Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Hurricane Relief (Caribbean) (18 Oct 2017)

Jo Swinson: The Secretary of State is right that the scenes of devastation that we have witnessed are heartbreaking. As well as helping victims, we must try to prevent future damage, so will she reverse the recent trend in reducing DFID climate change funding, especially for the adaptation work that is so crucial to help vulnerable communities become resilient to hurricanes and other climate-related...

The Rohingya and the Myanmar Government (17 Oct 2017)

Jo Swinson: The right hon. Lady mentioned refugee camps in different parts of the world. What is happening to the Rohingya is horrendous, given the testimony that we have heard today. In common with many past disasters, is it not absolutely vital that there is access for agencies so that they can go in and gather evidence and testimony, so that the case can be made and the people responsible for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Russia (17 Oct 2017)

Jo Swinson: Thank you very much, Mr Speaker. Amid reports that Russia is hacking into the smartphones of NATO troops and that—[Interruption.]

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Russia (17 Oct 2017)

Jo Swinson: Amid reports that Russia is hacking into the smartphones of NATO troops and the ongoing revelations about the Russian online involvement in the US election, what is the Foreign Secretary’s assessment of the cyber threat posed to this country by Russia and what are his Government doing about it?

Iran (16 Oct 2017)

Jo Swinson: The Minister has described how difficult and complex it was to negotiate this deal, which was such a significant step forward, and is, of course, now at risk. May I urge him to be a little bolder and state clearly on the record whether he thinks this intervention from the US President will make it easier or more difficult to reach successful multilateral diplomatic agreements in future?

Royal Mail Delivery Office Closures — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (11 Oct 2017)

Jo Swinson: Will the Minister give way?

Royal Mail Delivery Office Closures — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (11 Oct 2017)

Jo Swinson: I appreciate the Minister’s giving way, and she is of course right that, as the hon. Member for Falkirk (John Mc Nally) mentioned, there were a significant number of post office closures under the Labour Government. That was halted, but that is exactly why it is a good network. I urge the Minister to ask Royal Mail not to put barriers in the way of people using the network, such as the...

Royal Mail Delivery Office Closures — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (11 Oct 2017)

Jo Swinson: It is a delight to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gapes, and I congratulate the hon. Member for Dulwich and West Norwood (Helen Hayes) on securing this debate. The attendance both before and after the Divisions, which were an interruption of our discussion this afternoon, really shows that there is significant interest in this issue right across the House. Of course, mail services are...

Government Policy on the Proceedings of the House (10 Oct 2017)

Jo Swinson: I am listening to the Leader of the House with great interest, just as I did to what the right hon. Member for Forest of Dean (Mr Harper) said. He seemed to suggest that the Government chose not to vote on those motions—certainly the first one—because the Government were in agreement and the debate was a political one about what “fair” meant, but she seems to be...

Leaving the EU: Consumer Protection — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Oct 2017)

Jo Swinson: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Leaving the EU: Consumer Protection — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Oct 2017)

Jo Swinson: I welcomed the hon. Gentleman’s praise for the Consumer Rights Act, which he rightly says was introduced during the 2010-15 Parliament. As the Liberal Democrat Minister who introduced that measure, in a Department led by a Liberal Democrat Secretary of State, I gently say to him that it was not just a Conservative achievement.

Leaving the EU: Consumer Protection — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Oct 2017)

Jo Swinson: The hon. Lady is making an incredibly powerful speech that I think everyone in the Chamber is glad to be able to hear. She made the point that high product safety standards and consumer protection are good for customers, and obviously they are. Does she agree that they are also good for British businesses? When our businesses go to those high standards, that makes them competitive globally...

Race Disparity Audit (10 Oct 2017)

Jo Swinson: Let us give credit where it is due, because this data set is important. I welcome the Government’s commitment to the transparency that will help to shine a light on the structural racism that still exists in UK society. May I offer the First Secretary of State some advice based on painful experience? The Conservative side of the coalition Government spent five years insisting that we...
