Prime Minister's Questions: 5 June 2019 - D-Day Anniversary, trade deals with the US, steel industry
Order, questions. To. The Prime Minister, Tim. Loughton I. Have. Been asked to reply my, right, honourable friends. My. My. Rifle of a friend the Prime Minister, is today, with. Other world leaders in, Portsmouth. To commemorate, the 75th, anniversary of, the d-day landings. That. Operation, involved. Though, this this. Event. Today will involve more than, 4,000. Personnel in, d-day. Events, in the United Kingdom and in France and it. Will involve representatives. From every country, that fought alongside United, Kingdom in Operation, Overlord and. Appropriately. Our former, adversaries. As well and. I'm sure that members. Right across the house, will. Want to join me in paying, tribute to the. Sacrifice, of those. Who fought to, secure. The Liberty and peace. That, we enjoy, today and, for. The courage, that made. Possible, then the, restoration, of democracy. Human. Rights and the, rule of law to our continent, of Europe. Mr.. Speaker I'm, sure, also that, the, whole house will want to join me in sending our very. Best wishes to our, Muslim, constituents. Here in the United Kingdom and to. Muslims, around the world, celebrating. Eid alpha-2 I had. Meetings with, ministerial. Colleagues, and others earlier today and actually having further such meetings later on today Tim Loughton. Mr.. Speakers the Chancellor says today in Portsmouth, and tomorrow in Normandy, we honor the veterans of, 150,000. British American Canadian and other, Allied troops who led the charge to liberate, Europe against, the, real Nazi, scum, so. Does my right honourable friend agree that when a minority, of hate fuel demonstrators. Yell, Nazi, scum in the faces of American, tourists, and intimidate. Others legitimately, welcoming, the visit of the American president however we may take issue with him and regrettably. Spurred, on by certain, honorable members of this house that, they attacked the greatest, alliance of free nations and they, demean the memory of those brave troops and veterans whose, very sacrifice, secured, the right of all of us. Mr.. Speaker, I, agreed. With, every word that my, on. Door friends has just said, and I, think that it's worth reminding ourselves that. The. The, fact that we. And our. Neighboring. Countries, across, the channel enjoy, today. The. Freedom, to, express, our views publicly. To assemble, and to demonstrate our, points, of view to argue, peacefully. Against. One another in this place are. Derived. From, the courage and the sacrifice of, the wartime generation. Whether, from the United Kingdom or the United, States of America. Or our other allies and we should remember, and, salute. That courage, and that sacrifice are not defeated by. The sort of disgraceful behavior to which my own will friend refer. You. Mr., speaker, and it's a pleasure to be stepping in on behalf of my colleagues, today and indeed to be opposite the right honourable, gentleman and might I echo his, comments, made regarding, the marking of the 75th, anniversary of the d-day landing, which are being commemorated today. In Portsmouth, we must never forget the. Extraordinary. Sacrifices. Of all those who landed that day in Normandy, and the achievements. Of our servicemen. And women who, came together to fight fascism, and protect, our freedom, I'd, also like to wish an eID alpha T to all of our Muslim friends right across the, United, Kingdom, and I also want, to express solidarity to, all women fighting, pension. Injustice in court, and outside Parliament, today. I'd also like. To congratulate, both. English, teams who competed in the Champions, League final on Saturday and, as, among United fan it pains me to congratulate, Liverpool. On their victory. Although. Fairplay, fans, did rename Margaret Thatcher square in Madrid Jeremy Corbyn, square and. I reckon that deserves brownie points even from a man United, fan mr.. Speaker yesterday, the, Prime Minister, had to repeat, two, presidents, from a journalists, question, about whether the NHS, is on the table as part of a US trade deal given. The Prime Minister was silent. On the, matter perhaps the right honourable gentleman could clarify the, government's, position will, the Tory party, give, US companies, access to, the NHS, yes or no. Well. Can, I can. I first of all welcome. The the. Honourable lady to, these, new responsibilities. And, to. Agree. With the comments. She made both, about d-day and about the success, of English. Football teams, in recent, to. European, Championships, and also. To. Wish. Well to both the English and Scot Scottish, women's, 11, for their forthcoming, matches. I. III. Welcome. The Honorable lady I I feel. Slightly sorry, for the rifle. The lady of the member for evenings. Him south of used, to to, jousting, with who who.
