The Equal...

Tyne and Wear Metro (1 July 2015)

Emma Lewell-Buck: I beg to move, That this House has considered the performance of the Tyne and Wear Metro. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gray.

City Deal Funding (Aberdeen) (30 June 2015)

Kirsty Blackman: Yes, we do have trains, unlike in some parts of northern Scotland. We are very lucky. The upgrades to the line, however, will make a significant difference to commuters. A huge number of people commute already, particularly from regions in the north-east, and if we can improve the railway line, particularly by dualling it in places so that more trains can pass, that will only improve our...

Hannah Bardell: I would certainly be interested in taking a closer look at that and discussing it with my colleagues. I welcome the hon. Gentleman’s intervention. To deal with youth unemployment, that approach is supported by the EU. We are keen for the powers that we were promised to be delivered to Scotland.

Welfare Reform (People with Disabilities) (30 June 2015)

Debbie Abrahams: I was discussing the experiences of disabled people, 90% of whom have worked. For people with disabilities, the experience of an interview can be particularly discouraging. People with disabilities should be able to access the same opportunities as everyone else, including being able to use their talent and skills to the best of their ability. No one should feel that they are unable to reach...
