International Development (Official Development Assistance Target) Bill (12 September 2014)

Alison McGovern: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

International Development (Official Development Assistance Target) Bill (12 September 2014)

Alison McGovern: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

International Development (Official Development Assistance Target) Bill (12 September 2014)

Alison McGovern: That must be one of the more curious attempts I have made to intervene on the hon. Gentleman. I cannot quite work out why he has allowed me to intervene now, but as he has, perhaps I might ask him, first, if he will congratulate the last Labour Government on their actions on gift aid and recognise the impact it has had, as has been pointed out. Also, is his argument really that there is no...

International Development (Official Development Assistance Target) Bill (12 September 2014)

Alison McGovern: rose—

International Development (Official Development Assistance Target) Bill (12 September 2014)

Alison McGovern: Further to that point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. The Opposition are saddened by the loss of Lord Bannside, the former Member of Parliament for North Antrim. My colleagues and I support most deeply the words of the hon. Member for Foyle (Mark Durkan) and the Minister. Our thoughts are with Lord Bannside’s family. We send them our deepest sympathies, most particularly his son, the...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Relief Effort (Gaza) (3 September 2014)

Alison McGovern: I welcome the right hon. Gentleman to his new role and pay tribute to his predecessor. The 3,000 injured children in Gaza and the 100,000 Palestinians made homeless whom the Minister mentioned need uninterrupted help from humanitarian agencies such as the Red Cross. The situation is still urgent. What specific steps has he taken with the Foreign Office and others to encourage both Israeli and...

Written Answers — Treasury: Banks: Pay (2 September 2014)

Alison McGovern: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what recent representations he has made to institutions of the EU on the cap on bank bonuses.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (1 September 2014)

Alison McGovern: A constituent of mine, an older, experienced woman, recently told me that when she was made redundant she got barely any help from our local jobcentre. It was therefore no surprise to me to see recent figures showing that the Work programme is getting a job for only one in eight workers over 50. Who is going to fix that—those who are running the Work programme or Ministers?

[Mr Adrian Sanders in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Refugee Camps (22 July 2014)

Alison McGovern: It is a pleasure to serve under your stewardship, Mr Sanders. I congratulate the hon. Member for Mid Derbyshire (Pauline Latham) on securing this important debate, and I thank the Backbench Business Committee for granting time for us to discuss the vital issue of refugees and the conditions in the camps where so many have no choice but to reside. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for...

Bill Presented — Counsellors and Psychotherapists (Regulation) Bill: Political Party Policy Costings (Office for Budget Responsibility) (16 July 2014)

Alison McGovern: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to amend the Budget Responsibility and National Audit Act 2011 to allow the Office for Budget Responsibility to scrutinise and certificate the policy costings of political parties represented in the House of Commons. This Bill would allow the Office for Budget Responsibility independently to audit tax and spending measures in the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Primary Care (Older People) (15 July 2014)

Alison McGovern: The Secretary of State mentioned integration. Good care and support for older people in their own homes are vital, yet a constituent visited me recently to say that she simply could not find a decent trustworthy care company to look after her relative. Will the Secretary of State join me in calling for all local authorities to sign up to the ethical care charter?

Written Answers — Work and Pensions: Universal Credit (15 July 2014)

Alison McGovern: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what processes his Department has agreed to enable housing associations to be informed when tenants migrate to universal credit.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Household Disposable Incomes (9 July 2014)

Alison McGovern: If he will estimate the average change in disposable income for families in Wales since May 2010.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Household Disposable Incomes (9 July 2014)

Alison McGovern: I am not sure that the Minister shared many detailed statistics with the House in that answer. Perhaps he will say a little more. The economies of Merseyside and north Wales are inextricably linked, so what is bad for north Wales is bad for Merseyside. That is why I would like to know just how much damage the Government have done to the incomes of people in north Wales.

Business of the House (3 July 2014)

Alison McGovern: Each and every time a Government Minister is asked about zero-hours contracts, they reference their hope to ban exclusivity clauses, but there are far more problems associated with zero-hours contracts than that, and many other ways in which people are exploited. May we therefore have a debate on zero-hours contracts in Government time?

Written Answers — Home Department: Passports (3 July 2014)

Alison McGovern: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what discussions she has had with the Immigration and Passport Service on (a) the service's ability to meet the three-week timescale for processing an application for a child passport and (b) possible extension of that timescale.

Opposition Day — [3rd Allotted Day]: DWP: Performance (30 June 2014)

Alison McGovern: On that previous intervention, does my hon. Friend share my sense of deep frustration that even after the 1980s the Conservatives have failed to learn that the important thing is not a falling claimant count, but the unemployment rate? Although that is thankfully lower, there are loads of other reasons to think that we still have problems in our economy.
