London Stock Exchange (21 Feb 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: It is always a pleasure to see you in the Chair, Mr Hollobone. I begin by congratulating the hon. Member for Stone (Sir William Cash) on securing this extremely important debate at a critical time for the London Stock Exchange and for the many financial services companies in Europe and beyond that depend on its continued successful functioning. The hon. Gentleman could reasonably be regarded...

Unaccompanied Child Refugees (9 Feb 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: I know that just one Christian charity in London is housing more than 30 children, which appears to be 10% of the entire national effort. Many faith communities are willing to step up to do what we would like the Government to do themselves. If they want to do more, will the Home Secretary let them?

Housing White Paper (7 Feb 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: We desperately need new houses, but development is not always popular with the public. The key issue is infrastructure. The best proposal I have ever seen is building new garden villages and putting in schools, roads and infrastructure at the same time. The Government have had a pilot, but is it something that they will take forward?

Exiting the Eu: New Partnership (2 Feb 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: One crucial and reasonable question for the Secretary of State to answer is: how does he see frictionless, unfettered trade with the EU continuing after we have signed free trade deals with other countries? Surely the greater the divergence between ourselves and the single market in external tariffs and standards, the greater their need at some point to impose customs checks on us.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (1 Feb 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: Prime Minister, your responses today have been deeply unsatisfactory. The President of the United States has advocated torture, misogyny, racial discrimination, sexual assault and isolationism. The leaders of Canada and Germany were able to respond robustly, but your response was to jump on a plane as soon as possible to hold his hand. Does this country not deserve a leader who is willing to...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill (31 Jan 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: I agree entirely with the hon. Gentleman’s analysis. I will vote to invoke article 50 because of that respect for democracy. He mentioned heeding the views of the remain voters in his area, so does he believe that we should have a meaningful vote on the deal, and not a yes or no rejection of it?

Us Immigration Policy (30 Jan 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: Does the Foreign Secretary accept that such action is exactly what ISIS wants and plays into its false narrative that the west is anti-Muslim? What President Trump has done is not only immoral, but a threat to our national security. That is why we cannot be seen to endorse it.

Homelessness Reduction Bill: Deliberate and unreasonable refusal to co-operate: duty upon giving of notice (27 Jan 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: We have all managed to make this part of the Bill sound very technical, but it seems to me that what it basically means is that the quality of private rented homes offered to families will improve, which is something that a great many people want to happen. Is that the hon. Gentleman’s understanding as well?

Written Answers — Department of Health: Hospitals: Complaints (25 Jan 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what procedures are in place for NHS hospital complaints to be processed in a timely fashion; and what recourse patients and their relatives have in the event of delays in the processing of such complaints.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Tintwistle, Hollingworth and Mottram Bypass (24 Jan 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what progress has been made to date on the Mottram bypass.

Intellectual Property (Unjustified Threats) Bill [Lords]: Toilet Facilities: People with Disabilities (17 Jan 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: I thank the House for granting me today’s debate on community toilet facilities for people with disabilities. May I take this opportunity to thank the Minister for his attendance? This is not an issue with a party political dimension, but one on which I hope we can achieve cross-party consensus to make a real difference to the quality of life of millions of citizens living with...

Intellectual Property (Unjustified Threats) Bill [Lords]: Toilet Facilities: People with Disabilities (17 Jan 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: I am certainly happy to do that and I thank hon. Members who have stayed for this debate, perhaps to raise issues that have affected their constituents, too.

Intellectual Property (Unjustified Threats) Bill [Lords]: Toilet Facilities: People with Disabilities (17 Jan 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for raising that point. I will be mentioning Changing Places toilets later on in my speech. There is an absence of them in my area, too, so any work we could do to improve provision would be welcome and that could be a very good way forward. There are a number of ways in which I think we could improve the situation and find a solution. I would be greatly proud...

Intellectual Property (Unjustified Threats) Bill [Lords]: Toilet Facilities: People with Disabilities (17 Jan 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: I absolutely agree, and I will say something specific about that too. This is absolutely not just a duty but an opportunity for businesses. I would love this debate to get that message across to people. On public services, I understand that in many cases local authority-provided public toilets were among the first amenities to be lost following substantial cuts to local government...

Intellectual Property (Unjustified Threats) Bill [Lords]: Toilet Facilities: People with Disabilities (17 Jan 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his comments. It is wonderful news. I am afraid that I cannot share equally good news about my own area, although I hope one day to be able to do so. In Manchester city centre, there are now only nine public toilets—down from 18 just a few years ago—although the council has had some success in introducing the City Loos scheme, whereby businesses can...

Intellectual Property (Unjustified Threats) Bill [Lords]: Toilet Facilities: People with Disabilities (17 Jan 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: I am grateful for the hon. Lady’s comments and to the many colleagues who have stayed for this debate. It is extremely pleasing to hear that such schemes are already in existence in some parts of the country. Just as many shops and cafes now have “Breastfeeding welcome” signs in their windows, I would like to see as many businesses as possible displaying signs saying:...

Intellectual Property (Unjustified Threats) Bill [Lords]: Toilet Facilities: People with Disabilities (17 Jan 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: I absolutely agree. People with profound and multiple learning disabilities, as well people with other physical disabilities such as spinal injuries, muscular dystrophy and multiple sclerosis often need extra equipment and space to allow them to use the toilets safely and comfortably. These needs are met by Changing Places toilets.

Intellectual Property (Unjustified Threats) Bill [Lords]: Toilet Facilities: People with Disabilities (17 Jan 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: I absolutely agree. This is a fantastic scheme, but as the hon. Lady says, in those 10 years we have secured less than 1,000—just 914—registered Changing Places toilets in the UK. I echo the calls of campaigners to make this 1,000 before the end of this year.

Intellectual Property (Unjustified Threats) Bill [Lords]: Toilet Facilities: People with Disabilities (17 Jan 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: I would love to see that. We could then start to guarantee that there would be substantial increases year on year.

Intellectual Property (Unjustified Threats) Bill [Lords]: Toilet Facilities: People with Disabilities (17 Jan 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: Absolutely. I echo all those comments. It is wonderful to hear Members report the good work from their constituencies. I am a little bit jealous, because it was sad to discover that there are currently no registered Changing Places toilets in my borough of Tameside in Greater Manchester. I pledge to work with my local partners to see if that is something that we can change. I offer my thanks,...
