Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Levelling-up Fund ( 4 Dec 2023)

Sammy Wilson: The Minister will not have too much difficulty assessing the effectiveness of the levelling-up fund in Northern Ireland, because Northern Ireland is the only country in the United Kingdom not to receive one penny in the last round of levelling-up funding. He will not level with the people of Northern Ireland, giving the spurious excuse that, because an Executive has not been formed, he cannot...

Energy Security and Net Zero: Topical Questions (28 Nov 2023)

Sammy Wilson: This year, receipts from the emissions trading scheme will reach a new peak of £6.2 billion. The effects of attacks on energy-intensive industries are felt by workers in the aluminium and steel industries, and this week by workers at Grangemouth, where one of our few remaining oil refineries is going to close. Despite what the Minister said earlier, is it not a fact that, rather than helping...

Israel and Hamas: Humanitarian Pause (27 Nov 2023)

Sammy Wilson: No one would wish to withhold the aid that has been given to the innocent civilians—who, let’s face it, are only suffering because of a war instigated by Hamas terrorists—but does the Minister agree that this cynical drip-feed release of hostages is a further act of terror by Hamas and that the pauses in the fighting will be used by them to regroup and rearm? Will he give me a...

Rates of tobacco products duty (22 Nov 2023)

Sammy Wilson: Let me say first of all that I welcome the Chancellor’s statement. It is good to see that, at long last, the light has come on and he has realised that, “You cannot tax your way to growth,” and that some of the wrong policies that were followed by him, and by the Prime Minister when he was in that post, are now being reversed. All the economic evidence shows that the more you tax people...

Autumn Statement (22 Nov 2023)

Sammy Wilson: Many of the measures in the statement today will have spending consequences that will apply to England and Wales. I welcome many of them, because they are growth measures, such as getting the long-term unemployed and long-term sick into work, helping the creative industries and supporting business rates. Will the Chancellor confirm that those measures will be subject to Barnett consequential...

Levelling Up (20 Nov 2023)

Sammy Wilson: People in Northern Ireland will be angry tonight that not one penny of a fund that the Minister describes as creating opportunities across all regions and nations of the UK, and aimed at tackling regional inequality, is allocated to Northern Ireland. He gives the flimsy excuse that it is because the Northern Ireland Executive are not up and running. The Northern Ireland Executive did not have...

Illegal Immigration (15 Nov 2023)

Sammy Wilson: The Home Secretary and the Government are right to prioritise ending illegal migration. By my count, he spoke six times in his statement about having “a plan”; the only word he left out was “cunning”, because his plans seem to be as workable, effective and chaotic as Baldrick’s in “Blackadder”. That is no laughing matter, because while the plans are not working, there is still...

Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories (14 Nov 2023)

Sammy Wilson: The Minister has rightly pointed out the intolerable human suffering of civilians in Gaza, but does he accept that it is a consequence of the blatant abuse of civilians by Hamas, who have bombed hospitals and used them as bases, denied vital aid, and located arms factories in flats where people are living? As the terrorists are clearly under pressure—they are losing commanders, bases and...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] ( 7 Nov 2023)

Sammy Wilson: I appreciate the fact that you have called me so early in the debate, Madam Deputy Speaker. Despite the fact that Mr Speaker has reset the clock so that it appears that my hon. Friend the Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon) has never spoken in the House—[Laughter.] I have been called before him, so thank you very much for that. May I first, on behalf of the Democratic Unionist party,...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill: New Clause 1 - Impact assessment: trade and diplomatic relations (25 Oct 2023)

Sammy Wilson: I appreciate the remarks that the right hon. Lady is making—she speaks with some authority because of her background—but I fail to see the logic of her point that a Bill that prevents local authorities deliberately highlighting their opposition to the existence of the state of Israel, and boycotting goods from it, is likely to lead to bad community relations. Surely stopping local...

Sammy Wilson: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what recent progress he has made on delivering the Government's dementia moonshot commitment; and what recent estimate he has made of when that commitment will be delivered, in the context of the finding in Alzheimer's Research UK's report entitled Tipping Point: The Future of Dementia, published in September 2023, that every £1...
