>>Gordon Henderson (Sittingbourne and Sheppey) (Con): If he will list his official engagements
for Wednesday 16 September.
>>The Prime Minister (Mr David Cameron): I had meetings with ministerial colleagues and
others. In addition to my duties in this House, I shall have further such meetings later today.
>>Gordon Henderson: Seventy-five years ago, Spitfires and Hurricanes were flying over
Sittingbourne and Sheppey in the battle of Britain, defending our country from Hitler’s
aggression. It is particularly appropriate that the Royal Air Force protected the Isle
of Sheppey, because it is the birthplace of British aviation, something of which we islanders
are immensely proud. Will the Prime Minister join me in paying tribute to those courageous
RAF airmen who helped to ensure the freedoms we enjoy today?
>>The Prime Minister: I certainly join my hon. Friend in doing that. There was a very
moving service in St Paul’s yesterday, where many of us were able to pay tribute to those
brave pilots, to the ground crews and to all those involved in what was not just an important
moment in British history, but a vital moment in world history as Britain stood alone as
the only thing that could stop Hitler and Nazism. It is a reminder of how proud we should
be of our armed forces then, today and always.
>>Jeremy Corbyn (Islington North) (Lab): I want to thank all those who took part in an
enormous democratic exercise in this country, which concluded with me being elected as leader
of the Labour party and Leader of the Opposition. We can be very proud of the numbers of people
who engaged and took part in all those debates.
I have taken part in many events around the country and had conversations with many people
about what they thought of this place, our Parliament, our democracy and our conduct
within this place. Many told me that they thought Prime Minister’s question time was
too theatrical, that Parliament was out of touch and too theatrical, and that they wanted
things done differently, but above all they wanted their voice to be heard in Parliament.
So I thought, in my first Prime Minister’s Question Time, I would do it in a slightly
different way. I am sure the Prime Minister will absolutely welcome this, as he welcomed
the idea in 2005, but something seems to have happened to his memory during that period.
So I sent out an email to thousands of people and asked them what questions they would like
to put to the Prime Minister and I received 40,000 replies.
There is not time to ask 40,000 questions today—our rules limit us to six—so I would
like to start with the first one, which is about housing. Two-and-a-half thousand people
emailed me about the housing crisis in this country. I ask one from a woman called Marie,
who says, “What does the government intend to do about the chronic lack of affordable
housing and the extortionate rents charged by some private sector landlords in this country?”
>>The Prime Minister: First of all, let me congratulate the right hon. Gentleman on his
resounding victory in the Labour leadership election. I welcome him to the Front Bench,
and to these exchanges. I am sure that there will be many strong disagreements between
us during our exchanges, but when we can work together in the national interest we should
do so, and I wish the right hon. Gentleman well in his job.
If we are able to change Prime Minister’s Question Time and make it a more genuine exercise
in asking questions and answering questions, no one will be more delighted than me. Last
week, when we discussed a substantial issue with substantial questions and proper answers,
I felt that that was good for our House and good for our democracy, and so I welcomed
it.
Let me now answer, very directly, Marie’s question. We do need to see more affordable
housing in our country. We delivered 260,000 affordable housing units during the last Parliament,
and we built more council houses in our country than had been managed in the previous 13 years,
but I recognise that much more needs to be done. That means carrying on with our reform
of the planning system, and it means encouraging the building industry to come up with innovative
schemes like the starter homes scheme, but, above all, it means continuing to support
the aspirations of people to be able to afford their own homes, which is where schemes such
as Help to Buy come in. But I say this to the right hon. Gentleman: we will not get
Britain building unless we keep our economy going.
>>Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the Prime Minister for that answer, and I thank him for his commitment
that we are going to try and do Prime Minister’s Question Time in a more adult way than we
have done it in the past.
The effects of Government policy on housing are obviously enormous, and the decision to
cut, for example, 1% of the rent levels in councils and in housing associations without
thinking about the funding issues that those authorities face is a serious one. I have
a question from Steven, who works for a housing association. He says that the cut in rents
will mean that the company that he works for will lose 150 jobs by next March because of
the loss of funding for that housing association to carry on with its repairs. Down the line,
that will mean worse conditions, worse maintenance, fewer people working there, and a greater
problem for people living in those properties. Does the Prime Minister not think it is time
to reconsider the question of the funding of the administration of housing, as well
as, of course, the massive gap of 100,000 units a year between what is needed and what
is being built?
