European Free Trade Association — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (7 Feb 2018)

Daniel Zeichner: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

European Free Trade Association — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (7 Feb 2018)

Daniel Zeichner: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that a further advantage of the EEA-EFTA arrangements is access to EU programmes such as Horizon 2020 and Erasmus, which is of crucial importance to science and research and the universities sector?

Immigration White Paper (5 Feb 2018)

Daniel Zeichner: Last week, two consultants in intensive care at Addenbrooke’s Hospital wrote to me. They had been trying to recruit urgently needed staff. They found three people, but those people were turned down by the Home Office because the tier 2 visa cap had been reached for that month. How can that possibly be helpful to our country? Does the Minister agree that the system is basically broken?

Licensing of Taxis and Private Hire Vehicles (Safeguarding and Road Safety) Bill (2 Feb 2018)

Daniel Zeichner: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time. I am sure that many hon. Members have heard from taxi and private hire drivers about the issues the trade faces, as well as from passengers, trade unions, disability and safety campaigners, and councillors because the trade faces enormous challenges, particularly with changing technologies. The Bill focuses solely on passenger safety. We...

Licensing of Taxis and Private Hire Vehicles (Safeguarding and Road Safety) Bill (2 Feb 2018)

Daniel Zeichner: Given the time constraints, I will not go into the detail of such cases, but some notorious ones in Southend, for example, have hit the national headlines. We now come to the second part of the problem I seek to address. Local council enforcement officers can enforce only against those who are licensed in their own local authority. This means not only that drivers trying to game the system...

Licensing of Taxis and Private Hire Vehicles (Safeguarding and Road Safety) Bill (2 Feb 2018)

Daniel Zeichner: The hon. Lady is exactly right that that is the problem we are trying to address. The Bill will give councils the tools they need to better protect passengers using taxis and private hire vehicles in their areas. It requires licensing authorities to record licence refusals, revocations and suspensions on a national database. Currently, there is no system that centrally records this...

Licensing of Taxis and Private Hire Vehicles (Safeguarding and Road Safety) Bill (2 Feb 2018)

Daniel Zeichner: My hon. Friend is right, and it will be very interesting to see what the Welsh Government come up with. As I was saying, the second authority must have regard to the decision of the first, and come to a reasoned decision on whether to license a driver. The second part of the Bill allows local authority enforcement teams to report instances of wrongdoing by taxi and private hire drivers that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (31 Jan 2018)

Daniel Zeichner: Recent research shows that international students are worth a staggering £20 billion to the UK economy; that research was commissioned by Nick Hillman, Conservative parliamentary candidate in Cambridge in 2010 and a former adviser to Lord Willetts. Yet the policies of the Prime Minister have stopped that steady increase in the number of international students coming to our country. Does...

Business of the House (25 Jan 2018)

Daniel Zeichner: Two years ago today—on 25 January 2016—University of Cambridge PhD researcher Giulio Regeni went missing in Cairo. His brutally battered body was recovered a week later; he had been tortured and murdered. The crime sparked international outrage and has called into question very basic academic freedoms. May we have a statement from a Minister on what the Government are doing to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (23 Jan 2018)

Daniel Zeichner: I congratulate the hon. and learned Lady, my neighbour, on her appointment. She will have noticed the very strong and universally hostile reaction in Cambridge and Cambridgeshire to her plans to close the magistrates court. Can she reassure us that local people will be properly listened to, and better still, will she withdraw those plans today?

Business of the House (11 Jan 2018)

Daniel Zeichner: You may be aware, Mr Speaker, of the concern that many parents have about skin gambling and loot boxes and worries in the video gaming sector about unauthorised third party website selling those items from those loot boxes, thus potentially turning young people into gamblers. There have been reports of young people losing a great deal of money very quickly. May we have a debate in Government...

NHS Winter Crisis: Primary School Academisation: Cambridge (10 Jan 2018)

Daniel Zeichner: I am grateful to the Minister for taking an intervention. He will know that there are other views about the success of these processes. I shall put to him again the essential point in my speech. If a school has recovered, its results are good and it is doing well, and if there is clearly strong support for it, as in this case, why would we want to destabilise it when there is strong support...

NHS Winter Crisis: Primary School Academisation: Cambridge (10 Jan 2018)

Daniel Zeichner: I appreciate the Minister’s generosity in giving way again. I deliberately tried not to single out organisations apart from the one that stimulated this debate. However, on the back of that eulogy, may I remind the Minister that he has not taken the opportunity to answer any of the questions that I posed? How many unqualified teachers have been employed? What changes to terms and...

NHS Winter Crisis: Primary School Academisation: Cambridge (10 Jan 2018)

Daniel Zeichner: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker, for allowing the House the opportunity to consider the important issue of the academisation of primary schools in Cambridge. I will talk primarily about the necessity of both transparency and accountability of academy trusts and about the academisation process itself. The debate is timely, because just a few hours ago there was a meeting at St Philip’s C...

NHS Winter Crisis: Rail Franchising (10 Jan 2018)

Daniel Zeichner: I would like to engage the House on the question whether franchising works. My local radio station, BBC Radio Cambridgeshire, will next week be celebrating 25 years since this country started on the journey from British Rail to anything but British rail. I remember it rather well because I went to a Railtrack meeting at the time and asked what I thought was a naive question: “Who is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Life Sciences (19 Dec 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: Medical research charities play a key role in developing new medical treatments, yet the Charity Research Support Fund, which enables universities to unlock investment from the sector, has been frozen since 2010. Will the Minister heed the call from the Association of Medical Research Charities to enhance CRSF in real terms, in line with inflation and with charity investment?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (18 Dec 2017)

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

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (18 Dec 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: The universities superannuation scheme is a strong pension scheme that recently closed its defined-benefits section, moving to a defined-contribution scheme and, in effect, transferring all risk to the employee. Many argue that over-cautious accounting rules drive these changes, creating a poorer scheme that leaves many people less well off in future and puts pressure on our universities....

Exiting the European Union: Regulation of Medicines (14 Dec 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: What progress the Government have made on negotiating with the EU continuing co-operation on the regulation of medicines after the UK leaves the EU.

Exiting the European Union: Regulation of Medicines (14 Dec 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: The high costs of not maintaining regulatory alignment for medicines were recently laid bare in evidence to the BEIS Select Committee. If alignment is not achieved, how much would prescription charges have to go up? Is regulatory alignment the Government’s objective? If so, what is the point in all this?
