Protection from Redundancy (Pregnancy and Family Leave) Bill (21 Oct 2022)

Shaun Bailey: My hon. Friend raises a good point, and I was hoping to touch on the transitional period later. We know how important it is to have the opportunity to transition back into the workplace and get back into the flow of things. Going through a life-changing event such as having a child changes the whole dynamic in someone’s life. I think that window is a really important opportunity for them. I...

Protection from Redundancy (Pregnancy and Family Leave) Bill (21 Oct 2022)

Shaun Bailey: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. Why would someone want to join such an organisation, having seen how it operates and what its practices are? Talented individuals who know they have something to bring to the table, and know their worth, particularly in the climate we are in, are going to vote with their feet, are they not? And they should. They will be empowered to know that they can now...

Protection from Redundancy (Pregnancy and Family Leave) Bill (21 Oct 2022)

Shaun Bailey: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. To reiterate her point, I certainly do not want to give the impression that I am typecasting every business in that regard. As I have said, many businesses are getting this right and are going above and beyond—but that should not be above and beyond; it should be the standard. I return to the idea that not every family is black and white, with 2.4...

Protection from Redundancy (Pregnancy and Family Leave) Bill (21 Oct 2022)

Shaun Bailey: I thank my right hon. and gallant Friend for that powerful intervention, to which I cannot add any more. He is right that it can be a traumatic experience. The Bill also seeks to address when someone has a miscarriage or loses a baby, which is a horrific time in the lives of both parents. It is important to consider how we support someone who has gone through that, particularly a woman, who...

Public Bill Committee: Financial Services and Markets Bill: Examination of Witnesses (19 Oct 2022)

Shaun Bailey: I am chair of the all-party parliamentary group on financial resilience.

Prayers - [Mr Speaker in the Chair] : The Growth Plan (23 Sep 2022)

Shaun Bailey: I welcome my right hon. Friend to his position. As he will know from his previous portfolio, highly energy intensive industries have been acutely affected by rising energy prices. I welcome the Government’s intervention on energy prices, but what we need in the black country, particularly in our advanced manufacturing and metals industries—this point was stressed yesterday to my right...

Tributes to Her Late Majesty the Queen (10 Sep 2022)

Shaun Bailey: In forming my comments today, I thought it would be nigh on impossible to articulate what Her late Majesty the Queen meant to me and my constituents and to right hon. and hon. Members across the House, but as I have sat here today, it has been clear to me that her legacy has inspired us to be able to articulate exactly what she meant. For my constituents in the Black Country she was that...

Business of the House (8 Sep 2022)

Shaun Bailey: It is great to see my right hon. Friend in her place as she takes up her position; I warmly congratulate her. Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council was awarded £20 million by the Government for a family hub. We all know that a person’s start in life can, unfortunately, still dictate where they go. We need to change that, and a family hub can do that. I am working alongside local...

Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (18 Jul 2022)

Shaun Bailey: Does my hon. Friend agree that the laugh we just heard from Opposition Members shows their utter contempt for working-class people such as him and me, both from council estates ourselves, who know it was the Conservative Government who gave us the opportunity to be here now?

Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (18 Jul 2022)

Shaun Bailey: The past few hours has been—well—an experience, hasn’t it really? There are two elements to a confidence motion. The first is a lack of confidence in the Government, and the second is the alternative to that Government. I have lived under that alternative, because I live in Sandwell—Labour-controlled Sandwell, socialist Sandwell. Let us take a journey to what life would be like under...

Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (18 Jul 2022)

Shaun Bailey: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker. As a point of clarity, my understanding is that they are all members of the Labour party. It is the Labour party that controlled that local authority. They are all comrades in arms together. Labour Members could have intervened at any point. They promised that they would get grip on this.

Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (18 Jul 2022)

Shaun Bailey: No, I will not. Labour promised that it would get a grip on this, and it did not. So when Labour Members sit there and talk about standards in public life, I tell them to come to Sandwell. Come to Sandwell. If Members want to see the horror that is the alternative, we can show them.

Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (18 Jul 2022)

Shaun Bailey: I am grateful to my hon. Friend because he is right: we are scalping Labour councillors all over the place. As one lady put it to me on the doorstep during the local elections, “I have been Labour all my life. I am Labour through and through, but I cannot vote for that shower.” The truth of the matter is that, when we look at the alternative, it is horrific. I also want to touch on what...

Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (18 Jul 2022)

Shaun Bailey: Further to that point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. The occupants of the Chair have consistently talked about temperance of language. I do not think it fits within the ruling given from the Chair to say that my hon. Friend the Member for Heywood and Middleton (Chris Clarkson), as an LGBT man, should be ashamed to defend this Government. Could you just clarify to the House whether that is...

Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (18 Jul 2022)

Shaun Bailey: rose—

Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (18 Jul 2022)

Shaun Bailey: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. The Chair has been very clear at times about being conscious of language. From my understanding, the Chancellor has denied that accusation. Perhaps you could guide the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) on how to temper his language.

Business of the House (14 Jul 2022)

Shaun Bailey: May I start by wishing everyone a bostin’ Black Country Day, as we celebrate the beating heart of the west midlands? I come here today with some frustration about an issue that I raised with my right hon. Friend’s predecessor regarding onerous clauses in council house tenants’ contracts and leases that said they would be evicted if they criticised the Labour Administration in Sandwell....

Home Department: Antisocial Behaviour (20 Jun 2022)

Shaun Bailey: What steps her Department is taking to tackle antisocial behaviour.

Home Department: Antisocial Behaviour (20 Jun 2022)

Shaun Bailey: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for her response. Unfortunately, antisocial behaviour continues to blight my residents in Wednesbury, Oldbury and Tipton, nowhere more so than in the Laburnum Road area of Tipton which has seen a spike in reports. Will my hon. Friend touch a little more on the cross-working that she is doing, particularly with stakeholders in the Black Country, such as West...

Public Bill Committee: Online Safety Bill: Clause 18 - Duties about complaints procedures (9 Jun 2022)

Shaun Bailey: It is a pleasure to see you in the Chair, Ms Rees, and to make my first contribution in Committee—it will be a brief one. It is great to follow the hon. Member for Aberdeen North, and I listened intently to my right hon. Friend the Member for Basingstoke, from whom I have learned so much having sat with her in numerous Committees over the past two years. I will speak to clause 18 stand...
