Opposition Day — [7th Allotted Day]: Tax Credits (20 Oct 2015)

Marcus Fysh: The Conservative party is the party of jobs, opportunities and higher wages, not of borrowing for ever until we go bust. There is nothing whatever compassionate about running out of money. My right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Rushcliffe (Mr Clarke) made some very good points, not least that, given the conditions, this is a good time for employers to deal with the subsidy that has...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (14 Sep 2015)

Marcus Fysh: South Somerset District Council recently changed its approach to housing land supply, which means that despite spending £3 million on developing a local plan, it is now, after only five months of operation, likely to be considered out of date under the national planning policy framework. In situations of this kind, when serious questions need to be asked about the competence and/or...

Vehicle Speed Outside Schools (9 Sep 2015)

Marcus Fysh: The neighbourhood of Brympton, in my constituency, contains an estate where a school off Stourton Way was not provided with road safety protection and signage to slow traffic on a major and fast estate road. The Liberal Democrat council failed to address that at the time of approving the planning, and has failed to deal with it since. Will my hon. Friend please look into the issue, and tell...

Marcus Fysh: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what discussions he has had with his European counterparts to ensure that economic instability in parts of the Eurozone does not have a detrimental effect on the defence-industrial relationship between the UK and (a) Italy and (b) other EU member states.

Welfare Reform and Work Bill (20 Jul 2015)

Marcus Fysh: In 2003 the former Member for Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath was spending 0.9% of GDP on tax credits. Under his stewardship that rose to 1.9% of GDP in 2010. By 2020, this Government will have brought that down again to 1.2%, which will still be one third more than the highest levels of spending on tax credits under Labour from 1997 to 2003. I support the Government’s desire to focus our...

Welfare Reform and Work Bill (20 Jul 2015)

Marcus Fysh: We need to enable more people to get better work, and that is what my Government are focused on doing. There are other very good measures in this package, such as keeping financial support for people in difficulty with their mortgages, and ensuring that people who claim benefits now face the same choices as people in work. We need to ensure that a job always pays better than welfare and turns...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: European Union (14 Jul 2015)

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Armed Forces Covenant (13 Jul 2015)

Marcus Fysh: May I start by expressing my gratitude for the covenant funding that Somerset has received, including for the Tall Trees family centre in Ilchester, which serves the Fleet Air Arm at Yeovilton and their families? It has been brought to my attention that the criteria for fertility treatment for those serving in the Army can be more restrictive on the issue of existing children than those of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Greece (29 Jun 2015)

Marcus Fysh: In order to recover, Greece needs bigger debt relief than is currently on the table and massive pro-market structural reform and support. Neither the EU, the international institutions, nor Syriza currently offer those things. This problem presents serious ongoing economic and strategic risks for us in Europe and beyond. What are our Government doing to ensure that Greece gets what it needs?

Opposition Day — [2nd Allotted Day]: Productivity (17 Jun 2015)

Marcus Fysh: It is a pleasure to follow such excellent maiden speeches, not least that of my hon. Friend the Member for Hertsmere (Oliver Dowden), who gave us a wonderful tour of the massage parlours of his constituency. The amount of value we create in our work is key to what we can expect to earn over the long term. We heard earlier this afternoon from the Secretary of State for Education how this...

Opposition Day — [2nd Allotted Day]: Productivity (17 Jun 2015)

Marcus Fysh: That is a very good point, and we are pursuing it in the south-west. People are not just productivity statistics from a survey in a report. What suits one person will not necessarily suit another, and it is wrong to say that lower-paid work is necessarily bad or should not be respected. It is a good thing that all types of jobs are being created. Things are getting better in our country and...

Opposition Day — [2nd Allotted Day]: Productivity (17 Jun 2015)

Marcus Fysh: I thank my right hon. Friend. The A358 runs from my constituency up to the M5 and all the new jobs that will come on stream at Hinkley Point. Before the election, the Labour party planned to cancel the dualling of the road. Will my right hon. Friend confirm that that will not happen under t his Government?

Business of the House: The Economy (4 Jun 2015)

Marcus Fysh: Madam Deputy Speaker, many congratulations on your election, and I am glad to have caught your eye on this occasion, so as to make my maiden speech. I am very pleased to rise today as the first Conservative since 1951 to be newly elected to serve the people of the Yeovil constituency. Therefore, this is the first of Her Majesty’s Gracious Speeches since then to be welcomed by an...
