Leaving the EU: Consumer Protection — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Oct 2017)

Luke Graham: Does the hon. Lady recognise that the example that I used showed the UK going above and beyond what the EU was putting forward? If she would like to be “Stronger for Scotland”, perhaps she would begin by engaging positively with those details and looking at the opportunities we have, rather than always looking at the negative and trying to do the UK down.

Leaving the EU: Consumer Protection — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Oct 2017)

Luke Graham: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Streeter. I commend my hon. Friend the Member for Chelmsford (Vicky Ford) on securing this debate. I will keep my comments brief, but as this is the Brexit Parliament, I welcome this opportunity to debate this important issue. It is entirely right that as we go through the process of exiting the EU we should legislate to protect UK...

Leaving the EU: Consumer Protection — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Oct 2017)

Luke Graham: I would like a few more minutes to develop my point. The other legislative bulwark to consider is the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill. The Bill will convert all EU law into UK law wherever practicable when the UK leaves the EU. In practice, that means that wherever UK law does not already legislate beyond the existing EU minimum requirement, that minimum requirement will become UK law the...

Leaving the EU: Consumer Protection — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Oct 2017)

Luke Graham: I did say Conservative-led, but quite right—the coalition did a number of good things.

Leaving the EU: Consumer Protection — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Oct 2017)

Luke Graham: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention; I always support giving praise where it is due. I would like to end by highlighting the position of the Prime Minister and the Government. Only last week that was highlighted at the Conservative party conference, when the Prime Minister said that “while we are in favour of free markets, we will always take action to fix them when...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Universal Credit (9 Oct 2017)

Luke Graham: My right hon. Friend is aware that I and many of my Conservative colleagues have pressed him on the issue of providing support for people during the six-week assessment and transition periods for universal credit. Will he confirm that jobcentres in Scotland will proactively offer such advances and support where needed?

Luke Graham: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, whether he has received an application to the Access for All programme for funding for platform nine at Stirling station; and if he will meet the hon.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Luke Graham: It is good to follow the hon. Member for Wakefield (Mary Creagh), but I want to turn from sun kings and queens to what the Bill is about: giving the House the mechanism to begin the process of withdrawal from the European Union. Unfortunately, the hon. Member for Bishop Auckland (Helen Goodman) is about to leave the Chamber. I agree with some of the amendments she has suggested, but I would...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Luke Graham: To clarify, there is an amendment on the Order Paper, and I would suggest that some of those provisions should have been included in it. As many hon. Members across the House have said, we would be open to some of the suggested amendments. The Government have committed to listening to the amendments and reacting to them as the parliamentary process progresses. There have not been many...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Luke Graham: That is not in the Bill. There is protection for the Belfast agreement under clause 7(6). We can go through that, but Scotland is a completely different situation, as the hon. Gentleman well knows. [Interruption.] Again, if we can complete Second Reading tonight, the Bill will go through subsequent stages, and we can get to substantive debates on immigration, trade, customs, agriculture and...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

Luke Graham: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

Luke Graham: The hon. Gentleman talks about representing Scotland, but let us remember that 1 million Scots voted to leave. In fact, a third of SNP voters voted to leave. [Interruption.] Those are public stats. What he is actually saying is that, if he truly wants to represent his constituents, he should respect the democratic will of the United Kingdom, which is what he, like all of us, is in this...
