Space Industry Bill [Lords] (15 Jan 2018)

David Morris: This is quite a great day for me because I have been the chairman of the parliamentary space committee for nearly four years. When I was elected in 2010, it was the first all-party group I joined, so I have been watching with interest over the past few years how this Bill has proceeded from its embryonic stages—from being just an idea—through various stages of development, to the...

Space Industry Bill [Lords] (15 Jan 2018)

David Morris: I thank my hon. Friend for that very knowledgeable interjection.

Space Industry Bill [Lords] (15 Jan 2018)

David Morris: I thank the hon. Lady for that great intervention. We are talking about £14 billion per annum going into our economy and about 38,000 people being employed in the sector, so it is huge, and it is expanding. Most of the technology that has been utilised, especially by American companies, has come from Great Britain—even in the early stages of space exploration—so we have a lot...

Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Jan 2018)

David Morris: Moving on to a positive note about the NHS, my NHS trust, Morecambe Bay, has turned around from being one of the worst in the country—it was safe to say that five years ago—to one of the best. That happened due to injections of huge amounts of cash, but the staff were amazing and turned the hospital around. Jackie Daniel, the chief—

Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Jan 2018)

David Morris: Jackie Daniel has received a damehood for turning around the Morecambe Bay trust along with the staff, which is very positive. Does my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister look forward to working with Jackie Daniel’s successor to carry on turning the trust around, and will she wish Jackie well?

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill (8 Jan 2018)

David Morris: I really wanted to contribute to today’s debate because my local port of Heysham is directly affected by what the outcomes of what we are discussing today will bring. I went to see the port not so long ago to talk about how we best facilitate the trade coming through it. I met the port authorities and the chief executive of Seatruck Ferries, Alistair Eagles, who envisaged that, given...

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill (8 Jan 2018)

David Morris: I could not have put that any better—I agree with everything the hon. Gentleman said. I will give just one taste of how trade works in my area. We are the first port of call—excuse the pun—for Northern Ireland. I hope that the hon. Member for North Antrim (Ian Paisley) and I are going on a little project on a Wrightbus—known as the Boris bus—from his...

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill (8 Jan 2018)

David Morris: The hon. Gentleman explains succinctly that the supply chain that makes the buses is immense in his constituency and in the wider UK. That is why trade must flourish between Northern Ireland, the United Kingdom and Europe. It is a fact that we will leave the EU, and it is best to think about how we do it. The Bill covers the initial stages of facilitating that.

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill (8 Jan 2018)

David Morris: I thank my hon. Friend for his intervention, which brings me nicely to my next point. I have to be careful what I say because I am still Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland. I put it on record that I wish him well. He has not just been an excellent boss; he is a more than excellent friend. I welcome the new Secretary of State, whose name has just...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: NHS Funding (Autumn Budget) (19 Dec 2017)

David Morris: I welcome the recent Budget announcement of billions more funding for the NHS, particularly the extra support to prepare for the winter. Will the Minister tell me what share of funding my local hospital will attain this winter?

Exiting the European Union: Negotiations: Confidentiality (14 Dec 2017)

David Morris: What assessment he has made of the potential merits of maintaining appropriate confidentiality in the UK’s negotiations with the EU; and if he will make a statement.

Exiting the European Union: Negotiations: Confidentiality (14 Dec 2017)

David Morris: We all value the Government’s being open about the negotiations, when they can be. In that vein, is my right hon. Friend aware of any Opposition Member having asked the EU to be more open about its negotiating process?

Royal Assent: Business of the House (7 Dec 2017)

David Morris: I am concerned about the way the Boundary Commission is operating its consultation, because 5,957 respondents—96% of all people consulted in Morecambe and Lunesdale—said they wanted to keep Morecambe and Lunesdale intact. Both parties agree that the communities of Lancaster and Morecambe should be kept separate, and since then more than 1,000 more submissions have been put in.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Court System: Modernisation (5 Dec 2017)

David Morris: What steps he is taking to modernise the court system.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Court System: Modernisation (5 Dec 2017)

David Morris: Part of the problem with the courts system is that the lay person does not understand the jargon. Will my right hon. Friend examine how we can improve communication within the system so that the ordinary man on the street can understand what is going on in court proceedings?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Homelessness and Rough Sleeping (4 Dec 2017)

David Morris: Homelessness is a very complex issue, and I am sure that everyone in the House agrees that it is something that we should not be facing. What discussions has my right hon. Friend had across Government Departments on, for instance, mental health, which is always identified as an issue in homelessness?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (15 Nov 2017)

David Morris: There is no reason.

Hospital Car Parking Charges (Abolition): Tax Avoidance and Evasion (14 Nov 2017)

David Morris: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Hospital Car Parking Charges (Abolition): Tax Avoidance and Evasion (14 Nov 2017)

David Morris: Thank you very much, Mr Speaker. I did not expect to be called so early. I am a little at a loss about what we are trying to achieve here: is this about tax evasion or is it about offshore companies? The reality is that offshore companies are legal entities, and a lot of them, especially across the Commonwealth countries and the overseas territories, have been set up using HMRC guidelines....
