Future Flood Prevention (27 Feb 2017)

John Redwood: House building in areas such as mine will add to the flooding problem. Will the Minister press the Environment Agency to ensure not only that it demands that enough provision is made for new houses, but that some retrofitting is done? Previous new developments have led to far too much surface water.

Local Government Finance (22 Feb 2017)

John Redwood: The hon. Gentleman is making a case for more funding for social care and more rates relief. How much money does he have in mind and how should that be paid for?

Local Government Finance (22 Feb 2017)

John Redwood: It should be made clear that Wokingham starts £400 a head worse off than the very best-rewarded councils, which is why there has to be a differential rate.

Local Government Finance (22 Feb 2017)

John Redwood: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the gap between the lowest-funded authorities, such as West Berkshire and Wokingham in my area, and the highest-funded, had become too extreme and that more needs to be done to create some fairness?

Vauxhall/Opel: Proposed Takeover (20 Feb 2017)

John Redwood: Are the Government considering their policy on when, why and how to intervene in mergers that could be damaging to British jobs and the public interest?

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Conduct of negotiations (8 Feb 2017)

John Redwood: The hon. and learned Lady very touchingly says that her document is a compromise document. Do not she and her party understand that a compromise document is one on which she and I agree, and I do not agree with it?

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Conduct of negotiations (8 Feb 2017)

John Redwood: Will the hon. and learned Lady give way?

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Conduct of negotiations (8 Feb 2017)

John Redwood: Norway is now part of a freedom of movement area far bigger than that, and that was part of its deal. It also has to pay in a lot of money that British voters clearly do not wish to pay, so why would we want to do that?

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Conduct of negotiations (8 Feb 2017)

John Redwood: That is quite right, and they also ignore the whole of the rest of the world. It so happens that we have a profitable, balanced trade with the rest of the world. We are often in surplus with the rest of the world overall and we are in massive deficit in goods with the EU alone. There is much more scope for growth in our trade with the rest of the world than there is with the EU, partly...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Conduct of negotiations (8 Feb 2017)

John Redwood: The hon. Gentleman has made his own point, and we all wish Northern Ireland well.

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Conduct of negotiations (8 Feb 2017)

John Redwood: Of course there is a dispute resolution procedure when we enter a free trade agreement or any other trade arrangement. There is a very clear one in the WTO. We will register the best deal we can get with the EU under our WTO membership and it will be governed by normal WTO resolution procedures, with which we have no problem. The problem with the ECJ is that it presumes to strike down the...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Conduct of negotiations (8 Feb 2017)

John Redwood: It is quite obvious that Germany will export more at the early stages of development in an emerging market economy, because it tends to export capital equipment of the kind that is needed to industrialise, which is what China bought in the last decade. Now that China is a much richer country, she is going to have a massive expansion of services and that is where we have a strong relative...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Conduct of negotiations (8 Feb 2017)

John Redwood: I just explained that it should boost it. I am sure that more market opportunities will open up for Welsh farmers, but we will also debate in this House how to have a proper support regime. I hope that it will be a support regime that not only rewards environmental objectives but is friendly to promoting the greater efficiencies that can come from more farm mechanisation and enlargement,...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Conduct of negotiations (8 Feb 2017)

John Redwood: I am sure that that would be a very appropriate part of the discussions our country holds with New Zealand and Australia. I broadly take the view—I thought Labour was now of this view—that getting rid of tariffs was a good idea. Labour has spent all of the past six months saying how we must not have tariffs on our trade with Europe, but now I discover it wants tariffs on trade...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Conduct of negotiations (8 Feb 2017)

John Redwood: I think that we have teased out something very important in this debate. The Opposition want no barriers against ferocious competition from agriculture on the continent, which has undoubtedly damaged an awful lot of Welsh, Scottish and English farms, but they want maximum tariff barriers to trade with the rest of the world so that we still have to buy dear food. That does not seem to be an...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Conduct of negotiations (8 Feb 2017)

John Redwood: Like my hon. Friend, I think that there are some great English, Welsh, Scottish and Northern Irish agricultural products, and that with the right tariff system with the rest of the world we could do considerably better with our quality products.

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Conduct of negotiations (8 Feb 2017)

John Redwood: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for drawing me back to my central point. He kindly said that I have made a good speech, but I have just responded to everybody else making their own speeches and riding their own hobby horses. I hope they have enjoyed giving those hobby horses a good ride. To summarise my brief case, the aims of the new clause are fine. They happen to be agreed by the...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Conduct of negotiations (8 Feb 2017)

John Redwood: I find myself in agreement with new clause 2, which makes perfectly sensible statements about what our negotiating aims should be. I have even better news for the Opposition Front-Bench team: it is a statement of the White Paper policy. Of course we wish to maintain a stable, sustainable, profitable and growing economy, which we have done ever since the Brexit vote. Of course we wish to...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Conduct of negotiations (8 Feb 2017)

John Redwood: That is a very powerful point. I could add others. It is a great pity that it does not mention the opportunity to have a decent fishing policy. It certainly does not talk about having a sensible immigration policy. The Opposition still do not understand that we have to remove the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice if this Parliament is to be free to have a fishing policy that helps...
