Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Employment Support Allowance (21 Jul 2015)

Dawn Butler: Of course we all want to see work pay, but a large section of the community are sometimes unable to work for short periods of time because of illnesses such as sickle cell disease. The Minister seems to have overlooked that group of people.

[Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] — Housing Supply (London) (15 Jul 2015)

Dawn Butler: Will the Minister give way?

[Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] — Housing Supply (London) (15 Jul 2015)

Dawn Butler: The average house price in Brent is 384,000, which is 19 times my constituents’ average take-home pay of 19,937. Rent can be 78% of a constituent’s income. That contributes to the housing crisis in London. Does the hon. Lady agree?

Bills Presented: Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (9 Jul 2015)

Dawn Butler: I congratulate all those who have made their wonderful maiden speeches today. I received a tweet from a constituent that said: “I’m seriously scratching my head to that bit.” Members might ask, “What bit?”, because we were scratching our heads to quite a few bits of the Chancellor’s Budget speech. My constituent was referring to the bit about the minimum...

Bills Presented: Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (9 Jul 2015)

Dawn Butler: Apologies, Madam Deputy Speaker. I think that at the time he was not the Prime Minister, but I apologise. Brent has the above average number of 5,609 lone parents, which is 11% of all households. Some 64% of families in Brent Central are receiving tax credits. It is okay to have universal credit—I agree with that; I used to work in the employment service—but the Institute for...

Business of the House (9 Jul 2015)

Dawn Butler: A recent report by the Competition and Markets Authority highlighted my early-day motion 238, which stated that people using pre-payment meters were paying up to 226 more than those on the cheapest energy tariffs. [That this House notes the recent Ofgem report calling on all energy suppliers to treat prepayment meter (PPM) customers fairly; further notes that households need more...

UN Independent Commission of Inquiry (Gaza) — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (8 Jul 2015)

Dawn Butler: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Halifax (Holly Lynch) on securing the debate. I need to declare an interest because I am vice-chair of Labour Friends of Palestine. I plan to visit Gaza, God willing, this year. I support a two-state solution, but it must be recognised by neighbouring countries, it has to be sustainable, and peace has to prevail. Part of that must be about...

Opposition Day — [4th Allotted Day]: Equal Pay and the Gender Pay Gap (1 Jul 2015)

Dawn Butler: My hon. Friend is making a compelling case for why Members on all sides of the House should support the motion. The Secretary of State said that she supports the motion in principle. Should we just urge Government Members to support us?

Opposition Day — [4th Allotted Day]: Equal Pay and the Gender Pay Gap (1 Jul 2015)

Dawn Butler: The Secretary of State is advancing some powerful and valid arguments. One possible way in which people can tackle the pay gap is to take their employer to a tribunal, but the Government have introduced tribunal fees, and, as a magistrate, I have observed that that has deterred many women from taking their employers to court. The number has fallen by 68%. How does the Secretary of State think...

Opposition Day: Sport and the 2012 Olympics Legacy (24 Jun 2015)

Dawn Butler: I am sure that the Mayor of London is a lover of statistics and will enjoy this one: 71.2% of adults in Brent would love to do more sporting activity, compared to 55% in the country as a whole. Unfortunately, however, the lack of access and opportunity prevents that from happening. I declare an interest in being the Member of Parliament representing Wembley stadium, where we should have seen...

Opposition Day: 3rd Alloted day — A&E Services (24 Jun 2015)

Dawn Butler: Although the target is used as a measure, or to take the temperature, does the hon. Lady not feel that the fact that it has gone up 401% since 2009-10 is something to be worried about?

Dawn Butler: The time that people have had to wait for four hours has gone up—

Opposition Day: 3rd Alloted day — A&E Services (24 Jun 2015)

Dawn Butler: My hon. Friend the Member for Brent North (Barry Gardiner) mentioned the distressing figures at Northwick Park hospital, but the Government’s solution was to close Central Middlesex hospital’s A&E. Does my hon. Friend the Member for Copeland (Mr Reed) think that that added to the crisis or made it better?

Education and Adoption Bill (22 Jun 2015)

Dawn Butler: Does my hon. Friend share my disappointment that the Secretary of State failed to meet parents from St Andrew and St Francis School, who want to appeal against it being forced into academy status based on a flawed Ofsted report?
