Upcoming Business – Commons: Main Chamber (21 Dec 2017)

Business questions to the Leader of the House – Andrea Leadsom. Business Statement

Business of the House (14 Dec 2017)

Andrea Leadsom: The business for the week commencing 18 December will be as follows: Monday 18 December—Consideration in Committee of the Finance Bill (day 1). Tuesday 19 December—Continuation of consideration in Committee of the Finance Bill (day 2), followed by a motion to approve a statutory instrument relating to terrorism, followed by a motion to approve European documents relating to the...

Business of the House (14 Dec 2017)

Andrea Leadsom: I share in the hon. Lady’s great tribute to those who suffered so much in the Grenfell tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with them today—and all the time. The Government have been committed, all the way through this last terrible six months for the survivors and the families, to ensuring that their needs will be taken care of, and we remain absolutely committed to that. I join...

Business of the House (14 Dec 2017)

Andrea Leadsom: I entirely share my hon. Friend’s desire for a further review of the experiences of Grenfell survivors six months from today. As for his point about deportations, I am not aware of the specific cases that he raised, but I am sure that Foreign Office Ministers will be happy to discuss them with him.

Business of the House (14 Dec 2017)

Andrea Leadsom: The hon. Gentleman is obviously on good form this morning, although I think he made a bit of a slip-up in calling my colleagues hon. Gentlemen. I am not sure that they are all hon. Gentlemen; I think that there may be an hon. Lady or two among them. I take them extremely seriously, because I think they make an enormous contribution to their constituencies in Scotland. They regularly attend...

Business of the House (14 Dec 2017)

Andrea Leadsom: My right hon. Friend will no doubt want to take part in the debate on restoration and renewal, but it is vital to focus on the key issues. First, we must protect this palace for future generations. It is a world heritage site and receives more than 1 million visitors a year. Its future is paramount, but so too is keeping in mind the cost to taxpayers, and we must focus on the best value for...

Business of the House (14 Dec 2017)

Andrea Leadsom: I am always happy to address representations from the hon. Gentleman, and I will look into the points he has raised.

Business of the House (14 Dec 2017)

Andrea Leadsom: I am sorry to hear of those potential job losses, and my hon. Friend is right to support his constituents in this way. The Government regularly meet General Electric to discuss its UK business, and as my hon. Friend will know, in November it announced plans for a global restructuring. A consultation is under way on the redundancies, and the exact timescale is yet to be announced. The...

Business of the House (14 Dec 2017)

Andrea Leadsom: The hon. Lady is absolutely right to raise this subject. It is extremely disturbing to see anyone sleeping rough in our country. The Government are investing a significant sum to eliminate rough sleeping altogether by 2027 and to halve it by 2022. In my own area, the Hope Centre in Northampton, of which my husband is vice-chairman, is doing excellent work, as are so many homelessness...

Andrea Leadsom: rose—

Business of the House (14 Dec 2017)

Andrea Leadsom: Thank you, Mr Speaker. Again, I completely share this concern about homelessness and rough sleeping. It is a huge worry across the House, and I encourage all hon. Members to consider combining to hold a Back-Bench debate on the subject. We have implemented the Homelessness Reduction Act 2017, which was introduced by my hon. Friend the Member for Harrow East (Bob Blackman), and we have...

Business of the House (14 Dec 2017)

Andrea Leadsom: The hon. Gentleman raises a very interesting point, which I would be happy to look into on his behalf.

Business of the House (14 Dec 2017)

Andrea Leadsom: My hon. Friend and I share a deep interest in the plight of some of those in their earliest years and the importance of secure early attachment for the mental and emotional wellbeing of children right the way through their lives. I am always happy to support him in his efforts to secure debates in the House on that subject.

Business of the House (14 Dec 2017)

Andrea Leadsom: The Government have shown huge commitment to improving mental health, and many more people are accessing mental health services than ever before. However, I share his concern about his specific points and encourage him to attend Health questions next Tuesday, where he will have the opportunity to question Ministers directly.

Business of the House (14 Dec 2017)

Andrea Leadsom: I totally agree with my hon. Friend. SMEs are the lifeblood of our economy, and they absolutely deserve our praise and support. I congratulate Taunton chamber of commerce on putting in place some incredibly smart measures to support local businesses. Our industrial strategy will support businesses. The retail sector, for example, will benefit from business rates relief, the cutting of...

Business of the House (14 Dec 2017)

Andrea Leadsom: As so often, the hon. Gentleman raises a serious constituency issue, and I recommend that he seek an Adjournment debate to address the matter directly with Ministers.

Business of the House (14 Dec 2017)

Andrea Leadsom: I am pleased to join my hon. Friend in welcoming the latest employment figures and in congratulating Uckfield chamber of commerce on its work to support businesses. There are now 325,000 more people in work than at this time last year, and youth unemployment is down 416,000 since 2010. I am sure that the whole House will welcome those figures.

Business of the House (14 Dec 2017)

Andrea Leadsom: The hon. Gentleman will be aware that, as I have just announced, day eight of consideration of the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill will happen next week, so he might want to raise that point then.

Business of the House (14 Dec 2017)

Andrea Leadsom: I will look closely at my hon. Friend’s suggestion.
