Surgical Mesh: Cancer Treatment (19 Apr 2018)

Peter Kyle: Thank you, Mr Speaker, for being present in the Chamber today. I know that you take the Chair most Thursdays, but I choose to interpret your presence today as a testament to Tessa. He is not in his place at the moment, but it is worth recognising that the Secretary of State was present not just during today’s debate but in the debate in the Lords. That was recognised by many of us and...

Surgical Mesh: Cancer Treatment (19 Apr 2018)

Peter Kyle: Of course I do. My hon. Friend makes an important point. Tessa, too, has been linking with many organisations, bringing them together and focusing attention on them but, just because that is so typically Tessa, it does not make it any less remarkable. For brain cancer to be tackled, three things must happen. We need to sort out funding, innovation and the use of data, and I will speak about...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Rail Fares (19 Apr 2018)

Peter Kyle: I am grateful for the Minister’s letter of this week, saying that his Department is taking on extra resource to simplify the fare structure on the Brighton main line. Will he reassure passengers in the area that that simplification will involve the rounding down of fares, not just rounding up? Will he also tell passengers when they can expect the review to complete?

Fishing: East Anglia: Austerity: Life Expectancy (18 Apr 2018)

Peter Kyle: Does my hon. Friend agree that what is responsible for this situation is not just the restraint in spending, but the way in which spending restraint and austerity have played out on the frontline? The issue is the withdrawal of mental health services for people living at home. It is the teaching assistants who have all but been removed. In particular, it is the impact on services that help...

Laser Misuse (Vehicles) Bill [Lords] (Programme): Industrial Strategy (18 Apr 2018)

Peter Kyle: My hon. Friend rightly points to the failures around the collapse of Carillion, which was a disaster for the many thousands of people who worked for it. The other organisations that failed were the regulators, so does she agree that we need a root-and-branch think about how we regulate the private sector, particularly when organisations are delivering public services at vast cost to the...

Syria (16 Apr 2018)

Peter Kyle: The Prime Minister acted entirely appropriately. If these chemical weapons became normalised, not only would they be used against civilians in the future, but the time would surely come when our own servicemen and women would go into action for our country and they would be used against them too. That would be unforgivable. However, military action is not a replacement for diplomacy. Does the...

Social Mobility and the Economy — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (28 Mar 2018)

Peter Kyle: There are a lot of things I would like to comment on, but the Minister mentions the economy; is it not true that we live in a world where if someone is born into a family that has assets, they are almost certain to succeed in life, but if they are talent-rich but asset-poor they are not? What will the Minister do to restructure the economy so that those born into families who do not own...

Social Mobility and the Economy — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (28 Mar 2018)

Peter Kyle: This is an important debate and having a former Secretary of State for Education here is a real treat for us. At the moment, the Government fund young people who go to university to the tune of about £10,500. For people who go to a further education college, the funding is about half that. For young people who get an apprenticeship, it is about £1,500 on average. For people who fall...

Rail Announcement (27 Mar 2018)

Peter Kyle: In the previous Parliament, the Department was so focused on HS2 that it took its eye off the real challenge facing our country: getting people to and from work in the south-east of England. Will the Secretary of State guarantee that he will not make the same mistake again and that the Southern rail fiasco will never be repeated?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Oecd (27 Mar 2018)

Peter Kyle: The Minister will note that Hove is also middle class—it used to vote Tory, too. In its last economic survey, the OECD said: “In case Brexit gets reversed by political decision…the positive impact on growth would be significant.” Does not that show that the Government’s current Brexit policy is not driving us closer to the OECD but driving us apart?

Spring Statement (13 Mar 2018)

Peter Kyle: I am sure the Chancellor will agree that it is not talking down the economy to report in this place the real lived experiences of the people we represent, the majority of whom will not see real average wage incomes exceeding the pre-crash levels until 2022. Does he not agree that all the measures announced today and the rhetoric will not make a difference to those who need it most until their...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Electric and Autonomous Vehicles (13 Mar 2018)

Peter Kyle: At yesterday’s Select Committee visit, mentioned by the hon. Member for Rugby (Mark Pawsey), it became very apparent that the market for electric vehicles is maturing at a much faster rate than many people realise. Is it possible that the ambition of the sector itself is outstripping the ambition of the Government, and should the 2040 target not be brought forward, perhaps even by a decade?

Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill (6 Mar 2018)

Peter Kyle: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill (6 Mar 2018)

Peter Kyle: For the time being.

Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill (6 Mar 2018)

Peter Kyle: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

Committees: DMB Solutions: Liquidation (5 Mar 2018)

Peter Kyle: I am pleased to hear that the Minister reads the Brighton and Hove Argus. He has mentioned several of the agencies that people can turn to in these situations, but is it not the case that the landscape of regulation is very complicated? The constituents that we have been describing today simply do not think that any one agency has a grip on situations such as these.

Committees: DMB Solutions: Liquidation (5 Mar 2018)

Peter Kyle: The hon. Lady is making a powerful point. To add to her catalogue of constituents, I can speak of those who have turned to me, such as Alison, who gave £30,000 to this company six days before it went bust. It knew it would not fulfil the order, yet it took £30,000 from somebody—in the full knowledge that it would not complete the work. Does the hon. Lady not think that in...

Uk/EU Future Economic Partnership (5 Mar 2018)

Peter Kyle: The European Union has published the draft text of its legal stance of its negotiating position. The Prime Minister makes a speech, which does give more detail, but is still full of ambiguity. When will she publish the legal text of her negotiating stance?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (1 Mar 2018)

Peter Kyle: Thank you so much, Mr Speaker. There is one set of tracks and one franchise operator between London and Brighton, but there are three separate pricing structures. I urge the Secretary of State and the Rail Minister to think about implementing the Gibb recommendation to lower the pricing to the lowest possible one—the Thameslink one—for a two-year period. That could be done with no...

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?
