Finance Bill: Review of impact of Act on job creation (1 Jul 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: Our economy stands on the brink of catastrophe. The coronavirus job retention scheme has been, there is no doubt, an unprecedented package of support, which I welcomed as a vital lifeline for employers and sectors across our economy. We have seen already, however, how the failure to attach conditionality to the scheme meant that too many employers have used it as a subsidy towards the notice...

Public Bill Committee: Trade Bill: Import of agricultural goods after IP completion day (25 Jun 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: I recently took part in an update call with the Secretary of State about the progress of the UK-US trade deal. She made a very interesting point in answer to a question from the hon. Member for Wyre Forest (Mark Garnier) regarding food standards. He asked about outcome versus process and the technicality of that when it comes to animal welfare. The Secretary of State said that we had spelled...

Public Bill Committee: Trade Bill: Provision of advice, support and assistance by the TRA (25 Jun 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: On a point of clarification, my constituency manufactures one fifth of the world’s gin. Would my constituents be impacted by the measures that my hon. Friend refers to?

Testing of NHS and Social Care Staff (24 Jun 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: The coronavirus crisis has reaffirmed what Labour has always stated: that the NHS is the jewel of our country’s public services. We are beyond fortunate to have such brilliant and dedicated doctors, nurses and support staff, including cleaners, from around the world who are working for us in the health service—such as the student nurses from the University of Chester’s Warrington campus...

Public Bill Committee: Trade Bill: Implementation of international trade agreements (23 Jun 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: Very quickly, the provisions in the amendment could prove to be some of the most significant debated today, particularly proposed new paragraph (e) regarding antibiotics. We have seen that antibiotic resistance is one of the greatest threats—perhaps even an existential threat—facing humanity. It is as significant as the climate crisis. As we have seen with coronavirus, it would wreak not...

Public Bill Committee: Trade Bill: Implementation of international trade agreements (23 Jun 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: Can I say what an honour it is to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Graham? In the context of the debates about racial inequality that are taking place around the world, and the Government’s announcement that they will seek to absorb the Department for International Development into the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, it is vital to ensure that we do not shy away from our international...

Public Bill Committee: Trade Bill: Implementation of the Agreement on Government Procurement (18 Jun 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: The Government’s professed commitment to levelling up is really important and relates to points made by other hon. Members. My constituency of Warrington North is considered to be the second-best place in the country for start-ups and the best place in the north-west. It is important to get public procurement right. As my hon. Friend the Member for Sefton Central has said, there have been...

Public Bill Committee: Trade Bill: Implementation of the Agreement on Government Procurement (18 Jun 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: I just want to come in on the point about labour market interventions. Local government procurement is a good example of where there is a need for something sectoral and robust. For example, there is a national agreement for the engineering construction industry, known as NAECI, for which the minimum rate of pay is £18.63 an hour. If a local council was to procure even on a real living wage,...

Public Bill Committee: Trade Bill: Implementation of the Agreement on Government Procurement (18 Jun 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: Just to pick up on that point, it is important to consider employment multipliers in public procurement around renewables. I am concerned that as the balance of renewables in our energy mix has increased substantially over the past 10 years, which is fantastic news for the UK’s commitment to decarbonisation, the number of green jobs has actually significantly reduced. The Office for...

Public Bill Committee: Trade Bill: Examination of Witness (18 Jun 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: The UK is massively competitive in digital and e-commerce, and we expect it to be even bigger in the post-covid economy. However, I am quite concerned about what future trading agreements mean for online harms, because of things such as section 230 laws in the US on platforms’ liability for what they host. Is this an area that you think should and could be covered by the Bill?Q

Public Bill Committee: Trade Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 Jun 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: I want to declare an interest: my father is the president of the TUC this year.

Planning Process: Probity (11 Jun 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: Campaigners in Warrington North have been battling to save Peel Hall from development for over three decades. With planning law already weighted so heavily in favour of development, what assurances can the Minister give that the developer cannot simply make a substantial donation to the Conservative party to subvert the process and that residents will get the fair hearing they deserve and can...
