Medicinal Cannabis (18 Jun 2018)

Andrew Percy: There is clearly a consensus in the House for a review of policy in this area, but neither this House nor public opinion is expert, so can the Minister assure me that we will always proceed on the basis of clinical evidence? Will he look particularly closely at the good, the bad and the ugly examples from North America, where medicinal cannabis has been legalised?

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Northern Powerhouse (18 Jun 2018)

Andrew Percy: Last Friday it was announced that Siemens had won the contract for the new Piccadilly line trains and will now invest £200 million in a new train factory in Goole, creating 700 jobs—so not all investment in the south turns out to be all that terrible. However, can we make sure that the Department and the Minister in particular work with Siemens to ensure that the supply chain...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (18 Jun 2018)

Andrew Percy: We don’t want it.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

Andrew Percy: So far, I have not put in my twopenn’orth at any stage of the Bill, largely because I believed the assurances from both parties at the time of the general election that the votes of my constituents would be respected. As I said in an intervention, nearly 70% of them voted to leave the European Union, and I believed that the vote by the country to leave the EU would also be respected....

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

Andrew Percy: Representing a constituency that voted by a margin of almost seven to three to leave the EU, I am getting a little tired of hearing people who lost the referendum try to write the terms of our exit. To be totally clear on this, the Solicitor General is absolutely right that it was not just the issue of free movement that was of concern to my constituents and others in the north of England who...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Economic Growth (22 May 2018)

Andrew Percy: What steps he is taking to support economic growth.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Economic Growth (22 May 2018)

Andrew Percy: After we voted to leave the EU, a vote endorsed by huge numbers across the north of England, we were told by some that mismanagement of the economy would occur under this Government. The reality in the north, despite those who talk the economy down, is that we have record employment and some of our areas have the fastest growing economies in the country, so may I urge the Chancellor to...

Rating (Property in Common Occupation) and Council Tax (Empty Dwellings) Bill (15 May 2018)

Andrew Percy: I just want to be the second English Member to speak in this important debate. I say gently to the hon. Gentleman that maybe the English are not rising to their feet in great numbers because we are so much more united and happy with our lot in life, and we are happy with this particular piece of legislation. If he wants to visit my constituency to see how happy we are, he is welcome at any time.

Rating (Property in Common Occupation) and Council Tax (Empty Dwellings) Bill (15 May 2018)

Andrew Percy: I just want to be the third English Member to speak on this issue. The hon. Gentleman is not presenting a wholly correct picture. Those of us who actually support the principle of English laws did not want to ban anybody or see Scottish Members thrown out of here. This situation is a reaction to the fact that I, as an English Member of Parliament, have no say on the matters that only affect...

Rating (Property in Common Occupation) and Council Tax (Empty Dwellings) Bill (15 May 2018)

Andrew Percy: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Rating (Property in Common Occupation) and Council Tax (Empty Dwellings) Bill (15 May 2018)

Andrew Percy: I am sorry that I am not the real voice of England; I do not know what that makes me. The hon. Gentleman suggests two solutions to this problem: one is Scottish independence, which the people of Scotland have rejected, and the other is federalism, which the people of England clearly do not want, because all polling shows that there is not majority support for an English Parliament. So what...

Gaza Border Violence (15 May 2018)

Andrew Percy: Too many people in this place have already made up their minds about who the guilty party is in this situation, so may I praise the Minister for his balanced view from the Dispatch Box? He is absolutely right that this is not a binary issue, but I urge him to continue—as I think he has done already—to differentiate between protestors and those who have used children as shields and...

Community Transport — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (10 May 2018)

Andrew Percy: I congratulate the hon. Lady on securing the debate. Following that consultation, the portfolio holder in the East Riding of Yorkshire Council said that little had changed from the Department for Transport’s proposal, which will have devastating consequences for the sector in the East Riding of Yorkshire. Community groups such as Goole GoFar and Age UK Lindsey rely on volunteer drivers....

Iran Nuclear Deal (9 May 2018)

Andrew Percy: The truth is that there are no moderates in the Iranian regime, and the use of that word leads to conclusions that are simply not the case. It is a regime that murders its own people, including minorities, that is an exporter of terrorism, and that is destabilising the middle east. Perhaps the fact that none of that is covered under the JCPOA explains why Iran may indeed be compliant with...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Type 26 Frigates (23 Apr 2018)

Andrew Percy: If we are to have an HMS Sheffield, we must certainly have an HMS Goole, because we are, after all, a port. More importantly, with Australia and Canada both likely to make decisions on the Type 26 this year—in the coming weeks or months—does my hon. Friend agree that getting those contracts will ensure we have sea-to-sea-to-sea interoperability? Does he also agree that having four...
