Parliamentary questions

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?"
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..."
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?"
Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Sajid Javid MP, The Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government on 27.03.2018
"During the local government funding settlement statement, I asked about local government funding, and the response that I got from the Chief Secretary to the Treasury was that local government had plenty of reserves. She pointed out that it had £23 billion of reserves that could be used. First, has that set a dangerous tone to local authorities that they should be spending their reserves? Secondly, does the report suggest that the privatisation ..."
Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Elizabeth Truss MP, The Chief Secretary to the Treasury on 27.02.2018
"My own council of Brighton and Hove has had to make £52 million-worth of cuts in three years, despite superb Labour leadership in the city. With one of the Minister’s own Tory councils going bust, will the Chancellor finally commit to properly funding local government in tomorrow’s local government finance settlement?"
Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Graham Stuart MP, the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for International Trade on 22.02.2018
"With no prosecutions leading to convictions since 2011, with no register of arms brokers—as the USA, Canada, Germany and France have—and with the Government selling weapons and spy equipment to eight human rights abusers, how can the Government continue to claim that we have the strongest arms export regime in the world, or are they just not implementing the rules?"
Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Penny Mordaunt MP, The Secretary of State for International Development on 20.02.2018
"Following the International Development Committee’s hearing this morning, a number of areas for immediate action were raised. One was about charities’ ability to do a Disclosure and Barring Service check—formerly a Criminal Records Bureau check—for all their workers. Will the Secretary of State take immediate action to ensure that they can do that by including them as a regulated class of profession? Secondly, we were told today that Inte..."
Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to David Lidington MP, The Minister for the Cabinet Office and Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster on 10.01.2018
"The Government have withheld a dozen documents relating to the Government’s European policy in the early 1990s. What are they trying to hide? What embarrassment is the Tory party trying to cover up? Will the Minister release those documents?"
Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Greg Hands MP, the Minister for Trade Policy on 23.11.2017
"Given that countries such as Nigeria and Uganda have refused to sign the economic partnership agreements because they do not believe that they are beneficial and in their long-term interest, how does the Secretary of State intend to address those issues, and is he considering GSP—the generalised scheme of preferences—or GSP plus?"
Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Jesse Norman MP, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Transport on 19.10.2017
"What progress is being made on setting up low-emission zones in various parts of the country? How are the Government ensuring that there is a workable national framework for those zones?"
Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Theresa May MP, The Prime Minister on 11.10.2017
"Prime Minister, last week you announced that you would fund 25,000 extra socially rented homes over five years. The waiting list in Brighton is already that. Along with Brighton, my other local authority, Lewes District Council, is wanting to build more council houses, but your policies will not help them, because they are limited not by the open market, but by the Government’s arbitrary cap on borrowing and financing against housing stock. Wil..."
Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to David Davis MP, The Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union on 5.09.2017
"Will the Secretary of State acknowledge that the delayed process of the negotiations means that universities and other educational institutions are left on tenterhooks in respect of long-term research programmes and exchange programmes? They do not know whether we will still be part of Horizon 2020 or the Erasmus Plus programme and bids have to be in for the next round at the end of this month. Will the Secretary of State give a commitment that t..."
Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Nick Gibb MP, the Minister for School Standards on 4.07.2017
"Will the Minister stop using this Orwellian double-speak about an increase in the budget? We know what we are talking about. In real terms, and per pupil, the budget has not increased in the last seven years, teachers have had a £3-per-hour cut in their wages and morale is at rock bottom. Will the Minister at least admit that we need urgent action to increase funding and reverse the cuts that have already taken place?"
Parliamentary Question
from Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Theresa May MP, The Prime Minister on 26.06.2017
"At the Council, did the Prime Minister manage to raise the issue of the Erasmus+ programme and our continuing work in it? In particular, the deadline for the Erasmus+ grants is October. It takes six months for those grants to be awarded, and another year sometimes for them to be enacted. Will she ensure that any academic, student or young person who is awarded an Erasmus programme is able to come here without additional visa burdens?"
