Business of the House (23 Mar 2017)

Greg Mulholland: It was very striking this morning coming into this place to see so many police officers on duty, not only protecting us but mourning their colleague, the hero PC Keith Palmer. His death in active service, protecting us here, is a reminder that there are families of murdered police officers and of lost loved ones from our armed forces who have still not received proper compensation. Can we...

Money Laundering: British Banks (21 Mar 2017)

Greg Mulholland: It is clear that the current measures, though welcome, are simply not sufficient to tackle this sort of money laundering. Considering that dirty money is channelled through our British banks, how much worse would it be if the Chancellor achieved his vision of this country becoming a corporate tax haven—another Panama—post-Brexit?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Heart Disease and Paediatric Services (21 Mar 2017)

Greg Mulholland: The Leeds heart unit is performing very well, and is free from the threat that it was facing, unfairly, a few years ago. Will lessons be learned, however, from the disastrous Safe and Sustainable review process, which pitted hospital against hospital and clinician against clinician? Can we find a much better way—I hope the Minister will tell us that this is happening now—to...

Advisory Committee on Business Appointments/Ministerial Code (20 Mar 2017)

Greg Mulholland: In the context of potential overspending in key marginal seats and concerns about the appointments of MPs with safe seats, does this situation not show the stark difference between parties’ and candidates’ approaches to marginal and safe seats? There is a real problem of representation and an issue with the first-past-the-post system.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (20 Mar 2017)

Greg Mulholland: It is deeply shocking that in the 21st century, some girls, including in Leeds, are not going to school because they cannot afford sanitary products. Will the Secretary of State eliminate the problem by introducing free sanitary products for all girls receiving free school meals?

Class 4 National Insurance Contributions (15 Mar 2017)

Greg Mulholland: This Budget was disappointing and unambitious, and is now mired in this chaos. Is it not now time to properly consider having an NHS tax specific to funding our NHS, which did not receive enough funding? As the Chancellor knows, this has the support of the majority of the British public.

Personal Independence Payments (15 Mar 2017)

Greg Mulholland: My hon. Friend the Member for Westmorland and Lonsdale (Tim Farron) has tabled an early-day motion signed by 143 Members, including the Leader of the Opposition. Why are the Government so keen on ignoring this place and Parliament and on bulldozing this unpopular change through? Will the Secretary of State agree to a proper debate in this House on this unpopular measure?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (14 Mar 2017)

Greg Mulholland: The Pubs Code Adjudicator Paul Newby failed to declare a much more fundamental direct conflict of interest than Charlotte Hogg, yet Ministers are ignoring it. Tomorrow, tenants will protest outside his office. How long will Ministers keep failing to do their duty and not face up to this situation?

Oral Answers to Questions — Electoral Commission Committee: Business of the House (2 Mar 2017)

Greg Mulholland: I wish to add my tributes, on my behalf and that of my party, to the late and much missed Father of the House, Sir Gerald Kaufman. He was an extraordinary servant of Manchester, which he represented for such a remarkable number of years, but, as the hon. Member for Huddersfield (Mr Sheerman) said, he was in fact originally a Leeds boy. He was born in Leeds, went to school in Leeds, and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (9 Feb 2017)

Greg Mulholland: Every gay player, coach and volunteer in every sport should be made welcome. Will the Minister join me in praising the leadership shown by rugby league in tackling homophobia in sport, on this the day that the Super League season kicks off?

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Sports: Homophobia (9 Feb 2017)

Greg Mulholland: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, what discussions her Department has had with sports governing bodies on tackling homophobia in sport.

Housing White Paper (7 Feb 2017)

Greg Mulholland: Thank you, Mr Speaker. For the Secretary of State to call anyone lazy when these few pages are the best he can do is pretty pathetic. It is also pathetic that he has done nothing in his term to ensure that the right houses are being built in the right places. Will he speak to Bramhope & Carlton and Pool in Wharfedale parish councils about why they are facing yet more development of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Innovative Drugs and Medical Devices (7 Feb 2017)

Greg Mulholland: A simple but life-saving use of medical apparatus is tube feeding. Will the Minister join me in welcoming the fact that this is Feeding Tube Awareness Week, which is raising awareness of this important issue and giving support to all the thousands of families in which children or other family members are tube fed?

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Topical Questions (6 Feb 2017)

Greg Mulholland: Leeds is reviewing its support for transport to school for pupils with special educational needs and disabilities, and there is a risk that people over-16 may not get such funding. Will the Government commit to ensuring that all children in such a situation in the country get the funding they need for transport to school?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (31 Jan 2017)

Greg Mulholland: Last week, the Under-Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, the hon. Member for Stourbridge (Margot James), said that there had clearly been instances of the pubs code being flouted and that Members should bring such things to her attention. I have a case in her own constituency to bring to her attention, which also shows that the adjudicator is not doing his job....

Statutory Pubs Code and Pubs Code Adjudicator (26 Jan 2017)

Greg Mulholland: I thank all the hon. and right hon. Members who have taken part in this important debate. Excellent contributions have come from both sides of the House. Notably, not a single Backbencher stood up in support of Mr Paul Newby or claimed that the pubs code was working. I like the Minister, who did great work with the former Business, Innovation and Skills Committee. I pay tribute to all...
