European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Saving for rights etc. under section 2(1) of the ECA (16 Jan 2018)

Peter Kyle: Those of us who are gay, who went to school in the 1980s and who remember very well the impact of section 28 might baulk at the idea that every Government have given rights and not taken them away. Does my hon. Friend agree that that is a fundamental reason why we need to share and stay within the European Union and the fundamental rights system it provides?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (16 Jan 2018)

Peter Kyle: Last night, the chief executive of Airbus said that every Brexit scenario that is currently on the table will weaken British industry. Is the Chancellor listening?

NHS Winter Crisis (10 Jan 2018)

Peter Kyle: Will my hon. Friend give way?

NHS Winter Crisis (10 Jan 2018)

Peter Kyle: My hon. Friend is being very generous in giving way. Down in Sussex, patient transport was privatised and given to a company called Coperforma. Seven months after the contract was awarded, the company was stripped of it for its appalling practices and for completely underperforming in every way, shape and form. It now transpires that Coperforma has been given more money for seven months than...

Shoreham Air Show Crash: Access to Justice — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (9 Jan 2018)

Peter Kyle: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on securing the debate. As a neighbouring MP and someone who also lost a constituent in this air show crash, may I thank him for the open-hearted and spirited way in which he worked in collaboration with me during that gruesome period? Many of the victims of this air crash were the highest earners of the families from which they were taken, which means that...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Peter Kyle: We are debating what was said to the electorate during that period, but none of us are talking about what the electorate are thinking now. That is the most important thing. Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that, as we enter the most crucial part of this stage of the negotiations, the Government should put far more energy into understanding what the public actually think and aspire to for...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Peter Kyle: Is it not interesting that when the public were consulted in a people’s assembly, with a representative sample of leavers and remainers, the conclusion they came to was that they wanted to remain in the single market, but to extend all the freedoms we already have to limit freedom of movement? Does my hon. Friend not agree that we need to listen more to the public and involve them more?

Harassment in Public Life (18 Dec 2017)

Peter Kyle: The most common question I get asked by young people these days is, “How do you put up with all the abuse?” I know the Home Secretary will find that as heartbreaking as I do. Young people know that a corruption has entered our politics, whereby people now believe that if somebody honestly disagrees with them they are unprincipled. As soon as we accept the principle that somebody...

Grenfell Tower and Building Safety (18 Dec 2017)

Peter Kyle: It was very good to hear the Secretary of State say in his statement that he was encouraging people to do the right thing and to hold to account those who try to cut corners. In order to do that, people need information. Does he agree with the call of my right hon. Friend the Member for Wentworth and Dearne (John Healey) that all fire test information needs to be made public from now on?

European Council (18 Dec 2017)

Peter Kyle: The Prime Minister has spent inordinate amounts of time reconciling the divisions within her own Cabinet, but no time whatsoever doing so for the public. Now that we are entering the most difficult part of these negotiations, what will she do specifically not only to deliver on the aspirations and excitement of those who voted leave, but to take into account the anxieties of people who voted...

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

Peter Kyle: The steel industry met the criteria for a sectoral deal, it wanted one and applied for one, but it did not get one. Will the Secretary of State please explain why?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Withdrawal Agreement Payment to the European Union (6 Dec 2017)

Peter Kyle: To clarify a point, the 2015 Labour manifesto opposed a referendum; Labour was led then by my right hon. Friend the Member for Doncaster North (Edward Miliband). Two weeks after the general election, we were whipped to vote for the piece of legislation that enabled that, and the Labour party did so. Did my hon. Friend think that we were wrong because it was not in our manifesto? We opposed a...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Withdrawal Agreement Payment to the European Union (6 Dec 2017)

Peter Kyle: Does my hon. Friend agree that, considering our current trajectory under this Government, the other big black hole in the Red Book is how much we will have to pay for access to the single market after we leave?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Withdrawal Agreement Payment to the European Union (6 Dec 2017)

Peter Kyle: The right hon. Gentleman has sparked a highly relevant debate. The referendum asked whether we should leave or not. What we are debating in the Bill is how we leave. We have learned that the process is a series of decisions; there is not one way to leave the EU. We need to keep every option open, not shut doors as this Government are doing, so that if the public mood shifts, as it might well...

EU Exit Negotiations (5 Dec 2017)

Peter Kyle: The choices the Secretary of State has made have led him into a cul-de-sac where he now has to make a choice between honouring the spirit of the Good Friday agreement or pleasing the right wingers on his own side and the DUP. Which choice is he going to make?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Victims and Witnesses: Court Experience (5 Dec 2017)

Peter Kyle: Earlier this year, the Secretary of State generously agreed to amend the Courts legislation and introduce primary legislation to outlaw the cross-examination of victims by domestic abuse perpetrators. The principle of using primary legislation to tackle the matter has been agreed. When will he introduce primary legislation to tackle the issue?

Social Mobility Commission: Points of Order (4 Dec 2017)

Peter Kyle: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. After incessant briefing for the past two days that the Prime Minister and the Government were close to a deal, it has emerged in the past few seconds that she is going to come home empty-handed, with no deal. This shambles puts into perspective the constitutional settlement for our country, so can we expect her to make a statement tomorrow?

Social Mobility Commission (4 Dec 2017)

Peter Kyle: Thank you, Mr Speaker—that is an introduction I will struggle to live up to. Alan Milburn has said that he resigned because of dysfunction in the Government and the lack of implementation. The Minister’s response gives the impression that he resigned because all the work was already done. Once again, can the Minister give us a clear explanation: why did the board resign, from his...

Prime Minister: Engagements (22 Nov 2017)

Peter Kyle: Every Prime Minister since 1946 has successfully appointed a British judge to the International Court of Justice. Why hasn’t she?

Universal Credit Roll-Out (16 Nov 2017)

Peter Kyle: Does the hon. Gentleman remember the early days of when universal credit was first mooted? At that time, the Labour party was supportive of the concept, but said that universal credit needed to be rolled out over a period longer than one Parliament, and that much more detailed piloting would be needed to get the system right. Those are the things that have gone wrong, and they are...
