NHS Long-Term Plan: Committee on Standards: Cox Report (7 Jan 2019)

John Stevenson: There is only a short amount of time for each speaker, so I will not take any interventions. The only thing that I want to bring to the House’s attention is the fact that we must make this change with our eyes open. There are constitutional issues, so we must ensure that we do this with the full knowledge of the consequences. We must consider the individuals who will become lay members of...

NHS Long-Term Plan: Committee on Standards: Cox Report (7 Jan 2019)

John Stevenson: As my right hon. Friend knows, I tabled an amendment relating to that issue. What I seek from her is an assurance that, when the Gemma White inquiry reports, we shall have an opportunity to revisit the issue and ensure that her analysis can be taken into consideration.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Leaving the Customs Union and Single Market: Scotland (11 Dec 2018)

John Stevenson: Does the Minister agree that what is of equal importance are the economic relationships within the UK, and that initiatives such as the borderlands growth initiative are a priority for the people of the borderlands region?

Immigration (Time Limit on Detention): [2nd Allotted Day] (5 Dec 2018)

John Stevenson: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Newcastle-under-Lyme (Paul Farrelly). In many respects, this is the classic issue for MPs—what are their priorities? Are they based on their personal view, their constituency’s view, or the view of the party that they should perhaps be following? Then, ultimately, how do they make their decision in the national interest? Generally speaking,...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Nuclear Power (20 Nov 2018)

John Stevenson: The Government were very keen to emphasise that the Toshiba-Korea Electric Power Corporation negotiations over NuGen were a commercial matter. If the Chinese nuclear company CGN—China General Nuclear Power Group—agrees to develop Moorside on a commercial basis, with no Government subsidy, would the Government support it?

Nuclear Power: Toshiba (12 Nov 2018)

John Stevenson: From where I am sending, it appears the Government do not have a coherent energy policy, particularly with regard to nuclear, and that has clearly had an impact on the Cumbrian economy. Given what has happened at Moorside, what does the Minister intend to do to support the Cumbrian economy?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: School Funding (6 Nov 2018)

John Stevenson: Education at all levels clearly matters for our economy and our country. Financing education properly is important, and I will be taking a keen interest during the spending review. However, does the Chancellor agree that money is not everything and that good teaching and well-managed schools are of equal importance?

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (1 Nov 2018)

John Stevenson: It is a pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for Doncaster North (Edward Miliband). He made an interesting speech, although I think he missed out one aspect that I will touch on. I want to refer to the macroeconomic situation. The Government’s priority has been to reduce the deficit and to see debt falling as a percentage of GDP—something with which I completely agree and is...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (1 Nov 2018)

John Stevenson: I completely agree—the central theme of my speech is exactly that. We have to recognise the success of the south of England and also make sure that other parts of the country are equally successful and drive the productivity goals that we all want. There is a housing imbalance that we have to acknowledge as well. The south-east and the south are where we find housing pressures regarding...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Energy Prices (16 Oct 2018)

John Stevenson: What steps he is taking to tackle rising energy prices.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Energy Prices (16 Oct 2018)

John Stevenson: I thank the Minister for that positive response. Given that we as a society want carbon-free energy but also low energy costs, does she agree that requiring all newly built residential properties to incorporate solar panels would be a step in the right direction, and will she ask her Department to consider that initiative?

Tenant Fees Bill: Prohibitions applying to landlords (5 Sep 2018)

John Stevenson: Will the Minister give way?

Tenant Fees Bill: Prohibitions applying to landlords (5 Sep 2018)

John Stevenson: The Minister referred to certain clauses being in a tenancy agreement with which the tenant would be obliged to comply. Agricultural law lays down prescribed clauses that have to be incorporated into agricultural tenancies. Has any thought been given to the Government setting out prescribed clauses to be incorporated into a tenancy agreement for residential property?

Nuclear Sector Deal — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (11 Jul 2018)

John Stevenson: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that it is important to have joined-up thinking within Government in this area? Yes, this is the nuclear sector deal, but it goes beyond nuclear. We need to get the Department for Transport, the Treasury and BEIS involved, so that we address issues such as the A595, which he rightly points out is badly in need of improvement.

Nuclear Sector Deal — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (11 Jul 2018)

John Stevenson: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Copeland (Trudy Harrison) on securing the debate on an issue that is important nationally, regionally and of course to her constituency. I welcome the nuclear sector deal. Clearly, it is not a panacea, but it is an important and significant deal which will undoubtedly help the sector—in many respects it is a signpost for the industry. The...

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: UK Trade With EU: Falkland Islands (6 Jul 2018)

John Stevenson: To ask the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, what steps the Government is taking to ensure that the Falkland Islands retains tariff free access to the EU after the UK leaves the EU.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU: Economic Growth (6 Jun 2018)

John Stevenson: Does the Secretary of State agree that what really matters to the growth rates and success of the Scottish economy is the Union of the United Kingdom? Does he agree that that is most demonstrated by the border area?

Gaza: Un Human Rights Council Vote: Tenant Fees Bill (21 May 2018)

John Stevenson: I will make just a short contribution, Madam Deputy Speaker. I first draw the House’s attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. I am a solicitor at a legal practice that owns an estate agents. As we know, Second Reading debates are about the general principles of a Bill, and that is where I want to concentrate my speech. My instinct is to be very careful about...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Policing Budgets (2 May 2018)

John Stevenson: Does the Minister agree that policing is not just about budgets and money, although they do matter, but about leadership, strategy and organisation?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (2 May 2018)

John Stevenson: A couple of weeks ago, the Prime Minister indicated that she was minded to visit my constituency of Carlisle. I am delighted to inform her that from 4 June she will be able to fly into Carlisle on a commercial flight for the first time in 30 years. She will arrive in a city that is at the centre of the United Kingdom and a city recently described as “the beating heart” of the borderlands...
