Bills Presented: Ukraine, Middle East, North Africa and Security (10 September 2014)

Madeleine Moon: I thank the right hon. Gentleman for his confirmation that we are using the United Nations to point out the importance of cutting off financial support to ISIL. Is he talking to Governments around the world and ensuring that the Treasury is equally engaged in ensuring that messages go out to banking systems and individuals that it is not a good thing to channel funds to ISIL and that, if they...

bill presented: Hazaras (Afghanistan and Pakistan) (1 September 2014)

Madeleine Moon: As we have heard, the Hazaras are Persian-speaking people who live mainly in central Afghanistan. They are overwhelmingly Shi’a Muslims and make up the third largest ethnic group in Afghanistan, forming about 9% of the population. Their distinctive facial features in comparison with the Pashtuns, who make up 42% of the Afghan population, makes them easy to identify, marginalise and...

bill presented: Hazaras (Afghanistan and Pakistan) (1 September 2014)

Madeleine Moon: The hon. Gentleman, as always, is trying to steal my best lines. I ask him to wait until my conclusion. If Afghanistan is going to survive, the rights of groups such as the Hazara need not only to be tolerated but fully accepted and incorporated into the workings of the state. This is no small task or easy feat even in the best of circumstances, but many of the ingredients are there. Article...

bill presented: Mitochondrial Replacement (Public Safety) (1 September 2014)

Madeleine Moon: I rise to speak only on behalf of my constituent Margaret Evans. Margaret was unfortunately forced to move into Picton Court care home in my constituency. I was contacted by her sisters, Val Thomas and Mrs Pitt, who live in the constituency of my hon. Friend the Member for Ogmore (Huw Irranca-Davies), who asked me to meet Margaret to see how mitochondrial disease affects their family. They...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: EU Council, Security and Middle East (1 September 2014)

Madeleine Moon: Murder, rape and abduction have been used against women in Iraq by ISIS and across Syria. Britain hosted a conference on ending sexual violence against women. We have also signed UN resolution 1325. What women need is a place at the table when discussions take place about peace and the resolution of conflict. Will the Prime Minister commit to ensuring that Britain does its utmost to make sure...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Ukraine (Flight MH17) and Gaza (21 July 2014)

Madeleine Moon: Russia is reliant on the manufacturing base in eastern Ukraine. It relies on 30% of Ukraine’s manufacturing output for unique and irreplaceable military components for the arsenal of the Russian military. Does the Prime Minister accept that it is about time that we put an end to this false belief that Russia’s actions in eastern Ukraine and in Crimea were anything to do with the...

Attempted Suicides (Police Responsibilities) (15 July 2014)

Madeleine Moon: Let me take this opportunity to welcome the Minister for Policing, Criminal Justice and Victims to his new role and congratulate him on his promotion. If ever there was a Minister who will understand the issues I want to raise, it will be this Minister, who in his previous role as a firefighter will have come across the very issues that I hope he is eager to support me in addressing. Let me...

Attempted Suicides (Police Responsibilities) (15 July 2014)

Madeleine Moon: That is the whole tenet of my speech—the hon. Gentleman has stolen some of my best lines. He is correct: there is a lack of the support that police officers, who take on the most difficult job of saving a life, should have—and that the person who has attempted to take their own life should have—in order to ensure that they are not back in the same situation within 24 hours,...

Attempted Suicides (Police Responsibilities) (15 July 2014)

Madeleine Moon: I can say that the police increasingly have difficulty finding beds for people who need help and support. Although I cannot comment on the specific situation in Hampshire, the inquiry will reveal whether a suicide prevention action plan is in place and whether there is active engagement with the police in relation to that plan. I hope that that will be of assistance to the hon. Gentleman in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Mental Health (Parity of Esteem) (15 July 2014)

Madeleine Moon: The all-party group on suicide prevention has been looking at the money going into suicide prevention as a result of the Government’s suicide prevention plan. It is acknowledged by most local authorities that there is more money for mental health, but suicide has been rolled into mental health and there is a distinct lack of support for those who are suicidal but do not have a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Middle East (14 July 2014)

Madeleine Moon: Turkey is a critical ally within NATO. It is also struggling to manage the large numbers of refugees who have come over its borders both from Syria and Iraq. Can we be very clear in sending out a message to other nations also at the Newport summit that we will not stand by and see Turkey attacked before coming to its support?

[Sandra Osborne in the Chair] — Organ Transplants (8 July 2014)

Madeleine Moon: I well remember watching the television as a child in 1967, hearing the news of Dr Christiaan Barnard’s first heart transplant and being absolutely amazed. It seemed like something out of a science fiction book, yet we have moved in a relatively short space of time so much further forward. The one area, however, where we have not moved forward is public recognition of the essential part...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Child Abuse (7 July 2014)

Madeleine Moon: In the early 1980s, I was working in child protection in south Wales, and rumours such as those that have been circulating this weekend were also circulating then. Many of the people who were working in child protection in the 1980s have now retired. Will there be a confidential access line to enable such people to come forward and reveal what they saw happening at the time? Such material...

Business of the House (3 July 2014)

Madeleine Moon: During the first and second world wars the majority of engineers in Britain were women, yet today women make up only 7% of the engineering work force, the lowest percentage across Europe. Iceland has 43%. May we have a debate on how we can ensure that women understand that engineering is a first-class career option, for example with companies such as Ford in Bridgend?

Bill Presented: First World War (Commemoration) (26 June 2014)

Madeleine Moon: With other Members of the House, I welcome the hon. Member for Newark (Robert Jenrick) to his place. I knew his predecessor well and often heard his views on defence. We did not always agree, but more often than not, we did. I should apologise, because family commitments meant that I am one of the Members who has not visited his constituency lately. I therefore found it particularly...

Bill Presented: First World War (Commemoration) (26 June 2014)

Madeleine Moon: Will my hon. Friend also acknowledge the women who were called up to into a profession that previously had been seen as being way beyond their capability—the police force? Those women walked the streets at night on their own, keeping them safe, as well doing the unique little job of calling on women whose husbands were at the front to check that they were not up to any shenanigans.

Business of the House (26 June 2014)

Madeleine Moon: Can we have a debate on the responsibility gap faced by British Transport and Home Office police when they find an individual in emotional and mental crisis attempting suicide? They take them to A and E and are told that because the person does not have a mental illness, they will not be admitted. The individual’s life is at great risk and they have committed no crime, yet no one seems...
