Will the Secretary of State please confirm and reassure the 17.4 million people who voted to leave that this Government are absolutely committed to delivering a positive Brexit for this country?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (7 Dec 2017)

Steve Double: Cornish food and drink is some of the best in the world, whether it is our amazing dairy products, such as Rodda’s cream, which is made in the constituency of the Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, or Tribute beer, which is brewed by St Austell. What conversations is the Secretary of State having with the Secretary of State for International Trade about the possible new...

If so, will he meet me to discuss how we can ensure that these new homes are affordable and accessible to local people?

Online Hate Speech (30 Nov 2017)

Steve Double: Does the Home Secretary share my astonishment at the fact that someone in the position of the President of the United States actually finds the time to trawl through Twitter looking for posts as abhorrent as the ones he has retweeted? Does she share my view that far from making America great again, his actions in retweeting those tweets reflect badly on his office and undermine the very...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Regional Expenditure (30 Nov 2017)

Steve Double: I thank the Secretary of State for his support in securing £79 million of funding for a new link road from St Austell to the A30 in my constituency, as confirmed in the Budget last week. Does he agree that this and other schemes, such as dualling the A30 and the new trains that are soon to arrive in Cornwall, clearly demonstrate this Government’s commitment to investing in...

Rail Update (29 Nov 2017)

Steve Double: I welcome the Secretary of State’s statement, this Government’s continued investment in our railways and the success that is possible only because of the partnership with the private sector. He will be aware that concerns have been raised about the break-up of the great western franchise. May I seek his reassurance that any proposals will not leave Devon and Cornwall isolated and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Air Passenger Duty: Regional Airports (28 Nov 2017)

Steve Double: What recent assessment he has made of the effect of air passenger duty on smaller regional airports.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Air Passenger Duty: Regional Airports (28 Nov 2017)

Steve Double: I thank the Minister for that reply. Many of the flights from our regional airports are internal domestic flights, on which passengers end up paying APD twice—on both legs of their journey. To support our smaller regional airports, will he consider cutting APD on internal flights by 50%, as I believe we will be able to once we leave the EU?

Marine Environment — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (14 Nov 2017)

Steve Double: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Owen. I congratulate the hon. Member for Huddersfield (Mr Sheerman) on securing this debate on an important issue. As an island nation, the UK has always had a strong connection to the seas. Although it is probably no longer true to claim that Britannia rules the waves, that connection with our maritime environment is still strong. I...

International Men’s Day — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (14 Nov 2017)

Steve Double: It is a pleasure to speak in this important debate under your chairmanship, Mr Austin. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Stafford (Jeremy Lefroy) on securing it, and am delighted that International Men’s Day is getting more recognition. It is important that we take a moment at least once a year—hopefully, perhaps, more often than that—to focus on and think about...

International Men’s Day — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (14 Nov 2017)

Steve Double: I am happy to acknowledge that. We must acknowledge that families today come in all shapes and sizes, and that single parents work incredibly hard and, in many cases, are heroes in view of the time, effort, blood, sweat and tears that they put into raising their children. However, that should not mean we do not say that more often than not the best outcome for children generally is when they...

International Men’s Day — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (14 Nov 2017)

Steve Double: I thank the hon. Gentleman, who makes a good point. As I have said, we want to be an equal society—we want equality to be at the heart of society, including in the workplace. If we are to achieve that we must seriously consider a positive approach to fathers. We need to get to the stage where employers actively seek to have father-friendly workplaces. We can achieve that, and if we do...

Taxation: Beer and Pubs — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (31 Oct 2017)

Steve Double: It is a pleasure to speak in this debate; I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Dudley South (Mike Wood) on securing it and on his excellent opening speech. I have the incredible honour and privilege of representing the constituency that contains St Austell Brewery, which since 1851 has been brewing high-quality beer in the centre of St Austell under the ownership of the same family....

Taxation: Beer and Pubs — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (31 Oct 2017)

Steve Double: I absolutely agree that cider should be considered for the relief as well. The Budget gives us an opportunity to send the clear message to the brewing industry and our pubs that we back them, we understand how essential they are and we need to take action to support them.
