Withdrawal Agreement: Proposed Changes (7 Oct 2019)

Jim Fitzpatrick: As someone who supported Prime Minister May’s deal and wants to support a deal as opposed to no deal, and further to the answer to the hon. Member for North Down (Lady Hermon), may I ask the Minister to reassure me that strenuous efforts are being made in Northern Ireland to recover the support for a deal that seems to have been lost since the DUP changed sides and supported a deal?

Leasehold and Commonhold Reform — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (2 Oct 2019)

Jim Fitzpatrick: I and other Labour Members are grateful to the hon. Gentleman for his generous comments, and I congratulate him on securing the debate. He does not have any support from other Government Members at the moment, whereas Labour Members are mob-handed in Westminster Hall today. However, I can assure him that we are here as his fan club and support structure, because it is the prominent role that...

Building Safety (5 Sep 2019)

Jim Fitzpatrick: Can the Secretary of State say a bit more about his protection board? What kind of people will be on it, how many of them will there be, will they have staff or will they be carrying out inspections themselves, and will they monitor how local authorities spend this £10 million?

Vessel Emissions: River Thames (4 Sep 2019)

Jim Fitzpatrick: I commend my hon. Friend for securing this debate and congratulate him on his campaign to protect his residents against emissions from the Thames. My constituency is right across the Thames from his, and I was happy and proud to support his campaign. He has used the words “we won”, but is it not a shame that we were not able to secure the investment, jobs and all the rest of it to support...

Summer Adjournment (25 Jul 2019)

Jim Fitzpatrick: I am delighted to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Ilford North (Wes Streeting), for whom I have so much respect. I want to raise several issues briefly. The first is electric scooters. There is a Transport for London/Greater London Authority consultation on these illegal items. The Paris Mayor recently tightened regulations, not only because these scooters have been littering the...

Toeic: Overseas Students (24 Jul 2019)

Jim Fitzpatrick: People accused and defamed, detained and deported, visas lost and people left destitute on unsafe allegations on discredited evidence. Yes, there were cheats—nobody is denying that—but many more were innocent. Maybe the reason why so few such cases have become apparent is that most people were not allowed to appeal and very few have been able to get to court. However, some of those who...

20 Years of Devolution: Leasehold Reform (11 Jul 2019)

Jim Fitzpatrick: Does my hon. Friend agree that one of the difficulties now is that though the CMA intervention is very welcome, it is going to take time, and its consultations and engagement just put everything back? It kicks the can down the road in a Parliament where we are not doing an awful lot of legislating.

20 Years of Devolution: Leasehold Reform (11 Jul 2019)

Jim Fitzpatrick: I am grateful for the opportunity to speak briefly in yet another leasehold debate and I am pleased to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Leigh (Jo Platt) in this very well-informed discussion. I thank the Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee for its excellent report. I thank the Leasehold Knowledge Partnership, Martin Boyd and Sebastian O’Kelly for their analysis of the...

Dangerous Driving — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (8 Jul 2019)

Jim Fitzpatrick: I wanted to intervene before the Minister moves away from his general points. I pay due regard to his expertise as a former Solicitor General, to his explanations about complicated interpretation and definitions, and to what he said about the Court of Appeal not accepting what the Government were trying to do. However, given that he accepts that there would be unanimous support for Government...

Dangerous Driving — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (8 Jul 2019)

Jim Fitzpatrick: The Minister mentions the road safety statement, which was welcome and made a difference. It is refreshed occasionally, but that is now overdue by at least six months. The Department for Transport was supposed to produce it, and the reshuffle has delayed it even further. Perhaps he can have a quiet word with his colleague at Transport to find out when it will arrive.

Dangerous Driving — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (8 Jul 2019)

Jim Fitzpatrick: It was due at Easter. It is now summer.

Dangerous Driving — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (8 Jul 2019)

Jim Fitzpatrick: It is a pleasure to see you presiding, Mrs Moon. I am grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the debate. I pay tribute to the petitioners. I thank Brake and the Parliamentary Advisory Council for Transport Safety for their briefings, and I thank the Petitions Committee for facilitating the debate. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Warrington North (Helen Jones) for her excellent...

Dangerous Driving — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (8 Jul 2019)

Jim Fitzpatrick: The hon. Gentleman makes an appropriate point. Individual drivers have personal responsibility: when they get medication, they need to ensure that it does not impair their judgment and that they are not a risk to others on the road. Pharmaceutical companies have a role in that, because they should be printing large warning labels on medication to say: “Do you know this means you are not fit...

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

Jim Fitzpatrick: I am grateful for the opportunity to contribute to this debate; I thank the Backbench Business Committee for the time, and congratulate the hon. Member for Grantham and Stamford (Nick Boles) and the right hon. Member for North Norfolk (Norman Lamb) on securing it. I am also pleased to follow the hon. Member for Edinburgh West (Christine Jardine). My starting point is the last debate on...

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

Jim Fitzpatrick: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Backbench Business - Whistleblowingbackbench Business (3 Jul 2019)

Jim Fitzpatrick: I am grateful for the opportunity to speak briefly in this debate. I congratulate the right hon. Member for North Norfolk (Norman Lamb) on helping to secure it in time generously allocated by the Backbench Business Committee. I am pleased to follow the hon. Member for Thirsk and Malton (Kevin Hollinrake), who—along with so many other colleagues present—has worked so hard to ensure that...

Recall of Tumble Dryers (17 Jun 2019)

Jim Fitzpatrick: The Whirlpool situation has highlighted a problem exposed by the Electrical Safety Council about the difficulty of identifying the owners of the defective appliances it recalls. Can the Minister say a little more about what progress has been made on requiring the registration of purchase of electrical goods at point of sale by the retailer, rather than by consumers registering afterwards?...

Violent Crime (17 Jun 2019)

Jim Fitzpatrick: (Urgent Question): To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on what the Government are doing to protect people from violent crime.

Violent Crime (17 Jun 2019)

Jim Fitzpatrick: I am grateful to the Minister for her response and I share her opening sentiments. There have been four murders in London in four days, with two murders in my constituency in two weeks. I commend Tower Hamlets police for early arrests in both incidents. Londoners do not want to see politicians scoring points and/or playing party politics; they want answers and they want action. Clearly,...
