Duty Solicitor Scheme: Sport: Gambling Advertising — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (13 Mar 2024)

Jim Shannon: ...that watching those people encourages young people to find a way to gamble. Seeing their sporting heroes, such as ex-footballers, ex-football managers and so on promote gambling does not, in my humble opinion, do much for the cause of protecting young people against the dangers of gambling. It is also great that that applies not only to sporting events but to online gaming advertisements....

Northern Ireland (26 Feb 2024)

Jim Shannon: ...referred to the review of the Barnett consequential and a better way of doing that, so that all the people of Northern Ireland can access those moneys. Those are the facts of the case. Today’s Humble Address does not deal with them, but with an issue that is equally important to many people in Northern Ireland: our constitutional position. For many months, some in the Irish Government...

Business of the House (20 Apr 2023)

Jim Shannon: ...pastor and a tireless advocate for justice, human rights, and freedom of religion and belief. I had the privilege, which I remember well, of meeting him when he visited Parliament in 2018. He is a humble and courageous man. This sentence is a clear use of anti-terror legislation to silence a high-profile and vocal critic of a genocidal military regime. Will the Leader of the House join me...

Future of the Parole Board — [Mrs Sheryll Murray in the Chair] (18 Jan 2023)

Jim Shannon: ..., the pain of those who have lost loved ones for those reasons, and how that traumatises the family—that mum, dad, brother, sister, grandparent, uncle or aunt—forever. In many people’s humble opinion, those sorts of crimes do not warrant parole or release, as the hon. Member for Blackley and Broughton said in his introduction. Those crimes are of such magnitude, ferocity and...

Backbench Business (30 Jun 2022)

Jim Shannon: ...and Stocksbridge outlined. That leaves children confused for no other reason than the misunderstanding, and it makes them believe that they should be looking at their own gender issues. My humble opinion—I am putting it clearly on the record—is that children in primary schools are too young to be taught sex education at that level.

Ofsted: Accountability — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] ( 8 Jun 2022)

Jim Shannon: ...been feeling extreme pressure to perform as “perfect” in their profession. None of us is perfect. As you know, Mr Paisley, there is only one person who is perfect: the man above. We are just humble human beings with all our frailties and mistakes. The National Education Union has stated, “Able teachers, repeatedly assessed as ‘outstanding’, still have their preparation, teaching,...

Bees: Neonicotinoids — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] ( 2 Feb 2022)

Jim Shannon: ...as a child in the 1960s, in my aunt Isobel’s garden, marvelling at the wonder of honeycomb—where my love of honey came from—to becoming a man and understanding the vital role played by the humble bee, I have learned this lesson. In the absence of indisputable proof to the contrary, NNI pesticides are dangerous and harmful in the long term to our environment, food security and,...

Rebated Fuel Rules: Construction Industry (19 Jan 2022)

Jim Shannon: ...suitable alternative for most users, and that discretion must be given to construction businesses that simply cannot afford this change. I will conclude within the timescale you set, Mr Bone. In my humble opinion, my constituents need help. I look to the Minister for that. Northern Irish businesses have suffered all too much in recent years, from the horrific impact of the protocol to the...

Giving Every Baby the Best Start in Life ( 9 Nov 2021)

Jim Shannon: ...and these schemes over the next period can and will make a difference. The next debate is about a separate issue, but some of it will also refer to education and mental health issues. It is my humble opinion that funding should be allocated to such streams, which allow trained and interested volunteers to go into homes and help with practical issues. The hon. Member for East Worthing and...

National Insurance Contributions Bill (14 Jun 2021)

Jim Shannon: ...deal with their post-traumatic stress disorder through contact with horses. I believe that we can do the same thing here in a really important way. The point that this provision flags up for this humble man is the fact that the Government have managed to extend it to the whole of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and rightly so. I am truly grateful for that, because...

Covid-19 ( 2 Nov 2020)

Jim Shannon: ...of Prayer is for those of Christian faith and others to unite together and pray for the help we so desperately need. We need support for the NHS, businesses and the vulnerable, but we also need to humble ourselves and ask God to make the path straight as we work together to come through this covid winter ahead of us. We must trust God and we must pray for the help we need. I think every...

Offence of Sex for Rent (28 Nov 2018)

Jim Shannon: ...to bring about prosecutions and set the example that the hon. Member for Hove referred to in his introduction. As I was saying, how do we send a clear message? I look to the Minister and offer my humble opinion that we should strengthen the law so that no one can feel that this is a grey area any more, as the hon. Member for Bath mentioned in her intervention. Let us in this debate, with a...

Integrated Care — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] ( 6 Sep 2018)

Jim Shannon: ...do not trust to that, so they will be unsure about what will unfold. As a lay person, without the expertise that many on the Committee have—I bow to their knowledge and expertise—it is my humble opinion that we must do better in informing people how things are working now and how they can improve with changes, but understanding takes time and it is better to bring the public along,...

UK Bee Population (14 Nov 2017)

Jim Shannon: ...in Strabane and Clady in County Tyrone in the 1960s and 1970s. My aunt Isobel kept honey bees, and as a child I was taught about the fragile nature of the ecosystem and the crucial role that the humble bumblebee has to play in that, alongside the honey bee. There are 18 true species of bumblebee in the UK, many of which are threatened by habitat loss and other changes in the countryside...

[Jim Dobbin in the Chair] — HIV and AIDS (10 Dec 2013)

Jim Shannon: ...good, but African choirs have a different flavour, especially those with young people. Their zest for life and interest in others impresses me. Their Christian belief sustains them, and makes one humble. Just last month, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria confirmed £12.07 billion to fight those diseases. The bigger countries have pledged to address the epidemic...

Representation of the People (Members’ Job Share): HGV Road User Levy Bill (20 Nov 2012)

Jim Shannon: ...and their constituents will enjoy the vegetables and potatoes that come from my constituency, because 70% of our food is exported to the rest of the United Kingdom. So when Members sit down to the humble Comber spud on their Sundays, quite possibly it has come for my constituency. It is important, therefore, to have a viable freight industry. I have a couple of quick questions. The Bill...

Petition — Access to Homeopathic Medicines (17 Jul 2012)

Jim Shannon: ...Government. Choice on access to homeopathic medicines is paramount, and it must be retained and enshrined by Government. The petition requests that the status quo continue.

Opposition Day: [Unallotted Half Day] — Changing Perceptions of Northern Ireland ( 7 Mar 2012)

Jim Shannon: ...purchase superior pottery but to make it, as part of a tourism experience. We should do more of that sort of thing. We also have antiques shops, coffee and tea shops and superior places to eat. The humble Comber potato has been recognised by Europe, and in Strangford we can give people a meal that no one else can—starting with Portavogie prawns, the Comber potato, the Ards steak and...

Opposition Day: [Unallotted Half Day] — Changing Perceptions of Northern Ireland ( 7 Mar 2012)

Jim Shannon: ...events as we celebrate 60 years of our sovereign’s reign over us. It is good to have SDLP Members making a contribution to the debate; it is a pity that they could not do so when we discussed the humble address, as they were standing guard outside the door. Our Queen has provided stability and continuity through changing Governments, changing ideals and a changing world. She has...
