Exiting the European Union: Supply of Medicines: No Deal (5 Sep 2019)

Diana R. Johnson: ...devices they need as quickly as possible and with certainty. Dr Buscombe from the British Nuclear Medicine Society says that the system for delivering radioactive isotopes in the event of a no-deal Brexit is “fragile”. What does the Secretary of State say to patients who are concerned to hear that?

Exiting the European Union: No Deal: Economic Impact (27 Jun 2019)

Diana R. Johnson: Beckie Hart, the director of Yorkshire and the Humber CBI, said recently that many firms are unaware that it is not just their relationship with EU customers that is at risk from a no-deal Brexit, but relationships across the globe. Tonight, Hull MPs and the shadow Brexit Secretary are meeting the Hull and Humber chamber of commerce to discuss our region’s economic prospects under Brexit....

Government Mandate for the NHS (25 Apr 2019)

Diana R. Johnson: I am really not following the Minister on why this mandate has not been published. I wonder whether it is because of the paralysis in Government caused by the Brexit shambles or because, as the Health Service Journal reports, the Secretary of State is focused on an anticipated leadership race and his thoughts are elsewhere.

International Trade: Free Trade Agreements: NHS/Public Services (25 Apr 2019)

Diana R. Johnson: I am pleased that the Secretary of State has made those comments, and I am sure we can all agree that, whatever happens with Brexit, our country must not be held to ransom by multinational corporate interests over the future of the NHS and other public services, so can the Secretary of State give a watertight guarantee that we will not see any trade deals that would drive up the costs of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (27 Mar 2019)

Diana R. Johnson: No matter what happens with Brexit, I am sure we all agree that we need a new industrial renaissance in the north. With the northern powerhouse and Yorkshire devolution stalling, is it not about time that we gave the same priority and attention to the Humber docklands as has been given to the London docklands for the last 40 years?

Uk’S Withdrawal from the EU (27 Feb 2019)

Diana R. Johnson: One thing I have noticed in the whole debate about Brexit is that small groups with very loud voices tend to dominate, and this afternoon I had a message from a constituent who said: “Where did it say ‘leave with a deal’ on the referendum paper; it never did—did it?” There are small groups who think no deal is the way forward but the vast majority of my constituents, many of them...

Education Committee: Antisocial Behaviour (7 Feb 2019)

Diana R. Johnson: ...become one of the biggest issues in my constituency. It is absolutely vital that Parliament continues to debate these bread-and-butter issues when our time seems to be squeezed solely on discussing Brexit. Her Majesty’s inspectorate of constabulary and the fire service found in 2018 that 40% of respondents nationally think that crime and antisocial behaviour is a problem in their area,...

Education Committee: Antisocial Behaviour (7 Feb 2019)

Diana R. Johnson: ...together to stop youths throwing stones at buses in Orchard Park or to tackle aggressive begging in Newland Avenue on my patch, how will voters believe that we can sort out the big challenge of Brexit?

Business of the House (7 Feb 2019)

Diana R. Johnson: ...reassured by the Leader of the House saying that that was not the case. Will she, however, ensure that sufficient time is made available for Members to debate these important issues? We know that Brexit is important, but these other issues that we want to debate are important as well.

HMRC Estate Transformation (29 Jan 2019)

Diana R. Johnson: Given that a no-deal Brexit is likely to increase massively the number of customs declarations made at ports such as Hull by those transporting goods through them, and given that that is combined with the Department for Transport’s general lack of preparedness when it comes to our ports, how can the Minister justify taking these decisions at this point?

Nuclear Update: Point of Order (17 Jan 2019)

Diana R. Johnson: ...for Backbench Business Committee debates. I know that there are two taking place today, but I am not aware of any additional days for such debates after that. I know we are very pressed because of Brexit, but is there anything you can do to put pressure on the Government to make sure that time is allocated for us to debate these issues of real importance to our constituents?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (17 Jan 2019)

Diana R. Johnson: ...owners to travel between EU countries with their animals with minimal forward planning. That is especially important for guide dog owners. But the Government are now saying that, under a no-deal Brexit, guide dog owners will have to plan their travel at least four months in advance. This is totally unacceptable, so what are the Government doing to ensure that assistance dog owners do not...

Leaving the EU (14 Jan 2019)

Diana R. Johnson: ...constituents who have contacted me have asked me to vote down the Prime Minister’s deal—and that includes many leavers. Does the Prime Minister think that is because they no longer support Brexit, or because they want the promises made during the leave campaign to be delivered and her deal does not do that?

Business of the House: [3rd Allotted Day] (6 Dec 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: ...promises were attractive. Why not vote for £350 million pounds a week extra for our NHS, the promised billions for our ailing railways or a renewed fishing industry? My near neighbour and a former Brexit secretary, the right hon. Member for Haltemprice and Howden (Mr Davis), promised: “There will be no downside to Brexit, only a considerable upside.” However, having a simplistic...

Exiting the European Union: Immigration White Paper (6 Dec 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: ...of Government that we will not have that White Paper before we vote next Tuesday? Can the Secretary of State say what he believes will happen with the crisis in our social care workforce once Brexit happens?

Leaving the EU (26 Nov 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: Why is the £20 billion for the NHS that has already been announced now being spun as an additional £394 million a week Brexit dividend for the NHS, when we all know that the savings from membership of the EU will be outweighed by the additional costs that we will have to pay?

June European Council (2 Jul 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: At the weekend, Simon Stevens said that the NHS is now planning explicitly for a no deal Brexit scenario so that vital medical supplies can still get through. Will the Prime Minister explain how much that is costing the NHS and whether the money is coming out of the budget for treating patients?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Common Fisheries Policy (26 Apr 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: The Secretary of State has admitted that the Government accepted a “sub-optimal outcome” for the UK’s fishing industry in the Brexit negotiations, although I think that people in Hull would call it something else. Can the Minister guarantee that, at the end of the transition period, our fishing rights will not be traded away for some other political or economic priority?

Homelessness: Department for Transport (27 Feb 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: ...the case for a bolder, more ambitious approach to transport spending that leaves no citizen, no nation and, crucially, no region behind, and that will boost economic efficiency and growth post Brexit. The international evidence paints a stark and disappointing picture. Britain’s infrastructure spending is the lowest of any developed country in the OECD. The inequality between our...

Leaving the Eu: Economic Analysis (30 Jan 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: If work has been done on the regional impact of different Brexit scenarios, is not it in the national interest for regional devolved bodies and local councils to have this information, so that they can make appropriate plans for the future?
