Angela Eagle: I feel slightly sorry for the Minister, because she has been sent to defend the indefensible. Given her complacent demeanour today and her complete lack of acknowledgement about how serious this issue is, can she tell us quite how big a scandal would have to be before she actually reacted to it appropriately?
Angela Eagle: The American President seems to prefer unilateral action to multilateral action. He seems to want to be protectionist and inward-looking—to put America first, as he says—rather than to engage multilaterally. What implications does the Prime Minister think that approach has for the NATO alliance?
Angela Eagle: The White Paper says very little about the service industry, particularly financial services, except that we want to retain our access to integrated markets while not really sticking to the rules. Is that not more like having your cake and eating it, and is it not highly unlikely that the EU will ever agree to such an approach?
Angela Eagle: Does my hon. Friend agree that, while DWP staff are remarkably good at the job they do, they must have the tools they need to do that job, and many are frustrated that they do not have them?
Angela Eagle: It is hard to overstate the rolling catastrophe that is universal credit and the abject misery and hardship that it represents not only to my constituents but to those of many other right hon. and hon. Members. As page 19 of the NAO report demonstrates, the system is so beleaguered that, while the original plan was for more than 7 million households to be on universal credit by now, the...
Angela Eagle: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?
Angela Eagle: Does the hon. Gentleman see, as I do, a pattern of reluctance on the part of this Government to collect evidence and information precisely so that they can deny the effects of universal credit, and somehow pretend that the evidence that is accumulating is anecdotal?
Angela Eagle: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, whether she has made an estimate of the additional costs incurred by (a) Wirral Council and (b) advice agencies in Wirral as a result of the roll-out of universal credit.
Angela Eagle: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what information his Department holds on the average waiting time before a 999 ambulance call is answered in (a) Wirral, (b) Merseyside, (c) the North West and (d) England in each of the last 10 years.
Angela Eagle: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what information his Department holds on the number of ambulance 999 calls that were (a) put on hold and (b) sent to voicemail in (a) England, (b) the North West and (c) Wirral in each of the last five years.
Angela Eagle: To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, what steps his Department is taking to support the building of new social housing in the (a) North West and (b) Wirral.
Angela Eagle: The oddly named Chequers agreement fell apart after a weekend and is now the Chequers disagreement, as the Prime Minister’s Cabinet disintegrates before our eyes. Will she tell the House how on earth she is going to persuade the European Union to agree to her disagreement when her own Cabinet does not agree with it?
Angela Eagle: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what information he holds on the number of patients diagnosed with (a) antimicrobial- and (b) antibiotic-resistant diseases in England in each of the last five years.
Angela Eagle: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what information his Department holds on the number of people with a diagnosis of (a) TB and (b) drug-resistant TB in (i) Wirral, (ii) Merseyside, (iii) the North West and (iv) England.
Angela Eagle: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what assessment he has made of trends in the use of antibiotics in the UK fisheries sector in the last five years for which figures are available; and if he will make a statement.
Angela Eagle: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what assessment he has made of the trends in antibiotic usage in the UK agricultural sector over the most recent five years for which figures are available; and if he will make a statement.
Angela Eagle: To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, pursuant to the Answer of 2 July 2018 to Question 158173, if he will make it his Department's policy to require (a) banks and (b) other financial institutions to check for proof of power of attorney before that person is able to withdraw money from a dependant's bank account.
Angela Eagle: I suspect that the Secretary of State decided that she had to come to the House to apologise when she received the unprecedented open letter from the Comptroller and Auditor General pointing out that she had used—let us say—not correct assertions on three occasions about a report that her own officials had agreed. Will she now finally admit that she has got things very wrong on...
