Amendment of the Law (19 Mar 2015)

Dan Byles: I warmly welcome the Budget, and welcome the fact that the Chancellor resisted the urge, which all Chancellors face, to pull a pre-election rabbit out of a hat. Instead, we saw a competent Budget by a competent Chancellor that continues the excellent work of rebuilding Britain’s battered economy. The headline figures are very welcome: the deficit is falling; national debt as a percentage of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Mar 2015)

Dan Byles: It has been an honour and a privilege to be the Member of Parliament for North Warwickshire for the past five years, and I am particularly proud that in that time crime in North Warwickshire has fallen. There are more doctors and nurses in the George Eliot hospital, and the number of schools rated as needing improvement has halved. Perhaps most importantly, unemployment in North Warwickshire...

Opposition Day — [17th Allotted Day]: Advice on likely impact of onshore petroleum on the carbon budget (11 Feb 2015)

Dan Byles: I am curious. The hon. Gentleman says that the report might say that fracking is increasing emissions, but compared with what counter-factual—imported liquefied natural gas or gas imported from Qatar, for example?

Opposition Day — [17th Allotted Day]: Advice on likely impact of onshore petroleum on the carbon budget (11 Feb 2015)

Dan Byles: Is my right hon. Friend struck, as I am, by the fact that the Committee on Climate Change—hardly made up of a rabidly right-wing bunch of cut-throat business people—has expressly stated that a domestic shale gas industry can be entirely consistent with our emission reduction targets, because the lifecycle emissions of domestically produced shale gas are lower than those of imported...

Public Bill Committee: House of Lords (Expulsion and Suspension) Bill [Lords]: Clause 1 - Expulsion and suspension of members of the House of Lords (4 Feb 2015)

Dan Byles: The 2012 Bill was a terrible Bill, and I was proud to vote against it. I do not believe that any part of it should be a precedent for what we are discussing today.

Public Bill Committee: House of Lords (Expulsion and Suspension) Bill [Lords]: Clause 1 - Expulsion and suspension of members of the House of Lords (4 Feb 2015)

Dan Byles: Does not my hon. Friend agree that the rules will be laid out in the Standing Orders of the other place and so will not be arbitrary? I understand his point, but the word “arbitrary” is perhaps too strong.

HS2 Funding Referendum Bill (23 Jan 2015)

Dan Byles: If the Minister is suggesting that there might be more justification for holding a referendum simply of those directly affected by HS2, may I wholeheartedly endorse that and support him entirely?

HS2 Funding Referendum Bill (23 Jan 2015)

Dan Byles: It is a privilege to speak in the debate, and I pay tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Christchurch (Mr Chope) for bringing the matter before the House. It is a pleasure to follow my right hon. Friend the Member for Chesham and Amersham (Mrs Gillan), who eloquently outlined many of the arguments and concerns. I share those concerns 100% and I do not propose to repeat the arguments,...

HS2 Funding Referendum Bill (23 Jan 2015)

Dan Byles: I agree absolutely with the right hon. Gentleman. One need only look back at some of the guesswork relating to the channel tunnel and HS1 to see just how woefully wrong almost every prediction of passenger numbers and so on turned out to be. I agree that we should have a healthy dose of scepticism about the large numbers involved in this project. As my right hon. Friend the Member for Chesham...

HS2 Funding Referendum Bill (23 Jan 2015)

Dan Byles: Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that, although we do not have referendums on infrastructure projects across the board, this is a unique infrastructure project, and that because every party capable of forming a Government is in favour of it, it is impossible for any party to claim a mandate for it?

HS2 Funding Referendum Bill (23 Jan 2015)

Dan Byles: My hon. Friend is right to say that a lot of the economic analysis of this project has been simplistic. Evidence from France shows that while the number of visitors to Lille from Paris increased as a result of high-speed rail, there was a decrease in the number who stayed the night. The dynamic impacts of such projects are extremely subtle, but the economic analysis produced by the Department...
