Orders of the Day — Export Control Bill (9 Jul 2001)

Kevan Jones: Thank you, Mr. Deputy Speaker, for calling me to make my maiden speech in this debate. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Wolverhampton, South-West (Rob Marris) on his first contribution to the House.

Public Bill Committee: Export Control Bill: Schedule - Purposes for making orders under section 1(1) or 2(1) (17 Jul 2001)

Public Bill Committee: Export Control Bill: Clause 9 - Annual reports (19 Jul 2001)

Kevan Jones: I welcome the hon. Gentleman's openness.

The United States has a successful—

Public Bill Committee: Export Control Bill: Clause 9 - Annual reports (19 Jul 2001)

Kevan Jones: I just want to make the point that the report must have openness and transparency; otherwise, it will be a neutered report and will gather dust, as other reports have done, which was shown by the hon. Member for Aldershot not having read the relevant part of it. The important thing is to get that balance right. Clearly, the United States has a successful arms export industry, but it also has...

Public Bill Committee: Export Control: Clause 2 - Purposes of orders under section 1(1) or 2(1) (16 Oct 2001)

Kevan Jones: I have sympathy with the concerns of the hon. Member for Aldershot, because there have been worries about arrangements made by some companies—for example, Swan Hunter in the north-east, which is now Dutch-owned. We need reassurance from the Minister that these companies are now clearly international and pan-European. I agree with my hon. Friend the Member for Wolverhampton, South-West...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Health Care (Durham) (13 Nov 2001)

Kevan Jones: Does my hon. Friend agree that the success of the North Durham Health Care NHS trust is due, in no small part, to the chairmanship of Mr. Kevin Earley? Does he accept that Mr. Earley's removal from the chairmanship without any local consultation has left the trust leaderless and does nothing to help deliver the good health care that we expect in North Durham?

Orders of the Day — Employment Bill (27 Nov 2001)

Kevan Jones: I declare an interest as a member of the GMB trade union and also as one of its senior officers for 12 years. I, too, welcome the Bill.
