free of addiction, and get them back into work?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Apr 2016)

Andrew Griffiths: May I draw the Prime Minister’s attention to the tragic death of Ayeeshia Jane Smith in my constituency? Ayeeshia was 21 months old when she was stamped on by her mother so violently that it punctured her heart. The pathologist said her body resembled a “car crash victim”. Yet Ayeeshia had been known to social services since the day she was born. They knew about the violent...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (22 Mar 2016)

Andrew Griffiths: Will the Chancellor confirm to the House that this Government are spending £2 billion more on support for the disabled, that inequality is at its lowest rate for 25 years according to the Institute for Fiscal Studies and that there are 2 million more people in work thanks to this Government? Is that not what we are doing for the vulnerable?

Points of Order (15 Mar 2016)

Andrew Griffiths: On a point of order, Mr Speaker.

Points of Order (15 Mar 2016)

Andrew Griffiths: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. A few moments ago in Business questions, amid all the excitement of hearing what the Government are doing to support the pubs and brewing industry, I inadvertently forgot to draw the attention of the House to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. Can the Chair explain to me how I can get that on the record and rectify the mistake?

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Topical Questions (15 Mar 2016)

Andrew Griffiths: The Secretary of State will know that the beer and pub industry in the west midlands employs 86,000 people in 5,000 pubs, has 124 breweries and contributes £1.3 billion in tax. Given his support for the brewing industry when he was in the Treasury, when he led the call for the duty cut, will he outline what his Department is doing to support the beer and pub industry—and will he...

International Women’S Day 2016 (8 Mar 2016)

Andrew Griffiths: It is a delight to speak in this debate and to follow on from the words of my hon. Friend the Member for Louth and Horncastle (Victoria Atkins) about the male contribution. Anybody who reads the Hansard of last year’s debate will see that no male MPs made speeches, but some made interventions, so it is great to see so many men taking part in today’s debate, because this issue...

International Women’S Day 2016 (8 Mar 2016)

Andrew Griffiths: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. It is no surprise that when we widen the gene pool and get more women and diversity around the table, we make better decisions. In the time I have left, I want to talk about something close to my heart. Engineering has a turnover of more than £1 trillion, which is a quarter of all UK enterprises, yet 64% of employers say that there is a shortage of...

International Women’S Day 2016 (8 Mar 2016)

Andrew Griffiths: I will not, if the right hon. Lady does not mind, because I have only a few seconds left. A paper by EngineeringUK shows that UK has the lowest proportion of female engineers in the EU. The figure is 9% in the UK, but 30% in Latvia. Girls outperform boys in STEM subjects but fail to continue those studies to A-level and beyond. In the past five years, 12,000 STEM A-levels were taken by women,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Spirits Duty (1 Mar 2016)

Andrew Griffiths: Any changes or reductions in spirit duty will impact on the market for other drinks, such as beer. I draw the House’s attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests, but this Government and this Chancellor scrapped Labour’s hated beer duty escalator and cut beer duty three times, which led to more beer sales and more revenue for the Treasury, and which...
