Early Parliamentary General Election Bill: Early parliamentary general election (29 Oct 2019)

Andrew Percy: I will now give way to the hon. Gentleman.

Early Parliamentary General Election Bill: Early parliamentary general election (29 Oct 2019)

Andrew Percy: I am sorry, but the hon. Gentleman has done nothing to deliver on his 2017 election manifesto since that vote, which was to deliver Brexit. It is a prime example of why this Parliament is so broken. Never mind the £1 million that was funnelled to various remain groups towards the end of the referendum campaign; never mind the millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money used to campaign for...

Early Parliamentary General Election Bill: Early parliamentary general election (29 Oct 2019)

Andrew Percy: We have two hours for this debate, so I hope we will get to hear other Members.

Early Parliamentary General Election Bill: Early parliamentary general election (29 Oct 2019)

Andrew Percy: I am responding to points that were made in other speeches and interventions in the debate, but I will of course—[Interruption.] Opposition Front Benchers need to calm themselves. I know they are not looking forward to an election because they broke their promises from the 2017 election, but they need to calm down. I will of course follow your ruling, Sir Lindsay, because after all you did...

Early Parliamentary General Election Bill: Early parliamentary general election (29 Oct 2019)

Andrew Percy: My hon. Friend is entirely right. That is why we must bring this Parliament to a close. On the amendment, and whether the date is 9 or 12 December, I am not particularly bothered. I just want my constituents and the people in the constituencies around mine, who I am afraid have been let down by their Members of Parliament who have not kept their promises from the 2017 election—all the...

Early Parliamentary General Election Bill: Early parliamentary general election (29 Oct 2019)

Andrew Percy: No, I will not give way any more. I want to make a final point about the tone of the forthcoming general election campaign because it will be important. We have heard a lot of attacks on the Prime Minister in the last few days in the Chamber. An analysis out today said that the person who has been on the receiving end of the largest amount of bile and personal attacks is the Prime Minister....

Early Parliamentary General Election Bill: Early parliamentary general election (29 Oct 2019)

Andrew Percy: It does not matter in the Humber if it is 9 or 12 December—I can guarantee it will be a bit windy and probably a bit damp. More importantly, will the Minister dismiss the Opposition’s amendment for what it is—a shameful attempt to divide? That is what it is about. The Opposition are trying to build resentment in a group of the electorate that they think are susceptible to their...

Leaving the EU: Workers’ Rights (29 Oct 2019)

Andrew Percy: As the Secretary of State pointed out, parties on both sides have expanded workers’ rights far beyond the EU minimums, so will she go further and call out this campaign for what it is—a grubby attempt to divide employees from employers and a deliberate politically motivated campaign of misinformation? Moreover, it is deeply insulting to the British electorate to suggest that they are...

Early Parliamentary General Election (28 Oct 2019)

Andrew Percy: Every constituency in my region voted at the 2016 referendum by a huge margin to leave the European Union. At that time, lots of my constituents, in some of the most deprived communities of this country, told me that they did not trust this Parliament to deliver it. They said, “We won’t get it. They’ll never let us leave.” The five Conservatives out of the 10 MPs in my region might...

Shared Rural Network (28 Oct 2019)

Andrew Percy: I regularly survey my constituents in Brigg and Goole and the Isle of Axholme on this and produce a network by network, geographically located report. EE has been very good in responding to those surveys. A new mast in Broughton will come online on 5 November as a result of that, and changes are also being made to a mast in Reedness, so there is some good news. However, it is clear from my...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill and Extension Letter (21 Oct 2019)

Andrew Percy: Lots of my constituents in east Yorkshire and north Lincolnshire think that what happened on Saturday was a Westminster bubble smarty-pants stitch-up to stop us leaving the European Union on 31 October and—do you know what?—that is exactly what it was. The reason why 31 October is so important is because many people in this country, particularly across the north of England, have figured...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Fertility: Medical Treatments (17 Oct 2019)

Andrew Percy: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what steps he is taking to assess the implications of the judgment in R (TT) v Registrar General for England and Wales & Ors ((2019) EWHC 2384 (Fam)) on members of the trans community who wish to access fertility treatment at a licensed clinic.

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (14 Oct 2019)

Andrew Percy: When I was re-elected at the 2017 election, I and all the MPs for surrounding constituencies, including the Labour MPs, were elected on a very clear pledge to deliver Brexit. Can my right hon. Friend assure me that he will not tolerate any attempt to get a second referendum? A second referendum is about one thing: it is about giving backword on the solemn pledge we gave in the 2017 election...

Business of the House (Prorogation): Baby Loss Awareness Week (8 Oct 2019)

Andrew Percy: I obviously associate myself with many of the comments that have been made today, particularly those of my hon. Friend the Member for Eddisbury (Antoinette Sandbach) and the hon. Member for North Ayrshire and Arran (Patricia Gibson), who talked very movingly about their personal experiences. I suppose that not many of us necessarily think about this issue if we have not experienced it, or...

Business of the House (Prorogation): Baby Loss Awareness Week (8 Oct 2019)

Andrew Percy: This is such an important topic. While the Minister is on the subject of outreach clinics, may I also emphasise to her the need for maternity bereavement suites within maternity suites? I am proud to have helped secure £22,500 for the new facility at Scunthorpe hospital that opened over the summer, and I pay tribute to the Health Tree Foundation for securing that £175,000 project. It took...

Business of the House (Prorogation) (8 Oct 2019)

Andrew Percy: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. We have just agreed to a Prorogation, which will take place later this evening. I wonder whether you could give us some assurance that, this time when we prorogue, Government Members will not be subjected to the sort of abuse that we were subjected to at the last Prorogation ceremony. I sat here, but in the end walked out, so disgusted was I to see...

Exiting the European Union (Environmental Protection) (8 Oct 2019)

Andrew Percy: The Minister will be aware that my constituency will be included in the northern forest, which we are very excited about. I know he is very busy, but I invite him to come to North Lincolnshire where, in a couple of weeks’ time, North Lincolnshire Council will be launching its own new environmental strategy to ensure that the resources it has, be they grass verges or open green spaces, are...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Health Services: Reciprocal Arrangements (8 Oct 2019)
