Rail Services (Bedfordshire): Stamp Duty Reform (23 Jan 2018)

Robert Jenrick: It is a pleasure to speak under your chairmanship, Mr Streeter—I almost said Mr Speaker there; perhaps that is a Freudian slip. I am grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Carlisle (John Stevenson) for organising this debate and for bringing to it his customary thoughtful style and experience as a solicitor. I was also a solicitor before coming to this House, although not a property...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Air Passenger Duty (16 Jan 2018)

Robert Jenrick: Her Majesty’s Treasury regularly engages with the airline industry on air passenger duty. At the autumn Budget, we froze 2019-20 APD rates at 2018-19 levels for all short-haul passengers and for long-haul economy passengers. That provided a freeze for 95% of passengers.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Air Passenger Duty (16 Jan 2018)

Robert Jenrick: I am grateful to my right hon. Friend for his kind remarks. I pay tribute to my predecessor, my hon. Friend the Member for Harrogate and Knaresborough (Andrew Jones), who was well regarded across the House. As my right hon. Friend says, the Government are unable to exempt the return leg of a domestic flight. Of course, as we leave the European Union that could change, and the Treasury will...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Air Passenger Duty (16 Jan 2018)

Robert Jenrick: The hon. Lady is right to raise this issue, as Newcastle airport and others are very important to the economy of the north-east. As she heard during my response to the previous question, EU rules prevent us from changing the rules regarding the return leg of a domestic flight. We will keep the matter under consideration. We have, of course, taken other important steps, such as keeping the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Air Passenger Duty (16 Jan 2018)

Robert Jenrick: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for that question. As he knows, in the autumn statement we committed to a review of not just air passenger duty, but the impact of VAT on tourism in Northern Ireland. That review is under way and will report back in time for this year’s autumn Budget.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Public Spending: Wales (16 Jan 2018)

Robert Jenrick: Decisions announced by the Chancellor in the autumn Budget resulted in an increase of £1.2 billion to the Welsh Government’s budget. For the first time, this included more than £65 million thanks to the new Barnett boost agreed with the Welsh Government’s fiscal framework. This ensures that the Welsh Government’s block grant will increase in real terms over the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Public Spending: Wales (16 Jan 2018)

Robert Jenrick: I do not agree with the hon. Gentleman’s analysis or with his slightly cavalier attitude to £650 million of taxpayers’ money. This money is at the disposal of the Welsh Government and can be used for important things such as helping to support businesses and helping people to get on to the property ladder through Help to Buy.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Public Spending: Wales (16 Jan 2018)

Robert Jenrick: My hon. Friend makes a good point. As I said in my answer to the previous question, we have increased the budget for the Welsh Government. How they choose to spend that money, and how wisely they do that, is another question.

Attorney General: Business of the House (21 Dec 2017)

Robert Jenrick: One of the farcical stories of Newark’s 2017 is Network Rail’s continual failure to man the barriers at Newark Castle station, so it is a good job that Santa will be arriving through the air on a sleigh, because otherwise he may not even be able to get into the town. The latest instalment in this pantomime was that Network Rail’s operatives failed to recognise that the...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (21 Dec 2017)

Robert Jenrick: The opening of the Louvre in Abu Dhabi by President Macron last month demonstrated the power of culture to drive foreign and trade policy, but we all know that the glories of France are as nothing compared with the glories of our own country, so what can the Secretary of State and her Ministers do to advance British cultural diplomacy around the world, and might one element of that be our...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Review on inclusive growth and equality (18 Dec 2017)

Robert Jenrick: I am confused by the hon. Gentleman’s position on the bank levy. He says that he voted against it in 2011 because it was set at too low a threshold, but between 2011 and 2015 the then Chancellor raised the bank levy seven times and, on each occasion, the Labour party voted against it. Why did it do that?

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Review on inclusive growth and equality (18 Dec 2017)

Robert Jenrick: Will the Minister re-emphasise the point he has just made: that the practical effect for our constituents of the move he is making today will make it much more attractive for important British international banks such as HSBC and Standard Chartered, who have a choice of locations in which to be registered—HSBC recently considered whether to move to Hong Kong or even mainland...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Review on inclusive growth and equality (18 Dec 2017)

Robert Jenrick: In 2010, tax receipts from the financial services sector amounted to about £53 billion; today they amount to £71 billion. We are making the banks and the wider financial services sector pay their fair share, but we do not want a race to the bottom. We want the sector to be competitive, because tens of thousands of well-paid, highly skilled jobs throughout the country—not just...

European Council (18 Dec 2017)

Robert Jenrick: Never have my constituents in Newark been so grateful to wake up to Jean-Claude Juncker as they were a week ago on Friday, when they saw the Prime Minister shake hands with him. Looking to the future, as she goes to strike a comprehensive free trade deal, does she agree that although businesses in Newark would like a seamless transition, they would also like us to strike out and have enough...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Job Creation (18 Dec 2017)

Robert Jenrick: What discussions he has had with Cabinet colleagues on the number of jobs created since 2010.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Job Creation (18 Dec 2017)

Robert Jenrick: Despite a small recent decline in total employment, unemployment has continued to fall. Does my right hon. Friend agree that this suggests that the Government’s policies and the work of our great jobcentres across the country are making all the difference in matching jobseekers with available jobs? As it is Christmas, would he thank Ian Spalding—the manager of the Newark...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Dec 2017)

Robert Jenrick: At the end of their first, and successful, term, will my right hon. Friend congratulate the teachers, the parents and the students of the Newark free school? The school is designed to raise standards and performance in Newark, as is happening across the country. Would my right hon. Friend agree that, to Conservatives, great teaching like this is not just about education; it is a daily battle...

King’S College Hospital Foundation Trust (12 Dec 2017)

Robert Jenrick: Does my hon. Friend agree that one upshot from the noble Lord’s resignation is that he will have more time on his hands to use his proven financial prowess to prepare implementation manuals for the Leader of the Opposition?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (11 Dec 2017)

Robert Jenrick: If she will make a statement on her departmental responsibilities.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (11 Dec 2017)

Robert Jenrick: If we want to promote opportunity and reduce inequality, we have to start in the classroom. That is where the pioneering reforms such as the phonics revolution, which was set in chain by the Minister for School Standards, have made such an important difference. But it is the teachers who have made it happen, so will the Secretary of State thank the teachers of Newark and...
