Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 Jun 2014)

Gerry Sutcliffe: Is the Prime Minister aware of the alleged mis-selling of cash-back warranties by Scottish Power? Does it concern him as much as it concerns me that one of the UK’s largest utility companies has allegedly tried to evade paying back money to 625,000 people, many of whom are the poorest in our society? I wonder whether he would be prepared to meet me and a cross-party delegation to get to the...

Business of the House: Tobacco Products (Standardised Packaging) (3 Apr 2014)

Gerry Sutcliffe: I am a non-smoker and I do not want to see young people smoking, but I have concerns about standardised packaging, for two reasons. One is illicit trade, and I will give evidence on that and perhaps meet the Minister and her colleagues about that illicit trade and its impact on our constituencies. Also, I represent a number of print workers. There is an issue about jobs and the effects on the...

Business of the House (3 Apr 2014)

Gerry Sutcliffe: I do not know whether the Leader of the House has had an opportunity this week to read a report from StreetGames about the lack of physical activity among young people in particular.

Public Bill Committee: Intellectual Property Bill [Lords]: New Clause 6 - Lookalikes (30 Jan 2014)

Gerry Sutcliffe: I will try to be brief. My hon. Friend is right about search engines, and we have already mentioned the DVLA. Since Tuesday, a large number of Members have recognised the problem, so it would be welcome if the Government took the opportunity to put it right. On Second Reading, my hon. Friend the Member for Lewisham West and Penge talked about Henderson’s sauce, which caused consternation in...

Public Bill Committee: Intellectual Property Bill [Lords]: New Clause 1 - Director General of Intellectual Property Rights (30 Jan 2014)

Gerry Sutcliffe: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Turner. Where does intellectual property lie, whose responsibly is it, who should be the lead person? My hon. Friend the Member for Hartlepool, in moving new clause 1, said that we should have a director general. I am agnostic about that. It is a good idea. It develops the idea that somebody needs to be responsible. We have referred before...

Public Bill Committee: Intellectual Property Bill [Lords]: New Clause 1 - Director General of Intellectual Property Rights (30 Jan 2014)

Gerry Sutcliffe: The Minister is right to point out that the creative industries council exists, and I welcome that, but there is a feeling that its membership is too large and that it does not get down to the detail of issues. IP is sometimes lost in the framework of the discussions around the council. For me, the issue is that IP is becoming more important. I accept what the Minister has said about the...

MR John Elam (28 Jan 2014)

Gerry Sutcliffe: I am grateful for the opportunity to have this Adjournment debate this evening. I am pleased to see the Minister for Policing, Criminal Justice and Victims in his place. I do not expect him to be able to respond in detail to the important issues that I will raise, but perhaps while he listens to my speech he will reflect on what advice he can give on the best course of action to take the...

Kings Science Academy (Bradford) (28 Jan 2014)

Gerry Sutcliffe: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for the work he has been doing on this case, which has affected the credibility of some of the free schools in Bradford—notwithstanding the fact that there are some good ones. We had to get the information about when the police were informed from the police themselves, not from the DFE. We were asking questions, either written questions or questions on...
