Unpaid Trial Work Periods (Prohibition) Bill (16 Mar 2018)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: My brother took part in one of these trials for a telephone sales company. He worked for two days unpaid while having to pay for transport up and down. He is a physics graduate—very intelligent—and knows that it is illegal, but he has no confidence that if he reports the matter, it will go anywhere. Is not part of the key to enable easier reporting to HMRC and to require companies...

Unpaid Trial Work Periods (Prohibition) Bill (16 Mar 2018)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: Does the hon. Gentleman recognise Unite community section, which has low rates specifically to protect those people who are out of work? There are options in the union sector to protect people who are on low wages or no wage.

Refugees (Family Reunion) (No.2) Bill (16 Mar 2018)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: My hon. Friend points out the case in Lewisham. Does she acknowledge that that is the case with Labour-led councils across the country, which are offering to put more people up, but the Government are not using those places? The Government need to take action immediately to use those places.

International Development Committee: Burma Visas (28 Feb 2018)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: I am, of course, disappointed by this, as one of the Committee members refused a visa. I am also deeply disappointed as a Member of Parliament who represents a city that not only gave Aung San Suu Kyi the freedom of our city but allowed her to curate the Brighton festival a number of years ago. This is a huge personal disappointment for me. Aung San Suu Kyi seems more and more now to be part...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Local Authority Funding (27 Feb 2018)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: What recent discussions he has had with the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government on trends in the level of funding for local authorities since 2010.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Local Authority Funding (27 Feb 2018)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: My own council of Brighton and Hove has had to make £52 million-worth of cuts in three years, despite superb Labour leadership in the city. With one of the Minister’s own Tory councils going bust, will the Chancellor finally commit to properly funding local government in tomorrow’s local government finance settlement?

Syria: De-Escalation Zones (26 Feb 2018)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: I agree entirely with the Foreign Secretary that we must aim for a political solution. Do today’s revelations in the media that we have spent more on our air campaign in the region than we have on humanitarian aid in both Syria and Iraq during the same period show that we should put our money where our mouth is, and prioritise aid, sanctions and peace negotiations, not a costly air...

Overseas Electors Bill (23 Feb 2018)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: Further to that point, does my hon. Friend not think it rather strange that we still do not give the vote to EU citizens who have might have lived here for many, many years? The Conservative party seems to have no inclination to want to help people who live here, pay taxes here and contribute to this country to be able to vote. They should be our first priority, rather than trying to reach...

Overseas Electors Bill (23 Feb 2018)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: Is it not bizarre when, in other countries, the right to vote in elections is extended to generation after generation, and a large proportion of the electorate are outside the country where the election is taking place? When I was in Buenos Aires the other year, the campaign that was taking place on the streets concerned not an Argentinian but an Italian election. There were posters in the...

Backbench Business: Refugee Children: Family Reunion in the UK — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (22 Feb 2018)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: I have a case in my constituency of two refugee brothers who are trying to get their other brother to the UK from a refugee camp in Turkey. They are having to rely on charity, so they are literally shaking buckets to raise enough money to get solicitors. Does my hon. Friend agree that the situation we face in Britain, in which those children have to rely on charity, is disgraceful, and that...

International Trade: Topical Questions (22 Feb 2018)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: With no prosecutions leading to convictions since 2011, with no register of arms brokers—as the USA, Canada, Germany and France have—and with the Government selling weapons and spy equipment to eight human rights abusers, how can the Government continue to claim that we have the strongest arms export regime in the world, or are they just not implementing the rules?

Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [Lords] (20 Feb 2018)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: I agree with many of the comments we have heard today from both sides of the House, which I would summarise as—a necessary start but not good enough, not far enough, not strong enough. One area I am interested in is arms control, which the Bill misses an opportunity to address. The arms export control system we use in the UK goes hand in hand with the sanctions system we use to stop...

Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [Lords] (20 Feb 2018)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: Many of our tax havens, and some of our Crown dependencies, were put on the EU watch list. They had to demonstrate that they were making improvements. I understand that one of the ways in which they could get on to the watch list was for the UK Government to underwrite that progress by indicating that they would support it, which would enable them to avoid being put on the blacklist. Is it...

Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [Lords] (20 Feb 2018)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: Does my hon. Friend agree that if we tackled tax evasion and avoidance, we would not see such modest levels of overseas development? Countries around the world—in Africa and Asia—would be able to finance their own basic services. Those places do have the money, but companies are stealing it via evasion and avoidance.

Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [Lords] (20 Feb 2018)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: Does my hon. Friend share my concern that, when one of my constituents reported a fraudulent entry in the Companies House register, the response from Companies House was that it does not do the enforcement, but is just the registry? This fraud is a mockery of the whole registry system.

Aid Sector: Safeguarding (20 Feb 2018)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: Following the International Development Committee’s hearing this morning, a number of areas for immediate action were raised. One was about charities’ ability to do a Disclosure and Barring Service check—formerly a Criminal Records Bureau check—for all their workers. Will the Secretary of State take immediate action to ensure that they can do that by including them as...

Business of the House (8 Feb 2018)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: Activists in Honduras have been targeted with a wave of surveillance, intimidation and violence. Last year, as we found out last week, the UK—for the first time ever—approved the sales of interception equipment to the Honduran Government. Will the Leader of the House make time for a statement from the Secretary of State in this House about how the consolidated criteria on arms...

Same-Sex Marriage in Bermuda (8 Feb 2018)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: How do we expect to be leaders of the world on this issue, and how do we expect to raise this issue seriously in the Commonwealth as the Minister suggests, if they can all turn around and say, “Well, in the territories you sanction it. In Northern Ireland you sanction it.” We are making our country a laughing stock in the international human rights field. Will we be able to think...

Backbench Business: Erasmus Plus Programme: Youth and Sport — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (30 Jan 2018)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: I beg to move, That this House has considered youth activities and sport within the Erasmus Plus programme. I applied for the debate, as chair of the all-party parliamentary group on youth affairs and former vice-president of the European youth forum, for two main reasons. The first is the big issue hanging over us in almost every decision we make in this place at the moment: Brexit. How will...

Backbench Business: Erasmus Plus Programme: Youth and Sport — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (30 Jan 2018)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: Totally. I will talk later about how the youth and sport programmes are far more diverse than some of the university parts of the Erasmus Plus programme. The continued participation of black, Asian and minority ethnic communities and other harder-to-reach or economically-deprived communities in parts of those programmes is really important. We need to think about not just our continued...
