Exploitation of Missing Looked-after Children — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (23 Oct 2019)

Ann Coffey: It has been an excellent debate. The area is complex, and each of the contributions has reflected that complexity. The hon. Member for Bedford (Mohammad Yasin) has clearly seen the impact of unregulated accommodation in his constituency, which I know is a hotspot for county lines activity. It is also interesting to hear the contributions from the different parts of the United Kingdom. I do...

Exploitation of Missing Looked-after Children — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (23 Oct 2019)

Ann Coffey: I recognise some of the good initiatives from the Department for Education over the years, but as I said there are not enough places to allow local authorities to make a choice about what is in the best interests of the child. They are placing children in placements hundreds of miles away because they have no option. That is why we are urging the Department to take a lead responsibility, not...

Exploitation of Missing Looked-after Children — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (23 Oct 2019)

Exploitation of Missing Looked-after Children — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (23 Oct 2019)

Ann Coffey: I totally agree with my hon. Friend’s comments about the new computer system. A system that cannot manage information in a way that keeps children safe is not fit for purpose, so I am pleased he has raised that point. Moving children to unknown and unfamiliar placements, particularly at short notice, causes anxiety, distress, fear and anger, as well as causing further trauma to children...

Timpson Review of School Exclusion (7 May 2019)

Stockport has a programme that identifies children in primary school who need extra support at that time. Without this support, which includes working with families, schools and mentors, vulnerable children are...

Tuition Fees: EU Students (29 Apr 2019)

Ann Coffey: I support the concerns expressed by the hon. Member for Ashton-under-Lyne (Angela Rayner) about the consequences of these proposals for universities. However, this is unfortunately yet another example of the damage that Brexit is likely to inflict on future generations of young people. The House will return to further discussion of Brexit soon. When he casts his vote on various options, will...

Online Harms White Paper (8 Apr 2019)

Ann Coffey: I thank the Secretary of State for his statement. Catfishing is the theft of a person’s identity in order to sexually exploit vulnerable people on social media platforms. Of course we must help people become more resilient in relation to online grooming, but we also need to change the behaviour of those who exploit others. Has the Secretary of State had any discussions with the Home...
