Fairness at Work and Power in Communities (12 May 2022)

Navendu Mishra: ...and Allied Workers—conference, the retail workers’ trade union. Before I cover the issues some of the retail workers mentioned to me—I am a former retail worker myself—I want to thank my hon. Friend the Member for Nottingham North (Alex Norris) for all the work he has done on the “Freedom from Fear” campaign that USDAW has been running to protect shopworkers from verbal abuse,...

UK Diagnostics Industry and Covid-19 Recovery (10 May 2022)

Neale Hanvey: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that intervention. He makes some really important points. The first point I make—and I have previously paid tribute to the chair of the Vaccine Taskforce and continue to do so—is that there were excellent strategies for the control of infection in terms of barriers, mask wearing and the like. However, a fundamental part of infection control is that we cannot...

UK City of Culture: Southampton’s Bid (19 Apr 2022)

Caroline Nokes: I thank my hon. Friend for that comment. She is right. We do have a rich maritime history. The trading character of Southampton but also the Royal Navy heritage of Portsmouth and Gosport are key to this. As I was saying, when it comes to faith, it is not just about the mosques, the gurdwaras, the Christian churches, the Friends meeting house, the synagogue and the Vedic temple; there are also...

Health and Care Bill: Clause 14 - Establishment of integrated care boards (30 Mar 2022)

Liz Twist: ...“exposed to very high care costs”? It cannot be right that the northern regions and other areas will face that unfairness. The Government should reconsider the issue and come forward, as other hon. Members have said, with further discussions about how to resolve it. The proposal in the Bill is very different from that originally presented to the House on care costs. On carers, I agree...

Health and Care Bill: Clause 35 - Report on assessing and meeting workforce needs (30 Mar 2022)

Daisy Cooper:, which makes it all the more frustrating that the Government will not accept it. As I suspect the Minister knows, the Government’s objections just do not stand up to scrutiny. As the right hon. Member for South West Surrey (Jeremy Hunt) said, framework 15 simply sets out the number of staff the Government think they can afford, rather than the number of staff we actually need. I...

Women and Equalities: Investment for Businesses: Female and Minority Entrepreneurs (30 Mar 2022)

Ruth Edwards: A record 140,000 women started their own business in the last year, but research shows that only 1% of venture capital funding goes to businesses led by women. Will my hon. Friend agree to meet me and the #overbeingunderfunded campaign, run by my constituents Sarah King and Claire Dunn, to discuss how we can better use Government schemes such as the seed enterprise investment scheme to...

Physical Education (23 Mar 2022)

Jonathan Gullis: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, yet again, in Westminster Hall, Mr Hosie. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Eddisbury (Edward Timpson) for securing this important debate. I thought his speech, and that of the hon. Member for Batley and Spen (Kim Leadbeater), was fantastic in outlining the absolute reasons why physical education needs to be taken much more seriously,...

Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King’s Lynn (23 Mar 2022)

Edward Argar: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hosie, and to respond to this debate, which was secured by my hon. Friend the Member for North West Norfolk (James Wild), about the quality of care and the estate at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King’s Lynn. As my hon. Friend has already alluded to, this is an important subject for him. It is rare that I pass him in the corridors of this...

A5 in the Midlands: Improvements — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (23 Mar 2022)

Mike Kane: I will, Mr Hosie. I congratulate the hon. Member for Rugby (Mark Pawsey) on securing the debate about an issue on which he has campaigned for some time. It is of huge importance to his constituency, and to that of the hon. Member for Bosworth (Dr Evans)—what an impassioned plea he made! The hon. Gentleman was like some latter-day Henry Tudor on Bosworth field: ending the Plantagenet...

Midas Financial Solutions Collapse — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (22 Mar 2022)

Richard Thomson: It is a pleasure to serve once again under your chairmanship, Mr Stringer, and to follow the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon). I wondered at points if he was looking over my shoulder at some of the things I was planning to say, so I will just have to find a different way of expressing them. I commend the right hon. Member for Orkney and Shetland (Mr Carmichael) for his determination...

