12:03 am
doing for them. we should send sympathy and solidarity. i join with the prime minister in wishing whales well. and i will be cheering along with everybody else. mr. speaker -- there is life after all.

12:04 am
>> let me join the leader of the opposition with condolences to all those who've been victims of appalling terrorist attacks as a second bag that in modena, but also istanbul as well. on the issue of what has happened in our communities to see new jobs and new investment column, we have made sure that there is not only a minimum wage, but a national living wage. and yes, he talks about one recently visiting the site red-faced now one business day or now employing almost 5000 people appeared we are never going to succeed if we hold onto jobs in industries that have come uncompetitive. that's why the government is doing. >> mr. speaker, the problem is the minimum wage does not up to a living weekly wage. you must understand not. could i take in northeast to the
12:05 am
lengthy oil refinery? in 2009, hundreds of oil workers walked out on strike because agency workers from italy and portugal were brought and i'm over wages to do the same job. down the road in boston, the average rate across all countries 33. jimmie smith unfitted 26. in boston at nine pounds 13. if they intervene to staff up for those communities that feel they've been left behind. >> we have intervened with all kinds of companies that don't pay the minimum wage. we've intervene for the first time something they've are never dead of naming the come in a symbolic. those interventions helping make a difference. the economy growing and
12:06 am
encouraging investment. what we want our industries of the future. record numbers are at work a 2.5 million more people have a job since i became prime minister in the british economy is the strongest in the g7. >> mr. speaker, this speaker, the government promised to rebalance our economy. half of 1% are infrastructure investments is going to the northeast. london is getting 44 times more than that. does he not think it is time to have a real rebalancing of our economy and invest in those areas losing out so badly? >> i think he is talking on the performance of the parts of our economy doing well. if you look at the fastest-growing part of our economy, it is the southeast. if you want to see where x births are growing faster, and
12:07 am
it is north london. there's a huge amount of work to do to make sure we heal the north-south divide and for the first time a proper strategy of investing in infrastructure and training and skills that make a difference four years regional policy was trying to distribute a few government jobs outside london. now with god skills, training, growth and delivery. >> jeremy corbin. he met the idea to redistribution is interesting. the investment in london is more than a total of every other english region combined. does he not think this issue should be addressed? in march, the government investment was cut in order to meet fiscal rules. how does the prime minister think the economy can be rebalanced them with little investment remains reinforces the regional imbalances in this country? >> first of all, again talking down the questions the unemployment rate in the northwest is lower than the unemployment rate in london.
12:08 am
his figures are wrong. in terms of investment, yes of course we need to have the government investment family cottage in hs two, the railways. the biggest program since it during times. you can only invest if you have a strong rowing economy. we know what papers recipe is. mark byron, more spending, more dead. that's when investment collapses. >> jeremy corbin. >> mr. speaker, the chance that finally did this week but he has to do in statement and what i asked the prime minister to do last week. a key part of the fiscal role. we now know the deficit was supposed and managed by 2015 was an even begun by 2020. isn't it time to admit that austerity is the failure and the way forward is to invest in infrastructure, invest in growth
12:09 am
and invest in jobs? >> that's simply not the case. the rules had flexibilities. but the point i would make. i would take his advice were seriously if i could think of a single spending reduction that he had deported at any time in the last six years. the fact is this government had to take difficult decisions together deficit under control from 11% of gdp we inherited, biggest almost an entire world to under 3% this year because of difficult decisions. if he could tell that one of those decisions he supported i'd be interested to hear it. >> jeremy corbin. >> speaker, obviously spreading on its own benches. the business secretary has seen the like. they now agree with my honorable friend, the shadow chancellor, and the massive investment program we've been advocating.
12:10 am
is it time we think the member for the education work he's been doing in this house? will he now confirm the chancellor's fiscal rule instead and invest in the northeast, all those places that feel with good reason they've been left behind in the investment is going to the wrong places and they end up with new jobs come of low wages and insecure employment. >> prime minister. >> we wouldn't see 2.5 million more people in work and we wouldn't see full unemployment and rising employment and every single region in our country. the only area where i think the right honorable gentleman has been a massive contribution as in recent weeks he's come up with the biggest job creation scheme i've ever seen in my life. almost everyone on the bench behind and has had an opportunity to serve on the front edge. [cheers and applause] rather like the old job creation
12:11 am
schemes, it's been a bit of a revolving door. they get a job sometimes for only a few hours and then they go back to their benches. it's a job creation scheme nonetheless and we should thank them for that. thank you, mr. speaker. on the days when significant questions have been leveled with collect the decision-making of politicians, military leaders and intelligence services, many constituents will be seeking reassurance that the lives of their loved ones were not given in vain and the mistakes made will never happen again. can i ask the prime minister, will he ensure the lessons learned will be fully examined and acted upon so there can never be a repeat of the tragic mistakes made over a decade ago. >> i can certainly give that assurance.
