Shellfish Aquaculture — [Julie Elliott in the Chair] (15 Mar 2023)

Daniel Zeichner: ..., unsurprisingly perhaps, is water quality and the Government’s continuing failure to clean up our water. I very much enjoyed the observations from my hon. Friend the Member for Huddersfield (Mr Sheerman). The issue, of course, goes way beyond aquaculture. I am sure the Minister will be disappointed to hear that I am not going to re-rehearse all the arguments now; they are, I am sure,...

Restoration and Renewal Client Board: Restoration of the Palace of Westminster: Sustainable Procurement (26 Jan 2023)

Andrea Leadsom: I often agree with the hon. Member for Huddersfield (Mr Sheerman), and this is no exception. I would like to ask my hon. Friend—a very good friend—what on earth we are doing. Why are we not out of this place or making plans to remove ourselves to somewhere else while restoration and renewal carries on? Are we ever going to do it, or are we just going to wait until asbestos, a sewage...

Improving Driver Safety (11 Jan 2023)

Barry Sheerman: My intervention is merely to make a plea. When I was a very young MP, we introduced the compulsory seatbelt legislation and banned children from being carried in cars without restraint. Does the Minister agree that we have been a wonderful exemplar of good practice, but it is slipping a bit? There is not as much interest in Parliament as there used to be in road safety, and our figures, after...

Points of Order (2 Nov 2022)

Barry Sheerman: this country. May we have an inquiry into what exactly happened in a recent debate in Westminster Hall, which was, it seems, taken over by anti-vax people? There was much shouting, screaming and carrying on. May we have an investigation into what happened when Westminster Hall was taken over by anti-vaxxers who made a spectacle of this House?

Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre (21 Jul 2022)

Barry Sheerman: ...the contract that had been let, all the materials will be brought in and the waste taken away by road, but it would be much better for the residents and for the people in London if it were all carried on the river. Will the Minister consider that?

Health and Social Care Leadership Review (8 Jun 2022)

Barry Sheerman: for management, I have had a long interest in management and good management. I congratulate him on having this review, because the NHS is a complex organisation. The Topol review that was carried out only two or three years ago showed a world of technology and change that is almost beyond belief for such a massive human organisation. I have not had the time to read the report yet,...

Points of Order (20 Apr 2022)

Barry Sheerman: ...Mr Speaker. I know that all of us in this House are fair game to the media, and that all of us enjoy many of the political commentators and sketch writers, but this morning’s edition of The Times carried a Quentin Letts article that I believe was sexist, misogynist and totally unacceptable. The way he described my hon. Friend the Member for West Ham (Ms Brown) was not about what she...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Special Educational Needs (1 Apr 2022)

Barry Sheerman: ...for Education, what steps his Department is taking to monitor and track the progress of assessments for children with special educational needs for the purposes of ensuring that assessments are (a) carried out in a timely manner and (b) effective in determining the needs of each child.

Parliamentary Works Sponsor Body: Restoration and Renewal: Impact on Roads and Air Quality (10 Mar 2022)

Barry Sheerman: ...what the hon. Member for Wellingborough (Mr Bone) said, I thought that John Bercow as Speaker made some really good, radical reforms in this place. The project of construction works that we will carry out in renewing this estate will be the biggest since its reconstruction after the second world war. Is my right hon. Friend aware that we could put much of the work on the river rather than...

Sue Gray Report (31 Jan 2022)

Barry Sheerman: .... I ask him really to look in the mirror, as he said this morning, and say, “Am I the man for this challenging time for our country abroad, at home and in every sense?” Has he the character to carry on and do that job properly?

Opposition Day: Randox Covid Contracts (17 Nov 2021)

Anneliese Dodds: ...that, on a matter of such national significance, there was not a single Conservative Member on the list to speak during this debate. As my hon. Friend the Member for Huddersfield (Mr Sheerman) damningly stated, this was the worst such situation that he had seen since he came into Parliament in 1979, when I was at the very tender age of just one year old. Let us recall the reasons why we...

COP26 and Air Pollution (2 Nov 2021)

Barry Sheerman: ...interest in road safety. I have campaigned on it for many years: I organised for seatbelt legislation as a young MP, and in my only successful private Member’s Bill, I banned children from being carried without restraint in cars. I am now chair of the Global Network for Road Safety Legislators, a World Health Organisation committee, and because of that, I know that if we take a...

Restoration and Renewal of the Palace of Westminster (20 May 2021)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: ...symbolism, the need to get on with things and the stonework. It is important that, under the Act, the Commission—I can assure the House that the Commission is very aware of this—is allowed to carry out repairs before the R and R body takes over. We have scaffolding up, so it seems sensible to try to do repairs where we can. There is no point in having scaffolding, as it currently is,...

ODA Budget (26 Apr 2021)

Barry Sheerman: the front with a massive aid package. Please can we have a vote in the House because this was not in the Conservative party manifesto at the last election and I do not think this aid cut would carry a majority?

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Water: Environmental Impact Assessment (4 Dec 2020)

Barry Sheerman: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what recent environmental assessments his Department has carried out on water quality in lakes and rivers throughout the UK.

Local Electricity (10 Jun 2020)

Peter Aldous: ...behind our backs. We currently have a system that prevents local generators from becoming local suppliers. This very short Bill would help remove that barrier. I thank Power for People, which has carried out most of the background research, campaigning and preparatory work ahead of this Bill. Today we face two great challenges: one immediate—the seismic economic shock created by the...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Palace of Westminster: Repairs and Maintenance (27 May 2020)

Barry Sheerman: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what estimate he has made of the potential level of disruption to road traffic in central London from construction work carried out on the Restoration and Renewal project of the Palace of Westminster.

Barry Sheerman: To ask the right hon. Member for East Hampshire, representing the Parliamentary Works Sponsor Body, whether an environmental impact assessment has been carried out for the Restoration and Renewal project on the Palace of Westminster.

Agriculture Bill: Import of agricultural goods after IP completion day (13 May 2020)

Tracey Crouch: As a parliamentary hedgehog champion, it is a pleasure to follow Huddersfield’s very own Mr Tiggy-Winkle, the hon. Member for Huddersfield (Mr Sheerman). I rise to speak to new clause 11 and amendment 37, tabled in my name and supported by colleagues, relating to the mandatory labelling of products with their farming method. Much of what we have heard already aims to put high animal...

Prevent Programme (22 Jan 2020)

Barry Sheerman: ...and in supporting Members of Parliament? I have recently had some really awful death threats against me and my staff, and I have received such a level of support—not just in being effective, carrying through an investigation and arresting two people, but in phoning up and giving support day to day. I know lots of Members have received that support, and I hope it can continue, but may I...
