Prisons Policy/HMP Long Lartin (12 Oct 2017)

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?

Exiting the European Union: UK Food Safety Standards (7 Sep 2017)

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?

Bills Presented: Exiting the European Union: Sanctions (19 Jul 2017)

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?

Bills Presented: Exiting the European Union: Sanctions (19 Jul 2017)

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...

Humanitarian Situation in Mosul: Grenfell Tower Fire Inquiry (12 Jul 2017)

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...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Armed Forces: Life Satisfaction (10 Jul 2017)

Jenny Chapman: What steps his Department is taking to improve service life satisfaction rates in the Armed Forces.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Armed Forces: Life Satisfaction (10 Jul 2017)

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?

Exiting the European Union: English Regions (27 Apr 2017)

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...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (19 Apr 2017)

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?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Young People in Work (27 Mar 2017)

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?

Exiting the European Union: Common Travel Area: Republic of Ireland (9 Mar 2017)

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...

Prison Officers Association: Withdrawal from Voluntary Tasks (28 Feb 2017)

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...

Informal European Council: Joint Ministerial Committee (EU Negotiations) (6 Feb 2017)

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.

Informal European Council: Joint Ministerial Committee (EU Negotiations) (6 Feb 2017)

Jenny Chapman: That intervention would probably be better aimed at the Government Front Bench. The Government owe it to the people of Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland to be as accommodating as possible. For example, the financial support for deprived areas that has benefited communities for decades is now in question. Whether or not the Government deal with this issue as part of the passage of this...

Informal European Council: Joint Ministerial Committee (EU Negotiations) (6 Feb 2017)

Jenny Chapman: I have given way quite a lot and would like to make a little more progress. Many Members will want to contribute to the debate. New clauses 23 and 24, in the name of my hon. Friend the Member for Edinburgh South (Ian Murray), which would receive Labour Front-Bench support should he be able to test the will of the House on the matter, strengthen further the role of the Scottish Government in...

Informal European Council: Joint Ministerial Committee (EU Negotiations) (6 Feb 2017)

Jenny Chapman: What we are asking for, and what new clause 109 asks for, is certainty. I do not think that that is too much to ask. These amendments do not seek to obstruct the passage of this Bill—not in the least. They are born of a view that Brexit will be better for all the people of Britain if all communities up and down the country are properly involved. The Government should not hide away from...

Informal European Council: Joint Ministerial Committee (EU Negotiations) (6 Feb 2017)

Jenny Chapman: I am not going to take it personally that the hon. Gentleman was not listening carefully to the beginning of my speech, but if he looks at the record he will find that his worries are unfounded. He also might like to read the amendment that we have tabled and find that he has nothing at all to worry about.

Informal European Council: Joint Ministerial Committee (EU Negotiations) (6 Feb 2017)

Jenny Chapman: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention.

Informal European Council: Joint Ministerial Committee (EU Negotiations) (6 Feb 2017)

Jenny Chapman: I will give way, but only because I cannot find my place in my speech. This is the last intervention I will take.

Informal European Council: Joint Ministerial Committee (EU Negotiations) (6 Feb 2017)

Jenny Chapman: I am afraid that the right hon. Gentleman is going to have to put his misgivings about the Scottish National party to one side and focus on the people of Scotland, because it is their voices that we must ensure are heard in all this. This is going to require genuine commitment and goodwill. I can see that the right hon. Gentleman is going to find that difficult. I only hope that the Minister...
