Upcoming Business – Commons: Main Chamber (9 Oct 2018)

Assaults on Retail Workers (Offences) – Alex Norris. Ten Minute Rule Motion

Scallop Fishing: Bay of Seine: Business of the House (13 Sep 2018)

Alex Norris: The excellent Save Our Schools East Midlands campaign has highlighted that 82 out of 84 schools in the city of Nottingham face real-terms cuts by 2020. This is an abysmal set of affairs. I know that the Leader of the House shares my enthusiasm for early intervention and investment in our children, so may we please have a debate in Government time about what a false economy these real-terms...

Bedford Prison (13 Sep 2018)

Alex Norris: This is the fourth prison in the urgent notification process. In the past, the response has tended to involve three things: change the leaders, put more staff in, reduce the number of prisoners. All those are sensible, but they have an impact on the rest of the estate: there are only so many leaders, new staff and places to which to move prisoners. How many more times can the Minister respond...

Public Bill Committee: Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill (12 Sep 2018)

Alex Norris: Thank you, Mr Owen. Over the weekend and on Monday, I read coverage relating to this vote. One national newspaper quoted the Minister from our meeting last week, and the Committee was characterised as obscure. I am not sure whether it is a promotion or a demotion, after 13 or so weeks, to have reached the ranks of obscure. When we are still here in March, as the hon. Member for Glasgow East...

Public Bill Committee: Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill (12 Sep 2018)

Alex Norris: I am grateful to the right hon. Gentleman for his intervention; his recollection of 1968 may well be stronger than mine, for obvious reasons. Perhaps I am putting a gloss on things and maybe we are looking back, as we tend to do, through sepia or whatever, but the point is that we have never been more partisan and red state/blue state than we are today, and this process is the perfect example...

Public Bill Committee: Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill (12 Sep 2018)

Alex Norris: I am sure that we all want to pass on our congratulations to the hon. Gentleman. Yes, let us at least get this done before those children are at university, if not at school.

Victims Strategy (10 Sep 2018)

Alex Norris: We know that the people who are most vulnerable to crime are those furthest from mainstream services. It is the woman suffering at the hands of her partner, the trafficked person who does not speak English or the child groomed in their community who the consultations detailed today must reach. Who do the Government intend to engage with to ensure that the voice of those who are heard the...

Public Bill Committee: Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill (5 Sep 2018)

Alex Norris: The right hon. Gentleman said that the report would go to the Leader of the House. My understanding is that it now goes to the Cabinet Office—that was changed last week—so it might be helpful if the Minister, in her reply, says how quickly the Cabinet Office intends to publish it or whether it intends to sit on it.

HMP Birmingham (4 Sep 2018)

Alex Norris: It is clear that drugs have played a significant role in the problems in Birmingham; similarly, drugs have played a significant role in the challenges in Nottingham Prison, and I suspect across the prison estate. What is the Minister’s latest assessment of the use of body scanners, and what is the latest legal advice he has been given about how widely they can be used?

Windrush (4 Sep 2018)

Alex Norris: In our sixth report on the Windrush generation, the Home Affairs Committee stressed the need for transparency on the Sir Alex Allan report. As the Minister has said, the Home Secretary has promised to consider that, as he has been doing for a number of months. Do those at the Home Office really not understand that if they want to rebuild trust following this fiasco, hiding things that they...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Armed Forces: Deployment (4 Sep 2018)

Alex Norris: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, whether he has discussed the UK’s first strike policy with the Prime Minister since his appointment; and if he will make a statement.

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Armed Forces: Deployment (4 Sep 2018)

Alex Norris: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what assessment he has made of the implications for the UK’s first strike capability of the UK leaving the EU.

[Sir Graham Brady in the Chair] (24 Jul 2018)

Alex Norris: I beg to move, That this House has considered rail investment in the East Midlands. There are some firsts today, Sir Graham—I am always dealing with firsts. This is my first time under your chairship, which is very much appreciated. I also did not know before now that we could start early, which is very exciting, and I shall avail myself of the extra minutes to illuminate my subject...

[Sir Graham Brady in the Chair] (24 Jul 2018)

Alex Norris: I am very grateful for that intervention. That is exactly right. This is not, dare I say it, an issue for just the current Government; it has been an issue for previous ones too. Our approach has to be one of consensus, and I think that that is how we will best get what we want. In thanking my neighbour to the east, I ought to reference my neighbour to the south, my hon. Friend the Member...

[Sir Graham Brady in the Chair] (24 Jul 2018)

Alex Norris: The hon. Gentleman makes an excellent point. I am a big believer in our region’s future lying in the strength of HS2 and the logistics hubs that we can put around it and our airport. However, the hon. Gentleman’s community and mine will not benefit from that unless we can get there, and getting there cannot mean just going into the nearest big city and going out; we have to get...
