Fifa: Britain in the World (1 Jun 2015)

Johnny Mercer: It is a privilege to follow the hon. Member for Ochil and South Perthshire (Ms Ahmed-Sheikh). I want to start by thanking my predecessor, Ms Alison Seabeck. She worked hard in the course of the past decade to help some of the most vulnerable people in Plymouth. She never waivered in her commitment to her party, albeit a different one from mine. The great city of Plymouth, which I have been...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Scotland Bill (8 Jun 2015)

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

Johnny Mercer: In my constituency, where the average wage is far lower than the national average, cutting the taxes of the lowest paid and helping them to stand on their own two feet is the most effective poverty-tackling measure there is. Will the Prime Minister explain how the Conservatives will reward hard work and benefit those who earn the minimum wage, not only in Plymouth but throughout the country?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (17 Jun 2015)

Johnny Mercer: After years of undeserved neglect my city, Plymouth, is beginning to enjoy some infrastructure investment and realise its brilliant potential. We can see that from today’s jobs figures, which show an unemployment fall of almost half since this Chancellor came in. A most important step in that is our Hitachi trains deal. Will he please clarify where we are today with that?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: GP Appointments (7 Jul 2015)

Johnny Mercer: Radical and innovative steps were taken in Plymouth this April to integrate not only front-line health and social care services in the city, but all the council and clinical commissioning group resources into a single fund.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Tunisia (14 Jul 2015)

Johnny Mercer: I am sure the whole House will join me in thanking the Minister for his inspirational service to the Government in working with the families of those affected by last month’s tragedy. It is brilliant to hear that each family will have a dedicated liaison officer to see them through the coming years. Can he confirm that that will be along the lines of the groups set up to support the victims...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Counter-ISIL Coalition Strategy (20 Jul 2015)

Johnny Mercer: When I was serving, one of the most frustrating things was an almost uninformed debate about our military action. Does my right hon. Friend agree that questions about embeds, and asking special forces capabilities to be raised on the Floor of the House of Commons, belie a fundamental misunderstanding of how our forces operate, and that in interoperability it is vital we have embeds to ensure...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Syria: Refugees and Counter-terrorism (7 Sep 2015)

Johnny Mercer: I warmly welcome the Prime Minister’s statement, and may I take this opportunity to pay tribute to the operators and those who endure what we ask them to in order to execute these strikes? Does the Prime Minister agree that we now have to win the argument about dealing with ISIS? We have seen the tragic events over the past few months, and we must now use that momentum to push ahead, win...

Sgt Alexander Blackman (Marine A) — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (16 Sep 2015)

Johnny Mercer: I have been asked a few times for my views on the case, for a variety of reasons, and I have not offered them, but as it is yet again in Parliament and I am now, fortunately, a Member, I will use the opportunity to set out my view. To give some context, I never achieved anything particularly great in the Army, but I have a unique viewpoint. I served three tours from the beginning of the...

Sgt Alexander Blackman (Marine A) — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (16 Sep 2015)

Johnny Mercer: As to the PTSD system, there is a chronic effect on a generation that we have asked to do our bidding in conflicts miles away. There is often a time lag before the effects kick in, but there still seems to be an idea of putting it aside, and that is simply not good enough. We have to look after our blokes better. If a civilian commits murder they are entitled to a psychiatric assessment as...

Sgt Alexander Blackman (Marine A) — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (16 Sep 2015)

Johnny Mercer: We can say that somebody is in the military, but that is clearly a very broad church. What steps were taken to ensure that the individuals who were passing judgment on this soldier had relevant personal experience of the pressures that that individual was placed under at the time?

Sgt Alexander Blackman (Marine A) — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (16 Sep 2015)

Johnny Mercer: I just wanted to build on that point and clarify what I said earlier about the MOD. I thank the Minister for the candid nature of his speech. He has shown us that we have a real opportunity, with the team of Ministers at the MOD, not only to get this case right but to tackle the causes of what happened. We all know the facts, but there are causes behind the story. We have a unique opportunity...

Friend do to assure my constituents that an already challenged constituency can retain confidence in its health care provision?

Mental Health (Armed Forces Veterans) (14 Oct 2015)

Johnny Mercer: Madam Deputy Speaker, I was going to share the time with the hon. Member for East Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow (Dr Cameron).

Mental Health (Armed Forces Veterans) (14 Oct 2015)

Johnny Mercer: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker. I apologise—I spoke to Mr Speaker before you took the Chair. I thank the hon. Member for East Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow for giving me a few minutes of her allocated time, and offer my sincere thanks to her for bringing what the Prime Minister rightly described today as “this very important issue” before the House.
