Labour MP for Ilford North (8 May 2015 – current)
Did you mean we streeting?
Wes Streeting: The strong message I have received from businesses in Ilford town centre and on high streets across my constituency is that action on business rates is needed to help high street businesses. Can the Secretary of State have a word with the Chancellor to make sure that that support is in place, so that when people return to their high streets, there are still some shops there to serve them?
Wes Streeting: It’s a one-way street.
Wes Streeting: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, if he will make an assessment of (a) the relationship between civil servants, advisers and ministers working at 10 Downing Street and Uber and (b) any potential effect on government policy of that relationship between May 2010 and July 2016.
Wes Streeting: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, how many meetings were held between civil servants, advisers or Ministers of 10 Downing Street and Uber between May 2010 and July 2016.
Wes Streeting: ...a similar situation in London, where the future of PCSOs is under threat. Were they to go, which is entirely possible—likely, indeed—the loss of intelligence and visible police presence on our streets would drive a coach and horses through traditional community-based policing. I am sorry to hear that that is the case in Merseyside. I am worried it will be the case in London too.
Wes Streeting: ...that with the fact that chief constables, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner, borough commanders and the Mayor of London all agree that funding and resources are the key challenge to tackling street crime and the other crimes about which my constituents complain?
Wes Streeting: ...Workers Union on its campaign to save Crown post offices. He correctly described the impact on staff, but I warn him, from our experience of the closure of the Crown post office on Barkingside High Street, that the Post Office often closes Crown post offices with no care or consideration for what will follow. That premise remains vacant and is an eyesore on Barkingside High Street. Many of...
Wes Streeting: I am grateful to the Minister for giving way on that point. One of the important functions that Great Ormond Street provided for Kaleigh Lau’s family was support when she was back in the UK. Immense pressures on Great Ormond Street at one point meant that a lack of access to beds and support led to a delay in her being admitted to the hospital. Will the Minister ask her officials to look at...
Wes Streeting: ...have got some brass neck, in one breath asking what the Mayor of London has done to tackle crime, and in the next breath trying to take credit for the 1,000 police officers being put on London’s streets thanks to action by London’s Mayor. Is it not the case that, even after this funding settlement announced today and the huge increases in charges for council tax payers that will...
Wes Streeting: Sophia Dar, a Muslim woman in my constituency, was attacked in broad daylight on Oxford Street, one of the busiest shopping streets in the world, let alone London, by a man who forcibly tried to remove her hijab from her head. Do not these judgments reinforce a sense that other people have the right to tell people of faith what they can and cannot wear and how they choose to practise or not...
Wes Streeting: I agree. Actually, in some cases, Uber cars use taxi ranks constantly on the streets of central London. There are real issues about how the existing law is enforced and there is a need to clarify it. In our report, we strongly supported those who made representations, particularly the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers and other trade unions, including Unite, for which...
Mr. STANLEY: In answer to the last question, a circular wes seent out on the 24th May and a copy of it is in the Library. The hon. Member for Chester-le-Street (Mr. Lawson) will find all the information he requires set out in the answers I have given.

Wes Streeting: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, if the Government will (a) sign the Safe Schools Declaration and (b) support implementation of that declaration in countries where armed conflict is taking place.
Wes Streeting: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what estimate he has made of the number of A&E departments likely to close in each region in each of the next five years.
Wes Streeting: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what estimate he has made of the number of maternity units likely to close in each region in each of the next five years.
