Leaving the EU (9 Jul 2018)

Andrea Jenkyns: In my constituency, 60% voted to leave the EU. Within 48 hours of the Prime Minister’s statement on Friday, I received over 300 emails—disheartened, dismayed and telling me that democracy is dead. Will the Prime Minister tell the House how she plans to restore faith in my constituents that this is not a sell-out?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (6 Jun 2018)

Andrea Jenkyns: We all appreciate what an extremely difficult job the Prime Minister has in striving for the best possible deal for our country regarding Brexit, but has the time not come to reiterate to our EU friends, echoing the words of the Prime Minister herself, that no deal is better than a bad deal? In what circumstances is she prepared to walk away from the negotiations, saving the British taxpayer...

Fur Trade — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (4 Jun 2018)

Andrea Jenkyns: It is an honour to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. I thank the hon. Member for Cambridge (Daniel Zeichner) for securing such an important debate. I start by congratulating my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs and my hon. Friend the Minister on their work so far in leading the way on tackling animal cruelty. However, we still have a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (4 Jun 2018)

Andrea Jenkyns: The people of Morley and Outwood want to see more police officers on the streets. What are the Government doing to recruit more police officers, particularly in West Yorkshire?

Sale of Puppies — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (21 May 2018)

Andrea Jenkyns: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Austin. I thank the hon. Member for Linlithgow and East Falkirk (Martyn Day) for introducing the debate following the fantastic public response to the e-petition. I will keep my speech as short as possible, because several Members want to speak about this important issue. It must be said that the leadership on animal welfare by the...

Sale of Puppies — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (21 May 2018)

Andrea Jenkyns: My hon. Friend stole what I was going to say. I am sure every Member in the Chamber pays tribute to Marc. His passion has been second to none, so I thank him for all of his hard work. After an initial meeting with Pup Aid, I discovered to my horror that my own dog, Godiva, was probably born on a puppy farm in Lincolnshire. The pet outlet in Lincolnshire where I purchased her looked clean and...

Sale of Puppies — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (21 May 2018)

Andrea Jenkyns: I agree. I, too, have been out on the beat, so to speak, with our local RSPCA and have seen the conditions in which some poor animals live. My hon. Friend is right: education can do a lot to help tackle that. Lucy, the Cavalier King Charles spaniel, endured a miserable start to her life. Her poor body had been ravaged after cruel puppy farmers, eager to sell as many young as they could in the...

Sale of Puppies — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (21 May 2018)

Andrea Jenkyns: I wholeheartedly agree. As I said, when I bought Godiva, I made that mistake: having paid £550 for her, I thought she would have been from a decent, legitimate organisation, but clearly that was not the case. Lucy died in December 2016, and I am happy to say that her later years were happier than her beginnings. We must do more to save countless other animals from suffering similar...

Sale of Puppies — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (21 May 2018)

Andrea Jenkyns: I thank the hon. Lady for that intervention. I remind everyone that, as my hon. Friend the Member for Clacton (Giles Watling) has said, education is key to moving forward and ensuring that we save as many animals as possible.

Infection Prevention and Control — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (15 May 2018)

Andrea Jenkyns: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Howarth. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon) on securing a debate on a matter that is of great personal importance to me, as I lost my own father to MRSA that he caught in hospital. In 2011 my dad, Clifford, went into hospital for a routine operation to drain fluid from his lungs. What should have been a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Commonwealth: Diplomatic Relations (15 May 2018)

Andrea Jenkyns: What steps his Department is taking to strengthen bilateral relations with Commonwealth countries.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Commonwealth: Diplomatic Relations (15 May 2018)

Andrea Jenkyns: Intra-Commonwealth trade is expected to increase to £1 trillion by 2020, which is up from £560 billion recorded in 2016. However, Commonwealth nations take just 9% of UK exports of goods and services. Does my right hon. Friend agree that, post Brexit, bilateral trade relations with the Commonwealth will be more important than ever and will provide us with an exciting opportunity to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (9 May 2018)

Andrea Jenkyns: Yesterday, with my hon. Friend the Member for Romford (Andrew Rosindell), we launched the One Britain One Nation all-party group, which will be working with schools to promote pride in our country, and respect, tolerance and inclusion regardless of one’s background. Will the Prime Minister join me in paying tribute to the founder of One Britain One Nation, Kash Singh, for the hard work...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 Apr 2018)

Andrea Jenkyns: Morley Newlands Academy scored “outstanding” during a recent Ofsted inspection, and Bruntcliffe Academy in Morley scored “good” for the very first time in its history. Will the Prime Minister confirm to the House that an additional 1.8 million children since 2010 are now taught in “good” and “outstanding” schools, under this Conservative...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Service Animals (24 Apr 2018)

Andrea Jenkyns: I congratulate hon. Members for their work in this area. As an animal rights campaigner, I think it is simply wrong that criminal damage is the highest charge that can be brought to punish someone who attacks a service animal. What are the Government doing to change the legal oversight, to protect our brave service animals, and to ensure that those who attack and injure service animals are...

Rating (Property in Common Occupation) and Council Tax (Empty Dwellings) Bill (Ways and Means): Higher Education (23 Apr 2018)

Andrea Jenkyns: I was the first person in the family to go to university, and I did not go until I was 40 when I was fighting a general election campaign. Teaching quality was important for mature students like me, so does my hon. Friend agree that the Office for Students will help to improve that?

Rating (Property in Common Occupation) and Council Tax (Empty Dwellings) Bill (Ways and Means): Higher Education (23 Apr 2018)

Andrea Jenkyns: Does my hon. Friend agree that it was Labour Members who brought in tuition fees in the first place?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Topical Questions (23 Apr 2018)

Andrea Jenkyns: Following on from what has been said earlier about the cadet force, does the Minister agree that the cadets are a great introduction to military life, because as well as giving children positive role models, they help to promote social mobility? Will he update the House on what steps the Department is taking to encourage the participation of state schools in the cadet movement?

Leaving the EU: Tourism and the Creative Industries — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (17 Apr 2018)

Andrea Jenkyns: Is it not the case that the UK is a world leader in intellectual property and will remain so after Brexit? If we choose to, we can join the European Patent Organisation, which already has non-EU countries as members?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Productivity (17 Apr 2018)

Andrea Jenkyns: What fiscal steps his Department is taking to increase productivity.
