Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Covid-19 Lockdown: Air Quality (19 May 2020)

Jeff Smith: I thank the Minister for her answer. That is some small good news, I guess, out of lockdown.

Is the Minister concerned that the Prime Minister’s statement of 10 May encouraged the use of cars?

Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill (18 May 2020)

Jeff Smith: It is a pleasure to take part in this debate remotely. Last week, one Member described the hybrid system as “sub-optimal”, and that is undoubtedly the case, but it does at least allow everyone the chance to take part in debates safely. If the Leader of the House is going to press ahead with his proposals for a physical Parliament after recess, I hope he will explain how we could debate...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Covid-19: Local Authority Revenue (28 Apr 2020)

That is the money that has kept services going in the face of some of the harshest cuts in the public sector and is allowing the council to lead...

British Citizens Abroad: FCO Help to Return Home (24 Mar 2020)

Jeff Smith: Given that we are still in a transition period with the EU, can the Foreign Secretary clarify whether UK nationals can access flights operated by EU countries?

Economic Update (17 Mar 2020)

Jeff Smith: A lot of my constituents work in the events and leisure industry; many are self-employed freelancers. I spoke to one today, who told me that she earns a large proportion of her annual income during the summer event and festival season. She is going to lose that this year. Given that it could be another year before she is able to get back on her feet, can I urge the Chancellor to come back...
