Ian Mearns John McDonnell

That this House welcomes the fuel poverty amendment moved by Lord O'Neill of Clackmannan in the House of Lords to the Energy Bill, seeking to retain a legal commitment to end the scandal of cold homes; recognises that the best way of doing so is in setting minimum energy efficiency standards that have to be met in the worst of the UK's housing stock, and within specified target dates; believes it is essential that such an objective remains in primary rather than secondary legislation; and calls on hon. Members and Members of the House of Lords to add their support to this initiative.

Andrew Stephenson
*12
John McDonnell

That this House welcomes the commitment from Sam Laidlow, Chief Executive of Centrica to give up his bonus this year; believes that accepting a six or seven figure bonus whilst putting up fuel bills by up to 10 per cent for customers would be unreasonable and highly questionable; and calls on the chief executives of E.ON, Npower, Scottish Power, SSE and EDF Energy to make the same commitment to waive their bonuses in light of the price rises announced by their respective companies.

John McDonnell

That this House applauds Mexico's congress for passing a bill to impose a levy of eight per cent on high calorie foods and a tax of one peso (£0.04) per litre on soft drinks to tackle the country's growing obesity problem; notes that it is estimated that by 2025, five million people in the UK will have diabetes because of rapidly rising numbers of overweight and obese people; further notes that a 20 per cent tax on sugary drinks proposed by the UK's Academy of Medical Royal Colleges would cut the UK's obesity rate by 1.3 per cent, resulting in approximately 180,000 fewer adults with a body mass index of 30 or more; and calls on Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer to investigate the feasibility of imposing such a tax and the revenue that would be gained from it.

Mr Clive Betts
Martin Vickers
Simon Hughes
Bob Blackman
*12
Gordon Henderson John McDonnell

That this House believes local government in England should become ever more independent from central control; welcomes the historic coming together of the Core Cities Group, the Mayor of London and London councils to campaign as City Centred for fiscal devolution and greater freedoms to England's great cities; notes that these cities are the engines of the UK's economy and have bold ambitions for growth that would bring benefits across the country calls for funding reform to better allow the cities to invest and grow; further notes their concern that 95 per cent of all tax raised in these cities currently is sent to the Treasury; understands that their proposals will be cost-neutral at the point of devolution and not impact on funding for other parts of the country; and calls on all parties that aspire to Government to take action to progress the proposals as part of their localism agenda.

Glenda Jackson
*8
John McDonnell

That this House notes the need to protect the Green Belt which is made up of undeveloped land that surrounds urban areas; pays tribute to Ebenezer Howard who first proposed the Green Belt in his 1898 book, Garden Cities of Tomorrow, and whose day job was as a Hansard Reporter in Parliament; further notes that the Metropolitan Green Belt was proposed by the Greater London Regional Planning Committee in 1935, was enacted by Parliament in 1938 and was extended to other parts of the UK in 1955; acknowledges the need to build new homes; further notes that these new homes should first be built on brown field land such as the Servis Site in Darlaston, Walsall, which has planning permission for 124 homes; further considers that the practice of land banking should be ended and that those areas of land that already have planning permission should be developed before new areas are used; further notes the National Planning Policy Framework, published in March 2012, and the section titled Protecting Green Belt land; calls on the Government to commit to protecting the Green Belt from development and urban sprawl; and further calls on the Government to attach the appropriate weight on planning grounds, balancing the need for housing with a protection of the countryside preserved for future generations.

692 CONSUMER CHOICE IN GLUCOSAMINE PRODUCTS 7:11:13
Austin Mitchell
Sir Peter Bottomley
Kelvin Hopkins
Mark Durkan
Jim Shannon
John McDonnell
*7
Mr Gordon Marsden

That this House notes the longstanding position of the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency that depending on the way in which glucosamine products are formulated and marketed, they may correctly be considered in some cases as food products and in others as medicinal products with a licence; appreciates that this approach has ensured consumer access to a wide range of safe and popular glucosamine products; fully supports the Agency's defence of its position against a challenge by one company that seeks to have all glucosamine products designated as medicines so driving up prices, reducing consumer choice and limiting the way in which the benefits of such products may be promoted; and encourages Consumers for Health Choice to keep up it's campaign to defend consumer choice in natural health products.

693 KURDISTAN REGION OF IRAQ 7:11:13
Robert Halfon
Sir Peter Bottomley
Jim Shannon
*3

That this House warmly welcomes the historic news that the Kurdistan region of Iraq and its neighbour, Turkey have concluded a comprehensive agreement to build oil and gas pipelines to ship the autonomous region's rich hydrocarbon reserves to world markets; believes that this could allow the Kurdistan region to export two million barrels per day of oil to world markets and at least 10 billion cubic metres per year of gas to Turkey in a move that will increase the security and diversity of energy supplies; recognises that this represents a triumph of diplomacy based on hard-headed self-interest between two places which were once at loggerheads; hopes that it can underpin a successful peace process between Turkey and its Kurds; and rejects the unreasonable fear that economic independence for the Kurdistan region of Iraq will lead to the disintegration of Iraq, because the country as a whole will gain from the success of the Kurdistan region, oil will remain the property of the people of Iraq and the proceeds of energy sales will be shared by all according to a much needed and robust revenue sharing formula and a fully-functioning federal system, as outlined in the Iraqi constitution which was approved by the people of Iraq in 2005.

