Parole Board: Transparency and Victim Support: Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation and Liability for Housing Standards) Bill (19 Jan 2018)

Steve Pound: The hon. Gentleman clearly has an encyclopaedic knowledge of people’s birthdays, so it will not have escaped him that today it is also the birthday of the Speaker’s Chaplain, Rose Hudson-Wilkin. Will he join those from all parts of the House in wishing her the happiest of birthdays?

Ukraine — [Mrs Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (20 Dec 2017)

Steve Pound: It is obviously a pleasure to serve under you, Mrs Gillan. The right hon. Member for Maldon (Mr Whittingdale) asked at the beginning why we are concerned about Ukraine and why it is an issue. Well, we have heard many reasons why Ukraine is important. The fact that it is significant in this Parliament is very much to his credit, that of the hon. Member for Mid Derbyshire (Mrs Latham) and her...

Ukraine — [Mrs Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (20 Dec 2017)

Steve Pound: I am reluctant to interrupt the right hon. Gentleman’s flow; he speaks with such authority that he commands the respect of the Chamber. In terms of our bilateral relationship on anti-corruption and good governance, does the right hon. Gentleman agree that a great deal of the UK’s credibility at the moment comes from our being a member of the EU? If, possibly, we withdraw from the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: The Economy (20 Dec 2017)

Steve Pound: Thank you very much indeed, Mr Speaker. Well, this is all very well, but the Secretary of State referred to yesterday’s statement by the Northern Ireland civil service that is casting a dark pall over Northern Ireland. Will the Minister take this opportunity to say that, when the Government suggest ways of balancing the books by February, they will rule out scrapping the free bus pass,...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Higher Rates for Additional Dwellings (18 Dec 2017)

Steve Pound: I hope my hon. Friend will forgive me for interrupting her flow. She is making a precise and pertinent point. Would she not wish to encourage all people of good heart here present to support the Bill that has been presented by my hon. Friend the Member for Westminster North (Ms Buck) on this very subject?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Universal Credit: Sanctions (18 Dec 2017)

Steve Pound: What estimate his Department has made of the number of sanctions that will be applied each month as universal credit is rolled out.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Universal Credit: Sanctions (18 Dec 2017)

Steve Pound: Well, what an answer! Never would I accuse the Minister of dedolence, but I must say that that sort of Panglossian response shows an absence of empathy or understanding, particularly of the empirical evidence that we have had to date. My constituents see universal credit as a rock rolling down a hill next April. However, as this is Christmas and we are in the spirit of giving and generosity,...

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?[Official...

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...

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: rose—
