Grenfell Tower: Business of the House (19 Oct 2017)

Justin Madders: On Monday we had the incredibly disappointing news of 400 redundancies at Vauxhall, and I was grateful for the opportunity to raise it on the Floor of the House that day through an urgent question. I will return to the issue of the plant’s future in the coming weeks and months, but there was also other news on jobs that day in the form of a constituency-by-constituency report on the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (19 Oct 2017)

Justin Madders: Further to the question from my hon. Friend the Member for Warrington South (Faisal Rashid), who was right to point out the impact of the new charges on the Mersey Gateway will have on his constituents, as well as the charges that are being introduced on the existing Silver Jubilee bridge, will the Minister tell us how many existing crossings, which were previously free, have had charges...

Regulation of Property Agents (18 Oct 2017)

Justin Madders: My constituents trapped in rip-off leasehold houses now look forward to swift action from the Government following the consultation that has just closed. Turning to this statement, more and more new estates are subject to management fees because developers are not transferring responsibility for common parts to local authorities, meaning that many homeowners are effectively paying twice for...

Iran: Vauxhall (Redundancies) (16 Oct 2017)

Justin Madders: (Urgent Question): To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy if he will make a statement on the announcement by Vauxhall to move staff in Ellesmere Port from two production shifts to one in early 2018, resulting in 400 redundancies in the next few months.

Iran: Vauxhall (Redundancies) (16 Oct 2017)

Justin Madders: Thank you, Mr Speaker, and I thank the Minister for her response. This is deeply concerning news for those at the plant and for the automotive sector more widely. It will have a significant impact on the local economy. What action can the Minister take to ensure that there are no compulsory redundancies? As she said, the consensus is that the reason for this decision is changing consumer...

Iran: Vauxhall (Redundancies) (16 Oct 2017)

Justin Madders: indicated dissent.

Business of the House (12 Oct 2017)

Justin Madders: The Grace Arms is a well-known landmark on the drive into Ellesmere Port town centre, but its existence is under threat from property developers. Many in the area are deeply concerned by the potential loss of this much-loved community facility, so may we have debate on what more the Government can do to support local pubs?

Women and Equalities: Discrimination Claims: Tribunal Fees (12 Oct 2017)

Justin Madders: What steps she is taking to ensure that women who were unable to pursue pregnancy and maternity discrimination claims due to the cost of employment tribunal fees are able to bring forward their cases.

Women and Equalities: Discrimination Claims: Tribunal Fees (12 Oct 2017)

Justin Madders: I understand that the Government are considering how to approach the system, but will the Minister rule out any type of up-front fee to access justice in employment tribunals in the future?

European Union (Approvals) Bill: Baby Loss Awareness Week (10 Oct 2017)

Justin Madders: This has been a compelling debate, which has once again shown the House at its best. I welcome the fact that we are discussing these issues again in the Chamber as part of Baby Loss Awareness Week. I hope that these extremely valuable debates will become an annual fixture, because they provide us with a very valuable opportunity to raise awareness of the work of the 40 baby loss charities who...

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

Justin Madders: Although we support moves to broaden access to nursing, these measures are effectively an admission that the scrapping of bursaries has been a disaster, but whatever recruitment strategies there are, the Government need to improve retention. The Royal College of Nursing recently reported that half of nurses surveyed said that “staff shortages are compromising…care”. What...

Local Housing Need (14 Sep 2017)

Justin Madders: A growing number of people in the private rented sector are, for a variety of reasons, unable to buy a home of their own. Local authorities consider them to be adequately housed, which means they cannot access affordable housing either, so they are effectively trapped in the private rented sector. What will the Government do to help them?

Business of the House (14 Sep 2017)

Justin Madders: This week, the Government announced a badger cull in Cheshire. The scientific evidence shows that a vaccination programme would be far more effective, but the Government insist on carrying out this cruel and barbaric practice contrary to the science. Can we have a debate, please, on why the Government insist on operating in this way?

Police Pay and Funding (14 Sep 2017)

Justin Madders: Is not making half the pay award non-consolidated a sleight of hand, which officers will see right through? If they are worth a 2% pay increase, why can the Minister not make it a genuine consolidated 2% increase?

BBC Transparency — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (7 Sep 2017)

Justin Madders: Thank you, Mr Bone. I will endeavour to stick to your timetable. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship. The BBC is one of those institutions for which there is widespread affection and support across the country, and it is highly respected worldwide. As a public service broadcaster, it plays an important role in our country. As our society has changed and moved with the times, so...

Business of the House (7 Sep 2017)

Justin Madders: May I pursue the question asked by my hon. Friend the Member for City of Chester (Christian Matheson)? Many of my constituents tell me that they will have to pay up to £80 a month more just to get to work as a result of the Mersey crossing toll charges. May we have a debate on what the Government will do to prevent them from being penalised by what is, in effect, a jobs tax?

International Day of Democracy: British Citizens: Consular Support — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (6 Sep 2017)

Justin Madders: I beg to move, That this House has considered consular support for British citizens. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr McCabe. I am grateful for the opportunity for this debate. My interest in this important issue was sparked by two of my constituents, who approached me with different issues but with one common theme: the help they had hoped would be provided by our...

International Day of Democracy: British Citizens: Consular Support — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (6 Sep 2017)

Justin Madders: I certainly echo those sentiments. My hon. Friend the Member for City of Chester (Christian Matheson) also has a constituent in that dreadful situation. It looks like it could drag on for many years, which is intolerable for the families. I understand that sometimes these things cannot be best discussed in an open forum—that does not always reap the best results—but we are in a...

International Day of Democracy: British Citizens: Consular Support — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (6 Sep 2017)

Justin Madders: I thank my hon. Friend for her intervention and agree with her suggestion. It seems that only certain countries play by the same rules, and it is frustrating when what we think is the right way to deal with things is not replicated in various locations around the world. I know that she has been an assiduous supporter of her constituent, and I hope that the Minister can give some assurances on...

Summer Adjournment (20 Jul 2017)

Justin Madders: I am pleased that my hon. Friend the Member for Bristol South (Karin Smyth) has taken her rightful place on the Front Bench. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Reading East (Matt Rodda) on his maiden speech. He spoke with great sincerity and knowledge about his constituency and the challenges facing it, particularly pressure on housing and public services. I wish to raise just...
