Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Data protection breaches by national news publishers (15 May 2018)

John Grogan: I will not because there is little time. I am a great fan of the BBC, but it was involved in the Cliff Richard case, yet it is exempted from the inquiry by another clause. The Kerslake report has been mentioned at length. I have read it not seven, but a couple of times. It is damning about many practices that happened after the Manchester bombing. By the way, it praises the only journalistic...

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Data protection breaches by national news publishers (15 May 2018)

John Grogan: That is very helpful. When my hon. Friend, as well as my right hon. Friends the Members for Birmingham, Hodge Hill (Liam Byrne) and for Doncaster North (Edward Miliband), were in high positions in government, some of us on the Back Benches talked about the concentration of media power, and we did not do enough about it.

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Data protection breaches by national news publishers (15 May 2018)

John Grogan: I will not give way because I am being urged to conclude. We should not look back in anger at all those frustrations, but plan a progressive media policy for the future and we should not subcontract that to a judge.

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Data protection breaches by national news publishers (15 May 2018)

John Grogan: Like the hon. Member for Wellingborough (Mr Bone), I have been contemplating the relationship between what is in a party manifesto and how Members should vote. I am glad to hear the deputy Leader of the Opposition say that manifestos are just guidance because our manifesto undoubtedly committed us to Leveson 2. When I first heard about the amendments on Leveson 2 last week, I sought guidance...

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Data protection breaches by national news publishers (15 May 2018)

John Grogan: Will my hon. Friend go a little further? Is he saying that the Labour party has dropped section 40 for good in the case of all newspapers, and that—whether in opposition or in government—we will never bring back punitive damages for newspapers in order to get them to sign up to a state-sponsored regulator?

Health and Social Care: Alcohol: Minimum Unit Pricing (8 May 2018)

John Grogan: Does the Minister agree that it is significant that major pub companies and brewers such as Greene King, Coors and Tennent’s now support minimum pricing, and that what is good for the nation’s health is good for the nation’s pubs and the promotion of sensible drinking?

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (8 May 2018)

John Grogan: Does the Secretary of State share my concern that, according to the Royal College of Physicians, 43% of advertised consultant vacancies were left unfilled in 2016-17? Will Ministers be brave and argue publicly that there should be more visas for overseas doctors?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Employee-owned Companies (1 May 2018)

John Grogan: What steps he is taking to encourage the growth of employee-owned companies.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Employee-owned Companies (1 May 2018)

John Grogan: Does the Minister agree that, taken as a sector, the UK’s 300 employee-owned businesses have higher than average productivity? Will he follow the example of the Scottish and Welsh Governments and more actively promote the sector, particularly to small and medium-sized businesses that are looking for a succession plan?

Housing, Communities and Local Government: One Yorkshire (30 Apr 2018)

John Grogan: What assessment he has made of the potential merits of the proposal from 18 Yorkshire councils for a One Yorkshire devolution settlement.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: One Yorkshire (30 Apr 2018)

John Grogan: Does the Minister accept that it is now the settled will of the vast majority of councils in Yorkshire, and the vast majority of the people there, that we move towards a One Yorkshire devolution settlement, and will he encourage the new Secretary of State to initiate talks with the Yorkshire councils so that he will be ever remembered as the man who delivered the first elected mayor to the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: National Park Authorities (26 Apr 2018)

John Grogan: Does the Minister share my sense of regret that not one member of the Yorkshire Dales national park authority lives in any of the great towns or cities West Yorkshire? Does she further agree that if there were more urban dwellers on national park authorities, they would be likely to take more notice of the recent report by the Campaign for National Parks urging more public transport from the...

The Right Hon. Member for Meriden, Representing the Church Commissioners, Was Asked: Theft from Churches (26 Apr 2018)

John Grogan: To ask the right hon. Member for Meriden, representing the Church Commissioners, what recent discussions the Church of England has had with the Government and the insurance industry on the theft of metal, stone and decorative objects from churches.

The Right Hon. Member for Meriden, Representing the Church Commissioners, Was Asked: Theft from Churches (26 Apr 2018)

John Grogan: Will the Church Commissioners urge Ministers to introduce a scrap stone Act along the lines of the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013, which improved councils’ regulation of metal and stopped the trading of scrap metal in cash?

School Funding: Social Care (25 Apr 2018)

John Grogan: It is a great pleasure to follow the detailed analysis of my hon. Friend the Member for Warrington South (Faisal Rashid). As a Yorkshire MP, it is always good to follow a Member from the other side of the Pennines—it is early season yet, Mr Deputy Speaker, but particularly when Yorkshire is at the top of the county championship and Lancashire is at the bottom. I want to take up two...

School Funding: Social Care (25 Apr 2018)

John Grogan: I of course give way to my Yorkshire colleague.

School Funding: Social Care (25 Apr 2018)

John Grogan: I certainly agree that we have to pool risk, but it has to involve everyone in society, from the poor to the rich, so that whatever our circumstances we get the care we need in those days. We heard a lot from the hon. Member for North Cornwall (Scott Mann) and other hon. Members about the potential of technology. That is a worthwhile point to make. Age UK has provided all hon. Members with...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Topical Questions (23 Apr 2018)

John Grogan: Given the historical and continuing defence ties between the United Kingdom and Korea, will Ministers do all they can to encourage the remarkable peace process that is gathering pace and the aim of ridding the entire peninsula of nuclear weapons?

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Communications Act 2003: Public Service Broadcasters (22 Mar 2018)

John Grogan: Whether he has made an assessment of the potential merits of extending the provisions of the Communications Act 2003 to give greater prominence to public service broadcasters; and if he will make a statement.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Communications Act 2003: Public Service Broadcasters (22 Mar 2018)

John Grogan: As one who somewhat unexpectedly returned to the House last June, I too want to thank all those who protect us on a daily basis to enable us to do our own job of giving voice to our constituents in the Chamber. Does the Minister agree that Parliament needs to give updated powers to Ofcom so that it can ensure that public service content, such as “Newsround” on CBBC, is easier to...
