Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Steel Procurement (12 Sep 2018)

Nicholas Dakin: The UK steel industry continues to face challenges. The Government promised in their 2016 guidance on steel procurement that they would publish individual Departments’ performance on steel procurement. When will they publish that information and be transparent about this?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Sixth Form Students: Funding (10 Sep 2018)

Nicholas Dakin: There has not been a rate rise for 16 to 18-year-old provision for a very long time, and there is a real danger of cost pressures from pay increases and pension increases. What will the Government do to make sure that those cost pressures do not act as yet a further cut to funding for this very important age group?

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Broadband and Mobile Phone Coverage (6 Sep 2018)

Nicholas Dakin: The people of Cleatham, Manton and Greetwell keep being promised superfast broadband by North Lincolnshire Council and BT Openreach, and the date keeps moving away. What can be done to make sure these things are delivered, rather than continuing to go further and further away?

Petition - Funding Cuts to North Lincolnshire Citizens Advice Bureau (17 Jul 2018)

Nicholas Dakin: I rise to present a petition on North Lincolnshire citizens advice bureau and its importance and value to the community. We are often advised to use the citizens advice bureau, so it is a shame that Conservative-controlled North Lincolnshire Council has cuts its core funding. I praise Julian Corlett and other campaigners for amassing this petition of significant size. The petition states: The...

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill: EU VAT area and pre-commencement requirements (16 Jul 2018)

Nicholas Dakin: I apologise for the fact that I had to attend a Statutory Instrument Committee, but I was present at the beginning and I am here now. It is a pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for Chelsea and Fulham (Greg Hands), who brought us back to the detail of the Bill, which is where I wish to focus my remarks. I was concerned that the proposed dumping methodology might not address the UK steel...

Backbench Business: 2015 Steel Summit Commitments (10 Jul 2018)

Nicholas Dakin: The Minister is setting out her stall very well, but as she has said, most of the benefits that we have at the moment are down to global changes and the restructuring that the industry has done itself. The assistance on energy prices was in train before the steel crisis in 2015. Since the crisis, there has been some progress on procurement, but frankly the steel sector deal, which the...

Backbench Business: 2015 Steel Summit Commitments (10 Jul 2018)

Nicholas Dakin: UK Steel was disappointed with the Government’s response to the sector deal proposals so far—not because there are not weaknesses in what it has put forward that it is aware of, but because the things that were highlighted were not, bluntly, weaknesses. There needs to be a proper dialogue going on that delivers an outcome. How long does the Minister think it will be before we have...

Backbench Business: 2015 Steel Summit Commitments (10 Jul 2018)

Nicholas Dakin: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing the debate. Listening to her analysis, a balanced scorecard on the Government’s performance would not show a terribly high score. Does she agree that, three years on from that steel summit, it would probably be a good idea for the Government to convene a steel summit to review how the industry is doing now and set us fair for the future?

Points of Order (5 Jul 2018)

Nicholas Dakin: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. I rise to support the Chair of the Procedure Committee, the hon. Member for Broxbourne (Mr Walker). Our Committee did this work at an accelerated pace and published a report some time ago, as he said. There is no reason whatsoever for this delay. As I said to the Leader of the House in business questions last week, we need to get on with this. I...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: E10 Fuel (5 Jul 2018)

Nicholas Dakin: The forthcoming mandatory changes to pump labelling are the perfect opportunity to consider introducing E10. Will the Minister confirm that there will be a question in that consultation that allows people to respond on introducing E10 in the future?

Petition - Closure of Sandfield House (4 Jul 2018)

Nicholas Dakin: Mental health services are a very important part of the provision in north Lincolnshire. I pay tribute to Catherine Lydon and others who have helped to pull this petition together of many hundreds of people locally, who are concerned about the closure of Sandfield House, which provides important and effective mental health services to local people. The Petition states: The petition of...

Football: Safe Standing — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (25 Jun 2018)

Nicholas Dakin: I only wish Scunthorpe United’s finishing was as good as England’s last night. During my time supporting the mighty Iron, they have played in leagues one and two of the Football League, with occasional visits to the championship. When Scunthorpe moved from the Old Showground to the newly built Glanford Park in 1988, it was the first new Football League stadium to be built for 33...

Nicholas Dakin: Further to the previous question, what are the Government doing to address the issue of academies excluding people with special educational needs, which is contributing to the rise in exclusions?

Business of the House (21 Jun 2018)

Nicholas Dakin: I was disappointed with what the Leader said about the nodding through problem yesterday, because it did not marry with my understanding of the facts of the situation in terms of how I was supporting my hon. Friend the Member for Bradford West (Naz Shah). I am, however, pleased that the right hon. Lady announced a debate on proxy voting on 5 July. Will it include consideration of the...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Football Grounds: Safe Standing Areas (21 Jun 2018)

Nicholas Dakin: I welcome the Minister’s comments and hope that she intends to fully involve supporters’ groups such as Scunthorpe United’s Iron Trust in her deliberations.

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (19 Jun 2018)

Nicholas Dakin: NICE guide- lines on IVF seem to be largely honoured in the breach, leading to a postcode lottery across the country. Is it acceptable that women in North Lincolnshire who cannot conceive are being refused IVF if their partner has had children in another relationship?
