Members Sworn (17 Dec 2019)

Lindsay Hoyle: ...or affirm, they must not sit during any debate or vote in any Division of the House, and they will not receive any salary—a big temptation. The arrangements for swearing in are as set out in the Chamber information sheet and a guidance note is also available from the Table Office and the Vote Office. I propose to call first the Father of the House, then members of the Cabinet, then...

Valedictory Debate (5 Nov 2019)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: It is an honour to follow the hon. Member for Truro and Falmouth (Sarah Newton), with whom I worked well when she was a Minister. She has a strong interest in Durham. Although he is not in his place, I wish to pay tribute to the right hon. Member for North East Bedfordshire (Alistair Burt), who was a brilliant and dedicated Minister, and this House will really feel his loss. I wish at the...

Grenfell Tower Inquiry: Phase 1 Report - Motion to Take Note (31 Oct 2019)

Lord Hendy: ...between the two. I also thank the amazing staff of the House who have been unfailingly helpful to me in giving me advice, telling me where to go and so forth. It was not quite the same in East Ham magistrates’ court when I started my practice at the Bar many decades ago. However, my life in crime was cut short because I spent the past 42 years in the practice of labour law—the law of...

Child Maintenance Service: Payment Recovery from Absent Parents (2 Oct 2019)

Justin Tomlinson: ...the regulations that we passed to strengthen our ability to investigate and enforce. Hon. Members have rightly raised areas where enforcement has not been quick enough.

Uk Shared Prosperity Fund: British House Building Industry (5 Sep 2019)

Alex Cunningham: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Mitcham and Morden (Siobhain McDonagh) for securing the debate through the Backbench Business Committee. She is right to highlight these issues. Surely, in this world of inequality, individuals should not be lining their own pockets with millions of pounds in bonuses taken from taxpayers’ money. Our focus needs to be on all our people, not just the...

Summer Adjournment (25 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Quin: ...in her speech yesterday that our primary role in this place is to do the best to look after our constituents. I thought that point was encapsulated very well by the hon. Member for Glasgow North East (Mr Sweeney), but it was apparent in all the passionate contributions made this afternoon by all the Members present. I am just sorry, Madam Deputy Speaker, that my winding up cannot possibly...

Kew Gardens (Leases) (No. 3) Bill [Lords]: Youth Services (24 Jul 2019)

Mims Davies: ...do not want to give away secrets at the Dispatch Box, but I very much encouraged it to do so, so I am delighted that it has undertaken that. As we have seen from the passionate speeches around the Chamber, there is absolutely a need to consider this report. The message from this debate is that we need somewhere to go in talking about youth work and our young people. We need to offer the...

Toeic: Overseas Students (24 Jul 2019)

Afzal Khan: I thank my right hon. Friend the Member for East Ham (Stephen Timms) for securing this urgent question and making a powerful case. His work and commitment on this issue has been tremendous. The TOEIC scandal is another example of the Government’s hostile environment, plunging thousands of lives into uncertainty. This shameful episode, which started in 2014, has led to thousands of...

Persecution of Christians Overseas (18 Jul 2019)

Jim Shannon: ...of Christians there with respect to education and qualifications, job opportunities, the right to worship and the right to convert. In fact, we are well aware of the issues across the whole middle east. In Syria, 1.5 million Christians have left their country. There are only a quarter of a million Christians left in Iraq and fewer than 100,000 in Iran. In Colombia, Christian peasant...

Sale of New Petrol and Diesel Cars and Vans: Assisted Dying (4 Jul 2019)

Edward Argar: With your permission, Mr Deputy Speaker, I will endeavour to conclude my speech a few minutes before 5 o’clock to allow the hon. Member for Grantham and Stamford (Nick Boles) a few minutes in which to respond, if he wishes to do so. It is rare for a Private Member’s Bill Friday to be one of the most memorable occasions in the House, but the debate that took place in 2015 on a private...

Petition - Closure of Heywood Crown Post Office: Parental Involvement in Teaching: Equality Act (25 Jun 2019)

Nick Gibb: This has been an extraordinary Adjournment debate and, Mr Speaker, worth your waiting 10 years in the Chair to hear, I would argue. There were powerful speeches by the hon. Members for Birmingham, Erdington (Jack Dromey), for Cardiff South and Penarth (Stephen Doughty), for West Dunbartonshire (Martin Docherty-Hughes), and for Rhondda (Chris Bryant), with a powerful and moving speech by the...

History Curriculum: Migration — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (18 Jun 2019)

Mike Kane: ...(Chris Evans) made powerful points about how the mining community of south Wales has influenced North and South America, but we have to remember how the South Americans have also influenced West Ham. The Chilean, Manuel Pellegrini, and the Argentinian, Pablo Zabaleta, led West Ham to one of its best seasons in many a year, although I would say they were mainly immigrants from Manchester...

Inequality and Social Mobility (12 Jun 2019)

Nadhim Zahawi: I welcome the opportunity to respond on behalf of the Government. I was sorry to hear the hon. Member for West Ham (Lyn Brown) accuse the Government of not responding to the report of the UN rapporteur. That is not true; they have responded. I was also sorry to hear her exploit Allie, an 18-year-old, in an attempt to weaponise this issue, when we have heard really thoughtful contributions...

Social Mobility: Treasury Reform — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (11 Jun 2019)

Jesse Norman: ...PISA rankings in 2016. She can check that; it is an objective fact, not a matter for debate. She is entitled to her views, but not to the facts. The Opposition spokesperson, the hon. Member for East Ham—I apologise, I mean the hon. Member for West Ham (Lyn Brown); I am sure many footballers will not thank me for that. The hon. Lady mentioned table tennis tables; having been a director...

International Education Strategy (22 May 2019)

Judith Cummins: .... I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for West Bromwich West (Mr Bailey) on securing this important debate. I thank all hon. Members who spoke, including my right hon.

International student numbers have increased year on year, and the Government have been quick to...

Secondary School Standards: East Cleveland: Intimidation in Public Life — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (21 May 2019)

Cat Smith: ...job and sort of expected. I did not, however, expect a tiny baby to be on the receiving end of such abuse, so I thank the hon. Gentleman for securing this debate today. I know he will continue to champion this issue until we rid ourselves of this scourge and the way that political debate has gone in this country. Intimidation, including death threats, criminal damage, sexism, racism,...

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Buildings: Insulation (20 May 2019)

Kit Malthouse: ...over 18 metres tall or publicly-owned buildings. As of 30 April there are 102 parliamentary constituencies in England where such buildings were identified, of which 84 constituencies have at least one such building yet to be remediated within their boundaries. Constituencies with fewer than ten high-rise residential buildings (regardless of whether or not they have cladding) have been...
