[Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Harvey’s Law (2 March 2015)

John Hemming: I join the hon. Gentleman in congratulating all the campaigners who raised this issue, which is very important to pet lovers. For most of my life, I have had a pet. Sadly, two of them got run over close to our house, and we found them not very well or dead. However, it would have been much worse if we had not known what had happened. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that it would not be...

It currently employs about 260 staff and has a turnover of 20 million. I have declared in the register an income of around 180,000 from that company. I attend a meeting once a month and chair the...

Opposition Day — [18th Allotted Day]: Members’ Paid Directorships and Consultancies (25 February 2015)

John Hemming: The problem with that question is that the hon. Lady has made an assumption that I do not make other donations to charity. I do make other donations, but they are not set out in my entry in the register. I am sorry, but that claim is basically wrong. I do a vast amount of casework. I have my advice bureau on Saturdays, and the maximum number I have dealt with is 38 groups of people....

Point of Order (11 February 2015)

John Hemming: In terms of discussing this at the Procedure Committee, the fact that I cannot even raise the point of order is in itself a useful piece of information for it to consider.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council (4 February 2015)

John Hemming: Rotherham, like all local authorities responsible for children, submits a return to the Government on what is happening to the children—the SSDA903 return. Every year, Rotherham is audited on what happens with its finances, so that the finances are not fabricated. In the SSDA903 returns, certain children leave care for “other” reasons; they may be trafficked, they may be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Child Sexual Abuse (Independent Panel Inquiry) (4 February 2015)

John Hemming: I have documentary evidence to substantiate the allegation that the Foreign Office recently turned a blind eye to child abuse in St Helena.

In both cases, that was done by UK Government authorities in recent years; I am not arguing that Ministers were involved. Are...

If we agree to this as a process, we are, in essence, potentially agreeing to swapping a pair of chromosomes—[Interruption.] I know that we are not agreeing...

Living Wage (Reporting): Human Fertilisation and Embryology (3 February 2015)

John Hemming: They remain—

Living Wage (Reporting): Human Fertilisation and Embryology (3 February 2015)

John Hemming: I will not take lots of interventions because it would damage the debate. They remain inherited, and, in essence, we face the same difficulty. My concern is a legalistic one, which is that we are moving away from a society in which we value people as people to one where we start looking at people in terms of what categories they fall into and things such as that. To that extent, I cannot back...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Firefighters’ Pensions (2 February 2015)
