Iran (16 Oct 2017)

Steve McCabe: Is it not true that one of the dominant voices in Iran is the Revolutionary Guard, the people who blocked the release of Nazanin Ratcliffe? However much we might worry about President Trump’s actions, would we not be mad to rely on the word and behaviour of the Revolutionary Guard for nuclear security, or anything else?

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

Steve McCabe: indicated dissent.

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

Steve McCabe: I beg to move, That this House has considered tackling aggressive antisocial behaviour. It is a pleasure to see you in the Chair, Mr Bailey. For seven years, the standard response of Ministers to any question or doubt about crime and antisocial behaviour has been an assurance that crime is falling. Those of us who ventured that police budgets were being cut too deep and too fast, exposing...

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

Steve McCabe: I agree totally. Those reckless cuts and the Government’s refusal to recognise the consequences are the reason why we are experiencing such problems. As well as giving us a hopelessly complacent message about crime falling, Ministers for far too long have tried to tell us that this is all about back-office savings—that the police are top heavy in administration and there is plenty...

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

Steve McCabe: I do agree. It seems to me that one feature of policing, particularly in relation to antisocial behaviour, must be deterrence. If people feel that they will not be caught and there will be no consequences, there is nothing to inhibit their behaviour, and that is exactly what we see in communities right across the country at the present time. Policing has now reached a historic low, with...

Government Policy on the Proceedings of the House: Gypsies and Travellers and Local Communities (9 Oct 2017)

Steve McCabe: Like so many others, my constituency has been plagued by the problem of illegal encampments for the past two years. It is the same in the constituency of my hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Northfield (Richard Burden), who cannot be here tonight because he has suffered a bereavement. I want to make it clear that I am referring to the behaviour of a problematic minority; I have no wish...

Business of the House (Today): Nomination of Members to Committees (12 Sep 2017)

Steve McCabe: As a great democrat who obviously has massive influence over his right hon. Friend the Leader of the House, why does he not urge her to accept such a sensible course of action?

Business of the House (Today): Nomination of Members to Committees (12 Sep 2017)

Steve McCabe: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Business of the House (Today): Nomination of Members to Committees (12 Sep 2017)

Steve McCabe: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman. He talks about wringing out concessions. Is he suggesting that the concession we should demand is that the Selection Committee agrees to even numbers, and we can then accept that?

Taxable Benefits (6 Sep 2017)

Steve McCabe: I am grateful for the opportunity to make a brief contribution to this debate. I cannot help but feel that the Government seem a little embarrassed by this whole Budget, this whole set of measures and the state of the economy. Presumably, that is why there were so few people on the Government side to make a contribution today. We did have a fleeting, cameo appearance from the Chancellor...

Taxable Benefits (6 Sep 2017)

Steve McCabe: On business investment relief, it was suggested a moment ago that we should work with the Government. Does my hon. Friend agree that they should publish details of which companies and businesses benefit from such investment, and what part of the country they are located in? That way, we will be able to see whether there is anything to work with.

Taxable Benefits (6 Sep 2017)

Steve McCabe: Will the Minister explain how long the Government have been working on this major concession and when he anticipates that there will actually be some change that means non-doms experience the same arrangements as ordinary taxpayers in this country?

Schools Update (17 Jul 2017)

Steve McCabe: I welcome any additional funding. There is a lot of concern about the safety of schools following the Grenfell Tower disaster, so will the Secretary of State update me on how many schools in my constituency will be inspected, how that work will be co-ordinated and how any remedial action will be funded?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (17 Jul 2017)

Steve McCabe: I have regularly raised my concerns about the safety of the rapid conversion of family homes in my constituency into houses in multiple occupation. In view of the Grenfell disaster, do the Government have any plans to issue new guidance to local planning authorities, particularly about the safety of such conversions?

Taylor Review: Working Practices (11 Jul 2017)

Steve McCabe: When the Minister is considering how to respond to the review, will she talk to her colleagues in the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport about the youth full-time social action review, which is considering the question of long-time volunteering? I realise that these are slightly different issues, but there is still a considerable overlap. The question of safeguards and...

G20 (10 Jul 2017)

Steve McCabe: Given the Prime Minister’s personal commitment to ending modern slavery and her desire for other countries to follow the UK’s lead, why does she think it takes her Home Office more than two years to investigate the case of a woman in my constituency who is a victim of rape, slavery and trafficking? What kind of example is she setting for the G20 there?

21ST Century Fox/Sky Merger (29 Jun 2017)

Steve McCabe: On broadcasting standards, does the Secretary of State recall the anger over the Fox News broadcast that claimed that Birmingham is a city where non-Muslims simply cannot go? If she approves this merger, what assurance can she give us that she can prevent that kind of offensive nonsense from being allowed on a Sky News programme in this country?

NHS Shared Business Services (27 Jun 2017)

Steve McCabe: The Secretary of State says that no patients were harmed and that the documents were securely stored, but 35 sacks of mail were destroyed. How does he know that he made the right call in every situation?

Housing and Social Security (22 Jun 2017)

Steve McCabe: Is not the one single bit of reassurance that everyone needs the knowledge that if local authorities are going to carry out inspections and take remedial action, there will be funding from the Government to deliver it?
