Adjournment (November and Christmas): Business of the House (Private Members’ Bills) (17 Jul 2017)

Kevan Jones: In the previous debate, my hon. Friend the Member for Rhondda (Chris Bryant) talked about the power of the Executive not only over controlling the agenda, but over ensuring that laws that are in manifestos get through. However, we are in a unique position in this two-year Session of Parliament. As my hon. Friends the Members for Plymouth, Sutton and Devonport (Luke Pollard), for Ealing...

Adjournment (November and Christmas): Business of the House (Private Members’ Bills) (17 Jul 2017)

Kevan Jones: The need for that legislation came to light when we were passing the Armed Forces Act, when we were able to remove that provision in relation to the armed forces but not in relation to the merchant navy.

Bill Presented: Scheduling of Parliamentary Business (17 Jul 2017)

Kevan Jones: May I give the hon. Lady some advice? If she is going to make a speech, will she please look at the subject before she stands up to speak? She said she was disappointed that this debate was limiting the time available for the next one, a point made by the hon. Member for Eastleigh (Mims Davies).

Bill Presented: Scheduling of Parliamentary Business (17 Jul 2017)

Kevan Jones: This point has not really been raised in this debate, but is not the real reason why the Government are doing this the fact that there can be votes on those debates? The Government are scared of a number of individuals on their Back Benches doing what my right hon. Friend the Member for Knowsley (Mr Howarth) said, which is voting in the national interest rather than their party’s interest.
