Upcoming Business – Commons: Main Chamber (3 Mar 2023)

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

Midlands Metro Extension (26 Jan 2023)

Shaun Bailey: It is a pleasure to bring this matter to the Floor of the House. I will start in perhaps a different way by paying tribute to the Minister on the Treasury Bench. He and I have known each other for some three years, since we were elected together. People often say in this place that it is not a meritocracy and that it is who you know that gets you where you are, but my hon. Friend is certainly...

Midlands Metro Extension (26 Jan 2023)

Shaun Bailey: And fish as well, as my right hon. Friend points out. If we get this right, it will unlock a real opportunity to see the best of the Black Country and galvanise our communities. Whether people love it or loathe it, HS2 is a key part of the broader infrastructure journey for the west midlands. The metro extension from Wednesbury to Brierley Hill—should it be completed—will allow...

Crustacean Mortality in North-east England: Independent Expert Assessment (26 Jan 2023)

Shaun Bailey: This issue is important, and not just in the north-east but across the country as we look at environmental impacts. I do not disagree about challenging and questioning the science where we need to and forging that debate; what I take issue with is when individuals’ integrity is questioned, whether that is the independent expert panel, who were referred to in quotation marks by an Opposition...

NHS Winter Pressures (9 Jan 2023)

Shaun Bailey: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker—I am last but I hope I am certainly not least. Some 700 beds are due to come online thanks to the Midland Metropolitan University Hospital and there is a new primary care centre in Wednesbury, so when my right hon. Friend’s Department delivers, we see the benefit. Clearly, however, that means nothing if we cannot get the processes right. The most pressing...

Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Topical Questions (9 Jan 2023)

Shaun Bailey: My life peaked last month when I finally got to cut the ribbon on the Poundland in Owen Street, Tipton, which was opening after years of negotiation. A high streets strategy will be an important part of our levelling-up agenda. Will my hon. Friend meet me to discuss how we can make the most of the true beating heart of the Black Country, including the high streets in Tipton and Wednesbury?

Russia: UK Companies (7 Dec 2022)

Shaun Bailey: The flipside of this narrative is that companies are doing the right thing. I am concerned—I have read such reports locally—about companies that have divested their interest in Russia but are now struggling to get legal and audit services. As a result of having that previous interest, companies are reluctant to touch them. It is bizarre that companies and organisations that have done the...

Offenders (Day of Release from Detention) Bill (2 Dec 2022)

Shaun Bailey: I agree with some of what the hon. Lady has said. However, on the point about participation, I get what she is saying, but, surely, if Labour Members were so enthusiastic, they would be here in the Chamber. The hon. Lady is here because she clearly supports the Bill. Where are her colleagues?

Offenders (Day of Release from Detention) Bill (2 Dec 2022)

Shaun Bailey: rose—

Offenders (Day of Release from Detention) Bill (2 Dec 2022)

Shaun Bailey: I take real exception to what the hon. Lady is saying. I have seen at first hand the impact of this in my own community, and I have spoken to a number of charities. [Interruption.] Let me take the heat out of this. This is a common-sense Bill. We all agree on that. We have all seen the impact of this. Regardless of the back and forth—although, Mr Deputy Speaker, my contribution was not...

Offenders (Day of Release from Detention) Bill (2 Dec 2022)

Shaun Bailey: My hon. Friend is making a characteristically articulate speech, so I want to say well done for that; it is fantastic. He has mentioned a number of charities and third-party organisations. Does he agree that one of the good things about the Bill and the practical use of its discretion is that, as I touched on in my contribution, it enables a bit of forward planning? If we could enable further...

Offenders (Day of Release from Detention) Bill (2 Dec 2022)

Shaun Bailey: It is a pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Barrow and Furness (Simon Fell), who gave an absolutely fantastic justification for the Bill. He was so articulate and measured in the way he put forward his argument that it makes it nigh on impossible not to support the Bill, given his efforts. I pay tribute to him for his work in this area, and for his work on the Home Affairs...

Finance Bill (28 Nov 2022)

Shaun Bailey: I could say so much about what we are debating today that I do not know if I can contain myself. I am fortunate that procedurally there is no time limit for Finance Bills, so I could speak for hours about the Government’s proposals, but I will be as circumspect as possible. We have heard some fantastic contributions, including from my hon. Friend the Member for Eastleigh (Paul Holmes); I...

Points of Order (28 Nov 2022)

Shaun Bailey: Further to that point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. The hon. Lady has just turned around and said, “Do you want to tell me to sit down out there?” To me, that sounds quite threatening. Is that in line with the code of conduct of Members of this House?

Energy (oil and gas) profits levy (22 Nov 2022)

Shaun Bailey: My hon. Friend is making a very passionate speech. On the living wage, the Labour party will not commit to not raising taxes on low-end workers. How much would Labour’s tax bombshell take from those on the living wage? Clearly, we have got one incoming; we can see it over there. What is her estimate, if Labour does raise taxes on people at the lower end of the tax spectrum?

Energy (oil and gas) profits levy (22 Nov 2022)

Shaun Bailey: In my hon. Friend’s assessment, because we cannot get that assurance —I hope the right hon. Member for Wolverhampton South East (Mr McFadden) is listening—what does he estimate Labour’s tax bombshell to be for our constituents in the west midlands, because it sounds as if there is definitely one incoming?

Public Bill Committee: Financial Services and Markets Bill: New Clause 16 - Regulators’ immunity from civil damages action (3 Nov 2022)

Shaun Bailey: I fear I will probably repeat what my hon. Friends have just articulated so clearly. I agree that the principle of the new clause, as articulated by the hon. Member for West Dunbartonshire, is interesting. As my hon. Friend the Member for Hastings and Rye pointed out, many have been calling for such action for some time. Clearly, the running theme of these contributions, which was expertly...

Public Bill Committee: Financial Services and Markets Bill: New Clause 9 - Updated Green Finance Strategy (3 Nov 2022)

Shaun Bailey: The Minister’s comments about the green finance index are positive and I know his commitment to that agenda. He said we will do more. Will he reassure me that the benefits will be spread regionally and that he will ensure that the investment goes into areas that can turbocharge that agenda? I made this point earlier, but will he reassure me that he is committed to exploring the idea of...

Public Bill Committee: Financial Services and Markets Bill: New Clause 7 - FCA duty to report on mutual and co-operative business models (3 Nov 2022)

Shaun Bailey: My hon. Friend the Minister will know that, in addition to that, the FCA regularly engages with mutuals and co-operatives. In March, a chief executive officer letter was circulated around building societies to remind them of their duties towards customers. That is in addition to the statutory provisions. Perhaps the Minister could briefly comment on the additional engagement the FCA has with...
