Britain in the World (13 Jan 2020)

Daisy Cooper: It is a great honour to make my maiden speech following many other accomplished and passionate speakers. My constituency of St Albans is very proud of its contribution both to Britain’s history and to Britain’s place in the world. Alban himself is the first recorded Christian martyr and Britain’s first saint. He was executed for giving shelter to a stranger fleeing persecution, and his...

Britain in the World (13 Jan 2020)

Daisy Cooper: You are very welcome. The war of the roses started on the doorstep of The Boot, and Oliver Cromwell stayed the night at the inn now known as Ye Olde Fighting Cocks. These two pubs and many more in St Albans and around the country are under threat like never before. They have suffered a crippling rise in business rates, and the measures announced in this Queen’s Speech to help small retail...

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Leasehold Property) Bill (22 Jan 2020)

Daisy Cooper: The Minister mentioned delays. I welcome the Bill, although it is overdue, and its objectives. One of our challenges, however, is that up to 3,000 applications a year could be going to the tribunal from suppliers wanting to secure access. The Minister said that he would be taking a hammer to the delays and barriers; what will he do to ensure that the tribunal has the capacity and resources to...

Assisted Dying Law — [Sir Graham Brady in the Chair] (23 Jan 2020)

Daisy Cooper: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Edinburgh West (Christine Jardine) for securing this important and sensitive debate. Like, I am sure, other MPs, I have received a good number of emails on this subject. Many asked me to speak in favour of assisted dying, and many asked me to speak against it. It is of huge regret to me that previous debates on such a sensitive and, for many people,...

5G Network and Huawei (27 Jan 2020)

Daisy Cooper: In addition to legitimate security concerns, the human rights implications of granting access must not be ignored. Huawei has been implicated in mass oppression in China, selling infrastructure that has allowed it to build a surveillance state and disseminate disinformation and racially charged propaganda. To ensure that we continue to defend human rights here and abroad, what steps will the...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Criminal Records: Disclosure of Information (28 Jan 2020)

Daisy Cooper: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what recent assessment has he made of the implications for his policies on the disclosure of criminal records of the Supreme Court judgement of 30 January 2019 on that matter.

UK Telecommunications (28 Jan 2020)

Daisy Cooper: The Government make a distinction between the core and the periphery, but many people have made the point that as the network continues to integrate, that distinction will disappear. What reassurances can the Secretary of State provide on that? The periphery, where Huawei will be committed to operate, includes radio masts that are used for emergency services, search and rescue and distress...

Criminal Law (28 Jan 2020)

Daisy Cooper: The Minister has outlined that this applies to rapists, and to those accused and found guilty of grievous bodily harm.

Criminal Law (28 Jan 2020)

Daisy Cooper: Yes, GBH with intent—so we are talking about incredibly violent criminals. But the Government’s own assessment of these proposed laws says that they could increase prison overcrowding, introduce significant costs and lead to increased prisoner violence. The gravest risk, however, is that prisoners spend more of their sentence in prison and less time on release with a licence, which could...

Special Educational Needs and Disability Funding — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (29 Jan 2020)

Daisy Cooper: Does my hon. Friend agree that it is completely unacceptable that families have to wait for far too long? He mentions the delays and assessment refusals, and how people have to wait a long time once assessments are granted. The statutory timescale is 20 weeks: four and a half months to wait to get an assessment. Even in my area of Hertfordshire County Council, one in five of the families do...

Transport: Topical Questions (30 Jan 2020)

Daisy Cooper: Many of my constituents have been affected by the redesign of airspace, as many live below the flightpaths in and out of London Luton airport. The Civil Aviation Authority promised a post-implementation review of the changes, and the review of one such route is now overdue by more than two years. What assessment has the Minister made of whether the Civil Aviation Authority is fit for purpose...

Written Answers — Prime Minister: Intelligence and Security Committee: Public Appointments (3 Feb 2020)

Daisy Cooper: To ask the Prime Minister, on what date he plans to nominate members of the Intelligence and Security Committee for approval by Parliament.

Streatham Incident (3 Feb 2020)

Daisy Cooper: The fact is that this attacker should not have been released from prison automatically. The law requiring automatic release is wrong, and it is right that we are now going to fix it, but that in itself is not enough. Whether people are locked up for two years, five years, 10 years or more, there is a very grave risk that people will come out of prison more dangerous than when they went in...

Lobby and Media Briefings: Journalists' Access (4 Feb 2020)

Daisy Cooper: It is quite extraordinary that the Government say that there is effectively nothing to see here, when the News Media Association and the National Union of Journalists have both said that this potentially represents a threat to the freedom of the press, and both have asked for the Government to consult them on the changes. Once again, the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and the Prime...

Beer and Pub Taxation — [James Gray in the Chair] (5 Feb 2020)

Daisy Cooper: I thank the hon. Member for Dudley South (Mike Wood) for securing this debate. As the newly elected vice-chair of the all-party parliamentary group for beer, I am pleased to be able to speak in this debate. In St Albans, there are a number of independent businesses that do not know if they will survive this financial year because of eye-watering increases in business rates. This Government...
