Backbench Business: Coventry City Football Club (15 Jan 2019)

It is hugely satisfying to hear why football clubs up and down the country rightly mean so much to...

Modern Slavery Act 2015: Global LGBT Rights (26 Oct 2017)

Mims Davies: To me, Brexit means Brexit. It is not about going back on equality. I feel extremely strongly about that. I mentioned the WHO, which made such a regrettable decision, as my hon. Friend the Member for Ribble Valley mentioned, but I am sure that UK pressure really made a difference in reversing that decision. So, yes, the world does watch us. The Prime Minister’s speech at the PinkNews awards...

Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Mims Davies: ...importantly, intend, to see this continue. It is clear at the outset that the industrial strategy includes nuclear and supports the scientific community through this, and builds on that through Brexit. While the Opposition refuse to accept the public’s decision to leave the European Union, the Government continue to get on with the job of ensuring a responsible withdrawal.

Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Mims Davies: So we can add “oven-ready” to “boil in the bag” Brexit, perhaps; yes, it is the latest example of that important vote. As we heard this evening from my hon. Friend the Member for Corby (Tom Pursglove), what we are doing as we leave the EU really matters in terms of the message we give to our constituents. Those on both sides of the argument are seeing us preparing for what is going...

Bill Presented: Scheduling of Parliamentary Business (17 Jul 2017)

Mims Davies: ...and North Perthshire (Pete Wishart), that voters simply do not want to see this type of debate; they want to hear us discussing what matters, which is jobs, opportunities, schools, the impact of Brexit nationwide and so much more. Interestingly, the hon. Gentleman also mentioned his frustrations with filibustering. The greatest shame tonight is that we will be unable to discuss properly...

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill: Air travel organisers’ licences (11 Jul 2017)

Mims Davies: fantastic news, and I am heading off in about 10 minutes—[Laughter.] Like me, is the Minister wary of committing the Government to something that may adversely impact the industry during the Brexit process? I say that on what is a positive day for my constituency.

Unaccompanied Child Refugees: Business of the House (9 Feb 2017)

Mims Davies: ...women’s day, which is forthcoming in March. Meanwhile, it is lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans history month, and given the utterly false suggestion by some Opposition Members yesterday that Brexit will mean a bonfire of lesbian, gay, transsexual and women’s rights, may we have a debate on this area around Brexit as Hampshire County Council starts to fly the rainbow flag for Hampshire...

Exiting the EU and Transport (23 Nov 2016)

Mims Davies: ...the States of Jersey and Guernsey, about the vital role played by Southampton airport in trading links between those areas and the UK, and we must now consider how we will work with them in a post-Brexit environment. Today’s autumn statement has sought to tackle infrastructure deficit and improve our productivity. We have heard from the Chancellor that Departments will—rightly, in my...

Business of the House (14 Jul 2016)

Mims Davies: One of the reasons why many people voted for Brexit was that they believed it would provide this country and our communities with more opportunity to shape their own futures. May we have a debate, in turn, on a regional strategy for transport infrastructure to sit alongside other provisions such as health and education, so that any additional housing can be sustainable?

Govia Thameslink Rail Service — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (13 Jul 2016)

Mims Davies: ...dangerous. I do not want to over-egg or overhype it, but I have received feedback that people are frightened and concerned. There is an economic case for us to support our businesses. We talk about Brexit and the problems that could affect our businesses, but the reality is that problems are happening now due to this franchise. I ask the Minister for a kind response and to think about all...
