Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (15 Nov 2017)

Michael Tomlinson: We are leaving the European Union, and as the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill goes through the House of Commons, does the Prime Minister agree with me that it is part of our job as Members of Parliament—some may even say it is our duty as Members of Parliament—to scrutinise that legislation; to debate considered amendments that seek to improve the Bill, and that are constructive...

EU Exit Negotiations (13 Nov 2017)

Michael Tomlinson: I warmly welcome the Secretary of State’s statement, especially his confirmation from the Dispatch Box that there will be a separate agreement and implementation Bill. Does he agree with me on two points: first, that any amendment to that effect in the Committee stage of the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill, which starts tomorrow, will be unnecessary; and, secondly, that this will...

Counter-Daesh Update (7 Nov 2017)

Michael Tomlinson: On the last occasion that the House was updated on the counter-Daesh campaign, it was confirmed from the Dispatch Box that there were zero reported civilian casualties as a result of the United Kingdom’s actions in Syria and Iraq. Will the Secretary of State update the House on whether that figure is still as low? In doing so, will he join me in commending the RAF for carrying out so...

Exiting the Eu: Sectoral Analysis (7 Nov 2017)

Michael Tomlinson: When these documents are released as a result of the Opposition day motion, a cheap asset will have been handed to our negotiating partners within the EU. When the Minister implements the motion of this House, will he take as much time as is necessary to ensure that at least he and the Secretary of State continue to act in the national interest?

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Revenue and Customs: Brexit (7 Nov 2017)

European Economic Area: Uk Membership (6 Nov 2017)

Michael Tomlinson: I am following my right hon. Friend’s argument carefully. Does he agree with my earlier point that, in that situation, we would effectively be rule takers without having the opportunity to make the rules or to contribute in the way that we do at the moment?

European Economic Area: Uk Membership (6 Nov 2017)

Michael Tomlinson: I always enjoy listening to the hon. Gentleman’s arguments and I have the pleasure of serving on the European Scrutiny Committee with him. Is not one difficulty with his argument that, under this model, we would have to follow all the rules—the rules of the single market and, as he says, the rules of freedom of movement—without having a say or an input into how those rules...

Paradise Papers (6 Nov 2017)

Michael Tomlinson: The Minister has confirmed that we have one of the lowest tax gaps in the world, yet the Labour party still complains. How does today’s position compare to the one we inherited in 2010?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (6 Nov 2017)

Michael Tomlinson: What steps are being taken to include marriage in relationships education?

Representation of the People (Young People’S Enfranchisement and Education) Bill (3 Nov 2017)

Michael Tomlinson: My hon. Friend is making a cool, calm and logical speech. It is a shame that Opposition Members are not affording him the courtesy of a fair hearing. Did he, like me, read the article by our hon. Friend the Member for Colchester (Will Quince), who spotted some inherent contradictions from the Opposition? The Labour party raised the age limit from 16 to 18 for all sorts of things—some...

Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill (3 Nov 2017)

Michael Tomlinson: May I add my voice to my hon. Friend’s in congratulating the promoter of the Bill on not just bringing it to the House but gathering a consensus? Does she, like me, welcome the fact that he is willing to look at constructive suggestions in Committee to ensure the Bill is in a proper and fit state?

Exiting the European Union: Workers’ Rights (2 Nov 2017)

Michael Tomlinson: Is this question not somewhat ironic, coming from the Labour party that voted against the withdrawal Bill on Second Reading—the very Bill that will protect workers’ rights? We do not need to be in the EU to protect workers’ rights; we pass legislation in this place to protect those rights, and will continue to do so.

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (2 Nov 2017)

Michael Tomlinson: While aiming for an open free-trade arrangement with the EU, is it not simply sensible planning to prepare also for a no-deal scenario?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Prison Governors (31 Oct 2017)

Michael Tomlinson: I warmly welcome the commitment of the Secretary of State and the Prisons Minister to implementing the Farmer review in full. They have acknowledged the important link between family ties and rehabilitation. Now that prison governors are being further empowered, what more can be done to ensure that that is rolled out across the whole prison estate?
