Disabled People and Economic Growth: Cancer Strategy (22 Feb 2018)

Jim Shannon: I congratulate the hon. Member for East Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow (Dr Cameron) on securing this debate, and I am grateful to hon. Members for their extremely touching, wonderful and very personal contributions. As everyone here can testify, cancer has touched everyone—no family will not be aware of it. In fact, it is said that by 2020 one in every two people will be...

Disabled People and Economic Growth (22 Feb 2018)

Jim Shannon: Friday a week ago, I had the chance to meet Capita officials in Northern Ireland. I suggest to the hon. Gentleman and other Members that if it is possible to have such a meeting, it might be helpful. We were able to get a hotline to the people who can make the changes and to ensure that the people doing the assessments are up to speed, as he said. Capita needs to change some of the things it...

Disabled People and Economic Growth (22 Feb 2018)

Jim Shannon: It is always a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Chippenham (Michelle Donelan), and I thank her for her contribution. I congratulate the hon. Member for East Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow (Dr Cameron)—I hope that I pronounced her constituency correctly. [Interruption.] Ah, almost right. I will have to practise it. She is very clearly a champion for those with disabilities,...

Foreign Affairs Committee (22 Feb 2018)

Jim Shannon: I congratulate the Chair of the Committee and its members for their comprehensive report. On page 5, paragraph 3, it states: “The evidence given to us was clear: future conflicts were probable, and Kurdish groups would likely be involved.” Political events in Kurdistan-controlled areas and Turkey’s interactions have clearly cast a spell over the whole area. Did the Committee...

Business of the House (22 Feb 2018)

Jim Shannon: According to Persecution Relief, an ecumenical focus group, attacks on Christians in India have doubled in the past year to 736. Worryingly, it has also recorded a growing trend of attackers filing police complaints that accuse Christians of crimes such as sedition or even inviting attacks by offending local people and their religious sentiments. Will the Leader of the House agree to a...

Business of the House (22 Feb 2018)

Jim Shannon: It’s my debate!

International Trade: Topical Questions (22 Feb 2018)

Jim Shannon: Bearing in mind the upcoming Israel Apartheid Week in universities, of which a boycott of Israel and its products is a big component, will the Minister outline how he intends to enhance trade with Israel for our mutual benefit and offset that destructive campaign by the anti-Israel movement?

Delegated Legislation: UK Research Centre for Ceramics (21 Feb 2018)

Jim Shannon: I asked the hon. Gentleman beforehand whether he would agree to my intervention. Does he agree that there is a need to keep alive the skills and the lessons he referred to, which have been handed down through generations, so as to ensure that those with an interest and desire to learn this beautiful, wonderful ability can access the tools and know-how to do so? Does he further agree that...

Carillion: TUPE — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (21 Feb 2018)

Jim Shannon: It is a pleasure to speak in this debate; it is one that I have a particular interest in because of my own constituency and the workers there and across Northern Ireland. First, I congratulate the hon. Member for Wolverhampton South West (Eleanor Smith) on bringing the debate forward, presenting the case, and giving us an opportunity to participate. I thank her for that. It is nice to see...

Medicines and Medical Devices Safety Review (21 Feb 2018)

Jim Shannon: I thank the Secretary of State for his statement. As he indicated, our products are world leading, and China and the UK have come to an understanding on medical device regulation, which is great news. However, does the Secretary of State have any information about further such understandings to ensure that we can export our medical innovations throughout the world safely and with as little...

Arts Council England Funding: Coalfield Communities (20 Feb 2018)

Jim Shannon: rose—

Arts Council England Funding: Coalfield Communities (20 Feb 2018)

Jim Shannon: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on his contribution. He has just mentioned the very issue that I want to bring to his attention—the health institutions. Almost 50% of the nation’s healthcare institutions provide arts programming for patients, families and staff because of the health benefits of the arts to their patients. Surely if they can do it, we can see clearly the benefits...

Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [Lords] (20 Feb 2018)

Jim Shannon: The hon. Lady makes a valid point, although I have a different opinion on Brexit. Does she not agree that our ability to implement sanctions and address money laundering are essential components of our exit from Europe and that it is vital we have the same protections in place in the international market? We must look at the possibility of even enhancing them and making them even stronger.

Aid Sector: Safeguarding (20 Feb 2018)

Jim Shannon: I thank the Secretary of State for her statement, her determination and her strength of character. A whistleblower hotline has been set up; can the Secretary of State assure this House that those who use it will not be disadvantaged in employment as a result, and can she confirm whether there has been any usage of the hotline so far?

Northern Ireland (20 Feb 2018)

Jim Shannon: I thank the Secretary of State for her statement. Will she outline the timeline for the imposition of direct rule as it is legislated for in this place, to ensure that the people of Northern Ireland do not continue to be led by the nose by Sinn Féin, a party that does not have the interests of Northern Ireland at heart but seeks only the destruction of the state of Northern Ireland in an...

PACE Trial: People with ME — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (20 Feb 2018)

Jim Shannon: I congratulate the hon. Lady on securing this debate. Does she agree that there is still huge concern among ME patients that the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence says it will not abandon the promotion of physio-social therapies for ME, despite the widespread scientific criticism of the PACE trial methodology, and that we must ensure that that is addressed as a matter of urgency?

UK Basketball — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (20 Feb 2018)

Jim Shannon: I congratulate the hon. Member for Leeds North West (Alex Sobel) on bringing this debate to Westminster Hall for consideration. I am pleased to participate and to see whether we can persuade the Minister to do what everyone wants her to do: put more focus on basketball in this place and across the United Kingdom. In Northern Ireland, basketball is a small but passionate community, in which...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (20 Feb 2018)

Jim Shannon: What steps is the Department taking to provide training on freedom of religion or belief for its officials?

Community Bank Closures (8 Feb 2018)

Jim Shannon: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for South Thanet (Craig Mackinlay). I pay special credit to the hon. Members for Stoke-on-Trent North (Ruth Smeeth) and for Hazel Grove (Mr Wragg) for setting the scene so well and giving us an opportunity to make some contributions on this subject. Five banks have closed in my area in recent times—in fact, one has not closed yet but is going...

Work and Pensions Committee (8 Feb 2018)

Jim Shannon: To use your terminology, Mr Speaker, a pithy question: does the right hon. Gentleman feel that the process so far is IT-focused, not person-focused, and that that is the problem?
