Business of the House (23 October 2014)

Julian Smith: Two hundred years ago, the British Government made in France one of the canniest property investments in British history. May we have a debate on Britain’s incredible relationship—despite its ups and downs—with France, particularly in terms of trade?

Royal Assent: Five Year Forward View (23 October 2014)

Julian Smith: Women chief executives now lead every one of the three hospitals serving my constituency. We have to thank all members of the NHS for this report, but will the Health Secretary comment in particular on the role of women in delivering NHS change and development?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Taxis/Private Hire Vehicles (23 October 2014)

Julian Smith: I urge the Government to look one more time at the provisions in the Deregulation Bill, which is currently before the Lords. In northern towns such as Skipton, taxis have been a key part of the problem of child sexual exploitation.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Foreign National Offenders (Removal) (22 October 2014)

Julian Smith: The Home Secretary is being incredibly generous to the Opposition. May I ask her to take herself back to her first days in office and clarify for the House just what a mess she inherited and had to work to sort out?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (22 October 2014)

Julian Smith: Today Jim O’Neill completes his final City Growth Commission report. Will the Prime Minister and the Chancellor continue their support for Jim to ensure that a future Conservative Government deliver on a northern powerhouse?

BT Openreach (21 October 2014)

Julian Smith: I am pleased to hear that the pilot scheme is happening and that data are being shared. When I was at a presentation in North Yorkshire a few weeks ago, there was a still some reticence on the part of BT Openreach to release much of its data, so I urge the Minister to continue his campaign and to persuade it to share as much data as possible.

BT Openreach (21 October 2014)

Julian Smith: There are two ways that Openreach can help, in relation to my hon. Friend’s first two points. The first way is through data. Openreach has a large amount of data on who is taking up broadband services, which at the moment it does not release. It is really important that Openreach considers whether it can release more data. The second way is through this new concept called fibre to the...

The Chairman of Ways and Means took the Chair as Deputy Speaker (Standing Order No. 3) — European Union (Referendum) Bill (17 October 2014)

Julian Smith: On the issue of sides and changing them, several months ago the hon. Gentleman said that the only way to secure a referendum was to vote Conservative. Why has he changed his mind? Was he telling an untruth then, or is he telling an untruth now?

Business of the House: ISIL: Iraq and Syria (16 October 2014)

Julian Smith: The women and men of our intelligence and security services are doing the most incredible job at this difficult time. Will my right hon. Friend pass on the thanks of this House and confirm that if they need anything—whether support from this place or further budget and financial support—they will be given it?

Business of the House (16 October 2014)

Julian Smith: The transatlantic trade and investment partnership has the potential to bring huge opportunities for British businesses to trade more easily with our biggest trading partner. May we have a statement from the Government to bang the drum for the agreement, update the House on where we are with it and nail some of the dodgy myths that have been put about in recent weeks?

Women and Equalities: Tata Steel (16 October 2014)

Julian Smith: May I direct the Minister to an article in The Economist that mentions Gary Klesch, head of the Klesch company, which is thinking of taking over this Tata unit? It states that: “Europe needs people like Mr Klesch…he brings discipline and fresh ideas.” Will the Minister reject the doom-mongering of the Labour party, and support Gary Klesch in making the most of this business?

Women and Equalities: Public Institutions (16 October 2014)

Julian Smith: What steps she is taking to increase representation of women on the boards of public institutions.

Women and Equalities: Public Institutions (16 October 2014)

Julian Smith: Does the Minister agree that as well as board appointments, it is vital that we have more women chief executives in public sector roles? Will she pay tribute to Ros Tolcher, who has become the chief executive of Harrogate hospital, which serves part of my constituency, taking to 100% the female leadership of NHS hospitals supporting Skipton and Ripon?

Bill Presented: Devolution (Scotland Referendum) (14 October 2014)

Julian Smith: The Yorkshire economy is twice the size of that of Wales. Yorkshire’s population, at 5.3 million, is similar to that of Scotland, and Yorkshire, like Scotland, has a brand and a name that is recognised the world over. We saw that in the summer with the Tour de France, which stunned television viewers across the world. The Grand Depart has been recognised as one of the best in cycling...

Bill Presented: Devolution (Scotland Referendum) (14 October 2014)

Julian Smith: Will the right hon. Gentleman now confirm that there is not a cat in hell’s chance of Labour coming to a conclusion on the issue of English votes for English laws by the next election—yes or no?

Bill Presented: Devolution (Scotland Referendum) (14 October 2014)

Julian Smith: Labour has 31 MPs in Yorkshire. Has he had any representations thus far from them on their views about the importance of English votes on English laws for Yorkshire people?

Government Strategy Against IS (12 September 2014)

Julian Smith: The Minister has rightly said that the Government must be given freedom to act. May I urge him to resist the attempts, such as in questions today, for the House to micro-manage this policy over the weeks ahead?

Business of the House (4 September 2014)

Julian Smith: Following the horrors contained in the Jay report, many people across Yorkshire just cannot believe that Rotherham council has today retained control of children’s services. May we have an urgent debate on how quickly the Government can move in and have the Department for Education install an independent trust to look after children in Rotherham?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Child Sex Abuse (Rotherham) (2 September 2014)

Julian Smith: It beggars belief to many across Yorkshire that Rotherham council today retains responsibility for children’s services. I urge my right hon. Friend, at ministerial meetings, to look carefully at stripping the council of children’s services, as we have done in Doncaster, Slough and, previously, Hackney. I also urge her to look at the role of legal officers within the CPS, who in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Birmingham Schools (22 July 2014)

Julian Smith: As well as the counter-extremism unit, my right hon. Friend’s predecessor put in place a whole set of measures for looking at barring teachers, making funding more difficult to exclude poor schools, and having no-notice inspections. Is it not vital that we reassure parents through the action that this Government have already taken?
