Select Committee on Justice: Russian Federation Activity (28 Jun 2018)

Bob Seely: Thank you, Ms Buck, as well as Mr Bone, for your chairmanship of the debate. I thank the Front-Bench Members as well as my hon. Friend the Member for Clacton (Giles Watling) and the hon. Member for Aberavon (Stephen Kinnock) for taking part. On the hon. Gentleman’s point, it is incredibly important to understand Russia’s complex, somewhat love-hate relationship with the west...

Select Committee on Justice: Russian Federation Activity (28 Jun 2018)

Bob Seely: I beg to move, That this House has considered Russian Federation activity in the UK and globally. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Bone. This is an important issue for me and I hope that others will see it as important, too. I am thankful to those who are taking part in this debate. One of the most significant challenges that we face in this era is the Kremlin’s...

Select Committee on Justice: Russian Federation Activity (28 Jun 2018)

Bob Seely: I think the hon. Gentleman is more of an expert than I am on that. I absolutely think that the strength of our electoral systems and their vulnerability is one of the critical issues. I think it is number 8 on my list, so I will come to it shortly. I am grateful for his suggestion, which goes further than what I would propose. To wind up the first point, occasional Government statements are...

Select Committee on Justice: Russian Federation Activity (28 Jun 2018)

Bob Seely: I do not believe we are—certainly not in this country.

Select Committee on Justice: Russian Federation Activity (28 Jun 2018)

Bob Seely: Thank you, Mr Bone. I am well aware of the point. The suspects in this case range from the improbable to the possible. There are many Australians on the visitor logs to the embassy, which I have seen, but there is no evidence, and little reason, for those people to have been involved in handling stolen material. There have been allegations that UK politicians may have been conduits, but it...

Healthcare on English Islands — [David Hanson in the Chair] (27 Jun 2018)

Bob Seely: Only to thank you for your chairmanship, Mr Hanson, and the Minister, the shadow Minister, and the officials for attending. Thank you so much. Question put and agreed to. Resolved, That this House has considered the provision of healthcare on English islands. Sitting suspended.

Healthcare on English Islands — [David Hanson in the Chair] (27 Jun 2018)

Bob Seely: One point that I did not make was that when it comes to looking at dementia, the Island would be very open to becoming a national leader or a place where academics and researchers could investigate how we can live better with dementia in this country. We have double the national average of people with dementia, so it would be a natural fit for us.

Healthcare on English Islands — [David Hanson in the Chair] (27 Jun 2018)

Bob Seely: I beg to move, That this House has considered the provision of healthcare on English islands. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hanson. I thank the Speaker’s Office for granting this debate and the Minister for coming to respond to it. I will outline three arguments. First, I will explain why I believe Isle of Wight health services remain underfunded compared with...

Bob Seely: What progress his Department has made on the Global Britain agenda.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Global Britain (26 Jun 2018)

Bob Seely: Does my right hon. Friend agree that this is the perfect opportunity for us to fundamentally rethink our foreign policy post Brexit, and that more work could be done on the idea of global Britain to ensure that we have a foreign policy fit for the 21st century?

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Museums Sector (21 Jun 2018)

Bob Seely: What steps he is taking to support the museums sector.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Museums Sector (21 Jun 2018)

Bob Seely: Will the Minister do all he can to support my campaign to encourage national cultural institutions to engage with the Island, for education and regeneration purposes? Does he agree that the Island, with its unique relationship with the arts and sciences over the centuries, should be a perfect partner for many of those institutions?

Coastal Erosion — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (12 Jun 2018)

Bob Seely: I am so grateful to my hon. Friend for giving way and for securing this debate. Does she realise that I fully support her call for erosion funding and I will be seeking a meeting with the Minister on this issue? The most significant ground instability problem and the largest occupied landslip in the United Kingdom is the undercliff on the Isle of Wight. Part of the road there gave way, and it...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Digital Railway Strategy (24 May 2018)

Bob Seely: What steps he is taking to implement the digital railway strategy.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Digital Railway Strategy (24 May 2018)

Bob Seely: Later this month, the priced option for the Island line in my constituency will be presented. I will be writing next week in support of that priced option. Can the Minister assure me that the Government understands the importance of the Island line to the Island and the importance of investment in it—in track, railway and stations such as Ryde Pier Head, which is on the pier, and Ryde...

Gaming Machines (17 May 2018)

Bob Seely: Many islanders are very grateful for this decision by the Minister and the Secretary of State, and I welcome it strongly. Is the Minister aware that on the Isle of Wight more than £19.9 million was lost on these wretched machines between 2008 and 2016? Does she agree that there are many better ways of spending that money? Does she also agree that the gambling industry, in its almost...

International Trade: Commonwealth Countries: Trade Agreements (17 May 2018)

Bob Seely: What progress he made on potential trade agreements with Commonwealth countries at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in April 2018.

International Trade: Commonwealth Countries: Trade Agreements (17 May 2018)

Bob Seely: That is good news. Firms in my constituency such as GKN-Melrose, Vestas and BAE Systems export across the Commonwealth and the wider world. Is my right hon. Friend confident that post Brexit, we will be able to continue and grow that trade?

Community Transport — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (10 May 2018)

Bob Seely: I thank the hon. Lady for calling this debate. On the Isle of Wight, we have the excellent FYTbus service—the Freshwater, Yarmouth and Totland service. It is very successful and needs no further help. This heavy-handed and bizarre approach to regulation puts a question mark over the future of the FYTbus service, and I think that that is very unnecessary. Does she agree that we need to...

Community Transport — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (10 May 2018)

Bob Seely: The whole point about voluntary bus services, such as the FYT Bus and others that we are here to defend, is that they take up the slack where there is no commercial option because the commercial bus operators will not provide services in those areas. That is the whole purpose and logic of having voluntary services.
