Royal Assent: Business of the House (7 Dec 2017)

Alec Shelbrooke: My constituent had a £200,000 offer on his house shortly before phase 2 of High Speed 2 was announced. HS2 Ltd has now valued the house at £185,000. Can I have a statement from the relevant Minister on how HS2 Ltd is instructing these valuations?

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (27 Nov 2017)

Alec Shelbrooke: A minute?

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (27 Nov 2017)

Alec Shelbrooke: There is much to welcome in the Budget, not least when we talk about Britain on the global stage. Infrastructure investment in this country will be important in raising our productivity and making us fit for the global stage. With that in mind, the £300 million to link other infrastructure improvements to the HS2 project is important to me, not least because it will link the HS2 station...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (27 Nov 2017)

Alec Shelbrooke: My Conservative colleagues simply do not recognise what the hon. Member for Glenrothes has just said as a fact in Scotland. There is only one party on the rise in Scotland, and it is not the SNP. The reality is that our country and this Government can stand proud of our work on the world stage. I pay tribute to the hon. Member for Tooting (Dr Allin-Khan). The whole House recognises that she...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (27 Nov 2017)

Alec Shelbrooke: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Business of the House (16 Nov 2017)

Alec Shelbrooke: Last week, the Labour chair of the plans panel on Leeds City Council referred to those who are opposed to the destruction of the green belt in my constituency as “sharp-elbowed NIMBYs”. May we have a statement from the relevant Minister on the quasi-judicial responsibilities of plans panel chairs and the course of action available to applicants, and my constituents in Elmet and...

Business of the House (2 Nov 2017)

Alec Shelbrooke: On Friday, a constituent came to see me to describe how his 20-year-old son has inherited an eye disease, retinitis pigmentosa, which will cause him to go blind and for which there is currently no cure. May we have debate on mental health support networks available for young adults who have been diagnosed with degenerative diseases, who require specialist support to overcome issues such as...

European Council (23 Oct 2017)

Alec Shelbrooke: There are some misguided amnesiacs who think that nationalisation is good way forward. There are also some who think that we should stay in the single market. Will my right hon. Friend confirm that, due to state aid rules, a country cannot nationalise if it is in the single market?

Surgical Mesh Implants — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (18 Oct 2017)

Alec Shelbrooke: Will the Minister make a specific inquiry to the MHRA about the evidence of bacterial infection on the product, which flies in the face of its advice that the product must have sterility in order to be implanted? There seems to be a contradiction in the MHRA’s advice as to how it should be licensing products.

Surgical Mesh Implants — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (18 Oct 2017)

Alec Shelbrooke: My constituent described it as trying to remove hair from chewing gum, which shows just how utterly complicated this surgery is.

Surgical Mesh Implants — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (18 Oct 2017)

Alec Shelbrooke: I pay tribute to the hon. Member for Kingston upon Hull West and Hessle (Emma Hardy) for securing this debate. I did not know about the subject until a constituent came to see me on Friday. The stories in the Chamber today from all parts of the realm—from Northern Ireland, Wales, Scotland and England—with every Member of Parliament telling a similar tale, show that this is the...

Iran (16 Oct 2017)

Alec Shelbrooke: The deal has made the world a safer place, but it does not cover all aspects, as my right hon. Friend has said. Some constituents of mine are worried that we are giving too much to Iran and ignoring the sponsorship of terrorism that goes on elsewhere. The deal is vital and only it can be the way a peaceful solution can be moved forward, but will he confirm that Britain still stands with other...

HS2 Update (17 Jul 2017)

Alec Shelbrooke: rose—

HS2 Update (17 Jul 2017)

Alec Shelbrooke: Bringing some brightness to this late hour. May I say to my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State that the jobs bonanza that will come with moving the depot to Stourton is hugely welcome to Leeds, the Aire valley and my constituents? On the conversation that I had with the Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury, my hon. Friend the Member for Harrogate and Knaresborough (Andrew Jones), and on...

Adjournment (November and Christmas): Business of the House (Private Members’ Bills) (17 Jul 2017)

Alec Shelbrooke: While the hon. Gentleman is making accusations about my hon. Friend the Member for Shipley (Philip Davies), it may help to point out that my hon. Friend spoke for over an hour on my private Member’s Bill and made some very constructive points, even though he opposed it. He did not just oppose it for opposition’s sake.

Driving Offences: Private Land (13 Jul 2017)

Alec Shelbrooke: I am most grateful to hear what my right hon. Friend says, and it will come as a great relief to Pamela and her family that this has been taken so seriously. May I ask whether I could bring Pamela and her solicitor so that they can give their first-hand experience and talk about how this law may be developed?

Driving Offences: Private Land (13 Jul 2017)

Alec Shelbrooke: On 9 August 2013, a terrible, tragic and preventable accident took place at Swithens farm in my constituency. Eleven-year-old Harry Whitlam died from injuries he sustained after being struck by a reversing farm vehicle. The driver of that vehicle was over twice the legal drink-drive limit, but the Crown Prosecution Service did not bring a prosecution as the accident was deemed to have...

Bill Presented: Passchendaele (13 Jul 2017)

Alec Shelbrooke: My hon. Friend is making a powerful point about the education of young people. On a slightly tangential but important point, may I urge him to make contact with the Holocaust Educational Trust, which does massively important work in taking young people to Auschwitz, which shows what unbridled power can lead to?

Bill Presented: Passchendaele (13 Jul 2017)

Alec Shelbrooke: My right hon. Friend is rightly describing the sea battle and what was happening at sea, which brought the Americans into the war. Does he agree that, when people ask whether we had to go into the war, the reality is that we could well have been starved out if we had not taken those actions?
