Esa Underpayments: Business of the House (19 Jul 2018)

Chris Elmore: Under new data protection rules, subject access requests to GP practices and NHS services can no longer be charged for. I have received a deputation from GP surgeries in my constituency saying that this is already causing undue cost to them. May we have a statement, either from the Department of Health and Social Care or from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, to explain...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Industrial Strategy (17 Jul 2018)

Chris Elmore: One of the challenges but also opportunities for the Government’s industrial strategy is working with the devolved Administrations. Can the Minister set out what discussions she has had with the Welsh Government to ensure that the long-term industrial strategy supports industries such as Ford in Bridgend, which employs many hundreds of workers in my constituency?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (16 Jul 2018)

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Offenders: Help to Find Employment (10 Jul 2018)

Chris Elmore: The Justice Secretary will know that there is no women’s prison in Wales and I am not advocating that there should be one. However, that will mean that there are considerable issues of geography for some women who do commit offences, so can he set out how he is able to support women who do offend, who live in Wales and who wish to relocate there in order to find employment in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Demolition of Khan al-Ahmar (4 Jul 2018)

Chris Elmore: Like the Minister, I had the privilege of vesting Khan al-Ahmar just last September. Part of the site includes a school with 170 children that was part-funded by the EU, so will the Minister set out what representations he has made to the Israeli Government for reparations if the school is to be demolished? The EU and the British Government must be far stricter, because this situation...

Treasury Spending: Grants to Devolved Institutions (3 Jul 2018)

Chris Elmore: In addition to the provision of the DUP bung, Wales has lost £1.2 billion, or 7%, since 2010, so we are talking about a 7% real- terms cut. Despite that and despite the myths peddled by the Government, health and social care spending in Wales is still higher per head of population than in England. Does the hon. Lady agree that we should talk in facts and that the real-terms cuts...

LGBT Action Plan (3 Jul 2018)

Chris Elmore: The Minister’s announcement today on the banning of so-called gay conversion therapies is obviously enormously welcome. As part of the process, as she looks to legislation or other processes with the Home Office, will she also try to ensure that such disgusting treatments do not go underground? Will she ensure that people are not able to access them in other countries? What...

The Minister for Women and Equalities Was Asked: Period Poverty (28 Jun 2018)

Energy Policy (25 Jun 2018)

Chris Elmore: Part of the role of government is that a Secretary of State will have a vision for delivering and a vision for ideas. The Secretary of State has shown today that he does not have any vision for delivering services and improvements to the economy for the people of south Wales. We have had the scrapping of electrification and we are clearly no further forward with various projects the British...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Rural Broadband and Mobile Coverage (21 Jun 2018)

The three and a half valleys that I represent, the Ogmore, Garw, Llynfi and Gilfach valleys, have massive problems with mobile phones signals, so please can she make sure she does not forget them?

Attorney General: Tackling Economic Crime (21 Jun 2018)

Chris Elmore: The Attorney General may be aware of correspondence I have been having with the Solicitor General about my constituent Alun Richards. There is a growing campaign across the House in relation to banking fraud, specifically in relation to Lloyds, rather than just the Royal Bank of Scotland. The SFO will not investigate. I understand it is independent but may I urge the Attorney General to give...
