Home Department: Small Boat Crossings (22 May 2023)

Suzanne Webb: Tackling illegal immigration, like small boats, is a hot topic for many of my constituents; I hear about it time and again on the doorstep, and I see it in my inbox. Can my right hon. Friend assure the people of Stourbridge that it is this Government who can be trusted to make every possible effort to address this complex problem and ensure we stop the illegal boats?

Knife Crime: West Midlands (14 Mar 2023)

Suzanne Webb: I beg to move, That this House has considered the matter of knife crime in the West Midlands. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Dame Caroline. I want to tell you about Ryan Passey. Ryan was aged only 24 when he died from a single fatal stab wound to the heart during a night out at Chicago’s club in Stourbridge in 2017. Six months later, a jury heard Kobe Murray, who was 19...

Knife Crime: West Midlands (14 Mar 2023)

Suzanne Webb: I am pleased to say that some of my constituents have raised two petitions on that matter, and I look forward to seeing how they are pursued through the legislative agenda. West Midlands police recorded the highest rate of 152 offences involving a knife crime per 100,000 of the population in 2021-22, which is significant. The possession of weapons, including knives, has increased since 2012...

Knife Crime: West Midlands (14 Mar 2023)

Suzanne Webb: I commend Danny for the amazing work that his project is doing and I completely agree that early intervention is a very good way to go. I would be more than happy to talk to my hon. Friend in more detail about what we can do as MPs in the west midlands to facilitate such intervention. Not only has there been an increase in the possession of weapons, but there is the corresponding issue of the...

Knife Crime: West Midlands (14 Mar 2023)

Suzanne Webb: I most certainly do. One may consider that the police and crime commissioner is focusing too much of his attention on his mayoral prospects as opposed to performing his role as the police and crime commissioner. He needs to consider that, because we have had a decade of increased crime—significantly increased crime, in fact, with a 496% increase in the possession of weapons, and it is all...

Knife Crime: West Midlands (14 Mar 2023)

Suzanne Webb: I thank my hon. Friend for that very powerful intervention. Again, I completely agree. The intention had always been that the police and crime commissioner role and the mayoral role would be a combined role, and I cannot think of anyone more fitting than our current Mayor, Andy Street, to pick up that combined role. His heart and his passion in the community, as someone who understands that...

Knife Crime: West Midlands (14 Mar 2023)

Suzanne Webb: I thank my right hon. Friend for making that point. I am keen to see early intervention. Where there is a failing police and crime commissioner, community groups seem to do a much better job of understanding and tackling the problem. I am keen to ensure that we get into schools and local community groups. It would be fantastic to get perpetrators of the crime who have gone through the...

Knife Crime: West Midlands (14 Mar 2023)

Suzanne Webb: Again, I cannot but agree. I have just done a radio interview, prior to coming here, in which I talked about that. I completely agree that we need to bring together the community—councillors, councils and MPs—to talk about this. The Government have already acted by making the west midlands one of four pilot areas for serious violence reduction orders, which involve stop and search. I...

Knife Crime: West Midlands (14 Mar 2023)

Suzanne Webb: I thank my right hon. Friend for that. When I am with Ryan’s parents, Ade and Jill, there is a moment every single time when I have to remind myself that every day, every hour, every minute and every second, they mourn the loss of their beloved son. They lost their only child to a heinous knife crime. This year would have been Ryan’s 30th birthday. I will be joining his family and friends...

Civil Service Impartiality ( 6 Mar 2023)

Suzanne Webb: The whole situation surrounding this appointment is quite extraordinary, and many will say that it is outrageous. Does my right hon. Friend agree that appointing such a senior and high-profile civil servant to this post under such circumstances is questionable, and does he agree that what is of deep concern is the timing of this appointment and when she was approached? Where meetings were...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Employment: Young People ( 6 Mar 2023)

Suzanne Webb: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what steps his Department is taking to help young people find employment.

Work and Pensions: Topical Questions ( 6 Mar 2023)

Suzanne Webb: There are some notable and fantastic businesses in my constituency, including Argus Fire and Pegasus, which do a brilliant job in recruiting young adults and providing career opportunities. What more can the Department do to bridge the gap between employers and young adults and create that one-stop opportunity for 16-year-olds to find employment?

Justice: Youth Offending (21 Feb 2023)

Suzanne Webb: What steps he is taking through the criminal justice system to help young people avoid crime.

Justice: Youth Offending (21 Feb 2023)

Suzanne Webb: I am keen to see a more preventive approach to crime committed by young adults, particularly knife crime. In 2017, Ryan Passey, aged only 24, lost his life to a perpetrator with a knife, and we are still seeking justice. Will the Minister join me and the Passey family in exploring more ways of reaching out to young adults to ensure that carrying a knife does not become the norm? We all know...

Restoring Your Railway Fund — [Judith Cummins in the Chair] (24 Jan 2023)

Suzanne Webb: You don’t need wellies in Stourbridge.

Restoring Your Railway Fund — [Judith Cummins in the Chair] (24 Jan 2023)

Suzanne Webb: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mrs Cummins. I thank the hon. Member for Torbay (Kevin Foster) for securing the debate. I want to talk about my Stourbridge Dasher. I invite the Minister to Stourbridge to see for himself how important it will be to the community. The Dasher will be transformative. It will run along an old passenger line and extend the branch line, and...

Restoring Your Railway Fund — [Judith Cummins in the Chair] (24 Jan 2023)

Suzanne Webb: I could not agree more with my hon. Friend. I have been waiting some time for that £50,000. These are quick-win projects that do so much for communities. Getting that closer link with the Government, in particular on feasibility work, would save so much time further down the line, even if it were to prove that the project was not feasible. I thank her for that. I finish as I started, by...

Online Safety Bill: New Clause 11 - Notices to deal with terrorism content or CSEA content (or both) ( 5 Dec 2022)

Suzanne Webb: Talking of Christmas, would not the best Christmas present for lovely Zach be to enshrine new clause 53, that amazing amendment, as Zach’s law? Somehow we should formalise it as Zach’s law—that would be a brilliant Christmas present.

Online Safety Bill: New Clause 11 - Notices to deal with terrorism content or CSEA content (or both) ( 5 Dec 2022)

Suzanne Webb: This is the first time I have been able to speak in the Chamber for some time, due to a certain role I had that prevented me from speaking in here. It is an absolute honour and privilege, on my first outing in some time, to have the opportunity to speak specifically to new clause 53, which is Zach’s law. I am delighted and thrilled that the Government are supporting Zach’s law. I have...
