Chilcot Inquiry and Parliamentary Accountability (30 Nov 2016)

Phil Wilson: I congratulate the hon. Member for Witney (Robert Courts) on his maiden speech. I know how difficult it is to make a maiden speech when your predecessor was Prime Minister, and the hon. Gentleman did an excellent job. I want to make a couple of points about why the motion is about more than just Chilcot, and about how divisive it actually is. My predecessor was Member of Parliament for...

Chilcot Inquiry and Parliamentary Accountability (30 Nov 2016)

Phil Wilson: We should be proud of Tony Blair. We know about the efforts he is putting into the middle east and interfaith dialogue around the world. He spends most of his time with his charities trying to achieve those aims. Some people want to define themselves against Tony Blair and the 1997 to 2010 Labour Governments. To them I say, “Be careful, because it is not useful or a good idea to define...

Backbench Business (17 Nov 2016)

Phil Wilson: Before I call the Front Benchers, I remind Members that I would like to leave a couple of minutes for the mover of the motion to sum up at the end.

Backbench Business (17 Nov 2016)

Phil Wilson: Because we donated 15 minutes to the Division, we will now finish at 4.45 pm. I want to bring in the Front Benchers at quarter past 4. I reiterate that if people limit the time that they take, everyone should get in. I call Marcus Fysh to continue his speech.

Backbench Business (17 Nov 2016)

Phil Wilson: If hon. Members keep their remarks as brief as that, we may get everyone in.

Backbench Business (17 Nov 2016)

Phil Wilson: Order. May I respectfully remind the hon. Gentleman that he has been on his feet for nine minutes, and quite a few other Members want to get into the debate. If he is nearing the end of his speech, I think that everyone will appreciate that.

Backbench Business (17 Nov 2016)

Phil Wilson: As quite a few hon. Members want to take part in the debate, I ask them to restrict their comments. I do not want to introduce a time limit, but it might come to that, so hon. Members need to be careful about interventions.

HS2 Update (15 Nov 2016)

Phil Wilson: Hitachi Rail Europe in Newton Aycliffe in my constituency is well placed to manufacture the rolling stock for HS2. It has a long track record of more than 50 years of building high-speed trains, such as the bullet train in the 1960s in Tokyo. Will the Secretary of State outline the procurement timeline in the coming years, and will he tell us when the rolling stock will start to be produced?

Community Pharmacies (2 Nov 2016)

Phil Wilson: In my constituency, there are 22 pharmacies. Some 60% are not eligible for the pharmacy access scheme, which, I understand, is based on distance between pharmacies and does not take into consideration deprivation and other health issues. It is predicted that of the 22, six will close. In the Durham, Darlington and Tees area, there are 271 pharmacies, issuing 2.5 million prescriptions a month...

Nissan: Sunderland (31 Oct 2016)

Phil Wilson: The news about Nissan in the north-east is brilliant, but there are other strategic industries in the north-east of England. I include Hitachi Rail Europe in my constituency, which opened a 90 million factory last year, employing almost 1,000 people and hundreds more in the supply chain. Hitachi Rail Europe is here for the long term to have access to the European market. At the moment,...

Defence Expenditure — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (27 Oct 2016)

Phil Wilson: It is a pleasure to speak under your chairmanship, Mr Bone. This debate is about what sort of country we see ourselves as being. I have always seen the UK as a force for good, and I mean that not just in military terms but in our humanitarian role in the world and how we have defended liberal democracy over the decades. The issue is not just the 2% pledge, but whether we have the capability...

Leaving the EU: North-East Exports (25 Oct 2016)

Phil Wilson: I thank all hon. Members who have contributed to the debate, especially my colleagues from the north-east of England. I want to make one or two points. The Office for National Statistics may have said the 350 million figure was wrong, but people believed it. They did not consult the ONS’s website to see whether it was accurate, they just accepted it. I picked Nissan as an example...

Leaving the EU: North-East Exports (25 Oct 2016)

Phil Wilson: I beg to move, That this House has considered the effect on exports from the North East of the UK leaving the EU. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. We all agree that the British people’s decision on 23 June to leave the EU was the most profound decision to affect this country since the second world war. I, like many in the House, very much wanted the UK...

Leaving the EU: North-East Exports (25 Oct 2016)

Phil Wilson: My hon. Friend makes an important point. So much of Brexit has to be sorted out, and I do not know the answers, but I hope that the Minister will enlighten us. There will, however, be major consequences for industry in this country, but especially in the north-east, where a lot of our manufacturing industry is. It employs a lot of people there and provides skills that we need to revitalise...
