Royston Smith: I do not propose to speak for quite as long as my hon. Friend the Member for Gillingham and Rainham (Rehman Chishti) but, of course, he has worked very hard on this issue through his private Member’s Bill, so I will whistle through my comments, many of which have been made already. The Bill rightly covers all modes of transport, but I will confine my comments to aircraft. I spent much...

Access to Fertility Services: Laser Misuse (Vehicles) Bill [Lords] (18 Apr 2018)

Royston Smith: The hon. Gentleman might be right. I did some research on the likelihood of having an accident in an aeroplane, which is why I know that my fear is irrational. Taking probability out of it, a person would have to fly every day for 15,000 years to guarantee themselves on accident. I know that, but it does not stop my thinking about it when I hit a bit of turbulence or when I come in to land....

Health and Social Care: GP Services (20 Mar 2018)

Royston Smith: Like many other places throughout the country, Southampton is struggling to recruit and retain GPs.

Friend aware of that and of how widespread is it? What is he doing to encourage more people into...

Petition - Nature Reserves in Dudley South: Suspicious Deaths Abroad (28 Feb 2018)

Royston Smith: The Minister said that we could intervene only if we were invited to do so. What if we are never invited to do so? My constituent, whose son died in suspicious circumstances, went to the Thai police, who said that they had misled the results of the autopsy. How would the Foreign Office or our authorities involve themselves in that case? The Thai police are almost certainly never going to...

Petition - Nature Reserves in Dudley South: Suspicious Deaths Abroad (28 Feb 2018)

Royston Smith: I am very grateful to the hon. Lady for giving way. I apologise for interrupting her when she was making such a powerful and emotional speech. It was at a point that reminded me of my constituent, Mrs Brenda White, who, tragically, lost her son Michael in Thailand. She was told that it was suicide, but she simply did not believe that, and much of the evidence did not support that. I agree...

Petition - Closure of Lloyds Bank Branch in Woolston (6 Feb 2018)

Royston Smith: I did not think that I would be the first to present a petition about a bank closure, but I have no doubt that I will not be the last. Before I get to the text of the petition, I want to say that I am disappointed with the chief operating officer of Lloyds Bank Group, Juan Colombás.

Baby Leave for Members of Parliament: Hospital Car Parking Charges (1 Feb 2018)

Royston Smith: The hon. Lady makes a very good point about congestion, with people trying to find parking spaces and there not being enough.
