Backbench Business: Leaving the EU: NHS (22 Mar 2018)

John Grogan: Looking to the future, doctors from outside the EU are currently subject to a strict regime, and at the moment the demand for sponsorship certificates showing that an NHS trust wants to employ a doctor seems to exceed the supply. Will doctors from the EU who want to come to our country post Brexit be subject to the same regime, or does the Minister envisage a different regime? What...

Backbench Business: Leaving the EU: NHS (22 Mar 2018)

John Grogan: Since the Minister has gone in that direction, I ask him again specifically: if it is such a good idea, would it be a good idea for NHS trusts that propose setting up subsidiary companies to publish their business plans so we can see what is happening with that public money?

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Communications Act 2003: Public Service Broadcasters (22 Mar 2018)

John Grogan: Whether he has made an assessment of the potential merits of extending the provisions of the Communications Act 2003 to give greater prominence to public service broadcasters; and if he will make a statement.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Communications Act 2003: Public Service Broadcasters (22 Mar 2018)

John Grogan: As one who somewhat unexpectedly returned to the House last June, I too want to thank all those who protect us on a daily basis to enable us to do our own job of giving voice to our constituents in the Chamber. Does the Minister agree that Parliament needs to give updated powers to Ofcom so that it can ensure that public service content, such as “Newsround” on CBBC, is easier to...

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (20 Mar 2018)

John Grogan: With a significant amount of public money at stake, should not NHS trusts that are proposing to set up subsidiary companies publish their full business cases?

Integrated Communities (14 Mar 2018)

John Grogan: As an MP for Bradford, I enthusiastically welcome this statement. I invite the Secretary of State to Keighley, which is the jewel in the crown of Bradford, to view progress at a later date. A day’s notice will be fine. Does he agree that it is particularly important that parents in Keighley and Bradford can speak English so that they can guide their children at school, and in their...

NHS Wholly Owned Subsidiary Companies — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (6 Mar 2018)

John Grogan: Will the Minister give way?

NHS Wholly Owned Subsidiary Companies — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (6 Mar 2018)

John Grogan: The Minister is being very generous. Clearly there is a substantial difference of view here, but would he agree that given that public money is involved, it is very much in the public interest that the business plans that the trusts are producing for the wholly owned subsidiaries are published and public, so that they can be scrutinised? In the case of the Airedale trust in my constituency,...

Bill Presented: Data Protection Bill [Lords] (5 Mar 2018)

John Grogan: It is a great pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Walsall North (Eddie Hughes), who characteristically speaks with great clarity without notes, but I shall take inspiration from the hon. Member for North Herefordshire (Bill Wiggin), the first Back Bencher to speak in this debate, in that I will take a slightly different view from my Front-Bench colleagues on a couple of issues. In...

Bill Presented: Data Protection Bill [Lords] (5 Mar 2018)

John Grogan: Investigative journalism is one of the things that makes me proud to be British. When I was previously an MP, I was lucky enough to be vice-chairman of the all-party parliamentary National Union of Journalists group. At that time, the group had only two other officers that I can remember: my right hon. Friends the Members for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) and for Hayes and Harlington (John...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (28 Feb 2018)

John Grogan: If she will list her official engagements for Wednesday 28 February.

UK Basketball — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (20 Feb 2018)

John Grogan: Does the Minister agree that the BBC coverage has been valuable? Whereas on YouTube people watch for three or four seconds, I understand that on the BBC it is 15 to 20 minutes. Whatever happens in the future, that has been of some value.

UK Basketball — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (20 Feb 2018)

John Grogan: It is a great pleasure to take part in this debate, which was introduced with such energy, enthusiasm and expertise by my constituency neighbour and good friend, my hon. Friend the Member for Leeds North West (Alex Sobel). In the few minutes available, I would like to address the history of basketball, the implications for its future, and the issue of broadcasting. As several hon. Members...

Housing, Planning and the Green Belt (6 Feb 2018)

John Grogan: In support of the hon. Gentleman’s argument, does he think it significant that the Campaign to Protect Rural England estimates that just over 10% of all the houses built on the green belt since 2009 are actually affordable?

Public Transport: Boxing Day 2018 (24 Jan 2018)

John Grogan: I beg to move, That this House has considered public transport on Boxing Day 2018. Christmas 2017 is already a distant memory for most of us, with all the joys of Christmas and some of the minor irritations such as our football team losing, which happened to me in the case of Bradford City, or the turkey going in slightly late, which happened at my family gathering. But there were also other...

Public Transport: Boxing Day 2018 (24 Jan 2018)

John Grogan: It gives me great pleasure to give way to the chair of the all-party rail group, no less.

Public Transport: Boxing Day 2018 (24 Jan 2018)

John Grogan: I accept that the spirit of enterprise should be there, and I have some good news for the hon. Gentleman before I sit down. I will certainly take up the his invitation—it will be one of the highlights of my parliamentary year to come to such an august body. I do not want to adopt a particularly party political approach, but I would make a gentle reflection to both...

Public Transport: Boxing Day 2018 (24 Jan 2018)

John Grogan: I agree with the hon. Member for Moray (Douglas Ross). We have to provide a quality service such that people know when the trains are running and that they will be of good quality. We cannot run a ramshackle service, because people will not use it. My worry would be that someone would say, “Why are we running these services at all?” as happened south of the border in 1980. As I...

Public Transport: Boxing Day 2018 (24 Jan 2018)

John Grogan: They will, and the seaside in winter is particularly attractive. I end by saying that I have every hope that both Front-Bench teams will get behind the idea of Boxing day transport. Devolution will help. This is one way of ensuring that the northern powerhouse in particular—obviously, I am concerned for the rest of the country as well—is powered for one extra day a year.

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?
