Social Security (Additional Payments) Bill (22 Jun 2022)

Lee Anderson: Thank you for calling me so early in the debate, Madam Deputy Speaker; it is a great privilege.

The Labour party thinks that the only way to help families is to just keep increasing benefits, but working-class people in places such as Ashfield are a bit more savvy than...

Social Security (Additional Payments) Bill (22 Jun 2022)

Lee Anderson: I will tell the hon. Lady what is generous: a single parent, like my friend and I were all those years ago, getting £24,000 a year for working 16 hours a week. [Interruption.] The hon. Lady can shake her head, but I think that is a pretty generous payment. That person would not be paying any income tax. Come to Ashfield and ask if £24,000 net is a good income. It would be a struggle to find...

Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Topical Questions (21 Jun 2022)

Industrial Action on the Railway (20 Jun 2022)

Lee Anderson: This strike is a real kick in the teeth for hard-working taxpayers, who have dug deep over the past 18 months to keep this industry alive. Does my right hon. Friend agree that the Labour party—the spineless party opposite—should grow a backbone and condemn these strikes?

Home Department: Topical Questions (20 Jun 2022)

Lee Anderson: Now then, when we had a Labour police and crime commissioner and a Labour MP in Ashfield, the only thing they ever did of any note was to close our local police station. Since we have had a sensible Conservative MP in Ashfield, we have two new Operation Reacher teams, safer streets funding for the New Cross area and more bobbies on the beat, but will the Home Secretary please back our latest...

Public Bill Committee: Public Order Bill: Clause 6 - Powers to stop and search on suspicion (16 Jun 2022)

Lee Anderson: Does the hon. Lady really believe that our police are that daft that they would arrest somebody for carrying a lock when they are on their push bike going to a protest or wherever else? Does she really believe that?

Public Bill Committee: Public Order Bill: Clause 6 - Powers to stop and search on suspicion (16 Jun 2022)

Lee Anderson: I speak with some experience on the matter because I was a tunneller; I worked underground in coalmines in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire for many years. It is a dangerous, dirty and horrible life-risking job, so I would welcome any measure that acts as a deterrent—it is a drastic measure. Does the hon. Member not agree that we should be doing everything in our power to stop these people...

Rail Strikes (15 Jun 2022)

Lee Anderson: The hon. Gentleman makes a good point, and I have been on strike a few times myself. Does he think that any Opposition Member who has received a donation from the RMT should put that money in a pot to help people who suffer during next week’s rail strike? Does he also think that other MPs who have stolen money from the mineworkers—165 grand in the case of the hon. Member for Wansbeck...
