Sarah Jones: What recent assessment he has made of trends in the level of passenger rail usage.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Passenger Rail Usage (18 Jan 2018)

Sarah Jones: Journeys on the Thameslink, Southern and Great Northern franchise fell for the first time last year as commuters shunned its shoddy services. The management contract given by DFT means the state has to shoulder a £90 million loss as a result, and Office of Rail and Road figures show that passenger numbers are starting to fall across the country. Is the franchise model sustainable if that...

NHS Winter Crisis: Rail Franchising (10 Jan 2018)

Sarah Jones: In his speech, the Secretary of State said: “Let us concentrate on the things that will make the difference for passengers”. Today’s National Audit Office report says, among many other damning things, that “it is not clear whether the Department considered the…effects of its approach on passenger services.” There have been warm words, but no action. The...

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Topical Questions (10 Jan 2018)

Sarah Jones: Thank you, Mr Speaker. On new year’s eve, another four young people lost their lives to knife crime in London. We have failed to tackle this epidemic because we have failed to recognise that the solutions span health, education, poverty and aspiration. What can the Minister do in his role to get Departments working together to find a long-term solution?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Human Rights (9 Jan 2018)

Sarah Jones: What steps he is taking to promote human rights in discussions with his counterparts in other countries.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Human Rights (9 Jan 2018)

Sarah Jones: We saw again this weekend the perils of the sea crossing from Libya to Europe. Migrants in Libya are also in danger. Amnesty says that 20,000 people are being held in detention centres, subject to torture, forced labour, extortion and unlawful killings. What are the Government doing to put pressure on the European and Libyan authorities to allow NGO rescue ships access to Libyan waters and...

Royal Assent: Business of the House (7 Dec 2017)

Sarah Jones: On 9 November last year, seven people lost their lives and many more were injured in the Croydon tram crash, which was the largest crash of its kind in 50 years. Today, the Rail Accident Investigation Branch is publishing its findings on the causes of the accident. I have had early sight of them, and it is clear that they will apply across all the tram networks of the UK. For the sake of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (29 Nov 2017)

Sarah Jones: Today, we see shocking new figures that child knife deaths are nearing a 40-year high. The Prime Minister promised action five months ago, but she has failed to deliver. There was nothing in the Budget for policing and nothing meaningful to tackle the causes as well as the crime. It is clear that we need intervention now and not just from the Home Office. Funding youth workers in major trauma...

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

Sarah Jones: The big story from last week’s Budget was clear: there is little room for manoeuvre on the economy unless we improve our productivity. We need to spend only five minutes in the company of anyone from the Institute for Fiscal Studies to see that our downgraded productivity forecasts spell real problems for the UK, particularly as we approach the full force of the Government’s...

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Topical Questions (22 Nov 2017)

Sarah Jones: The gender pay gap is growing in a quarter of Government bodies. How is this setting the rest of the country an example?

Duties of Customs (20 Nov 2017)

Sarah Jones: I am grateful for the opportunity to make a very brief contribution to this debate. I support the powerful case that my hon. Friend the Member for Bootle (Peter Dowd) made for preventing Parliament from being sidelined on this important issue, and welcome the very significant contribution by my hon. Friend the Member for Edinburgh South (Ian Murray). The provision for customs duties is a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (20 Nov 2017)

Sarah Jones: I welcome the new Minister, the Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department, the hon. Member for Louth and Horncastle (Victoria Atkins), to her role, which covers knife crime and serious youth violence. I warmly invite her to come to the all-party group on knife crime, which I chair.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (6 Nov 2017)

Sarah Jones: Two years ago, the Government promised legal action on the exorbitant costs of school uniforms. When will the Secretary of State keep that promise?

Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill (3 Nov 2017)

Sarah Jones: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Croydon North (Mr Reed) on introducing the Bill, which is important for the country and for Croydon. Seni died in Bethlem Royal Hospital, which is on the border of my constituency, and my love and support go to his family and friends for what he suffered. A constituent came to me this week who had had a bipolar episode, ended up in a prison cell,...

Sarah Jones: What recent estimate he has made of the number of children in temporary accommodation.

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Children in Temporary Accommodation (30 Oct 2017)

Sarah Jones: The number of families in temporary accommodation in Croydon has doubled in seven years. Right now, two thirds of families in Croydon in local authority housing are in debt and at risk of eviction directly because of universal credit. How will the Minister stop more families in Croydon on universal credit becoming homeless and spending the winter months in temporary accommodation?

Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Sarah Jones: My cautionary tale from Croydon is similar to that of my hon. Friend the Member for Bermondsey and Old Southwark (Neil Coyle). People in my constituency were among the first to experience the full service roll-out of UC back in 2015, and the size of Croydon means that our borough has the highest case load in the country. In Croydon, we have seen UC’s problems play out slowly over time,...

Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Sarah Jones: The hon. Gentleman talks of the transformational impact of universal credit, so will he please comment on the transformation for my constituents? In Croydon, two thirds of families in local authority housing are now in rent arrears and face eviction, compared with less than a third before universal credit was introduced.

Autism Diagnosis — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (13 Sep 2017)

Sarah Jones: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Enfield, Southgate (Bambos Charalambous) on his speech and on calling this important debate. The things that he and others said about diagnosis and data, and the personal stories we have heard, are powerful and make a very good case. When I go knocking on doors in Croydon, it is unusual not to meet somebody who has a child with...
