Christmas Adjournment (18 Dec 2003)

Kevan Jones: I should like to raise our constituents' ability to gain justice when a wrong is committed against them or a member of their family. I shall give two different examples of circumstances faced by my constituents in North Durham over the past year. Each constituent was let down by the system, and left angry and disillusioned with the legal system. The first case concerns Mrs. Ann Stevens of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Iraq (15 Dec 2003)

Kevan Jones: Although yesterday's announcement of the capture of Saddam Hussein was widely welcomed, it is recognised that attacks on coalition forces will continue. Many of those attacks will be organised by groups and individuals from outside Iraq. Can my right hon. Friend assure us that the utmost is being done to prevent those individuals from entering Iraq, and that British personnel in southern Iraq...

International Affairs (27 Nov 2003)

Kevan Jones: Although no one wants to see a duplication of NATO planning, does my right hon. Friend agree that the benefits of defence co-operation in Europe will clearly be of advantage not just to the UK but to other European Parliaments? For example, there will be greater capacity for heavy lift and other capabilities within Europe, which we often look to the United States to provide but in future...

Debate on the Address — [First Day] (26 Nov 2003)

Kevan Jones: I am sad to hear that Southend has been passed by. County Durham has been given an extra 100 police officers and an extra 25 community support officers since 1997, and crime in my constituency has fallen by 50 per cent. What is unique about Southend?

Debate on the Address — [First Day] (26 Nov 2003)

Kevan Jones: Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that those powers were transferred not under the Liberals or the Labour party, but under Conservative Governments?

Regional Government (North-east) (12 Nov 2003)

Kevan Jones: The hon. Member for Hexham mentioned the Tyne and Wear development corporation. Does my hon. Friend agree that two institutions that needed public accountability and exposure were the Teesside and the Tyneside development corporations set up by the last Tory Government?

Regional Government (North-east) (12 Nov 2003)

Kevan Jones: The hon. Gentleman should remember what the Conservative Government did to my constituency, North Durham. They decimated the coal industry and closed down the shipbuilding industry on Teesside, Sunderland, Wearside and Tyneside. I must also correct the hon. Gentleman—the Tyne and Wear development corporation squandered millions of pounds on schemes that did not come through. Today's...

Public Bill Committee: European Parliamentary and Local Elections (Pilots) Bill: Clause 4 - Electoral commission report (4 Nov 2003)

Kevan Jones: The hon. Gentleman made a serious accusation that the Electoral Commission is in the Government's pocket, although he tried to hide the accusation by defending the integrity of individual members of the commission.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Military Co-operation (European Forces) (3 Nov 2003)

Kevan Jones: Like my hon. Friend the Member for Motherwell and Wishaw (Mr. Roy), I had the privilege of visiting Afghanistan last week. Will my right hon. Friend commend the work carried out by the European partners in Afghanistan, and in particular the work done by British armed forces in Afghanistan under the able command of Colonel Richard Kemp? Will he confirm that that is a good example of...

Defence Procurement (23 Oct 2003)

Kevan Jones: Does my hon. Friend agree that, whether the tonnage is 40,000 or 60,000, the commitment to the two CVFs will lead to large amounts of work for shipbuilding communities throughout this country, many of which went through lean years when the Conservatives were in power?

Defence Procurement (23 Oct 2003)

Kevan Jones: The debate is important not only because we are considering the procurement of equipment to defend our nation but because the industry provides highly skilled jobs in many constituencies. The defence industry welcomed the Government's defence industrial policy, which they announced in the House last year. The document was long overdue, but for the first time it transparently linked providing...

Defence Procurement (23 Oct 2003)

Kevan Jones: Alas, I have to agree with my hon. Friend. Unfortunately, the climate in the United States at the moment is all about protecting the Americans' interests. I do not think that they realise the damage that that will do to the defence industry not only in the United States but in this country, and also to other sectors such as the steel industry. If the Buy American Bill goes through, it will...

Defence Procurement (23 Oct 2003)

Kevan Jones: I too was at that event. I understand that Brough falls within a constituency that the Liberal Democrats will be targeting at the next election. Will we now be seeing Focus leaflets going out, supporting the defence industry and also supporting the decision to buy Hawk, which was not the Liberal Democrat view a few months back?

Defence Procurement (23 Oct 2003)

Kevan Jones: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Defence Procurement (23 Oct 2003)

Kevan Jones: I will try to help my hon. Friend. Does he agree that the strange thing about the FRES programme is the fact that after spending several million pounds, through Alvis Vickers and other companies, on the development phase, the Government have suddenly pulled the plug on the programme? Has not that sent a message to UK suppliers that they may not be in the loop for the next procurement of the...

Defence Procurement (23 Oct 2003)

Kevan Jones: I hear what the hon. Gentleman says about the change in position of the US Administration, but is he aware that as early as last week Paul Wolfowitz was trying to negotiate with Mr. Hunter about his Bill, not to veto it—as we were told in Washington—but to water it down? It would still have grave implications for the UK defence industry.
