Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (22 Mar 2016)

Angela Eagle: Today we have heard contributions from 30 Opposition Members and only 14 Government Members—the Government ran out of contributors quite a while ago. The Chancellor has had to be dragged back to the Chamber today to explain what on earth has happened to his Budget which, after all, is still only six days old and already contains three U-turns. He put in a bravura performance, but there...

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Topical Questions (15 Mar 2016)

Angela Eagle: It is National Apprenticeship Week, British Science Week, Global Consumer Day—and the Ides of March. Today, the CBI has released a survey showing that 80% of its members support the case that staying in the EU is best for jobs, growth and investment. They are right, are they not, Secretary of State?

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Topical Questions (15 Mar 2016)

Angela Eagle: I thank the right hon. Gentleman for that response. It was not heard brilliantly on parts of his Back Benches. Is his lukewarm response for remaining not now irritating both sides of his divided party and damaging the Government’s case to remain in the EU? When the Prime Minister launched the Conservatives’ “in for Britain” campaign, the Business Secretary conveniently...

Enterprise Bill [Lords] — [2ndAllocated Day]: Schedule 5 — Sunday opening hours: rights of shop workers (9 Mar 2016)

Angela Eagle: The Bill should have been so much more ambitious to live up to its encouraging short title, but despite the sterling efforts of Opposition Members in this House, and those of our Labour colleagues in the House of Lords, it remains a mouse of a Bill which should have been a lion. As I observed on Second Reading, this piece of legislation does not even match the ambition of the...

Enterprise Bill [Lords] — [2ndAllocated Day]: Schedule 5 — Sunday opening hours: rights of shop workers (9 Mar 2016)

Angela Eagle: I think the right hon. Gentleman should learn a bit of grace in defeat, because that is what the House likes. Will he confirm that these proposals did not fall under the EVEL or the WEVEL parts of our procedures, and will he also confirm that, having listened to the will of the House, this Government have no intention of bringing these Sunday trading proposals back before us?

Enterprise Bill [Lords] — [2ndAllocated Day]: Clause 33 — Extended Sunday opening hours and Sunday working (9 Mar 2016)

Angela Eagle: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. The House has spoken on the very contentious issue of Sunday trading, which would have affected millions of workers. Can we now hear from the Government that they will respect the will of this House and abandon their tawdry attempts to reintroduce this proposal? And I mean the Chancellor.

Enterprise Bill [Lords] — [2ndAllocated Day]: Clause 33 — Extended Sunday opening hours and Sunday working (9 Mar 2016)

Angela Eagle: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Will you confirm again that the manuscript amendment that the Government attempted to sneak on to the amendment paper at the last minute today, which would have covered the compromise on which the hon. Member for Berwick-upon-Tweed (Mrs Trevelyan) seems to have done a deal, is in fact not on the amendment paper and not before the House?

Uk Steel Industry (29 Feb 2016)

Angela Eagle: We are not calling for protectionism; we are calling for tariffs that prevent unfair trade. When the right hon. Gentleman talks about protectionism, it is important that he distinguishes between dumped and unfairly traded products—which must have high tariffs so that they can be blocked before they destroy our industry—and fairly traded products. We agree with him. We are not...

Uk Steel Industry (29 Feb 2016)

Angela Eagle: I beg to move, That this House notes the crisis in the UK steel industry; calls on the Government to support tougher EU action to ensure a level playing field and prevent the dumping of Chinese steel, to support scrapping the lesser duty rule which prevents higher tariffs being imposed that reflect the actual margin of dumping and to examine the implications of granting China Market Economy...

Uk Steel Industry (29 Feb 2016)

Angela Eagle: I will be the first to work with Government Members, and I hope that by the time we have listened to the Business Secretary’s reply we will have something that we can all cheer. The British Chambers of Commerce recently found that export growth continued to slow at the end of 2015, with manufacturers struggling in particular. In the words of a former Conservative Trade Minister, the...

Uk Steel Industry (29 Feb 2016)

Angela Eagle: I certainly agree with my hon. Friend’s observations and share his surprise that Swedish steel is being used in Ministry of Defence contracts in quite that way. I note that it appears to be a Conservative donor company that was doing that work. I join him in commending the Daily Mirror for its fantastic Save Our Steel campaign, which has highlighted the very real effects of the current...

Uk Steel Industry (29 Feb 2016)

Angela Eagle: I thank my hon. Friend for that observation. I think that in this debate Opposition Members will want to explore the gap between the Government’s rhetoric and the reality of their actions, because all too often we find that the gap is far too wide.

Uk Steel Industry (29 Feb 2016)

Angela Eagle: The Government should certainly be leaving no stone unturned in encouraging UK steel to tender for any contract, especially as they boast about changing the procurement rules—in my experience, one has to do a lot more than that to make a real difference.

Uk Steel Industry (29 Feb 2016)

Angela Eagle: Okay, but just because I am intrigued about the hon. Gentleman’s rugby-playing days.

Uk Steel Industry (29 Feb 2016)

Angela Eagle: I am just getting the idea of a mixed rugby team out of my mind so that I can address the hon. Gentleman’s point. I think that it rather makes the point that the Government need to do more than just change technical criteria. They need to take a root-and-branch look at what is actually happening in our steel industry, and an industrial strategy would assist them in doing that. We need...

Uk Steel Industry (29 Feb 2016)

Angela Eagle: My hon. Friend makes a perfectly fair point. The Government should leave no stone unturned in order to maximise the chances of British steel companies bidding for these contracts successfully.

Uk Steel Industry (29 Feb 2016)

Angela Eagle: My hon. Friend has anticipated a point that I plan to make later in my speech. I certainly hope that there will be some good news on the catapult centre in the Budget, because we would certainly support that.

Uk Steel Industry (29 Feb 2016)

Angela Eagle: One of the first things we have to do is stop the tsunami of unfairly traded and dumped Chinese steel, which is preventing fair trade and competition in the market at the moment. The Opposition have had to drag this Government kicking and screaming to the House on no fewer than 12 occasions since 2014 to try to force them to turn their warm, sympathetic words on steel, which we all recognise...

Uk Steel Industry (29 Feb 2016)

Angela Eagle: Far be it from me to suggest that the Government should operate outside EU state aid rules; I simply do not think that they are being sufficiently inventive or creative with the rules as they are at the moment. Had they been more interested, perhaps we would not have had to drag them to the House 14 times to keep the pressure on.

Uk Steel Industry (29 Feb 2016)

Angela Eagle: Again, I agree. In this moment, we all have to do the most we can to preserve a future for the UK steel industry. Our motion calls on the Government to take tougher action to secure a level playing field for our industry by working in partnership with our European neighbours. As part of the largest economic bloc in the world, Britain is in a much stronger position to stand up to those who...
