Iran: Vauxhall (Redundancies) (16 Oct 2017)

Ian Lucas: As chair of the all-party regional group covering this area and former chair of the Automotive Council, I recently attended a Toyota event celebrating 25 years of production at the nearby Deeside plant, and the message coming from the automotive sector in connection with all different types of production is that the lack of clarity from the Cabinet and Government on this issue is undermining...

Sky/Fox Merger (12 Sep 2017)

Ian Lucas: I commend the Secretary of State for her decision, but is it not incumbent on her to secure the evidence to make the correct decision? She must now take forward Leveson 2, which the House clearly wants and the victims were promised so long ago.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Employment Trends (6 Sep 2017)

Queen’s Speech: Implications for Wales — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (19 Jul 2017)

Ian Lucas: Does my hon. Friend think that one of the rare shafts of light that occurred during the general election campaign from the Prime Minister was her refusal to guarantee the people of Wales that they would not suffer by losing out financially as a result of the Budget negotiations? Will my hon. Friend ask the Minister to give an assurance that there will be no reduction in the settlement for...

Points of Order: Drugs Policy (18 Jul 2017)

Ian Lucas: I congratulate the new hon. Member for Stoke-on-Trent South (Jack Brereton) on his excellent maiden speech. He told of the multitude travelling to Stoke. The last multitude to travel to Stoke from Wrexham was for the FA cup match a few years ago. Wrexham led for a glorious five minutes, but unfortunately it did not end well. His was a wonderful speech that did end well, and I wish him the...

Points of Order: Drugs Policy (18 Jul 2017)

Ian Lucas: Yes, it is a continuing and increasing problem, but it was a problem before the Act was passed. This is a difficult issue with no easy solution. The Act has already had to be amended to reclassify the drug, and to make possession an offence. Initially, that was not the case, and there were problems with effective enforcement. People who had clearly taken these substances and were in a poor...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Infrastructure: Private Sector Investment (18 Jul 2017)

Ian Lucas: The north Wales Mersey Dee region hosts world-beating businesses such as Kellogg’s, Airbus and JCB, but we need competitive infrastructure in order to ensure that we remain competitive. For that reason, and in the absence of the public sector investment we are crying out for, may we please have the ability to deliver private sector investment? What are the Government going to do to...

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Topical Questions (12 Jul 2017)

Women and Equalities: Ex-prisoners (Support) (6 Jul 2017)

Ian Lucas: The Minister has correctly identified the importance of homelessness in reoffending, but will he give much more detail about what specific assistance is given to individuals who leave prison, who we do not want to see reoffending but who need assistance at a crucial time?

Women and Equalities: Topical Questions (6 Jul 2017)

Ian Lucas: The Minister for Women and Equalities has this morning heard the overwhelming view across the House on the WASPI issue, following yesterday’s Westminster Hall debate. Is she not embarrassed by the Government’s current policy, and what will she do to change it?

Energy Price Cap (3 Jul 2017)

Ian Lucas: But does the outcome of the CMA inquiry not tell the Secretary of State, as a reasonable man, that this is the end of the road for the system? Privatisation did not work, the regulatory system has not worked, and we have had to have a CMA inquiry. What is needed is a fundamental reappraisal and change of this whole energy edifice?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (3 Jul 2017)

Ian Lucas: The prohibitive cost of testing for novel psychoactive substances is causing considerable expense to police forces in enforcing the current law.

21ST Century Fox/Sky Merger (29 Jun 2017)

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Sport: Young People (29 Jun 2017)

What progress has been made in providing excellent facilities for disabled young people to view football matches?

Debate on the Address: Health, Social Care and Security (28 Jun 2017)

Ian Lucas: It is a real pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Kingston upon Hull North (Diana Johnson) and to take part in this very interesting debate. There has been a very strong message from this Chamber on public sector pay. One great advantage of general elections is that the voters tell us what they want to talk about. The Prime Minister may have wanted to have an election on Brexit,...

Debate on the Address: Health, Social Care and Security (28 Jun 2017)

Ian Lucas: The Secretary of State is of course right to talk about police reform, which is extremely important, but it misrepresents the Labour party to say that we are not interested in police reform. We introduced police community support officers when we were in government, and there was a constant period of reform then. The real point is that the Conservative party have cut budgets not since 2015,...
