Speaker's Statement: Economic Affairs and Work and Pensions (8 Jun 2010)

Kwasi Kwarteng: ...expansion, and in that context self-starting business men are very important. A gentleman from Shepperton, in my constituency, who has been in the breakage business for 30 years said to me, "Kwasi, it is very difficult. I am getting strangled by red tape and bureaucracy." A Government quango, whose name I shall not mention, had been bombarding him with forms that he had to fill in, so he...

Kwasi Kwarteng: I have been privileged to hear maiden speeches by my hon. Friends the Member for South Thanet (Laura Sandys) and for Hereford and South Herefordshire (Jesse Norman), who illustrated very well the nature of the threats that we face. My hon.

Opposition Day — [1st allotted day]: Industry (Government Support) (16 Jun 2010)

Kwasi Kwarteng: This is the first time I have had the privilege of speaking while you are in the Chair, Mr Deputy Speaker, so I congratulate you on your appointment. We are in a bit of a déjà vu situation. Labour Members cry about Tory cuts, yet they forget why the cuts have to take place. They are suffering from collective amnesia and forgetting that for the last 13 years they ran this country and the...

Building a High-Skilled Economy (17 Jun 2010)

Kwasi Kwarteng: In a debate that took place yesterday, the Minister for Universities and Science pointed out that manufacturing had collapsed even further under the Labour Government than under 18 years of the Conservative Government. I quote from memory, but it went from some 22% to 18% of GDP between 1979 and 1997, and had decreased to some 11% by 2009.

Academies Bill [ Lords ] (19 Jul 2010)

Consolidated Fund (Apppropriation) Bill: Finance Bill (20 Jul 2010)

Kwasi Kwarteng: Those of us who have looked at bond yields will have noticed that the tightening-as it called-of British bonds actually happened in April. That happened as a consequence of the markets being sure that the Labour Government would be voted out, as everyone in the City has mentioned.

Freedom of Information (Amendment): Superannuation Bill (7 Sep 2010)

Kwasi Kwarteng: I am unclear about the hon. Gentleman's position on the status quo. Does he believe that the system is sustainable at current levels, given the economic climate?

Bill Presented: Draft EU Budget 2011 (13 Oct 2010)

Kwasi Kwarteng: Many Conservative Members would broadly agree with my hon. Friend's sentiments; I do not believe there is much division among us on the matter. What practical steps does he think Her Majesty's Government can take to stop the grotesque expansion in the budget?

Opposition Day — [5th Allotted Day]: Housing Benefit (9 Nov 2010)

Kwasi Kwarteng: I am grateful to the hon. Lady for giving way. The House is unclear about Labour's position on the cap. Labour Members have accepted that there is a need for public spending restraint, but Government Members want to know whether they think the cap is fair or not.

European Union Bill (Programme)(No. 2): Clause 1 — Interpretation of Part 1 (24 Jan 2011)

Kwasi Kwarteng: The hon. Gentleman's comments seem to be a diatribe against all referendums anywhere and are not specific to the Bill. Of course a referendum is populist; it is the most direct form of gauging the popular will. The approach of his argument seems a complete waste of time.

European Union Document: Clause 7 — Decisions requiring approval by Act (26 Jan 2011)

Kwasi Kwarteng: My issue with my hon. Friend's eloquent speech is that I do not understand the word "process" that he has been using. We are already under the convention regime. Whether we are in or out of that is a boundary question. He might want to get out, but that is a different debate. Nothing he can do to amend the Bill will fundamentally alter the fact that we are already signed up to the "process".
