Canlyniadau 121–140 o 1551 ar gyfer speaker:Jim McMahon

Environmental Protection (18 Gor 2023)

Jim McMahon: I will make some progress. Since we presented that Bill to the House for debate, 40,000 sewage dumps have taken place. Labour’s plan would have ensured that polluters pay the moment they start dumping sewage, not months or years after the event, with investigations and lawyers needed to make a ruling. As such, I ask the Secretary of State whether her Department has considered the potential...

Environmental Protection (18 Gor 2023)

Jim McMahon: I am very proud of Labour’s record of leaving the cleanest air and water since before the industrial revolution. What the data says—dump by dump, outlet by outlet, beach by beach, lake by lake, river by river—is that, year on year, the problem is getting worse under the Tories, not better. It has all been sanctioned by the Tories.

Environmental Protection (18 Gor 2023)

Jim McMahon: I will make some progress, if I may. This is all about whether families can live decent and fulfilled lives in the places where we live, where we work and where we holiday together—where families create memories, forge bonds and strengthen relationships by enjoying the beauty that our country has to offer. It is moments like those that make life worth living. In the middle of the Tory cost...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Sewage: Waste Disposal (13 Gor 2023)

Jim McMahon: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, with reference to the oral contribution of the Minister for Food, Farming and Fisheries of 6 July 2023, Official Report, column 921, if she will publish all water company storm overflow plans that she has received in full.

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Import Controls: Supply Chains ( 7 Gor 2023)

Jim McMahon: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, with reference to his Department's guidance entitled The Border Target Operating Model: Draft for Feedback, published on 5 April 2023, what steps his Department plans to take to implement the proposed changes without disrupting supply chains.

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions ( 6 Gor 2023)

Jim McMahon: The Tories are sinking the water industry. Since Tory privatisation, water companies have racked up debts of over £60 billion. Every day, we see 800 sewage dumps and lose over 3 billion litres of water in leaks, and what is the biggest leak of all? The £72 billion paid out to shareholders. Now Thames Water is on the edge as the money dries up. Can the Secretary of State tell the House if...

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions ( 6 Gor 2023)

Jim McMahon: Like the industry itself, that response does not hold water. People know that Thames Water is not an isolated case: five companies are rated as being of concern by the Government’s own financial regulator. Last weekend, I wrote to the Environment Secretary setting out six key tests to safeguard bill payers, workers and taxpayers from paying the price of a failing water industry. Will she...

Water Industry: Financial Resilience (28 Meh 2023)

Jim McMahon: (Urgent Question): To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs if she will make a statement on the financial resilience of the water industry.

Water Industry: Financial Resilience (28 Meh 2023)

Jim McMahon: Thank you, Mr Speaker, for granting the urgent question, but it is a concern that the Secretary of State did not proactively make a statement to the House on an issue of such importance. Indeed, where is the Secretary of State? One of the largest water companies in Britain is potentially going to go to the wall, and the Secretary of State is missing in action. It was clear to anyone looking...

Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) (21 Meh 2023)

Jim McMahon: I beg to move, That— (1) On Wednesday 12 July 2023: (a) Standing Order No. 14(1) (which provides that government business shall have precedence at every sitting save as provided in that order) shall not apply; (b) any proceedings governed by this order may be proceeded with until any hour, though opposed, and shall not be interrupted; (c) the Speaker may not propose the question on the...

Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) (21 Meh 2023)

Jim McMahon: It is hard not to agree with that position. Members have a choice today. The benefit of our democracy is that Members get to cast their vote, and declare their view and their representation on behalf of their constituents. There is nothing in the Bill that Conservatives should not support. It was in the Conservative manifesto. It is letter by letter, word by word and paragraph by paragraph...

Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) (21 Meh 2023)

Jim McMahon: I thank my hon. Friend for her intervention—it is an absolutely accurate interpretation. I was at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home in her constituency when news came that the Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill was being ditched. The irony was not lost on a charity that campaigns and works so hard for our animals. Labour has always placed animal welfare high on our list of policy priorities,...

Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) (21 Meh 2023)

Jim McMahon: That begs the question of why on earth the Government are so bashful about bringing forward new powers and freedoms as a result of us leaving the European Union. Surely we should be embracing them—bringing them forward for the benefit of our much-loved animals—but they have not done so, even on an issue that is not controversial across the House. I assume and hope that there is support to...

Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) (21 Meh 2023)

Jim McMahon: I will make a bit of progress first, if that is okay. In the end, it is those promises that—if we are not careful and they are not kept—undermine the very foundation of our democracy. Let us be clear: at the last general election, every single Conservative MP stood on the platform of a pledge to voters that they would deliver the priorities subsequently set out in the Animal Welfare (Kept...

Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) (21 Meh 2023)

Jim McMahon: The Act certainly has that potential, except for the fact that the committee has not even been set up yet, so let us make some progress on that. On a matter of principle—by the way, I do take at face value the compassion for animals, which we do share across the House—the question is, how are we going to get there? How are we going to increase the protections for the animals that we all...

Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) (21 Meh 2023)

Jim McMahon: I am going to make a bit of progress, but I will take interventions a bit later. The current Prime Minister, who during his leadership campaign last summer promised he would keep the Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill, now seems to have killed it. It did not have to be this way because—let us be clear—there are always choices to be made. Let us be clear about the choices that have been...

Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) (21 Meh 2023)

Jim McMahon: To be absolutely clear, this is not the Labour party framing our own motion and own draft Bill, and bringing it to the House and trying to bounce the Conservative Government. This is a Government manifesto commitment and a Government Bill—word for word, sentence by sentence. There is nothing to disagree with. Let us be clear as well that it passed on Second Reading. It is not as though we...

Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) (21 Meh 2023)

Jim McMahon: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker. You made that point in response to the point of order, and the right hon. Member for Ludlow (Philip Dunne) will know that I do not have the facility to come in on a point of order, but I can and I will cover that in my speech. To be clear, and I have been clear: this is a Government Bill. There is no other Bill to publish—it does not exist. The only Bill that...

Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) (21 Meh 2023)

Jim McMahon: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. Let us be clear about some of the tensions here. The fear was never that the Labour party would vote down protections for animals; our history and legacy is about protecting animal welfare. The real fear is that the protections that we and many on the Government Benches believe should be in place are seen by some on those Benches as red tape and bureaucracy...

Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) (21 Meh 2023)

Jim McMahon: I will give way first to my hon. Friend the Member for Weaver Vale.
