Tobacco Control Plan (19 Oct 2017)

Iain Stewart: The hon. Gentleman is making a powerful argument, but will he consider the fact that many tobacco manufacturers are actively investing in non-tobacco products, which may change their whole future investment strategy? In the light of that fact, should not investors—pension funds and so on—look at that long-term development of such businesses rather than their current position?

Monarch Airlines (9 Oct 2017)

Iain Stewart: As well as reviewing the effectiveness of the ATOL scheme in the light of this incident, will the Secretary of State take the opportunity to look at the providers of travel insurance? Many people travelling thought that they were covered for the collapse of an airline under their travel insurance policy, only to find that they were not.

Letting Agent Fees (Tenants) — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (6 Sep 2017)

Iain Stewart: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Thirsk and Malton (Kevin Hollinrake) on securing this important debate. Many of the points I wished to make were eloquently made by my hon. Friend the Member for North West Norfolk (Sir Henry Bellingham), so I will not repeat them all. My interest in speaking in this debate was borne from a meeting I had during the recess with the Milton Keynes...

EU Exit Negotiations (5 Sep 2017)

Iain Stewart: If it is deemed desirable to have a transition or implementation period for a fixed length of time after we leave, what reassurances can my right hon. Friend give me that during that period this country will be able to start formally conducting trade negotiations with other countries outside the EU?

New Towns — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (12 Jul 2017)

Iain Stewart: I should point out that the National Infrastructure Commission, which is looking at the Oxford-Milton Keynes-Cambridge corridor, is not just considering hard infrastructure such as roads, railways and the rest; broadband provision is very much part of its work.

New Towns — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (12 Jul 2017)

Iain Stewart: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Bailey. I add my thanks and congratulations to my hon. Friend the Member for Telford (Lucy Allan) on securing this important debate. She hit many nails on the head, particularly about the need for the Government to work on a cross-departmental basis and have a long-term strategy for new towns over the next few decades. I should put the...

New Towns — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (12 Jul 2017)

Iain Stewart: We have a mixture. Most do not have traffic lights, but a few in the centre do. As it turns 50, Milton Keynes is at a crossroads for future development. We have reached the size envisaged when Milton Keynes was designated as a new city in the 1960s in terms of both our physical footprint and our planned population of around a quarter of a million. The issue is not whether Milton Keynes should...

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill (3 Jul 2017)

Iain Stewart: It is a pleasure to make a brief contribution to this debate and to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Dumfries and Galloway (Mr Jack) and all the other hon. Members on both sides of the House who have made wonderful maiden speeches today. Indeed, I wonder whether their eloquence in painting pictures of the treasures of their constituencies has made the Bill irrelevant. Who would want to...

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill (3 Jul 2017)

Iain Stewart: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for giving way; I enjoyed our exchanges in the Committee stage of the previous Bill. I may be wrong, but given the intervention I made on the Minister earlier, I believe that it is important to get this Bill on to the statute book as early as possible so that the subsequent regulations can come into effect in an industry that has to plan 12 to 18 months in...

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill (3 Jul 2017)

Iain Stewart: Having also served on the Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill Committee, I have a sense of déjà vu here. I agree with the general nature of the measures the Minister wishes to introduce, because he is right that it is a fast-moving market, but there is also some concern in the industry, which plans typically 12 to 18 months ahead, that it will need some of the detail of the...

Economy and Jobs (29 Jun 2017)

Iain Stewart: I want to highlight four aspects of the Queen’s Speech that are particularly welcome. It is a pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for Don Valley (Caroline Flint); with my first point, I want to strike a consensual note and agree with her. We need to continue investment in the nation’s infrastructure. I was particularly pleased that the Queen’s Speech included a...

Economy and Jobs (29 Jun 2017)

Iain Stewart: I invite the hon. Gentleman to look at the innovation in my constituency, including the development of smart city technology, in which we are world leaders. I invite him to stop off in Milton Keynes when he next travels north so that we can show him what we are doing. Developing the intelligent mobility network touches on other areas of Government policy, so I urge Ministers to take a...

The Prime Minister Was Asked: Engagements (26 Apr 2017)

Iain Stewart: Should the Prime Minister find herself in the vicinity of Milton Keynes over the next few weeks, may I suggest a visit to Milton Keynes university hospital, where she will find rising clinical standards and investment going in, with a new ward, a new medical school and a new cancer treatment centre?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Rail Ticketing (30 Mar 2017)

Iain Stewart: What progress is being made to simplify the rail ticketing system.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Rail Ticketing (30 Mar 2017)

Iain Stewart: Many of my constituents travel frequently by train, but not every day and not always at peak hours, so the traditional season ticket is not appropriate for them. What new ticket products is the Minister encouraging train operating companies to introduce to meet and encourage such demand?

Sky/21ST Century Fox: Proposed Merger: Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill (6 Mar 2017)

Iain Stewart: I am pleased to have the opportunity to speak in support of this important Bill. I shall restrict my comments to parts 1 and 2—I have no concerns about parts 3 and 4. I wish to speak about the first two parts partly because of my role on the Transport Committee—we have considered these matters before—and partly because of a constituency interest. As has been referenced,...

Backbench Business: Road Traffic Law Enforcement — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (23 Feb 2017)

Iain Stewart: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gapes. It is also a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Liverpool, Riverside (Mrs Ellman), who has chaired the Select Committee very well over the many years I have sat on it. I want to pick up on some of the points she has made in a very good summary of our work. I enjoyed taking part in our inquiry. We heard good evidence from road...

Backbench Business: Road Traffic Law Enforcement — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (23 Feb 2017)

Iain Stewart: The hon. Gentleman makes a very good point and I agree with him. Fixed cameras have their role, for example where there is a dangerous junction, to get speeds down to 30 mph or whatever it is. That is an appropriate use of them. However, I am guilty of what he described—we slow down before the fixed camera and then accelerate once we are past it. I hold my hands up on that. Many...

Prime Minister: Engagements (8 Feb 2017)

Iain Stewart: Each year, the NHS reportedly spends £80 million more than it needs to on prescriptions for basic painkillers that can be sourced much more cheaply, but at the same time secondary breast cancer patients face being denied life-extending drugs such as Kadcyla by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence. Will my right hon. Friend review that poor allocation of resources and...
