Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Devolved Administrations: Brexit (11 Oct 2017)

Jon Trickett: The Chancellor has written today that the Government must be prepared for every outcome from Brexit, but that he will not make resources available for a no-deal scenario. As well as managing the civil service, the Cabinet Office is responsible for co-ordinating Government policy. Whatever the Chancellor’s views, will the Minister now indicate that there is sufficient civil service...

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Devolved Administrations: Brexit (11 Oct 2017)

Jon Trickett: The truth is there is no contingency planning for a no-deal Brexit, and that explains the breakdown of policy co-ordination, for which the Minister is supposedly responsible, right at the heart of Government. The Government are a shambles and wholly divided. We have a Prime Minister who said that no deal was better than a bad deal, a Chancellor who now says he will not fund a no-deal scenario...

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Public Sector Pay (5 Jul 2017)

Jon Trickett: While cutting the real-terms pay of nurses, the police, fire officers and others, the Prime Minister has broken her own £72,000 cap that she advocated for the salaries of political appointees. A third of all her special advisers earn more than that, and her two ill-fated chiefs of staff earned almost double that amount. How can the Minister justify pay restraint for nurses when there is...

Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee (20 Apr 2017)

Jon Trickett: Thank you, Mr Speaker, for the fairness you have always shown me in this and previous Parliaments. The report is clear: the referendum was called to call the bluff of the Brexiteers, civil service neutrality was clearly jeopardised and, as the Chair of the Committee said, there was no preparation for the vote to leave. Is not it obvious that the referendum was held not in the national...

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Domestic Abuse Victims: Voting (22 Mar 2017)

Jon Trickett: It is obviously welcome that the Government are seeking to protect the voting rights of domestic violence survivors by making anonymity easier—by the way, the announcement of a one-off cash injection for specialist refuges is also welcome, although much more is needed. However, people cannot easily vote if they have no fixed abode. The truth is that Women’s Aid estimates that one...

Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee (16 Mar 2017)

Jon Trickett: I will follow the strictures to be brief. On Iraq, the British Cabinet, the overwhelming majority in the House, much of the media, the three Select Committees, the civil service, the MOD, and the security services all came to the same false conclusion, resulting in a disastrous military adventure and deaths of hundreds of thousands of people. Subsequently, the usual and predictable...

Business without Debate: High Speed 2: Yorkshire (6 Feb 2017)

Jon Trickett: On this side.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Industrial Strategy (13 Sep 2016)

Jon Trickett: I join others in welcoming those on the Front Bench and the creation of a Department that is going to deal with industrial strategy. The country is badly unbalanced at the moment and we will support any realistic thorough-going industrial strategy that is developed. We know how the strategy has gone over the summer—BHS has gone bust, with 11.000 jobs gone. Sports Direct is paying less...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Specialist Domestic Violence Refuges (6 Jun 2016)

Jon Trickett: I welcome what the Secretary of State has just said about the statement and about the additional money, but a recent Women’s Aid report stated: “One major challenge facing specialist refuge provision is the awarding of tenders to large generic providers”. The report also includes the shocking fact that one in six specialist refuges has closed since 2010, and it states that...

Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (21 Mar 2016)

Jon Trickett: How time flies. It was only late last year that the Secretary of State was buoyed up by the Chancellor’s announcement that he had found a few extra billion quid down the back of his settee. The Secretary of State came to the House and offered no less than a guaranteed budget for every council. Sadly, as the Financial Times put it recently, the good times lasted only about a month. By...

Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (21 Mar 2016)

Jon Trickett: The hon. Gentleman will not get away with that. The truth is that this Chancellor has been in charge of the nation’s finances for six years and he now wants to wash his hands of the mess he is making of the economy. I was talking about an ethical hole at the Government’s core. We still remember Conservative Members cheering last Wednesday. They thought it was okay to rob the...

Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (21 Mar 2016)

Jon Trickett: My hon. Friend is right. I shall come to that point shortly.

Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (21 Mar 2016)

Jon Trickett: I shall make a little progress, if I may, as a lot of people want to speak in the debate. I was talking about the unfair distribution of cuts. The three most affluent areas in the country have had the lowest amount of cuts to their Government support since 2010, yet lo and behold, the same three affluent councils then received an extra £33.5 million from the Secretary of State’s...

Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (21 Mar 2016)

Jon Trickett: I believe the hon. Gentleman said North Yorkshire. If I remember correctly, North Yorkshire got £10 million in transitional funds. West Yorkshire and south Yorkshire got not a single penny. Not a single council in the whole of west and south Yorkshire got a single penny, yet the cuts that west Yorkshire councils faced were much more acute than those that North Yorkshire had faced.

Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (21 Mar 2016)

Jon Trickett: Not a peep from the Secretary of State so far. Unfairness and inequality run through the DNA of this Government in every Department. Local government provides services that make the lives of the most vulnerable in our society bearable, yet it is suffering the most draconian cuts.

Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (21 Mar 2016)

Jon Trickett: I shall make some progress now. The same people who rely on the personal independence payments, which the Government so recently wanted to cut, rely on home helps and community services, yet nowhere is the pressure greater than the growing crisis being experienced by social care. The Tory-controlled Local Government Association estimates that despite the Government’s measures there is a...

Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (21 Mar 2016)

Jon Trickett: Of course. The Tories are not interested in looking after ordinary people and small businesses. They are interested in directing money at the privileged few. Let me turn briefly to the subject of devolution, which the Secretary of State mentioned. In his Budget statement the Chancellor announced a number of devolution deals, about which concern has been expressed in all parts of the House....

Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (21 Mar 2016)

Jon Trickett: I agree entirely with my hon. Friend’s point. Let me make some progress on devolution. The average pot of money available to the metro mayors appears to be about £30 million a year, but that is dwarfed by the severity of the cuts that each of their councils has suffered. Top-down devolution, compounded by financial injustice, simply will not work as an enduring solution. Labour...

Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (21 Mar 2016)

Jon Trickett: I think the Secretary of State should have stayed in this seat rather than make that intervention. It is time for the Secretary of State to stand up to the demands of an unreasonable Chancellor, rather than standing by while communities are decimated. If he will not, we will. Several hon. Members rose—

Local Government Finance (8 Feb 2016)

Jon Trickett: I thank the Secretary of State for his courtesy in providing me with an advance copy of his statement. We welcome some of the announcements made this afternoon. It is clearly a good thing that more money is being provided to rural communities that are particularly hard hit, but will he explain exactly where the additional funding is coming from? It sounded like a sum of just over £200...
