Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill (20 Oct 2017)

David Hanson: As my hon. Friend will know, not only have attacks on police officers risen by about 7% in the past seven years, but those attacks are on fewer police officers. We have lost 20,000 police officers, so there is now more chance of a police officer being attacked than there was seven years ago.

David Hanson: What steps the Government are taking to increase long-term support for Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh.

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Rohingya Refugees (Bangladesh) (18 Oct 2017)

David Hanson: I accept that the UK is the largest bilateral donor, but the Secretary of State will know there is a United Nations conference on the issue next week. Will she clarify today the UK Government’s objectives at that conference? How will she put pressure on other countries to step up to the plate, too?

Iran: Vauxhall (Redundancies) (16 Oct 2017)

David Hanson: Over 450 of the people who work at Ellesmere Port live on the Welsh side of the border, only 12 miles away. I am pleased that the Minister has said that she is meeting with the Cabinet Secretary for Economy and Infrastructure in Wales, Ken Skates, to discuss that. Will she give a commitment today to ensure that he is involved in discussions about the three big issues, which are cost, the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Asset Recovery Programme (16 Oct 2017)

David Hanson: Can the Minister assure me that we will retain the European arrest warrant, retain co-operation with other European police forces and use all the powers we have in Europe, as well as in the United Kingdom, to bring such assets to justice?

Prisons Policy/HMP Long Lartin (12 Oct 2017)

David Hanson: Two of the three murders in the prison system last year were at Long Lartin. Last week, two individuals were convicted of the murder of a prisoner committed in June in Long Lartin. In the last four years, there have been four murders in Long Lartin. Why does Long Lartin seem to have more murders than any other prison in the country?

International Trade: Topical Questions (12 Oct 2017)

David Hanson: Many businesses in my constituency, particularly sheep and dairy farmers, are signing contracts early in the new year for exports in 2019. What certainty can the Secretary of State give them about pricing for 2019?

Women and Equalities: Gender Pay Gap (12 Oct 2017)

David Hanson: What steps the Government are taking to tackle the gender pay gap.

Women and Equalities: Gender Pay Gap (12 Oct 2017)

David Hanson: The gender pay gap remains as high as 34% in the east midlands. In my region in Wales, it is now 18%. That is largely due to the efforts of the Welsh Assembly Government in trying to support organisations in Wales, funded by the European social fund. What assessment has the Minister made of the use of that fund to help to close the gender pay gap? Will she examine this, to replicate it...

Aggressive Antisocial Behaviour — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (10 Oct 2017)

David Hanson: On that point about protecting the budget, can the Minister say how much of that is central Government funding and how much of it is allowing local precepts to be raised?

Aggressive Antisocial Behaviour — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (10 Oct 2017)

David Hanson: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Selly Oak (Steve McCabe) on an excellent contribution and summary of some of the concerns relating to aggressive antisocial behaviour. I want to start by saying very firmly that the police are trying to do a good job and want to reduce antisocial behaviour as much as my hon. Friend and other Members who have spoken do. However, the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Pension Arrangements for Women (9 Oct 2017)

David Hanson: What recent discussions he has had with the Chancellor of the Exchequer on improving pension transition arrangements for women born in the 1950s.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Pension Arrangements for Women (9 Oct 2017)

David Hanson: My hon. Friend the Member for Swansea East (Carolyn Harris) and I, Members of the Minister’s own party, and all Opposition parties in this House, including the Democratic Unionist party, have introduced a Bill, to be debated on 27 April, to provide for transitional arrangements to be put in place. Will the Minister support the Bill? If not, will he tell the House why not?

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Inward Tourism (14 Sep 2017)

David Hanson: North Wales has been identified as one of the places to go to in the world this year, and with Chester on our doorstep and Liverpool close by, we are a tourist destination of choice. When can the Minister give certainty about visas, or the potential for visas, for European Union citizens post the EU exit, because we service Ireland and we have many visitors from the mainland EU?

16-to-19 Education Funding — [David Hanson in the Chair] (7 Sep 2017)

David Hanson: Before I call the Minister to respond to the debate, I remind her to leave, if possible, one minute at the end for the hon. Member for Scunthorpe (Nic Dakin) to sum up.

16-to-19 Education Funding — [David Hanson in the Chair] (7 Sep 2017)

David Hanson: It’s a miracle; everyone got in.

16-to-19 Education Funding — [David Hanson in the Chair] (7 Sep 2017)

David Hanson: I am going to have to impose a limit of three minutes for the moment, which should just about get everybody in before the Front-Bench spokespeople begin their deliberations.

16-to-19 Education Funding — [David Hanson in the Chair] (7 Sep 2017)

David Hanson: Order. I am going to call Norman Lamb next, but self-evidently a number of hon. Members wish to speak. To get them in, I will have to impose a time limit, which I will announce after Norman Lamb has spoken. The hon. Member for Glasgow North West (Carol Monaghan) has graciously said that she will cut short her remarks, so I intend the Front-Bench speeches to start at five past 4, and I ask...

16-to-19 Education Funding — [David Hanson in the Chair] (7 Sep 2017)

David Hanson: Order. Self-evidently Mr Dakin’s debate has given me a challenge. At least 13 Members want to speak; I must call the Scottish National party spokesperson at 4 pm, and there are the Labour party spokesperson and the Minister to get in, so there is a limited time. Given the enormous Opposition interest, I think that Opposition Members in particular will have to restrain their comments...

Blacklisting (5 Sep 2017)

David Hanson: I will just make a couple of very quick comments. I did not intend to speak in detail, but given that there is time, I will. I happen to be the Member of Parliament for six members of the Shrewsbury 24. I know, even today, how they live with the consequences of that blacklisting. One of my constituents has been the Labour mayor of the town I live in, has been a Labour councillor and sat on...
