Jenny Chapman: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, on how many occasions the police response has been delayed as a result of new build housing developments not being included in GPS navigation systems in each of the last three years.
Jenny Chapman: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what the average waiting time is for a young person to be referred for NHS counselling.
Jenny Chapman: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, on how many occasions ambulances have been delayed as a result of new build housing developments not being included in GPS navigation systems in each of the last three years.
Jenny Chapman: While it is reassuring to hear the Minister say that no staff were physically hurt during the disturbance, these events are not supposed to happen and can be terrifying for the staff present. Will he make sure that staff receive the support they might need in the coming weeks to deal with what happened and that no staff member is forced to come back to work before they are ready?
Jenny Chapman: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, on how many occasions fire service response times have been extended as a result of new build housing developments not being included in GPS navigation systems in each of the last three years.
Jenny Chapman: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, how many community psychiatric nurses working in the NHS in England are non-UK EU nationals.
Jenny Chapman: The Government know that the UK relies on the EU for 25% of our food and that we grow just 15% of our own fruit and 55% of our own vegetables. The Minister is nostalgic for decades past, but—assuming that the Government do not intend UK households to return to consuming Spam and tinned peaches—can he assure us that he is not considering imposing tariffs on EU food imports?
Jenny Chapman: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what plans he has to introduce an energy price cap.
Jenny Chapman: The Minister said that these measures would be subject to votes in this House. Am I to read into that that he intends them to be subject to the affirmative procedure?
Jenny Chapman: It is my first opportunity to welcome you to your new seat in the Chamber, Madam Deputy Speaker; it is great to see you there. We have had a useful and informative debate this afternoon, although it has been slightly shorter than we anticipated because of other important debates. There have been some helpful contributions from across the House, including the maiden speech of the hon. Member...
Jenny Chapman: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. The House is aware that the repeal Bill is to be published tomorrow morning. Disconcertingly, the Labour party has received reports that the press is to be briefed on its contents this evening. Mr Speaker, have you received any notice from the Government that a Minister intends to come to this House at the earliest opportunity to make a statement as to the...
Jenny Chapman: What steps his Department is taking to improve service life satisfaction rates in the Armed Forces.
Jenny Chapman: Currently, forces families are given special assistance by local authorities when they leave the Army. Is the Minister aware that, upon divorce or separation, an Army spouse is instantly no longer classed as part of an Army family and receives no such support? Will he look into this and consider amending the advice given to local authorities?
Jenny Chapman: Visiting the north-east is always a good thing to do, and we are very happy to have the Minister, but he does need to listen while he is there. The Engineering Employers Federation has warned that walking away with no deal would condemn north-east manufacturing to “a painful and costly Brexit.” The EEF wants the Government, instead of posturing, to focus on obtaining full World...
Jenny Chapman: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what the value of forward purchase contracts with the Bank of England for the financial years (a) 2016-17 and (b) 2017-18 is; and what proportion of his Department's expenditure in each of those years those figures represent.
Jenny Chapman: Does the Prime Minister support the people of Darlington who oppose the downgrading of their A&E and maternity services? They want an answer they can trust, Prime Minister. Is it yes or no?
Jenny Chapman: The Minister can highlight what he likes, but long-term youth unemployment in Darlington and the Tees valley is completely stagnant: the situation has not improved at all. What is he going to do to make sure that in six months’ time the picture has improved?
Jenny Chapman: It is reassuring to hear the Minister’s words on this issue. He will know the level of concern across this House and out there in the country. If he has not read it, I recommend to him the recent House of Lords report, page 63 in particular, which states that we cannot assume that this matter will become part of the article 50 negotiations. If that does not happen, he must act quickly...
Jenny Chapman: This dispute is, on the surface, about pay, and the Minister has said an awful lot about that, but he must realise that it is also about unhappiness that has been developing in the Prison Service for many years now, principally about safety at work. The levels of assaults on prison officers, suicide and self-harm are unprecedented. Fixing that is how the Government are going to resolve this...
Jenny Chapman: The Minister opened his remarks by saying that the JMC was not on a statutory footing. That is precisely the point of our new clause. He has given us warm words and platitudes about his respect for the devolved Administrations, but I am afraid they are not enough, and we will press the new clause to a Division.
