Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Passengers from British Airports (21 Mar 2019)

Chris Grayling: ...on the Treasury to look at this again. I know my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer has taken careful note of all those representations. Of course, the one thing that would not help Newquay airport and others is Labour’s plan to hike air passenger duty.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: UK Space Industry (19 Mar 2019)

Steve Double: I thank the Minister for that answer, but will he confirm that the Government remain positive about the potential of a horizontal-launch spaceport at Cornwall airport Newquay? Will he continue to work to provide the support needed to move that development forward, which would be of such benefit to the Cornish economy? Will he also come to Cornwall and see for himself the potential of the site?

Business of the House (Today): European Union (Withdrawal) Act (12 Mar 2019)

Martin Whitfield: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for St Austell and Newquay (Steve Double), but may I give him a little piece of advice and suggest that he votes against the deal? We have listened to the debate over the past few months, and can extract many anomalies that go to the heart of the constitutional problem we find ourselves with today. There is a real risk that this Parliament is...

Leaving the European Union — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (11 Mar 2019)

Chris Heaton-Harris: ...they were well made. He pointed out that there are plenty of arguments available to people who voted leave, beyond the important matter of democracy. My hon. Friend the Member for St Austell and Newquay (Steve Double) made an excellent speech. He and the hon. Member for Cambridge are a good double team. They do not necessarily need an Opposition or Government spokesman to deal with any of...

Stronger Towns Fund - Statement (5 Mar 2019)

Lord Teverson: ...lesser developed region within England, yet the funding under this scheme seems absolutely minimal. Can the Minister tell me something specific regarding the town of Newport? I should have said Newquay—my apologies to my Welsh colleagues. Newquay Airport is bidding to be a spaceport under the Government’s programme for a launch. A consortium has, together with Virgin Orbit, put...

Stronger Towns Fund (4 Mar 2019)

James Brokenshire: As I said to my hon. Friend the Member for St Austell and Newquay (Steve Double), the UK shared prosperity fund is different. Let me also point out that this fund includes £600 million for competitive bids. I know that the south-west has benefited from the coastal communities fund. I encourage the hon. Gentleman to make applications and see towns across the south-west benefit.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Heathrow: Regional Connections (14 Feb 2019)

Steve Double: I thank the Secretary of State for his support for the new Heathrow connection to Cornwall Airport Newquay, which is due to come into place on 1 April. However, with the proposed acquisition of Flybe by Virgin Atlantic, can he reassure the House that Government support for the new route will continue even if the operator changes?

Economic Growth: South-west — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (5 Feb 2019)

Of course the spaceport has already received funding of £2 million from the Government, and the Space Industry Act...

With...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (28 Jan 2019)

Steve Double: Coastal erosion is a growing issue in Cornwall due to our more extreme weather patterns, and there is particular concern about the risk to cliff-top developments.

Business of the House (Today): No Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (16 Jan 2019)

Liz Saville-Roberts: It is an honour to follow the hon. Member for St Austell and Newquay (Steve Double), although I must admit that I share none of his convictions about either the qualities of the Prime Minister or the virtues of no deal. I thought that something had happened last night, but the pantomime points-scoring is continuing in this place. Last night I voted against the Brexit deal and, in doing so, I...
