Home Department: Police Officer Numbers: Sussex (28 Oct 2019)

Stephen Hammond: I am delighted to hear about the increase in the numbers of police in Sussex, but will the Home Secretary also reassure me that the London Borough of Merton will see an increase in its officers? Will she support my campaign to keep the police station in Wimbledon open, so that those police officers have somewhere to operate out of?

Speaker’s Statement: The National Health Service (23 Oct 2019)

Stephen Hammond: It is an honour, a pleasure and a surprise to be called in this debate, Madam Deputy Speaker. I confess that I had forgotten I put in for it, but I am none the less delighted to speak and to follow the hon. Member for Bishop Auckland (Helen Goodman). She knows how much I oppose no deal, but I say gently to her that I spent more hours of my life than I care to remember between December last...

Cabinet Office: Leaving the EU: UK Readiness (23 Oct 2019)

Stephen Hammond: What support the Government plan to provide for small businesses in the event that the UK leaves the EU without a deal.

Cabinet Office: Leaving the EU: UK Readiness (23 Oct 2019)

Stephen Hammond: I recently visited a number of small companies in my constituency who welcome Government advice, but say that much of it is vague and non-specific. Will my right hon. Friend ask his civil servants to ensure advice is more specific?

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (22 Oct 2019)

Stephen Hammond: I worked closely with my right hon. Friend when he was Mayor of London, and I know how much he valued the contribution of EU citizens. I have the great good fortune to represent a constituency that contains one of the highest proportions of EU citizens. May I ask my right hon. Friend to look again at the arbitrary deadline for applications for settled status?

Preparations for Leaving the EU (8 Oct 2019)

Stephen Hammond: I agree with my right hon. Friend. As someone who voted for a deal three times, I am pleased to hear that that is still the Government’s policy. Many people will already have plans for travel beyond 31 October. Notwithstanding point 4 on page 41 of the document, and the answers that he gave my right hon. Friends the Members for Basingstoke (Mrs Miller) and for North Thanet (Sir Roger...

Brexit Negotiations (3 Oct 2019)

Stephen Hammond: Like my right hon. Friends the Members for Tunbridge Wells (Greg Clark) and for North East Bedfordshire (Alistair Burt), I warmly welcome the fact that the proposals have been set down, and the constructive tone in which the Prime Minister has undertaken the proceedings today. I am keen to understand some of the points of detail. I understand that there will be a change also to the political...

Petition - Freewheelers' Use of Bus Lanes: South Western Railway (1 Oct 2019)

Stephen Hammond: Those are appalling statistics, but the Minister is absolutely right about a customer-focused railway. He must bang the desk of Network Rail, because a number of those failures have been signal failures, such as those which we experienced on the line yet again yesterday. When he bashes South Western Railway, will he please also make sure that Network Rail is brought into that attribution, and...

Petition - Freewheelers' Use of Bus Lanes: South Western Railway (1 Oct 2019)

Stephen Hammond: I am pleased that the Minister is touching on this point, because I wanted to raise it. Accessibility, both for people who are disabled and for young mothers and others, is a real issue. Major stations up and down the SWR network have failed to have that step-free access implemented. I am thinking of places such as Raynes Park, in particular; currently, disabled people have to catch a taxi...

Petition - Freewheelers' Use of Bus Lanes: South Western Railway (1 Oct 2019)

Stephen Hammond: My right hon. Friend is making a powerful case on behalf of her constituents. When the service gets further up the line, shortened carriages cause even more problems, for constituents in Wimbledon and elsewhere. SWR promised to address this in its franchise bid, and we should now be reviewing that and asking whether it will be held to account.

Health Infrastructure Plan (30 Sep 2019)

Stephen Hammond: I welcome my hon. Friend to his role and wish him every success. I also welcome this Government’s continuing investment in the NHS, particularly that in the Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust. Does he agree that it will provide high-quality A&E services for my residents, maintain key services at the St Helier site and confound those naysayers who said that this Government...

Education: School Admissions Code: Summer-born and Premature Children (9 Sep 2019)

Stephen Hammond: What progress his Department has made on further amending the School Admissions Code to ensure that summer-born and premature children can be admitted to reception at the age of five at the request of parents.

Education: School Admissions Code: Summer-born and Premature Children (9 Sep 2019)

Stephen Hammond: I thank my right hon. Friend for his answer. He will know that it is four years since we had an Adjournment debate on this and two years since I last asked him a question on this. I am very pleased to hear his answer, but can he commit to laying out the timetable as to when the Government might be able to publish that and potentially have a meeting with me to discuss the unintended consequences?

Education: Topical Questions (9 Sep 2019)

Stephen Hammond: I welcome the extra funding. Can my right hon. Friend confirm that each primary and secondary school in Wimbledon will benefit, and will he commit to writing to me on the revised settlement for each and every secondary and primary school in Wimbledon?

Exiting the European Union: No Deal (5 Sep 2019)

Stephen Hammond: What recent assessment he has made of the likelihood of the UK leaving the EU without a deal.

Exiting the European Union: No Deal (5 Sep 2019)

Stephen Hammond: I thank my right hon. Friend for that answer. I believe the best way to avoid no deal is to secure a deal. He will know that I voted three times for the withdrawal agreement, and I will support this Government as they seek to secure a deal. Given that the comments reported overnight from Monsieur Barnier appear to be in conflict with the aspirations of our Prime Minister, will the Secretary...

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (5 Sep 2019)

Stephen Hammond: Will my right hon. Friend confirm whether, since 25 July, the Department has had any discussions with the financial sector about the implications of any revised policy, which would be a policy of regulatory divergence?

G7 Summit (3 Sep 2019)

Stephen Hammond: I voted for the withdrawal agreement three times, so I am pleased to hear that the Prime Minister expects to make progress throughout September and October. He will know that it was the policy of the previous Prime Minister to keep this House regularly updated. For those of us who are considering how to vote tonight, were he to reconsider his decision and make statements throughout the whole...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Hong Kong (3 Sep 2019)

Stephen Hammond: What recent assessment he has made of the political situation in Hong Kong.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Hong Kong (3 Sep 2019)

Stephen Hammond: I welcome my right hon. Friend to his position. I was pleased to hear his comments about the UK Government’s steadfast support for the joint declaration and the one country, two systems principle. Will he make sure that we continue to reiterate that very strongly, because that is a mechanism for driving peace in the solution?
