Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (9 Mar 2017)

John Martin McDonnell: That is a process of bringing MPs together as individuals, not as party representatives—let us be absolutely clear about that. We look forward to any proposals that come forward for consideration from any source. If we can find a practical way forward, we certainly will. The most important thing at the moment is that we have an emergency at the moment. We need £2 billion now, not...

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (9 Mar 2017)

John Martin McDonnell: As always, my hon. Friend has pre-empted my remarks. Not only did the Government fail to address social care yesterday, but they failed to address in any way the crisis in our NHS. It was completely ignored. Ahead of the autumn statement, Labour and others were warning that the NHS was in crisis. It was in crisis before the winter, but the Chancellor could not find a single penny for the NHS...

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (9 Mar 2017)

John Martin McDonnell: I congratulate my right hon. Friend on his campaign, which he has stuck with for a number of years. I remember him saying that some years ago under a previous Secretary of State. Assurances were given about investment in preventive medicine and so on, but then what happened? We had an unnecessary £3 billion reorganisation imposed from the top and the money was lost. I regret that my...

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (9 Mar 2017)

John Martin McDonnell: In a past life, as chief executive of the Association of London Government, I was responsible for managing European funds for London, including the European regional development fund, the European social fund and a range of other funds. I know what contribution those funds make. I also know how much investment they prise in from elsewhere, what match funding is required and how to build...

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (9 Mar 2017)

John Martin McDonnell: I know how hard my hon. Friend has fought on these issues, and I congratulate her. She has a grassroots understanding of the consequences of that lack of funding, and of the implications for her region and city. The consequences of the lack of investment are staggering, but it also undermines confidence in the private sector to match fund and invest. That is what we are seeing, even at the...

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (9 Mar 2017)

John Martin McDonnell: It is not just that provision should be made, but that the cuts have established that situation. Whatever system is introduced, that organisation will not be fit for purpose because of a lack of investment over the recent period, which my right hon. Friend has consistently pointed out. We understand the vote in the referendum. People voted to leave, but we repeat time and again that they did...

Amendment of the Law (8 Mar 2017)

John Martin McDonnell: I am really sorry.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (28 Feb 2017)

John Martin McDonnell: Last week, the Government snuck out a statement on regulations denying 150,000 disabled people access to personal independence payments awarded by the upper tribunal. That was brutal. Last year, the previous Chancellor absorbed the costs when the Government were forced to halt cuts to personal independence payments to disabled people. In this case, are those disabled people being denied...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (28 Feb 2017)

John Martin McDonnell: One of those people contacted us. She has type 2 diabetes, fibromyalgia, depression, and anxiety. As a result of the Government’s action, she will now not be extended the support that the courts awarded her. It is clear from last night’s announcement of further austerity measures for Departments that the Government are all about forcing Departments to meet the Chancellor’s...
