Backbench Business: Clean Water and Sanitation (Africa) — [Andrew Percy in the Chair] (21 Apr 2016)

Andrew Percy: rose—

Schools White Paper (13 Apr 2016)

Andrew Percy: I am pleased that this is such a popular intervention. My right hon. Friend has just referred to the role of local authorities. Some authorities have clearly frustrated the academy process, but that has not been the case in North Lincolnshire. May I commend to my right hon. Friend the model of educational standards boards that we have established there? Even post-academisation, the local...

Schools White Paper (13 Apr 2016)

Andrew Percy: I declare an interest as the chairman of governors of Goole Academy, an academy school that is doing very well. In north Lincolnshire, we have had a big academisation programme, and we have gone from having 38% of kids in good and outstanding schools to having 92% of children in such schools. Although I may agree with some of the points that the hon. Lady has made, will she confirm that the...

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

Andrew Percy: As someone who believes that people in England should have a measure of devolution in response to the devolution that exists in the rest of the country, I would like to ask my right hon. Friend to confirm what actually happened today—that irrespective of whether Sunday trading is a good thing or a bad thing, the majority of English Members of Parliament voted in support of giving our...

UK Energy Market (9 Mar 2016)

Andrew Percy: Order. The hon. Gentleman should have had five minutes, although he is within his rights to take more as we have more time, but he will shortly have been speaking for 13 minutes, which will leave a similar time for the Minister. It would be courteous if he concluded shortly so that the Minister may have the appropriate time.

UK Energy Market (9 Mar 2016)

Andrew Percy: Order. The hon. Gentleman has had substantially longer than the Minister will have, which is a discourtesy to her. Although it is in order for him to speak for longer than the allotted time, will he draw to a close within seconds and give the Minister the courtesy of responding?

Scotch Whisky Industry — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (9 Mar 2016)

Andrew Percy: It is not the Humber.

Scotch Whisky Industry — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (9 Mar 2016)

Andrew Percy: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mrs Moon. I congratulate the hon. Member for Argyll and Bute (Brendan O'Hara) on securing this important debate in support of the whisky industry, which is important not only to Scotland but to the whole of the United Kingdom. I declare an interest as an avid Scotch drinker. In fact, I drink all sorts of whisky, whether it is Arkansas rye...

Scotch Whisky Industry — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (9 Mar 2016)

Andrew Percy: I do have sympathy with that. It was nice to hear the hon. Member for Argyll and Bute pay tribute to the Chancellor, which is not something I often do either. He was correct to do so on this issue, because the calls that were made last year were successful. We have all seen the incredibly positive impact that has had on the supply chain and jobs, and if there could be movement again, that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (9 Mar 2016)

Andrew Percy: A recent study led by Imperial College has shown that biomass, if progressed through contracts for difference, could save bill payers and the Treasury billions of pounds. This industry supports thousands of jobs in the Humber, and in the constituencies of my hon. Friends the Members for Selby and Ainsty (Nigel Adams) and for Cleethorpes (Martin Vickers). There is a sustainable business model....

Uk Steel Industry (29 Feb 2016)

Andrew Percy: There is nothing more cruel to steelworkers, many thousands of whom I am proud to represent, than suggesting that all of the solutions to this crisis are in the hands of the British Government. For the record again, will the Secretary of State make it absolutely clear whether the British Government can unilaterally impose the tariffs? If not, will he confirm that it is for the European Union...

Uk Steel Industry (29 Feb 2016)

Andrew Percy: I hope that my right hon. Friend will take note of the Tata support fund that has been launched in north Lincolnshire for those in the supply chain. On the question of likely state support for the Greybull sale, which we are all behind, will he go into a little more detail about what that might look like and at what level it might be set?

EU Referendum: Civil Service Guidance (29 Feb 2016)

Andrew Percy: Talking of guidance, my association was this morning issued with guidance from our north of England field director stating: “The Party is neutral, which means that as an organisation we are not getting involved in any way on an official basis. In practice this means that Associations must not use any resources available to them, including money, data, premises etc. to promote a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Israeli Election (23 Feb 2016)

Andrew Percy: On the issue of words, something that is regularly rubbished is the issue of incitement. We are seeing increasing incitement from the Palestinian Authority and on media such as Palestinian TV, some of which has been referenced by those committing knife attacks on civilians. Last week I visited a Jewish school in Brussels, where I heard some appalling stories of anti-Semitism being perpetrated...

Humber Energy Estuary (9 Feb 2016)

Andrew Percy: The Minister is right to mention the huge investment at Immingham in biomass that feeds Drax, which is a massive employer. With the use of coal stopping by 2025, will she commit that biomass will remain an option for energy generation into the future, and that Drax, which has several more units yet to be converted, will be able to bid for that? I have a new role as trade envoy to Canada, so...

Humber Energy Estuary (9 Feb 2016)

Andrew Percy: Goole.

Social Mobility Index (9 Feb 2016)

Andrew Percy: Very briefly, I call Rupa Huq to speak.
