Increasing Choice for Rail Passengers (11 Jul 2018)

John Grogan: I stand corrected and admonished, Mrs Moon. The quality of the debate inspired me to make a contribution. I consider myself to be a democratic socialist and also a great believer in competition, and I do not necessarily see a contradiction between the two. One good thing that came from the Railways Act 1993 and the privatisation of the railways was the creation of open access operators. I...

Listed Sporting Events — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (11 Jul 2018)

John Grogan: I beg to move, That this House has considered listed sporting events. We are less than three hours away from the big match live and free on ITV: England versus Croatia. The nation’s favourite commercial channel, BAFTA-winning for its sport production, is said to expect up to 30 million people to watch that match tonight. Some superstitious English fans would say that England rarely win...

John Grogan: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon), who is a fellow member of the Select Committee on Northern Ireland Affairs. He made a typically extensive and interesting speech. There are three reasons why I am delighted to take part in the debate, Mr Betts. The first is the fact that you, a fellow Yorkshireman, are in the Chair. The second is that today we are...

Backbench Business: UK-Romanian Relations — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (19 Jun 2018)

John Grogan: That is a minor detail, but yes. The third reason is that the debate was secured by the hon. Member for Harrow East (Bob Blackman), who led our delegation to Romania with great diplomacy and distinction. It was a good group—we had two Scottish nationalists, one Labour Member and one Conservative Member. We were not quite representative of the nation, but he led us very ably and I...

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

Brexit: Trade in Food — [James Gray in the Chair] (14 Jun 2018)

We made a specific recommendation on Northern Ireland, as any change in trade arrangements could be more disruptive there than anywhere...

Airports National Policy Statement — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (7 Jun 2018)

John Grogan: It is a great pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Hammersmith (Andy Slaughter), who gave a typically thoughtful and forensic speech.

Airports National Policy Statement — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (7 Jun 2018)

John Grogan: It is almost like the right hon. Lady, who is a fellow Yorkshire-born Member, and I co-operated, because I have a quote from said gentleman—Gordon Dewar.
