Points of Order (5 Nov 2019)

Ivan Lewis: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I seek your guidance. In the remaining hours before purdah, what steps are available to the House to require the Secretary of State for Transport to publish the Oakervee review of High Speed 2? Whistleblowers have revealed that this is one of the great public scandals, I believe, of our generation, and it has led to parliamentarians making decisions based on...

Foreign and Commonwealth Office: UK Soft Power (5 Nov 2019)

Ivan Lewis: As the first Bury Member of Parliament to speak, may I congratulate you on your fantastic achievement, Mr Speaker? Following yesterday’s decision, which was based on merit, you have been able to bring a great sense of unity to the House. Turning to soft power, what are the Government doing to make it clear to the Indian Government that we have extremely serious concerns about human rights...

Endometriosis Workplace Support (29 Oct 2019)

Ivan Lewis: It is always a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Pritchard. I congratulate the right hon. Member for Elmet and Rothwell (Alec Shelbrooke) not only on securing the debate, but on the eloquent way that he presented his arguments, which were excellent and enabled us all to unite around them. I will speak briefly on behalf of a constituent who wants to be identified, Katie Adwas, who...

Environment Bill (28 Oct 2019)

Ivan Lewis: I thank the Secretary of State for giving way. Will she confirm that it is Government policy that green belt land should be built on only in extenuating circumstances? The proposals to build on the green belt in Radcliffe, Unsworth and Simister in my constituency will devastate entire green belt areas and completely destroy the character of the village of Simister. Does she agree that that is...

Early Parliamentary General Election (No. 2) (9 Sep 2019)

Ivan Lewis: In its handling of Brexit, this House has lost the respect of the country and made us a laughing stock around the world. Prolonged uncertainty, as much as no deal, can tip us into recession, with disastrous consequences for jobs and living standards. I hear high-minded speeches about protecting the constitution and the propriety expected of Government, and I accept that a small number of...

Summer Adjournment (25 Jul 2019)

Ivan Lewis: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for South Suffolk (James Cartlidge). Like the hon. Member for Southend West (Sir David Amess), I want to raise the issue of avoidable deaths as a consequence of epilepsy. This issue does not get enough focus in the House. It causes a great deal of distress, for obvious reasons, to many families. There are 21 epilepsy deaths each week in the United...

Speaker’S Statement: Points of Order (25 Jul 2019)

Ivan Lewis: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. In a debate last week on High Speed 2, the Minister, the hon. Member for Wealden (Ms Ghani), was asked very directly whether any non-disclosure clauses had been included in redundancy agreements with former staff at HS2. She said on several occasions that no such non-disclosure clauses were included in those redundancy arrangements. A subsequent parliamentary...

Health and Social Care: Rural Areas: Health Service Funding (23 Jul 2019)

Ivan Lewis: People in rural areas need more investment in social care services. I do not always agree with the Daily Mail, but is it not right when it says that we now need a national dementia fund and an all-party approach to defining the nature and funding of the social care system in this country? Successive Governments have failed in that respect, and older people, disabled people and their families...

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill: Quarterly reports on environmental impact, costs and progress (15 Jul 2019)

Ivan Lewis: I entirely accept what you say, Mr Deputy Speaker. I simply say to the right hon. Gentleman that he was talking about a genuinely false choice, and we should not go down the road of such false choices. I am agnostic about HS2. The reason I have become agnostic is that I am absolutely convinced that Members of this House and people in this country are not being given full, appropriate and...

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill: Quarterly reports on environmental impact, costs and progress (15 Jul 2019)

Ivan Lewis: I am happy to support the new clauses as they make a lot of sense in terms of accountability, evaluation and transparency, as well as ensuring constant review of a project as massive as HS2. It is also important to acknowledge the scandalous inequality of investment in the north of England that has been the case under successive Governments. The former Chancellor of the Exchequer, George...
