Immigration: Pausing the Hostile Environment (12 Jul 2018)

Clive Efford: If the Government are not trying to avoid setting up a hardship fund, why the delay?

Eu: Future Relationship White Paper (12 Jul 2018)

Clive Efford: The White Paper clearly envisages a role for the ECJ in perpetuity, for instance in relation to trade disputes. Has the Secretary of State had any indication from the EU that it is prepared to participate in the arbitration process proposed in this White Paper and second-guess ECJ decisions?

Govia Thameslink/Rail Electrification (3 Jul 2018)

Clive Efford: Govia is also responsible for Southeastern. As the Minister will know from just a glance at Twitter this morning, our constituents were telling us yet again that they were suffering delays. Why do the Government consistently put the shareholders of Govia above the interests of our constituents? It is time for both franchises to be taken away from Govia.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (3 Jul 2018)

Clive Efford: Is it possible to provide the funding that our NHS needs and at the same time keep to the reckless tax cuts that the Government announced in their manifesto last year?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: PIP: Early Assessments (2 Jul 2018)

Clive Efford: What criteria her Department uses to recall people in receipt of personal independence payments for an early assessment.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: PIP: Early Assessments (2 Jul 2018)

Clive Efford: I am grateful to the Minister for that answer, but I have constituents whose conditions are not going to improve, and one of my constituents has been called back for early assessment three times in three years, causing her a great deal of stress. If people have conditions that are not going to improve, does it not make sense to give them the benefit for longer and not reassess them so regularly?

Football: Safe Standing — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (25 Jun 2018)

Clive Efford: I associate myself with the comments made earlier. The Minister is a passionate supporter of Tottenham and dedicated to football, and I know that she is passionate about it. I am sure that we all oppose those who have attacked her on social media. Does she agree that football clubs need to report where injuries are taking place within their grounds? If they are in locations where people are...

Football: Safe Standing — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (25 Jun 2018)

Clive Efford: I’ll have another go.

Football: Safe Standing — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (25 Jun 2018)

Clive Efford: Thank you, Ms McDonagh. I think this is the first time I have spoken in a debate with you in the Chair, so it is a pleasure to see you in your place. In this debate, we must listen to fans, because the fans we are talking about are those who commit themselves passionately to their club. They give up their time, go to the matches and create the atmosphere in the grounds that make football in...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Football Grounds: Safe Standing Areas (21 Jun 2018)

Clive Efford: Only a few weeks ago, my hon. Friend the Member for Tooting (Dr Allin-Khan) held a meeting in the House with over 30 football supporters’ clubs, all of which unanimously called for the Government to listen to fans and introduce safe standing. Will the Government finally listen?

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (21 Jun 2018)

Clive Efford: Fewer than 2% of people who have a problem with gambling receive help, yet this industry is worth £13.8 billion and only £10 million of it went into helping them. Is it not time for a levy?

Confidence in the Secretary of State for Transport (19 Jun 2018)

Clive Efford: The Minister says that, but why is Govia being allowed to re-bid for franchises or to bid for others?

Confidence in the Secretary of State for Transport (19 Jun 2018)

Clive Efford: I wholeheartedly support the motion because somebody has to take responsibility for what is happening to my constituents who use the trains on a daily basis. This Government have history in terms of how they have treated my constituents. They interfered with the Thameslink project when they first got their hands on the Department for Transport, taking the Blackfriars Thameslink trains away...

Confidence in the Secretary of State for Transport (19 Jun 2018)

Clive Efford: Absolutely; someone has to take responsibility. When my constituents were told they had to suffer this disruption, they accepted that, because a major refurbishment was taking place, but they were told that things would improve when the services were restored. They are now told that they will have fewer central London destinations to choose from because, apparently, it is very difficult to...

Confidence in the Secretary of State for Transport (19 Jun 2018)

Clive Efford: I agree with my hon. Friend that the Secretary of State has to take responsibility. That is why I fully support the motion. The Secretary of State really exposed himself by putting his particularly dogmatic approach to the franchise system ahead of the interests of passengers in a letter that he wrote on 24 April 2013 to the present Foreign Secretary when he was Mayor of London. His letter...

Confidence in the Secretary of State for Transport (19 Jun 2018)

Clive Efford: That is absolutely right. This is the first time that the right hon. Gentleman has got caught when everything has come home to roost while he is still in position. Usually he moves on and someone else has to sort out his problems—for example, by allowing prisoners to have books. My constituents deserve a better service. Their services are being cut and they will have a reduced choice...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (18 Jun 2018)

Clive Efford: The discussions about any increase in funds for the NHS have been well publicised, but it is shocking that there is no extra money for social care. Was the Secretary of State aware that those discussions were taking place, and did he make any representations to increase funding for social care?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

Clive Efford: It is now clear that “no deal” is the worst possible outcome for our country, and the vast majority of Members understand that. The Bill provides an opportunity for the House to stamp its authority on how the Government approach the future negotiations. I will be voting for amendment (a) to Lords amendment 51, tabled by my right hon. Friend the Leader of the Opposition, and not...