12:12 am
we will have plenty of time this afternoon to discuss the report explaining why the spam. he can really learn the lessons for the future. we want to spend time looking at decisions going to war and all the rest of it. the most important thing for all of us is to think i would make sure government works better, legal advice is considered better. all of those things are perhaps the best legacy we can take from this whole thing. >> today is hugely important for muslims at home and abroad at the end of ramadan. i'm sure we wish them all. today is also a day where our thoughts are with all the loved ones who lost people close to them in iraq and all those hundreds of thousands of families in iraq who also mourned loved ones. the report confirms on the
12:13 am
28th of july 2002, tony blair wrote to president bush stating i will be with you forever. does the prime minister understand what the families of the dead and injured u.k. service for now and the hundreds of thousands of iraqis feel that they were deceived about the reasons for going to war in iraq? >> lit major in the right honorable gentleman in this country and all over the world the end of ramadan. in terms of the report be discussed in detail later. i don't want to preempt other things that were going to say in a statement. clearly we need to learn the lessons of the report, study it carefully. millions of words, thousands of pages and i think we should save our remarks when we debated in the house. >> mr. speaker, the report capitalizes the failures in
12:14 am
planning for post-conflict iraq and concludes that in the u.k. did not achieve its objective. a lack of planning has also been evident in relation to afghanistan, to libya, syria and most recently with no plan what the weather for a brexit. when will the u.k. government start learning from the mistakes of the past that we are not condemned to repeat them in the future? >> he's actually right about the failure to plan is very, very clear. i can read from his statement. when the invasion began in the u.k. policy rested on an assumption that there be a well executed u.s.-led operation in a relatively benign charity environment. the difficulties encountered in iraq could not have been known in advance. he says we do not agree that hindsight is required. he's very clear on that point.
12:15 am
but i would say in terms of planning is what i put in place as prime minister following would happen in iraq properly advised, properly constituted meeting and the national security secretariat, all those things including the proper listening to expert advice of the national security council. all those things are designed to avoid the problems that the government had been the case of iraq. the only point i would make is there is actually no set of arrangements and plans that can provide perfection in any of these cases. military intervention we can argue that there is ever justified. i believe it is. it's always difficult planing for the intervention. i don't think in this house we should be naïve in anyway that there is a perfect set of plan or arrangement that can solve these problems in perpetuity. there aren't. >> would my right honorable friend join me in congratulating
12:16 am
southend council, which is once again under the control of the conservative party, swiftly acting to sort out the mass left by the previous hopeless administration and would he agree with me that the alternative city of culture next year will produce a considerable boost to the local economy. >> let me pay tribute to my honorable friend for as long in a matter that all it has to offer next year will benefit from the campaign he has run into will join him in encouraging old to see it for themselves. >> two miles north of shag rug already mentioned today is that town called bowls over and they heard the same time they say
12:17 am
300 million pounds for the nhs. at that time and they decided this government but the health of the local theater to close the hospital. you to understand that when the house was close, it's gone forever. i want to hear to use a little bit of that money. not very much to save the hospital, save the feds come as a big jobs and then i'd have a headline, say in the prime minister save the hospital.
12:18 am
>> i would look very carefully. i don't have the information. look at it very carefully. but i would say is we are putting 19 billion pounds extra into the nhs in this parliament as for what was on the side of buses and all the rest of it, my argument has been and will always be a strong economy you're required to fund the nhs. do not [inaudible] my right honorable friend agree with me that the apprenticeships are absolutely vital part of economic development in our proud northern town? >> my right honorable friend is right. the service at the target in this parliament. a ball just as we achieve those trained in the last parliament. i wish her well with what i hope is the first of many americans that she was v. thank you, mr. speaker.
