Offences Against the Person Act 1861 (5 Jun 2018)

Andrew Selous: Does the Secretary of State agree that the legal effect of repealing sections 58 and 59 of the Offences Against the Person Act 1861 would be to allow terminations right up to the point of birth?

Potholes and Road Maintenance (5 Jun 2018)

Andrew Selous: I am very grateful to the Minister for giving way. I know that he takes these issues seriously. Will he ask the Department for Transport to have a serious conversation with the Treasury about the severity of our winters? In central Bedfordshire, we have had 90 salt runs this year, compared with an average of 50. As he knows very well, salt does a great deal of damage to our roads. There is a...

Potholes and Road Maintenance (5 Jun 2018)

Andrew Selous: I reiterate the point on cycling that other hon. Members have made: 64 cyclists were killed or seriously injured in 2016, so it is a serious issue. On the value-for-money point, would the hon. Lady agree that using a Jetpatcher to repair a whole section of road, as Central Bedfordshire Council and other councils are doing, can sometimes be more efficient and a better use of taxpayers’ money...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Offenders: Housing and Benefits (5 Jun 2018)

Andrew Selous: Some local authorities claim that prisoners sent away from their home area have no local connection when they need to find housing. Will the Secretary of State have a word with the Secretary of State for Communities to make sure there is no discrimination among local authorities against ex-offenders; they just need to be treated fairly, the same as everyone else?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (5 Jun 2018)

Andrew Selous: While we regularly praise the likes of Greggs, Timpson and Halfords for the great work they do in employing ex-offenders, do Ministers agree that the time has now come no longer to allow employers that have made a blanket refusal to employ any ex-offenders to carry on such an approach in secret?

Fur Trade — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (4 Jun 2018)

Andrew Selous: I am extremely grateful to the hon. Gentleman, who is being very generous. I understand that we currently import fur from two other fellow European Union members, Poland and France. Does he know whether we have the power to prevent the imports as an EU member?

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Trains: Hydrogen (24 May 2018)

Andrew Selous: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what estimate he has made of the date on which the first UK trains will be converted to run on hydrogen.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Official Cars: Hydrogen (23 May 2018)

Andrew Selous: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, whether the Government plans to introduce more hydrogen fuel cell vehicles to its service fleet.

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Hydrogen (23 May 2018)

Andrew Selous: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, whether he plans to introduce an equivalent of the Faraday Challenge for hydrogen.

Transport Emissions: Urban Areas (22 May 2018)

Andrew Selous: Is the Secretary of State aware that there is action he could take now that would not cost the Government money and would not require him to legislate further? Regulation 98 of the Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986 states that it is already an offence to leave an engine idling when stuck in traffic or at traffic lights. Is he aware of Westminster City Council’s...

Sale of Puppies — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (21 May 2018)

Andrew Selous: I strongly support a ban on third-party puppy and kitten sales. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that it would be very useful for those people getting a dog for the first time to have a basic information pamphlet, pointing to where they can get help? That would do a lot to promote animal welfare.

Gaming Machines (17 May 2018)

Andrew Selous: I warmly congratulate the Minister on reducing the fixed odds betting terminals stake to £2, given the damage they do to family life and the huge waste of police time involved. May I express the hope that this decision heralds her Department also doing the right thing regarding the scourge of junk food advertising to children that we will need to deal with shortly?

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Government Departments: Recruitment (16 May 2018)

Andrew Selous: What the Government's policy is on support for the Ban the Box initiative.

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (16 May 2018)

Andrew Selous: We know that having a job massively reduces reoffending, so will the Government commit to lead through their own example by giving ex-offenders a fair chance of a job?

Electric Vehicles and Bicycles (9 May 2018)

Andrew Selous: It just remains for me to thank hon. Members from across the House—from four different parties—for coming to contribute to the debate. I hope that the Minister has seen the enthusiasm. We are generally willing the Government to make a success of both electric vehicle and electric bike take-up. We will carry on scrutinising this issue in the months and years to come and we look forward to...

Electric Vehicles and Bicycles (9 May 2018)

Andrew Selous: I will give you one of those minutes.

Electric Vehicles and Bicycles (9 May 2018)

Andrew Selous: I beg to move, That this House has considered take-up of electric vehicles and bicycles. I am extremely grateful to Members across the House for their support for what I believe to be a very important debate. This is the third time that I have secured a debate in this Chamber on the take-up of electric vehicles. It is such an important issue for many reasons: electric vehicles will help us to...

Electric Vehicles and Bicycles (9 May 2018)

Andrew Selous: If we get this strategy right, there will be more than enough jobs for everyone. I am absolutely with my hon. Friend in wanting enough good-quality jobs. In 2016 a fifth of all electric vehicles sold in Europe were produced at the Nissan plant in Sunderland. Looking forward, the United Kingdom has a genuine opportunity to capture a significant part of the global market by 2030, which could be...

Electric Vehicles and Bicycles (9 May 2018)

Andrew Selous: I understand the concerns. However, if Members for constituencies that make conventional vehicles will bear with me, by the end of my remarks they will be optimistic about there being more than enough jobs for everyone. Bringing forward the electric vehicles target to 2030 from 2040 would enable the United Kingdom to reduce our oil imports by almost 50% by 2035, saving £6.3 billion annually....

Electric Vehicles and Bicycles (9 May 2018)

Andrew Selous: With some of the new chargers, an electric vehicle range of 300 miles is entirely possible. At the moment, I agree with my right hon. Friend, but if we play this right it will not be long before he will be able to motor up to east Yorkshire in comfort in an electric vehicle. Nissan claims that by 2030, widespread adoption of a vehicle-to-grid service could save consumers up to £2.4 billion...
