Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Museums Sector (21 Jun 2018)

Barry Sheerman: Happy midsummer’s day to you, Mr Speaker, and to everyone else. It is wonderful that we have free museums, but is it not a fact that not enough kids from lower income families go to them? Is it not time we did something about that? The school holidays are nearly here, and most of the things that kids want to go to in London are very expensive.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Wakefield: Ministerial Visit (21 Jun 2018)

Barry Sheerman: That’s because there is nothing to see in Suffolk!

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (21 Jun 2018)

Barry Sheerman: If he will make a statement on his departmental responsibilities.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (21 Jun 2018)

Barry Sheerman: I obviously support the Secretary of State in what he says about the English teams, especially the women’s cricket team, which was brilliant. Could I ask him to consider carefully our big towns, such as Huddersfield, which are not cities? Up to now, it has never had a consensus on becoming a city. Big towns such as Huddersfield really suffer from not receiving much money, which goes to...

Attorney General: Tackling Economic Crime (21 Jun 2018)

Barry Sheerman: The Attorney General knows that all of us want a really effective SFO, but we know that without the right resources it leans too heavily on big accountancy firms. There have been rumours recently of a link with a whistleblower that are interesting and very worrying indeed, so will he look into this?

Health and Social Care: Life Sciences and Medical Research (19 Jun 2018)

Barry Sheerman: Will the Secretary of State consider West Yorkshire in particular? We have the universities, the science, the technology and the life sciences; all we need is a new teaching hospital in Huddersfield.

NHS Long-Term Plan: Points of Order (18 Jun 2018)

Barry Sheerman: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I raise it reluctantly, but I feel that I must do so, because it concerns an attack on my personal honour by another Member of Parliament, outside the House. Last Wednesday, Mr Speaker, I was invited, on the “PM” programme, to defend your speakership. The hon. Member for North West Leicestershire (Andrew Bridgen) was asked to speak on the same...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Northern Powerhouse (18 Jun 2018)

Barry Sheerman: Should not the Government Front-Bench team learn this truth: that since the departure of the former Chancellor of the Exchequer, there has been no vision, no leadership and no result for the northern powerhouse? Can the Minister not provide some real leadership and let us catch up with some of these soft people in the south of England and London who get all the investment?

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (18 Jun 2018)

Barry Sheerman: Thank you, Mr Speaker. Will the Secretary of State urgently give local authorities new powers and new resources to tackle the tide of plastic and other waste that is engulfing our towns, cities and countryside?

Galileo Programme (14 Jun 2018)

Barry Sheerman: Surely the Minister understands the size—18 hugely expensive satellites and so many years of research and development—of the Galileo project? My contacts in Cambridge say it would be catastrophic for us to be excluded, not just because of security and defence but for international air travel and much else. He must not underestimate how damaging this is. It is a symptom of leaving...

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (14 Jun 2018)

Barry Sheerman: May I ask the Secretary of State directly whether he thinks that he and his team have the right level of competencies to conduct these difficult negotiations? Is not it about time that he thought very carefully about bringing in some new talent? I would suggest perhaps David Miliband, Gordon Brown and even the former Chancellor of the Exchequer. They might actually help him do a job that...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Sirius Minerals Polyhalite Project (12 Jun 2018)

Barry Sheerman: I worked for some years in the chemical industry, so let us talk in real terms. We are talking about potash, and as one of the biggest reserves of potash in Europe, this business is seriously important. On a day like today, when we face the ruination of Brexit, when my local engineering companies are desperate about losing their markets in Europe and when Ministers are resigning, it is vital...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Science, Technology and Innovation Investment (12 Jun 2018)

Barry Sheerman: No mention of Galileo—not one word.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (12 Jun 2018)

Barry Sheerman: I know that the Secretary of State is an honourable man. He is the Business Secretary. If we have a hard Brexit, British business will be devastated. Will he join us today in voting to keep us in the single market?

G7 (11 Jun 2018)

Barry Sheerman: Does the Prime Minister agree that all of us who believe in international peace, prosperity and security—and hope that they will continue—want the G7 and other global international institutions to prosper? But are not her Government, just like the Trump Government, not trusted any longer in partnerships, in the European Union, in NATO or in the G7, because they are driven by an...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Security Threat: Russia (11 Jun 2018)

Barry Sheerman: What discussions he had with other NATO member states on the potential security threat posed by Russia.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Security Threat: Russia (11 Jun 2018)

Barry Sheerman: I tabled this question before the disastrous consequences of the failure of the G7 in Canada. Does it not seem as though this country is back in the 1939—isolated from Europe, with NATO under threat and with a big gulf between us and our traditional United States ally? What is the Secretary of State going to do about it?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Topical Questions (11 Jun 2018)

Barry Sheerman: If he will make a statement on his departmental responsibilities.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Topical Questions (11 Jun 2018)

Barry Sheerman: The Secretary of State just confessed to being a blunt-speaking Yorkshireman, so will he give me a straight answer? He must be reeling from the events at the G7 in Canada. Are we prepared and would this country be able to defend itself if America takes its bat home and leaves NATO? Is he talking to the French and the Germans about this?
