Huw Merriman: I have a very different view from the hon. Member for Brighton, Pavilion (Caroline Lucas), my near neighbour in Sussex, on this Bill. I wish to focus on its positives regarding not just perpetrators of violence, but victims. I am amazed that any Opposition party would vote against the Bill on Second Reading. They should rather engage with making it better if they feel that there is more road...

Income Tax (Charge) (3 Mar 2021)

Huw Merriman: In welcoming today’s Budget, I wish to focus on three themes. The first is supporting restart. The Chancellor is right to ensure that the workforce and businesses are supported as we open up our economy once again. The continuation of furlough, help for the self-employed, business rate relief and extending temporary VAT reduction will give business the confidence to reopen and plough on. We...

Covid Security at UK Borders (1 Feb 2021)

Huw Merriman: It is a pleasure to speak in this debate. I am very disappointed with the Labour Front-Bench position on blanket hotel quarantine.

Huw Merriman: I thank the Home Secretary for her statement. I welcome the evidenced and nuance-based approach that she has outlined today, as opposed to the blanket approach that seems to be advocated by the shadow Foreign Secretary, which I believe would lead to impacts on trade and those who need essential business, as well as on our ability to hotel quarantine so many people. I know that the hon....

Educational Settings: Reopening (26 Jan 2021)

Huw Merriman: I thank all the teachers who continue to work so hard to teach our young pupils.

Surely, by that time the risks from school attendance will be lower than they were last autumn, when the school gates were open to all.
