Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (27 Nov 2017)

Julia Lopez: I am grateful for the chance to contribute to a debate about the kind of country that we seek to build in the exciting new era before us. Too often, Britain’s decision to leave the EU has been mischaracterised as a backlash against modernity, and the reflex of a nation still mourning an imperial past. Now is the time to counter that miserable misperception with an unashamed vigour and a...

UK Bee Population (14 Nov 2017)

Julia Lopez: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Cheltenham (Alex Chalk) for securing the debate. The health of Britain’s bee population is of great concern to a number of my constituents, including members of Havering Friends of the Earth. I must declare a personal interest in the debate. It is particularly close to the heart of my father, who 10 years ago fulfilled a boyhood dream to become a...

UK Bee Population (14 Nov 2017)

Julia Lopez: Absolutely. I cannot claim to be a bee expert, but I know that my dad often gets very concerned about the winter months, and I agree with what he says. Beekeepers feel that part of the answer when it comes to varroa mite is to have as many people keeping bees as possible, rather than treating bees with varroa-control chemicals and then allowing natural selection to produce varroa-resistant...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Taxi and Private Hire Vehicle Industries (19 Oct 2017)

Julia Lopez: What plans his Department has to update legislation on the taxi and private hire vehicle industries.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Taxi and Private Hire Vehicle Industries (19 Oct 2017)

Julia Lopez: What discussions has the Minister had with the Mayor of London to find a workable way forward on taxi legislation in the capital that balances healthy competition with the properly enforced regulations that safeguard passengers and keep our city moving?

Armed Forces (19 Jul 2017)

Julia Dockerill: Flexibility has been a watchword in this debate. Would my hon. Friend support flexibility in the budgets of Government Department’s engaged abroad? I would like to see aid, Foreign and Commonwealth Office, defence and security budgets interlinked, to allow us to focus on the most pressing priorities in each country where we have a presence, rather than seeing each Department working on...

Taxi Trade — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Julia Dockerill: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Taxi Trade — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Julia Dockerill: I thank the hon. Gentleman. He mentions looking again at taxi legislation. Does he agree that pedicabs, which are something of a problem in central London—they have created a lot of concern about passenger safety and congestion, particularly in the west end—should come within that legislation?

Business of the House (13 Jul 2017)

Julia Dockerill: The Metropolitan police recently revealed that up to 50,000 crimes a year are now being committed by thieves on motorbikes and pedal cycles. That is reflected in correspondence I receive from my constituents across Hornchurch and Upminster. Will the Leader of the House make time for a debate on whether police have all the powers they need to tackle this alarming new crime wave?

Exiting the European Union and Global Trade (6 Jul 2017)

Julia Dockerill: I thank the hon. Member for West Bromwich West (Mr Bailey) for his contribution. I am grateful to you, Madam Deputy Speaker, for calling me to make my maiden speech in this important debate about trade. I am also thankful to my hon. Friends for gathering around me like a protective huddle of penguins; I very much appreciate it. We must be realistic, pragmatic and determined about how we best...

Persecution of Christians: Role of UK Embassies — [David Hanson in the Chair] (4 Jul 2017)

Julia Dockerill: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that clampdowns on religious freedom often go hand in hand with an oppressive approach to free-thinking in general, and in particular to the press? I have worked a lot with the Bangladeshi community, and in Bangladesh there are a lot of problems with sectarianism, which goes hand in hand with a vicious clampdown on bloggers. Has work been done with advocates of a...
