Esa Underpayments: Business of the House (19 Jul 2018)

Simon Hoare: On a point of order, Mr Speaker.

Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill: Future Relationship Between the UK and the EU (18 Jul 2018)

Simon Hoare: I hear what my hon. Friend says, but is it not the case that, whenever we enter into a free trade agreement with another country, we will abide by the rules and regulations that it seeks to apply to imported goods? The fact that we choose to do so is our choice, as made either by the Executive or by Parliament. Whether we do a free trade agreement with the EU, New Zealand or Japan is...

Simon Hoare: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill: Future Relationship Between the UK and the EU (18 Jul 2018)

Simon Hoare: I am listening with great attention to what the right hon. and learned Gentleman has to say. I take the point that we are talking about the future of our nation. Is it not time, therefore, to build on this issue, as this House sculpts how this country looks as and when we leave the EU, and time for us to pull together, at the pragmatic centre ground of this House, to shape and sculpt the sort...

Electoral Commission Investigation: Vote Leave (17 Jul 2018)

Simon Hoare: This is undoubtedly a very shoddy affair. In hindsight and on reflection, the referendum campaign—on either side of the argument—was not our finest hour in democratic activity. Would the Minister take the point about the reporting of expenditure in real time, as was mentioned by the hon. Member for Brighton, Pavilion (Caroline Lucas)? Reporting after the event leads to the sort...

Simon Hoare: Will my hon. Friend give way?

The Secretary of State’S Handling of Universal Credit (11 Jul 2018)

Simon Hoare: It is a pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for East Ham (Stephen Timms), who speaks with great experience on these matters. One of the burning questions this afternoon is whether the Labour party’s official position is to continue to support the principle of universal credit. Every time that Labour has the opportunity to endorse universal credit, it dodges doing that and seeks to...

The Secretary of State’S Handling of Universal Credit (11 Jul 2018)

Simon Hoare: Thank you for that. Let me quote from a constituent of mine: “I went in great fear of UC. I thought it would be too difficult and cruel. I thought things would be made hard for me and my family. But I applied. It was easy and far simpler than I thought.” He said that the only mistake he made was that he had listened to Labour and that it was Labour that had made him afraid of the...

The Secretary of State’S Handling of Universal Credit (11 Jul 2018)

Simon Hoare: I am very grateful to my right hon. Friend. That underscores the approach that she has outlined of listening and engaging. In that spirit, I urge her and her Department to issue—this may not be the right phraseology—some form of national guidance to all CAB offices and to all Members across the House on what the role of the CAB is. I take my hat off to them; I have two CAB offices...

The Secretary of State’S Handling of Universal Credit (11 Jul 2018)

Simon Hoare: I have listened to what the hon. Lady has said. My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State had the courtesy to come to the House to apologise. Mr Speaker accepted that apology. Has the Labour Front-Bench team the good grace to accept it, too?

The Secretary of State’S Handling of Universal Credit (11 Jul 2018)

Simon Hoare: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. Is it not a custom in this place, out of common courtesy, that when one hon. Member references another—either by name or by constituency—and that Member then seeks to intervene, the request is usually acceded to?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Jul 2018)

Simon Hoare: While we enjoy the summer weather, it does, of course, present challenges to our farming community. Will my right hon. Friend join the National Farmers Union and me in calling for people not to use sky lanterns, preferably ever, but certainly not during such a tinder-dry harvest? Our food producers deserve our support.

Points of Order (5 Jul 2018)

Simon Hoare: On a point of order, Mr Speaker.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Transport Infrastructure (5 Jul 2018)

Simon Hoare: I urge my right hon. Friend to look favourably upon applications for investment in smaller schemes on de-trunked roads, such as the A350 and the C13 in my constituency. They are vital arteries for growing the economy in Dorset and, indeed, the wider south-west.

Opposition Day - [15TH Allotted Day, 1ST Part]Opposition Day: Claim of Right for Scotland (4 Jul 2018)

Simon Hoare: I am listening to the debate as a fellow Celt who represents an English seat. My hon. Friend has mentioned the word “respect”. I am intervening on his speech, but I could have intervened on anyone’s. We see rampant nationalism and nastiness all over Europe and elsewhere. Does my hon. Friend agree that the best advertisement for this place, and for democracy, is for all of...

Supply and Appropriation (Main Estimates) (No. 2) Bill: Requirement to amend definition of ivory (4 Jul 2018)

Simon Hoare: What capacity is there within DEFRA post conference—I appreciate it is currently fantastically busy—if other countries want to dip into the collective expertise of both Ministers and officials on how to deliver and devise this sort of legislation? Who will be available? We should be a centre of excellence and a resource for information and knowledge.