Seems To have been dispatched to internal. Exile, somewhere. Else. Mark. The only honorable. Ladies not to need to watch, out because I think there's a lesson there that, anybody. Who at the despatch-box outshines. The dear leader is, speak. Risks. Being airbrushed. Out of the politburo, history, at the earliest opportunity. My. Rifle more friend the. Prime Minister, has. Been very clear and she, heats she spoke for. Everyone, in the government and on this side of the house when it comes to trade negotiations. The, NHS. Is not, and will not be up the saddle. Today. Mr., speaker well the president, certainly seemed. To think the NHS, was on the table yesterday, so, does the trade secretary. But, who knows who, speaks for the government at the moment and the Prime Minister did nothing, to allay concerns yesterday. So, I hope she, was more forceful. In raising, climate, change with, a president, who initiated, the u.s. withdrawal, from the Paris climate agreement opened. Up record, amounts. Of land for oil and gas drilling and called, climate, change a hoax can. The right honourable gentleman confirm, if yesterday the, Prime Minister made any attempt, to convince him that climate, change is in fact real. Yes. Mr. speaker the variety. When the Prime Minister did. Raise, climate, change with the, president, yesterday and, she made clear at their joint press conference yesterday afternoon, that that is what she had done we. Are very proud of this, country's, commitment, to, the, international. Agreements. To reduce global, carbon, emissions, and we, have a better, track, record in reducing, those emissions than any other g7, Member, State long, Bailey, speaker. The statistics, that they right honorable gentleman referred to relates to emissions cut since 2010. When the UK benefited. From, policies, put in by the last Labour government, policies, which, have since been dismantled, but. How much authority does, this government actually, have on this issue three. Current, cabinet ministers, have denied, the, scientific, consensus, on climate change and several. Of those standing, in the Tory leadership, contest, have close links with organisations, and individuals promoting. Climate, denial mr.. Speaker it does not bode well figures. Released in April show, that the UK, is set to miss its own carbon budgets, by an ever-widening, margin. With, the right honourable gentleman light to explain why the government, is off track to meeting its own targets. Mr.. Speaker where we, went off track towards, of meeting those targets at all since 2010. Since. 2010, the United Kingdom has, decarbonized. Our economy. Faster. Than any other. We. Generate, now a. Record. Amount of electricity. From, renewable. Energy sources and. We have just gone through the longest, period in our history without. Relying. On electricity. Generated. From coal, that's. What. Appears to be the Labour Party's, declared, policy, which, is to reopen the, coal mines but. Not actually, to burn the coal that they mine. Mr.. Speaker the Labour Party, does not condone, the reopening, of any coal mine to be used for energy. Emissions. Reduction. That, were implemented, using. Labour, Party, policy, labor policies. That have since been dismantled and that only is the government failing, to me its targets, but last year actually saw the smallest, drop, in carbon, emissions in the last six years just. Two, percents. At, that rate it would take until the end of, the century to reach net zero emissions, and mr., speaker just yesterday, the, Financial, Times reported. That the government is accused, of trying to fiddle its, emissions, figure ignoring. Its official, advises so let me ask the right honourable gentleman a simple policy question, the Labour Party, has committed to banning fracking will, the government ban fracking and allow new onshore, wind in England yes or no. What. The government is committed to is to, reducing. Emissions. In line with both our domestic and global. Targets. And we, have not, just met but we have, outperformed. Our first, and second, carbon budgets, and we, are on track towards, meeting the, third there is going to be a need, for some time into, the future to, use gas, as a transitional. Fuel, but, that is much less. Polluting. Than other forms of, hydrocarbon. Based energy and it therefore is a good, source, during. The transition, period while, we make, ready to, move to a completely, decarbonized. Economy. Rebecca, long Bailey this, is absolutely. Staggering, the government promotes fracking. Backed, by only 12%, of the public effectively. Blocks onshore.