Sarah Teather
Jeremy Corbyn
John McDonnell
*3

That this House notes that Smiths Group plc is proposing to close down production at Hypertac, Brent, making 30 women redundant by Christmas 2013 in order to move production abroad; further notes that while the company made a profit of £365 million in 2011-12 the women all earn less than £7.86 per hour, less than the London Living Wage, regardless of length of service, and that most have served the company loyally for between 25 and 39 years; understands the devastating impact of this news on the women, especially as 20 out of the 30 are the sole earners providing for their families; believes that these women deserve fair treatment having given their lives to making the employer a global success; supports the women of Hypertac in their fight; and calls on Smiths Group plc to reconsider its decision to close the plant, and guarantee that if closure goes ahead it will give the workforce a fair redundancy package, which recognises the length and loyalty of the service of the Hypertac employees.

Mark Durkan
*2

That this House supports the call by Parkinsons UK, the MS Society, the National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society and the Cystic Fibrosis Trust for the improvement of the work capability assessment as outlined in their submission to the assessment's fourth independent review; notes their evidence that 45 per cent of people with progressive illnesses who have applied for employment and support allowance have been told that they could recover enough to return to work; recognises the pain and suffering that many people with progressive illnesses face on a daily basis and that the work capability assessment currently adds to this; further notes that many people with progressive illnesses have been valuable contributors to the UK economy and society and will only submit a claim for the benefit as a last resort; calls on the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) to ensure that anyone with a prognosis of being unlikely to return to work in the longer term is placed into the support group, rather than allocated to the work-related activity group; further calls on the DWP to oblige Atos healthcare professionals to seek further evidence to clinically justify their recommendations on likely return to work before being able to place anyone with a progressive condition in the work-related activity group; and further calls on the DWP to abandon prognosis statements, which advise that a return to work could be considered in a certain timeframe, if that person has a debilitating progressive condition.

Mr George Galloway
*1

That this House notes that a number of leading members of the Bangladesh Nationalist Party have been arrested recently; further notes that the home of the leader of the Bangladesh Nationalist Party, Begum Khaleda Zia, has been surrounded by security forces, making it very difficult if not impossible for leading members of the Bangladesh Nationalist Party to meet and consult with her; further notes that these actions follow the demand by the Bangladesh Nationalist Party that the incumbent government should hand over to a caretaker government that will command the confidence of all principal parties which will then preside over the forthcoming general election; fears that the political situation is deteriorating in Bangladesh which will be potentially disastrous for the country; and therefore urges the Government to ask the current government of Bangladesh to respect basic human rights in Bangladesh and to negotiate with all the principal opposition parties to arrive at a process for the forthcoming general election which will be acceptable to and which will have the necessary credibility with all the principal political parties in Bangladesh.

Ian Mearns
*8
Mr George Mudie Jeremy Corbyn

That this House expresses concern over the proposals in NHS England's Funding Review of Allocations to alter health funding formulas which would divert funding away from areas of poor health outcomes to areas with better health outcomes; notes the long-standing political and scientific consensus that economic deprivation is a major indicator of healthcare needs; further notes that life expectancy can vary by as much as 11.5 years in different parts of England; further notes the answer given by the Health Minister in the House on 12 June 2012 that he 'can give that assurance' in response to a question from the hon. Member for Newcastle upon Tyne East that economic deprivation would not be downgraded in the resource allocation formula, Official Report, column 167; further notes the Health Minister's failure to condemn the proposals when questioned in the House on 22 October 2013, Official Report, column 134, and during a Westminster Hall debate on 5 November 2013, Official Report, column 63WH; and calls on the Government to resist any further moves to divert funding away from areas of high deprivation in future funding allocations and to oppose the proposals being consulted on in NHS England's funding review of allocations.

705 UNDER-OCCUPANCY PENALTY (No. 2) 11:11:13
Greg Mulholland
Ian Swales
Mr Adrian Sanders
Roger Williams
*4

That this House believes that the under-occupancy penalty was a mistake and should not have been introduced in the Welfare Reform Act 2012; further believes that it will not achieve the savings projected for it and that as constructed it is likely to have unforeseen consequences that will be unfair to certain groups and individuals; recognises that there is an urgent need to free up social housing to deal with the chronic shortage of social housing in many areas of the country, a legacy of the housing policies of previous Conservative and Labour administrations, including allowing people to buy council houses without replacing the stock, but nevertheless believes that the under-occupancy penalty is flawed and unacceptable in its current form; notes the perverse consequence that in some areas there are more larger properties now lying empty and with inadequate smaller housing; further believes that there should be more automatic exemptions, including for disabled and ill adults who require separate rooms for medical reasons or reasons associated with their disability; further believes that no-one should be subject to the penalty until they have refused a suitable home; further believes that councils should be given more exemptions, including where they can and wish to let houses above the recommended size without penalty to the individual or council; calls on the Department for Work and Pensions to conduct an urgent review of the policy and make changes; and further believes that if the Department refuses to do this, the policy should be scrapped altogether.
