Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Topical Questions (15 Jan 2018)

John Mann: Given the appalling state of some armed services accommodation and the amount of gold we have poured down Carillion’s throat, is not this week a great opportunity to directly employ some of the maintenance and catering staff, who could be automatically taken on by the MOD today to provide a good service without the requirement for a profit to be made for Carillion or any other private...

Independent Complaints and Grievance Policy (21 Dec 2017)

John Mann: I thank the GMB union for being the first Labour affiliate to build in detailed questioning of potential candidates’ understanding of sexual harassment and for having the integrity to refuse to nominate people who do not have that understanding. Will the Leader of the House let us know whether women who have previously complained and do not feel that that complaint was actually heard...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (29 Nov 2017)

John Mann: Being believed, reliving trauma, fear of publicity, and a culture of denial are some of the reasons why very many women are reluctant to report rape, assault and sexual harassment. Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that Government and Parliament need to lead by example? Will he, on behalf of the Government, apologise to the victims that Parliament and the Government have been letting down?

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Topical Questions (22 Nov 2017)

John Mann: When was the ministerial code last equality-proofed, and by whom?

Sexual Harassment and Violence in Schools (2 Nov 2017)

John Mann: I praise the work of the right hon. Member for Basingstoke (Mrs Miller) and of my hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Yardley (Jess Phillips). As I have been listening to them over a period of quite some time, I have learned a lot of important things. The issue raised here today is, without question, the highest on the agenda for the country. There is so much ignorance about the scale of...

Sexual Harassment in Parliament (30 Oct 2017)

John Mann: Will all cases that have been reported and not actioned—not just the one in north Wales, but others—be reopened? Will anybody who has been sexually assaulted have the right to say, “No, I don’t want the issue to go to the police. I want it treated in other ways.” In other words, will the victim control what the action is? Will compulsory training on the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (26 Oct 2017)

John Mann: Do we expect progress in sorting out abandoned waste sites owned by the Crown Estate, such as the one at Sandy Lane in my constituency?

Points of Order (24 Oct 2017)

John Mann: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Where an MP is elected by Parliament to represent us on a foreign delegation and is subsequently sent home from that delegation for inappropriate behaviour, will such cases always be reported back to the body that elected them—that is, to Parliament—and have they been in the past?

Points of Order (24 Oct 2017)

John Mann: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. No, my motivation is to clarify what is the policy and procedure of the House in a circumstance where a Member has been elected at any stage by this Parliament. Will these things be reported back?

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?
