Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Tourism (8 Feb 2018)

Gavin Robinson: The Minister will know that Discover England does a wonderful job in England, but one of the best things it could do is encourage people to visit Northern Ireland. Given that the question is about what we can do to promote tourism across the United Kingdom, does he recognise the unique attributes of many and various parts of the United Kingdom and does he encourage people to go there?

Attorney General: Drug Trafficking Gangs: Prosecution Rates (8 Feb 2018)

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Aerospace Sector (30 Jan 2018)

Gavin Robinson: Hear, hear! I was overjoyed on Friday night when Bombardier unanimously won its case with the United States International Trade Commission.

Fatalities in Northern Ireland and British Military Personnel — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (25 Jan 2018)

Gavin Robinson: I realise that it is probably improper for me to start a new debate during a concluding speech, but it depends on whether there has been an article 2-compliant investigation or not. If there has not been, the right hon. Gentleman is right; but where there has been, the option of a statute of limitations is open.

Fatalities in Northern Ireland and British Military Personnel — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (25 Jan 2018)

Gavin Robinson: As always, it is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir David. I follow three Members whose contributions were different in many respects. They are all engaged in this issue and have considered it thoughtfully throughout the Select Committee inquiries. It is a privilege for me serve on the Defence Committee and to be a part of the inquiry. While I was listening to our esteemed...

Fatalities in Northern Ireland and British Military Personnel — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (25 Jan 2018)

Gavin Robinson: I agree most fundamentally with my hon. Friend. She has been engaged for almost a decade in the policy matters and implications of legacy issues in Northern Ireland. I pay tribute to her for the work that she has done. These are not easy issues at all. I am not saying that those 300 deaths were murders or unlawful, but that should not mean that they are immune from investigation. I say that...

Modernising Defence Programme (25 Jan 2018)

Gavin Robinson: It is great to see you back in the Chair, Mr Deputy Speaker. I believe that the Secretary of State is seized of the danger of continually augmenting our threat assessments and losing capacity, only to find that old threats are renewed. As he looks to modernise this country’s defence capability, may I urge him to look closely at Northern Ireland? Not only does my constituency have the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Ivory Sales (25 Jan 2018)

Gavin Robinson: I support the noble aim of both the Secretary of State and the Minister in this regard, but the hon. Lady will be aware of concerns among antique dealers about the ramifications for products that contain historical ivory. Can she offer any assurance to assuage their concerns that the sale of ivory that has been in antiques for generations will be allowed to continue?

Oral Answers to Questions — Church Commissioners: Christians: Middle East (25 Jan 2018)

Rail Services (Bedfordshire): Shipbuilding Strategy — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (23 Jan 2018)

Gavin Robinson: I am grateful for the lettered references to me in glowing terms. Harland and Wolff in my constituency is one of many shipbuilders seized with the aspiration associated with the national shipbuilding strategy. Does my hon. Friend agree that it would be helpful for the Minister to clarify the distinction between UK content and UK benefit? What is intended, and what surety can UK shipbuilders...

Mental Health in Prisons — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (10 Jan 2018)

Gavin Robinson: The right hon. Gentleman mentions incarceration rate. I visited Pentonville jail at the weekend, where the cells are 13 feet by 7 feet. Victorians were not known for their generosity, but their cells were built for one prisoner each. Cells of exactly the same size now regularly hold two or four prisoners.

Delivery Charges (Scotland) (20 Dec 2017)

Gavin Robinson: In the last 18 months or two years we had exactly that roundtable, hosted by the hon. Member for Grantham and Stamford (Nick Boles), who was the Minister’s predecessor. It was a very successful engagement. Many companies go the extra mile and the extra cost to ensure that the hon. Member for Moray (Douglas Ross), those of us in Northern Ireland and others in the Channel Islands are...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Leaving the EU: Free Trade Agreement (20 Dec 2017)

Gavin Robinson: On the Canada-EU trade deal, Bombardier in my constituency is a company that greatly benefits from that trading relationship. Will the Secretary of State not only continue his support for Bombardier, but ensure that any future trade agreements do nothing that will injure such an important part of our local economy?

Policing (19 Dec 2017)

Gavin Robinson: The Minister was kind enough to acknowledge the bravery and hard work of police officers right throughout this country, but far from looking at the financial settlement for next year, serving police officers in the Police Service of Northern Ireland have yet to learn of their pay award this year. Given the political difficulties in Northern Ireland, will the Minister at least engage with the...
