Henry Bellingham: What steps his Department is taking to help to defeat terrorism in Somalia.
Henry Bellingham: I join the Minister in offering heartfelt sympathy and prayers to President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo and his people at this dreadful time. This was the most lethal bomb ever let off in Africa, yet it has received minimal coverage in the west. What more can we do to redouble not only security input, but our development efforts, so that we can give the Somali people hope for the future and...
Henry Bellingham: What steps she is taking to reduce knife crime.
Henry Bellingham: I thank the Home Secretary for that reply. Does she agree that, one of the challenges here is that some of the most lethal knives are actually in people’s kitchens up and down the land, which makes them very difficult to regulate. On sentencing criminals, will she tell the House how many people have been convicted under the so-called Nick de Bois amendment of “two strikes and...
Henry Bellingham: What recent assessment he has made of the security situation in Northern Ireland.
Henry Bellingham: As part of the security review, will the Minister look at the case of Dennis Hutchings and other veterans, who have been hounded and charged in respect of alleged shootings nearly 50 years ago? There is no new evidence, so surely the time has come to restore humanity and natural justice, and bring in some form of time limitation.
Henry Bellingham: I am grateful to the Minister for his statement. I would like to reinforce his heartfelt comments about all the personnel who have been involved in sorting out this horrendous damage. For example, in the BVI and Anguilla, there has been total destruction of all the schools. All 15 schools in the BVI have been destroyed. Does he agree that there is a need for a comprehensive, five-year...
Henry Bellingham: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Thirsk and Malton (Kevin Hollinrake) on securing this debate. Hon. Members have given very good examples of the ways in which various agents exploit tenants. The hon. Members for Mitcham and Morden (Siobhain McDonagh) and for Dulwich and West Norwood (Helen Hayes) raised some dreadful examples. I do not doubt that there is a problem in some parts...
Henry Bellingham: What recent assessment he has made of employment trends in Wales.
Henry Bellingham: Does the Minister agree that, post-Brexit, it is essential to maintain the current level of rural agricultural support to Wales? What will he do to try to ensure that that happens?
Henry Bellingham: What steps the Government are taking to tackle electoral fraud.
Henry Bellingham: Is the Minister aware that there is now clear evidence that many students boasted on social media of voting twice—once at university, and once by post at home? Surely this is straightforward electoral fraud.
Henry Bellingham: Further to my earlier question about students fraudulently voting twice, may I ask whether, when my hon. Friend meets representatives of the Electoral Commission, he will ensure that the police are involved as well?
Henry Bellingham: What steps the Crown Prosecution Service is taking to support action against terrorism.
Henry Bellingham: While the 400 or so radicalised British Muslims who are still fighting for ISIS in Syria are naive, many of them pose a great danger to the UK. We know their names, so what steps are being taken to prepare for prosecutions?
Henry Bellingham: What discussions he has had with the Secretary of State for International Trade on the potential effect of the great repeal Bill on negotiating future trade terms with the EU.
Henry Bellingham: I thank the Minister for that comprehensive reply. When it comes to these key negotiations, is it his intention to recruit and embed outside talent and expertise from different sectors such as law, insurance and financial services to reinforce and bolster the Government’s own civil service teams? Has this outreach programme started?
Henry Bellingham: What the timetable is for the ban on microbeads in cosmetics and personal care products.
