Supply and Appropriation (Main Estimates) Bill: English Votes for English Laws (15 Jul 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: Does my hon. Friend agree that even though there is a simplicity—and simplicity can be very nice—to some of the arguments being put forward in favour the proposal, one area where it really falls down is on the issue of Barnett consequentials? Something can look as English as cricket from Lords on a Sunday afternoon, but when one examines the impact with the Barnett consequentials,...

Regional Support for the Arts — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (15 Jul 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Rosindell. I thank the hon. Member for Newark (Robert Jenrick) for securing what has been an excellent debate. He made the point that although it is not a question of London versus the rest, there are important issues about how the arts are funded outside London and the metropolitan areas. He spoke with passion about the need for a...

Public Sector Broadcasting (Diversity) — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (14 Jul 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Streeter. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Newcastle upon Tyne Central (Chi Onwurah) for a thoughtful, insightful and passionate debate on a subject of great importance. Her speech was fascinating for the range—indeed, the diversity—of the material it covered. The issue is about fairness, and there is also a strong...

Public Sector Broadcasting (Diversity) — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (14 Jul 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: I certainly empathise, and other regions might have other issues as well. I, too, would speak up about that as a Member from Wales, were I not speaking impartially. Positive steps point the way to further improvement, but more remains to be done. During charter review, we will be calling on the BBC to live up to its role as the nation’s broadcaster and properly to represent our United...

Business of the House (14 Jul 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: I am sure the Leader of the House possesses some strengths, but I think he is a suburban sort of chap, so may I suggest that over the summer he schedules some time to visit the countryside and ponder what might happen if a few foxes get ripped apart by some hounds in a chase? It normally means that the foxes get killed, which suggests, in my view, that all he is doing is repealing the Hunting...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Children: Maintenance (10 Jul 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what assessment he has made of the effects of the introduction of charges for the use of the Child Maintenance Scheme on families and children.

BBC: Topical Questions (9 Jul 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: The Secretary of State was forced to tell us elements of the financial settlement for the BBC, but there is still no proper process for charter renewal. He says now that he will publish the Green Paper. Will he make an oral statement to the House on this matter before the summer recess? The simple one-word answer “yes” will do us nicely for today.

Bill Presented: English Votes on English Laws (7 Jul 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Bill Presented: English Votes on English Laws (7 Jul 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: I am intrigued by the hon. Gentleman’s reference to “cross-border”. Will he clarify whether there are even more parts of this jigsaw than we thought hitherto? If we take an issue such as HS2, those of us who are close to the English border and the connection at Crewe could be more deeply affected than, say, my hon. Friend the Member for Llanelli (Nia Griffith). Does that...

Business of the House: English Votes on English Laws (2 Jul 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: It is something of an irony that this announcement is made today when the first item of business was the Transport for London Bill. Under the new proposals, who would vote on that? Would my hon. Friend the Member for Llanelli (Nia Griffith)be precluded from doing so while the hon. Member for Morecambe and Lunesdale (David Morris),whose constituency is rather further away, could vote on it?...

[Mr David Crausby in the Chair] — English Votes for English Laws and North Wales (1 Jul 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

[Mr David Crausby in the Chair] — English Votes for English Laws and North Wales (1 Jul 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: Will the hon. Lady give way?

[Mr David Crausby in the Chair] — English Votes for English Laws and North Wales (1 Jul 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: This is an important subject. Does my hon. Friend agree that there are many types of devolution? He talks about English devolution. Once upon a time, I served as a borough councillor in London and I think the emphasis there would be on London-wide devolution, with virtually no interest in English devolution. Does he also agree with his predecessor, the late, great Cledwyn Hughes, who spoke of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Topical Questions (30 Jun 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: The Secretary of State will be aware of the great concern about the Government’s failure to meet export targets. With UK Trade & Investment’s own surveys saying that more than a quarter of businesses reckon that there is no business benefit from UKTI, how does he propose to deal with this problem?

Written Answers — Department for Business, Innovation and Skills: Trade (30 Jun 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, what forecast he has made of the contribution of net trade to GDP in the next four years.

BBC Investment (East and West Midlands) (23 Jun 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Dorries. I thank the hon. Member for Sherwood (Mark Spencer) for securing what has been a passionate and committed debate. I was fascinated as he went through the history and heritage of TV and radio broadcasting in the east and west midlands. I thank all hon. Members who have made speeches and interventions. I thank my hon. Friends...

BBC Investment (East and West Midlands) (23 Jun 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: There are major issues to be looked at, and we believe that that needs to happen in this debate on the BBC charter. It is not a little opt-out alone; the debate is much too important for that. The BBC has recognised that there is a disparity. When Tony Hall become director-general in 2013, he visited the Mailbox and announced additional investment. In particular, the focus on training and...

BBC Investment (East and West Midlands) (23 Jun 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: I do not think that there is time, unfortunately. I would love to, though. A year and a half is not long for an important debate. In recognition of that, the Culture Secretary’s report even floated the option of extending the existing charter for a year. We think that this time the Government should hand their homework in on time. They should not leave it all to the last minute and then...
