Exiting the European Union: Withdrawal Agreement Negotiations (19 Jul 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: What recent progress he has made on negotiations on the UK leaving the EU.

Exiting the European Union: Withdrawal Agreement Negotiations (19 Jul 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: The Secretary of State will be aware that the UK has a near £70 billion trade deficit with the EU, and it is transparently in the EU’s interest to get a deal that keeps trade flowing. Is he aware whether European businesses and companies are lobbying EU negotiators and Governments to ensure a mutually beneficial deal?

Proxy Voting (18 Jul 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: Does the Leader of the House share my disappointment, from talking to potential parliamentary candidates, at just how many of them are put off standing for Parliament altogether because of the widely held perception that this place is inconsistent with family life or even the aspiration to a family life? How many potential fantastic MPs have we lost on both sides of the Chamber because of...

Visit of President Trump: Policing (12 Jul 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: I am very proud to declare that I love America. My wife is American, my son was born in America, my daughter has a US passport, and I lived and worked in America for more than 10 years. I love America and Americans, but I sometimes feel I am almost the only one in this place to do so. [Interruption.] Does the Minister agree that the visit of a US President is symbolic of our overall...

Eu: Future Relationship White Paper (12 Jul 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: My constituents are a realistic, sensible and practical lot and, unlike some politicians, they know that they will not always get 100% of what they want in life, but they do expect their politicians to deliver. Before the referendum, the 58% of my constituents who voted for Brexit told me clearly that what they wanted was control of their borders, control of their laws, an end to freedom of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Air Quality (12 Jul 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: What more can the Government do to promote more environmentally friendly diesel fuel and diesel vehicles?

Leaving the EU (9 Jul 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: Will the Prime Minister confirm that services make up nearly 80% of the UK economy? Yet there never has been, and probably never will be, a properly functioning single European market in services, which is probably one of its greatest failures. Is not taking a flexible approach to services therefore eminently sensible?

Counter-Daesh Update (3 Jul 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: As part of the armed forces parliamentary scheme, I have been fortunate to meet many men and women who have participated in Op Shader and our counter-Daesh activities overall. How many such men and women do we need to thank for their service and their sacrifice—often being away from their families for months at a time?

Ministry of Justice: Department of Health and Social Care and Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (2 Jul 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Bristol South (Karin Smyth). In fact, all the speakers so far this evening command the respect of both sides of the Chamber for obvious reasons given what they have said. I, too, agree with a large amount of what has been said. It is also a pleasure to speak in this very week of the 70th anniversary of the NHS. We are talking this...

Ministry of Justice: Department of Health and Social Care and Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (2 Jul 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: The hon. Lady makes a perfectly valid point. The differentials in life expectancy concern me greatly, but we have come such a long way. Pensions were first introduced in 1908 for people aged 70, when the average life expectancy was 48 for men and 52 for women. Life expectancy increased slowly as the century went on, but I believe that it is now—quite staggeringly—78 for men and 82...

International Trade: Topical Questions (28 Jun 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: I read a fantastic Ministry of Defence document the other day that showed how the global centre of economic activity has shifted over time: 30 years ago, it was in the middle of the Atlantic; today, it is somewhere over Egypt; but in 2050 it will be somewhere around Vietnam. Is it not right, therefore, that our trade negotiations should accordingly shift south and east?

The Minister for Women and Equalities Was Asked: Maternity Discrimination (28 Jun 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: What steps she is taking to tackle maternity discrimination.

The Minister for Women and Equalities Was Asked: Maternity Discrimination (28 Jun 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: Susan Wojcicki is the chief executive officer of YouTube and she has been quite outspoken on this issue. She says that mothers given paid maternity leave, for example, come back to work with new skills and insights that help a company’s bottom line. Does the Minister agree that supporting mothers in the workplace not only is the right thing to do, but can help and be good for business, too?

Privately Financed Prisons (27 Jun 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: I welcome the Minister’s recent statement and his overall progressive approach towards prisons. I welcome, too, the gratitude and appreciation he shows for all who work in the Prison Service. Will he confirm whether, under the previous Labour Government, the use and number of private prisons increased or decreased?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: School Budgets (25 Jun 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: Does the Minister agree that there is nothing morally superior about maintaining a blatantly unfair existing system, and is it not fair and reasonable therefore to target increases in school funding on schools, such as those in Worcestershire, that have been relatively underfunded for decades?

Business of the House (21 Jun 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: The Leader of the House will be aware that today is the summer solstice, but she may not be aware that it also marks the end of the great British asparagus festival, held largely in my constituency. Does she agree that the best asparagus in the world comes from the Vale of Evesham—it even has EU protected status—and may we have a debate in Government time to celebrate great...

Gosport Independent Panel: Publication of Report (20 Jun 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: Can the Secretary of State confirm that all deaths in the NHS will be properly assessed by a coroner or a medical examiner so that lessons can be learned and avoidable deaths minimised?

NHS Long-Term Plan (18 Jun 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: I and my constituents warmly welcome this extra money for the NHS. Does the Secretary of State agree that the British public are not stupid? They, unlike some of the Opposition, are well aware that any and all Government expenditure always comes from taxation, either now or in future. We have listened. We have had a conversation. They have told us that they want more spending on the NHS. We...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Social Housing (18 Jun 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: What steps his Department is taking to support the building of new social housing.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Social Housing (18 Jun 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: Will the Minister join me in thanking housing associations across the country for all the great work they do on social housing, and in particular Rooftop Housing in my constituency, which has built 850 homes in the last six years, including substantial housing for elderly people and those with supportive care needs?
