Informal European Council (6 Feb 2017)

Julian Brazier: I welcome this statement and, in particular, my right hon. Friend’s comments about refugees. Does she agree that the work we are doing, both through our development budget and through our armed forces, to underpin the fragile states of Lebanon and Jordan is absolutely pivotal and is vastly more than is being done by the rest of Europe?

Armed Forces Covenant (2 Feb 2017)

Julian Brazier: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Berwick-upon-Tweed (Mrs Trevelyan) on securing this debate. It is a particular pleasure to follow the hon. Member for City of Chester (Christian Matheson), whose praise for my hon. Friend and for the late Duke of Westminster I very much endorse. It is an unavoidable fact that the body of men and women whom we ask to do the most difficult and...

Armed Forces Covenant (2 Feb 2017)

Julian Brazier: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for his endorsement. He makes an important additional point. This is not only about officers being posted around staff jobs. The centres of excellence where we train the next generation for the Army should get the cream of the senior NCOs from all over the Army. Brecon is shortly to have no Army units near it, but of course we have to post people in and out of...

Armed Forces Covenant (2 Feb 2017)

Julian Brazier: My hon. and gallant Friend puts it in a nutshell, much better than I have. I will finish in a moment, but I have one last point on the survey—you have been very tolerant, Madam Deputy Speaker. The survey refers to home ownership 11 times. People in the armed forces desperately want to own a home, and they worry about what will happen to them when they leave the service. Nowhere does the...

Armed Forces Covenant (2 Feb 2017)

Julian Brazier: The picture my hon. Friend paints is an excellent one, but I think he would confirm that the cost of housing, both to buy and rent, in his constituency is extremely high. Is it not so much better to have the arrangement he describes than to put people out on allowances in the private sector?

Armed Forces Covenant (2 Feb 2017)

Julian Brazier: Much as I respect my hon. Friend the Minister, when we read the questions in the screenshot we can see how they are designed to produce a particular answer. To take just one example, the most common reason why people are in favour of change—two thirds are nominally in favour—is that they want to live in a better house. Nowhere are they told that once they go into the private sector, they...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (1 Feb 2017)

Julian Brazier: Russian armed forces regularly carry out large-scale exercises, including with nuclear-capable equipment, on the borders of eastern Europe. Does my right hon. Friend agree that the American commitment to NATO is absolutely pivotal to protect the countries of eastern Europe from going the same way as eastern Ukraine?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Leaving the EU: UK Defence Policy (30 Jan 2017)

Julian Brazier: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the answers to earlier questions illustrate that we punch above our weight compared with many of our European partners, both in terms of spending and in terms of deployments to protect the eastern flank of Europe? Does he further agree that that is something that our European neighbours would do very well to keep in mind as we negotiate a new relationship...

Trident: Test Firing (23 Jan 2017)

Julian Brazier: Does my right hon. Friend agree that secrecy and transparency are simply incompatible, and that it is right that every British Government—as well as, indeed, every Government of our nuclear allies, the Americans and the French—have always put secrecy first in this area?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Single Market (17 Jan 2017)

Julian Brazier: I welcome my hon. Friend’s typically constructive approach, but does she recall the clinical trials directive that destroyed much of the pharmaceutical industry in this country overnight, including Pfizer’s site in east Kent?

Bill Presented: National Citizen Service Bill [Lords] (16 Jan 2017)

Julian Brazier: Will my right hon. Friend give way?

Bill Presented: National Citizen Service Bill [Lords] (16 Jan 2017)

Julian Brazier: My right hon. Friend is, of course, absolutely right. My point is that we have to be very careful to make sure that an unhealthy obsession with trying to eliminate all risks does not end up squeezing the opportunities for real adventure out of children’s lives.

Bill Presented: National Citizen Service Bill [Lords] (16 Jan 2017)

Julian Brazier: Thank you very much, Mr Speaker. The House must be getting very bored with that reminder, although I was extremely grateful for the much undeserved honour. I welcome this Bill, as I am a strong supporter of the NCS. I had the opportunity to meet some of the 130 constituents who did their National Citizen Service last year, and I was very impressed. Clearly, they had enjoyed the earlier...

Bill Presented: National Citizen Service Bill [Lords] (16 Jan 2017)

Julian Brazier: My right hon. Friend, who is an absolute expert on this matter and did so much in this area in his time as a Minister, not just with the National Citizen Service but in the adventure field more widely, anticipates my next sentence. That is why it is crucial that at a time when we are about to start a public consultation on the future of the AALA, which will be conducted by a panel appointed...

Bill Presented: National Citizen Service Bill [Lords] (16 Jan 2017)

Julian Brazier: We did that last week, Mr Speaker.

Bill Presented: National Citizen Service Bill [Lords] (16 Jan 2017)

Julian Brazier: I am most grateful, Mr Speaker. Speaking as huge supporter of the NCS, locally as well and nationally, does my right hon. Friend agree that the adventure content is critical? We must be careful about the continuing erosion of adventure in residential centres up and down the country, in terms of both numbers and quality, if the NCS is to continue to deliver success.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Exiting the EU: Diplomatic Relations (10 Jan 2017)

Julian Brazier: Thank you very much, Mr Speaker. Given the trade ties that my right hon. Friend has already mentioned and the fact that we are Europe’s largest defence contributor, does he agree that we should not have to make deals on immigration and free movement to secure a good trade agreement with our allies and friends in Europe?

Exiting the Eu: Science and Research (19 Dec 2016)

Julian Brazier: Let me be the first to congratulate the hon. Member for Richmond Park (Sarah Olney) on her maiden speech, particularly on the generous tribute she paid to her predecessor and on the very real knowledge she brings to this debate from her professional background. She clearly feels passionately about this issue and the wider implications, and I look forward to hearing further contributions from...

Exiting the Eu: Science and Research (19 Dec 2016)

Julian Brazier: The hon. Lady said that the European Union was the most successful trade agreement in history. That was certainly true for a generation or so, but does it not worry her that it is now the slowest growing economic bloc in the world and that that 44% has fallen more than 10 points over the last few years and continues to fall?

European Council 2016 (19 Dec 2016)

Julian Brazier: While strongly commending the pivotal role that Britain is playing in Lebanon, Jordan and other neighbouring states in coping with the miserable outflow from Syria, may I urge my right hon. Friend that a high priority in our dealings with the incoming Administration in Washington must be tackling the growing military hegemony of Russia and its ally Iran in that region?
