Nuclear Power (4 Jun 2018)

Nigel Mills: I urge the Secretary of State to back small modular reactors, which could be the solution for lower-cost nuclear energy. Is there more the Government can do to help the industry bring forward these ideas so that we can be a leader in the world and not a follower?

International Trade: Free Trade Promotion (17 May 2018)

Nigel Mills: What steps his Department has taken to promote the merits of free trade to the public.

International Trade: Free Trade Promotion (17 May 2018)

Nigel Mills: A slightly surprising grouping, Mr Speaker. Does the Secretary of State agree that the public might be even more strongly in favour of free trade if they are completely convinced that the right remedies are in place for goods that come from countries that are perhaps not quite as keen on free trade as we are? The ceramics industry, for example, has a big base in my constituency, so will he...

Infection Prevention and Control — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (15 May 2018)

Nigel Mills: I congratulate the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon) on securing this debate. It reminds me of a debate on much the same topic that we had a few months ago. Its aim was to find out from the then Minister when the Government might enforce the strategy they had announced. It is a pity that we are repeating that debate a few months later and we still do not have the answers. The case has...

Infection Prevention and Control — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (15 May 2018)

Nigel Mills: Yes, that would be clear progress. However, I sense that we would notice an unknown person walking round the ward with a clipboard, which might make someone behave more carefully. I am not sure how easy it is to stop the word going round the hospital that such work is being done, but I accept that that is better than one member of the existing team doing it. The question is: can we find a...

Tributes: Baroness Jowell: Schools That Work For Everyone (14 May 2018)

Nigel Mills: Amber Valley is an area with no free schools and no selective schools, and sadly attainment is lower than we would like it to be. How will my right hon. Friend’s welcome suggestion of prioritising such areas work in practice? What can he do to encourage new schools into areas like that?

Tributes: Baroness Jowell: Schools That Work For Everyone (14 May 2018)

Nigel Mills: I asked about prioritising areas with low attainment.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Competition and Consumer Protection (1 May 2018)

Nigel Mills: What steps he is taking to ensure that the industrial strategy benefits consumers through increased competition.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Competition and Consumer Protection (1 May 2018)

Nigel Mills: Does my right hon. Friend think that the competition regime that we have in the UK is fit for purpose, and are there sufficient resources to enable it to review all the major deals that seem to keep happening?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Tax Avoidance and Evasion (17 Apr 2018)

Nigel Mills: What progress has been made on reducing tax avoidance and evasion.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Tax Avoidance and Evasion (17 Apr 2018)

Nigel Mills: I echo the praise for HMRC’s performance in tackling tax avoidance and evasion over recent years. Is the Chancellor becoming more convinced of the importance of having public country-by-country reporting, so that not only HMRC but customers and campaigners can see where multinationals are making their profit? That way, we can make sure that they are paying the right tax in the right...

Northern Ireland Assembly Members (Pay) Bill (21 Mar 2018)

Nigel Mills: If a determination was made to reduce pay by a third, for example, is the hon. Gentleman’s understanding that that determination would lapse when the Executive re-formed? If the Executive fell again, that cut of a third could be reactivated, but the power would not be there to change that third to a half or to something else. Whatever is done now is what will happen if the Executive...

Northern Ireland Budget (Anticipation and Adjustments) Bill (20 Mar 2018)

Nigel Mills: The Select Committee has met representatives of WAVE and looked at their proposals. Has the hon. Gentleman thought about how to design a pension that gave people who suffered mental health problems as a result of the troubles the right sort of compensation? I suspect that that might include far larger numbers than the 500 people and £4 million a year that he cites, but I cannot see how...

Health and Social Care: Hand Gel Usage (20 Mar 2018)

Nigel Mills: What progress Public Health England has made on implementing his Department’s policy of publishing data on hand gel usage in NHS trusts as an indicator of hand hygiene compliance.

Health and Social Care: Hand Gel Usage (20 Mar 2018)

Nigel Mills: I am sure the Minister will agree that it is a matter of real importance that all NHS staff wash their hands at all the required five moments of patient contact. Does she agree that it is disappointing that we have not quite got that data published yet, and will she set a date when we will be able to see that data for each trust?

Northern Ireland Finances (12 Mar 2018)

Nigel Mills: I welcome the statement, but does my right hon. Friend agree that the fact that this year, unlike with the previous budget, she has had to take some decisions that could not have been thought through by the Executive before they fell means that today we are several steps further towards direct rule than we were a couple of weeks ago?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Community Transport (1 Mar 2018)

Nigel Mills: What steps his Department is taking to support community transport operators.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Community Transport (1 Mar 2018)

Nigel Mills: The Minister will know that the changes on which he is consulting pose a real threat to the future of some operators. What more can he do to protect the existing use of permits rather than require what are generally small local charities to move to the full commercial status of the operator licence?

Pensions Auto-enrolment (28 Feb 2018)

Nigel Mills: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Davies. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Chippenham (Michelle Donelan) on securing this important debate. I will not waste my precious five minutes by recounting the triumphant statistics on how successful auto-enrolment has been, but about 1,250 businesses in Amber Valley have been enrolled and about 13,000 of my...
