Australia and New Zealand Trade Deals (14 Nov 2022)

Tony Lloyd: The environment chapter ought to have been capable of actually changing the climate change debate in Australia, so it is disappointing that it has, quite frankly, no teeth whatever. What does that say to countries with which we might want to negotiate to stop deforestation, mining coal and so on?

Australia and New Zealand Trade Deals (14 Nov 2022)

Tony Lloyd: It is a pleasure to see the newly branded hon. Member for Totnes (Anthony Mangnall) in his place. His language is a degree more restrained than I am used to. Perhaps I can speak a bit for him in making the points about scrutiny. Let us be honest about this: parliamentary scrutiny of these two trade agreements has been woefully inadequate. That is because of a lack of commitment by senior...

Australia and New Zealand Trade Deals (14 Nov 2022)

Tony Lloyd: The Minister talked earlier about allowing the British public the chance to purchase in a competitive environment, but competition requires information. If there is no adequate chapter in the Australia agreement about environmental standards and the use of coal, for example, can he tell the House how it is possible for an educated consumer to buy in the way that he suggests?

Written Answers — Department for Education: Multiply Programme (10 Nov 2022)

Tony Lloyd: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, if she will make an estimate of whether there will be an underspend in the Multiply programme budget for the 2022-23 financial year; and whether any underspend could be carried forward into the 2023-24 financial year.

Northern Ireland Elections ( 9 Nov 2022)

Tony Lloyd: Nobody is asking for a running commentary on the protocol negotiations. Three years on, “running” is hardly the expression any of us would use. It is important that we now create trust between the European Commission and the UK Government because, in the end, the protocol must be made to work, which will need compromise on all parts. The gap is very small, but it has to be bridged. Are...

Northern Ireland: NHS Waiting Times ( 9 Nov 2022)

Tony Lloyd: What recent discussions he has had with (a) Cabinet colleagues and (b) representatives of political parties in Northern Ireland on tackling NHS waiting times in Northern Ireland.

Northern Ireland: NHS Waiting Times ( 9 Nov 2022)

Tony Lloyd: Two years ago, the Health Minister Robin Swann, who did such a good job, averted industrial action by ensuring comparability between pay for nurses in Northern Ireland and in England and Wales. The Northern Ireland Fiscal Council says that the budget for health will be 2% lower next year than this year. Will the Minister guarantee that there will be money to pay the nurses, without whom there...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Probate ( 3 Nov 2022)

Tony Lloyd: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, if he will make an estimate of the number and proportion of applications for grant of probate that were resolved within the eight week target in the latest period for which data is available; and how many and what proportion of these applications took more than nine months to resolve.

Public Sector Pay: Proposed Strike Action — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] ( 1 Nov 2022)

Tony Lloyd: Let me add to the point made by my hon. Friend the Member for Leeds East (Richard Burgon). Why not make people like me pay national insurance contributions once we have passed the statutory age for retirement? Why not lift the cap on national insurance contributions, which would raise real money for our national health service? That would be a credible way forward. I hope that the Minister...

Ukraine (31 Oct 2022)

Tony Lloyd: The Foreign Secretary is right to make the point about protecting the infrastructure in Ukraine, because we know that, at the moment, the campaign is about weakening the morale of the Ukrainian people. In that context, is he satisfied that there is the international co-ordination to ensure that British efforts and the efforts of other international partners deliver the support that Ukraine needs?

Written Answers — Home Office: Offences against Children: Rochdale (31 Oct 2022)

Tony Lloyd: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what progress her Department has made on the deportations of members of the Rochdale Grooming Gang; and if she will make a statement.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Air Pollution: Greater Manchester (27 Oct 2022)

Tony Lloyd: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what steps she takes to coordinate policies with Greater Manchester local authorities and the Combined Authority to reduce air pollution emanating from the motorway system across Greater Manchester.

Avanti West Coast ( 7 Sep 2022)

Tony Lloyd: The Minister has varied between apologising and criticising Avanti. The one thing that she has not mentioned is the need to tell Avanti something very clear: get round the negotiating table with ASLEF and the other unions and sort out the industrial relations problem. It is a lousy employer, and a bit of industrial peace would move the railways forward.

Prime Minister: Engagements ( 7 Sep 2022)

Tony Lloyd: On the theme of children, the Prime Minister will know from her time as Children’s Minister that children whose young lungs are exposed to cold and damp housing are more likely to fall seriously ill and possibly die. Child poverty has been growing during her time in different ministerial offices. Will she give a solemn pledge—with no evasion—that no child will go to bed in a cold, damp...

Urgent and Emergency Care ( 5 Sep 2022)

Tony Lloyd: The Secretary of State might recall that in his previous Health incarnation, he responded to a debate about the crisis in the ambulance service in my constituency. It is worse today—much worse. I take the point about delayed discharge, but, even so, is it not better to have people moving into a hospital setting, rather than people not being picked up by ambulances? That is where the real...

Ukraine Update ( 5 Sep 2022)

Tony Lloyd: History can be a double-edged teacher. We know that the Soviet Union lost out in Afghanistan because public opinion among the people of the Soviet Union turned so firmly against it. Are we able to do more to make sure that real information is getting through to the Russian population, particularly older people who are dependent on state-controlled media, about what exactly is happening to...

Home Department: UK and Rwanda Migration and Economic Development Partnership ( 5 Sep 2022)

Tony Lloyd: What recent progress she has made on delivering the UK and Rwanda migration and economic development partnership.

Home Department: UK and Rwanda Migration and Economic Development Partnership ( 5 Sep 2022)

Tony Lloyd: Does credible evidence of the use of violence and torture by the Rwandan security authorities not give the Home Secretary any pause for thought?

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Lighting: Pollution Control (27 Jul 2022)

Tony Lloyd: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, if he will make an assessment of the effectiveness of his Department's policies for reducing light pollution.

Tony Lloyd: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, how many actions under the statutory nuisance regime have been taken regarding light pollution since that regime came into force.
