Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Air Travel: Disabled People (22 Nov 2018)

Karl Turner: There have been many reports recently of disabled people suffering poor service when travelling by plane, yet we still await publication of the aviation strategy, which might offer some reassurance to disabled air passengers. Why has the strategy not been published? When will it be published?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (21 Nov 2018)

Karl Turner: The Government snuck out changes to the police pension scheme, and Humberside’s chief constable, Lee Freeman, has written to MPs describing the impact as “devastating”. If the Government do not change tack, this would cost the force £9.2 million. It would mean doing away with 130 police officers or all 250 police community support officers. Is the Prime Minister worried about this? Or...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (13 Nov 2018)

Karl Turner: The criminal justice system is on its knees. The police and the Crown Prosecution Service are failing to make important disclosures in criminal proceedings because they do not have the necessary staff. Defendants are representing themselves, often in complex cases, because they have failed to qualify for legal aid. Interpreters are not turning up because the system is broken. Solicitors and...

Leaving the EU: Aviation Sector — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (31 Oct 2018)

Karl Turner: Considering that we are five months away from leaving the European Union, does the Minister think that everything is in place? Is he confident that there will not be any major problems, such as those that have been spoken about by hon. Members today?

Leaving the EU: Aviation Sector — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (31 Oct 2018)

Karl Turner: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone, and I pay tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Wythenshawe and Sale East (Mike Kane) for securing this important and timely debate. His excellent speech set out the current and future benefits of the aviation sector, as well as the possible risks. He said that more than 25,000 jobs—a staggering number—are directly...

Road Safety — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (16 Oct 2018)

Karl Turner: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mrs Moon. I pay tribute to the hon. Member for Stoke-on-Trent South (Jack Brereton) for securing this important and timely debate. He is clearly very committed to making roads safer in his constituency and he speaks with great knowledge of the subject. The Government recently published their 2017 figures for reported road casualties in Great...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Careers at Sea (11 Oct 2018)

Karl Turner: It is scandalous that British officers and ratings hold fewer than 20% of jobs on UK vessels, while the shipping companies reap the benefits from the tonnage tax. Does the Minister agree that we need to create a mandatory link to training and employment of British seafarers, including ratings, as other EU countries have?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Careers at Sea (11 Oct 2018)

Karl Turner: There is no link for ratings. It is not true.

Backbench Business: Road Safety (Schools) — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (13 Sep 2018)

Karl Turner: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Evans. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Liverpool, West Derby (Stephen Twigg) on securing this crucial debate. He has long been a prominent campaigner for better road safety, not only as a Member of Parliament but, as we have heard, when he was a Minister in the Department for Education, where he did a great deal of work to...

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill: Listing of automated vehicles by the Secretary of State (26 Jun 2018)

Karl Turner: I do not intend to speak for long because we support the aims of this Bill. However, we want to ensure that the UK remains at the forefront of research and development in this important and fast-moving industry. We supported the Bill first time round and welcome these amendments today. That is largely because of the good work of our colleagues in the other place, and I pay tribute to them....

Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

Karl Turner: Let me start by commending those who have spoken today. The issue of airport expansion has been around at least since 2008, and Members have been campaigning on both sides of the argument since long before then. I recognise that those on both sides have strong views, but I think we can all agree that the tone of today’s debate has been relatively comradely. As we have made clear throughout...

Airports National Policy Statement — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (7 Jun 2018)

Karl Turner: It is always an absolute pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hanson. I start by paying tribute to the Transport Committee, chaired by my hon. Friend the Member for Nottingham South (Lilian Greenwood), for the comprehensive work it has done in thoroughly scrutinising the Government’s draft airport national policy statement. I also commend right hon. and hon. Members across the...

Heathrow (7 Jun 2018)

Karl Turner: I congratulate the right hon. Member for Putney (Justine Greening) on securing the urgent question. This appears to be a devastating revelation, and it is beyond belief that when such a bombshell has landed, the Secretary of State is not here to respond. Yesterday, the Prime Minister said: “The statement of principles… does not give Heathrow Airport Ltd the right to claim any costs or...

Heathrow (7 Jun 2018)

Karl Turner: Shocking.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Heathrow: Third Runway (24 May 2018)

Karl Turner: That is very kind, Mr Speaker. Thank you very much indeed. Can the Secretary of State confirm whether he will be revising the airports national policy statement in light of the 25 recommendations from the Transport Committee?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Lorry Parking (1 Mar 2018)

Karl Turner: The chairman of Maritime UK has said that, if a deal is not reached on Brexit, lorry drivers could be stuck on the main roads to Dover for up to two days. Even if a deal is reached, with a hard border at vital ferry ports, the industry is warning that customs and port health checks will cause massive disruptions. What concrete assurances can the Secretary of State give us that that will not...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Road Safety (1 Mar 2018)

Karl Turner: Does the Minister not recognise the correlation between his Government’s decision to scrap road safety targets, introduced by Labour, and their failure to reduce the number of those seriously injured or killed on our roads?

Space Industry Bill [Lords]: Regulations: general (6 Feb 2018)

Karl Turner: I thank the Government Front-Bench team for the spirit of co-operation in which the Bill has been handled, and I thank the Minister’s officials, who have worked very hard on it as well. I also thank my colleagues in the other place, where the Bill began, for their very valuable work. They secured a number of important concessions, including the removal of Henry VIII powers, and pressed the...

Space Industry Bill [Lords]: Publication of regulations (6 Feb 2018)

Karl Turner: I rise to speak to amendment 4, which I tabled, as well as the remaining new clauses and amendments. Amendment 4 would give clarity to the UK’s space industry. As it stands, the Bill makes no provision to ensure that the industry works with the Government to create the regulatory framework that it so badly needs. The amendment would increase the focus on making the UK commercially...
