Canlyniadau 21–40 o 396 ar gyfer speaker:Brendan Clarke-Smith

Independent School Fees: VAT (21 Chw 2024)

Brendan Clarke-Smith: I am very blessed to have two excellent independent schools in my constituency, Worksop College and Ranby House, and I speak as a former head of an independent school myself. We also have some excellent state schools at the Outwood Grange Academies Trust that give outstanding opportunities to local pupils. Does the Minister agree that the knock-on effect of this is not spoken about enough?...

Post Office Governance and Horizon Compensation Schemes (19 Chw 2024)

Brendan Clarke-Smith: Too often, quango bosses are rewarded for failure and can walk away with big payouts, and it would be a disgrace for the man who has done so little to get compensation for postmasters to get any himself. Can the Secretary of State confirm that she will block any such payments?

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Plastics: Waste Disposal (19 Chw 2024)

Brendan Clarke-Smith: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, if he will make an assessment of the potential impact of plastic pyrolysis plants on the environment in (a) residential and (b) other areas.

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Flood Control: Bassetlaw (22 Ion 2024)

Brendan Clarke-Smith: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, if he will take steps to support the Environment Agency to produce a flood prevention business plan for Bassetlaw constituency.

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Flood Control: Bassetlaw (16 Ion 2024)

Brendan Clarke-Smith: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what remediation and flood prevention work his Department has carried out in (a) Worksop, (b) Retford and (c) the district of Bassetlaw in each of the last three years.

Arms Export Licences: Israel — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (12 Rha 2023)

Brendan Clarke-Smith: It is, as always, a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Christopher. I thank the hon. Member for Coventry South (Zarah Sultana) for bringing the debate to this Chamber. Hamas’s barbaric 7 October attack on Israel featured unspeakable acts of brutality and sexual violence. The attacks left 1,200 dead and thousands injured and the bodies of many victims remain unidentifiable due...

Arms Export Licences: Israel — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (12 Rha 2023)

Brendan Clarke-Smith: I thank my hon. Friend for his intervention. He is, of course, absolutely right: Israel does have the right to defend itself. I would argue that the biggest threat to the Palestinian people is not Israel, but Hamas. We must bear that in mind.

Arms Export Licences: Israel — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (12 Rha 2023)

Brendan Clarke-Smith: It is very important when anybody takes any sort of action that civilians are protected. As with all wars, there are casualties. I wish Hamas had borne that in mind when they started this and broke the ceasefire in the first place. However, with any action that is taken, I would protect civilians and ensure that there are safe routes and humanitarian pauses so that we can ensure that we save...

Arms Export Licences: Israel — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (12 Rha 2023)

Brendan Clarke-Smith: I will give way to the hon. Lady first and then to the hon. Gentleman.

Arms Export Licences: Israel — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (12 Rha 2023)

Brendan Clarke-Smith: I thank the hon. Lady for her intervention, but I think it is wrong to imply, as the debate appears to, that Israel alone is responsible for the current situation in Gaza. Hamas have ruthlessly controlled Gaza now for almost two decades, and have inflicted a great amount of suffering on the civilian population. They have also deliberately prioritised this genocidal terrorism with direct...

Arms Export Licences: Israel — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (12 Rha 2023)

Brendan Clarke-Smith: I disagree with the hon. Gentleman that a blank cheque has been provided. If we look at the comments of the Foreign Secretary and the former Foreign Secretary, we know we have spoken with our international partners and are very keen to see that two-state solution, and that means working with Palestinians as well. As I said, the biggest enemy of the Palestinian people is Hamas; we want to work...

Arms Export Licences: Israel — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (12 Rha 2023)

Brendan Clarke-Smith: The hon. Gentleman makes an excellent point; he is absolutely correct on the Hezbollah situation. This conflict involves several different sides—I mentioned Iranian involvement—and there are a number of people who simply do not want peace in the region as it is not in their interests, whether that involves funding groups such as Hezbollah or such as Hamas. Israel was looking at a deal on...

Gender Recognition ( 6 Rha 2023)

Brendan Clarke-Smith: I thank the Secretary of State for reassuring us that the Government remain committed to protecting women’s rights and children with policies that are based on biological reality, not extreme ideology that conflates sex and gender. Does she agree that today’s statement will help to stop people finding loopholes around this?

Legal Migration ( 4 Rha 2023)

Brendan Clarke-Smith: I warmly welcome the measures. I thank the Home Secretary for his highly robust statement and the Immigration Minister for his excellent work, which responds to the concerns of my constituents in Bassetlaw and the constituents of other Members. Does my right hon. Friend agree that the measures mean we will continue to bring the brightest and best to this country, as well as those seeking help...

Illegal Immigration (15 Tach 2023)

Brendan Clarke-Smith: I welcome the Home Secretary to his place and thank him for the outstanding job he did in his previous brief. Rwanda is a country that we do business with, a country with a thriving economy, and a country that the Leader of the Opposition’s football team even promotes as a tourist destination. Bearing that in mind, will the Government consider whether it may be appropriate to add Rwanda to...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill: New Clause 1 - Impact assessment: trade and diplomatic relations (25 Hyd 2023)

Brendan Clarke-Smith: I agree 100% with the right hon. Lady that we must be moderate in our tone and the language we use. Does she agree it was therefore very unhelpful for the Scottish Labour leader to use terms accusing Israel of breaching international law when we are discussing such a sensitive subject?

Storm Babet: Flooding (23 Hyd 2023)

Brendan Clarke-Smith: I thank the Secretary of State for her visit to Retford and Ordsall today to meet some of the hundreds of people who were evacuated, such as those in Darrel Road, and to see the devastation at first hand. For many of those residents, it is not the first time that this has happened. I also thank the Minister for her reassurance that we will provide as much support as possible, and will invest...

Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Med 2023)

Brendan Clarke-Smith: This week, we were hit by the devastating news that all Wilko stores would be closing, meaning the loss of 12,500 jobs. Bassetlaw and Worksop are the home of Wilko’s headquarters and a distribution centre, where 1,500 jobs are set to go. Wilko has been mismanaged for years. In the past decade, more than £77 million has been paid out to shareholders, and recently the HQ was sold for £48...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill: Examination of Witnesses ( 7 Med 2023)

Brendan Clarke-Smith: Thank you for your input today. You mentioned that people may be subject to equalities claims with the way the law is at the moment. Do you not feel that having a clear policy on this, both nationally and in terms of foreign policy, can protect local authorities if they diverge from it? That is why this Bill makes the picture a lot clearer for local authorities and avoids that situation...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill: Examination of Witnesses ( 5 Med 2023)

Brendan Clarke-Smith: Q Some have suggested that it is rather pointless to implement a ban if you have a toothless enforcement regime. Do you agree that it therefore needs to be sufficiently robust if we are to introduce this regime?
