Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

Kelvin Hopkins: I do not believe that a third runway at Heathrow is necessary or desirable, for all the reasons that have been set out so powerfully by other Members. I shall certainly vote against Heathrow expansion tonight. I entered the Chamber totally opposed to it, and what I have heard has convinced me that it is an absolute and total nonsense, I do not wish to be wholly negative about the need for...

Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

Kelvin Hopkins: I thank my hon. Friend for making that powerful point. There is massive extra capacity at Birmingham, and that seems likely to expand in the future. There is a railway station actually in the airport, linked via Leamington Spa to the main Great Western line. It is not a remote parkway station, but can provide direct rail travel right into the airport, much as happens at Gatwick. With 125-mph...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Children’s Academic and Practical Skills (25 Jun 2018)

Kelvin Hopkins: The two colleges serving my own constituents are both suffering severe financial pressures. My hon. Friend the Member for Huddersfield is absolutely right: further education is fundamental to providing ongoing education in both practical and academic skills. When are the Government going to look at FE in general and particularly at the two colleges serving my constituency?

ME: Treatment and Research — [Mr Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (21 Jun 2018)

Kelvin Hopkins: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Rosindell. May I first say how moving and graphic the speech from the hon. Member for Stirling (Stephen Kerr) was? I am so pleased that I was here to hear it. I shall speak briefly because much of what I would have said has been said already, but I want to add my voice to all those demanding that we take ME seriously—that in the future,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon (13 Jun 2018)

Kelvin Hopkins: What recent discussions he has had with the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy on the Swansea Bay tidal lagoon.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon (13 Jun 2018)

Kelvin Hopkins: The Swansea Bay tidal lagoon is vital to Britain’s future energy supplies and is the first of many major schemes to harness the vast marine energy resources around our shores to generate electricity and switch the country to renewables, to reduce and prevent climate change. That is now urgent. Given that, among other things, the Welsh Government have offered to help pay for it, when are the...

Rail Timetabling (4 Jun 2018)

Kelvin Hopkins: I have thousands of constituents who commute daily from Leagrave and Luton stations and who are suffering from recent service failures—I have a sheaf of their complaints in my hand. Is it not the reality that GTR has consistently sought to squeeze more passengers on to too few trains and has employed insufficient drivers in the interest of profits, at the expense of passengers? When are the...

Business of the House (24 May 2018)

Kelvin Hopkins: Recent estimates are that every year in the UK more than 15,000 babies are born damaged by alcohol consumed during pregnancy, condemning them to lifelong difficulties. Foetal alcohol spectrum disorder, for example, has been found to affect more than 50% of those in prison; that is just one tragic manifestation of its scourges. Will the Leader of the House press the case with her Government...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Heathrow: Third Runway (24 May 2018)

Kelvin Hopkins: May I suggest to the Secretary of State that a much cheaper and more practicable alternative to the Heathrow third runway would be to use the considerable spare capacity and long runway at Birmingham airport by electrifying and upgrading the Chiltern railway line and linking it to Crossrail? This would provide for a fast, direct, non-stop shuttle service between central London and Birmingham...

Kelvin Hopkins: What recent assessment she has made of trends in the level of fees and charges applied by asset managers to the investments made by defined contribution and defined benefit pension schemes.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Pension Schemes: Fees and Charges (21 May 2018)

Kelvin Hopkins: The Minister will recall my earlier question to him on 9 October last year, but is it not the case that all essentially private pension schemes, defined benefit or not, incur costs and uncertainties that significantly reduce benefits to savers, and the only way to minimise such costs is to establish a universal full-blown defined contributions and defined benefits state earnings-related...

East Coast Main Line (16 May 2018)

Kelvin Hopkins: May I remind the Secretary of State of a previous experience with public-private partnership on the railways—namely that in the London underground? It was forced on the Mayor of London and Transport for London, who resisted it very strongly. The scheme collapsed in disorder, very expensively. Tube Lines and Metronet—the two private companies involved—stuffed their pockets with money...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Sixth-Form Colleges: Funding (14 May 2018)

Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [Lords]: Independent review of regulations with counter-terrorism purpose (1 May 2018)

Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [Lords]: Independent review of regulations with counter-terrorism purpose (1 May 2018)

Kelvin Hopkins: I am a member of the European Scrutiny Committee, and we do take the view that after Brexit there should be a Committee that can continue to keep an eye on what is happening in the EU, because that will still be important and very relevant to what happens in Britain.
