Grenfell Tower (19 Oct 2017)

Alex Burghart: The whole House will agree that it is important that those who have been directly affected by the fire have their voices heard, so will the Secretary of State update us on what meetings the Government have had with the victims?

Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Alex Burghart: I am grateful for the opportunity to speak in this debate, Madam Deputy Speaker. I have been following the progress of universal credit since its inception about 10 years ago. The shadow Secretary of State asked, at the start of her remarks, how did we get here? How did we get to a place where there is a new benefit system on the table whose principles are agreed by most in this House? Those...

Unauthorised Encampments — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (12 Oct 2017)

Alex Burghart: Since I became an MP in June, two issues above all others have occupied my mailbag: potholes and unauthorised encampments. Between February and August, our area had about one unauthorised encampment every 11 days. I second the excellent comments of my right hon. Friend the Member for Rayleigh and Wickford (Mr Francois) in the debate on Monday. I am concerned that law-abiding citizens in my...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Health and Work Programme (9 Oct 2017)

Schools: National Funding Formula: General Election Campaign: Abuse and Intimidation (14 Sep 2017)

Alex Burghart: It is a real pleasure to speak in a debate in which there is so much to agree with on both sides of the House. Members are not always good enough at standing up for themselves and the importance of being a Member of Parliament. I have suffered my fair share of electoral abuse, not so much in my current seat but when I was churlish enough to be a Conservative candidate in Islington North. On a...

Schools: National Funding Formula: General Election Campaign: Abuse and Intimidation (14 Sep 2017)

Alex Burghart: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Finance Bill (12 Sep 2017)

Alex Burghart: A number of measures in the Bill will be very broadly supported by my constituents as they uphold some of the values that Members have raised, such as the importance of fairness in our economy. My constituents believe in hard work and fair play, and many measures in the Bill support those values. In particular, we intend to get more money out of non-doms and will raise money for the Exchequer...

Finance Bill (12 Sep 2017)

Alex Burghart: I listened to the opening remarks in today’s debate and I did not hear anyone from the Opposition welcoming record employment, so I am glad to hear the hon. Gentleman do so now. If I gave him the opportunity, I am sure that he would also want to welcome the fact that inequality is reducing and that a whole generation will benefit from growing up in households with work. It is a gift...

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

Alex Burghart: I am grateful to you, Mr Speaker, for the opportunity to speak in this historic debate. It is getting late and a good many of the issues that need raising have been raised, but I would just like to return to a few of them. I rise to support the Bill for one very good reason: it is the sort of Bill most of my constituents would like to see. They voted overwhelmingly to leave the EU and, like...

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

Alex Burghart: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that intervention. I know that Opposition Members feel the same as me, because they have not raised a single meaningful reason why the Bill should be voted down. As my right hon. Friend the Member for West Dorset (Sir Oliver Letwin) said on Thursday with a logician’s concision, to say that we will oppose the whole Bill because we disagree with a few...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: University Education: Access (11 Sep 2017)

Alex Burghart: I warmly welcome the fact that there are more poorer children going to university than ever before. Will the Minister join me in welcoming the initiative taken by University College, Oxford—now officially the greatest university in the world—which has reserved places every year for pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds, to ensure that more of them have access to world-class education?

Schools Update (17 Jul 2017)

Alex Burghart: I congratulate my right hon. Friend on today’s statement. Schools in my constituency will be delighted to hear that per-pupil funding is being protected in real terms, and taxpayers in my constituency will be delighted to hear that it is being done through departmental efficiencies. Does she agree that paying for this by putting additional borrowing on to future generations really would...
