Medicines and Medical Devices Safety Review (21 Feb 2018)

Mark Pawsey: I welcome today’s announcement, which I am sure will also be welcomed by my constituent who had surgical mesh implanted in 2008 during a hysterectomy, and, significantly, without her knowledge or consent, which has led her to suffer severe distress and significant pain. When she raised that with her doctors, she was told it was all in her mind and she was imagining it, and she believes...

Coventry City Football Club (21 Feb 2018)

Mark Pawsey: What is exceptional about the Coventry situation is how there has been a falling out between the club and its supporters. Coventry is a big city, with 300,000 residents. A lot of people are excited by football, but the football club under its current ownership does not seem to have motivated those people. They are more motivated to support the club when it plays away than when it plays at...

Coventry City Football Club (21 Feb 2018)

Mark Pawsey: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this very important debate, which is of interest to many of my constituents, who are naturally Coventry City supporters. He is talking about the parties involved, one of which is Wasps rugby club, which acquired the stadium a while ago. Does he agree that it is incumbent on Wasps to do what it can, as it is doing, to provide a home for Coventry City...

Cabinet Office and Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Topical Questions (21 Feb 2018)

Mark Pawsey: Too few of our small businesses apply to sell their goods to Government because they are worried about the bureaucracy involved. What reassurance can the Minister give them and, specifically, what feedback is available to them when they do so?

Palestinian Children and Israeli Military Detention: A5 Upgrade (7 Feb 2018)

Mark Pawsey: My hon. Friend is making an important point about ensuring we get infrastructure before development takes place. The A5 acts as a boundary between his constituency and mine. In the same way that his villages are affected, people from Pailton, Monks Kirby, Churchover, Clifton and Newton are in many cases reluctant to go on to the A5 because of the large number of HGVs using it as a consequence...

Palestinian Children and Israeli Military Detention: A5 Upgrade (7 Feb 2018)

Mark Pawsey: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this timely debate. Right now, there are 90-minute delays on the M6 between junction 1 at Rugby and junction 3 at Nuneaton, where two out of three lanes are closed for repairs to an expansion joint. Highways England is advising drivers to use other routes. In this context, the other main route is the A5, which is one of the reasons why we need the...

Taylor Review (7 Feb 2018)

Mark Pawsey: Is it not the case that the Government asked Matthew Taylor to undertake a report, Matthew Taylor brought forward some recommendations and the Government are getting on with implementing what Matthew Taylor asked the Government to do?

Capita: Business of the House (1 Feb 2018)

Mark Pawsey: Next Tuesday is Safer Internet Day, and on Monday I will be visiting Eastlands Primary School in my constituency to meet its eCadets and to find out more about their role in promoting safe internet use among their fellow pupils. There is real concern about what is happening online, so could we have a debate to consider what measures we can take to keep our young people safe?

Capita (1 Feb 2018)

Mark Pawsey: Is not the Government’s role to continue to act as a prudent customer and to continue to monitor their suppliers and the services provided? Right now, the best thing that the Government can do is to allow the company to get on with its plans to restructure its business.

Exiting the European Union: International Business Community (1 Feb 2018)

Mark Pawsey: What steps he is taking to ensure the Government engage with the international business community during negotiations for the UK to leave the EU.

Exiting the European Union: International Business Community (1 Feb 2018)

Mark Pawsey: Coming from Coventry, which is the home of the UK motor industry, I have been delighted by the industry’s resurgence in recent years. Last year, however, it did see a fall in output of 3%, which was attributed by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders to the need for clarity on Brexit transition. Given the importance of car manufacturing and its supply chain to the west midlands...

Restoration and Renewal (Report of the Joint Committee) (31 Jan 2018)

Mark Pawsey: Will my right hon. Friend give way?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Electric Vehicle Charge Points (30 Jan 2018)

Mark Pawsey: What steps the Government have taken to improve electric vehicle charge point infrastructure.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Electric Vehicle Charge Points (30 Jan 2018)

Mark Pawsey: My constituency is already home to the new electric London taxi, and we have recently heard the announcement of £80 million of investment in a new electric battery development facility in Coventry. Does the Minister agree that this presents opportunities for my constituency and the wider area to establish leadership in the electric vehicles sector?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Literacy and Numeracy (29 Jan 2018)

Mark Pawsey: The Minister will know that only 1% of children who move from mainstream to alternative provision during their GCSE years achieve good GCSEs, including in English and maths. What more can be done to support this important group of students?

Business of the House (25 Jan 2018)

Mark Pawsey: May we have a debate about the provision of top-class sporting facilities? In my constituency, football supporters are concerned that Coventry City are just nine games away from homelessness—its agreement to play at the Ricoh Arena is coming to an end—and speedway fans can no longer watch their sport at Brandon because the stadium has been allowed to get into a state of disrepair.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (25 Jan 2018)

Mark Pawsey: I understand the Secretary of State’s concerns about what happens to plastic waste once it has been used, but does he agree that its use by retailers in particular gives consumers the widest possible choice and prevents food waste? It is important that any measures that we introduce do not reduce consumer choice and do not cause more of our food to be wasted.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Rough Sleeping (22 Jan 2018)

Mark Pawsey: In Rugby, council officers go out into the community to speak to rough sleepers and have recently placed four in supported accommodation, but more often than not offers of support are declined and only last week Warwickshire police charged two rough sleepers for aggressive begging. Does the Minister agree that it is vital that we provide support for those who are forced to sleep rough, but...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (22 Jan 2018)

Mark Pawsey: For the coming year, the Secretary of State has enabled councils to increase tax by 3%, compared with just 2% last year, but the cash limit has been retained at £5 when parity would be £7.50. That affects 88 small district councils. Will the Secretary of State consider a change?

Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation and Liability for Housing Standards) Bill (19 Jan 2018)

Mark Pawsey: I congratulate the hon. Lady on introducing this Bill and I assure her of our support. She mentioned some disturbing cases, examples of which we will all have heard in our constituency casework. Does she accept that private sector landlords play a valuable role in the housing market and that the vast majority of them understand that, in addition to their right to receive rent, they also have...
