Education and Local Government (14 Jan 2020)

Jonathan Edward Gullis: “Ay Up Duck” is how I should start, Madam Deputy Speaker, and I hope my hon. Friend the Member for Stoke-on-Trent South (Jack Brereton) will be happy with my pronunciation. May I start by saying what an honour and a privilege it is to make my maiden speech today, and to represent the people of Stoke-on-Trent North, Kidsgrove and Talke? I could not be prouder to serve and, as I said to...

Members Sworn (17 Dec 2019)

Lindsay Hoyle: ...again tomorrow at 11.30. I propose to be in the Chair for swearing in tomorrow from 11.30 until 1.30, to return at 2 until 4, and again from 4.30 until 5.45, with a later session if necessary. I hope that, by the end of tomorrow afternoon, we will have made sufficient progress to enable all Members to swear in who wish to do so. However, if required, we will sit for swearing in at 2...

Tributes to the Speaker (31 Oct 2019)

Christopher Chope: ..., in the absence of a written constitution, the procedures of the House are our constitution. That is something that you have taken very much to heart over recent weeks and months, Mr Speaker. I hope that nothing that has happened in that period will cause pressure to build for a written constitution, because that would deprive us of those flexibilities. You have obviously been a really...

Gujarati Community in the UK (30 Oct 2019)

Alison Thewliss: It is a pleasure to see you in the Chair, Sir Christopher. I pay huge tribute to the hon. Member for Harrow East (Bob Blackman) for again bringing us a debate that allows us to think about the many cultures that bring us together as a society, and about their contribution and the special place that each of them has. I thank him very much for his efforts to do that. He set out very well the...

Prime Minister’s Statement: European Union (Withdrawal) Acts (19 Oct 2019)

Christopher Chope: ...2019. The motions we debated today covered two different Acts and two different provisions, but I understand that the motion down for debate on Monday relates only to the 2018 Act, so it seems—I hope that you will be able to consider this over the weekend—that it cannot be regarded as the same issue that we dealt with today. I hope that you will be able to take such matters into account.

Debate on the Address: Public Services (16 Oct 2019)

Paul Beresford: ...gates at our airports. A considerable proportion of the people who might have brought their expertise to the UK transferred their interest to nations such as Canada and America, and we lost out. I hope that we will now broaden our intake to include those countries under the new system, attracting the people who we need. Let me now raise a second and parochial point. I am delighted by the...

Imprisonment of Catalan Leaders (15 Oct 2019)

Christopher Pincher: ...colleagues. I note that Members of the Scottish nationalist party are here in force. I welcome them back from their conference and am sorry that they have had to sojourn for this urgent question. I hope that in the future we will be able to find an accommodation to allow them to have their conference without interference from the activities in this Chamber. As for the right to debate...

Backbench Business: Sanctions Policy and Implementation — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (3 Oct 2019)

Andrew Murrison: ...we need to read much further, although I did, last night. I read it in great depth and detail to know where the Foreign Affairs Committee is coming from. Since the report, a lot has happened and I hope in my remarks to be able to persuade my hon. Friend of that. I apologise that the Minister for Europe and the Americas, my right hon. Friend the Member for Tamworth (Christopher Pincher),...

Park Home Residents: Legal Protection (1 Oct 2019)

Christopher Chope: ...am most grateful to everyone who has participated in the debate, because it has shown that we regard the issue as a high priority. In the end, government and legislation are all about priorities. I hope that, because of the debate, the Department will start to draft some legislation. As we know, when the current Transport Secretary was the Housing Minister, he was told that there was no...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Venezuela: Politics and Government (5 Sep 2019)

Christopher Pincher: ...and internationally, we are working closely with like-minded partners to achieve a peaceful resolution to the current crisis and a return to democracy and unimpeded access for humanitarian aid. We hope that this, along with sanctions regimes imposed by the EU, the US and Canada, will encourage Nicolas Maduro to re-enter Norwegian-brokered negotiations with the Opposition in good faith.

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill: Duties in connection with the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union (4 Sep 2019)

Christopher Chope: ...a colony. It treats the UK as though we had been vanquished in war, by giving the EU the power to dictate the terms of our surrender. I despair at the defeatism of so many of my colleagues, and I hope that we will fight back and win in a general election, for which I cannot wait.

Suicide Risk Assessment Tools in the NHS — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (4 Sep 2019)

Nadine Dorries: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Christopher. After 10 years of being a Chair myself, I hope I do not incur your wrath today. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Thirsk and Malton (Kevin Hollinrake) for securing this important debate. It is an honour for me to take up the position as Minister with responsibility for suicide prevention. My predecessor, my hon. Friend...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Amazon Forest Fires (3 Sep 2019)

Christopher Pincher: I hope that the hon. Lady will not think that my response is in any way macho. My concern is to make sure that the trade with our two countries prospers and that the Mercosur arrangement succeeds. It will result in the removal of something like 91% of present tariffs. That can only be to the benefit of Brazilian farmers and to the benefit of the Brazilian economy. If we help to ensure that...

EEA Nationals (Indefinite Leave to Remain) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (19 Jul 2019)

the Bishop of Rochester: ...French Hospital. It is an alms house-type foundation established for those of Huguenot descent. After it was bombed out of its previous premises in the 1940s, a predecessor of mine, the late Bishop Christopher Chavasse, who was himself connected with that community, found premises for it in Rochester—and that is where it remains. That building, which I walk past several times a week, is...
