[Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] — Human Rights (23 Jan 2014)

John Stanley: I am pleased to follow the right hon. Member for Cynon Valley (Ann Clwyd) who, as we know, has made such a signal contribution to the advancement of human rights. As we know, Mao Tse-tung, who was one of history’s worst human rights abusers, enjoined his followers to carry around his little red book. My personal alternative to the little red book, although I do not always manage to carry...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: North Korea (16 Dec 2013)

John Stanley: Given that the United Kingdom remains a member of the armistice commission which was established at the end of the Korean war, can my right hon. Friend give an unequivocal assurance that, in the event of further military provocations from the north and a military response from the south, the United Kingdom Government will use their position as a member of the commission to do their utmost to...

[Mark Pritchard in the Chair] — Arms Exports and Arms Control (21 Nov 2013)

John Stanley: I regret that the Minister has chosen not to give way to me before he sat down. I think that that is a less than courteous way to treat the members of the Committees. He does not need to write to me on the key point that I was going to raise with him, because I was asking whether he would confirm that he and his Department accept that the Government’s policy on arms export and internal...

[Mark Pritchard in the Chair] — Arms Exports and Arms Control (21 Nov 2013)

John Stanley: The Minister has come back with the “There is no evidence” response. Will he at least acknowledge that the British Government cannot possibly have any idea at all of what subsequently happened in Syria to the potassium fluoride and sodium fluoride that have been exported there since 2004? That being the case, the Government surely cannot just take refuge behind “There is no evidence”,...

John Stanley: Before my right hon.

There are also a number of machine guns, but what use are they for anti-piracy measures?

[Mark Pritchard in the Chair] — Arms Exports and Arms Control (21 Nov 2013)

John Stanley: The hon. Gentleman has raised, as I did in my opening remarks, an absolutely key point. It may help hon. Members if I set out exactly why we say that the Government are quoting selectively. The key document, in annex 8 of volume 2 of the report, is the consolidated criteria written answer given by the then Minister of State at the Foreign Office, the right hon. Member for Neath (Mr Hain). In...

[Mark Pritchard in the Chair] — Arms Exports and Arms Control (21 Nov 2013)

John Stanley: The 2013 report by the Committees on Arms Export Controls is the most extensive that we have ever produced. The report, plus its evidence, encompasses nearly 900 pages in three volumes, all of which are available on the internet, although in the interests of economy, only the first volume has been printed. It is entirely for the House and those who are outside it to decide whether the length...

[Mark Pritchard in the Chair] — Arms Exports and Arms Control (21 Nov 2013)

John Stanley: My hon. Friend will be glad to know that he has anticipated what I will come to a little later in my remarks. I come to our difference with the Government over one critical piece of information. Members from throughout the House were utterly appalled by the sarin attack that took place in Damascus on 21 August. Sarin is a ghastly chemical weapon. It is one of the most painful and grim ways...

Communities and Local Government Committee Report: Private Rented Sector: Summer Adjournment (18 Jul 2013)

John Stanley: My constituent, Mrs Rene Chung, is not an illegal immigrant, although that is how she has been treated, in part, by the Home Office and the UK Border Agency—I am glad to see that the Chair of the Home Affairs Committee, the right hon. Member for Leicester East (Keith Vaz), is in his place. Mrs Rene Chung is a Canadian citizen and she has been living in the UK, perfectly legally, since...

Communities and Local Government Committee Report: Private Rented Sector: Summer Adjournment (18 Jul 2013)

Backbench Business — Nato ( 4 Jul 2013)

He has fulfilled his responsibilities as president of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly in an exemplary manner, to the credit of Members in all parts of this House. All three of the major military contributors to NATO have in the last few weeks made a significant policy change on the supply of...

Backbench Business — Nato ( 4 Jul 2013)

John Stanley: The hon. Gentleman will not be surprised to learn that he has anticipated a point I am about to raise.

His answers were extremely illuminating. In reply to my first...
