Written Ministerial Statements — Cabinet Office: Electoral Integrity Update (19 Jul 2018)

Lord Young of Cookham: The Minister for the Constitution has today made the following Written Ministerial Statement. Today, the Cabinet Office published its evaluation and it shows that Bromley, Gosport, Swindon, Watford and Woking delivered successful voter ID pilots. We know that because the evidence shows that the majority of voters who turned up to vote without ID returned later with ID without problem. When...

Written Ministerial Statements — Cabinet Office: Electoral Integrity Update (19 Jul 2018)

Chloe Smith: Today, the Cabinet Office published its evaluation and it shows that Bromley, Gosport, Swindon, Watford and Woking delivered successful voter ID pilots. We know that because the evidence shows that the majority of voters who turned up to vote without ID returned later with ID without problem. When surveyed, polling station staff overwhelmingly judged that they had been able to successfully...

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill: EU VAT area and pre-commencement requirements (16 Jul 2018)

Anna Soubry: ..., until Friday, when I went to the Toyota factory at Burnaston, which is just outside Derby. I would make it compulsory for every single Member to go to Toyota—they could go to another car manufacturer in Swindon, or to Nissan in Sunderland, as I did shortly after the EU referendum—so that they could begin to understand what a supply chain is, why it relies on frictionless...

Prime Minister: Engagements (27 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...his hedge fund to the eurozone, and the right hon. Member for Wokingham (John Redwood) is advising his clients to disinvest in Britain. Meanwhile, in the real world, Andrew, who works for Honda in Swindon, wrote to me—[Laughter.] I would not laugh if I were you. These are real people with real jobs and real concerns. Andrew writes: “I have seen nothing that gives me confidence...

Food Advertising (Protection of Children from Targeting): EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement (26 Jun 2018)

Barry Gardiner: ...economic partnership agreement. The relationship with Japan is, as many have said, of enormous importance, and we on the Labour Benches want to ensure that our future co-operation boosts trade and jobs in both our economies. Exports make up 30% of our national economic output, and we celebrate the jobs and the myriad other benefits that come from international trade. No country exemplifies...

Parking Charges: Chippenham (13 Jun 2018)

Michelle Donelan: ...are also key, but as Juliet Davenport, chief executive officer of Good Energy, one of the largest companies in Chippenham, said, this is making the “task harder”. It is something we simply do not need to do. When it is cheaper to get a return train ticket to Bath or Swindon than to park in Chippenham for the day, it is a no-brainer, and I know which most people would choose to...

May Adjournment (3 May 2018)

Jeremy Lefroy: ...proposed national health insurance system. The second thing I wish to talk about is General Electric, which is the largest private sector employer in my constituency. At the end of last year, it announced several hundred job losses, and the consultation on that is currently ongoing. It is a very serious situation. I praise General Electric and its predecessor, Alstom, for their investment...

Forensic Science Regulator Bill: Dagenham Diesel Engine Production (27 Apr 2018)

Claire Perry: ...so hard in these factories and have delivered a superb success for British manufacturing —and I join him in doing so. People who say we do not make things here should go and visit the auto plants in his constituency, or the plants in Swindon near mine, to see what the workforce has delivered. We want those jobs to be maintained. We want this investment to continue. Ultimately, we all...

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: ...trading partner. That involves 40% of our trade, and it means, as businesses tell us again and again, added delay and costs for manufacturers. Before the recess I had the pleasure of visiting Honda in Swindon with the Industry and Parliament Trust. It said that “outside a customs union, there is no such thing as a frictionless border.” Motor manufacturers will be subject to 10%...

Public Bill Committee: Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Enforcement notices: rectification and erasure of personal data etc (20 Mar 2018)

...last night by lawyers representing a number of those organisations that wanted to give us their views about clauses 168 and 169 was that successful journalism—whether The Daily Telegraph or the Swindon Advertiser—will often rely on excellent archives. If rich individuals are seeking to create a different truth and a different history, and to exercise their rights under the...

