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?

Supply and Appropriation (Anticipation and Adjustments) Bill: Bus Services Bill [Lords] (1 Mar 2017)

David Warburton: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Manchester, Withington (Jeff Smith). I feel I should apologise for not talking more about Manchester. Fabulous place though it is, I think that it has been well-represented in the Chamber today so, instead, I will talk briefly about the importance of buses to rural communities, which has been mentioned by my hon. Friends the Members for North...

Supply and Appropriation (Anticipation and Adjustments) Bill: Bus Services Bill [Lords] (1 Mar 2017)

David Warburton: Absolutely. I thank my hon. Friend for making that point, and he must be reading my mind, because that leads on very neatly to my third point, which is about increasing choices in the chain of provision—passenger choice and supplier choice. I am conscious that the franchising measure will ensure, as the Government have made clear, that “only authorities with the ability, powers...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (28 Feb 2017)

David Warburton: In the past year international tourist rates and spend grew faster in the south-west than in London, and the south-west also attracted more domestic tourists than any other region. Given the Mayor of London’s plans for a hotel levy, will the Chancellor look again at cutting the rate of VAT on tourism?

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Topical Questions (8 Feb 2017)

David Warburton: Safetech Engineering in Frome offers superb expertise in nuclear safety and cyber-security, but to get security clearance and bid for work at Hinkley C or the Ministry of Defence, it needs to be a list X company. The only way to get that status is to be sponsored by another list X company or the MOD. Does the Minister’s Department have plans to let business escape from that circularity...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: [2nd day] (1 Feb 2017)

David Warburton: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Burnley (Julie Cooper). Her words about healing division and working for the will of the people—a phrase we are not allowed to use any more—very much chime with me. This is clearly an historic moment—the result of decades of campaigning in this House and outside it, and of course the result of a decision by the people of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 Jan 2017)

David Warburton: On 27 December, another young woman lost her life driving through the west country on the A303. In the past decade, more than 1,000 people have been killed or injured on that road. For 40 years, Governments have promised to dual the lethal parts of the road where two lanes become three or three lanes become two, with no central reservation. The queues on the road are also legendary. I know...

Local Government Finance Bill (23 Jan 2017)

David Warburton: I join other hon. Members in wishing the Minister for Housing and Planning a happy birthday. The House has been very patient. I will not hold up our proceedings for long as I am sure the Minister wants to enjoy his birthday for a couple of hours. The House has also been very accommodating, as we are yet to hear a lot of the detail regarding the Bill. As Members on both sides of the House have...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Prisoners: Rehabilitation and Work (6 Dec 2016)

David Warburton: What further plans the Government have to provide prisoners with (a) drug rehabilitation and (b) education and skills training to improve their prospects for finding work on release from prison.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Prisoners: Rehabilitation and Work (6 Dec 2016)

David Warburton: I thank the Minister for that. Given that 42% of adult prisoners in England and Wales were permanently excluded from school, does he agree that it is only through education that the cycle of reoffending can be stopped? What more can be done to ensure that this message properly resonates across the prison estate?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (6 Dec 2016)

David Warburton: I am sure that my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State agrees that one of the main challenges facing the justice system is integrating ex-offenders back into the outside world upon their release. Does she agree that this requires the co-operation of employers as well as former prisoners? What is the Department doing to ensure that such co-operation is both encouraged and increased?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Asset Recovery Regime (5 Dec 2016)

David Warburton: What steps her Department is taking to confiscate money from criminals; and what plans she has further to strengthen the asset recovery regime.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Asset Recovery Regime (5 Dec 2016)

David Warburton: I thank the Home Secretary for that. The Criminal Finances Bill contains many measures to combat illegal and immoral financial activity, but can my right hon. Friend confirm that the new law enforcement measures in relation to unexplained wealth orders will ensure not only that we can better combat illegal activity but that the principles of transparency will be upheld?

Prime Minister: Engagements (2 Nov 2016)

David Warburton: As I am sure the Prime Minister is aware, my constituency apparently contains more cows than any other. That means world-class cheese, from Godminster and Barber’s to Montgomery’s Cheddar, Wkye Farms and many more. Can my right hon. Friend assure the west country’s farmers that in negotiating the best deal for Britain in the coming weeks and months, the interests of our...

Nissan: Sunderland: Cultural Property (Armed Conflicts) Bill [Lords] (31 Oct 2016)

David Warburton: It is a pleasure to talk on this subject, and on this Bill which, as have heard, has been a long time coming. It is of great cultural and symbolic significance. I know the debates in another place have been conducted in a constructive bipartisan spirit, and it is nice to see this debate conducted in the same vein. I am delighted that the Government have found parliamentary time for this type...

Small Charitable Donations and Childcare Payments Bill (11 Oct 2016)

David Warburton: It is a pleasure to support a Bill that, although pretty straightforward and simple in outlook, as we have heard, is likely to have a significant impact on the small groups and charities that need it most. In my constituency in Somerset, the uniquely spectacular levels of community spirit and the astonishing energy with which people are keen to help those around them mean that there is a huge...

Digital Economy Bill (13 Sep 2016)

David Warburton: As we have heard today, the Bill casts its net wide and sets out to address an enormous range of issues, doing so extremely well for most. I want to add my voice to further issues, to echo the words of others and to make a special plea for rural areas and the particular problems that they face. By the end of next year, 95% of premises are likely to have access to broadband speeds of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Prisons: Mobile Phones (6 Sep 2016)

David Warburton: What steps her Department is taking to prevent the use of mobile phones in prisons.
