EU Exit Negotiations (17 Oct 2017)

Rishi Sunak: Will my right hon. Friend confirm that the Government will initiate the implementation phase only if our final relationship with our European allies has been agreed, at least in principle, so that what is meant to be a transitory state of affairs does not become a permanent bridge to nowhere?

Business of the House (14 Sep 2017)

Rishi Sunak: The Government are funding the installation of almost 600 mobile phone masts in remote areas as part of their emergency services network roll-out. It would be hugely helpful for rural constituents in areas such as mine if the Government were to allow mobile phone operators to freely locate on these towers and strongly encourage them to do so, in order to broaden mobile phone coverage in rural...

Foreign Direct Investment 2016-17 — [James Gray in the Chair] (12 Sep 2017)

Rishi Sunak: The hon. Gentleman talks about maintaining our attractiveness to international investors after we leave the EU. Does he think that Labour’s proposed 50% increase in our corporation tax rate to 26% would make it more or less likely that international investors would want to invest here in the UK?

Foreign Direct Investment 2016-17 — [James Gray in the Chair] (12 Sep 2017)

Rishi Sunak: I welcome that fact, but does the hon. Lady agree that the Scottish Government could do more to improve access to those universities? She will be aware that students from poor and disadvantaged families are twice as likely to go to university in England as they are in Scotland, and that is something the Scottish Government should focus on fixing.

Foreign Direct Investment 2016-17 — [James Gray in the Chair] (12 Sep 2017)

Rishi Sunak: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gray. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Mid Dorset and North Poole (Michael Tomlinson) on securing this important debate. He made an excellent speech surveying the issues before us today. We have already heard that, a year after Britain chose to leave the European Union, FDI into our country is higher than it has ever been. The...

Foreign Direct Investment 2016-17 — [James Gray in the Chair] (12 Sep 2017)

Rishi Sunak: I could not agree more with my hon. Friend, who makes an excellent point. I am about to come to the various factors that drive such decisions. A competitive tax regime, particularly for employee taxation, is a key part of that. When it comes to human capital and a research base, Britain is home to four of the world’s best 10 universities. When it comes to a competitive corporate tax...

National Shipbuilding Strategy (6 Sep 2017)

Rishi Sunak: I commend the Secretary of State for his Department’s being the leader across Government in the employment of apprentices, especially at Catterick garrison in my constituency. Will he reassure the House that the use of apprentices will be a key factor in the procurement process to ensure that this exciting new national shipbuilding strategy can support the aspirations of young people...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: National Debt (18 Jul 2017)

Rishi Sunak: The Chancellor will be aware that the current cost of Government borrowing is at a historical low, with gilt yields at 1%. Does he agree that, if markets lose confidence in our ability to live within our means, the cost of that borrowing would spiral, costing us billions of pounds? That would mean less to spend on our public services.

Social Mobility — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (11 Jul 2017)

Rishi Sunak: I could not resist intervening, as my hon. Friend mentioned North Yorkshire schools. As a North Yorkshire MP, he will be aware that the current funding formula disadvantages pupils in North Yorkshire to the tune of hundreds of pounds relative to similar pupils in other areas around the country. Will he urge the Secretary of State to continue her work to correct that unfairness in the funding...

Social Mobility — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (11 Jul 2017)

Rishi Sunak: My hon. Friend is making an excellent speech. I welcome him to his place. I want to touch on his comments about technical and further education. I have campaigned in this House to ensure parity of esteem between those routes and higher education. He talked about filling out UCAS forms. I have talked to Ministers about the idea of having a UCAS for apprenticeships system, which Alan Milburn...

Social Mobility — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (11 Jul 2017)

Rishi Sunak: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Social Mobility — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (11 Jul 2017)

Rishi Sunak: I thank the hon. Lady for giving way, and I commend her for securing this debate on a topic I know she is passionate about, and about which she has spoken passionately in the past. She was just talking about access to higher education. Will she welcome the fact that access for working-class families is at an all-time high, with students from working-class backgrounds now 70% more likely to...

Exiting the European Union and Global Trade (6 Jul 2017)

Rishi Sunak: I thank my right hon. Friend for giving way and for his powerful and optimistic speech on free trade. On reducing protectionism, does he agree that leaving the customs union will give us the ability to reduce import tariffs on many goods that we do not produce here at home, which will reduce costs for ordinary working families and benefit many developing countries by helping them trade into...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (4 Jul 2017)

Rishi Sunak: Last week I met doctors and nurses at the Friarage, an excellent small hospital serving a rural population spread over 1,000 square miles. Will my right hon. Friend urge South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to do everything it can to ensure the continued provision of emergency care clinicians and anaesthetists at this vital local hospital?

Finance (No. 2) Bill (18 Apr 2017)

Rishi Sunak: From the discovery of Australia to the invention of the cat’s eye, the history of Yorkshire’s people is nothing if not entrepreneurial. That spirit is alive and well in my constituency in particular. From Heck sausages to Tennants auction house and the Wensleydale Creamery, ambitious SMEs are at the heart of our community and economy. Before I arrived in this place, I spent my...

Finance (No. 2) Bill (18 Apr 2017)

Rishi Sunak: My hon. Friend makes an excellent point about the freedom for better labelling after we leave the European Union. Does he agree that one sector that could benefit from that is the dairy sector and dairy farming? Those products could have better country of origin labelling, which would help British shoppers to choose British dairy products and support British farmers.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Economic Growth Outside London/South-East (18 Apr 2017)

Rishi Sunak: What steps he is taking to support economic growth outside London and the South East.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Economic Growth Outside London/South-East (18 Apr 2017)

Rishi Sunak: From Merseyside to Teesside, ports are a great northern success story. Will my right hon. Friend look into the potential for the creation of free ports throughout the United Kingdom? Free trade zones would increase trade, create manufacturing jobs and boost regional growth, which are all key ingredients of our future economic prosperity.

National Spitfire Project — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (28 Mar 2017)

Rishi Sunak: I commend my hon. Friend for securing this debate and for the powerful case he is making. He may be aware that production of the Spitfire was distributed to bus depots, laundromats and all sorts of improvised mechanical workshops around Southampton. In that way, thousands of Spitfires were produced, touching the lives of almost every family in Southampton. Does he agree that the monument...
