Taylor Review (7 Feb 2018)

Alec Shelbrooke: I warmly congratulate the Minister on the positive way he is taking forward the Taylor review and the Government’s ambitions. Back in May 2014, I brought forward a ten-minute rule Bill to ban unpaid internships. In 2016, I introduced a private Member’s Bill to ban unpaid internships—which the Labour party did not support, I hasten to add. When the Minister is dealing with...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (7 Feb 2018)

Alec Shelbrooke: According to Library statistics, around 3,400 people in my constituency were diagnosed with cancer last year. Cancer survival rates have meant that 7,000 people are alive today who might not have been if the 2010 survival rates had stayed the same. Does my right hon. Friend see that as a testament to the NHS and the Government’s investment in it, and does she welcome that news while...

Capita: Business of the House (1 Feb 2018)

Alec Shelbrooke: In the village of Oulton in my constituency, a company that owns 70 rented homes has put in for planning permission to demolish them and replace them with private dwellings. On Friday, I met some of my constituents who could soon be receiving eviction notices and would therefore require new homes. May we have a statement from the Housing Minister on the power that Leeds City Council may or...

Restoration and Renewal (Report of the Joint Committee) (31 Jan 2018)

Alec Shelbrooke: The problem with today’s debate, and the reason I will be supporting motion 1 in the name of my right hon. Friend the Leader of the House, is that in many ways we are being asked to take a bit of a punt and a bit of a guess. What I like about motion 1 is paragraphs (4) and (5), which amendment (b) seeks to amend, because I honestly do not believe that we have enough facts before us. We...

Restoration and Renewal (Report of the Joint Committee) (31 Jan 2018)

Alec Shelbrooke: Will the hon. Gentleman just clarify that he is saying that we should have individual desks?

Yorkshire Devolution (9 Jan 2018)

Alec Shelbrooke: I have listened carefully to what the hon. Gentleman is saying, and I seek clarification on his comments; I am happy to be corrected if I am wrong in my understanding. Is he saying that at the end of the process, if Sheffield and Rotherham councils do not want to break away from the Sheffield deal and carry on, only Barnsley and Doncaster councils will come into the Yorkshire deal, and...

Yorkshire Devolution (9 Jan 2018)

Alec Shelbrooke: I am most grateful to the hon. Gentleman for being generous with his time. To develop that point, is it suggested that the East-West-North Yorkshire deal would be developed, and that Barnsley and Doncaster could then choose to join it, or is that what would happen at the start? If councils in West, East or North Yorkshire did not want to join in with South Yorkshire, would they be able to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Dec 2017)

Alec Shelbrooke: In the 1980s, Mrs Thatcher famously commented to the Vietnamese—[Interruption.]

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Dec 2017)

Alec Shelbrooke: Thank you, Mr Speaker. As I was saying, in the 1980s Mrs Thatcher famously asked why, if Vietnam was so wonderful, millions of people were getting into boats to leave it. With that in mind, may I ask my right hon. Friend, as she enters the second phase of the Brexit negotiations, “If World Trade Organisation rules are so wonderful, why do so many countries seek WTO trade agreements?”

Harassment in Public Life (18 Dec 2017)

Alec Shelbrooke: The difference between social media and the printed media is the anonymity factor. Will my right hon. Friend listen very carefully to the investigation about what can be done that is being undertaken by the right hon. Member for Normanton, Pontefract and Castleford (Yvette Cooper)? At the end of the day, social media is becoming a cancer in our society, but the people who own and run it can...

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.
