Social Action, Responsibility and Heroism Bill: Clause 3 — Responsibility (20 October 2014)

Bob Russell: Will the shadow Minister join me in congratulating all those involved in producing the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974, which celebrated its 40th anniversary this year? An estimated 40,000 lives have been saved in the workplace, and there was not a single fatality during the construction of the Olympic stadium.

Social Action, Responsibility and Heroism Bill: Clause 1 — When this Act applies (20 October 2014)

Bob Russell: Does the Minister accept that if first aid was made part of the national curriculum, there would be a whole generation of young people coming through who knew what to do in a road crash, for example? The first rule for those going to assist in a road crash is to ensure that they and others are not put at risk; in other words, they have to safeguard the patient or patients. Does the Minister...

Isil: War Graves (20 October 2014)

Bob Russell: The anomaly is not acceptable, because post-1945 war graves have not been maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. I would suggest that this is in breach of the armed forces covenant. If there is a will, there is a way. The CWGC should be allowed to take over and maintain those graves of military personnel who have died since 1945.

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 October 2014)

Bob Russell: Minister, hopefully you recall that at the witness session on Tuesday morning I made an observation to the chief executive of National Savings & Investments that there is probably not an MP in the House who has not had constituents contact him or her because they have had a benefit of one sort or another terminated or suspended, and the first they knew about it was when there was no money...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 October 2014)

Bob Russell: Thank you very much.

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 October 2014)

Bob Russell: Minister, I would like to congratulate those who have drafted the Bill. Clause 8(2)(a), as paragraph 52 of the explanatory notes states, enables “members of the armed forces who have been posted overseas…to be treated as being in the UK.” I really am pleased about that, but I want to pursue it a bit further. I am sure, Minister, that you would wish HM Treasury to be...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 October 2014)

Bob Russell: Thank you, because any excuse—

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Constitutional Reform (Timetable) (15 October 2014)

Bob Russell: When the Government look at the timetable for constitutional reform in Scotland, will they take account of the fact that more people live in Essex than voted yes in the referendum and that if United Kingdom residents are to be treated fairly and equally, what is good enough for Scotland is good enough for East Anglia.

Oral Answers to Questions — Deputy Prime Minister: Topical Questions (14 October 2014)

Bob Russell: Will the Deputy Prime Minister comment further on his announcement last week of the introduction of the first ever NHS waiting time standard for people suffering with mental health conditions?

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witness (14 October 2014)

Bob Russell: I want to follow up on the point made by my colleague David Heath. Whose responsibility will it be to inform folk that their payment has been stopped?

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witness (14 October 2014)

Bob Russell: I would ask for that clarity because, with respect, not everybody will have online access. I suspect that every MP here today will be aware of constituents who suddenly find when they try to buy something that benefits have stopped and nobody has told them. Following on from the point that Mr Heath made, I can see issues arising with payments being stopped and nobody knowing until some while...

Business of the House: Backbench Business — Palestine and Israel (13 October 2014)

Bob Russell: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

Business of the House (11 September 2014)

Bob Russell: May we have a debate on a dysfunctional aspect of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills? When the list for today’s oral questions was first published, I was in fourth position with the following question to the Secretary of State: “What guidance he issues to companies delivering publicly-funded projects on taking the national interest into account when awarding...

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Pubs (11 September 2014)

Bob Russell: I endorse the question that has just been put, so will the Minister look across the Government—if we can have joined-up Government—at possibly reducing the rateable value on traditional community local public houses, which face a lot of competition from binge-drinking premises and supermarkets?

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Topical Questions (11 September 2014)

Bob Russell: On a point of order, Mr Speaker.

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Topical Questions (11 September 2014)

Bob Russell: The Secretary of State will not be here very long and I would like him to hear my point of order.

Bob Russell: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office what guidance he issues to companies delivering publicly-funded projects on taking the national interest into account when awarding contracts and sub-contracts.

Written Answers — Defence: War Graves (11 September 2014)

Bob Russell: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence with reference to the Answer of 14 May 2014, Official Report, column 613W, on war graves, what further progress has been made on discussions with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission on the transfer of graves maintained by the Ministry of Defence to that Commissioner.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 September 2014)

Bob Russell: Embracing three centuries, the garrison town of Colchester has welcomed thousands of Scottish soldiers, many with their families. We wish that to continue. Does the Leader of the House agree with the Defence Select Committee that if Scotland ceased to be part of the UK—and we have the best armed forces in Europe—this would pose serious security and defence risks for a separate...

Written Answers — Defence: Armed Forces (10 September 2014)

Bob Russell: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many nationals of which countries other than the UK serve in each service of the armed forces; and what proportion of each such service such foreign nationals represent.
