Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Immigration and Nationality: Fees (16 Jul 2018)

Chris Stephens: Whether he plans to change the fees for immigration and nationality applications; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Immigration and Nationality: Fees (16 Jul 2018)

Chris Stephens: The Minister will be aware that immigration fees for limited leave to remain have increased by 79% in four years to £1,033 per person, with no reduction for children. Does she appreciate that the cost can be crippling for families with a number of children going through that process, and will she at the very least look at reducing fees for children so that they cover processing alone?

Forced Adoption in the Uk: Carillion (12 Jul 2018)

Chris Stephens: First, I thank the hon. Member for Leeds West (Rachel Reeves) for securing this debate. It was a pleasure to be on the joint inquiry, chaired by the hon. Lady and the right hon. Member for Birkenhead (Frank Field). All I can say, having sat on that inquiry, is that the evidence revealed at every session was a real eye-opener. The report stands as one of the most damning indictments of the...

Forced Adoption in the Uk: Carillion (12 Jul 2018)

Chris Stephens: The hon. Lady is making an excellent speech so far. Does she agree that one of the Committee’s concern was that the companies that were being taken over all had sick pension schemes and that the Pensions Regulator should have been asking serious questions at that point?

Business of the House (12 Jul 2018)

Chris Stephens: Wednesday 18 July will be the centenary of the birth of the great Nelson Mandela. Will the Leader of the House allow time on 18 July for us to debate the life of Nelson Mandela and the role of the anti-apartheid movement in the United Kingdom? Will she commend the Nelson Mandela Scottish Memorial Foundation, which is fundraising for a statue of Nelson Mandela to be erected in the great city...

Chris Stephens: rose—

Defence Industry and Shipbuilding (11 Jul 2018)

Chris Stephens: I will try my best to keep my remarks to four minutes, Mr Speaker. First, may I welcome the trade union representatives from the Clyde shipyards? Such is their passion for the industry that they have come down to London today to hear this debate. The debate so far can be summed up by paraphrasing that great conservative icon Lord Vader because, “We want these ships, not excuses.”...

Defence Industry and Shipbuilding (11 Jul 2018)

Chris Stephens: Again, the Minister is shouting from a sedentary position. The MOD website is full of the vital military components used by the Royal Fleet Auxiliary, which is why these ships should be built in the United Kingdom in a modular way—the same way as the Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier.

Defence Industry and Shipbuilding (11 Jul 2018)

Chris Stephens: rose—

Defence Industry and Shipbuilding (11 Jul 2018)

Chris Stephens: I thank my hon. Friend. Is he aware of recent press releases from the Ministry of Defence in relation to the MARS contract that the Minister talked about earlier? One says: “The tanker is expected in Falmouth next spring when she will start military customisation.”

Defence Industry and Shipbuilding (11 Jul 2018)

Chris Stephens: I thank the Minister for promoting modular build in the UK. If modular build is good enough for the Type 31 frigate, surely it is good enough for fleet support ships, which could be built in the UK on the same basis.

Defence Industry and Shipbuilding (11 Jul 2018)

Chris Stephens: Will the Minister give way?

Defence Industry and Shipbuilding (11 Jul 2018)

Chris Stephens: Will the Minister give way?

Defence Industry and Shipbuilding (11 Jul 2018)

Chris Stephens: The Minister is very generous. What did John Parker’s report recommend for how the fleet support ships should be built? I am very curious. Can he tell us what the Parker report says about fleet support ships and the exact page on which it says that?

Defence Industry and Shipbuilding (11 Jul 2018)

Chris Stephens: Is it not the case that if the fleet solid support ships were built in the UK, 20% of that cost could be recovered by the workers working on those ships paying tax and national insurance?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Jul 2018)

Chris Stephens: If she will list her official engagements for Wednesday 11 July.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Jul 2018)

Chris Stephens: As someone who supports the principle of independence for England, I have no problem in supporting England tonight. I thank the Minister for his role in helping to secure a public inquiry into contaminated blood. My constituent Cathy Young and many infected blood campaigners, however, remain concerned that the inquiry will be delayed, like Chilcot, by those who may have a case to answer...
