Exiting the European Union: Economic and Social Rights (19 Jul 2018)

Marcus Fysh: My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State referred earlier to the mooted common rulebook as very narrow, but when we look at what is necessary for free circulation, it is actually extremely wide. I am concerned that the parliamentary lock in the White Paper is actually unworkable, because there will be the sword of Damocles of a hard border in Ireland should we derogate from any of it. Does...

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill: EU VAT area and pre-commencement requirements (16 Jul 2018)

Marcus Fysh: The hon. Lady makes an important point about the value of trade defences in our armoury. Would she consider supporting new clause 36, which is essential if the UK is to be able to operate its own trade defence policy, because if the EU is not collecting our tariffs for us at our border, there will potentially be nothing we can do about that?

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill: EU VAT area and pre-commencement requirements (16 Jul 2018)

Marcus Fysh: Will the right hon. Lady give some consideration to supporting our new clause 36, which will become a key piece of legislation if the UK is to operate proper trade defences? She mentioned manufacturing, and I note that many Labour Members have constituencies where workers may depend on the UK’s having good trade defences. Under the facilitated customs arrangement, that would not be...

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill: EU VAT area and pre-commencement requirements (16 Jul 2018)

Marcus Fysh: Will the right hon. Lady give way?

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

Marcus Fysh: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Crewe and Nantwich (Laura Smith), who made some interesting points about adult social care. I have similar issues in my constituency, where one of the main care providers increasingly sees private clients effectively subsidising local authority provision. The gap between the costs has been getting wider and wider. The concern of many of my...

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

Marcus Fysh: The hon. Lady makes a good point. It is about trying to understand when the effects will show up. Often what we have to do in the meantime is to run two parallel systems, in order to get one up and running, and that can be challenging. I welcome the extra money for healthcare but, as I said on Wednesday, we really should not allow it to crowd out other types of spending, particularly local...

Prime Minister: Engagements (27 Jun 2018)

Marcus Fysh: In matters relating to my constituency, education, defence and local government are all in need of more funding. Can the Prime Minister assure me that the very welcome allocation of more money to the NHS does not crowd everything else out?

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

Marcus Fysh: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Dundee East (Stewart Hosie), and a pleasure to have heard a free trade speech from the Opposition Benches. I welcome my hon. Friend the Minister. Let me also praise my right hon. Friend the Member for Chelsea and Fulham (Greg Hands) for his sterling work on these issues in the Department, and for his engagement with the various Committees of...

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

Marcus Fysh: The hon. Gentleman has made a good point. I shall come on to those matters—by which, as he knows, I am exercised—a little later. I will say, however, that we want a good relationship with the European Union. The fact that we are leaving it does not mean that we should not have that relationship and nurture it. The Minister rightly pointed out that the Japan deal is an “EU...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: T-levels (25 Jun 2018)

Marcus Fysh: What progress his Department has made on the introduction of T-levels.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: T-levels (25 Jun 2018)

Marcus Fysh: Why, with its huge success in piloting industry work placements and its leadership of best practice in the area, has Yeovil College been left out of the T-level pilots, and how can the Secretary of State help to make up for its and my disappointment?

Somerset County Council: Unitary Status — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (22 May 2018)

Marcus Fysh: My hon. Friend is making an interesting speech about the history of local government in Somerset. Does he not think, though, that to deal with the overhang of debt that the Liberal Democrats left the county with in 2009, it has been necessary to take a raft of difficult decisions? Is it not worth at least exploring ways of saving the taxpayers money? This proposal might be a solution, but...

Leaving the Eu: Customs (16 May 2018)

Marcus Fysh: The Minister for the Cabinet Office put very well the argument about why we need to keep Cabinet confidentiality. It is an essential part of what the Government of the UK should be doing whenever they are negotiating a treaty or any international matters of substance. Quite frankly, it is an absurd idea that this House should be making them look over their shoulder at every single step and...

Leaving the Eu: Customs (16 May 2018)

Marcus Fysh: Obviously, I accept that position, but may I just say that that is not what it says in Erskine May? [Hon. Members: “Oh!”] I am just reflecting—

Leaving the Eu: Customs (16 May 2018)

Marcus Fysh: Indeed I am not. I would never do that. What I am saying is that there is a provision in Erskine May for Parliament to seek an order of the House to release certain documents. I accept that this may be a grey area—an evolving area—of parliamentary procedure. None the less, I genuinely think that it goes to the heart of what the Opposition are trying to do. They are simply trying...

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Marcus Fysh: In her Mansion House speech, the Prime Minister set out five tests for the EU negotiations and the agreement that we will reach through them. The first test was the need to respect the referendum result and the desire of the people expressed through that referendum to take back control. The customs union plan entirely gives up control to the EU, and the free circulation of goods would also...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Departmental Funding (23 Apr 2018)

Marcus Fysh: What recent discussions he has had with the Chancellor of the Exchequer on future funding for his Department.