P&O Ferries and Employment Rights (21 Mar 2022)

Karl Turner: When I was on King George dock in Hull on Thursday, I met some of the new crew. They did not have a clue what they were doing there. They were told they were joining a brand-spanking-new vessel. They did not know they were there to take jobs. Does my hon. Friend want to say something about safety? Does he think that those new crew have been trained sufficiently—for example, in lifeboat...

Business of the House (17 Mar 2022)

Bob Blackman: ...delivered unharmed. The other is about Lord Krishna, whose face turns blue after being poisoned, and therefore he throws colours around to encourage people not to see that he is blue. Will my right hon. Friend join me in wishing Hindus across the world “Holi hai!”?

Cost of Living Increases (16 Mar 2022)

Chris Stephens: It is a pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Airdrie and Shotts (Ms Qaisar), who is a good friend and comrade. When she talked about loan sharks, it reminded me of the misleading adverts that we see on social media from debt companies, which I do regard as loan sharks, as they force people into trust deeds and other such things. I know the Minister used to be in the Treasury, so...

In-work Poverty — [Christina Rees in the Chair] (16 Mar 2022)

Chris Stephens: It will increase in-work poverty. As the hon. Gentleman will know, the Government tried to close half the jobcentres in the city of Glasgow. People there are having to spend more money and go further in order to get to a jobcentre to see whether they can get better work. As we have a Minister from the Department for Work and Pensions in front of us, I want to point out that a number of people...

Commonwealth Day — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (15 Mar 2022)

Ian Liddell-Grainger: I would like thank my hon. Friend on three counts: first, for his courtesy in intervening, as he raises a very important question; secondly, for all the work he has done on behalf of the Commonwealth; and thirdly for the overseas trips he has undertaken very nobly. The point my hon. Friend makes is absolutely right. There are hiccups; in any family, there will be hiccups. Hopefully this year...

Executions in Saudi Arabia (14 Mar 2022)

Mike Kane: Pope Francis recently said that the death penalty is an attack on the inviolability and dignity of the human person, and is inadmissible in all cases. Following on from what the right hon. Member for Beckenham (Bob Stewart) said, 1.7 million Catholics live in Saudi Arabia—8% of the population. King Salman has a cordial relationship with the Church, and the Crown Prince recently visited...

International Women’s Day (10 Mar 2022)

Ruth Edwards: I thank my right hon. Friend the Member for Basingstoke (Mrs Miller) for securing this debate, which is always moving, inspiring and wide-ranging. We have quite rightly reflected on the horror that Putin’s war in Ukraine is inflicting on women there, which was demonstrated in last night’s barbaric bombing of a maternity hospital. The haunting speech of the hon. Member for Birmingham,...

Welsh Affairs (3 Mar 2022)

Gerald Jones: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Caerphilly (Wayne David) for securing and leading this debate. His recent announcement that he would be standing down at the next election took some of us by surprise, and I hope he knows that his wisdom, his counsel and his huge contribution will be missed in this place. I thank the Backbench Business Committee for granting this debate, and I thank all...

Support for Ukraine and Countering Threats from Russia (2 Mar 2022)

David Lammy: This has been a very good debate to be part of this afternoon. Martin Luther King once said: “Those who love peace must learn to organise as effectively as those who love war.” That statement has been ringing in my ears in recent days. Vladimir Putin has been organising for this illegal war for years. Our world-leading intelligence capability predicted the invasion weeks before it...

Ukraine (1 Mar 2022)

James Wild: ...and Ukrainian national, is very concerned about her mother and sister in Kyiv, who she told me this morning are trying to get a train to safety. Can I welcome the confirmation that my right hon. Friend has given today that, God willing they make it, this family can be reunited in King’s Lynn?
