G7 (11 Jun 2018)

Graham Jones: The Prime Minister has referred to the empowerment of women and of girls in particular. Did she have an opportunity at the G7 to raise two specific issues: the hundreds of thousands of child prostitutes in India and the use of rape as a method of violence in places such as the Democratic Republic of the Congo?

Yemen (11 Jun 2018)

Graham Jones: It is fair to say that there are few Saudi forces on this battlefront and that it is largely an Emirati-run operation, with Emirati troops, but led by 25,000 Yemeni soldiers. The Houthis are currently laying mines at the airport, and they are escalating the conflict in Hodeidah. They have mined the port, which has significantly reduced the amount of aid that can get in, and if they destroy...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Equipment Plan 2017 to 2027 (11 Jun 2018)

Graham Jones: What recent assessment he has made of the affordability of his Department’s equipment plan 2017 to 2027.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Equipment Plan 2017 to 2027 (11 Jun 2018)

Graham Jones: The Public Accounts Committee said in a recent report: “The Equipment Plan for 2017 to 2027 is not realistic and the Department lacks cost control.” Does the Secretary of State share my deep concern about his Department’s equipment budget being in such an appalling state?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Topical Questions (11 Jun 2018)

Graham Jones: Did the Secretary of State write to the Prime Minister about further deployment of troops in Afghanistan?

Marks & Spencer (24 May 2018)

Graham Jones: Does the Minister—for whom I have the greatest respect—accept that small towns have been hardest hit by these and previous closures and that central and local government policy is partly responsible? In Accrington, for example, hundreds of jobs have been lost, either as a result of council redundancies or because the Government have relocated public services to bigger towns or...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (24 May 2018)

Graham Jones: When will the Government stand up for small towns in the shires of this country? While the cities get new trains and powers over bus services, the small towns in the heartlands, such as Lancashire, get nothing. This Government do not seem to care about small towns.

Accrington Victoria Walk-in Centre (23 May 2018)

Graham Jones: Does the Minister accept that the consultation had flaws, and will she look at that? Does she accept that replacing 88 hours in a walk-in centre with 18 and a half or 19 hours of extended GP opening hours is a reduction in GP access, which goes counter to what was said in the consultations run by me and the CCG?

Accrington Victoria Walk-in Centre (23 May 2018)

Graham Jones: I should like to raise the not-so-small matter of the closure of Accrington Victoria walk-in centre, a valuable community health asset and a huge support to those in and around my constituency. The people of the area have, with great affinity, taken to their local healthcare services over many decades, and in years gone by, through paying a penny a week, they have funded the local hospital....

Accrington Victoria Walk-in Centre (23 May 2018)

Graham Jones: The hon. Gentleman makes a valuable contribution. I have yet to meet anyone who filled in the CCG’s consultation, and I will return to the issue of guidelines on NHS consultations and listening to the people. I want to reflect on the CCG’s consultation. I have grave doubts over its credibility and reliability. To my mind, consulting just 658 invisible people with dubious questions...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Attendance Allowance: Eligibility Criteria (21 May 2018)

Graham Jones: What assessment she has made of the appropriateness of the eligibility criteria for attendance allowance.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Attendance Allowance: Eligibility Criteria (21 May 2018)

Graham Jones: Before Christmas, I raised with the Prime Minister the case of Mr Walker from Great Harwood, in my constituency. Mr Walker was a fit and able pensioner until, at the age of 69, he was run over by a drunk driver. He is now quadriplegic, paralysed from the neck down. He and his wife are struggling, and their Ford Fiesta is of no use whatsoever. He has been released from hospital, and he is not...

East Coast Main Line (16 May 2018)

Graham Jones: Is the Secretary of State attributing all the problems on the east coast main line over the last few years to the franchise holders and none of them to his Department and him?

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Charity Regulation (10 May 2018)

Graham Jones: What steps he is taking to increase public trust in charity regulation.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Charity Regulation (10 May 2018)

Graham Jones: There have been several scandals with charities in Haslingden and Hyndburn, and I think the public are deeply concerned that the charities legislation and the Charity Commission are failing in their duties. I personally do not think they are fit for purpose. Will the Minister meet me to discuss those matters and how we can make charities more trustworthy?

Petition - Proposed Closure of Accrington Victoria NHS Walk-in Centre (2 May 2018)

Graham Jones: Accrington Victoria NHS walk-in centre, which has had 42,000 patient visits in the last 12 months and which offers 88 hours per week of GP service, is being replaced by an out-of-hours GP service, with just 19 hours available. When the walk-in centre closes, many people will simply go to the A&E at Royal Blackburn—one of the busiest A&Es in the country. That seems ridiculous,...

Yemen (24 Apr 2018)

Graham Jones: I am grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Liverpool, West Derby (Stephen Twigg) for asking this urgent question. I think we all agree that what happened in Hajjah was absolutely shocking. It is not a first, and such killings continue in a war that has seen a lot of individuals killed. There needs to be a clear process of accountability; otherwise, the killing will simply continue. I...

Privatisation of NHS Services — [Sir Graham Brady in the Chair] (23 Apr 2018)

Graham Jones: I hope the hon. Gentleman takes up the opportunity to visit Ealing Hospital. He argues that this is not the USA, but that is not the point being made. Of course the current NHS is not the US healthcare model. Does he accept that we are not privatising purchasers with insurance policies, as in America, but that what is happening in the United Kingdom is the fragmentation and privatisation of...

Privatisation of NHS Services — [Sir Graham Brady in the Chair] (23 Apr 2018)

Graham Jones: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Graham. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Hartlepool (Mike Hill) for introducing the petition and the petitioners for instigating a very worthwhile debate. I will speak briefly, because I know that many Members want to speak, about fragmentation, accountability, privatisation, and how the NHS in Lancashire is going backwards. We...

Privatisation of NHS Services — [Sir Graham Brady in the Chair] (23 Apr 2018)

Graham Jones: I think the public are primarily concerned not with better value for money but with better healthcare, and they are not getting it.
