Debate on the Address: Public Services (16 Oct 2019)

Mike Amesbury: ...to Prime Minister May and now Prime Minister Johnson, the Tory civil war on Europe that used to be a minority obsession has been inflicted on the nation and divided the people with the fog of Brexit. Yet when I visit, as many people in this Chamber do, local pubs, cafés, schools and employers, I find that they would like a different conversation. They would like to see a Government who...

Pension Funds: Financial and Ethical Investments — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (22 May 2019)

Mike Amesbury: ...we must make no mistake: this is a climate emergency; this is a crisis. One could argue that climate change has never been so prominent in public consciousness and political discourse. Despite the Brexit-related dramas in Parliament, which still continue, between 15 and 25 April, climate change was high on the news agenda in response to Extinction Rebellion protests in London, a major...

Exiting the European Union: Political Declaration: Dynamic Alignment on Rights and Protections (4 Apr 2019)

Mike Amesbury: Does the Minister agree with the TUC that the Government’s proposals on workers’ rights after Brexit are nothing but “flimsy procedural tweaks”? How will they be strengthened during current negotiations with the Leader of the Opposition?

Exiting the European Union: Investment and the UK Economy (28 Feb 2019)

Mike Amesbury: Yesterday, I met the Cheshire and Warrington local enterprise partnership, which told me how the Government’s prolonged approach to Brexit negotiations was already having a major effect on business decisions in our locality—this is a concern spread right across the UK. Will the Government act now to protect jobs in my constituency and elsewhere? Will they remove those red lines and...

Education Funding: Cheshire (13 Feb 2019)

Mike Amesbury: ...was discussed. I do not know whether she made representations to the Chancellor at the time, or even pressed the Cabinet for a vote, as there are well-documented claims that she did in the case of Brexit. We share some of her analysis of school funding cuts, but this matters when it comes to the Division Lobby, and in the right hon. Lady’s case, when it comes to her collective...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: UK-EU Defence Relationship (26 Nov 2018)

Mike Amesbury: The Royal United Services Institute has concluded that the collapse in the value of the pound against the dollar following the Brexit vote could lead to additional costs of £700 million a year to the MOD. What is the Secretary of State’s Department doing to mitigate this?

Backbench Business: State Pension: Women born in the 1950s — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (22 Nov 2018)

Mike Amesbury: ...no longer in his place, has been consistent in supporting women and campaigning on this issue. I would hope that he and his colleagues on the DUP Benches will put the same energy that is going into Brexit at the moment into supporting this campaign. This injustice has been highlighted many times before, and in my short time here the issue has been mentioned more than 100 times in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (21 Nov 2018)

Mike Amesbury: ...Vale constituency. More than £3.4 million will be taken from their budgets, and 60% of those schools have cut staff. The Prime Minister’s claim that austerity is over is as credible as her Brexit plan. Will she get a grip or step aside?

Poverty in Liverpool — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (24 Oct 2018)

Mike Amesbury: .... He has heard the genuine fears that the Government’s current policy direction—their cuts to welfare, nurseries, schools, colleges and local government, and their disastrous approach to Brexit—will make that worse. He has heard about the inequality and the unfairness that people, families and children are suffering in Liverpool and places like it. Their lives and opportunities are...

Exiting the European Union: Regulatory Equivalence (1 Feb 2018)

Mike Amesbury: ...2:1, members of the Institute of Directors would prefer the UK to maintain regulatory alignment with the single market rules for goods and services, rather than actively seeking to diverge after Brexit. Is that the Government’s aim as well?

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Public Funding: Charities and Voluntary Organisations (21 Dec 2017)

Mike Amesbury: ...massive £250 million a year in EU funding, but the Government appear to have no plans to replace it. Will the Minister give charities some Christmas cheer and ensure that no charity loses out post-Brexit?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Leaving the EU: Foreign and Security Policy (21 Nov 2017)

Mike Amesbury: The so-called future partnership paper on foreign and security policy published by the Brexit Department in September had plenty of positive things to say about the value of EU-UK co-operation. Will the Secretary of State therefore update the House on what progress, beyond the mighty fine warm words, has been made on the Brexit negotiations?

Iran: Vauxhall (Redundancies) (16 Oct 2017)

Mike Amesbury: ...a £120 billion surplus before the referendum to a £25 billion deficit after. Vauxhall is of course part of that figure. Does the Minister still think this is nothing to do with the disastrous Brexit negotiations?

Leaving the EU: Consumer Protection — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Oct 2017)

Mike Amesbury: I thank you, Mr Streeter, and the hon. Member for Chelmsford (Vicky Ford) for giving me the opportunity to contribute to the debate. When it comes to Brexit, discussions here and in the media have tended to focus on high-level questions on trade deals, investment or diplomatic treaties. Important as the Brexit questions are, and the consequences will of course ultimately be significant, they...

Leaving the EU: Consumer Protection — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Oct 2017)

Mike Amesbury: ...position as the digital hub of Europe, from leaving the EU, remain profound. I will work closely with Daresbury and the many tech organisations based there to make sure that any adverse effects of Brexit on the services developed and provided there will be minimised. My party is supportive of a Brexit that puts jobs first and protects the rights of workers and consumers. It is therefore...
