Insecure Work and the Gig Economy (20 Jun 2018)

Alex Norris: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Barnsley East (Stephanie Peacock) on securing the debate and on the powerful case that she made. Like me, she came to this place as a union activist and union member of staff. I refer colleagues to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. Let us be clear about this: insecure work, especially that which is low paid, is a disease...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Childcare Settings: Financial Viability (25 Jun 2018)

Alex Norris: Childcare is a critical enabler to allow parents to access further education. Nottingham College, in a move reflective of the exceptionally difficult landscape facing further education, has chosen to shut its nursery in my constituency. That is wrong, and I am campaigning with local residents and councillors to keep it open. Does the Minister agree that access to childcare is an important...

Football: Safe Standing — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (25 Jun 2018)

Alex Norris: I will start with a fact: standing happens at every football match, whether that is legal standing up the pyramid to league one or the blind eye turned to it in the premier league and the championship. Every match-going fan knows that that away from home they will stand whether they want to or not, and they know the areas of their own ground where stewards will let it go. The choice before us...

Football: Safe Standing — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (25 Jun 2018)

Alex Norris: I appreciate that intervention and I could not agree more. Now we need the Government to catch up, because they are out of step with public opinion. Two weeks ago the Minister, in response to multiple written questions I had tabled, said: “An announcement will be made shortly.” I hope we hear today when that announcement might be. The crucial thing, from my own experience, is that...

Football: Safe Standing — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (25 Jun 2018)

Alex Norris: My hon. Friend gives me support from a sedentary position. I am very grateful for it. I have been going for 30 years and I have been a season ticket holder for the last 20. Not long ago, I moved from an area where there was a weekly pitched battle between fans and stewards about standing up, because it stopped being fun. My instinct is not to break rules—funnily enough, I suspect that is...

Persistent Rough Sleeping in Nottingham (2 Jul 2018)

Alex Norris: I congratulate my hon. Friend on the powerful case that she is making on behalf of our city. I served on the council in our city at a time when we virtually eradicated rough sleeping, and now we are back to where we are today. Does my hon. Friend agree that this situation has been caused by a toxic combination of under-employment, poor housing supply, cuts to drug and alcohol services,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (4 Jul 2018)

Alex Norris: The nursery at Basford Hall is well used and well rated and helps parents access further education. Despite that, Nottingham College is planning to close it. Our campaign to stop that is backed by 1,800 local residents and our local councillors. Does the Prime Minister agree with them that we must remove all barriers to accessing further education, and will she support our call for the...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Taylor Review of Modern Working Practices (17 Jul 2018)

Alex Norris: Insecure work weakens our economy. Last week the Office for National Statistics reported falls in manufacturing and construction output. The past few weeks have been dominated by Ministers worrying about their jobs. When will the Government have a functioning industrial strategy that worries about my constituents’ jobs?

Housing, Communities and Local Government: New Homes (23 Jul 2018)

Alex Norris: The building of new homes is being choked off in Nottingham by the refusal of the Department to remove the cap on the housing revenue account. I put this to Ministers on 12 March, and was told that if Nottingham stepped up and made a strong case, it would be looked upon favourably. Such a case has been made, but it has not been looked upon favourably. Why not?
