Gerald Jones: Thank you for calling me to speak in this important debate, Mr Deputy Speaker.

Universal Credit Project Assessment Reviews (5 Dec 2017)

Gerald Jones: If the hon. Gentleman had been listening, he would have heard that I welcomed those concessions earlier this afternoon, but, as I also said, they do not go far enough.

Public Sector Pay — [David Hanson in the Chair] (4 Dec 2017)

Gerald Jones: Yes, I do. It is an example of the dedication of our public sector workers but, as my hon. Friend says, is a bridge too far.
