Business of the House (18 Oct 2018)

Chris Elmore: Many constituents have raised with me in recent days their dismay at the amount of tax being paid by online giants, with reports suggesting that Facebook will only be paying £7.4 million in tax. My constituents and the constituents of the Leader of the House all pay their tax, so can we have an urgent debate to ensure that these online giants start paying their taxes? Will she also press the...

Employment and Support Allowance Underpayments (18 Oct 2018)

Chris Elmore: The Minister’s apology is welcome, but it brings little comfort, as she will appreciate, to anyone who has been affected. At least she is acknowledging that things could be resolved. There has been much talk today across the House about whether this is our fault or the Government’s fault, and everything else. I make the point to the Minister that in September last year a UN report on the...

Bullying and Harassment: Cox Report (16 Oct 2018)

Chris Elmore: The Leader of the House will no doubt be aware that I have spoken publicly about being bullied for seven years as a teenager. I had two nervous breakdowns and one episode of hospitalisation as a result of bullying, so I say without making any kind of partisan point that I find it abhorrent that Conservative Members have used this report to pursue their own agenda and used the issue of...

Chris Elmore: One of the concerns being expressed by constituents about the universal credit roll-out is literacy levels and people’s unwillingness and fear about being able to complete forms.

Rail Review: Terms of Reference (11 Oct 2018)

Chris Elmore: The Secretary of State will be aware that the Welsh Government have recently awarded the new Wales franchise. He mentioned devolution in his statement. If lessons are to be learned from that far better, more customer and investment focused franchise, will the Williams review draw on them so that best practice can be shared between different franchises? It is important that we learn from...

Foreign Fighters and the Death Penalty (11 Oct 2018)

Chris Elmore: On 23 July, the Minister told the House: “On Guantanamo Bay, again our position has not changed. The UK Government’s long-standing position is that the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay should close.

Chris Elmore: The Minister will be aware of my ongoing campaign to close the Pencoed level crossing in my constituency.

I am meeting representatives of Network Rail again tomorrow, so can he say now, ahead of my...

Business Banking Fraud — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (9 Oct 2018)

Chris Elmore: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Robertson. I congratulate the hon. Member for Hazel Grove (Mr Wragg) on securing this debate. I have to say, however, that this is the fifth debate I have taken part in on this matter in my two and half years in the House. It is disappointing that we are here again. We are not making the progress that we should be making and that our...