>>The Prime Minister: What I would say to Steven, and to all those who are working in
housing associations and doing a good job, is that for years in our country there was
something of a merry-go-round. Rents went up, housing benefit went up, and so taxes
had to go up to pay for that. I think it was right in the Budget to cut the rents that
social tenants pay, not least because people who are working and not on housing benefit
will see a further increase in their take-home pay, and will be able to afford more things
in life.
I think it is vital, though, that we reform housing associations and make sure that they
are more efficient. They are a part of the public sector that has not been through efficiencies
and has not improved its performance, and I think it is about time that it did.
>>Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the Prime Minister for that, but it leads me neatly on to what
happened yesterday, when the House sadly voted for proposals that will cost families who
are affected by the change in tax credits £1,300 per year. That is absolutely shameful.
I received more than 1,000 questions about tax credits. Paul, for example, asks this
very heartfelt question: “Why is the government taking tax credits away from families? We
need this money to survive and so our children don’t suffer. Paying rent and council tax
on a low income doesn’t leave you much. Tax credits play a vital role and more is
needed to stop us having to become reliant on food banks to survive.”
>>The Prime Minister: What we need is a country where work genuinely pays, and that is why
what our proposals do is reform welfare, but at the same time bring in a national living
wage which will mean that anyone on the lowest rate of pay will get a £20-a-week pay rise
next year. That is why the figures show that a family—[Interruption.] I thought that
this was the new Question Time. I am not sure that the message has fully hit home.
I do not want to blind the House with statistics, but I will give just two. First, after all
our changes, a family where one of whose members is on the minimum wage will be £2,400 better
off. Secondly—and I think this is really important—between 1998 and 2009, in-work
poverty went up by 20%, at the same time as in-work benefits rose from £6 billion to
£28 billion. The old way of doing things is not working, and we should not go back
to it. What we must do is tackle the causes of poverty: get people back to work, improve
our schools, improve childcare. Those are the ways in which we can create an economy
in which work pays and everyone is better off.
>>Jeremy Corbyn: The Institute for Fiscal Studies says there are 8 million people in
paid work eligible for benefits or tax credits. They are on average being compensated for
just 26% of their losses by the so-called national living wage that the Government have
introduced. So I ask a question from Claire, who says this: “How is changing the thresholds
of entitlement for tax credits going to help hard-working people or families? I work part-time;
my husband works full-time earning £25,000”—
they have five children—“This decrease in tax credits will see our income plummet.”
They ask a simple question: how is this fair?
>>The Prime Minister: The country has to live within its means and we were left an unaffordable
welfare system and a system where work did not pay. We see today the latest set of employment
statistics where the rate of employment in our country has yet again reached a record
high—more people in work, more people in full-time work—and we are also seeing unemployment
fall in every region of the country except the south-east, and the sharpest falls are
in the north-west, the north-east and the west midlands. What we are doing is moving
from an economy with low wages, high tax and high welfare to an economy where we have higher
wages, lower taxes and less welfare. That is the right answer: an economy where work
pays, an economy where people can get on. Let us not go back to the days of unlimited
welfare. Labour’s position again today is to abolish the welfare cap; I say that a family
that chooses not to work should not be better off than one that chooses to work.
>>Jeremy Corbyn: Many people do not have that choice; many people live in a very difficult
situation and rely on the welfare state to survive. Surely all of us have a responsibility
to make sure that people can live properly and decently in modern Britain; that is surely
a decent, civil thing to do.
I received over 1,000 questions on the situation facing our mental health services and people
who suffer from mental health conditions. This is a very serious situation across the
whole country and I want to put to the Prime Minister a question that was put to me very
simply from Gail: “Do you think it is acceptable that the mental health services in this country
are on their knees at the present time?”
>>The Prime Minister: As I mentioned before the first question, there will be areas where
we can work together, and I believe this is one of them; we do need to do more to increase
mental health services in our country. We have made some important steps forward in
recent years. Mental health and physical health now have parity in the NHS constitution. We
have introduced for the first time waiting time targets for mental health services so
they are not seen as a Cinderella service, and of course we have made the commitment—a
commitment I hope the right hon. Gentleman will back, undoing previous Labour policy—to
back the Stevens plan for an extra £8 billion into the NHS in this Parliament, which can
help to fund better mental health services, among other things. There are problems in
some mental health services and it is right that we make that commitment.
