Continuity Trade Agreements: Parliamentary Scrutiny (17 Nov 2020)

Rob Butler: Businesses in my constituency trade heavily with other nations, and obviously they want to get deals that will enable them to continue to do so as easily as possible, but they also know that deals have to be fair to both parties, whether that is two companies or two countries, so does my right hon. Friend agree that we should stand firm for British interests and not just accept any terms that...

Future of Financial Services (9 Nov 2020)

Rob Butler: Can I warmly welcome the announcement of a sovereign green bond, and may I congratulate my hon.

Rob Butler: The disability employment gap in my constituency is 25.4% and there are concerns that it will widen as the economy suffers from the impact of covid-19. What reassurance can the Minister give me that disabled people will get the specific help they need to find work —for example, through tailored support or the funding of reasonable adjustments on the kickstart scheme?

Prisons (Substance Testing) Bill (16 Oct 2020)

Rob Butler: I rise to speak in support of this excellent Bill, and I must declare my interest: immediately prior to my election, I was a non-executive director of Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service and previously spent four and a half years as a member of the Youth Justice Board.

Rob Butler: Protecting the next generation is a vital part of the work we do in this House, so I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Sevenoaks (Laura Trott) on all her work to introduce the Bill. Much of what needs to be said has been said, so I will not be repetitious. Despite being a Conservative who believes in the free market, I believe that this is an instance where it is absolutely right...

Botulinum Toxin and Cosmetic Fillers (Children) Bill (16 Oct 2020)

Rob Butler: Does my hon. Friend agree that that point is reinforced by the fact that someone now has to be 18 to buy a packet of cigarettes? Someone has to be 18 to inhale something that is potentially toxic, but currently they can be injected with something toxic at a much younger age.

However, events such as lunchtime concerts, craft fairs and civic...

Lord Chancellor’s Oath and the Rule of Law — [Derek Twigg in the Chair] (14 Oct 2020)

Rob Butler: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Twigg. I am not a lawyer, let alone one with the esteemed reputation of other hon. or right hon. Members, nor am I an academic steeped in the study of centuries of history or intricate international treaties. But for 12 years before I was elected, I served as a magistrate and for about 18 months was the magistrate member of the Sentencing...

Covid-19 Update (12 Oct 2020)

Private International Law (Implementation of Agreements) Bill [Lords]: Text of the 2007 Lugano Convention (6 Oct 2020)

Rob Butler: I rise to speak in support of new clause 5 in the name of the Minister, which, on balance, I believe would result in proportionate scrutiny for the measures that would fall under the jurisdiction of the Bill. The general points about the need for international agreements on private international law have been well rehearsed. Without such agreements, there would be a considerable impact on...
