Local Government Finance Settlement (19 Dec 2017)

Andrew Percy: On children’s services, may I urge my right hon. Friend not to take lectures from the Labour party but to look at what is going on in Conservative-run North Lincolnshire Council, where we have turned children’s services around to such an extent that they are one of only three to be rated as outstanding? There is a particular emphasis on the social enterprise PHASE, which is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: North Wales Growth Deal (13 Dec 2017)

Andrew Percy: What progress has been made on delivering a growth deal for north Wales.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: North Wales Growth Deal (13 Dec 2017)

Andrew Percy: The hon. Gentleman will remember from the joint ministerial visits we undertook to both Chester and north Wales that there is enthusiasm for this deal on both sides of the border. Can he assure me that that enthusiasm will carry through not just to the north-west of England but all the way through to the Humber region, given the alliances between Liverpool and Hull?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Victims of Domestic Violence: Social Housing (4 Dec 2017)

Andrew Percy: What steps his Department is taking to ensure access to safe social housing for victims of domestic violence.

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Victims of Domestic Violence: Social Housing (4 Dec 2017)

Andrew Percy: Members on both sides of the House hold Women’s Aid in high regard. It has stated that the Government’s new model will close refuges. What assurance can the Minister give the House that that will not be the case?

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Yemen (29 Nov 2017)

Andrew Percy: The situation for Yemen’s remaining Jews is harrowing, particularly for those outside the capital. What work is her Department doing to support the work of other Government Departments in helping to provide safe passage to other countries for these individuals?

Defence Aerospace Industrial Strategy (16 Nov 2017)

Andrew Percy: The Hawk aircraft is incredibly important to my constituents, many of whom work at BAE Systems in Brough. As well the work the Government are rightly doing to support the Hawk overseas, bringing forward the Red Arrows replacement aircraft would fill part of the gap in the order book, as the hon. Lady has outlined. Could that not also be done in such a way as to support the development of new...

Defence Aerospace Industrial Strategy (16 Nov 2017)

Andrew Percy: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Defence Aerospace Industrial Strategy (16 Nov 2017)

Andrew Percy: We are both very young Members. [Interruption.] Well, it appears there is not so much agreement about that in my case. On the age of the aircraft, have there not been some really troubling reports about just how few of our current Red Arrows aircraft are actually able to fly at any one time? That is why the 2030 date seems somewhat strange to many of the people who are intimately involved in...

Balfour Declaration (30 Oct 2017)

Andrew Percy: Is it not the case that the rights of non-Jews in the state of Israel are 100% protected as per the Balfour declaration? Does the Foreign Secretary not agree that it would be wholly inappropriate and wrong for anyone to seek to use this centenary to perpetuate the myth and falsehood that the failure to establish a Palestinian state is wholly the responsibility of Israel, because to do so...

Centenary of the Balfour Declaration (25 Oct 2017)

Centenary of the Balfour Declaration (25 Oct 2017)

Andrew Percy: Just to be clear, when the hon. and learned Lady talks about treatment of different groups under Israeli law, she is not suggesting for a moment, is she, that Israeli Arabs are in any way different from Israeli Jews or Christians before the courts and law of Israel?

Centenary of the Balfour Declaration (25 Oct 2017)

Andrew Percy: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing the debate. Is it not also true that we will not get to a peaceful situation if people attend events, for example, where individuals hold signs or sing, “From Jordan to the sea, Palestine will be free”? Must we not remember the loss of citizenship and the pogroms that happened to the Jewish people in the Arab world between 1948 and 1972...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Digital Infrastructure (24 Oct 2017)

Andrew Percy: What recent investment the Government have provided for digital infrastructure.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Digital Infrastructure (24 Oct 2017)

Andrew Percy: The vast majority of my constituents in east Yorkshire and north Lincolnshire now enjoy superfast broadband, but a small number in rural areas still struggle with access to broadband and to good 4G, 3G or even 2G mobile coverage. What more can the Government do to give BT Openreach and the mobile networks a kick up the backside to make sure that we get the coverage that we are all paying for?

European Union (Approvals) Bill: Approval of draft decisions under Article 352 of TFEU (10 Oct 2017)

Andrew Percy: I have spoken during a previous stage of this legislation and am happy to do so again. Before I begin on the Bill, I have to take issue with the shadow Minister’s use of the phrase “Trump regime”. This really is the sort of childish politics that we have come to expect from the Opposition. Never mind various shadow Ministers popping along on certain strong leaders’...

European Union (Approvals) Bill: Approval of draft decisions under Article 352 of TFEU (10 Oct 2017)

Andrew Percy: I wish to forget that the hon. Gentleman was speaking, given, again, the nonsense he was trotting out that in some way this is Parliament’s failure. He clearly does not understand how European decision making has evolved through the various European treaties over the years and how the role of this House in that legislative process has been diminished. He is a member of a party that...

European Union (Approvals) Bill: Approval of draft decisions under Article 352 of TFEU (10 Oct 2017)

Andrew Percy: I only got a C in GCSE maths, so I am afraid I cannot do such advanced sums involving so many numbers at any one time, but it is certainly a lot, and it is certainly the case that the position taken depends on which shadow Ministers—be they impressive or unimpressive—pop up on the television screen. Let me now deal with the broader relationship with Canada. This whole...
