Racism in Football (15 Oct 2019)

Jenny Chapman: I do not mind admitting that I am not a fan of football, but I am very proud of the fact that the world’s first black professional football player played for my home town in Darlington. What shocked me the most this morning on hearing about all this were the comments of the Bulgarian manager. It just seems to me that, as my hon. Friend the Member for Gateshead (Ian Mearns) rightly said, we...

Turkish Incursion into Northern Syria (15 Oct 2019)

Jenny Chapman: The whole House will agree with the words that the Foreign Secretary spoke about the actions of Turkey, but the whole world knows that they are happening only because of a decision made by the President of the United States. Has the Foreign Secretary or anyone in the British Government conveyed to the White House the view that his decision is not just the action of a very bad ally of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Knife Crime Prosecutions (8 Oct 2019)

Jenny Chapman: Yesterday, it was reported that knife crime in my relatively safe constituency has risen by 50%, which is extremely worrying, particularly for parents with teenage children in Darlington. Will the Justice Secretary look at the fact that since 2010 funding for youth offending teams has been halved?

Domestic Abuse Bill (2 Oct 2019)

Jenny Chapman: There have been many days recently when I have not been particularly proud to be a Member of this House, but today I am intensely proud, particularly following that wonderful speech, which I will find it difficult to follow, and the contributions from my hon. Friends the Members for Canterbury (Rosie Duffield) and for Walthamstow (Stella Creasy) and from the Mother of the House and the Chair...

Domestic Abuse Bill (2 Oct 2019)

Jenny Chapman: I do not know whether I agree with that or not, but this issue needs to be examined in great detail as the Bill progresses. This is the first opportunity that we have had to raise it in this place in this way. It needs further thought and consideration, and I am certain that it will get it.

Domestic Abuse Bill (2 Oct 2019)

Jenny Chapman: I completely agree, but relationship education is not enough, because I am afraid that the horse has already bolted. The University of Central Lancashire has done some research that will reinforce what I think everybody, particularly if they have teenage children, will know in their gut. Half of young people in relationships between teenagers are reporting emotional abuse and a fifth are...

Health Infrastructure Plan (30 Sep 2019)

Jenny Chapman: A couple of years ago, my constituents and I led a spirited and successful campaign to maintain A&E and maternity services at Darlington Memorial Hospital, but our attention now turns to the state of mental health services in Darlington. I know these problems are not unique to my constituency, but they are dire. There are young people and children in Darlington who have been waiting for 18...

No-Deal Brexit: Short Positions Against the Pound (30 Sep 2019)

Jenny Chapman: My constituents and the Minister’s constituents are working multiple jobs and long hours to keep themselves afloat. Does he understand at all just how distasteful it is for them to see people making millions betting against our country?

Hong Kong (26 Sep 2019)

Jenny Chapman: There is a long-standing affinity between many of my constituents and Hong Kong, primarily through family links or because they were posted there during service in the Army. There is particular concern about British National (Overseas) passport holders and the rights that are afforded to them. The Foreign Secretary has made it very clear that he does not wish to look at the issue at the...

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

Jenny Chapman: So, no answer!

Exiting the European Union: Discussions with EU Counterparts (5 Sep 2019)

Jenny Chapman: If all that is true, why did Dominic Cummings call the negotiations a “sham”?

Election of Select Committee Chairs (Notice of Election): Sheep Farming: No-deal EU Exit (3 Sep 2019)

Jenny Chapman: When I was first elected to this place in 2010, I never thought I would find myself standing up to challenge the Government about the decimation of the UK’s sheep industry. The ancient practice of shepherding is as old as the hills, but it is now facing an unprecedented challenge brought by the threat of a no-deal Brexit. The threat of no deal brings with it a man-made, Boris-built disaster...

Election of Select Committee Chairs (Notice of Election): Sheep Farming: No-deal EU Exit (3 Sep 2019)

Jenny Chapman: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. I represent an urban constituency, but even in urban Darlington there are agricultural workers whose jobs would be affected by the effect of a no-deal Brexit on the sheep industry.

Election of Select Committee Chairs (Notice of Election): Sheep Farming: No-deal EU Exit (3 Sep 2019)

Jenny Chapman: If it was that simple, we would not need to have this debate. This is not just about farm payments; it is about loss of markets. That is something that has not been properly understood, and the Government have not given a decent account of what they intend to do to address it.

Election of Select Committee Chairs (Notice of Election): Sheep Farming: No-deal EU Exit (3 Sep 2019)

Jenny Chapman: I agree with that. One of the specific problems faced by the farmers the hon. Gentleman describes is the fact that those flocks possess unique characteristics, and that once they are gone they may never be able to be bred back into our national flock.

Election of Select Committee Chairs (Notice of Election): Sheep Farming: No-deal EU Exit (3 Sep 2019)

Jenny Chapman: The hon. Lady makes an excellent point, and that is why even my constituents in urban Darlington care about what happens to our national flock and to the livelihoods of the tens of thousands of people who work so hard to keep our landscape the way that it is.

Election of Select Committee Chairs (Notice of Election): Sheep Farming: No-deal EU Exit (3 Sep 2019)

Jenny Chapman: I agree with the hon. Lady, and I will refer later in my speech to the report that she has mentioned.
