Backbench Business: Clinical Trials and Clinical Research Capability — [David Hanson in the Chair] (23 May 2019)

Chris Green: This debate has been very positive on both sides of the Chamber. We see the challenges ahead with Brexit. We do not know at the moment when, if or how we will leave, but all of us in the Chamber and more widely across the country recognise the immense contribution that our scientific community makes, whether that involves the private sector, academia or our fantastic charitable research...

Backbench Business: Clinical Trials and Clinical Research Capability — [David Hanson in the Chair] (23 May 2019)

Chris Green: Does the Minister understand my concern that, although many people from the life sciences sector are involved in Parliament in one way or another and visit it, and are aware of what Brexit means and the challenges around it, for many people in the sector, which is very international in its nature and supportive of remaining in the EU, information about what the Government are doing and their...

Backbench Business: Clinical Trials and Clinical Research Capability — [David Hanson in the Chair] (23 May 2019)

Chris Green: ...leader in research and development and, because of the excellence in the UK, we receive disproportionate funding from the European Union. Does the hon. Lady share my concern, and agree that, post Brexit, the UK Government need to maintain that enhanced level of funding?

Backbench Business: Clinical Trials and Clinical Research Capability — [David Hanson in the Chair] (23 May 2019)

Chris Green: ..., and to any ongoing research projects beyond the end of that programme. However, we do not yet know whether the United Kingdom will participate in Horizon Europe, either fully or partly, post Brexit. That is a huge concern to so many people from the scientific community, as it is for many sectors and industries, not only because we want investment in buildings and laboratories and the...

EU Exit Preparations: Ferry Contracts (5 Mar 2019)

Chris Green: Assuming that the hon. Gentleman wishes to respect democracy and therefore to deliver on the Brexit decision of the British people, may I ask what plans he has to ensure that life-saving, life-enhancing medicines will cross the English channel post-Brexit?

Seaborne Freight (11 Feb 2019)

Chris Green: this debate may think that the greatest of catastrophes has happened, but all this debate really reveals is the Conservatives’ support for innovation, for small business and for delivering on Brexit, and the Opposition’s opposition to that.

Education Committee: Antisocial Behaviour (7 Feb 2019)

Chris Green: a strong feeling locally that there needs to be a fairer distribution of policing resources. The hon. Member for Kingston upon Hull North was right to put getting this right in the context of Brexit. After Brexit, antisocial behaviour and law and order more generally is the single most commonly raised issue. Brexit will hopefully be done and dusted in a matter of weeks, but antisocial...

International Trade: UK Tech Sector Investment (7 Feb 2019)

Friend agree that the work being done to prepare for our post-Brexit future will deliver a superb collaboration with Israel that will help further strengthen the UK as a technological hub?

Business of the House (Today): No Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (16 Jan 2019)

Chris Green: ..., we will be telling them, “Your vote was wrong; get it right the second time.” That is repugnant, and it would be deeply damaging to our democracy. I urge the Government to focus on delivering Brexit, to focus on delivering on 29 March, and to use the days that we have left as an opportunity to secure the best possible deal from the European Union; but on 29 March, we must leave.

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [6th Allotted Day] (10 Jan 2019)

Chris Green: From what I can see, there would be three options. Remain would definitely be on the ballot paper, even though it was rejected decisively first time around. A World Trade Organisation-rules Brexit would probably also be on it, as would the Prime Minister’s withdrawal agreement. In that referendum, the Brexit withdrawal agreement and WTO options could get 33% of the vote each, while...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [6th Allotted Day] (10 Jan 2019)

Chris Green: ...the hon. Lady is saying is that she has no confidence in the Labour party to champion the cause of the British people on workers’ rights or environmental standards. There should surely be a post-Brexit competition between Labour and the Conservatives on championing those causes, and any political party wanting to slash standards would be condemned by the British people. She should have...

Petition - Universal Credit Roll Out: British Exports (20 Nov 2018)

Chris Green: for trade has been towards bringing down barriers? When we joined the EEC in 1973, the barriers were much more substantial. The European Union ought to seek an opportunity to maintain, post Brexit, the zero barriers that we currently have.

Nursery Sector: Sustainability — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (10 Oct 2018)

Chris Green: ...have closed; in my constituency others feel under threat and are eating into their reserves. I welcome the Minister’s comments; I know he will take away our concerns. I was surprised there was a Brexit angle in this debate—it seems to get everywhere. I hope he will take every opportunity with the Chancellor in the run-up to the Budget. Question put and agreed to. Resolved, That this...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: University Research: Commercialisation (17 Jul 2018)

Chris Green: ...excellent example of how the UK can benefit from sharing innovation and technology. What more will my hon. Friend do to ensure that we continue to strengthen academic networks and communities post Brexit?

UK-Israel Trade — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Chris Green: ...£85 million since it was established, and it has helped to boost the UK economy by an estimated £800 million. I have been to Israel to hear about this excellent initiative, and as we prepare for Brexit it is heartening to hear that this model will be replicated in other countries across the world, ensuring that Britain is well placed in the ongoing tech revolution.

UK-Israel Trade — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Leaving the EU: Parliamentary Vote — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (11 Jun 2018)

Chris Green: ...Austin, and to follow the hon. Member for Blaydon (Liz Twist), who gave a thoughtful speech that captured the sense of many people on the remain side of the argument. However, in any debate about Brexit or about Britain regaining sovereignty, we must be clear about why we were in the position we were in the first place. We joined the European Economic Community in 1973. At that time,...

Leaving the Eu: Customs (16 May 2018)

Burma: [Day 2] (15 Mar 2018)

Chris Green: ...the ’70s, and that progress was founded on the other qualities of our United Kingdom. That is why Nissan and Toyota are investing in the United Kingdom. There are many different arguments in the Brexit debate, and I understand why my right hon. Friend the Member for Broxtowe (Anna Soubry) said earlier that the tone of the debate is not what it could and, indeed, should be. A significant...
