Amendment of the Law (19 Mar 2015)

As a fellow Member whose constituency is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Mar 2015)

Chris Kelly: When this Government took office, metal theft was rife, especially in the black country. This Government listened to the all-party group on combating metal theft, banned cash payments, and passed the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013. Once my right hon. Friend has been returned for another term as Prime Minister, what more will he do to ensure that instances of this abhorrent crime reduce still...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: European Council (27 Oct 2014)

Chris Kelly: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the cost of Labour in this context since 2005 has been a reduction in our rebate of nearly £10.5 billion and that a further cost of Labour would be its Front Benchers caving in and paying this enormous sum if they were in government, something to which my constituents in Dudley South say no?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (3 Sep 2014)

Chris Kelly: Jihadi crimes committed in the name of the Islamic State are completely incompatible with the British way of life, so I welcome the plans announced by my right hon.

Amendment of the Law (20 Mar 2014)

Chris Kelly: I welcome the Budget statement. It is a Budget that will help us build a resilient economy and is part of the Government’s long-term economic plan to put this country back on the path to sustained growth, a path that was deviated from by the Labour party with the debt-fuelled politics of the final decade of its time in office. I commend my right hon. Friend the Chancellor who, since coming...

Amendment of the Law (20 Mar 2014)

Chris Kelly: The Secretary of State is talking about energy-intensive industry and there is still a great deal of that in my constituency.

We need to keep those industries here in the UK, and yesterday’s Budget helps us to achieve that. [Interruption.]

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Consumer Rights Bill (28 Jan 2014)

Chris Kelly: I support the Bill, because it must be right to simplify a complex area of law by reducing eight pieces of legislation to one consumer Bill that is easy to understand. I wish to concentrate particularly on two matters: the help that the Bill contains for digital consumers, who are a fast-growing part of the economy, and the reforms to trading standards, which will support small businesses as...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Consumer Rights Bill (28 Jan 2014)

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (28 Jan 2014)

Chris Kelly: Last week, we saw the sharpest quarterly increase in the number of people in work since records began. Does my right hon.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (27 Nov 2013)

Chris Kelly: The Prime Minister’s plans to restrict benefits to immigrants are wise and welcome. What lessons has my right hon. Friend learned from the failures of the last Labour Government who, despite claiming that just 13,000 Polish immigrants would arrive in the UK, deliberately allowed more than 1 million to come into our country?