But I make this one point to the hon. Gentleman: we will not have a strong NHS unless we have
a strong economy, and if the Labour party is going to go down the route of unlimited
spending, unlimited borrowing and unlimited tax rates, printing money, they will wreck
the economic security of our country and the family security of every family in our country.
We will not be able to afford a strong NHS without a strong economy.
>>Jeremy Corbyn: May I take the Prime Minister back to the situation of mental health in
this country, which is very serious? I agree with him absolutely on parity of service,
and I hope the spending commitments are brought forward, rather than delayed to the end of
this Parliament, because the crisis is very serious. We know this from our constituents,
we know this from people we meet, we know this from the devastation that many face—and
indeed some have taken their own lives because of the devastation they face.
I ask a question from Angela, who is a mental health professional, so she knows exactly
what she is talking about. She says this: “Beds are unobtainable with the result that
people suffering serious mental health crises are either left without adequate care or alternatively
admitted to facilities many miles away from their homes, relatives and family support
systems. The situation is simply unacceptable.” What does the Prime Minister say to Angela
and people like her who work so hard in the mental health services, or people going through
a mental health crisis who may well be watching us today on Prime Minister’s Question Time
and want to know that we take their conditions seriously, and take seriously their need for
emergency beds and to be near their homes and support system, and that we as a society
take seriously their plight and are going to help them and care for them? What does
the Prime Minister say to Angela?
>>The Prime Minister: What I would say to Angela, and all those working in mental health—and
indeed all those suffering from mental health conditions—is that we need to do more as
a country to help tackle mental health. That is obviously about money into the health service,
which we will deliver, but it is also about changing the way the health service helps
those with mental health conditions. The right hon. Gentleman rightly talks about mental
health beds, and they are important, but frankly so is the service that people get when they
visit their GP. Many people going into their GP surgeries have mental health conditions,
but they are not treated for those conditions and do not get access to, for instance, the
cognitive behavioural therapies that are increasingly being made available. So my argument is, yes,
put in the resources, change the way the NHS works and change public attitudes to mental
health—that is vital—but I say again that we will not be able to do any of those things
without the strong economy that we have built over these last five years.
>>Mr Andrew Turner (Isle of Wight) (Con): The Isle of Wight zoo is having difficulty
importing a tiger. She was cruelly treated in a circus and has now been kept in isolation
for nearly two years, despite Belgium being wholly free from rabies. Will my right hon.
Friend assist in breaking through this bureaucratic logjam?
>>The Prime Minister: I will certainly do anything I can to help my—[Interruption.]
>>Mr Speaker: Order. I want to hear about the tiger.
>>The Prime Minister: I want to hear about the tiger, and we will help those at the Department
for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs’ Animal and Plant Health Agency, because they
are the ones who are working on this. I had a constituency case exactly like this, when
the Cotswold Wildlife Park wanted to bring in a rhino. I intervened, and I am delighted
to say that the Cotswold Wildlife Park named the rhino Nancy, in honour of my daughter.
Nancy has been breeding ever since she arrived in Burford, and I hope that the tiger will
be just as effective.
>>Angus Robertson (Moray) (SNP): May I begin by congratulating the new leader of the Labour
party? We in the Scottish National party look forward to working with him to oppose Tory
austerity, and we hope that Labour MPs will join him and us in opposing Trident when the
time comes. [Hon. Members: “Oh!”] One year ago to the day, the Prime Minister made
a vow to the people of Scotland. Promises were made to deliver home rule and an arrangement
as near to federalism as possible. However, the former Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, now
says that the UK Government are
“falling short on the delivery of the recommendations of the Smith Commission on Scottish devolution”.
When will the Prime Minister deliver on the promises that he made to the people of Scotland?
>>The Prime Minister: We have delivered on all the promises that we made—[Interruption.]
We said that we would introduce a Scotland Bill, and we introduced a Scotland Bill. We
said that there would be unprecedented devolution on taxes, and there has been unprecedented
devolution on taxes. We said that we would provide those welfare powers, and we have
given those welfare powers. The question now for the SNP is this: when are you going to
stop talking about processes and start telling us what taxes you are going to put up? What
welfare changes are you going to make? Or, when it comes to talking about the issues,
are you frit?
>>Angus Robertson: That is very interesting. Whatever happened to the new style of PMQs?
One of the architects of the vow says that it is not being fully delivered, as does the
Scottish Trades Union Congress. The Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations, Carers
Scotland and Enable Scotland all say that not enough welfare powers are being devolved.
