Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Jun 2015)

James Berry: The great British jobs boom has earned the Prime Minister and the Chancellor the admiration of leaders the world over and the support of my constituents. Does my right hon. Friend agree that businesses in Kingston and Surbiton could create even more jobs if we had better train services and, particularly, Crossrail 2?

Education and Adoption Bill (22 Jun 2015)

James Berry: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker, for calling me to make my maiden speech. It is a pleasure to follow such a fine maiden speech from the hon. Member for Glasgow North West (Carol Monaghan). It will not have escaped your attention, Madam Deputy Speaker, that I am not the only Berry on these Benches. Indeed, I am not even the only J. Berry. It has become clear over the past few weeks that, if...

James Berry: May I follow my maiden speech with a request that the Minister meet me and other new colleagues who are passionate about increasing social aspiration through education, so that we can share with him our experiences and examples of best practice locally?

Business of the House: Reports into Investigatory Powers (25 Jun 2015)

James Berry: People in the UK face a range of threats to their liberty and security from terrorists and criminals on a daily basis. The police and the Security Services, in whom we put our faith to keep us safe, are not assisted in their task by the fast pace at which communications technology is advancing. Devices and applications that have become features of everyday life for our general use and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (20 Jul 2015)

James Berry: Children in Kingston and Surbiton perform above the national average in speech and language at age five. However, the poorest children are still almost twice as likely to fall behind later in their education, despite the best efforts of their teachers. Does my hon. Friend agree that there is evidence that high-quality early education, linked to the presence of well-qualified staff in the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Government Support: Savers/Homeowners (21 Jul 2015)

James Berry: In my weekly surgeries in Kingston and Surbiton a constant theme is how difficult it is to get on the housing ladder in London. Will my right hon. Friend explain how his Help to Buy policies will help my hard-working constituents? Does he agree that plans for more tax, more borrowing and more spending would put house building and families striving to save for a deposit at risk?

British Airways (Pensions Uprating) (14 Sep 2015)

James Berry: Will the Minister give way?

British Airways (Pensions Uprating) (14 Sep 2015)

James Berry: Does the Minister agree that, while there is little the Government can do in a private trust matter that is currently before the High Court, there is much that British Airways could do for its 28,000 pensioners on the APS scheme, including my constituents, by facing up to either the letter or the spirit of its responsibilities?

Tamils Rights: Sri Lanka — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (15 Sep 2015)

James Berry: I beg to move, That this House has considered Tamil people’s rights in Sri Lanka. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Brady. I am particularly grateful that we have the opportunity to debate human rights in Sri Lanka in the same week that the UN Human Rights Council begins considering the same subject in its 30th session in Geneva. In the closing stages of the Sri Lankan...

Tamils Rights: Sri Lanka — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (15 Sep 2015)

James Berry: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that intervention. The form of the mechanism will obviously be debated at the UNHRC and in my view it will be led by the United Nations, and will be under their guidance.

Tamils Rights: Sri Lanka — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (15 Sep 2015)

James Berry: Yes. For the reasons I just mentioned, it is small wonder that many Tamil people have little faith in the Government to convene a fair and impartial justice mechanism. The second objection to a domestic inquiry is that Sri Lanka is not a signatory to the Rome statute; its domestic laws do not cover a number of the international laws that were breached by both sides, credible evidence of which...

Tamils Rights: Sri Lanka — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (15 Sep 2015)

James Berry: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention. During a number of years, there have been repeated failures by the Sri Lankan Government to put in place a credible process. That is why it is important that, whatever comes out of the current UNHRC session, robust procedures are put in place, so that whatever system is arrived at the UN strictly monitors it and can return to the UNHRC if the...

Tamils Rights: Sri Lanka — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (15 Sep 2015)

James Berry: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention and I certainly commend the work that has been done by British parliamentarians to help to support parliamentarians in Sri Lanka; long may that work continue. Sri Lanka’s track record on accountability is summed up by the fact that not a single prosecution has yet taken place, which I consider an absolute disgrace. Given that, it is my firm...
