The Rohingya and the Myanmar Government (17 Oct 2017)

Gavin Shuker: During Foreign and Commonwealth Office questions earlier, I asked the Minister for Asia and the Pacific—a good Minister—to comment on the textbook definition of ethnic cleansing. I believe that he went further than the UK Government have gone before in saying that the situation was moving towards that. Does my hon. Friend agree that for the UK to have legitimacy on this topic, we...

Gavin Shuker: The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights described what is happening in Myanmar as “a textbook example of ethnic cleansing”. I happen to agree with him. Does the Minister?

Iran: Vauxhall (Redundancies) (16 Oct 2017)

Gavin Shuker: Last week it was Monarch, headquartered in my constituency. This week it is Vauxhall, headquartered in my constituency. Yet the Minister did not once use the work “Brexit” during her statement. Does she believe that these redundancies are being caused primarily by a lack of consumer confidence stemming from the Government’s chaotic approach to Brexit negotiations, or by a...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Railways: Luton Airport (12 Sep 2017)

Gavin Shuker: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, with reference to the consultation document on East Midlands rail franchise, published in July 2017, whether his Department has considered the effect on the local economy of an increase in the number of fast trains from London to London Luton Airport to four an hour.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (12 Sep 2017)

Gavin Shuker: Can the Secretary of State explain why his challenge fund is directed at sectors that are dominated by an over-representation of men, while many of the professions in which females are over-represented face low investment, low skills, low pay and low productivity?

Gavin Shuker: What assessment she has made of the effect on children's nutrition of the absence of free primary school meals in the school holidays.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Child Nutrition (11 Sep 2017)

Gavin Shuker: May I commend to the Secretary of State the private Member’s Bill tabled by my right hon. Friend the Member for Birkenhead (Frank Field), which will tackle the problem properly by ensuring that children who receive free school meals in term time also receive nutritious meals outside term time? If she feels that she cannot offer Government support for the Bill, may I also commend to her...

Chris Gibb Report: Improvements to Southern Railway (4 Jul 2017)

Gavin Shuker: I appear to have a very good hit rate with you so far, Madam Deputy Speaker. You have called me two days in a row. I have seen great men and women stand at the Dispatch Box and take responsibility for things that were often beyond their control but within their Department’s remit. If we are honest, today’s debate has proceeded along some well-worn tramlines. Conservative Members...

Chris Gibb Report: Improvements to Southern Railway (4 Jul 2017)

Gavin Shuker: My hon. Friend pre-empts my idea. We should recognise Southern rail as a critical piece of infrastructure for London, the south-east and the whole United Kingdom and treat it as such. The Government should take custody and oversee Southern rail. Secondly, the £6 billion investment in the Thameslink programme will bring very real benefits, but unfortunately it has been bolted on to a...

Business of the House (Select Committees): Select Committees (4 Jul 2017)

Gavin Shuker: I commend the Government for tabling motion 4. It is right for them to implement the commitment that they made during the last Parliament to put the Women and Equalities Committee on a statutory basis in our Standing Orders, and it is right for them to do so on this occasion. I was a member of the Women and Equalities Committee in the last Parliament, under the brilliant chairmanship of the...

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill (3 Jul 2017)

Gavin Shuker: I am extremely grateful, Madam Deputy Speaker, for the opportunity to speak in this debate. May I begin by commending the new hon. Member for Redditch (Rachel Maclean) on an erudite and passionate speech about the place that she represents? I am certain that if she finds a way to bring that passion to every issue that we debate in the House, while keeping in mind the constituents about whom...

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill (3 Jul 2017)

Gavin Shuker: My hon. Friend pre-empts my point; we are working from the same page. As aviation is not covered by WTO rules, it would be quite conventional to have a separate stand-alone air services agreement with the European Union. It is my view that we should try to bring that about now before the meat of the major deal to come, not least because aviation is governed in a different way, but also...

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill (3 Jul 2017)

Gavin Shuker: The Minister looks delighted to give way on that specific point; I am sure he will want to say more about it. First, a correction—Luton airport is in the constituency of Luton South. My hon. Friend the Member for Luton North (Kelvin Hopkins) and I have many a competitive conversation about it. On the £2.50 levy, I understand that there is a significant surplus in the fund now. Is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Rough Sleeping (24 Apr 2017)

Gavin Shuker: Since joining the House in 2010, I have seen with my own eyes the incredible increase in the number of people sleeping rough on our streets. I have seen it in my constituency and in places that I have visited around the country, and, indeed, I see it on the doorsteps of Westminster itself when we arrive and leave for votes. Can the Secretary of State tell me what changed in 2010?
