Social Care (7 Dec 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: May I say how nice it is to see my hon. Friend the Member for Worsley and Eccles South (Barbara Keeley) back in her rightful place on the Front Bench? I endorse what the Chair of the Select Committee, the hon. Member for Totnes (Dr Wollaston) has said to the Minister. Does the Minister regret that the Chancellor failed to mention social care at all in the Budget?

Royal Assent: Business of the House (7 Dec 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: May I send the very best wishes from the current city of culture to all those bidding to be the next city of culture? Radio Humberside this week reported that there has been an upsurge in the use of mopeds to commit antisocial behaviour, and nuisance and criminal offences, in Orchard Park in my constituency. May we have a debate to discuss why this is happening and the practical steps we can...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Prisoner Rehabilitation: Sporting Activities (5 Dec 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: As well as sport, does the Minister agree that arts and crafts could also play a part in the rehabilitation of offenders? Prisoners in Hull Prison were involved in creating a replica of Jason, Amy Johnson’s plane, for city of culture year. It is now in Hull Paragon train station. Unfortunately, the Ministry of Justice seems to want to move it to York. Will he look at that again and keep...

Social Mobility Commission (4 Dec 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: The Minister is a plain-speaking Yorkshireman. Could he use those attributes to explain why he thinks the whole board resigned?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (4 Dec 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: The northern powerhouse Minister mentioned HS2 as being the best transport investment for the north, but surely the best transport investment for the north would be “Crossrail for the north”, linking the great cities of the north with high-speed rail.

Work, Health and Disability (30 Nov 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: Will the Secretary of State update the House on the progress made for people damaged by the state when they received contaminated blood products during the contaminated blood scandal, particularly in relation to passporting benefits to them so that they do not keep having to go through regular assessments?

Business of the House (30 Nov 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: When the Science Museum said that Hull could not have Amy Johnson’s plane, Jason, for the city of culture celebrations this year, local artist Leonard J Brown worked with inmates at Hull Prison to create a replica, which is now in Hull Paragon station. Can we please have a statement from the Ministry of Justice on why it has now decided that that plane, which means so much to the city,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Rail Electrification (30 Nov 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: What his policy is on rail electrification.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Rail Electrification (30 Nov 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: No rail system can be called high speed unless it is electric. After blocking Hull’s privately financed rail electrification scheme a year ago, yesterday, the Transport Secretary told the House—I am sure he will recall this—that the Liverpool to Hull Crossrail for the north would happen in parallel with the Surrey to Hertfordshire Crossrail 2. Will both lines be electrified,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (30 Nov 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: Further to my earlier question to the Secretary of State about Crossrail for the north, will he confirm that Crossrail 2 will not be wholly electrified?

Rail Update (29 Nov 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: I was disappointed that the Secretary of State did not attend the debate on transport in the north on 6 November. He has talked about his priorities for transforming services in this country. Which does he think will happen first, Crossrail for the north between Liverpool and Hull or Crossrail mark 2 for London, between Surrey and Hertfordshire?

Maternity Safety Strategy (28 Nov 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: I very much welcome the Secretary of State’s approach to more openness and transparency in the NHS around baby deaths. However, he will remember signing a letter in May 2016, along with the then Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and the then Secretary of State for Justice, on an independent inquiry into the baby ashes scandal in Hull. That inquiry has never...

Industrial Strategy (27 Nov 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: To improve growth and prosperity in this country, we need to ensure fair transport investment in all parts of the country. I have just received a written ministerial answer showing that the disparity in investment between the south and the north has widened since 2012. What is the Secretary of State going to do to get the Department for Transport on board with his strategy?

Forensic Evidence: Alleged Manipulation (27 Nov 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: Following on from the question asked by my hon. Friend the Member for Heywood and Middleton (Liz McInnes), the Forensic Science Regulator said in January that she needed statutory powers to enforce regulation as soon as possible—not in 2022, but as soon as possible. Will the Minister think again?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Topical Questions (27 Nov 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: The Minister has already spoken about the important trade role that the Red Arrows play as ambassadors for great British aeronautical engineering. Will the Secretary of State, who knows East Yorkshire well and knows how important those skilled jobs are to Brough, look again at the request from 142 Members on both sides of the House for renewal of the fleet for the Red Arrows?

Business of the House (23 Nov 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: The whole of the northern powerhouse section in the Budget Red Book has 376 words, but there are 453 words just on the Cambridge-Milton Keynes-Oxford growth corridor. May we have a debate about what exactly the Government have got against funding and fair investment for the north?

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. This morning in Cabinet Office questions, the First Secretary of State claimed that the consultation on the contaminated blood scandal had been extended until the end of October this year at the request of the all-party group. That is not correct. In fact, the all-party group had asked for an extension of the original date of the consultation, which was...

Petition - Bae Systems Jobs in Brough (21 Nov 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: I rise to present a petition—[Interruption.] I will wait.
