Sky/21ST Century Fox: Proposed Merger (6 Mar 2017)

Mark Pawsey: I thank the Secretary of State for coming to the House with the statement. On the basis that the merger would put the ownership of a large proportion of the UK media into one organisation, my constituents would want to know what she is able to do make sure that such an organisation is run by people who are appropriate and suitable.

Opel/Vauxhall: Sale to Psa Group (6 Mar 2017)

Mark Pawsey: The Secretary of State is right to draw attention to the transformation that has happened in the motor industry since the days when PSA were running and operating at Ryton. We now have an industry with world-leading expertise in autonomous vehicles and electric technology, which my right hon. Friend saw from Jaguar Land Rover on his recent visit to Warwick University. Does he agree that this...

Mark Pawsey: What steps his Department is taking to support smaller builders.

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Smaller Builders (27 Feb 2017)

Mark Pawsey: I thank the Minister for that answer, because the time it takes to get a site through the planning process is often a challenge for small builders, who are less able to bear the risk involved and the funding required. Will he continue with the reforms he is making to the planning system to ensure that local planning authorities can deal speedily with small sites?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (27 Feb 2017)

Mark Pawsey: What steps his Department is taking to promote the Global Britain campaign.

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Global Britain Campaign (21 Feb 2017)

Mark Pawsey: Does the Secretary of State agree that, in addition to defence spending, soft power—including the effective use of aid and increasing levels of trade and investment, which are helping businesses to find the most suitable partners—remains an essential part of the UK’s approach to boosting security in some of the more dangerous parts of the world?

State Pension: Working-Class Women (9 Feb 2017)

Mark Pawsey: You’re not a woman!

Unaccompanied Child Refugees: Business of the House (9 Feb 2017)

Mark Pawsey: I do not know whether you have ever attended a speedway meeting, Mr Speaker, but that fast, exciting motor sport has always attracted a family audience. Speedway racing has taken place at Brandon in my constituency since the early days of the sport in the 1920s. Unfortunately, as a consequence of a dispute over the use of the stadium at Brandon, the Coventry Bees will start the new season...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Mental Health: Children and Young People (7 Feb 2017)

Mark Pawsey: Will the Secretary of State say a little more about how children’s mental health services can work more closely with schools and the education system more broadly?

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: [2nd day] (1 Feb 2017)

Mark Pawsey: On the point about abiding by the result, will my hon. Friend, who has been a strong leaver, recognise the challenges that colleagues on the Opposition Benches face in walking through the Lobby with us today and appreciate the efforts that they have taken to honour the wishes of their constituents?

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: [2nd day] (1 Feb 2017)

Mark Pawsey: One of the benefits of making a later contribution to a debate is the opportunity to reflect on earlier speeches. The standout one for me came late yesterday evening, when my hon. Friend the Member for Boston and Skegness (Matt Warman), who supported remain in the referendum but represents a constituency that voted to leave, set out very clearly why it is important to recognise the...

School Funding (25 Jan 2017)

Mark Pawsey: Many parents are attracted to my constituency by the excellence of its schools. I look forward to visiting Oakfield Primary Academy and Brownsover Community School this Friday. We have a broad range of schools, including a bilateral school that provides co-educational grammar school places, which is incredibly popular and oversubscribed. Under the consultation, Warwickshire will remain one of...

Non-recyclable and Non-compostable Packaging — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (23 Jan 2017)

Mark Pawsey: Does my hon. Friend agree that fluctuations in the exchange rate may now provide additional incentives for manufacturers to use recycled material, as it will be proportionately less expensive?

Non-recyclable and Non-compostable Packaging — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (23 Jan 2017)

Mark Pawsey: It is a great pleasure to speak under your chairmanship, Mr Bone. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Northampton South (David Mackintosh) for securing this important and timely debate. I am chairman of the all-party group for the packaging manufacturing industry. I spent 25 years in the industry supplying packaging items, mostly to the food service industry. I agree with some of the...

Non-recyclable and Non-compostable Packaging — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (23 Jan 2017)

Mark Pawsey: The hon. Gentleman could start me off on coffee cups, but I will deal with them later in my remarks. We are talking about consumer choice, and we need an informed consumer. To go back to the Easter egg example, if we wanted only to give people a bit of nice chocolate, we would simply give them a chocolate bar. We do not do that; we choose to give them an Easter egg. In the same way, people...

Non-recyclable and Non-compostable Packaging — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (23 Jan 2017)

Mark Pawsey: The packaging industry is doing that. It is highly innovative and the amount of material that goes into the average Easter egg pack has been reduced. The process, which I will talk about later, is called light- weighting: using the least amount of material necessary to keep the products safe. Frankly, from the packaging manufacturers’ point of view, because their material is relatively...

Non-recyclable and Non-compostable Packaging — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (23 Jan 2017)

Mark Pawsey: In certain instances, that is the right thing to do. For example, where a coffee company serves coffee for consumption on the premises, a reusable cup that is then properly disinfected and washed is entirely the right thing to use, but not many coffee companies are happy to serve their coffee in a cup that has not been cleaned properly. If someone takes a reusable cup around with them, how...
