British Library Board (Power to Borrow) Bill (13 Mar 2020)

Mark Tami: I wonder whether the hon. Gentleman has been to St Deiniol’s library in Hawarden in my constituency, which is the home of Gladstone. What is interesting about that library is that Gladstone had a habit of crossing out the things he disagreed with and writing in what he thought was appropriate, and it is fascinating to see those books.

Education (Guidance about Costs of School Uniforms) Bill (13 Mar 2020)

Mark Tami: My hon. Friend makes a very important point. Sometimes people are sent home for really petty things like the wrong colour of socks. I know of a case in which a badge was cut out and put on a black jumper, but that still did not conform with the requirement for what was supposed to be the appropriate jumper.

British Steel Industry (10 Mar 2020)

Mark Tami: My hon. Friend is making a powerful case. Does he agree that we cannot just carry on managing decline and that we must invest for the long term? Once a plant goes, it is gone; very rarely do they come back into operation.

British Steel Industry (10 Mar 2020)

Mark Tami: There is an important point here: these are not workers who have refused to change; in fact, they are quite the reverse. They have been at the cutting edge. They want to do everything to make the plants as efficient as possible, but with all these other factors counting against them, there has to be a point where something changes.

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Dogs: Electronic Training Aids (9 Mar 2020)

Mark Tami: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, whether the Government plans to bring forward legislative proposals to ban the use of (a) remote controlled hand-held and (b) bark-activated electronic training collars for dogs.

Work and Pensions: Universal Credit and State Pension Payments (9 Mar 2020)

Mark Tami: What steps she is taking to reduce the length of time between a claimant’s last universal credit payment and first state pension payment.

Work and Pensions: Universal Credit and State Pension Payments (9 Mar 2020)

Mark Tami: The announcement in the written statement on Thursday was extremely welcome and a great victory for hundreds of thousands of pensioners throughout the country. I thank all Members from all parties who signed early-day motion 129, which highlighted the issue. As it was clearly a bad policy in the first place, what redress will the Government offer to those pensioners who have already suffered loss?

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Means-tested Benefits: Coronavirus (6 Mar 2020)

Mark Tami: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, whether people self-isolating due to possible covid-19 infection will be exempted from conditionality requirements for means-tested benefits.

Written Answers — Treasury: Employment: Taxation (6 Mar 2020)

Mark Tami: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what assessment he has made of the potential (a) short-term and (b) long-term effect on seasonal workers in the offshore wind industry of the changes to IR35.

Written Answers — Treasury: Employment: Taxation (6 Mar 2020)

Mark Tami: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what assessment he has made of the maximum appropriate rate of (a) income tax and (b) national insurance for workers when calculated together in each income tax band affected by the changes to IR35.

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Social Security Benefits: Coronavirus (5 Mar 2020)

Mark Tami: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what plans her Department has made to ensure that potential staff shortages due to covid-19 do not delay processing of benefits applications; and if she will make it her policy to backdate benefits for any claimants whose application is delayed due to staff shortages.

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Fireworks: Noise (3 Mar 2020)

Mark Tami: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what plans he has to bring forward legislative proposals to impose a maximum noise level of 90 decibels on fireworks sold for private use.

Welsh Affairs (27 Feb 2020)

Mark Tami: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

Welsh Affairs (27 Feb 2020)

Mark Tami: I raised this issue in the Chamber the other day when we had the English-only votes and I was unable to express my view on funding for Countess of Chester Hospital. That hospital was built to serve Deeside and Chester and the area around it. An English Member of Parliament miles from that area is allowed to express a view on it, whereas I am not, even though many people in Alyn and Deeside go...

Welsh Affairs (27 Feb 2020)

Mark Tami: rose—

Welsh Affairs (27 Feb 2020)

Mark Tami: The Secretary of State has told us where he has been, but does he know when the Prime Minister has been to Wales or whether he is intending to go there?

Special Educational Needs: Isle of Wight: UK Armed Forces: Wales’s Contribution (25 Feb 2020)

Mark Tami: The hon. Lady has mentioned the F-35. The work on that aircraft is based in Alyn and Deeside, which I obviously welcome; it is vital that we have it. However, over the years, there has been a lot of uncertainty regarding that site because of the chopping and changing that has happened, with the MOD changing how contracts are placed and moving work forward or back. We need longer-term planning...

UK Fisheries — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (12 Feb 2020)

Mark Tami: The hon. Lady mentioned the app. A number of fishermen have told me that it is difficult to use: certain species are difficult to record on it and, in some cases, it does not seem to work at all. I think it was given a one-star rating on Google for its effectiveness. Does she think that needs to be looked at?

Historical Stillbirth Burials and Cremations (6 Feb 2020)

Mark Tami: We all agree that the woman, and indeed the whole family, should receive that psychological support if they need it, but just saying it does not mean that this help is getting to the people it should be reaching. In many cases, people find it almost impossible to get that support.

NHS Funding Bill: Funding Settlement for the health service in England (4 Feb 2020)

Mark Tami: I have never been a member of the Procedure Committee. The Countess of Chester, which is a foundation hospital, has trustees who are elected from Wales. They are elected and can take part in decision making, but as an elected representative in this place, I cannot, apparently.
