Business of the House (24 Sep 2020)

Dehenna Davison: A few weeks ago in the Chamber, I raised my—and my constituents’—concerns about Sunnydale School in Shildon, which has been closed since December after falling into disrepair. We have now learnt that the cost of the most basic repairs to get the school reopened is about £4.8 million, which is a vast sum. The council is obviously quite worried about this. Does my right hon. Friend agree...

EU Exit: End of Transition Period (23 Sep 2020)

Dehenna Davison: My right hon. Friend will know that I share his vivacious optimism about Britain’s future as an independent sovereign trading nation, but the farmers of Teesdale and Weardale are understandably concerned about what happens if we get to the end of the year without an agreement. Will he reassure the House and my constituents that all is being done by our negotiators to reach that deal? Does...

Covid-19 Update (17 Sep 2020)

Dehenna Davison: As a north-east Tory MP, I am grateful to my right hon. Friend for engaging so effectively with our local authorities in the north-east as we try to tackle this really worrying rise in cases. However, I am concerned that residents across my constituency are facing these difficult, restrictive measures yet not seeing many rises in covid cases in our local communities. How will he review the...

Business of the House (17 Sep 2020)

Dehenna Davison: I was delighted to see the Government launch a taskforce to reopen Hammersmith bridge in London, the closure of which has been a congestion nightmare for hard-working Londoners, but as part of the levelling-up agenda at the heart of the Government, we need to bridge the gap between London and some of our left-behind communities. On that note, will my right hon. Friend assure me that the...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 46 - Power to provide financial assistance for economic development etc (16 Sep 2020)

Dehenna Davison: I want to thank everyone from across the House for making incredibly strong contributions today, regardless of which side of the debate they fall on. I stand here to speak about a principle that underpins the reason we all stand in this Chamber, that is a cornerstone of our democracy and the backbone of our Union. I am here today to talk about freedom. The notion of freedom and a desire to...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 46 - Power to provide financial assistance for economic development etc (16 Sep 2020)

Dehenna Davison: The hon. Gentleman will recall that a few years ago the people of Scotland had the political freedom to choose whether or not they wanted to remain part of this Union and they made that decision. This Government have been given an overwhelming democratic mandate to make sure that delivering on the will of the British people is achieved. The British public had the freedom to choose to leave...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 46 - Power to provide financial assistance for economic development etc (16 Sep 2020)

Dehenna Davison: The United Kingdom is a Union—the clue is in the name. I will not forget, nor will I ever take it for granted, that the residents of Bishop Auckland had the freedom to choose me as their voice in Parliament. Across every demographic on my patch—from Spennymoor to Shildon and from Barney to Bowes—I have heard the same message: “We have been taken for granted. We have been left behind....

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 46 - Power to provide financial assistance for economic development etc (16 Sep 2020)

Dehenna Davison: There are multiple devolution Acts, which I am happy to email to the hon. Lady if she wants to find that out for herself. Let us not forget that the British people have demonstrated the right and power to operate with sovereignty time and time again.

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 46 - Power to provide financial assistance for economic development etc (16 Sep 2020)

Dehenna Davison: As in so many things, I completely agree with my hon. Friend.

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 46 - Power to provide financial assistance for economic development etc (16 Sep 2020)

Dehenna Davison: I am not going to give way again. Sovereignty must apply to our United Kingdom, and I do not just mean the mainland. The European Union wants us to build a wall—not a physical wall, but a vast barrier that will none the less rip a deep wound into the heart of our Union, and we cannot allow there to be any kind of barrier between Great Britain and Northern Ireland. We gave our word to the...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 46 - Power to provide financial assistance for economic development etc (16 Sep 2020)

Dehenna Davison: I will not be giving way again; there are other Members who want to speak. I now turn to my friends in Scotland. We all remember how we witnessed the people of Scotland exert their right of political freedom to choose to stay as part of our Union. [Interruption.] I cannot state this more clearly: the United Kingdom is stronger united. The Scottish people chose their future as part of our...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 46 - Power to provide financial assistance for economic development etc (16 Sep 2020)

Dehenna Davison: I will not give way again. I know by now I should not be surprised by SNP Members’ antics, but I am surprised by the tone of their amendments today. I find it remarkable that SNP Members are against the prospect of additional funding for their communities. They would rather have UK taxpayers hand over our pocket money to Brussels in order for it to siphon off a portion, give us a measly bit...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 46 - Power to provide financial assistance for economic development etc (16 Sep 2020)

Dehenna Davison: That is much appreciated. I must say I really respect the fact that we on this side of the House tend to be more polite and to listen when Opposition Members are speaking. I have spoken about the freedoms that we have, and about the freedoms that we are aiming to deliver. They are the freedoms that the British public have told us time and again that they want us to have. Clause 46 is a vital...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 46 - Power to provide financial assistance for economic development etc (16 Sep 2020)

Dehenna Davison: I would just like to thank the hon. Member for his mansplaining.

The Prime Minister was asked: Engagements (16 Sep 2020)

Dehenna Davison: Every day, I receive messages from Bishop Auckland residents about crime and how they want to see us politicians taking a tougher stance. My own history involves learning about violent crime in a way I never wished to learn about it, and that is part of the reason that I stand here today. The first duty of any Government is to protect the public they serve, but for too long our criminal...

Unpaid Work Experience (Prohibition) (No. 2) Bill (11 Sep 2020)

Dehenna Davison: I hope that the hon. Gentleman and those on the Conservative Benches will welcome the Government’s intervention on the kickstart scheme, which offers paid placements—paid jobs—for people right across our country to try to stop young people from going into long-term unemployment. I hope he will welcome that.

Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies (Environmentally Sustainable Investment) Bill (11 Sep 2020)

Dehenna Davison: Co-operatives UK produced a report in 2019 which said that the north-east has the highest number of co-operatives per head of population. Does my hon. Friend agree that getting the policy on co-operatives right is even more vital for the north-east and the areas that he and I represent?
