Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (24 May 2016)

James Berry: If he will make a statement on his departmental responsibilities.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (24 May 2016)

James Berry: Last year, after the Prime Minister’s historic visit to Jaffna, the UN Human Rights Council passed a consensual resolution on accountability and reconciliation, following the atrocities at the end of the Sir Lankan civil war. When the resolution comes back before the UN in June, will our Government do whatever they can to ensure that Sri Lanka lives up to its promises? Progress to date has...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Pension Schemes: Younger Workers (9 May 2016)

James Berry: What steps he has taken to increase the number of younger workers subscribing to pension schemes.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Pension Schemes: Younger Workers (9 May 2016)

James Berry: Having spent time with charities and high street banks in Kingston, I have been surprised by the low level of financial literacy they report, even among people with secondary and tertiary education. What steps will the Government take to ensure that young people receive the high-quality information and guidance they need, particularly on pension planning, which often feels a long way off to...

Backbench Business - Education Funding in Londonbackbench Business (4 May 2016)

James Berry: Does the hon. Lady accept that the increase in house prices in outer London as well as inner London means that the difficulty in recruiting teachers affects the whole of London? The distinction between inner and outer London is no longer a good one, given the increase in house prices across the city as a whole.

Backbench Business - Education Funding in Londonbackbench Business (4 May 2016)

James Berry: As one of the Members of Parliament representing Kingston upon Thames, may I ask my hon. Friend whether he agrees that it cannot be right that my borough gets less than £5,000 per pupil, while other boroughs in London get more than £7,000 per pupil?

Dublin System: Asylum (4 May 2016)

James Berry: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the UK has the double protection of being outside the automatic opt-in and outside Schengen, so that when asylum seekers choose not to claim asylum at the first port of call, they cannot travel across Europe and come to the UK through a no-border zone?

Policing and Crime Bill: statutory duty on flooding (26 Apr 2016)

James Berry: But they are not elected to a specific responsibility, as PCCs are. People who vote for PCCs know they can hold them to account specifically for policing, and that will now be extended to the fire service.

Policing and Crime Bill: statutory duty on flooding (26 Apr 2016)

James Berry: Does the hon. Lady not accept that her comments could be interpreted by the police as quite insulting? They do a lot of preventive and humanitarian work. As she knows, the hon. Lady’s submission comes right out of the Fire Brigades Union’s consultation document, which I also thought was quite insulting to the great work that our police officers do in the very areas that she highlighted.

Border Force Budget 2016-17 (20 Apr 2016)

James Berry: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the UK has the strongest borders in Europe, partly because of the Government’s investment in technology at our borders and partly because of the Conservative party’s firm position that we should not join the Schengen system?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Corporation Tax (19 Apr 2016)

James Berry: Does my hon. Friend agree that it is easy to trot out phrases such as “tax cuts for companies”, but it is vital that we have low corporation tax to attract investment into this country and to ensure that we have jobs here? The Chancellor has repeatedly encouraged companies to pass on tax cuts to workers, which is where they should go.

Schools White Paper (13 Apr 2016)

James Berry: rose—

Schools White Paper (13 Apr 2016)

James Berry: I am glad that Members have been waiting for this. In Kingston, we have the best GCSE results in the country, bar the Isles of Scilly, and only one of the schools is not an academy. It is legitimate to have a debate about whether that model should be mandated throughout the country. Does my right hon. Friend agree, however, that whatever the hon. Member for Manchester Central (Lucy Powell)...

Schools White Paper (13 Apr 2016)

James Berry: What she did not misrepresent was the guff about asset stripping, privatisation and profit that many of her colleagues have engaged in.

Public Bill Committee: Policing and Crime Bill: Digital Crime Review (12 Apr 2016)

James Berry: Does the hon. Lady agree that this is not just an issue for the Government to tackle, but an issue for internet companies? Whereas online banking fraud has been quite effectively tackled by the banks, companies such as Google, Twitter and Facebook need to do much more. They are some of the richest companies in the world, with some of the best technical brains in the world and if this was an...

Public Bill Committee: Policing and Crime Bill: Digital Crime Review (12 Apr 2016)

James Berry: Does my hon. Friend agree that a lot of this online crime—online fraud—is not local crime but happens in boiler rooms that sell, or mis-sell, things across the whole of the UK, and that there needs to be a collective national approach to it? A lot of this work is done by Action Fraud, which is based in the City of London police, so that the people committing these crimes that affect...

Public Bill Committee: Policing and Crime Bill: Offence of breach of pre-charge bail conditions relating to travel (12 Apr 2016)

James Berry: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that that was in fact a recommendation of the Select Committee on Home Affairs? The right hon. Member for Leicester East (Keith Vaz) circulated something to the Committee this morning saying that it was his cross-party Committee that brought the issue to the Government’s attention, and it is something on which we all agree.

Public Bill Committee: Policing and Crime Bill: Restrictions on places that may be used as places of safety (12 Apr 2016)

James Berry: The hon. Gentleman makes a good point and speaks with authority on the subject. Does he recognise that there are some excellent local examples of clinical commissioning groups working well with the police? In Kingston we have a new project where the mental health trusts, the clinical commissioning group and the Met police have come together to provide just the kind of facility we are talking...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Violence against Women and Girls (11 Apr 2016)

James Berry: What steps the Government have taken to tackle violence against women and girls.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Violence against Women and Girls (11 Apr 2016)

James Berry: Last month, True Honour, an honour-based violence charity led by my constituent Sarbjit Athwal, and of which I am proud to be a trustee, was recognised with charity status. Will my right hon. Friend update the House on her Department’s progress in tackling honour-based violence?
