Debate on the Address: Education, Skills and Training (25 May 2016)

Angela Eagle: I will give way to the hon. Gentleman and then to the hon. Member for Oxford West and Abingdon (Nicola Blackwood), if she will be a bit patient.

Debate on the Address: Education, Skills and Training (25 May 2016)

Angela Eagle: As I understand the White Paper, this also about competition between universities, and there are some paradoxical results there that I would be worried about if I were interested in widening, not narrowing, opportunities. I think the hon. Gentleman ought to accept that.

Debate on the Address: Education, Skills and Training (25 May 2016)

Angela Eagle: It is partly about speed. I think that the REF took six years to get into place, and this is all due to be done from a standing start in a couple of years. We have to get it right or there will be consequences that nobody on either side of the House would want to see.

Debate on the Address: Education, Skills and Training (25 May 2016)

Angela Eagle: I do not want to get into a Second Reading debate on the Bill—that is probably not wise. I want to get on and finish my speech. I have tried to take a lot of interventions, and it is only fair to those who want to speak in the rest of the debate that I get to the end of my speech. Education should not be about shackling a generation with yet more debt but about unleashing their...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 May 2016)

Angela Eagle: We look forward to the vote on Trident—he should get on with it. Given the overnight news of the French authorities’ dawn raid on Google, investigating allegations of aggravated financial fraud and money laundering, does the Chancellor now regret calling his cosy little tax deal with the same company “good news” for the British taxpayer?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 May 2016)

Angela Eagle: Obviously, the Chancellor has done a bit more research this time. I regard that as a compliment. From that answer, I think the Chancellor is far too easily satisfied with his cosy little tax deal. I note that even the hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) labelled that deal “derisory”. The British public think it is even worse. Despite all the rhetoric, on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 May 2016)

Angela Eagle: We all have a great deal of respect for the right hon. and learned Member for Rushcliffe (Mr Clarke). The Chancellor of the Exchequer will know that the Exchequer Secretary deals with taxes on vices, not on Google. I did my job in taxing vices when I was in the Treasury. The Chancellor will be judged on results. He has been in office for six years. Given that France is demanding 10 times...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 May 2016)

Angela Eagle: I think the Chancellor has just agreed with Len McCluskey. The former Work and Pensions Secretary said this week that the Chancellor’s Brexit report should not be believed by anyone, and he branded the Chancellor “Pinocchio”, with his nose just getting longer and longer with every fib. Meanwhile, the general secretary of the TUC said that the Treasury report gives us...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 May 2016)

Angela Eagle: I am glad that the Chancellor agrees with Frances O’Grady, but it is a pity that he cannot get half his Back Benchers, and most of his own party, to agree with him. Given that the former Work and Pensions Secretary has just called the Prime Minister “disingenuous”, and that the former Tory Mayor of London has called him “demented”, I would not talk about Labour...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 May 2016)

Angela Eagle: Thank you, Mr Speaker. Last week, the former would-be leader, Michael Portillo, said of the Queen’s Speech: “After 23 years of careful thought about what they would like to do in power, and the answer is nothing…There is nothing they want to do with office or power…The government has nothing to do, nothing to say and thinks nothing.” Even this...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 May 2016)

Angela Eagle: With 29 days to go until the most important decision this country has faced in a generation, we have before us a Government in utter chaos—split down the middle and at war with themselves. The stakes could not be higher, yet the Government are adrift at the mercy of their own rebel Back Benchers, unable to get their agenda through Parliament. Instead of providing the leadership the...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Innovation and Skills: Comet Group: Insolvency (12 May 2016)

Angela Eagle: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, with reference to the oral contribution of the then Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills on 20 December 2012, Official Report, column 989, for what reasons the Insolvency Service's investigation into Comet was not shared with the opposition front bench.

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Topical Questions (3 May 2016)

Angela Eagle: Two Select Committees of this House are now preparing to examine the collapse of BHS into administration last week, putting at risk 11,000 jobs. Sir Philip Green bought the company for £200 million, took hundreds of millions of pounds out of it in dividend payments for his own family and then sold it for £1 to a bankrupt with no retail experience. What does the Business Secretary...

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Topical Questions (3 May 2016)

Angela Eagle: That is good news and I certainly welcome the steps that the Business Secretary has taken. During Sir Philip Green’s stewardship of BHS, the pension fund went from a surplus to a black hole of £571 million. What options do the Government and the pensions regulator now have to ensure that Sir Philip Green pays his fair share of that huge liability? Does the Secretary of State agree...

BHS (25 Apr 2016)

Angela Eagle: I thank the Minister for her statement and for giving me early sight of it. Eleven thousand BHS staff will be desperately worried about their jobs today. BHS is a venerable British company, which has been a feature of our high streets for almost a century. I am sure Members on all sides of the House will hope that administrators will be successful in their attempts to sell BHS as a going...

Uk Steel Industry (12 Apr 2016)

Angela Eagle: I beg to move, That this House has considered Tata Steel’s decision to sell its UK steel operations; and action the Government is taking to secure the future of the UK steel industry. Mr Speaker, may I place on the record my thanks to you for granting this debate under Standing Order No. 24? Such debates are rare, but the situation facing the steel industry cannot be categorised as...
