Police Funding Settlement (13 Dec 2018)

Adrian Bailey: Over the last few years, the West Midlands police force has lost £175 million and 2,000 officers as a result of Government cuts. Violent crime and murders are up, and in the past 10 years the number of arrests has fallen by 50%. I am being lobbied by the public because of their frustration about the lack of action when they report crimes, and I am being lobbied by the police because, as good...

Business of the House: [3rd Allotted Day] (6 Dec 2018)

Adrian Bailey: I represent a Black country constituency that is heavily dependent on manufacturing companies, the business models of which are deeply integrated with Europe. It is also a constituency that voted overwhelmingly for Brexit and, out of respect and having voted for the referendum, I felt that I had to follow the logic in that decision through. I voted for the triggering of article 50 to be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Hazara Population in Afghanistan (4 Dec 2018)

Adrian Bailey: In the light of the recent Taliban offensive and the atrocities that occurred as a result and bearing in mind the deep insecurity currently felt by the Hazara community, what additional support is NATO’s resolute support mission contributing to the Hazaras’ safety?

Backbench Business (29 Nov 2018)

Adrian Bailey: Before I call the next speaker, may I make it clear that I want to call the Front-Bench spokesperson at 4 o’clock? You can do the arithmetic as well as I can. If all speakers on the Back Benches take that into consideration, I will be grateful.

Health and Social Care: Leaving the EU: Medicines and Medical Equipment (27 Nov 2018)

Adrian Bailey: In the event of no deal, what steps would be taken to secure the supply of medicines beyond the six-week stockpile that has been recommended by the Government to the drug companies?

Fireworks: Public Sales — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (26 Nov 2018)

Adrian Bailey: I do not think that anyone would say that the police do not investigate. We are saying that the level of resources is such that they are not often able to carry out the sort of investigation that enables them to identify the perpetrators and bring them to justice. Can the Minister give me an indication of just how many investigations have taken place, how many fixed penalty notices have been...

Fireworks: Public Sales — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (26 Nov 2018)

Adrian Bailey: May I express my pleasure at serving under your chairmanship, Mr Howarth? I also congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Warrington North (Helen Jones) on securing the debate and on the comprehensive way in which she outlined the issues that have generated this petition and the public support for it. I was sitting slightly uncomfortably when the hon. Member for Cheltenham (Alex Chalk)...

Science and Technology Committee (15 Nov 2018)

Adrian Bailey: We begin with the Select Committee statement. Norman Lamb will speak on the publication of the Eleventh Report of the Science and Technology Committee, “Evidence-based early years intervention”, for up to 10 minutes, during which no interventions may be taken. At the conclusion of his statement I will call Members to put questions on the subject of the statement, and call Norman Lamb to...

Science and Technology Committee (15 Nov 2018)

Adrian Bailey: I now invite questions. I stress that they should be questions, not speeches.

EU Exit Negotiations (15 Nov 2018)

Adrian Bailey: Uncertainty about our future trading relationships with the EU is undermining British business and having a chilling effect on our economic growth. There is absolutely nothing in this so-called deal that dispels or resolves those issues. Will the Prime Minister recognise that, instead of negotiating with the economic kamikaze tendency in her own party, she needs to reach out to this side of...

Police Pension Liabilities (6 Nov 2018)

Adrian Bailey: In the west midlands, murders are up by 33% in the last year and violent crime is up by 20%. Only last week, I went out on patrol with police in the west midlands, and I found that dedicated, devoted public servants are getting desperate because of the lack of support and resources. These cuts will make their position even worse and more demoralising. Will the Minister impress on the Treasury...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Leaving the EU: No Deal (6 Nov 2018)

Adrian Bailey: What assessment he has made of the potential effect on the OBR’s Budget 2018 forecasts of the UK leaving the EU without a deal.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Leaving the EU: No Deal (6 Nov 2018)

Adrian Bailey: The Chancellor’s Budget measures were based on OBR assumptions of an orderly withdrawal from the EU and a 21-month continuation in the customs union. In the event of a no deal, will the Minister share with the House the assessment he has made of the potential decline in tax revenues and consequential changes to his tax and spending plans in the Budget?

Health and Social Care Committee: Future of Legal Aid (1 Nov 2018)

Adrian Bailey: I understand the Minister has an enormous number of points to respond to, but if she could give Mr Andy Slaughter a chance to wind up the debate, I am sure we would all appreciate it.

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (31 Oct 2018)

Adrian Bailey: As a west midlands Member of Parliament for a constituency that has a long manufacturing tradition but is still heavily dependent on the success of our motor industry in general and Jaguar Land Rover in particular, I want to add to the thrust of the questions put by my hon. Friends the Members for Birmingham, Northfield (Richard Burden) and for Coventry South (Mr Cunningham) and ask about the...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (30 Oct 2018)

Adrian Bailey: I acknowledge the Secretary of State’s contribution to funding the Midland Metro Hospital, which is very important to people in the Black country. However, given that NHS hospital trusts have cumulative debts of around £7.5 billion plus a further £5 billion or so of other debts, can he reassure us that the £20.5 billion will be used not just to pay debts but to provide extra services?

Exiting the European Union: Customs Arrangements (25 Oct 2018)

Adrian Bailey: It has been reported that, in the event of a no-deal Brexit and chaos at the Channel ports, the Government will need to charter additional vessels to bring in food and medicine. What is the assessment of cost for both the Government and industry? What capacity is there in alternative ports to do that?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (16 Oct 2018)

Adrian Bailey: The chief executive of Jaguar Land Rover has said that a bad or no-deal Brexit would cost the company more than £1 billion a year and threaten its future investment in the UK. Can the Minister explain how that can be avoided if the UK is outside the customs union?
