Merchant Shipping (Homosexual Conduct) Bill (20 Jan 2017)

Mark Tami: There will be those who will argue, “Well, the law has moved on so there’s no point in doing that,” but the symbolism of sweeping it away is so important.

Kashmir: Holocaust Memorial Day (19 Jan 2017)

Mark Tami: My hon. Friend has painted a moving picture. Does she agree that we sometimes think these kinds of events stopped at the end of the war, but there were dreadful pogroms after the war as well, and that should not be forgotten?

Leaving the EU: Infrastructure in Wales — [Robert Flello in the Chair] (17 Jan 2017)

Mark Tami: Before my hon. Friend moves off this point—Airbus is probably the best example. If a wing is not finished, the workers will follow the wing, whether to Bremen or France, to make sure that that is done. Are we really saying that they will have to fill out forms, do all sorts of things and wait God knows how many weeks for that to happen? The problem is that we live in a very uncertain...

Exiting the Eu: Businesses in Wales (14 Dec 2016)

Mark Tami: My hon. Friend makes an important point. For Airbus, for example, if a wing is not fully finished in Broughton but needs to be fitted in Toulouse or Bremen, they will send workers, chase the wing and carry on the work that needs to be done. We clearly must not be in a position where they will have to apply for some sort of work permit to do that—that would be ludicrous—but we just do not...

Exiting the Eu: Businesses in Wales (14 Dec 2016)

Mark Tami: The focus is often on the big primes—my constituency has Airbus and Toyota—but I am particularly worried about the supply chain, especially if it supplies other parts of a business in Europe. In that case, companies might think that they are better placed there and relocate there, which would cause massive harm to all our areas.

Health Service Medical Supplies (Costs) Bill: Review of the impact of the Act on pricing, research and development, and innovation (6 Dec 2016)

Mark Tami: Does my right hon. Friend agree that we have to educate people and make them aware of what can happen, particularly given the rising obesity levels?

Previous Business – Commons: Select Committee (5 Dec 2016)

Administration: Election Planning and Services. 4:45 pm; Room 16, Palace of Westminster
Witnesses: Mark Tami MP, Opposition Accommodation Whip Mr Robert Syms MP, Government Accomodation Whip Fiona Channon, Head of Accommodation and Logistics, House of Commons Rob Greig, Director Dan Cook, Portfolio Manager, Parliamentary Digital Service

Child Cancer — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (28 Nov 2016)

Mark Tami: As my hon. Friend is making clear, we have to have specialist centres, but we must not think that we can have them on our doorstep everywhere. That will just not happen, and it would not make sense for it to happen. If we have specialist centres, however, people will have to travel, and families need support and somewhere to stay. I put on record my support for the Ronald McDonald House...

Child Cancer — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (28 Nov 2016)

Mark Tami: Sorry for talking about my experience again, but my son was very fortunate to find a donor. He had a stem cell transplant in the end. As a parent, that was great for us, but we were with other parents who were not so fortunate and who saw their children pass away because they could not find a donor. The awful thing is that there are people out there who would be a match, but they do not know...

Child Cancer — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (28 Nov 2016)

Mark Tami: As a parent who went through this when my son was nine, I know that the news is devastating for parents. What happens to the family around the child and the level of support that is provided are also important. I was an MP at the time, with a good salary, but a lot of people do not have that level of income, or perhaps they do not have other family members to come round. We really need to put...

Child Cancer — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (28 Nov 2016)

Mark Tami: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that it is not only the physical side of the illness that we must address, but what happens to children if they get through their illness—hopefully they do—including all the questions they will have, such as “Why has this happened to me?” and “Why do I look different?”, their reintegration into school and their anger? We might put a lot of money into...

Nissan: Sunderland: Cultural Property (Armed Conflicts) Bill [Lords] (31 Oct 2016)

Mark Tami: Does the Secretary of State accept, though, that, regardless of whether an item is legal or not, if a country falls into a war situation, suspicion will fall on every item of property that would previously have been dealt with perfectly legally?

Backbench Business - Young People’S Mental Healthbackbench Business (27 Oct 2016)

Mark Tami: Does my hon. Friend agree that, in some cases, children have to become badly ill before the problem is addressed? The problem should be addressed in the first place so that they do not get into that state.

Petition - Implementation of the 1995 and 2011 Pensions Acts (26 Oct 2016)

Mark Tami: The petition relates to implementation of the 1995 and 2011 Pensions Acts and the WASPI—Women Against State Pension Inequality—campaign. I want to place on record my thanks to Caron Fahy, Lynne Dorm, Rosemarie Phoenix, Janet Shefras, Julia Clay and Anne Tapp for collecting nearly 400 signatures in Alyn and Deeside. The petition states: The petition of residents of Alyn and Deeside,...

Criminal Finances Bill (25 Oct 2016)

Mark Tami: While we support the Bill, does my right hon. Friend agree that the danger is that we might drive even more business to the overseas territories and encourage even more of the problems that have already been identified?

Criminal Finances Bill (25 Oct 2016)

Mark Tami: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Health Service Medical Supplies (Costs) Bill (24 Oct 2016)

Mark Tami: My hon. Friend will know—I am sure that we all know this—that there is a difference between the list price that is advertised and the price that the NHS actually pays. That is a very important point, and we have to be very careful that, in gaining all this information, we do actually bring down the cost for the NHS. Those companies may well charge other people higher amounts, and we need...

Health Service Medical Supplies (Costs) Bill (24 Oct 2016)

Mark Tami: Does my hon. Friend agree that we have to be careful not to discourage drug companies from doing research, particularly into those rarer illnesses, because they would not see a financial return?

BHS: Industrial Strategy (20 Oct 2016)

Mark Tami: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that Governments have tended to intervene when a sector is failing, but they have failed to support a successful sector because we in this country step back and say, “Why should we support it? It’s doing fine on its own.”? Is that not one of the big problems that we have faced for many years?

Scamming: Vulnerable Individuals (8 Sep 2016)

Mark Tami: Is the hon. Gentleman as worried as I am about the number of people who respond to communications? He mentioned the lottery. Once people have responded to one communication, they will receive many more. I heard of one person who received up to 10 or 20 a day. Moreover, the communications are coming from abroad, which means that they cannot be intercepted and stopped. It is causing a great...
