Parking (Code of Practice) Bill (2 Feb 2018)

Julian Knight: I was going to regale the House with a whole litany of complaints, but everyone will be happy that I am not going to do that because Members from all parties have shown their unanimity on this issue. There is unanimous support for the Bill, and I completely concur with my right hon. Friend the Member for East Yorkshire (Sir Greg Knight). Much of my postbag and email inbox is taken up by...

Parking (Code of Practice) Bill (2 Feb 2018)

Julian Knight: I thank my right hon. Friend for being so generous in giving way. Does he agree that these parking companies often indulge in what I term confusion marketing in the car parks they manage? There are signs that say different times and days, and when Members of Parliament point out these quite fundamental problems in their systems, the companies often write off the fine but do not rectify the...

Baby Leave for Members of Parliament: Hospital Car Parking Charges (1 Feb 2018)

Julian Knight: My right hon. Friend is being most generous. I should declare that I am the joint chair of the all-party parliamentary group for fair fuel for UK motorists and UK hauliers. I have tremendous sympathy with my right hon. Friend in this respect and have campaigned hard on hospital parking charges in my own constituency. However, one difficulty I have in squaring the circle is the fact that my...

Refugees and Human Rights (24 Jan 2018)

Julian Knight: It is a great pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Tooting (Dr Allin-Khan), who made an excellent speech. For the past two decades, Great Britain has had an excellent track record of putting its money where its mouth is on human rights and refugees. We are the second-biggest contributor to the United Nations and the sixth-largest donor to its peacekeeping budget. We operate one of the...

Refugees and Human Rights (24 Jan 2018)

Julian Knight: I did not realise that was going to be such a long intervention, but I thank the hon. Lady. I am aware of and really welcome the work that she mentions, and what she does in support of that group is absolutely fantastic. One group that I wish to mention briefly is Solihull Welcome, a project run by Churches Together in Central Solihull. In the hall of St Augustine’s Catholic church, a...

Personal Independence Payment (23 Jan 2018)

Julian Knight: Thank you, Mr Speaker. I had a one-in-two chance. I warmly welcome my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State to her place and welcome her talk of engagement. Will she commit to providing specific guidance to MPs’ offices and council contact centres at the earliest possible opportunity?

Points of Order: Financial Guidance and Claims Bill [Lords] (22 Jan 2018)

Julian Knight: I shall keep my comments relatively brief, Madam Deputy Speaker, mainly because I have a chest infection and I do not think my voice will hold for too long. The Government’s decision to move ahead with a much-needed overhaul of the financial guidance system is welcome. Likewise, it is important to put in place protections for pension savers. My hon. Friend the Member for East...

BBC Pay (9 Jan 2018)

Julian Knight: Does the Secretary of State share my disquiet, as an ex-BBC journalist, about any attempts in BBC policy to stop reporters reporting on this issue? Does he also share my concerns that a culture of unequal pay and ageism against women runs throughout the organisation right down to broadcast assistant level, and does not just affect a few household names at the top?

Russian Interference in Uk Politics (21 Dec 2017)

Julian Knight: Part of the reason we are finding it so difficult to establish the impact is the lack of information coming from the social media companies. Will my right hon. Friend therefore join me in calling on Facebook in particular to co-operate thoroughly with the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee inquiry?

Russian Interference in Uk Politics (21 Dec 2017)

Julian Knight: I concur with many of the speeches we have heard today. I believe this is a major threat to our democracy, to western democracy and to our way of life. It is probably the biggest threat I have experienced since the fall of the Berlin wall. At that time, there was a book written by an academic called Fukuyama about the end of history and suggesting that liberal democracy was effectively the...

Russian Interference in Uk Politics (21 Dec 2017)

Julian Knight: I congratulate the right hon. Gentleman on leading this debate. Does he agree that part of the reason that most of the hard evidence seems to come only from Twitter is because Facebook does not co-operate as it should in order to get to the root of these problems?

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

Julian Knight: Does the Minister agree that auto-enrolment has been a success to date and it is right to lower it to the age of 18, but that politicians—of all hues—and the pensions industry must work together to meet the savings and pension challenges facing this country?

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

Julian Knight: In 2015, the Heart of England hospital trust, which serves Solihull, got itself into major trouble due to poor management. In response, the management of University Hospitals Birmingham under Dame Julie Moore was brought in to take charge. As a result, finances, patient care and staff morale have improved considerably. Would the Prime Minister join me in praising my brilliant local NHS staff...

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

Julian Knight: Is the hon. Gentleman’s principled personal stance on the single market and the customs union shared by his party leader—yes or no?

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

Julian Knight: I am certainly not looking forward to dinner now. There is no question whatsoever about the hon. Gentleman’s principled stand. He has said clearly, as he stated in his election leaflet, that he would stand in support of the customs union and the single market. I ask him again, however, whether he thinks that his leader also supports that. What does he think of colleagues in his own...

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

Julian Knight: My hon. Friend is being most generous in taking so many interventions. Does he agree that when it comes to the EU and democracy, time and again whenever there have been referendums on the EU, people have been asked to go back, change their minds and vote again? That is not going to happen in this country—in this sovereign nation.
