Firearms Bill: Second Reading – Shaun Bailey. Private Members' Bills

NHS Funding Bill (27 Jan 2020)

Shaun Bailey: One of the examples of this Government’s commitment to hospital infrastructure is the Midland Metropolitan Hospital that we are going to see in Sandwell, which many of my constituents will benefit from. Will my right hon. Friend assure me that, while we will obviously prioritise that, the existing infrastructure will still be prioritised as well? Will he meet me to discuss existing needs in...

Global Britain (30 Jan 2020)

Shaun Bailey: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker. May I start by congratulating you on your role. It is great to have you in the Chair for my maiden speech. I cannot say I have a favourite in the Speaker’s team, but it is nice to see you in the Chair. I also congratulate the hon. Member for Aberdeen South (Stephen Flynn). While we may not agree on a lot of things, he speaks passionately for his community,...

Crime (West Sandwell) (27 Feb 2020)

Shaun Bailey: A few weeks ago, I stood in this Chamber and stated very clearly that I would not allow the people of West Bromwich West to be abandoned again. That is why I am here today: to fight for them and keep our communities safe. I am sure that all of us across the House can agree that it is that sense of community—that coming together of people, and the genuine care and compassion we show each...

Crime (West Sandwell) (27 Feb 2020)

Shaun Bailey: I agree with the right hon. Gentleman, having also seen that in my constituency casework. I am sure it is something he sees almost daily in his mailbag. Since the Labour police and crime commissioner for the west midlands took office in August 2014, we have seen month-on-month increases in violent crime—we have seen violent crime rise by 175%. For example, in August 2014 there were 3,148...

Crime (West Sandwell) (27 Feb 2020)

Shaun Bailey: I am afraid that I must make some progress. I also ask the PCC to tell people in Wednesbury who have lost their desk service why an office refurbishment should be the priority. I thank my good friend Jay Singh-Sohal, the Conservative candidate for West Midlands police and crime commissioner, for his steadfast support and leadership in the campaign to keep Tipton police station open, as well...

Crime (West Sandwell) (27 Feb 2020)

Shaun Bailey: I really do need to make some progress. I have been impressed by the efforts of police forces across the country to focus on cyber-crime, recruiting special police officers to deal with cyber-crime and tackling the new ways in which crime has developed, particularly in the west midlands. But I am sure that what our constituents want to see is community-based policing.

Crime (West Sandwell) (27 Feb 2020)

Shaun Bailey: It is as if the right hon. Gentleman can read my mind. Community-based policing means boots on the ground, just as he says from a sedentary position, but it also means buildings and a real estate strategy, as well as fostering community engagement—another core point. How we manage the roles of police officers in our communities also needs to change. Police officers tell me that they do not...

Crime (West Sandwell) (27 Feb 2020)

Shaun Bailey: Yes, as the right hon. Gentleman has been so persistent.

Crime (West Sandwell) (27 Feb 2020)

Shaun Bailey: I have a lot of respect for the right hon. Gentleman, but let us look at the reasons why those cuts were made. Quite frankly, it is all summed up by the individual he is backing to be the Mayor of the west midlands, who left the note to say there was no money left. I assure this House that we will be working to ensure that he does not do to the west midlands what he did to this country. On...

Prime Minister: Engagements (4 Mar 2020)

Shaun Bailey: Communities like mine in West Bromwich West are grateful for this Government’s commitment to 366 police officers for the west midlands. Will my right hon. Friend reaffirm that, unlike the Labour police and crime commissioner, who is decimating communities like mine in Tipton with the closure of our police station, this Government are committed to keep our communities safe through investment...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Parental Leave (11 Mar 2020)

Shaun Bailey: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what steps the Government Equalities Office is taking to help promote shared parental leave.

Education (Guidance about Costs of School Uniforms) Bill (13 Mar 2020)

Shaun Bailey: I just want to take a step back for a minute. What does the hon. Gentleman think about the inclusion of PE kits, DT kits and things such as that? Much of the time, what a school specifies to parents is not just about the blazer, the shirt and the shoes, but about the other things as well. How does he think that that could be dealt with in this Bill, or does he think that we need to go wider...

Education and Training (Welfare of Children) Bill (13 Mar 2020)

Shaun Bailey: I want to start by paying tribute to the hon. Member for City of Durham (Mary Kelly Foy) for bringing the Bill forward. It is vital that we get this done, and it is great to be able to speak in the debate. I am slightly afraid that I may be in an echo chamber with some of my comments. My hon. Friends the Members for Sevenoaks (Laura Trott) and for Harborough (Neil O’Brien) have covered a...

Public Sector Exit Payments (Limitation) Bill (13 Mar 2020)

Shaun Bailey: Does my hon. Friend agree that, while we agree on the sentiment of the Bill, we need a wider cultural change and to encourage more diversity in such roles? Organisations should look not at lateral hires but at hires from outside—perhaps more people from the private sector. A cultural change in addition to the initiative in the Bill is perhaps the way in which to bring about proper...

Written Answers — Treasury: Non-domestic Rates (31 Mar 2020)

Shaun Bailey: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what steps he is taking to support businesses with property with a rateable value of over £51,000 and who therefore do not qualify for grant funding.

Work and Pensions: Economic Recovery (11 May 2020)

Shaun Bailey: What steps her Department plans to take to support economic recovery after the covid-19 outbreak.

Work and Pensions: Economic Recovery (11 May 2020)

Shaun Bailey: I thank my hon. Friend for her response. The black country still remains the workshop of the United Kingdom, and nowhere exemplifies that more than the communities that I represent in Wednesbury, Oldbury and Tipton. It is likely that many skilled workers in my constituency will need to be redeployed or reskilled as a result of this crisis, so what work will my hon. Friend be undertaking,...

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Pubs as Takeaway Restaurants (19 May 2020)

Shaun Bailey: Whether he plans to promote pubs as takeaway restaurants during the covid-19 outbreak.

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Pubs as Takeaway Restaurants (19 May 2020)

Shaun Bailey: I am encouraged by my right hon. Friend’s response. Our pubs are at the heart of the communities I represent in Wednesbury, Oldbury and Tipton. What work will he be undertaking alongside his colleagues across Government and, more importantly, on a regional level with our West Midlands Mayor, Andy Street, to ensure that pubs in the Black Country have all the means necessary to survive and...
