Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill: Committee Stage (19 Jun 2018)

Gareth Johnson: Why is there this sudden interest in money resolutions from the Labour party? I cannot find a single instance of the Labour party in government looking to change the rules surrounding money resolutions, so is it simply for political expedience that this motion has been introduced today?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Knife Crime (4 Jun 2018)

Gareth Johnson: What steps he is taking to tackle knife crime.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Knife Crime (4 Jun 2018)

Gareth Johnson: Does the Secretary of State agree that we need a multi-faceted approach to tackling knife crime? It is essential that we not only disrupt but educate those people who are likely to offend, but it is also important that we retain a high likelihood of imprisonment for anyone who refuses to stop carrying a knife.

Tributes: Baroness Jowell: Schools That Work For Everyone (14 May 2018)

Gareth Johnson: Speaking as a former Kentish grammar school boy, I too welcome this funding. This is one of the few occasions on which I can recall extra money being made available specifically for grammar schools. Does the Secretary of State agree that we should never aspire to a one-size-fits-all education system? Grammar schools have a crucial role to play in achieving the diversity that he speaks about,...

Backbench Business - Banking Misconduct and the Fcabackbench Business: Crossrail Extension to Ebbsfleet (10 May 2018)

Gareth Johnson: I hear what the Minister says about the decision made not to extend out to Abbey Wood, but does he agree that this part of north Kent has changed significantly since that decision was made? We have thousands more homes and greater pressures on our rail system than at that time, and the pressure on housing generally is greater now. We also had traffic problems with the Lower Thames crossing,...

Backbench Business - Banking Misconduct and the Fcabackbench Business: Crossrail Extension to Ebbsfleet (10 May 2018)

Gareth Johnson: I am pleased to have secured this debate, and to have the opportunity to argue that the Government should prioritise the extension of the Crossrail line—now known as the Elizabeth line out of respect to Her Majesty—to Ebbsfleet in my constituency. That route was the original plan for Crossrail, so in effect I am asking for the job to be finished, and for the line to be completed...

Backbench Business - Banking Misconduct and the Fcabackbench Business: Crossrail Extension to Ebbsfleet (10 May 2018)

Gareth Johnson: It was an honour to serve for years with the hon. Lady on Bexley Borough Council. She is absolutely right. The Government try to identify locations where we can develop on brownfield sites and they are in abundance in this area. The same happened when the Labour party was in government. The infrastructure needs to be in place and a crucial part of that is Crossrail itself. If Crossrail...

Backbench Business - Banking Misconduct and the Fcabackbench Business: Crossrail Extension to Ebbsfleet (10 May 2018)

Gareth Johnson: My right hon. Friend and constituency neighbour makes a very important point. I read today that some 2 million journeys are carried out from constituencies in the south-east, such as Sevenoaks and Dartford, to Heathrow. A large proportion of those 2 million journeys would be unnecessary if there was a direct connection between Ebbsfleet and Heathrow airport. It is possible to go from Heathrow...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Ticket Prices: National Sporting Events (10 May 2018)

Gareth Johnson: The Minister will be aware that netball was developed in my Dartford constituency. The sport is growing in popularity and, of course, the England netball team recently won gold at the Commonwealth games. Will she join me in welcoming the fact that the next netball world cup is to be hosted by England, where we hope not only that ticket prices will be reasonable, but that England will prevail...

Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill: Assaults on police constables (27 Apr 2018)

Gareth Johnson: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill: Assaults on police constables (27 Apr 2018)

Gareth Johnson: Will the hon. Gentleman confirm that the Bill is not intended to be an exhaustive list of the instances where a court can find that aggravating circumstances apply? The last thing that we want is for a court to say that an incident is not covered by the Bill and therefore cannot find it to be an aggravated offence, because the perpetrator might then receive a lesser sentence than they would now.

Transport for the South East — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (25 Apr 2018)

Gareth Johnson: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Transport for the South East — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (25 Apr 2018)

Gareth Johnson: That is very good timing—perhaps I should have let my hon. Friend continue. As he mentioned High Speed 1, does he agree that the Elizabeth line—the Crossrail system—which is very much to be welcomed, is nevertheless unsatisfactory because it falls 10 miles short of High Speed 1 at Abbey Wood? There is a gap of 10 miles that prevents commuters going from Windsor and the west...

Syria (16 Apr 2018)

Gareth Johnson: Does the Prime Minister agree that it is frankly astonishing that over the past week the Leader of the Opposition has spent more time and effort attacking us than attacking President Assad? Does she also agree that it is therefore hardly surprising that some people question whose side he is on—theirs or ours?

Syria (16 Apr 2018)

Gareth Johnson: rose—

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

Gareth Johnson: May I associate myself with the Prime Minister’s earlier comments? Britain’s ability to trade with the world has been curtailed by the EU for over 40 years, but we have now won the ability to sign our own trade agreements around the world. Does the Prime Minister agree that that is Brexit’s greatest opportunity, and ensures that we can embrace the globe as a truly proud...

Business of the House (15 Mar 2018)

Gareth Johnson: Each and every week across England and Wales some 80 dogs are stolen from their owners, causing huge distress to both the owners and the animals. During this Pet Theft Awareness Week, may we have a debate on what is a growing and nasty problem?

Salisbury Incident: Further Update (14 Mar 2018)

Gareth Johnson: Nobody should be surprised that Russia has denied responsibility for the attacks in Salisbury. It is a country that has denied taking part in the Olympics doping scandal and in the rigging of elections. Worst of all, it has denied any involvement in the killing of Alexander Litvinenko. Given that, will the Prime Minister please assure the House that Russia will be treated according to its...

Victims of Crime: Rights — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (13 Mar 2018)

Gareth Johnson: The hon. Gentleman is highlighting important issues to do with the CPS and the rights of victims. Does he agree that one thing that undermines victims of crime is the Crown’s inability to appeal against sentences that are simply too lenient? That can happen only in a very few cases at the moment, and victims of crime feel powerless under the current system to ensure that the...

Uk Relations: Saudi Arabia (7 Mar 2018)

Gareth Johnson: The Crown Prince has been absolutely clear that he wants to build a moderate, modern future for Saudi Arabia. The whole House would want to see him achieve that. Does the Minister agree that the best way to bring that about is to work with him and to assist him, not build diplomatic walls between our two countries?
