Andrew Jones: You normally call me Andrew Jones, Mr Speaker.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (5 Jul 2018)

Andrew Jones: I beg your pardon.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (5 Jul 2018)

Andrew Jones: Thank you. May I first welcome today’s announcement of an HS2 depot in Leeds, which is welcome news for the northern powerhouse? The A59 at Kex Gill is an important trans-Pennine route, and its closure is impacting on residents and businesses in my constituency. Will my right hon. Friend meet me to discuss what support the Government can provide to North Yorkshire County Council to...

Andrew Jones: What steps her Department is taking to promote trading opportunities to encourage development in East Africa.

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: East Africa: Trading Opportunities (4 Jul 2018)

Andrew Jones: In the past decade more than 1 billion people have been lifted out of poverty, largely thanks to free trade. Owing to my commercial experience, I have seen for myself the quality of the produce from the agricultural sector in East Africa, and I am not surprised that it has found a strong export market. Does my right hon. Friend agree that the best and most sustainable way out of poverty is...

Counter-Daesh Update: Point of Order (3 Jul 2018)

Andrew Jones: Further to that point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. I obviously would not in any way wish to mislead the House or correct a Member inaccurately, so I went back and checked the press report. The headline at the time was, “MyFerryLink workers walked out on Monday over the sale of the company’s ferries”, resulting in the strike closing the port of Calais. The right hon....

Haulage Permits and Trailer Registration Bill [Lords]: Consequential amendments (26 Jun 2018)

Andrew Jones: I want to say a few quick words in support of the Bill and the sector. The road haulage industry is hugely important to the United Kingdom. It does the heavy lifting of goods around our country and because it works so well and so smoothly, it is frequently taken for granted. There are 320,000 HGV drivers employed in the UK, and in terms of the workforce, that goes up to around 2.5 million...

Haulage Permits and Trailer Registration Bill [Lords]: EU Community Licence arrangements (26 Jun 2018)

Andrew Jones: The right hon. Gentleman talked about the causes of Operation Stack in 2015. There were two causes, neither of which were the one he identified, so I would not want him to be inadvertently misleading the House. The causes were the migrant crisis affecting the operation of Eurotunnel and the French ferries going on strike. It was very clear at the time that those were the causes. Ministers...

Haulage Permits and Trailer Registration Bill [Lords]: EU Community Licence arrangements (26 Jun 2018)

Andrew Jones: The causes were very clear. I was the Minister at the time who had responsibility for Operation Stack. I went down and met with people who were operating it and dealing with the problems. What the causes were was extremely clear. The right hon. Gentleman is just plain wrong.

Gosport Independent Panel: Publication of Report (20 Jun 2018)

Andrew Jones: We have had Mid Staffs, Morecambe Bay and now the Gosport War Memorial Hospital. That tells us that significant patient failures are not one-offs; indeed, the Francis report of 2013 was one of the most challenging public documents I have ever read. My right hon. Friend has made patient safety a personal priority, with his customary judgment and compassion. Can he confirm that this developing...

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (19 Jun 2018)

Andrew Jones: Prostate cancer survival rates may be at a record high, but it is still among the biggest cancer killers in our country today. What can the Government do to save more lives in this area?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Sewel Convention (14 Jun 2018)

Andrew Jones: Can my right hon. Friend confirm he still expects that the overwhelming majority of areas will be devolved to Holyrood immediately after Brexit, the result of which will be that the Scottish Parliament will have close to 100 new powers that it does not currently have? Those will be new powers for Scotland.

Business of the House (14 Jun 2018)

Andrew Jones: Knaresborough in my constituency contains a specific clutch of shops that have been empty for years or even decades, impacting on the attractiveness of the high street. Persuading the owners to bring those shops back into use is difficult because they are listed buildings and incur no business rates as long as they are empty—they are simply decaying. May we have a debate to explore how...

Airports National Policy Statement (5 Jun 2018)

Andrew Jones: I welcome my right hon. Friend’s statement. Does he agree that as Heathrow is the UK’s hub airport and this expansion will bring forward new routes, improved connectivity to Heathrow will bring important benefits to the people and economy of Yorkshire and other parts of the northern powerhouse?

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community: Northern Rail Timetable Changes (24 May 2018)

Andrew Jones: My hon. Friend is quite right to highlight the frequency improvements and particularly the upgrade of the rolling stock, with the removal of the Pacers. In the context that the franchise is improving and has ambitious long-term plans—I ought to own up that I was a Minister at the time of the franchise renewal so am slightly marking my own homework—we are talking about identifying...

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community: Northern Rail Timetable Changes (24 May 2018)

Andrew Jones: My hon. Friend is spot on in identifying the cause of the challenges faced by Northern rail with the implementation of the new timetable: the delay caused by electrification on the Manchester-Bolton-Preston line, which has had huge consequences. He has articulated the impact on his constituents incredibly clearly, but this is also happening in other parts of the franchise, including across...

Marks & Spencer (24 May 2018)

Andrew Jones: Speaking as a former Marks & Spencer supplier and current Marks & Spencer customer, the hon. Member for East Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow (Dr Cameron) highlighted the importance of an anchor store to a town’s retail offer and the social importance of the high street. I entirely agreed with her question. Will my right hon. Friend remain vigilant on, or at least sensitive...

Business of the House (24 May 2018)

Andrew Jones: Please can we have a debate on the positive impact of business on local communities? In addition to the economic benefits, there are social benefits, which I have seen locally given that so many businesses in Harrogate and Knaresborough are putting something back, including Harrogate Water’s work with the Keep Britain Tidy campaign. I have also seen it nationally, as charities such as...

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (16 May 2018)
