Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Continued participation in the European Arrest Warrant (11 Sep 2018)

Steve Pound: I know that the Security Minister needs no reminding of the sensitivity of this matter. Does my hon. Friend agree that there could not be an area of greater sensitivity than the area around Newry and Portadown? Does he also agree that we need a full, robust and transparent reporting mechanism? Otherwise, rumours will spread, and there are some people who will seek to make the situation appear...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Leaving the EU: Backstop Proposal (5 Sep 2018)

Steve Pound: May I, from the bottom of my heart, congratulate the hon. Member for North West Cambridgeshire (Mr Vara) on his long-deserved and well-merited elevation to the dizzy heights of Minister of State? I look forward to working with him. There is, however, a cloud on the horizon. The Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill contains a proposal unique in the United Kingdom for unfettered,...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Food: Safety (25 Jul 2018)

Steve Pound: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what steps his Department is taking to ensure that food safety standards remain closely aligned with the EU after the UK leaves the EU.

Swaminarayan School Closure (18 Jul 2018)

Steve Pound: I am sorry that I missed the beginning of my hon. Friend’s well-informed and interesting peroration. He talked about other parts of west London supporting the Swaminarayan School. Certainly in my constituency of Ealing North there are many supporters. The Swaminarayan School was the first school that I am aware of to incorporate yoga as part of its teaching curriculum, and also to be a...

House of Commons Commission (External Members) (10 Jul 2018)

Steve Pound: You’re a voice crying in the wilderness, John.

Business of the House: Northern Ireland Budget (No. 2) Bill (9 Jul 2018)

Steve Pound: If one thing has been consistent throughout this extremely well-informed and passionate debate, it is the roiling, boiling frustration of people who want to see something done, who need to see something done and who want to speak up for their constituents but are prevented. It is crucial that that message comes out loud and clear. The debate started with a very telling contribution from the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (4 Jul 2018)

Steve Pound: May I, in respect of the Prime Minister’s opening statement, declare an interest, as I, too, was born in the first week of July 1948? While I recognise that the national health service is held in rather higher esteem by the nation than I am —[Hon. Members: “No!”]—we both need a bit of care and attention. May I tell the Prime Minister that what the NHS needs is...

Prime Minister: Points of Order (27 Jun 2018)

Steve Pound: As are we all.

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

Steve Pound: I assure the hon. Gentleman that I was not implying any absence of PR skills on the part of the advocates and the people who suffer from this debilitating disease; I was anthropomorphising the actual disease itself. I stole the words of the hon. Member for Cheltenham (Alex Chalk) when we pitched this debate to the Backbench Business Committee, because he was not in Westminster Hall at the time.

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

Steve Pound: It is a pleasure to serve beneath your benevolent oversight, Mr Gapes. I am pleased that my hon. Friend the Member for Washington and Sunderland West (Mrs Hodgson) is on the Opposition Front Bench, and am also pleased to see the Minister. Those two people combine deep humanity with real understanding of how illness is examined, and how stereotypes and stigma can be challenged. Above all, I...

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

Steve Pound: As do all of us.

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Security Situation (20 Jun 2018)

Steve Pound: Further to the question of the hon. Member for North Down (Lady Hermon), Michel Barnier has said this week that the United Kingdom could not remain in the European arrest warrant system post Brexit. What plans does the Secretary of State have to meet this concern, and to address the issue of the 300 additional PSNI officers for which there will be a vital need post Brexit?

Backbench Business: UK-Romanian Relations — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (19 Jun 2018)

Steve Pound: Mulţumesc, Mr Betts. May I say what a delight and pleasure this is? I am no national chauvinist, so you will not hear me banging on about the fact that both goals last night were scored by a Londoner, and you will not hear any of this Yorkshire chauvinism, even in reverse. What you will hear is my congratulations to my neighbour to the north—not the far north; barely north of...

Backbench Business: UK-Romanian Relations — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (19 Jun 2018)

Steve Pound: And a Londoner scored both goals.

Polish Anti-defamation Law — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

Steve Pound: I apologise for intervening—I realise time is short—but my hon. Friend raised an important point. He referred to slogans used by some far-right groups. Surely he would recognise that the shambling, stumbling, mono-browed knuckle-draggers of the far right of this country do not speak for our nation. They exhibit these foul, ghastly slogans, but we do not judge this country by those...

Polish Anti-defamation Law — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

Steve Pound: I apologise for interrupting the hon. Gentleman’s flow. Holocaust denial is a crime in many parts of the world. Does he suggest that we should repeal all legislation on holocaust denial?

Polish Anti-defamation Law — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

Steve Pound: I bow to my hon. Friend’s experience and the depth of her knowledge of this issue. However, I have already made the point, as I believe the hon. Member for Shrewsbury and Atcham (Daniel Kawczynski) has, that paragraph 3 of article 55a of the new law specifically and explicitly allows discussion of this matter within all scientific papers, artistic papers and academic papers. That...

Polish Anti-defamation Law — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

Steve Pound: Albert Camus was obviously a great goalkeeper, and I understand my hon. Friend’s analogy. However, I am sure that he has seen Spurs play at home as many times as I have, so he will know the insult that is used against Tottenham Hotspur players. Does he agree that that sort of language—that sort of foul anti-Semitism—should be a matter for criminal law and prosecution? It...

Polish Anti-defamation Law — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

Steve Pound: Politicians nowadays are often accused of being bland, anonymous, anodyne figures. It is on an occasion such as this that we realise that we have here, in our Parliament, people with a unique range of references, sources, backgrounds and histories. I deeply respect the hon. Member for Shrewsbury and Atcham (Daniel Kawczynski) and his background, his family connection and his blood tie....

Polish Anti-defamation Law — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

Steve Pound: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman, who speaks with authority on these matters. He and I have stood together at the Katyn memorial. We have spoken at many of these occasions. We have been at RAF Northolt on the day on which, every year, we recognise the heroic contribution of the 303 Squadron—the most successful fighter squadron in the Royal Air Force—when the bonds between our...
