Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (31 Jan 2018)

Andrew Jones: A vibrant high street is critical in traditional market towns such as Knaresborough, which has had a market since 1310. In this age of internet shopping, will my right hon. Friend confirm the Government’s support for traditional markets and for policies that will boost our high streets?

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill (30 Jan 2018)

Andrew Jones: I rise to speak in support of the Bill. It is positive that we are debating it and I very much enjoyed playing a role in its development. As my right hon. Friend the Member for Derbyshire Dales (Sir Patrick McLoughlin) said, passenger numbers on our railways have grown from just over 700 million to nearly 1.6 billion. That is a fantastic turnaround for an industry that had seen decades of...

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill (30 Jan 2018)

Andrew Jones: My hon. Friend makes an insightful point. We had decades of decline when the rail industry was in public hands. The turnaround post-privatisation has been dramatic. Opposition Members take that for granted and suggest that nationalisation is a way forward, but they have forgotten the complete change we saw, with the focus on customers and growth, and how that has delivered and been a key part...

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill (30 Jan 2018)

Andrew Jones: Well, the hon. Gentleman suggests that even more public money should go in, so I am not sure where his argument takes him, apart from round in a circle. We are seeing long-overdue public investment in the rail industry.

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill (30 Jan 2018)

Andrew Jones: My right hon. Friend is as wise as ever. Not only do we have public money going into our railways, but we are seeing private investment attracted into our railways and therefore more investment in aggregate. We have this urgent need for capacity within our network to cater for the growth both in passengers and in freight. After years of decline, this decision has been taken to go for growth....

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill (30 Jan 2018)

Andrew Jones: That has been part of the discussion throughout the day. I have to say that I missed some of the speeches. I am sorry to hear what the hon. Gentleman had to say, but I simply do not agree with his basic premise. I have travelled the route, met local communities along the route and met local government leaders and local businesses along the route. I simply do not agree with his premise. The...

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill (30 Jan 2018)

Andrew Jones: My hon. Friend makes a very interesting point. It was reasonably hard to see that from the project in development, but the teams I met working in the colleges were absolutely clear that they will be drawing on as much talent as possible, which will obviously mean bringing more women into engineering. We have a huge shortfall in the number of engineers in the UK. Historically, we have failed...

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill (30 Jan 2018)

Andrew Jones: My right hon. Friend makes an interesting point. I entirely agree with him. For those who have not yet had the opportunity to go to see Crossrail, the opportunity may well occur again as Crossrail has been taking people down to have a look at its sites. What Crossrail has achieved is fantastic. I hope that my hon. Friend the Member for Redditch will shortly be able to visit one of the HS2...

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill (30 Jan 2018)

Andrew Jones: My right hon. Friend makes two points. We have previously discussed the issue of tunnelling in the Chilterns. I feel more optimistic about the project as a whole. I do not feel that the current skills gap will hinder the delivery of the project, and I am clear that that will not happen because of the actions taken to bring more people into the sector. The fact that we have to deliver skills...

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill (30 Jan 2018)

Andrew Jones: I strongly support the Bill, and agree with my right hon. Friend’s comments about capacity in our rail network and the positive impact that HS2 will have on our northern economy. Can he tell us a little more about the impact on job creation in the north and elsewhere outside London?

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Employment: Disability (21 Dec 2017)

Andrew Jones: The Chancellor is extremely proud of our record of helping over 600,000 disabled people into employment over the last four years. At the Treasury Committee, he made a broader point about workforce productivity. Both the Institute for Fiscal Studies and the Office for Budget Responsibility have suggested that increasing overall employment may have had an effect on measures of productivity. The...

Andrew Jones: 11 data incidents were recorded in 2015-16 and 10 were recorded in 2016-17. None of the incidents involved personal data and none were reported to the Information Commissioner's Office. HM Treasury take security breaches very seriously. In every case where a breach is recorded, the scale of the breach is determined by assessing the circumstances of each case in line with our...

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Treasury: ICT (21 Dec 2017)

HMRC has already implemented much of the guidance set out in the recent publication through the successful conclusion of the Columbus programme (which will reduce IT run costs by c£200m pa by 2020-21), which saw the...
