Universal Credit Project Assessment Reviews (5 Dec 2017)

Lee Rowley: I can explain exactly what it means: when we discover a problem, we fix it as we go; we do not throw out the entire system. We are thinking about benefiting people in the long term. Nobody is saying the system is perfect, but the point of fixing forward is to improve as we go, which has been the principle since the beginning of the policy.

Universal Credit Project Assessment Reviews (5 Dec 2017)

Lee Rowley: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker, for the opportunity to contribute to this important debate. Universal credit is a vital reform for our country and for those who rely on the system to live. Universal credit enables people to get off that system and find the jobs they need to provide for their families and children in the long term. I have been listening with interest to the debate since it...

University Tuition Fees — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (27 Nov 2017)

Lee Rowley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir David. I have to confess to being slightly surprised at being called first, but none the less I am very happy to contribute to the debate and thank you very much for the opportunity to do so. I also thank the hon. Member for Hartlepool (Mike Hill) for introducing the debate. I wanted to contribute this afternoon because the subject is...

University Tuition Fees — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (27 Nov 2017)

Lee Rowley: I completely accept that there is a societal good, and that is exactly why we should have debates such as this one. The reality is still that a proportion of the cost per student, on average, in our university sector is being paid for by society. An increasing portion is being paid for by the individual, but a portion is still being paid by society. The hon. Lady is absolutely right to make...

University Tuition Fees — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (27 Nov 2017)

Lee Rowley: I accept in principle that there should be a societal contribution and an individual contribution, which I think the hon. Member for Wirral West (Margaret Greenwood) was querying. My argument— the hon. Member for Poplar and Limehouse (Jim Fitzpatrick) was absolutely correct about this—is that when an individual gains the most, they should be expected to contribute the most. We...

University Tuition Fees — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (27 Nov 2017)

Lee Rowley: I thank the hon. Lady for that point, but I am not au fait with the specific subject and area that she outlined. However, if we accept the principle, which started in the late ’90s and was extended in subsequent periods, of trying to engender choice in this area and accept some element of market-based principles—I know that is controversial with some in the Chamber—then when...

Hydraulic Fracturing: North East Derbyshire — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (22 Nov 2017)

Lee Rowley: I beg to move, That this House has considered the potential effect of hydraulic fracturing in North East Derbyshire. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mrs Main. I am grateful for the opportunity to talk about an issue of immense importance to me and to the residents of the constituency that I have the privilege to represent. North East Derbyshire is part of the petroleum...

Hydraulic Fracturing: North East Derbyshire — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (22 Nov 2017)

Lee Rowley: My hon. Friend highlights a point that I will come to in a moment: we have a variety of potential opportunities here, including some we have not necessarily thought about previously, such as tidal lagoons. Proponents of fracking would argue that the United Kingdom, blessed by large scale energy resources, should take the opportunities to harvest the energy beneath its sea and soil, to improve...

Hydraulic Fracturing: North East Derbyshire — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (22 Nov 2017)

Lee Rowley: The hon. Lady brings up an important point—one that I will come to later in my speech, because it is vital to understand that specific point before we conclude. Some will argue from an environmental perspective, some from a perspective on the sheer imposition of activity, and others will be concerned about the uncertainty that fracking brings, for a multitude of reasons, which I cannot...

Hydraulic Fracturing: North East Derbyshire — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (22 Nov 2017)

Lee Rowley: I agree with the hon. Lady in terms of the importance of local communities being taken along with the country as a whole when it comes to fracking. Whatever people’s views are on fracking, there is certainly a job to be done on that. Notwithstanding all the challenges to national policy I have described, that does not mean that we should automatically default to being in favour of...

Hydraulic Fracturing: North East Derbyshire — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (22 Nov 2017)

Lee Rowley: I understand the point that the hon. Lady is making, but I am not sure that I necessarily agree with her conclusion. There have obviously been some places where the planning inspector has rejected the rejection of the planning authority, but in others the planning authority accepted the application in the first place or the planning inspector has not yet made an absolute decision. I do not...

Hydraulic Fracturing: North East Derbyshire — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (22 Nov 2017)

Lee Rowley: I absolutely concur. I will come to traffic in a moment, but I understand that if this application goes ahead, the traffic management plan is likely to propose that it goes away from the hon. Gentleman’s constituency. However, I cannot imagine the concerns that lorries going round 90° bends and down one-way streets would create in Ridgeway and Ford, were that to happen. As I said,...

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Topical Questions (22 Nov 2017)

Lee Rowley: Will the Minister confirm how employers in North East Derbyshire—small and medium-sized businesses—can be helped to win Government contracts?

European Economic Area: Uk Membership: Transport in the North (6 Nov 2017)

Lee Rowley: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker, for the opportunity to speak in this evening’s debate. I stand here as the MP for an east midlands constituency; I hope Members with constituencies further north will allow me to contribute tonight, particularly given that many of my constituents regularly use Sheffield and travel to the north by both rail and road. I congratulate the hon. Member for...
