Shared Prosperity Fund — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (14 May 2019)

Dan Jarvis: ...Government over the past year. However, it is right that today we take the opportunity to lead a national debate that seeks to heal the divisions in our country—divisions that were laid bare by Brexit but whose seeds were sown long before. Today is an opportunity to look at an important issue through the eyes of our communities, rather than through the prism of party politics. The...

Shared Prosperity Fund — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (14 May 2019)

Dan Jarvis: ...that I hoped we would see this debate through the eyes of our communities and what is in their best interest, not through the prism of party politics. There will be a range of different views about Brexit and what it may or may not mean for our country, but I hope there is a unanimity of view on wanting to do the best for our country, whatever happens. We want to invest money wisely and...

Shared Prosperity Fund — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (14 May 2019)

Dan Jarvis: ...will be working on the development of the fund. On that basis, we have not been sitting idly by, waiting to be asked. Indeed, I commend the work of the all-party parliamentary group on post-Brexit funding, and the analysis and contributions of colleagues in local and regional government who have been addressing these issues. I have set out my four guiding principles on which I think the...

Local Government Funding — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (27 Mar 2019)

Dan Jarvis: critical to the communities that they are there to serve. I was out on the doorstep in Barnsley at the weekend talking to my constituents and, although some of them wanted to talk about Brexit—completely understandably —many of them wanted to talk about other things, including bins, potholes, parking, antisocial behaviour and, of course, housing. Those are incredibly important...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (6 Mar 2019)

Dan Jarvis: Amidst the noise of the Brexit debate, there is a real risk that we lose sight of the reasons why so many people voted to leave in the first place. I think that if we want to restore faith and trust, we need to devolve more political decision making away from Whitehall and closer to the people who will be affected by those decisions. Following on from the very constructive meeting that took...

Regional Transport Infrastructure — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (5 Mar 2019)

Dan Jarvis: ...for Britain to leave the European Union. I do not claim to hold all the answers as to why they did that—none of us should—because there is no overarching or unifying theory that can explain the Brexit vote. The referendum campaign became about immigration, national sovereignty, our international relationships and trade, but it was also about how well our democracy and our politics had...

Regional Transport Infrastructure — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (5 Mar 2019)

Dan Jarvis: ..., creating opportunities where we can and connecting people to them. That is how we give people a stake in their communities and in our country. As we prepare for the future and life beyond the Brexit debate, all our regions and nations must be given the very best opportunity to contribute to our national prosperity. If we do not invest in regional transport infrastructure, we will not...

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Affordable Housing: South Yorkshire (6 Feb 2019)

Dan Jarvis: ..., with reference to the press announcement entitled, Brokenshire unveils £500 million affordable homes funding boost, how much of the £56.5 million that will be given to councils to support Brexit preparations will be allocated to (a) councils in the Sheffield City Region and (b) Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council.

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (1 Nov 2018)

Dan Jarvis: ...That is a tragedy. It is also a waste of the ingenuity and potential of so many people. Along with many others, I am working to grow our economy and connect our talented people to opportunity. With Brexit on the near horizon, in the Sheffield city region, this work is taking shape, and we are making progress. A story is emerging in south Yorkshire that shows that ours is a region that is...

Yorkshire Devolution (9 Jan 2018)

Dan Jarvis: ..., the status quo is not delivering. People are disillusioned, and they have a right to feel that way. Just over 18 months ago, the people of Barnsley and Doncaster overwhelmingly voted for Brexit, in part because they felt powerless and in part because they felt tired—tired of being left behind and powerless to do anything about it. It is not hard to see why. Not only do the people of...

Yorkshire Devolution (9 Jan 2018)

Dan Jarvis: ...other more affluent parts of the country. I do not begrudge any other part of the country its affluence, but I do understand why people in our region are disillusioned and angry. That desire for Brexit, and the need for devolution, are symptoms of the same malaise. I believe that if we are to make Britain healthy again and heal its divisions, we need a new economic and political settlement...

Child Poverty in the Uk (Target for Reduction) Bill (3 Feb 2017)

Dan Jarvis: ...clear commitment to do right by those children, because feelings of concern and insecurity about our future direction as a country are becoming increasingly commonplace. That is not just about the Brexit debate; it extends to the fundamental question of what we are prepared to tolerate as a society. Ipsos MORI regularly surveys the public to ask about the top issues facing Britain. One in...

Child Poverty in the Uk (Target for Reduction) Bill (3 Feb 2017)

Dan Jarvis: ...would follow in peacetime under Clement Attlee. Today, at a moment of greater uncertainty for our country than at any time since, ending poverty once again deserves to be an unrelenting effort. Brexit should not be used as an excuse for inaction; instead it should provide the reason for a new approach. Britain’s place in the world of tomorrow will be brighter if we focus on child poverty...
