Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Demolition of Khan al-Ahmar (4 Jul 2018)

Alex Cunningham: We are kidding ourselves if we think we can stop this illegal work with diplomacy. Diplomacy has always failed in the past, so something else needs to be done. The Minister has responded four times on the issue of banning the import of Israeli goods produced in illegal settlements, but he says such a ban has not been British policy in the past. Does that mean he is considering a change? If...

Privately Financed Prisons (27 Jun 2018)

Alex Cunningham: I appreciate there are major issues around funding prisons and keeping staff and prisoners safe. The Minister wrote to me about drug scanners in Holme House prison in Stockton North, but he did not address the issue of scanners to detect drugs concealed in prisoners’ bodies when they leave one prison for another. Will we get one soon, or is there not enough money?

Gaza: Humanitarian Situation — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (26 Jun 2018)

Alex Cunningham: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Paisley. I will concentrate my remarks on children, who have never had a say in this conflict, have never done anything to add to it and have committed no crime whatever except being born. They are suffering the most. I visited Gaza in 2012 and what I saw will stick with me for the rest of my life. I remember the people who were making the...

Gaza: Humanitarian Situation — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (26 Jun 2018)

Alex Cunningham: Indeed, that is the case. I wanted to address mental health, but I do not have sufficient time. I thoroughly believe that it is the responsibility of Governments and countries around the world to help those unable to help themselves, yet countries trying to help the Palestinians are restricted by the harsh regime imposed on the movement of goods and aid by the Israeli Government. It is not...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Leaving the EU: Aerospace Industry (11 Jun 2018)

Alex Cunningham: American-owned Darchem in Stillingham is just one of the manufacturing firms in my constituency providing aerospace and other engineering products to the military. It really needs certainty about future tariff-free trading with the EU. Will it get that tariff-free trading?

Retail Sector (6 Jun 2018)

Alex Cunningham: My home town of Stockton won the rising star award in the British high street awards, sponsored, ironically, by Marks & Spencer, which is now abandoning our town after taking profits from our people for over a century. We believe however that our town has got a future, but does my hon. Friend agree that firms like Marks & Spencer should consider the future prospects of towns properly,...

Royal Assent: NHS Outsourcing and Privatisation (23 May 2018)

Alex Cunningham: For now, NHS trusts remain the sole shareholder in their wholly owned subsidiary companies—yes, just for now—but those subsidiary companies will be easier to sell in future. The trusts have established those subsidiaries with long contracts under the misguided impression that such contracts protect the trust and the employees. What the trusts do not acknowledge is that the current...

International Trade: Leaving the EU: Preferential Market Access (17 May 2018)

International Trade: Leaving the EU: Preferential Market Access (17 May 2018)

Alex Cunningham: The REACH—registration, evaluation, authorisation and restriction of chemicals—regulations that govern production and other standards are critical to countless chemical companies in my Stockton North constituency and beyond for trade across the world. Will the Minister update the House on the progress to retain them when we leave the EU?

Alex Cunningham: If he will make a statement on his departmental responsibilities.

International Trade: Topical Questions (17 May 2018)

Alex Cunningham: In the light of the latest mass killing of Palestinian civilians by the Israel Defence Forces, will the Secretary of State review and apply the criteria for arms sales to states that violate international law?

Gaza Border Violence (15 May 2018)

Alex Cunningham: Given the ongoing oppression of the Palestinian people in Gaza and the illegal occupation of the west bank, how confident is the Minister that Israel will ever allow any of the kind of investment and development he said is needed in Palestine—in Gaza, in particular?

Alex Cunningham: What assessment her Department has made of the effect on Northern Ireland of the UK leaving the EU.

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Leaving the EU (9 May 2018)

Alex Cunningham: The Department for Exiting the European Union’s own impact report predicts an 8% hit to economic growth in Northern Ireland—a part of the UK that has long been less economically developed than others—after we leave the EU. Why are the Secretary of State and the Minister prepared to let Northern Ireland suffer, when they could avoid that by following the Labour party’s...

Health and Social Care: NHS Dentistry (8 May 2018)

Alex Cunningham: How many people have accessed NHS dentistry services in the last 12 months for which data is available.

Health and Social Care: NHS Dentistry (8 May 2018)

Alex Cunningham: Twelve thousand of those people in my constituency were left without a dentist when the Queensway practice in Billingham, in common with many dentists across the country, ditched NHS work. People are trying to build capacity there, but the funding system for dentists is a major impediment. What plans do the Government have to address the crisis in NHS dentistry, encourage dentists to stay...

Exiting the European Union: Non-UK EU Citizens (3 May 2018)

Alex Cunningham: What progress has been made during negotiations on agreeing new arrangements for the rights of non-UK EU citizens after the UK leaves the EU.

Exiting the European Union: Non-UK EU Citizens (3 May 2018)

Alex Cunningham: Following yesterday’s debate about the Windrush generation and the Prime Minister’s decision to hide the whole business behind a cloak of secrecy, what plans does the Minister have to talk to the Home Secretary to ensure that the process to deal with EU nationals will be open and transparent, and to ensure that their right to remain is fully protected, so they do not fear removal...

Financial Guidance and Claims Bill [Lords]: Unsolicited direct marketing: other consumer financial products etc (24 Apr 2018)

Alex Cunningham: I want to speak briefly to new clause 2. While I am sure, Madam Deputy Speaker, that you have many years to go before you reach your own mid-life point, I am sure you will understand that we could all use a bit of advice at times—even though those of us with six decades or so behind us think it our duty to pass on pearls of wisdom to the younger generation. There is plenty of talk about...
