Universal Credit and Welfare Changes (21 Jun 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: Hull is one of the cities that is to see the roll-out of universal credit later this year. We already have high levels of poverty, homelessness, and people using food banks. Following the publication of the report, what other measures does the Secretary of State plan to introduce to make sure that, when universal credit is rolled out in Hull, it is more successful than it has been so far?

Business of the House (21 Jun 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: Antisocial behaviour is the top issue in my constituency, and it is one I have raised with the Leader of the House on a number of occasions. Today BBC Radio Humberside is running a story about the aggressive begging, shoplifting, drug taking and drunkenness on Newland Avenue in my constituency. With a background of cuts to addiction services, cuts to police budgets, cuts to council budgets...

Defence Fire and Rescue Project: Capita (21 Jun 2018)

Gosport Independent Panel: Publication of Report (20 Jun 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: I, too, join in the comments that have made about the remarkable work of Bishop James Jones—not only in this important report, but on Hillsborough and on mediating with the Government last summer about moving the contaminated blood inquiry away from the Department of Health. I seek an assurance from the Secretary of State about the approach that Bishop Jones has put forward, which is...

Confidence in the Secretary of State for Transport (19 Jun 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: One thing that the Secretary of State has managed to do is to unite those on both sides of the Pennines—which is actually quite remarkable—in our view that it is time for him to go. Lancashire and Yorkshire do not normally get on that well, but we are united in this regard. Ministers will know that in recent weeks the great newspapers of the north have been united on their front...

Cannabis-Based Medicines (19 Jun 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: The Home Secretary says that he wants a system that works. I am bit concerned about the role of the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs in the light of what has happened in recent days. Is it still fit for purpose?

Health and Social Care: Childhood Obesity (19 Jun 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: The Minister says that progress is not good enough, so why does he not introduce a levy on high-sugar food as well as the one on sugary drinks? Manufacturers would then reformulate the food that they produce.

NHS Long-Term Plan (18 Jun 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: I listened to what the Secretary of State said earlier about how there can be no transformation of the NHS without a proper emphasis on public health. How will the planned £800 million of cuts to public health help with that transformation, particularly when it comes to tackling the child obesity crisis, the growing sexual health services crisis and the cuts to addiction services, which...

Medicinal Cannabis: Upskirting (18 Jun 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: Part of the reason why the Bill was blocked last Friday was that the House had not had an opportunity to debate it fully. Following her welcome announcement, will the Minister tell us how many hours of debate she thinks will be required for Members to arrive at the conclusion that the taking of photographs underneath, mainly, women’s clothes by perverts is a bad thing?

Medicinal Cannabis (18 Jun 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: The Minister has referred to the role played by the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs, and he announced an expert body to look at the matter. Will he tell us what the advisory council is currently saying to the Government about this issue?

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (18 Jun 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: It is really good to see the northern powerhouse Minister on the Treasury Bench because in recent weeks there was a view that he had gone out of service when we were facing the rail chaos around the new timetabling, so could he tell us exactly what he has been doing to improve connectivity between the east and west of the north?

Business of the House (14 Jun 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: The Leader of the House will know that we had a fantastic year in Hull as the UK city of culture last year. However, despite a strong police presence in recent weeks, the scourge of individuals who are addicted to the synthetic drug, spice, and walking round the city centre in a zombie-like state is causing real problems for citizens who want to go about their daily lives shopping there....

Rolls-Royce Redundancies (14 Jun 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: The Secretary of State has talked about the aerospace industry in this country doing well and growing, but he will be aware that BAE Systems is making people redundant at Brough.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (12 Jun 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: Of course, I say to the Secretary of State that the Labour party was founded by the trade unions. My question is about retail. In Hull, retail employs 12,000 people. Hull’s House of Fraser store is going to close, with the loss of 207 jobs. Hull has three Poundworld stores that are under threat and there are also concerns about Hull’s Marks and Spencer store, which may be one of...
