Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Accommodation Model (11 Jun 2018)

Gerald Jones: Thank you, Mr Speaker. The affordability of the future accommodation model relies heavily on the present rent adjustment on the Annington Homes estate. As we know, that is due to be renegotiated for 2021, with expectations that rents will rise significantly. The Tories were warned in 1996 that the sell-off of married quarters was a mistake, and that is exactly hot it has transpired. What...

Marks & Spencer (24 May 2018)

Gerald Jones: As we know, the retail sector predominantly employs women. What can the Government do to support them during this process and to ensure that they are not disproportionately affected by the closures?

Business of the House (24 May 2018)

Gerald Jones: The Department for Work and Pensions recently announced the closure of its offices in Merthyr Tydfil, which will have a massively serious impact on the town centre economy. That is also happening in other areas of Wales and the UK. Can we have a debate on the Government policy of removing jobs where more jobs are needed, not fewer, so that the Government can understand the implications of...

NHS 70th Anniversary — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (16 May 2018)

Gerald Jones: I thank my hon. Friend for giving way and congratulate him on his passionate speech that marks this historic anniversary and the part that his constituency and the wider south Wales region played in the formation of the NHS. Does he agree that in order to tackle our modern health challenges it is important that we have further investment and that the UK Government match the Welsh...

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (16 May 2018)

Gerald Jones: Estimates show that 4,000 people in the five pilot areas were turned away because they did not have the required ID, so will the Government now abandon their plans for voter ID?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (15 May 2018)

Gerald Jones: While I greatly welcome the fact that democratic and peaceful elections have been held in Iraq, the results and outcome are far from certain. Will the Foreign Secretary give his assessment of the future stability and security—and future direction—of Iraq?

DWP Offices Closures: Merthyr Tydfil — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (9 May 2018)

Gerald Jones: Does the Minister recognise that the Welsh Assembly’s “Our Valleys, Our Future” strategy is about bringing new jobs to the south Wales valleys, not relocating jobs from existing communities, thus decimating the economies of those town centres?

DWP Offices Closures: Merthyr Tydfil — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (9 May 2018)

Gerald Jones: The Minister mentioned the discussions with staff and the impact assessments for those staff. Will he give us more information as to when those impact assessments are likely to take place? As I said, it would have been advantageous to the Department for that to have been done before the final decision was made—a case of the proverbial stable door being bolted after the horse has gone....

DWP Offices Closures: Merthyr Tydfil — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (9 May 2018)

Gerald Jones: I beg to move, That this House has considered the proposed closure of DWP offices in Merthyr Tydfil. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr McCabe. Early in 2017, the Department for Work and Pensions announced that it intended to close many of its offices, sites, and jobcentres across the UK. About 250 staff work in the DWP office in Merthyr Tydfil town centre, and they clearly...

DWP Offices Closures: Merthyr Tydfil — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (9 May 2018)

Gerald Jones: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention. I agree with his point, and will comment on that further in the course of my contribution. Job opportunities for local people would be limited if the DWP pulls out of Merthyr Tydfil. Such a proposal goes against what I believe the Government should be doing: helping to support local communities, the local economy and local jobs. The proposed move...

DWP Offices Closures: Merthyr Tydfil — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (9 May 2018)

Gerald Jones: I agree with my hon. Friend. His point, similar to that made by other colleagues, highlights the fact that many towns across the south Wales valleys are in a similar position. Their local economies are supported by such jobs, and any move to remove them would be detrimental.

DWP Offices Closures: Merthyr Tydfil — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (9 May 2018)

Gerald Jones: My hon. Friend makes a valuable point. I see Newport as part of the south Wales economic area. Job losses in that community would have a similar effect there as they do in other areas across south Wales.

DWP Offices Closures: Merthyr Tydfil — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (9 May 2018)

Gerald Jones: Again, my hon. Friend makes an interesting point. I will come on to some of the travel pressures that I have recently experienced myself. As I said, the closure would have an impact on the surrounding communities across the heads of the valleys —an area trying its best to regenerate itself amid ongoing austerity pressures, which have created a difficult financial situation for our area.

DWP Offices Closures: Merthyr Tydfil — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (9 May 2018)

Gerald Jones: The geography of south Wales is quite unique and daily people have to navigate the transport difficulties to which my hon. Friends have alluded on a daily basis. There are huge difficulties in access across valleys and from parts of south Wales to others and the transport links need to be addressed. If the closures go ahead, they will decimate the economies of town centres across south-east...

DWP Offices Closures: Merthyr Tydfil — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (9 May 2018)

Gerald Jones: I wholeheartedly agree. My hon. Friend’s point reinforces the point about having access to quality jobs and services in local communities. The plans for the Merthyr Tydfil office have caused real concern in my community. The workforce are clearly concerned. The local and regional branches of the PCS union have raised objections. I and a number of Parliamentary colleagues from across...

Office for Product Safety and Standards — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (9 May 2018)

Gerald Jones: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir David. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Swansea East (Carolyn Harris) on securing this debate on the new Office for Product Safety and Standards and on the powerful case she has set out. The Minister may know that my interest in these issues stems from my constituency’s historical links to white goods manufacturing. I...
