Kevan Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what weighting will be given to National Security Objective 3 during the bid selection process for future Royal Fleet Auxiliary Fleet Solid Support Ships.
Kevan Jones: I welcome the Home Secretary’s announcement. I note that he is not going to reclassify cannabis, but will he look at how we deal with individuals in possession of a small amount of cannabis? To that end, will he look at Checkpoint, an alternative justice initiative by Durham police that aims to help individuals and to try to break the link between drugs and crime?
Kevan Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what steps he is taking to urge Iranian compliance with Security Council Resolution 2216.

Kevan Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what estimate he has made of the cost to the public purse of converting pre-2023 delivered F-35B aircraft from the Northrop Grumman to Raytheon supplied Distributed Aperture System.
Kevan Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, whether his Department has plans to upgrade existing UK F-35B aircraft with Raytheon's Distributed Aperture System.
Kevan Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what the cost per unit is for each F-35 Gen III Helmet Mounted Display System and helmet.
Kevan Jones: I welcome any new money for the NHS, but does the Secretary of State agree that prevention is better than cure? Durham County Council has had its public health budget cut every single year for the last eight years. Can he tell me how much of this new money will be going to public health, or is he now going to have another fight with the Treasury to get it to release more money for public health?
Kevan Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what the UK’s sustainment strategy is for the UK AWACS capability beyond 2035.
Kevan Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what steps he is taking to ensure the UK’s aerospace and defence industry is informed of NATO's planned alliance future surveillance and control capability.
Kevan Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what steps the Government is taking to support a transatlantic consortium bid of US and UK defence companies to compete for any NATO Alliance Future Surveillance and Control programme contracts.
Kevan Jones: The first duty of any state is to protect its citizens. Historically, this has meant protecting ourselves from other states. That is still relevant today, but increasingly the threat is from terrorism, whether generated here or internationally. Is that going to diminish in the near future? Not from the evidence I have seen. I would like to begin by adding my thanks to the members of the...
Kevan Jones: I am not a liberal on any of these issues, but there is a problem with this. One difficulty the security services face is dealing with the amount of material that is out there and targeting the right people. If someone who has viewed such material three times can be pulled in by this provision, does that not throw the net rather wide, making it more difficult for law enforcement to target the...
Kevan Jones: rose—
Kevan Jones: Like my right hon. Friend the Member for Normanton, Pontefract and Castleford (Yvette Cooper), I support many of these measures, but why is it three times? I accept the definition in terms of academic research, a journalist or the case of the Home Affairs Committee, but what happens, for example, if a teenager or someone with mental health problems watches a video more than three times? Do...
Kevan Jones: I am just intrigued why it is three times and whether this always has to be done in context. Clearly, if it is part of a pattern of behaviour and someone is watching not just one video three times but a series of videos, that is different but, if we are not careful, some opponents of the Bill will highlight the fact that anyone who watches such a video three times will necessarily get...
Kevan Jones: I support the measures that the Home Secretary is outlining. In the briefing documents he sent before the debate, he referred to this measure as being similar to the monitoring of sex offenders in the community. In those cases, there is clear joint working between the probation service and police at local level. Is he envisaging a similar system for monitoring those who have been convicted of...
