Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Sep 2018)

Giles Watling: My constituency is a mere 69 miles from London, as I am sure my right hon. Friend remembers from her visit a few years ago. You are lucky to cover that tiny journey in an hour and 40 minutes, and that is if you avoid the Network Rail works. Our sunshine coast has a lot to offer economically, a lot of which remains untapped. We could attract new homeowners, doctors and businesses to the area....

Children in Need: Adulthood (6 Sep 2018)

Giles Watling: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that it is good to take a holistic view of these issues and not just deal with the symptoms? We are looking at many generations of poor parenting, which we have to address. We cannot just deal with the symptoms of the children. If we improved the quality of the parenting, we would start to bring those children into a good place, where they could get a decent...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (4 Sep 2018)

Giles Watling: The people of Clacton are getting ready to commemorate the end of world war one in November this year. I have had the honour of visiting our forces in Cyprus, some of whom are on vital NATO operations right now. Does my right hon. Friend agree that our membership of NATO has been key to the maintenance of peace in Europe since the end of world war two?

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Support for Local Government (23 Jul 2018)

Giles Watling: I thank my hon. Friend for that answer, but can he set out how his Department will support local councils to regenerate valuable coastal communities such as Clacton, which is positively Caribbean at the moment?

Public Bill Committee: Parking (Code of Practice) Bill: Parking code (19 Jul 2018)

Giles Watling: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that because of the very large amounts of money that can be involved in such scams—a company called Smart Parking was involved in one such scam on my patch, in Clacton—organised crime can get involved, which can be intimidating? This is not that much different from the old Denver boot that used to be put on vehicles some time ago, indiscriminately...

Public Bill Committee: Parking (Code of Practice) Bill: Parking code (19 Jul 2018)

Giles Watling: I want to pick up on the notice of free parking, which my right hon. Friend brought up. In a particular scam in Clacton last year, some 400 tickets were issued in Ravensdale car park, which had a very large sign that said, “Free parking”. In very small print, hidden round the back, were the terms and conditions that nobody saw. People expected that they would be able to park for...

Giles Watling: What contingency plans his Department is making in the event that the UK leaves the EU without a deal.

Giles Watling: If, in the end, there is no deal, can my hon. Friend assure me that the Government’s contingency plans will take into account often overlooked areas, such as Clacton?

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (19 Jul 2018)

Giles Watling: As we strike out into this brave new world of global trade post Brexit, can my right hon. Friend reassure me that, whatever the result of the negotiations, this Government will redouble their effort to retain cordial relationships with Europe on both trade and security?

Points of Order: Anti-loitering Devices (Regulation) (17 Jul 2018)

Giles Watling: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to prohibit the use of certain anti-loitering devices without a licence; and for connected purposes. In introducing this Bill, I would like to make it clear that I am seeking to regulate the use of sonic anti-loitering devices, more commonly known as mosquitos, rather than ban their use entirely. As colleagues may know, these devices,...

Petition - Home Education: Draft Guidance and Consultation (4 Jul 2018)

Giles Watling: I rise to present a petition with the same title. It has 42 signatures from Clacton constituents. The petition states: The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to withdraw the draft guidance and the consultation, until it has put in place an accessible and workable complaints procedure and further has consulted with home educating parents, as it has...

Supply and Appropriation (Main Estimates) (No. 2) Bill: Meaning of “ivory” (4 Jul 2018)

Giles Watling: I would like to put on record how pleased I am that this Bill is going through the House today, and very speedily—I am grateful for that. At a reception at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office the other day, I watched a very sad film about Sudan, the last male white rhino, who, very sadly, died in March. There are two females left, but it looks as though they are going to die out. I do...

Sustainable Fisheries (4 Jul 2018)

Giles Watling: As my right hon. Friend knows, we do not have a very large fishing fleet on the glorious coastline of Clacton-on-Sea, but we do have many fish and chip shops. Will he assure me that, post-Brexit, those who fish in our waters will be encouraged to fish sustainably so that we can enjoy the wide of variety of fish that we currently do?
