Business of the House (22 Mar 2018)

Neil Coyle: On the anniversary of the Westminster attack and nine months after my constituency was attacked, the Government are today announcing plans to update terror insurance legislation. It is estimated that more than 4.8 million UK businesses are not currently covered by the Government-backed pool reinsurance system. Will Ministers allow time to discuss how to bring all UK employers into coverage...

Building Safety (15 Mar 2018)

Neil Coyle: Immediately after Grenfell, Southwark Council’s leader, chief exec and the three borough MPs wrote to the Secretary of State asking for help to retrofit sprinklers in more than 170 tower blocks in the borough. That was a clear request for financial support. It is simply disingenuous to claim that no request has been turned down. The Department dismissively said that it would assess the...

Business of the House (15 Mar 2018)

Neil Coyle: Two years ago, my constituent Malorie Bantala was attacked by her ex-partner and an accomplice. She was eight months pregnant, and they deliberately targeted her stomach, stamping on her until they caused the loss of the child. Malorie launched a campaign this Mothers’ Day, with the support of Women’s Aid and the Mother of the House, the right hon. and learned Member for...

Homelessness (27 Feb 2018)

Neil Coyle: I speak as co-chair of the all-party group for ending homelessness, which I am pleased to co-chair with the hon. Member for Colchester (Will Quince). I work with him to highlight solutions in a non-partisan way. Doing so takes awareness of the policies contributing to the problem as well as ability to identify the policies that are missing altogether. It also takes an admission that...

Homelessness (27 Feb 2018)

Neil Coyle: The hon. Lady is making an incredibly powerful speech, and a lot of personal commitment has clearly been put into addressing this issue. She mentioned universal credit among other policies. Given that this has contributed to the problem, is it one of the policies that she is most embarrassed about her party pursuing while in government with the Conservative party?

Mental Health Act: CQC Report (27 Feb 2018)

Neil Coyle: This CQC report shows that the bad old days of poor mental health care are creeping back: insufficient staff, a doubling of restriction, and a third of patients not involved in their care plan. Why do the Government continue to fail people with mental health conditions, and when do they expect all mental health services to be made safe—the most basic of requirements?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (20 Feb 2018)

Neil Coyle: Almost two years ago, my constituent Adrian St John was murdered in Trinidad. Since then, his mother Sharon and I have been working with Ministers and officials in both countries to secure justice, but progress has been grindingly slow. The case in Trinidad has been adjourned 27 times. Will the Government ensure that Adrian’s murder is on the agenda when the Prime Minister of Trinidad...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Mobile Web: Improved Access (8 Feb 2018)

Neil Coyle: What steps his Department is taking to improve access to the mobile web.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Mobile Web: Improved Access (8 Feb 2018)

Neil Coyle: Parts of my central London community have the lowest mobile internet data broadband speeds, including in Rotherhithe, Surrey Docks and south Bermondsey, deeply troubling my constituents who are trying to get the latest “Hanky” app from the Secretary of State’s own provider. Will he guarantee that those areas are included in the roll-out of superfast broadband? Will he...

Police Grant Report (7 Feb 2018)

Neil Coyle: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for giving way, and I am grateful to the idiot Minister for suggesting that he needs to talk to Sadiq Khan. Does he agree—

Police Grant Report (7 Feb 2018)

Neil Coyle: I withdraw the comment, but I think that my point will make the case. Does my hon. Friend agree—

Police Grant Report (7 Feb 2018)

Neil Coyle: And I have said that I withdraw it. Does my hon. Friend agree with me, with Sadiq Khan and with the Home Office’s expert panel that London should receive its full share of the national and international capital city grant, which would deliver an extra £280 million to the Met?

Police Grant Report (7 Feb 2018)

Neil Coyle: On terrorism and the threat that we face, does the hon. Gentleman know why the Government have not yet taken up the opportunity to close the loophole on terrorism insurance? That would help the police to do their job and to protect businesses from terror attacks. While I am on my feet, may I suggest that, whatever he believes the shadow Home Secretary to have done, it is deeply offensive to...

Police Grant Report (7 Feb 2018)

Neil Coyle: Does my hon. Friend agree that any current recruiting follows year-on-year consecutive cuts to police numbers? Southwark has lost 200 police officers and PCSOs despite having the highest volume of 999 calls in London, experiencing a terror attack last year, and seeing high rates of moped and knife crime.

Leaving the Eu: Economic Analysis (30 Jan 2018)

Neil Coyle: On a point of order, Mr Speaker.

Leaving the Eu: Economic Analysis (30 Jan 2018)

Neil Coyle: indicated assent.

Leaving the Eu: Economic Analysis (30 Jan 2018)

Neil Coyle: Thank you, Mr Speaker. The ministerial code of practice outlines seven principles of public life, one of which is on openness. It states specifically: “Information should not be withheld from the public unless there are clear and lawful reasons for so doing.” It sounds as though there is certainly a discrepancy between what was said to the Select Committee in December and what we...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Ofsted Inspections (29 Jan 2018)

Neil Coyle: Morale is low, retention is a challenge and schools face exorbitant agency fees to recruit new staff. St Saviour’s and St Olave’s School at the Bricklayers’ in my constituency spent £100,000 just last year on recruitment alone. When will the Government act to end rip-off agency fees, or introduce their own portal to better link available teachers and recruiting schools?

Personal Independence Payment (23 Jan 2018)

Neil Coyle: The Secretary of State says that the Department will now be identifying the 164,000 disabled people who were wrongly denied the help to which they are entitled. Her Department also recently announced it is scrapping a target it previously denied existed—that of upholding 80% of initial decisions. When will the DWP be contacting the 83,000 disabled people who were potentially wrongly...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Victims of Crime (23 Jan 2018)

Neil Coyle: Whether the Government plan to introduce new legislative proposals on enshrining rights for victims.
