Brexit Negotiations (3 Oct 2019)

Matthew Pennycook: As with the Malthouse compromise and the Brady amendment, it is difficult to look at these proposals and not conclude that those on the Government Benches are almost exclusively talking to themselves. But taking the proposals at face value, does the Prime Minister accept that even if they do form the basis—however unlikely—for a deal, there is no way that the arrangements set out in this...

Irish Border: Customs Arrangements (1 Oct 2019)

Matthew Pennycook: Over the last 15 minutes, the Minister has been at pains to stress the distinction between technical non- papers and final papers which are forthcoming. On the basis of that distinction, may I therefore ask him a simple question: without going into the detail, can he give the House an assurance that any final proposals that relate to the Irish border will not row back in any way from any of...

Education: Private Higher Education Providers: Financial Sustainability (9 Sep 2019)

Matthew Pennycook: What recent assessment he has made of the financial sustainability of private higher education providers.

Education: Private Higher Education Providers: Financial Sustainability (9 Sep 2019)

Matthew Pennycook: I thank the Secretary of State for his answer. Greenwich School of Management is unlikely to be the last private higher education provider to go bust in a system where market forces are the ultimate determinant of success, but it is of course the students and staff who pay the price. Can he tell me how many of the 3,500 GSM students—who are overwhelmingly mature, on low incomes and from...

Exiting the European Union: No Deal (5 Sep 2019)

Matthew Pennycook: The Secretary of State has said once again that the new Administration want to secure a deal, rather than leave without one, yet we know that no new concrete proposals have been presented to the EU. It has been reported that in the technical talks that took place yesterday between the UK’s chief negotiator and EU Commission officials, the UK team made it clear that the Government want to...

Exiting the European Union: No Deal (5 Sep 2019)

Matthew Pennycook: There was no answer there on the level playing field provisions. I am not sure why the Secretary of State is so reluctant to confirm that regulatory divergence from the EU, rather than alignment with it, is what the Government want to achieve. After all, as he mentioned, in the Prime Minister’s letter to Donald Tusk on 19 August that was for him “the point” of our exit. We have gone...

Vessel Emissions: River Thames (4 Sep 2019)

Matthew Pennycook: Before the Minister brings her remarks to a close—I appreciate the complexity and cross-departmental nature of this issue, so I am happy for her to write to me—it would be good to have some idea about what dialogue is happening between her Department, DFT, the Mayor of London and the Deputy Mayor on the issue of a single regulator. I note what she says about the Government’s position,...

Vessel Emissions: River Thames (4 Sep 2019)

Matthew Pennycook: I beg to move, That this House has considered emissions from vessels on the River Thames. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship once again, Mr Gray, and I am pleased that amid the current political turmoil time has been found to debate this important issue, which is of real concern to large numbers of my constituents. I have been seeking the debate for some time, and I am grateful...

Vessel Emissions: River Thames (4 Sep 2019)

Matthew Pennycook: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. It was a great frustration to him, as it was to me, that the developer would not listen and commit to plans for a clean, green terminal and shore-to-ship power. Nevertheless, it was right that the proposals as set out were scrapped, and residents very much welcomed that. I also welcomed Criterion Capital’s confirmation that the proposals had been...

Vessel Emissions: River Thames (4 Sep 2019)

Matthew Pennycook: The hon. Gentleman is absolutely right that a huge number of organisations have some regulatory role or other with regards to the river. As I will come on to argue, we need to bring some coherence and simplification to that by means of a single regulator for the Thames. I do not need to spend much time outlining why air pollution is such a serious problem. There is growing awareness among the...
