Opposition Day — [13th Allotted Day]: Trident Renewal (20 Ion 2015)

Nick Harvey: It is certainly true that very few NATO states possess nuclear weapons, although a few have them on their soil. Other Members have spoken about the nuclear umbrella, but none of us knows how real it is, and let us hope that it is never pushed to the test. We are asked to focus our minds on whether we should proceed with a replacement programme in 2016. It is not of course the Trident missile...

Opposition Day — [13th Allotted Day]: Trident Renewal (20 Ion 2015)

Nick Harvey: If the hon. Gentleman bears with me, I shall do my best to explain my position and where I am coming from. I profoundly agree that we should not allow the Barrow submarine-building capability to fall apart—if we do not place such orders at that shipyard in the next few years, it will be necessary to give it other contracts—but I do not support the construction of submarines whose sole...

Opposition Day — [13th Allotted Day]: Trident Renewal (20 Ion 2015)

Nick Harvey: No, because that would imply that we were in favour of a full-scale, like-for-like replacement of the Trident programme. [Interruption.] If one is going to be pedantic, the motion refers to a missile system that is not due for replacement for some years. In fact, what needs to be decided in the next year or so is whether we shall build new submarines. I think we should, but if we make such an...

Opposition Day — [13th Allotted Day]: Trident Renewal (20 Ion 2015)

Nick Harvey: I will give way to the hon. Gentleman in a moment, as I said I would. In this day and age, it does not make sense for us to go out to sea armed with nuclear weapons and on patrol when we do not believe, on our own assessment, that we face a primary threat. I do not believe that we have a nuclear adversary at this time, but in future we might reach a different conclusion and believe that the...

Opposition Day — [13th Allotted Day]: Trident Renewal (20 Ion 2015)

Nick Harvey: I do not think that I have made my point quite clear to the hon. Gentleman. I do not believe that we have a nuclear adversary, but I am saying that we should keep the component parts of the deterrent for the time being so that if in future we concluded that we did have such an adversary, we could resume patrols. I am absolutely with him in saying that for something to have a deterrent effect,...

Opposition Day — [13th Allotted Day]: Trident Renewal (20 Ion 2015)

Nick Harvey: I remind the hon. Lady that the national security strategy identified such a nuclear attack as a second level threat. I believe that we have potential nuclear adversaries, but I do not believe that we have actual nuclear adversaries at the moment. To be an actual adversary requires a combination of capability and intent. I can see plenty of countries with the capability but none with the...

Opposition Day — [13th Allotted Day]: Trident Renewal (20 Ion 2015)

Nick Harvey: The right hon. Lady makes a good point. If a threat emerges from nowhere, it will be either at the hands of terrorists or a by rogue state sponsored by terrorists, against which a conventional state-on-state nuclear deterrent of the sort that we have would have absolutely no value or purpose. It is important to remember that we have moral and legal obligations to try to bring about global...

Opposition Day — [13th Allotted Day]: Trident Renewal (20 Ion 2015)

Nick Harvey: I invite the Minister to look at how the NATO air-based nuclear capability in eastern Europe operates, because what I am describing is a precise replica of what goes on there. That capability is not on constant patrol or constantly armed; it exists in its component parts, and there is a well-rehearsed exercise for mobilising it and putting it together. Does that have a deterrent impact? I...

Opposition Day — [13th Allotted Day]: Trident Renewal (20 Ion 2015)

Nick Harvey: I am surprised to hear the hon. Gentleman make that case, because I believe he is right. After such a volley had been unleashed against us, no earthly good could possibly be done by firing one back in retaliation, and the more we think our way through that, the more pointless the whole exercise becomes. Indeed, it is not simply pointless, but the rest of the world is becoming increasingly...

Opposition Day — [13th Allotted Day]: Trident Renewal (20 Ion 2015)

Nick Harvey: indicated assent.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (19 Ion 2015)

Nick Harvey: Is the Minister aware that Chulmleigh academy in my constituency has been three quarters rebuilt for just £3.7 million, compared with the £18 million it was due to have cost under Building Schools for the Future? Given the school’s superb record of delivery and astonishing value for money, will Ministers smile upon the bid now in for funding for the last stage of this superb project?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Defence Capability (Conventional Weapons) (12 Ion 2015)

Nick Harvey: Given that RUSI is predicting that by the early 2020s the replacement of the nuclear deterrent will account for some 35% of the defence procurement budget, and given that this summer, whatever the outcome of the election, Ministers at the Ministry of Defence will be struggling to make limited resources pay for a long list of major procurements, could it possibly make sense to exclude from a...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Pupils: Disadvantaged (12 Ion 2015)

Nick Harvey: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, when her Department plans to release statistics on pupil premium take-up since September 2014.

Energy and Climate Change: Topical Questions (18 Rha 2014)

Nick Harvey: My right hon. Friend will be aware that the marine energy sector has recently had bad news with the proposed sale of Marine Current Turbines by Siemens and Pelamis going into administration. In the light of fierce competition from France, which has signed partnership agreements to develop two schemes off the Brittany coast, what is he going to do keep the UK at the forefront of this, and will...

UK Film Investment (Tax Relief) (16 Rha 2014)

Nick Harvey: I am not dissenting from the Minister’s proposition that the post-2007 arrangement has been better than the arrangement that ran for the previous 10 years. Nor would I take issue with his assertion that there was some abuse of the previous system. However, when he says that investors used those schemes for the purposes of tax avoidance, is he seriously contending that every single investor...

UK Film Investment (Tax Relief) (16 Rha 2014)

Nick Harvey: I am delighted to take the opportunity today to draw the House’s attention to the serious and widespread misapprehension about the current status of the tax affairs of those who, between 1997 and 2007, invested in the increasingly successful UK film industry, at the encouragement and incentivisation of the British Government. There is a general perception, perpetuated by the media and...

UK Film Investment (Tax Relief) (16 Rha 2014)

Nick Harvey: I entirely agree with the hon. Gentleman. This takes us back to 1997, in the midst of the “Cool Britannia” era, in which stars of film and pop attended parties at Nos. 10 and 11 Downing street and the then Chancellor, the right hon. Member for Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath (Mr Brown), introduced a full tax relief on investment in small-scale British films in order to encourage investment and...

UK Film Investment (Tax Relief) (16 Rha 2014)

Nick Harvey: I entirely agree with what the hon. Gentleman says. I think that this policy was a success and that one can visibly judge the tangible uplift in small film producing in Britain during the period that the tax relief existed. I think that the then Chancellor was right in March 2004 when he observed—this is widely recognised—that a minority of partnerships were abusing the tax relief, but...

UK Film Investment (Tax Relief) (16 Rha 2014)

Nick Harvey: My hon. Friend makes a series of very good points. These small films are something that Britain is good at. We have an international reputation in it and the developing creative industries in this country are something that we should celebrate, and yet investment in film is an inherently precarious thing to do. If it had not been, it would not have been necessary to contemplate these sorts of...
