Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Neighbourhood Policing (16 Oct 2017)

Mike Penning: If the Government are going to support the private Member’s Bill mentioned by the hon. Member for Halifax (Holly Lynch), it is important that the Ministry of Justice and the Crown Prosecution Service play their part as well, and that, when the Sentencing Council suggests that judges give more severe sentences for assaults on police officers and other emergency workers, they do what it...

Petition - the Redwell Fields, Wellingborough: Employment Tribunals (13 Sep 2017)

Mike Penning: One of things that was so distressing to Anna was that she was cross-examined about whether she had had conversations with her husband and asked where was the proof. There is no proof that I proposed to my wife. It was a very personal thing between me and her—there is no written evidence about the proposal. To say in a cross-examination that she had no proof that her husband wanted to...

Petition - the Redwell Fields, Wellingborough: Employment Tribunals (13 Sep 2017)

Mike Penning: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Petition - the Redwell Fields, Wellingborough: Employment Tribunals (13 Sep 2017)

Mike Penning: Can I just say that I have had the honour of kissing the Queen, so I am a right hon. Member? That might give the Minister a bit of time to find the right page. It is sometimes hard to do that; it has happened to me on more than one occasion. It was a great pleasure to have kissed the Queen’s hand.

Petition - the Redwell Fields, Wellingborough: Employment Tribunals (13 Sep 2017)

Mike Penning: I thank the Minister for agreeing to meet my constituent. She has opened a Pandora’s box, because she has quite rightly said that she wants to see other evidence to show that this is not a one-off. I took advice, as she probably saw from the article in the Law Society Gazette, from eminent lawyers, including Kerry Underwood from Underwoods Solicitors, who is a specialist in this area....

Petition - the Redwell Fields, Wellingborough: Employment Tribunals (13 Sep 2017)

Mike Penning: I will raise the case of a constituent that has far-reaching concerns for those across the House. I have been joined by my right hon. Friend the Member for Basingstoke (Mrs Miller), who will probably intervene. The subject of the debate is an unfair dismissal tribunal. My constituent Anna Hardie came to see me at my surgery. Her husband had been ill for some time. She was very worried...

Petition - the Redwell Fields, Wellingborough: Employment Tribunals (13 Sep 2017)

Mike Penning: Absolutely. My right hon. Friend touches on exactly what I am coming to. Because the different tribunals have different rules, it is really difficult to find out whether someone’s exceptional circumstances will be accepted. One thing Anna and I discussed in my surgery is what would happen if someone had had a nervous breakdown, had been sectioned or had been in a road traffic accident...

Petition - Development in Kings Langley (13 Sep 2017)

Mike Penning: I wish to present a petition that was put together by the community in Kings Langley in my constituency. Even though we have had to slightly amend the wording for parliamentary rules, 1,200-plus of my constituents signed the petition against the inappropriate development proposed in Kings Langley. The petition states: The Petition of residents of the UK, Declares that the proposal to cram 40...

Grenfell Tower and Building Safety (5 Sep 2017)

Mike Penning: I thank the Secretary of State for his statement, not least because it gives me my first opportunity to put on record that my thoughts and prayers are with the community and those who have lost their loved ones and those who have been injured in the Grenfell disaster. I also want to put on record my admiration for the emergency services. I am a former member of the fire service; we were never...

Grenfell Tower and Building Safety (5 Sep 2017)

Mike Penning: Right hon. Friend.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Cyber-crime (5 Sep 2017)

Mike Penning: When will we see the draft of the victims’ Bill, which was committed to by the Government and Her Majesty’s Opposition?

Business of the House (13 Jul 2017)

Mike Penning: It has been a long time since I asked a question on health from the Back Benches. I am sure that the Leader of the House knows that Hemel Hempstead is the largest town in Hertfordshire, but that in 2006—we know which Government were in power—the acute services at Hemel Hempstead Hospital were closed. We now have clinical commissioning groups, but they seem to be completely...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Royal Navy (13 Mar 2017)

Mike Penning: In this year of the Royal Navy, the service is deployed at home and around the globe 365 days a year, protecting national interests and promoting our prosperity. Whether maintaining our continuous at-sea deterrent, providing reassurance to British overseas territories or conducting counter-piracy and counter-narcotics patrols, we will be there when we are needed.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Royal Navy (13 Mar 2017)

Mike Penning: We will look carefully at this as the new ships come on stream and as we spend £63 billion on the Royal Navy in the next few years. We will ensure that Devonport gets a very good look-in.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Royal Navy (13 Mar 2017)

Mike Penning: I am sure that, when the Type 23 frigate comes in, it certainly will—[Interruption.] Type 31; I apologise. We have extensive NATO commitments around the world: HMS Ocean is just returning from six months in the Gulf and will be in Gibraltar soon; and HMS Daring is down off the strait of Hormuz. As for HMS Dragon, I was woken in the early hours because one of our civilian yachts was in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Royal Navy (13 Mar 2017)

Mike Penning: We will have new frigates, new submarines, new aircraft carriers, new patrol vessels, and new aircraft to support them—£63 billion of expenditure in the year of the Navy and going forward.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Royal Navy (13 Mar 2017)

Mike Penning: The right hon. Gentleman is absolutely right. That is exactly what we have been pressing for along with our coalition colleagues for some time. We have been training the coastguard, and we want to do more, but we cannot enter that area at the moment.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Royal Navy (13 Mar 2017)

Mike Penning: We would all agree that the Royal Navy is capable of doing exactly what we ask it to do. As we are now turning back to eastern Europe, which we thought we had turned away from, with our land and air defences, that is exactly what the Royal Navy will be doing elsewhere.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Royal Navy (13 Mar 2017)

Mike Penning: If the Scottish people want their armed forces to be run down and demoralised, they should listen to what the hon. Gentleman just said.
