Access to GP Services and NHS Dentistry (21 Jun 2022)

John Redwood: When the Secretary of State does the much-needed manpower review, will he ensure that a fast-growing area such as Wokingham with lots of new houses gets proper provision for that growth? Will the manpower plan also address how we recruit the doctors we have authority to get?

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill ( 8 Jun 2022)

Laura Trott: ...anything about it at the time, so the changes in the Bill are really positive and will make a big difference to local authorities. I echo the comments made by my right hon. Friend the Member for Wokingham (John Redwood) and others about planning inspectors. These people are unelected and unaccountable and we need to do something about them. At the moment, the powers do not rest with local...

Solar Farms and Battery Storage ( 8 Jun 2022)

Matt Rodda: ...plentiful. I want to say a few words about Reading Borough Council’s excellent work over many years of putting solar panels on the roofs of council houses, schools and other public buildings. Wokingham Borough Council was Conservative-run—I am afraid to say to Government Members that it is now under a different administration—when it planned a large solar farm in its area of...

Debate on the Address: [1st day] (10 May 2022)

John Redwood: ...up with my right hon. Friend elsewhere to discuss that because I know you wish me to move on, Madam Deputy Speaker. One last point, if I may, is about housing and planning in my own constituency of Wokingham. We are very generous and we accept a large number of new people joining our communities, as they would like to do. We accept well over 1,000 new houses being constructed in the...

Referral of Prime Minister to Committee of Privileges (21 Apr 2022)

Edward Davey: ...elections; the problem is that if they will not hold this Prime Minister to account, the electorate will have to hold this Prime Minister to account. A constituent of the right hon. Member for Wokingham (John Redwood) tells me that his MP—

National Insurance Contributions (Increase of Thresholds) Bill (24 Mar 2022)

Richard Drax: ...of Members’ Financial Interests. I now have a chance to expand on the question that I raised with those on the Treasury Benches yesterday. When some years ago my right hon. Friend the Member for Wokingham (John Redwood) was asked at a meeting what conservatism stood for, he paused for about one second and said, “Freedom”. That is freedom for the individual, freedom from the state,...

Cost of Living Increases (16 Mar 2022)

Matt Rodda: The Minister is obviously covering a range of issues, both employment and the cost of living for households. As the right hon. Member for Wokingham (John Redwood) mentioned, is now perhaps the right time to look again at the national insurance rise, given the pressure on families and the stalling rate of growth?

Dissolution and Calling of Parliament Bill: Clause 2 - Revival of prerogative powers to dissolve Parliament and to call a new Parliament (14 Mar 2022)

Chris Bryant: ...afraid I was not able to hear the wonderful speeches that doubtless came from those on the Front Bench—well, on the Opposition side anyway. I completely agree with what the right hon. Member for Wokingham (John Redwood) has just said. Yes, I think the people of this country are crying out for a Government who can actually govern. They still were after the general election, and they...

Non-commissioned Exempt Accommodation (23 Feb 2022)

Khalid Mahmood: The issue raised by the right hon. Member for Wokingham (John Redwood) is not right, because once a person comes to an area and offers themselves as a person in need of services, the council has obligations under legislation to provide services. It is not local authorities but the Government who have not sorted this issue out.

Local Government Finance (England) ( 9 Feb 2022)

Kevan Jones: constituency—there is at least one castle, which may well be in the higher tax bracket—but there are very few higher band properties across County Durham. That should be compared that with Wokingham in Surrey, where only 2.8% of properties are in band A, so if it raises council tax by 1% it generates £8.9 million. Add to that the fact that we are not just moving that money to areas...

Police Grant Report ( 9 Feb 2022)

Kevan Jones: ...push the emphasis onto the local council tax payer. Why is this a particular problem for County Durham? The root of it is that 58% of the properties in County Durham are in council tax band A. In Wokingham, in Surrey, only 2.8% are in band A. So, if the precept for policing in County Durham is increased by 1%, it will raise £3.8 million, whereas in Surrey, it raises £8.9 million....

Cost of Living and Food Insecurity ( 8 Feb 2022)

Peter Grant: ...and forcefully the impact on real human beings of the failures of this Conservative Government. It was so farcical as to be really comical, if it was not so tragic, that the right hon. Member for Wokingham (John Redwood), who is no longer in his place, asked the Minister to agree that cutting food miles was a good idea, yet a Minster from the same Department a couple of weeks ago thought...

Oil and Gas Producers: Windfall Tax ( 1 Feb 2022)

Greg Hands: ...of UK production over the period to 2030, which puts the sector on a path to deliver a net zero basin by 2050. I turn to the contributions in the debate itself. My right hon. Friend the Member for Wokingham (John Redwood) made an excellent speech. He said: please can we burn our own gas, rather than importing it? That is a really strong point, not just in terms of jobs in this country but...

Advanced Research and Invention Agency Bill: Clause 2 - ARIA’s functions (31 Jan 2022)

George Freeman: ...scrutiny will be in the framework agreement. This includes requiring an internal evaluation framework for ARIA programmes—that deals with the point made by my right hon. Friend the Member for Wokingham (John Redwood)—and looking at, for example, their expected benefits and alignment with the organisation’s strategic objectives. It also includes setting the terms on which ARIA...

Product Security and Telecommunications Infrastructure Bill (26 Jan 2022)

Nadine Dorries: ...both rural and urban settings—something that, I am sure, will welcomed in all parts of the House. We will take away that community disruption. In response to my right hon. Friend the Member for Wokingham (John Redwood), I will take away his point about cables being laid under roads. In the area where I live, it is done under the pavement right outside my house. I would imagine that...

Charter for Budget Responsibility and Welfare Cap (10 Jan 2022)

John Glen: to vote simply to increase its level. I want to turn now to some of the substantive points made in the debate. I do not recognise the characterisation by my right hon. Friend the Member for Wokingham (John Redwood) of this debate as a “Maastricht tribute debate”, but I do recognise his enthusiasm for growth and his desire to target growth. That is obviously a critical element of...

Nuclear Energy (Financing) Bill: New Clause 1 - Report on proposed payments to a nuclear administrator or relevant licensee nuclear company (10 Jan 2022)

Greg Hands: ...court. There is already an appropriate level of transparency through the court process for the transfer. I will now deal with other points raised in the debate. My right hon. Friend the Member for Wokingham (John Redwood) asked about new supply, particularly in relation to gas, which is not on the face of the Bill. I can tell him that six new gas fields came on stream in the last quarter...
