Opposition Day — [1st allotted day]: Climate Change (10 Jun 2015)

Gavin Shuker: Climate change is development in reverse. A changing climate threatens the poorest people in the poorest parts of the world, and it is one of the gravest development challenges we face. Global warming slows growth and creates new poverty traps for families and communities already struggling to survive. Failing to tackle it will not only stifle progress on poverty alleviation, but cause...

Opposition Day — [1st allotted day]: Climate Change (10 Jun 2015)

Gavin Shuker: I congratulate the right hon. Lady on her welcome promotion. She talked about global leadership and the G7. Is she not disappointed that the targets coming out of the agreement this weekend only referred to 2100, and why did it take the German Chancellor to put this issue on the agenda? Where has Britain been on this when hosting similar events?

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Illegal Migration (3 Jun 2015)

Gavin Shuker: May I begin by welcoming the Secretary of State back to her post and welcoming the right hon. Member for Welwyn Hatfield (Grant Shapps) to his new post? We look forward to working constructively with the Secretary of State in this very important year for development. We welcome the reintroduction of search and rescue in the Mediterranean—it was a shameful decision to withdraw it, and the...

Fifa: Britain in the World (1 Jun 2015)

Gavin Shuker: It is an honour to speak in a debate with so many epic maiden speeches. I have to admit, however, that I was slightly perturbed to see that all those making them pretty much looked older than me, which means that I am constrained to another five years of wandering around this place being asked if I know where I am going. There can be no future for our nation that is not pro-internationalist...

Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (20 Mar 2015)

Gavin Shuker: He is. Good. In that case, I need not offer any further praise other than that which many Government Members expressed when he sat down. Mr Deputy Speaker, as you know, for the rest of us, life goes on. I am a diligent young man, as you know, so I have done my due diligence in tidying up my office and preparing for disillusionment. [Laugher.] Not so Freudian. I very much hope and expect to...

Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (20 Mar 2015)

Gavin Shuker: The right hon. Gentleman makes his case clearly and in a statesmanlike manner, but I was in this House when he was taking through the legislation on fees. There were 91 speakers over those two days. I did not have the opportunity to speak but I was one of only about 10 Members of Parliament who knew what it was like to graduate with a large amount of student debt. I can tell him that it is...

Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (20 Mar 2015)

Gavin Shuker: My right hon. Friend has made an excellent point. There are people who are working—working in many of the jobs that have been trumpeted by the Conservatives—but are not earning enough to put food on their tables and a roof over their heads. That is one reason why the Conservatives are failing so shockingly on issues such as housing benefit while claiming to be trying to lower the welfare bill.

Gavin Shuker: Some 100,000 homes were destroyed or damaged in the most recent crisis in Gaza, and flooding, heavy snow and plummeting temperatures have now intensified the terrible conditions faced by Palestinian men, women and children. While I was in the Occupied Palestinian Territories last month people were literally freezing to death because they struggled to get hold of the materials they need to...
