Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Nadhim Zahawi MP, The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Education on 10.09.2018
"I have a number of autistic children in my constituency who are unable to access proper education. I have a six-year-old who can only attend one hour a day. I have another who can only attend a classroom with 30 children and the nearest provision is 20 miles away. When I speak to heads, they want to provide support, but they do not have the funding for SEND. When will the Secretary of State ensure that children with autism can get ring-fenced funding and schools can provide properly for them?"

Organised Crime: Young People’s Safety

Despite the danger of sounding like a broken record, it will be no surprise to colleagues that I intend to speak about what has happened to youth services since then, and the problems that that has led to in our communities. Despite the Government’s plan, a 2016 study—these are the latest...

Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Sir Alan Duncan MP, the Minister for Europe and the Americas on 24.07.2018
"I want to thank the Minister for the Middle East, whom I met last week, with Lord Glasman, to talk about northern Syria in particular. It was a very fruitful meeting. We talked about the importance of getting medical attention to Kurdish fighters, particularly here in the UK. Will the Minister follow up and make sure that the Kurds are involved in any deal made around Idlib and Syria generally? They have not been included in some of the talks so far."

Homelessness among Refugees

I am not surprised by the statistics, since asylum seekers are not allowed to work and are forced to rely on state support of just £36.95 a week. I would be unable to live on that and I suspect that many people present would be unable to live a decent life on that, either. When claiming asylum,...

Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Caroline Nokes MP, The Minister for Immigration on 16.07.2018
"Offshore wind projects such as Rampion, off the coast of my constituency, should provide an opportunity for good jobs in Britain, but the Home Office is continuing to provide immigration rule waivers to allow crews from outside the European economic area to work here. Why is the Home Office undermining good maritime jobs off our coast?"

Equal Franchise Act 1928

As a campaigner for women’s suffrage, Margaret was part of a broader labour movement with other working-class suffragettes, fighting for all women to have equal rights with men. This year, of course, marks 90 years of the equal franchise, but it is also the centenary of the unequal franchise for...

Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Joseph Johnson MP, the Minister of State, Department for Transport on 3.07.2018
"It feels almost like groundhog day. Last night, again, it took me three hours to travel back to Brighton. What does the Transport Salaried Staffs Association, the union that represents staff—and I refer to my registered interest in that regard—say? It says that 95% of staff now face aggression from passengers whom they are unable to give any information, because the management does not give them any information, and 82% say that they have no trust in the management of the franchise any more...."
Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Penny Mordaunt MP, the Minister for Women and Equalities on 3.07.2018
"Like others, I welcome the action plan. The weekend before last I was delighted to see that the British mission in New York had a float at Pride, and I am pleased to have taken part in Pride with the British mission over a number of years.
The survey says that 40% of LGBT+ people have experienced hate crime and that nine in 10 did not report those serious crimes. In Brighton and Hove we have an LGBT safety forum that, as a first stop, does much of the important work of reporting, particul..."
Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Alistair Burt MP, the Minister for the Middle East on 11.06.2018
"The Minister is of course right to condemn the jihadi Houthis, but will an attack on the port not push them into the city, causing far more deaths? Will the British Government draw a red line under this and ensure that no UK personnel service these weapons?"

Youth (Services and Provisions)

It enhances the readiness for learning in the classroom and learning in life, but it does not only help young people in the classroom; it also helps them to develop the skills and attitudes that are needed for the employment about which the Prime Minister was so boastful today, and, of course, for...

Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Theresa May MP, The Prime Minister on 6.06.2018
"Last year, a quarter of young people thought about suicide, and one in nine attempted suicide. Young people are three times more likely to be lonely than older people. Knife crime is up, and gang crime is up. There are fewer opportunities for young people than ever before—68% of our youth services have been cut since 2010—with young people having nowhere to go, nothing to do and no one to speak to. Is it now time for a statutory youth service, and will the Prime Minister support my ten-minut..."
Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Chris Grayling MP, the Secretary of State for Transport on 4.06.2018
"If someone conspired to break into my garage and steal or immobilise my car, they would face the full force of the law. The Secretary of State’s Department has conspired with the railway companies in an incompetent manner to change the timetables, and despite repeated warnings from the Opposition, the companies went ahead with it. When will they face the full force of having their franchises stripped from them, or when will he be brave enough to face up to this and resign?"
Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Alistair Burt MP, the Minister for the Middle East on 23.05.2018
"When the International Development Committee visited the refugee camps, we were told that non-governmental organisations had identified land that could be made available to them for the safety of the Rohingya refugees. What representations have the Government made to the Government of Bangladesh to ensure that that land is released, and that refugees are not put on an unsuitable island?"

Tenant Fees Bill

I have some news for the Conservative Members, however, because we had a new manifesto in 2017, which was even more popular than our 2015 manifesto: it led to their losing seats and to our gaining them. The 2017 manifesto went even further: “Labour will make new three-year tenancies the norm,...

Parliamentary Question
Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Nick Gibb MP, Secretary of State for Education on 21.05.2018
"I'd like to ask the Secretary of State for Education, what plans his Department has to ensure that relationships and sex education is (a) impartial and (b) LGBT-inclusive in all types of schools?"
by Lloyd on 17.05.18

International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia Speech

I can marry whomever I want to, if anyone would want to marry me, of course—applications on a postcard. I can date a person in the style that I want, including online, and of course, consensually I can sleep with who I want without fear of persecution. However, the same cannot be said in many...

Parliamentary Question
Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Joseph Johnson, Secretary of State for Transport on 16.05.2018
"I'd like to ask the Secretary of State for Transport, whether it remains the Government's policy to roll-out the 26-30 year railcard scheme throughout the UK?"
Parliamentary Question
Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Graham Stuart MP, Secretary of State for International Trade on 14.05.2018
"I'd like to ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, what steps the Government is taking to ensure that UK businesses trading with Iran are protected from the imposition of US extraterritorial sanctions in relation to that country?"
