European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Regulations to deal with deficiencies arising from withdrawal - Independent Report (12 Dec 2017)

Dan Carden: The hon. Gentleman has talked about the importance of language in this debate. Should we not all be worried by the actions of this Government over the latest rise in tuition fees, where they refused a vote in this House and ignored an Opposition day debate? The actions of this Government should worry us all when we look ahead to these future arrangements.

Finance (No. 2) Bill (11 Dec 2017)

Dan Carden: Was my hon. Friend surprised, as I was, that the Financial Secretary did not mention wages once? He did not mention that real wages will not return to pre-crash levels for almost a decade. Do this Government care about people’s wages?

Tolls on the Mersey Crossings — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (5 Dec 2017)

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...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Prison Officers: Safety (5 Dec 2017)

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...

Public Sector Pay — [David Hanson in the Chair] (4 Dec 2017)

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?

Public Sector Pay — [David Hanson in the Chair] (4 Dec 2017)

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...

Public Sector Pay — [David Hanson in the Chair] (4 Dec 2017)

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...

Public Sector Pay — [David Hanson in the Chair] (4 Dec 2017)

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.

Public Sector Pay — [David Hanson in the Chair] (4 Dec 2017)

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?

Business of the House (30 Nov 2017)

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...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Passenger Trends (30 Nov 2017)

Dan Carden: What recent assessment he has made of trends in rail passenger usage.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Passenger Trends (30 Nov 2017)

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?

Petition - Changes to Local Bus Services in Torbay: Guards on Merseyrail Trains (22 Nov 2017)

Dan Carden: In my speech, I congratulated Merseytravel on the ability to secure provision of these trains in the public sector, which means that they will be 30% cheaper than if they were bought through private means and private loans. But the one thing we cannot do is have a publicly run rail network across Merseyside because of the legislation of the UK Government. It is okay for Dutch public railways...

Petition - Changes to Local Bus Services in Torbay: Guards on Merseyrail Trains (22 Nov 2017)

Dan Carden: I am grateful for the opportunity to raise in the Chamber the important issue of the future of safety-critical guards on Merseyrail trains. All of us value the work of the people who keep our country moving, be they guards, drivers, signal workers, track workers, ticket office workers, cleaners or station staff. I represent my home city in this place, and it is a privilege to be able to speak...

Petition - Changes to Local Bus Services in Torbay: Guards on Merseyrail Trains (22 Nov 2017)

Dan Carden: I thank my right hon. Friend for that intervention. I will lay out my arguments, including my comments about that issue, in my speech. I will use this debate to outline why guards are so important for safety, security, service and accessibility, and to highlight the level of public support for retaining guards on trains. I will discuss their safety-critical function and their valued role in...

Petition - Changes to Local Bus Services in Torbay: Guards on Merseyrail Trains (22 Nov 2017)

Dan Carden: Negotiations are of course critical to resolving the dispute, and I absolutely welcome the new trains. They are long overdue and something the unions have campaigned for. They will be publicly owned by the people of the Liverpool city region and are forecast to be 30% cheaper for the taxpayer than using the failed model of rolling stock leasing companies. ROSCOs are like the loan sharks of...

Petition - Changes to Local Bus Services in Torbay: Guards on Merseyrail Trains (22 Nov 2017)

Dan Carden: I find that incredible. It is not good enough for the people of Merseyside to go without guards when companies that profit from the revenue from those people’s tickets provide guards in other countries. Instead of pushing DOO, the Government could make passenger safety and the provision of safety-critical guards non-negotiable, before profits, at the top of contracts for all rail...

Petition - Changes to Local Bus Services in Torbay: Guards on Merseyrail Trains (22 Nov 2017)

Dan Carden: I will not, because I am pushed for time. For the reasons that I have outlined, I believe that the basis of any resolution must be agreement on the principle of keeping the guard on the train. Last week Merseyrail appointed a new managing director, and that might provide an opportunity for fresh thinking. Similar issues have been resolved elsewhere. The RMT has agreed new deals with a number...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Immigration Detention Centres (20 Nov 2017)

Dan Carden: Whether her Department plans to review the effectiveness of its policy on indefinite detention.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Immigration Detention Centres (20 Nov 2017)

Dan Carden: It is completely wrong to say that we do not have indefinite detention. If someone is locked up and not given a timeframe for when they will be released, that is indefinite detention. Will the Minister not take on recommendations from Her Majesty’s inspectorate of prisons, the all-party parliamentary inquiry on detention, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Amnesty...
