Canlyniadau 1–20 o 2931 ar gyfer speaker:Graham Stringer

Transport: Transport Connectivity: North-west (16 Mai 2024)

Graham Stringer: When will the Secretary of State improve on the timetable at the time of Gladstone?

Transport: Topical Questions (16 Mai 2024)

Graham Stringer: It is now exactly four months since the Avanti management were caught laughing at the Government —they are not on their own. They were laughing because they see the performance payments that the Government hand out to them as free money and a joke. When will the Secretary of State take the smile off the faces of the appalling Avanti management by finishing their contract?

Water Safety Education ( 7 Mai 2024)

Graham Stringer: I understand that there is agreement by John Cryer and the Minister for another hon. Member to participate in the debate. However, as is the convention for 30-minute debates, there will not be an opportunity for the Member in charge to wind up the debate.

Illegal Immigration: Costs — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] ( 7 Mai 2024)

Graham Stringer: Before I call Andrea Jenkyns, I have a note on the clocks. Most of them are either telling the wrong time or not working, so there will be no timing of the length of speeches. I do not think that there will be any pressure on time, because we do not have that many speakers. I am using the annunciator clock.

Illegal Immigration: Costs — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] ( 7 Mai 2024)

Graham Stringer: I remind hon. Members who wish to be called in the debate that they should indicate in the normal way by standing.

Lithium: Critical Minerals Supply — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (23 Ebr 2024)

Graham Stringer: The hon. Lady has made two significant points in a coherent speech. First, we will not be able to make use of natural resources in this country while our energy costs remain so high, and secondly, the planning regime that we operate in makes getting permission for the extraction of any minerals very difficult. Does she agree that deep in the Government, as the hon. Member for St Austell and...

Covid-19: Response and Excess Deaths (18 Ebr 2024)

Graham Stringer: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Christchurch (Sir Christopher Chope), who has done remarkably good work on vaccine-damaged people. I co-chair his all-party parliamentary group’s sister group, the APPG on pandemic response and recovery, which has allowed me to see that we have a whole body of expert opinion before us. Medics, lawyers, experts in childcare and a whole range of...

Covid-19: Response and Excess Deaths (18 Ebr 2024)

Graham Stringer: I agree with the hon. Gentleman to a point. In March, when the first decisions were made, nobody knew what was going to happen. There was a panic to go into lockdown, which was understandable while people were seeing what was going on, but very soon after that people did know. What I think was, and is, indefensible was to carry on with policies that we knew were damaging the economy and were...

Covid-19: Response and Excess Deaths (18 Ebr 2024)

Graham Stringer: No, I am not surprised about that. Inquiries take a long time and their reports and recommendations often gather dust. I have never made this point before, and I hope I am not going off-piste too much, Madam Deputy Speaker, but every time there is an horrific murder of a child we get a report with 90-odd recommendations, and the question is: does that protect the next child? No, it does not....

Covid-19: Response and Excess Deaths (18 Ebr 2024)

Graham Stringer: The hon. Gentleman makes a fair point, but I happen to know that in some local authorities, instructions went out to the people who were registering deaths essentially to say, “If there is a cough involved in this, we want it down as covid.” There was a different process because the health service was not working under normal—[Interruption.] If the hon. Gentleman wants to correct me, I...

Covid-19: Response and Excess Deaths (18 Ebr 2024)

Graham Stringer: I am not suggesting that at all. I am suggesting that at that time, when it was difficult to examine people because there was a distance between clinicians and the people who had suffered death, there was a temptation and a view that covid should go on the death certificates. I suggest no conspiracy, though. I do not believe in conspiracies.

Covid-19: Response and Excess Deaths (18 Ebr 2024)

Graham Stringer: The hon. Gentleman has made his point. I do not believe in conspiracies. I do believe that, from time to time, one gets a view, both in professions and outside professions, that pushes judgments in one particular direction. I believe there is one point on which we can reach a consensus in the debate: Government Ministers said that the vaccines were 100% safe—it was particularly egregious...

Covid-19: Response and Excess Deaths (18 Ebr 2024)

Graham Stringer: I am not familiar with that particular paper, but I agree with the hon. Gentleman that nothing is ever 100% safe and vaccines have an overall benefit. I am vaccinated against covid, as I have been vaccinated against many things over my lifetime. Vaccines have made the health of this country, and countries around the world that can afford vaccines, much better over many years.

Covid-19: Response and Excess Deaths (18 Ebr 2024)

Graham Stringer: Of course. I want to move on to excess deaths over the last couple of years, since covid, and the figures during covid. One of the ways of measuring the impact of covid was looking at excess deaths during covid. They were measured against a five-year average—that was the gold standard; it is the way it has been done—and that gave quite large figures. That is interesting given what has...

backbench business: LGBT History Month — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] ( 7 Maw 2024)

Graham Stringer: Order. I remind hon. Members that we are not pushed for time this afternoon. Interventions should be short and to the point.

backbench business: LGBT History Month — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] ( 7 Maw 2024)

Graham Stringer: Hon. Members who wish to speak should stand to indicate that wish, in the usual manner. I call Dame Angela Eagle.

Business and Trade: Infrastructure: Impact on Business Investment ( 7 Maw 2024)

Graham Stringer: If she will make an assessment of the potential impact of infrastructure on levels of business investment.

Business and Trade: Infrastructure: Impact on Business Investment ( 7 Maw 2024)

Graham Stringer: I do not think that any hon. or right hon. Member could disagree in general terms with the Minister’s reply. It would have been a more interesting reply if she had made an assessment of the reduction in investment since the cancellation of High Speed 2, because there is no doubt, as she said, that investment in rail infrastructure leads to business investment all along the route. We can see...

Prime Minister: Engagements ( 6 Maw 2024)

Graham Stringer: Last week, the Institute for Public Policy Research published a paper, “State of the North 2024”. That paper predicted that wealth inequalities, already too large between the north and the south-east, would increase to nearly £250,000 per head by the end of this decade. Does the Prime Minister accept that his levelling-up agenda has failed—or did he never want it to succeed?

Prime Minister: Engagements (21 Chw 2024)

Graham Stringer: The Prime Minister has been at it again. In a previous answer, he boasted about transferring investment from the north of England to the south. When he came to Manchester in the autumn to insult the people of the north of England and cancel HS2—proudly cancel it—was he aware then that, because the trains have to split without the HS2 lines and do not tilt, he would be slowing down...
