Summer Adjournment (22 Jul 2020)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: I am pleased to follow Members’ impassioned speeches about their communities and to hear a bit more about Rother Valley just now. I was reading today’s Daily Telegraph, which is not something that I do regularly, but it is good to know what the enemy think. The front page reported that the American Government and Pompeo believe that the Chinese are responsible for thousands of deaths in...

Parliamentary Constituencies Bill: New Clause 1 - Electorate per constituency (14 Jul 2020)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: When I went to the Table Office a few weeks ago to pick up this Bill I picked up the wrong one, and I was reading it and thinking, “This is a particularly good Bill and it seems very reasonable and sensible,” and then I realised it was actually a private Member’s Bill from a number of Conservative Members. So better suggestions have been laid here in Parliament, and it is such a shame...

Parliamentary Constituencies Bill: New Clause 1 - Electorate per constituency (14 Jul 2020)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: No, I am afraid that time is very tight. The predecessor Committee to mine suggested 10%, with a 15% allowance in exceptional circumstance. That was agreed across the parties in 2015; this is a far more modest proposal. Of course the Boundary Commission should aim to be dead on—no one is saying otherwise—but where that is impossible, we should allow it flexibility. To use a judicial...

Parliamentary Constituencies Bill: New Clause 1 - Electorate per constituency (14 Jul 2020)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Parliamentary Constituencies Bill: New Clause 1 - Electorate per constituency (14 Jul 2020)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: I am a fan of the Kingdom of Sussex and I still sing “Sussex by the Sea” on our national day, but is that not an argument for keeping within county boundaries or historic national boundaries? We therefore need a higher variance on the number; otherwise, the Cornish will be saved this time, but they will not be saved next time.

Parliamentary Constituencies Bill: New Clause 1 - Electorate per constituency (14 Jul 2020)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: We have heard from the other side a suggestion that we should use polling districts as the building blocks, not wards, but is there not a problem with deviating from wards? Wards are agreed by an independent commission, whereas polling districts are decided based on the location of the local church hall for use as the polling station. Surely we need independent commissions that create the...

Points of Order (14 Jul 2020)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: Further to that point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. In ministerial correspondence, the response repeatedly comes back from civil servants and not the Minister themselves, which is a trend that I have noticed more often recently. If I have written to a Minister, I find it uncourteous for the Minister not to respond. I am worried about going into a recess and receiving more civil servants’...

Education Settings: Autumn Opening (2 Jul 2020)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: I am glad that the Secretary of State has bothered to start engaging with frontline staff via their representatives in the unions. But Britain will face a huge economic downturn, and many parents may have lost their jobs or have reduced salaries. Will the Secretary of State follow the leadership of Brighton & Hove City Council, which has issued guidance on school uniforms and other costs so...

Business of the House (2 Jul 2020)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: The Environment Bill was delayed because we had an election and we need to restart it again. It has now been delayed because of covid, and has been put back until September or perhaps even later. I am sure that we would all agree that the world has changed in those six months, particularly around covid and the relation to air quality where we now know that a 1 microgram increase in air...

Transport: Active Travel (2 Jul 2020)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: What support the Government are providing to local authorities to promote active travel.

Transport: Active Travel (2 Jul 2020)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: I thank the Department for the support it has given Brighton and Hove Council to move forward on some of its street schemes, but the developing lungs of children are the most vulnerable, so air quality around schools is important as is, of course, the fitness that we want to encourage in children. As we have heard, London has already started taking action on school street schemes, so will the...

Covid-19 Update (23 Jun 2020)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: Thank you, Prime Minister. Sorry, thank you, Mr Speaker —it would perhaps be much better if you were Prime Minister. Let me thank the Prime Minister for a welcome statement. We have a plethora of small businesses in Brighton. I have just spoken to our lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender businesses, along with Gscene, our LGBT magazine, and they, and, in particular, our bars and clubs,...

Environmental Protection (15 Jun 2020)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: I appreciate the mentions of the Environment Bill; will the Minister ensure that we get back into Committee, because we do not yet have a date for sitting?

Environmental Protection (15 Jun 2020)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: The Opposition will not oppose the regulation today, but we would like to place on record our disappointment at a number of missed opportunities. There are two elements to the statutory instrument—the plastics and the single use. This regulation deals only with removing the plastics and does not attempt to deal with or solve the problem of our single- use economy that we need to tackle. It...

Environmental Protection (15 Jun 2020)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: I totally agree, and we both will have been on beach clean-ups and seen the awful amount of rubbish that is either left there or has washed up. With the work of nature documentaries such as “The Blue Planet”, and environmental organisations such as Friends of the Earth, Keep Britain Tidy, Surfers Against Sewage and others, the public mood has shifted dramatically on plastics. I remember...

Environmental Protection (15 Jun 2020)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: Proper cutlery! I hear lots of support. To highlight the problem of single use, in 2018, McDonald’s UK faced a huge public backlash after the images of their distinctive striped plastic straws on picturesque beaches around the world, and it made a move to paper straws—laudable, fantastic, we would all say. But today it uses 1.8 million paper straws a day and that is 675 million a year....

Environmental Protection (15 Jun 2020)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: It is. Actually, I was on a phone call with the hon. Member for Rugby (Mark Pawsey) earlier today, and many of the producers were saying they welcomed and wanted to move towards that sort of scheme, which I was very pleased to hear. As I have said, we are creating and destroying at alarming rates, but we must design a more circular economy. Where are the Government on the right to repair?...

Public Order (15 Jun 2020)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: I congratulate the Home Secretary on not only the tone but actually the content of much of what she has said. I hope that in protecting war memorials, this will be not just about war memorials, but about all memorials that are culturally sensitive and significant, and that this focuses on community payback, not just putting people in prisons. In Brighton, we had 10,000 to 20,000 people march...

Justice: Topical Questions (9 Jun 2020)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: If he will make a statement on his departmental responsibilities.

Justice: Topical Questions (9 Jun 2020)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: I join in the remarks expressed about the Black Lives Matter protests, and the shadow Secretary of State wrote a fantastic report on this and the justice system, which I thoroughly recommend. Will the Secretary of State ensure, in suspending all eviction proceedings during this crisis and fulfilling his party’s manifesto pledge to scrap no-fault evictions, that no tenant is evicted...
