Business of the House (22 Mar 2018)

Jo Stevens: This week the Cardiff rugby heritage museum was launched, with over 800 items of rugby memorabilia from each season since 1876. Will the Leader of the House join me in congratulating the dedicated volunteers of CF10 Rugby Trust, whose love of Cardiff rugby and history has made this happen? May we have a debate on the great game of rugby?

Attorney General: Crown Prosecution Service: Disclosure Obligations (22 Mar 2018)

Jo Stevens: What recent discussions he has had with Cabinet colleagues on the resources available to the CPS to fulfil its disclosure obligations.

Attorney General: Crown Prosecution Service: Disclosure Obligations (22 Mar 2018)

Jo Stevens: With so much communication on digital platforms, disclosure is becoming more time-consuming, and without proper resources we cannot have an effective disclosure process. What is the Attorney General going to do about it?

Other Proceedings: Welsh Affairs (19 Mar 2018)

Jo Stevens: I am always reminded of the benefits of mindfulness when I listen to the hon. Member for Monmouth (David T. C. Davies), and then follow him. Wales, as we know, has a very proud history and tradition. When I was thinking about the debate today, however, I decided to focus on the future, and, in particular, on the role of young people in Wales—especially those close to home, in my...

Other Proceedings: Welsh Affairs (19 Mar 2018)

Jo Stevens: I thoroughly endorse what my hon. Friend has said. We know that when such incidents happen in Cardiff, which, sadly, they do from time to time, the whole community turns out in support of our fight against them. When I walk through Cardiff Central, past the neoclassical buildings of Cathays Park or the modern, striking architecture of the University of South Wales, or Cardiff Met, I see those...

Other Proceedings: Welsh Affairs (19 Mar 2018)

Jo Stevens: My hon. Friend is absolutely right, and that permeates much of what the Welsh Labour Government do, such as working through the social partnership with trade unions in Wales on public services and with the NUS in Wales on education. All of this matters because, although Cardiff has three excellent universities, it also has postcodes and catchment areas that contain some of the highest levels...

Other Proceedings: Welsh Affairs (19 Mar 2018)

Jo Stevens: As much as we are all enjoying the tour around the Secretary of State’s Outlook diary and the various visits and meetings he has had, in that time he could have made a decision with his Cabinet colleagues about the Swansea tidal lagoon. It is over a year since the Hendry report; when will we hear a result and a decision?

Cambridge Analytica: Data Privacy (19 Mar 2018)

Jo Stevens: The chairman of the Electoral Commission, Sir John Holmes, openly warned at the end of last year that a perfect storm is putting our democratic processes in peril. He called for urgent steps to deliver transparency around political advertising. Will the Secretary of State now answer that call as a priority?

Refugees (Family Reunion) (No.2) Bill (16 Mar 2018)

Jo Stevens: I am here to support the hon. Gentleman’s Bill wholeheartedly, on behalf of many of my constituents—of all political persuasions—in Cardiff Central, a city of sanctuary, who have written to me about it. I do not have any concerns about the Bill, but if any Members do, I hope they will leave them until Committee and support the Bill today.

Hate Crime (12 Mar 2018)

Jo Stevens: The Minister has referred several times to the £2.4 million of funding under the Government’s anti-hate scheme. She has also said that just 45 places of worship have received funding. Are there any plans to increase the amount of funding and the number of places of worship that will attract funding this year?

Overseas Electors Bill (23 Feb 2018)

Jo Stevens: I do not understand why, if it was in the Conservative party manifesto to introduce this legislation, we are here today debating a private Member’s Bill. Does my hon. Friend agree that the Government could have taken the opportunity to have an all-encompassing electoral reform Bill to include automatic voter registration, votes at 16 and online voting, as well as extending the lifetime...

Overseas Electors Bill (23 Feb 2018)

Jo Stevens: Will the Minister give way?

Overseas Electors Bill (23 Feb 2018)

Jo Stevens: rose—

Overseas Electors Bill (23 Feb 2018)

Jo Stevens: What makes a 16-year-old woman in this country any less valuable than a 70-year-old woman living in Spain who is a British national? That woman has a vote, but the 16-year-old woman does not.

Overseas Electors Bill (23 Feb 2018)

Jo Stevens: On the security of the register and ensuring that everyone who is eligible is on the register and leaving aside the 15-year rule for overseas voters, there will be an opportunity for the Government to support my Automatic Electoral Registration (No. 2) Bill when it comes before the House on 27 April. Does my hon. Friend agree that that might address some of his concerns?

Overseas Electors Bill (23 Feb 2018)

Jo Stevens: I am struggling to understand why there is such support from the Government Benches for extending the franchise, with mention of 1 million more being able to vote, yet 16 and 17-year-olds are being denied the vote in elections here at the very same time. Will the hon. Gentleman deal with that point?

PRAYERS - [Mr Speaker in the Chair] : Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill — [Mr Speaker in the Chair] (23 Feb 2018)

Jo Stevens: I am here to support the Bill, but, as a Wales Member, I want to provide some reassurance. Wales already has legislation that has been working and that deals specifically with that point, and we have a higher donation rate than any other nation in the UK. I welcome the Bill, and I hope that everyone present will support it today.

Carillion: TUPE — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (21 Feb 2018)

Jo Stevens: Does my hon. Friend agree that this is an ideal opportunity for the Minister to confirm that TUPE, which obviously derives from the European Union’s acquired rights directive, will be maintained after Brexit, and that voluntary TUPE in these circumstances, to protect Carillion workers, could be offered as a commitment of that for the future?

Carillion: TUPE — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (21 Feb 2018)

Jo Stevens: The hon. Gentleman mentions the Government taking responsibility and not standing back and doing nothing. Does he agree that, given the company’s three profit warnings, the Government should have done something before the collapse?

Carillion: TUPE — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (21 Feb 2018)

Jo Stevens: Does not the sorry story of Carillion’s collapse illustrate exactly why there should be proper oversight of public sector contracts that are put out to private companies? We have seen problems in the Ministry of Justice with G4S and in the Home Office with Clearsprings. We should set the standard for employment terms and conditions through procurement. Does my hon. Friend agree that...
