Housing in Kent — [Sir Alan Meale in the Chair] (2 Nov 2016)

Kelly Tolhurst: I, too, congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this debate. In Medway alone, we are facing an arbitrary demand for an extra 30,000 houses.

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

Kelly Tolhurst: I voted to remain, and the decision was difficult for me. I did so not out of love for the European Union but because at that particular time I thought it the best way to use my personal vote. At the time, however, I could have also constructed an argument to leave. I want to back up what my hon. Friend the Member for North East Hampshire (Mr Jayawardena) was saying earlier about...

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

Kelly Tolhurst: May I carry on? Those three principles are payments, freedom of movement and regulation, which were all addressed by the leave campaign before the referendum. I am fed up with those who argue that we must agree with all the negotiations and that we must vote on the final deal. The final deal will be what it will be. After negotiations with member states, this Government will make a deal with...
