Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (18 Jan 2018)

John Grogan: Do Virgin East Coast’s franchise promises to run trains every two hours from London to Bradford, Harrogate and Middlesbrough still hold good, or have they been scaled back?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Royal Air Force: Pilots (15 Jan 2018)

John Grogan: How many pilots have applied to leave the Royal Air Force in each of the last three years.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Royal Air Force: Pilots (15 Jan 2018)

John Grogan: Does the Minister agree that the RAF needs to do everything possible to retain its experienced pilots, particularly in the light of competition from the civil sector? Will he look at the case of 100 experienced pilots who have been disadvantaged in relation to their peers by the latest change to pay and conditions?

NHS Winter Crisis: Rail Franchising (10 Jan 2018)

John Grogan: Bearing in mind the strictures of the hon. Member for North East Derbyshire (Lee Rowley), I will try not to be too stale in my three minutes. We have heard a lot about the implications of the potential loss of £2 billion in premium payments following the premature ending of the east coast franchise. We have not yet heard what will happen to the promises made by Mr Branson and Mr Souter...

Yorkshire Devolution (9 Jan 2018)

John Grogan: Will the Minister give way?

Yorkshire Devolution (9 Jan 2018)

John Grogan: I am looking at the occupants of the two Front Benches, and never have two proud sons of Lancashire had more opportunity to do something for God’s own county. I have three very quick points. The letter from the Secretary of State before Christmas was very significant, because for the first time the phrase “one Yorkshire devolution” was used in a ministerial letter. I have...

Christmas Adjournment (21 Dec 2017)

John Grogan: It is a great pleasure to follow the wide-ranging speech of the hon. Member for Harrow East (Bob Blackman). He mentioned the Christmas No. 1, among other things, and I just want to mention three things that all have a Christmas link. The first is the near-complete absence of trains on Boxing day in the United Kingdom outside Scotland. This situation does not exist in the rest of Europe,...

Ukraine — [Mrs Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (20 Dec 2017)

John Grogan: I will make four points in about two and a half minutes. I have heard every word of this debate, Mrs Gillan. I would not miss the introductory oration of the right hon. Member for Maldon (Mr Whittingdale); one of the best things I have done in Parliament was to introduce him to Ukraine some years ago. We heard about the diaspora and the Ukrainian athletes. As the grandson of an Irish migrant...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Public Services: West Midlands (6 Dec 2017)

John Grogan: Will the Prime Minister support new trans-Pennine rail links, namely High Speed 3, and also the restoration of the Skipton-Colne link, which, as well as providing an economic boost to Pennine towns, has the additional merit of starting in the constituency of the Government Chief Whip, the right hon. Member for Skipton and Ripon (Julian Smith)?

Industrial Strategy (27 Nov 2017)

John Grogan: Given the important chapter in “Industrial Strategy” about devolution, will the Secretary of State agree to meet the 17 council leaders in Yorkshire from all parties who are advocating a “one Yorkshire” devolution settlement, so they can work in partnership with the Government to deliver an effective industrial strategy for the county?

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (16 Nov 2017)

John Grogan: Will Ministers look at the situation whereby the 2018 winter Olympics would in their entirety be a listed event, with the expectation that they would be shown on live free-to-air TV, as before, in their entirety? In fact, most of the live coverage will be on Discovery’s Eurosport without, as yet, any reference to Ofcom.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: NHS Trusts: Subsidiary Companies (14 Nov 2017)

John Grogan: How many subsidiary companies have been set up by NHS trusts.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: NHS Trusts: Subsidiary Companies (14 Nov 2017)

John Grogan: Does the Minister share my concern that NHS trusts in Yorkshire are now lining up to follow the example of Airedale NHS Foundation Trust, which recently, behind closed doors and as part of a VAT scam, set up a subsidiary company to run many of its activities, which will not only cost the Treasury in lost tax receipts, but mean that new staff, such as hospital porters, will no longer be on NHS...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Parkinson’s Disease: Personal Independence Payment (13 Nov 2017)

John Grogan: What proportion of people with Parkinson’s disease who were receiving disability living allowance were not granted a personal independence payment.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Parkinson’s Disease: Personal Independence Payment (13 Nov 2017)

John Grogan: Would it not save a lot of time, money and distress if all those on the higher rate of disability living allowance with degenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s were transferred automatically on to personal independence payment? How many people with Parkinson’s are currently in the “no review” category?

Backbench Business: HMRC Closures — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (2 Nov 2017)

John Grogan: The Minister is being extraordinarily generous in giving way. Is he not at all concerned about crowding out private sector investment in some of the big cities? To follow on from the powerful speech of my hon. Friend the Member for Oldham West and Royton (Jim McMahon), is the Minister not in danger of putting himself on the side of big city United Kingdom and ignoring smaller towns and...

Backbench Business: HMRC Closures — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (2 Nov 2017)

John Grogan: I want to make one central point, which is to do with the eight location principles that the Revenue used to decide where the regional hubs should go. All of the proposed regional hubs will be in big, successful cities, such as Leeds, Glasgow, Birmingham and Cardiff. One could argue that, in those cities, a big HMRC office will crowd out private investment. Alternative choices would have been...

Backbench Business: HMRC Closures — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (2 Nov 2017)

John Grogan: That was going to be my next central point. It seems very negligent that such social and economic impact assessments have not been carried out. It is no secret that one of the long-standing offices is in your constituency of Shipley, Mr Davies, which neighbours my constituency of Keighley. When we met the bosses of the Revenue, we were shocked that no such assessment had been made.

Backbench Business: HMRC Closures — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (2 Nov 2017)

John Grogan: I have studied the eight points carefully, and there does not seem to be any rural proofing, which one would expect of this exercise. There is a relatively new boss at HMRC. It will be interesting to see how much the Government will own this process and how much they will say that it is all to do with HMRC. I think the call for a moratorium is very reasonable, as it would allow us to go back...
