Salisbury Incident: Further Update (14 Mar 2018)

Gavin Robinson: I listened very carefully on the subject of travel advice and advice for Football Association officials. The Prime Minister will remember the pitched battles in Paris that English supporters faced; will she reappraise the protection and security afforded to them if they travel?

Electric Dog Collars (14 Mar 2018)

Gavin Robinson: I asked a specific question about the extent of proposals. Can the Minister confirm that he will look carefully and kindly on the idea of the legislation, if it is introduced, extending across the entire United Kingdom?

Electric Dog Collars (14 Mar 2018)

Gavin Robinson: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on bringing this matter forward and on supporting the Secretary of State in his endeavour. However, he has just touched on a point about the extent of this sort of legislation. In Northern Ireland, we currently do not have a democratic institution that could pass a legislative consent motion, for example. I am interested in hearing his views as to whether...

Northern Ireland Finances (12 Mar 2018)

Gavin Robinson: I wish the Secretary of State many happy returns; she has had cross-party agreement on that. I understand her caution, concern and reluctance to advance issues of direct rule but, on the statement and on providing a soft landing for that perpetual glide path that we have had for the past 14 months, may I encourage her to be bold and to provide the political opportunities for decision making...

Salisbury Incident (12 Mar 2018)

Gavin Robinson: I commend the Prime Minister for the stance she has adopted today. When she returns to the House, will she take the opportunity to assuage the cross-party concerns on the Select Committee on Defence about the de-escalation of our presence in the high north, the reduction in maritime surveillance and patrols, and the cancellation of this year’s cold weather training? There is a need for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Defence Suppliers: Innovation (5 Mar 2018)

Gavin Robinson: The portfolio management agreement that the Ministry of Defence struck with MBDA offers the framework through which we can achieve innovation with defence suppliers. Is the Minister considering agreeing more portfolio agreements, and does he envisage that that will be any time soon?

Ministry of Defence (26 Feb 2018)

Gavin Robinson: I am grateful to the Chair of the Select Committee for the points he is making. We can starkly illustrate this issue. Training operations that had been committed for next year have been delayed, and we now hear that there are more. We also heard, very openly and honestly, at the Defence Committee last week not only that we going to have to cut mobile phone contracts and car hire contracts,...

Ministry of Defence (26 Feb 2018)

Gavin Robinson: Do you still use it?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Regional Organised Crime Units (26 Feb 2018)

Gavin Robinson: The Security and Economic Crime Minister will be aware of the great number of loyalist and republican crime gangs that operate with organisations in England, Scotland and Wales and also internationally. He knows that they are subject to the paramilitary taskforce, but will he meet me to discuss how we can ensure that that succeeds?

Northern Ireland (20 Feb 2018)

Gavin Robinson: In situations such as this, we will always get verbal excess or an aspirational wheeze from some of the participants. Will the Secretary of State indicate clearly that nowhere in the Good Friday agreement, the St Andrews agreement, the legislation that underpins them or the constitution of this country is there provision for joint authority?

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)

Gavin Robinson: The National Crime Agency just showed its “Invisible People” exhibition in Belfast. It is a harrowing portrayal of what individuals go through when they are exploited through prostitution or for drugs and forced labour. Are we winning the battle?

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

Gavin Robinson: What steps he is taking to support the aerospace sector.

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. In paying tribute to the Secretary of State and to the Minister responsible for the aerospace industry, I ask that they stand resolute against any appeal that may be lodged and ensure that the C Series, now that it is finally ready for take-off, is the...

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...