Wind Backed by 79 percent of the public new, solar is down 94. Percent home, installation is down 98, percent mr., speaker Parliament, declared a climate, emergency. Yet, there is no evidence, this, government, takes this seriously, we. Need a green, industrial, revolution. To tackle climate change, and alone, swansea. Tidal, lagoon would, have required a hundred, thousand, tons of steel mainly. From port talbot for, the government refused to back it can. The right honourable gentleman tell us what the government has actually done, since signing the steel charter, to support our steel industry. Mr.. Mr., speaker if one looks at what is actually, happening, in the, real world, rather than the ideological, trap. Switched the Honourable lady. You. Will see mr. speaker, that there are about. 400,000. Jobs already, in low-carbon, businesses, and their supply, chains, throughout, the United Kingdom and scope. For much more low-carbon. Growth to, support, up to 2 million jobs in the future, we, now have received advice from the independent. Climate change committee about, how, to, time and to legislate, for our transition, to a completely, decarbonized. Economy, and, we will brief bringing forward our decisions, later. This year as to, how and when we will be taking that action. Well. The independent, climate change committee has repeatedly. Criticized the government's approach to decarbonizing. Our economy but I know in the right honourable gentleman's, response there was not a single word on what support the government will provide the steel industry and people from red car to scum thought know that his empty rhetoric will not solve their catastrophe. Mr.. Speaker climate, change is an existential, threat. To safeguard. Our future we. Will need to mobilize, all of our resources, just like we did when we rebuilt, Britain after the Second World War if we, took the challenge seriously, we. Could create hundreds. Of thousands. Of jobs in low-carbon, industries, reverse. Decades, of decline in, our day industrialized. Areas, and lead, the world in renewable. Technologies. But, the government, is letting, us down. They, have recklessly. Run the clock down on brexit. But, I say to the right honourable, member isn't. It the truth that, their failure is now running down the clock on our planet. Mr.. Mr.. Speaker sir the older lady asked, about government. Help for the steel industry the. Answer to her question is, that we have provided taxpayer-funded. Subsidies, to. Cut energy costs, in the steel industry we. Have supported. A globally. And introduced. Here, trade, defense, measures, to shut out unfair, competition and, dumping, from, steel and when I was in Sheffield, a few, days ago I talked, to specialist, steel makers, in South butcher, who, welcome this government's, commitment, there to the advanced manufacturing center. To, the work that we are doing on technical, and vocational training, and who, were optimistic. About the future of steelmaking and manufacturing. In this country under. The policies, that my right honourable friend Secretary, of State for business has, been taking, through now, the truth is that III, when, I looked at the, Honourable, lady's video, about, the, Labour, Party's, new, commitment. To a a green, innovator, me green industrial revolution, it concluded. With a focus, on the. Word the. Words about, reen, a tional ization bring. Back into, public ownership as, if that were, the way forward. Now. We know from the CBI mr. speaker that, the cost of that would be a hundred and seventy-six billion, pounds, taken, from, the pockets, of taxpayers.
