Canlyniadau 1–20 o 18523 ar gyfer speaker:Jim Shannon

Solar Supply Chains (16 Ebr 2024)

Jim Shannon: The Minister referred to 55 companies, and I presume they include companies from Northern Ireland. It is important that we have a policy that affects all of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland so they are all accountable.

Solar Supply Chains (16 Ebr 2024)

Jim Shannon: I commend the hon. Lady for bringing forward the debate. We spoke earlier today. She always leads from the front and I congratulate her on doing that on this important issue, which hon. Members may not know much about. Does she agree that any hint of forced labour means this supply chain should not ever have Government backing and funding? We must hold ourselves to the highest standard on...

Digital Skills and Careers (16 Ebr 2024)

Jim Shannon: I thank the hon. Lady for securing the debate; she always brings interesting and sensible debates to Westminster Hall and elsewhere. From the time I have known her, she has always been astute and assiduous on these issues, and I thank her for that. We should teach the importance of having sound digital skills, especially for most modern jobs, which require that we understand information and...

Health Services: Cross-border Co-operation (16 Ebr 2024)

Jim Shannon: The Northern Ireland-Republic of Ireland cross-border initiative was officially closed in December 2020 due to the withdrawal of EU funding. It was a scheme that many of my constituents bought into and did well out of, getting their operations down south before coming back to Northern Ireland, thereby skipping long waiting lists. The hon. Lady is absolutely right to ask for better...

Human Rights: Consular Services — [Dame Caroline Dinenage in the Chair] (16 Ebr 2024)

Jim Shannon: It is a pleasure to speak in this debate, Dame Caroline. I commend the hon. Member for Edinburgh West (Christine Jardine) for setting the scene so well. She has been a spokesperson for those in difficulties and always outlines those cases. Perhaps her journalistic history has given her a flavour for those things. It does not matter—the main thing is that the hon. Lady presents the case...

Human Rights: Consular Services — [Dame Caroline Dinenage in the Chair] (16 Ebr 2024)

Jim Shannon: I certainly do, and I am pleased that the right hon. Gentleman intervened to underline that issue. I was going to mention Jimmy Lai; the key issue is that he is a British passport holder and does not hold a Chinese passport. He deserves and should get the consular assistance that all British citizens would get, including any one of us who holds a British passport. The hon. Member for...

Human Rights: Consular Services — [Dame Caroline Dinenage in the Chair] (16 Ebr 2024)

Jim Shannon: I thank the hon. Lady for reminding me. I could remember the name Kevin but not his last name—my apologies. I thank the hon. Lady for filling in the gaps in my memory. She is absolutely right: it should not be down to trusts to fill the gap. That particular trust has done excellent work in Northern Ireland and in the Republic as well. Its generosity, commitment and work have been...

Tobacco and Vapes Bill (16 Ebr 2024)

Jim Shannon: First of all, I commend the Secretary of State and the Government for bringing forward this legislation. I support it because I believe it is right, but I have been contacted by vaping groups. My right hon. Friend the Member for Belfast East (Gavin Robinson) and I met some last week. They sent me a small comment, and I want to ask the Secretary of State a quick question about it, so that we...

Rail Manufacturing: Job Losses (16 Ebr 2024)

Jim Shannon: I thank the Minister for his answers; I do not think anybody in the House could doubt his commitment or that of the Government to improving things, and we thank them for that. What is the Government’s strategy for supporting manufacturing companies throughout the United Kingdom to make improvements to attract business and sustain contracts? Will the Government commit to ensuring that all...

Citizens’ Assemblies and Local Democracy (16 Ebr 2024)

Jim Shannon: I congratulate the hon. Lady on bringing forward this debate. I always do research on these matters. Northern Ireland is fortunate to have its own citizens’ assembly with 75 members, which passed three high-level resolutions that made recommendations on the core themes of social care, change and strong leadership. Is the hon. Lady aware of Northern Ireland’s citizens’ assembly? Does she...

Food Waste and Food Distribution — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (16 Ebr 2024)

Jim Shannon: I thank the hon. Member for Stoke-on-Trent Central (Jo Gideon) for leading today’s debate. It is estimated that total food waste in the UK amounted to 10.7 million tonnes in 2021. Most food waste comes from households, equating to some 60%, followed by farms, at 15%, manufacturing, at 13%, and retail, at 2%. It is clear that we need to do more as a collective to tackle our food waste...

Food Waste and Food Distribution — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (16 Ebr 2024)

Jim Shannon: Absolutely, and that is the point that I am trying to make. I said to the Minister before the sitting that I do not expect him to give us all the answers. We have the answers individually and in our communities. I am thankful that I have a very frugal wife who is careful with our grocery and shopping lists, but I understand the pressure on young families, who are busier now than I could ever...

Energy Security and Net Zero: Floating Offshore Wind (16 Ebr 2024)

Jim Shannon: I thank the Secretary of State for her response. There is always a competition. As I represent Strangford, the fishing sector is very important to me. It is important that we have floating offshore wind projects, but also to ensure that fishing can be sustainable. In these discussions, can she confirm that the interests of the fishing industry and representation from the fishing industry are...

Rights of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Gender Non-conforming Young People (15 Ebr 2024)

Jim Shannon: I commend the hon. Gentleman for bringing forward this issue, which we touched on in the statement earlier today. Does he agree that we have a duty to protect children of all backgrounds from the lobbying groups that abuse the system to promote a harmful ideology? For example, multinational companies such as Starbucks have supported charities such as Mermaids. It is time that those types of...

Cass Review (15 Ebr 2024)

Jim Shannon: You are most kind, Madam Deputy Speaker. I know that I have now caught the Secretary of State’s eye. May I thank the Secretary of State for her fortitude and determination, and Dr Cass for all her endeavours? Both ladies—honourable ladies, I believe—have been incredibly impressive and capable. We should be taking on board Dr Cass’s report in Northern Ireland. Indeed, I will make it my...

Iran-Israel Update (15 Ebr 2024)

Jim Shannon: First, I thank the Prime Minister very much for his decisive action in support of Israel, and I thank our world-class Royal Air Force for preventing further loss of life. Just last week, I had an opportunity to be in Israel to visit the kibbutz where the people—innocent Jews—were murdered. I went to the site of the Nova music festival, where over 1,000 Israelis were murdered, and I spoke...

Home Department: Asylum Seekers Accommodated in Hotels (15 Ebr 2024)

Jim Shannon: Mr Speaker, may I pass on the condolences of myself and my party on the death of your father? We know you loved your father, and we know that your father loved you. When it comes to reducing the number of asylum seekers, I want to suggest one option to the Minister that we could certainly do in Strangford. For those people who are in hotels, there are companies in my constituency that wish to...
