Royal Assent: Business of the House (7 Dec 2017)

David Morris: I am concerned about the way the Boundary Commission is operating its consultation, because 5,957 respondents—96% of all people consulted in Morecambe and Lunesdale—said they wanted to keep Morecambe and Lunesdale intact. Both parties agree that the communities of Lancaster and Morecambe should be kept separate, and since then more than 1,000 more submissions have been put in.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Court System: Modernisation (5 Dec 2017)

David Morris: What steps he is taking to modernise the court system.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Court System: Modernisation (5 Dec 2017)

David Morris: Part of the problem with the courts system is that the lay person does not understand the jargon. Will my right hon. Friend examine how we can improve communication within the system so that the ordinary man on the street can understand what is going on in court proceedings?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Homelessness and Rough Sleeping (4 Dec 2017)

David Morris: Homelessness is a very complex issue, and I am sure that everyone in the House agrees that it is something that we should not be facing. What discussions has my right hon. Friend had across Government Departments on, for instance, mental health, which is always identified as an issue in homelessness?

David Morris: There is no reason.

Hospital Car Parking Charges (Abolition): Tax Avoidance and Evasion (14 Nov 2017)

David Morris: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Hospital Car Parking Charges (Abolition): Tax Avoidance and Evasion (14 Nov 2017)

David Morris: Thank you very much, Mr Speaker. I did not expect to be called so early. I am a little at a loss about what we are trying to achieve here: is this about tax evasion or is it about offshore companies? The reality is that offshore companies are legal entities, and a lot of them, especially across the Commonwealth countries and the overseas territories, have been set up using HMRC guidelines....

Hospital Car Parking Charges (Abolition): Tax Avoidance and Evasion (14 Nov 2017)

David Morris: I would like to ask the right hon. Lady why her family firm, Stemcor, is famous for paying virtually no tax.

David Morris: What estimate he has made of the number of claimants applying for universal credit advance payments.

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

David Morris: I am keen to ensure that advance payments are made to my constituents in need, which is why I see the jobcentre and the citizens advice bureau, one after the other, every month. Does the Minister agree that the Labour party should start acting responsibly and join me in encouraging constituents to apply for this additional help, and tone down the political rhetoric, which could deter...

First World War Servicemen: Memorial Plaques (20 Oct 2017)

David Morris: indicated assent.

First World War Servicemen: Memorial Plaques (20 Oct 2017)

David Morris: A number of years ago, before I was a Member of Parliament, I went to a local car boot sale and looking through all the bric-a-brac and things from days gone by, I came across a bronze plaque. It looked for all the world like a huge old Victorian penny. It had Britannia on the front, being shadowed by a lion, there were two dolphins and, at the bottom, a smaller lion was ripping apart an...

First World War Servicemen: Memorial Plaques (20 Oct 2017)

David Morris: I thank my hon. Friend for that timely intervention, because I was welling up. He was 20 at the time of his death and was the son of Parker and Mary Jane Woodward of Rose Cottage, Halton Fenside, Spilsby, Lincolnshire. This plaque is all that is left of him—he was a person. I want to raise awareness. One day I hope that we will be able to follow Lord Ashcroft’s commendable example...

First World War Servicemen: Memorial Plaques (20 Oct 2017)

David Morris: I thank my hon. Friend for that nice story. It is right that we should commemorate. This is only part of the story, but it is fitting for those homes to bear those plaques. What is the Government’s role? The Government would like to do everything they possibly can, but it is really up to the community to recognise that the plaques mean something. I would love to see a national memorial...

Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill (20 Oct 2017)

David Morris: I have read in the newspapers—in truth, I do not know if this is correct—that when people have an AIDS test or something similar, their insurance is reviewed. Could we put in the Bill, during the Committee stage, special provision for emergency workers so they are not penalised in this way by certain insurance companies?

Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill (20 Oct 2017)

David Morris: My right hon. Friend mentioned an unfortunate skirmish in his constituency in which a police dog was attacked and killed. Does he agree that it would be pertinent for the Bill to incorporate a response to attacks on animals that work in the police force and other emergency services, so that the law could deal equally with such perpetrators?

Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

David Morris: My constituency was a pilot scheme for universal credit, and I regularly meet the jobcentre and the citizens advice bureau. The important point is that there were teething troubles in the early days, but people can now get a loan on the day. The worst wait is seven days, depending on the individual’s circumstances. The problem—if there is a problem that has to be...

Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

David Morris: rose—

Uk Plans for Leaving the EU (9 Oct 2017)

David Morris: My local chamber of commerce welcomes the two-year transition period because business is, quite simply, booming in my constituency. The chamber of commerce actually gets that. It also gets that if there is a run on the pound, as the Opposition say there will be if they ever reach government, it will create not just job losses, but interest rate increases. If I am going to criticise my Prime...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Sep 2017)

David Morris: I would like to thank the Prime Minister, because she put me in touch with her powerhouse Minister and we are now looking at getting an enterprise zone in Heysham in my constituency. Ever having a big wishlist, however, may I ask the Prime Minister whether she can help me in any way possible with my ongoing campaign to get the third nuclear power station in Heysham—the tentatively named...