Only 9% of people in Scotland believe that the vow has been delivered, and not one amendment
to the Scotland Bill has been accepted by the Government. Tory bluster and condescension
will not go down well in Scotland. So, for the second time, may I ask the Prime Minister
to tell us, in his new style of answering at Prime Minister’s questions, when he will
deliver on the promises that were made to the people of Scotland?
>>The Prime Minister: Of course this is going to take a bit of getting used to, but let
me try to answer the right hon. Gentleman very calmly. What I notice from his question
is that he has not given me one single example of where the vow was not delivered. If he
can point to a tax we promised to devolve but have not devolved, I would accept it.
If he can point to a welfare change we promised to devolve but did not devolve, I would accept
it. He has not done those things. All he is doing is continuing an argument about process,
because he does not want to talk about the substance. You give me a list—sorry, he
should give me a list—of the things that were promised and were not delivered, and
then we can have a very reasonable conversation. Until then, it is all bluster from the SNP.
>>Tom Pursglove (Corby) (Con): The Prime Minister has a lot to be pleased with Corby for—that
is Corby, not Corbyn. Not only did Corby help him back into No. 10, but it gave to him and
the world the DVD case, which was designed and first produced in the town. This week,
we continue that entrepreneurial spirit, with our bid for a new enterprise zone being submitted.
Does he agree that areas that are taking significant housing growth should also benefit from new
jobs and new infrastructure?
>>The Prime Minister: My hon. Friend is absolutely right; there is a lot that is very positive
happening in Corby—we got the claimant count down by 29% over the last year and long-term
youth unemployment is down. The point he makes about areas that take extra housing getting
the opportunity for more infrastructure is right. So, yes, ever since his election I
have been feeling a sense of Corbymania.
>>Mr Ronnie Campbell (Blyth Valley) (Lab): Public sector workers like nurses, health
workers, local government workers, teachers and public service workers have not had a
pay rise for five years, and they are being told by the Chancellor that they are going
to get 1% for the next five years. What is it with these hard-working, good tax-paying
people that means this Tory Government will not give them a decent rise?
>>The Prime Minister: First, what we have been most keen on is trying to protect the
services and the jobs, and it has a direct impact if you simply have larger pay rises.
But of course today inflation is 0% and there are pay increases in the public sector, and
what the hon. Gentleman completely fails to mention are the progression payments that,
for instance, in the health service, have delivered year-on-year pay increases for many
hard-working people in our NHS whom I want to see rewarded. But there is something else
we can do, which is to cut their taxes. By keeping public spending under control and
by growing our economy, we are able to say to everyone in our public sector, “You can
earn £11,000 before you start paying any income tax at all.” That has been, in effect,
a pay rise for 29 million working people.
>>Kevin Hollinrake (Thirsk and Malton) (Con): Following the Prime Minister’s visit to
Yorkshire last week, peace, love and harmony has broken out right across the county. Members
on both sides of the House have expressed their support for a “Greater Yorkshire”
bid, encompassing north, east and west Yorkshire and Hull. Will he agree to meet me and other
Members to discuss the merits of the bid, and the central role we believe it can play
in the northern powerhouse and our economic security?
>>The Prime Minister: I will obviously take great care with my answer. I think it is excellent
that we have got these devolution proposals, and it is very good that a number of different
ideas have come forward from Yorkshire. The most important thing now is for people to
try to come together and get behind a plan for Yorkshire. But be in no doubt: this devolution
is coming, in terms of real powers and real ability to drive that economy as part of our
northern powerhouse.
>>Kate Hollern (Blackburn) (Lab): My constituent Enola Halleron-Clarke, who is 11 years old,
suffers from Morquio syndrome. This distressing disease stunts her growth and leads to abnormal
development of the bones, and at the moment there is no cure. Enola would like to be able
to use the drug Vimizim to help alleviate her condition, but the National Institute
for Health and Care Excellence has yet to decide whether the drug should be available
on the NHS. Will the Prime Minister do all he can to encourage NICE to come to a speedy
decision for Enola and people like her?
>>The Prime Minister: The hon. Lady is absolutely right to raise the case about this illness
and this drug; other Members have raised it as well. She is right to say that NICE is
still looking at the matter. I will continue to do all I can to ensure that it reaches
a speedy decision. We also need to have a dialogue with the drug companies, because
of the vast prices that are being charged for some of these drugs. There are resource
implications, and we need to bring down those costs to make the drugs more available, more
quickly.
