Palestinian Children and Israeli Military Detention (7 Feb 2018)

Andrew Percy: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Stringer. I congratulate the hon. Member for Rotherham (Sarah Champion), whom I know well and like a lot. The way in which she presented the debate this afternoon was in many ways consensual. She acknowledged there had been changes in Israel. However, I would take her to task on some of the things she did not say. The frustrating thing...

Palestinian Children and Israeli Military Detention (7 Feb 2018)

Andrew Percy: No. I do not have time. We must tackle the issue of Palestinian incitement as part of the debate, and the same goes for the lack of engagement from the west bank authorities for non-custodial sentences. We should also talk in these debates about what we can do as parliamentarians. I am proud to take a pro-Israel position. I am not anti-Palestinian—I consider myself to be pro-both—but...

Backbench Business: Leaving the EU: Agriculture — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (1 Feb 2018)

Andrew Percy: My point was that people should proceed on the basis of evidence. I am not an expert, but my simple point was that we should listen to what bodies such as the European Food Safety Authority say about such things, rather than rely on bigotry. I trust the experts, not those who buy into anti-capitalist, anti-American bigotry.

Backbench Business: Leaving the EU: Agriculture — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (1 Feb 2018)

Andrew Percy: Thank you, Mr Bone. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship today. I am not a farmer—I am perhaps unique in that. I do farm votes, however, and I am pleased to say that my productivity rates in every election have improved, so that means I am doing a good job for the farmers I represent. Indisputably, I represent the finest farmland in the United Kingdom, in east Yorkshire and...

Backbench Business: Leaving the EU: Agriculture — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (1 Feb 2018)

Andrew Percy: The hon. Lady is making an interesting speech. It is important that our policy on food standards is evidence-based. Salmonella rates are 1.5 times higher in Europe than they are in the US. We must not proceed in any trade deals on the basis of any anti-American bigotry. I am not suggesting that the hon. Lady is guilty of that, but some who contribute to these debates are. We must proceed only...

Andrew Percy: I thank the three Front-Bench spokespersons, whose speeches were all excellent in their content, and pay particular tribute to my hon. Friend the new Minister on his first outing at the Dispatch Box. He made a much better fist of it than I did last year, and will clearly last longer than I did in the job. I also thank other colleagues who have taken part in this debate. This has been an...

RBS Global Restructuring Group and Smes: Holocaust Memorial Day (18 Jan 2018)

Andrew Percy: The hon. Lady knows an awful lot about anti-Semitism, and I could not agree more with what she said about the role of the CST. I will end there on that example. We have heard Miriam’s story and the story of a 15-year-old girl, living now, here in modern Europe, who was slashed across the face for no other reason than that she was Jewish. That surely, surely proves to everybody why the...
