Last quote by Chris Grayling

It's not about the specific purpose of where we might end up at that point in the negotiations ... what she is doing is setting out today the principles of a future relationship, she is talking about how we move the negotiations forward. We are a nation that meets its obligations. Of course we absolutely accept that Britain has obligations ... but what we are looking to do though, is not simply today to start talking about the nuts and bolts of negotiation.feedback

New bi-mode train technology offers seamless transfer from diesel power to electric that is undetectable to passengers ... This means that we no longer need to electrify every line to achieve the same significant improvements to journeys, and we will only electrify lines where it delivers a genuine benefit to passengers.feedback

HS2 will deliver vital links between some of our country's biggest cities, helping to drive economic growth and productivity in the north and midlands. As well as providing desperately needed new seats and better connecting our major cities, HS2 will help rebalance our economy.feedback

I'm very clear that the cabinet and the party are united behind Theresa May, united in determination to get the right deal for the country in Brexit, in the Brexit negotiations, and to make sure we continue the economic progress we've made.feedback

Jul 17 2017 - Brexit

We all want a Brexit process to lead to a situation where we have good, constructive economic and trade relations with out European neighbours, not as part of the European Union, but as their biggest customer. In the everyone's interests that we have an economically sensible, economically beneficial Brexit deal. And everyone's going to work for that – everyone in cabinet agrees that that is where we should be.feedback

Jul 17 2017 - Brexit

I read some of the stuff in the papers at the weekend and it bore no relation to the meetings I was in last week. The chancellor is absolutely right to say no one should be discussing, on or off the record, what takes place in cabinet meetings. I don't think there's any doubt about that at all. But the coverage I read at the weekend about the tense rows in the cabinet simply didn't happen – it wasn't like that.feedback

Jul 17 2017 - Brexit

All I can say is my experience of both being inside cabinet meetings and also with cabinet colleagues in the last few weeks is that I don't see these great divisions that are suggested in some of the Sunday newspapers. I have to say I think all of this is somewhat overblown.feedback

Jul 05 2017 - Unemployment

There is always going to be a debate around the Cabinet table about what to do and we are not all clones. But the bottom line is we are a team, we will do our best by the country, we will take decisions at future budgets that try to find the right balance between the competing pressures of spending money on public services and public employees where it is necessary to do so and also making sure we have the right economic policy to continue that growth, to continue the fall in unemployment.feedback

Jul 04 2017

If you look at where there are problems on the A-road network, it is the areas where a fairly significant regional route passes through a small town. The lorries congeal in the centre, there's congestion and … people for years have been saying: 'I want a bypass,' so we are making money available for that. These routes don't just unlock economic potential. There are quite a lot of places where there is the potential for housing developments on the edge of towns where a bypass going around the town can actually unlock housing as well.feedback

Jul 04 2017

Getting transport spending right is crucial for the country's future.feedback

The West Coast Partnership will support growth and better services on the West Coast Main Line while helping to ensure that HS2 becomes the backbone of Britain's railways. This will create more seats for passengers, improve connections between our great cities, free up space on existing rail lines and generate jobs and economic growth throughout the country. I look forward to seeing the bidders' innovative ideas to put passengers at the heart of the railway.feedback

Southeastern is one of the busiest franchises in the UK, running almost two thousand services every weekday.

We will listen to what passengers say in the current public consultation, and we will seek to make changes and improvements only with their support.feedback

Jun 20 2017 - Northern Ireland

We're having good constructive discussions and I'm confident that we'll reach a sensible agreement. The talks are going on, they are going well.feedback

Apr 15 2017

People should take a long, hard think about what they need, about where they're going to be driving and should make best endeavours to buy the least polluting vehicle they can. I don't think diesel is going to disappear but someone who is buying a car to drive around a busy city may think about buying a low-emission vehicle rather than a diesel.feedback

Apr 10 2017

This sends a clear message that important decisions about prisoners cannot be made efficiently or fairly in the face of these cuts. We look forward to hearing from the Lord Chancellor with her plans to give effect to the judgment.feedback

There is no change to FCO travel advice, this is purely about making sure that when they do travel they are safe. Let me be absolutely clear this is not a vote of no confidence in the security measures in any other country. I do not want this to be seen as a thumbs down to any of the security measures in any other country. The safety and security of the travelling public will always be our paramount concern.feedback

I know the whole house will recognise that we face a constantly evolving threat. The changes we are making are an important part of that process.feedback

Services on the South Eastern rail network have been unacceptably poor for far too long. Passengers have endured disruption, overcrowding and delays, particularly during redevelopment work at London Bridge station, and they deserve better. That is why this consultation is so important. Appointing a new franchise operator from 2018 provides us with a great opportunity to sort out the problems which have plagued the South Eastern network, and deliver the high quality of service that customers expect.feedback

Mar 14 2017

This consultation sets out what we expect the next operator to deliver for passengers, including working more closely with Network Rail to ensure a focus on performance, and innovative use of technology to improve both ticket-buying and compensation if things do go wrong.feedback

In essence this is a battle between the unions and the management over whether they will allow new technologies and new ways of working on the railway. It is deeply, deeply unfair on the passengers who are left in the middle of this dispute.feedback

Dec 06 2016

When something goes wrong we need the best possible joined-up approach to sorting out the problem. This is about creating a single, joined-up team made up of members of network rail, members of the train operator.feedback

She'll be mindful of the need to unite the party, and she'll, I think, put together a team that will do the right thing for the country. Not an easy challenge, but that's what you do if you're prime minister and I'm confident that what we'll see over the next 48 hours as she becomes prime minister, and of course you can't have cabinet reshuffles until the new prime minister is indeed prime minister.feedback

There is clearly a cancer at the heart of Gordon Brown's administration in Number 10 that is doing things that all reasonable people would say are totally unacceptable. It is disseminating lies about opposition politicians. Gordon Brown himself has to sort this out and apologise. He has to sort it all out so it can never happen again.feedback

Apr 10 2009

The student visa system is being used by terrorists to try and get people into the country. If it's being abused by terrorists groups around the world then the rules have to be much tighter. The government has been in power for a decade. There have been a number of issues around the student visa system over the years. These have been loopholes by ministers own admissions. They really need now to make sure things are absolutely water tight.feedback

If Mr Blunkett carried on having meetings with them, and his ex-girlfriend says business was discussed at those meetings, Blunkett denies that, but there is a dispute between the two of them over what happened – if this is the case it is a serious offence.feedback

Nov 02 2005

I think there are still big unanswered questions about private meetings between Mr Blunkett and members of the family who control shares in DNA bio science after he returned to government.