Statutory PHSE Education — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (6 Feb 2018)

Patricia Gibson: ...the hon. Member for South West Bedfordshire (Andrew Selous) mentioned; mental health, for which the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon) made a plea; first aid, whose importance the hon. Members for North Swindon (Justin Tomlinson), for Birmingham, Edgbaston (Preet Kaur Gill), and for Colchester (Will Quince) talked about; weapons awareness, which the hon. Member for Colchester also...

Personal Independence Payments — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (31 Jan 2018)

Kevan Jones: I congratulate my constituency neighbour, my hon. Friend the Member for North West Durham (Laura Pidcock), on the debate. The hon. Member for North Swindon (Justin Tomlinson) is right in what he says about how the system should operate, but that is not how it is operating in practice. In the Mind survey, 55% of those surveyed found that their PIP was either stopped or reduced. I also want...

Space Industry Bill [Lords] (15 Jan 2018)

Justin Tomlinson: ...across the House, pitching for why their constituencies should host future spaceports. [Interruption.] My right hon. Friend the Member for Wantage (Mr Vaizey) suggests that I am pitching for North Swindon. I am delighted to say that Swindon proudly hosts the UK Space Agency head office. We have the power; we are the strategic decision makers. I can assure hon. Members that all the key...

Disability Confident Scheme — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (10 Jan 2018)

Sarah Newton: I appreciate that intervention because I can clarify that that already exists. Access to Work can be used in all of those circumstances. Perhaps in the past not all of the job coaches in all of the jobcentres knew about that. We have made a massive investment in training our job coaches so that they are fully aware of all of these opportunities, and we have trained additional specialist...

Education: Early Years - Question for Short Debate (29 Nov 2017)

Lord Storey: ...this point I need to draw a distinction between childcare and education. In coalition, we were proud to push the introduction of free childcare and increase it to 30 hours to enable both parents to get jobs and contribute to the family economy. There are, of course, huge problems for childcare providers in delivering the childcare for the money that the Government are willing to provide,...

Rail Links: South-west England — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (24 Oct 2017)

Alex Chalk: ...and Devonport (Luke Pollard) on securing this debate. I think there is a consensus in the House that a strong train service in the south-west is vital for our thriving economy. It helps to create jobs and drives social mobility, but it would be wrong to assume that, notwithstanding all the excellent points that have been made about improving services to the south-west, the experience of...

Safeguarding Adults with Learning Disabilities — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (17 Oct 2017)

Jackie Doyle-Price: ...people with learning disabilities. They have potential and the ability to live independently, but all too often they have been parked. My hon. Friends the Members for Henley (John Howell) and for North Swindon (Justin Tomlinson) outlined examples of where, with some support, people with learning disabilities can lead very productive lives, but it requires support and investment. Sadly,...

Social Mobility — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (11 Jul 2017)

Robert Goodwill: ...a UTC, even if the abilities and aspirations of that child would be best served in a UTC. We have a successful UTC in my constituency, working with local employers who are keen to have people leaving the UTC job-ready. Indeed, many see apprenticeships as the fast route into employment without the debt and problems that a university education can bring. Throughout and after education, we...

Balancing the Public Finances — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (11 Jul 2017)

Mark Harper: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for raising that point. He knows—not everyone in the Chamber will—that Swindon is my home town. I actually did my A-levels at Swindon College, so I am particularly pleased to hear that that institution is still delivering opportunities. The opportunities that I got at a comprehensive school in Swindon and at Swindon College meant that I was the...

Universal Credit — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (19 Apr 2017)

Damian Hinds: ...debate. We have had a wide-ranging debate today. Let me be clear at the outset that the roll-out of universal credit continues to plan. As Members are aware, universal credit is now in every jobcentre in the country. The programme has just passed an important milestone of more than 1 million claims. The service has been deliberately rolled out in a steady way, as alluded to by some of my...
