Advice Services (Nottingham) — [Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (11 Oct 2017)

Alex Norris: I beg to move, That this House has considered access to advice services in Nottingham. To be a new Member is to be confronted by a series of firsts on an almost daily basis, and today is no different. This is the first Westminster Hall debate that I have had the privilege of leading and my first contribution to a debate with you in the Chair, Ms Dorries. I hope to do it well. I am grateful...

Advice Services (Nottingham) — [Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (11 Oct 2017)

Alex Norris: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention. I know he feels strongly about this issue and I share his concern. In a diverse city such as ours, with the new and emerging communities that we have, there is a gap and it is not clear what is meant to fill it. As I said, local government has a critical role to play in the provision of advice services. Nottingham City Council has played an...

Advice Services (Nottingham) — [Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (11 Oct 2017)

Alex Norris: I thank my hon. Friend for her intervention; I agree completely. At the moment—I will turn to this shortly—there is a blizzard of funding that has to be pulled together, and each of those sources is under pressure, for various reasons. At a time when, as my hon. Friend says and as was said in this place earlier today, the Government are charging 55p a minute for people to get...

Finance Bill (12 Sep 2017)

Alex Norris: Given that the only numbers in the Conservative manifesto were the page numbers, does the right hon. Gentleman understand why Labour Members are slightly concerned that, despite what he says, the numbers in the Finance Bill do not add up?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Alex Norris: During June’s election, I made two promises about Brexit to my electorate, now my constituents: first, that I would respect the outcome of the referendum; and secondly, that I would work to get the best deal for our fine city. Those are promises that I endeavour to keep every day—I am visibly proclaiming that—and I will do so today by voting for Labour’s reasoned...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Alex Norris: I thank my hon. Friend for his intervention. I know that in lofty debates such as this, which people will study for decades, we ought to quote high-minded sources to respond to such questions. I am going to draw on a favourite quote of mine, from a guy called Jim Palmer. He is an American. He is not a founding father; he was a Baltimore Orioles pitcher and is a member of the Baseball Hall of...

Exiting the European Union: UK Workers’ Rights (7 Sep 2017)

Alex Norris: We have heard very warm words about protecting workers’ rights, something which will be tested over time, but will Ministers detail today the precise mechanism that they will use to work with trade unions and employers to ensure that Britain does not become the low-standards capital of Europe post-Brexit and to maintain workers’ rights over time?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Cyber-crime (5 Sep 2017)

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Jobcentre Closures (19 Jul 2017)

Alex Norris: Given that UK Government cuts to social security and new sanctions on low-paid workers are likely to increase demand for jobcentres, do Ministers agree that it is reckless and perverse of the Government to be closing them down, especially in our most deprived communities that have some of the highest rates of unemployment?

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Topical Questions (13 Jul 2017)

Alex Norris: The Transport Secretary is due to outline his plans for rail investment in the coming days. There is real concern that the promised electrification of the midland main line, which has the best business case, will be delayed again or dropped completely. Keeping promises is important. Will Ministers be keeping theirs?

Schools: Nottingham (12 Jul 2017)

Alex Norris: I will start by declaring an interest as chair of governors at Rosslyn Park Primary School. I shall not impose on the Minister’s time for more than four or five minutes; I am enormously grateful to him for giving me the opportunity to speak. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Nottingham South (Lilian Greenwood) on securing the debate. She, like me, made school cuts the focus...

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Climate Change (11 Jul 2017)

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Cyber-security (5 Jul 2017)

Debate on the Address: Health, Social Care and Security (28 Jun 2017)

Alex Norris: Health and social care integration is prized on both sides of the House. Does my hon. Friend agree that it is jeopardised by Government plans to base it on pounds and pence, not the needs of people?

Debate on the Address: Education and Local Services (27 Jun 2017)

Alex Norris: Thank you for this opportunity to make my maiden speech in this important debate, Mr Speaker. As I believe is customary, I wish to start by paying tribute to my predecessor—this is something I am very glad to do. Graham Allen served our community in Nottingham North with distinction over the past 30 years. He has fought for better jobs, decent housing and the best possible education...

Given the ease with which, just yesterday, £1 billion was found to protect only one job in Westminster, will the Minister please say what actions the Government are taking to encourage business to offer genuine financial and personal security to the nearly 1 million workers on zero-hours contracts?