Well The United Kingdom, that, money could be used to. Build 3 million, new, homes, those. Labor policies, would, put at risk the, finances. Of decent. Working families. Marcus, fish Thank, You mr. speaker, some somerset, has been helping, illustrate. The huge, national challenge. We, face in, social, care through, a powerful panorama. Program, the final part of which as tonight. Will, my right honourable friend join, me in paying tribute to all in caring roles and, commit to addressing, their, funding, needs fully. Mr.. Mr. Speaker I first of all thank my humble friend for highlighting. This important. Issue we're committed to ensuring, that people of all ages have access to the care and support they, need that's. Why we've given local authorities access to nearly 4 billion pounds more, adult social, care this year but, we recognize that we also need to make sure that best practice, is observed across all local authorities and NHS. Trusts, where the evidence is that delayed discharges, are higher in some areas, than in others we will be publishing the green paper at, the, earliest, opportunity to. Set out the to, set out the. Hard. Strategic. Choices that. Are going to face, the, government whoever leads. The, government in the months to come and to. Describe. Proposals, to ensure that the social care system is sustainable, over the longer term. Mr.. Speaker I wish to associate. Myself and, my SNP, colleagues, with the comments of others our thoughts, are with the veterans, gathered in Portsmouth, today to Kemah me to commemorate the anniversary of, d-day here, today, is also World, Environment Day an important. Reminder that climate, change remains, the biggest challenge facing the world and, also I'd like to wish a very very, happy Eid Mubarak to all of those celebrating, across the UK. Yesterday. Donald, Trump said, that the NHS, was, on the table in, the trade talks with the UK today. He. Says he's, not so sure this. Is someone, who doesn't even believe in climate change a president.
Who Simply, cannot, be trusted. Why. Then, is the UK, government, saw, obsessed. With. Pursuing a trade deal that puts Scotland's, NHS, at risk. Mr.. Mr., speaker the government. Is not putting the NHS, at risk in Scotland, or anywhere. Else and, the Prime Minister has made that very. Clear indeed, what, I fear, is, putting. At risk standards, in the NHS, at Scotland it's in Scotland, is the SNPs, obsession. With constitutional, matters in a referendum. The, better delivery of public services. Mr.. Speaker we, have the, best-performing NHS's. With. The highest number of GPS per, head of population. If. This, week has, proven, anything it. Is proven, that there is no guarantee our. NHS, is safe in, 2014. Westminster. Promised. Scotland's. NHS, would. Be in public lavatory. For, as long as the people of Scotland wanted, it but, now this, Tory government is, actively. Working to. Deny. The, Scottish, Parliament the, powers, to, safeguard. Our NHS. Our. Public, services, the. Truth is under. This government, restored. Hland won't have a veto we. May not even have a see, the. Scottish, government will never allow, our precious. NHS, to. Be signed away in a Tory Trump, trade, deal. It's. The minister its fellow antiques, I don't, make that same pledge, here, today. They, will never ever, be, forgiven. Mr.. Speaker the, the risk of repeating myself, the. Under, this government, and under, stewardship, of anybody on this side of the house the NHS, is not gonna be up for grabs in a trade, negotiation, with the United States or with anybody else at, all and, I would say to the Honourable lady that when she talks, about the need for a voice for, Scotland, she. Ought to have more confidence in the. Ability, of herself. And her colleagues. To represent, the interests, of Scotland. Here in, the debates and in the committee's, on which they sit at, the moment they're leaving it my 13, colleagues, on this side would be the truth. Mr.. Speaker thank you very much um I know from, my own personal experience. What it takes to win a seat, from, the Labor Party, and hold, it will. My right honourable friend agree, with me but every community in this country needs, a strong voice in this place and, the people of Peterborough, tomorrow have the opportunity, to elect Paul Bristow, to, give them that voice to. Replace the failed Labour MP who, ended up in jail. Mr, Speaker I, very. Much endorse. What my honourable, friend my, rifle, friend says and I, believe that in, Paul Bristow Peterborough, would have a formidable, champion. For, the interests, of the residents, of every part of that borough or, a pig. Is. Just a stand-in, while the vultures circle, but I want to ask what he thinks of the legacy, left by the Prime Minister a deeply, divided country where, 14, million, people live in poverty where. 130,000. Preventable, deaths have, been caused by austerity. Since, 2012, a country where, 17,000. People can, die while, they are waiting for disability, benefits where homelessness. Is soren, destitution, is rife and in the UN Rapporteur. By harsh and uncaring, ethos I don't wanna personalizes. Because every one of those, ventures is responsible. But what kind of legacy is, that. Mr.. Speaker the. Legacy. Of my rifle friend will be a country, in which income. Inequality. Is down. In. Which wages, have been rising faster, than inflation for, more than a year where. We have the lowest unemployment since. The 1970s. And record, numbers of people, in jobs. It's about time that the Honorable honorable lady stop talking, our country, down on this side we want to raise.
