Fire Services: North-east England (23 Nov 2022)

Sarah Jones: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Gary. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Washington and Sunderland West (Mrs Hodgson) on securing this important debate. She made a powerful speech, and she is an incredible champion for her area. We were all struck by her story of the children in Barmston Village Primary School, who all had stories to tell about arson. I was...

Fire Services: North-east England (23 Nov 2022)

Sarah Jones: My hon. Friend makes a good point, as always. Labour will put lots more neighbourhood policing back on to our streets to prevent the kind of antisocial behaviour that leads to arson in his area. As we face a cold winter, when people will be forced to choose between heating and eating thanks to the Government’s mini-Budget and the huge rises in costs and inflation, we have already heard...

Fire Services: North-east England (23 Nov 2022)

Sarah Jones: I do not think anyone thinks 2010 was year dot, but the Government have been in power for 12 years, and we are judging that record today.

Fire Services: North-east England (23 Nov 2022)

Sarah Jones: My right hon. Friend is absolutely right. They tried to push that funding to make themselves look better, so they could pretend the cuts were smaller than they actually were. We all know what is going on. What is the Minister doing? How are the Government engaging with the FBU and the fire authorities to help us come to an agreement and avoid a strike? I urge her to clarify the Government’s...

Supported Housing (Regulatory Oversight) Bill (18 Nov 2022)

Sarah Jones: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Truro and Falmouth (Cherilyn Mackrory). For a long time we had a railway line from Croydon to Exeter, so I am well aware of the situation with the county lines and the little kids going down to Exeter, and I have worked with the police there in trying to reduce that vulnerability. It is also a real pleasure to speak in the debate, although my...

Supported Housing (Regulatory Oversight) Bill (18 Nov 2022)

Sarah Jones: The hon. Gentleman is making a really good speech. When I visited Croydon jobcentre, I was told that support-exempt accommodation was the biggest problem faced, and that young people who could be working, doing things with their lives and be on the right path, were encouraged not to do so because the tapering off of support was so great that it made it impossible for them.

Supported Housing (Regulatory Oversight) Bill (18 Nov 2022)

Supported Housing (Regulatory Oversight) Bill (18 Nov 2022)

Sarah Jones: No, I will ask a different question. I wonder if the hon. Gentleman has engaged with Minister in the Department for Work and Pensions on the cost of housing benefit for supported exempt accommodation. Do we have any sense of the scale of what is being paid out, quite often to rogue landlords?

Business of the House (17 Nov 2022)

Sarah Jones: I have been working with a bereaved family in Croydon whose father, Andreas Kassianou, died tragically of legionnaires’ disease in hospital in 2020. The NHS triggered an inquest that confirmed that he had died as a result of legionella contracted entirely because of the inadequate flushing of the water in his room by staff. Mr Kassianou’s daughters, who are obviously mourning the loss of...

Home Department: New Police Officers: Entry Pay Rates (14 Nov 2022)

Sarah Jones: New statistics published today reveal that the mini-Budget cost even more than we first thought—a staggering £30 billion. That comes on top of 12 years of austerity, which has seen a real-terms pay cut for police and staff, thousands of jobs lost and prosecutions plummet. The Home Secretary was in the Cabinet and the Minister for Crime, Policing and Fire was No. 2 in the Treasury at the...

Police Service: HMI Report ( 3 Nov 2022)

Sarah Jones: (Urgent Question): To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if she will make a statement on His Majesty’s inspectorate’s report on vetting, misconduct and misogyny in the police service.

Police Service: HMI Report ( 3 Nov 2022)

Sarah Jones: I welcome the Minister to his place. However, I have to say that I am disappointed that the Government are not taking more responsibility and leading from the front following such a grim report. Yesterday’s report is 160 pages of failure—failure to bar the wrong people from joining the police; failure to get rid of them; failure to protect female staff and officers, and failure to protect...

Prime Minister: Engagements ( 2 Nov 2022)

Sarah Jones: The Leader of the Opposition asked the Prime Minister who broke the asylum system—he dodged the question. The truth is that the backlog is now so great, the decision making so collapsed and the returns so low, at a 10th of what they used to be, that the criminal gangs have a business model to die for. Whose fault is that?

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

Sarah Jones: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Edward. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Cynon Valley (Beth Winter) on securing such an important debate. It is wonderful to see that so many people, at least on this side of the House, have attended. It would be helpful if the Minister, whom I welcome to her new position, would answer three questions that were raised in the...

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

Sarah Jones: We are here to debate what public sector workers need in terms of pay, not to make slightly cheap points. Within the first 100 days of a Labour Government, we will outlaw fire and rehire; ban zero-hours contracts; secure rights at work from day one; reform statutory sick pay; reform and strengthen paternity and maternity rights; oversee the roll-out of fair pay agreements to drive up pay and...

Overseas Chinese Police Stations in UK: Legal Status ( 1 Nov 2022)

Sarah Jones: I congratulate the hon. Member for Rutland and Melton (Alicia Kearns) on securing the urgent question. One of the alleged stations is in my constituency. I have to confess that when I first received emails about it from constituents I thought it was some kind of hoax. The address where the police station is supposed to be is that of a business that has written to me recently asking for a...

Contact in Care Settings (27 Oct 2022)

Sarah Jones: On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. The shadow Home Office team has been seeking clarity on security breaches involving the Home Secretary and serious discrepancies in the information provided to Parliament. Yesterday, the Prime Minister stated in this House that the Home Secretary “made an error of judgment, but she recognised that, she raised the matter and she accepted her...
