International Development: Forestry/Biodiversity (29 Jan 2020)

Alex Norris: Just over a week ago, the Prime Minister made a showpiece promise to end all UK aid spending on coal. That is all well and good, but there has not been any such spending since 2012. This is more evidence that the Government are more interested in talking big on climate change globally than in taking action. It is time for the Government to get serious. Will the Minister commit today to...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (18 Nov 2021)

Integrated Rail Plan: North and Midlands (18 Nov 2021)

Alex Norris: Twice in this Chamber I have asked the Prime Minister to commit to the HS2 eastern leg, and twice he has done so from that Dispatch Box. Today, that promise goes up in smoke, as will thousands of jobs associated with the project in the east midlands—more skilled jobs lost in our community. This is economic vandalism. My constituents will ask me why yet another promise to our community has...

Member for Waveney (Peter Aldous) for securing the debate, and I thank the Backbench Business Committee for granting it. I will confess that I love fielding debates for the Opposition in this place. No other parliamentary moment offers the chance to hear the hon. Member for Waveney talk in such depth and...

Health and Social Care: Cancer Outcomes (18 Jan 2022)

But in the latest data the Minister addresses, the number of those who waited for more than two weeks to see a specialist set a new record high for the third month running, soaring to more than 55,000 people in November, prior to the peak of this wave. Macmillan Cancer Supports states that more than...

Elections Bill: New Clause 11 - Power to make regulations about registration, absent voting and other matters (17 Jan 2022)

Alex Norris: It is a pleasure to speak for the Opposition in these proceedings. I am taking on this role partway through matters, but fortunately I stand on the shoulders of outstanding colleagues, particularly my hon. Friend the Member for Lancaster and Fleetwood (Cat Smith), who did a tremendous job and will no doubt continue to do so. Having read the Official Report of the Committee stage, I suspect...

Elections Bill: New Clause 11 - Power to make regulations about registration, absent voting and other matters (17 Jan 2022)

Alex Norris: I confess that I had hoped the hon. Gentleman would ask me that. I have been a Labour party branch secretary, branch chair, constituency secretary, constituency chair, councillor, Member of Parliament and shadow Minister, and I have never once been asked for voter ID at a meeting. That has only ever happened in cases where certain Labour parties were in special measures and it was seen as a...

Elections Bill: New Clause 11 - Power to make regulations about registration, absent voting and other matters (17 Jan 2022)

Alex Norris: The hon. Gentleman reads my mind, because I was about to turn to that issue. I was going to say that the Government will now instead rely on a voter card. First, putting hurdles in the way will take people out and reduce turnout. That alone is a bad thing, but, again, the effect will not be evenly distributed; it will be harder for those in rural communities, who have further to travel, to...

Elections Bill: New Clause 11 - Power to make regulations about registration, absent voting and other matters (17 Jan 2022)

Alex Norris: I want the course of elections to be changed by people—by those eligible to vote. Although some of the seats in this place come down to very fine margins, across virtually every council area there are hyper-marginal seats, and indeed hyper-marginal councils, that will swing on this measure. As I have said, the Bill seeks to tackle something that has yet to be proved to be a problem.

Elections Bill: New Clause 11 - Power to make regulations about registration, absent voting and other matters (17 Jan 2022)

Alex Norris: My hon. Friend knows that of which she speaks. In this place she is a leading campaigner on such issues, and that is exactly what the campaign groups and the representative groups are saying. The only people who do not seem to understand that point are the Government. Let me now turn to inclusivity. Our amendment 2 seeks to retain the current requirement for returning officers to make...
