Yemen (11 Sep 2018)

Graham Jones: Will the Minister give way?

Yemen (11 Sep 2018)

Graham Jones: The Minister is giving a powerful speech and a good explanation of the situation on the ground and the political judgment the Government are making. Does he share my grave concern that what we saw with ISIS is now happening in Yemen, with the use of human shields, politicised as part of the conflict? We are seeing rockets not just fired at the KSA, but fired from urban areas where there are...

Yemen (11 Sep 2018)

Graham Jones: What has changed about UN resolution 2216, which has been ratified? It calls for a ceasefire. What has changed today about our calling for a ceasefire? It calls for the Houthis to relinquish all the power they have taken, because they have taken it illegally, and it calls for an embargo on all arms going into Yemen. What has changed today about UN resolution 2216?

Yemen (11 Sep 2018)

Graham Jones: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Yemen (11 Sep 2018)

Graham Jones: The hon. Gentleman is making a very powerful speech about aid, and the importance of peace and supporting the Yemeni people. He raises a point about them wanting to take back control of their country. The 25,000 Yemeni people backed by the Government on the outskirts of Hodeidah do not want war. They want peace and a return to civic democracy with human rights, as opposed to oppression by the...

Graham Jones: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Yemen (11 Sep 2018)

Graham Jones: The hon. Lady raises aid matters. Was she not appalled, as I was, by the Houthi assault on an aid convoy and aid workers in the last month? Does she not think that when the Houthis demand $300,000 dollars for every ship that lands at Hodeidah, that is taking food out of the mouths of the poorest and simply propping up high-value cars and swimming pools in this war economy?

Yemen (11 Sep 2018)

Graham Jones: Does the hon. Lady, like me, congratulate the forces of the United Arab Emirates, particularly the special forces, who helped the aid convoys get into some of these areas, and paid a huge price for trying to deliver this aid, with over 110 UAE soldiers having lost their lives trying to fight for freedom in Yemen and support the Yemeni people?

Yemen (11 Sep 2018)

Graham Jones: We all want peace, but there is a pattern that seems to be a roadblock to peace. The Geneva talks have collapsed twice because the Houthis refused to turn up and leave Sana’a. The Kuwait peace talks collapsed because the Houthis refused to come to the peace table. When the outgoing special envoy to Yemen, Ismail Ahmed, had a peace deal on the table in January, he told the UN that the...

Yemen (11 Sep 2018)

Graham Jones: On the list of actors on this particular stage, would the hon. Gentleman also include Hezbollah? It sends its commanders and troops into the country on fast boats from that Iranian ship parked in the Gulf. To follow up on the question asked by my friend from the Defence Committee, the right hon. Member for Rayleigh and Wickford (Mr Francois), part of the problem we face is that the Iranians...

Yemen (11 Sep 2018)

Graham Jones: Will my right hon. Friend explain how she would resolve the issue of the United Arab Emirates, which by and large buys American, Chinese and French equipment and is operating independently on the southern battlefields within the internal border of Yemen? The United Arab Emirates largely has nothing to do with the Saudi Arabians on those battlefronts. How will the United Kingdom influence what...

Yemen (11 Sep 2018)

Graham Jones: Will my right hon. Friend give way?

Yemen (11 Sep 2018)

Graham Jones: Will my right hon. Friend give way?

Points of Order (17 Jul 2018)

Graham Jones: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. On your advice about a deferred Division, is there any clarity on when the result would be announced?

Combat Air Strategy (17 Jul 2018)

Graham Jones: I welcome the combat air strategy, but does the Secretary of State agree with my constituent Andrew Moxham, who wrote to me yesterday to ask how on earth the UK alone can afford this project. This can only be delivered as part of a collaboration—preferably a European collaboration, as with the Typhoon—and it will also require export orders. Britain alone cannot afford this project.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Cyber-attacks (9 Jul 2018)

Graham Jones: Two weeks ago, a large Hyndburn company had 4,000 cyber-attacks from Russia in one day. What are the Government doing to protect UK companies?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Topical Questions (9 Jul 2018)

Graham Jones: If he will make a statement on his departmental responsibilities.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Topical Questions (9 Jul 2018)

Graham Jones: I welcome the intervention, as I know the Secretary of State does, of the British Army in tackling the illegal wildlife trade in places such as Kenya, Tanzania, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda and Ethiopia. This is a global problem, so what answers—multinational answers—do this Government have for the global problem of the illegal wildlife trade and the protection of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: M65 Extension (5 Jul 2018)

Graham Jones: What assessment he has made of the potential merits of extending the M65 from Colne to Keighley.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: M65 Extension (5 Jul 2018)

Graham Jones: The Secretary of State has invested in the idea of a rail link between Liverpool and Hull, connecting the east and west through the central low Pennines. Do the Government accept that a road link would be complementary? It would go through deprived communities and provide a huge economic uplift. Do the Government recognise that this is the great northern powerhouse project?