Right. On a rock friend, think it's acceptable, the. People, with access, to large sums, of money are. Able to bring about private, prosecutions in. A way that. Undermines, freedom. Of speech in this country. Mr. Speaker I let, me say two things about my, my. Honorable friends question. First, of all I believe, that, freedom of speech is one. Of our, most precious. Inheritances. From previous, generations. And we, should do everything we can in this place and outside to uphold that principle, when it comes to any specific. Case it would clearly be wrong of me to pass comment, on something, that is before the courts judge. Stevens. And. My constituency, suffered, yet more serious, violent, crimes some in the public domain and some which isn't including. The murder of 18 year-old for, hard Mohamad north and a, knife attack on, the congregationally. Leaving, dowel of dark alizarin musk following, Ramadan, prayers, since. 2010. Under Liberal Democrat and Conservative government South Wales police funding has been cut by, nearly 61. Million pounds, police, officers, in Cardiff are running on empty, what. Will it take for, this shambles, of a government to accept responsibility for. Public Safety and give South Wales Police the funding. Well. This mr., speaker South, Wales Police is actually. Receiving up, to 290 million pounds, in funding, in the current financial year which is an increase of 19, million on the, last financial year but. The to, get to grips with. Serious. Crime, and no, one would have anything but but sympathy, for the victims whom, she referred to and their families, we, also need, to look at what it is that, drives young. Men in particular towards. Gang. Membership, and participation, in. Violent crime and that, is an, matches the work but, my right on will friend the Home Secretary, in partnership. With other ministers, is now leading and which I hope will bring benefits to her constituency. And to many others. The. Motor industry, is vital, to the economy of rugby and the West Midlands and so was the Maya Trimble friend concerned to, see the UK, manufacturing. Statistics, from the SM MT showed, that in April production. Fell by 44%, because. A factory, shutdowns, for the unexpected certainty. Of a 29th, of March Briggs it does, he agree that this should act as a wake-up, call to ensure that the same thing doesn't happen again on the 31st, of October by. Leaving, the EU with a deal which will take away the uncertainty. That is so damaging, to our manufacturers. I. I. Think my auto friend makes a very important, point and the car industry, is one. Of the most important, but by no means the only sector. In this country that, relies heavily, upon, just-in-time. Cross-border. Supply, chains with, enterprises. In other member states of the European Union that. Is why the government remains focused on ensuring that our departure from the EU is smooth, and orderly, and with. A deal which allows, for those just-in-time, supply, chains to be protected, Penacook. Mr.. Speaker, of the many collective, challenges, we face none is more essential more. Urgent, than climate, breakdown the, legislation, required to commit the UK to phasing out carbon emissions entirely by mid-century is simple, it's, almost certainly already been drafted and this house could pass it in a matter of days, this, issue is simply too pressing to wait for later this year or a future, administration, we have the parliamentary time what, possible, reason. Can the Minister give for, why the government cannot commit to enshrine NetZero, emissions into law now. Well mr. speaking out there first of all congratulate, the Honorable, gentle in his partner on, having looked at its Twitter feed on the the. Imminent. Birth of their their second child later this year and wish, wish both, here is partly well, in. In terms of his question it was discovered, which. Actually, went to the independent. Committee on climate change and asked, for advice from them about how and over what timeframe to make that move to complete decarbonisation. We, have only very recently received. That advice that will clearly need to be considered. Within government, and we want to bring forward our decision, at the earliest possible opportunity because. I share his view, of the importance, of getting amitis this green, mr.. Speaker difficult, times often. Call for new leadership and a new vision therefore. Will my right on revenge join me in supporting. Councillor. David greenhouses, visit, vision, for a regeneration, of Bolton his, bids for the future High Street Fund and the recovery, of Bolton after 40 years of, labor miss rule. I. Like. To thank my honourable, friend for.
