The Economy (24 Oct 2019)

Richard Burden: Last week, union representatives from Rolls-Royce came to see my hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Erdington (Jack Dromey) and me. Rolls-Royce is one of the main anchors of the UK’s aerospace sector and has operations in no less than nine EU member states. They came to tell us about their worries, the most direct and immediate being the disastrous impact that a no-deal Brexit would...

British Children: Syria (22 Oct 2019)

Richard Burden: The Minister has acknowledged that there is absolutely no time to lose. The current ceasefire presents a window of opportunity to move on these repatriations, but does the Minister accept that access to the two camps where the majority of UK national children are living was possible, as was repatriation, before the ceasefire and is likely to be possible for a little while afterwards? I...

Will he support the call for an independent...

Prime Minister's Update (25 Sep 2019)

Richard Burden: May I say to the Prime Minister that something that really disturbs me about how he is conducting himself tonight and about how some of his colleagues have conducted themselves in recent days has been the sense of privileged entitlement that they have exuded throughout? That privileged entitlement led him, during this statement, to describe it as “humbug” when an hon. Member talked about...

Brexit Readiness: Operation Yellowhammer (25 Sep 2019)

Richard Burden: The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster may recall that the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, representing the UK auto industry, described the prospect of a no-deal Brexit as an “existential threat” to their sector.

Exiting the European Union: Exports: No Deal ( 5 Sep 2019)

What would his response be to Rod McKenzie of the Road Haulage Association, who only this week said this of his experience of Ministers in relation to what he describes as the “clear and present” threat of no deal: “What we need is action, and we need action...

Local Housing Allowance and Homelessness — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (24 Jul 2019)

Richard Burden: I join the hon. Gentleman in paying tribute to the work of YMCA. However, given that 12,000 households are on Birmingham’s housing waiting list and 2,500 households are in temporary accommodation, does he feel that the first priority that the Mayor set for himself is being achieved?

Local Housing Allowance and Homelessness — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (24 Jul 2019)

Richard Burden: But it’s getting worse.

Local Housing Allowance and Homelessness — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (24 Jul 2019)

Richard Burden: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this important debate. Does he agree that Shelter’s figures provide an even starker illustration than the picture he paints?

That indicates...

Sale of New Petrol and Diesel Cars and Vans ( 4 Jul 2019)

Richard Burden: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Eddisbury (Antoinette Sandbach). I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Hove (Peter Kyle) on securing this debate and commend him on what he said about the experience of driving an electric vehicle. He is also right that ambitious targets are important if road transport is to make the contribution it needs to if we are to achieve net zero...

Transport Committee ( 4 Jul 2019)

Richard Burden: I congratulate my hon. Friend on the comprehensive way that she laid out the scale of the pothole epidemic currently facing local authorities. What she said is underlined by a survey from the Asphalt Industry Alliance, which noted that the number of potholes filled by local authorities fell from just over 16,000 per local authority in 2012-13, to just over 15,000 last year. Does that not...

Petition - Closure of Heywood Crown Post Office: Parental Involvement in Teaching: Equality Act (25 Jun 2019)

Richard Burden: It is a privilege to follow so many moving and powerful speeches. I did not come to the Chamber intending to make a speech; I had hoped to ask my hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Hall Green (Mr Godsiff) a couple of questions, but having heard what he said, I was moved to rise to make just a few points. My hon. Friend sought to characterise what has been happening outside Anderton Park...

Modern Slavery Act: Independent Review: Railway Connectivity: East to West Midlands (19 Jun 2019)

Richard Burden: My hon. Friend is making an excellent speech, that is as important to the west midlands as it is to the east midlands. Does he agree that the midlands rail hub project has absolutely massive potential? It has been estimated that it could free up another 6 million passenger journeys and around 36 extra freight paths by linking up the east and west midlands in the way that is needed. If that is...
