Opposition Day - [4TH Allotted Day]: Armed Forces Pay (1 Nov 2017)

Kevan Jones: No, because I am about to finish. I suggest that the hon. Gentleman look at the black hole that exists in the current Government’s procurement plan. I am not suggesting that it is an in-year black hole; this is about the 10-year equipment plan. The hon. Gentleman may want to look at that, the NAO report and the excellent report out today on how the Government are cannibalising...

Opposition Day - [4TH Allotted Day]: Armed Forces Pay (1 Nov 2017)

Kevan Jones: I think that the hon. Gentleman is being completely disingenuous—

Opposition Day - [4TH Allotted Day]: Armed Forces Pay (1 Nov 2017)

Kevan Jones: The Minister is wrong. The point is that, in any job, people get a pay increase because they are being trained and their ability to serve increases as that goes on. The fact is that the yearly increases my hon. Friend the Member for Llanelli (Nia Griffith) mentioned affect a private’s pay because they affect the levels of the bands and the percentages. He cannot argue that, just...

Kevan Jones: It’s less.

Opposition Day - [4TH Allotted Day]: Armed Forces Pay (1 Nov 2017)

Kevan Jones: Will the Minister give way?

Opposition Day - [4TH Allotted Day]: Armed Forces Pay (1 Nov 2017)

Kevan Jones: I find the comments of Conservative Members quite astonishing, because I remember as a Minister in the Ministry of Defence being harangued by Conservative Members in opposition arguing that we did a bad deal for the armed forces, even though we accepted the pay review body’s recommendation. With regard to the X factor, in 2013 the pay review body chairman was sacked because the Prime...

Opposition Day - [4TH Allotted Day]: Armed Forces Pay (1 Nov 2017)

Kevan Jones: Does my hon. Friend agree that the situation is worse than that? The idea is that the pay review body should be independent and able to make recommendations for Ministers and the Government to look at, but in 2013 the then Prime Minister sacked Alasdair Smith, the chair of the pay review body, because he made recommendations that the Treasury and the Government did not like. Does she agree...

Petition - Save Our Shire Hill Hospital: Mental Health: Pharmacists (25 Oct 2017)

Petition - Save Our Shire Hill Hospital: Mental Health: Pharmacists (25 Oct 2017)

Kevan Jones: As I have said on other occasions, I think that mental health in the workplace is one of the big issues that we do not talk about. I think the hon. Gentleman’s suggestion should be considered, but what struck me about this case was that it involved not a small employer but a huge multinational company, which should have had the capacity within its organisation to provide assistance.

Petition - Save Our Shire Hill Hospital: Mental Health: Pharmacists (25 Oct 2017)

Kevan Jones: I agree with my hon. Friend. I know that she is involved with the Samaritans, and I congratulate her on the work that she does. Yes, there are a lot of tools out there for companies to use, but they must take them seriously rather than treating them as a tick-box exercise. Policies of this kind must actually be used in the workplace, and people must be trained so that if they encounter a...

Petition - Save Our Shire Hill Hospital: Mental Health: Pharmacists (25 Oct 2017)

Kevan Jones: I wish to use tonight’s Adjournment debate to raise the sad case of my constituent Alison Stamps, a 33-year-old pharmacist who sadly took her own life on 25 May 2015. I will outline the circumstances of the case, but will also raise wider concerns that I and her family have around the operation of Boots UK and how it dealt with her death, as well as my broader concerns concerning...
