Housing, Planning and the Green Belt (6 Feb 2018)

Lee Rowley: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker, for the opportunity to contribute to this debate. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Isle of Wight (Mr Seely) on further enhancing his reputation as a doughty and energetic campaigner for his island. I also congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Tewkesbury (Mr Robertson) on securing this debate. I listened with interest to the exchange between my...

Lee Rowley: To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, pursuant to the Answer of 16 January 2018 to Question 121545, on Planning Permission: Appeals, what the Planning Inspectorate appeal reference numbers are for the 7 minerals appeals stated.

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Planning Permission: Quarrying (5 Feb 2018)

Lee Rowley: To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, with reference to Sections 70a and 70b of the Town and County Planning Act 1990 (as amended), what estimate he has made of the number of overlapping and subsequent minerals applications, commonly known as twin track minerals applications, that have been submitted since 2011.

Ethics and Artificial Intelligence (17 Jan 2018)

Lee Rowley: I completely accept the principle that strong regulation is required for data, and it is important that organisations such as the ICO lead that—even if I have some concerns about some of what has come out on the general data protection regulation in recent months. Is it not the responsibility of all of us here, the ICO, Ministers and wider civic society to start discussing privacy more...

Ethics and Artificial Intelligence (17 Jan 2018)

Lee Rowley: I congratulate the hon. Lady on this debate; it is a fascinating area and I am grateful to be able to speak. On her last point, I understand that in parts of the United States where that technology is used, there are instances where the judges go one step further and rely on those decisions as reasons to do things. The decision is made on incorrect information in the first instance, and then...

Ethics and Artificial Intelligence (17 Jan 2018)

Lee Rowley: I will try not to intervene too much, but the point about transparency in the process and the decision making relates to the data that is used as an input. It is often the case in these instances that machine learning is simply about correlations and patterns in a wide scheme of data. If that data is not right in the first instance, subjective and inaccurate decisions are created.

Written Answers — Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government: Planning Permission: Appeals (16 Jan 2018)

Lee Rowley: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, with reference to paragraph 012, Reference ID: 16-012-20140306, of the Government’s Appeals Planning Practice Guidance, what estimate he has made of the number of minerals applications appealed as non-determinations as a result of a breach of the 13-week determination limit since 2011.

NHS Winter Crisis: Rail Franchising (10 Jan 2018)

Lee Rowley: I am grateful for the opportunity to speak in this debate. I have only three minutes, so I will go as quickly as possible. I am a new Member in the House, and regrettably I come to these debates and I hear the same stale and artificial arguments by Opposition Members. That has happened again today: we immediately reach a position where private is bad and public is good. That argument is...

NHS Winter Crisis: Rail Franchising (10 Jan 2018)

Lee Rowley: No, I will not give way to the hon. Gentleman. In the past 20 years, 13 of which Opposition Members stood up to defend and were under a Labour Government, there has been an increase in the number of passengers using the railway, more trains than ever and greater customer satisfaction about many parts of the line. I want to make two points in the time I have left. Given that today is an...

NHS Winter Crisis: Rail Franchising (10 Jan 2018)

Lee Rowley: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. Time after time, I sit in the Chamber and listen to Opposition Members who really do not understand economics and where the money comes from and do not get how we can pay for the railways and all the sweeties and goodies that they seek to give out. If we consider the Midland Mainline franchise in 1996, a couple of years after franchising occurred, there...

Yorkshire Devolution (9 Jan 2018)

Lee Rowley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Pritchard. I congratulate the hon. Member for Barnsley Central (Dan Jarvis) on securing this debate. I feel slightly like an imposter at the party, because I come from the best county in the country—Derbyshire—so I am looking across the border at this issue. I want to make one very brief point. The Sheffield city region...

Written Answers — Department of Health: Anaemia: Children and Older People (9 Jan 2018)

Lee Rowley: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what steps his Department is taking to prevent the increase in iron deficiency anaemia, particularly among children and older people.

Written Answers — Department of Health: Ovarian Cancer (22 Dec 2017)

Lee Rowley: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what the timetable is for a decision on the next round of cancer audits; and whether ovarian cancer will be included within those audits.

Attorney General: Business of the House (21 Dec 2017)

Lee Rowley: Following the recent experience in my constituency where a planning application for exploratory drilling that will lead to fracking has been declared for non-determination in a highly premature manner, may we have a debate in Government time about whether the planning system is working for these kinds of large applications?

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Superfast Broadband (21 Dec 2017)

Lee Rowley: What recent assessment she has made of progress towards the target of 95% superfast broadband coverage.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Superfast Broadband (21 Dec 2017)

Lee Rowley: I am not sure how to follow that, Mr Speaker. A number of villages in my constituency, including Spinkhill, Renishaw and those bordering the Peak District national park, are suffering from similar issues to those that have just been raised. Will the Minister outline all the work the Government are doing to try to improve that?

Written Answers — Department of Health: Cancer (13 Dec 2017)

Lee Rowley: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, whether there are plans to extend the cancer dashboard to include tumour-specific data for (a) ovarian and (b) other less common cancers.

Brexit Deal: Referendum — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (11 Dec 2017)

Lee Rowley: The hon. Lady makes a powerful point, even though I do not agree with it, and powerfully expands her position on a second referendum. May I ask her how many referendums she proposes to accept in this discussion? Will we be going to 20, 40 or 135, until we get the right answer?

Brexit Deal: Referendum — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (11 Dec 2017)

Lee Rowley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir David. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to contribute to the debate. We have a veritable smorgasbord of e-petitions before us, so all of us can probably choose at least one of them to support and push forward. I have been listening to the debate since it started and I have to say that I find Brexit debates, both in this place and...

Brexit Deal: Referendum — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (11 Dec 2017)

Lee Rowley: I absolutely hope that that would be the case. It is utterly important that we ensure that there is a wide debate about the issues, but ultimately we start from the principle that a large number of people—the largest number of people ever—have made a decision and we should seek to honour that.
