Business Banking Fraud — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (9 Oct 2018)

Jo Stevens: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for giving way and for his reference to my constituent, Mr Shabir. In Mr Shabir’s case, not only was a gagging order presented to him, but he also has a legal opinion from Queen’s counsel saying that a criminal fraud has been committed against him. That is exactly the sort of circumstance that the hon. Gentleman is talking about.

Business Banking Fraud — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (9 Oct 2018)

Jo Stevens: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Robertson. I thank the hon. Member for Hazel Grove (Mr Wragg) for securing the debate. It is a pleasure to speak after him. I have raised the plight of my constituent, Mr Kashif Shabir, for many years. His case is about corporate collusion between Lloyds bank and a firm of receivers in Bristol, Alder King, which was embedded in the...

Colombia Peace Process — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (12 Sep 2018)

Jo Stevens: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship again today, Mr Robertson. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Rhondda (Chris Bryant) on securing this debate at a really important time. I do not think that I can emulate his Spanish accent, but his speech really was excellent. I should say that I visited Colombia last month alongside Justice for Colombia, which paid for my...

Colombia Peace Process — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (12 Sep 2018)

Jo Stevens: Thank you, Mr Robertson. I will wrap up with a few questions to the Minister. I agree with the point made by my hon. Friend, and I hope that the Minister will address it. It was one of the things I was going to ask him about. I have three questions. Will the Minister make representations to the Colombian Government about the conditions in which Jesús Santrich is being held, and...

Colombia Peace Process — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (12 Sep 2018)

Jo Stevens: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this really important debate. Does he agree that there are some areas where the FARC were previously in control and have been moved out as part of reincorporation, so there is now a space for these dissident groups to fill and that is creating the sort of dangers and the climate whereby criminality and the number of murders are rapidly rising? There...

Ceramics (Country of Origin Marking): Civil Liability Bill [Lords] (4 Sep 2018)

Jo Stevens: May I refer the House to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests? I should put on the record that my partner is a solicitor and chief executive of a personal injury law firm. Before being elected, I spent 27 years advising and representing injury victims in the civil courts. I acted for victims both in cases worth just a few hundred pounds and in cases worth all the way...

Ceramics (Country of Origin Marking): Civil Liability Bill [Lords] (4 Sep 2018)

Jo Stevens: Will the Secretary of State elaborate on his last remark? What incentives or restrictions will there be for insurance companies to make sure that they pass on any savings? Historically, they have not done so.

Ceramics (Country of Origin Marking): Civil Liability Bill [Lords] (4 Sep 2018)

Jo Stevens: If the Secretary of State is so confident about those increases in the small claims limit, why are they not on the face of the Bill?

Leaving the EU: Women’s Rights (4 Sep 2018)

Jo Stevens: Will the Minister explain why, in the so-called impact assessments that I read in the reading room, there is reference to the “opportunities” that leaving the European Union brings in relation to the working time directive? Those sound to me like opportunities to water it down.

Leaving the EU: Women’s Rights (4 Sep 2018)

Jo Stevens: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing the debate. She mentioned social care and the preponderance of women in the sector. Through membership of the EU, women have also gained rights to part-time and flexible working, which are particularly important to the 6.2 million women who work part time because they have caring responsibilities. Does she agree that there is a double whammy of social...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (4 Sep 2018)

Jo Stevens: I thank the Minister of State for Europe and the Americas for meeting me just before recess to hear my concerns about the Colombian peace process. I visited Congressman- Elect Jesus Santrich in prison in Bogota last month. He has been on a 41-day hunger strike. He is very frail, and has been denied access to doctors and to medication—the only medication that he has had is through his...

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...
