Nato Summit (16 Jul 2018)

Barry Sheerman: Does the Prime Minister agree that peace and prosperity since the last world war have been secured by the United Nations, by NATO and by the European Union? Does she agree that she now has a real opportunity to be the real leader, reminding all our European allies that she has this responsibility?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Knife Crime (16 Jul 2018)

Barry Sheerman: I am sure that the Home Secretary does not want to trivialise this issue, but the fact of the matter is that the real concern—the deep roots of this issue—is very often the emergence of gangs in all of our towns and cities and in our schools. What will we do to combat not just knife crime, but the gangs that seem to promote it?

Immigration: Pausing the Hostile Environment (12 Jul 2018)

Barry Sheerman: The Minister might not know that we have a substantial Caribbean community in Huddersfield, mainly from Grenada and Jamaica—indeed, some of my Opposition colleagues have links to the community. Two people from that community came to see me in the House of Commons yesterday. They are very concerned, and not only about the insecurity that many of the older generation feel. A lot of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Tree Planting (12 Jul 2018)

Barry Sheerman: I welcome the Minister back, but will she give that Secretary of State of hers a good thump in the direction of taking trees seriously? There is a close relationship between trees and the quality of air that we breathe in our country, and this Government only plan to sort out clean air by 2040. Can we not have more trees, as under the northern forest initiative and the white rose initiative?...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (12 Jul 2018)

Barry Sheerman: Has the Secretary of State made any progress in understanding what is happening on our farming land and in our countryside that causes so many species of birds and other animals to disappear?

The Right Hon. Member for Meriden, Representing the Church Commissioners Was Asked: Church of England Schools: Creative Learning (12 Jul 2018)

Barry Sheerman: To ask the right hon. Member for Meriden, representing the Church Commissioners, what steps the Church of England is taking to encourage the development of creative learning in its primary schools.

The Right Hon. Member for Meriden, Representing the Church Commissioners Was Asked: Church of England Schools: Creative Learning (12 Jul 2018)

Barry Sheerman: Those are words that give me great encouragement, but is the right hon. Lady aware that in many schools the art of creating and making things has almost disappeared with the abolition of design and technology from the curriculum? Will she look into the Victoria and Albert museum’s new education foundation? It is doing very interesting work on making things in schools—and, of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Points of Order (10 Jul 2018)

Barry Sheerman: On a point of order, Mr Speaker.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Points of Order (10 Jul 2018)

Barry Sheerman: This is a very busy time for Parliament, Mr Speaker. I do not know whether you have been able to see the queues that are gathering around the Palace, especially now, when so many schoolchildren are taking their last opportunity to visit. Is it right that the queues are so long, that security is so slow, and that most of the entrances to this great royal Palace are filthy, with the small of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Points of Order (10 Jul 2018)

Barry Sheerman: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. I know that you are a very busy man, but may I invite you to join me on a walk around the Palace so that we can see it in person?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Female Offenders (10 Jul 2018)

Barry Sheerman: New Hall, one of the largest women’s prisons, is close to my constituency. The message that I am getting from it recently is, first, about the evaluation of whether new prisoners are literate or numerate, and whether they have problems with autism. Secondly, it demands that all women prisoners should be safe and secure from sexual depredation when they are serving their sentence.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (10 Jul 2018)

Barry Sheerman: Will the Secretary of State do something about the way in which we treat miscarriages of justice in this country, and will he meet the all-party parliamentary group on miscarriages of justice to discuss it?

Public Bill Committee: Stalking Protection Bill: Applications for orders (9 Jul 2018)

Barry Sheerman: I, too, congratulate the hon. Member for Totnes. I was one of the original members of the commission on stalking, which had members from the House of Lords and the House of Commons. It was pretty new, and it was a very good group. All of us who are still in contact think that the Bill builds on the foundations we created. We thank her immensely and hope the Bill comes to fruition quickly.

Public Bill Committee: Stalking Protection Bill: Applications for orders (9 Jul 2018)

Barry Sheerman: I realise that I am pushing my luck after being late coming in; I was awaiting the Prime Minister’s statement. I found during the 10 years that I chaired what became the Children, Schools and Families Committee that fine words come from Ministers on how to identify the deep-seated causes of stalking in individual personalities, but that there is a shortfall in the therapies and the...

Leaving the EU (9 Jul 2018)

Barry Sheerman: May I beg the Prime Minister to think again? It is obvious, even from today’s proceedings, that for all her hard work at Chequers, she is still imprisoned by a group of hard Brexit ideologues. Will she change her mind, speak to those who have a real desire for the national interest in withdrawing from the European Union, and take a rather different view on having a vote in Parliament on...
