Space Industry Bill [Lords] (15 Jan 2018)

Matt Warman: I shall speak briefly in support of the Bill. In my constituency, we talk about space far more than people might think. That is not because there is a lot of it in the open fenland and marsh country, but because, as one might expect, we talk about foreign aid an awful lot, and the question that always arises is why we give money to certain countries. They have space programmes. That is, in a...

Policing (19 Dec 2017)

Matt Warman: Lincolnshire’s police and crime commissioner tells me that he considers the precept changes to be very good news, so I welcome the Minister’s statement. Can he confirm that the unique challenges faced by large, rural and sparsely populated counties, such as Lincolnshire, will be addressed by additional money for digital transformation?

Local Government Finance Settlement (19 Dec 2017)

Matt Warman: Deprivation is by no means limited to urban areas, and I know that that is why the Secretary of State has listened to the powerful fair funding case made by Lincolnshire County Council. I welcome the fact that the business rates pilot is coming to the county, but will my right hon. Friend tell us how else such big, sparsely populated counties will be helped by the settlement? What more money...

European Council (18 Dec 2017)

Matt Warman: For the Prime Minister’s negotiations to be meaningful, they must of course include considering the possibility of a no-deal scenario, but does she agree with me that the pragmatism shown by both sides last week demonstrates that such an outcome is now a considerably less likely?

King’S College Hospital Foundation Trust (12 Dec 2017)

Matt Warman: Is not the reality that any politically motivated resignation such as this leaves the NHS, the hardworking staff and the patients all worse off?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (12 Dec 2017)

Matt Warman: A recent report from Intel identified £2 trillion of global opportunities in artificial intelligence and driverless cars. Will the Minister outline what steps the Government are taking to invest in the skills that Britain will need to capitalise on that huge opportunity?

Online Hate Speech (30 Nov 2017)

Matt Warman: In a cynical attempt to harness the Brexit vote in my constituency, the English Defence League last year sought to organise a far-right march. Just nine people showed up, but that is nine people too many. Although the abhorrent views of the EDL and Britain First do not represent the mainstream in this country, does the Home Secretary agree that there is still work to do to disabuse people of...

State Pension Age: Women: EU Nationals (29 Nov 2017)

Matt Warman: It is with some sadness that I rise to speak in this debate, because my constituency has received proportionally more migrants from eastern Europe than anywhere else in the country. Of all places, Boston and Skegness knows the value that people from Poland, Latvia, Lithuania and elsewhere bring to our local economy. Today we have heard a great deal about surgeries being flooded with people...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (29 Nov 2017)

Matt Warman: This week one of Labour’s last two remaining councillors in Boston crossed the floor to join the Conservative party. He said that he did not want to see the country go back to 1973. Will the First Secretary join me in welcoming this new member to the Conservative party, and does he agree that an open, optimistic Britain deserves better than reheated Marxism and Labour’s bankrupt...

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Electoral Fraud (22 Nov 2017)

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Topical Questions (22 Nov 2017)

Matt Warman: As we leave the European Union, public appointments will become more important than ever. What are the Government doing to make sure that we get a greater diversity of people appointed to public posts, especially from outside the south-east?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (14 Nov 2017)

Matt Warman: Recruitment and retention is just one reason why United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust is currently going through the special measures process. Will the Secretary of State join me in paying tribute to the staff in Lincolnshire, and does he agree that part of the challenge that the trust faces on recruitment and retention will be solved by the establishment of a medical school in Lincolnshire?

Exiting the Eu: Sectoral Analysis (7 Nov 2017)

Matt Warman: My constituents, more than most, want the Government to get on with delivering Brexit. They told me that they were saddened that this House had voted as it did because it does not help our negotiating position. What they would like this House and the Minister’s Department officials to get on with doing is negotiating the best possible deal rather than spending time facilitating the...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Electric and Autonomous Vehicles (7 Nov 2017)

Matt Warman: What steps he has taken to support the development of electric and autonomous vehicles.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Electric and Autonomous Vehicles (7 Nov 2017)

Matt Warman: Whether lorries or tractors, it is in rural areas where autonomous vehicles have the potential to make a particularly profound impact. Will my right hon. Friend assure me that the research that he is funding will look in particular at rural areas rather than simply focusing on our very well connected cities?

Grenfell Recovery Taskforce (6 Nov 2017)

Matt Warman: Sir Martin Moore-Bick asked the Government to look at wider social housing issues, and I am pleased that the Government accepted that recommendation. To build on his answer to the hon. Member for Dewsbury (Paula Sherriff), will the Secretary of State tell us a little more about what the Government are doing to identify problems with social housing, which potentially go far wider than the...

Paradise Papers (6 Nov 2017)

Matt Warman: In a world of increasingly global businesses, it is the reality—whether the Labour party likes it or not—that we have to tackle this issue on a global scale. Is that not why it was right that David Cameron used the G7 as a crucial method to tackle it and why it is right that we continue to take an international approach?
