Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Sharks: Imports (10 Jul 2019)

Andrew Percy: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what discussions he has had with his EU counterparts on an EU-wide ban on shark fin imports.

UK Steel Industry (9 Jul 2019)

Andrew Percy: It pains me to disagree slightly with the hon. Member for Rotherham (Sarah Champion)—for whom I have a high regard and whom I consider a friend—but it is simply not the case that the Government have done nothing. It is also a little rich to take lectures from Labour, under whose last tenure in government the number of people working in the steel industry halved and UK steel production...

UK Steel Industry (9 Jul 2019)

Andrew Percy: Of course I will give way to my neighbour.

UK Steel Industry (9 Jul 2019)

Andrew Percy: Absolutely. I do not need to repeat what my hon. Friend said; all that is true and demonstrates how important the industry is not just to our sub-region or region, but to the whole UK economy. Where are we now? I thank the Minister and the Secretary of State for the positive way in which they have engaged with local stakeholders, unions, the councils and local Members of Parliament. I...

UK Steel Industry (9 Jul 2019)

Andrew Percy: I thank the hon. Gentleman—my constituency neighbour—for securing this debate; he is a genuine champion of our local area and for steelworkers in particular. Would he encourage more local authorities to sign up to the steel charter? Last week, North Lincolnshire Council’s leader got the first London authority—Bexley, I believe—to sign up. It is really important that more councils...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Sharks: Imports (3 Jul 2019)

Andrew Percy: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what assessment he has made of the potential merits of banning shark fin imports.

Modern Slavery Act: Independent Review: Jewish Refugees from the Middle East and North Africa (19 Jun 2019)

Andrew Percy: Thank you, Mr Hollobone, for calling me to speak; I nearly said, “Sir Philip”, as I am sure it is just a matter of time before you are called that. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship. I of course congratulate my right hon. Friend the Member for Chipping Barnet (Theresa Villiers) on securing this debate and on everything she said. I associate myself entirely with her...

Modern Slavery Act: Independent Review: Jewish Refugees from the Middle East and North Africa (19 Jun 2019)

Andrew Percy: I congratulate my right hon. Friend on securing the debate. Somebody who asked a question in last night’s Tory leadership debate—Abdullah from Bristol—had retweeted a tweet suggesting that Israel should be relocated to the United States. This debate demonstrates why that is so offensive. It feeds into a false narrative that Israel is a creation of Europe or America, and totally...

Written Answers — Treasury: Research and Development Tax Credit (24 May 2019)

Andrew Percy: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what the value was of R&D tax credits in (a) the Humber, (b) Yorkshire and the Humber and (c) the UK in each of the last five years.

Written Answers — Treasury: Research and Development Tax Credit (24 May 2019)

Andrew Percy: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, how many businesses have taken up R&D tax credits in (a) the Humber, (b) Yorkshire and the Humber and (c) the UK in each of the last five years.

British Steel (22 May 2019)

Andrew Percy: On behalf of the thousands of my constituents whose livelihoods rely on Scunthorpe, may I thank the Secretary of State for his personal interest and dedication? He has worked incredibly hard to try to find a solution here. I echo the comments of my hon. Friend the Member for Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland (Mr Clarke) about not applying any ideology to the ownership model moving...

Secondary School Standards: East Cleveland: Intimidation in Public Life — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (21 May 2019)

Andrew Percy: Will my hon. Friend the Minister look again at this matter? It is absolutely right to remove the addresses of local government candidates, but some candidates said to me that there was a bit of a political risk in that. The ballot paper just showing the address as, in my case, in the East Riding of Yorkshire could be, given that some people have a local address on, a bit of a disadvantage.

Secondary School Standards: East Cleveland: Intimidation in Public Life — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (21 May 2019)

Andrew Percy: That is all very well and good, but there are obviously particular problems on the hon. Lady’s side at the moment, which have led to members of her party leaving. From her position, which is important to the debate, will she condemn absolutely—as we all should—people who address rallies at which people call for Members to be lynched or hold signs of a decapitated Prime Minister?

Secondary School Standards: East Cleveland: Intimidation in Public Life — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (21 May 2019)

Andrew Percy: I pay tribute to the hon. Member for East Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow (Dr Cameron). I have travelled with her on a trip about antisemitism and I know some of the things that she has gone through. It was a brave speech, and I hope she will not now be called in to explain that; such treatment is unacceptable. I also want to praise my hon. Friend the Member for Carmarthen West and...

Secondary School Standards: East Cleveland: Intimidation in Public Life — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (21 May 2019)

Andrew Percy: That is absolutely right. While I say I can laugh at it, and I do so because I will not allow those people to get to me, the fact is that that sort of highly personalised abuse would not be tolerated in any other working environment. It would not have been tolerated when I was a school teacher. I certainly would not tolerate it from the pupils, and they would not get it from me. Nor would it...

Secondary School Standards: East Cleveland: Intimidation in Public Life — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (21 May 2019)

Andrew Percy: I, too, congratulate my hon. Friend. He is right to refer to the 2017 election. I spoke in the last debate about what happened in that election; my staff were spat at, and there were threats and damage to property. Perhaps the most sinister thing was damage to the properties of my constituents who simply put up a poster in their gardens and windows in support of me as a candidate. It is their...

Secondary School Standards: East Cleveland: Intimidation in Public Life — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (21 May 2019)

Andrew Percy: The person who attacked Nigel Farage yesterday tweeted last week that the Prime Minister was a “stupid little witch”. Again, that demonstrates the abuse that women in politics in particular are subjected to.

British Steel (21 May 2019)

Andrew Percy: As the Minister knows, part of the Scunthorpe site and probably the lion’s share of workers at Scunthorpe live in my constituency. I thank him and the Secretary of State, on my behalf and that of the hon. Member for Scunthorpe (Nic Dakin), for their frequent communication with us over the past week or so. Certainty is very important to the industry. That is why, with some reservations, I...
