Backbench Business: Leaving the EU: Customs Arrangements — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Jul 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: It is a pleasure to see you in the Chair, Mr Streeter, and I congratulate the hon. Member for Wimbledon (Stephen Hammond) on securing this debate. I do not wish to do him any harm, but I can say honestly that I am always prepared to listen to him, and I found his speech lucid, informed and persuasive. You will understand what I mean, Mr Streeter, when I say that when I was sitting in the...

Backbench Business: Leaving the EU: Customs Arrangements — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Jul 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. I say to all Ministers that, for many of us, this matter is not an abstract question. I am a little younger than my hon. Friend the Member for Bishop Auckland (Helen Goodman), but I grew up in the north-east in the 1980s, not far from her constituency. It was clearly a time of substantial turmoil. We had the miners’ strike and the shipyards closing....

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Leaving the Customs Union: Scotland (3 Jul 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: According to EY’s recently released Brexit Tracker, a third of all financial services companies have confirmed that they will move staff or operations outside the United Kingdom. Most are going to Dublin, Frankfurt and Luxembourg, and they are going because this Government cannot give them the basic assurances for which they, and we, have been asking for 18 months. After eight failed...

Saddleworth Moor and Tameside: Ongoing Fire (2 Jul 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: (Urgent Question): To ask the Home Office if it will make a statement regarding the ongoing fire on the Saddleworth and Tameside moors.

Saddleworth Moor and Tameside: Ongoing Fire (2 Jul 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: I thank you, Mr Speaker, for granting this question on the behalf of my constituents and those of my hon. Friend the Member for Oldham East and Saddleworth (Debbie Abrahams). Words alone cannot adequately describe the scale of the challenge that the fire has posed to my constituents and to the emergency services in Greater Manchester. I express my gratitude to the Greater Manchester fire and...

Football: Safe Standing — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (25 Jun 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: I will never forget my first proper experience of football. It was Christmas 1989. I remember the anticipation walking through the streets to get to Roker Park. I remember how close I felt to the action once I was inside. I remember the freezing cold wind off the North sea that used to hit me on the terraces. What I genuinely do not remember was feeling unsafe, because I have never felt...

Scottish Affairs Committee (7 Jun 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: I am grateful to the Scottish Affairs Committee for undertaking this work on what is an extremely important issue, and I welcome the hon. Gentleman’s proposals, which mirror many of those in the last Labour manifesto. Much has been made by the Government of the availability of post offices as an alternative when the last branch in town closes. Did the Committee assess whether that would...

Business of the House (7 Jun 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: May we have a debate about the length of time that it is taking to process personal independence payment appeals? My constituent Frankie Cooper of Hyde has waited nearly 10 months for an appeal against the decision to take away her mobility car. This is far too long and she deserves to have the issue resolved. Too often this Government have presided over a social security system that is cruel...

Rail Timetabling (4 Jun 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: Northern’s new emergency timetable takes 165 services out of the timetable. It has been running for the first day today. A further 40 trains have been cancelled and punctuality is running at under 50%. Those figures were correct as I came into the Chamber at 5 o’clock, so they do not include the evening peak. The one question the Secretary of State has not answered so far is this:...

Backbench Business - Banking Misconduct and the Fcabackbench Business (10 May 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: It has been a sobering experience to listen to this debate. We have heard so many stories and so much advocacy from hon. Members on behalf of constituents. I commend everyone who has spoken today. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for East Lothian (Martin Whitfield) and the all-party parliamentary group on fair business banking for securing this debate on a topic that continues to be of such...

Backbench Business - Banking Misconduct and the Fcabackbench Business (10 May 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman. These are the questions that need answering. People have told me that they worked for RBS and left because they were unhappy with the conduct of the bank. Surely they should also be allowed to put their case in a proper way. Returning to the confidentiality of section 166 reports, I have to put on record the disquiet, certainly among Opposition Members,...

Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill: Assaults on police constables (27 Apr 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: I agree with much of what the hon. Gentleman says about the reality of the prosecution system and how it operates on the ground, but this Bill is about a little more than just the legal mechanisms we want the Crown Prosecution Service to follow. It is about the signal we send out. It is about trying to change the culture. Right now, we have a situation in this country in which many people...

Backbench Business: Financial Services — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (26 Apr 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: My point was not around the specifics of regulations; it is a question of economic models and the partnership we seek with the European Union. We have to try to move the negotiations forward. We have to give them an unequivocal sign of what our future intentions are, or we simply will not get the progress that we need. We are already way behind where we need to be. The point around...

Backbench Business: Financial Services — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (26 Apr 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: I agree entirely with the Minister’s analysis but he would surely recognise that the transition period can come into play only if the Northern Irish issue is solved. The only way to solve the Northern Ireland issue is with a customs union, and the only way to solve where the country is on that is to let the House of Commons vote on it. Does the Minister know whether the Trade Bill will...

Backbench Business: Financial Services — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (26 Apr 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: Thank you very much, Sir David, for calling me; it is always a pleasure to spend some time on a Thursday afternoon with you in the Chair. I begin by congratulating the hon. Member for Chelmsford (Vicky Ford) on securing this debate and on her very fine speech to introduce the subject that we are debating. Indeed, I have enjoyed listening not only to her speech, but to those of the hon....

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Leaving the EU: No Deal (17 Apr 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: The UK’s economic growth in the final quarter of 2017 was the weakest of any economy in the G7, and the OBR is forecasting that the UK is on course for our worst period of economic growth since the end of the second world war. However, none of these already dire forecasts factors in a no-deal Brexit, which would have a severe impact on jobs, growth and tax revenues. We know the...

Kerslake Arena Attack Review (28 Mar 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: It is difficult to read parts of the report, because it requires us to relive that evening and the days after it, but there is much to be proud of in terms of the response and the incredible sense of solidarity across Greater Manchester and throughout the whole country in the days afterwards. A report such as this should never be about scapegoating—it is about learning lessons—but...

Grenfell Update: The Economy (22 Mar 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: I wish to ask a serious question. The right hon. Gentleman is very well remunerated for his views on finance and is very much sought after for advice in the City. He will know that, if we were to lose just 10% of, say, the financial services sector in the UK, as a result of market access ending through Brexit, that would constitute a loss of £8 billion to £9 billion in taxation to...

Grenfell Update: The Economy (22 Mar 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: The slogan of the leave campaign was “Take back control”. What does that mean if it does not mean taking back control of one’s borders? There are movements of people that need to be considered. There is still the common travel area between this country and the Republic of Ireland. One cannot simply introduce borders and then tell the British public that those borders will...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Leaving the EU (27 Feb 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: Many Cabinet members have made their views clear about the single market and customs union. The Chancellor has said that he would like to see no tariffs with Europe after we leave the EU and no hard border in Northern Ireland. His exact words, which were in a letter to the Treasury Committee, were that he wants a deal “that facilitates the freest and most frictionless trade possible in...
