Business without Debate — Sittings of the House: Public Disorder (11 Aug 2011)

Jake Berry: Unlike so many other subjects that the House debates, the aberration of these events link north and south. In my constituency, in Bacup, there was a riot by disaffected young people. Does my right hon. Friend agree with me that it is time for the police to take off the kid gloves, to use the full force of the law and, where possible, to prosecute and imprison those who have engaged in such...

Vat: Economic Growth (6 Sep 2011)

Jake Berry: Given how badly prepared the UK economy was for the financial crisis, does the Minister think that it was delusional to believe that its effects would be over in six months?

European Union Fiscal Union — [Annette Brooke in the Chair] (14 Sep 2011)

Jake Berry: Will my hon. Friend concede that the system was set up to fail by the fiddling of figures when it was established?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (15 Sep 2011)

Jake Berry: The extension of high-speed rail to Manchester will bring huge benefits to my constituents, both in terms of jobs and growth. Will the Minister reassure the House that this line will not stop at Birmingham but will come to Leeds and Manchester, and additionally will he confirm that if we are to have a proper integrated transport plan, we should look at a rail link between Rossendale and...

Business of the House (15 Sep 2011)

Jake Berry: Will the Leader of the House grant a debate on the independence of British newspapers? Yesterday while perusing his copy of the Morning Star, he may have read, beneath the headline “Could You Be Any More Wet”, the TUC’s reaction to the Leader of the Opposition described as “heckling, derisive laughter” and “deflation”. Given that dramatic about-turn, may we have a debate on...

Written Answers — Women and Equalities: Flexible Working (15 Sep 2011)

Jake Berry: To ask the Minister for Women and Equalities what steps she plans to take to improve arrangements for flexible working.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Eurozone (10 Oct 2011)

Jake Berry: International media, particularly in the USA, are beginning to say that it is a matter of when, not if, Greece defaults on her sovereign debt and leaves the euro. If “I told you so” is not the basis of a good economic policy, what credible and mature plans do we have to deal with the Greek default?

Opposition Day — (Un-allotted Day): Jobs and Growth (12 Oct 2011)

Jake Berry: I am delighted to see that the reshuffle of the shadow Cabinet has had a real effect on its sense of humour. Government Members are of course used to the fake outrage all the time, but the terms of the motion suggest that the Opposition seem to have discovered irony. I will not support the motion, because it demonstrates the Opposition’s fundamental failure to have any credible economic...

Opposition Day — (Un-allotted Day): Jobs and Growth (12 Oct 2011)

Jake Berry: I never said it was a fake Ponzi scheme, I said it was a real Ponzi scheme. That is the basis of the Opposition’s entire policy. The markets believe in our plan and want us to stick to plan A: actually, so does every hard-working family in my constituency. They are struggling with personal loans and do not want interest rates to go up. Like so many of us, they are struggling with mortgages...

Opposition Day — (Un-allotted Day): Jobs and Growth (12 Oct 2011)

Jake Berry: I do, and for all addicts the hardest thing to do is admit that they have a problem. When this Government came to power in May 2010, we admitted that we had a problem with debt. Even if we fall off the wagon temporarily, we know we have that problem and so we get straight back on it. The Labour party has not even admitted it—it thinks it gave us a golden economic inheritance.

Opposition Day — (Un-allotted Day): Jobs and Growth (12 Oct 2011)

Jake Berry: I am sure that the hon. Gentleman will provide me with the figures—

Opposition Day — (Un-allotted Day): Jobs and Growth (12 Oct 2011)

Jake Berry: I do know. However, I can guarantee my constituents one thing, and one thing only: unemployment has not gone up by as much as it would have done if we had had Labour’s Ponzi scheme.

Opposition Day — (Un-allotted Day): Jobs and Growth (12 Oct 2011)

Jake Berry: I am sorry, but I will not give way again because I am running out of time and I have many points to make. Let us look at the facts. Back in May 2010, when we came to power, we had 0.1% less debt than Greece as a proportion of GDP. Labour Members can criticise us and say that making cuts damages growth, but let us look at their alternative. Their alternative—too little, too late—would...

Opposition Day — (Un-allotted Day): Jobs and Growth (12 Oct 2011)

Jake Berry: I am sorry, but I will not give way. I want to make progress. The Labour party opposes the Government’s public spending cuts, but its alternative—the too little, too late alternative—would mean that our economy, like Greece’s, would shrink by 5% this year, and that mortgage rates would rocket. One of the things that Government Members are most proud of is our desire and aspiration to...

Opposition Day — (Un-allotted Day): Jobs and Growth (12 Oct 2011)

Jake Berry: Sorry, I will not. How ironic it is that the Opposition motion calls for a cut in national insurance. That is too little, too late, and business in my constituency knows that the Labour party is not the solution but, in fact, the problem.

Opposition Day — (Un-allotted Day): Jobs and Growth (12 Oct 2011)

Jake Berry: Sorry, but I will not. Looking at today’s job figures, including the increase in unemployment in my constituency—

Opposition Day — (Un-allotted Day): Jobs and Growth (12 Oct 2011)

Jake Berry: The Opposition Front Bencher says from a sedentary position that the increase is 29.2%. I have real sympathy for those experiencing the increase in unemployment. People are facing an unbelievably tough time. These are uncertain times for all of us. However, if we are to have a successful economy in Rossendale and Darwen, and if we are to get people back into work, we must keep low borrowing...

Backbench Business — [34th Allotted Day]: National Referendum on the European Union (24 Oct 2011)

Jake Berry: It is a privilege to follow the hon. Member for Vauxhall (Kate Hoey). I congratulate the Backbench Business Committee, and particularly my hon. Friend and neighbour the Member for Bury North (Mr Nuttall), who is not in his place, on securing this debate. It is important, and the strength of support behind the online petition shows that people in this country care about it. I congratulate...

Backbench Business — [34th Allotted Day]: National Referendum on the European Union (24 Oct 2011)

Jake Berry: I am aware of that polling, and that is why I do not support today’s motion.

Backbench Business — [34th Allotted Day]: National Referendum on the European Union (24 Oct 2011)

Jake Berry: In my home town of Liverpool people would be burned for witchcraft for signing anything on the internet. The general petition had 100,000 signatures. I am constantly told that the EU is not a doorstep issue, but when one scrapes the surface and goes out and talks to people, as I did in my constituency last weekend, one finds immense anger. People in my area regard the EU as remote,...
