Corporate Insolvency and Governance Bill (3 Jun 2020)

Jerome Mayhew: My hon. Friend talks very persuasively about this, and I have found myself nodding along to everything he has been saying for the last several minutes, but he keeps on referring to a conflict of interest, when surely what he is talking about is better named corruption.

Corporate Insolvency and Governance Bill (3 Jun 2020)

Jerome Mayhew: Could I just come back on that interesting point about the risk of personal liability hanging over directors? I declare an interest, as I am a director of a trading business. It fits very well, does my hon. Friend not agree, with the development of the CBIL scheme? Originally, that scheme was not very popular, because many banks insisted on personal liability for businesses and for the...

Covid-19: Aviation (3 Jun 2020)

Jerome Mayhew: Much of the anger that has been expressed in this House is because British Airways has taken advantage of a Government scheme intended to protect jobs and used it as a convenient funding stream for a long-planned corporate restructuring. It is a breach of faith. Does my hon. Friend agree that British Airways should pay a price for that breach of faith?

Speaker’s Statement: Hong Kong National Security Legislation: UK Response (2 Jun 2020)

Jerome Mayhew: I welcome my right hon. Friend’s explanation of the Government’s position and his recognition of the growing list of acts of intimidation, authoritarianism and expansionism by the Communist party of China. Is this announcement an individual response to an isolated incident or part of a wider reappraisal of our foreign policy towards China? Does he think that the long-applied and hopeful...

The hon. Member for South West Bedfordshire, representing the Church Commissioners, was asked: Clergy’s Access to Churches (19 May 2020)

Jerome Mayhew: What assessment the Commissioners have made of the implications for the access of clergy to their churches of the most recent Government advice on covid-19.

The hon. Member for South West Bedfordshire, representing the Church Commissioners, was asked: Clergy’s Access to Churches (19 May 2020)

Jerome Mayhew: During this national crisis, there has been a vital role for the established Church to represent the concerns and fears of the whole nation. Does my hon. Friend agree that the physical presence of a parish church, open for prayer and attended by its priests, is an important signal that we are not alone in our struggle? Health workers, care workers, bin collectors, posties and now all those...

Covid-19: Business (12 May 2020)

Jerome Mayhew: Small and medium-sized enterprises working within the construction and home improvement sectors—plumbers, electricians, window fitters—will welcome the guidance that they can undertake work in customers’ houses subject to sensible precautions. Is it my right hon. Friend’s advice that now is the time for our trades to get back to work, to help the economy to bounce back?

Public Services (28 Apr 2020)

Jerome Mayhew: May I wholeheartedly join my right hon. Friend in the tribute he paid to NHS staff and all the key workers throughout the four nations of our kingdom? As we draw close to the summer, the agricultural sector’s need for labour is increasing. With reduced access to foreign labour, what steps are the Government taking to support the agricultural sector?

Horizon Settlement: Future Governance of Post Office Ltd (19 Mar 2020)

Jerome Mayhew: Scandals come and scandals go, and both as a former barrister and as a new Member of this House, it is all too easy when we see a raft of paperwork coming across our desks to scan through the details and forget that each of these scandals is made up of individual cases—individual human stories—so I beg the indulgence of the House and ask to reprise the story of Siobhan Sayer, a...

Horizon Settlement: Future Governance of Post Office Ltd (19 Mar 2020)

Jerome Mayhew: It is absolutely inexplicable, and it lasted right up to the evidence heard last year by Mr Justice Fraser. As was mentioned, he said that the Post Office acted rather like the flat earth society, refusing to believe even its own facts. But there is a strong suspicion that it went further than a refusal to believe; there was actually a question of dishonesty, particularly in the evidence...

Horizon Settlement: Future Governance of Post Office Ltd (19 Mar 2020)

Jerome Mayhew: I entirely agree. It was the very fact that postmistresses and postmasters are at the heart of the community that made the devastation of their reputations all the worse when they were unjustly accused by their employer of dishonesty and theft. I conclude by imploring the Government not to hide behind the corporate veil. Albeit at arm’s length, the Post Office is a part of the...

Local Government Responsibilities: Public Services (18 Mar 2020)

Jerome Mayhew: Is it not the case that this is the kind of situation where it is not just about local government? This is one of those rare occasions—the first time in my lifetime—where it is not sufficient for the community to dial 999 and leave it to local government or the emergency services. We, the people, will be on the frontline, directed and co-ordinated by district councils, or county councils,...

Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (17 Mar 2020)

Jerome Mayhew: Covid-19 is obviously no respecter of international borders. Will the Minister set out what steps the FCO is taking to maximise cross-border co-operation with the Republic of Ireland to manage covid-19 effectively on the island of Ireland?

Covid-19 (16 Mar 2020)

Jerome Mayhew: Hundreds of thousands of students are currently revising for their public examinations. Does the Secretary of State have a contingency plan for GCSEs and A-levels to be sat on time?

China’s Policy on its Uighur Population — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (11 Mar 2020)

Jerome Mayhew: I have my own experience of staying with the Uighurs, having spent some weeks in that part of the world. It is clear to anyone who has lived there what a noble civilisation they represent. To cast an entire population as terrorist sympathisers is an absolute travesty and does not in any way justify the Chinese Government’s undertaking population-level oppression and their wholly...

European Union: Future Relationship (27 Feb 2020)

Jerome Mayhew: British farmers are proud to produce food to the highest standards, and the British consumer benefits from that. Will my right hon. Friend reassure the farmers and consumers of my constituency that those high standards will be maintained in any free trade agreement?

Environment Bill (26 Feb 2020)

Jerome Mayhew: I am delighted that the Government have introduced this Bill which, together with the Agriculture Bill and the Fisheries Bill, shows that we are serious in our resolve to improve the environment and tackle climate change. I congratulate the Secretary of State and his Ministers on creating a structure for long-term environmental improvement, on the application of the principle that the...

February Adjournment (13 Feb 2020)

Jerome Mayhew: I feel hugely privileged to be standing here as the Member of Parliament for Broadland. It is an exquisite sliver of breathtaking Norfolk, from Wighton in the north, where my parents were married, to the Halvergate Marshes near Breydon Water in the south-east. It is named after the eponymous Norfolk Broads, a magical combining of flooded medieval peat cuttings interconnected by rivers: the...
