Canlyniadau 1–20 o 7809 ar gyfer speaker:Geoffrey Clifton-Brown

Ukraine (20 Mai 2024)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: The Public Accounts Committee looked in great detail at how we built capacity during the covid pandemic for producing vaccines. Will the Minister look at the lessons learned in that campaign? In particular, during that campaign we invested directly in capacity, not through the firms that were producing. Will he look at that as a method of how we could rapidly build up our military capabilities?

Ukraine (20 Mai 2024)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: I think this House is at its best when we get serious issues of this kind, and those on all sides of the House are in agreement—broad agreement—about what needs to be done. We have heard some excellent and informed speeches from both sides. I think the announcements made at the beginning of this debate by the Deputy Foreign Secretary are very welcome, particularly the £3 billion this...

Ukraine (20 Mai 2024)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: I entirely accept what the hon. Gentleman has said. As Russian advances were being made in Ukraine, Vladimir Putin was making a state visit to China, in a show of strength. China is the largest investor in Ukraine after Russia, and it is propping up the ailing Russian economy by buying a significant quantity of Russian oil and gas at cheap prices. China could have a significant influence on...

Ukraine (20 Mai 2024)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: The news that my right hon. Friend has given the House this afternoon on the amount of military equipment and money going into Ukraine is greatly encouraging. Britain has courageously led the world on co-ordinating the effort against Russia’s operation in Ukraine, supported, of course, by the Americans and, to be fair, the Germans, but we three nations cannot do it all. What is my right...

Agriculture (13 Mai 2024)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: I am grateful to my right hon. Friend for giving way, and I apologise to the House for not being present at the opening stages of this debate; I was in the Public Accounts Committee. I also declare my interest as a working farmer. Does he agree that there is a danger in this system that if farmers’ incomes get squeezed, it is the infrastructure that is likely to suffer? Will he make sure...

War in Gaza ( 7 Mai 2024)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: Israel is our friend and ally, but that does not stop us questioning its actions. My right hon. Friend the Deputy Foreign Secretary says that he wants to see much more aid getting into Gaza. The actions in Gaza over the weekend have only made those miles-long queues of lorries even greater. Air and sea drops are difficult. Will he today, on behalf of the Government, appeal to our allies to...

Renters (Reform) Bill: Schedule 5 - Application of Chapter 1 of Part 1 to existing tenancies: transitional provision (24 Ebr 2024)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: Surely the whole point of a tribunal is for the tribunal judge to set what he thinks is a fair market price. It might go up, it might go down or it might stay the same, but that is the whole point of a tribunal.

Renters (Reform) Bill: New Clause 15 - Notices to quit by tenants under assured tenancies: timing (24 Ebr 2024)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: In rural areas such as mine where housing is already very expensive, more and more landlords are already deciding that letting their properties out is not worth the candle. They will therefore sell them, and the effect will be that there are fewer and fewer properties to rent. Those that are available will therefore go up and up in price and our youngsters will struggle to get on to the...

Cyber-security and UK Democracy (25 Maw 2024)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: We know that legacy IT systems are most likely to be cyber-attacked. Has the Deputy Prime Minister ordered an inventory of all Government IT equipment, to see where particular vulnerabilities lie?

Income Tax (Charge) ( 7 Maw 2024)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: I am delighted to have caught your eye in this important Budget debate, Madam Deputy Speaker. I am also pleased to follow the hon. Member for Warwick and Leamington (Matt Western), although I disagree with almost every word he said. That is the nature of this place —we are entitled to debate these matters. I have listened to the speeches from Opposition Members today. Both they and most...

Income Tax (Charge) ( 7 Maw 2024)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: Let me make one important point, which I hope the hon. Gentleman will consider when he intervenes. Yesterday the Chancellor said that, through our tax cuts and by raising the personal allowance, the tax on ordinary working people today is at its lowest level since 1975, and possibly since the war, although we do not have records to prove that. It is lower than in America, France, Germany or...

Income Tax (Charge) ( 7 Maw 2024)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: I think the hon. Gentleman is misrepresenting what my right hon. Friend the Chancellor said yesterday. I have Hansard here. I cannot look through it quickly enough to give the exact wording the Chancellor used, but he basically said that when the economy is in a fit state to so do, and when economic conditions allow, such a move is an ambition—that is not a promise or a commitment to...

Income Tax (Charge) ( 7 Maw 2024)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: I will give way to the hon. Gentleman, but I hope he is not going to misrepresent what the Chancellor said. I will have to get it in Hansard, but I will give him one more chance.

Income Tax (Charge) ( 7 Maw 2024)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for intervening a second time, because I now have the exact words from Hansard. The Chancellor said: “When it is responsible, when it can be achieved without increasing borrowing, and when it can be delivered without compromising high-quality public services, we will continue to cut national insurance as we have done today, so that we truly make work...

Income Tax (Charge) ( 7 Maw 2024)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: Again, I hope we will not have my right hon. Friend’s welcome ambition to reduce national insurance traduced in the way that it has been. I do not think we will get very far by continuing that argument. Indeed, you will probably reprimand me, Madam Deputy Speaker, if I go too far down that rabbit hole. I was going on to say that it is not just workers, through the reduction in national...

Income Tax (Charge) ( 7 Maw 2024)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: My hon. Friend is entirely right. The Chancellor’s announcement in the autumn statement of £10 billion for full business expensing was one of the most important economic announcements of this entire Conservative Government. He is trying to address the problem of leasing that my hon. Friend just asked about. That is contained in the Red Book and the Chancellor is now looking at that...

Income Tax (Charge) ( 7 Maw 2024)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: My right hon. Friend is making a good case for yesterday’s announcements in the Budget. He has dealt very thoroughly with Labour’s record when in office, but will he turn his attention to its present proposals? If Labour will not reverse the tax on non-doms or the cuts to national insurance, does that not leave a whopping £6.5 billion in uncosted expenditure pledges?

Farming ( 4 Maw 2024)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: Thank you for allowing me to catch your eye, Madam Deputy Speaker, in this important debate on farming, during which we have heard words of wisdom from no less than two former Secretaries of State and a number of other colleagues, so important points have already been covered. I start by declaring my interest as a lifelong farmer, so I may have a few points I can add. We have had an uncertain...

Farming ( 4 Maw 2024)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: If Madam Deputy Speaker will allow me to give way and increase my time a bit, I will happily do so.

Farming ( 4 Maw 2024)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman, who has only just come into the debate. We on the Public Accounts Committee given a lot of attention to the work of the Environment Agency. It could do much more not only to promote new flooding schemes, but to maintain its existing flooding schemes, which would help protect a number of farms and houses. I strongly support the Government’s policy of...
