Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Cyber-attacks (9 Jul 2018)

James Cleverly: I welcome my right hon. Friend’s commitment to use the reserve forces as a way to get cyber-experts into the field, metaphorically. Will he ensure that they have a career path through the reserve forces that does not cap them because of their niche specialisations?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (3 Jul 2018)

James Cleverly: In Braintree, in Halstead and in the villages of my constituency, including my own lovely village of Earls Colne, there are a number of thriving businesses in retail, manufacturing and other sectors, but at the moment there is a disparity between the tax treatment of physical businesses and that of digital businesses. What plans do Ministers have to rebalance the tax treatment of those two...

Food Advertising (Protection of Children from Targeting): EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement (26 Jun 2018)

James Cleverly: I intend to speak only briefly. I welcome the Minister for Trade Policy, my hon. Friend the Member for Meon Valley (George Hollingbery) to his place. I think we all agree that his first performance was outstanding. I am sorry he is not in his place, but the hon. Member for Dundee East (Stewart Hosie) gave a very concise and well-defined explanation of how international competition works....

Food Advertising (Protection of Children from Targeting): Draft EU-Canada Trade Agreement Order (26 Jun 2018)

James Cleverly: I apologise in advance if my speech is rather chopped up. Unfortunately, due to the huge discourtesy that the shadow Front Bench displayed to the House, I shall have to heavily curtail the points that I wished to make. In a paper that I co-wrote with Tim Hewish entitled “Reconnecting with the Commonwealth: the UK’s free trade opportunities”, I made the point that because of...

Food Advertising (Protection of Children from Targeting): Draft EU-Canada Trade Agreement Order (26 Jun 2018)

James Cleverly: I am not giving way. We have so little time. CETA is the first major trade agreement signed by the EU since the one with South Korea in 2011. It is therefore entirely appropriate to welcome its arrival. This morning, I had breakfast with Stephen Harper, the former Prime Minister of Canada. He reinforced the point made by Canada’s current Prime Minister, who has said that a UK-Canada...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Nato (20 Jun 2018)

James Cleverly: Does my right hon. Friend agree that in the era of hybrid warfare and conflict in front of cameras, it is more important than ever that our service personnel feel that if they make difficult decisions in the moment they will be protected through their lives? I raise this because of the intrusion of cameras in conflict.

Backbench Business: A120 Dualling (19 Jun 2018)

James Cleverly: I thank the Minister for her comments. What I take away is that although she was careful not to prejudice her Department’s decision, and we completely understand that she is duty bound to go no further than she has, I think I speak for all Members representing the A120 route and the region when I say that we are pleased to hear that, on behalf of the Department, she recognises the...

Backbench Business: A120 Dualling (19 Jun 2018)

James Cleverly: Unfortunately, the hon. Lady has missed quite a fundamental point and I will reinforce it, if not for her benefit then for the ears of the Minister. This proposal is not about taking existing transport patterns and just making them happen on an improved road. What this proposal is about is unlocking residential and employment opportunities within the region, so that people are not forced to...

Backbench Business: A120 Dualling (19 Jun 2018)

James Cleverly: Does my hon. Friend agree that not only will there be an economic return on investment in this road, but, because of the particular nature of the local and regional economy, the return on investment in the road will be greater and quicker than those on similar investments in other road projects around the country?

Backbench Business: A120 Dualling (19 Jun 2018)

James Cleverly: I beg to move, That this House has considered the proposal to dual the A120. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. A line in my maiden speech to this House in 2015 was a request of the Government. I said that I would fight for the Government to “help relieve congestion on the A120, a road so regularly and heavily congested that many drivers cut through...

Backbench Business: A120 Dualling (19 Jun 2018)

James Cleverly: I thank my hon. Friend for that point. He is right, and he invites me to come on to what I think is a credible pitch for why this road needs improvement. I am certain that my parliamentary colleagues who have constituencies along the route will enhance and reinforce some of the points that I will briskly make, to give time for others to speak. I have already mentioned having a major airport...

G7 (11 Jun 2018)

James Cleverly: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the education, empowerment and emancipation of women, particularly in developing countries, is a skeleton key that unlocks both social and economic development? Will she ensure that, despite whatever else is pressing at the time, we do not let this most important of agenda items slip down the priority list of the G7?

Social Justice Commission: Serious Violence Strategy (22 May 2018)

James Cleverly: rose—

Social Justice Commission: Serious Violence Strategy (22 May 2018)

James Cleverly: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker. I now feel under a significant degree of pressure. I will crack on. I welcome the strategy. Right from the start, and peppered throughout, the strategy makes the point that the issue cannot be resolved by just arresting people. That is absolutely key. Police intervention must form an important part of the solution, but it is not the only solution. I will come...

Social Justice Commission: Serious Violence Strategy (22 May 2018)

James Cleverly: I will.

Social Justice Commission: Serious Violence Strategy (22 May 2018)

James Cleverly: I am sorry, but the right hon. Gentleman is wrong. The idea that somehow the police response to the 2011 riots swept potential murderers from the streets and locked them up is just statistically wrong. [Interruption.] No, the big drop in teenage murders in London happened in the operational year—

Social Justice Commission: Serious Violence Strategy (22 May 2018)

James Cleverly: No. There was a massively significant drop in the immediate aftermath of the 2008 elections—in the 2008-09 year followed by the 2009-10, preceding the 2011 riots. [Interruption.] I am going to try to make some progress, because I promised Madam Deputy Speaker that I would. The philosophical underpinning that works with the Time for Action strategy and the work that we did in London is...

Attorney General: Gangs: Exploitation of Vulnerable People (10 May 2018)

James Cleverly: What steps the CPS is taking to increase its effectiveness in prosecuting crimes involving the exploitation of vulnerable people by gangs.

Attorney General: Gangs: Exploitation of Vulnerable People (10 May 2018)

James Cleverly: Essex, being one of the home counties, suffers from the displacement effect of gang activity from London, and we have unfortunately seen pockets—it is only pockets at this stage—of violent gang activity in the county. What financial resources are the Government allocating to tackle serious gang violence?
