Dangerous Dogs Act: Staffordshire Bull Terriers — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (16 Jul 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: I thank the Minister for the assurance that Staffordshire bull terriers will not be added to that list, which will come as a great relief to Staffordshire bull terrier owners across the country. People like me who have owned Staffordshires know that they are fantastic, great British dogs that are not a danger to the general public. The Minister says that he does not intend to change the...

Dangerous Dogs Act: Staffordshire Bull Terriers — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (16 Jul 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: I am pleased to hear the hon. Lady say that. She is coming at this from exactly the right angle. The Dangerous Dogs Act was brought in in 1991 and was a knee-jerk reaction. It has never been effective and has always been completely flawed. There should surely be cross-party consensus to review this legislation so that we have an effective law that protects the public and is not cruel to...

Dangerous Dogs Act: Staffordshire Bull Terriers — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (16 Jul 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: I apologise that I was not here for the start of the debate; I was chairing a Delegated Legislation Committee. I have owned two Staffordshire bull terriers—in fact, I have had Staffordshire bull terriers for 25 years of my life—and they are the most amazing, gentle dogs. The very suggestion that they should be added to the flawed Dangerous Dogs Act—which should never have...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Jul 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: My right hon. Friend will be aware that in London we have experienced a 377% increase in moped crime in the past two years. As the Mayor of London has so failed to tackle crime, will my right hon. Friend ensure that the Government intervene to make London the safest city in the world?

Leaving the EU (9 Jul 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: Will the Prime Minister explain to the House how the new UK-EU free trade agreement will ensure that London retains its status as the global trading capital of Europe? To do that, is it not best that the rulebook is made in Britain?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: A12: Gallows Corner Roundabout (5 Jul 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: If he will take steps to ensure the improvement of safety at the Gallows Corner roundabout on the A12.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: A12: Gallows Corner Roundabout (5 Jul 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: The Minister will be aware that the Gallows Corner flyover at the A127-A12 junction is a very congested accident hotspot. The hopelessly inadequate response from TfL and the Mayor of London should be dealt with by the national Government. Will money from the national highways budget be used so that the Government can step in to help us to resolve this ongoing problem?

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Venezuela: Vulnerable People (4 Jul 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: What assistance her Department is providing to vulnerable people in Venezuela.

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Venezuela: Vulnerable People (4 Jul 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: The Minister will be aware of the United Nations human rights report that details the complete erosion of the rule of law and human rights in Venezuela. Will he explain to the House what the UK is doing to support economic reform and stability in the region, to ensure that the money is spent in the right place while the Venezuelan Government still refuse to acknowledge that there is a...

Pet Theft — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (2 Jul 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: I really commend the hon. Gentleman for leading this debate today. I have owned two Staffordshire bull terriers; sadly, they are no longer with us. The devastation of losing a pet in this way, through being stolen, is horrendous, so does the hon. Gentleman agree not only that the Government need to bring in much stiffer sentences as quickly as possible, but that we need to encourage everyone...

The Minister for Women and Equalities Was Asked: Women in the Science, Technology and Engineering Industries (28 Jun 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: What steps the Government are taking with businesses to ensure that women are better represented in the science, technology and engineering industries.

The Minister for Women and Equalities Was Asked: Women in the Science, Technology and Engineering Industries (28 Jun 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: Will the Minister join me in commending the Frances Bardsley Academy for Girls in Romford? Retired engineers go into the school to tutor the young girls, particularly in the STEM industries. Does she agree that that is a great way to help young people, and particularly females, into this industry?

Offensive Weapons Bill (27 Jun 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: Very quickly, I wholeheartedly endorse everything that my hon. Friend is saying. Does he agree that there must be a deterrent? If there is no deterrent, the crimes will carry on being committed and there will be no end to this. The punishment must fit the crime, and people must be deterred from committing these acts of violence.

Offensive Weapons Bill (27 Jun 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: One problem in my constituency following the murder on Saturday evening is the feeling that the police do not have enough resources. I agree with the hon. Lady. We cannot keep reducing resources for policing and say it will not have an effect on crime; clearly it will. However, Havering in my area, for example, is part of Greater London, so the resources are allocated by the Mayor of London....

Offensive Weapons Bill (27 Jun 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: I agree with much of what the hon. Lady says, but can she envisage how local people in Havering feel? We are part of Essex, yet we are lumped into Greater London. My hon. Friend the Member for Chelmsford (Vicky Ford) proudly speaks of 150 new policemen for Essex, but people who come to Romford will realise that we are Essex, rather than London. However, we get so few resources from the Mayor...

Offensive Weapons Bill (27 Jun 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: The murder of the young man to whom the Home Secretary referred at the beginning of his remarks took place in the Collier Row part of my constituency. My right hon. Friend will know that we are not used to that kind of crime and people in my area are living in fear. Yesterday we had another incident, this time involving a machete-wielding individual near the town centre. Last month, we had...

Offensive Weapons Bill (27 Jun 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: A young man was murdered with a knife in terrible circumstances in Romford on Saturday evening. We can ban these weapons if we like, but the Home Secretary needs to be aware that if someone with criminal intent wants to get hold of one, they will find a way. I commend the Bill and I will support it, but surely we should also be looking at how young people are being brought up. We should look...

ME: Treatment and Research — [Mr Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (21 Jun 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: As a lot of colleagues wish to speak in the debate, I ask that everyone keep their remarks within about eight or 10 minutes each, if that is possible. For the benefit of the Minister and the Opposition spokesmen, I hope to be able to start the winding-up speeches at 4 o’clock.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Animal Cruelty (7 Jun 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: When he plans to publish the findings of his consultation on the draft Animal Welfare (Sentencing and Recognition of Sentience) Bill; and if he will bring forward legislative proposals on five-year sentences for animal cruelty.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Animal Cruelty (7 Jun 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: I thank the Minister for his reply. Given that five-year sentencing for animal cruelty has gained cross-party support from MPs, the animal sector and the public, will he tell us how soon he will announce the details of when sentences can be given to those guilty of such awful crimes?
