Police Funding Settlement (13 Dec 2018)

Andrew Selous: As someone who has campaigned vociferously on behalf of Bedfordshire police, I say thank you for enabling Bedfordshire to raise an extra £8 million next year, which is very welcome indeed. Does the Policing Minister share my outrage at the escalation in the theft of tools from vans? We have just had Small Business Saturday. Someone who steals tools from a work person’s van takes their...

The Prime Minister Was Asked: Engagements (12 Dec 2018)

Andrew Selous: Does the Prime Minister agree that we all owe a huge debt of gratitude to our police officers, prison officers and probation staff, who are in the frontline of keeping us all safe, which is the first duty of any Government? In that regard, may I ask her to take a close and personal interest in the 2019-20 police funding settlement?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Further Education Funding (11 Dec 2018)

Andrew Selous: Our FE colleges are great poverty-fighting institutions that provide vital ladders of opportunity for our constituents. Given that school pay rises have been fully funded and FE has only had 0.1%, is there not a case for parity of esteem for teachers in FE colleges?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (11 Dec 2018)

Business of the House: [3rd Allotted Day] (6 Dec 2018)

Andrew Selous: On Tuesday, the House of Commons Library wrote to me to say: “The backstop comes into force automatically, if the Withdrawal Agreement is signed, at the end of the transition period.” This morning, the Prime Minister said: “If we get to the point where it might be needed, we have a choice as to what we do, so we don’t even have to go into the backstop at that point.” Can the...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Care Homes (3 Dec 2018)

Andrew Selous: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what assessment he has made of the (a) level of harm caused to children and (b) amount of police time expended as a result of the absence of regulations governing over 16 year old children's homes; if he will (i) instruct Ofsted to undertake inspections of those homes and (ii) introduce a fit and proper person test for directors of those homes; and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Police Funding (3 Dec 2018)

Andrew Selous: First, let me thank the Minister for the extra £4.6 million that he gave us last week. But does he agree that Bedfordshire has been underfunded since damping was introduced in 2004 and that part of what we need to do is refocus the police’s priorities on the bread and butter crime issues, which perhaps involves getting others to take more responsibility for missing children and mental...

Business of the House (29 Nov 2018)

Andrew Selous: May we have an urgent debate on the totally unacceptable lack of regulation of 16-plus children’s homes? This really matters for two reasons. First, many vulnerable children are in huge danger because they are not properly supervised and they run away a great many times. Secondly, there is a huge waste of police time going into finding these children, which means that our police officers...

Written Answers — Home Office: Action Fraud (27 Nov 2018)

Andrew Selous: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what information his Department holds on the number of people who attempted to make reports of fraud to Action Fraud over the latest 12-month period for which data is available; of those who attempted to make such reports how many were successful over that period; how much enforcement activity was undertaken as a result of those reports;...

Health and Social Care: Health Inequalities (England) (27 Nov 2018)

Andrew Selous: As it is the most deprived children who are most overweight, will the Minister call on Kellogg’s to follow the example of Nestlé and put traffic light colours on all its products so that people can make healthier choices?

Road Safety and the Legal Framework — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (20 Nov 2018)

Andrew Selous: I associate myself completely with the comments made about the need for greater clarity on the definition of careless and dangerous driving, for tougher penalties and tougher action on driving disqualification, and for tougher penalties on hit and run drivers. I will raise some issues that have not been mentioned so far, which are highly relevant to road safety. I have constituents who work...

EU Exit Negotiations: Business of the House (15 Nov 2018)

Andrew Selous: May we have an urgent debate on the way in which private landlords treat some charities? Families United Network is the most amazing charity, serving a lot of my constituents, and it is facing having its rent doubled, which will probably put it out of its premises. This charity provides respite care that is desperately needed by families with disabled children. I visited the charity and it...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (14 Nov 2018)

Andrew Selous: The Prime Minister is to be commended for initiating her race disparity audit, which showed, among other facts, that Traveller children have the worst educational, health and employment outcomes of almost any group. Given the acute distress also caused to many settled residents by policy in this area, and given the support yesterday for my ten-minute rule Bill calling for a review of this...

Gypsy and Traveller Communities (Housing, Planning and Education) (13 Nov 2018)

Andrew Selous: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to make provision about periodical local authority reviews of the housing needs of Gypsy and Traveller communities; to make provision for the conversion of caravan sites into settled accommodation; to require local authorities to provide temporary caravan stopping sites where there is a demonstrated need; to create a criminal offence of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Family Court Reform (13 Nov 2018)

Andrew Selous: Does the Minister agree that the consultation on divorce law reform is an opportunity to look into ways to cause less harm to children of all parents who separate, as well as to strengthen families along the lines of the marriage and relationship support initiative brought in by Lord Mackay?

Police Pension Liabilities (6 Nov 2018)

Andrew Selous: Some Members across the House are hoping that December’s police funding settlement may bring good news about dealing with unfair damping, which affects 19 police forces. However, if there is good news about damping, there would be concern that that may be counteracted by pension costs. Is my hon. Friend able to say anything about that?

Bill Presented: Road Safety (5 Nov 2018)

Andrew Selous: I know of my hon. Friend’s commitment to cycling, which is very welcome, but is he aware that New York City has recently introduced, very cost-effectively, cycle tracks on resurfaced carriageway? Does he think that that is something that the United Kingdom could learn from as a cost-effective way of making cycling safer?
