Christine Jardine: To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, what steps he is taking to ensure the introduction of (a) proposals on mandatory caller ID and (b) more effective call-blocking technology.

Cannabis-Based Medicines (19 Jun 2018)

Christine Jardine: I welcome the Home Secretary’s statement. It will be particularly welcomed by my constituents the Gray family, as Murray Gray suffers from a similar condition to Alfie Dingley and Billy Caldwell. I also welcome the speed with which the Home Secretary will act, but I urge him not to be thrown off track or to allow anything to affect the rescheduling of cannabis, such as reactionary fear...

NHS Long-Term Plan: Sewel Convention (18 Jun 2018)

Christine Jardine: Given the time, I will be brief, which is not a phrase that my colleagues hear often. Tonight’s debate has been important for devolution, for the future of Scottish governance and for the future governance of us all. But it has also been profoundly disappointing because, rather than make progress, we have simply demonstrated the problems that got us here in the first...

NHS Long-Term Plan: Sewel Convention (18 Jun 2018)

Christine Jardine: Does my right hon. Friend share my frustration at the impasse that the two parties have reached—the two parties that initially, and for a considerable period, did not back devolution but now claim to defend it? Both the SNP and the Tories failed to engage in the first stage of the debate.

Medicinal Cannabis (18 Jun 2018)

Christine Jardine: Given that the Minister has said that clinicians must take the lead on this, when will he reschedule cannabis to allow clinicians to use their professional judgment in the provision of medicinal cannabis to children such as my constituent, Murray Gray, who suffers from a very similar condition to Alfie Dingley? Will he meet me to discuss that?

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (18 Jun 2018)

Christine Jardine: My constituent, Shirley Todd, a wheelchair user, carried out a survey of part of the city and discovered that 72% of businesses were inaccessible to wheelchair users. She has now launched a national campaign and petition. Will the Minister agree to consider plans to make local authorities responsible for proactively enforcing the provisions in the Equality Act 2010?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Sewel Convention (14 Jun 2018)

Christine Jardine: I thank the Secretary of State for providing me with prior sight of his statement. I also welcome the clarification that this is not a constitutional crisis, regardless of how much some Members might like to portray it as such. However, does he accept that the events of this week and the lack of debate on devolution have simply underlined the need for a proper, enduring dispute resolution...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Boilers: Government Assistance (14 Jun 2018)

Christine Jardine: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, with reference to the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport's press release, New measures to beat plague of nuisance calls, published on 30 May 2018, whether his Department plans to accept liability for cold calling used to promote the Government's boiler scrappage scheme.

Exiting the European Union: UK Citizens’ Rights (14 Jun 2018)

Christine Jardine: I appreciate the Minister’s comments about UK citizens living abroad, but does he agree that we still need clarity for EU citizens living here? The David family in my constituency have lived and worked here for 20 years. Both their children were born here, but although one of them is entitled to a UK passport, the other is not. They have now had five different pieces of conflicting...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: RBS Bank Closures (6 Jun 2018)

Christine Jardine: With great swathes of Scotland losing bank branches while they are still awaiting decent broadband from the Scottish Government, what steps are the UK Government taking to support local authorities in the next round of the broadband roll-out, so that people losing local banking services can at least have good broadband?

Offences Against the Person Act 1861 (5 Jun 2018)

Christine Jardine: I, too, thank the hon. Member for Walthamstow (Stella Creasy) and everyone who supported her in securing this debate. It is of vital importance, not in a party political sense—or any political sense—but in a human rights sense. Two issues are involved here. The first is that it is simply appalling in 2018 that abortion is still treated as a criminal issue, rather than a medical...

Offences Against the Person Act 1861 (5 Jun 2018)

Christine Jardine: I hope that the right hon. Gentleman will not mind, but because of the time limitations, I am not going to give way. We are not trying to usurp the rights of that Parliament; we are simply trying to establish the rights of women throughout the UK, to put those rights on an equal footing, and to give every woman the choice. If we repealed sections 58 and 59, the Parliament in Northern Ireland...

Proposed Media Mergers (5 Jun 2018)

Christine Jardine: Liberal Democrats have been consistent in expressing our concern about the Sky-Fox deal should it have gone ahead in its entirety. I therefore welcome the Secretary of State’s assurances that Sky News will be protected and sold off. Will he also reassure us that that there will be similar undertakings about the future of Sky News in the event that Comcast is the buyer?

Transport Secretary: East Coast Franchise (23 May 2018)

Christine Jardine: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that one of the flaws in the east coast franchise, and one of the reasons it failed, is that it was so badly set up in the first place, with the backloading of payments? Does he agree that perhaps we should take this opportunity, as we go into a different arrangement, to look at how we set up franchises to make sure we do not doom them to failure?

Transport Emissions: Urban Areas: Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe (22 May 2018)

Christine Jardine: Taking on board the lessons of the mistakes made in this case, will the Government review how they deal with such situations in the future to ensure that no other British citizen has to go through the misery that Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe and her family are experiencing at the moment?
