I pay tribute to councillors of all political persuasions and none for the...

Andrew Gwynne: ...State not understand the scepticism about his comments, not just from the Select Committee but from many Members on both sides of the House? After all, it was his Department that left bidding for Brexit contingency funding to the very last minute, it was his Department that diverted council funding away from some of the most deprived communities in England, and it was his botched...

Local Government Funding Settlement (13 Dec 2018)

Andrew Gwynne: ...Green Paper on social care. Given the pressures that councils are facing, and the real heartbreak and misery experienced by service users, can he tell us how soon is “soon”? Or is this like the Brexit meaningful vote, whereby no date is ever given? The fact is that social care is in crisis.

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Relief from Non-Domestic Rates) Bill (10 Jul 2017)

Andrew Gwynne: ...that intervention, because, of course, it was not just the Government who did that. I do not know whether she was a remainer or a leaver, but it would be remiss of the House, whatever our views on Brexit, not to acknowledge the involvement of the European Commission in funding some of the roll-out of this infrastructure and technology. It has come not just from the Government but from...

Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill (18 Nov 2016)

Andrew Gwynne: be looked at. Only yesterday, the Government announced their intention to drop proposals aimed at changing the powers of the Lords, citing that the world has changed.

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Topical Questions (2 Nov 2016)

Andrew Gwynne: ...: “We are talking about reducing the number of people we elect at the ballot box, whilst stuffing the House of Lords with yet more people”.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (7 Sep 2016)

Andrew Gwynne: The Prime Minister seems less keen than her predecessor on the northern powerhouse, but she also says that post-Brexit Britain is open for business, so where would be better than the great city of Manchester to host the World Expo in 2025? Where better than the home of the world’s first programmable computer, where the atom was split and where graphene was invented to showcase the best of...

EU Membership: Economic Benefits (15 Jun 2016)

Andrew Gwynne: ...member of the European Union. That money is not going to be there for the NHS. As for immigration, if we have a Norwegian or Swiss-style deal—, of course, none of us actually knows what deal the Brexiteers are proposing—we shall have to accept free movement within the single market. And as for Turkey, we have a veto on Turkish membership, because we are at the table with the other 27...
