Bill under S.O. No.23 (details to be provided) – Peter Aldous. Ten Minute Rule Motion

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Peter Aldous: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for South East Cornwall (Mrs Murray) on securing this debate. Although this is annual event each December, this particular debate stands apart from those that have been held in the past 40 years. These debates normally focus on putting steel in the Minister’s backbone ahead of the EU Agriculture and Fisheries Council meeting. This year, as well...

Backbench Business: Deafness and Hearing Loss — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (30 Nov 2017)

Peter Aldous: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr McCabe. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Poplar and Limehouse (Jim Fitzpatrick) on securing the debate. Colleagues have spoken very movingly about their personal experiences. It is great to see my hon. Friend the Member for Winchester (Steve Brine) in his place as the responding Minister. I am sure he will do this ably, but...

State Pension Age: Women (29 Nov 2017)

Peter Aldous: We have debated this matter on numerous occasions. It is important that it is not used for the purpose of political expediency, because many people are experiencing serious challenges. We must listen to them and seek to address their concerns in a way that is responsible and financially prudent, but also just and fair. I have received a great deal of correspondence over the past two years...

Rail Update (29 Nov 2017)

Peter Aldous: I thank the Secretary of State for his statement. The east Suffolk line, which runs from Lowestoft to Ipswich, dodged the Beeching bullet and is now going from strength to strength, with a regular hourly service. Will he give an assurance that his improvements will provide the framework for further improvements, including a more frequent and faster service?

Universal Credit (23 Nov 2017)

Peter Aldous: I welcome the Secretary of State’s announcement. Successful completion of the roll-out requires ongoing dialogue with a variety of organisations, including Jobcentre Plus offices, local housing authorities, charities, food banks and local landlords. Can he provide an assurance that he will continue to liaise and work with such bodies?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (14 Nov 2017)

Peter Aldous: The James Paget Hospital at Gorleston, which is doing great work under great pressure, has highlighted the fact that it and the clinical commissioning group have two different regulators. Does my right hon. Friend agree that it would be sensible for one body to oversee both organisations, so as to avoid duplication and redirect funds to the front line?

Written Answers — Department for Education: Sign Language: GCSE (8 Nov 2017)

Peter Aldous: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, if she will make British sign language available as a GCSE.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Social Care: Minimum Wage Back Payment (7 Nov 2017)

Peter Aldous: The Government’s new interim compliance scheme, announced last week, unfortunately adds to the uncertainty facing the social care sector. May I urge the Minister to do all she can to ensure that, as quickly as possible, the Government get back round the table with the sector to find an acceptable long-term solution?

Taxation: Beer and Pubs — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (31 Oct 2017)

Peter Aldous: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Owen. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Dudley South (Mike Wood) on securing this debate. I will focus on the specific issue of small breweries’ relief. I ask that the Government consider removing export volumes from the relief’s calculations. There is clear evidence that the current arrangements hold breweries back...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (30 Oct 2017)

Peter Aldous: Can the Secretary of State confirm that his Department is liaising with the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to ensure that ports such as Lowestoft have the necessary infrastructure and supply chain to take advantage of the opportunities arising from the forthcoming Fisheries Bill?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Beer Exports (26 Oct 2017)

Peter Aldous: I am grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Shrewsbury and Atcham (Daniel Kawczynski) for raising this issue. St Peter’s Brewery in my constituency has built up a very good export business over many years. Does my hon. Friend agree that it is vital post Brexit, if we are to open up new markets and create new jobs, that such obstacles are removed?

Social Care: Supported Housing (25 Oct 2017)

Peter Aldous: I welcome this debate, as it follows on well from the half-hour Westminster Hall debate I secured on 10 October. That was very well attended and, although I was able to take some interventions, I am very aware that a lot of colleagues were not able to have their say. Today’s debate provides a further opportunity for Members from across the House to re-emphasise the vital importance of...

Universal Credit Roll-Out (24 Oct 2017)

Peter Aldous: I pay tribute to the Minister. Since February, he has engaged with my constituency to improve universal credit. Taking into account the debates we have had over the past few days, does he not agree that to make universal credit truly flexible and personalised but also fair, it is necessary to ensure that first payments are made far more quickly and that private sector landlords can set up...

Backbench Business: Carbon Capture and Storage — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (19 Oct 2017)

Peter Aldous: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir David. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland (Mr Clarke) on securing this debate. His timing is spot on, given the publication last week of the clean growth strategy. We last held a debate in this Chamber on carbon capture and storage on 24 January. From my perspective, the outcome of that...

Backbench Business: Carbon Capture and Storage — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (19 Oct 2017)

Peter Aldous: Yes, I do. I am happy to acknowledge it. We have enormous, significant expertise across the UK. I am sure that all of us in this Chamber can highlight institutions in or near our constituencies that can and should put us at the vanguard of the low-carbon economy and its global development over the next few years. As I was saying, the UK has acquired enormous expertise and experience in the...

Backbench Business: Carbon Capture and Storage — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (19 Oct 2017)

Peter Aldous: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for that intervention. I talked this morning to representatives of Statoil, who emphasised that they are proceeding with CCS and that the situation is, dare I say, a fact of life with minority Governments. We have a great deal in common with Norway. The Norwegians are also taking forward CCS, and they are slightly ahead of us. However, I emphasise that it is...

Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Peter Aldous: In my constituency the full roll-out of universal credit began in Lowestoft in May 2016, and is due to begin in Beccles later this month. In Lowestoft significant problems have been encountered: many vulnerable people have been placed in very difficult situations, and at times the system has struggled to cope. Over the past nine months the position has improved, but challenges remain, and it...

Supported Housing Funding — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (10 Oct 2017)

Peter Aldous: I beg to move, That this House has considered future funding of supported housing. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Streeter. I am pleased to have secured this debate, which comes at an appropriate time, ahead of the Government’s publication of their response to the consultation that finished in February. I am aware that many colleagues want to take part in this...

Supported Housing Funding — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (10 Oct 2017)

Peter Aldous: The hon. Member for Dulwich and West Norwood (Helen Hayes) refers to the joint Select Committee report, which I will address in some length. It is part of the valuable work that Parliament has done.
