Money Laundering (19 Mar 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: These crimes can be horrendously complex. Can we be confident that the SFO, the NCA and other bodies have the skills and resources to investigate them properly?

Unpaid Trial Work Periods (Prohibition) Bill (16 Mar 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Unpaid Trial Work Periods (Prohibition) Bill (16 Mar 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: Not any more, I am afraid. I thank the hon. Gentleman for giving way. He is making some really important points. I am glad he recognises that the hospitality and leisure industry, which employs about 3 million people in the UK, has good and bad practices, but they are generally good. That is important to recognise. First, I think we are hearing a clear message from this House to the Minister...

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

Nigel Huddleston: My hon. Friend is making an important point that has not been much debated today. It is probably inappropriate in this debate to talk about capacity constraints—do we have enough housing, and so on—when accepting refugees into this country, but one thing to which there seems to be no limit on capacity is the willingness of our residents and constituents to welcome refugees. We are...

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

Nigel Huddleston: The hon. Gentleman is making many valid points. Like everybody in this House, I have been lobbied on this Bill by constituents—both for and against. It is important that we keep the right tone here; accusing people of an “empathy bypass” because they have a different understanding or different belief about the best way of helping people is probably something we can avoid in...

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (15 Mar 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: May I applaud the Government’s practical and sensible decision regarding their intention to remain part of the European Aviation Safety Agency after Brexit? Can we expect similar sensible and practical discussions around open skies?

Salisbury Incident: Further Update (14 Mar 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: This attack could have been so much worse. What if a group of schoolchildren playing in the park had been the first to approach the victims after they collapsed? Does the Prime Minister share my disgust that the perpetrators of this crime must have known that?

Hate Crime (12 Mar 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: What practical support is being provided to help the targets and victims of hate crime?

Salisbury Incident (8 Mar 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: I agree we should be cautious about attributing guilt at this stage, but does the Home Secretary share my and my constituents’ anger about the cruel nature of this crime, which could so easily have resulted in considerably greater collateral damage, and will she therefore assure me and my constituents that eventually the full force of the law will be brought down upon the perpetrators?

Business of the House (8 Mar 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: I still hear way too many stories from constituents who are in battle with landlords or house builders about the condition of their homes. May we have a debate on the review of the housing complaints system?

Mental Health Services: Children and Young People (8 Mar 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: I am sure that both sides of the House will welcome the commitment to 21,000 more personnel in mental health service provision by 2021, but can the Minister assure me that this will lead to more children accessing mental health services within the four-week target period?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Leaving the EU: Economic Viability of Farming (8 Mar 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: I am proud that Vale of Evesham asparagus has been granted protected geographical indication status by the EU, which will help to boost its brand recognition and sales. Will PGI status still be recognised post Brexit?

European Union Citizenship (7 Mar 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: My hon. Friend is clearly articulating what the aims and the goals of the Government are. A minute ago, he mentioned reciprocation. Is it not the case that that is at the core of all this? We are asking not for special rights for EU citizens, or indeed for UK citizens, but for a fair and reasonable exit process from the EU that retains reciprocal rights.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (27 Feb 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: Last week in the Chamber, we yet again heard an Opposition MP complain that they believed they should personally be paying far more tax. Will the Minister confirm the mechanism by which anybody can currently do exactly that voluntarily?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (26 Feb 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: Is the Home Office confident that it and its agencies can compete with the private sector, and recruit and retain people with the key digital and cyber skills that we need?

PRAYERS - [Mr Speaker in the Chair] : Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill — [Mr Speaker in the Chair] (23 Feb 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: It is an honour to follow the hon. Member for Sunderland Central (Julie Elliott). We have all learned that her daughter Rebecca is just as strong and brave as her mother. I congratulate the hon. Member for Coventry North West (Mr Robinson) on bringing the Bill to the House and thank him for the compassionate and positive tone he has taken and for the collaborative way he is working across...

PRAYERS - [Mr Speaker in the Chair] : Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill — [Mr Speaker in the Chair] (23 Feb 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: My hon. Friend makes a perfectly valid point that I am sure will be raised again in this debate, but we are talking about a matter of life and death. All the surveys show the large number of people willing to support organ donation in principle, so it is alarming that the number who are actually on the organ donation list is relatively low, despite the fact that it takes literally two...

PRAYERS - [Mr Speaker in the Chair] : Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill — [Mr Speaker in the Chair] (23 Feb 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: There is indeed, because there is still a long way to go and people are still dying because they are not getting the donations or transplants that they need. There absolutely is a need to move forward with the Bill. Let us look at the alternative systems around the world. The example of Spain is often mentioned. We are looking at the system there as some kind of model, although perhaps not an...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Review (21 Feb 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: My hon. Friend is making an important point. Conservative Members do not just obsess about some punitive rate for party-political purposes. The key is to grow the economy and maximise the tax take, so that we can then spend our money on public services. It is important to recognise the increased revenues from tax overall, rather than being obsessed with a particular rate.

Leaving the EU: No-deal Alternatives — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (21 Feb 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: On the question of a meaningful vote, does my hon. Friend agree that we may as well at least discuss the EEA option? The political reality is that, at either the 2022 or the 2027 general election, one of the major political parties is highly likely to adopt it as a potential option, depending on how the scenario plays out in terms of the Brexit deal. Why not have that discussion now, because...
