Dan Carden: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what assessment he has made of the potential implications for the stability of the region, including the potential for destabilisation and violence, of the US Government recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Dan Carden: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, whether he received reports that US President Donald Trump is set to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Dan Carden: To ask the Prime Minister, what discussions she has had with US President Donald Trump on (a) his proposal to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem and (b) US recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel; and if she will make a statement.
Dan Carden: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what property his Department (a) leases and (b) owns in Liverpool Walton constituency.

Dan Carden: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, when the proportion of the £28m announced in Autumn Budget 2017 for housing first pilot scheme and allocated to the Liverpool City Region will be released to City Region leaders.
Dan Carden: To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, what grants her Department has allocated to arts projects in Liverpool Walton constituency in each of the last three years.
Dan Carden: One thing that frustrates many people who have an interest in this debate is the fact that national leaders seek to blame local leaders. It is very clear that responsibility lies with the Minister. We had promises from the Chancellor. It was the Government that announced the scrapping of tolls on the Severn crossing. Is it not right to expect a real answer from the Minister today and not...
Dan Carden: To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, what property (a) his Department and (b) HM Revenue and Customs (I) leases or (ii) owns in Liverpool Walton constituency.
Dan Carden: To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, how many staff HM Revenue and Customs employ in Liverpool Walton constituency.
Dan Carden: The reality of life in our prisons is one of inexperienced prison officers dealing with more violent and dangerous situations on a daily basis, and that is a direct result of this Government’s cutting 7,000 prison officers. They have now slammed that into reverse to recruit 2,500 officers, as has been announced today. There are prison officers in the Gallery today who are visiting on a...
Dan Carden: It seems that the Conservatives want to be seen to be softening the language on austerity and on pay caps, but in truth we see no action. Does my hon. Friend agree?
Dan Carden: It is a pleasure to speak in the debate. I had not intended to speak, but having listened to all the contributions from my colleagues, I felt it was worth making some remarks and perhaps focusing on some of the services in my constituency that have been most affected by public sector pay restraint. It is a pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Warrington North (Helen Jones), who...
Dan Carden: Having seen that at first hand, I could not agree more. It is worth noting that the Prison Officers Association is lobbying Parliament tomorrow; I hope many colleagues can get along to that. I must touch on Aintree Hospital, which is also in my constituency. Nurses there have faced a 14% pay cut since 2010, and one in four are taking jobs outside their employment as nurses to make ends meet...
Dan Carden: No, I will not. We are starting to realise that the race to the bottom is one that we all stand to lose. The sooner Government Members realise that, the better off our and their constituents will be.
Dan Carden: I, too, congratulate my hon. Friend. Aintree University Hospital is in my constituency. Nurses have had a 14% pay cut in real terms since 2010 and one in four of them are taking on additional employment to make ends meet. What does that say about the state of our economy?
Dan Carden: The Leader of the House might remember that my first question to her, back in June, was about gun crime and police cuts, following 10 such incidents in my constituency that month. It has not gone unnoticed that there was no mention of police cuts continuing in the Budget last week. More and more of my constituents are raising crime and fear of crime as one of the blights on their lives, and...
Dan Carden: What recent assessment he has made of trends in rail passenger usage.
Dan Carden: Since 2010, rail fares have risen by 27%, at twice the rate of wages, and the steepest fare hikes for five years are due in January. Meanwhile, passenger numbers are declining, and more and more of my constituents are being priced out of rail travel altogether. When will the Government accept that the whole system of rail franchising and private profiteering from our railways is utterly broken?
Dan Carden: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, how many more people were registered to vote as of 1 November 2017 than was the case at the time of the publication of the official 2015 electoral register in (a) Liverpool, Walton constituency, (b) Liverpool and (c) the North West.
