Gerald Jones: Does my hon. Friend share my concern that the possible closure and relocation of the offices in his constituency and in mine, in Merthyr Tydfil, will have a massively detrimental effect on the local economies in small towns across the area?

Business of the House (13 Jul 2017)

Gerald Jones: The planned closure and relocation of Department for Work and Pensions offices will have a major negative impact on the local economy of towns such as Merthyr Tydfil in my constituency as well as many others across the country.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Service Accommodation (10 Jul 2017)

Gerald Jones: As we have heard, the Armed Forces Pay Review Body’s 46th report found that there was an “overwhelming view that the maintenance service provided by CarillionAmey was continuing to fall well short of the needs of Service personnel and their families.” Service families are tired of Government platitudes, so how bad do things have to get before the Government get a grip on the...

Jobcentre Plus: Closures (6 Jul 2017)

Debate on the Address: Health, Social Care and Security (28 Jun 2017)

Gerald Jones: May I first thank the people of Merthyr Tydfil and Rhymney—the constituency where I was born, raised and still belong—for doing me the honour of re-electing me to represent them in this place? As we come to the last days of debate on this year’s Gracious Speech, it is difficult to find positive things to say, mainly because the speech is devoid of detail. Clearly, this is no...

Whirlpool: Product Safety System — [Ms Joan Ryan in the Chair] (26 Apr 2017)

Gerald Jones: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Ryan. I am pleased to take part in this important debate. I congratulate my hon.

I have come to the debate because of the historical links that...

Whirlpool: Product Safety System — [Ms Joan Ryan in the Chair] (26 Apr 2017)

Gerald Jones: Well, it certainly is in parts of Wales; so many of my constituents rely on tumble dryers, and many of those are made by Whirlpool, which owns the Hotpoint, Indesit and Creda brands. Figures from South Wales Fire and Rescue Service show that over the past two years seven fires have been caused by tumble dryers in Merthyr Tydfil and Rhymney. Across south Wales there have been 43 fires, with...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Leaving the EU: Effect on Wales (26 Apr 2017)

Gerald Jones: The Prime Minister has said that she is prepared to walk away from the negotiating table without a trade deal with the EU, and the Foreign Secretary has said that no deal would be no problem. Yet no deal, as we have heard, could see tariffs of 30% to 40% on Welsh dairy farmers and meat producers, and 10% tariffs on Welsh car manufacturers. Is it not the case that this Tory Government are...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Exiting the EU: Public Finances (18 Apr 2017)

Gerald Jones: After that party political broadcast on behalf of the Conservative party, may I ask the Chancellor a very serious question? Many billions of pounds of EU structural funds are invested annually in the UK, particularly in our deprived areas and regions.

Personal Independence Payment: Regulations (29 Mar 2017)

Royal Assent: Business of the House (16 Mar 2017)

Gerald Jones: Recently, I asked the Prime Minister whether she would at the very least exempt older people from the local housing allowance cap that is being introduced for social housing tenants in 2019. Unfortunately, she did not seem to understand the question, so to assist her—and, more importantly, to avoid causing undue hardship to thousands of people across the country—may we have a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Veterans: Civilian Workforce (13 Mar 2017)

Gerald Jones: Our veterans are some of the most hard-working, dedicated and experienced men and women any employer could ask for, yet many of us have heard troubling stories of discrimination against former servicemen and women in the jobs market.
