Covid-19 Response (18 May 2020)

Jeremy Wright: As my right hon. Friend has said, due to the hard work of the entire health and social care system we can now look beyond this crisis. As we do that, may I ask him to say more today, and in the coming days, about how we intend to balance the need to address a substantial backlog of more routine and elective work, which, as he says, has been understandably pushed aside by covid-19, with the...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Children's Air Ambulance: Coronavirus (18 May 2020)

Jeremy Wright: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what steps his Department is taking to support the Children’s Air Ambulance charity during the covid-19 outbreak.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: High Speed 2 Railway Line (19 Mar 2020)

Jeremy Wright: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what effect the Court of Appeal judgment of 27 February 2020 on Heathrow expansion and the need to take into account climate change goals has on the progress of High Speed Two.

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Leasehold Property) Bill: Code rights in respect of land connected to leased premises (10 Mar 2020)

Jeremy Wright: I am very grateful to my right hon. Friend for giving way. May I take him back a little in his speech? I agree entirely that it is not a good argument for the inclusion of Huawei that not to do so would cost us a little more or take us a little longer, but does he accept that if we pursue our 5G network with other suppliers, it is highly likely that those suppliers will also use Chinese...

Huawei and 5G — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (4 Mar 2020)

Jeremy Wright: It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Paisley, and I congratulate my right hon. Friend the Member for Chingford and Woodford Green (Sir Iain Duncan Smith) on securing this debate. I will use my four minutes to discuss where I agree with the consensus that has emerged in this debate, and where I respectfully disagree. I agree that 5G is hugely important, for the reasons...

Huawei and 5G — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (4 Mar 2020)

Jeremy Wright: I agree with my hon. Friend that it is sensible to make sure we do not undermine diversity through our own actions. However, as a matter of principle, taking suppliers out of the system does not assist diversity. The points he has made are substantially about security, and I agree that this debate must focus on that question. Whether we use market caps or bring along other suppliers in the...

Huawei and 5G — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (4 Mar 2020)

Jeremy Wright: My hon. Friend really should not get me started on HS2; we do not have time. We should not just be worried about Huawei or about China, but about the security of the entire telecoms infrastructure. However, if we are going to talk about Huawei, let us not forget first of all that Huawei is already in the system. Sometimes these debates are conducted as though it were going to come in for the...

Online Harms Legislation (13 Feb 2020)

Jeremy Wright: My hon. Friend has already helpfully recognised that what the regulator in this space requires is the legislative authority to act, the personnel and resources needed to act, and, of course, the sanctions and powers needed to act. Is it not also right, though, that the urgency in giving the regulator those things is not just the need, great though it is, to protect vulnerable people, but the...

Terrorist Offenders (Restriction of Early Release) Bill (12 Feb 2020)

Jeremy Wright: My right hon. and learned Friend has mentioned the effect of this legislation that will keep terrorist prisoners in custody for longer, and he has rightly paid tribute to prison imams, who maintain religious interventions for those whose motivation for their terrorist offending is at least claimed to be religious. Can he reassure us that, given the extra time in custody that many of these...

Transport Infrastructure (11 Feb 2020)

Jeremy Wright: My right hon. Friend knows that I do not agree with the decision he has reached on HS2, but I respect the fact that it was a difficult decision and I am grateful to him for listening to both sides of the argument before he made it. Now that it is made, is it not right that HS2 Ltd needs not just to compensate more swiftly and more fairly than it has, but to communicate better than it has with...

Transport (5 Feb 2020)

Jeremy Wright: It is a great pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Houghton and Sunderland South (Bridget Phillipson). I want to use my time this afternoon to speak about a project, the argument for which is often that it reduces overall carbon emissions from our transport network, although that argument is debatable. The project, inevitably, is HS2. The motion is really about the strategic outline of...

Transport (5 Feb 2020)

Jeremy Wright: I do. We should use the pause that the Secretary of State has sensibly ordered to develop a cheaper, less environmentally damaging high-speed rail network—perhaps one that lays additional track along existing transport corridors. With the money that we can save, we can invest in more of the transport projects that are mentioned in this debate while still investing in high-speed rail. To my...

Paterson Inquiry (4 Feb 2020)

Jeremy Wright: If patients are to be kept safe, several things need to be true. First, as the hon. Member for Central Ayrshire (Dr Whitford) said, medical professionals who have concerns about the practice of other medical professionals need to have their concerns properly listened to. Is it not therefore a matter of serious concern that four of the six whistleblowers in this case—one of whom I have the...

Transport: Topical Questions (30 Jan 2020)

Jeremy Wright: Is it not true that the Government can remain committed to the delivery of high-speed rail, but deliver it better than with a project that, at the moment at least, will cost roughly double what its perpetrators say it would cost, and the route of which is designed only for speed although its justification is about capacity? Do not the substantial delays in the delivery of HS2 weaken fatally...

UK Telecommunications (28 Jan 2020)

Jeremy Wright: The disadvantage that the House faces this afternoon is that the most important evidence in helping the Government to make these decisions comes from the intelligence agencies, yet almost all Members of the House will not see that evidence. As it happens, I have seen it—or at least a version of it—and I happen to think that the Government are making the right judgment on a difficult...

5G Network and Huawei (27 Jan 2020)

Jeremy Wright: It would be wrong to suggest, would it not, that this decision is simple. It is far from straightforward, but can I ask my hon. Friend to give us two pieces of reassurance about how it will be made? First, will he reassure us that it will be made in accordance with, and not in contradiction to, the advice given by our intelligence agencies? Secondly, will he reassure us that the Government...

Football Association and Bet365 (9 Jan 2020)

Jeremy Wright: I, too, congratulate the hon. Member for Swansea East (Carolyn Harris) on securing this urgent question, and I thank the Minister for what he has said. He is right to highlight the progress that the FA has made on football and betting, but does he agree that bad decisions such as this one are in danger of making that perception of progress disappear in a puff of smoke? Given that there will...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill: Saving of ECA for implementation period (7 Jan 2020)

Jeremy Wright: Does my hon. Friend agree that part of the problem with what the Opposition propose is not just their lack of attention in coming to the Chamber, but their lack of attention to detail in what they propose? On new clause 4, they talk about the need to bring authority back to Parliament, but does she agree that what it actually says is that only a two-year extension could be proposed by the...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Children: Day Care (4 Nov 2019)

Jeremy Wright: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, how many parents who are students are eligible for 15 and not 30 free hours of childcare.

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (31 Oct 2019)

Jeremy Wright: Thank you, Mr Speaker, for your kindness in calling me today, for your broader kindnesses to all of us and for all your service from the Chair. I want to raise an issue again that I know is also of concern to you, Mr Speaker. Ministers know that HS2 and its construction will affect a good deal of farmland. They will also be aware, I hope, that HS2 Ltd has not been as effective as it should...
