Enterprise Bill [Lords] — [2ndAllocated Day]: Clause 33 — Extended Sunday opening hours and Sunday working (9 Mar 2016)

John Stevenson: The hon. Lady is banging on about fairness. Is it fair for a business in Scotland potentially to have a competitive advantage over a business that is 9 miles away?

Enterprise Bill [Lords] — [2ndAllocated Day]: Clause 33 — Extended Sunday opening hours and Sunday working (9 Mar 2016)

John Stevenson: Does the hon. Gentleman not think it is right that the people of Carlisle should decide whether shops are open on a Sunday, so that they can compete on an equal footing with Scotland, which is only nine miles away?

Enterprise Bill [Lords] — [2ndAllocated Day]: Clause 33 — Extended Sunday opening hours and Sunday working (9 Mar 2016)

John Stevenson: I live in Carlisle. Last Sunday, I went shopping in Gretna. Is it not right that the people of Carlisle get the same opportunity as Scottish people to decide whether we should be open on Sundays?

Opposition Day — [19th Allotted Day] — Transitional State Pension Arrangements for Women: Police Funding, Crime and Community Safety (24 Feb 2016)

John Stevenson: The police seem to be a popular subject in this House, as we have discussed them on several occasions, and I must say Labour’s arguments have not really moved on. Today’s debate gives me an opportunity to reiterate some comments and observations that I have made in previous such debates. It is important that we now look forward and not back. There are two key issues, one of which is...

Opposition Day — [19th Allotted Day] — Transitional State Pension Arrangements for Women: Police Funding, Crime and Community Safety (24 Feb 2016)

John Stevenson: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that when it comes to policing, it is not just a question of money but a question of structure? Will he acknowledge that the SNP Government made a mistake in reducing their police to a single force?

Police Grant Report (England and Wales): Local Government Finance (England) (10 Feb 2016)

John Stevenson: Does my hon. Friend also welcome the news that Labour-run Carlisle and Labour-run Cumbria are also receiving some transitional relief?

Police Grant Report (England and Wales) (10 Feb 2016)

John Stevenson: On that point, does my hon. Friend agree that such innovations and making our police forces far more efficient have been due to the introduction of police and crime commissioners?

Police Grant Report (England and Wales) (10 Feb 2016)

John Stevenson: I would like to say a few words about police funding and, in particular, its significance for policing in Cumbria. There are two key issues: first, the police budget itself, which we are discussing; and secondly, the police funding formula, which is for the future but of equal importance. Before doing so, I would like to make one or two general observations. It is well documented that...

Written Answers — Scotland Office: Urban Areas: Scotland (10 Feb 2016)

John Stevenson: To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland, what discussions he has had with local authorities in Scotland on City Deals.

Business of the House (4 Feb 2016)

John Stevenson: Carlisle and Cumbria are starting to experience recruitment issues, and, in time, there could well be a skills shortage. In many respects, that is partly an indication of success, but that success will be further exacerbated by the potential large investment into Cumbria, which will raise issues about attracting the right people with the right skills into the county. Will the Leader of the...

Cycling: Government Investment (3 Feb 2016)

John Stevenson: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing the debate. In Pendle, a huge number of firms have taken advantage of the Government’s scheme. One is Carradice cycle bags in Nelson, in my constituency. It has seen a huge increase in the number of employees cycling to work thanks to the Government’s initiative, so it is important to continue it in the years to come.

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Floods: Effect on Businesses (2 Feb 2016)

John Stevenson: A large number of businesses in Carlisle were affected by the floods. However, they affected not just businesses but the rugby club, the squash club, the tennis club and the cricket club in my constituency. Will the Secretary of State look at providing support for those organisations as well as for businesses?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Northern Powerhouse (19 Jan 2016)

John Stevenson: What progress he has made on the establishment of the northern powerhouse.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Northern Powerhouse (19 Jan 2016)

John Stevenson: I, like many of my constituents, want Carlisle and Cumbria to be part of the northern powerhouse. This is partly about ensuring the private sector invests and grows and partly about skills and infrastructure, but then there is the proposed Cumbrian deal. Will the Chancellor assure me that everything is being done, from the Government’s perspective, to achieve this deal, and will an elected...

Housing and Planning Bill — [2nd Allocated Day]: New Clause 62 — Offence of contravening an overcrowding notice: level of fine (12 Jan 2016)

John Stevenson: I want to say a few words about new clause 42. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for St Albans (Mrs Main) for her support, and I entirely agree with what she said earlier. The Minister will be pleased to know that I do not intend to press the new clause to a vote. However, I seek a reassurance from him that the issue will be properly reviewed in 2017—as has been proposed by Ministers...

Housing and Planning Bill — [2nd Allocated Day]: New Clause 62 — Offence of contravening an overcrowding notice: level of fine (12 Jan 2016)

John Stevenson: That is an interesting point. Although I have concentrated on just one aspect of mobile homes, I think that the 2017 review should consider the issue holistically, across the board, rather than focusing on one or two specific issues. My new clause would reduce the maximum commission to 5%. I accept that there are counter-arguments. Site owners suggest that the commission forms part of their...

Opposition Day — [14th Allotted Day] — Universal Credit Work Allowance: Flooding (6 Jan 2016)

John Stevenson: First, may I reiterate my thanks to not only the emergency services, but the families, friends, neighbours and communities who did so much during the floods to help the people of my constituency who were directly and, indeed, indirectly affected? I was also very pleased that the Prime Minister came to Carlisle immediately after the initial floods to see the issues for himself. That certainly...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Fiscal Framework (6 Jan 2016)

John Stevenson: The success of the fiscal framework is vital to the future success of the tax powers that have been devolved. Confidence in the framework is vital for individuals and businesses, particularly in the border region. Does the Secretary of State believe that the Scottish Government are approaching the discussions in good faith, which will be fair to people on both sides of the border?

Flooding (5 Jan 2016)

John Stevenson: I express my thanks to the Government and Ministers for their collective response to the floods. It was prompt, and I firmly believe it has been constructive and helpful to the people of Carlisle and Cumbria. However, will the Secretary of State give my constituents an assurance that not next week, not next month, but in six or 12 months’ time, she will ensure that the Government are still...

Counter-terrorism (5 Jan 2016)

John Stevenson: I appreciate the work of the security services and the police in dealing with counter-terrorism. Clearly a great deal of their work is focused on overseas issues and security within the capital. Can the Home Secretary assure me that she is confident that enough counter-terrorism work is being done to ensure the safety and security of the British people in other cities and towns up and down...
