Business of the House (21 Jun 2018)

Bob Blackman: It is clearly excellent news that the NHS is going to get additional funding, but can I urge my right hon. Friend to stage a debate in Government time so that we can explore not only what the priorities will be for the national health service, but how savings can be made by using such opportunities as International Yoga Day, which is today? I remind colleagues that there are sessions in...

Public Bill Committee: Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation and Liability for Housing Standards) Bill: Extent, commencement and short title (20 Jun 2018)

Bob Blackman: I echo the appreciation and thanks expressed to the hon. Member for Westminster North for introducing the Bill. She tabled an amendment to my private Member’s Bill that helped vulnerable people being offered accommodation by local authorities, to ensure that their homes were fit for habitation. That was a complementary move, and I strongly support today’s Bill. I have a few...

Public Bill Committee: Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation and Liability for Housing Standards) Bill: Fitness for human habitation (20 Jun 2018)

Bob Blackman: This is an excellent Bill, which I think we all support strongly. One issue that has raised concerns is the definition of “fitness” and who decides whether a building is fit or not. Is it the individual who has the lease or is it the landlord? Who makes that decision? Is there agreement on that matter with the Government and the Minister?

Backbench Business: UK-Romanian Relations — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (19 Jun 2018)

Bob Blackman: I thank every hon. Member who has participated in this welcome debate—particularly the Minister, who was widely praised even before he spoke. It is important that we send out a strong message to our citizens in the United Kingdom, to Romanian citizens in the United Kingdom and to our friends in Romania that we want a strong bilateral arrangement and relations going forward and that...

Backbench Business: UK-Romanian Relations — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (19 Jun 2018)

Backbench Business: UK-Romanian Relations — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (19 Jun 2018)

Bob Blackman: Clearly, an important part of the UK strategy is to form strong bilateral arrangements with our friends and neighbours from across the European Union. However, I am keen to highlight the importance of this particular strategic relationship, which existed long before Romania joined the European Union and NATO. It is clearly exposed to Russia, particularly in the Black sea region, and there are...

Backbench Business: UK-Romanian Relations — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (19 Jun 2018)

Bob Blackman: I shall come on to the question of the number of people leaving Romania and coming to this country in a few moments, but the clear concern in Romania is that the young people who leave are not yet returning in any number. They may return in future, and it is true that in certain countries, such as Poland, people have started to return and to invest. A number of people who are resident in the...

Business of the House (14 Jun 2018)

Bob Blackman: Next Thursday is the International Day of Yoga. We have a series of events for Members, including open-air yoga in Victoria Gardens and yoga in Committee Room 14—and, I believe, in a Committee Room in the House of Lords. You might choose, Mr Speaker, to exercise another sanction on Members who get excited in the Chamber on that day. May we have a debate in Government time on the...

Rolls-Royce Redundancies (14 Jun 2018)

Galileo Programme (14 Jun 2018)

Bob Blackman: What discussions have the Government had with non-EU NATO allies on the possibility of a NATO-wide scheme, which would actually suit Britain quite well?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Jun 2018)

Bob Blackman: Very sadly, my constituent Gena Turgel lost her life last week, aged 95. Gena survived the Krakow ghetto, Auschwitz-Birkenau and Buchenwald, and she became known as the bride of Belsen when she married her liberator. Will my right hon. Friend join me in celebrating the life of Gena, who dedicated her life to informing young people about the horrors of the holocaust, and in ensuring that,...

Business of the House (7 Jun 2018)

Bob Blackman: This Sunday will see the annual al-Quds demonstration and march. The Home Secretary and police say that they are powerless to stop the flags of the terrorist organisations Hamas and Hezbollah being openly displayed on the streets of London. May we therefore have a debate in Government time on proscribing the entirety of Hezbollah and Hamas so that the police can then take action against these...

Will she undertake to the House to consult all the parties in Northern Ireland, in the light of this court judgment, on what should happen for the future?

Heathrow (7 Jun 2018)

Bob Blackman: Will my hon. Friend confirm that the offers made to both other competing bids were exactly the same as is now on the table for Heathrow, that there have been no changes to the offer and that Heathrow has not been advantaged as a result?
