Space Industry Bill [Lords] (15 Jan 2018)

Justin Tomlinson: It is an absolute pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for South East Cornwall (Mrs Murray), who has put a very strong case for why her constituency should benefit—

Space Industry Bill [Lords] (15 Jan 2018)

Justin Tomlinson: She has put a very strong case for why the whole of Cornwall should benefit from this very exciting Bill. I very much welcome the Bill. It is an interstellar element of our modern industrial strategy setting out how the UK will become a leading player in the commercial space age. This is really exciting. I am delighted to hear all the MPs, right across the House, pitching for why their...

Disability Confident Scheme — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (10 Jan 2018)

Justin Tomlinson: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Rosindell. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Ochil and South Perthshire (Luke Graham) on his fantastic speech. I have known him for many years, and I am not surprised that he has a full grasp, and a very proactive and constructive way, of promoting this very important issue. It is a pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Equality impact analyses of provisions of this Act (19 Dec 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: Specifically on Remploy, yes, there were some great practices there, but the Government made that decision because very few were able to progress into work, and we wanted to create more opportunities so that more people can benefit. That is partly why we have seen an extra 600,000 disabled people find work, which is a great thing.

Local Government Finance Settlement (19 Dec 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: rose—

Local Government Finance Settlement (19 Dec 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: With local authorities being given greater resources, powers and flexibility, what are the Government doing to share best practice to make sure that taxpayers’ money is spent wisely?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Rights of Disabled People (18 Dec 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: Not only did the report seemingly fail to recognise that we now spend a record £50 billion on supporting people with disabilities and long-term health conditions, but it also failed to recognise the proactive work with charities and stakeholder groups that helps to shape policies. Will the Minister reconfirm her commitment to that proactive engagement?

Quality in the Built Environment (13 Dec 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Ryan. I was initially only looking to intervene, so my contribution will be short. I want to offer my total support for my hon. Friend the Member for Bury St Edmunds (Jo Churchill). I cannot think of a speech I have agreed with more than the one she made. I say that as someone who represents Swindon, which has been one of the fastest...

Work Capability Assessments — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (13 Dec 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Work Capability Assessments — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (13 Dec 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms McDonagh, and to follow the hon. Member for Wolverhampton South West (Eleanor Smith)—I have many happy childhood memories of visiting Wolverhampton. I pay tribute to the hon. Member for Glasgow East (David Linden), who demonstrated his passion for this very important subject. He is clearly representing his constituents in a very...

Work Capability Assessments — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (13 Dec 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his intervention, and in particular for his very kind words. It was always a pleasure working with him. He is certainly one of my favourite Members on the Opposition Benches in the way he engages and shapes things, although my comment might not help him in Scotland. The theory is that, if the assessments are done correctly, they are a judgment over a period of...

Work Capability Assessments — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (13 Dec 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: That is an important intervention. Those records are already taken into consideration, but other things that I am about to come on to strengthen that point. On the high appeal rates, it would help if we could get permission to automatically access those health records. Far too many people are going through the system and only realise they need those pieces of supporting evidence after they...

Work Capability Assessments — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (13 Dec 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: None of us wants it go wrong ever—no one would argue for that. Four months is not acceptable. The hon. Lady has raised the issue. I suspect that our helpful Minister will diligently make a note and that the hon. Lady will be contacted shortly about that case. The majority of those out of work have been away from work for a very long time. They are desperate for an opportunity. As part...

Lotteries: Limits on Prize Values — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (12 Dec 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: My hon. Friend is giving a characteristically powerful and well-thought-out speech on this important subject. It is clear that we have allowed the national lottery to establish its market position, but as he highlighted, a huge number of different companies and societies offer products. It is an opportunity for the market to choose between different prizes, stakes and innovative games, and...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: UK Automotive Sector (12 Dec 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: What steps he is taking to support the UK automotive sector.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: UK Automotive Sector (12 Dec 2017)
