Post Office Horizon: Compensation and Legislation (26 Feb 2024)

Sammy Wilson: I thank the Minister for the urgency he has brought to trying to resolve this terrible injustice. It seems that this has been against resistance from within the Post Office, where an attempt is still being made to cover up the negligence and incompetence of the management. May I take him back to the points he has made about this legislation applying to Northern Ireland? I am not convinced of...

Situation in the Red Sea (26 Feb 2024)

Sammy Wilson: I assure the Minister that he has the full—not tentative—support of DUP Members for the actions he has taken, because as he has pointed out, what is happening will affect businesses and consumers in the UK through inflation and the inability to get supplies. However, those effects are not limited to the UK; almost every European nation relies on those shipping lanes being kept open. Why...

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: British Residents' Society of North Cyprus (22 Feb 2024)

Sammy Wilson: To ask the Minister of State, Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, on how many occasions the British High Commissioner to Cyprus has held discussions with the British Residents Society in Northern Cyprus since his appointment in August 2022; and if he will publish unredacted minutes of those discussions.

Written Answers — Northern Ireland Office: Public Finance: Northern Ireland (21 Feb 2024)

Sammy Wilson: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, what his planned timetable is for the Northern Ireland Assembly to bring forward revenue raising proposals.

Offshore Petroleum Licensing Bill: Clause 1 - Duty to invite applications for offshore licences (20 Feb 2024)

Sammy Wilson: May I first say that we fully support the Bill and the objectives that have been set? As has been said time and again during the debate, we will require oil and gas for decades—and it may as well be British oil and gas, because that means jobs in Britain, tax revenue, and reducing our imports. If we are to continue to use oil, there are very good reasons why we should give licences for its...

Offshore Petroleum Licensing Bill: Clause 1 - Duty to invite applications for offshore licences (20 Feb 2024)

Sammy Wilson: Was the hon. Member as confused as I was by the answer given by the hon. Member for Angus (Dave Doogan): that somehow or other there is no need for a licence to drill for oil to create and protect oil jobs, and that we can protect oil jobs by not extracting any oil from the ground?

Offshore Petroleum Licensing Bill: Clause 1 - Duty to invite applications for offshore licences (20 Feb 2024)

Sammy Wilson: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Death of Alexei Navalny (19 Feb 2024)

Sammy Wilson: The whole House should be worried about developments such as those at the weekend with the murder of Navalny because the Russian state, now run by a bunch of criminals, seems arrogant enough to assassinate opposition people outside its own boundaries, invade nations, threaten other nations and now suppress democracy in its own country. It is disappointing that the Minister is saying today...

Post Office Governance and Horizon Compensation Schemes (19 Feb 2024)

Sammy Wilson: I think the public squabble at the weekend further undermines people’s confidence in what is going to happen and in the Government’s assurances about compensating the people affected by the Post Office scandal. I tend to believe the view of the Secretary of State, simply because the record of Post Office officials trying to cover up, pass the buck and cause confusion is on the record,...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Motorcycles: Carbon Emissions (19 Feb 2024)

Sammy Wilson: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, with reference to the Motorcycle Industry Association's publication entitled Realising the full potential of zero emission powered light vehicles – a joint action plan for Government and industry, published in February 2022 what steps his Department is taking to improve uptake of mopeds.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Meat Products: Preservatives ( 6 Feb 2024)

Sammy Wilson: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, whether she plans to introduce similar restrictions on nitrites in processed meat products to those set out in European Commission Regulation No 231/2012 on food additives nitrites (E 249-250) and nitrates (E 251-252), published on 1 June 2023.

Situation in the Red Sea ( 5 Feb 2024)

Sammy Wilson: The Government are right to have this strong response for what may seem to many to be a faraway war or incident, but which could impact so much on people’s lives here in the United Kingdom, through food shortages, supply chain disruption and inflation. Given the reports about shortages of Royal Navy personnel, the difficulty with munitions, the difficulties with some ships and now the...

United Kingdom Internal Market ( 1 Feb 2024)

Sammy Wilson: Will the Minister give way?

United Kingdom Internal Market ( 1 Feb 2024)

Sammy Wilson: Will the Minister admit to the bottom line, as contained in proposed new section 13C(2)(b) of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018, set out in the draft Windsor Framework (Constitutional Status of Northern Ireland) Regulations 2024, which requires “a statement to the effect that the Minister is unable to make such a statement”— that is, that the Bill in question will not affect...

United Kingdom Internal Market ( 1 Feb 2024)

Sammy Wilson: I will not go over the wide range of what is in the Command Paper or the SI, but will focus on some particular points in the SI. It is well known that I do not support this deal or agreement, and I have given reasons why not. It is important that we have the opportunity to examine the detail of it, and the way that this legislation has been hurried through today has not allowed that...

United Kingdom Internal Market ( 1 Feb 2024)

Sammy Wilson: Perhaps the Minister can tell us what proof companies will have to give and how onerous that proof will be. What will happen where it becomes clear that there is abuse in goods moving through Northern Ireland into GB? It appears—again, if I am misreading this, perhaps the Minister can explain it to me—that proposed new section 45C indicates that guidance will be given to local...
