European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

James Cartlidge: Not for the first time, I want to talk about the EEA. Just to be absolutely clear, the EEA arrangement is distinctly inferior to the bespoke, deep trade relationship that we would like to negotiate under what I would call plan A, which is the Prime Minister’s policy. Equally, however, it is distinctly superior to WTO rules, if we fail to get a deal and we need a fall-back position. I...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

James Cartlidge: One consequence of free movement is that we restrict unskilled migration to Europe. Is it not the case that if we no longer have free movement but have a single immigration system, unskilled migration will, by definition, have to be open to people from anywhere?

Rural Crime and Public Services (6 Jun 2018)

James Cartlidge: I am unaccustomed to being called this early in a debate; it is something of an inversion of the norm. First, I want to respond to the hon. Member for Glenrothes (Peter Grant), as it takes a brass neck for the SNP Front-Bench spokesman to complain about the over-centralisation of this country when it is a system that massively benefits his constituents, and in particular his party as it does...

Rural Crime and Public Services (6 Jun 2018)

James Cartlidge: I thank my right hon. Friend for that intervention. The way I would put it—which is kind of what he is saying—is that the fall in numbers does not, of itself, drive the social behaviours that cause a change in crime, but clearly, in an ideal world, we would have more officers to deal with it. It is a question of how we respond to the situation. In terms of the primary causal...

Rural Crime and Public Services (6 Jun 2018)

James Cartlidge: I would be more than happy for them to pay more. The idea that the poorest cannot afford 50p extra a month on their precept to get a police officer—the point is that it would be a choice for the community. Many communities would not choose to have parish policing or direct policing, but it is a new option for them.

Rural Crime and Public Services (6 Jun 2018)

James Cartlidge: I will take one last intervention, Madam Deputy Speaker, because you will be pleased to know that I will then be concluding.

Rural Crime and Public Services (6 Jun 2018)

James Cartlidge: Absolutely. I will finish by saying that the local funding formula means that funding is transparent—people will know that the money will be spent in their county. We should still look at the national formula, but the model of elected police and crime commissioners being responsible for the money raised locally in a clear and transparent fashion is the right one, and we should use it to...

Rural Crime and Public Services (6 Jun 2018)

James Cartlidge: Is the hon. Lady actually saying that she would reopen those police stations?

Gaza: Un Human Rights Council Vote: Private Members’ Bills: Money Resolutions (21 May 2018)

James Cartlidge: May I assure my right hon. Friend that I have not had a single email, tweet, Facebook message, letter, or any other form of epistle calling for a money resolution on this Bill, but that I receive correspondence on an hourly basis calling for us to show prudence with taxpayers’ money?

Gaza: Un Human Rights Council Vote: Private Members’ Bills: Money Resolutions (21 May 2018)

James Cartlidge: Does the hon. Gentleman think that the public, who would be asked to find several million pounds extra, would welcome the money resolution for his Bill?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (21 May 2018)

James Cartlidge: My hon. Friend the pensions Minister is doing a lot of work on auto-enrolment for the self-employed. Has he looked specifically at the so-called worker category, in which a person might do their self-employed work for one large firm that could, with willing and regulatory help, roll them into its employee scheme?

Written Answers — Treasury: Stamp Duty Land Tax (21 May 2018)

James Cartlidge: To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, what proportion of Stamp Duty Land Tax repayments claimed were repaid within the 15 days target in the last financial year; and what the total sum outstanding beyond 15 days at the end of the previous fiscal year was.
