Opposition Day — [15th Allotted Day] — Sure Start Children’s Centres: Section 5 of the European Communities (Amendment) Act 1993 (27 Apr 2011)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: My hon. Friend is absolutely spot on. This is one of the great virtues of the Government’s policy, which is being welcomed by the gilt market. It is also worth noting what the late John Maynard Keynes said on such matters. Everyone in opposition quotes him and says that we should follow his policies but one of his policies, to quote the Chancellor, was that Governments should mend the roof...

Opposition Day — [15th Allotted Day] — Sure Start Children’s Centres: Section 5 of the European Communities (Amendment) Act 1993 (27 Apr 2011)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: When the hon. Gentleman talks about a pro-growth strategy, does he mean spending? If so, where on earth is the money coming from?

Industrial Relations (Voting Procedures): Finance (No. 3) Bill (26 Apr 2011)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: I thank the hon. Gentleman—if I may say so, my hon. Friend—for giving way. Many of us on the Government Benches sympathise with that point of view.

Industrial Relations (Voting Procedures): Finance (No. 3) Bill (26 Apr 2011)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: There is more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repenteth than over the 99 who are not in need of repentance, and it has been wonderful to listen to the hon. Member for Linlithgow and East Falkirk (Michael Connarty), because he made a wonderfully Conservative speech, saying that taxation and over-regulation are fundamentally bad things—bad for the economy, bad for business, and bad...

Industrial Relations (Voting Procedures): Finance (No. 3) Bill (26 Apr 2011)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: I am not entirely sure that that is what he did. I think he also stole from the Church, which is why I have my doubts about him; I am not really in favour of people pinching things from holy mother Church. The other great thing about this Budget—this is why it should be welcome—is that it recognises the limitations of governmental power. Let us consider what has happened in Japan since...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: State Pension Reform (4 Apr 2011)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: What the Minister has announced will be enormously welcome in my constituency. I know from correspondence with my constituents that they will be particularly interested in the raising of the state pension age, because they want a degree of certainty about when they can expect to retire. I urge the Minister to provide that certainty as rapidly as possible.

Food Labelling Regulations (Amendment) Bill (1 Apr 2011)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: It is interesting to reflect that the key aspects of both this and the previous Bill end up essentially being determined by foreign organisations. In this one, we see clearly that it is an issue of the European Union, and it is a great pleasure, as always, to see the Minister for Europe in his place, because he is wiser and better informed on these issues than almost anyone else in the House....

Food Labelling Regulations (Amendment) Bill (1 Apr 2011)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: I completely understand my hon. Friend’s concern about introducing a “notwithstanding” clause, because it does seem to some to be the nuclear option when it comes to our European relations. We would have to debate whether it was suitable to use such a powerful clause in relation to food labelling, and whether food labelling is an issue of such importance that it is worth fracturing our...

Food Labelling Regulations (Amendment) Bill (1 Apr 2011)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: There are occasions during a test match at Old Trafford when the rain falling can be the best possible rain, when it saves England from a notable defeat, but the rain that falls on the edge of the Mendips is the finest rain. That, as it happens, is why Joseph of Arimathea visited. He just wanted to see quite what high quality the rain was. I was talking about the high quality of the beef in...

Food Labelling Regulations (Amendment) Bill (1 Apr 2011)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: I thank my hon. Friend for that. I am greatly relieved, because I thought he was going to propose that we might get some kangaroo meat from Somerset. Although Somerset is very good at almost everything, kangaroos might find the climate a little colder than they are used to, and perhaps the fences not quite high enough. They might do awful things like hopping over to Gloucestershire, which...

Food Labelling Regulations (Amendment) Bill (1 Apr 2011)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: That seems perfectly reasonable. With regard to the Bill, I suppose that, as we are in the United Kingdom, the label is likely to be in English anyway, and English is such a commonly used language that it is hard to see that we could get the protection simply by saying that the labels had to be in English; they would be anyway. That would not indicate a great deal. We need to consider the...

Broadcasting (Public Service Content) Bill (1 Apr 2011)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: I am concerned about that suggestion, because it might lead to a whole load of left-wing voters moving to Wellingborough, which could undermine my hon. Friend’s majority.

Broadcasting (Public Service Content) Bill (1 Apr 2011)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: Will there be a special preservation order for “Test Match Special”, which really is part of the fabric of British life?

Broadcasting (Public Service Content) Bill (1 Apr 2011)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: Would not “Top Gear” be deemed public service broadcasting? It is highly educational, telling people about the motor car and the workings of the internal combustion engine, and it exposes some of the falsehoods in elements of the green movement.

Broadcasting (Public Service Content) Bill (1 Apr 2011)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: My hon. Friend has missed one aspect of the Bill that is undoubtedly affected by the European Union legislation. That is where it suggests that payment should be made only for programmes produced in the United Kingdom. The European Union would come down on that like a ton of bricks.

Coinage (Measurement) Bill (1 Apr 2011)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: I wonder whether the 25 kg that my hon. Friend the Member for Milton Keynes North (Mark Lancaster) was carrying was made up of coins.

Amendment of the Law (28 Mar 2011)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Written Answers — Health: Epilepsy: Drugs (28 Mar 2011)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the answer of 21 March 2011, Official Report, columns 769-70W, on epilepsy: drugs, if he will discuss with representatives of Bath and North East Somerset Primary Care Trust the use of stiripentol for the treatment of Dravet syndrome.

Amendment of the Law (24 Mar 2011)
