Could the Minister work with the local colleges, which can provide opportunity and skills? It is...

Coastal Communities: East Devon ( 8 May 2024)

Jim Shannon: I commend the hon. Gentleman for initiating the debate. Does he recognise the good work that levelling-up funding has done, and the fact that so many people and many councils can take advantage of it? Does he also endorse the view that whatever party may be in government in the future, it should be an integral part of the funding structure of every council in the United Kingdom?

West Midlands: Transport ( 8 May 2024)

Jim Shannon: I congratulate the hon. Lady on securing this debate. Was meeting net zero targets part of her questionnaire? If it was, if we have to meet net zero targets, we have to have the infrastructure in place. I think the hon. Lady is saying that if that infrastructure is not in place, we cannot meet our net zero targets. That will also mean that we cannot deliver on the buses she would like to have...

Jim Shannon: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Universal Postal Service Order: Rhondda ( 8 May 2024)

Jim Shannon: Absolutely. I commend the hon. Gentleman for bringing forward this issue; he is right.

Indeed, not just to secure this nation but to speak up for those in other...

Countering Iran’s Hostile Activities — [Gordon Henderson in the Chair] ( 8 May 2024)

Jim Shannon: Just this week in the press, I noticed a story that suggested that some of the dark oil that the right hon. Gentleman referred to is being shipped in unsafe boats and ships; they leak, they have engine problems and so on. That particular type of movement of oil is dangerous not only because of the finance it generates but because it is environmentally dangerous for the rest of the world.

Russia ( 8 May 2024)

Jim Shannon: I thank the Foreign Secretary for his statement and very much welcome his clear commitment, which encourages all of us in this House and across this great nation. Bearing in mind the overnight raid on Ukraine’s energy facilities and the continued aggression carried out while our eyes are turned towards the middle east, does he not believe that we must send the swift and strong message to...

End of Custody Supervised Licence: Extension ( 8 May 2024)

Jim Shannon: I thank the Minister for his answers to all the questions. The scheme was initially designed to allow short-term early release by a matter of days, yet some releases are now early by some 70 days.

Road Safety: Headlight Glare ( 8 May 2024)

Jim Shannon: I commend the hon. Gentleman for bringing this forward.

For new licence...
