School Pupils with Allergies — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (30 Nov 2023)

Jon Cruddas: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Rutland and Melton (Alicia Kearns); that was an excellent contribution and I associate myself with everything she said. I congratulate the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon) on securing the debate, as is customary in these proceedings. In this instance, my congratulations are about more than simply adhering to the parliamentary protocols,...

Havering Council: Funding (28 Nov 2023)

Jon Cruddas: I beg to move, That this House has considered funding for Havering Council. This afternoon, I want to: highlight the financial situation facing the London Borough of Havering; ask for help and support from the Government; request a joint approach to remedying the situation; and offset the dangers of a section 114 report by the council’s chief financial officer, which would effectively...

Havering Council: Funding (28 Nov 2023)

Jon Cruddas: I am not playing pass the parcel here; it seems to me that, objectively—all parties can agree—there is a structural problem that is escalating across the length and breadth of this country. Havering is where the rubber hits the wall, in terms of the escalating demographic changes, especially with young people set against the long-term legacy of an older community, and this one-two punch...

Food Labelling and Allergies — [Sir Graham Brady in the Chair] (15 May 2023)

Jon Cruddas: What we are talking about today matters a great deal to a great many people. Millions across the country suffer from some allergic condition: it is estimated that 44% of adults and 50% of children in the UK have one or more allergic disorders. While the prevalence, severity and complexity of allergies have increased on a global scale over the past 60 years, UK rates are among the highest in...

Food Labelling and Allergies — [Sir Graham Brady in the Chair] (15 May 2023)

Jon Cruddas: I will come on to that point. There have been 20 years of reports that agree about a common platform for policy change, and there is a unanimity across the community. It is bewildering that over the past 20 years, Governments have not responded in a proactive way, although over the past 18 months there have been a few changes, which I will come to later. The need for an allergy tsar is...

Food Labelling and Allergies — [Sir Graham Brady in the Chair] (15 May 2023)

Jon Cruddas: I agree. I would suggest that that is part of the lack of an overall strategy and of key responsibilities at national level for making people aware about the differences and the public health needs across all our communities in every constituency that we represent here in Parliament. The second part of the proposal is a national allergy action plan, which would join up GP and hospital allergy...

Backbench Business: Allergy Awareness Week — [Rushanara Ali in the Chair] (11 May 2023)

Jon Cruddas: I thank the Minister and my hon. Friend the Member for Bristol South (Karin Smyth) for their positive words, as well as others who contributed to the debate. It seems that across the political aisle there is common agreement about the escalating problem and the need for viable remedies, as well as a basic right to proper care for all our fellow citizens experiencing those problems. They...

Backbench Business: Allergy Awareness Week — [Rushanara Ali in the Chair] (11 May 2023)

Jon Cruddas: I beg to move, That this House has considered Allergy Awareness Week. This afternoon I will raise a number of points about improving allergy services in the NHS, but first I thank the Backbench Business Committee for granting time for the debate. What we are talking about matters to an awful lot of people. Millions across the country suffer from at least one allergy. It is estimated that 44%...

Human Rights Legislation Reform — [Yvonne Fovargue in the Chair] (24 Oct 2022)

Jon Cruddas: I welcome the petition and I congratulate those who organised and signed it. It requests that the proposed reform of the Human Rights Act be withdrawn. However, that demand appears to have been somewhat overtaken by events, so the first question to ask is whether the petitioners’ objectives remain valid. As we know, politics moves pretty quickly, and the proposed reforms have been...

Human Rights Legislation Reform — [Yvonne Fovargue in the Chair] (24 Oct 2022)

Jon Cruddas: I will come to that when I mention different approaches to economic and social rights, which should be the cornerstone of an alternative approach to a new Bill of Rights in the UK. That goes with the grain of what is happening in Scotland, in contrast to the objectives of the present Government in Westminster. To put it charitably, the Government are a total shambles, and even compared to...

Irish Diaspora in Britain (17 Mar 2022)

Jon Cruddas: Like all Members, I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Rochdale (Tony Lloyd) for securing this debate, which is possibly the first Backbench Business debate in this Chamber to focus specifically on the Irish in Britain. I have known him for more than 25 years and am acutely aware of his political skills, but to secure this debate on St Patrick’s Day, in the middle of the Cheltenham...

Multi-hospital NHS Trusts: Transportation: Allergy Research and Treatments: Government Support ( 9 Mar 2022)

Jon Cruddas: I rise to make a couple of quick points. I commend my hon. Friend the Member for City of Chester (Christian Matheson) on his outstanding speech. He mentioned the scale of allergic disease and the epidemic that we are witnessing across the country, and he listed some of the tragic deaths from anaphylaxis. While welcoming Natasha’s law, he acknowledged how much more needs to be done on...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Allergies: Health Services ( 2 Mar 2022)

Jon Cruddas: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, whether his Department has had recent discussions with NHS England on the establishment of a National Clinical Director for Allergy of State for Health and Social Care.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Allergies: Health Services ( 2 Mar 2022)

Beam Park Station (11 Jan 2022)

Jon Cruddas: I beg to move, That this House has considered plans for Beam Park Station. This afternoon, I will make a series of points relating to the failure to proceed with the proposed station at Beam Park in my constituency. The station is essential for a number of reasons. First, it will successfully complete the Beam Park housing development and wider regeneration across South Havering, and Barking...

Beam Park Station (11 Jan 2022)

Jon Cruddas: I completely agree. I am glad the hon. Gentleman has agreed with what I have said. I am not sure that he will agree with all the comments I will make, but I take on board the importance of cross-party support for this project. Hopefully, the problems we have been experiencing since the back end of last year can be rectified. I hope that the Government will support the GLA and the boroughs of...

Beam Park Station (11 Jan 2022)

Jon Cruddas: I totally agree with the hon. Member. I am glad that so far we are in agreement on the state of affairs and the need for the issue to be rectified. The Beam Park development alone consists of 3,200 housing units for 13,000 new residents through a partnership agreement with Countryside Properties and London & Quadrant. However, the scheme was always conditional on a new station being provided....

Beam Park Station (11 Jan 2022)

Jon Cruddas: I generally agree on the need for cross-party collaboration. I hope that we can work with the Department for Transport to resolve this matter, in collaboration with the local authorities in Havering and in Barking and Dagenham, and the GLA. However, we also have to understand why we got to the present situation. How could the then Mayor and council agree the project and assume that their own...
