European Council 2016 (19 Dec 2016)

Angela Eagle: Perhaps the Prime Minister could then tell us with some certainty when her plan for exiting the European Union, which she has agreed to present to this House, will be ready. Presumably, it will be some time before she triggers article 50.

Social Care Funding (12 Dec 2016)

Angela Eagle: Thank you, Mr Speaker. I think it is right that you chose the younger before the older this time, because you did the opposite last time. In the Wirral we have an above-average number of older people, yet we have a very low council tax base, which means that we cannot raise enough money through council tax to deal with the shortfalls in adult social care. As the Minister knows, £5...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Motability (12 Dec 2016)

Angela Eagle: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, how many people in the UK have had their eligibility for the motability scheme revoked before (a) mandatory reconsideration and (b) final appeal stage since April 2013.

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Adult Social Care (28 Nov 2016)

Angela Eagle: Thank you, Mr Speaker; you may have caused me some trouble later this evening. In the past six years, the Government have cut social care funding by nearly £5 billion. In my authority of Wirral, there is a £3.5 million hole in the budget only halfway through the year. The system is on its knees, and there has been an 18% increase in emergency admissions to hospital as a result. The...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (23 Nov 2016)

Angela Eagle: The Prime Minister has talked about her worries about social care, but surely we have to judge her by her actions. In the last six years there has been an average 37% cut in local authority funding—57% in my area—and nearly a quarter of all those older people in need of social care have been denied any help at all. What is she going to do about it?

National Health Service Funding (22 Nov 2016)

Angela Eagle: Will the Minister give way?

National Health Service Funding (22 Nov 2016)

National Health Service Funding (22 Nov 2016)

Angela Eagle: I asked my sister whether Liverpool had had any input into the Merseyside and Cheshire STP. Obviously my hon. Friend represents part of the area that it covers, so can he tell us whether Ellesmere Port has had any involvement in the development of that STP?

National Health Service Funding (22 Nov 2016)

Angela Eagle: I thank my hon. Friend for giving way. The Wirral Borough Council was not asked to participate at all. Was the Liverpool authority asked to participate?

National Health Service Funding (22 Nov 2016)

Angela Eagle: The NHS in Wirral is facing its gravest crisis, which is why I am grateful for the opportunity to speak in this debate. Cheshire and Merseyside’s so-called sustainability and transformation plan was published last Wednesday, and it is a piece of work that is shocking in its complacency, Orwellian in its use of language and potentially devastating in its consequences. The Secretary of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Sustainability and Transformation Plans (15 Nov 2016)

Angela Eagle: What discussions he has had with local government representatives on the sustainability and transformation plan process.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Sustainability and Transformation Plans (15 Nov 2016)

Angela Eagle: Yesterday, the King’s Fund rightly characterised what is euphemistically called the sustainability and transformation project as being planned in secret, behind the backs of patients and the public. In Merseyside and Wirral, we know from leaks that the Government are going to cut £1 billion from our local national health service, which, despite rising demand, will close hospitals,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Education Provision: 16 to 19-Year-Olds (14 Nov 2016)

Angela Eagle: Over the next four years, funding for education is due to fall by 8% per head, although I note that Ministers have been describing this as “protecting” core funding, which is a funny use of language. So low is funding for sixth forms that schools that have formed academies are increasingly getting rid of their sixth forms because they are not profitable, thereby cutting off large...

Un Vote on the Independent Expert for the LGBT Community (8 Nov 2016)

Angela Eagle: Does the Minister agree that LGBT rights are human rights and that, as such, they are indivisible from any of the other human rights that we are so proud that the UN tries to enforce? Will he accept from me the very best wishes of the LGBT community in the battle he now leads within the UN? If this human rights advocate is voted against and taken away from the UN, that will be a huge setback...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Innovation and Research: Science (8 Nov 2016)

Angela Eagle: So advanced is UK innovation and scientific knowledge that, prior to the referendum, this country made £3.5 billion more in grants for science and innovation than it put into EU funds. That is now all up in the air, and there is despair in some areas of UK science about the disentanglement that Brexit will cause and the threats to integrated innovation and science budgets. What can the...

NHS Funding (31 Oct 2016)

Angela Eagle: My constituents who are watching these exchanges will think that the Secretary of State is living in a parallel universe. The sustainability and transformation programme in Merseyside is reputed to be tackling a £1 billion deficit. The way in which it has decided to tackle it in Wirral, in my area, is to draw up plans to close Clatterbridge, our cancer hospital, to close Arrowe Park, our...
