Upcoming Business – Commons: Main Chamber (18 Mar 2022)

Dogs (DNA Databases) Bill: Second Reading – Andrew Griffith. Private Members' Bills

Aukus (16 Sep 2021)

Andrew Griffith: Will the Prime Minister accept the thanks of the House for deepening collaboration with some of our oldest allies and putting flesh on the bones of global Britain? In that vein, will he join me in welcoming to London Mohamed bin Zayed to not only deepen further links, but unleash economic benefits as well as tackling issues such as defence, climate change and regional instability?

Petition - Proposed Heath Common development (15 Sep 2021)

Andrew Griffith: I rise to present a petition on behalf of my constituents in Arundel and South Downs, particularly those in Storrington, Sullington, Washington and West Chiltington. More than 580 people—nearly every resident in the Rock Road area—have signed. I present this petition on the proposed Heath Common development. The petition states: The petition of residents of Arundel and South Downs,...

Health and Social Care Levy Bill (14 Sep 2021)

Andrew Griffith: I pay tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Rushcliffe (Ruth Edwards) for her remarks. My constituency has a disproportionately older demographic—those who live there are 50% more likely to be over 65 than the national average—but I want to lay to rest the misperception on both sides of the House that social care is simply about the older generation. More than one in three people in...

Health and Social Care Levy Bill (14 Sep 2021)

Andrew Griffith: My hon. Friend, as ever, makes an important point. We should be on a quest for consensus, and it would be useful to hear more from Opposition Members in the wind-ups. I pay tribute to the many dedicated workers in care homes across my constituency as well as their residents—from Barlavington Manor in the north to Valerie Manor in the south and from Villa Adastra in the east to Westergate...

Andrew Griffith: rose—

Health and Social Care Levy Bill (14 Sep 2021)

Andrew Griffith: I am just wondering whether the hon. Gentleman’s tax primer in low corporate taxes has enlightened him with any ideas of his own as to how his party would propose to fund this. The proposal on the table is a broad-based tax. How would he fund this?

Business of the House (22 Jul 2021)

Andrew Griffith: Does the Leader of the House agree that, while it is rightly a matter for the Boundary Commission, it is important that constituencies reflect the history and geography of this great nation? Let me highlight just one example—the communities of Pulborough, Coldwaltham and Amberley. Despite being in the Arun valley and sometimes sitting literally in the middle of that river when it floods, as...

Nationality and Borders Bill: [1st Allocated Day] (19 Jul 2021)

Andrew Griffith: The hon. Gentleman talks about conflict and suffering and, of course, we deplore that on both sides of the House, but I am not aware that that conflict and suffering are in France. Much as I deplore many aspects of French civilisation, including its attitude to the monarchy, France is in the G7, the G20 and a founder member of the United Nations, so I do not understand why he feels that we...

Nationality and Borders Bill: [1st Allocated Day] (19 Jul 2021)

Andrew Griffith: Will he just clarify whether, in his view, France is a safe country?

Backbench Business: Planning — [Judith Cummins in the Chair] (15 Jul 2021)

Andrew Griffith: It is a pleasure to speak with you in the Chair, Mrs Cummins, as I join the debate from here in West Sussex. I join others in congratulating my hon. Friend the Member for Isle of Wight (Bob Seely) on securing the debate. I welcome that, as much as some may try to make it so, this is not a party political matter. We know that the Lib Dems’ housing policy is for an identical 300,000 homes,...

Transport Decarbonisation (14 Jul 2021)

Andrew Griffith: I commend the Secretary of State for today’s announcement. Does he agree that it is the work of business that is providing the solution to these problems, from the fabulous endeavour and effort going into the Jet Zero Council to Electric Avenue, at that former fount of petrol heads that the Under-Secretary of State for Transport, my hon. Friend the Member for Redditch (Rachel Maclean),...

Dogs (DNA Databases) (7 Jul 2021)

Andrew Griffith: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to require dog keepers to register a dog’s DNA on a database; to make provision about such databases and about the information held on them; and for connected purposes. There are not many days when we in this House can bring joy to so many families and individuals, fight crime, improve biosecurity, help the UK’s leadership in animal...

EU Settlement Scheme (29 Jun 2021)

Andrew Griffith: Although I welcome the fact that so many citizens of the EU are voting with their feet—and they are welcome here—could my hon. Friend explain how previous Governments left us in a situation where an estimate of 3.8 million applications has turned into an actual figure of 5.6 million, without a single word of contrition? What a failure of the state.

English Wine Week (23 Jun 2021)

Andrew Griffith: It is a great pleasure to talk about the success story that is English wine in English Wine Week, but I am happy to expand the designation to Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. My constituency, Arundel and South Downs, has one of the largest collections of vineyards in the United Kingdom, with a combined 309 hectares. Vineyards making up that hectarage are among some of the best in the...

English Wine Week (23 Jun 2021)

Andrew Griffith: I thank my hon. Friend for that eminent suggestion. As we know, the only thing better than half a litre of English sparkling wine is a full litre, but why would we seek to deprive choice to the consumer? Perhaps the Minister and her colleagues will pick that up when she responds. Wine, as we know, has a long history on this island, having been introduced by the Romans. By the time of the...

English Wine Week (23 Jun 2021)

Andrew Griffith: I thank the hon. Gentleman for reminding us of the importance of the single internal market. I would be delighted to promote his Echlinville gin to my constituents in Arundel and South Downs. I was talking about awards and the quality of our English products. In recent months, Nyetimber—another vineyard in my constituency—won four awards at the 2020 Champagne and Sparkling Wine World...

English Wine Week (23 Jun 2021)

Andrew Griffith: My hon. Friend makes a fantastic point. I look forward to consuming Yorkshire’s Lass or Yorkshire’s Lad. We should certainly support our small producers in what is, as I will go on to say, a growing industry in the United Kingdom. A number of other colleagues have joined me to talk about the wine estates in their constituencies. My hon. Friend the Member for Buckingham (Greg Smith) has...

English Wine Week (23 Jun 2021)

Andrew Griffith: I thank my hon. Friend for his endorsement of the health benefits of sparkling wine, and I am sure he himself is a sparkling example of that as well. In the long term, I am confident that such a change in taxation would be a good deal for the Chancellor. Another current issue that the wine industry in Britain is facing is the lack of seasonal workers able to come over and help with the...
