Financial Services Bill: New Clause 27 - Money laundering offences: electronic money institutions, payment institutions and deposit-taking bodies (13 Jan 2021)

Andrew Jones: The core purpose of the Bill is to ensure that the regulatory framework for financial services will continue to be effective now that we have left the EU. Of course, there are other measures in the Bill, on matters such as the open market arrangements with Gibraltar and debt advice; it is wide in scope. In Committee, we considered the Bill in detail, and I commend my hon. Friend the Minister...

I recognise that leaving the EU is a field full of tough issues, but...

Prime Minister: Engagements (9 Dec 2020)

Andrew Jones: Today is the 60th anniversary of “Coronation Street”, the world’s longest running TV drama series. This is an amazing landmark, so congratulations to it.

However, we have had the Oakervee report, which recommended that the Government committed to HS2 and its full y-shaped network serving both...

Northern Ireland (Ways and Means) (8 Dec 2020)

Andrew Jones: It is always a pleasure to follow my right hon. Friend the Member for East Antrim (Sammy Wilson). He is one of the most effective and passionate communicators in this Chamber and, if nothing else today, he has reminded the Labour party that there are two sides in a negotiation. We have had a very wide-ranging debate so far, some of it even on the ways and means resolutions. Should these...

Defence: Armed Forces Veterans: Covid-19 Response (7 Dec 2020)

Andrew Jones: I thank my hon. Friend for that answer. I think the nation has been inspired by the actions of one veteran during this pandemic, and that, of course, is Captain Sir Tom Moore, but veterans from all of our services have got so much to offer—skills in a wide variety of areas, involvement in many community groups and an approach to getting things done—so how is my hon. Friend ensuring that...

Environment, food and rural affairs: Air Quality (26 Nov 2020)

The one at Bond End in Knaresborough saw junction improvements a couple of years ago that improved the situation, but another, at Woodlands junction in Harrogate, continues to break NOx levels, and that must change. What help is my hon. Friend giving to local authorities to help them to reduce NOx levels?

Environment, food and rural affairs: Topical Questions (26 Nov 2020)

Andrew Jones: My right hon. Friend’s Department is a very busy one right now, but may I ask him to look at the issue of animal cruelty sentences? I know that the Government are looking to legislate to increase sentencing. Animals feel pain and emotion, and all of us in this House have probably had terrible cases of animal cruelty in our constituencies, which can be upsetting for all our communities. What...

Spending Review 2020 and OBR Forecast (25 Nov 2020)

Andrew Jones: I welcome the focus on infrastructure in the statement. As my right hon.

Education: Educational Attainment (23 Nov 2020)

Andrew Jones: I thank my hon. Friend for that answer. As she is planning the budgets and assessing the regional challenges, will she take into consideration the different levels of pandemic across the country?
