Fishing Industry: Visas for Foreign Workers (20 Apr 2023)

Sarah Jones: Labour recognises the vital role that the fishing industry plays in securing the food that we all rely on. That is why it is so important that our immigration system is designed alongside the agricultural sector with the specific sector bodies representing its constituent parts. The announcement this week is a prime example of the Government’s points-based system not working as it should....

Written Answers — Department for Education: Further Education: Sixth Form Education (20 Apr 2023)

Chinese Police Stations in UK (19 Apr 2023)

Sarah Jones: I am perplexed, and my constituents are very concerned. At the start of November, the Security Minister said in response to an urgent question that there was an investigation and that he would come back to the House as soon as possible to provide a report. He promised to meet me. I have emailed him multiple times and have even texted him, but I have had nothing in response, and now we read...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Proscribed Organisations (19 Apr 2023)

Machetes: Consultation (18 Apr 2023)

Sarah Jones: The additional extracts were not in my copy of the statement either. Labour supports measures to ban zombie-style knives and machetes. Knife crime devastates lives and rips families apart, but this is too little, too late—a smokescreen to distract from the Government’s appalling record. Knife crime has risen across the country by 70% since 2015, and the whole country is affected. Since...

Strip Searching of Children (28 Mar 2023)

Sarah Jones: We all accept that in certain extreme circumstances it will be necessary to search children, and this discussion does not question that. The findings of the Children’s Commissioner, Dame Rachel de Souza, on the strip search of children are shocking, and I pay tribute to her. One child who was strip searched aged 13 is quoted as saying: “They told me to get naked. They told me to bend...

Public Order Bill: Clause 11 - Powers to stop and search without suspicion (22 Mar 2023)

Sarah Jones: On that point, I remind the right hon. Gentleman that every year that the former Prime Minister, the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson), was Mayor of London, the number of stop and searches went down.

Public Order Bill: Clause 11 - Powers to stop and search without suspicion (22 Mar 2023)

Sarah Jones: Stop and search is a crucial tool, as we all agree. Its normal usage is based on intelligence around a crime or a potential crime, based on proper suspicion, and applied for the right reasons. In our country, we use stop and search with suspicion to look for weapons, drugs and stolen property. Under particular circumstances, we use suspicionless stop and search—a section 60, as we call...

Public Order Bill: Clause 11 - Powers to stop and search without suspicion (22 Mar 2023)

Sarah Jones: I thank the right hon. Member for his intervention. We do not disagree on some of the struggles here—we never have. We have never said that it is not a problem in terms of major infrastructure, getting around the country and so on. Our argument has always been, first, a series of existing laws is in place that enables the police to do their job. Secondly, the use of injunctions could have...

Home Department: Antisocial Behaviour (20 Mar 2023)

Sarah Jones: I see from the weekend papers that the Conservatives are about to introduce an antisocial behaviour strategy. After 13 years of doing nothing, of dismissing antisocial behaviour as low level and unimportant, apparently the strategy will include Labour’s plan to tackle fly-tipping, Labour’s plan to tackle graffiti and Labour’s plan for community payback. May I ask the Home Secretary...

Public Order Bill: Clause 9 - Offence of interference with access to or provision of abortion services ( 7 Mar 2023)

Sarah Jones: The hon. Gentleman has made many good points already this afternoon, and I entirely agree; “more than a minor degree” is way too low a bar to allow these interventions. Many Members and many watching the debate would have fallen foul of this law. The amendment is drawn so widely that it is almost meaningless. As the hon. Gentleman said, when there are protests on Whitehall, near...
