Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Palestinian Authority (6 Apr 2005)

Kevan Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what his latest assessment is of progress made by the Palestinian Authority in reform of its security apparatus.

Public Bill Committee: Criminal Law (Amendment) (Householder Protection) Bill: Clause 1 - Amendment of the Criminal Law Act 1967 (5 Apr 2005)

Kevan Jones: In the Tony Martin case, surely Mr. Fearon was traumatised by the events. The fact is that Mr. Martin stuck a shotgun in somebody’s back at point-blank range and pulled the trigger. That may deter that individual from intruding again, but surely killing an innocent person in those circumstances does not make it right in a just society.

Written Answers — Health: Scanning (Waiting Times) (5 Apr 2005)

Kevan Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) what discussions took place between his Department and the County Durham and Tees Valley strategic health authority about reducing waiting times for scans in County Durham; (2) what discussions took place between his Department and (a) the Chester-le-Street and Durham primary care trust and (b) Derwentside primary care trust concerning the...

Written Answers — Health: University Hospital, North Durham (5 Apr 2005)

Kevan Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) at what capacity the existing NHS scanner at the University Hospital North Durham was working in each month since April 2004; (2) what the capital costs were of providing the equipment to undertake CT and MRI scans at the University Hospital, North Durham; (3) what the running costs of the equipment used for CT and MRI scans at the University...

Coal Health Claims (22 Mar 2005)

Kevan Jones: I welcome today's announcement on the regulation of claims handlers, although it will take some time to come into effect. Meanwhile, I would like the Minister to urge the Office of Fair Trading and other organisations to act against some of the claim handlers. Will he agree to join me and other Members who are present in meeting the Law Society and other organisations to see what we can do to...

Coal Health Claims (22 Mar 2005)

Kevan Jones: I have enjoyed the Minister's contribution, and I welcome what he has said, but how can the Claims Standards Council have any credibility when organisations such as Freeclaim IDC are founding members? That is not merely akin to giving Dracula the keys to the blood bank; such organisations have been given a say in how to construct the council. It can have no credibility at all if the very...

Coal Health Claims (22 Mar 2005)

Kevan Jones: Too many.

Coal Health Claims (22 Mar 2005)

Kevan Jones: I accept that some of us have a slight advantage over the hon. Gentleman, as we have lived and breathed this issue for a while, but I point out that Capita is not a claims handling company, although I concur with some criticisms of how it handled the coal claims dealt with by the DTI.

Coal Health Claims (22 Mar 2005)

Kevan Jones: Last year in Westminster Hall, I raised the case of a company in Newcastle, Mark Gilbert Morse, which has about 29,000 claims, but has reimbursed only about 50 individuals. I have tried to urge the Law Society to trawl that company's books to see who it has not paid back. Would the hon. Gentleman support the Government taking action to force that company and others to pay back every single...

Coal Health Claims (22 Mar 2005)

Kevan Jones: Does my hon. Friend agree that the case of Mr. Jobes against Silverbeck Rymer highlights that point exactly? The company was working not in the best interests of Mr. Jobes, as solicitors should, but in its own best interests to get the fee or the work.

Coal Health Claims (22 Mar 2005)

Kevan Jones: Does my hon. Friend agree that one of the confusing features of such cases is that people who were associated with trade unions—including Mr. Towler, who started off in the unemployment centre in Sunderland but now drives a nice new Mercedes and lives in a big house in Northumberland—have given legitimacy to some of the claims handling companies? Frankly, we cannot blame a lot...

Coal Health Claims (22 Mar 2005)

Kevan Jones: I am very grateful to Mr. Speaker for allowing me to initiate this debate. The subject is of interest to many right hon. and hon. Members who represent mining and former mining constituencies. I am very proud that the Labour Government put in place the coal handling agreement, which compensates miners and former miners who were affected by their exposure to dust. Thousands of miners and...

Coal Health Claims (22 Mar 2005)

Kevan Jones: As someone who for 12 years practised in industrial tribunals and was not legally qualified, I accept the Clementi review. Certain things can be done without legal qualification. The important point is that regulation is required. It is woefully lacking in terms of the Law Society, and the organisations I have mentioned are outside its remit. They must, however, be regulated. I urge the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Tourism Deficit (21 Mar 2005)

Kevan Jones: My right hon. Friend recognised the importance of the regions in promoting tourism. Will he congratulate One NorthEast and the North East Tourism Advisory Board, of which I am a member, on the production of their recent strategy for the north-east? It is not just about promoting the wonderful attractions and beauty of the north-east of England, but about ensuring that tourism plays a key...

Written Answers — Health: Scans (Private Sector) (18 Mar 2005)

Kevan Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Health for what reasons the decision was taken to site the Alliance Medicals mobile scanner at James Cook Hospital, Middlesbrough rather than at University Hospital, North Durham; and who took the decision.

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (17 Mar 2005)

Kevan Jones: I apologise for not being here at the beginning of the debate. I have been on two statutory instrument Committees. The Whips clearly want to keep me busy, on the basis that the devil makes work for idle hands. I have heard some thoughtful speeches. As usual, the hon. Member for Cities of London and Westminster (Mr. Field) made a very thoughtful contribution, which did not deal with the...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (17 Mar 2005)

Kevan Jones: That is another good example of the Liberal Democrats doing one thing in one place and another thing in another place. I do not question the hon. Gentleman's recollection of events, but the Liberals clearly opposed the minimum wage, as they opposed the new deal. Those policies have made a real difference in constituencies such as mine. I believe that the Liberal Democrats are trying to make...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (17 Mar 2005)

Kevan Jones: Is it not a fact that the hon. Gentleman's Front-Bench spokesmen argue that real-terms spending will be down £35 billion? On "The Daily Politics" show on BBC 2 on 18 January, the shadow Chancellor said: "Our plans provide for us to continue growing public spending a per cent. slower each year than Labour and by the end of the" economic cycle "we'll be spending . . . £35 billion...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (17 Mar 2005)

Kevan Jones: I choose to believe in the fact that youth unemployment in my constituency has gone down by 85 per cent. since the Government came to power. May I tell the hon. Gentleman that I have not been in the Chamber this afternoon because I have been attending a Committee considering delegated legislation? The hon. Gentleman listed a number of organisations. My maths is not brilliant, but the total...
