Transport Secretary: East Coast Franchise (23 May 2018)

Kevan Jones: I am sure the hon. Lady remembers British Rail, because we are still travelling on some of the 125 rolling stock first introduced by British Rail.

Transport Secretary: East Coast Franchise (23 May 2018)

Kevan Jones: Is it not the case that what we are seeing here is not a free market situation at all? In a free market situation, a failing franchisee would lose money, too. The current situation is tantamount to going into a casino, putting on a bet, losing and being given back the stake. Surely risk should be shared with the private sector in future arrangements so it takes a hit, as well as the taxpayer.

Transport Secretary: East Coast Franchise (23 May 2018)

Kevan Jones: The right hon. Gentleman blames Network Rail for these problems and calls it a nationalised part of the railways, but he must remember that he is the Secretary of State. One of the main problems was the lack of consultation with the wider travelling public, or for that matter with many local Members of Parliament or local authorities.

Gaza: Un Human Rights Council Vote: Private Members’ Bills: Money Resolutions (21 May 2018)

Kevan Jones: That is fine, but will we then get a situation in which, when someone initiates a private Member’s Bill, we get into a debate not about whether it needs a money resolution, but whether it needs what is deemed to be a significant amount of expenditure? As we all know, what is significant in the eyes of one person is different from what is significant in the eyes of others.

Gaza: Un Human Rights Council Vote: Private Members’ Bills: Money Resolutions (21 May 2018)

Kevan Jones: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Manchester, Gorton (Afzal Khan) on securing the debate and on being successful in the ballot. Private Members’ Bills are important and have been responsible for some major social change in this country. The Sexual Offences Act 1967, which legalised private consensual sex between males over the age of 21, was a private Member’s Bill...

Gaza: Un Human Rights Council Vote: Private Members’ Bills: Money Resolutions (21 May 2018)

Kevan Jones: I disagree with the right hon. Gentleman, because we then get into a situation where we have to ask who defines what the amount of money is. That is the point—it has to be down to the House to decide whether a money resolution is passed. The hon. Member for Christchurch (Sir Christopher Chope) quite rightly asked what is stopping the Government laying down a money resolution to be...

Gaza: Un Human Rights Council Vote: Private Members’ Bills: Money Resolutions (21 May 2018)

Kevan Jones: Therein lies the problem. Clearly, there are a number of Conservative Back Benchers who will not vote for the current Boundary Commission recommendations, which I will get on to in a minute, and the Government are not confident about getting them through. Not tabling a money resolution to the private Member’s Bill is a new blocking technique. They do not want to test the will of the...

Gaza: Un Human Rights Council Vote: Private Members’ Bills: Money Resolutions (21 May 2018)

Kevan Jones: As you know, Madam Deputy Speaker, brevity is my style; I will certainly do what you request. A fundamental part of our democracy in this country is the link between the constituency and the community, but that has been thrown out completely in this process. I do not blame the Boundary Commission for that; I blame the coalition Government. Let us remember that there was a coalition, and the...

Gaza: Un Human Rights Council Vote: Private Members’ Bills: Money Resolutions (21 May 2018)

Kevan Jones: Unfortunately, I cannot give way because I do not have the time. This debate is not about the cost, but about the fact that the Government cannot secure a majority in this House. They do not have a majority among their own Back Benchers to support their legislation, and if they were really thinking about the public purse, they would ditch the Boundary Commission review now, adopt the Bill of...

Gaza: Un Human Rights Council Vote: Private Members’ Bills: Money Resolutions (21 May 2018)

Kevan Jones: I am sorry, but the right hon. Lady is talking complete nonsense. Is it not a fact that the Government could lay the money resolution now? The idea that that money would be spent is absolute rubbish, and as for the idea that the Bill will somehow go ahead, would it not be a suitable back-up if the boundary commissions’ review were to fall?
