Exiting the European Union: Economic and Social Rights (19 Jul 2018)

Paul Blomfield: The Minister rightly points out that the White Paper proposes non-regression clauses on environment regulations and on social and employment protections.

He took exception to the agency workers regulation, for example, on the...

Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill: Future Relationship Between the UK and the EU (18 Jul 2018)

Paul Blomfield: After the last couple of days, today’s debate has something of the feel of the morning after the night before. Indeed, it has been a sobering debate, reflecting the depth of the crisis that we are in. Two years on from the referendum, the Government are still unable to speak on behalf of the British people. The most important negotiations the country has faced since the second world war...

Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill: Future Relationship Between the UK and the EU (18 Jul 2018)

Paul Blomfield: I will not, because I have answered the hon. Gentleman’s points and we cannot get into a detailed exchange. The result of the Prime Minister’s approach has been paralysis, not simply on Brexit but on the other crises facing our country. The Government have neither the authority to deal with Brexit nor the ability to tackle the issues that led to it. There has been a dawning...

Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill: Future Relationship Between the UK and the EU (18 Jul 2018)

Paul Blomfield: No, I will not; I have not the time. I would love to, but I have not the time. As I say, it is beginning to look as if there is a secondment scheme. So we may yet see the hon. Member for North East Somerset (Mr Rees-Mogg) make his way down to the Front Bench—or perhaps he thinks he has more power where he is. Sixteen months into the negotiations, the White Paper says that the...

Homelessness among Refugees — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (17 Jul 2018)

Paul Blomfield: My hon. Friend is describing a situation that we certainly experience in Sheffield.

Visit of President Trump: Policing (12 Jul 2018)

Paul Blomfield: While recognising the real importance of our relationship with the United States and the deep bonds that we have with the American people, should we not be celebrating the fact that so many people across the country are preparing to take a stand against this President, his views and his policies? On the question of policing, I have met South Yorkshire police leadership twice over the last...

Immigration: Pausing the Hostile Environment (12 Jul 2018)

Paul Blomfield: One aspect of the hostile environment that sets the UK apart is the overdependence on the use of immigration detention—in particular, the lack of a time limit on detention. This House endorsed a recommendation from a cross-party inquiry seeking an end to indefinite detention and a greater use of community-based alternatives. What consideration is the Minister giving to that...
