Covid-19 Update (5 May 2020)

Nigel Mills: Many of my constituents with cancer understood when their treatment was deferred. They are now keen to resume it but nervous about going to hospital, in case they catch coronavirus. Can my right hon. Friend assure them that their treatments will resume and that it is safe for them to go to hospital?

Education: Covid-19: Home Learning (5 May 2020)

Nigel Mills: What steps he is taking to support children and young people to continue learning at home while nurseries, schools and colleges are partially closed as a result of the covid-19 outbreak.

Education: Covid-19: Home Learning (5 May 2020)

Nigel Mills: Parents across Amber Valley have been doing a fantastic job of supporting their children to continue to learn while their schools are closed. Will my right hon. Friend join me in thanking them and set out what more we can do to support them to help their children continue to learn?

Cabinet Office: PPE Manufacture: UK Businesses (4 May 2020)

Nigel Mills: I thank the businesses, and also John Flamsteed Community School in Amber Valley, who have been making PPE for healthcare providers. Does the Minister agree that we are going to need UK manufacturers to keep making this equipment for the long term, and will he therefore be able to relax procurement rules to allow these people to have some longer-term contracts so that they can get maximum...

Income Tax (Charge) (11 Mar 2020)

Nigel Mills: As someone who likes to speak on the first day of the Budget debate, sometimes I have a bit of trepidation that I might listen to a long Budget statement and find that there are not many exciting measures, and then flick through the Red Book looking for things worth more than £1 billion and not find that much. This was not one of those Budgets. If we look at the new spending totals, we see...

International Trade: Foreign Direct Investment (5 Mar 2020)

Nigel Mills: What recent assessment she has made of the potential contribution of future foreign direct investment to the economy of each region of the UK.

International Trade: Foreign Direct Investment (5 Mar 2020)

Nigel Mills: I thank the Minister for that answer, and I join him in valuing the investment that Ferrero has brought to the old Thorntons factory. Most of the large employers in my constituency have had FDI at some point or other in their history, so what more can the Government do to ensure that that investment is spread out evenly across the country, and is not just focused in London and the south-east?

Tax Avoidance and Evasion (25 Feb 2020)

Nigel Mills: Let me start by congratulating my hon. Friends the Members for West Bromwich East (Nicola Richards) and for Stourbridge (Suzanne Webb) on their excellent maiden speeches. They certainly brought a crowd to a tax debate, which we perhaps do not always see. It is a pity that we have such a divisive, political motion today. There is a lot of cross-party agreement on this issue, but as there is...

Tax Avoidance and Evasion (25 Feb 2020)

Nigel Mills: Would my right hon. Friend consider setting a target to be met by the end of the current Parliament, to give HMRC greater encouragement to introduce whatever further measures and actions are needed? Perhaps he would commit himself to a relatively gentle target of, perhaps, 5%.

Universal Credit: Delayed Roll-Out (4 Feb 2020)

Nigel Mills: Will the Minister confirm that one solution to this would be to get more uptake for the excellent help to claim service through Citizens Advice? Will he confirm that service will be extended so that it is there for the whole period through to the end of the roll-out?

Defence: Defence Procurement (3 Feb 2020)

Nigel Mills: What recent estimate his Department has made of the number of jobs that defence procurement supports in the UK.

Defence: Defence Procurement (3 Feb 2020)

Nigel Mills: Many businesses across Amber Valley benefit from MOD contracts, but there are many more that could. What more can the Department do to work alongside businesses to help spread out these contracts and jobs around the country?

Transport: Railway Stations: Accessibility (30 Jan 2020)

Nigel Mills: Will the Minister urge Network Rail to get on with the level access improvements at Alfreton station and urge East Midlands Railway to scrap its plans to end the direct train services to London from my constituency, which would make it harder for disabled passengers to get to stations south of Nottingham?

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (9 Jan 2020)

Nigel Mills: If he will make a statement on his departmental responsibilities.

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (9 Jan 2020)

Nigel Mills: Does the Secretary of State agree that close working between UK authorities and their equivalents on the continent is key to making our future relationship work? Now that we have nearly agreed an orderly exit, will he confirm that discussions between tax authorities in the UK and France on ensuring that customs processes are streamlined can start, and will not continue to be blocked by the...

The Economy (24 Oct 2019)

Nigel Mills: Thank you for drawing me out first in the ballot this morning, Mr Deputy Speaker. I am not sure how long we will have to get the Bill through, but perhaps I should be less keen on an election now than I was first thing this morning. This Queen’s Speech offers a plethora of things that will be warmly welcomed in my constituency: getting Brexit sorted; £34 billion for the NHS; £14 billion...

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

Nigel Mills: The Secretary of State has referred to electronic declarations for goods going from west to east. Is he planning to build a new system in the next 14 months, or is he planning to use an existing system such as CHIEF, the customs handling of import and export freight?

Thomas Cook (25 Sep 2019)

Nigel Mills: Given that we cannot distinguish in this situation between passengers on a package holiday booking and passengers on a flight-only booking, does the Secretary of State agree that we should now bring flight-only bookings into the ATOL regime so that we have a fair contribution from those passengers and airlines?

Northern Ireland (5 Sep 2019)

Nigel Mills: The Northern Ireland civil service was clear that a decision to extend the welfare mitigation package was needed this autumn or else it would have to start taking alternative measures to advise Northern Ireland recipients of them on what action they should take. Has the Secretary of State got a plan to extend the welfare mitigations in the near future?
