Julian Knight: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what steps he is taking to reduce food waste; and if he will make a statement.

Un International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (8 Apr 2019)

Julian Knight: I too pay tribute to the hon. Member for Warrington South (Faisal Rashid), who made a powerful speech. I congratulate him on securing this vital debate to mark the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. I know it was on 1 March—we have had to wait—but the debate is none the less worth while. The hon. Gentleman mentioned his own welcoming town. I want to reflect...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee (4 Apr 2019)

Julian Knight: rose—

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee (4 Apr 2019)

Julian Knight: I was not certain whether I was allowed to intervene, but I will ask my question now. I welcome the advent of the Sub-Committee. In terms of the scale, this is not just about Russia or potential foreign actors intervening in our Brexit-related political crisis from a UK base or from overseas; it goes on worldwide. It is not just one foreign actor, but perhaps up to 39 foreign actors. Does my...

Exiting the European Union (Consumer Protection) (2 Apr 2019)

Julian Knight: My hon. Friend is absolutely correct. There is bemusement in Brussels about why we are dealing with something that is downstream—the political declaration—rather than the withdrawal agreement itself. As he said, it is either no Brexit or the withdrawal agreement. Take your pick.

Exiting the European Union (Consumer Protection) (2 Apr 2019)

Julian Knight: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Exiting the European Union (Consumer Protection) (2 Apr 2019)

Julian Knight: My hon. Friend is being very generous in giving way. He is always conscious of the clock. Does my hon. Friend agree that paragraph 2.4 of the explanatory memorandum emphasises how disadvantaged we could be by a no-deal Brexit in terms of consumer rights? It says: “if we did not revoke the Geo-Blocking Regulation, UK traders would continue to have obligations to EU customers under the...

Exiting the European Union (Consumer Protection) (2 Apr 2019)

Julian Knight: I thank my hon. Friend again for giving way. Does this not also emphasise the fact that there are also downstream consequences? I am not talking just about the one that I emphasised from paragraph 2.4 of the explanatory memorandum. Paragraph 2.3 also states: “UK civil and commercial judgments would no longer be automatically enforced in EU member” states. Does my hon. Friend agree that...

Exiting the European Union (Consumer Protection) (2 Apr 2019)

Julian Knight: It is really interesting to focus on Northern Ireland in this. Does my hon. Friend agree that it would be perverse if there were such barriers in the way, given that many of the major internet retailers are domiciled in the Republic of Ireland for tax reasons?

Privileges (2 Apr 2019)

Julian Knight: This is the heart of the matter. The report states that many of Mr Cummings’s communications were highly inappropriate, including some outside the House. He did not do himself any favours in that respect. I personally wanted to hear what he had to say, and I honestly believe that many members of the Committee had open minds and wanted their questions to be answered. Is it not also true that...

Privileges (2 Apr 2019)

Julian Knight: Does my hon. Friend envisage a similar bar on someone for being a bankrupt, for example?

NHS Pension Scheme: Tapered Annual Allowance (2 Apr 2019)

Julian Knight: Does the Minister agree that a potential issue is that this acts as a cap on the amount of tax relief that is given out? We know that this is not progressive in terms of higher-rate tax relief on pensions. Would it not be better for us to look at a system in which we have a flat rate of 25p, 28p or 30p in the pound, rather than the higher rate? That would mitigate, or mean that we did not...

NHS Pension Scheme: Tapered Annual Allowance (2 Apr 2019)

Julian Knight: I apologise for missing the first couple of minutes of the debate. My hon. Friend is a great thinker on pensions, which is the main reason I wanted to come here today, and I want to ask him a very simple question. Does he wish to dispense with the annual allowance and lifetime limit, or does he want a special dispensation for senior NHS workers, who are quite high-income earners?
