Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill: After Clause 1 - Impact of section 1 on the social care sector (19 Oct 2020)

Andrew Mitchell: My hon. Friend will be aware that many of us across the House are concerned about the fact that there is not a limit. He is absolutely right that what is required is an international convention and international agreement on this issue. Nevertheless, for some people to be detained indefinitely having committed no crime is a matter of concern, and I would like my hon. Friend’s commitment...

EU Exit: Negotiations and the Joint Committee (19 Oct 2020)

Andrew Mitchell: My right hon. Friend knows from our time in Cabinet together that I have nothing but the greatest possible respect and admiration for his negotiating skills and abilities. Given that we are advised that fish and state aids are the main stumbling blocks to a deal, will he draw to the attention of Monsieur Macron, the President of France, the fact that if there is no deal on fishing, there will...

Registers of Births and Deaths Bill (16 Oct 2020)

Andrew Mitchell: I am most grateful to the House for its support of this modest but important measure, particularly to the two Front Benchers for giving such fulsome support. I believe it updates and modernises an important Government service. It extends choice and convenience for our constituents. It saves a great deal of public money—I emphasise that £170 million over 10 years is a very conservative...

Registers of Births and Deaths Bill (16 Oct 2020)

Andrew Mitchell: I believe that in Committee we will be able to satisfy my hon. Friend absolutely on the issue of fraud and on the other points as well. I hope that he will perhaps consider serving on the Bill Committee, where I am completely confident we will be able to satisfy him on all his concerns.

Registers of Births and Deaths Bill (16 Oct 2020)

Andrew Mitchell: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. I think that would be a very good thing to do. Of course, it would have to be the proposed orders, which will be subject to the affirmative resolution, as we have both agreed, that are already on the stocks, and there will be more in the future, not least to address any dangers—he mentioned the issue of fraud—that are not relevant or understood today...

Registers of Births and Deaths Bill (16 Oct 2020)

Andrew Mitchell: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time. I must apologise to the House, because I have not been a regular attender on Friday sittings in recent years. The last occasion on which I brought a private Member’s Bill to the House was in March 1991, when I promoted the Education (Publication of Examination Results) Bill, which proposed to set up league tables. It failed to win the...

Registers of Births and Deaths Bill (16 Oct 2020)

Andrew Mitchell: I give way with great pleasure to my hon. Friend, who, as a distinguished resident of the royal town of Sutton Coldfield, may well recall the events of which I have spoken.

Registers of Births and Deaths Bill (16 Oct 2020)

Andrew Mitchell: That is a most important point. I will come to it, but clause 4 refers to the very point that my hon. Friend so wisely makes. Currently, registrars submit copies of all the birth and death entries they have registered in the last quarter to their superintendent registrar via a system of quarterly returns. The superintendent registrar certifies those entities as being true copies of birth and...

Registers of Births and Deaths Bill (16 Oct 2020)

Andrew Mitchell: I will come on to a number of points that my hon. Friend alludes to, but I think he will be satisfied, when he hears about the other provisions of my Bill, that that point is properly addressed. With the move to an electronic register, the system of quarterly returns will no longer be necessary. Following the registration of a birth or death in the electronic register, the entry will...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Health Professions: Coronavirus (16 Oct 2020)

Andrew Mitchell: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what discussions he has had with the Secretary of State for Education on the effect of local covid-19 restrictions on healthcare workers that rely on childcare provided by extended family members.

Public Health: Coronavirus Regulations (13 Oct 2020)

Andrew Mitchell: My right hon. Friend is making a compelling case, but will he bear in mind that in the west midlands we are concerned that yesterday’s change was made on the basis of neatness, not of medical need? Will he reassure me that he will always listen carefully to the West Midlands Mayor, Andy Street, as these matters all develop?

Covid-19 Update (12 Oct 2020)

Andrew Mitchell: I warmly welcome my right hon. Friend’s collaborative approach with local government and with the mayors, but will he bear in mind that we have unity among the politicians and the public health experts across the west midlands under our skilful and much-respected Mayor Andy Street in support of the current levels of restrictions, because they do appear to be working? The medical evidence...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Unemployment: Sutton Coldfield (8 Oct 2020)

Andrew Mitchell: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what steps her Department is taking to offer tailored support to help unemployed people back into work in Sutton Coldfield constituency.

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill (5 Oct 2020)

Andrew Mitchell: We have had discussions on the points of concern to me, and my right hon. Friend has given answers to three written questions today, which were helpful indeed. He will understand the importance of the point made by the hon. Member for Cardiff South and Penarth (Stephen Doughty): that these are significant powers for us to grant in a democratic society. I believe my right hon. Friend has made...

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill (5 Oct 2020)

Andrew Mitchell: Will the Minister give way?

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill (5 Oct 2020)

Andrew Mitchell: I am grateful to my right hon. Friend, who is being generous. At what level will the original authorisation take place in the various organisations? From reading the Bill, it seems to me that the level in the police is a relatively junior police officer. In view of the seriousness that such authorisation leads to, should it not be given at chief constable level, and why can it not be given...

Covid-19 Update (5 Oct 2020)

Andrew Mitchell: May I thank my right hon. Friend for the way that he has worked so closely with us in the west midlands? He knows that, first and foremost, I am in favour of community solidarity and good sense, rather than legal diktat and Government fiat. Will he commend those universities that have already introduced student responsibility agreements as a way of furthering all of that? Will he bear in mind...

CCRC Decision on 44 Post Office Prosecutions (5 Oct 2020)

Andrew Mitchell: It is clearly not this very good Minister’s fault, but it is clear, is it not, that a monstrous injustice by the state has been visited upon these poor postmasters and postmistresses, leaving us all, I would hope, extremely uneasy. By refusing to allow the inquiry even to consider the compensation that they should be given, are not the Government, who own, fund and direct the Post Office,...
