Armed Forces Day (26 Jun 2019)

Jenny Chapman: I represent Darlington, which is the nearest major town to Catterick garrison. I see what the Minister is talking about day in and day out. Does he think that we do enough to celebrate, and to highlight to people who might be considering a career in the armed forces, the support that is available to people leaving, and the breadth of successful careers that veterans enter into, from teaching...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (11 Jun 2019)

Jenny Chapman: Yesterday, I spoke to the chief executive of Arcadia Group about the Top Shop, Top Man and Dorothy Perkins stores in Darlington. Tomorrow, there is a CVA—company voluntary arrangement —meeting where we could see the loss of 18,000 jobs nationwide. I know that the Government cannot intervene in the process, but what are they going to do to protect communities who could be affected by this...

Leaving the EU: Extension Period Negotiations — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (22 May 2019)

Jenny Chapman: It is a pleasure to take part in the debate, although I feel that it has been something of an internal Conservative party discussion. To sum up for the Minister, I do not think his colleagues are very happy. It is a pleasure, too, to follow the hon. Member for Glenrothes (Peter Grant). I have a great deal of time for many things he said. Perhaps with the exception of the Minister, most hon....

Leaving the EU: Extension Period Negotiations — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (22 May 2019)

Jenny Chapman: In fact, my constituents in Darlington did not vote by more than 60% to leave the European Union.

Leaving the EU: Extension Period Negotiations — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (22 May 2019)

Jenny Chapman: Fifty-six. My constituency boundary is different from the borough boundary, as the hon. Gentleman probably knows. Nobody really knows what percentage of my constituents voted to leave, but that is not really the point. The fact is that, like all hon. Members present, a large number of my constituents wished to leave the European Union, which is why I voted to trigger article 50. I campaigned...

Leaving the EU: Extension Period Negotiations — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (22 May 2019)

Jenny Chapman: We are saying that following the referendum and the general election, we need to have a close, collaborative relationship with the European Union. We want the benefits—as were promised by the then Secretary of State—of a customs union and the single market. I do not know—perhaps the Minister can tell us—how we achieve such benefits, particularly of a customs union, without being in a...

Investigation of Veterans (16 May 2019)

Jenny Chapman: I represent Darlington, which is the nearest large town to Catterick garrison, so there are many hundreds of veterans living in my constituency. None of them has ever asked or expected to be treated differently or as if they were above the law in any situation, but there is deep concern about this issue. There is also deep concern in the wider community that individual soldiers may be held...

Exiting the European Union: Leaving the EU: NHS (16 May 2019)

Jenny Chapman: I was going to say that both my parents were nurses, as was the shadow Secretary of State’s mum, but I obviously do not need to. I remember being accused of negativity, as the Secretary of State has done repeatedly today, when we warned of the dangers of privatising the probation service, and look how that worked out. It is our job to challenge the Government. They might not like it, but...

Exiting the European Union: Leaving the EU: NHS (16 May 2019)

Jenny Chapman: The Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs seems to think it is.

Exiting the European Union: Leaving the EU: NHS (16 May 2019)

Jenny Chapman: I suggest that the hon. Gentleman takes that up with the right hon. Member for Surrey Heath (Michael Gove). How can we trust this Government to protect our public health or our NHS in any trade deal with the United States when they cannot agree within Cabinet? The Environment Secretary says that chlorinated chicken will be banned, but the Secretary of State for International Trade says it...

Prisons and Probation (14 May 2019)

Jenny Chapman: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for breaking his extremely good speech. The people trying to deliver these services are, whoever they work for, incredibly dedicated and want to do an extremely good job, which many of them are capable of doing, but the problem is the fragmentation of the service, about which I warned the former Secretary of State, as did my right hon. Friend the Member for...

Bird Nesting Sites: Protection — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (13 May 2019)

Jenny Chapman: I cannot remember whether it is the RSPB or Natural England that says the nets need to be checked three times a day by people who know what they are doing. I do not believe that that is happening. Was the right hon. Lady able to glean any more information about that when she did her research?

Bird Nesting Sites: Protection — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (13 May 2019)

Jenny Chapman: My hon. Friend mentions an important aspect of this issue. Netting is being used more and more, almost as a safeguard—just in case—but it ought not to be. It should really be installed by an ecologist and checked several times a day to ensure that nothing is trapped inside. Developers are far too relaxed in their use of the procedure. It seems to me that there is very little regulation,...

Bird Nesting Sites: Protection — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (13 May 2019)

Jenny Chapman: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for giving way again. I should probably declare that I am a member of the RSPB. Part of the issue is that the use of netting is voluntary, and we use it because we wish to develop. It should be used only when absolutely necessary—when there is no other option and it is in the best interests of wildlife—but almost every time it is used, that is not the case.

Northern Ireland: Murder of Lyra Mckee (23 Apr 2019)

Jenny Chapman: Lyra spoke about the dividends of peace not being shared. She was talking, I believe, about communities such as the one in which she was standing when she was so cruelly murdered. Does the Secretary of State accept—I know that she does not want to get into the restoration of the Assembly tonight—that if we are not going to see a restoration of devolution, she will have to find some other...

Exiting the European Union: No Deal: Prevention (4 Apr 2019)

Jenny Chapman: Leaving without a deal would affect everybody, not least our dentists. I hope you will find it in order, Mr Speaker, for me to raise the issue of dentistry in a no-deal situation at this point. A third of the 6,500 European qualified dental registrants intend to leave UK dentistry. The British Dental Association chair, Mick Armstrong, has said: “Government has failed to even acknowledge...

Leaving the European Union — [James Gray in the Chair] (1 Apr 2019)

Jenny Chapman: I remind the Minister that we are being observed here by members of the public in the Gallery, and also by many people watching at home, because they have a certain level of engagement with this debate, perhaps more than others. What they do not want to see is an attempt to undermine, one by one, Members who have made a case on behalf of the petitioners today. They would like the Minister to...

Leaving the European Union — [James Gray in the Chair] (1 Apr 2019)

Jenny Chapman: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr McCabe. I thank all the Members who have contributed and made such excellent speeches with great passion and insight. It is great to be in a debate in which MPs are so at one with their constituents over an issue—but I must correct myself: I called it a “debate”, but clearly we have not had a debate. Our sharing of perspectives has...

Leaving the European Union — [James Gray in the Chair] (1 Apr 2019)

Jenny Chapman: Yes. We are treating tonight as the opportunity to vote for something—a way to find whether there is a majority in the House of Commons for a particular deal as a way forward. We do not necessarily disagree with the proposition made by the hon. and learned Member for Edinburgh South West (Joanna Cherry), but we will abstain on it this evening, while acknowledging that it is something that...
