Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Youth Unemployment (28 Nov 2017)

James Morris: What progress is being made on reducing youth unemployment.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Youth Unemployment (28 Nov 2017)

James Morris: The Government have made significant progress in reducing youth unemployment, but in part of the area that I represent in the black country too many young people are emerging from education with a lack of basic skills, which is holding the region back. Does my right hon. Friend agree that we need to continue to invest in skills, particularly for those young people who lack basic skills, so...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Yemen (21 Nov 2017)

James Morris: The conflict in Yemen is clearly a proxy war between Saudi Arabia and Iran for achieving regional hegemony. Does the Minister agree that the UK should use all its diplomatic leverage with its allies and players in the region to de-escalate the conflict and get a genuine peace process under way in Yemen?

Mental Health Education in Schools — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (6 Nov 2017)

James Morris: It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Brady. I congratulate the hon. Member for Newcastle upon Tyne North (Catherine McKinnell) on putting the case so cogently for the importance of education about mental health in schools. In preparation for the debate, I reflected on the distance we have come and the sense that we still have a long way to go on what I would call...

Mental Health Education in Schools — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (6 Nov 2017)

James Morris: I thank the hon. Lady for her intervention. The simple answer to her question is yes. [Phil Wilson in the Chair] The Government are, as I understand it, fully committed to that additional investment over the five years of this Parliament. The truth is that a lot of progress has been made under the current Government in terms of further investment in child and adolescent mental health...

Mental Health Education in Schools — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (6 Nov 2017)

James Morris: I definitely agree with my right hon. Friend on that. As I said, the family is the crucible. The issue is often very complex, and the relationship between the family and the school is a critical part of what we are discussing because, again, families can be a place where therapy is very effective, and can be a very effective way of helping the child and making them resilient, so I very much...

Mental Health Education in Schools — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (6 Nov 2017)

James Morris: I thank my right hon. Friend for that intervention. I totally agree: clearly, it will not be possible to involve the family in all cases. I have seen examples in my constituency, particularly in the primary school environment, in which headteachers and teachers have taken really interesting and creative decisions to replicate the family environment for children who have not been brought up in...

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (2 Nov 2017)

James Morris: Does the Secretary of State agree that the regions, particularly the Black country, which I represent, need a voice in the negotiations, so that the voice of business in the Black country can be firmly put on the agenda in terms of the priorities of a growing manufacturing area seeing a great revival in employment and growth?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Mayors: Economic Growth (30 Oct 2017)

James Morris: What discussions he has had with newly elected mayors on delivering economic growth.

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Mayors: Economic Growth (30 Oct 2017)

James Morris: Does the Minister agree that one of the vital roles to be played by elected Mayors, such as Andy Street in the west midlands, is to focus on skills—particularly in areas such as the Black country, where we have a lot of young people without basic skills—to make sure that young people can take the opportunities and the jobs that are out there and drive economic growth?

Social Care (25 Oct 2017)

James Morris: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Leigh (Jo Platt). I think that there is a consensus in the House that social care is one of the biggest policy challenges we face and that we need to get it right not just for current elderly people, but, as pointed out by hon. Members on both sides of the House, for working-age adults with disabilities. In that respect, it is important to see...

NHS Pay (13 Sep 2017)

James Morris: I join other Members in congratulating the hon. Member for Portsmouth South (Stephen Morgan) on his maiden speech. I am sure that he will make many fine contributions to this House, and I look forward to debating with him in the months to come. I think we agree across the House that doctors, nurses and all NHS staff are fundamental to the foundation of the NHS, which the Secretary of State...

Counter-Daesh Update (13 Jul 2017)

James Morris: The liberation of Mosul is a significant moment in our battle against Daesh, but does the Secretary of State agree that the real victory will be the creation of a modern Iraqi state that is capable of governing itself for all the people of Iraq and of ensuring that it resists any infiltration by Daesh as we clear it out of Iraqi territory?

Supply and Appropriation (Main Estimates) Bill: Israel and Palestinian Talks (5 Jul 2017)

James Morris: Will the Minister give way?

Supply and Appropriation (Main Estimates) Bill: Israel and Palestinian Talks (5 Jul 2017)

James Morris: Historically, when a two-state solution has almost been reached, it has been on the basis of negotiations where there were no preconditions between either side. That has to be a fundamental principle. The Minister says he has been looking at this issue for 30 years. Having no preconditions leads to a potential two-state solution.

Prime Minister: Engagements (5 Jul 2017)

James Morris: In the last few days Iraqi security forces, assisted by coalition airstrikes, have made significant progress in eradicating ISIL fighters from Mosul. That is a significant step forward in the military conflict against ISIL in Iraq, but does the Prime Minister agree that the United Kingdom and the United States, in a broad international alliance, need to work with the Iraqi Government to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Mental Health Services (4 Jul 2017)

James Morris: I commend the Government for their work on mental health over the past few years, but when the Department of Health publishes its Green Paper, jointly with the Department for Education, may I urge the Minister to focus on the evidence of what works for young people and children, which is rigorous early intervention, often with enduring psychotherapeutic interventions. Can she reassure me that...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (21 Jun 2017)

James Morris: rose—

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (21 Jun 2017)

James Morris: My right hon. Friend knows that I have been a long-standing campaigner on improving mental health care in this country. The truth is that many people across our country today are not getting the care they need, including many children who, in very traumatised states, are spending too long in queues to get appropriate treatment. What is she going to do to convert the warm words of the...
