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....

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

Angela Eagle: I agree. We saw a cynical dash from the Conservatives to make short-term promises to get elected, and we saw them campaign even more cynically on those promises in the hope that when they had to be broken nobody would notice. But the Government’s actions are making it much harder for us to have cross-party support on anything, and they have also made it very difficult for anyone to...

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

Angela Eagle: That may be the generous interpretation, but there are other interpretations that involve the cynicism I have talked about. This is the issue: if the Government really wanted to make a reasonable reform to the tax system and national insurance contributions to take away the current tax incentive for people to self-incorporate or real employers to force people into becoming apparently...

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

Angela Eagle: Obviously it is important to get the deficit down. The Government said that they would eliminate it by 2015, two years ago, and now the Budget document makes it clear that it may not be eliminated by 2025. Is that the Secretary of State’s definition of success—being 10 years late with a five-year plan?

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

Angela Eagle: Death tax.

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

Angela Eagle: In the Liverpool city region, we are meant to welcome £30 million a year over the next 30 years, which is £900 million. We have lost more than £1 billion in direct funding cuts to our five local authorities. Half a billion pounds in European funding has been granted for the last two rounds, but there is no guarantee of anything in future. Does my right hon. Friend agree that...

Opel/Vauxhall: Sale to Psa Group (6 Mar 2017)

Angela Eagle: I have constituents who work in the Ellesmere Port plant and many others are reliant for their employment on local supply chains, so this is causing huge worry in the area. What can the Secretary of State say to reassure my constituents about the future, particularly given that our employment laws make it easier to sack workers in the UK compared with those who work in France and Germany,...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Personal Independence Payment (2 Mar 2017)

Angela Eagle: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what criteria his Department uses to assess claimants for the enhanced rate mobility component of personal independence payments; and what the differences are between those criteria and the criteria previously used to assess claimants for the higher rate mobility component of disability living allowance.

PRAYERS - [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] : Liverpool City Region (Poverty) — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (1 Mar 2017)

Angela Eagle: My hon. Friend is making a powerful speech. Will she attempt to explain what the Government’s thinking might be, given the disparity in poverty between certain areas that she has just explained? In the Wirral, we have lost 57% of local authority funding, Liverpool has lost 58%, and yet there are some areas, normally represented by Conservative MPs, that have seen nowhere near those...

PRAYERS - [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] : Liverpool City Region (Poverty) — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (1 Mar 2017)

Angela Eagle: Does my hon. Friend realise that there is also a similar pattern in the Wirral? I suspect the numbers are not quite as high, but the reasons for the existence, running and use of food banks on the Wirral are similar. There are now seven food banks in Wallasey, and according to the Trussell Trust, benefit sanctions, the inadequacy of benefits and delays in paying benefits are why almost half...

PRAYERS - [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] : Liverpool City Region (Poverty) — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (1 Mar 2017)

Angela Eagle: Does my hon. Friend accept that the pattern is particularly stark in the Wirral? If a line is drawn down the M53, the difference in life expectancy between the west side and the poorest parts of the east side is 10 years.

PRAYERS - [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] : Liverpool City Region (Poverty) — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (1 Mar 2017)

Angela Eagle: In the Wirral, before the previous Labour Government took office, 65% of social housing was below the acceptable standard. Owing to the money that was invested under that Labour Government, when we left office less than 5% of the social stock was below the acceptable standard. Does my hon. Friend recognise how that helped to deal with the problems of poverty, and health related ones in...

Personal Independence Payments (28 Feb 2017)

Angela Eagle: If everything is working so well, why are my advice surgeries full of people who have been waiting for their PIP assessments for a very long time? Long-term disabled people are being denied them and being caused massive amounts of distress by the process. They feel utter despair at having to have anything to do with it.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (28 Feb 2017)

Angela Eagle: Given the shameful neglect of social care spending in the autumn statement and straws in the wind about how that is going to be put right in the Budget, will the Chancellor take account of the fact that authorities such as ours in Wirral are having to deal with £45 million-worth of pressure due to the number of our older people who are needing help, and that a 3% increase in council tax...

Vauxhall/Opel: Proposed Takeover (20 Feb 2017)

Angela Eagle: I commend the Secretary of State for his fast action in meeting all the parties. I represent people who work in the Ellesmere Port factory. We local MPs are all justifiably proud of the work that has been done there to keep the production process as one of the most efficient in the world. We bow to no one in the world when it comes to efficiency and productivity at the Ellesmere Port plant....

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: (20 Feb 2017)

Angela Eagle: Will the Minister say a little more about how ESA and PIP assessments for those with mental illnesses work? I have six cases where mandatory reconsideration letters are identical to the letters providing the original decision. I have four cases—she knows of one of them because she has written to me about it—where the wrong information, about other people, has been cut and pasted...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Conduct of negotiations (8 Feb 2017)

Angela Eagle: Does my hon. Friend agree that trying to get exactly the same access to the single market without paying any of the costs is like disappearing down the rabbit hole into Alice’s Wonderland? It is important that we have an assessment of what World Trade Organisation rules would cost, if we had to fall back on them.
