Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Remploy (10 Dec 2012)

Gerry Sutcliffe: Before I became an MP I used to represent Remploy workers, and I saw the special nature of Remploy factories. We lost our factory in Bradford. The hon. Member for Shipley (Philip Davies) tried to oppose that closure, as I did, and 90% of the people who were there are not in employment. If this is about consultation, as the Minister says, will she ensure, as she tracks these people, that if...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Spending on Sport (Gender Audit) (22 Nov 2012)

Gerry Sutcliffe: Is it important to build on the success of the Olympics, particularly in participation, but the reason a survey is important is that we are seeing a drop in the number of girls involved in school sport, so there is a need to measure what is happening. I think the Secretary of State should speak with the Secretary of State for Education, who does not seem to like sport.

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Trade Union Facility Time (5 Sep 2012)

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Child Care (3 Sep 2012)

Gerry Sutcliffe: First, I hope that we are going to get an apology from Ministers for the way in which they have treated the One in a Million school in Bradford. The Minister will be aware of the Daycare Trust’s survey that came out during the summer, which showed an 18% increase over 12 months in the cost of a week’s holiday child care. What are Ministers going to do to support hard-working families and...

Opposition Day — [1st Allotted Day]: Ministerial Code (Culture Secretary) (13 Jun 2012)

Gerry Sutcliffe: We are having this debate because it presents the only opportunity that the Opposition will have to try to get to the bottom of this matter. It is no good Government Members’ saying that it was wrong for us to table the motion. I agree with the Chairman of the Public Administration Committee, the hon. Member for Harwich and North Essex (Mr Jenkin). Perhaps when we were in government we...

Opposition Day — [1st Allotted Day]: Ministerial Code (Culture Secretary) (13 Jun 2012)

Gerry Sutcliffe: I do not accept that. I am not a lawyer, but I have had 18 years’ experience in the House of Commons, and I recall similar situations in which, unfortunately—and I mean unfortunately—Ministers have been put in the stressful position of having to defend themselves. Again unfortunately, on occasion over the years they have not been able to defend themselves, and have gone. What was...

Opposition Day — [1st Allotted Day]: Ministerial Code (Culture Secretary) (13 Jun 2012)

Gerry Sutcliffe: My right hon. Friend the Member for Southampton, Itchen raised that point in his questions to the Secretary of State. He also raised the issue of the relationship between the Secretary of State and the special adviser. I am beginning to support the ideas of the Chairman of the Public Administration Committee. If an independent adviser had had an opportunity to see that there was a...

Opposition Day — [1st Allotted Day]: Ministerial Code (Culture Secretary) (13 Jun 2012)

Gerry Sutcliffe: The Secretary of State was not asked any pertinent questions at the Leveson inquiry about the issues we are raising today. On the subject of Leveson, we will have to wait and see the conclusions, but we all hope it makes recommendations that we can all support. The cost of that inquiry is also in the public mind, however. The Prime Minister put it across that Leveson would deal with this...

Opposition Day — [1st Allotted Day]: Ministerial Code (Culture Secretary) (13 Jun 2012)

Gerry Sutcliffe: I understand the argument the hon. Gentleman makes. The Secretary of State for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport should have a view, but was he not put in a difficult position by the Prime Minister when the problem with the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills occurred? Was he not an inappropriate and wrong person to put in charge of that process?

Ilias Ali (24 May 2012)

Gerry Sutcliffe: I am delighted that Mr Speaker has given me the opportunity to raise this important subject, and that the hon. Member for Bedford (Richard Fuller) and my hon. Friends the Members for Poplar and Limehouse (Jim Fitzpatrick) and for Luton South (Gavin Shuker) are here to discuss it. I applied for this debate following a meeting in Bradford with members of the Bangladeshi community. While they...

Ilias Ali (24 May 2012)

Gerry Sutcliffe: I am not suggesting that. That is precisely the difficulty that exists in Bangladesh at the moment: there is no clarity about who is responsible, on one side or the other. I just want to highlight the fact that these people are missing, whatever the circumstances. It is the duty of the Government of Bangladesh to investigate those issues. I hope that the Minister—I am delighted that he is...
