Business of the House (29 Jun 2017)

Angela Eagle: Last week, rumours circulated in Wallasey that Kingsway Academy, which is in Leasowe in my constituency, was going to close. We have now managed to establish that there are plans to close it, perhaps by the end of July. This will throw our whole education system in Wallasey into disarray, and there are 400 pupils whose future is currently completely obscure. We do not know where they are...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Zero-hours Contracts (27 Jun 2017)

Angela Eagle: I welcome the Minister’s statement that the Government are determined to ensure that employees get their employment rights. Why, then, did the Government introduce the huge fees for access to employment tribunals? Will they now abolish those fees?

Brexit and Foreign Affairs (26 Jun 2017)

Angela Eagle: This Queen’s Speech is not a plan for a Government at the height of their powers with a refreshed mandate. It is a legislative programme for a Government in a holding pattern, led by an isolated and humiliated Prime Minister who has been shorn of her authority after a bruising encounter with the electorate in an election that she chose to call three years early. She flunked the test...

Grenfell Tower (22 Jun 2017)

Angela Eagle: As the leader of a party that is responsible for seven years of austerity, which has cut 56% of the cash available to my local authority in the past seven years, and has spent its time talking about regulation as a bad thing, is the right hon. Lady now going to apologise to the country for the state of local government, when the richest borough in London could not cope with this emergency,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Cammell Laird (25 Apr 2017)

Angela Eagle: What plans the Government have to publish a response to the findings of the European Parliament's Committee on Petitions in December 2014 relating to a petition on the treatment of Cammell Laird strikers in 1984.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Cammell Laird (25 Apr 2017)

Angela Eagle: In 1984, workers at Cammell Laird’s shipyard took official strike action over job losses just as the Thatcher Government were trying to privatise British shipbuilders. They were dismissed, jailed in a category A prison for 30 days, and lost their redundancy and pension rights. The Minister has tried to give us a technical answer today, but will he now undertake to release all the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (25 Apr 2017)

Angela Eagle: When I was recently called to do jury service, I got the chance to experience at first hand the current state of our courts. The jury canteen had to close down because it malfunctioned, the ladies’ toilets malfunctioned, the water machine malfunctioned and the computers malfunctioned, meaning that juries could not even be chosen. Despite the fantastic and very patient work of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (25 Apr 2017)

Angela Eagle: The only member.

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Personal Independence Payment (24 Apr 2017)

Angela Eagle: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what proportion of disability living allowance reassessments, including cases following either a mandatory reconsideration or an appeal, have resulted in (a) a lower or (b) no award of personal independence payment.

Business of the House (18 Apr 2017)

Angela Eagle: The Leader of the House has given us an image of the Prime Minister being dragged, kicking and screaming, into calling a general election when she did not want one. Can we find time in what is left of this Parliament to have a debate about why she decided to trigger article 50 and then throw the entire planning into doubt by then calling a general election, which will waste at least three...

Money Laundering: British Banks (21 Mar 2017)

Angela Eagle: The Economic Secretary has shown real complacency about the huge and building scandal that has been revealed by The Guardian today. Given that our banking sector is very large and that the consequences of its being destabilised by such criminal behaviour are very serious for our economy, does he not realise that his complacent, process-driven answers today are simply not good enough?

Class 4 National Insurance Contributions (15 Mar 2017)

Angela Eagle: Of 28 measures in this Budget, the Chancellor has had to come in a humiliating fashion to the House today to cast away the one that actually raised money. He has just told us that £14 billion of tax revenue is at risk because of the way national insurance is encouraging people to become, apparently, self-employed, and encouraging other abuses. He has told us he is not going to deal with...

Personal Independence Payments (15 Mar 2017)

Angela Eagle: I have to say that I am finding an increasing discrepancy between the way that the Secretary of State is describing the PIP benefit and the people who are coming to my advice surgeries in tears having been completely let down by the system. We all want to see a society where we give support to the most vulnerable, and that is who we are talking about here. Will the Secretary of State now...

European Council (14 Mar 2017)

Angela Eagle: The Prime Minister has said that no deal is better than a bad deal. We all wish her well in getting the best possible deal for the UK, but will she now publish what the effects would be of crashing out of the European Union on World Trade Organisation rules, so that we can have a debate in this country about her assertion that no deal is better than a bad deal?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (14 Mar 2017)

Angela Eagle: Given that the Brexit negotiations are about to start, does the Secretary of State agree with his right hon. Friend the Prime Minister that no deal is better than a bad deal?

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (9 Mar 2017)

Angela Eagle: Does my hon. Friend also recognise that the cuts to benefits, particularly to housing benefit, will have a huge effect on extra care? Large numbers of people are very happy, well looked after and protected in those arrangements, but they cannot pay for them if housing benefit goes. Moving those people into nursing care will cost far more a week. That is another ticking time bomb.

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (9 Mar 2017)

Angela Eagle: Just to reassure the hon. Gentleman, I suspect that I would have been even more offended if he had agreed more with me than with his hon. Friend.

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (9 Mar 2017)

Angela Eagle: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Richmond (Yorks) (Rishi Sunak), whose constituency is in my home county, Yorkshire. The last time I was in his neck of the woods, it was not to go to a pub—as many of my hon. Friends seem to have done—but to fight the by-election that his predecessor fought and won. I remember wandering forlornly through a village in the...

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (9 Mar 2017)

Angela Eagle: Exactly. My hon. Friend will agree that, with their cynical use of short-term advantage and the way they have electioneered on it, their pledges and the way they have campaigned, the Conservatives have actually made it much harder for us to make the reforms that we as a society need to make to our tax and benefit system and our social care system. That is the ultimate in irresponsibility....
