Environment Bill (28 Oct 2019)

Mark Pawsey: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker; I shall be as brief as I can. I welcome the provisions in the Environment Bill, and I particularly want to talk about the move towards a circular economy in which products and materials are reused and recycled.

Checks on Goods: Northern Ireland and Great Britain (24 Oct 2019)

Mark Pawsey: On a very practical level, PTI Express Ltd is a haulage company based in my constituency, transporting goods to and from both Northern Ireland and the Republic, and it were very concerned about the threat to its business—about the prospect of no deal. Of course, that threat to its business has now been abated as a consequence of the vote in the House earlier in the week, but what...

Debate on the Address: The Climate Emergency (17 Oct 2019)

Debate on the Address: The Climate Emergency (17 Oct 2019)

It is important that parents are reassured that what their children...

Leaving the Eu: Preparations (3 Sep 2019)

Mark Pawsey: Last week I visited a logistics business in my constituency that sends parcels to the Republic of Ireland, and I heard about the concerns of its customers about the need for paperwork. The business has offered to do it and charge for the time spent—about 20 minutes per form—but I understand that many businesses simply will not bother, which will lead to a loss of valuable export sales....

Business of the House (18 Jul 2019)

Mark Pawsey: Last week, I met my 97-year-old constituent, Ron Mockford, who served in the far east in the second world war, was captured by the Japanese and spent three and a half years in captivity, during which time he worked on the Burma railway.
