Foreign Aid Expenditure — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (13 Jun 2016)

Andrew Percy: I mentioned patronising and sniffy, and the hon. Gentleman’s intervention is a prime example. It was so patronising it is not worthy of a response. Members are allowed to come to this Chamber and speak as they wish on a matter of international aid, and this about international aid from British taxpayers’ money. The hon. Gentleman can patronise all he wants, but I won’t be...

Foreign Aid Expenditure — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (13 Jun 2016)

Andrew Percy: I am conscious of time, and I will perhaps give way to the Minister in a moment. The hon. Gentleman is entirely right in a lot of what he says. The Overseas Development Institute stated that our aid money to the Palestinian Authority had failed to promote peace and a peaceful attitude. There is more to be done. I mentioned a terrorist who confessed that he had engaged in his behaviour to...

Foreign Aid Expenditure — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (13 Jun 2016)

Andrew Percy: I will give way to the Minister out of respect.

Foreign Aid Expenditure — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (13 Jun 2016)

Andrew Percy: I thank the Minister and I hope that he will look at the Ibda’a cultural centre grant that I mentioned. In my last minute or so, I want to talk about some of the co-existence projects. We had a wonderful meeting last year in Jerusalem with a group of Palestinian and Jewish young people from MEET—the Middle East Entrepreneurs of Tomorrow. It was a really inspiring meeting. Those...

Foreign Aid Expenditure — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (13 Jun 2016)

Andrew Percy: Has my hon. Friend seen the report from the Overseas Development Institute, which found that some of the funding that has gone to the Palestinian territories has resulted in an increase in violence? That is why the Department are re-looking at it.

Conveyancing (7 Jun 2016)

Andrew Percy: Let’s minute that.

Conveyancing (7 Jun 2016)

Andrew Percy: Oh!

Support for Life-shortening Conditions — [Andrew Percy in the Chair] (7 Jun 2016)

Andrew Percy: Five people wish to speak, which works out at about 8.6 minutes each—not that I have used my calculator. This is an important debate, and it is important to get everyone in before I call the first of the Front Benchers at half-past 10.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Employment Trends (7 Jun 2016)

Andrew Percy: Alongside genocide and war, we hear all about the threat to jobs of leaving the European Union. Will my hon. Friend tell me what will be done if we vote to stay in and continue to have unlimited immigration from 27 foreign countries? What will be done to protect my constituents, low-paid workers who have seen their wages flatline because of unlimited immigration?

EU Referendum Leaflet — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (9 May 2016)

Andrew Percy: Is not the situation even worse than that? The official policy of the party of government is neutrality.

EU Referendum Leaflet — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (9 May 2016)

Andrew Percy: I used my leaflet to light my fire on a cold Yorkshire night; it was a thoroughly useful use of taxpayers’ money. Is not a more important point that, if we vote to remain in by a very small margin—say, less than in the Scottish referendum—a large part of the electorate, including many in my constituency, will feel that the result has been fiddled precisely because of this...

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Digital Industries (3 May 2016)

Andrew Percy: I was at a breakfast meeting this morning with digitech companies from Vancouver in British Columbia that are here on an inward trade mission, looking at investing in the UK. Does the Minister agree that this dangerous and damaging remain campaign, which is based wholly on a fear of leaving the European Union that is not justified, is going to do great damage? Has he done any assessment of...

Business of the House (28 Apr 2016)

Andrew Percy: As we are talking about the dodgy behaviour of police and crime commissioner candidates, may I say to the Leader of the House that a number of folk standing for election next week are ex-coppers trading on their record as police officers? Does he agree that the Government should bring forward proposals to ensure that ex-police officers standing to be PCCs make their police service record...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (28 Apr 2016)

Andrew Percy: We have been very positive about the new Northern rail franchise. However, there are throngs of people who want to get from Leeds to Goole but cannot do that at the moment; there may even be some who wish to get from Goole to Leeds. The situation is the same on the Brigg to Sheffield line. Both lines are very under-utilised, so what opportunities are there under the new franchising agreements...

Coal-fired Power Stations — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (27 Apr 2016)

Andrew Percy: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Coal-fired Power Stations — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (27 Apr 2016)

Andrew Percy: I declare an interest: I live opposite the Drax power station and a small wind farm. People are taxed by the wind farm, which does not create any jobs, and very supportive of the power station, which does. Does my hon. Friend agree that biomass makes sense, not only on a cost basis, but because the industry supports jobs in the UK in a way that some of the alternatives do not? He mentioned...

Coal-fired Power Stations — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (27 Apr 2016)

Andrew Percy: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this debate. I know of her close interest in this issue. Those of us who are members of the all-party parliamentary group on biomass have continued to push the fact that biomass is the cheapest form of renewable energy in this country, but under the contracts for difference scheme it is currently outside of future bidding. Does she agree that it makes...

Coal-fired Power Stations — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (27 Apr 2016)

Andrew Percy: Some have glory thrust upon them.

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

Andrew Percy: Some have greatness thrust upon them.

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

Andrew Percy: The Front Benchers will be called at the usual time. There is plenty of time for the debate, so there is no need for a time limit or anything like that.
