Business of the House (12 Oct 2017)

Clive Lewis: Can the Leader of the House provide time for the Business Secretary to address the threatened closure of the Britvic and Colman’s factories in Norwich, which could lead to job losses for hundreds of my constituents? I have written to the Business Secretary, and I hope the Leader of the House can assure me that he will respond. He was able to intervene in the Nissan case last year, and...

Royal Mail Delivery Office Closures — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (11 Oct 2017)

Clive Lewis: It is an honour to speak in this debate under your chairmanship, Mr Gapes, and I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Dulwich and West Norwood (Helen Hayes) for securing it. It is a fantastic debate. I also thank my hon. Friend the Member for Coatbridge, Chryston and Bellshill (Hugh Gaffney) for a fantastic speech. Many on the Opposition Benches hope that his five-year career break will be...

Iran: Human Rights — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (11 Oct 2017)

Clive Lewis: I, too, would like to thank the right hon. Member for Chipping Barnet (Theresa Villiers) for securing this debate. It was quite shocking to listen to the seemingly inexhaustible list of human rights abuses by Iranian authorities. It was quite numbing to hear them all. I think it is right that we focus on human rights, as that issue has been a central thrust of my very short parliamentary...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (10 Oct 2017)

Clive Lewis: Accountable care systems are a systemic change to the way the NHS will be managed and a significant step towards an Americanised care system, so will the Minister explain why NHS England is having a fundamental reorganisation take place under the radar without a national consultation?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Renewable Energy and Carbon Budget Targets (12 Sep 2017)

Clive Lewis: Pope Francis warned yesterday that history will judge adversely politicians who do not act on climate change, so when will the Government heed his words and publish their long overdue report and fifth carbon budget emissions reduction plan?

Humanitarian Situation in Mosul: Grenfell Tower Fire Inquiry (12 Jul 2017)

Clive Lewis: I welcome you to your place, Madam Deputy Speaker. It is humbling to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Kensington (Emma Dent Coad) and her powerful words. What a difference it makes having a Labour MP in that constituency to speak up for the voiceless and those without power following this tragic incident. Many of us still find ourselves unable to comprehend the shocking fire at Grenfell...

Public Sector Pay Cap (5 Jul 2017)

Clive Lewis: In the exceedingly fine city of Norwich, we have three NHS trusts, two local authorities and a teaching hospital—thousands of public sector workers who contribute to our economy, and who are struggling to make ends meet. Surely the Government must understand that austerity is dying on its feet. They should invest in those people. If they lift the public sector pay cap, they will invest...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Points of Order (25 Apr 2017)

Clive Lewis: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. You have often stated from the Chair that answers to written parliamentary questions from Back-Bench Members from all parts of the House should be answered in both a timely and a substantive manner by Ministers. On 24 March, I tabled a named day question to the Parliamentary Secretary, Cabinet Office, the hon. Member for Kingswood (Chris Skidmore), asking,...

Post Office Closures — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (25 Apr 2017)

Clive Lewis: I am grateful to the hon. Member for East Worthing and Shoreham (Tim Loughton) for securing today’s debate on this extremely worthy subject, given that it could be one of the last debates we have in this Parliament. I declare an interest as a proud trade unionist. I believe that the Communication Workers Union has done as much as anyone. It has put post office closures at the forefront...

Business of the House (30 Mar 2017)

Clive Lewis: May we have an urgent debate on the 6,000 constituents of Norwich South who have been sanctioned by the Department for Work and Pensions since 2010? In particular, I should like to raise the issue of one 45-year-old terminal cancer patient who failed his work capability assessment. He was stripped of his employment and support allowance, denied jobseeker’s allowance and is now living...

Yemen (28 Mar 2017)

Clive Lewis: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker, for your generosity with the time. I am very glad to speak in this place about the current situation in Yemen.

Yemen (28 Mar 2017)

Clive Lewis: I pay tribute to my right hon. Friend the Member for Leicester East (Keith Vaz) and the hon. Members for Portsmouth South (Mrs Drummond) and for Glasgow Central (Alison Thewliss) for securing today’s debate. I pay tribute to them not just as a politeness but because by choosing Yemen as a topic for public debate in the House, they have brought into our public arena an urgent discussion...

Business of the House (23 Mar 2017)

Clive Lewis: I put on record my thanks to the staff and to all those outside this House—members of the public—who have sent their kind thoughts and wishes in the past 24 hours. It has been very touching, and I thank them very much. I also add my voice to the chorus of Members who are calling for more time to debate the Government’s new funding formula—or, as Labour Members call it,...

Advisory Committee on Business Appointments/Ministerial Code (20 Mar 2017)

Clive Lewis: Let me declare an interest as a former NCTJ—National Council for the Training of Journalists—qualified journalist and a member of the National Union of Journalists, which I hope the right hon. Member for Tatton (Mr Osborne) will be joining in short course. Much has been made of possible political conflicts of interest, but will the Minister also address potential commercial...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (16 Mar 2017)

Clive Lewis: Is the Minister aware that more than 300 local newspapers have closed in the past 10 years? While Members might enjoy reading about skateboarding ducks, such newspapers are also a critical part of our democracy. Will the Minister therefore join me in supporting the National Union of Journalists in its “Local News Matters” campaign and week, and will he meet the union to discuss...

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (13 Mar 2017)

Clive Lewis: It is always a pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Stockton North (Alex Cunningham), as well as, of course, the Toblerone tour de force that came from the Foreign Secretary earlier. It is strange to be debating Britain’s place in the world in the context of a Budget statement that refused to address the single issue that will completely dominate our place in the world for...

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (13 Mar 2017)

Clive Lewis: I shall finish there.

Unaccompanied Children (Greece and Italy) (23 Feb 2017)

Clive Lewis: I have sat and listened to the debate and heard powerful presentations from many Members across the House. I think that the debate distils down to two very clear things. First, what do we want to look like to the rest of the world? What example do we want to set? Secondly, what type of country do we want to be? Does my right hon. Friend agree with that?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Harmful Emissions: Road Transport (23 Feb 2017)

Clive Lewis: What steps he is taking to reduce harmful emissions from road transport.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Harmful Emissions: Road Transport (23 Feb 2017)

Clive Lewis: Given that 40,000 people die prematurely every year from air pollution and that the Government have lost two High Court cases over their lack of action, will the Minister now use his large, galvanised fist to push through clean air zones in cities such as Norwich to protect people’s health?
