Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Oct 2017)

Joan Ryan: Trust for London’s latest property profile shows that levels of homelessness in Enfield have risen by 82% in the last two years alone and that the eviction rate is the highest in the capital. What hope can the Prime Minister give to those of my constituents who are in work in the private rented sector that they can achieve their reasonable aspiration for themselves and their children to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: West Bank (17 Oct 2017)

Joan Ryan: Does the Minister agree that Hezbollah poses a serious threat to Israel’s security and presents a significant barrier to peace in the middle east? Does he share my concern about recent reports that Iran has been constructing rocket factories for Hezbollah in Lebanon, and that the terrorists now have weapons capable of hitting any part of Israel?

Police Pay and Funding (14 Sep 2017)

Joan Ryan: The Metropolitan police have warned of steep increases in gun and knife crime in London over the past year: gun and knife crime have risen 42% and 24% respectively, and recorded crime is up across virtually every category, which does not chime with what the Minister is saying. Police numbers fell for the seventh consecutive year in July, and many forces are at breaking point. I do not see how...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Sport: Discrimination (14 Sep 2017)

Joan Ryan: Will the Minister join me in congratulating the England team who took part in the women’s rugby world cup in Ireland over the summer? I watched them play and they were magnificent.

Attorney General: Hate Crime (14 Sep 2017)

Joan Ryan: Earlier this year, the Kantor Centre identified an 11% increase in anti-Semitic abuse in the UK, much of which is driven by online and social media-based abuse. I am sure the whole House would want to condemn anti-Semitic abuse, but we need to do much more to tackle it, to prosecute it and to make it clear how unacceptable it is.

Princess Royal Hospital Telford: Bereavement Leave: Loss of a Child (12 Sep 2017)

Joan Ryan: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on securing this important debate. I welcome the Government’s commitment to supporting the hon. Member for Thirsk and Malton (Kevin Hollinrake), as I hope that Members across the House will. I have a family in my constituency who lost a young child in very difficult circumstances—they do not wish to be named—and their point to me was that...

16-to-19 Education Funding — [David Hanson in the Chair] (7 Sep 2017)

Joan Ryan: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Scunthorpe (Nic Dakin) on securing this important debate, and on his powerful speech. It is a pleasure to follow the speech that the hon. Member for Waveney (Peter Aldous) has just made. I, too, urge the Government to adopt the recommendations of the Support Our Sixth-formers campaign. Enfield is one of the top-performing local authorities for...

New Housing Design (5 Sep 2017)

Joan Ryan: Before I call the Minister, I remind him that he may wish to leave time at the end for the mover of the motion to wind up.

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Topical Questions (12 Jul 2017)

Joan Ryan: Does the Minister agree that recent proposals in Israel on the construction of a Gaza sea port, such as those advanced by the Israeli Labor Knesset Member Omer Barlev and discussed last month by the Israeli Cabinet, would offer a much-needed route to easing the situation in Gaza? Will he support that initiative?

Social Inequality (Children’s Centres) (11 Jul 2017)

Joan Ryan: Order. Interventions need to be pithy.

Balancing the Public Finances — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (11 Jul 2017)

Joan Ryan: I will now call the Front-Bench spokesmen. If they take eight or nine minutes each, Mr Harper will have one minute at the end.

Balancing the Public Finances — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (11 Jul 2017)

Joan Ryan: Order. The time limit will now reduce to two minutes.

Balancing the Public Finances — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (11 Jul 2017)

Joan Ryan: Order. I am going to apply a three-minute limit. That still might mean that not everybody gets in. It is for Members to police it and to go below three minutes—you will not be able to go above the three minutes.

Balancing the Public Finances — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (11 Jul 2017)

Joan Ryan: Order. I remind the hon. Member for Harborough (Neil O'Brien) that he is supposed to address the Chair.

Balancing the Public Finances — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (11 Jul 2017)

Joan Ryan: I remind hon. Members that we are very short on time and that there are a lot of Members who want to speak. I suggest that hon. Members keep their remarks to no more than three minutes, otherwise I will have to introduce a time limit after the next speaker.

Balancing the Public Finances — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (11 Jul 2017)

Joan Ryan: If Members wish to remove their jackets, they should feel free to do so, and of course their ties—I have removed mine, as you can see.

Balancing the Public Finances — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (11 Jul 2017)

Joan Ryan: Order. I intend to call the Front-Bench speakers at about 10.30. Given the number of hon. Members who want to speak, I suggest that they limit themselves to a maximum of four minutes, if not a little less. I will not apply a time limit at the moment. We shall see how we go.

Supply and Appropriation (Main Estimates) Bill: Israel and Palestinian Talks (5 Jul 2017)

Joan Ryan: New American leadership in the region is important, but pursuing the “ultimate deal” is about much more than carving up some troublesome real estate. The culture, history, hopes and fears of both Israelis and Palestinians must be respected, cherished and, where necessary, assuaged. It is also crucial that any US initiative supports the valuable work that Israel, Egypt and Jordan...

Supply and Appropriation (Main Estimates) Bill: Israel and Palestinian Talks (5 Jul 2017)

Joan Ryan: I never made any secret of my opposition to settlement building. It is regrettable. A better move towards peace would be if Mr Netanyahu did what I suggested when I stood on a platform with him, and he froze all settlement building. In the event of an agreement, settlements will, of course, be the cause of anger and conflict in Israel, as they were in 1981 and 2005—so, understandably,...

European Council (26 Jun 2017)

Joan Ryan: The European arrest warrant and its extradition orders have proved a very effective means by which we have seen speedy justice for those who have committed a crime and for victims who want a speedy outcome. What does the Prime Minister envisage as the future of the European arrest warrant? Has she yet discussed that at any point? If not, when does she think it will be discussed?
