Football: Safe Standing — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (25 Jun 2018)

John Mann: There are many things I would like to say and many things I would like to challenge. Ten MPs made a point that I would like to challenge, but I am not able to do so because of the ongoing court proceedings. I point that out as a fact but also because there are people with far greater expertise, such as one of my constituents, who has a dramatic amount of expertise in this area and could...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 (12 Jun 2018)

John Mann: Does my hon. Friend understand that Labour voters in the midlands and the north, who voted in large numbers to leave the European Union and who are a little bemused at the arguments even among the Cabinet over how that is delivered, do not wish to see the negotiations carried out by 650 Members of Parliament, and want to see Brexit got on with? If the Lords amendments are agreed to, how will...

Polish Anti-defamation Law — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

John Mann: We can learn a lot from cemeteries. When I visited eastern Poland with a Jewish family to look at their historical roots there, we visited the Jewish cemetery. It was not in a particularly good state—I do not think anybody had visited it for many decades—but what struck me was how big it was, because the village had been largely Jewish. I had research done into that family’s...

Polish Anti-defamation Law — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

John Mann: Of course it should be a matter for criminal law—it is in many countries—but my point is not that Poland is any worse than any other country, but that anti-Semitism remains and this law plays to that sentiment. That is the danger of the law. I will end with a recent quotation from a radio reporter in Poland, Marcin Wolski of TVP2. What did he describe? He said, “Let’s...

Offences Against the Person Act 1861: Ivory Bill (4 Jun 2018)

John Mann: Let me add my congratulations, too. As I told a group of constituents in this very Chamber this morning, my role as a Back-Bench MP is to highlight the idiocy of the Front-Bench spokesperson who should be immediately sacked for failing to listen to the wisdom that I offer, or immediately promoted to greater things for their infinite wisdom. I offer the Secretary of State the opportunity not...

Offences Against the Person Act 1861: Ivory Bill (4 Jun 2018)

John Mann: In respect of the stacks of ivory that the Scottish Government have in their museums, will they be prepared to destroy those horrendous objects or to offer them back to the countries from which they were originally poached?

Offences Against the Person Act 1861: Ivory Bill (4 Jun 2018)

John Mann: As the leader of the Labour party has offered the Elgin marbles back to Greece, will my hon. Friend give a commitment that, if the countries from which any ivory in a British museum was originally extracted would like that ivory back—even if the purpose is to destroy such ivory—the next Labour Government will give back those ivory objects?

Offences Against the Person Act 1861: Ivory Bill (4 Jun 2018)

John Mann: Would the Secretary of State accept that his commentary ought to be slightly amended, because we do not all recognise that historic ivory should be kept? Some of us think that this is an excuse for a continuation of the trade and that it creates loopholes and opportunities for those who wish to poach to masquerade their products as historic ivory. In fact, a bit like collections of shrunken...

Us Steel and Aluminium Tariffs (4 Jun 2018)

John Mann: I cannot believe what I am hearing. It is a good job that steelworkers and steel communities have not waved the white flag when they have been called upon repeatedly to defend our shared values with the US over the past 100 years. We cannot give into this. The only language that Trump understands is people fighting back. It is about time that this country fought back. We can do it. Trump...

East Coast Main Line (16 May 2018)

John Mann: The voters along the east coast main line in England were the strongest voters in the country for Brexit, and when they voted to leave the European Union, they, including my constituents, did not vote to give away the benefits that will come from it. They saw one of the big benefits of that vote as the ability to nationalise the rail industry. Why is this Secretary of State snubbing those...

Points of Order (24 Apr 2018)

John Mann: rose—

Points of Order (24 Apr 2018)

John Mann: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. After a debate on anti-Semitism a week ago today, I have received very many kind remarks from parliamentarians, their staff and, indeed, members of House staff, for which me and my family are very grateful. There is an exception to that: one member of the Press Lobby chose to put out on social media, without any communication whatsoever with me, the suggestion...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Wildlife Poaching (23 Apr 2018)

John Mann: What assessment his Department has made of the effectiveness of the training that it provides to African rangers in tackling wildlife poaching.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Wildlife Poaching (23 Apr 2018)

John Mann: With our ivory trade ban and our summit this autumn, what an opportunity we have not only to assist the work in Africa, but to give some of our armed forces real experience in training and, potentially, the use of drones. Could we not expand this training opportunity alongside this autumn’s summit?

Military Action Overseas: Parliamentary Approval: Anti-Semitism (17 Apr 2018)

John Mann: When my family helped to form the Labour party in Leeds in 1906, they suffered terribly because of that. The Jewish community in Leeds stood alongside them and supported them. That is why 13 years ago I took on the role of chairing the all-party group against anti-Semitism. I did not expect today, when Labour Members stand in solidarity with our Jewish colleagues and with the Jewish...

Military Action Overseas: Parliamentary Approval: Anti-Semitism (17 Apr 2018)

John Mann: It is constant. This weekend in my constituency and last night in my constituency—it is constant. There is explicit anti-Semitism, and then there is the bigger group—the excusers of anti-Semitism, the people who say, “This is something to do with who the leader of the Labour party is and challenging him.” No, it is not—in the 13 years I have been doing...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: National Debt (17 Apr 2018)

John Mann: What comparative assessment he has made of the size of the national debt (a) today and (b) 12 months ago.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: National Debt (17 Apr 2018)

John Mann: The national debt is going up by £5,000 a second. Can I be helpful? Will the Minister join me in stopping hospitals that are outsourcing staffing to avoid VAT, with an estimated 6% savings on wages lost to the Treasury, from doing so?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (16 Apr 2018)

John Mann: More money is being raised by tax for more police, but every single police officer and constituent I speak to says it will not be enough, and that we will not have, and do not have, enough police on the streets of Bassetlaw. What does it say about Government priorities that nobody accepts what the Home Secretary is saying—that we have enough police?

Business of the House (29 Mar 2018)

John Mann: On 23 November 2016, 30 March 2017, and 9 February 2018 I wrote to the Government to ask for a debate in Government time on anti-Semitism. Over those 18 months, on all three occasions I was told that there would be such a debate. Now that it has been scheduled, and considering the importance of the issue, half a day is simply insubstantial and insignificant. We need a full day’s...
