Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Peter Heaton-Jones: The hon. Lady is being generous with her time. Much as I am loth to take the focus away from the Liberal Democrats, there is still some confusion about the Labour position. Only five days ago, the shadow Brexit Secretary said: “We’re not calling for it. We respect the result of the first referendum. But we’re not ruling out a second referendum.”

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Peter Heaton-Jones: I do not know if other Members feel like this, but I feel like we have disappeared down the rabbit hole in “Alice in Wonderland” with the Liberal Democrats’ motion. They are calling for a second referendum, but the right hon. Member for Twickenham (Sir Vince Cable) described those who voted leave in the first referendum as old people driven by nostalgia for a world of white...

Health and Social Care (National Data Guardian) Bill (6 Jul 2018)

Peter Heaton-Jones: It is a pleasure to be called so early in this debate to speak on the Bill. I particularly wanted to do so to give it my fulsome support, but also because I had the pleasure—and it was a pleasure—to serve on the Bill Committee for the Data Protection Act 2018. We had 10 sittings over five days, and fascinating it was, too. What came out of that Committee was a much improved Bill,...

Health and Social Care (National Data Guardian) Bill (6 Jul 2018)

Peter Heaton-Jones: I hope for both. It is really important that we do not rest on our laurels and simply say that the powers currently held by the guardian are sufficient. She must be given the right to look forward to ensure that in future, as technology changes and advances—as it inevitably will—she is able to encourage other stakeholders, lawfully and in a secure way, to ensure that the data that...

Health and Social Care (National Data Guardian) Bill (6 Jul 2018)

Peter Heaton-Jones: That is absolutely the case. I touched on why the new technology that will be used for healthcare provision is so important, particularly in rural areas such as ours, in North Cornwall and North Devon. We need to ensure that everybody is sure that their data is securely held, processed and used. In areas where these healthcare technology advances would be particularly beneficial, such as my...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Universal Credit: Roll-out (2 Jul 2018)

Peter Heaton-Jones: What recent steps the Government have taken to ensure that universal credit is rolled out effectively.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Universal Credit: Roll-out (2 Jul 2018)

Peter Heaton-Jones: This Wednesday sees the roll-out of full-service universal credit in North Devon. Will the Secretary of State join me in acknowledging the hard work of Jobcentre Plus staff in ensuring the smoothest possible transition for all claimants?

Armed Forces Veterans (28 Jun 2018)

Peter Heaton-Jones: I feel that I have perorated, Madam Deputy Speaker. Thank you.

Armed Forces Veterans (28 Jun 2018)

Peter Heaton-Jones: I relish this opportunity to raise this important issue, which is hugely significant—not only to my constituents in North Devon, but across the country. It is, of course, extremely significant at the moment, during the lead-up to Armed Forces Day on Saturday. It is worth saying, perhaps for the benefit of those watching these proceedings from outside, that no inference should be drawn...

Armed Forces Veterans (28 Jun 2018)

Peter Heaton-Jones: I am grateful to the hon. Lady for raising that case; it is another fine example of a charity that is doing fantastic work in this regard. The work done by such organisations, many of which we have not mentioned, is vital not least because research carried out by the Royal British Legion has found that social isolation and loneliness are now widely experienced among our veteran community, and...

Armed Forces Veterans (28 Jun 2018)

Peter Heaton-Jones: I will of course give way to a fellow Devon MP.

Armed Forces Veterans (28 Jun 2018)

Peter Heaton-Jones: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his comment, and that is precisely the point I am seeking to come on to. Signing up to the covenant is not enough; there needs to be active participation by those who sign on the dotted line. Another difficulty is that a lack of familiarity with the services available often prevents some veterans and their families from seeking the help and support that they...

Leaving the Eu: Upland Farming (26 Jun 2018)

Peter Heaton-Jones: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Pritchard. I congratulate the hon. Member for Carmarthen East and Dinefwr (Jonathan Edwards) on securing the debate. My interest in upland farming lies with Exmoor, and I am incredibly proud that about one third of the national park is in my constituency. For the record, the other two thirds are in the constituency of my parliamentary...

Leaving the Eu: Upland Farming (26 Jun 2018)

Peter Heaton-Jones: Yes, that is absolutely right. There are about 70 million day visits a year to national parks in this country, because of the landscape. Quite apart from the farming that goes on there, stewardship by upland farmers contributes to the fact that so many people want to visit those areas. The uplands are home to about 44% of England’s breeding ewes and 40% of its beef cows. I saw a small...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Ocean Conservation (26 Jun 2018)

Peter Heaton-Jones: What his policy is on global ocean conservation.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Ocean Conservation (26 Jun 2018)

Peter Heaton-Jones: Global ocean conservation must begin at home, so will the Minister join me in welcoming the many local initiatives around the coastline of Britain, which are playing such a vital role—particularly, I am bound to say, around the beautiful coastline of North Devon?

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (19 Jun 2018)

Peter Heaton-Jones: Northern Devon Healthcare Trust recently announced that it is to share the chairman and chief executive of the Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust. Will the Minister meet me to ensure that the new arrangements will help to secure services in North Devon?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Topical Questions (11 Jun 2018)

Peter Heaton-Jones: The Minister will be aware that I and the North Devon community have lobbied hard over the future of Royal Marines Base Chivenor. In the light of media reports over the weekend, is he able to confirm whether a decision is indeed imminent?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (24 May 2018)

Peter Heaton-Jones: A week ago today, the Government announced funding of £83 million for improvements to the north Devon link road. [Hon. Members: “Hear, hear!”] Indeed—hear, hear. I thank the Minister for that decision. Will he join me in congratulating Devon County Council on the brilliant bid that has got this funding?

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Data protection breaches by national news publishers (15 May 2018)

Peter Heaton-Jones: I will be extraordinarily brief because not much more needs to be said. The House’s view is settled and its will is clear. Those at the other end of this building are asking us to consider effectively a rehash of new clause 18, which this House debated at length, analysed and rejected. We defeated that new clause on Report and then on Third Reading. We do not need to rehearse those...
