Parliamentary questions

Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Keir Starmer MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union on 19.12.2018
"Does my right hon. and learned Friend agree that the clock is now ticking and the Government need seriously to start to think about extending article 50 so that they can send in some decent negotiators to negotiate a deal? Or, we can put this back to the British people in an election."
Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Mr Jeremy Hunt MP, The Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs on 4.12.2018
"UK-EU diplomatic co-operation has been part of the successful Iran deal for the joint comprehensive plan of action and must of course continue post Brexit. The Secretary of State’s tweet yesterday cited the JCPOA and resolution 2231 in demanding that Iran cease testing missiles. However, the missile ban was deliberately excluded from the JCPOA and was not mentioned in resolution 2231. Is it now UK policy to dismiss the JCPOA and diverge from EU..."
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 10.12.2019
"Last week, Southern Landlords Association filed for judicial review on selective licensing in Brighton. The Government’s response was to revoke the licence to regulate the private sector. This is not the first judicial review to derail selective licensing. In respect of the particular issue I am working on with the Minister, is it now not time to review the way selective licensing works and to stop judicial reviews, particularly vexatious ones ..."
Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Mr Ben Wallace MP, The Minister for Security and Economic Crime on 29.10.2018
"Organised crime often leads to bad drugs on our streets, and one way to stop that is through drug testing in festivals. The Minister agreed that he would write to police forces about the legality of that. What is the response?"
Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Theresa May MP, The Prime Minister on 22.10.2018
"The Prime Minister is keen to avoid a permanent customs union and single market arrangement, despite some Brexiteers promising the exact same benefits. If she is unable to achieve the exact same benefits, is it time to let the people take back control either through a general election or a third referendum—after 1975 and 2016—on this issue?"
Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Mrs Theresa May MP, The Prime Minister on 15.10.2018
"The Prime Minister has come here today and failed to outline how her backstop is going to meet the impossible conditions of the ERG and the DUP. She is just going to act as their fall guy, is she not? Why does she not put herself out of her contortionist misery and put this question to a general election or to a third referendum, with remain as an option?"
Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Mrs Sarah Newton MP, Minister for Disabled People, Health and Work on 15.10.2018
"I had a constituent with severe learning impairment who, being unable to read the letters she received about the transition to PIP, had her DLA payments suspended. How can the Secretary of State justify a managed migration for disabled people when the Government cannot even get the basics right of communicating with people? "
Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Penny Mordaunt MP, The Secretary of State for International Development on 9.10.2018
"This morning, I searched in vain for any content in the Secretary of State’s leadership bid—I mean, her speech. The only content that I found was the statement that she was going to start a national conversation. Her party has only just successfully lobbied the OECD to change the rules to allow the billions invested in CDC to be counted as aid upfront, and now she says that she wants another change. May I, for the purpose of clarity, ask whet..."
Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Victoria Atkins MP, The Minister for Women on 13.09.2018
"Does the Minister agree that we need to do more to help our LGBT friends around the world, particularly those who are seeking asylum? Will she therefore condemn the Home Office’s approach at the moment? It is deporting one of my constituents back to Venezuela after he has applied for asylum and married someone here and lived in Britain for three years. The Home Office still says that Venezuela is a safe place for an LGBT person to live. It even..."
Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Mel Stride MP, The Financial Secretary to the Treasury on 11.09.2018
"Small and medium-sized businesses are the lifeblood of the economies of local communities, but with 60% of small businesses with no succession plan after their founders retire, what are the Government doing to ensure that employee ownership is one of the options going forward to keep businesses going?"
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 fun..."
Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Harriet Baldwin, Minister of State (Department for International Development) on 9.07.2019
"To ask the Secretary of State for International Development, with reference to the recent State of the World Food Security and Nutrition report findings that global hunger has increased for the fourth year running, what steps the Government is taking to (a) help end this trend and (b) help ensure that sustainable development goal two is achieved."
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 ..."
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?"
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?"
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..."
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?"
