Health and Social Care: National Food Crime Unit (6 Feb 2018)

Barry Sheerman: May I send a brief message of congratulation to the Secretary of State for his rapid response to President Trump’s remarks about the values of the NHS? As chair of the Westminster Commission on Autism, let me now ask the Secretary of State a serious question. We are about to produce a report on the fake medicine that is sold to families with an autistic child. When the report is...

Health and Social Care: National Food Crime Unit (6 Feb 2018)

Barry Sheerman: It is related to the Food Standards Agency.

Rail Update (5 Feb 2018)

Barry Sheerman: Is the Secretary of State aware that I am very disappointed he did not inform me he was attending a well-publicised meeting in the centre of Huddersfield in my constituency on Friday? He had the opportunity to talk to me and some of my constituents about the deterioration of the east coast line over recent years and the fact that not only the east coast line but the network across the north...

Rail Update (5 Feb 2018)

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

Rail Update (5 Feb 2018)

Barry Sheerman: Is it not right that Members should be told of another Member visiting their constituency?

Capita: Business of the House (1 Feb 2018)

Barry Sheerman: Thank you so much, Mr Speaker. You took me by surprise. In the old and less enlightened days when I was at primary school, we could have a good old pinch and a punch for the first day of the month—

Capita: Business of the House (1 Feb 2018)

Barry Sheerman: No, it was not in Queen Victoria’s time. May we have an early debate so that many of us can give a good pinch and a punch to the private sector partnerships that benight so many hospitals in our land? So many of us want a new deal for our hospitals and health sector, but we are being dragged down by private finance initiatives that were badly negotiated many years ago. Let’s have...

Capita (1 Feb 2018)

Barry Sheerman: Capita is a significant employer in Huddersfield in its shared transport business. It has a very important role in gas safety for the Health and Safety Executive. It is a very important company. Nobody on the Labour Benches wants to see it fail; like all businesses, we want to it to succeed. There is nothing wrong with a public-private partnership: what is important is getting the contract...

Exiting the European Union: Negotiation Outcomes (1 Feb 2018)

Barry Sheerman: I know that the Secretary of State is an early riser, but did any of the other Ministers listen to the former Chancellor, George Osborne, on Radio 4 this morning? What are they going to say about what he says about the fact that this country, especially the manufacturing sector, is doomed outside the European Union?

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (1 Feb 2018)

Barry Sheerman: Poor old George Osborne, not mentioned at all.

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill (30 Jan 2018)

Barry Sheerman: In passing, I congratulate the right hon. Lady on becoming a dame. Is it not a fact that she and I have campaigned against this project for a very long time, on the grounds that it will not deliver, it will never deliver, by 2033, and it will superseded by different forms of transportation by 2033, and also on the grounds that £100 billion of national treasure that could have...

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill (30 Jan 2018)

Barry Sheerman: I was in Committee upstairs, and came down particularly to hear the hon. Gentleman’s speech. He knows that I passionately oppose HS2. I applaud his opposition, and would love to make the visit to his constituency to see the degradation, because £100 billion of expenditure should go not on this, but on a decent railway service across the north of England.

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill (30 Jan 2018)

Barry Sheerman: I rarely agree with the hon. Member for Stone (Sir William Cash), but I do in this case, about this being a vanity project. Does the hon. Gentleman accept that this is not really about connectivity or helping local industry? As he says, it will damage local industry. The French experience already shows that it does not liberate and rejuvenate the provincial cities and towns. It actually...

Backbench Business: Criminal Justice System: Adults with Autism — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (30 Jan 2018)

Barry Sheerman: We are all on a learning curve today. Back in the mists of time, I was Roy Hattersley’s deputy as a shadow Police and Prisons Minister, so we all have our learning curve. Does the Minister agree that the real change that has happened recently, for all sorts of reasons, has been a great improvement in the joining up of children’s services, running across all services? As my hon....

Backbench Business: Criminal Justice System: Adults with Autism — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (30 Jan 2018)

Barry Sheerman: We are coming to a very sensitive part of the Minister’s speech. I am sure he will turn to the international dimension. Has he any update for us on the Lauri Love case? Many of us in Parliament are fighting to save that young man from being taken to the United States, to a hostile environment, where he might well commit suicide.

Backbench Business: Criminal Justice System: Adults with Autism — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (30 Jan 2018)

Barry Sheerman: Just on that point, I have the privilege of chairing the Westminster Commission on Autism. I do not know whether my hon. Friend saw its recent report on the barriers to healthcare. All these institutions, whether they are in criminal justice, health or whatever, have to give special consideration to people on the autism spectrum. Those environments can be very hostile because of the nature...

Backbench Business: Criminal Justice System: Adults with Autism — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (30 Jan 2018)

Barry Sheerman: Is it not the case that all the institutions have to provide training on people on the autism spectrum? I do not know whether the hon. Gentleman heard reference in the debate last week to Alex Henry. He is an autistic young man. A boy who was with him stabbed someone, and Alex Henry is now in prison for 19 years. He was an easily led young man on the autism spectrum. People on the autism...

Backbench Business: Criminal Justice System: Adults with Autism — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (30 Jan 2018)

Barry Sheerman: My hon. Friend is making such a good speech, which has stimulated me to remind him that the court system very often derides professional opinion about the facts of autism. Professor Baron-Cohen of the University of Cambridge is probably the best-known expert on autism in the country. In the recent case of Lauri Love, who is in danger of being sent to the United States where he will almost...

Leaving the Eu: Economic Analysis (30 Jan 2018)

Barry Sheerman: How dare the Minister suggest to my constituents that ignorance is bliss! My constituents were misled by the lies on the side of the Brexit bus. My constituents are now being deprived of the information that suggests that, up and down the north of England and in Yorkshire in particular, jobs and employment will plunge if we go out on the worst terms. Will he apologise to my constituents for...
