Trade Bill: Report on proposed free trade agreement (17 Jul 2018)

Gillian Keegan: Thank you, Mr Speaker, for giving me the opportunity to speak in the debate. I served on the Committee, and it is clear to me that we should pass the Bill in order to build the legal foundations that we need to support global trade by ensuring that existing trade agreements via the EU can continue, providing access to overseas procurement opportunities—an important market worth...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Transport Infrastructure (5 Jul 2018)

Gillian Keegan: What assessment he has made of the effect of operationally efficient transport infrastructure on levels of productivity.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Transport Infrastructure (5 Jul 2018)

Gillian Keegan: Many of my constituents in Chichester and the surrounding area lose hours and hours each week sitting in traffic on the A27. That has a knock-on negative impact on productivity, the local economy and the environment. Will my right hon. Friend ensure that road investment decisions for areas such as Chichester, which are already over capacity, are prioritised in the road infrastructure...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (4 Jul 2018)

Gillian Keegan: Domestic abuse is an act of brutality often hidden in plain sight, and it affects one in four women and one in six men across this country. Last week saw the launch of the Employers’ Initiative on Domestic Abuse, and 170 companies and some MPs have signed up to train their employees to spot the tell-tale signs and to help provide much-needed support. Will the Prime Minister support this...

Prime Minister: Engagements (27 Jun 2018)

Gillian Keegan: All Rolls-Royce motorcars—an iconic global brand—are made in my constituency. Every day, 150 trucks arrive from Europe to supply BMW plants, and 120 trucks leave the UK headed for Europe. We are the only serious party of business, so can the Prime Minister give some certainty and confidence to the largest employer in my constituency and businesses up and down the country that...

Insecure Work and the Gig Economy (20 Jun 2018)

Gillian Keegan: Me and many others.

Insecure Work and the Gig Economy (20 Jun 2018)

Gillian Keegan: I will follow your guidance, Mr McCabe, although I am the only Back-Bench Member represented on the Government Benches. I would like to thank the hon. Member for Barnsley East (Stephanie Peacock) for securing this important debate. The 21st century has brought us the advent of digital technologies, which have been transformational to working environments, creating opportunity and...

Gosport Independent Panel: Publication of Report (20 Jun 2018)

Gillian Keegan: The culture of closing ranks and ignoring whistleblowers in the NHS is gravely worrying. Even as a new MP, I have had constituency cases where people have alerted me to this, and I feel that it could still happen today. What implications will the report have for the wider health service, particularly for elderly care and people who have family members in these situations?

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

Gillian Keegan: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir David. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Angus (Kirstene Hair) on securing this important debate and highlighting the risk to all our coastal communities. Many of my constituents are lucky enough to live by the sea, with beautiful views and a vibrant tourism economy. The Chichester constituency is home to some of the...

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

Gillian Keegan: I agree. My local authority is very concerned by negative RSG, not just the disappearance of RSG. Negative RSG would mean having to pay more to support other areas. The council’s collaborative work has achieved high levels of third-party investment and led to better coastal protection. My hon. Friend is right that we need to properly fund our coastal areas. At East Head and at Pagham...

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

Gillian Keegan: That is the point of the debate; we have to do something about it, because no one would want to see the disappearance of such an important stretch of coastline or the nature reserves we have in the area. My hon. Friend is right that we have to focus on low-lying areas, but protecting the Chichester constituency coastline and the south coast will be increasingly important. As an area, we must...

Non-Domestic Rating (Nursery Grounds) Bill (5 Jun 2018)

Gillian Keegan: My hon. Friend was talking about the prosperity of our economy. Does she agree that the growers and the farming industry of the future are important to that prosperity? There are many technological changes coming along in germination, for example, and our growers and farmers do not want to be sat there thinking about rates on particular buildings or polytunnels. The Bill is important to allow...

Non-Domestic Rating (Nursery Grounds) Bill (5 Jun 2018)

Gillian Keegan: Chichester is home to a vibrant rural economy that is worth over £1 billion to the area and employs 9,000 people. It is the largest single employer by sector. We have a major growing environment, and this is due to our wonderful environment—our weather, sunshine and, mostly, proximity to the coast means that we have 10% more light than any other area in the UK, and that boosts...

UK Automotive Industry: Job Losses — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (22 May 2018)

Gillian Keegan: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Bone, and I thank the hon. Member for Warwick and Leamington (Matt Western) for securing this important debate. Job losses in the automotive industry are of great concern to everybody, particularly to those of us with car manufacturers in our constituencies. My constituency, Chichester, is home to Rolls-Royce, which is the single largest...

Rating (Property in Common Occupation) and Council Tax (Empty Dwellings) Bill: Housing and Homes (15 May 2018)

Gillian Keegan: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Crewe and Nantwich (Laura Smith). During the recent Public Accounts Committee inquiry into homelessness I, like many, was surprised to discover the large number of people who, although they are not technically classed as homeless, are living in temporary accommodation. More than 77,000 families are housed in temporary accommodation, which has a...

Attorney General: Gangs: Exploitation of Vulnerable People (10 May 2018)

Gillian Keegan: What steps the CPS is taking to increase its effectiveness in prosecuting crimes involving the exploitation of vulnerable people by gangs.

Attorney General: Gangs: Exploitation of Vulnerable People (10 May 2018)

Gillian Keegan: In Chichester, drug dealers are regularly taking over the homes of vulnerable people who suffer from mental health problems or from drug dependency themselves in a process known as cuckooing. Sussex police tell me that they struggle to identify the gang leaders who control the cuckoos as they are based outside the county. What steps is the CPS taking to prosecute those gang leaders...

Transport for the South East — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (25 Apr 2018)

Gillian Keegan: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Henry. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Bexhill and Battle (Huw Merriman) on securing this important debate. Transport infrastructure is a core component in the functioning of a modern society. Transport has the power to guide our decisions about where to live, study and work. If it is done well, it can transform and...

Transport for the South East — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (25 Apr 2018)

Gillian Keegan: I agree, of course. As a fellow member of the APPG on Southern Rail, I agree with its recommendations. In the south-east, high economic activity is good news for our area, but that does not tell the whole story. Many coastal and rural communities miss out on the wider region’s success. In part, social and economic exclusion can be attributed to the design of the transport network, and...