>>Kelly Tolhurst (Rochester and Strood) (Con): After a Care Quality Commission inspection
at Medway hospital, a two-day diversion of ambulances has been put in place, starting
this morning. Will the Prime Minister assure me that all will be done to turn things around
at our hospital so that my constituents can have a fully functioning A&E swiftly and urgently?
>>The Prime Minister: I well remember discussing that with my hon. Friend. Obviously, her hospital
has faced difficulties, and, instead of trying to push that under the carpet, we have decided
in these circumstances to send in a team to turn things around and improve the hospital’s
performance, but more work needs to be done. The pledge I can make is that we will continue
investing in that hospital and working on it to ensure that it can provide the service
that her constituents deserve.
>>Daniel Zeichner (Cambridge) (Lab): At the general election, the Prime Minister promised
an extra £8 billion a year for the national health service. This week, the chief executive
of one of our leading hospitals in the country, Addenbrooke’s hospital, which serves my
constituents in Cambridge, resigned, not least because of the financial crisis that is engulfing
our health service, as indicated by the King’s Fund yesterday. How much more damage has to
be done to the NHS before the Prime Minister coughs up?
>>The Prime Minister: With the danger of introducing too much politics into this answer, I have
to say that at the general election our party stood on the proposal of £8 billion more
for the NHS—effectively, it was £10 billion more for the NHS—and we have set out where
every penny piece of that is coming from. At that election, the Labour party did not
support an extra £8 billion for the NHS; it did not back the Stephens plan. The truth
is if we want proper reform for a seven-day NHS and the resources that go with a successful
NHS, it is the Conservative party that will deliver.
>>Julian Knight (Solihull) (Con): In a world in which we have a nuclear North Korea, a
rampant and aggressive Russia and the pure evil of the so-called Islamic State, will
the Prime Minister agree that, to protect our security and way of life, we simply must
have an independent nuclear deterrent?
>>The Prime Minister: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. In terms of defence, this is the most
important duty for a Government and for a Prime Minister. The cornerstone of our defence
will remain the 2% spending to which we are committed with the increased defence budget
in this Parliament, the membership of NATO and Britain’s own independent nuclear deterrent
as the ultimate insurance policy in what is a dangerous world. The fact that the Labour
party is turning away from those things is deeply regrettable. National security is the
most important thing a Government can deliver and we will never fall short.
>>Mr Nigel Dodds (Belfast North) (DUP): The plaques at the entrance door to this Chamber
in memory of Airey Neave, Robert Bradford, Ian Gow and Sir Anthony Berry—serving Members
of this House who were murdered by terrorists as they stood up for democracy and the British
way of life—are a reminder of the savagery and brutality of terrorism, as are the gravestones
and the headstones in Northern Ireland and right across this land. The Opposition Leader
has appointed a shadow Chancellor who believes that terrorists should be honoured for their
bravery. Will the Prime Minister join all of us, from all parts of this House, in denouncing
that sentiment and standing with us on behalf of the innocent victims and for the bravery
of our armed forces who stood against the terrorists?
>>Hon. Members: Hear, hear!
>>The Prime Minister: From the reaction he has just heard, the right hon. Gentleman will
know that he has spoken for many in this House and, I think, the vast majority of people
in our country. Airey Neave is the first Member of Parliament I can remember, because he was
my Member of Parliament. Ian Gow was one of the first politicians I ever wrote a speech
for, and there never was a kinder or gentler public servant in this House. He was cruelly
murdered and his family had that life taken away. My view is simple: the terrorism we
faced was wrong. It was unjustifiable. The death and the killing was wrong. It was never
justified, and people who seek to justify it should be ashamed of themselves.
>>Michael Tomlinson (Mid Dorset and North Poole) (Con): Schools in Poole are in the
bottom five and schools in Dorset are in the bottom 11 when it comes to local education
authorities and funding per pupil. I welcome this Government’s commitment to a fairer
funding formula. Does the Prime Minister recognise the importance of fairer funding for our schools
in Poole and Dorset, and the need for that to be implemented as quickly as possible to
ensure a world-class education for our children, including respect for our traditions, and
perhaps even learning the importance of our national anthem?
>>The Prime Minister: My hon. Friend makes a very important point. There are very strong
calls on all sides to ensure that we address fairness in funding. In the last Parliament
we allocated £390 million extra for fairer funding, and his own authorities, Dorset and
Poole, benefited from that, receiving £3.1 million and £3.2 million respectively. I
can tell him that that money is included in the baseline for schools funding in 2016 and
2017. But I know that there is unfairness in the current system and I want us to do
everything we can to make the funding formula fairer.
