Foreign Fighters and the Death Penalty: Points of Order (23 Jul 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Four and a half weeks ago, Bishop James Jones published a report on Gosport War Memorial Hospital that indicated at least 460 elderly people had died inadvertently by infusion of opiates. I immediately wrote to the Prime Minister expressing my gratitude that the relatives had finally got to the truth, but expressing their desire and demand for justice. I...

Esa Underpayments: Business of the House (19 Jul 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: Four weeks ago, Bishop James Jones published a report on the Gosport War Memorial Hospital showing that at least 560 elderly patients had inadvertently died as a result of opiate transfusions. I put it in layman’s terms by saying that at least 560 people were killed. I immediately wrote to the Prime Minister asking that the relatives get the justice they deserve and that the Government...

Esa Underpayments (19 Jul 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: I thank the shadow disability Minister for bringing the urgent question to the House. The Minister will know that the fact that at least £390 million is owed to tens of thousands of sick and disabled people—the most vulnerable people—is a shocking revelation. I have two questions. First, will the Minister give an estimate of how long it will take for the people affected to...

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: On that basis, is not one of the challenges that the severe Brexiteers never mention the fact that the Americans use a great deal of chlorine in the preservation of food, and unless we have a proper regulatory framework, as we do currently, there is a real danger that those kinds of foodstuffs will come into the United Kingdom?

Universal Credit (5 Jul 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: That is always a challenge, Mr Speaker, but I will try. Regrettably, I believe that the Secretary of State gave only a partial apology, because she did not take account of the fact that her own Department confirmed to the NAO on 6 June that its report was based on the most accurate and up-to-date information, yet the other day she indicated that the NAO report could be out of date. I think...

Govia Thameslink/Rail Electrification (3 Jul 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: Since the timetable changes, travelling on Southern from Eastbourne and Hampden Park has been horrific for my constituents. I was told this morning that a journey that should have taken an hour and a half had taken three and a half hours. The Minister has talked about substantial additional compensation for people travelling on Northern. May I urge him also to make a commitment to those...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (3 Jul 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: As the Ministers on the Treasury Bench know, there are strongly held and differing views about the fairness of the implementation of the Treasury’s 2019 loan charge. Recent media reports have identified the severe impact that this huge retrospective charge is having on the mental health of some contractors, and I have real concerns for their wellbeing. Will the Minister commit to...

Nuclear Sector Deal (28 Jun 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: The costs of all renewable technologies, including wind and solar, have fallen faster than almost anyone predicted, and they now represent much better-value low-carbon energy. However, the Government cut investment in renewables by more than 50% in 2017, and just this week they rejected proposals for the Swansea Bay tidal lagoon. Is this additional investment in nuclear further evidence that...

Universal Credit and Welfare Changes (21 Jun 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: I appreciate you giving me the opportunity to ask a question, Mr Deputy Speaker, because I was unavoidably detained and missed the early part of the statement. Listening to the Secretary of State’s answers, it appears that she agrees with anything positive the NAO report says, but the whole stream of things that the NAO says are a real problem with universal credit are completely...

Gosport Independent Panel: Publication of Report (20 Jun 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: Ten years ago, a constituent came to see me called Mrs Gillian McKenzie. She told me a story that sounded so far-fetched that I struggled to believe it. In her opinion, her mother and many other elderly people had effectively been killed before their time at a hospital in Gosport. I found it staggering. I then read the hundreds of pages of documents that this amazing woman, Mrs McKenzie, had...

Gosport Independent Panel: Publication of Report (20 Jun 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: I am, Mr Speaker. I appreciate the latitude. This has been a 10-year battle. Today, the relatives got the truth. The relatives and I demand justice. I urge the House, the Government and the police to do everything necessary to ensure that the individuals named in the report are brought to justice.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (5 Jun 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: I was contacted recently by my constituent, Anna Arnone, who was employed as a prosecuting barrister by the CPS. Her work allegedly was removed without notice or explanation, and she was refused any statutory interest on the amount owed. Will the Minister commit to look into my constituent’s case if I forward her the details?

Personal Independence Payments (4 Jun 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: Mr Justice Mostyn in his ruling on Motability, which the Government also accepted, said of the 2017 regulations: “The wish to save nearly £1 billion at the expense of those with mental health impairments is not a reasonable foundation for passing this measure.” The Secretary of State has made a welcome second U-turn, so do the Government recognise that not cutting corporation...

National Funding Formula: Social Mobility — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (22 May 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: On that basis, how does the Minister explain the fact that in the past 18 months or so the number of schools releasing teaching assistants has grown faster than in the previous few years? Does he accept that that must be because of budgetary pressures and that, if it happens across the piece, it could lead to severe challenges down the line?

National Funding Formula: Social Mobility — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (22 May 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: The Minister has been talking a lot about the national fair funding formula and the additional money in the constituencies of the hon. Member for South Shields (Mrs Lewell-Buck) and of my hon. Friends the Members for Bath (Wera Hobhouse) and for Oxford West and Abingdon (Layla Moran). When exactly will that national funding formula come in? Does the Minister acknowledge that when it comes...

National Funding Formula: Social Mobility — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (22 May 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: It is a privilege to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Walker. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Bath (Wera Hobhouse) for securing the debate. It was very short-notice but, as she flagged up, this is an important issue. This is one of those fascinating debates where it is a bit like the old cliché of apples and pears, in the sense that one side says one thing, and the other side...

National Funding Formula: Social Mobility — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (22 May 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: I entirely agree. A lot of it was apparently not new money, and anyway, even with the best will in the world, it just held everything in place for 12 months—it did not solve the problem. As my hon. Friend has emphasised, as we began to pick into and drill down into those figures, what did we discover? We discovered that quite a lot of it was not the new money it was initially alleged to...

National Funding Formula: Social Mobility — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (22 May 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: My hon. Friend is so right. We know that is true. Hon. Members will have spoken to their local headteachers and visited their schools. The number of teaching assistants has been slashed, and support for disabled children is under tremendous pressure. The schools are creaking—there are no two ways about it. I know that the budget is huge and there are thousands and thousands of schools...

Sale of Puppies — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (21 May 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on his introduction to this important debate. Will he confirm that there has been some misunderstanding out there that this petition would actually prevent charities from helping to move on dogs? That is not the case at all; it would strengthen their hand.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Universal Credit: Private Rented Sector Evictions (21 May 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: What assessment she has made of the effect of the roll-out of universal credit on the number of evictions in the private rented sector.