12:19 am
before i ask my question, can i think the prime minister for the support he gave my campaign about the schedule inquiry which is given to the 70s with thousands and thousands of deformities. i like thank you for the support of that campaign. my question is our universities and global success stories outward looking, open for business with the world and attracting the brightest and the best students and researchers to produce groundbreaking research. and the less you commend u.k. -- >> a native single sentence question. forgive me. the >> university received 836 million pounds last year. what assurances can the prime minister gave that in light of the fact we are not of the european union and the money
12:20 am
will be saved? >> let me do the honorable lady because she has raised this case many times and i can tell medicine and health care has been gathering evidence for a review by an expert working group on many things that i've met on three occasions. i think we are making progress. until britain leads the european union, we get a residence in other programs as you'd expect and all contracts have to be fulfilled. it will be for a future government to make sure we continue to fund our universities way to make sure they continue to live a world. thank you, mr. speaker. my right honorable friend will know the closure but the loss of over 100 jobs has raised the need for major regeneration across. but my honorable friend outline the support made by the government to ensure plants can
12:21 am
be taken forward? >> first of all, it's worth making the point is a very sad moment for the staff who have worked so long for the business. for them the ascent in the high street ran. there's a job come the way of life companies are preparing for retirement pension and we must do all we can to help find a new word. many vacancies in the retail side to her to make sure they help get those jobs if with 18 million pounds for a number of initiatives in which he says that because keeping a town center vibrant is vital. this sits alongside the biggest cut in history with some 6.7 billion pounds in the next five years. we need to say to make the most of the business rate cut. >> mr. speaker, one of my constituents who have been watching for some time with the assessment after the involvement of my office, they sent the
12:22 am
vulnerable constituents still remains assessing the rate to find the situation in the regulation -- [inaudible] >> i congratulate the right old lady. many of us have done the right thing with constituency that assessment but haven't turned out to be a great. if she gives me the details, i will look at this specific case and see what can be done. >> a report from the north created by this government highlights the opportunity to halt the growing divide between north and south with 850,000 new jobs and 97 billion pounds of economic growth at 2015. does my right honorable friend agree that to build on our economic press. we need to continue to rebound timber structures running from london to the region, particularly the north is
12:23 am
tingling. >> i think i honorable friend is right. what that report shows is that it doesn't take necessary actions to see a continued north-south divide and we are committed for increased spending by 50% by 61 billion pounds in this parliament. my right honorable friend was spending 380 million pounds. >> prime minister -- [inaudible] he was kidnapped while traveling and ethiopian. he was sentenced to death. and not able to present any defense whatsoever. given its been denied access to life in children and to year to no legal representation and
12:24 am
suggested is fatal. in your final weeks in office, the family demand immediate release and bring him home to be reunited with his wife and children. >> what i can reassure the right gentleman about his very close interest in the case. the foreign secretary was in ethiopia recently. our council has enabled to meet on a number of occasions and we are working with him and with the government to get this resolved. >> one of the report ticket so much attention as the cdc report, which confirms that the emergency is inadequate. why has it taken so many years to know they care for too long, too few.yours, too few consultants. we now have in place to buy plants for the right number
12:25 am
of.yours and consultant to ensure constituents get the care they deserve. >> my right honorable friend raised an important point that i do think the ctc is acting effectively getting into hospitals, finding that practice, reporting swiftly. we haven't announced the fact that as we should be. the practice is unacceptable. it's a change in government that we've been the ones that are set up the role to have a zero-tolerance approach to to make sure things are put right. thank you, mr. speaker. the business innovations hills once the u.k. to buy or tens of billions of pounds to create a great britain found worth up to 100 billion. can i ask the pm whether this is a formal plan or merely an attempt to conjure a plan amid
12:26 am
the u.k. government? >> we're spending billions of pounds on the british economy and investment have that dish automatically upon classes for scotland. clearly, my colleagues are in a leadership election and non-side of the house rather than unity. the never-ending -- [cheers and applause] i thought you wanted one. you don't want one? hands up who wants the leadership election. i'm so confused. one minute it is like the ego is going to swoop and the next minute at the top of the ski job. in case you hadn't noticed, we are having a leadership election. >> right from the start, the united kingdom has been an outward looking trading union. the trade your --
12:27 am
>> the honorable gentleman is entitled to be heard and his constituents are represented. thank you, mr. speaker. and talking up the prospects for investment in the british economy. but can the prime minister said to make sure we attract as much trade and investment in possible? >> my honorable friend makes an important point and a clear instruction has done around the world, to the u.k. ministers are clear about this debris should be doing all we can to engage as hard as we can to the investment we want to see in the u.k. businesses clear whether they agree or disagree with the decision the countries made, they've got to go want and make the most of the opportunities we have had thank you, mr. speaker.
12:28 am
but the real prospects on the horizon, the author from the chance to his cunning classes, yet companies worry whether they will make a profit in the u.k., not how much tax they will pay on it. can the prime minister tell us what immediate action to government would take to protect people's jobs and likelihood right now? >> immediate action has been taken not least to encourage lending by changing the reserve asset ratios they insist on good that is very important because that's a short-term measure that can house the early effects. but the chancellor was talking about is we are now in this new situation to make sure we can figure all of our policies to take it damage of the situation we will be a period that will mean changes to taxes, changes to the way the focus for the foreign office and business department. all the things we can make a start on irrespective of the
12:29 am
fact she and i were on the same side as the referendum campaign. >> my honorable friend with the question, may i remind the prime minister that next-line the greatest airshow of the world takes place in my constituency to which all right honorable members are expected to attend. may i remind my right honorable friend that last time, two years ago, deals worth $201 billion were signed. he will encourage our members to attend. >> i think i'm one of the first prime ministers in a while and i'm happy to announce i will be going back this year. we have the second-largest heiress a sinister in the world and it is a brilliant moment to showcase the industry to the rest of the world and clinched
