Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Local Housing Provision (24 Apr 2017)

Stuart Andrew: What plans he has to introduce an alternative method of estimating the number of homes a local area may need.

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Local Housing Provision (24 Apr 2017)

Stuart Andrew: The methodology used by Leeds City Council has brought about an excessive 70,000 housing target, which has threatened swathes of green-belt and greenfield sites in my constituency. If the alternative method proves my community’s suspicion that the target is excessive, will that override the current target and help to save these important green lungs in my constituency?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: UK Single Market (19 Apr 2017)

Stuart Andrew: What assessment he has made of the contribution of the UK single market to Scotland.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: UK Single Market (19 Apr 2017)

Stuart Andrew: My constituency has a long and proud tradition of textile companies, many of which trade with all parts of the United Kingdom. How will those companies be helped by Scotland leaving the hugely successful UK single market?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Bilateral Relations: India (28 Mar 2017)

Stuart Andrew: What recent assessment he has made of the strength of relations between India and the UK.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Bilateral Relations: India (28 Mar 2017)

Stuart Andrew: I am grateful for that answer. Strong relations between our two nations should be welcomed, particularly given the potential trading opportunities, but “good relations” means talking about concerns as well as successes. What discussions has the Foreign Office had with the Indian Government on Kashmir and human rights?

Housing White Paper (7 Feb 2017)

Stuart Andrew: Thousands of homes have been built on brownfield in my constituency, but thanks to Labour’s excessive 70,000 housing target, we are now seeing swathes of green belt coming under threat. Does the standardised methodology for housing need offer hope to my constituents that we can have a realistic housing target review to meet housing demand?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (1 Feb 2017)

Stuart Andrew: Today it is inconceivable that somebody would be prosecuted based on who and what they are. Will my right hon. Friend join me in welcoming the posthumous pardon of some 49,000 men thanks to the Government’s Turing Bill which was enacted yesterday? Will she also encourage those who are still alive to come forward so that their injustices can be overturned?

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill (31 Jan 2017)

Stuart Andrew: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Ynys Môn (Albert Owen), particularly because his constituency is my home island, and I value his contribution. My remarks will be brief. Like most Members, I supported the idea of having a referendum. I felt that it was right for the British people to decide our future relationship with the EU. We have all heard the many contrary views...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill (31 Jan 2017)

Stuart Andrew: As I said, it was a vote of the whole United Kingdom. I hear a lot from SNP Members about the people who voted to remain, but I never hear them stand up for those in Scotland who voted to leave. The hon. Member for Ynys Môn talked about the referendum in Wales, in which I campaigned heavily for a no vote. I lost that campaign, but I completely respected the view of the people of Wales...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill (31 Jan 2017)

Stuart Andrew: I can understand the Government’s point because I am stuck in the middle. My brother has just got engaged to a Polish girl who wants to stay here and, on the other hand, my father lives in Spain, and he wants to ensure that his rights are protected. I can see this from two angles. The Government have made the offer and are trying to give very clear support to EU nationals here. It is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Banking: Carers (17 Jan 2017)

Stuart Andrew: What progress has been made on improving access to online and in-branch banking for carers.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Banking: Carers (17 Jan 2017)

Stuart Andrew: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for meeting my constituent Annie Dransfield, who, as a carer for her adult son, manages his finances in the hope that he will be able to live as independent a life as possible, but she has real issues trying to access his online banking. Given the increasing number of carers in the country, does my hon. Friend agree that the banking industry should do all it...

Homophobia in Sport (30 Nov 2016)

Stuart Andrew: I beg to move, That this House has considered homophobia in sport. I point out that the error on the Order Paper is not my fault—promise. I am pleased to have secured what I think is an important debate, because, for me, sport has the potential to be a great equaliser in society. It brings together people from many different backgrounds to participate and spectate in the best possible...

Homophobia in Sport (30 Nov 2016)

Stuart Andrew: I am grateful for that intervention and I certainly agree. We can look at some of our successes—I think of the England women’s football team and the British hockey team—which are fantastic, but we need to encourage more choice in sport for all genders. The perception that Sue Day spoke of is widely expressed in sport at all levels by professionals and spectators alike. I...

Homophobia in Sport (30 Nov 2016)

Stuart Andrew: My hon. Friend makes a valid point. In some aspects of sport—I will come on to football in a bit—huge amounts of money are spent on sponsorship, and I can understand why some players may fear that that would be a problem. He makes a strong point that I think all sponsors need to think about when drawing up those deals. To come back to the inquiry that is happening at the moment, I...

Homophobia in Sport (30 Nov 2016)

Stuart Andrew: I completely agree with my hon. Friend. Language is incredibly important, and the wrong language can lead to much more dangerous actions if we are not careful. She is absolutely right that that needs to be tackled and understood, and washing it away as banter is unacceptable. The “Out on the Fields” survey also found that 70% of gay men are completely or partially in the closet...

Homophobia in Sport (30 Nov 2016)

Stuart Andrew: Absolutely. They need to catch up with the times. I look back in awe at how far society and this country have come in my lifetime. When I was in my teens, which feels like a billion years ago, the age of consent was 21, and now we have equal marriage in our country. That is fantastic. To say that now is not the time for gay players to come out is just not acceptable. The hon. Gentleman is...

Prime Minister: Engagements (30 Nov 2016)

Stuart Andrew: The digital and creative industry is an important part of the UK economy, and Leeds is an important hub in the sector. In welcoming the £1 billion investment in better broadband in the autumn statement, may I urge my right hon. Friend to ensure that Yorkshire gets its fair share, so that we can build on this success and make Leeds the capital of this industry?
