Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (27 Mar 2018)

Alex Norris: Last month, Impactt’s audit of the Qatari supreme committee, which is responsible for the World cup, highlighted significant positive progress in areas relating to workers’ rights. What efforts will the British Government make to support further progress and promote its spreading to neighbouring states?

Public Bill Committee: Secure Tenancies (Victims of Domestic Abuse) Bill [Lords]: Duty to grant old-style secure tenancies: victims of domestic abuse (27 Mar 2018)

Alex Norris: It is a pleasure to serve for the first time under your chairship, Mr Rosindell, and to be part of this important Committee. I am conscious that there are lots of skilled and talented people in the room who are very experienced in the area of domestic abuse, so it is perhaps natural that I rise to speak with a little trepidation, but I care deeply about this issue and I want to make a couple...

Public Bill Committee: Secure Tenancies (Victims of Domestic Abuse) Bill [Lords]: Duty to grant old-style secure tenancies: victims of domestic abuse (27 Mar 2018)

Alex Norris: Like the Minister, I have a very good local authority. I have long admired the housing officers there, who are exceptionally skilled people. When they open that door in the morning, when they open their emails or answer the phone, they never quite know what they are going to get. It could be somebody suffering domestic abuse, as we are talking about today; someone with drug or alcohol abuse...

Public Bill Committee: Secure Tenancies (Victims of Domestic Abuse) Bill [Lords]: Duty to grant old-style secure tenancies: victims of domestic abuse (27 Mar 2018)

Alex Norris: I came this morning more in hope than expectation. I can count how many Opposition Members there are and how many Government Members, which brings a certain likelihood to whether we will get what we hope for out of the sitting. Come what may, I want to know that we have made the case for the person who has made that incredibly difficult decision and weighed up the pros and cons, and removed...

Public Bill Committee: Secure Tenancies (Victims of Domestic Abuse) Bill [Lords]: Duty to review cooperation between England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland (27 Mar 2018)

Alex Norris: Ms Ryan, this is the first time I have served under your chairship and it is a pleasure to do so. In this morning’s sitting we had a long and interesting discussion on amendment 5. It was a shame we could not reach consensus. We ended up having a conversation about whether what the amendment said was already in the Bill and it became an almost semantic conversation about whether “a local...

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (28 Mar 2018)

Alex Norris: Ministers talk a lot about voter fraud, even though there were only two convictions in 2016. Ministers do not talk about the 6 million people who are not on the electoral register. May I have a commitment from Ministers that, when it comes to strengthening our democracy, they will prioritise the many, not the few?

Business of the House (29 Mar 2018)

Alex Norris: The Aspley sewing workshop in my constituency is a fantastic example of how the arts can bring people together and reduce social isolation. Over the past eight weeks, funded by near neighbours, 39 people from different faiths and cultures have designed and made clothes, bags, cushions and toys for themselves and their children. May we have a debate in Government time on the impact that the...

Counter-Daesh Update (29 Mar 2018)

Alex Norris: The Secretary of State mentions the suffering of the Syrian people; does she agree with the constituents who came to see me at my surgery last Friday that that suffering has been compounded by the British Government’s shameful timidity regarding Turkish aggression in northern Syria?

Alex Norris: What data is now being kept regarding outcomes for people who have been through the national referral mechanism, and what does this data tell us about levels of re-trafficking?

Military Action Overseas: Parliamentary Approval (17 Apr 2018)

Alex Norris: In 2011, this House was promised that the Government would “enshrine in law for the future the necessity of consulting Parliament on military action.” That would have completed a painful journey that started before the Iraq campaign. It took the threat of a wildcat Parliament in Church House to drag the Government to this place to set up a vote on that matter. It would have seen...

Military Action Overseas: Parliamentary Approval (17 Apr 2018)

Alex Norris: I will not give way for the minute because I wish to make some progress. Of course, that would be exceptionally difficult, but we were sent here to tackle the exceptionally difficult. In 2013, Parliament debated military action—that has been played out many times over the past few hours—and MPs were given the opportunity to have their say, for better or for worse, to cast their votes, to...

Military Action Overseas: Parliamentary Approval (17 Apr 2018)

Alex Norris: My hon. Friend and I share a real passion for all matters American—I am talking about not just basketball and American football, but the American constitution. He highlights my very point very well.

Military Action Overseas: Parliamentary Approval (17 Apr 2018)

Alex Norris: The hon. Gentleman has not given me the chance to make my case. I am arguing for a formalised, codified role for this place so that we are not in the situation of last week when, for as many tweets as there were about whether we should be acting at all, there were tweets questioning whether Parliament should be recalled. We should not be in this fudge at a time when we are making such...

Military Action Overseas: Parliamentary Approval (17 Apr 2018)

Alex Norris: I am not arguing for that. We could weave into the statute circumstances in which there was a clear and immediate need to act in the national interest, and the right hon. Gentleman will be glad to hear that I am getting to that very point. I want to draw on the work of the former Political and Constitutional Reform Committee. I know that you have a keen eye for detail and strong powers of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Business of the House (19 Apr 2018)

Alex Norris: Every weekend, hundreds of thousands of men, women and children make their weekly pilgrimage to watch their football team. In the top two tiers of English football, they can only do so sitting down. This is unsafe, as it is not universally observed, and it is bad for the atmosphere. It is time to permit safe standing, as they do in Scotland and other parts of Europe. May we have a debate on...
