Brown Hare (Protection): Ukraine (18 Mar 2014)

Mark Reckless: My right hon. and learned Friend mentions Abkhazia and South Ossetia. As chairman of the all-party group on Georgia I have been struck by how our Georgian friends see Russian interests not so much in Abkhazia, South Ossetia or Crimea but in intimidating Governments, whether in Tbilisi or Kiev.

Brown Hare (Protection): Ukraine (18 Mar 2014)

Mark Reckless: Is it not the case that many senior Russians want to come not to Brussels or to Frankfurt, but to London? Should Britain not consider imposing financial freezing orders or travel restrictions unilaterally, if necessary?

Business of the House: Backbench Business — Police Federation Reform (Normington Report) (13 Feb 2014)

Mark Reckless: Will my hon. Friend explain what specific role he sees the Police Federation playing in assisting that process?

Business of the House: Backbench Business — Police Federation Reform (Normington Report) (13 Feb 2014)

Mark Reckless: As my hon. Friend the Member for Northampton North (Michael Ellis) said, it is a shocking statistic that 91% of members of the Police Federation demand change. But another shocking statistic from a poll is that only 1% of police officers believe that politicians support the police. It is important that it is understood by police officers in particular that this debate is not Members of...

Written Answers — Work and Pensions: National Insurance: Foreign Nationals (27 Jan 2014)

Mark Reckless: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions whether overseas nationals who do not disclose their country of origin are accounted for within releases of national insurance number statistics within the National Insurance Recording System.

Written Answers — Treasury: Minimum Wage (22 Jan 2014)

Mark Reckless: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what recent steps his Department has taken to improve enforcement of the national minimum wage.

Written Answers — International Development: North Korea (22 Jan 2014)

Mark Reckless: To ask the Secretary of State for International Development how much (a) food aid and (b) other aid her Department gave to North Korea in the most recent period for which figures are available; and how much aid has been given to North Korea in each of the last five years for which figures are available.

Opposition Day — [18th Allotted Day] — Pub Companies: Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures (21 Jan 2014)

Mark Reckless: Surely what is important is that those individuals are being deprived of those liberties without due process, a trial and conviction, on the basis solely of suspicion, albeit in many cases potentially justified suspicion.

Police and Crime Commissioners and ACPO (15 Jan 2014)

Mark Reckless: The PCCs I have spoken to do not interpret the report in that way. I can see how the Minister might, reading it broadly, but that has not been their interpretation, to the extent that change management is needed and the Home Office’s co-operation with that is desired. I believe that is an issue for the transitional final year funding that PCCs are prepared to offer to help the Home Office...

Police and Crime Commissioners and ACPO (15 Jan 2014)

Mark Reckless: The key is that the range of people on that board include a serious number of PCCs, who are elected. That is the difference, surely.

Police and Crime Commissioners and ACPO (15 Jan 2014)

Mark Reckless: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Rosindell. I am grateful to have secured this debate, which is timely, as the police and crime commissioners’ decision on the funding of the Association of Chief Police Officers is pending. ACPO still receives £4 million of public funding. Some £1.2 million of that is provided directly by PCCs to ACPO centrally, with the remainder...

Police and Crime Commissioners and ACPO (15 Jan 2014)

Mark Reckless: What is key for our communities is democratic oversight. As I said in my maiden speech, if Labour is now not the party of democratic oversight, which the right hon. Member for Blackburn (Mr Straw) has an honourable record in pushing, but of ACPO, then it can stand on that basis, but that is a sad change. I am not sure whether, in the shadow Minister’s remarks, there was a degree of...

Written Answers — Treasury: Meetings (6 Jan 2014)

Mark Reckless: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what meetings he had with (a) Sir Howard Davies, (b) the Secretary of State for Transport and (c) the Mayor of London between 9 and 17 December 2013; whether a minute was kept of any such meetings; and if he will publish any minutes.

[Nadine Dorries in the Chair] — Backbench business — Immigration (Bulgaria and Romania) (19 Dec 2013)

Mark Reckless: I was talking about the last year under the previous Government, rather than the peak. Is the Minister concerned by the increase in visa applications? They had gone down to 500,000 a quarter in the first half of the year, but are now up to about 530,00 for the third quarter.

[Nadine Dorries in the Chair] — Backbench business — Immigration (Bulgaria and Romania) (19 Dec 2013)

Mark Reckless: I am sorry to hear that the right hon. Gentleman’s grandfather was fighting the Romanians during the first world war, because I understand that Romania was on the allied side in that conflict.

[Nadine Dorries in the Chair] — Backbench business — Immigration (Bulgaria and Romania) (19 Dec 2013)

Mark Reckless: It is a pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Christchurch (Mr Chope) and I also congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Amber Valley (Nigel Mills) on securing the debate. I was elected to this Parliament on the basis of a promise to cut immigration from hundreds of thousands a year to no more than tens of thousands a year. Many of my constituents voted for me on that basis....

[Nadine Dorries in the Chair] — Backbench business — Immigration (Bulgaria and Romania) (19 Dec 2013)

Mark Reckless: And of course the Minister, and his predecessor from Kent, my right hon. Friend the Member for Ashford (Damian Green), who also put forward that case. Although the Government have taken a lot of action on immigration, much of which is in the detail of what has been done—I credit both Ministers for their work in that area—I am concerned that in several key areas we have relaxed what we...

[Nadine Dorries in the Chair] — Backbench business — Immigration (Bulgaria and Romania) (19 Dec 2013)

Mark Reckless: I believe you said Third Reading. We shall see what the record says. However, Third Reading has been delayed. It will not happen till the new year, although we do not know when. Perhaps the Minister can tell us that as well. Many of us think that it would be sensible to have a debate, or indeed a vote, on the amendment tabled by my hon. Friend the Member for Amber Valley before the...

[Nadine Dorries in the Chair] — Backbench business — Immigration (Bulgaria and Romania) (19 Dec 2013)

Mark Reckless: First, little Englanders versus the multilateral open-door people—I do not know if the hon. Gentleman puts himself in the second category, but if he does I wonder if it more a sign of his own narcissism than anything else.