Highlighting. This. Initiative. In in, Bolton, as, he knows their. High streets are changing, and we are committed to the government to helping communities like Bolton, to adapt. To that change we've, already proved, a set in hand the 675. Million future, high streets fund we welcome Bolton councils, applications. It being they're being assessed alongside other, applications. We, will make an announcement about those places, that are successful, later this summer I know my honorable friends will, continue, to be a very, Doughty champion. For his city. My. Local, NHS, is cutting GP, hours. While they and NHS, England are forced to subsidize a private. Company Babylon, GP. And land which is sucked up over, 50,000. Stations, for its controversial, app-based system. Undermining. GPS, across London, and beyond given. The health secretary is, babylons, biggest, cheerleader, why, should my constituents. This, government, to keep the NHS, public, any more, than they would trust Donald Trump. Mr.. Mr.. Speaker an NHS, England is I understand, increasing, the baseline funding of Hammersmith, and Fulham. CCG. To ensure it is not financially. Disadvantaged, by hosting, GP. At hand, but, via the NHS, to improve. Its service to patients is going, to need to embrace innovation and, digital technologies. Like those used by GP, at hand do, offer convenience. For patients, and often allow clinicians to, work more. Efficiently. And that's why our new GP, contract, gives everyone, the, right to digital. First primary, care including, web and video consultations. From 2021. If that, is what they want to receive. 75. Years ago tonight, the first steps in the liberation of Europe were taken by the Oxfordshire. And Buckinghamshire. Light. Infantry when, they dropped by parachute to. Liberate Pegasus. Bridge as, the Dakotas over, Normandy, commemorates, this feat, this. And time will my right honorable friend join. With me to celebrate. And, commemorate all, the ordinary and yet extraordinary, men and women from every corner of our country who, turned the tide of the war in freedoms favor. I'm. Grateful, to my honorable, friend far for, highlighting, the particular example, of the Pegasus Bridge and the heroism shown, by the. Servicemen, from our two counties. But. I think he's also right, that we need to pay tribute today, to. The men and women who took part in the success of Operation, Overlord for whichever part of the United Kingdom or whichever, allied country they came. To. Many people, in our uniform public services, are taking their own lives but Mr Speaker we don't know the true extent of these tragedies as ministers, do not require this data to be collected more. Than Minister agree with me that the police our armed forces and the prison services, should follow the need on a fire service, and record the number of people in their service that take their own lives I. Mean. The your intent will make say a good, point I know he is due to meet with, minister, of justice ministers, fairly, soon to talk about whether, the. The. MOJ, could introduce similar. Practices, for, its services, and I, will draw, his question to detention, of the Minister for policing, to, see if a competing. Can be established with home office chief, Johnson. Mr, Speaker pets, would have designated an area of special, residential, character, in the London borough of Bromley but, it suffered from inconsistent.
