Scallop Fishing: Bay of Seine: Business of the House (13 Sep 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: I know how much the Leader of the House cares about the early years of a child’s life, and I understand that she is chairing a cross-Government working party on that subject. Would she be open to a Government debate on the important role of maintained nursery schools, which play a really important part in some of our most disadvantaged areas in reaching out to families and helping...

Police: Financial Sustainability (12 Sep 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: May I pay tribute to the bravery of the police officers in Humberside who ran towards a serious incident in Hull city centre yesterday? Despite the best efforts of our excellent police and crime commissioner, Keith Hunter, to refocus resources to the frontline, we still have fewer officers than in 2010. We have lost equipment, including the force’s helicopter, and powers for police...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Household Debt (11 Sep 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: Kingston upon Hull has the third highest levels of household debt in England and Wales while Kingston upon Thames has the second lowest. Why does the Minister think that is? What is he going to do about it?

Integrated Care — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (6 Sep 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: I am very interested in what the hon. Lady is saying about Scotland. Does she know that areas of England have integrated financial plans involving local government and health to try to bring together that continuity and put patients at the centre?

Integrated Care — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (6 Sep 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: Again, that is very interesting. A good model of that, which is already happening in England, is in my own backyard Hull. The hospitals have agreed that they will take a sum of money and will not look for additional money from the CCG if they need to treat more people. That is an integration of social care—the local council—and the acute sector, which is important in making this...

Integrated Care — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (6 Sep 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: We are very ably led by the hon. Lady on the Health and Social Care Committee. The Committee’s approach to the public was the right one, and I hope that, in its future communications with the public, the Department of Health and Social Care might learn that lesson about having the patient at the heart. That is what this is about, because it is so complicated and difficult for the public...

Integrated Care — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (6 Sep 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: Like me, the hon. Lady was in Parliament when we went through the 2012 reforms. We had to have a period of pause because of the complexity of the legislation. Pre-legislative scrutiny is absolutely essential and I wholeheartedly support what she has said as the Chair of the Committee.

Business of the House (6 Sep 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: I am sure, Mr Speaker, that you will have seen the 2010 film “The King’s Speech”, portraying George VI. It contained 11 uses of the F-word and was granted a classification of 12A. I recently saw the highly rated documentary “A Northern Soul” by Hull film-maker Sean McAllister. Its main character uses the F-word 14 times and it is heard 19 times in total in the...

Health and Social Care: HPV Vaccine (24 Jul 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: I congratulate the Minister on that announcement. The vaccine also plays its part in protecting against sexually transmitted disease. Will he saying something about the fact that syphilis is now at its highest rate since the second world war and that there are strains of gonorrhoea resistant to treatment? What are the Government going to do about this?

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Home Ownership (23 Jul 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: What recent assessment he has made of (a) trends in the level of home ownership since 2010 and (b) the opportunities available for council and social housing tenants who wish to buy their homes.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Home Ownership (23 Jul 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: Since 2010, we have seen home ownership levels fall to a 30-year low, while homelessness has doubled. If we want to end this dual failure to meet housing need and aspiration, and put choice in the hands of the many, not the few, should we not invest in building and renovating enough council and affordable homes to rent and buy, without taking away the rights that council tenants’ have...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (23 Jul 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: The Secretary of State has just talked about councils’ role in prevention. Given that they are now responsible for public health and the Local Government Association claims that public health cuts of £600 million mean that they are unable to deal with unforeseen outbreaks of sexually transmitted diseases, is he concerned that we have the highest rates of syphilis since the end of...

Relationships and Sex Education (19 Jul 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker. I was expecting to be called last because of my outburst.

Relationships and Sex Education (19 Jul 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker. My outburst was because I was so flabbergasted that the Government have now adopted the position that this House was debating in 2010 when the last Labour Government were in power. I remember very well the Schools Minister, who is sitting on the Front Bench today, arguing absolutely against the proposals that the Secretary of State is now making. However,...

Relationships and Sex Education (19 Jul 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: That was Labour’s policy in 2010.

Esa Underpayments: Business of the House (19 Jul 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: I have been battling for a number of years with Persimmon, the house building company, which has built some homes in my constituency whose gardens have been slipping into the drain. I have been battling for years, and it was only when I said to Persimmon that I was going to raise the matter on the Floor of the House that I was able to get a meeting with Simon Usher, one of its managers in...

Esa Underpayments: Business of the House (19 Jul 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. I am grateful that you are allowing me to raise this point of order at this time, with the Leader of the House still on the Treasury Bench. It has come to light that PICT, which provides parliamentary ICT support to Members, has seemingly decided, without any prior consultation, to close down Members’ second email accounts, claiming it is due...

Esa Underpayments (19 Jul 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: The Minister has again been brought to the Chamber by an urgent question, not to make a statement herself. I want to mention that the 100th anniversary is coming up of when George Lansbury and the Poplar councillors went to prison because they refused to cut benefits for the poor and the disabled. Does the Minister feel ashamed that she has had to come here today to explain the culture of...

Exiting the European Union: Rights, Standards and Protections (19 Jul 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: The European arrest warrant is a protection, so will the Minister update us on whether, when we leave the EU, the negotiated position that his Government will arrive at with the EU will give us the same protections that we currently have to arrest and detain criminals, which my constituents are really concerned about?

Govia Thameslink Franchise (18 Jul 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: Following on from the final question by my hon. Friend the shadow Secretary of State, and in the light of speculation in the Railway Gazette, will the Minister give an undertaking that he will be coming before the House in the next few days, leading up to when we finish on 24 July, to announce that the electrification of the TransPennine route has been cancelled?
