Justice and Home Affairs Opt-out (7 Apr 2014)

Mark Reckless: The Secretary of State says that he does not want to hand over powers over Justice and Home Affairs to the European Union entirely. Is he happy to hand them over in part?

Justice and Home Affairs Opt-out (7 Apr 2014)

Mark Reckless: It is a privilege and an honour to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Esher and Walton (Mr Raab). He spent six years as a Foreign Office lawyer and has a family back story that is perhaps more exotic than that of many on the Government Benches. Over the past half hour, he has, with his searing intellect, differentiated the small print, which he understands as well if not better than anyone...

Justice and Home Affairs Opt-out (7 Apr 2014)

Mark Reckless: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for drawing that example to the attention of the House. It goes to show that in principle we cannot sign up to the European arrest warrant, because we do not have a sufficient degree of trust in the similarity and protections of all EU 27 judicial and policing systems to allow us to do that. People in our country deserve and have had, over centuries,...

Justice and Home Affairs Opt-out (7 Apr 2014)

Mark Reckless: My hon. Friend has made a very sensible point. I think that, as we get nearer to the election, we need to differentiate between what we believe in as Conservatives and what we have been forced to agree to by the need to be in harness with the Liberal Democrats. Given that they have not fulfilled their promises to us, and as we discover in the course of our negotiations with our European...

Justice and Home Affairs Opt-out (7 Apr 2014)

Mark Reckless: I think the Liberal Democrats will ultimately find that as we act to others, so they will act to us.

Justice and Home Affairs Opt-out (7 Apr 2014)

Mark Reckless: The debate is about the opt-out, Mr Deputy Speaker, and other Members have spoken at length about what we might opt back into. I merely suggest to the House that, having opted out, we should not opt back into anything. A number of arguments support that view, but I believe that the most important argument is that anything that we opt back into will be judiciable by the European Court of...

Justice and Home Affairs Opt-out (7 Apr 2014)

Mark Reckless: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

Justice and Home Affairs Opt-out (7 Apr 2014)

Mark Reckless: In response to the right hon. Gentleman’s first point, how many of our own citizens—who had done nothing wrong and been convicted of no crime—is he prepared to see detained in foreign prisons in return for those 100 people going free?

Justice and Home Affairs Opt-out (7 Apr 2014)

Mark Reckless: rose—

Justice and Home Affairs Opt-out (7 Apr 2014)

Mark Reckless: If we were to take that path, would the resulting international agreement be judiciable in The Hague rather than in the integrationist Court in Luxembourg?

Written Answers — Treasury: State Retirement Pensions (3 Apr 2014)

Mark Reckless: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what assessment he has made of the effect of changes to pensions on the level of net migration and the number of over-55s who may emigrate; and what analysis his Department has made of the effect of this policy on the likelihood of meeting the target of reducing net migration to under 100,000 by 2015.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Yarl’s Wood Immigration Centre (Detainee Death) (31 Mar 2014)

Mark Reckless: The House will understand the Minister’s reluctance to comment on particular cases, but does he agree that the general record of the police and the Crown Prosecution Service in these matters shows that there is no culture of impunity in this country for those involved in immigration detention, whether they are in the private or public sector?

Written Answers — Justice: Domestic Violence (31 Mar 2014)

Mark Reckless: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what his policy is on the implementation of the so-called Eve’s Law.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Charter for Budget Responsibility (26 Mar 2014)

Mark Reckless: We have to make these cuts because the expenditure has been unmanaged. As my hon. Friend the Member for Ipswich (Ben Gummer) says, for the first time there will be more within the supposed “annually managed” category than the amount that is subject to departmental expenditure limits. The measure that the Chancellor has brought before us today will mean that for the first time this £120...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Charter for Budget Responsibility (26 Mar 2014)

Mark Reckless: As we learnt in the Budget, the amount we will spend on benefits for the disabled—as the Minister of State, Department for Work and Pensions, my right hon. Friend the Member for Wirral West (Esther McVey), will know well—is £1.5 billion more than was estimated in the autumn statement just three and a half months ago. In the past, we would have just ignored that and borrowed the extra...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Charter for Budget Responsibility (26 Mar 2014)

Mark Reckless: My hon. Friend is completely right. The Labour party used to be the workers’ party, but it has become the welfare party. It has become the defender of the public sector. When Parliament discussed these matters 90 years ago and before, the radicals were those who were trying to control Government spending and who were standing up for the taxpayers—the people in their constituencies—and...

Written Answers — Environment Food and Rural Affairs: River Medway (26 Mar 2014)

Mark Reckless: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what responsibilities the Environment Agency has for the River Medway from Allington Lock to Tonbridge; and what action they have taken to limit vegetation impeding the flow of the (a) river traffic and (b) water.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: High-speed Rail (24 Mar 2014)

Mark Reckless: I am all in favour of better links with Europe, at least in this context. Does the Secretary of State accept, however, that most of the demand for an HS1-HS2 link will be domestic? Will he learn from the sub-optimal interchange at Stratford and consider installing a travelator to get people quickly and easily between St Pancras and Euston?

Written Answers — Environment Food and Rural Affairs: Rivers (24 Mar 2014)

Mark Reckless: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs who is responsible for managing overhanging vegetation which may impede the flow of a river and increase flooding risk.

Written Answers — Environment Food and Rural Affairs: Rivers (24 Mar 2014)

Mark Reckless: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what enforcement powers exist in relation to overhanging vegetation impeding a river's flow; and how many times such enforcement action has taken place in the last five years.
