Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill ( 3 Jul 2023)

Stephen Crabb: My hon. Friend is right: it is a Palestinian-led movement. When we consider the individuals and organisations—Palestinian and otherwise—at the root of it, we can see that the movement is deeply problematic. I do not believe that any Conservative should be identifying and aligning themselves with any aspect of the BDS movement. I welcome the legislation. I welcome, too, the fact that the...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill ( 3 Jul 2023)

Stephen Crabb: The hon. Lady is speaking really well, and she gave a remarkable Second Reading speech on the Holocaust Memorial Bill. The hon. Lady is trying to suggest that examples of BDS are few and far between, and that it is a legitimate field of activity for public bodies to comment on foreign policy and express ethical concerns. The trouble is, time and time again, it is about BDS and it is about...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill ( 3 Jul 2023)

Stephen Crabb: I am grateful to my right hon. Friend for giving way so soon in this debate. Is not the reason every single Conservative Member stood on a manifesto commitment to bring forward such legislation that we understand that there is something fundamentally illiberal, leftist and with deep, ugly connections to antisemitism at the heart of the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement? That is what...

Home Department: Antisocial Behaviour ( 3 Jul 2023)

Stephen Crabb: Does my right hon. and learned Friend agree that some of the principal victims of antisocial behaviour are young people? The Government are absolutely right to bring forward new measures to tackle antisocial behaviour to make our streets, parks and public spaces safer for the vast majority of young people who do not engage in those negative behaviours.

Holocaust Memorial Bill: Committal (28 Jun 2023)

Stephen Crabb: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Holocaust Memorial Bill: Committal (28 Jun 2023)

Stephen Crabb: My hon. Friend said that he was going to speak in support of the Father of the House’s amendments, but I am afraid that the points he is making belong to the debate that we had on Second Reading about the principles behind the Bill. It is quite wrong for him to try to return to the arguments that we made earlier this afternoon, when there was strong support from both sides of the House for...

Holocaust Memorial Bill (28 Jun 2023)

Stephen Crabb: I rise to support the Bill, and I speak as vice-chair of the all-party group on the holocaust memorial. I think that this is long overdue. It is taking too long to make progress on this important project. It is a project of real significance for us as a nation, as has been demonstrated on several occasions already during the debate. When we talk about the holocaust and the suffering—I made...

Holocaust Memorial Bill (28 Jun 2023)

Stephen Crabb: My hon. Friend is making an intelligent speech, and she speaks with authority as the local Member of Parliament. When she talks about the loss of the park, is she talking about the temporary disruption caused by the construction phase? My understanding is that the park will remain. It will still be there in perpetuity for local people, but there will be a modest reduction in its size as a...

Holocaust Memorial Bill (28 Jun 2023)

Stephen Crabb: My right hon. Friend is making a very effective and powerful speech in support of the Bill. The point he has just made about the proximity of the memorial and learning centre to this institution is exactly right. Does he agree with me that, when we talk about the holocaust and the horrors of the past, it is not just something that happened to other people over there; it is actually part of...

Business of the House (22 Jun 2023)

Stephen Crabb: I thank the Leader of the House for confirming the Second Reading debate next Wednesday on the Holocaust Memorial Bill, which will facilitate the holocaust memorial to be built in Victoria Tower Gardens. Does she agree that that is a good opportunity for Members from across the House to work together to deliver this memorial, which is a commitment of successive Governments and will be a...

Treasury: Hospitality Businesses (20 Jun 2023)

Stephen Crabb: A great many of the new job opportunities and career paths being created in Pembrokeshire are in the tourism and hospitality sector. Does my hon. Friend agree that the very last thing that business people who are creating those growth opportunities need right now is a tourism tax of the kind being brought forward by the Welsh Labour Government in Cardiff, which will hit businesses with new...

Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Levelling-up Fund: Delivery of Funds ( 5 Jun 2023)

Stephen Crabb: Given the soaring costs in the construction sector, many local authorities, including Pembrokeshire County Council in my constituency, will find it a real challenge to meet the full scope of their successful levelling-up bids. I know that the Minister has been proactive in reaching out to councils, but can she assure the House that she and her team will continue to provide all possible...

Wales: Energy-intensive Industries: Decarbonisation (24 May 2023)

Stephen Crabb: The industrial corridor that runs west along south Wales all the way to my constituency is one of the most important in the UK. It is also one of the most challenging when it comes to decarbonisation. Does my hon. Friend agree that the Government’s policies, the “Powering Up Britain” set of energy interventions and the Celtic freeport that we have secured point the way to a successful...

Energy Security and Net Zero: Green Industries: Jobs (23 May 2023)

Stephen Crabb: The Government’s plans for strengthening our energy security and reaching net zero have the potential to create tens of thousands of jobs in many of our communities. Does the Minister agree that the further education sector has a crucial role to play in unlocking new roles in engineering, technical and project management? The list goes on. Will he join me in commending Pembrokeshire...

Energy Bill [Lords] ( 9 May 2023)

Stephen Crabb: The Secretary of State is being incredibly generous with his time. On this point about vital fuel resilience, is he aware there is significant concern among refiners and other companies in this space about the breadth of the provisions in the Bill and the powers of direction that the Secretary of State could have over these companies? They have concerns around the commercial and competitive...

Treasury: Inflation and Economic Growth Forecasts: G7 Countries ( 9 May 2023)

Stephen Crabb: My hon. Friend is right to ignore the gloom and negativity coming from the Opposition Benches. They will always find a reason to talk down the British economy. Is it not the case that today, with more people in our country going out to work than ever before, our economy is demonstrating a dynamism and resilience that few other economies around the world can emulate and a dynamism that we do...

UK Concussion Guidelines for Grassroots Sport ( 2 May 2023)

Stephen Crabb: Nothing will instil confidence in the important message of “If in doubt, sit them out” more than for grassroots players, particularly youngsters, to see elite-level players adhering to the strictest head injury protocols. Sadly, we have seen too many coaches, referees, on-pitch medics and game administrators turning a blind eye, cutting corners and ignoring the protocols. Will the...

Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Israel and Palestine ( 2 May 2023)

Stephen Crabb: Aside from the violent incidents that my right hon. Friend has referred to, does he agree that the fact that more than 1 million worshippers were able to visit the Temple Mount during Ramadan and that the month of April saw the great festivals of Easter, Passover and Ramadan being celebrated so freely throughout Israel marks Israel out as a remarkable example of religious freedom and...

Gambling Act Review White Paper (27 Apr 2023)

Stephen Crabb: I welcome the tone that the Secretary of State is striking today. Tackling problem gambling and, in particular, protecting vulnerable people is, of course, essential. Does she recognise that the gambling industry, whether it is to everyone’s taste or not, has a symbiotic relationship with grassroots sport in this country, and not just horse- racing? What steps is she going to take to ensure...

Water Quality: Sewage Discharge (25 Apr 2023)

Stephen Crabb: I support ambitious targets for reducing sewage discharges; I support stronger regulation of the water companies; I support stricter enforcement and penalties for water companies found guilty of discharging sewage into our waterways. That is why I support the Government’s very clear and practical plan, which sets us on a course to achieve all those aims. This issue matters to me and to my...
