EU Exit Negotiations (17 Oct 2017)

Peter Grant: I am grateful to the Secretary of State for advance sight of his statement. About a year ago, the Prime Minister said that we cannot expect a running commentary, but in truth we would not have to run very fast to keep up with the negotiations. The right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) has already commented in similar terms to the BBC’s Laura...

Prisons Policy/HMP Long Lartin (12 Oct 2017)

Peter Grant: I fear the Minister might have misunderstood the situation described earlier by the right hon. Member for Kingston and Surbiton (Sir Edward Davey), because the main difference in Scottish Government policy has not been to suddenly release prisoners early; it has been to give the courts a way of sentencing and punishing low-level offenders without sending them to prison in the first place....

European Union (Approvals) Bill: Approval of draft decisions under Article 352 of TFEU (10 Oct 2017)

Peter Grant: I will not rise to some of the nonsense the hon. Gentleman is speaking. Will he confirm whether he is familiar with the resolution of the House requiring Ministers to get either clearance or an agreement to waive scrutiny from the European Scrutiny Committee, and will he confirm that when the International Trade Secretary—I think it was him, but I cannot be sure—signed CETA, he...

European Union (Approvals) Bill: Approval of draft decisions under Article 352 of TFEU (10 Oct 2017)

Peter Grant: I am grateful to the hon. Member for giving way and for reminding us that as well as the co-operation with Canada, subject to this proposed Act, a much more significant and detailed co-operation agreement was finalised not so long ago. He will be aware that while the Bill has been offered a potential six hours debating time on the Floor of the House, the CETA deal was agreed without a single...

European Union (Approvals) Bill: Approval of draft decisions under Article 352 of TFEU (10 Oct 2017)

Peter Grant: I am happy to speak in support of the Bill. As I mentioned in my intervention, it seems ironic that something that appears to attract little opposition and not even a great deal of concern across the House could, if necessary, be granted a total of six hours of debate—tonight’s allocation and what we had on Second Reading—on the Floor of the House, yet massively important...

Catalan Independence Referendum (10 Oct 2017)

Peter Grant: Will the Minister give way?

Catalan Independence Referendum (10 Oct 2017)

Peter Grant: The hon. Gentleman was genuinely prescient in applying for the debate when he did. Does he agree that the job of politicians is to talk to people they disagree with, to try to find ways of agreeing without resorting to violence? Given that Catalonia has submitted 19 formal requests to the Spanish state for talks on the constitution and to date 19 of them have been rejected, does the hon....

Uk Plans for Leaving the EU (9 Oct 2017)

Peter Grant: I gently remind the Prime Minister that if she wants to make a habit of suspending Conservative parliamentarians who act against the British interest, she really does not have to go as far as Brussels to find some prime candidates. Given her often professed concern for the fate of UK nationals living in the European Union, how does she feel about the fact that when we had the opportunity to...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Employment and Support Allowance (9 Oct 2017)

Peter Grant: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, how many claimants who were placed in the work-related activity group for employment and support allowance during the financial year 2014-15 remained in that group for two or more years.

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Housing Benefit: Self-employed (9 Oct 2017)

Peter Grant: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, if he will change the housing benefit criteria for small business owners so that only the owner's income is taken into account in the first year of the business making a profit.

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: New Businesses: Housing Benefit (9 Oct 2017)

Peter Grant: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what discussions his Department has had with the Department for Work and Pensions on the criteria for assessing the income of housing benefit claimants trying to set up a small business.

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: County Courts: Judgements (9 Oct 2017)

Peter Grant: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what steps his Department is taking to help individuals or companies correct County Court records which wrongly indicate that they have a judgment against them without incurring costs.

Princess Royal Hospital Telford: UK Nationals in the EU: Rights — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (12 Sep 2017)

Peter Grant: I am happy to plead guilty to being the hon. Member in question. I think the figure that I quoted was 80% to 20%, taken directly from the House of Commons Library analysis of the August negotiations. Is he telling us that the Library researchers have got it wrong?
