Local Government Reform: Greater London — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (17 Oct 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: This has been a worthwhile debate. I hope that colleagues who represent London constituencies will take the time to read some of the interesting, useful arguments put forward on a range of topics and that they, too, will think about how London should develop. I have thought deeply about this. I have lived in London/Essex my entire life and I care about our great UK capital city, which I want...

Local Government Reform: Greater London — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (17 Oct 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: The Minister ought to be aware that the so-called London Olympics took place in Stratford, which is a traditional part of Essex. I do not object to its being called the London Olympics, but it is a perfect example of a national event in the London region, even though the reality is that the town of Stratford is traditionally part of Essex. There was no mention at all of the county of Essex....

Local Government Reform: Greater London — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (17 Oct 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: I am delighted by what the Minister has just said, because that is exactly what I said earlier: it would be far better to have an assembly or council of leaders from each borough who have a genuine understanding of what is needed in their local communities. I am afraid I do not think that the London Assembly fulfils that task in the way that is needed. In the London Borough of Havering, the...

Local Government Reform: Greater London — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (17 Oct 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: I thank the Minister for that invitation. Is he therefore willing to meet the newly elected leader of Havering Council, Councillor Damian White, who is the youngest Conservative leader of any council in the country, and me, to talk about how a borough such as Havering can change in a way that benefits our local community, with the support of our Government?

Local Government Reform: Greater London — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (17 Oct 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: The hon. Gentleman is making a lot of good points, and we agree on many things. Does he accept that an area such as mine, right on the edge of Greater London, is totally different from places such as Westminster, Kensington and Chelsea, or Islington? More powers should be given back to us in our area so that we can work with the Essex councils; that is where we are. Does he agree that...

Local Government Reform: Greater London — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (17 Oct 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: I am glad that the hon. Gentleman made that point. That is exactly the problem we face. A “Welcome to Essex” sign has been placed on the boundary between Romford and Brentwood. Suddenly, we have been told that we are no longer Essex, because Essex County Council will only put the sign on the boundary of its area. That is nonsense. The traditional identity of the counties is being...

Local Government Reform: Greater London — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (17 Oct 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: I beg to move, That this House has considered local government reform in Greater London. Thank you very much, Mr Hosie, and good morning to all. I am grateful for this opportunity to open what I hope will be a wide-ranging debate on the structure and responsibilities of local government across London and the need to embrace the need for fundamental reform that will better serve the people of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Civil Aviation Noise (11 Oct 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: What progress his Department has made on reducing the level of civil aviation noise.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Civil Aviation Noise (11 Oct 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: The Secretary of State will be aware that complaints about London City airport have gone up dramatically since the introduction of the new concentrated flightpaths. Although quieter aeroplane engines are welcome, will he do all he can to ensure that there is a fairer spread of flightpaths along the east Thames corridor, particularly affecting my constituents in Romford, Hornchurch and the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Private Prosecutions (9 Oct 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: How many private prosecutions initiated by third parties (a) were brought to trial and (b) resulted in a conviction in the last five years.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Private Prosecutions (9 Oct 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: Like me, the Minister will have heard reports of police allowing perpetrators of domestic violence and especially of FGM to escape justice by a reluctance to prosecute. Will the Minister please inform the House what is being done to ensure that we do not simply push responsibility to prosecute on to already traumatised victims?

International Trade: Topical Questions (13 Sep 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: As the Secretary of State knows, the UK is the largest investor in Tanzania, a proud Commonwealth nation to which I have just been appointed trade envoy. Will he be good enough to outline what Her Majesty’s Government will do to strengthen that relationship as we leave the European Union?

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?
