Prime Minister: Engagements (16 Nov 2022)

Dominic Raab: I thank the hon. Lady, who has been a consistent champion on this issue, for which I recognise and pay tribute to her. My understanding is that the information is available to veterans and their families, who may request details of their service and medical records, but if the hon. Lady would like to write to me, I will make sure that she gets an adequate answer on her more specific point.

Prime Minister: Engagements (16 Nov 2022)

Dominic Raab: My right hon. friend is absolutely right. We should forever be grateful to all those service personnel who participated in the British nuclear testing programme. I can reassure him that we have asked officials to look again at recognition with medals. Any recommendations will be announced in the usual way.

Prime Minister: Engagements (16 Nov 2022)

Dominic Raab: I can tell the hon. Lady that our £96 billion integrated rail plan will make Northern Powerhouse Rail a reality. We are committed to the project; the precise details will be set out in due course.

Prime Minister: Engagements (16 Nov 2022)

Dominic Raab: My hon. Friend is absolutely right to raise this issue. I cannot tell him the precise read-out from the meeting—I have not seen it yet—but I can tell him that the Home Secretary’s deal and agreement with her French opposite number means a 40% increase in officers patrolling beaches in northern France; UK officers embedded with their French counterparts for the first time; investment in...

Prime Minister: Engagements (16 Nov 2022)

Dominic Raab: It is not a matter of blaming anyone; it is a matter of a team effort and shared endeavour, working with the Scottish Government, to make sure that we get a grip on inflation, which is the No. 1 priority. It has to be said that if the hon. Lady takes the position that we agree with inflation-busting pay rises—as difficult as these decisions are—we will only see inflation stay for longer....

Prime Minister: Engagements (16 Nov 2022)

Dominic Raab: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. We fully support the Home Secretary and the important measures she has taken, whether on the Rwanda scheme, implementing the Nationality and Borders Act 2022, or the new deal with France to make sure that we collaborate with our international partners on a shared issue. He can also rest assured that that will be opposed tooth and nail by the Labour party.

Prime Minister: Engagements (16 Nov 2022)

Dominic Raab: I thank the hon. Lady. She will know that we have extended the eligibility of free school meals to 1.9 million pupils. On top of that, there is the £200 million holiday activities and food programme and the £1,200 of direct payments to the most vulnerable. I gently say to her that we also need to keep an eye on the macroeconomic picture. The No. 1 priority is to get inflation down, and we...

Prime Minister: Engagements (16 Nov 2022)

Dominic Raab: I thank my right hon. Friend. I think I followed the various steps of logic in that question. I understand her opposition to HS2. I think we have some very difficult decisions to make. They will inevitably involve a balanced approach. I will leave it to the Chancellor to set them out in the autumn statement tomorrow.

Prime Minister: Engagements (16 Nov 2022)

Dominic Raab: The hon. Member raises a really important point, and we are doing everything we can to support those who may be reliant on food banks or otherwise struggling to make ends meet. He can see that with the £1,200 cost of living support that is going to the 8 million most vulnerable households, the energy price guarantee and further measures for pensioners. My right hon. Friend the Chancellor...

Prime Minister: Engagements (16 Nov 2022)

Dominic Raab: My hon. Friend makes an important point. I have said I will co-operate fully with the independent investigation. In fact, I welcome the opportunity to address these complaints. I think, though, that it is important that we have zero tolerance for any bullying and hold the highest standards in public life, and it is important for all of us to adhere to those standards.

Written Ministerial Statements — Ministry of Justice: Call for Evidence Response on SLAPPs (20 Jul 2022)

Dominic Raab: Today the Government is publishing its response to its Call for Evidence on SLAPPs – Strategic Lawsuits Against Public participation. SLAPPs are a growing form of aggressive litigation which seek to intimidate, silence and harass an opponent via improper use of the judicial system. The invasion of Ukraine has heightened concerns around the way foreign actors may be misusing the UK legal...

Written Ministerial Statements — Ministry of Justice: Judicial Update (19 Jul 2022)

Dominic Raab: I am today announcing the Government’s decision on pay for the judiciary. The Government received the Senior Salary Review Body’s (SSRB) report on 28 June 2022. This will be presented to Parliament and published on Gov.uk. The Government values the independent expertise and insight of the SSRB and has considered the advice in the report. The recommendation made by the SSRB for the...

Written Ministerial Statements — Ministry of Justice: Prison update (19 Jul 2022)

Dominic Raab: I am today confirming the Government’s decision on pay awards for prison staff. Throughout the pandemic and beyond, our officers (alongside all prison service staff) have gone above and beyond to protect the public and give prisoners the best possible chance at a new start. Their efforts are hugely appreciated. We have carefully considered the Prison Service Pay Review Body’s (PSPRB)...

Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (18 Jul 2022)

Dominic Raab: I rise to proudly defend the record of this Government under this Prime Minister, and to speak in favour of the motion before the House. The Government under this Prime Minister have steered the country through some of the most difficult challenges in living memory. This Government under this Prime Minister got the big calls right on the vaccine roll-out—the fastest and most effective in...

Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (18 Jul 2022)

Dominic Raab: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. What is more, the behaviour of those on the Labour Benches will unite the country. We know why they have not stood up to the unions, including the RMT, since 2015. The Labour party HQ and the local Labour party branches have guzzled up some £68 million in donations from the unions. It is the same old story. The Labour party cannot stand up for the people...

Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (18 Jul 2022)

Dominic Raab: The Opposition do not want to hear it. They never want to talk about the fact that unemployment is close to a 50-year-low, or about the rise in the national insurance threshold, which is the biggest personal tax cut in a decade to support hard-working people across the country; the record levels of doctors and nurses in our precious NHS, only because we have the economic strength to fund...

Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (18 Jul 2022)

Dominic Raab: We have zero tolerance, and the systems are in place. Let me tell the hon. Lady—she talks a lot about this—that the number of convictions for rape has risen by two thirds in the past year. When it comes to supporting the victims of crime—[Interruption.] I have listened to her, but she never talks about this: we have quadrupled the investment in support services for victims since the...

Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (18 Jul 2022)

Dominic Raab: My hon. Friend raises an interesting point, which I believe is now a matter of public record. The right hon. Member for Ashton-under-Lyne backed a leader who the former head of MI6 said—I will quote, so we have this accurately for the record—denigrated his own country and “embraced the interests of its enemies and opponents”. That is who Labour supported. The Opposition have no...

Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (18 Jul 2022)

Dominic Raab: Total rubbish.

Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (18 Jul 2022)

Dominic Raab: Does the hon. Lady recognise the fact that in the last year, the volume of rape convictions has increased by two thirds? A simple yes or no.
