Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Darren Jones: The Minister says that the guidance should come out early, but it is already too late in respect of direct applicability of the general data protection regulation for many businesses, which may need to carry out major systems changes if guidance says something that they are not expecting based on interpretation of the article. Will he say to the ICO that, where guidance is late and that makes...

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Darren Jones: I declare my interest as set out in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. I pay tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Warwick and Leamington (Matt Western) for the excellent curry in his constituency. As one of the few vegan MPs, I will happily visit and partake of the curried tofu if there is a vegan option; perhaps it will be better than that served in the Members’...

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Darren Jones: I agree with that sentiment. Dare I say it, but very few Government Members are present? Although my right hon. Friend the Member for East Ham said this may be an anorak issue, it is in fact crucial to our economy, our new civil liberties and the type of country we want to live in. We should be having such a debate, and I again restate our request that we should do so in this House not only...

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Darren Jones: With respect to the Minister, I am not persuaded that that will be agreed by the European Commission. Of course ECJ jurisprudence will be Supreme Court jurisprudence in this country and will be referenced by judges in that Court, but without a statutory anchor ensuring that the fundamental right is, in their view, in favour of the consumer and the data subject, we risk divergence on the...

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Darren Jones: I stress my agreement with the hon. Gentleman’s remarks about these sharing systems. An example given to me by the Avon and Somerset constabulary involved the awful case of a member of the public viewing child pornography live in this country. Through data-sharing with the continent, the police services in Spain were able to raid the person delivering the data and bring to an end the...

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Darren Jones: On the point about what the general data protection regulation provides as an opportunity, does the Minister recognise that it will actually be implemented through a statutory instrument under the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill? Does he agree that we should therefore have a debate in the House on that SI when we get the opportunity?

Clean Growth Strategy (12 Oct 2017)

Darren Jones: My constituency already has onshore wind, solar generation and new battery storage technologies, but we have to seize the opportunities of tidal power, district heating from my local industrial estate of Avonmouth and the power of co-operatively owned generation, storage and distribution. Does the Minister agree that the investment that Governments make to create new markets is an important...

The Arts: Health Effects (11 Oct 2017)

Darren Jones: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Dorries. I congratulate the right hon. Member for Wantage (Mr Vaizey) on securing this important debate. I agree with the Arts Council, which says: “Art and culture make life better, help to build diverse communities and improve our quality of life.” As a Bristol MP, I am proud of the reputation my great city has in support...

Leaving the EU: Consumer Protection — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Oct 2017)

Darren Jones: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Streeter, and I congratulate the hon. Member for Chelmsford (Vicky Ford) on securing this debate and on her excellent opening remarks. I declare my interests, as in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests: previously I was a legal counsel at BT responsible for, among other things, consumer law compliance. The UK is a leader in...

Leaving the EU: Consumer Protection — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Oct 2017)

Darren Jones: But the issue with unaffordability comes at the departure gate when customers who use comparison websites and book flights they can afford based on the ticket price alone have no choice but to take the flight and go on their summer holiday with their children or go home. That is why additional charges need to be highlighted effectively and why families need the ability to enforce their...

NHS Pay (13 Sep 2017)

Darren Jones: I thank the hon. Lady for allowing me to intervene. She clearly wishes to champion nurses and their selfless desire to serve the public, but does she acknowledge that nurses in my constituency have to visit a food bank after a long shift at the hospital? Should not their selflessness in wanting to serve the public be recognised by their being paid what they deserve so that they can fund...

Bill Presented: Scheduling of Parliamentary Business (17 Jul 2017)

Darren Jones: I pay tribute to the hon. Member for Angus (Kirstene Hair) and my hon. Friend the Member for Battersea (Marsha De Cordova) for their maiden speeches. I pay particular tribute to my hon. Friend, who, as I was, was one of the unexpected winners that brought my party some steps closer to being the party of government. With the greatest of respect to right hon. and hon. colleagues, I have...

Bill Presented: Scheduling of Parliamentary Business (17 Jul 2017)

Darren Jones: Of course I would not class the Leader of the House in that group of middle-aged men—but I am sure that she knows each and every one of them as they vie for the leadership of her party and, perhaps, try to take her position. When Britain faces arguably her most challenging time since the second world war, with decisions taken here in this Parliament deciding what type of country Britain...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: New Homes for Social Rent (17 Jul 2017)

Darren Jones: What assessment he has made of the trend in the number of new homes available for social rent since 2010.

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: New Homes for Social Rent (17 Jul 2017)

Darren Jones: Tens of thousands of Bristolians are waiting for a council house and many more are stuck in expensive, insecure and inadequate private sector housing. Many of these tenants are young families who feel disempowered and stuck in a system that does not care. Will the Secretary of State visit my constituency in Bristol to see at first hand how his supposed radical reform is failing my...

G20 (10 Jul 2017)

Darren Jones: I thank the Prime Minister for her statement and note her efforts to reform the World Trade Organisation rules in order that they keep up with the services and digital sectors, which are crucial to the British economy. Does she agree that any reform of the WTO rules will take longer than the time we have left before the UK crashes out of EU without a trade deal in 2019?

Brexit and Foreign Affairs (26 Jun 2017)

Darren Jones: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker, for calling me to give my maiden speech. Being elected as the Member of Parliament for my home constituency of Bristol North West is deeply humbling. It is humbling for me personally, as a working-class kid from a council estate in Lawrence Weston in my constituency. To be able to speak here on behalf of my friends, my family, my community and, indeed, my country...
