Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Night Flights: Regional Airports (30 Mar 2017)

Phil Wilson: What plans do the Government have for nationalising regional airports?

Vinovium House (8 Mar 2017)

Phil Wilson: Quite a few of the staff who work at Vinovium House live in Sedgefield. I have had several emails from staff who have a deep anxiety about the way they have been treated, their futures and where they might be transferred to. This is not just an issue for Bishop Auckland and Sedgefield. The staff live all over County Durham, and a lot of families will be affected.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (22 Feb 2017)

Petition - English Language and English Literature Gcse-Level Examinations (1 Feb 2017)

Phil Wilson: This petition is being lodged, and was organised by, year 11 pupils at Greenfield Community College. I would like to put on record the names of Aidan Wong, Melissa Foster and Christina Davies. The petition states: The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to provide a level playing field in the rules applied to English Language and English Literature...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill (31 Jan 2017)

Phil Wilson: I campaigned passionately during last year’s referendum for Britain to remain in the EU and still feel passionately about it. I remain deeply concerned about the outcome and what is to follow, but the British people voted to leave. As strongly as I hold my views, it is only right that the wishes of the majority of the British people should be respected, because the real decision to...

New Partnership with the EU (17 Jan 2017)

Phil Wilson: The Prime Minister said in her speech that we are leaving the single market and that she is going to negotiate a free trade agreement with the EU. She said that the free trade agreement “may take in elements of current single market arrangements in certain areas”. She continued: “If so…it is reasonable that we should make an appropriate contribution.” Will the...

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)

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...
