Offensive Weapons Bill (27 Jun 2018)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: ...a minute, I do not think that it is. In case anybody gets the impression that I am a mad rifle-wielding individual, I should say that, as chair of the all-party parliamentary group on shooting and conservation, I have been working closely on making the licensing of firearms and shotguns more effective. There is a serious health and safety issue at the moment because some doctors are...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (2nd Day) (23 Apr 2018)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: My Lords, in moving this amendment I stress that the EU’s useful and largely intergovernmental structures for the co-ordination of foreign policy, international security and defence have not been imposed on the UK by a hostile, imperially minded Brussels—what Dominic Lawson describes in today’s Daily Mail as “the vengeful EU”, the threatening continent from which we must escape....

National Security Situation - Motion to Take Note (19 Apr 2018)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: My Lords, this debate in a sense has three dimensions: one is to discuss the transformed security environment in which we see ourselves; the second is the transformed position of the UK in the world; and the third is the appropriate response. I note that the first report of the Joint Committee on the National Security Strategy, published last month, refers to, “major changes to the wider...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (26 Feb 2018)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: ...amendments that we should be talking about the Bill and not about the issues raised by the amendments, which seemed a very ill-judged remark. This Bill is about a very wide range of policy areas—economic, constitutional and international—on which the Government are asking us to give them extensive powers, on trust, without telling us what they intend to do. The question for many of us...

Nuclear Safeguards Bill - Committee (1st Day) (22 Feb 2018)

Lord Warner: My Lords, I shall speak to Amendments 2, 12 and 16, which are in my name in this group. We had a good warm-up late last night for this first day in Committee on this Bill, with the Minister’s colleague doing what I thought was a rather good imitation of Geoffrey Boycott: occupying the crease but not showing much flair in his run gathering. In that debate on withdrawal from Euratom that we...

Rail Services (Bedfordshire): Democracy in Hong Kong (23 Jan 2018)

Fiona Bruce: I beg to move, That this House has considered democracy in Hong Kong. Last year marked the 20th anniversary of the handover of Hong Kong to China. Pursuant to the 1984 Sino-British joint declaration, the United Kingdom has a responsibility to ensure that the legal, economic and social rights and freedoms guaranteed to the people of Hong Kong under the Basic Law, Hong Kong’s constitution,...

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (14 Dec 2017)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: Does my right hon. Friend agree that our leaving the European Union does not mean to say that we cannot co-operate with it at the very closest level on the environment, to lead the rest of the world?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Charter of Fundamental Rights – Government Report (21 Nov 2017)

Geoffrey Cox: I will give way to the hon. Lady, but not now. Some say that there will be a collision. I am not sure that I buy the argument that there will be too much of a conflict or collision between the charter and convention. Quite frankly, my experience in the courts is that when both are relied on, the judge usually ignores the charter. As I said to the hon. and learned Member for Edinburgh South...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (10 Oct 2017)

Geoffrey Robinson: Is the Secretary of State aware that there is widespread support in the House for his Government’s commitment to enact the principle of deemed consent for organ donation? He knows from a previous meeting that my private Member’s Bill is due for its Second Reading early in the new year. Will he therefore agree to an early meeting now, so that we can co-ordinate the two and see how to...

Government Policy on the Proceedings of the House: Gypsies and Travellers and Local Communities (9 Oct 2017)

Geoffrey Robinson: No, my hon. Friend has had a good go already and other Members wish to speak. My hon. Friend the Member for North West Durham (Laura Pidcock) wants to contribute, for example. The Minister has had an offer—it is unprecedented, in my experience—from the West Midlands police and crime commissioner to get into a dialogue about specifics, because we need action or legislation from the...

Grenfell Tower (22 Jun 2017)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: ...housing policy on when and where they were going to be rehoused. Above all, I found an enormous amount of work being done by voluntary bodies—all sorts of bodies—but there was a clear lack of co-ordination on how those bodies were to move forward together. I strongly support what my right hon. Friend has said this morning about establishing a high-level Government taskforce that is...

Informal European Council: Points of Order (6 Feb 2017)

John Bercow: Order. I will come to the hon. Member for Aldershot (Sir Gerald Howarth) in a moment. First of all, in answer to the hon. Member for The Cotswolds (Geoffrey Clifton-Brown), let me say this. There are two elements to the announcement that I made at the start of proceedings. First, I referred to an extension of the range of people working within the Department of Chamber and Committee...

Grammar and Faith Schools: Veterans and Service Personnel (8 Nov 2016)

Stephen Doughty: I beg to move, That this House has considered raising awareness of a new generation of veterans and Service personnel. I hope that after a clearly rancorous and divisive debate, we might find more common ground as, in the season of remembrancetide, we consider the issues facing a new generation of veterans and service personnel across our country. I thank the Backbench Business Committee and...

Policing and Crime Bill: Inspection of fire and rescue authorities (13 Jun 2016)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: I am one of the co-signatories of my right hon. and learned Friend’s new clause. The problem with the situation at the moment is that the constable on duty may require a face covering to be removed but he does then require post-authorisation from a senior officer on duty. In the Blackpool case and in my own case on the badger culls, where someone was parked in a car late at night for...

Backbench Business: Digital Records in the NHS — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (28 Apr 2016)

Karin Smyth: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Wilson. I congratulate the hon. Member for The Cotswolds (Geoffrey Clifton-Brown) on securing this important debate and I thank the Backbench Business Committee for granting it. It has been interesting. I am a new Member of this House and it is true and a great pleasure that every day brings new insight into the working of the House and...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Innovation and Skills: Innovate UK: UK Trade and Investment (3 Mar 2016)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, what assessment he has made of the potential merits of co-ordinating the objectives of Innovate UK and UKTI in order to increase exports.

Flooding (5 Jan 2016)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: houses? Increasingly, we are building them on floodplains and in areas local people know will flood. We are building up a bigger and bigger problem for the future. Will she ask the review to co-ordinate with the Department for Communities and Local Government on where to build houses in the future?

Wanless Review and the Dickens File — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (4 Nov 2015)

John Mann: Thank you, Ms Vaz. I assure you that I have no intention of prejudicing any investigations. I am keen to challenge those commentators who say that there is some big conspiracy to hunt out and name people who are innocent, and that everything has been overstated when it comes to historic child abuse. Some have got quite a track record in saying that. I would say to them: Rolf Harris, Stuart...

Perinatal Mental Illness (NHS Family Services): Cities and Local Government Devolution Bill [Lords] (14 Oct 2015)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: I am glad to have caught your eye in this very important debate, Mr Deputy Speaker. I am delighted to follow the Chairman of the Select Committee, the hon. Member for Sheffield South East (Mr Betts). His experience clearly showed through during his speech, and I largely agree with everything he said. I am delighted to join my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State in his enthusiasm for...

[Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] — Backbench Business — National Planning Policy Framework (5 Mar 2015)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: ...It is interesting that we have returned to business as usual; we seem to have these Thursday afternoon planning debates regularly, at which Government Back Benchers raise planning issues from their constituencies. I pay tribute to the hon. Member for The Cotswolds (Geoffrey Clifton-Brown) for securing this important debate and making a truly excellent speech. I agreed with almost every...
