Gaming Machines (17 May 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: I was pleased that the Minister mentioned the relationship between the location of B2 gaming machines and areas of high deprivation. In the three Hull constituencies, some £9.1 million was lost in 2015-16 on fixed odds betting terminals. Does more need to be done in our schools to raise awareness of gambling addiction?

Business of the House (17 May 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: The Leader of the House will know that I have raised the issue of antisocial behaviour on a number of occasions, particularly the scourge of motorbikes being used for antisocial behaviour. May we have a debate to look at what other measures we can introduce to deal with that, and in particular whether we can get all petrol stations to stop selling petrol to people driving motorbikes...

East Coast Main Line (16 May 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: It looks to me like the Secretary of State’s golden ministerial touch has worked again to produce a catalogue of failure: his Department’s failure; the franchise agreement failing; incompetent train operators; and taxpayers and passengers losing out yet again. Does he plan to make an announcement about a £500 million bailout of Crossrail, which was reported in the newspapers...

Business of the House (10 May 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: The Leader of the House will agree that a key part of the northern powerhouse involves equipping our young people with the skills and qualifications they need for the new industries that we have been attracting to Hull, particularly the renewables industry. Hull College is currently experiencing strike action over so-called “fresh start” plans to cut courses, reduce student...

Royal Assent: Private Members’ Bills: Money Resolutions (10 May 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: I like the Leader of the House a great deal but I think that in this case she is wrong. A little bit of humility about the fact that the Conservatives did not win the general election and did not command a majority for their manifesto would go a long way in this House. There is a clear will in Parliament as to what should happen. I hope that the words of the hon. Member for Cleethorpes...

G4S: Immigration Removal Centres (8 May 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: May I say to the Minister that this is an urgent question, not a statement that she has come to the House to make? She has been brought here to answer questions. G4S seems to be able to fail in a variety of contracts, without any consequences at all. There have been failures in prisons, electronic tagging, secure units and now immigration detention centres. When are the Government going to...

Learning Disabilities Mortality Review (8 May 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: The Minister has spoken a lot about being committed to improvements in this area. Does she think it is acceptable that she did not know a report in this important area was to be published on Friday? Why did she not come to make a statement today, rather than waiting to be summoned to the House by my hon. Friend the Member for Worsley and Eccles South (Barbara Keeley)?

Breast Cancer Screening (2 May 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: The statement the Secretary of State has made today is truly shocking, and many women and their families will be very worried this afternoon. The Secretary of State said that it is estimated that 309,000 women in this group are still alive and that the first 65,000 letters are going out this week. Why are the letters not going out this afternoon to all 309,000 women? Why are we having to...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: One Yorkshire (30 Apr 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: Does the Minister recognise that the Humber economic area has to be included in any devolution deal for Yorkshire because of the energy estuary, which is vital to the northern powerhouse?

Business of the House (26 Apr 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: Yesterday pupils at St Anthony’s Primary School told me that their local park had been vandalised by yobs. When I met the police last week, they told me about their frustrations when, for example, yobs with 19 breaches of criminal behaviour orders appear before the courts but no action is taken. May we please have a debate about why, since 2010, we do not seem to have been able to hold...

Home Office Removal Targets (26 Apr 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: Immigration is one of the most high-profile areas the Home Secretary is responsible for, and one that the public care deeply about. Was she asleep when she did not know there were targets for the removal of illegal immigrants?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Common Fisheries Policy (26 Apr 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: Whether he plans for the UK to leave the common fisheries policy after 2020.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Common Fisheries Policy (26 Apr 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: The Secretary of State has admitted that the Government accepted a “sub-optimal outcome” for the UK’s fishing industry in the Brexit negotiations, although I think that people in Hull would call it something else. Can the Minister guarantee that, at the end of the transition period, our fishing rights will not be traded away for some other political or economic priority?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Upskirting (24 Apr 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: What his policy is on creating a specific sexual offence of upskirting.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Upskirting (24 Apr 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: I, too, am using my inner Millicent Fawcett courage to raise this issue. In Scotland, the offences of upskirting and downblousing are covered by the 2009 Act. Surely the Secretary of State accepts that the same could be done in this country.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Business of the House (19 Apr 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: In light of the decision of the Scottish Government, followed by the Welsh Government, to put the healthcare and dignity of women first by allowing abortion tablets to be taken at home, may we have a statement from the Secretary of State for England Health explaining why English women still have to attend an abortion clinic to get those medically prescribed tablets, and why we are still...
