Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Cross-border Rail Services (18 Jul 2018)

Jo Stevens: My constituents were promised electric trains running into Cardiff Central by last year. This week, we found out that they will not even be coming into Cardiff Central by the end of next year. When will the Minister sort out the shambles that is the Great Western Railway line from London to Cardiff?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Taylor Review of Modern Working Practices (17 Jul 2018)

Jo Stevens: What progress he has made on planned consultations on (a) employment status, (b) agency workers and (c) enforcement of employment rights as a result of the recommendations of the Taylor review of modern working practices.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Taylor Review of Modern Working Practices (17 Jul 2018)

Jo Stevens: Rather than simplify employment law, the Taylor review has recommended introducing yet another category of workers, so we will have three tiers with different employment protections. The EU directive on transparent and predictable working that is currently being considered provides an EU-wide definition of workers, clarity and transparency, and the right to a written statement of terms and...

Equal Franchise Act 1928 — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (5 Jul 2018)

Jo Stevens: Will the Minister give way?

Equal Franchise Act 1928 — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (5 Jul 2018)

Jo Stevens: The Minister specifically mentioned allowing people to participate in democracy. Would it not be a wonderful thing on this anniversary to give 16 and 17-year-olds the right to vote?

Equal Franchise Act 1928 — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (5 Jul 2018)

Jo Stevens: The Labour party has the highest proportion of female MPs, which has been achieved through all-women shortlists—a mechanism that was put in place to make that change. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that similar mechanisms should be put in place across all political parties?

Equal Franchise Act 1928 — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (5 Jul 2018)

Jo Stevens: Does my hon. Friend share my view that although it is brilliant to see the statue of Millicent Fawcett in Parliament Square, it would be as good to see a statue of Sylvia on Clerkenwell Green?

Equal Franchise Act 1928 — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (5 Jul 2018)

Jo Stevens: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing the debate. The first general election in which women could stand as candidates was in 1918; then, one female stood in Wales. Last year, 66 candidates in Wales were women, but only 11 of Wales’ 40 MPs are women. Does she agree that we still have a long way to go to achieve parity with our male colleagues?

Business of the House (5 Jul 2018)

Jo Stevens: Refugee families with young children settled in schools in Cardiff Central are being moved hundreds of miles around the country with just a few days’ notice because of a shortage of outsourced Home Office accommodation, which undoes all the good work that teachers and teaching assistants do to help these most vulnerable of children. Please can we have a statement from the Home Secretary...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Passenger Rail Usage (5 Jul 2018)

Jo Stevens: What recent assessment he has made of trends in passenger rail usage.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Passenger Rail Usage (5 Jul 2018)

Jo Stevens: Rail passenger usage is falling. Is it any wonder that my constituents in Cardiff Central are giving up on using the trains, when a standard return rail ticket to London for a morning meeting costs £235? With that money, they could fly from our Welsh Labour Government-owned Cardiff airport to Barcelona and back three times and still have change for a taxi home.

Football: Safe Standing — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (25 Jun 2018)

Jo Stevens: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Robertson. I should start by declaring an interest as an officer of the all-party parliamentary group for football supporters, as the Football Supporters Federation has been the driving force behind the campaign to allow standing safely at premiership and championship grounds in England and Wales. I have canvassed the views of football...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Sports-related Tourism (21 Jun 2018)

Jo Stevens: My constituency is famous for its sport and for its sporting venues. We would love more sports tourism, but the failure of the Government to invest in the redevelopment of our railway station, the dreadful service on the Great Western Railway main line from London and the refusal to devolve air passenger duty are preventing an increase in sports tourism. What is the Minister going to do to...

Attorney General: Public Legal Education (21 Jun 2018)

Jo Stevens: I agree with the Solicitor General that public legal education is important, so how would he explain to the public what has gone wrong with prosecution disclosure? Who is responsible?

Confidence in the Secretary of State for Transport (19 Jun 2018)

Jo Stevens: Does my hon. Friend agree that there is a pattern of behaviour here? Before the 2015 election, when the right hon. Member for Epsom and Ewell (Chris Grayling) was Lord Chancellor, Labour wrote to say that there should be no more privatisation contracts in the probation service. The right hon. Gentleman ignored that, because he did not want to accept that Labour was right about the disaster...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Heathrow Expansion: Benefits for Wales (13 Jun 2018)

Jo Stevens: Does the Secretary of State agree that the demand for the Heathrow rail spur link is of paramount importance now, and that the original date for implementation and opening of 2020 should be adhered to?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Jun 2018)

Jo Stevens: It is almost a year since the Government promised their domestic violence and abuse Bill, and the publication of that Bill will trigger a cross-party amendment that has widespread support to decriminalise abortion across the whole of the UK, which is long overdue. Will the Bill be published before the summer recess, and will the Prime Minister give a commitment today on the Floor of the House...

Offences Against the Person Act 1861 (5 Jun 2018)

Jo Stevens: Every man in this Chamber has control and choice over their reproductive healthcare. Every man in this Chamber can have a vasectomy if they wish to do so, without the threat of prosecution. As a woman, I have no control or choice. Does my hon. Friend agree that, for all the complexities of the Northern Ireland political situation, this is a matter of equality and human rights?
