John Cryer: Further to the questions about Kashmir, we are talking about two states with nuclear arms possibly edging towards a conflict, and we should all take that seriously.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (9 Oct 2017)

John Cryer: I would invite the Employment Minister to visit my local jobcentre, but he is busy circumventing his own criteria to shut it down. In view of the problems with universal credit, why does he not revisit those decisions, keep jobcentres open and stop forcing some of the most vulnerable people to travel for hours just to get the benefits that they are entitled to?

John Cryer: My right hon. Friend the Member for Leeds Central (Hilary Benn) pointed out that 30% of applications for permanent residence are turned down, to a large extent because of the complexities of the process.

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Topical Questions (7 Mar 2017)

Oral Answers to Questions — Electoral Commission Committee: Business of the House (2 Mar 2017)

John Cryer: I would like to add to the tributes to Gerald Kaufman, who was a friend of mine for very many years. As has been said, he was elected in 1970—at the same election as my hon. Friend the Member for Bolsover (Mr Skinner)—and was one of that generation of MPs who did not get to the Cabinet. He was in the wrong place at the wrong time. He was a Minister of State in 1979 when Labour...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (20 Feb 2017)

John Cryer: Leytonstone jobcentre, in my constituency, is threatened with closure, which has spread alarm and despondency among some of the most vulnerable people whom I represent. The nearest jobcentre, in Walthamstow, is more than 3 miles away, which breaks the Minister’s own guidelines. Will he undertake a proper impact assessment and publish the results?

Jobcentre Plus Offices: Closure (30 Jan 2017)

John Cryer: Leytonstone jobcentre, which is bang in the middle of my constituency, is due to close. I deal with vulnerable people week in, week out for whom that centre is highly important.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (9 Jan 2017)

John Cryer: Indicators of child poverty are important, as the Secretary of State said earlier, but so are targets. Will he therefore agree to adopt the provisions in the Bill presented by my hon. Friend the Member for Barnsley Central (Dan Jarvis), which would establish statutory targets for the reduction of child poverty?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Prison Officers (6 Dec 2016)

John Cryer: It is not just the cut of 7,000 prison officers, which my right hon. Friend the Member for Rother Valley (Sir Kevin Barron) talked about; another 7,000 non-officer grades are also being cut. That is a total cut of 14,000 staff—2,000 is a drop in the ocean. That is why people are getting hurt and killed in Britain’s prisons. When will the Secretary of State return staffing to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (28 Nov 2016)

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (15 Nov 2016)

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Nursery Schools (14 Nov 2016)

NHS Funding (31 Oct 2016)

John Cryer: Can the Secretary of State guarantee that every A&E department in north-east London, with a rapidly rising population, will remain open for the rest of this Parliament? If he cannot guarantee that, how many will close and which ones? What is his hit list?
