Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Wildlife Crime (31 Oct 2019)

Andrew Jones: What plans her Department has to tackle wildlife crime.

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Wildlife Crime (31 Oct 2019)

Andrew Jones: I am concerned, along with many constituents who have contacted me on this issue, that the persecution of raptors is not treated as a priority by local police forces. Can my right hon. Friend confirm that raptor persecution, particularly that of hen harriers, is a national wildlife crime priority and that strong penalties are in place for offences committed against birds of prey?

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (31 Oct 2019)

Andrew Jones: I am keen that the next generation are engaged with why climate change happens and what they can do to prevent its impact. Harrogate Borough Council is putting in place a scheme that gives every schoolchild in the borough the opportunity to plant a tree, which will be both fun and educational. Will the Minister encourage other authorities and bodies to offer that opportunity to every...

Cross-border Trade and Accounting (30 Oct 2019)

Andrew Jones: I have to say that this is the most passionate speech on accountancy I have ever heard. I am slightly amused by, or in awe of, the idea that accountancy can save the world. To underline my hon. Friend’s point, technology removes operational burdens from business and boosts productivity. Is he going to come on to, or will he comment on, the barriers that are stopping more companies taking up...

Colne to Skipton Railway Link — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (29 Oct 2019)

Andrew Jones: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Colne to Skipton Railway Link — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (29 Oct 2019)

Andrew Jones: I will just correct the hon. Lady on this point.

Colne to Skipton Railway Link — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (29 Oct 2019)

Andrew Jones: It is always fascinating to hear a Labour transport spokesman doing their very best to justify—

Colne to Skipton Railway Link — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (29 Oct 2019)

Andrew Jones: Yes—I beg the hon. Lady’s pardon. They try to justify why so little happened under the long period of Labour Government, when they electrified just 10 miles in 13 years. This Government do not cut bus routes; this Government do not operate bus routes. This Government have actually maintained their support of the bus network through the bus service operators grant, and extra funding was...

Colne to Skipton Railway Link — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (29 Oct 2019)

Andrew Jones: It is always a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir George. As a former Transport Minister, I wish to make a few comments. The biggest challenge facing our rail network is dealing with the growth that we are experiencing. Capacity is the biggest question. We have more services on our network now than at any point in British history, with 140,000 services per week, and we have more...

Colne to Skipton Railway Link — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (29 Oct 2019)

Andrew Jones: There is absolutely no doubt that transport is a significant contributor to the carbon in our atmosphere, which is why the Government are taking action. I agree with the hon. Lady’s basic principle, but to say that the Government are not doing anything would be wrong, because there has been record investment in public transport and in our rail network, with the control period 6 budget of...

Colne to Skipton Railway Link — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (29 Oct 2019)

Andrew Jones: I have obviously seen the IPPR reports and the claims made, which frankly I think are not correct. The methodology of its reports is flawed in lots of different ways. That is why it is important to go back to the authoritative figures produced by the Infrastructure and Projects Authority, which gives us the data. I think that we need more investment in transport right across the country,...

Colne to Skipton Railway Link — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (29 Oct 2019)

Andrew Jones: Some of the rolling stock that will be entering service across the north is indeed refurbished rolling stock. The rolling stock entering service on the Leeds-Harrogate-York line is cascaded stock that has been refurbished to a condition that is as good as new, and it is absolutely fantastic. The response from the travelling public of Harrogate has been very positive, because it is a step...

Home Department: County Lines Drugs Gangs (28 Oct 2019)

Andrew Jones: What steps she is taking to tackle county lines drugs gangs.

Home Department: County Lines Drugs Gangs (28 Oct 2019)

Andrew Jones: North Yorkshire police have had recent success arresting six people in a county lines operation in Harrogate. Breaking the gangs that operate the county lines is obviously critical, but so is supporting the addicts, who are at the end of the line, and those exploited into dealing. Does my hon. Friend agree that it is through tackling both supply and demand that progress will be made in...

Business of the House (24 Oct 2019)

Andrew Jones: Many councils across the north of England, including mine in Harrogate, are supporting the northern forest with their own tree-planting programmes. May we have a debate to explore what the Government can do to support and accelerate that programme and all the environmental benefits that will flow from it?

Transport: Topical Questions (24 Oct 2019)

Andrew Jones: After a widely supported and successful campaign against a relief road in Harrogate, the transport authority is now looking at a package of sustainable measures to take transport forward in the area. What support will the Government provide to North Yorkshire County Council and other such councils developing sustainable transport packages?

Defence: Service Personnel: Recruitment and Retention (21 Oct 2019)

Andrew Jones: What steps his Department is taking to (a) recruit and (b) retain service personnel.

Defence: Service Personnel: Recruitment and Retention (21 Oct 2019)

Andrew Jones: The Harrogate and Knaresborough constituency is proud home to the Army Foundation College, which has 1,100 junior soldiers in training. Last year, the college received an “outstanding” classification from Ofsted. Does my right hon. Friend agree that the educational excellence on offer is a key part of the recruitment package for the college, and that the qualifications the junior soldiers...

Business of the House (Prorogation): Baby Loss Awareness Week (8 Oct 2019)

Andrew Jones: I associate myself with the Minister’s positive words about my right hon. Friend the Member for South West Surrey (Mr Hunt) and all he did to improve patient safety in the NHS. It was a fantastic piece of work. Mr and Mrs Pickup of Knaresborough have suffered significant personal loss but are seeking to drive change to ensure that no other family have to face the same tragedy. The issue is...
