Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (26 Jan 2016)

Steve Rotheram: My hon. Friend paints a bleak picture of the impact of the cuts. In many ways, Merseyside fire and rescue service is a victim of its own success. It undertook to carry out preventive measures pre-2010, and that had a massive impact on the number of incidents to which it was called out. Last year, fire deaths on Merseyside doubled, but the low point in 2010 was because of those measures. Does...

The Shrewsbury 24 — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] ( 9 Dec 2015)

Steve Rotheram: I first need to thank all hon. and right hon. Members who spoke in what I believe to be a particularly powerful debate. Most reasonable people watching today’s proceedings will come to the conclusion that the case has been overwhelmingly made for the release of the documents. It is for the campaigners to decide what documents they believe to be relevant and for the Government to release...

The Shrewsbury 24 — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] ( 9 Dec 2015)

Steve Rotheram: I am just trying to get my head around what the hon. Gentleman just said. He believes that because there was industrial action that lost the country days, it was okay for the state to stitch up 24 people and imprison them. Is that the point that he was making? I think people will come to their own conclusions.

The Shrewsbury 24 — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] ( 9 Dec 2015)

Steve Rotheram: The hon. Gentleman has had two goes and I think he is digging himself a deeper and deeper hole. The Minister, who is an honourable man, tried to defend his position, but I think he tried to defend the indefensible on this occasion. He tried to muddy the waters around the release of the documents, but this is about a miscarriage of justice. That is what is central to today’s debate: a...

The Shrewsbury 24 — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] ( 9 Dec 2015)

Steve Rotheram: I beg to move, That this House has considered the Home Office and the case of the Shrewsbury 24. It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Howarth. As Members will know, this is not the first occasion on which the great injustice of Shrewsbury has been brought before Parliament. I make it clear from the outset that there is no doubt that the jailing of Dessie Warren, Ricky...

The Shrewsbury 24 — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] ( 9 Dec 2015)

Steve Rotheram: Hopefully, between us, we will be able to explain to the people here, and to the wider public watching and listening to this debate, exactly how the Government have backtracked on the promises that were made less than two years ago. If the Government are honest about transparent and open government, which we so often hear about from Government Members, the easy thing for them to do is to...

The Shrewsbury 24 — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] ( 9 Dec 2015)

Steve Rotheram: I think the argument is persuasive. To tell the truth, I never speak for the shadow Home Secretary, my right hon. Friend the Member for Leigh; he can speak for himself. Given that he will wind up, he will address the points made by the right hon. Gentleman. It has taken 43 years to get where we are today, and the argument that we are putting forward overwhelmingly demonstrates, I think, that...

The Shrewsbury 24 — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] ( 9 Dec 2015)

Steve Rotheram: It is sustained in as much as it has taken Governments of all persuasions—to tell the truth—more than 43 years to get to the position we are in today. I am no friend of the current Government, but we also had an opportunity. We were in government for 13 years and we should have done a lot more than we did. This is not just about the apportionment of blame; it is about trying to get to...

The Shrewsbury 24 — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] ( 9 Dec 2015)

Steve Rotheram: I could not agree with my hon. Friend more, and in fact—I think the shadow Home Secretary will come to this—we want to go further. We want to look at historic injustices in the round. There are direct links between an awful lot of them. There is a thread that goes from 1971, possibly through what happened with Wilson, through the miners’ strike and possibly ending up with Hillsborough....

Consumer Protection (Standards of Fire Resistance of Children’s Fancy Dress and Play Costumes Etc): Clause 34 — Appeals within the United Kingdom: certification of human rights claims ( 1 Dec 2015)

Steve Rotheram: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the Government are focusing on the wrong party in the Bill? They should be concentrating—[Interruption.] They should be concentrating, as the Home Secretary should while I am speaking, on clamping down on unscrupulous employers who prey on the misery of people forced into terrible conditions, such as those exploited on Britain’s building sites. I have...
