Business of the House (Today): European Statutory Instruments Committee (16 Jul 2018)

William Wragg: Little did I realise that the motion on the European Statutory Instruments Committee would attract so much attention at this time of the evening. It was surely the main reason why we all trundled down to attend Parliament today. I welcome what my right hon. Friend the Leader of the House said and, as a member of the Procedure Committee, I can say that it was a great pleasure for me to take...

Business of the House (Today): European Statutory Instruments Committee (16 Jul 2018)

William Wragg: Only because the hon. Gentleman was on the Procedure Committee?

Business of the House (Today): European Statutory Instruments Committee (16 Jul 2018)

William Wragg: There may well be—[Interruption.] The hon. Gentleman may be better furnished with the facts at this late hour than me. As a member of the Education Committee, I am in the minority in many ways, because its membership is seven women and four men. Indeed, the Committee that my right hon. Friend the Member for Basingstoke (Mrs Miller) chairs consists of eight women and three men.

Business of the House (Today): European Statutory Instruments Committee (16 Jul 2018)

William Wragg: A level playing field can be achieved without quotas. With that, I conclude my remarks and object to the amendment.

The House divided: Ayes 57, Noes 53.

William Wragg: What steps he is taking to ensure that the immigration system facilitates the hiring of sufficient skilled migrant workers for the UK’s needs.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Immigration: Skilled Workers (16 Jul 2018)

William Wragg: My right hon. Friend is absolutely right to support a better controlled and fairer migration policy. I wonder whether he can tell me when the long-delayed White Paper on the subject will be published, so that the public know that we are taking it seriously.

Eu: Future Relationship White Paper (12 Jul 2018)

William Wragg: I welcome my right hon. Friend to his post. I cannot help feeling a little sorry for him at this time. Is he sure that there is not another document, developed with and previewed by other Governments, which is being cooked up behind the scenes by Mr Robbins and our former friend the Prime Minister’s chief of staff and which will then be wheeled out to further undermine the previously...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (10 Jul 2018)

William Wragg: Following the Chequers statement, will my right hon. Friend the Lord Chancellor lay before the House details of what active provisions his Department is making for a deal not being secured with the European Union?

Petition - Home Education: Draft Guidance and the Consultation (9 Jul 2018)

William Wragg: I rise to present a petition whose terms are similar to those of the petitions presented by my hon. Friends the Members for Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland (Mr Clarke) and for North Herefordshire (Bill Wiggin), my right hon. Friend the Member for New Forest East (Dr Lewis), and the hon. Member for Manchester, Withington (Jeff Smith). Following is the full text of the petition: [The...

Estimates Day: Department for Education (3 Jul 2018)

William Wragg: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Harrow West (Gareth Thomas) and, on the Government side of the House, my hon. Friend the Member for North Warwickshire (Craig Tracey), who made very pertinent points about the need to maintain funding for maintained nurseries, which do such a fantastic job. I also thank the Backbench Business Committee, of which admittedly, I am a member, and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Legacy Issues (20 Jun 2018)

William Wragg: What progress she has made on the consultation on addressing the legacy of Northern Ireland’s past.

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Legacy Issues (20 Jun 2018)

William Wragg: Even though it is absent from the legacy consultation, and further to the questions asked by my right hon. Friends the Members for Rayleigh and Wickford (Mr Francois) and for New Forest East (Dr Lewis), will the Secretary of State reconsider promoting a statute of limitations so that veterans are protected from legal assault and are not hounded into old age?

Northern Rail Services: Greater Manchester — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (6 Jun 2018)

William Wragg: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Bolton North East (Sir David Crausby), who I congratulate on securing the debate. It is also a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Howarth. However, the residents of Stockport who I represent have been experiencing anything but pleasure from the introduction of Northern rail’s new and chaotic timetable, which came into force a...

Rail Timetabling (4 Jun 2018)

William Wragg: The announcement of an inquiry and compensation is of course welcome. Leaving aside the atrocious implementation of the new Northern timetable, will my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State bang heads together to sort out the morning peak-time 45-minute gap in services that is affecting my constituents so badly?

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community: Northern Rail Timetable Changes (24 May 2018)

William Wragg: It is a pleasure to have secured this debate, but that is in sharp contrast to the distinct lack of pleasure that hundreds of my constituents are experiencing as they try to travel to and from Manchester following this week’s introduction of Northern rail’s new, chaotic timetable. Northern rail’s revision to its timetable is negatively affecting services from Hazel Grove,...

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community: Northern Rail Timetable Changes (24 May 2018)

William Wragg: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention. There is surely no north-south divide in this situation. The fault of the services, as I will explain, can be traced back to significant delays to the Network Rail upgrade works on the electrification of the Manchester to Preston via Bolton route. That has had a knock-on effect on Northern’s ability to run its timetable properly. Network...

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community: Northern Rail Timetable Changes (24 May 2018)

William Wragg: My hon. Friend’s assessment is correct. We cannot get into a situation in which the buck is simply passed from one organisation to the other. It is clear that people need their commuter trains, and that is the end of the story as far as I am concerned. This whole affair is clearly a great disappointment for Northern rail passengers, who need and deserve a proper service. However, I...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: PSHE Lessons: Problem Gambling (14 May 2018)

William Wragg: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the provision of integrated user-friendly programmes is crucial to delivering good PSHE in primary schools, and will he recognise the work of organisations such as 1decision and Headway, which I have the pleasure of hosting in Parliament today?

Backbench Business - Banking Misconduct and the Fcabackbench Business (10 May 2018)

William Wragg: I congratulate the hon. Member for East Lothian (Martin Whitfield) on securing this debate, and I pay tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Thirsk and Malton (Kevin Hollinrake) who chairs the all-party group on fair business banking and finance. I would normally begin by saying what a pleasure it is to speak in such a debate, but although it is always a pleasure to speak with you in the...
