Planning Process: Probity (11 Jun 2020)

Mark Pawsey: Like the hon. Member for Vauxhall (Florence Eshalomi), I sat on my local planning committee and in my training I learned that only the most contentious of applications, or those of national significance, come before the Minister. We have an example on our doorstep, just over the road, where the 50-storey St George’s Tower was granted by John Prescott against the wishes of the local...

Rolls-Royce (Redundancies) (10 Jun 2020)

Mark Pawsey: The Minister is about to talk about the financial support that the Government are providing to the sector, but he has also spoken about the catastrophic fall in demand for both air travel and new aircraft. Could the Government bring forward any measures to stimulate demand for air travel?

Rolls-Royce (Redundancies) (10 Jun 2020)

Mark Pawsey: I thank the hon. Gentleman for bringing this debate to the House. It is important for my constituents in Anstey, where about a third of the workforce are in danger of losing their jobs. They have recently secured some new repair and overhaul work at the plant, to bring in an additional 30 to 50 jobs, but I understand that some of that work is now going to be offshored and carried out by...

International Development: Covid-19: African Union (10 Jun 2020)

Mark Pawsey: What discussions she has had with representatives of the member states of the African Union to help support the response to the covid-19 pandemic in Africa.

International Development: Covid-19: African Union (10 Jun 2020)

Mark Pawsey: The pandemic has shown us the vulnerability of not only the health systems in African countries, but their economies. The African Union has warned that nearly 20 million jobs may be lost. Has the Minister seen the excellent work of the African Development Bank as it focuses on the recovery and, in particular, focuses on the private sector as the key to employment and prosperity?

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Environment Protection: Taxation (10 Jun 2020)

Justice: Prisoner Rehabilitation and Education (9 Jun 2020)

Mark Pawsey: There are some great examples of rehabilitation programmes. One is at HMP Onley, where the charity Futures Unlocked and Rugby rotary club are collecting unwanted bicycles left at Rugby railway station, which are taken to the prison for refurbishment to provide purposeful work. Unfortunately, that project is temporarily suspended, as there has been the challenge of being able to collect the...

Corporate Insolvency and Governance Bill (3 Jun 2020)

Mark Pawsey: run my business on an annual basis, and would prepare my business forecast in October or November ready for January trading. I knew exactly the pattern of trade for my business, which remained remarkably stable year after year. I am incredibly sorry for businesses that have to go through that right now, as it must be extremely difficult. I wish to raise with the Minister concerns about...

Corporate Insolvency and Governance Bill (3 Jun 2020)

Mark Pawsey: That is a good point, and I hope that the Minister will consider that, because in many cases a contract has been entered into on the basis of a certain volume of business. Many businesses have contracted, so a purchasing company may not be buying the same volume. Does that provide the ability to keep the price at the original position? Price and volume go hand in hand, and there may be...

Corporate Insolvency and Governance Bill (3 Jun 2020)

Mark Pawsey: My hon. Friend makes a good point, and we must provide every support to business owners and directors at this challenging time, to allow them to make decisions that will enable their businesses to continue to survive.

Corporate Insolvency and Governance Bill (3 Jun 2020)

Mark Pawsey: Does my hon. Friend agree that part of the problem is the 30-day, 60-day, 90-day culture that has arisen in trading between companies? It is much easier now for companies to get an earlier payment, because so many payments are by electronic transfer, and the notion that the cheque has to be there when the guy delivers the goods no longer applies. If this measure moves trading in that...

Corporate Insolvency and Governance Bill (3 Jun 2020)

Mark Pawsey: Small businesses often find themselves dictated to by larger organisations, and the last thing we want is for small businesses to be put at a disadvantage by being compelled to supply when they are not capable or it is not in their interest to do so. Will the Secretary State reassure us that small businesses in particular will be protected by these provisions?

Covid-19: UK Border Health Measures (3 Jun 2020)

Mark Pawsey: Many businesses, especially those engaged in manufacturing, have a need to get a key worker on site quickly. That could be a UK employee returning from holiday not able to work from home, or an overseas specialist, such as a plant maintenance engineer, to keep a plant going. Will there be an exemption to support British business in circumstances such as these?

Treasury: Covid-19: Local Authorities and Devolved Administrations (18 May 2020)

Mark Pawsey: What fiscal steps he is taking to support local authorities during the covid-19 outbreak.

Treasury: Covid-19: Local Authorities and Devolved Administrations (18 May 2020)

Mark Pawsey: District councils are the level of local government closest to residents, and I know that they very much appreciated the support that the Government have provided, but responding to the virus has incurred both additional expenditure and a loss of revenue—they have had less income from things such as car parking and leisure services. How can the Minister ensure that district councils are...

Covid-19: DWP Update (4 May 2020)

Mark Pawsey: Rugby jobcentre plus was one of the first to go to full-service universal credit, and the staff there have been providing support to their colleagues in other offices, which is very important at a time when registrations are running at six times their usual level. I know the Secretary of State will join me in thanking all the staff for their hard work to make certain that the system runs...

Economic Update (17 Mar 2020)

Mark Pawsey: Businesses in the hospitality sector will appreciate the relief the Chancellor has given on business rates and the cash grants, but can I raise the question of suppliers to the sector, many of which have seen their sales fall off a cliff? In particular, there are those with short-dated products, such as Wood Farm micro-brewery in my constituency, which produces an excellent product but has...

Birmingham Commonwealth Games Bill [Lords] (9 Mar 2020)

Mark Pawsey: On the subject of specific sports, the Minister will share my pleasure that seven-a-side rugby is a fundamental part of the Commonwealth games, with games being played at the Coventry stadium. Does he agree that it will be great to see those players coming to the birthplace of the game during the tournament?

Flybe (5 Mar 2020)

Mark Pawsey: Flybe is regrettably the second failure of a UK-based business in this sector in just six months. What parallels does my hon. Friend see with the collapse of Thomas Cook last September, and what lessons have been learned to ensure that the sector is not affected again in the near future?

Business of the House (5 Mar 2020)

Mark Pawsey: Continuing with the issue of reducing crime, Warwickshire police, under the guidance of the Conservative police and crime commissioner, Philip Seccombe, has been successful in a bid to the Home Office to increase the proportion of officers equipped and trained in the use of Tasers from 20% to 28%. May we have a debate on how the use of such equipment can assist the police in keeping us safe?
