Palestinian Children and Israeli Military Detention (7 Feb 2018)

Grahame Morris: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Trail Hunting (25 Jan 2018)

Grahame Morris: What assessment he has made of the extent to which trail hunting is used as a cover to conduct illegal fox hunting.

NHS Blood Cancer Care: Drug Consumption Rooms (17 Jan 2018)

Grahame Morris: Members of this House and members of the public have strong feelings on this issue, so it is important that we consider the evidence and the arguments. The hon. Gentleman says that he is against drug consumption rooms. I am not familiar with the situation in Moray, but I understand that shooting galleries exist. In my constituency, they are located in private dwellings, with drug addicts...

NHS Blood Cancer Care: Drug Consumption Rooms (17 Jan 2018)

Grahame Morris: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on securing this debate on a potentially controversial subject, but perhaps one where we need to look at the evidence. Does he agree that there are not only health benefits but other benefits in terms of crime prevention and reduction? The Home Office’s figures say that 45% of crimes are caused by drug users stealing in order to feed their habits....

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Occupied Palestinian Territories (17 Jan 2018)

Grahame Morris: What steps she is taking to improve access for humanitarian organisations in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Occupied Palestinian Territories (17 Jan 2018)

Grahame Morris: Palestinians in the occupied territories face significant barriers to access to healthcare. Some have even died as a result of delays at checkpoints. Will the Minister urge the UK Government to recommend to the working group of the United Nations’ universal periodic review of Israel’s human rights record that Israel lift restrictions on the movement of Palestinian patients and...

National Security Capability Review (15 Jan 2018)

Grahame Morris: The Secretary of State listed areas that would be protected, including aircraft carriers. Could the red line be extended to the amphibious assault ships—the Albion-class ships—and may I respectfully point out that a reduction in our amphibious capability would fundamentally diminish our ability to carry out humanitarian missions?

NHS Winter Crisis: Rail Franchising (10 Jan 2018)

Grahame Morris: I have had to take the Beeching axe to my speech, but I will make a couple of points in the few minutes available to me. I wanted to take up some of the points made by previous speakers, including the Secretary of State, with which I completely disagreed and which, frankly, were fake news. If we look at the evidence and compare train fares in the United Kingdom and European...

NHS Winter Crisis: Rail Franchising (10 Jan 2018)

Grahame Morris: What does the hon. Gentleman think the state-owned German rail company that owns a substantial chunk of our franchises does with the profit it makes here in our privatised system? It invests that profit in its own system, through subsidised fares there. That seems ludicrous to me and most of the travelling public.

NHS Winter Crisis: Rail Franchising (10 Jan 2018)

Grahame Morris: rose—

NHS Winter Crisis: Rail Franchising (10 Jan 2018)

Grahame Morris: It is an interesting concept that the travelling public have got a good deal that is paid for by the private train operating companies. I just checked what it would cost me if I left the House of Commons and went to Durham now. It would cost me £153 standard class—or £236 first class, but of course we are not allowed to do that. A similar journey at the same time of day from...

Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Jan 2018)

Grahame Morris: The Prime Minister said that she had reshuffled her Ministers so that they look more like the country they seek to represent. I am not sure about that, but in that spirit, will she acknowledge the massive problems in the private rented sector with absentee private landlords? Will she commit to come to visit Easington to gain her own appreciation of the scale of the problems that face many...

Grenfell Tower and Building Safety (18 Dec 2017)

Grahame Morris: Since 2013 and the coroners’ reports into the Lakanhal House and Shirley Towers’ fires, it has been well established that our building regulations need to be overhauled. May I push the Secretary of State to elaborate on the details on page 13 of his statement and give a date by which the necessary changes to the building regulations will be made?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Universal Credit: Sanctions (18 Dec 2017)

Grahame Morris: Thank you, Mr Speaker. I refer the Minister to the question I raised with the Leader of the House on Thursday. Will the Minister provide an assurance that when the Department makes mistakes in the administration of universal credit, claimants will be fully compensated in claims backdated to the point where they will be no worse off?

Pension Equality for Women (14 Dec 2017)

Grahame Morris: I thank the more than 30 Members who have participated in the debate, either directly through speeches or in the numerous interventions. I hope that the Minister has taken note of what has been said. I am an eternal optimist, perhaps formed by my experiences, and I think that all sides are going to build momentum and bring this campaign to a successful conclusion. I point out to the Minister,...

Pension Equality for Women (14 Dec 2017)

Grahame Morris: I beg to move, That this House calls on the Government to publish proposals to provide a non-means tested bridging solution for all women born on or after 6 April 1950 who are affected by changes to the State Pension age in the 1995 and 2011 Pension Acts. I thank the Backbench Business Committee for granting this debate, and the sponsors who have supported me in the application for it. I...

Pension Equality for Women (14 Dec 2017)

Grahame Morris: I will come on to the Minister’s remarks in that debate, but if he did want to take the opportunity, I am sure that the WASPI women would welcome it. What we and the campaign are asking for, as set out in the motion, is simple: a non-means-tested bridging pension. That would mean that some 3.8 million women would not have to live in poverty. The pension would be paid as a percentage of...

Pension Equality for Women (14 Dec 2017)

Grahame Morris: I am grateful for that intervention. I shall come to some of the proposals that have been made and how the injustice might be addressed.

Pension Equality for Women (14 Dec 2017)

Grahame Morris: I completely agree. We have debated this issue many times—perhaps 29 or 30—in the Chamber and Westminster Hall, and we have been incredibly active over the past few months. Early-day motion 63 has 195 signatures, while an e-petition that was laid before Parliament attracted 109,000 signatures, and that number continues to grow. A Westminster Hall debate was so oversubscribed that...

Pension Equality for Women (14 Dec 2017)

Grahame Morris: Absolutely. There are a number of options. There are things that the Minister could do immediately to mitigate and alleviate the worst hardship that is being suffered. This is a matter of concern throughout the House, as is demonstrated by the number of signatures to the early-day motion, and representations have been made from every UK nation and region, as well as every political party in...
