Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: It is a pleasure to follow my regional neighbour, the hon. Member for Chelmsford (Vicky Ford). May I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Warwick and Leamington (Matt Western) on his excellent maiden speech? He started by suggesting that he was going to talk about happiness, which is something that we could all do with much more of, and then quite rightly began to reflect on the...

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. Much work needs to be done to raise awareness of what the GDPR will mean. That is a challenge, but it is a good thing in general. The worry is that if it will not be available for our smaller companies in the future, that already challenging task will be made even more difficult. In fact, it will be so difficult in many cases that small companies in areas...

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: My right hon. Friend is making extremely important points. The very fact that we are having the debate shows that there is uncertainty. When those who may be not so friendly to us in other parts of Europe are looking for cause to be difficult, does that not absolutely give them that cause?

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

Daniel Zeichner: 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)

Daniel Zeichner: The Government’s research into maternity-related discrimination shows that one in nine mothers reports that they were either dismissed, made redundant or treated so badly that they had to leave their job. Following the Supreme Court case brought by Unison, the union I used to work for, what specific action are the Government taking to identify those who could have brought claims but did...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Sep 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: Cambridge parents tell me that when young people returned to schools and colleges last week, in some cases they found that almost half the cooks and cleaners had gone. reports that pubs in the area will not be able to serve food, because they cannot find the skilled staff to do it. Is it not ironic that taking back control is a further blow to the great British pub? Will the Prime Minister...

Princess Royal Hospital Telford: UK Nationals in the EU: Rights — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (12 Sep 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: I beg to move, That this House has considered negotiations on the future rights of UK nationals in the EU. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Streeter. I am grateful for the opportunity to consider the negotiations on the future rights of UK nationals in the European Union and I look forward to constructive clarification of the Government’s position on the matter from...

Princess Royal Hospital Telford: UK Nationals in the EU: Rights — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (12 Sep 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: My hon. Friend makes a very good point. Sadly, I suspect that we could spend much of the afternoon considering yet further such problems. All these difficulties confirm what many of us have argued from the outset—that a negotiation would be difficult and a unilateral guarantee was needed, even just to get the discussion going. It is not about exchanging these rights for those rights,...

Princess Royal Hospital Telford: UK Nationals in the EU: Rights — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (12 Sep 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: I agree. The human cost has been completely underestimated. Whatever the final outcomes, the stress and unhappiness being caused now are real. As I have said, the Government maintain that reciprocal arrangements are the way forward and will best guarantee the rights of UK citizens in the EU, but if our treatment of EU nationals here is seen to be ungenerous, where will that leave our people...

Princess Royal Hospital Telford: UK Nationals in the EU: Rights — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (12 Sep 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: I was not aware of that statistic, but it helps to build a powerful and compelling case. I suggest that in general the Government need to rethink their tone, strategy and approach to the negotiations, as well as their aims, because progress so far has been so slow. Last week, the Conference of Presidents of the European Parliament met and published a statement which said that “a clear...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: I will vote against the Bill tonight, for the slightly quaint reason that that is what I told my constituents I would do back in June —that is partly why I have been sent here—and for other reasons, some of which we have heard from Members on both sides of the House. The hon. Member for Gloucester (Richard Graham) mentioned the House of Lords Constitution Committee. Coming from...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Free Childcare (11 Sep 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: Back in 2015, David Cameron promised that the 30 hours would, in his words, be “completely free”. Every nursery I speak to in Cambridge tells me that it is having to cross-subsidise and often charge for extras, including lunch. Will the Minister tell us in what sense that is completely free?

New Housing Design (5 Sep 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir David. I congratulate the hon. Member for Tiverton and Honiton (Neil Parish) on raising this issue. It is a really big issue in my city. Those of us who know Cambridgeshire know that the view for people coming across the fens used to be just King’s College chapel and the university library—two different examples of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (5 Sep 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: Given the problems the Department has had when it has privatised many of its services, it seems extraordinary that there are now plans to privatise the collection of court fines and outsource the work of civil enforcement officers. When will the Government appreciate that the public expect these sensitive public services to be delivered by the public, not a bunch of cowboys?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Brexit: Environmental and Animal Welfare Standards (20 Jul 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: Fine words, but our bee population requires more as the research published in the peer review journal demonstrated just a few weeks ago. Will the Secretary of State today pledge to end the use of neonicotinoids in the UK and tell us whether the precautionary principle adopted by the European Union will be transposed into UK law?

Taxi Trade — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Wilson. I commend my hon. Friend the Member for Ilford North (Wes Streeting). His account was exhaustive, and the work of the all-party group has been extremely helpful. A proper discussion of the issues around the industry is long overdue. I do not want to rehearse the arguments that have been made, but I will make a few observations on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Housebuilding (17 Jul 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: Numbers matter, but so does the quality of new homes. I am sure that the Secretary of State will have seen some of the terrible stories in the national press, and I have seen some awful examples recently in my constituency. Why is it that someone can buy goods in a shop and have powers of redress, but if someone spends a fortune on a new home, they can sometimes struggle for months, if not...

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Topical Questions (13 Jul 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: When the Conservative manifesto was published, there was no mention of Crossrail 2. Will the Minister tell us whether that was by accident or design? When does he plan to make a decision on the business case?

Euratom Membership — [James Gray in the Chair] (12 Jul 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gray. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Ynys Môn (Albert Owen), who I thought spoke with a great depth of knowledge about this subject. For those of us who are not so close to the industry, I will talk about the scientific and some of the legal issues, some of which have already been raised, but there is an elephant in...

G20 (10 Jul 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: The Prime Minister talks about boosting trade, but what discussions has she had with other leaders about our open skies agreement with the USA, which depends on our relationship with the European Union. There is of course considerable concern for the aviation industry and airports such as Stansted, which plan ahead by 12 to 18 months. Time is very short.
