Wales: Regional Development Funding (7 May 2019)

Chris Elmore: My hon. Friend is making a very good point about asking Ministers. I have asked Ministers from the Treasury, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, and the Wales Office. All of my questions have fallen on deaf ears, and when I have queried why the consultation is delayed, no Minister seems to know. My concern is that there is a question of trust: the Government have...

Business of the House: World Immunisation Week (2 May 2019)

Chris Elmore: Does my hon. Friend agree that the Government’s recently published online harms consultation needs to include the beefing up of this, and that Facebook and others must be held responsible if they allow such anti-immunisation scare stories to be included on their platforms, because, as we are seeing in America, this is risking and costing lives?

Children’S Funeral Fund (1 May 2019)

Chris Elmore: I do not doubt for one second the Minister’s sincerity, or indeed that of the Under-Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, the hon. Member for Colchester (Will Quince). The Minister has mentioned the summer and says he is having weekly meetings, but can he set out a more definitive timetable for when this will be implemented? “Summer” could be any time from June to September. It...

Environment and Climate Change (1 May 2019)

Chris Elmore: The climate change debate has moved on rapidly in recent months, and let us all agree on one thing: we are no longer here to debate whether this problem is happening. Look at what is happening to our planet: from the scorching hot week we had in February this year to the blistering hot summer last year, our climate is changing even in the UK before our very eyes, but while these ice-lolly...

Social Media and Health (30 Apr 2019)

Chris Elmore: I welcome the Secretary of State’s statement and the consultation. I am grateful to my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Health and the suicide prevention Minister for taking part in the launch of my all-party parliamentary group report on new filters and the impact of social media on young people’s mental health. I am also grateful to the Secretary of State for agreeing to...

Backbench Business: Post Office Network — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (25 Apr 2019)

Chris Elmore: I congratulate the hon. Lady most sincerely on securing this important debate. Part of the problem in my constituency is that over the past year we have had temporary closures in Ogmore Vale, Aberkenfig and the community of Bettws. Those temporary closures are ongoing, with one of them nearing a year. Post offices provide banking services as well as the postal service, and they are often...

Business of the House (25 Apr 2019)

Chris Elmore: Will the Leader of the House find time for a debate on foodbanks? Today, the Trussell Trust announced that Wales has received more than 100,000 referrals to foodbanks over the last year and there has been a 43% rise in food parcels in the last five years. A third of all referrals have been down to benefit payments coming in late, and 51% of all referrals were made because of a delay in the...

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Government Departments: Real Living Wage (24 Apr 2019)

Chris Elmore: The reality is that the Government’s living wage is not the living wage set by the Living Wage Commission, but putting that aside, can the Minister set out what representations he has made to the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority to ensure that Members of this House can become living wage employers? My understanding is that it will not let us do that.

Prime Minister: Engagements (24 Apr 2019)

Chris Elmore: The Government continue to chronically underfund the Welsh railway network with planned spending running at 6% despite its having 11% of the network. Will the Minister set out when the Government will start investing in Welsh railway infrastructure and give Welsh commuters the investment that they deserve?

Backbench Business: Retail Crime — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (11 Apr 2019)

Victoria Atkins: ...everyone with an interest to respond to the call for evidence, including shop staff who have been directly affected by violence and abuse at work. Interestingly, the hon. Member for Ogmore (Chris Elmore), who is sadly no longer in his place—he may be in the main Chamber—made a wider point about courtesy and the use of language. I am sure that we all consider that an important point...

Business of the House (11 Apr 2019)

Chris Elmore: May we have a debate about digital inclusion—not just about broadband access but about mobile phone signal and basic television services? That is still a huge issue in many parts of the country, including in my constituency, where some communities and villages do not even get a basic mobile phone signal. I would be grateful to the Leader of the House if she found some time for a debate...

Attorney General: Social Media (11 Apr 2019)

Chris Elmore: Will the Solicitor General set out what work he is doing with Twitter, Facebook, Google and other online platforms, which is mainly where people take the law into their own hands and assume that they know what they are talking about when they refer to cases and other issues?

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Social Media (11 Apr 2019)

Chris Elmore: To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, what steps he is taking to ensure technology manufacturers are differentiated from social media companies in the online harms White Paper.

LGBT Rights: Brunei (10 Apr 2019)

Chris Elmore: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this debate. Last November, I was privileged to visit Rwanda with the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association, where there are also questions about LGBT legislative equality. Surely the role of the British Government, and the Foreign Office in particular, is to provide challenge within the Commonwealth and to promote the idea that if a country is a...

Voter Id Pilots (10 Apr 2019)

Chris Elmore: The Minister will not be surprised that I do not share her enthusiasm for this new system. Will she look to what the Welsh Government are doing to expand the franchise and the inclusivity of voting, including consulting on e-voting? Will she consider that in future? If we are to make voting more accessible and expand the ways that people are able to vote, we need to learn from good practice....

British Steel Pension Scheme: Transfers — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (10 Apr 2019)

Chris Elmore: I pay tribute to my hon. Friend for securing this debate and leading on this issue, as he has now for several years. On how the FCA now informs steelworkers, does he agree that part of the problem is that lots of steelworkers will simply not know that this has happened and will not understand that they have received bad advice? Given that these are complicated issues, as he has mentioned,...

Sittings in Westminster Hall: Mental Health Support: Young People (9 Apr 2019)

Jackie Doyle-Price: .... That is something that we are very much tackling as part of the Prime Minister’s summit, which took place just last week. I have been very pleased to work with the hon. Member for Ogmore (Chris Elmore) on this, and I welcome his all-party parliamentary group’s report on the impact of social media. The impact of social media brings with it a whole new set of pressures on children’s...
