Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Jun 2015)

James Berry: The great British jobs boom has earned the Prime Minister and the Chancellor the admiration of leaders the world over and the support of my constituents. Does my right hon. Friend agree that businesses in Kingston and Surbiton could create even more jobs if we had better train services and, particularly, Crossrail 2?

Education and Adoption Bill (22 Jun 2015)

James Berry: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker, for calling me to make my maiden speech. It is a pleasure to follow such a fine maiden speech from the hon. Member for Glasgow North West (Carol Monaghan). It will not have escaped your attention, Madam Deputy Speaker, that I am not the only Berry on these Benches. Indeed, I am not even the only J. Berry. It has become clear over the past few weeks that, if...

Business of the House: Reports into Investigatory Powers (25 Jun 2015)

James Berry: People in the UK face a range of threats to their liberty and security from terrorists and criminals on a daily basis. The police and the Security Services, in whom we put our faith to keep us safe, are not assisted in their task by the fast pace at which communications technology is advancing. Devices and applications that have become features of everyday life for our general use and...

Public Bill Committee: Education and Adoption Bill: Examination of Witnesses (30 Jun 2015)

Public Bill Committee: Education and Adoption Bill: Examination of Witnesses (30 Jun 2015)

James Berry: For constituents I have spoken to about adoption, the key concern and key failing they identify in the system is the time it takes to achieve permanency. Are you confident that the Government’s proposals in the Bill will speed up the process?

Public Bill Committee: Education and Adoption Bill: Examination of Witnesses (30 Jun 2015)

James Berry: Secondly, the first set of witnesses we heard from on the adoption part of the Bill were broadly supportive of the Government’s proposals. The second set—to the extent that they were actually opining on the Bill; in other words, adoption rather than the wider piece—did raise some concerns, one of which was that small voluntary adoption agencies might be crowded out. Can the Government...

Public Bill Committee: Education and Adoption Bill: Clause 13 - Local authority adoption functions: joint arrangements (2 Jul 2015)

James Berry: Does the hon. Gentleman recognise that the Government are, in fact, very concerned about all the different forms of  permanence? The Bill focuses on one such method—adoption—without in any way devaluing the other forms of permanence. It is appropriate to do so when, as Sir Martin Narey pointed out, there has been a massive decline in adoption since 1975.

Public Bill Committee: Education and Adoption Bill: Clause 2 - Performance standards and safety warning notices (7 Jul 2015)

James Berry: The hon. Gentleman is a former Minister, as he has reminded us, and he well knows that all Ministers have to act rationally. That is a basic common law requirement of any Minister, so his point does not take the argument any further, does it?

He made clear that...
