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

Jake Berry: It is the Government’s policy. We heard the Prime Minister give commitments today on the referendum lock and future treaty negotiations. I and, I hope, my constituents take comfort from the words from the Front Bench. I will not support the motion today, but I am relying on those commitments, and I and my constituents want them to be honoured.

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

Jake Berry: I am sorry, I do not have time to give way. Failure to honour commitments on the repatriation of powers and the referendum lock will lead to further erosion of trust in this Government and this Chamber. I hope that the Government will continue to look at repatriating those powers.

Business, Innovation and Skills: Topical Questions (27 Oct 2011)

Jake Berry: I thank my right hon. Friend for that answer. I congratulate Ministers on the fantastic apprenticeship numbers that were announced today.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (1 Nov 2011)

Jake Berry: Labour-controlled Blackburn with Darwen council has abandoned pensioners and schoolchildren in my constituency because of a £10,000 bus cut, but it can still find £94,500 to fund trade union officials. Does my right hon. Friend think it is right that the taxpayer picks up the tab for trade union officials?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Gangs and Youth Violence (1 Nov 2011)

Jake Berry: I have seen personally the wraparound support provided by voluntary mentoring in my constituency, especially by the Lighthouse Foundation supported by the Methodist Church.

What action will the Government take to end taxpayer-funded activity within the public sector?

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Creative Industries (Young People) (3 Nov 2011)

Jake Berry: When young people do manage to get a job, if they choose to listen to the radio in their workplace they may be subjected to hounding by PPL. That company is repeatedly phoning a constituent of mine to demand money for a radio licence when he is working at home in his garage. Will the Minister meet me to discuss this case and the behaviour of the company more generally?

Opposition Day — [Un-allotted Day]: Border Checks Summer 2011 (9 Nov 2011)

Jake Berry: My hon. Friend has long experience in business, which she could perhaps use to compare the suspension of Mr Clark by the UKBA with the sacking, live on television, of Sharon Shoesmith by the current shadow Chancellor.

Rail Services (Clitheroe, Blackburn and Manchester) (10 Jan 2012)

Jake Berry: Let me start by congratulating the right hon. Member for Blackburn (Mr Straw) on securing this very important Adjournment debate, which is vital to his constituency and mine. The railway link between Manchester, Darwen and Blackburn needs to be improved. As we have heard, the current service is infrequent and suffers from chronic overcrowding. Despite those problems, it is heavily used....

Opposition Day — [Un-allotted Day]: Youth Unemployment and Bank Bonuses (23 Jan 2012)

Jake Berry: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Opposition Day — [Un-allotted Day]: Youth Unemployment and Bank Bonuses (23 Jan 2012)

Jake Berry: Let me pick up on the point about things being morally offensive. We have heard about the Leader of the Opposition calling for Fred Goodwin’s knighthood to be removed. Does my hon. Friend agree that if that happened it would also make sense for former Labour Cabinet members who were part of the Government who led to this bankruptcy for Britain to give up their peerages in the other place?

Opposition Day — [Un-allotted Day]: Youth Unemployment and Bank Bonuses (23 Jan 2012)

Jake Berry: It is clear to everybody in the House, regardless which side they sit on, that we are facing exceptionally difficult economic times in this country. I calculated that by the end of this speech, with a six-minute time limit in force and with no interventions, we will have spent in excess of £500,000 just on debt interest. Our national debt is like a credit card, and the sooner we get to grips...

Opposition Day — [Un-allotted Day]: Youth Unemployment and Bank Bonuses (23 Jan 2012)

Jake Berry: I agree. Of particular joy to me is the fact that my constituency has a new academy school, which has entrepreneurship and technology at its heart. We are starting to have those conversations with business in order to equip our young people for the jobs market. I want to talk about what hon. Members can do positively in their constituencies to tackle youth unemployment. As we have heard, much...

Opposition Day — [Un-allotted Day]: Youth Unemployment and Bank Bonuses (23 Jan 2012)

Jake Berry: I thank my hon. Friend for making such an eloquent point. As my near neighbour, he is really throwing the gauntlet down, but I am confident that Rossendale and Darwen will more than beat 107 apprenticeships in 100 days. I want to talk about some of the businesses that I have been to see that are going to support us and that, even before we started, pledged to give a young person a chance by...

[Hywel Williams in the Chair] — Work Capability Assessments (1 Feb 2012)

Jake Berry: In my constituency, I have had the experience of the fit tests being piloted in the Burnley benefits centre. There has been an extreme improvement through the pilot scheme to where we are now. There is more we can do, but I echo my hon. Friend’s thoughts about waiting for the completion of the process before we pass judgment.
