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

Steve Pound: With your permission, Mr Deputy Speaker, I shall breach the normal partisan rules of the House and say that the Minister of State made what I thought was an excellent speech, in which he balanced the humanity that should inform us all with the frustration and annoyance that affect so many of our constituents. I felt that he spoke very well indeed, and that his words were matched by those of...

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

Steve Pound: I take the point made by my hon. Friend. I think that many of us feel the same irritation. As I was saying, Ealing is not blessed with huge open spaces, but the open spaces that we have tend to be public parks, school playing fields, sports fields and golf courses, every one of which has suffered from a Traveller incursion in the last few years. It is not as if Ealing is one of the boroughs...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Employment and Disabled People (9 Oct 2017)

Steve Pound: May I address my question to the Minister who speaks for a party that has been in power for more than seven years? This morning my constituent, Debbie A, came to tell me that she had failed her ESA assessment, first because she had been told that she could hear her name being called from the waiting room, when in fact she had been told that it was being called by her son, who was sitting next...

Future of RAF Northolt (13 Sep 2017)

Steve Pound: I apologise profusely to you, Mr Howarth, and to the Minister for not being able to stay to the end of the debate, as I have to be on the Front Bench in the main Chamber for Northern Ireland questions. My hon. Friend the Member for Harrow West (Gareth Thomas) talked about the history of RAF Northolt, which after all precedes and predates the existence of the RAF, but he did not mention the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Cross-border Security (13 Sep 2017)

Steve Pound: I am grateful to the Minister for her response and I am sure she will join my hon. Friend the Member for Pontypridd (Owen Smith) and me in welcoming Adrian O’Neill, Ireland’s newly appointed ambassador, to London. Will she also speak to Dublin about how it, as a co-guarantor of the Good Friday agreement, can assist in moving the peace process forward? I very much welcome the...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Faith Schools: Admissions (13 Sep 2017)

Steve Pound: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what her policy is on the removal of the cap on faith admissions; and if she will make a statement.

Points of Order: Drugs Policy (18 Jul 2017)

Steve Pound: My hon. Friend is making an informed statement. Does he agree that cannabis sativa and cannabis indica are totally different from the skunk that we have discussed? The experience in the western United States is that one can have a perfectly civilised purchasing system for cannabis sativa and cannabis indica. May I possibly appeal to the more avaricious elements on the Government Benches, as...

Points of Order: Drugs Policy (18 Jul 2017)

Steve Pound: The hon. Gentleman is noted for his candour on this subject and the House respects him for it. Until 1968 we ran what was widely known throughout the world as the British system: GPs prescribed diamorphine hydrochloride and cocaine hydrochloride. We had nothing like the number of deaths today because of the purity of the product. Now the cause of death is impurity and differentiated supplies....

Anglo-Polish Relations — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Steve Pound: The hon. Gentleman is making an extremely important point. It seems that the links between Poland and this country, which were forged in blood—those links of fraternity and shared struggle—are so powerful that they can never be broken. Was he in the House when his hon. Friend, the hon. Member for West Dunbartonshire (Martin Docherty-Hughes), spoke about the Clydebank blitz, when...

Anglo-Polish Relations — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Steve Pound: Forgive me.

Anglo-Polish Relations — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Steve Pound: The hon. Gentleman’s points are extremely important. The contribution and enormous sacrifice made by the Polish people means that they have the support of every proud member of this nation. The inquest on the suicide of Dagmara Przybysz opened yesterday. That bright, intelligent young woman committed suicide because she was bullied for being Polish. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Motability (13 Jul 2017)

Steve Pound: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, if he will take steps to compile information on the number of Motability vehicles which have been recalled in England between (a) January to March and (b) April to June 2017.

Supply and Appropriation (Main Estimates) Bill: Criminal Law (Northern Ireland) (5 Jul 2017)

Steve Pound: Will the Minister tell the House whether that will be on an annual, biannual or six-monthly basis?

Supply and Appropriation (Main Estimates) Bill: Criminal Law (Northern Ireland) (5 Jul 2017)

Steve Pound: I am sure that I join the whole House, Madam Deputy Speaker, in welcoming you to your seat. I learned, when I was a very junior Whip under your leadership, that your eye misses nothing. I am quite sure that that will be our experience here. I would also say that, during my time in the Whips Office, one of my opposite numbers was the Under-Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, the hon....
