Adjournment (Christmas) (21 Dec 2000)

Ms Jenny Jones: I am grateful to have the opportunity to discuss the importance of urban forestry in our towns and cities, and the threat that it faces. I originally raised the issue in a similar debate in March 1999. At the time, a national newspaper described Wolverhampton as one of the country's greenest and cleanest cities. It was not quite right, because at that time Wolverhampton was still a...

Adoption (21 Dec 2000)

Ms Jenny Jones: As somebody who worked in adoption some years ago, I wholeheartedly welcome the review, which is long overdue. Everybody in the profession realises that it is about time that the fundamental changes that are proposed were made. Will my right hon. Friend ensure that the quality of the vetting of adoptive parents is given a thorough overhaul? That should be done not only to remove some of the...

Orders of the Day — Human Fertilisation and Embryology (19 Dec 2000)

Ms Jenny Jones: Can my hon. Friend confirm that scientists who have successfully converted adult stem cells and differentiated cells into other types of adult cells have confirmed that it is premature to suggest that adult cells can replace embryonic cells in that research?

Business of the House (22 Jun 2000)

Ms Jenny Jones: Following the front-page story in today's Daily Record that Mike Tyson has physically assaulted someone so that they required hospital treatment, can my right hon. Friend arrange for the Home Secretary to make a statement on whether he will review the conditions of Mike Tyson's entry into this country, bearing in mind the fact that one of the reasons for allowing him entry was that he was not...

European Affairs (15 Jun 2000)

Ms Jenny Jones: I am grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the debate. May I pick up on the final words of the hon. Member for Boston and Skegness (Sir R. Body), who talked about the importance of uniting what I call the greater Europe? That is the issue that I want to address. Great interest has been shown, in Parliament and outside, in the charter of fundamental rights. The relevant documents to...

European Affairs (15 Jun 2000)

Ms Jenny Jones: We will not go into that subject just now. With two systems, we would end up with all the problems associated with conflicting jurisdictions. Therefore, almost everyone from whom the European Scrutiny Committee took evidence felt that a legally binding charter was an extremely bad idea. I remind the House that the Committee took evidence from, among other people, a judge from the European...

Orders of the Day — Care Standards Bill [Lords] (18 May 2000)

Ms Jenny Jones: As someone who worked in child protection and on child abuse cases some years ago, I support much of the Bill. Many of the new provisions are long overdue. I congratulate my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Health on presenting the Bill, and join my colleagues in praising my right hon. Friend the Member for Holborn and St. Pancras (Mr. Dobson) for his work on such matters—I am...

Business of the House (18 May 2000)

Ms Jenny Jones: My right hon. Friend may have noticed written question No. 3 on the Order Paper today, which is due to be answered today, and which concerns the Home Secretary's decision on Mike Tyson's application for a visitor's visa. In view of the considerable public interest in that decision, can my right hon. Friend say whether she has had an indication from the Home Secretary of when he will give his...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (17 May 2000)

Ms Jenny Jones: Like many other Members, from time to time I have to explain to my constituents why their close relatives have not been allowed into this country to attend weddings and funerals. Does my right hon. Friend agree that my task will be made more difficult if Mike Tyson, who has been convicted of a serious criminal offence, is allowed into the country for purely commercial gain?

Adjournment (Easter) (20 Apr 2000)

Ms Jenny Jones: European framework directive 89/391/EEC may not be the stuff of headlines, but, since it was incorporated in our health and safety regulations, it has become apparent that its implementation could threaten the livelihoods of external health and safety consultants. It appears that firms are now being encouraged to use only in-house employees in that role, rather than employ external...

Adjournment (Easter) (20 Apr 2000)

Ms Jenny Jones: My hon. Friend says that that is good, but I suggest that he listens to what I have to say. There is a long tradition of self-employment and of small firms in my part of the country, which stretches back to the 19th century. There are very good consultants in my area, who clearly predate what happened in the 1980s and 1990s and who are good at what they do. If we are not careful, they will...

Orders of the Day — Warm Homes and Energy Conservation Bill (10 Mar 2000)

Ms Jenny Jones: I join Labour Members in paying tribute to the hon. Member for Southend, West (Mr. Amess), who used his good fortune in the private Member's Bill ballot, being drawn No. 5, to introduce what is a very important and popular Bill. We all owe him a debt of gratitude. Like other Labour Members, I hope that having the support of so many Members on the Government Benches will not ruin his street...

Senator Pinochet (2 Mar 2000)

Ms Jenny Jones: My constituents include victims of Pinochet's brutal regime, and today they and I are required to swallow a very bitter pill. Can my right hon. Friend say where my constituents can turn now for the justice they ought to receive for the violations of their human rights?

Fisheries: Adjournment (Christmas) (13 Dec 1999)

Ms Jenny Jones: My reason for speaking is to try to prevent an impending deadlock over the sale and redevelopment of the former Wolverhampton Royal hospital in my constituency. As we speak, important decisions are being made about the site's future, and the situation is not hopeful. The former hospital is a grade 2 listed building in the middle of Wolverhampton. It dominates the All Saints area, and is...

Adjournment (Summer) (21 Jul 1999)

Ms Jenny Jones: In January this year, a constituent of mine, while travelling home to Wolverhampton via Birmingham international airport, was detained by French immigration officials at Charles de Gaulle airport. They apparently did not like the look of his passport and thought that it may have been forged. That turned out not to be true. My constituent is a British citizen and his passport was okay, but it...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Kashmir (20 Jul 1999)

Ms Jenny Jones: What plans he has to assist in negotiating a ceasefire by India and Pakistan in Kashmir. [90464]

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Kashmir (20 Jul 1999)

Ms Jenny Jones: One of my constituents, a British citizen, told me recently that he saw eight members of his extended family killed during the recent conflict in Kashmir. Bearing in mind the fact that the lives of British citizens are being affected by the conflict, and that, last year, both India and Pakistan demonstrated to the world that they have a considerable nuclear capability, may I urge my right...

Child Support Reform (1 Jul 1999)

Ms Jenny Jones: I, too, welcome these much-needed reforms. Can my right hon. Friend confirm that, as part of his proposed reform of the culture of the CSA, staff will be trained—or retrained—in effective communication skills? There is a danger that these good reforms will be weakened if staff cannot communicate properly with the public.

Eurostar Services (19 May 1999)

Ms Jenny Jones: I am pleased to have been called to speak in the debate. I am not a member of the Select Committee, but Eurostar regional services are a matter of great interest to my constituency and my region. I have a copy of the front page of the Wolverhampton Express and Star on 9 December last year, the day after the announcement about the feasibility or otherwise of Eurostar services. The headline...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (5 May 1999)

Ms Jenny Jones: Today, we commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Council of Europe. Does my right hon. Friend agree that the values for which the Council of Europe stands—democracy and human rights—are as relevant to Europeans today as they were 50 years ago? Does he also agree that vigilance is needed if those values are to be safeguarded and future generations of Europeans are to benefit from...
