Backbench Business: Perinatal Mental Illness — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (19 Jul 2018)

Andrew Selous: It is an enormous pleasure to follow my colleague on the Health and Social Care Committee, the hon. Member for Stockton South (Dr Williams). I commend him for a tour de force of a speech, which was extremely comprehensive. I will not speak for as long as he did and I will try not to cover the points that he did, because this is a large area and there is a lot to say about it. It might be a...

Public Bill Committee: Parking (Code of Practice) Bill: Parking code (19 Jul 2018)

Andrew Selous: We had a similar case in Dunstable to the one my right hon. Friend described. The Quadrant car park in the middle of Dunstable was, on some occasions, completely full. Cars that came in, tried to find a parking space and, on seeing no space, drove out again were being issued with tickets. I managed to get that issue resolved after communicating with the company. Does my right hon. Friend...

Public Bill Committee: Parking (Code of Practice) Bill: Parking code (19 Jul 2018)

Andrew Selous: To elaborate on the excellent point made by my hon. Friend the Member for St Austell and Newquay, the proper functioning of a car park in a friendly, courteous and correct manner is essential to the health of our town centres. If people are scarred by receiving tickets, they will not come and shop, and keep our town centres going and our small businesses in business.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Obesity (19 Jul 2018)

Andrew Selous: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, if he will respond to the recommendations in the report, The current landscape of obesity services, published by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Obesity in May 2018; and if he will make a statement.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Obesity (19 Jul 2018)

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

Andrew Selous: Last Wednesday, a lady had her handbag stolen in Dunstable late at night. Although the thief was apprehended by two doorkeepers from a nearby nightclub, no police were able to attend, so the thief got away. That is just one example of the impact of “damping” on the funding of Bedfordshire police, combined with the removal of a 24/7 first responder presence. Does the Minister agree that...

Business of the House (12 Jul 2018)

Andrew Selous: May we have an urgent debate on the importance of equality under the law in promoting community cohesion? If I were to gain access to land illegally, cause damage and leave a large amount of litter, I would expect the full force of the law to come down on me in terms of paying for that damage and the clear-up costs, and my constituents would expect the same. Last year, about £250,000 was...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Relationships Alliance (12 Jul 2018)

Andrew Selous: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, if her Department will take steps to ensure that charities in the Relationships Alliance will be allocated funding from the public purse for existing relationship support contracts until funding allocations have been made under the Reducing Parental Conflict programme.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: MOJ Staff on Low Pay: Wages and Conditions (10 Jul 2018)

Andrew Selous: No one has to be a public servant, and it is really important that prison officers get up in the morning and enjoy going to work. There were some worrying figures recently showing an increase in the number of prison officers leaving the profession. What more can we do on induction and supervision to keep our excellent prison officers in post, where they are desperately needed?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (10 Jul 2018)

Andrew Selous: What analysis has the Ministry of Justice done on how well the public sector is doing in taking on ex-offenders in employment? Does the Minister agree that we cannot just exhort the private sector to step up to the plate in this area if the public sector is not leading by example?

Leaving the EU (9 Jul 2018)

Andrew Selous: In South West Bedfordshire, small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy. One of my constituents started his four years ago. It turns over £4 million and moves high-value capital equipment across EU-UK borders at short notice on a daily basis. Before Friday, he feared for the future of his business. Friday’s agreement gives him hope. I ask the Prime Minister to maintain her resolve...

Business of the House (5 Jul 2018)

Andrew Selous: Can we have an urgent debate on providing relief to communities whose lives and homes are being ruined by inappropriately routed traffic? The residents of Hockliffe have put up with days of really unacceptable disturbance. They want the A5 going through the village detrunked and a heavy goods vehicle ban, and this is entirely achievable as an acceptable alternative route exists.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Obesity: Children (3 Jul 2018)

Andrew Selous: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, with reference to Chapter 2 of the Childhood Obesity plan, what the timetable is for the consultation on a 9.00pm watershed on junk food adverts.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (3 Jul 2018)

Andrew Selous: Only 15% of people who start their working lives in entry-level jobs in this country manage to rise above that level. This country would be more prosperous and socially just, and would have a bigger tax base, if we could help them. What more can we do to help that segment of the population?

Backbench Business - Improving Air Qualitybackbench Business (28 Jun 2018)

Andrew Selous: The hon. Lady has mentioned Copenhagen. Is she aware that 30% of all journeys in Amsterdam are by bicycle, compared with 2% in London? That came about through a real effort of political will many years ago to recreate the city to be fit for cycling.

Backbench Business - Improving Air Qualitybackbench Business (28 Jun 2018)

Andrew Selous: During the inquiry, we learned from Professor Holgate, the lead clinician from the Royal College of Physicians, that poor air quality is the second biggest cause of avoidable mortality in this country, after smoking. It cuts short some 40,000 lives a year, and we know from the British Heart Foundation and others that even a day’s exposure to elevated levels of poor-quality air can increase...

Backbench Business - Improving Air Qualitybackbench Business (28 Jun 2018)

Andrew Selous: I am grateful to my parliamentary neighbour for giving us that personal example of how he was affected. I am afraid that the bad news does not stop there. Professor Holgate also told us that even in buses and taxis, for which researchers have done similar measurements, people are two to three times worse off than if they were walking on the street. Of course, we absolutely need to encourage...

Backbench Business - Improving Air Qualitybackbench Business (28 Jun 2018)

Andrew Selous: I completely agree with the hon. Lady. In another guise, I co-chair the all-party group on cycling, so I absolutely get the importance of cycling and walking. They are not just good for our health and do not just cut congestion and pollution, but are good for our mental health, helping us to socialise and build community. There are so many reasons why what the hon. Lady said is absolutely right.

Backbench Business - Improving Air Qualitybackbench Business (28 Jun 2018)

Andrew Selous: I could not agree more. As someone who over the Easter recess cycled from my home to my constituency office along the busy A5, with juggernauts going fairly close to me, I completely understand what the hon. Lady says. We need safe cycling, and all the evidence shows that more people will cycle if it is safer. That is especially true for children going to school from all the new housing...
