Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (16 Oct 2017)

John Mann: If she will make a statement on her departmental responsibilities.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (16 Oct 2017)

John Mann: Zombies are running wild in our communities. Sometimes those zombies are naked, their minds addled by a psychoactive street substance called Mamba. When will this House have a vote on making the possession of Mamba illegal?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (10 Oct 2017)

John Mann: My hospital trust tells me that there are no open or distance learning courses available anywhere to train new nurses. Considering the number of local people who are keen to be trained and the barriers that face them, will the Secretary of State agree to have a chinwag with me to solve this problem in Bassetlaw?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (9 Oct 2017)

John Mann: Universal credit is to be introduced in my constituency on 14 December, which, in my view, is indecent. The introduction should be delayed, as it will be a catastrophe for many children at Christmas. As the Secretary of State believes the opposite, will he accept my offer now of a visit to my constituency the week after its introduction, in the run-up to Christmas, to see whether I am right...

Blacklisting (5 Sep 2017)

John Mann: I will make one comment on the public inquiry. There could be reasons why the Government are a little reluctant to hold one, because, if we look at history, there were, of course, previous blacklisting organisations. We know of the unanswered questions—or rather, the unjustly resolved questions—relating to Shrewsbury in 1973, and we know about the Economic League blacklist. I put...

Points of Order: Drugs Policy (18 Jul 2017)

John Mann: May I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Ipswich (Sandy Martin) on a brilliant maiden speech? It was one of five exquisite, eloquent, factual and well-informed maiden speeches that we have heard today. I have visited all those towns other than Ipswich, although I do hope that, at some stage, I will visit his football club and make it five out of five. I congratulate all five new...

Points of Order: Drugs Policy (18 Jul 2017)

John Mann: Mr Deputy Speaker, you are ever wise, ever accurate and ever factual. Bassetlaw saw a 400% reduction in acquisitive crime. Why? Because it was the drug addicts committing most of the crime. For 11 years people could go through the front door of their GP’s surgery. Not everyone was happy. I have read the medical advice—not all of it, but hundreds and thousands of papers—and...

Points of Order: Drugs Policy (18 Jul 2017)

John Mann: If it has, that is brilliant, but we should never have gone back to that nonsense in the first place; I am sure the Minister will blame the Liberals. That is what we had in 2002: the revolving door. “Oh, you’re out—you’re clean.” “Who says I’m clean?” “Well it’s six months. You have to be.” It was a bit like how it is in the...

Points of Order: Drugs Policy (18 Jul 2017)

John Mann: Is not the right hon. Gentleman overstating his case? I have visited quite a number of safe rooms across the world and studied the academic research into them. Is it not an overstatement to suggest that nobody dies there? The question of safe injecting is one of the aspects of death, but, as all the Dutch surveys demonstrate, the fundamental determinant of how long someone with an opiate...

Points of Order: Drugs Policy (18 Jul 2017)

John Mann: The Scottish Government have followed entirely the Tory Government’s approach on recovery-based treatment, as opposed to NHS treatment. Why would devolving power make a ha’pence of difference, when all the SNP has done is to adopt Tory policies and their consequential failures?

Points of Order: Drugs Policy (18 Jul 2017)

John Mann: Will my right hon. Friend join me in condemning the vast number of Labour local authorities that, in 2013, took their drug service out of the NHS and gave it to private providers? That includes mine in Nottinghamshire. Should we not have a Labour party position that would stop them doing this?

Points of Order: Drugs Policy (18 Jul 2017)

John Mann: We have already had more mentions in the first 10 minutes of the police than we have police officers in Bassetlaw. Will the Minister confirm that we remain the only country in the world, other than the United States, where the Government lead for drugs is in criminal justice, as opposed to health? If the approach is evidence-based, why is that the case?

Points of Order: Drugs Policy (18 Jul 2017)

John Mann: Will the Minister give way?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (17 Jul 2017)

John Mann: Will the inquiry into electoral conduct take full cognisance of the superb all-party report written by the previous Deputy Speaker, Natascha Engel, which has, sadly, been rebuffed by successive leaders of parties on both sides of the House?

UK Elections: Abuse and Intimidation — [David Hanson in the Chair] (12 Jul 2017)

John Mann: Four years ago the all-party parliamentary group against anti-Semitism produced a detailed set of recommendations on an all-party basis about conduct in elections and asked every political leader to endorse it. To date, none has. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that if the political leaders themselves drew up a code of conduct and a way of addressing behaviour during elections, that would go a...

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Aid Programmes: Africa (12 Jul 2017)

John Mann: What assessment she has made of the effectiveness of UK aid programmes in Africa.

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Aid Programmes: Africa (12 Jul 2017)

John Mann: I congratulate the Secretary of State on her announcement this week on population. Given what Mrs Gates said about the impact on migration, will the Secretary of State consider how the core funding for organisations such as the International Planned Parenthood Federation and Marie Stopes International can be reinstated to allow those organisations to deliver what they have been doing...

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Mayflower Pilgrims (11 Jul 2017)

John Mann: What discussions he has had with the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport on celebrating the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower pilgrims in 2020 in the UK and abroad.

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Mayflower Pilgrims (11 Jul 2017)

John Mann: I thought the Prime Minister wanted help from Opposition Members, and here I am, available—the re-elected co-chair of the all-party parliamentary group for the Mayflower pilgrims—unlike Olly, who now has other pursuits to pursue. I was prepared to offer my services to take on that role, rather than a non-parliamentarian. Nevertheless, can the good people of Bassetlaw expect...

Public Sector Pay Cap (5 Jul 2017)

John Mann: As a public sector worker, how much has the right hon. Lady’s own pay increased since 2010 and how much has her productivity increased since 2010? Can the country afford her pay increase, and if so, does she agree with me that Britain deserves a pay increase?
