European Council (22 Feb 2016)

Stephen Hammond: This great exercise in democracy is not about what we say in this House, but about what our constituents decide, and my constituents, like many others, will be interested in the things that affect them: the economic protection and the jobs that the new reformed EU and the single trade zone can bring. They do not want the euro, they do not want the Euro superstate and they do not want...

Police Grant Report (England and Wales) (10 Feb 2016)

Stephen Hammond: It is a great pleasure to speak in this debate and a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Wirral West (Margaret Greenwood). I will use the short time available to address some of the issues that affect London in particular, but let me start by making it very clear that I have not heard any Government Member maligning anybody in the police force—far from it. I put on record my tribute...

Police Grant Report (England and Wales) (10 Feb 2016)

Stephen Hammond: I agree with the shadow Minister that neighbourhood policing is key. Does he agree with the borough commander whom I met again last Friday, who made the point that although the numbers in some of the neighbourhood units are down, they are now dedicated to that unit and that neighbourhood, so although numbers are lower, they are more effective?

Police Grant Report (England and Wales) (10 Feb 2016)

Stephen Hammond: I have been listening carefully to the Minister. I met my local borough commander last Friday, and although there are of course challenges, he told me that some of the reforms will actually make policing more effective. More importantly, he stressed to me that there are now as many police on the frontline in the Met as there have ever been.

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Brownfield Sites (8 Feb 2016)

Friend the Member for Richmond Park (Zac Goldsmith) to drive the London Land Commission to force local authorities to bring forward unused land will secure the homes that Londoners need and protect the environment and give London the quality of environment it deserves?

UK’s Relationship with the EU (2 Feb 2016)

Stephen Hammond: Does my right hon. Friend agree that it is the details that have been negotiated, and not the emotions, that should determine the analysis of what the Prime Minister has done? Will my right hon. Friend confirm that under paragraph 5 of the economic governance section, the institutions of the EU will be sovereign over the eurozone, which will be a powerful tool for the economic future of this...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Prisons’ Engagement with Employers (26 Jan 2016)

Stephen Hammond: My hon. Friend will know that access to the skills likely to be required in the working environment is key. I welcome what he said about the employers’ forum, but will he say what more the Government will do to get more employers to recognise the potential of providing those skills and of the opportunity to employ ex-offenders on release?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: School Starting Age (25 Jan 2016)

Stephen Hammond: I thank my hon. Friend for his hard work in ensuring that the Department is listening to the campaign. Is there any chance he could provide a timeline so that parents who are planning their children’s future can do so with some security?

Opposition Day — [16th Allotted Day] — Student Maintenance Grants: Cost of Public Transport (19 Jan 2016)

Stephen Hammond: In the Corbyn land of rhetoric, the hon. Lady seems to have forgotten that fares went up by 11% in the last year of the Labour Government alone. It is this Government who have frozen regulated fares for three years. Will she acknowledge that fact and make sure that she puts the truth on the record?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Daesh (18 Jan 2016)

Housing and Planning Bill — [2nd Allocated Day]: Clause 67 — Payments to Secretary of State (12 Jan 2016)

Stephen Hammond: I am pleased to have the opportunity to speak in the debate, given that I was a member of the Public Bill Committee. I note your strictures about keeping speeches short, Madam Deputy Speaker. Had I listened to the debate without any knowledge, I might have been persuaded by Opposition amendment 142, which deals with security of tenure. However, all is not as it is being portrayed—in...

Housing and Planning Bill — [2nd Allocated Day]: Clause 67 — Payments to Secretary of State (12 Jan 2016)

Stephen Hammond: I hope that the Minister will clarify that point, but the key thing is the possibility of new longer tenancies, especially for elderly people, which deals with the point that the hon. Gentleman raised earlier. I support amendment 112. Many Members have spoken about hotspots and affordability, so I will not rehearse those arguments, but suffice it to say that my hon. Friend the Member for...

Housing and Planning Bill (Programme) (No. 2): New Clause 29 — Planning applications etc: setting of fees (5 Jan 2016)

Stephen Hammond: I was lucky enough to be chosen by the Whips to serve on the Bill Committee, and one great chink of light in the tunnel of that seemingly interminable yet fascinating debate was that one knew that we had Ministers who were listening to us on the Back Benches. I therefore say to the Chairman of the Select Committee and to the hon. Member for City of Durham (Dr Blackman-Woods) that it is quite...

Bill Presented — Marriage Registration Bill: Conception to Age 2: The First 1001 Days (17 Dec 2015)

Stephen Hammond: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Bill Presented — Marriage Registration Bill: Conception to Age 2: The First 1001 Days (17 Dec 2015)

Stephen Hammond: I will be extremely brief. The hon. Gentleman is absolutely right about ensuring that the nought-to-threes become great people in their own right. One of the things that can help is recognition of when in the school year they were born. Does he agree that the Summer Born campaign, which wants local education authorities to properly assess children born in July and August, and the anticipated...
