Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Boats: Elmbridge (19 Oct 2023)

Dominic Raab: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, how much from the public purse the Environment Agency has spent on enforcement against illegal river moorings in Elmbridge Borough in each of the last five years.

Gaza: Al-Ahli Arab Hospital Explosion (18 Oct 2023)

Dominic Raab: The Foreign Secretary is surely right to say that we must not rush to judgment on this incident, but does he agree that one fact we know right now is that the primary moral, and as a result legal, responsibility for the appalling civilian life loss in Gaza today and in the days ahead lies with Hamas, first for their attack on Israel, and secondly for the systematic practice of using civilians...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill: Clause 148 - Guidance (17 Oct 2023)

Dominic Raab: The Minister is endeavouring to strike the right balance in a tricky area. Does she agree with me, as a former Housing Minister—there are one or two in this place—that actually the most important thing beyond what happens in Westminster is that local authorities get their local plan in place? We have a Liberal Democrat-run council in Elmbridge. It does not have a plan in place and has not...

Energy Supply Market: Small Businesses (13 Sep 2023)

Dominic Raab: My hon. Friend is making an excellent speech. Hon. Members have suggested a range of options, including reducing the energy price for small businesses, but in my constituency I have found that SMEs in particular have looked to turn from being consumers to becoming suppliers by installing renewable sources, for example solar panels. Those would not just reduce bills, but provide extra...

Border Target Operating Model: Food and Biosecurity (13 Sep 2023)

Dominic Raab: My right hon. Friend is making an important speech about the new regime, and much of it is welcome. He has made the point that pests and disease do enormous harm to crops. Maize crops can suffer losses of up to a fifth from any outbreak of pests or disease. I would be interested to know a bit more about what the Government will do on surveillance, because that is the most important way of...

Border Target Operating Model: Food and Biosecurity (13 Sep 2023)

Dominic Raab: My hon. Friend is making an excellent speech, particularly about being joined up. We are talking about the risks, but there are also opportunities for UK businesses. If we get the level playing field right—if we get a post-Brexit regime that not only deals with all the UK concerns and needs but provides a level playing field for businesses here and abroad—it is a great export opportunity...

Security Update (11 Sep 2023)

Dominic Raab: I thank the Deputy Prime Minister for his statement and I support the action that the Government are taking. On the issue of transparency and accountability, will the data regarding the volume of prosecutions and convictions under existing legislation and the new National Security Act be collated and made available to the House so that we can track the scale of hostile state action? Also,...

Backbench Business: UK’s Relationship with Mexico — [James Gray in the Chair] ( 7 Sep 2023)

Dominic Raab: On that point, will my hon. Friend give way?

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Brain Cancer: Research ( 4 Sep 2023)

Dominic Raab: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, how much funding his Department (a) allocated to and (b) spent on research on brain tumours in each year since 2018.

Tata Group Gigafactory Investment (20 Jul 2023)

Dominic Raab: I warmly welcome the Government’s decision and the announcement by Tata, which highlights the UK’s tech potential—

Tata Group Gigafactory Investment (20 Jul 2023)

Dominic Raab: I warmly welcome the Government’s announcement and Tata’s decision, which highlights the tech potential of the UK. Does the Minister agree that our longer-term strategy, as I think she was setting out, is that we will not be able to engage in a bidding war on subsidies with the US, China and the EU, and that our comparative advantage will be shoring up the supply chain in the context of...

Illicit Finance: War in Ukraine (13 Jul 2023)

Dominic Raab: The Government have done an excellent job and shown real leadership on Ukraine. My right hon. Friend mentioned Sweden joining NATO. As important as that is, given its assets—submarines and fighter pilots—it is also telling that the UK and others have persuaded Turkey to remove its veto, coaxing it back into the fold. The truth is that to outlast Putin, we do not just need to rely on the...

Srebrenica Memorial Week — [Sir Robert Syms in the Chair] ( 4 Jul 2023)

Dominic Raab: The right hon. Gentleman is giving a very good speech. He is talking really about the modern-day relevance to us of having staying power in Ukraine. I remember, as a young Foreign Office lawyer, negotiating the UN-UK sentence enforcement agreement for the Balkans in 2004. We had to wait until 2021 for Radovan Karadžić to be sentenced and transferred to a UK jail. Does he agree that we will...

Energy Security and Net Zero: Energy Intensive Industries: Decarbonisation ( 4 Jul 2023)

Dominic Raab: Do Ministers agree that the Government’s competition for small modular nuclear reactors will help provide the volume of energy we need for energy-intensive domestic industries and, over the long term, at a lower cost than previous nuclear power stations?

Holocaust Memorial Bill (28 Jun 2023)

Dominic Raab: I thank the hon. Gentleman for sharing that very personal and compelling account. I agree with everything he said. I think he said it was his grandmother who talked about the living scars in his family. I can say the same from my own experience. My father fled the holocaust with his mother, father and uncle, who have passed away. My grandmother, who was the living testimony in our family,...

Hong Kong National Security Law Anniversary — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (28 Jun 2023)

Dominic Raab: My hon. Friend is giving an excellent speech. I think what he is reaching for and what would be helpful to know from the Government is what we, the Foreign Office or the UK are doing to take action. He has mentioned sanctions. When people are effectively taken as pawns or hostages, the other thing we can and should do—in relation to Beijing, but also Iran, Russia and many other...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: River Thames: Boats (19 May 2023)

Dominic Raab: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what assessment her Department has made of the effectiveness of the Environment Agency’s enforcement of illegal moorings in the non-tidal Thames.

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: River Thames: Boats (19 May 2023)

Dominic Raab: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, whether the Environment Agency shares data on the enforcement of illegal moorings in the non-tidal Thames with her Department; and if her Department will publish that data by local authority area.

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill (17 May 2023)

Dominic Raab: I certainly support the Bill. The Minister is talking about the importance of checks as well as agility in how the CMA operates. It is unclear, and there are different views about, whether AI will increase concentration in the digital and tech sector or increase competition. Is he confident that the CMA will have the tools to deal with whatever effect AI has on the market in five to 10...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill (11 May 2023)

Dominic Raab: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Stone (Sir William Cash) for his question and the Secretary of State for her response. I recognise the balance that she is trying to strike within the timeframe. There is a very large number of EU regulations at the Ministry of Justice, and yet we managed to identify more than 60% that could be either repealed or substantially revised within the...
