Animal Welfare: Easter Adjournment (30 Mar 2017)

I am grateful to him and the mover of the motion, the Chair of the Backbench Business Committee, for the work that they do in facilitating colleagues to raise important matters in the Chamber and in Westminster Hall. They do a very difficult job. Having been to...

Animal Welfare: Easter Adjournment (30 Mar 2017)

Jim Fitzpatrick: Is that the bridge that goes from Gateshead to Newcastle? It is the Gateshead millennium bridge, is that right?

Animal Welfare (30 Mar 2017)

Jim Fitzpatrick: I made reference to the wording of a recommendation, which I have reflected on significantly. It says that the RSPCA “should, however, withdraw from acting”. I understand the hon. Gentleman’s point, and I agree that the CPS should be acting, but does he really think that the CPS will do it if the RSPCA takes a step back?

Animal Welfare (30 Mar 2017)

Jim Fitzpatrick: I am pleased to be able to contribute to the debate and I hope to be able to abide by your eight-minute rule, Madam Deputy Speaker. I am delighted to follow the hon. Member for Tiverton and Honiton (Neil Parish), who chairs our Select Committee with distinction. Obviously his time spent in the European Parliament was not a wasted apprenticeship; he demonstrates his skills every time we meet....

Animal Welfare (30 Mar 2017)

Jim Fitzpatrick: My hon. Friend’s good point reinforces the contribution from the Chair of the Select Committee. I shall say more about licensing in a moment, but it is certainly a key element of the Committee’s report to which we hope the Government will respond positively.

Animal Welfare (30 Mar 2017)

Jim Fitzpatrick: With my classic cockney accent, I hope that I will be forgiven if I do not join the hon. Gentleman in praising the Scottish National party. I think the policy predates the SNP taking over the Scottish Government, but it has continued since. Indeed, the Procurator Fiscal Service carries out that policy, and the CPS should do so here, but my point is that the CPS is not doing it, is not going...

Animal Welfare (30 Mar 2017)

Jim Fitzpatrick: My right hon. Friend makes the point emphatically that the penalty does not fit the crime. As the hon. Member for Tiverton and Honiton mentioned, such penalties need urgent review. I apologise that I will go over my eight minutes, Madam Deputy Speaker, but hopefully by only one and a half minutes. Given that the RSPCA cruelty helpline receives 1 million calls, 15% of which are investigated,...

School Funding (London) — [Mr David Hanson in the Chair] (29 Mar 2017)

Jim Fitzpatrick: I am grateful to the Minister for quoting those statistics. I was quoting one myself from the headteacher of Cubitt Town Junior School, who said that Cubitt Town pupils will lose up to £746 per pupil. I do not doubt that Tower Hamlets’ schools are well resourced and well funded by the Government, but the cuts being introduced will be unsustainable. The headteacher says that it...
