Points of Order (20 Jun 2022)

Matt Rodda: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. An investigation by tonight’s BBC “Panorama” programme appears to show that social media companies are still directing vulnerable young people to content that promotes the carrying of knives. The programme reveals this one and a half years after my constituent, 13-year-old Oliver Stephens, was brutally murdered in a Reading park in a knife...

HM Passport Office Backlog (14 Jun 2022)

Matt Rodda: My hon. Friend is making an excellent speech. Over the past six weeks 26 families have contacted my office, in various states of stress and utter frustration with the Home Office. One family have been waiting 14 weeks for a passport for a family member to visit a terminally ill relative. To me, that sums up the problem. As my hon. Friend is explaining so perfectly, it is the result of a lack...

Solar Farms and Battery Storage (8 Jun 2022)

Matt Rodda: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Paisley. I thank the hon. Member for North Wiltshire (James Gray) and the other speakers, who made some very interesting points. I am very much in favour of a sensible approach to this issue that balances the importance of energy security and tackling the climate emergency with not creating eyesores in the countryside. I am proud of our...

Solar Farms and Battery Storage (8 Jun 2022)

Matt Rodda: The hon. Gentleman is making a fascinating speech. Does he feel that there is a need to prioritise brownfield land and particularly to look at brownfield in urban areas, as well as in rural areas?

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill (8 Jun 2022)

Matt Rodda: rose—

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill (8 Jun 2022)

Matt Rodda: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for giving way. She is absolutely right to highlight the very poorly designed planning system and the failure of the current proposals to change anything. In my area, there are enormous pressures on land and terrible pressures on green spaces, yet brownfield land in the south of England is not being redeveloped as it should be. When it is redeveloped, it is not...

Children’s Education Recovery and Childcare Costs (7 Jun 2022)

Matt Rodda: It is an absolute pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Bolton North East (Mark Logan). That was a lovely story about his daughter, and I wish her a happy birthday. I hope the whole family enjoys a wonderful day out in central London. It is also an absolute pleasure to speak today in this important debate and I hope that we will have further opportunities to debate education, which is such...

Children’s Education Recovery and Childcare Costs (7 Jun 2022)

Matt Rodda: Will the Minister give way?

Children’s Education Recovery and Childcare Costs (7 Jun 2022)

Matt Rodda: The Minister is being very generous with his time. The hon. Member for Eastleigh (Paul Holmes) made a good point about recruitment and retention. Can the Minister tell us a bit more about what he is doing specifically to support the retention of these vital public servants, and, in particular, what he is doing to deal with the loss of teachers in high-cost areas? In the area that I...

Children’s Education Recovery and Childcare Costs (7 Jun 2022)

Matt Rodda: I am grateful to the Minister for his time. In a very difficult incident in my constituency, a young boy was brutally stabbed—the Minister may well have come across the case some time ago. I have received from a retired teacher who used to be a local education authority adviser a fascinating suggestion that I wish to put the Minister: is it possible to include in personal, social, health...

Work and Pensions: Pensioners: Cost of Living (6 Jun 2022)

Matt Rodda: The cost of living crisis is leaving families and pensioners wondering how on earth they will make ends meet. Inflation is running at 11% for everyday goods, and petrol is now nearly £2 a litre, yet the Government’s response has favoured the wealthier while failing those in greatest need. Will the Minister explain why second home owners were offered extra help while at the very same time...

Ukraine (25 May 2022)

Matt Rodda: I offer my wholehearted support for Finland and Sweden’s inclusion in NATO, and for the important work that NATO does on collective security. Does my hon. Friend agree that, on a parallel track, there should be much better support for refugees? The Government need to step up their support, particularly with respect to family reunification. I have recently dealt with some very difficult...

Cost of Living: Fiscal Approach — [Derek Twigg in the Chair] (25 May 2022)

Matt Rodda: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairship, Mr Twigg. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Barnsley Central (Dan Jarvis) for his excellent work in securing the debate, and for his powerful speech. In the time allowed, I would like to raise three key points about the cost of living crisis that is facing families and pensioners throughout the country—first, to raise some matters...
