Oral Answers to Questions — Church Commissioners: Child Abuse (17 July 2014)

John Hemming: Some of the more serious historic allegations relate to children who were in care at the time of the event. In Jersey, there are allegations that children did not survive to their adulthood to make complaints. In England, the Government still do not record what happens when children disappear from care, using the record “Leaving care for other reasons”. Will the Secretary of State...

Opposition Day — [3rd Allotted Day]: DWP: Performance (30 June 2014)

John Hemming: I apologise to the House for having been in a Statutory Instrument Committee—in fact, on DWP issues—listening to the hon. Member for Rhondda (Chris Bryant) padding out his speech while saying very little. That is essentially where we are: we are not quite sure what the Labour party’s alternative is to what we are doing. However, Labour has a motion. In it, Labour complains...

Opposition Day — [3rd Allotted Day]: DWP: Performance (30 June 2014)

John Hemming: I am sorry, but I will not take an intervention from the hon. Gentleman because it will knock somebody else out. The Chair of the Work and Pensions Committee, the hon. Member for Aberdeen South (Dame Anne Begg), was quite right to say that welfare reform is a very complex area. However, there is no question about it: we have to make it so that people are better off in work than out of work....

Business of the House: NHS Investigations (Jimmy Savile) (26 June 2014)

John Hemming: I agree with the Secretary of State that our first thought has to be for the victims, and that in future we must listen to the powerless and not block inquiries. If we go back to 2011—before Savile died—an American journalist, Leah McGrath Goodman, was banned from coming to the UK to investigate child abuse, including by Jimmy Savile. Even more recently, she was arrested at the...

G7: Jobs and Work (11 June 2014)

John Hemming: One always wonders whether the Opposition have actually learned anything while in opposition, and listening to the shadow Secretary of State gave some indication of whether they have or not. I have had some useful conversations recently with Lord Turnbull, who, as Cabinet Secretary, was the senior civil servant and, I would argue, has some understanding of how national fiscal policy operates....

G7: Jobs and Work (11 June 2014)
