Digital Economy Bill: Universal service broadband obligations (26 Apr 2017)

Nigel Adams: Thank you, Madam Speaker, for giving me this final opportunity to speak on this Bill. I am particularly pleased given all our hard work and the fact that the Government have made the completion of its passage a priority during this final week. I will confine my remarks to Lords amendments 246 and 247, which address problems in the secondary ticketing market that I, along with many other music...

Digital Economy Bill: Universal service broadband obligations (26 Apr 2017)

Nigel Adams: I could not agree more. It is despicable that Viagogo has dodged and been slippery around attending the Select Committee. There have been so many victims of Viagogo that it should have taken the opportunity to come and explain how it markets itself and presents its website. I wholeheartedly agree with my hon. Friend.

Digital Economy Bill: Universal service broadband obligations (26 Apr 2017)

Nigel Adams: I can assure the hon. Lady that my thunder is still very much intact and has not been stolen. I totally agree. The campaign that Claire Turnham has run has been exemplary, but she should not have had to run it. The customer services team at Viagogo should have dealt with the complaints that were flooding in. We will see, but I suspect that we have not heard the last of Viagogo in this place....

Business of the House: Declarations of Interest (23 Mar 2017)

Nigel Adams: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. As you will be aware, the Committee on Standards has today published a report, following an inquiry into my declarations of interests during Select Committee inquiries last year, and it has found that there were breaches of the code. The report states that the Standards Committee found that these breaches were very minor. I am grateful that the Committee also...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (1 Mar 2017)

Nigel Adams: Does the Prime Minister agree that, when tickets to a teenage cancer charity gig by Ed Sheeran are being resold on the viagogo ticket website for more than £1,000, with none of that money going to the charity, and tickets to the hit musical “Hamilton” are being touted for upwards of £5,000 when viagogo knows only too well that resold tickets are invalid for entry, it is...

Intellectual Property: British Economy — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (28 Feb 2017)

Nigel Adams: The hon. Gentleman highlights a very important issue. Would he welcome, for example, YouTube developing a subscription service so that creators could benefit more widely from any income driven through there?

Intellectual Property: British Economy — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (28 Feb 2017)

Nigel Adams: Those are startling figures. Does the hon. Gentleman have any idea of the potential tax revenues—on 40% of fuel sales and 25% of cigarette sales—that the Government are losing out on? Those are extraordinary numbers.

Intellectual Property: British Economy — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (28 Feb 2017)

Nigel Adams: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that the speed of uptake of IPTV devices is quite breathtaking? As he will know, a user can watch effectively any channel from more or less anywhere, including the public service broadcasters. What sort of a threat does he think that is to the PSBs?

Intellectual Property: British Economy — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (28 Feb 2017)

Nigel Adams: I am sure that the hon. Gentleman will agree that in other contexts the Government are rightly concerned about children getting access to pornography. Having seen yesterday’s demonstration and a previous one given by Sky, does he share my concern that on some of the platforms in question it is possible to access pornography alongside children’s television programmes? It seems to...

Intellectual Property: British Economy — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (28 Feb 2017)

Nigel Adams: I beg to move, That this House has considered the importance of intellectual property to the British economy. Thank you for chairing the debate this morning, Mr Gapes. I also thank the Backbench Business Committee for allocating time to the important subject of British intellectual property. I was particularly keen to have the subject before the House again because we are in the midst of a...

Intellectual Property: British Economy — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (28 Feb 2017)

Nigel Adams: Absolutely. I completely share my hon. Friend’s pleasure at IP’s inclusion. That tells us that the Government are taking IP, which cuts across so much of our country’s industrial policy, seriously. I am very much of his opinion. The Digital Economy Bill, which is in the other place, has only three clauses on IP. I do not take the Government to task for that—it has been...

Intellectual Property: British Economy — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (28 Feb 2017)

Nigel Adams: I completely agree with the hon. Gentleman, but it is a start. I understand we are the first country in the world to put together such a code of practice, but enforcement is really important, because without the ability to take a stick to the problem we are somewhat limited. I very much welcome the agreement as a start, but he and I both tend to speak on the side of creators, who would like...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (27 Feb 2017)

Nigel Adams: Local authorities come in for a bit of stick in this Chamber from time to time, but the Secretary of State will be fully aware of the tremendous work that North Yorkshire County Council did in Tadcaster over the past year. Will he take this opportunity to thank North Yorkshire and David Bowe in particular, who did so much great work in ensuring the restoration of the bridge? Will he also...

President Trump: State Visit — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (20 Feb 2017)

Nigel Adams: Will the hon. Lady give way?

President Trump: State Visit — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (20 Feb 2017)

Nigel Adams: I am extremely grateful. The hon. Lady is sending a powerful message, but I want to take her back to her points about other heads of states who have come, because I am a bit confused. Many Members have mentioned some rather unsavoury figures who have been afforded state visits. Not so long ago we rolled out the red carpet for the Emir of Kuwait, which is a place where, if someone is gay,...

President Trump: State Visit — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (20 Feb 2017)

Nigel Adams: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

President Trump: State Visit — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (20 Feb 2017)

Nigel Adams: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (1 Feb 2017)

Nigel Adams: It is quite difficult to follow that, Mr Speaker, but back in the real world—[Laughter.] In December 2015, my constituency suffered terrible flooding, especially in the town of Tadcaster. The damage became worse when the bridge collapsed, separating the town. Thankfully, the bridge will be reopened, hopefully this week. Will the Prime Minister join me in thanking all those who were...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill (31 Jan 2017)

Nigel Adams: It is a great pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Swansea West (Geraint Davies), although I hope that my tone will be a bit more positive than his. I am not entirely sure that I would buy a second-hand motor from him, let alone a mobile phone. I strongly support the Bill. My support for leaving the European Union was clear, and the view of my constituency was also clear: approximately 60%...

Us Immigration Policy (30 Jan 2017)

Nigel Adams: Many thousands of people will be comforted by the fact that all British passport holders will be able to travel into the US, and that those who have the legal right to be here will be able to apply for a visa. Seven countries are on President Trump’s list—their citizens are banned from entering the US for a period of 90 days. Every one of those countries bans Israeli passport...
