Speaker’S Statement: Britain's Place in the World (15 Oct 2019)

Steve Brine: It is always a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for North East Fife (Stephen Gethins). I agreed with what he said about 0.7% of GDP for UK aid. He is dead right. That is one of the great achievements of this Government since 2010. I was interested in his point about working out the detail before a referendum has happened instead of in its last weeks. I wonder whether we will hear from the...

Speaker’S Statement: Britain's Place in the World (15 Oct 2019)

Steve Brine: I take that as no answer on the pound. I warmly welcome yesterday’s Queen’s Speech and the fact that we have at least opened a new Session of Parliament. We have 26 Bills to be getting on with and all the more immediate Brexit endgame stuff to play out. I will not labour them all, but I want to touch on a few, not least as a former Health Minister. I welcome plans for an independent NHS...

Preparations for Leaving the EU (8 Oct 2019)

Steve Brine: Page 49 of the document states: “The Government has permitted EU airlines to continue to fly to and from the UK until 24 October 2020”. How does the Minister envisage the situation after that, given the point that he has rightly made about business certainty, and what is the position regarding new routes that may be opened up during that time?

Amazon Deforestation — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (7 Oct 2019)

Steve Brine: Will the Minister give way?

Amazon Deforestation — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (7 Oct 2019)

Steve Brine: I thank the Minister for addressing my point. I will not say this in prose, but obviously we will be outside of being a member state and that trade deal will be signed by the remaining members of the European Union. Were the Government to consider a trade deal with Brazil in the future, does the Minister agree that Brazil’s approach to tackling climate change should be a consideration that...

Amazon Deforestation — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (7 Oct 2019)

Steve Brine: It is pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Bristol East (Kerry McCarthy). I hope it will not be another 10 years before she makes a speech on this subject. I enjoyed her contribution and found it educational, and I thank her for it. I thank the Petitions Committee for holding this debate—as a former Minister who responded to many Petitions Committee debates, it is nice to be on the...

Brexit Negotiations (3 Oct 2019)

Steve Brine: On 3 September, I asked the Prime Minister for some evidence of an emerging deal; you will remember it well, Mr Speaker. Last week I asked him again, and I thank him for the outline of the detail that he gave in response to me. Today I do not need to do that, because he has set out some real meat to Mr Juncker in his letter. I am very pleased to see it. I knew he wanted a deal, and he told...

Petition - Freewheelers' Use of Bus Lanes: South Western Railway (1 Oct 2019)

Steve Brine: Will the excellent Minister give way?

Petition - Freewheelers' Use of Bus Lanes: South Western Railway (1 Oct 2019)

Steve Brine: I thank my constituency neighbour, my right hon. Friend the Member for Romsey and Southampton North (Caroline Nokes), for securing this important debate. One bit of homework that I would give to the Minister and the new ministerial team is on the issue of smart ticketing, and specifically on part-time season tickets. We had a commitment in the 2017 Conservative manifesto and, two years into...

Health Infrastructure Plan (30 Sep 2019)

Steve Brine: We are rather pleased in Winchester at today’s announcement and with our place within it. My constituents do not care about the political knockabout in this House. They love their hospital and are really pleased that it is going to be invested in. Will the Minister confirm how the seed funding process will work in the immediate term—we are in wave 2, but we are keen to get cracking so...

Prime Minister's Update (25 Sep 2019)

Steve Brine: On 3 September, I asked the Prime Minister, given his view then that the chance of a deal had increased and that things were moving—as he said to me at the time—what evidence of that progress he could put before the House. I think that the Prime Minister is unfairly maligned, because I have sat face to face with him, as have many others, and I know he wants a deal. In the light of...

Brexit Readiness: Operation Yellowhammer (25 Sep 2019)

Steve Brine: What assurances has my right hon. Friend been able to give the port of Portsmouth, which is, as he knows, a roll-on roll-off port? He is aware of my concerns about lorries parked on the M27 and the A31 in my constituency in particular. Hampshire County Council has already invested significant amounts of my constituents’ money in preparatory work. Can he reassure me that his Department will...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill (4 Sep 2019)

Steve Brine: I understand that there is a political imperative to “get this done” and to “move on”, but is not the point that the practical imperative is that no deal will not allow us to move on? It will resolve nothing and will lead to many of the implications that the right hon. Gentleman has talked about. If we have no withdrawal agreement on 31 October, we will have to seek a withdrawal...

Leaving the Eu: Preparations (3 Sep 2019)

Steve Brine: I thank my right hon. Friend for making time to meet me during the recess and for today’s statement. Returning to the issue of medicine supply, one constituent wrote to me recently asking about her epilepsy medication. She said, “If we can’t get it easily, it will tip my life upside down”. She and I, as her MP, do not need ifs and buts or scare stories; we need hard facts. This is not...

G7 Summit (3 Sep 2019)

Steve Brine: As the Prime Minister knows, my constituents are passionately pro-deal, and I think he is too; in fact I know he is—he has told me that personally and he has told the House many times. But can I bust one of the most dishonest myths of all, which is that one cannot respect the referendum result and be in favour of leaving with a deal? That is where I and, I think, all my constituents are....

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill: Extension of period for forming an Executive (9 Jul 2019)

Steve Brine: I understand why my right hon. and learned Friend is speaking to amendments 15, 16 and 17, and I presume moving them formally when he gets asked, but obviously new clause 14, to which he has referred, was not selected. Do amendments 15, 16 and 17 work without new clause 14 being selected?
