Online Child Abuse (20 Jul 2016)

Madeleine Moon: Order. The hon. Lady is eating into the Minister’s time. Can she bring her remarks to a conclusion? She has had more than her allotted five minutes.

Online Child Abuse (20 Jul 2016)

Madeleine Moon: I advise Members that I will go to the Front-Bench speakers at 5.18 pm at the very latest and that the debate will end at 5.38 pm.

Terrorist Attack: Nice: UK's Nuclear Deterrent (18 Jul 2016)

Madeleine Moon: Should we not get this into some sort of perspective? By 2020 the UK’s stockpile of nuclear weapons will be no more than 180, with only 120 operationally available, whereas Russia, China and North Korea have between 6,500 and 8,500 between them.

Terrorist Attack: Nice: UK's Nuclear Deterrent (18 Jul 2016)

Madeleine Moon: One lesson from history must be from Nye Bevan, who said as Foreign Secretary that he should not be sent “naked into the conference chamber”. What sort of emperor in new clothing would go into a conference chamber with President Putin, for example, and say, “I don’t have nuclear weapons—well, I have some nuclear-powered subs, but there are no weapons on them”?

Terrorist Attack: Nice: UK's Nuclear Deterrent (18 Jul 2016)

Madeleine Moon: I am sure the Prime Minister is aware that Russia has 10 times the amount of tactical nuclear weapons than the whole of the rest of NATO. On a recent Defence Committee visit to Russia, we were told by senior military leaders that they reserved the right to use nuclear weapons as a first strike. Is that not something that should make us very afraid if we ever thought of giving up our nuclear...

Terrorist Attack: Nice (18 Jul 2016)

Madeleine Moon: As well as deploying its security services and its police force, France has deployed more than 10,000 of its army personnel and has talked about calling up 55,000 reservists. During the Olympics, the British military played an important part in our security. May I assume that the Home Secretary is talking to the Secretary of State for Defence about the lessons that the British military can...

Points of Order: [2nd Day] (14 Jul 2016)

Madeleine Moon: A number of people have said today that the 2003 decision casts a long shadow, and indeed it does. There has been much talk about lessons learned and lessons needing to be learned, but I fear that this is largely about: “I was right and others were wrong”. There is a slightly self-righteous tone when people talk about where they stood on the vote in 2003 that I feel will not help...

Points of Order: [2nd Day] (14 Jul 2016)

Madeleine Moon: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that most helpful intervention, because it takes us back to the exact same issue that people faced when dealing with Saddam Hussein. He led people down a track that really made intervention almost inevitable. He ignored all the UN missions and he was obstructive many times to the people who went in to look for weapons. I am not sure whether the hon. Gentleman...

Points of Order: [2nd Day] (14 Jul 2016)

Madeleine Moon: I look at the Russians in Syria. I look at what the Russians did in Afghanistan. Do I want to stand alongside them? I have my standards. The hon. Gentleman may have different standards, but I am not for the barrel bombing of civilians, which the Russians think perfectly acceptable. I am not someone who will be happy about coming to the House and just saying, “We made mistakes in...

Points of Order: [2nd Day] (14 Jul 2016)

Madeleine Moon: I thank the hon. Gentleman for giving way and for his powerful speech. One thing that has always worried me about the Iraq war debate is the idea of the military as victims who were forced to go to fight when they in fact were trained and wanted to do so. What they did not want, however, was bad equipment, and they do not want bad equipment today. Does it not behove this House and its Members...

Business of the House (14 Jul 2016)

Madeleine Moon: I for one am extremely pleased to see the Leader of the House still in his position, because in April I advised him that Porthcawl primary school, with its Porthcawl power team, had won second place in the Jaguar Formula 1 primary schools challenge, demonstrating the great capabilities of science, technology, engineering and maths—STEM—teaching in Wales, and I can now bring him...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Nature Conservation (11 Jul 2016)

Madeleine Moon: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what assessment she has made of the effect of the vote to leave the EU on her policy on the EU nature directives; and if she will make a statement.

(30 Jun 2016)

Madeleine Moon: Given all that the hon. Gentleman has said about the importance of the integrity of the Land Registry, why is it not appropriate to build that flexibility for entrepreneurship into the current Land Registry so that it can make the profit that is necessary for the investment and modernisation that are needed? Why do we have to take this risk?

(30 Jun 2016)

Madeleine Moon: A considerable number of my constituents work in the Land Registry in south Wales. Their concern is that they constantly have to adapt their practice on the basis of new policy guidelines from the Government. They work within an overarching public interest requirement, and they are worried that that ability to adapt will go if there is a constant need to renegotiate contracts and seek changes...

(30 Jun 2016)

Madeleine Moon: Does my right hon. Friend think that the privatisation proposal has been driven by a desire to maintain the professionalism, integrity and impartiality of the Land Registry or by a petty desire for a short-term and dangerous input of cash to the hard-pressed Treasury? Which is it?

Business of the House (30 Jun 2016)

Madeleine Moon: Much of the anti-immigration rhetoric in the Brexit debate was driven by the lack of availability of housing, in particular secure social housing tenancies that give families security and stability. May we expect a Government statement on their joining the Welsh Assembly Government in removing the right to buy and the right to acquire? Will we have a statement on ensuring an appropriate level...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Severn Bridges (30 Jun 2016)

Madeleine Moon: I have a large number of haulage and private contract hire companies in my constituency, many of which trade across the whole of the UK. They are very concerned that the consultation is not just a paper exercise and that the Minister is listening. Once the tolls have paid off the cost of the bridge, will he consider handing it over to the Welsh Assembly to manage?

Outcome of the EU Referendum (27 Jun 2016)

Madeleine Moon: Forty-eight per cent. of the country wake up sick at heart and angry every day. Now, large numbers of people who actually voted for Brexit are also waking up sick and angry when they find out they were lied to about money for the NHS and about immigration. How does the Prime Minister hope to build unity in this country with a Government that may well include people who misled the British...

Written Answers — Department of Health: Kidneys: Transplant Surgery (27 Jun 2016)

Madeleine Moon: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, how many kidney transplants took place by region for which the source of the donated kidney was (a) cadaver, (b) a relative and (c) altruism in each of the last five years; and if he will make a statement.

Written Answers — Department of Health: Kidneys: Donors (27 Jun 2016)

Madeleine Moon: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what assessment his Department has made of the need to provide additional kidney organ donation surgery as a result of the change to an opt-out system in Wales; and if he will make a statement.
