Police Grant Report (England and Wales) (10 Feb 2016)

Kevan Jones: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Police Grant Report (England and Wales) (10 Feb 2016)

Kevan Jones: I think that the hon. Gentleman has to sit down when I stand up.

Police Grant Report (England and Wales) (10 Feb 2016)

Kevan Jones: I know that the present Government find it difficult to distinguish between revenue and capital, among other concepts, but the hon. Gentleman has said that no one will lose cash. Durham, for instance, has an “outstanding” force—the only one in the country—but that force must take 3 million out of its budget this year because of wage increases and other pressures....

Police Grant Report (England and Wales) (10 Feb 2016)

Kevan Jones: rose—

Police Grant Report (England and Wales) (10 Feb 2016)

Kevan Jones: I wanted to put the record straight for the hon. Member for Tamworth (Christopher Pincher). As the hon. Member for Kingston and Surbiton (James Berry) rightly says, Durham is the only constabulary in the country that has received an “outstanding” rating for efficiency five times from Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs inspectors. In spite of that, however, it is going to...

Police Grant Report (England and Wales) (10 Feb 2016)

Kevan Jones: I am interested in what the hon. Gentleman is saying, but will he address the point raised by my right hon. Friend the Member for Delyn (Mr Hanson)? The central grant to counties such as Durham is far more important than the precept, given that even a large increase in our precept will not generate much cash because of the number of band A properties in County Durham. Does that not mean that...

Police Grant Report (England and Wales) (10 Feb 2016)

Kevan Jones: Will the hon. Gentleman give way on that point?

Police Grant Report (England and Wales) (10 Feb 2016)

Kevan Jones: This Government clearly have a small-state Conservative view of the world, as we have seen in local government, which will be changed radically by this week’s settlement. Does my right hon. Friend agree that what the average member of the public wants is the reassurance of having police in their communities, and that what is being proposed in the small-state Conservative world that is...

Local Government Finance (8 Feb 2016)

Kevan Jones: For the benefit of the PPSs, my local authority is County Durham. It is a bit off, Mr Speaker, that the Secretary of State has all the figures, but they have not been released to councils, which means we have no way of scrutinising his answers. I wish to raise the point also raised by my hon. Friend the Member for Halton (Derek Twigg) about the Better Care Fund. I agree with the Secretary of...

Kevan Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what discussions he has had with the Romanian government about a NATO Black Sea fleet.

Public Finances: Scotland (3 Feb 2016)

Kevan Jones: This is an important debate not just because it proposes a fiscal framework for Scotland, but because of the huge impact on my electors in North Durham. The Secretary of State said that he wanted no detriment to Scotland and a fair deal for the rest of the United Kingdom, but we do not know that there will be a fair deal for the rest of the United Kingdom. The Secretary of State said,...

Public Finances: Scotland (3 Feb 2016)

Kevan Jones: No, I do not. Scottish Members were crying over Barnett, but my constituents would welcome the levels of expenditure that we see in Scotland. The main point is this, though. How can I, a Member of the House of Commons, scrutinise this deal if it is done behind closed doors, in a way that is clearly intended to satisfy the Scottish nationalist party—[Interruption.] The point is that I...

Public Finances: Scotland (3 Feb 2016)

Kevan Jones: I would say this to the hon. Gentleman, whom I consider a friend. He is talking about percentage cuts to the Scottish budget, but he should look at areas, such as the north-east, that have had far bigger cuts proportionally. Unlike him, his party and his Government, people in those areas do not have the ability to raise taxes. Why have the Scottish Government not used the tax-raising powers...

Public Finances: Scotland (3 Feb 2016)

Kevan Jones: Use them to raise money.
