Brexit: Common Security and Defence Policy Missions and Operations (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (15 May 2019)

Lord Arbuthnot of Edrom: My Lords, I agree with absolutely every word of what the right reverend Prelate said. He reminds us of what is at stake when we speak of defence, but also of the value of alliances. I draw attention to my interests declared on the register, particularly the fact that I am chairman of the advisory board of Thales UK and chairman of the Information Assurance Advisory Council, a cybersecurity...

NATO Summit 2018 - Motion to Take Note (26 Jun 2018)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: My Lords, I remember many years ago reading in the business pages of some newspaper that when a company or an organisation begins to build a grand, new headquarters, it is time to sell your shares. The noble Lord, Lord Jopling, is suggesting that, although I have to say to him that the record of the British Parliament in taking clear decisions on the renovation of the Palace of Westminster...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (16 Oct 2019)

Lord Campbell of Pittenweem: My Lords, I must begin with the convention of saying what a pleasure it is to follow the noble Lord, Lord Ricketts, albeit some 20 hours after he sat down. Like him and the noble Lord, Lord Kerr of Kinlochard, I propose to address the main part of my remarks to issues of foreign affairs and defence. In the course of his speech, the noble Lord, Lord Ricketts, said that he often felt that his...

Estimates 2013-14 — Ministry of Defence: Defence and Cyber-security (4 Mar 2014)

Crispin Blunt: My hon. Friend, in his usual perspicacious way, has identified precisely what I am moving on to, but before I finish on the wider cyber-security issue, I want to recognise the contribution made by the noble Lady, Baroness Neville-Jones in pulling this strategy together and much improving our country’s response. No strategy, however, is incapable of improvement and the Government still...

Armed Forces — Motion to Take Note (23 Jun 2014)

Lord Astor of Hever: My Lords, we have had a very constructive debate and I am grateful for the excellent contributions from all sides of the House. I will try to deal with some of the points raised by noble Lords and noble and gallant Lords, but I am conscious that I will probably be kept very busy writing letters for the next week or two as there is no way that I can answer all the questions, or indeed...

Economy: Manufacturing — Motion to Take Note (3 Jul 2014)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Wilcox, for enabling this debate. I agree with almost everything that the noble Lord, Lord Monks, and my noble friend Lord Young of Graffham have been saying. There used to be a fashion for suggesting that the decline in UK manufacturing did not matter given the rise of our service economy. In my view, any commentators who still believe that are...

National Spitfire Project — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (28 Mar 2017)

Gerald Howarth: May I say on behalf of all Conservative Members that we are delighted that the hon. Member for East Lothian (George Kerevan) made such a telling case for the Union—not only for the Union of the United Kingdom, but the union of the Kerevan household, in which England and Scotland are clearly united, as they are in my family? My parents, like his, served in the Royal Air Force during the...

Air Traffic Management and Unmanned Aircraft Bill [Lords] (2 Feb 2021)

Jim Shannon: May I first, on behalf of the Democratic Unionist party, offer my sincere condolences to Captain Tom’s daughters and family at a very sad time? Every one of us was inspired by his words when we were all perhaps looking inward and thinking negative thoughts. He inspired us at a time that we really needed it. There was not a morning when we heard him speaking on the television that we did...

RAF Fast Jets (8 Jul 2014)

Angus Robertson: I am grateful for the opportunity to highlight the safety of Royal Air Force fast jets, a subject that concerns the safety of RAF personnel, civilian air traffic and all those who use it, as well as communities under the flight paths of RAF fast jets. At present the RAF operates three types of fast yet: the Hawk trainer, which flies from RAF Valley on Ynys Môn, or Anglesey; the Tornado,...

Business of the House: European Union (Finance) Bill (11 Jun 2015)

Seema Kennedy: I congratulate the hon. Member for East Lothian (George Kerevan) and my hon. Friend the Member for Tonbridge and Malling (Tom Tugendhat) on their excellent maiden speeches today. The greatest prize I won on 8 May was the right to serve. I will do my utmost to repay the trust that the people of South Ribble have put in me. As the first Member of this place of Iranian heritage, I feel a...

Armed Forces Covenant (2 Feb 2017)

Kirsten Oswald: I thank the hon. Member for Berwick-upon-Tweed (Mrs Trevelyan) and the Backbench Business Committee for arranging this debate. In these interesting political times, it is important that issues such as this are not allowed to fall by the wayside. Today’s debate has been interesting and useful, with many considered and thoughtful contributions. I was pleased that my hon. Friend the Member...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (14 Oct 2019)

Tobias Ellwood: That is for another day and another debate, but my hon. Friend is absolutely right. China dominates on a scale that we simply cannot comprehend over here. Its technological capabilities and its investment in quantum computing, and so on, mean it already owns 40% of the world’s data, and it is moving further afield. Once a country moves into the Chinese way of thinking—Huawei, and so...

Summer Adjournment (22 Jul 2004)

Mr John Wilkinson: It is a great pleasure to endorse everything that my hon. Friend the Member for North-East Bedfordshire (Alistair Burt) said in tribute to the maiden speech of the newly elected hon. Member for Birmingham, Hodge Hill (Mr. Byrne). I am sure that he has a promising career in the House. It was good that the hon. Gentleman spoke so warmly of his predecessors, most notably the late Roy Jenkins,...

Defence: Budget — Question for Short Debate (17 Jun 2015)

Earl Howe: My Lords, I thank my noble friend Lord Sterling for giving us the opportunity to debate a topic of fundamental importance for the security and prosperity of this country. He brings to our deliberations a wealth of experience in both business and politics, and I listened to him, as I always do, with the closest attention. However, he has also enabled me, as the new Minister on the block, to...

Bills Presented: Energy Efficiency (30 Jun 2010)

Lorraine Fullbrook: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker, for allowing me to make my maiden speech today. I congratulate you on your new role. I also congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for South Dorset (Richard Drax) and the hon. Member for North Tyneside (Mrs Glindon) on their fascinating and excellent maiden speeches. It is a great honour to be in this Chamber representing the people of the South Ribble...

International Women’S Day: Welsh Affairs (2 Mar 2017)

Alun Cairns: Rwyf yn ddiolchgar i’r Pwyllgor Busnes—I am grateful to the Backbench Business Committee for recognising the importance of holding this debate on Wales near St David’s day and for allocating the time. I pay tribute to the hon. Members for Ynys Môn (Albert Owen), for Ceredigion (Mr Williams) and for Dwyfor Meirionnydd (Liz Saville Roberts) and to my hon. Friend the Member for Gower...

Closures of RAF Scampton and RAF Linton-on-Ouse (16 Oct 2018)

Tobias Ellwood: It is a pleasure to respond to this debate, and I join the others in congratulating the hon. Member for Lincoln (Karen Lee) on securing it. I begin with a declaration of interest. I am a private pilot and I am pleased to say that the last plane I flew was a Typhoon out of RAF Coningsby, which I took through the sound barrier. That is an example of what the hon. Member for Bridgend (Mrs...

Finance (No. 4) Bill (16 Apr 2012)

David Rutley: Let’s keep football out of this. Coming back to the Finance (No. 4) Bill, it is tremendous to have the opportunity to speak in this important debate. Now that we are nearly halfway through this Parliament, it is important to think about our direction of travel. It is clear that under this Government, Britain has returned to economic credibility, and is laying the foundation for private...

Gavin Williamson: Ministry of Defence (MOD) direct spending with industry supports 115,000 jobs throughout the UK. Our investment in training benefits both defence and the wider UK economy. The Armed Forces are one of the largest apprenticeship providers with over 20,000 personnel on our apprenticeship programme.
