Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Sports-related Tourism (21 Jun 2018)

Toby Perkins: For the entire country to benefit from sports-related tourism, it is important that there is a fair distribution of cricket, for example. Half of all the test matches between 2019 and 2023 will be in London, meaning that Trent Bridge will not get an Ashes test in either of the next two series. Will the Minister sit down with the England and Wales Cricket Board, tell it to go back to the...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: High Street Businesses (12 Jun 2018)

Toby Perkins: One of the areas on the high street that is particularly struggling is that of our important pubs. I would be interested to hear the Minister’s view on the extent to which pub-owning businesses and tenants enjoy confidence in the Pubs Code Adjudicator—and if they do not, what steps the Government are taking to put that right.

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

Toby Perkins: The Warrior Capability Sustainment Programme is incredibly important for our Army’s capability and for the UK defence industry, so when will we finally get to the production contract stage?

Royal Assent: NHS Outsourcing and Privatisation (23 May 2018)

Toby Perkins: Chesterfield Royal Hospital is consulting on setting up a subsidiary company. Does it not seem madness that, in order to save £3 million that the hospital is paying the Government, it is creating this new organisation, which is being funded by the Government anyway? It is the emperor’s new clothes. The money is going round in circles without doing any good.

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (16 May 2018)

Toby Perkins: One of the most shocking elements of the whole Carillion fiasco was the fact that the Cabinet Office saw a letter from Carillion’s accountants in mid-December with a proposal that would have allowed £360 million extra to be put back into the public purse. Will the Minister explain what he did when he saw that recommendation, and why the money was not put back into public purse?

Gaza Border Violence (15 May 2018)

Toby Perkins: It is grotesque that the Americans are planning to block the independent investigation, but do we not already know that many of the people killed and injured yesterday posed no threat to the Israeli regime? Does the Minister not recognise that, by failing to come to the Dispatch Box and unequivocally condemn the murder of Palestinian citizens that we saw yesterday, he is actually...

Secure Tenancies (Victims of Domestic Abuse) Bill: Duty to review cooperation between England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland (8 May 2018)

Toby Perkins: I would like to start where the right hon. Member for Basingstoke (Mrs Miller) finished. I agree entirely about the importance of this Bill, which the Minister herself described as being so important. It behoves all of us to consider why somebody who has been through the appalling domestic violence that many of our constituents have experienced would then be willing potentially to stay in...

Secure Tenancies (Victims of Domestic Abuse) Bill: Duty to review cooperation between England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland (8 May 2018)

Toby Perkins: I welcome the audit, but the question is what happens afterwards. I would like this to be a statutory service with a responsibility on local authorities to provide it. Will there be any move by the Government towards that? Having the information is one thing, but the next thing is what the Government do with it. On amendment 2, my hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Yardley (Jess...

Secure Tenancies (Victims of Domestic Abuse) Bill: Duty to review cooperation between England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland (8 May 2018)

Toby Perkins: I am listening carefully to what the Minister is saying. It very much stands at odds with the Conservative party policy announced in the run-up to the general election, when it was going to impose right to buy on housing associations. How is it that the Conservative party is so happy to remove thousands of houses from the social rental sector when it comes to right to buy, but when it comes...

Secure Tenancies (Victims of Domestic Abuse) Bill: Duty to review cooperation between England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland (8 May 2018)

Toby Perkins: I welcome the reassurance that the Minister has just given us, but the fact is that different local authorities understand the current legislation and their responsibilities to people fleeing domestic violence in different ways, so what possible harm would it do to include amendment 1 so that there would be no cause for any misunderstanding in future?

Secure Tenancies (Victims of Domestic Abuse) Bill: Duty to review cooperation between England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland (8 May 2018)

Toby Perkins: I agree entirely with what my hon. Friend is saying about the postcode lottery. When I raised that on Second Reading, the Minister said that I was complaining about an issue that did not exist, but it has become clear from subsequent meetings with Women’s Aid that different local authorities are applying very different interpretations of the rights in terms of housing allocations and...

Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [Lords]: Scottish Limited Partnerships: UK bank account requirement (1 May 2018)

Toby Perkins: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I made the hon. and learned Member for Torridge and West Devon (Mr Cox) aware, as is the convention, that I intended to raise a point of order about the fact that he spoke very passionately in favour of the Cayman Islands when he has clearly, according to his own entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests, done a lot of work on their behalf....

Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [Lords]: Periodic reports on exercise of power to make regulations under section 1 (1 May 2018)

Toby Perkins: My right hon. Friend is absolutely right to pay tribute to Members from all parties, including the Conservative Members who bravely supported her even when the Government attempted to buy them off. On behalf of many Members from different parties, may I say how grateful we are for the tenacity that she has shown and the excellence with which she has pursued this campaign? It shows Parliament...

Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [Lords]: Periodic reports on exercise of power to make regulations under section 1 (1 May 2018)

Toby Perkins: The Minister will not be surprised to know that I fully support the Government in bringing this change forward, as I am sure all Labour Members do given that we have been asking for it for some time. On the subject of sanctions, will the Government publish the names of those who have been sanctioned under the Bill, notwithstanding what subsection (2) of new clause 3 says about not risking...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Agri-tech Sector (1 May 2018)

Toby Perkins: The agri-tech sector has tremendous potential in this country, but if we are to get all the manufacturing jobs out of it, as well as the innovation, we need to do something about the most expensive corporate property tax in the entire EU. Will the Minister tell us whether the Government are still sticking to their manifesto commitment to have a wholesale review of the business rates system,...

Petition - Fibromyalgia as a Disability (25 Apr 2018)

Toby Perkins: I rise to present a petition relating to the recognition of fibromyalgia as a disability, the need for greater research into the causes and treatment of fibromyalgia, and the need for greater awareness of fibromyalgia. The petition was started by my constituents Adrienne and Leann Lakin and has been signed by 1,379 people from across the United Kingdom. The petition should be seen alongside...

School Funding (25 Apr 2018)

Toby Perkins: It is true that we are being told by schools that there is a real-terms cut. Was my hon. Friend as alarmed as I was by the fact that, even in the Chamber, the Secretary of State was unwilling to offer the guarantee that no school would lose money?

School Funding (25 Apr 2018)

Toby Perkins: I want to help the Secretary of State make good on his promise. He made a commitment that no school will see a cut in funding. What is the strength of that guarantee? If it turns out that a school has had a reduction in funding, will he consider it a resignation matter?

School Funding (25 Apr 2018)

Toby Perkins: If what he said—

School Funding (25 Apr 2018)

Toby Perkins: I am grateful to the Secretary of State for asking the question. Is he guaranteeing that no school will lose money? Is that his commitment? If there is no such commitment, he should say so, and if there is, he should not hide behind councils.
