Brexit Negotiations (11 Dec 2017)

Wes Streeting: Paragraph 49 of the agreement says very clearly: “In the absence of agreed solutions, the United Kingdom will maintain full alignment with those rules of the Internal Market and the Customs Union which, now or in the future, support North-South cooperation, the all-island economy and the protection of the 1998 Agreement.” In making that undertaking, can the Prime Minister provide...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Withdrawal Agreement Payment to the European Union (6 Dec 2017)

Wes Streeting: I entirely agree with the points that the hon. Lady is making. It was interesting that this afternoon in the Treasury Committee, the Chancellor acknowledged that the cost to the UK of settling any outstanding debts with the European Union will be small beer compared with the costs if we do not get a good long-term trading relationship with the EU. There are two issues: the short-term cost and...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Withdrawal Agreement Payment to the European Union (6 Dec 2017)

Wes Streeting: Is my hon. Friend aware yet of the evidence the Chancellor gave to the Treasury Committee this afternoon, when he, in effect, confirmed that there has been no Cabinet decision or agreement about the desired end position of the British Government? So we are leaving the single market and the customs union—that is not a decision taken by the Cabinet—but if we ask any Minister what...

EU Exit Negotiations (5 Dec 2017)

Wes Streeting: The Secretary of State says a vote to leave was a vote to leave the single market and the customs union, but that is not what leavers said. He says that the Conservative manifesto committed to pulling us out of both, but that is not what the majority of the public voted for. Is it not time to accept that he will have a majority in this House for a Brexit based on membership of the single...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Wes Streeting: The Minister talks about the constructive relationship with the devolved Administrations. Has he taken time to look at what they have said about the shambles today?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Wes Streeting: I came for your speech.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (29 Nov 2017)

Wes Streeting: An 11-year-old primary school pupil approached me to tell me that he, his mother and his two brothers live in a single room in a bedsit in Ilford and to ask whether I could find him a council flat like the one in which I grew up. What is heartbreaking is that I know, and the First Secretary will know, it is very unlikely he will ever have one. Given that the measures announced in last...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Low-paid Workers: Wage Growth (28 Nov 2017)

Wes Streeting: The fact is that, according to the Office for Budget Responsibility, disposable incomes are set to fall this year. On top of that, the cost of living is rising faster than pay. The area that the Chancellor has direct responsibility for is public sector pay. Is it not time to remove the pay restraints on the lowest-paid public sector workers to make sure that, as their bills go up, their wages...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Hawk Aircraft: Overseas Promotion (27 Nov 2017)

Wes Streeting: What discussions he has had with the Secretary of State for International Trade on promoting Hawk aircraft overseas.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Hawk Aircraft: Overseas Promotion (27 Nov 2017)

Wes Streeting: I recently had the opportunity to talk to Unite and GMB members about the importance of a consistent flow of orders to maintain jobs throughout the supply chain for Hawk. In a recent debate on defence aerospace strategy, the Minister referred to 12 Hawk aircraft for Qatar. Has this figure changed from the six initially announced? Could she update us with progress on getting further orders on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Hawk Aircraft: Overseas Promotion (27 Nov 2017)

Wes Streeting: Is it six or 12?

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (23 Nov 2017)

Wes Streeting: My hon. Friend is speaking with characteristic passion and clarity, but is not the lesson of the defence cuts over the last seven years that once we have lost a capability it takes a huge amount of time, energy and investment to get it back, and this is a capability we cannot afford to lose?

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (23 Nov 2017)

Wes Streeting: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Cleethorpes (Martin Vickers). The Chancellor set low expectations ahead of this Budget, and he certainly lived up to them. What was most interesting and telling about yesterday’s statement was not any particular measure but what the Chancellor and the independent Office for Budget Responsibility said about the state of our economy. Real...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (23 Nov 2017)

Wes Streeting: The Secretary of State says that we need 300,000 new homes a year to address the housing crisis, so presumably he has just committed to making sure that that many homes are built. Until he addresses the supply side of the housing crisis, he must stop fuelling demand-side pressures, which is what he has done. As the Office for Budget Responsibility has said, the elimination of stamp duty will...

Uber: Personal Data Theft (23 Nov 2017)

Wes Streeting: (Urgent Question): To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport to make a statement on Government responsibilities and policies for protecting British citizens, following the theft of the personal data of 57 million Uber customers and drivers.

Uber: Personal Data Theft (23 Nov 2017)

Wes Streeting: I thank the Minister for that reply. Did I hear correctly that, even after the Government learned about the data breach, they are still not in a position to tell the public how many customers and drivers in the UK have had their personal data compromised? If so, that is outrageous on Uber’s part. Uber apparently paid criminal hackers $100,000 to delete the data and keep quiet, but what...

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Wes Streeting: I welcome the exemption on the vehicle excise duty supplement for new zero-emission-capable taxis, so I thank the Chancellor for listening to representations. Through the right hon. Lady, may I urge the Chancellor to bring forward that measure so that it will kick in earlier than April 2019, because many such vehicles will be on the road from next month and we will want drivers to be able to...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Charter of Fundamental Rights – Government Report (21 Nov 2017)

Wes Streeting: Does my hon. Friend agree that this is about not just the application of the charter of fundamental rights in British law, but the message that we send to the rest of the world? That goes to the heart of the problem with the so-called British Bill of Rights. There are no British rights; there are universal human rights. That is the message that this Government and our continent should send to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Commonwealth Summit: London (21 Nov 2017)

Wes Streeting: I am delighted that we are hosting the Commonwealth summit next year. Following the most recent meeting of the United Nations Human Rights Council and in relation to our bilateral relationship with Sri Lanka, will the Foreign Secretary take this opportunity to reiterate our Government’s position that the Sri Lankan Government must ratify the Rome Statute of the International Criminal...

Student Loans Company (20 Nov 2017)

Wes Streeting: Given that Mr Lamey has criticised the lack of support from the Department for Education, and given that this House has had to rely on various media reports that paint a picture of a Student Loans Company plagued by bullying, low morale and high sickness rates, is it not in the public interest that the Jenkins report is put into the public domain, not least so that Committees of this House...
