Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [Lords] (20 Feb 2018)

Alex Norris: As I have been sitting here listening to the debate, I have had a growing sense of déjà vu with regard to a similar sedentary vigil just before the recess when we debated the Nuclear Safeguards Bill. That is an important piece of legislation that we need as we leave the EU and seek to quickly and safely reproduce the benefits of our EU membership. It is in the same vein that we consider...

East Midlands Ambulance Service (21 Feb 2018)

Alex Norris: I thank my hon. Friend for the very strong case that she is making; she is an outstanding campaigner for our region. Nottingham city MPs are very concerned about this issue; I am the only one present because my two colleagues are on other parliamentary business. We would like to see real evidence of the provider coming together with unions, clinicians and service users to try to iron out some...

Public Bill Committee: Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [Lords]: Aircraft sanctions (27 Feb 2018)

Alex Norris: I rise to speak in support of the amendments, not least so that I do not freeze to my chair, Mr McCabe. On Second Reading, the rough theme of the discussion was that we wanted a sanctions regime in this country that punished the individuals for their behaviour but did not as a result punish their countrymen and women or people in their care, and what is proposed would seem to fit perfectly...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Infrastructure: Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire (1 Mar 2018)

Alex Norris: Between 2016 and 2021 the east midlands will receive just 3.2% of all transport investment, and that is exacerbated by the cancellation of the electrification of the Midland main line. That electrification is wanted by business and communities, and it is better value, better for the environment, and has a brilliant business case. Why are Ministers in the Department for Transport the only ones...

Public Bill Committee: Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [Lords]: Money laundering and terrorist financing etc (1 Mar 2018)

National Planning Policy Framework (5 Mar 2018)

Alex Norris: I bring excellent news for the Secretary of State from the city of Nottingham. We are ready to build the houses we need to, we just need him to remove the cap on Nottingham City Council’s ability to borrow in order to do so. When will the cap be removed?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Private Sector Probation Companies (6 Mar 2018)

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Private Sector Probation Companies (6 Mar 2018)

Alex Norris: Her Majesty’s inspectorate of probation recently warned that private sector probation companies’ focus on contract compliance rather the true quality of supervision was inevitably having an impact on culture and was undermining the established values of probation professionals. Does the Minister agree that it is time to put proper probation ahead of private profit?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (6 Mar 2018)

Alex Norris: In December, the previous Prisons Minister wrote to me saying that the spate of deaths at HMP Nottingham was a random occurrence, blaming a phenomenon called “suicide cluster”. In January, an inspection of the prison deemed it fundamentally unsafe. Last month there was another death, reported to be a suicide. Will Ministers now accept that there is nothing random going on at this jail and...

Public Bill Committee: Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [Lords]: Public registers of beneficial ownership of companies in the British overseas territories (6 Mar 2018)

Alex Norris: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Ochil and South Perthshire. My hon. Friend the Member for Bishop Auckland probably shares quite a few of these views. She made a comprehensive and weighty case; I just want to build on a couple of elements of it. We have recognised on Second Reading and during this discussion that Britain and the British Parliament have a really good record in...

Public Bill Committee: Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [Lords]: Public registers of beneficial ownership of companies in the British overseas territories (6 Mar 2018)

Alex Norris: I thank my hon. Friend for that useful intervention. I absolutely agree. We should not see the Paradise papers and the Panama papers as the past, and assume that we will not see anything about this issue again. We are likely to see such things periodically on different programmes and in different newspapers. Every time that happens, people will ask, “What did you do about it? When you heard...

Public Bill Committee: Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [Lords]: Public register of beneficial ownership of UK property by companies and other legal entities registered outside the UK (6 Mar 2018)

Public Bill Committee: Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [Lords]: Public register of beneficial ownership of UK property by companies and other legal entities registered outside the UK (6 Mar 2018)

Alex Norris: You are very kind, Dame Cheryl. I am not a very good bobber—I find myself inadvertently bobbing in the wrong place or staying in my seat. My wife is currently doing the 100 squat challenge, and I wonder whether an afternoon of questions on a particularly good statement is a good way to make a down-payment on that. That is not the point I rise to make, however—proud of her though I am. The...

Uk Relations: Saudi Arabia: Blagging: Leveson Inquiry (7 Mar 2018)

Alex Norris: The Secretary of State says it is not desirable to look at the events of the past because the Department is focusing its efforts on fake news and clickbait. Why can we not do both?
