NHS Winter Crisis: Rail Franchising (10 Jan 2018)

Albert Owen: In the short time I have, I wish first to pay tribute to all the staff who work on this country’s railways. They do an excellent job of getting our trains moving under difficult circumstances. I also pay tribute to the work of the shadow Secretary of State, my hon. Friend the Member for Middlesbrough (Andy McDonald), who over the past few weeks has been standing up and making the case for...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Albert Owen: Will my hon. Friend give way?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Albert Owen: Does my hon. Friend not understand the significance of the June election? The Prime Minister called the election to improve her majority, but it was reduced. That was a game changer in many ways. Many Labour Members increased their majority, including, I think, my hon. Friend.

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Equality impact analyses of provisions of this Act (19 Dec 2017)

Albert Owen: Order. Too much “you”. The hon. Lady is an experienced Member of the House and she should set an example.

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Equality impact analyses of provisions of this Act (19 Dec 2017)

Albert Owen: Order. That was a very long intervention with too many “yous”. Let us get used to the parliamentary language and have a proper debate.

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Equality impact analyses of provisions of this Act (19 Dec 2017)

Albert Owen: Order. Is the hon. Member for Hitchin and Harpenden (Bim Afolami) referring to me, because he is saying “you”? He should refer to the hon. Lady, and if he wishes to take an intervention, he must sit down.

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Review on inclusive growth and equality (18 Dec 2017)

Albert Owen: Order. As the hon. Lady continues, rather than concentrating on recent history, will she get back to the bank levy, which is what is under debate?

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Higher Rates for Additional Dwellings (18 Dec 2017)

Albert Owen: With this it will be convenient to discuss the following: That schedule 11 be the Eleventh schedule to the Bill. Clause 41 stand part. Amendment 2, in clause 8, page 4, line 16, at end insert— “(4A) Regulations under this section may not increase any person’s liability to income tax.” This amendment provides that the power to make regulations in consequence of the exemption from...

European Council (18 Dec 2017)

Albert Owen: I welcome the progress that has been made on the Irish question, but I am disappointed by the response the Prime Minister gave to my right hon. Friend the Member for East Ham (Stephen Timms). Will she state categorically that Welsh sea ports, including the port of Holyhead in my constituency, which is the busiest on the western seaboard, will have equal status with ports in Scotland, England...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Leaving the EU: Negotiations (13 Dec 2017)

Albert Owen: Nadolig llawen a blwyddyn newydd dda i chi, Mr Speaker, and to all Members. Last week showed how important the Irish dimension is to the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill and the negotiations. Will the Secretary of State give me a categorical assurance that Welsh ports, especially Holyhead, will be safeguarded and given the same treatment as those in Northern Ireland when it comes to trade?

City of Culture 2021: Swansea Bid — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (5 Dec 2017)

Albert Owen: The hon. Gentleman is absolutely right to say that Swansea deserves the title in its own right, but he is also right to say that Wales deserves it. Here is a nation full of culture, wanting to share it with the rest of the world. I am from north Wales, but I will be supporting this all-Wales bid to have the city of culture. I have come off the fence: my son-in-law is from Coventry and my...

EU Exit Negotiations (5 Dec 2017)

Albert Owen: Yesterday, for the first time, the Secretary of State realised that the importance of the Irish border issue extends beyond the island of Ireland. To unite the United Kingdom, will he meet the Scottish and Welsh First Ministers to discuss regulatory alignment because it impacts on everyone? If he wants to unite the United Kingdom, he must do better.

Backbench Business: Rural Economy of Wales (28 Nov 2017)

Albert Owen: I am glad the hon. Gentleman has highlighted that point. Is he as disappointed as me that the Minister did not refer to that? The Government have responsibility for it, and by keeping agencies open they would help local economies.

Backbench Business: Rural Economy of Wales (28 Nov 2017)

Albert Owen: I want to say on the record what I have said to the Minister privately—that he should involve Welsh MPs from north Wales in the growth deal. Yes, let us have bottom up and get the bid, but we have a mandate from the communities as well.

Backbench Business: Rural Economy of Wales (28 Nov 2017)

Albert Owen: It is always a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. I genuinely congratulate the hon. Member for Ceredigion (Ben Lake) on the tone he set in opening the debate. I pay tribute to him and his predecessor Mark Williams, who for many years adopted the same tone of consensus in Wales. He brought people together to speak as Welsh MPs in the House of Commons. I congratulate the...

Backbench Business: Rural Economy of Wales (28 Nov 2017)

Albert Owen: That is the point I was making: it should not just go through the Barnett formula, because we would lose out by getting only a certain percentage. We need like-for-like funding, because when the European Union negotiates the amount, it looks at need in a way that is fairer to rural communities. Connectivity is also important. In north-west Wales, and indeed in Ceredigion on the west coast of...

Backbench Business: Rural Economy of Wales (28 Nov 2017)

Albert Owen: The hon. Gentleman has asked me a question and answered it in the way that I would have: it does require political will. Each time the Government trial something, I ask them to go not for the easy towns and cities, but for rural and peripheral areas. Tourism is hugely important. It is the fastest-growing industry in the United Kingdom and in the world, and we have some of the best brands in...
