Refugees (Family Reunion) (No.2) Bill (16 Mar 2018)

David Warburton: There is a lot to be said for what my hon. Friend says. As he knows, exceptional compassionate circumstances do exist, and the Home Office guidance allows for those things. He is absolutely right that there are issues about this, such as timing. There are the practicalities and the logistics of the situation, which can very often mean that it is not as easy as it may seem.

Refugees (Family Reunion) (No.2) Bill (16 Mar 2018)

David Warburton: No, I am not entirely comfortable with that. We need to look closely at how the Dubs scheme is now being run and what has happened to it since the Government accepted the amendment, because it has not necessarily been fully adopted, and councils have not taken it on in the way that they perhaps should have done. I am not sure that secondary movements really do improve lives. There are...

Refugees (Family Reunion) (No.2) Bill (16 Mar 2018)

David Warburton: As I am sure no one would disagree, it would only be in the interests of people traffickers—no one else—for children to be encouraged to leave their families and undertake perilous, difficult, dangerous journeys in the hope that their relatives might be able to join them in future; and how much worse if they found themselves forced to do that? My experience in chairing the inquiry...

Refugees (Family Reunion) (No.2) Bill (16 Mar 2018)

David Warburton: I have not read it, but I would be extremely interested to do so, so I will look at it. I thank the hon. and learned Lady. It sounds like an interesting report. However, the pull factor does appear to be cited time and again. As I said, there is a clear example in Germany. I would therefore be intrigued to know how that organisation has come to the opposite conclusion. We need to look at the...

Refugees (Family Reunion) (No.2) Bill (16 Mar 2018)

David Warburton: Let me get to the end of my speech. I am very pleased that, as we heard from my hon. Friend the Member for Taunton Deane (Rebecca Pow), the Justice Secretary is undertaking a review of legal aid reforms in which he will, properly, address the legal aid changes in respect of immigration cases. I look forward to seeing the report later this year and any changes that will result. Above all, in...

David Warburton: What assessment he has made of the effect of the Help to Buy scheme and the reduction in stamp duty on first-time buyers.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Help To Buy Scheme (12 Mar 2018)

David Warburton: It sounds like my right hon. Friend agrees with me that home ownership is a fundamentally good thing. Some 86% of our fellow citizens aspire to it, and there is nothing like spreading the economic benefits of ownership more widely in society. Does he further agree that we should use every policy lever at our disposal to encourage home ownership and to give those all-important first-time...

Rivers Authorities (8 Mar 2018)

David Warburton: We have very long memories in the west country, so I want to take Members back in time. It was said that some 400 years ago, in 1607, “huge and mighty hills of water” poured across the county, moving at a speed “faster than a greyhound can run”. Water covered the Somerset levels and moors, and it devastated the land—but not, I am afraid, for the last time....

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Carbon Savings (12 Dec 2017)

David Warburton: The good people of Frome are leading the way in moving to a low-carbon economy. We have ambitious plans to be carbon neutral by 2046, when all the energy needed to live, work and travel will be provided by renewable sources. May I invite the Minister, or indeed the Secretary of State, to Frome in sunny Somerset to hear this story first hand and see how these ambitions are being realised?

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Bovine Tuberculosis: Disease Control (21 Nov 2017)

David Warburton: What steps he is taking to ensure adequate medical provision in areas where there is a shortage of doctors.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Shortage of Doctors: Medical Provision (14 Nov 2017)

David Warburton: I am pleased to hear that the Department is working on addressing these issues, but can we also look closely at other difficulties specifically facing rural areas? Local patient transport is certainly one of these. With rural bus links thin on the ground and struggling, will the Secretary of State assure us that adequate provision will be made to ensure that patients can always access the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Offenders: Education and Employment (5 Sep 2017)

David Warburton: If prison is to achieve anything, it must change lives. It has the best chance of doing that if we offer people both education and assisted places to work on release. Given that three fifths of offenders still leave prison without identified education or any employment opportunities, will my right hon. Friend or my hon. Friend assure us that these programmes will be at the centre of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: UK Single Market (19 Apr 2017)

David Warburton: What assessment he has made of the contribution of the UK single market to Scotland.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: UK Single Market (19 Apr 2017)

David Warburton: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the best deal for Scotland is to stay part of the United Kingdom and to work with the UK Government to do all it can to support a new free trade agreement with the EU?

David Warburton: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, whether plans to dual the A303 and upgrade the A358 will change in response to the recommendations in the recently published National Audit Office report, Progress with the Road Investment Strategy.
