Brexit Negotiations (11 Dec 2017)

Alberto Costa: One year ago, I said in the Chamber to my right hon. Friend that it would be inconceivable for me to vote to take away the rights of my parents or other EU nationals. Incidentally, I understand that my parents are watching proceedings closely today. I thank the Prime Minister for honouring her commitment to me, which she gave earlier this year, in return for which I gave her my full loyalty....

Government Policy on the Proceedings of the House: Gypsies and Travellers and Local Communities (9 Oct 2017)

Alberto Costa: I think that it would be fair to say that it is more than a perception.

It is a real problem, rather than a perceived one.

G20 (10 Jul 2017)

Alberto Costa: I add my welcome to the Prime Minister’s statement, particularly in respect of the additional assistance being given to Italy to tackle migration. My right hon.

Whirlpool: Product Safety System — [Ms Joan Ryan in the Chair] (26 Apr 2017)

Alberto Costa: I had important constituency business to attend to. The Minister is correct in saying that modifications at home might be the correct course of action.

However, the issue I have is that Whirlpool is not disclosing to Which? or to any of us the independent expert analysis stating that such modification makes the tumble dryer safe.

Whirlpool: Product Safety System — [Ms Joan Ryan in the Chair] (26 Apr 2017)

Alberto Costa: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on securing this debate, particularly given the experience of one of his constituents. Of course, the hon. Gentleman and I have been in correspondence on this matter over a number of months. When I first raised this issue, I did not just raise it on behalf of constituents; I myself happen to be the owner of one of the tumble dryers in question. I never...

Alberto Costa: I am grateful for the hon. Gentleman’s generosity in giving way a second time. I witnessed my own tumble dryer being fixed. Whirlpool claims that the modifications have been tested by independent experts. Which? informs me that it has not been forwarded any of the details associated with those tests. Does the hon.

Article 50 (29 Mar 2017)

Alberto Costa: In less than half an hour, the Italian Foreign Secretary will visit Parliament to sign the book of condolence and lay some flowers on behalf of the Republic of Italy.

European Council (14 Mar 2017)

Alberto Costa: I welcome the Prime Minister’s statement that politics is not a game, but those of us who have fought the SNP know that it is a game to them.
