Future of DFID — [Ms Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (27 Feb 2019)

Craig Tracey: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Dorries. I congratulate the hon. Member for Slough (Mr Dhesi) on securing the debate. The topic is incredibly important. A challenge for MPs is the fact that it is sometimes a hard sell with our constituents. Often they do not see the results of what is done; they just hear about the money going in at the front end. They do not see what...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (21 Feb 2019)

Craig Tracey: Leaving the EU gives us the opportunity to enhance animal welfare standards, and my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State has consistently said that, once we have left, we will control the export of live animals. Will the Minister confirm that all options are still on the table and that a ban remains a possibility?

Making Tax Digital (19 Feb 2019)

Craig Tracey: I welcome this statement. One of the barriers to creating a coherent strategy to encourage more female entrepreneurs is a lack of gender-disaggregated data to enable us to understand not just how many there are but what sectors they are in. Does my right hon. Friend agree that this platform could provide a way to resolve this?

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Cancer: Diagnosis (19 Feb 2019)

Craig Tracey: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what steps his Department is taking to ensure that the forthcoming NHS workforce implementation plan will ensure that staffing numbers are at the level needed to achieve the Government’s target to diagnose 75 per cent of cancers at an early stage by 2028.

Exiting the European Union (Financial Services) (18 Feb 2019)

Craig Tracey: The Minister has talked a lot about the importance of financial services, and I completely agree with that. There is often a perception that financial services are all London-centric, but the insurance industry, for example, employs 300,000 people, and two thirds of those are around the UK. It is fair to say that getting this legislation right will protect all our constituents across the country.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (14 Feb 2019)

Craig Tracey: I thank my hon. Friend the Minister of State for our meeting this week allowing me to reiterate the case for much-needed improvements to the A5 in my constituency that would significantly improve the commute for thousands of my constituents every day. Does he agree that effective partnerships between stakeholders such as Highways England, local authorities and the Government are key to...

Pensions Dashboard (6 Feb 2019)

Craig Tracey: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Ryan. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Hendon (Dr Offord) on securing the debate. I declare an interest as chair of the all-party parliamentary group for insurance and financial services. I welcome the concept of the pensions dashboard. My hon. Friend the Minister knows that I am a huge fan of it. The world of work is...

UK as a Financial Services Hub — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (6 Feb 2019)

Craig Tracey: My hon. Friend is right that we need to get regulation that works, but an issue put to me by the insurance industry is that a Norway-plus model would not work for the insurance market as a whole, as we would not all be working to the same rules. The insurance rules are set at EU level, rather than on a global scale, so we need to look at the different facets of financial services, to ensure...

UK as a Financial Services Hub — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (6 Feb 2019)

Craig Tracey: My hon. Friend makes some important points about banking. Does he agree that the insurance sector has a massive role to play? It brings in £29.5 billion to the UK economy, including, as I am sure the Minister will appreciate, £12 billion in taxes. The critical point about the insurance industry is that it employs 300,000 people, two-thirds of whom live outside London, so the industry has an...

UK as a Financial Services Hub — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (6 Feb 2019)

Craig Tracey: My hon. Friend is making a powerful case. His point about regulation is critical to ensuring our future success, which will be underpinned by proportional regulation. Does he agree that we need to give the regulator a function as a promoter of the industry? If it had to promote the industry across the world, it would have to understand better what it regulates. The rules that apply to...

UK as a Financial Services Hub — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (6 Feb 2019)

Craig Tracey: I am really interested in this area, and I chair the all-party parliamentary group for insurance and financial services, which is considering that very point. Does my hon. Friend agree that although the internet and digital technology bring a lot of positives, they disproportionately disadvantage vulnerable people, who do not always have access to the face-to-face advice that they used to get...

Petition - None[P002354] (5 Feb 2019)

Craig Tracey: I would like to present a petition on behalf of parents, carers and staff of the fantastic Bedworth Heath and Atherstone maintained nursery schools in the same terms. It has 89 signatures. The petition of the parents, careers, staff and governors of Atherstone maintained nursery school in Atherstone, Warwickshire. [P002351]

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (24 Jan 2019)

Craig Tracey: I have been contacted, as I am sure many colleagues have, by UK citizens living in the EU who are concerned about their future voting rights locally after we leave the EU. Will the Minister update the House on the progress that the Department has made on that?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (23 Jan 2019)

Craig Tracey: North Warwickshire and Bedworth voted overwhelmingly to leave the EU in 2016, and from the many conversations I have had with constituents since, I am in absolutely no doubt that if they were asked again, they would vote the same way. Does the Prime Minister agree therefore that there is no credibility in the argument for a second referendum and that our constituents want this Parliament to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Leaving the EU: Farming Policy (17 Jan 2019)

Craig Tracey: What plans he has for farming policy after the UK leaves the EU.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Leaving the EU: Farming Policy (17 Jan 2019)

Craig Tracey: I welcome the Agriculture Bill, because for nearly 50 years our farmers have been tied to a fundamentally flawed common agricultural policy where payments are skewed towards the largest landowners. Can the Minister provide further detail on the public goods that will be rewarded under the new scheme?

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [9th Allotted Day] (15 Jan 2019)

Craig Tracey: It is no secret that I voted to leave the EU, as did 67% of my constituents and nearly 17.5 million people across the UK. The reasons for voting to leave varied across the country, but I spoke to thousands of my constituents before, during and after the referendum and they were clear about what they voted for. They want to see an end to free movement, they want control of our borders, they...
