Surgical Mesh Implants — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (18 Oct 2017)

Jo Stevens: On that point about the loophole between the NHS and the private sector, and the relationship and liability of private surgeons operating at private hospitals, will the Minister see whether that loophole should be closed?

Surgical Mesh Implants — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (18 Oct 2017)

Jo Stevens: Many mesh implants have been fitted at private hospitals rather than NHS hospitals, and we know from the recent case of convicted breast surgeon Ian Paterson that in those circumstances private hospitals deny liability for private surgeons carrying out operations on their premises. Does my hon. Friend agree that that loophole, allowing private healthcare companies to operate under different...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Study Visas (16 Oct 2017)

Jo Stevens: What proportion of international students in the UK have been found to have overstayed their study visa.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Study Visas (16 Oct 2017)

Jo Stevens: If or, as seems likely, when Britain crashes out of the EU with no deal, what will happen to international students here on the Erasmus+ programme, many of whom are in my constituency of Cardiff Central, at the point of exit?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (16 Oct 2017)

Jo Stevens: This month, Amnesty International accused the Government of breaching international law on account of the increasing number of asylum seekers, including unaccompanied children in particular, being deported to Afghanistan. Last year was the deadliest year on record for civilians there; this year, over 5,000 people have already been killed. Will the Minister commit to changing current Home...

Attorney General: Serious Fraud Office (14 Sep 2017)

Jo Stevens: What plans the Government have for the future of the Serious Fraud Office.

Attorney General: Serious Fraud Office (14 Sep 2017)

Jo Stevens: Blockbuster funding can make up a significant amount of SFO funding. Does the Attorney General agree that it would be better to have a greater level of permanent funding?

Sky/Fox Merger (12 Sep 2017)

Jo Stevens: I, too, welcome the Secretary of State’s statement. May I press her again on that point? She said earlier that the consultation outcome will be published “shortly”. When is shortly going to be?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Transport Infrastructure (6 Sep 2017)

Jo Stevens: What discussions he has had with Cabinet colleagues on transport infrastructure in Wales in the last 12 months.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Transport Infrastructure (6 Sep 2017)

Jo Stevens: Has the Secretary of State specifically discussed with his Cabinet colleagues funding for the redevelopment of Cardiff Central station in my constituency? Will there be redevelopment funding—yes or no?

Business of the House (20 Jul 2017)

Jo Stevens: Currently, it is taking a minimum of 48 weeks for people appealing Home Office decisions denying them asylum status to have their appeal heard. When they get a date, it is many months ahead. This is completely unacceptable. During that time, they cannot work or contribute to the UK economy, as many of them are capable of doing and wish to do. Can we have a debate in Government time, as soon...

Petition - Climate Change Objectives and Obligations: Tesco House, Cardiff: Job Losses (19 Jul 2017)

Jo Stevens: Is the Minister aware that this is the largest single number of job losses that has been announced in Wales for a decade? About 100 of my constituents are affected by the decision, and they will be very disappointed that the Minister batted away the point made by my hon. Friend the Member for High Peak (Ruth George) about the consultation period. Will she please reconsider, and talk to her...

Petition - Climate Change Objectives and Obligations: Tesco House, Cardiff: Job Losses (19 Jul 2017)

Jo Stevens: One way in which Tesco could assist these staff members is not to make them redundant six weeks before they qualify for their annual bonus payment. Does the Minister agree that such behaviour should be discouraged?

Petition - Climate Change Objectives and Obligations: Tesco House, Cardiff: Job Losses (19 Jul 2017)

Jo Stevens: I am grateful to my hon. Friend and parliamentary neighbour for securing this debate. According to last year’s Tesco accounts, the chief executive, Dave Lewis, was given a £4.15 million pay package, of which £2.4 million was a bonus. Does my hon. Friend agree that he could have taken a little bit less and the company could have kept a few more of those jobs? Every little helps.

Petition - Climate Change Objectives and Obligations: Tesco House, Cardiff: Job Losses (19 Jul 2017)

Jo Stevens: My hon. Friend is being very generous with her time. When she and I met staff at Tesco, the point about outsourcing was raised. We heard that work had been outsourced for the past 12 months and that when people left Tesco House, they were not being replaced. Does she share my concern about the lack of transparency from Tesco management about where the work is going, because the number of jobs...

Queen’s Speech: Implications for Wales — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (19 Jul 2017)

Jo Stevens: I thank you, Mr Howarth, for your robust chairmanship this morning. I also thank all hon. Members on this side of the House who contributed to an excellent debate. The fact that we have debated much that was not in the Queen’s Speech for Wales but should have been is indicative of the current Government’s attitude, as is the fact that we have had no contributions whatever from...

Queen’s Speech: Implications for Wales — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (19 Jul 2017)

Jo Stevens: If the point really is about providing certainty, why include all the Henry VIII powers in the repeal Bill? That is what is leading to the mistrust. We believe—we are certain—that the Government will try to change EU law as it comes back into UK law.

Queen’s Speech: Implications for Wales — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (19 Jul 2017)

Jo Stevens: I beg to move, That this House has considered Wales and the Queen’s Speech. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Howarth. I am delighted to see so many Welsh Labour colleagues on the Opposition Benches; what a shame that there are no Conservative colleagues here to speak from the Government Benches. In the Gracious Speech on 21 June, the Queen said: “A priority...

Queen’s Speech: Implications for Wales — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (19 Jul 2017)

Jo Stevens: I absolutely agree; it is nothing more than a bung to the Democratic Unionist party to hold up a minority Government. In her briefing on the Queen’s Speech, the Prime Minister said that “this Government will do everything in our power to build a more united nation and strengthen our precious union of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. We will take seriously our...

Queen’s Speech: Implications for Wales — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (19 Jul 2017)

Jo Stevens: The hon. Gentleman raises an interesting point. I know that there has been commentary from the Welsh First Minister about whether it needs to be reviewed. Perhaps the Minister will deal with that in his response. The paucity of the Government’s programme for this two-year parliamentary Session was laid bare in the Queen’s Speech. Much of the Conservative party manifesto was...
