Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (1 Oct 2019)

Julian Knight: I am sure whatever cachet I had has now been completely ruined; thank you, Mr Speaker. There are reports that the Government are looking at bringing forward the date of the banning of diesel and petrol cars. Does the Chancellor share my concerns about the fiscal damage of lower new car sales, the lack of electric car infrastructure and the negligible impact that such a virtue-signalling move...

Petition - Morrisons Supermarket Shirley (26 Sep 2019)

Julian Knight: After two days of verbal perambulations in this place, we have finally come to the main event. I rise to register my constituents’ deep concerns about the proposals to close the Morrisons store in Shirley. The Shirley store has served our community for over 14 years. It employs almost 100 people and is relied upon by many in the surrounding area. I thank our local Shirley councillors,...

Prorogation of Parliament — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (9 Sep 2019)

Julian Knight: As ever, my hon. Friend is doing sterling work in presenting the petitions. The hon. Member for Hornsey and Wood Green (Catherine West) mentioned the number of 100,000; he mentioned the number of 1.1 million—those people who signed the first petition. I have another number for him: 17,410,742. That is the number of people who voted to leave the EU, but due to parliamentary artifice, they...

Prorogation of Parliament — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (9 Sep 2019)

Julian Knight: My hon. Friend inadvertently makes the case for a Queen’s Speech. In reality, the Government have been splitting up Bills to ensure that parliamentary time is used up. We need a new agenda, and a new raft of legislation to put before the House, so that people can see Parliament do something other than argue over and frustrate Brexit. That would restore their confidence in Parliament.

Prorogation of Parliament — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (9 Sep 2019)

Julian Knight: A perverse situation would arise from a confirmatory referendum: it would almost predicate us getting a very bad deal, because the EU knows that if it gives us a bad deal, people will vote not to accept it. Frankly, it is Hobson’s choice.

Speaker’S Statement: Business of the House (25 Jul 2019)

Julian Knight: As we break for some restoration and renewal during the recess, my constituents’ lives are being blighted by two things: inconsiderate garden grabbing with no social purpose whatever, and the stealing of car parts to order. May we have a debate in Government time on those twin menaces, and on how we can reform the law to help my constituents?

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Continuing Care: Finance (25 Jul 2019)

Julian Knight: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what steps his Department is taking to allow individuals in receipt of continuing healthcare funding to transfer their funding between CCGs in the event they move home.

Written Answers — Department for Education: Care Leavers: Housing (11 Jul 2019)

Julian Knight: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what steps he is taking to ensure that local authorities house care leavers in an area close to their foster parents, should both parties wish, even if the foster placement was facilitated by another local authority and do not meet the residential time limit qualification.

Higher Technical Education Reform (8 Jul 2019)

Julian Knight: My hon. Friend will have seen the announcement last week by Jaguar Land Rover of a massive new investment in the Castle Bromwich branch near my constituency. It is a real vote of confidence in our nation, despite Brexit. However, JLR needs an enhanced skills base. Does he agree that raising awareness of any new qualifications is key, so that they are not just alphabet soup, and so that we...

Supply and Appropriation (Main Estimates) (No. 3) Bill: Dangerous Drugs (3 Jul 2019)

Julian Knight: I am relieved that the Minister specifically mentions Spice; having worked for a short time in the Ministry of Justice, I have seen exactly the damage that comes from that drug. Will he confirm that this statutory instrument is in effect simply a tidying-up exercise—a technical change—and will not in any way mean a looser regime of drug licence management?

Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Bill (25 Jun 2019)

Julian Knight: My hon. Friend gets to the heart of the matter: the fault aspect. What persuades me is that the requirement to assign fault can itself be a polluting element within the divorce or separation process. It may actually make what could be a more amicable separation more poisonous and more difficult when it comes to discussing other matters such as finance.

Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Bill (25 Jun 2019)

Julian Knight: My hon. Friend is absolutely correct and makes another persuasive point, because it means that a divorce is based on a lie. Frankly, we should not have any lies in a legal process. Years ago, I remember reading Evelyn Waugh’s “A Handful of Dust”, in which a character has to abscond to Brighton, seemingly with a woman, to provide the grounds for a divorce. This stuff is from 40 or 50...

Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Bill (25 Jun 2019)

Julian Knight: As ever, my hon. Friend is making a thoughtful and compassionate contribution to the debate. I agree with the tenets of the Bill and I slightly disagree with some aspects of her speech. We need to take confrontation out of the break-up process. I certainly agree with her that we need to signpost people towards relationship counselling services. In effect, as part of the trade-off in allowing...

Petition - Climate Change: Bank Holidays in 2020 (18 Jun 2019)

Julian Knight: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this debate and add my support to the bank holiday idea. I recently read through the biography I wrote of my grandfather, who was a 17-year-old paratrooper—they used to lie about their age—in northern France and Germany in 1945; it addressed that time and when he came home. Does my hon. Friend agree that it is not unusual to mark the end of wars...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Transport: Technology (11 Jun 2019)

Julian Knight: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what steps he is taking to maximise the opportunities that new transport technologies are creating for cleaner, cheaper, safer and more reliable journeys.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Bus Services: Travel Information (11 Jun 2019)

Julian Knight: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what steps his Department is taking to provide more live information to bus users; and if he will make a statement.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Aviation: Females (11 Jun 2019)

Julian Knight: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what assessment he has made of the effect of the Women in Aviation and Aerospace Charter on improving gender equality in aviation; and if he will make a statement.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: NHS: Mental Health (11 Jun 2019)

Julian Knight: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what steps he is taking to protect the mental health of NHS staff.
