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 ..."
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..."
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..."
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 t..."

Ian Austin

It was in the chamber during a debate on the latest bombing of Syria that Ian Austin MP asked me “what do you know, newbie?” and told me that I should “go back to Brighton with Momentum” who he said have “never really ever been Labour”. It was unfortunately with little surprise then...

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?"

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?"
Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Boris Johnson MP, the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs on 9.05.2018
"First the Paris agreement and now the Iran deal—does this show that the USA’s signature is not worth the paper it is written on? Our Government must show that we honour our agreements. We must particularly protect British interests and British companies against forthcoming US sanctions that will affect us. Will the Secretary of State build an alliance with the remaining partners in the Iran deal, whose collective GDP is twice the USA’s, and..."

Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [Lords]

We know that this has been happening thanks to the investigative work of Amnesty International and other non-governmental organisations. In 2014, Ukrainian-based S-Profit Ltd, which was registered here in the UK, was named by the South Sudanese Government as brokering a £44 million small arms...

Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Mrs Heather Wheeler MP, The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government on 30.04.2018
"We are facing a housing crisis in both quantity and quality. The Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee outlined that one way to solve it would be selective licensing. Brighton and Hove put in an application in January, but five months later we are still waiting for the Secretary of State’s approval for the scheme. Will he make it one of his first acts in office to sign off the scheme, so that we can get on with improving our housi..."
Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Harriett Baldwin MP, The Minister of State, Department for International Development on 24.04.2018
"The UK is not meant to sell weapons to countries when there is a clear risk that they will kill innocent civilians or break international humanitarian law. We sell 50% of all our weapons to Saudi Arabia, and 61% of all the killings have been the result of Saudi and coalition airstrikes. What is the Government’s red line on breaking international humanitarian law? When will we stop licensing the killing of innocent civilians?"
by Lloyd on 21.04.18

Erasmus + Debate

Mr Speaker, I beg to move. That this house urges the government to negotiate continued access to the Erasmus plus program and all its successors schemes beyond 2020. Almost two years on from the EU referendum, the government has not yet answered key questions: such as how will we continue to...
