Unpaid Trial Work Periods (Prohibition) Bill (16 Mar 2018)

Jeremy Quin: My hon. Friend referred to his time as a parliamentary candidate. As we all know, as a parliamentary candidate one receives a lot of feedback whether we like it or not. One of the powerful points made by the hon. Member for Glasgow South (Stewart Malcolm McDonald) in his excellent speech was in relation to feedback from employers to prospective employees, an excellent idea that should be...

Unpaid Trial Work Periods (Prohibition) Bill (16 Mar 2018)

Jeremy Quin: I am listening carefully to the hon. Gentleman’s speech. Following on from the point made by my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Beckenham (Bob Stewart), how do we sort out the situation wherein someone comes in for work experience and is subsequently employed, because that can happen? It is a good thing for someone to come into an office environment, enjoy the role—it...

Refugees (Family Reunion) (No.2) Bill (16 Mar 2018)

Jeremy Quin: I respect the position that my hon. Friend took on the Dubs amendment when it was debated in this place. I have been pondering the remarks made earlier by the Chairman of the Home Affairs Committee, the right hon. Member for Normanton, Pontefract and Castleford (Yvette Cooper): her concern that children in Greece may not be coming to this country because of worries about our rules on whether...

Refugees (Family Reunion) (No.2) Bill (16 Mar 2018)

Jeremy Quin: My hon. Friend is making a powerful speech. Will he reiterate the point about the refugees whom we are seeking to support? This country has a powerful record of supporting refugees in situ in the region, where they are most vulnerable. It is also the most vulnerable of those whom we are bringing to safety on these shores. Will he address that point?

Building Safety (15 Mar 2018)

Jeremy Quin: I commend my right hon. Friend for swiftly updating the House. Many of our citizens are deeply concerned about fire risk and—I am afraid—sceptical of statements made by Governments of any colour. Will he remind the House of the quality and strength of the panel advising him on these important issues?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (14 Mar 2018)

Jeremy Quin: Last week, Horsham held an apprenticeship fair, building on the success that has seen a 70% reduction in youth unemployment since 2010. Nationally, we see increasing exports, increasing productivity and increasing real wages. Will my right hon. Friend again remind the House that it is that sustained economic performance that underpins our investment in our valued public services?

Spring Statement (13 Mar 2018)

Jeremy Quin: I welcome the projection that real wages will increase in the coming year, but that can continue in the longer term only if we improve our productivity. In that context, may I welcome not only what the Chancellor has said about human capital and long-term endeavour, but the improvements in productivity over the last six months?

Salisbury Incident (8 Mar 2018)

Jeremy Quin: This country is rightly praised around the world for the dedication of our police and our determination to follow proper process to ensure we come to the right conclusions before then acting with calm deliberation. Does my right hon. Friend agree that in these most awful and appalling of circumstances we need those attributes more than ever?

Mental Health Services: Children and Young People (8 Mar 2018)

Jeremy Quin: The CQC has recommended that Ofsted should be charged with looking at what schools are doing to support mental health. Will the Minister take that up with his ministerial colleagues in the Department for Education?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Defence Co-operation (5 Mar 2018)

Jeremy Quin: Will my right hon. Friend inform the House about what discussions he has with his US counterpart so that we can work together to ensure that our other NATO allies pay the 2% of GDP that they should be paying towards our collective defence?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Virgin Trains East Coast (1 Mar 2018)

Jeremy Quin: I am absolutely going to. In respect of the proposed alternatives to the current east coast franchise, has the Secretary of State seen President Macron’s recent remarks about the nationalised French railways, and has he any remarks to make on them?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (1 Mar 2018)

Jeremy Quin: Last weekend, and so completely unrelated to the current weather, Southern rail passengers at Redhill suffered the most appalling, shambolic and potentially dangerous scenes. I appreciate that underlying that situation might be the extremely good investment programme, but what assurances has the Minister received that these awful scenes will not be repeated?

Pensions Auto-enrolment (28 Feb 2018)

Jeremy Quin: I am grateful for the opportunity to speak, Mr Davies. I am most grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Chippenham (Michelle Donelan) for calling this debate. Too often, we come to the Chamber to have a good moan about things, but I sincerely hope that we have cross-party agreement today. Auto-enrolment should be warmly praised on both sides of the House, because it has been a great...

Homelessness: Department for Transport (27 Feb 2018)

Jeremy Quin: Notwithstanding the weather, the House should be basking in the warm glow of success, at least as regards productivity. I am delighted to say that, just at the point when the Office for Budget Responsibility threw in the towel and gave up, we embarked on the first period of sustained improvement in productivity for seven years. Maintaining that is critical, and, as has been agreed on both...

Royal Assent: Motability (8 Feb 2018)

Jeremy Quin: I am pleased to follow the Chairman of the Select Committee. In the recent past, with regard to BHS, his Committee and this House have raised grave concerns about corporate governance in private companies. Does my right hon. Friend agree that those concerns are particularly pertinent when private companies are so reliant on the public sector? If she shares those concerns, will she ensure that...

Capita (1 Feb 2018)

Jeremy Quin: If I understand the Minister correctly, this company is raising funds from its shareholders in order to strengthen its balance sheet, enhance its pension fund and invest money in its core business. These corporate actions should be welcomed on both sides of the House. Does he share my frustration that the attitude of the Opposition towards the private sector seems to be, “You’re...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Engineering Careers (29 Jan 2018)

Jeremy Quin: What steps the Government are taking to encourage more young people to consider careers in engineering.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Engineering Careers (29 Jan 2018)

Jeremy Quin: Students from Collyer’s in my constituency came first in the UK national robotics competition and proceeded to represent their country in Washington. Does my right hon. Friend agree that this is exactly the kind of innovative initiative that gets people interested in STEM—science, technology, engineering and maths—subjects and will persuade them to take them up as careers in...
