Iran: Vauxhall (Redundancies) (16 Oct 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: It is another week in Parliament, another set of job losses in the north and another Minister being forced to come to the House to explain what the Government are doing. What has happened to the Government’s northern powerhouse strategy?

Iran (16 Oct 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: Can the agreement carry on without the United States? What is the practical implication of the US position?

Retail Energy (12 Oct 2017)

Business of the House (12 Oct 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: Can we please have a debate on the future of the Red Arrows? For decades, the Red Arrows display team has showcased the best of British aeronautical manufacturing around the world. The Hawk trainers used by the Red Arrows and built at Brough just outside Hull had been due to go out of service in 2020. As the Prime Minister, David Cameron, said in 2014 and as the lead pilot, Squadron Leader...

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (11 Oct 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: Next week, the Government’s consultation on the contaminated blood scandal will close. As the Department of Health is an implicated party, many people are refusing to take part in the consultation. Will the Cabinet Office now take immediate control of the consultation, because otherwise the rules of natural justice will be offended?

European Union (Approvals) Bill: Baby Loss Awareness Week (10 Oct 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: I am very grateful to be called to speak in this debate. I took part in the debate last year and was very moved by the contributions. I am pleased that we have such excellent speakers again today. I wish to pay tribute to the all-party group for the wonderful work that it has done, and to say to the Government that their record of making improvements and investing in this area is to be...

Bae Systems Military Air & Information Sites: Job Losses (10 Oct 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: The Minister will win no friends in east Yorkshire by saying that people who might be made redundant from BAE Systems can go and get jobs in the renewables industry at Siemens. We need both sets of jobs in both industries—both, not one—to flourish in our area. I am not convinced at all that the Minister is taking our sovereign capability seriously if these jobs go. That is...

Uk Plans for Leaving the EU (9 Oct 2017)

Monarch Airlines (9 Oct 2017)

Business of the House (14 Sep 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: I really do not know how the Leader of the House is keeping a straight face when she makes those comments to the heart of democracy in this country. I am sure the Leader of the House will be aware of the landmark news this week that offshore wind energy is now cheaper than new nuclear energy, so can we please have a debate on this new industry, and on what more the Government can do to...

Police Pay and Funding (14 Sep 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: The Minister ended her response to the urgent question by talking about the prudent use of reserves, but why does she think she knows better than the National Audit Office, which demands that police forces keep adequate reserves and says that taking staffing costs out of reserves is financially irresponsible? My chief constable in Humberside explained to me last week how important reserves...

Diana R. Johnson: When her Department plans to make an announcement on its review of fixed odds betting terminals.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Fixed Odds Betting Terminals (14 Sep 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: I thank the Minister for reiterating that answer, but has she given any thought to the fact that the gambling industry is failing to meet the 0.1% donation suggested by GambleAware to help to fund research and the treatment of people suffering from gambling addictions? Will she now act on that?

Attorney General: Domestic Violence (14 Sep 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: Last weekend, I met a woman who had been subjected to horrific domestic abuse by her partner since the age of 13, and it had carried on for many years. She was concerned that the relatively new offence of coercive and controlling behaviour had never been used against that perpetrator, and that it may not be being used as much as it should be. Will the Attorney General look at that when he...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: University Technical Colleges (11 Sep 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: Will the Minister join me in congratulating Alan Johnson, the former MP for Kingston upon Hull West and Hessle, who fought for many years to get the Ron Dearing UTC opened in Hull? It has actually opened its doors this morning for the very first time, and one of its priorities is to encourage more young women to study engineering and technical subjects.
