Preston Park Train Services (24 Jul 2018)

Peter Kyle: Under the scheme announced by the Government, passengers travelling from Brighton receive level 1 compensation, but those leaving from Hove receive level 2 compensation. They are one stop apart, they pay exactly the same for their tickets and their season tickets, and they leave from the same city, so does the Minister not think passengers leaving from Hove station are entitled to the higher...

Preston Park Train Services (24 Jul 2018)

Peter Kyle: I am very grateful to the hon. Lady for securing this debate. I had the pleasure of speaking to one of her constituents today, who told me that the train he now regularly gets to London now is only four carriages long. The problem is not just that some trains do not stop at Preston Park, but that the ones that do stop have only four carriages, so many people cannot get on in the first place....

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Offshore Wind Sector (17 Jul 2018)

Peter Kyle: I recently visited the Rampion offshore wind farm, which is a stunning achievement, supplying enough power for a third of Sussex’s needs. Is the Secretary of State also looking at how to expand existing wind farms as well as just building new ones, particularly if it can be done in a way that does not have a visual impact from land?

Nato Summit (16 Jul 2018)

Peter Kyle: The fact remains that President Trump is a NATO-sceptic, who really responds only to individual strongmen around the world. Does the Prime Minister agree that NATO’s strength is many countries coming together and putting their collective security in the single organisation of NATO? Did she explain to Donald Trump where that strength comes from?

Govia Thameslink/Rail Electrification (3 Jul 2018)

Peter Kyle: Will the Glaister review panel be able to look into the functioning and involvement of the Minister’s Department in the setting of the new timetable, the timetabling itself, the amount of influence that the Department had in signing off the timetable and the amount of time that it took to sign it off? Will the panel be able to look into his Department as well as the franchises?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Education Settings (25 Jun 2018)

Peter Kyle: Children are not safe when they are being taught in schools where water pours through the ceiling when it rains, as happens in one school in my constituency. What is the Secretary of State doing to end the drought in capital funding for schools, particularly those like the one I have just mentioned?

Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill: Committee Stage (19 Jun 2018)

Peter Kyle: Obviously Ministers are drawn from Parliament. Does my hon. Friend agree that if the number of MPs is reduced but the number of Ministers is not, a considerable amount of power will shift from Parliament to Government? If the Government’s proposal were even-handed, the number of Ministers would be reduced so that power would not be transferred from Parliament to the Government.

Confidence in the Secretary of State for Transport (19 Jun 2018)

Peter Kyle: Will the Secretary of State give way?

Confidence in the Secretary of State for Transport (19 Jun 2018)

Peter Kyle: I am grateful to the Secretary of State for giving way. The network is incredibly complicated, with a whole range of different providers, both publicly and privately owned. Does he understand that passengers look to the Government in their role of overseeing all the different providers? We do not have an independent board, with a chair and non-executives who scrutinise, challenge and support...

NHS Long-Term Plan (18 Jun 2018)

Peter Kyle: Whether it is mentioned by the Prime Minister, the Leader of the Opposition or anyone else, there is only one fact about the Brexit dividend, and that is that it does not exist. Will the Secretary of State tell all the staff in the NHS how much of the money announced today is contingent on the Brexit dividend, so that they can bank for the future based on how much will actually materialise...

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

Peter Kyle: The single market is a law-based structure with a court acting as referee. That is from where its strength derives, and it is a strength that the EU will not weaken by giving full access to countries with divergent regulatory systems or standards. That is why I stand to support Lords amendment 51 and to associate myself with the earlier comments of my hon. Friend the Member for Wirral South...

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

Peter Kyle: I am not going to give way, because the hon. Gentleman has already spoken, but I look forward to debating him when his constituency fills up with lorries after we leave the single market. There is a lot I would like to say about the honest challenges raised by my right hon. Friend the Member for Don Valley. She spoke to us in a respectful way, and I hope that she will see that I and others...

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

Peter Kyle: Sir Martin Donnelly, the former permanent secretary at the Department for International Trade, said recently in a speech: “To provide UK business with guarantees of full and equal access to the single market without equal acceptance of EU regulatory structures would require not so much a skilled negotiating team as a fairy godmother specialised in trade law.” Is that not the...

International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (17 May 2018)

Peter Kyle: I am grateful to all Members who have spoken today. The right hon. Member for Putney (Justine Greening) summed up the objective we are trying to achieve when she said, “you cannot be at your best if you cannot be yourself.” Ensuring that people can be their best is what we are all trying to achieve in this Parliament, in the country and further afield. There was a wonderful...

International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (17 May 2018)

Peter Kyle: I beg to move, That this House has considered the international day against homophobia, transphobia and biphobia. I thank all the Members who supported the application for the debate: I am very grateful to them. I am also grateful to the right hon. Member for Arundel and South Downs (Nick Herbert), who not only supported the debate but, via the all-party parliamentary group on global...

International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (17 May 2018)

Peter Kyle: I welcome my hon. Friend’s comments and can assure the House that she is a supporter of the LGBT community in general and also of those of us as individuals who are LGBT; we certainly call her a great friend. The UK’s equality advances have been profound in recent decades. For millions of people around the world the legal rights and protections we enjoy and the journey towards the...

International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (17 May 2018)

Peter Kyle: I welcome the hon. Gentleman’s comments with an open heart; I am very grateful for them and look forward to learning more about that battalion, because I am very interested.

International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (17 May 2018)

Peter Kyle: That speaks volumes about the era we are moving on from and that which we are moving towards. Operational effectiveness is not only affected by greater diversity; I would argue that our forces remain the best, most professional and most formidable in the world, but their culture has been vastly improved. When President Trump recently tried to ban trans people from serving in the US military...

International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (17 May 2018)

Peter Kyle: That is a welcome and important intervention. We have big Prides in London and in Brighton, which is the biggest in Europe, attracting over 300,000 people, and those big celebrations have played a key role in our communities for a long time. I was on the board of Brighton and Hove Pride for three years and saw what it took to organise the event. I am well aware of its contribution to our...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee (17 May 2018)

Peter Kyle: The report says that regulatory divergence will cost jobs and investment, and will make certain medicines more difficult to obtain in this country. Is that correct?
