Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Julian Knight: Does my hon. Friend agree that it is highly appropriate that this should be the first piece of oven-ready Brexit legislation, as that shows the importance of this industry and of safeguards in it?

Government Policy on the Proceedings of the House: Gypsies and Travellers and Local Communities (9 Oct 2017)

Julian Knight: I do not know whether you have ever visited Solihull, Mr Speaker, but it is blessed with many parks and other green and open spaces. I, like the rest of my town, was really looking forward to spending the summer enjoying those open spaces, but unfortunately we have attracted an unprecedented spate of Traveller incursions, which has tested Solihull Council’s defences and my...

Government Policy on the Proceedings of the House: Gypsies and Travellers and Local Communities (9 Oct 2017)

Julian Knight: The problem is, though, that there is no guarantee that the money would be spent on that. It could just fall into the general police budget.

Government Policy on the Proceedings of the House: Gypsies and Travellers and Local Communities (9 Oct 2017)

Julian Knight: That did not happen in my constituency, where we had the farce of people parking in the car park and receiving fines—these were legal motorists—which I then had to get overturned by the council. That again emphasises that there is one rule for one and another rule for another.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Pension Arrangements for Women (9 Oct 2017)

Julian Knight: Will the Minister further clarify that point? Labour says that the previous pension age could come back and that we could return to a situation where men are discriminated against. Does he agree that such discrimination might be profoundly against the law?

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (14 Sep 2017)

Julian Knight: If she will make a statement on her departmental responsibilities.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (14 Sep 2017)

Julian Knight: It will be worth waiting for. The west midlands creative industry punches well above its weight, yet over the years we have seen poor investment from the BBC and, to a lesser extent, ITV. Is there not a great opportunity for Channel 4 to make use of our diverse communities and talent, blaze a trail, and relocate to the west midlands?

NHS Pay (13 Sep 2017)

Julian Knight: My right hon. Friend does not even need to cite the IFS to see what things would be like with Labour in charge of the UK NHS—he just needs to look to Wales, where the NHS has been cut by 10% and one in seven people are on the NHS waiting list. That is Labour in action.

Sky/Fox Merger (12 Sep 2017)

Julian Knight: I congratulate the Secretary of State on her steady handling of this sensitive issue. She clearly shares with me and other hon. Members concerns about pressure on Members from third-party organisations outside this place representing what is, in essence, a quasi-judicial process as something that it clearly is not. Will she make it very clear that we have to avoid histrionics and instead get...

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

Julian Knight: Personal finance education in schools is a key way of skilling up young people, so will the Minister meet me soon to discuss further plans to make available to schools a textbook on personal finance education through the all-party group on financial education for young people?

Letting Agent Fees (Tenants) — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (6 Sep 2017)

Julian Knight: I refer the House to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. I am both a landlord and, like many in this House, a tenant. I rent out my family home, and I rent a home in my constituency. I have scribbled out part of my speech, not just because of the time limit but because of the excellence of the speech by my hon. Friend the Member for Thirsk and Malton (Kevin...

Letting Agent Fees (Tenants) — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (6 Sep 2017)

Julian Knight: I take my hon. Friend’s point entirely; I am greatly in sympathy with him. However, in the case of an independent landlord doing the checking in and checking out, if it is not done properly and agreed with the tenant at the time, under the tenant deposit scheme any withdrawal of money or holding back of the deposit means it becomes null and void, so there is an onus on the landlord to...

Letting Agent Fees (Tenants) — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (6 Sep 2017)

Julian Knight: My hon. Friend is making an excellent and balanced speech. He mentioned that there has been no decline in the number of letting agents in Scotland since the new regime. How does he account for that? What is the key reason why the industry has continued to prosper?

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Relief from Non-Domestic Rates) Bill: Relief from local non-domestic rates: occupied hereditaments (5 Sep 2017)

Julian Knight: I thank the Minister for giving way—he is being most generous in allowing interventions. In 2015 and last year, Solihull enjoyed a higher growth rate than China, but it is still one of the poorest areas for broadband provision, particularly business provision. The Minister can imagine what more could be achieved if we had better broadband, so the Bill is very welcome, as is the £60...

Bills Presented: Tuition Fees (19 Jul 2017)

Julian Knight: At the general election, the Labour party managed to rally an extraordinary number of young people to its cause—in one constituency, it even had young people standing on roundabouts with “Vote Labour” signs. I am sure many Labour Members will concede that they have those votes to thank for their place in this House today. It is not difficult to see why students were tempted:...
