Public Sector Pay Policy — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

Albert Owen: I call Grahame Morris to wind up.

Public Sector Pay Policy — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

Albert Owen: Order. Mr Gray will respond to the debate from the Front Bench, so he will have protected time. I ask him to be a bit more disciplined and allow Back Benchers to have their time, too.

Public Sector Pay Policy — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

Albert Owen: Order. Four Members are indicating that they wish to speak. I will bring in the Front Benchers at half-past three, so if they take about seven and a half minutes each, they will have equal time.

Nuclear Power (4 Jun 2018)

Albert Owen: The Secretary of State’s statement on Wylfa Newydd is good news for my constituency, good news for north Wales, and good news for the UK nuclear industry and wider industry. If we are serious about tackling climate change, we need to be serious about new nuclear and get on with it as quickly as possible. My constituents will welcome this announcement, but they will want assurances that...

BAME Communities: Stop and Search — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (23 May 2018)

Albert Owen: Order. Before the Minister responds, I ask him to leave a couple of minutes at the end of the debate for the hon. Member who secured the debate to sum up.

BAME Communities: Stop and Search — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (23 May 2018)

Albert Owen: I am grateful to the Minister for leaving time for Naz Shah to wind up the debate.

BAME Communities: Stop and Search — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (23 May 2018)

Albert Owen: We will now hear from the Front Benchers. We have a bit of extra time, so I ask that they use it wisely to give the Minister a full opportunity to respond, and to enable Ms Shah to wind up the debate at the end. If hon. Members have come in late and wish to make interventions, that is fine, but they are not to make long interventions or speeches.

BAME Communities: Stop and Search — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (23 May 2018)

Albert Owen: Order. I am saying nothing; it is the hon. Gentleman.

BAME Communities: Stop and Search — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (23 May 2018)

Albert Owen: Order. I will just say to the Opposition Front Bencher and the sponsor of the debate that they will get an opportunity to respond to the debate.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Economic Growth (22 May 2018)

Albert Owen: The Government acknowledge that they want to spread wealth and economic growth across the United Kingdom through their industrial strategy. Does the Chancellor of the Exchequer therefore agree with the Welsh Affairs Committee, chaired by the hon. Member for Monmouth (David T. C. Davies), that the money from the cancelled rail electrification between Cardiff and Swansea should be spent in...

East Coast Main Line (16 May 2018)

Albert Owen: The whole reason that we have this statement from the Secretary of State is that the current franchise arrangements are broken. I urge him, in the new franchise, to include not-for-profit and the part-nationalisation that he has announced today. That would avoid the embarrassment of a Secretary of State having to come to this House to announce that further down the line and costing taxpayers...

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Albert Owen: To me, this debate means more than just customs and borders; it means jobs and investment in my constituency. I live on the frontline of Brexit—my constituency is on the frontline. I am closer to the great city of Dublin than the hon. Member for Arfon (Hywel Williams), and over the years, European Union and Irish politics has meant a lot to people in north-west Wales, because we are...

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Albert Owen: It is slightly different, but it needs arbitration—

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Albert Owen: I will take one intervention—from the hon. Gentleman.

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Albert Owen: I am grateful for that intervention. I am making the point that the customs union replicates the Common Market, and I feel that continuing in a customs union will give my constituents the job security that they need. To return to the will of the people, the Prime Minister called the 2017 general election—the hard Brexit general election—so that she could boost her majority in the...

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Albert Owen: As a member of the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee, I met some pharmaceutical companies. One thing they told us, which was quite stark, was that research and development is done in this country, and manufacturing in the Republic of Ireland, and the product is then transferred back to the UK to go to mainland Europe. They will be paying tariffs perhaps half a dozen times,...

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Albert Owen: My right hon. Friend mentioned trade through ports. She is aware that my constituency is on the frontline of Brexit, and is the busiest port with the Republic of Ireland—400,000 lorries a year pass through it. This is not scaremongering: already, Irish companies are making contingency plans to trade directly with mainland Europe, bypassing Britain altogether, on a business case.

Protection of Welsh Speakers from Defamation — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (24 Apr 2018)

Albert Owen: The Minister and I are both from a bilingual community. Although he does not want to give any more oxygen to that author, is he as concerned as many Opposition Members, including the mover of the debate, about IPSO? Will he take this matter up with the editor of the newspaper that the article was published in, to show the concern there has been in Wales? I am sure that the Wales Office is...

Protection of Welsh Speakers from Defamation — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (24 Apr 2018)

Albert Owen: I am extremely grateful to the hon. Lady for giving way and thank her for securing this debate. I have the advantage of not reading the Sunday papers, but I understand that the debate originated with Rod Liddle. I am not a defamation lawyer, but does the hon. Lady agree that, rather than changing the law in the long term, we need a respect agenda for the United Kingdom’s four nations...

Syria (16 Apr 2018)

Albert Owen: I join the Prime Minister in paying tribute to the professionalism of the Royal Air Force in carrying out its task last week, and I agree that deciding to take military action is the most difficult decision a Prime Minister or parliamentarian can take, but does she not understand the frustration of elected Members of the House of Commons at being sidelined in last week’s decision? We...
