Defending the UK and Allies (15 Jan 2024)

Stephen Crabb: The International Atomic Energy Agency recently confirmed that Iran is once again ramping up its uranium enrichment activity to near weapons grade, so in welcoming today’s statement and the action we have taken, I also urge my right hon. Friend to give the House his assurance that he and his counterparts among our allies are not losing sight of the really big question about whether Iran...

Home Department: Reducing Migration (15 Jan 2024)

Stephen Crabb: It is good that the Government want to ensure that the brightest and best can continue to come to the UK to study, but does my right hon. Friend recognise that the changes to the family dependant rules for students risk causing enormous damage to some of our elite business schools, which compete in the global marketplace for experienced, outstanding professionals? What work is he doing with...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill (10 Jan 2024)

Stephen Crabb: My right hon. Friend is making some extremely important points about the nature of the BDS movement. Is it not the case that, as he says, there have been very few examples of councils looking to use the levers available to them to protest against other international issues? Is that not because the whole BDS movement—in fact, the label “BDS”—has been entirely constructed as a weapon...

Israel and Palestine ( 8 Jan 2024)

Stephen Crabb: Regarding the South African application into the International Court of Justice, our US allies have described it as “meritless, counterproductive and completely without any basis in fact”. The Irish Prime Minister also appears to have distanced himself from it. Will my right hon. Friend say a bit more about his view on that application at the ICJ? Does he agree that using terms such as...

Transport: Rail Services (14 Dec 2023)

Stephen Crabb: So many families in Pembrokeshire have sons and daughters working away or studying all over the country who will want to get home this Christmas. With such poor rail services into Wales, what assurances has the Minister had from companies such as Great Western Railway that they will stop putting on five-carriage trains when they should be running 10 carriages; that they will have a full...

Road Humps and 20 mph Speed Limits — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] ( 5 Dec 2023)

Stephen Crabb: My right hon. Friend is making a very strong argument. A great many people in Pembrokeshire and elsewhere have a lot of sympathy for slower traffic speeds, particularly in built-up areas outside schools, for example. However, does my right hon. Friend agree that the Welsh Labour Government have made two mistakes? They have got themselves into such a mess with their default, blanket 20 mph...

Stephen Crabb: What recent assessment he has made of the effectiveness of the levelling-up fund at distributing funding across all parts of the UK.

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

Stephen Crabb: With new money helping Pembrokeshire County Council to regenerate Haverfordwest town centre, with community ownership funding enabling the villagers of Hayscastle Cross to save their local pub, and with new investment in Visit Pembrokeshire to improve accessibility for tourists visiting the county, does the Minister agree that, compared with the clunky, difficult-to-access EU funding schemes,...

Energy Security and Net Zero: Inflation Reduction Act and Low Carbon Industries (28 Nov 2023)

Stephen Crabb: Last week, the Chancellor’s autumn statement included an important commitment on the Government’s part to bring forward legislation to modernise the Crown Estate’s investment and borrowing powers, which is a vital step for deploying 16 GW of floating offshore wind in the Celtic sea. That will benefit the whole of Wales, and we hope in particular my constituency and the port of Milford...

Autumn Statement Resolutions - Rates of Tobacco Products Duty (27 Nov 2023)

Stephen Crabb: I rise to make a few remarks in support of the Chancellor’s autumn statement, emphasising two themes that came out strongly from it. They have been consistent themes for the Government over the past 13 years we have been in office: boosting incomes, particularly for those in the lowest income brackets, and improving our benefits system to ensure that we have a dynamic labour market and...

Autumn Statement Resolutions - Rates of Tobacco Products Duty (27 Nov 2023)

Stephen Crabb: The hon. Member makes a strong point on behalf of his party. Lots of people claim credit for the triple lock. Again, all of us who defend the triple lock need to bear in mind the long-term costs and be ready to speak to how the country will afford them. The answer that successive Governments have found of just pushing the state pension further out of reach by increasing the state pension age...

Autumn Statement Resolutions - Rates of Tobacco Products Duty (27 Nov 2023)

Stephen Crabb: I agree with my right hon. Friend to a point. There is always an issue of fairness, and perceived fairness, when it comes to the distribution of taxpayers’ money to people. I question whether there are large numbers of people out there who want to live their lives not working or contributing to our society. If I really press them, the people I meet in my constituency who are struggling with...

Autumn Statement Resolutions - Rates of Tobacco Products Duty (27 Nov 2023)

Stephen Crabb: I am grateful to my right hon. Friend for giving way. Let me return to the record of the past 13 years. At various points in that time, there has been no shortage of people in this House and outside who have been very quick to predict an explosion in unemployment—whether that was when we were introducing the public spending restraint under the coalition Government or when we were coming...
