Transport for the North (24 Nov 2021)

Paul Howell: When it comes to the discussions around this, I do not think it is helpful to get the Northern Powerhouse Partnership chairman on TV claiming that things are not going to happen that were never even going to happen under Northern Powerhouse Rail. The misleading words being said are no use to this debate at all. When we talk about the north, one of the big things that is a concern to us is the...

Women and Equalities: Women in the Workplace (24 Nov 2021)

Paul Howell: Last week I met Stuart and Daphne Anderson at Farnless bison farm in Sedgefield. They are concerned that the rules of succession for tenancy unfairly discriminate against women, affecting their ability to work in the farming industry. Will the Minister meet me to discuss the issue and ensure that he is clear about those concerns?

Backbench Business: Automated External Defibrillators: Public Access — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (18 Nov 2021)

Paul Howell: Just to clarify the point about a defibrillator telling someone if it will not work, it actually will not work as a machine if it is used in the wrong way.

Backbench Business: Automated External Defibrillators: Public Access — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (18 Nov 2021)

Paul Howell: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. It has been an absolute pleasure to support the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon) in his endeavours. I thank him for his kind comments, and thank all other colleagues who are supporting the debate. The importance of access to AEDs in a life-threatening medical emergency cannot be disputed. In addition to the high-profile...

Integrated Rail Plan: North and Midlands (18 Nov 2021)

Paul Howell: I welcome the announcement and particularly the improved speed of delivery. Once in a generation would be good; I do not know whether my hon. Friend the Member for Keighley (Robbie Moore) will be here in 2043, but I will be 83 years old, so I do not want it to take that long. I really encourage as much UK provision into the supply line as possible. I will be leaving the House later today to...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Offshore Wind Energy (16 Nov 2021)

Paul Howell: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the recent comprehensive spending review and Budget announcement shows that the Government are delivering an historic increase in R&D investment to build back better with a high skill and wage economy for all of the UK? That is very much reflected in NETPark in Sedgefield, which he had the pleasure of visiting recently.

Transport: Rail Investment in the North: Levelling Up (4 Nov 2021)

Paul Howell: When it comes to investment in the north, I welcome the recent investments in the feasibility work for Ferryhill station and the Weardale line. Of course, I am disappointed with what happened regarding the knock-back for the Leamside line, but I ask the Minister to work with us and the hon. Member for Washington and Sunderland West (Mrs Hodgson) to look at funding streams and at potentially...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (2 Nov 2021)

Paul Howell: I absolutely agree that we need to take another look at the Leamside line, but I would like to come back on your comments about Labour being interested in business. [Hon. Members: “Not ‘you’.”] My apologies, Madam Deputy Speaker. If Labour Members are so interested in business, why is their attendance at the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee so woeful?

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (2 Nov 2021)

Paul Howell: Will the hon. Member give way?

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (2 Nov 2021)

Paul Howell: I absolutely will work with the hon. Member. I have already made appointments to talk to Transport Ministers about the matter. My point is that the Chair of the Business Committee is a very regular attender, but he is the only one.

Weardale Railway (1 Nov 2021)

Paul Howell: As my hon. Friend the Member for North West Durham (Mr Holden) said, I worked for a number of years up at Eastgate at what was the thriving cement works industry. Unfortunately, that was lost as part of the squeeze between Scotland and the midlands. Part of the reason for that was probably the economics of getting trucks of cement out of that valley—it did not help that there was not a...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Satellites: North East (1 Nov 2021)

Paul Howell: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what plans his Department has to support the North East Space Hub.

Income Tax (Charge) (28 Oct 2021)

Paul Howell: Does my hon. Friend agree that when we talk about champagne, we are probably more likely to be talking about a £7 bottle of prosecco?

Income Tax (Charge) (28 Oct 2021)

Paul Howell: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Cardiff North (Anna McMorrin). In the limited time available, I will talk primarily about infrastructure and education, but I want to cover a number of other issues, too. I start by talking about the many small businesses we have throughout Sedgefield. I agree with my hon. Friend the Member for Harrogate and Knaresborough (Andrew Jones) that a...

Income Tax (Charge) (28 Oct 2021)

Paul Howell: On the right hon. Gentleman’s comments about credibility, I have sat on two north-east Labour councils, Darlington Borough Council and Durham County Council. When the Conservatives were in charge in Darlington, Labour wanted the target to be 2030. When Labour was in charge in Durham, it wanted the target to be 2050. Is there consistency in Labour party policy or not?

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Coronavirus: Vaccination (25 Oct 2021)

Paul Howell: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what steps he will take to ensure that people with underlying health conditions who took part in the Novavax trial can receive a third dose of a covid-19 vaccination.

Employment and Trade Union Rights (Dismissal and Re-engagement) Bill (22 Oct 2021)

Paul Howell: One thing that has been debated a few times is whether the Bill actually removes fire and rehire. Cleary—from the intention of the hon. Member for Brent North (Barry Gardiner)—it does not. We have also heard that a lot of employees are concerned not just about the risk of fire and rehire, but about the threat of that. If we do not remove fire and rehire, the threat will still sit there,...

Health Incentives Scheme (22 Oct 2021)

Paul Howell: The importance of engagement with the pilot survey has already been mentioned. Sedgefield, like most of our constituencies, has various demographics, but I am thinking of certain neighbourhoods in particular. The all-party parliamentary group for “left behind” neighbourhoods, which I chair, found that some areas do not have the capacity even to become engaged in programmes such as this....

Cop26: Progress on Limiting Global Heating (20 Oct 2021)

Paul Howell: Does the COP26 President agree with me and the all-party parliamentary group for “left behind” neighbourhoods that sometimes the way to engage people is with things that matter to them, such as the cost of heating their house, as opposed to changing the green agenda every time? If we go for different agendas for people, we can get a lot more acceptance and buy-in.
