Business of the House (14 Dec 2017)

Ian Mearns: I thank the Leader of the House for her statement and for the cordial meeting that she held with me last week to discuss a range of issues.

I...

Ian Mearns: May I wish you felicitations for your wedding anniversary, Mr Speaker? Also, I am glad that my hon. Friend the Member for Walsall South (Valerie Vaz) is still at the stage where the candles do not cost more than the cake, and I wish her a very happy birthday. [Laughter.] There is a very fine line, Mr Speaker. I ask the Leader of the House for an early indication of availability for Backbench...

Universal Credit Project Assessment Reviews (5 Dec 2017)

Ian Mearns: We have had a number of debates about the roll-out of universal credit throughout the autumn. Government Ministers, including the Secretary of State, said from the outset and subsequently that the system was working fine and going very well indeed, but they recently made a number of concessions. If everything was working so well, why did they make any concessions at all?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Regional Expenditure (30 Nov 2017)

Ian Mearns: Between 2011 and 2016, the average spending per head of the population on transport infrastructure in London was £725, but the similar figure for the north-east was £286. The investment in Tyne and Wear Metro, which is due in three or four years’ time, is very welcome, but we have a very long historical legacy of under-investment. Will the new formula do something about that...

Business of the House (23 Nov 2017)

Ian Mearns: I thank the Leader of the House for the business statement and for announcing the provisional business up until the Christmas recess. The Backbench Business Committee have been busy bees.

Ian Mearns: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Business of the House (16 Nov 2017)

May I make a special plea for as early notice as possible of any Back-Bench Business Committee time after the Budget in the run-up to the Christmas recess? In particular, there is a time-sensitive application for a debate on fisheries from the hon. Member for South East Cornwall (Mrs Murray). The hon. Lady has asked for that debate...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Universal Credit: Rent Arrears (13 Nov 2017)

Ian Mearns: I listened carefully to the Minister’s answer, and I wonder whether it would be of any surprise to her that the chief executive of a large housing authority in the north-west of England recently told me that the authority had arrears of more than £2 million from universal credit alone. Claimants in one authority in Yorkshire and Humber have average arears of more than £1,100...
