Business of the House (21 Jun 2018)

John Hayes: It is a delusion of Whiggish modernists that they know the worst of mankind has been consigned to the past. Cicero said, “Know thyself,” and in our time in this place, some local authorities are holding what have been dubbed “Dickensian” paupers’ funerals. The relatives of the deceased are banned from them. They are even prohibited from receiving their loved...

NHS Long-Term Plan: Acquired Brain Injury (18 Jun 2018)

John Hayes: As a non-socialist and member of the party of Wilberforce, Shaftesbury and Disraeli, I believe in social justice, too. The key thing that the hon. Gentleman has said, as did the hon. Member for Washington and Sunderland West (Mrs Hodgson), is that we have to get teachers to be more aware of this. If one thing comes out of this debate, it should be exactly that. We need to co-ordinate across...

NHS Long-Term Plan: Acquired Brain Injury (18 Jun 2018)

John Hayes: This will be my last contribution because I know that others want to get in. The change in a person’s cognitive function, which is often perceived as a change in their ability to do things, is often also about them knowing how to do things, what to do, when to do it and why. That is different from losing a skill. It is about losing the ability to order things and to prioritise them, and...

NHS Long-Term Plan: Acquired Brain Injury (18 Jun 2018)

John Hayes: I do not make a habit of exorcising personal demons in this Chamber and I am not going to start now, but we are all shaped, and are certainly affected, when we are shocked by what we see, perhaps in our constituents or other people, and so it was almost 40 years ago when I was in hospital and in the bed next to me was a young man, I suppose in his 20s or 30s, surrounded by a...

Backbench Business - Windrush: 70TH Anniversarybackbench Business (14 Jun 2018)

John Hayes: Earlier I mentioned the British Caribbean Association, with which a number of Members will be familiar. The association was formed following those riots in Notting Hill in the year of my birth, and it was formed precisely to foster good relations between the indigenous people and those incoming people—people with very much the values the right hon. Member for Hackney North and Stoke...

Backbench Business - Windrush: 70TH Anniversarybackbench Business (14 Jun 2018)

John Hayes: I am in an embarrassing position because I am having, for the second time in a week, to wholeheartedly and enthusiastically agree with everything that the right hon. Lady says—it is doing me no favours on these Benches, I can tell you. She is absolutely perfectly right about that combination. What she just described is one of the most profound things I have heard in this debate, leaving...

Backbench Business - Windrush: 70TH Anniversarybackbench Business (14 Jun 2018)

John Hayes: Inasmuch as we can gauge what different groups of the population feel about EU migration and the open borders we have endured with the European Union, the evidence suggests that minority communities—black and Asian Britons—feel just as strongly about this as white Britons. They do not take a more, as she put it, “liberal” view—I always use that term...

Backbench Business - Windrush: 70TH Anniversarybackbench Business (14 Jun 2018)

John Hayes: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Backbench Business - Windrush: 70TH Anniversarybackbench Business (14 Jun 2018)

John Hayes: The last point that the hon. Gentleman made is, in a sense, the most profound. It is about not where we come from, but the shared identity that we enjoy when we are here. The Windrush generation in particular were deeply patriotic, and remain so. These were people who were actually proud of Britain’s history. Of course, they understood that it was a mixed history, but they were proud of...

Backbench Business - Windrush: 70TH Anniversarybackbench Business (14 Jun 2018)

John Hayes: I think the hon. Gentleman needs to be clear that the people I described earlier—those patriots who called their children Milton, Winston, Gladstone and so on—take a very similar view of illegal migration, because they took the trouble to come here on an entirely proper basis. Outrage is felt by people in this House and others on behalf of the Windrush generation because they were...

Business of the House (14 Jun 2018)

John Hayes: The Leader of the House has previously met my requests for debates on acquired brain injury and on knife crime and encouraged me in my campaign for nuclear test veterans, so mindful of my earlier question on Network Rail felling trees, may I turn her attention to the local authorities that, irrespective of emissions, in Newcastle, Edinburgh and Sheffield are felling thousands of trees, and...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

John Hayes: Will my hon. and learned Friend give way?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

John Hayes: Will the Solicitor General give way?

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill (11 Jun 2018)

John Hayes: Terrorism blights lives and in some cases, of course, it takes lives. We have already heard from Members on both sides of the House about the appalling events of the last year, and they will be in all our minds as we debate these measures. The right hon. Member for Hackney North and Stoke Newington (Ms Abbott) was right to focus on the events in Manchester, not because any terrorist event is...

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill (11 Jun 2018)

John Hayes: Yes, that did happen, but I would go as far as to say—reflecting what Andrew Parker said—that the scale of what we now face and its character is unprecedented in modern times. I am cautious about being too definitive about these things, because it is never wise to be so, but I defer to the man who runs MI5, who is closest to these matters. I think that we are facing new challenges...