Decision Making at the hands of the Planning Inspectorate, which I feel is unaccountable. Would, my right honourable friend use his good offices to, help me secure. The meeting I've long been requesting, which the planning inspector has for some reason consistently. Declined. Well, I'm very happy in the first instance, to ensure, that my honourable. Friend has a meeting with the relevant, minister in the Department, of Housing communities, and local government and hope that that would enable him to find a way forward would, be a groups discourtesy, if it were otherwise. Extraordinary. That the honourable gentleman should have to ask for a meeting but there we are he's gonna get his meeting Rachel maskel. Well. Yesterday the US President did say that the NHS, was on the table of any trade negotiation. And the, PM did not intervene, to stop him the, net Dems and Tories, have already voted through the Health and Social Care Act, which opened up the NHS, to, the US market. 10%, it's already privatized. And the brexit, party leader has no issue with, US private, health care insurance replacing. Our NHS. No. Party, can be trusted. With our NHS, except, the Labour Party. To. Save our NHS. Mr.. Mr.. Speaker one does get a bit sick of these scare stories, after a while. Mr.. Speaker. Mr.. Speaker. The. Honorable lady, might like, to pretend. That the. Majority, of, NHS. Contracting, out the private sector did not actually take place under conservative ministration. But under the Labour government. With. Andy Burnham urging. That to. Accelerated. Now, the truth is that, during, the 17th, year lifetime of the NHS, it has had more years under conservative, than. Under, labour stewardship. And if we look at what is happening today we, see the NHS, getting the biggest cash boost ever, in its history a long-term, plan for its future made possible, by conservative. Policies. And. I remain the house of my members interests I echo what the minister said about our teams going to the World Cup and their. Performances, later on this month but there is further representation. From this country with, three match officials, selected, John, Massey and Lisa she'd from England and my colleague from Scotland, Kylie Coburn all, selected, to represent their, country so will my Reitan was brain join me in congratulating them, for their dedication commitment, and ability as much of the officials, which has seen them called up to the World Cup and wish all our match officials, are successful, and productive. Tournament. Well. I I, didn't I did feel there was perhaps no. Beat the shop steward for the amalgamated. Union of. Association. Football officials was the speech you hear but, the. I, very. Happy to join my own girlfriend in congratulating, Sean DS and Kylie as having been selected, as assistant, referees. It is a first-class. Achievement. And I'd like to wish them as well as both teams, all success. Will the World Cup in Fletcher. Pupils. From st. Gregory's, primary, school in my constituency. Recently. Wrote to me regarding, the problem of plastic pollution in, our environment, they. Have rightly, pointed out the damage that plastic, waste. Causes to marine life and also human. Life as it makes its way up, the food chain as a result, they, are calling on the government to introduce a deposit, return scheme that, will reduce the, amount of plastic that ends, up in landfill, and in our oceans, on, this, World Environment Day. Does, the minister agree. With, the pupils, of st. Gregory's, primary, school. The. I think that, I can give. The, Honourable, lady an encouraging, message to, take back to the people beggary, school which is that under, the leadership of my, right on a friend the Secretary of State for the environment the. Government has. Launched. A resources. And waste strategy, which. Includes consulting. On plans to introduce consistent. Recycling, for all households. And consulting. On a deposit return, scheme, to. Drive up the recycling of cans and bottles, and plans, for producers, to pay the full cost of managing packaging. Waste through extended producer responsibility. It. Makes a good package, Thank. You mr. speaker, 30. Years ago this week some. 2000, Democrats, maybe more will never know the number were. Murdered, in Tiananmen. Square and. Even. Now in China there is a Great Firewall, which. Prevents, Wikipedia. Google. And others. Communicating. With the Chinese, people. Now. While China, has moved, on, does. My right honourable friend not think it the, height of hypocrisy. Those. Who, demonstrated. Against. The President, of the United States of America, yet. Chose not, to demonstrate.