>>Mrs Sharon Hodgson (Washington and Sunderland West) (Lab): Nissan in my constituency has
just reached the half-a-million production mark for its new Qashqai model, breaking all
UK records. I am sure that the Prime Minister, and indeed the whole House, will wish to join
me in congratulating Nissan on that great achievement. Nissan’s constructive unionised
workforce has helped achieve that fantastic outcome, so why is the Prime Minister attacking
workers’ rights when in many cases, as at Nissan, trade unions are an overwhelming force
for good?
>>The Prime Minister: First, let me agree with the hon. Lady that the achievements at
Nissan are absolutely remarkable. One of the great privileges of my job is being able to
go and meet people there and see what they are doing. I think that I am right in saying
that the north-east of England now produces more cars than the whole of Italy, which is
something that I think we can be proud of. Of course, with the new Hitachi factory we
will now be manufacturing trains in the north-east as well. Look, the Trade Union Bill is not
what she says it is; it is to make sure that we do not have strikes based on very low turnouts.
Let me give her one example. A couple of years ago we had school strikes that shut schools
right across our country. The ballot was two years out of date and only 27% of people had
turned up to vote in it. Working parents across the country had to keep their children at
home when they should have been getting the public service they paid for. That is what
our Bill is about, and I hope that it will have support across the House.
>>Mr James Gray (North Wiltshire) (Con): The bravery of all our servicemen and women is
beyond question, but does the Prime Minister agree that the bravest of the brave must be
those who faced the invisible bullets of Ebola in the recent crisis in west Africa? Will
he take the opportunity to join me, along with Members of both Houses, at the great
north door of Westminster Hall straight after Prime Minister’s questions to welcome back
120 soldiers, sailors and airmen, together with aid workers, medical workers and others,
who did our bidding in west Africa?
>>The Prime Minister: I will be delighted to join my hon. Friend. One of the great privileges
of this job was being able recently to hold a reception at No. 10 for people who had served
in west Africa tackling Ebola. They are some of the bravest and most remarkable people
I have met, whether the nurses, the volunteers or members of Britain’s brave armed forces.
It really is remarkable what they have done. We are almost in a position to declare Sierra
Leone Ebola-free. Great work has been done by the people of Sierra Leone, but I think
that Britain was able to take on this task because we have good armed forces that are
properly funded, and having an aid budget at 0.7% of our GNP is something the whole
country can be proud of. That is exactly the sort of use of our aid budget, where we are
doing it with moral force and with our moral conscience but also keeping our country safe
at home. To those who sometimes wonder what are the uses of British troops, I say, “Get
a map out and have a look at Sierra Leone.”
>>Tom Blenkinsop (Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland) (Lab): The SSI steelworks
in Redcar are facing serious and imminent challenges. UK steel is of vital strategic
importance to the British economy. Will the Prime Minister urgently meet me, my hon. Friend
the Member for Redcar (Anna Turley) and the steelworkers’ union community so that we
can look at more positive ways of supporting our industry in order to protect it in much
the same way that other European Governments do?
>>The Prime Minister: The hon. Gentleman is quite right to raise this, and everyone is
concerned about the steelworks in Redcar. Obviously, we have taken the action of voting
with others in Europe against Chinese dumping. We have also provided over £30 million of
support in respect of high energy users. Also, by setting out our national infrastructure
plan, we are giving steel producers a sense of the demand in our country in the months
and years to come. I will certainly consult my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State
for Business, Innovations and Skills about the best sort of meeting we can have in order
to make sure we do everything we can to keep steelmaking in Redcar.
>>Graham Evans (Weaver Vale) (Con): Does the Prime Minister agree that this Government’s
commitment to spend 2% of GDP on defence protects our national and economic future, while giving
our 21st century armed forces the moral and financial support they need to protect our
nation’s security?
>>The Prime Minister: We have had to make difficult decisions in the spending review
and we will have to make further difficult decisions, but on the decision to increase
our defence spending in a very dangerous and uncertain world, when we face threats in Europe
with the behaviour of Russia and the threat from ISIL in the middle east, combined with
all the other threats, including cyber, it is absolutely right to increase this spending
and to make sure that membership of NATO remains the cornerstone of our defence. National security
will always be the top priority of this Government.
