Brexit Deal: Referendum — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (11 Dec 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: My hon. Friend is making a wonderful speech. Has she had the opportunity to look at some of the work that the Constitution Unit has done through citizens’ juries, and similar work by Catherine Barnard at the University of Cambridge? People who voted to leave, when asked what they actually want, move in quite a sophisticated way, which demonstrates that the real question is not whether...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (7 Dec 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: A quarter of our rivers are at risk from unsustainable abstraction, which is a particular problem in the south and east. When will the Government actually take action to tackle unsustainable water abstraction?

EU Exit Negotiations (5 Dec 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: My hon. Friend the Member for Hammersmith (Andy Slaughter) rightly raised the issue of citizens’ rights. Thousands of people in my constituency, and millions across Britain and the EU, are worried about their futures. Last year, we were told that this would be sorted out swiftly and that it would be simple, but it turns out that it is much more complicated. What is the position now in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (4 Dec 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: If he will make a statement on his departmental responsibilities.

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (4 Dec 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: Dockless bike schemes have recently been established in several cities. Some are working well and some less so, but councils are left struggling with outdated legislation to deal with such schemes. Will the Secretary of State meet me and others from affected areas to discuss the right way forward?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Road Safety (30 Nov 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: The Minister will know that one of the biggest obstacles to the take-up of cycling is people’s fears about safety. Has he done an assessment of whether the necessary resources are in place to implement the cycling, walking and investment strategy, and if he has, could he publish it?

Exiting the Eu: Costs (29 Nov 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: Before making a big decision, it is generally sensible to inquire about the price. Most people will be staggered to learn that the average household in this country will be asked to stump up between £2,000 and £3,000 to pay for this. What plans do the Government have to tell people about the bill they are facing and to ask them whether they think it is a good use of their money?

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (28 Nov 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: It is a pleasure to follow my near neighbour, the hon. Member for Chelmsford (Vicky Ford), although I have to say that I do not find many people on the streets who echo her thanks to her colleagues quite so effusively. Reading the comments of the OBR, it is hard to come to the conclusion that they are anything other than somewhat gloomy. I would suggest to Conservative Members that just one...

Uber: Personal Data Theft (23 Nov 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: Uber’s scandalous disregard for the rights of the millions of people who have entrusted it with their personal data shows that we need stronger protection. There was a suggestion in yesterday’s Budget that there will be a centre for data ethics. Can the Minister shed some light on the centre’s relationship with the Information Commissioner’s Office to ensure that we...

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Topical Questions (22 Nov 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: Cambridge Assessment, which manages the University of Cambridge’s three exam boards, is not-for-profit and world leading, yet it faces unfair competition from private exam boards that are not subject to freedom of information rules. Why will the Government not extend transparency to all providers of public services?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Charter of Fundamental Rights – Government Report (21 Nov 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: My right hon. Friend is making an excellent case on a very complicated set of issues. Does he agree that the conclusion we should draw from the points he has made and from the observation I am about to make, which is that this has so far been a very lawyerly discussion, is that this will end up being a highly political decision? Whatever the rights and wrongs as expressed by the lawyers...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (21 Nov 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: The Foreign Secretary will be aware that despite last week’s climate change talks, the world is still not on track to limit global warming to less than 3° C. What steps is he taking to ensure that we get back on track?

UK Bee Population (14 Nov 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: The hon. Gentleman is making a very good speech. I would like to go back to the point about the alternatives. I wonder whether he saw the observation by the excellent Bumblebee Conservation Trust, which said that “many other non-neonicotinoid pesticides can and do cause harm to bumblebees and other pollinators, and we must ensure that neonicotinoids are not simply replaced by...

Community Policing — [Ms Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (7 Nov 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: The hon. Gentleman mentions Norfolk, but I wonder if he is aware of the comments from Her Majesty’s inspectorate of constabulary about the role of PCSOs in the area. It says: “Where dedicated local policing teams exist, too often the warranted police officers on them are routinely taken away from their local policing duties to handle immediate tasks elsewhere. That leaves police...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: University Church of England Academy (6 Nov 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: The salutary example of such schools is a warning to schools such as St Philip’s Primary School in my constituency that are being forced into academisation. Extraordinarily, although there is a consultation, parents have been told that it is a foregone conclusion. Why is the Secretary of State so opposed to parental choice?

Unaccompanied Child Refugees: Europe (2 Nov 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: The hon. Lady, my near neighbour, is making an excellent speech and I commend her for the excellent work she has done on this issue. Is she aware that, back in 2015, 100 families in the city of Cambridge volunteered to host refugee children? Does she agree that the Government need to be much more creative and to respond more positively to the kind of generosity that we see, not just in my...

Daniel Zeichner: If he will make a statement on his departmental responsibilities.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (31 Oct 2017)