Against. The president, of China when, he came here. I. Think. That my, honourable, friend makes, a telling. Point about, the. Inconsistency. In, standards, that we've seen from some leading, members, of this, house, it. Is indeed 30 30 years yesterday, since the. Tragic. Shocking. Events in which so many people lost their lives while protesting, peacefully in. And around 10 and men's square and the. Sad truth today is that people in China are still unable. To exercise, their, right to protest peacefully. A right. Given. To them by. International. Agreements, to, which the Chinese government. Has signed up and we continue. To urge the Chinese government, to respect citizens, freedom of association, assembly. Expression, and other, fundamental. Rights, and freedoms as is, supposed to be enshrined, in China's, Constitution as well as an international, law. Adam. Price is in celebrating. It with the Normandy a memorable, Morial today and we share the feeling for all those people who know. I guess. When President, Trump's visit was thought, up months ago the plan was, for. The UK to have he left the EU by then, take. Back control they said but. What we saw this, week was, a vision of things to come of, razzle-dazzle. Concealing. The reality, of sovereignty, reduced, to sycophants. 68%. Of, Welsh exports, mr. speaker go to the EU. Only. 14%. Of, our exports, go to the u.s. post, breakfast, the, British government will have to choose which. Deal to, strike which. Would he prioritize. Mr.. Speaker if the old lady had been studying the various. Publications from, the government she will have seen that our objective. Is to have a very close, deep. Future partnership, on trade and other matters, with, our neighbours in the European Union while, at the same time having, the freedom to pursue trade, deals with other parts, of the world including with. The United States, amongst. One and I just, do ask, young, lady to. Just pause, before. Condemning. The state visit, by, the elected. Head of state, and government of, our. Staunchest. Ally. At, a time, when we commemorate, the 70th anniversary, of, the d-day landings. And trying. To criticize that for political. Purposes.

Ally and we should honor and respect, him during that visit. Speaker. I know my Rhydon friend, we aware from his recent visit to call up the potential of development, the space sector in, Cornwall, and therefore, I'm sure he would join me in welcoming the announcement, yesterday of government, support of seven point eight million pounds with the development, of Europe's first horizontal. Spaceport. In Cornwall so will he join me in congratulating all, the space-boat chromel team for, their successful bid woody uses officers to ensure that the government does everything it can to make sure the regulations, are in place for, satellites, to be launched as soon as possible, and what is on his feet woody congratulate, the Cornish rugby team for, their excellent, win on Sunday against. Cheshire to, become county championship. Where. I delighted. To, to congratulate, the Cornish rugby, team as my other, friend invites me to do I was, also very pleased, indeed to see the decision being made to give that support, to the, Cornwall. Spaceport.

Hilly Earth station, earlier, this year and I think there is some really, exciting commercial, opportunities, available for call war and the United Kingdom. Mr.. Speaker in, July 2016. My constituent, mr. jock was diagnosed, with multiple myeloma, a, form. Of blood cancer he. Was treated with two lines of chemotherapy and, initially, responded. Well but had recurrent. Infections, which required antibiotics. He. Went into remission in 2018. And his pit was stopped in December, 2018. Mr.. Gough appealed the decision despite, the fact that he was receiving treatment his appeal was refused in February, he was told his cancer relapsed, it. Is incurable he's, now been told his mobility car, will be repossessed, this week. Removing. His PIP left, him we'll leave him short of money unable.

Someone, intervene, and stop this in just. The, I mean be honourable member will appreciate, that. I don't know any more about the detail of his constituents, case than what, he has just set, out before the house. My, rifle friend the secretary State for Work and Pensions is, in her place on the front bench we'll have heard what he said and I, should ask her to make sure that a minister from that department speaks, to your gentleman urgently, to get to the bottom of what has happened, mr..

Reverse the decline. Of course spending, to, increase the unit funding, rate and to allow for three-year funding plans does my right honourable friend agree that this should be essential.

Speaker my my honourable friend makes a very important, point about the. Vital. Role that further education. Provides. Both, in equipping young men and women with, skills. They need to give them good career opportunities, but also often is providing, a passport through, to higher education, at a later stage in, their careers the author review provides a blueprint, of how, we can make sure that, everybody can follow, the, path that is right for, them and he's right to say but, we need to study augurs conclusions, carefully in the run-up to the forthcoming spending, review McDonald.

The United States government, but they have so far refused, to do so and therefore, it's prohibiting. Them determining, whether, or not a crime was committed, so, given intelligence sharing is supposed to underpin, our relationship, with the US has. Anyone from the government raised, this with President Trump whilst he's been here and if, not while he pledged to do so on behalf of Scotland's law enforcement, agencies, before, he departs Yukie soil today.
