Surgical Mesh: Cancer Treatment (19 Apr 2018)

Sarah Jones: I should like to thank everyone who has spoken so eloquently and movingly today. I cannot name everyone in the time remaining, but I often stand in awe of the Members of this House, and no more so than today. We have had quite a harrowing week in this place, and it has sometimes been quite dark and difficult. There has been a lot of shouting. However, we have closed the week by talking about...

Surgical Mesh: Cancer Treatment (19 Apr 2018)

Sarah Jones: I beg to move, That this House pays tribute to the work of Baroness Tessa Jowell in her campaign to help people with brain tumours to live better lives for longer; recognises the Government’s increased funding for research; and calls on the Government to increase the sharing of health data and promote greater use of adaptive clinical trials. May I start by thanking you, Mr Speaker,...

Surgical Mesh: Cancer Treatment (19 Apr 2018)

Sarah Jones: I thank my hon. Friend for those lovely words and for the commitment to all work together, as, of course, we must. Before I draw my speech to a close, I want to mention one more person by name. Jack Lloyd is 10 and lives in New Addington, in my constituency of Croydon Central. Jack has a brain tumour that is inoperable. His tumour was initially treated successfully but, sadly, another...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: CHOGM: Sustainable Development Goals (18 Apr 2018)

Sarah Jones: What steps the Government are taking to ensure that the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting promotes the sustainable development goals.

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: CHOGM: Sustainable Development Goals (18 Apr 2018)

Sarah Jones: Goal 16 of the sustainable development goals includes a commitment to provide legal identity for all by 2030. Is the Secretary of State ashamed that her Government destroyed thousands of landing cards of those arriving from Commonwealth nations and are now trying to throw those people out?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Children’s Services: Funding (17 Apr 2018)

Sarah Jones: Can the Minister explain why, when we face a national epidemic of knife crime and serious youth violence affecting more and more children in this country, the Treasury failed to provide one penny of extra resource for the Government’s new serious violence strategy, which will now be funded by £40 million of cuts to an already overstretched Home Office?

Opposition Day: Police Funding (28 Mar 2018)

Sarah Jones: During the election campaign I met a 20-year-old young man called Kelva Smith. He was in a front garden with a group of friends, and they had a chat with me as I was canvassing. We talked about crime, the lack of youth services, funding cuts and all the issues that young people are facing. If I am honest, Kelva and his friends were pretty pessimistic about my ability to do anything about any...

Opposition Day: Police Funding (28 Mar 2018)

Sarah Jones: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Health and Social Care: Major Trauma Centres: Youth Intervention Workers (20 Mar 2018)

Sarah Jones: If he will make an assessment of the potential merits of employing youth intervention workers at major trauma centres.

Health and Social Care: Major Trauma Centres: Youth Intervention Workers (20 Mar 2018)

Sarah Jones: Knife crime continues to soar, and Members from across this House believe that we need a new approach. Having youth workers in hospital A&Es is proven to work, and, as the Minister says, Redthread is in some of our hospitals around the country. It would cost as little as £6 million a year to put youth workers into all our major trauma centres, so will she find the funding?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Knives (19 Mar 2018)

Sarah Jones: What discussions she has had with the Home Secretary on reducing the number of children carrying knives at school.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Knives (19 Mar 2018)

Sarah Jones: Knife-carrying in schools is up by 42% across the UK, yet in my constituency, and I expect across the country, at least three quarters of headteachers have had to cut staff, special needs provision and support such as mentoring, which are all crucial in preventing crime. Now that this epidemic has infiltrated our schools, will the Minister admit that school cuts are threatening our...

Salisbury Incident: Further Update (14 Mar 2018)

Sarah Jones: I welcome the Prime Minister’s statement. Given the inevitable focus over recent years on ISIS and the terrorism we have seen at home, is the Prime Minister content that across Government, the Home Office, the security services and other agencies we have enough specific Russian expertise as well as enough resource, or do we need to increase that expertise given this event and many...

Fire Safety and Cladding — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (6 Mar 2018)

Sarah Jones: I congratulate my hon. Friend and neighbour the Member for Croydon North (Mr Reed) on his speech and on securing the debate. I welcome the contributions that have been made so far. Many thousands of residents face huge legal fees and potentially thousands of pounds of costs to remove ACM cladding from their buildings. Freeholders, developers and insurers will not take responsibility, nor...

UK Basketball — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (20 Feb 2018)

Sarah Jones: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Leeds North West (Alex Sobel) for securing this important debate. As so often happens, my right hon. Friend the Member for Tottenham (Mr Lammy) has said what I wanted to say better than I can, so I will be brief. We have already heard how basketball reaches further into communities than many other sports in this country, how it reaches children from...

UK Basketball — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (20 Feb 2018)

Sarah Jones: Absolutely. I have met many young people who have come out of prison, who have carried knives or who have been involved in knife crime or selling drugs. Many of them have responded well to sports, including through organisations such as Gloves Not Gunz. There are many different sporting activities that we can encourage people to get involved with, but basketball is a key one. After the...

Women’S Suffrage Centenary (6 Feb 2018)

Sarah Jones: I am proud to be Croydon’s first female MP and I have been learning this week about the suffragette Dorinda Neligan, who, as well as being arrested outside this place, was the first headteacher of an all-girls school in Croydon, despite complaints about strong-minded women encouraging girls to be dissatisfied with life at home. I am proud to be surrounded by many strong-minded women...

Presidents Club Charity Dinner (24 Jan 2018)

Sarah Jones: The Minister talks about the importance of talking to young people. I am sure that all Members here spend time talking to young people, and I have been shocked, in my six months of being an MP, at the young girls who have an expectation that it is normal to sleep with their boyfriend’s friends, carry their boyfriend’s knives and behave in a certain way; and language is so...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (24 Jan 2018)

Sarah Jones: This morning, thousands of people across the country heard my friend and former boss, Baroness Tessa Jowell, talk for the first time since she was diagnosed with a high-grade brain tumour. As ever, it was a joy to hear her utter relentless positivity and complete commitment to changing the world. In a speech in the other place tomorrow, she will call for improved cancer diagnosis and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (23 Jan 2018)

Sarah Jones: One of my constituents has a young son who is serving a very long prison sentence. He often spends 23 out of 24 hours locked up in his cell. How does the Minister think that is affecting his mental health and his chances of rehabilitation on release?
