Opposition Day: Backbench Business — [Unallotted half day] — Metal Theft (7 Feb 2012)

Chris Kelly: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention. There is certainly a loss to the Exchequer and one often finds that the vehicles are uninsured and have no MOT. There is often criminality at all levels in this area. I have a number of scrap yards in my constituency and there are many in the Dudley borough, the majority of which are run by law-abiding people who would not dream of laundering...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: PFI Debt (NHS Hospitals) (21 Feb 2012)

Chris Kelly: I thank my right hon. Friend for that answer. Russells Hall hospital was expanded in 2003, but still has £1.8 billion of PFI debt attached to it—debt which will not be paid off until 2042. What steps is he taking to help reduce the PFI costs for hospitals such as mine that have not been completely crippled by Labour’s PFI and therefore do not qualify for central support, but none the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Burdens on Business (29 Feb 2012)

Chris Kelly: The UK Government are scrapping new regulations that would have cost businesses more than £350 million a year and are radically reforming the planning system in England.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Metal Theft (1 Mar 2012)

Chris Kelly: Does the Secretary of State share my view that scrap yards that knowingly facilitate this crime are just as responsible as those that actually commit the theft? In line with that, will she make sure that this important clampdown is pursued with vigour, as urged by the widely supported all-party parliamentary group on combating metal theft?

Amendment of the Law (26 Mar 2012)

Chris Kelly: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker, for calling me to speak in this important Budget debate. It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Coventry South (Mr Cunningham), a fellow west midlands Member. Before I begin my remarks, I wish to draw the House’s attention to my declaration in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests, as I am company director. I broadly welcome this radical,...

Chris Kelly: What support his Department provides for clean water and sanitation in developing countries.

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Clean Water and Sanitation (23 May 2012)

Chris Kelly: I welcome the Department’s commitment to doubling the provision of water and sanitation so that it reaches 60 million people, but will my right hon. Friend assure me that sufficient priority is now being given to sanitation? Too often in the past, priority has been given solely to the provision of clean water.

Bilateral Trade (Israel) (13 Jun 2012)

Chris Kelly: On that very point, will my hon. Friend join me in welcoming Israeli high-tech firms partnering with British manufacturers? For example, Eurocraft Enclosures in my constituency of Dudley South has partnered with ECI Telecom to provide the technological internals that are encased in high-quality British engineering. That is providing jobs in my constituency. Does he agree that that is an...

Petitions: Independent Pharmacy Provision (Brierley Hill, Dudley) (16 Jul 2012)

Chris Kelly: It is my pleasure to present this petition when the Minister of State, Department of Health, my right hon. Friend the Member for Chelmsford (Mr Burns), is on the Front Bench.

Mr Lad is concerned about the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: NHS Performance (17 Jul 2012)

Chris Kelly: I thank my right hon. Friend for that answer. Will he confirm that the numbers of people waiting over 18 weeks, over 26 weeks and over 52 weeks for treatment are now at their lowest-ever levels—lower than when Labour was in office? Will he also confirm that that gives the lie to Labour’s claims that waiting lists are increasing?

Public Bill Committee: Scrap Metal Dealers Bill: Clause 3 - Issue of licence (11 Sep 2012)

Chris Kelly: Senior officers often move from one local authority to the neighbouring authority, or to one nearby. The hon. Member for Walsall North is here; I know that officers from my local authority in Dudley have worked for Walsall and vice versa. These officers also take their expertise with them. It would be a good idea for local authorities to talk to each other at a senior level and exchange...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Sep 2012)

Chris Kelly: Does my right hon. Friend agree with Kevin O’Toole, the managing director of Eurocraft Enclosures Ltd in Dudley, who contacted me about the Government’s plans to sweep away unnecessary health and safety red tape to say: “At last years and years of regulation are being replaced by a simple concept called common sense”? Is it not common sense to remove the headache of inspections for...

Public Bill Committee: Scrap Metal Dealers bill: Clause 18 - “Carrying on business as a scrap metal dealer” and “scrap metal” (12 Sep 2012)

Chris Kelly: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Benton. The Minister began his remarks on the amendments to clause 18 by saying that the Home Office had rightly consulted the British Metals Recycling Association. I am pleased that the Home Office has done that, but there was early resistance from some directors and members of the BMRA to the need for legislation at all. I am glad that...
