Five-year Land Supply (4 Jul 2018)

Lee Rowley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Christopher. I, too, congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for South Suffolk (James Cartlidge) on securing the debate. The problem is country-wide and it affects North East Derbyshire. At times, this debate has seemed like a self-help group where we all put our concerns and difficulties on the table. We are experiencing similar...

Five-year Land Supply (4 Jul 2018)

Lee Rowley: My hon. Friend makes a correct and important point. The only way that we can have any semblance of control over the planning system is by extraordinary displays of public opposition to applications that should never have gone through in the first place. Hundreds of hours of residents’ time are lost on many meetings that should not have to happen. Hundreds of thousands of pounds are...

Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

Lee Rowley: I am grateful for the opportunity to speak in this important debate. I support the proposed expansion of Heathrow and will vote accordingly. I will do so not because I do not accept there are many real and heartfelt reasons why Members feel, as they have explained today, they cannot support it, but ultimately because I believe that, on balance, it is in the national interest that we progress...

Retail Sector (6 Jun 2018)

Lee Rowley: Thank you for the welcome opportunity to contribute to this important debate, Madam Deputy Speaker. I also welcome the Opposition using their time to discuss these ideas, although obviously I do not agree with a number of things in their motion. As many Members on both sides of the House have said, the fundamental point is that the high street and the retail sector are changing. Things are...

Retail Sector (6 Jun 2018)

Lee Rowley: I appreciate and understand the point that the hon. Lady is making, but does she also acknowledge that there has been a significant amount of job growth in the last few years, particularly in areas such as logistics, handling and shipping, which should be celebrated?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Leaving the EU: UK Legal System (5 Jun 2018)

Lee Rowley: What steps the Government plans to take to ensure that the UK legal system operates effectively after the UK leaves the EU.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Leaving the EU: UK Legal System (5 Jun 2018)

Lee Rowley: Given that the UK legal industry is worth approximately £25 billion to the UK economy, what steps is the Ministry taking to ensure that this world standing is maintained post-Brexit?

Planning: Local Communities (23 May 2018)

Lee Rowley: In councils such as mine, which have not particularly pushed neighbourhood plans, when a parish council does not want to take up the opportunity of such a plan, will the Government look at the potential for other interested resident groups in the area to do something similar to a neighbourhood plan even when the parish council is unwilling or unable to propose one?

Leaving the Eu: Customs (16 May 2018)

Lee Rowley: Well, well, well, it is Wednesday, it is an Opposition day, and we are doing the Humble Address again. That rarely used instrument of parliamentary procedure, which has not been seen much over the past 200 years, has suddenly been used half a dozen times in less than six months. I accept that, effectively, there are two groups within the main Opposition party. Those in the more sensible...

Infection Prevention and Control — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (15 May 2018)

Lee Rowley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Howarth. I, too, congratulate the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon) on securing the debate. As my hon. Friend the Member for Moray (Douglas Ross) said, the hon. Gentleman has attended some of the debates that I have led in previous months, so I am grateful for the opportunity to speak in a debate that he has introduced. I know...

Infection Prevention and Control — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (15 May 2018)

Lee Rowley: I absolutely agree. I think everybody would recognise that there is more work to be done. I will not take up any more time. I welcome the commitment from the Government on matters such as sepsis. There is acknowledgment across the House and from the Government, I hope, that there is more to be done in this area—there is public concern and a desire for public focus—and that process...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Midlands Engine (30 Apr 2018)

Lee Rowley: What steps his Department is taking to deliver economic growth through the midlands engine.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Midlands Engine (30 Apr 2018)

Lee Rowley: I, too, congratulate the Secretary of State on his appointment. Does he agree that the right infrastructure must be provided to support the economic growth to which he has referred? Although he is new to his post, may I give a quick plug to a bid from my part of the world, north-east Derbyshire, for a housing infrastructure fund to regenerate the Staveley area further, and will he commit...

Backbench Business: Financial Services — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (26 Apr 2018)

Lee Rowley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir David. I am grateful for the opportunity to speak. I should at the outset disclose my interests—both directly, in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests, and as co-chair and member of a number of all-party parliamentary groups. My background is also relevant. I have worked in financial services for the best part of the...

Laser Misuse (Vehicles) Bill [Lords] (Programme): Industrial Strategy (18 Apr 2018)

Lee Rowley: I am glad of the opportunity to speak in this important debate. It is a pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Stirling (Stephen Kerr), who speaks for his area with characteristic vigour. It is also a pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Redditch (Rachel Maclean), who made the sterling point that the way in which to make sure our country develops economically is...

[Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (27 Mar 2018)

Lee Rowley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Dame Cheryl. I am grateful for the opportunity to speak. Like my hon. Friend the Member for Witney (Robert Courts), I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Harborough (Neil O’Brien) on securing this vital and incredibly timely debate on an issue that we talk about in this Chamber and beyond. An important principle that needs to...

Local Infrastructure (East Midlands) (20 Mar 2018)

Lee Rowley: I thank everybody who has contributed today. It has been a positive debate that occasionally deviated into much larger areas around policy and housing for the future. On the whole, the message from the debate is clear: the east midlands is open for business and wants to get on. To help us get on with getting on, we need infrastructure support, which we are getting and need to continue to get...

Local Infrastructure (East Midlands) (20 Mar 2018)

Lee Rowley: I beg to move, That this House has considered investment in local infrastructure to secure new homes in the East Midlands. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Roger. I welcome the opportunity to debate this important topic, particularly from a regional perspective, with Members from all parties who have joined us. I welcome the hon. Member for Chesterfield (Toby Perkins),...

Local Infrastructure (East Midlands) (20 Mar 2018)

Lee Rowley: I completely agree. House building is important for home ownership and for helping people to rent and put down roots, but also for the economic growth and the jobs that come with house building in the first place. There is a general consensus that increased house building is needed, both to house our growing population but also, I hope, to fulfil the home ownership aspirations I have talked about.

Local Infrastructure (East Midlands) (20 Mar 2018)

Lee Rowley: There is a consensus that more homes need to be built. There are many ways in which they can be built; some will be via state intervention and some will be via increased support for private building. I welcome them all. The reality is that we have to ensure that significant numbers of homes are built, and the Government are committed to that. The output is what is important to me, rather...
