Coronavirus (25 Mar 2021)

William Wragg: What an extraordinary thing! This evening, I imagine I will find myself in the Lobby with the right hon. Gentleman who spoke before me, although he will do it by proxy, I presume, and, perhaps more concerningly from my perspective, with the right hon. Member for Kingston and Surbiton (Ed Davey), who is to follow me. It is an eccentric thing, I suppose, to talk in this House about beliefs and...

Coronavirus (25 Mar 2021)

William Wragg: My right hon. Friend mentions data on occurrences within the NHS. Does the NHS have data to suggest how many people have, sadly, died from covid in NHS hospitals three weeks after receiving their first dose of a covid vaccine?

Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (25 Mar 2021)

William Wragg: Does my right hon. Friend still agree with himself in his opposition to covid vaccine certification to attend the pub, as he expressed on Sky News recently?

Electoral Commission (22 Mar 2021)

William Wragg: Realising the hour, I shall not detain the House long at all, which I know will come as a great relief to colleagues. Let me just say that, as a member of the panel appointed by Mr Speaker to conduct the interview process, I have no doubt whatsoever of the sterling abilities of Mr John Pullinger and therefore recommend him wholeheartedly to Her Majesty for appointment as chair of the...

Select Committee on Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs (18 Mar 2021)

William Wragg: It is a pleasure to have the opportunity to present to the House the latest report of the Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee. I thank the Backbench Business Committee for accommodating us in today’s proceedings. May I also place on record my thanks to fellow members of the Committee for their work during this inquiry on Government transparency and accountability...

Select Committee on Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs (18 Mar 2021)

William Wragg: I thank the hon. Lady for her assiduous work as a member of the Committee and her significant input to this particular inquiry. In answer to her question, I suspect that the overriding concern for some in Whitehall and NHS England was that the ideas were not necessarily invented by them, and they were therefore mistrustful of them. It is vital that existing local expertise and infrastructure...

Select Committee on Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs (18 Mar 2021)

William Wragg: My hon. Friend highlights an important point of our report, which is the need to be clear, open and honest about uncertainties. We can all be guilty of wishing to have answers to every single question—perhaps like me at the moment—but in being able to express uncertainty and show that candour, public trust is enhanced.

Select Committee on Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs (18 Mar 2021)

William Wragg: I thank the hon. Lady for her hard work on the Committee and particularly on this report. She will be aware of a case that is possibly going before the courts on that matter, which is to do with the opening on 12 April of non-essential retail, but not of hospitality. I agree with the thrust of her question, and I suggest that the Government publish the evidence that hospitality venues are...

Select Committee on Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs (18 Mar 2021)

William Wragg: I certainly thank my hon. Friend, and I take his question as an early invitation to visit those excellent establishments with him when restrictions and time allow. From the answer that I gave to the hon. Member for Luton South (Rachel Hopkins), he will know that I have expressed the view that that data and the justification should be published if those excellent hostelries cannot reopen on...

Select Committee on Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs (18 Mar 2021)

William Wragg: The hon. Gentleman invites me to speculate about whom I would bring before this House on such a charge. Our report sought merely to remind Ministers that a friendly invitation from a Select Committee should be readily accepted, rather than avoided.

Select Committee on Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs (18 Mar 2021)

William Wragg: I thank my hon. Friend for his question and, indeed, for his work on the Committee; I have had the pleasure to serve alongside him. He is entirely right. I think the purpose of his question was to suggest the strengthening of the ministerial code, with the UK Statistics Authority code of practice being integrated with it, so that Ministers who are accountable to this House and, through us,...

Select Committee on Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs (18 Mar 2021)

William Wragg: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his question. He and I in some respects have always been engaged in the joint endeavour of ensuring that Greater Manchester, throughout the tiering decisions, was dealt with slightly more favourably than it was. But I agree with him on the study to which he refers: all of that evidence and data should be published.

Select Committee on Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs (18 Mar 2021)

William Wragg: I thank the hon. Lady for her questions. I hope that the publication of this report can serve as a reminder to all Ministers that, when they are invited to attend a Select Committee for a particular inquiry purpose, rather than for a general session, their first response should be to accept that invitation. If there are any problems, they should, of course, use the usual channels to...

Select Committee on Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs (18 Mar 2021)

William Wragg: I thank my hon. Friend for his question. I have always been dubious of the word “consultation” when expressed by anybody as a means of kicking things into the long grass. What is, and what was required was the publication of data thresholds so that areas could judge for themselves objectively why those tiering decisions were necessary. As we go forward with the road map, the publication...

Independent Review of Administrative Law (18 Mar 2021)

William Wragg: Can we quash this hyperbolic nonsense spouted forth in the Chamber this morning? The incidents on Saturday were because of poor enforcement of badly drafted covid regulations, and nothing more than that. Will the Lord Chancellor take this opportunity to provide an update on the constitution, democracy and rights commission? He will recall with fondness his appearance before my Committee, I am...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Coronavirus: Vaccination (17 Mar 2021)

William Wragg: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, if he will issue guidance to hospital trusts on vaccinating vulnerable inpatients against covid-19 on admission rather than discharge.

Vaccine Passports — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (15 Mar 2021)

William Wragg: It is an unquantifiable pleasure, as ever, to serve under your chairmanship, Sir David. There is no doubt about the prescience apparent in the debate, and the power of the oratory of the hon. Member for Hartlepool (Mike Hill) has caused the Cabinet Office to publish—during his speech—the terms of reference for the review and, indeed, the consultation on it, which closes on 29 March. I...

Business of the House (4 Mar 2021)

William Wragg: Mr Speaker, “Have you ever been in the House of Commons and taken a good square look at the inmates?”— so wrote P. G. Wodehouse, to continue today’s theme. He was less than complimentary about some of the characters, but quite what he would have made of the virtual Parliament is anybody’s guess. Bearing in mind those inmates, will the Leader of the House provide us with an update on...

Covid Contracts: Judicial Review (24 Feb 2021)

William Wragg: I welcome my hon. Friend to the Dispatch Box. I hope that the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster was not too indisposed cooking up plans for the domestic covid passports that he had previously ruled out to attend the House today. Most fair-minded people will look at this situation in the round and perhaps give the Government the benefit of the doubt, because the judgment found against the...
