Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Monopoly Water Providers: Senior Executive Pay (12 Jul 2018)

Ian Lucas: The chief executive of Severn Trent earned £2.45 million last year. As a Wrexham customer I have to contribute to that salary, following the hostile takeover of our local water company. Does the Secretary of State, in his new progressive form, agree that Severn Trent should follow the example of the John Lewis Partnership and link the pay of its highest paid chief executives to those...

Ministry of Justice (2 Jul 2018)

Ian Lucas: May I point out to the Minister that Berwyn is a public sector prison that was delivered on budget and on time, and in which a lot of hope is invested? Why have the Government excluded the public sector from tendering for the new prisons that he is referred to?

Ministry of Justice (2 Jul 2018)

Ian Lucas: It is a pleasure to take part in the debate and to follow the hon. Member for Bromley and Chislehurst (Robert Neill), the Chair of the Justice Committee; I will touch briefly on the Committee’s “Transforming Rehabilitation” report. I also welcome the relatively new Ministers—one of them is very new—to their places. I want to begin with a positive, which is the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: PIP Assessments: Appeals (2 Jul 2018)

Ian Lucas: In my constituency, over two thirds of decisions are being overturned on appeal. That shameful record is the responsibility of the Secretary of State and the Minister. It is causing real personal distress to individuals in Wrexham having to wait over a year to have wrong decisions reversed. What will the ministerial team do to respond to the real hardship they are causing to vulnerable people?

International Trade: Exports in Global Markets (28 Jun 2018)

North Wales Police and Nicholas Churton (26 Jun 2018)

Ian Lucas: I am sorry that the Minister takes exception to me raising funding. I do not accept her description of the position in 2010; in 2010, the Conservative Government reduced policing funding for 2010 to 2015 on the basis that the policies that they were pursuing would eliminate our budget deficit by 2015. That policy failed, but none the less we suffered the imposition of cuts between 2010 and...

North Wales Police and Nicholas Churton (26 Jun 2018)

Ian Lucas: I beg to move, That this House has considered North Wales Police, probation and the murder of Nicholas Churton. It is a pleasure to be here, and to address you in the chair, Mr Robertson. I always hesitate to bring up individual cases in the House, but this extremely serious case involved the death of one of my constituents. I hesitated to raise the matter because it brings grief and sad...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Heathrow Expansion: Benefits for Wales (13 Jun 2018)

Ian Lucas: Liverpool and Manchester airports serve north Wales. Will the Secretary of State ensure that those airports, which want further contacts with Heathrow, are not relegated to a position behind Heathrow on the issue of service access to airports?

Business of the House (7 Jun 2018)

Ian Lucas: Cabinet Office officials have been conducting surveys in Wrexham about Brexit and other issues. My named day question to the Cabinet Office on the matter—on the reason for these surveys—remains unanswered, despite being lodged on 16 May. Would the Leader of the House have a word with the Cabinet Office to answer my question and find out why the Conservative party are so...

Psychoactive Substances (23 May 2018)

Ian Lucas: Thank you, Sir Christopher. I will be brief. I thought it might be helpful to recount the situation we had in Wrexham last year and the steps that we have taken. That may assist the Minister and my right hon. Friend the Member for Delyn (David Hanson). I am very grateful to my right hon. Friend for arranging this debate. About a year ago, we had an extremely disturbing situation develop very...

Ian Lucas: Recent local elections in Tunisia showed an encouraging increase in the involvement of young people in the democratic process. What further assistance can the Government give to good governance there?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Productivity (22 May 2018)

Ian Lucas: The unique cross-border region of north Wales and Cheshire is one of the most dynamic economies in the United Kingdom. Will the Treasury—which has promised a north Wales growth deal in, I think, at least three Budgets, but has yet to deliver a penny—please stop marking our homework, and give us the freedom to invest in the economy that we believe in?

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

Ian Lucas: When Parliament votes, why do the Government feel at liberty to ignore those votes?

Ian Lucas: What assessment has the Department made of the impact of the abolition of the independent living fund on disabled young people?

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Data protection breaches by national news publishers (15 May 2018)

Ian Lucas: I want to say a word about Sir Brian Leveson. The first part of his inquiry was greatly valued and welcomed by all parties. Sir Brian Leveson said that he fundamentally disagreed with the Government’s decision not to proceed with part 2 of the inquiry. We should respect his view, and we should also keep the promise made by both sides of the House to the victims of press intrusion. This...

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Data protection breaches by national news publishers (15 May 2018)

Ian Lucas: In his intervention, the right hon. and learned Member for Rushcliffe (Mr Clarke) just talked about the importance of an independent regulator. Is it not the case, however, that IPSO is not independent? It was set up by the press and its terms of reference are those of the press; it is not an independent regulator. It is about time the Government accepted that. Does the Secretary of State agree?

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Data protection breaches by national news publishers (15 May 2018)

Ian Lucas: Can the Secretary of State confirm that amendment (c) will allow him to judge the effectiveness, personally, of the alternative dispute resolution procedures? Is he not giving himself the power to mark the press and their regulatory bodies?
