The Prime Minister Was Asked: Points of Order (26 Apr 2017)

David Winnick: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Because Question 1 was closed, there was no opportunity to follow up that particular point about the west midlands. Is it possible to put it on the record that, if there had been an opportunity, Labour Members—certainly me and other hon. Members from the west midlands—would have restated that public services have been crippled in the west midlands as a...

The Prime Minister Was Asked: Points of Order (26 Apr 2017)

David Winnick: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. In order that there should be no misunderstanding, because the right hon. Member for New Forest West (Sir Desmond Swayne) gave the strong impression that I was not standing, I was desperately trying to catch your eye. If I may say so, the right hon. Gentleman and I have all the differences in the world, I am sure, but I have always looked on him...

Post Office Closures — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (25 Apr 2017)

David Winnick: Thank you, Sir Edward, for calling me to speak. I am pleased to follow the hon. Member for East Worthing and Shoreham (Tim Loughton), who made some valid points. Because of time, I will simply concentrate on the Willenhall Crown post office in the Walsall Borough. A second attempt is being made to close it. The first attempt was in 2013, which led to an Adjournment debate. The town was...

Written Answers — Home Office: Members: Correspondence (24 Apr 2017)

David Winnick: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, when she plans to respond to the letter of 6 March 2017 from the hon. Member for Walsall North concerning a constituent, ref T1183944.

Persecution and Detention of LGBT Citizens: Chechnya (20 Apr 2017)

David Winnick: Considering how this may be misrepresented abroad, particularly in Russia, is it not important to emphasise that this is first and foremost a matter of human rights, and certainly not a matter confined only to those who happen to be gay? Is it not interesting that this is being discussed 50 years after the House of Commons changed the law on homosexuality? If there is a debate in July near...

Early Parliamentary General Election (19 Apr 2017)

David Winnick: If the Prime Minister had said when she took office that her Government wanted a general election, there would have been less controversy than there is now, but there has been denial at every opportunity. The Prime Minister or those who speak for her denied that there would be a general election. “When is the general election?” they were asked, and the answer, which was quite clear, was...

Early Parliamentary General Election (19 Apr 2017)

David Winnick: I will not, due to the lack of time. The reason given by the Prime Minister for the general election—Brexit—is a feeble, flimsy excuse that is taking in no one. My hon. Friend the Member for Wolverhampton South West (Rob Marris) said that the Government should not be complacent about getting a large majority. Indeed, hopefully they will not get a large majority. When we consider the harm...

Early Parliamentary General Election (19 Apr 2017)

David Winnick: Is the Prime Minister at all concerned that, having tried her best to build a reputation for political integrity both as Home Secretary and Prime Minister, she is now seen, after all the denials that there would be a snap election, simply as a political opportunist?

Syria and North Korea (18 Apr 2017)

David Winnick: I do not regret any of my votes opposing military intervention in Syria, because at various times we were asked to oppose one side or the other, but if there had been no military retaliation in response to the chemical attack, is there not a case that it would have encouraged Assad to do it again?

Written Answers — Home Office: Members: Correspondence (18 Apr 2017)

David Winnick: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, when she plans to respond to the letter of 7 March 2017 from the hon. Member for Walsall North on behalf of a constituent, on police dogs.

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Members: Correspondence (18 Apr 2017)

David Winnick: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, when she plans to respond to the letter of 7 March 2017 from the hon. Member for Walsall North on behalf of a constituent, on internet speeds.

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Land: Walsall North (31 Mar 2017)

David Winnick: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, with reference to the letter from the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State of 20 February 2017 to the hon. Member for Walsall North, reference MC421056/ON, which stated that a decision would be reached on the public inquiry into land in Walsall North constituency by the end of March, on what date that decision will be made.

Article 50 (29 Mar 2017)

David Winnick: Given the reference of some Members to the British people, is it not important to recognise that a large majority of this country’s people are not fanatically for or against the UK being in the European Union? If we want to bring the people together, as the Prime Minister says she does, that should very much be borne in mind. If, during the negotiations undertaken by her predecessor, we had...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (28 Mar 2017)

David Winnick: Everyone wants to see territory liberated from the murderers of the so-called Islamic State, but is the Foreign Secretary aware of the deep concern over the recent air strikes, which have caused the death of so many innocent civilians, including children? There was no attempt to save the children. Is he aware of how important it is to try to minimise civilian tragedies, and will he make...

London Attacks (23 Mar 2017)

David Winnick: We recognise the immense bravery of all concerned yesterday, but should we not also recognise that, unfortunately, terror attacks are likely to continue for years to come and, needless to say, this country is not unique in Europe, let alone elsewhere, in having such onslaughts against us. Arising from what the Prime Minister said, may I just tell her that, during all the years of sustained...

Advisory Committee on Business Appointments/Ministerial Code (20 Mar 2017)

David Winnick: Those of us who were here at the time remember how difficult it was to restore the reputation of this House after the expenses scandal. Is there not a wider issue here about how the public look upon what they describe as the political class and about the feeling, justified or otherwise, that we are all greedy, on the make, and so on? We have to be careful that we are not tarred with the same...

Sky/21ST Century Fox: Merger (16 Mar 2017)

David Winnick: I recognise and respect what the Secretary of State has told the House, and we all appreciate her keeping the House up to date. I again say that this is not a question of any kind of vendetta against Mr Murdoch, but it would be simply unacceptable for the amount of media ownership he already controls to be increased. That is the position, and it is why I hope that the right decision will be...

European Council (14 Mar 2017)

David Winnick: The country is almost evenly divided about leaving the EU, so how will the Prime Minister try to resolve that? I have not known the country to be so divided since Suez in 1956.

Turkey: Human Rights and the Political Situation — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (9 Mar 2017)

David Winnick: Following that, is it not the case that many of the people who have been held in detention, persecuted or subject to repression are the very people who were the first to condemn the attempted military coup? The defenders of democracy are now being persecuted by the regime.

Turkey: Human Rights and the Political Situation — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (9 Mar 2017)

David Winnick: The Prime Minister did make a reference to human rights, but she could not very well have said less. It was a passing reference with no emphasis, and the general impression was that, those few words having been said, the UK Government were willing to make the commercial deals in question with Turkey, and that human rights in Turkey are not really on the UK agenda.
