Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Topical Questions (27 Nov 2017)

Steve Pound: Despite the dangerously depleted state of the service, the Royal Navy has for the first time ever been chosen to mount Queen’s Guard—and very smart and taut they looked too, in my opinion. Will the Secretary of State take this opportunity to pay tribute to the Royal Navy—in fact, to the senior service?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Topical Questions (27 Nov 2017)

Steve Pound: Aye aye, sir.

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Republic of Ireland Border (15 Nov 2017)

Steve Pound: Has the Northern Ireland Office produced an analysis of the impact of Brexit on Northern Ireland, or contributed to the rumoured “58 articles”—the sectoral analyses that we know have been produced? Will the Secretary of State commit himself to publishing all such material, as his colleagues in the Department for Exiting the European Union have already so nobly done?

Miscellaneous: Northern Ireland Budget Bill (13 Nov 2017)

Steve Pound: The hon. Member for North Antrim (Ian Paisley) has given a powerful coda to what has been, as those in all parts of the House would recognise, an extraordinarily well-informed and important debate on a desperately significant subject. There is not much doubt that an enormous amount of good will has been expressed towards the Secretary of State, and gratitude for the work he has done and the...

Miscellaneous: Northern Ireland Budget Bill (13 Nov 2017)

Steve Pound: I will happily give way to my party friend and colleague.

Miscellaneous: Northern Ireland Budget Bill (13 Nov 2017)

Steve Pound: Time is short tonight, Madam Deputy Speaker. There are things that I could say, and there are things that I would be happy to say, but the tugging on the back of my coat from my hon. Friend the Member for Pontypridd (Owen Smith) cannot be denied. The hon. Member for Edinburgh North and Leith (Deidre Brock) put her finger on it when she talked about hospitals and schools—and I hardly...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Simon Trinidad (10 Nov 2017)

Steve Pound: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, if he will make representations to the US Administration supporting the release of Simon Trinidad.

Ukrainian Holodomor — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (7 Nov 2017)

Steve Pound: Earlier the Minister mentioned the contribution that Ukrainian people have made to this country. They made a huge contribution to coal mining and steel; there is a huge Ukrainian community in Sheffield. There was even a Member of Parliament—Simon Danczuk, who is no longer in the House—of Ukrainian origin. Many Ukrainian people will be listening today. Does the Minister agree that...

Ukrainian Holodomor — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (7 Nov 2017)

Steve Pound: I apologise for interrupting the hon. Lady’s flow, because she is speaking well, powerfully and passionately, as always. I sometimes despair of the way we tie ourselves in knots. Barack Obama referred to the Armenian genocide as the meds yeghern, which simply means “great crime” in Armenian. It seems to me that we are going round and round the houses with these expressions....

Ukrainian Holodomor — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (7 Nov 2017)

Steve Pound: It is an honour and a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Walker. It is a common courtesy to pay credit to the hon. Member who introduces the debate, but on this occasion I emphasise and underline that it is more than a courtesy: the hon. Member for Mid Derbyshire (Mrs Latham) has done a great service to this House not just today but on past occasions on which she has spoken on...

Grenfell Recovery Taskforce (6 Nov 2017)

Steve Pound: The Secretary of State is rightly concentrating on the human face and the human cost of this tragedy, and I pay credit to him for that. However, the structure is also important. Every day, thousands upon thousands of people on the Hammersmith and City line and on Western Avenue have to see this smoke-blackened vertical charnel house—this modern Gormenghast—jutting into the sky....

Police Funding: London — [James Gray in the Chair] (25 Oct 2017)

Steve Pound: “Zombie killers”.

Police Funding: London — [James Gray in the Chair] (25 Oct 2017)

Steve Pound: A long way out of London!

Police Funding: London — [James Gray in the Chair] (25 Oct 2017)

Steve Pound: I have an alibi.

Police Funding: London — [James Gray in the Chair] (25 Oct 2017)

Steve Pound: It is a pleasure to serve under your command, Mr Gray. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Hornsey and Wood Green (Catherine West) on securing this debate. She and I have met the deputy Mayor for policing—I cannot remember a more utterly depressing, soul-destroying meeting. The deputy Mayor is an excellent officer, but during that meeting we realised the scale of the impact of...

Police Funding: London — [James Gray in the Chair] (25 Oct 2017)

Steve Pound: I most certainly withdraw the remark and, through gritted teeth, apologise for it. The trouble is that I think this is a trahison des clercs. The hon. Member for Harrow East (Bob Blackman) knows what he is saying and I think he knows the reality of the situation. Let us get down to the reality of what is happening to policing in London. What is happening to young black youth on the streets...

Police Funding: London — [James Gray in the Chair] (25 Oct 2017)

Steve Pound: I was about to finish, but I will certainly give way to a Liberal Democrat.

Police Funding: London — [James Gray in the Chair] (25 Oct 2017)

Steve Pound: I almost wish that the right hon. Gentleman had not said that, because I do not like talking about the realities of modern policing. Policing is a family—I am not talking about direct siblings and uncles and aunts, but it is a police family. I have never known morale to be so low. Like every one of us in this room, I go to police commendation ceremonies two or three times a year, and in...
