Taylor Review (7 Feb 2018)

Angela Eagle: Zero-hours contract carers get paid for face-to-face work, so they get paid for every 15-minute visit, but none of the travelling time in between. They often have fragmented contracts and have to be available for work throughout the seven days of the week, and they do not have proper time off. That is one example. Then we have couriers, who have to deliver more than 100 packages a day for 48p...

Taylor Review (7 Feb 2018)

Angela Eagle: What are you going to do?

Women’S Suffrage Centenary (6 Feb 2018)

Angela Eagle: There is nobody more partisan than I am, but today is no time to be partisan. It is a time to be proud that we are all lucky enough to be in this place on such an auspicious day, when we welcome and celebrate 100 years of women’s enfranchisement. When I first came here, there were only 60 women MPs and today we celebrate comprising nearly a third of all Members, but it is still not...

Health and Social Care: Routes into Nursing (6 Feb 2018)

Angela Eagle: But will the Secretary of State admit that he made a basic error by scrapping nurse bursaries, which has led to a 23% fall in the number of people applying to nurse courses? Why does he not look at that if he wants to widen the entrance into nursing?

Health and Social Care: Routes into Nursing (6 Feb 2018)

Angela Eagle: I always listen to you.

Presidents Club Charity Dinner (24 Jan 2018)

Angela Eagle: The Fawcett Society recently published a report stating that violence and harassment against women was endemic in our country, with two thirds of women over 16 reporting that they have suffered sexual harassment. Does the Minister note that the employment contracts and notes for the women attending the event as hostesses asked them to be “tall, thin and pretty” and that they had...

Food Poverty: Merseyside — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (16 Jan 2018)

Angela Eagle: The Minister speaks about the income tax threshold, but does he realise that most of the people we are talking about are on zero-hours contracts and really low pay, and they do not pay income tax? None of those tax giveaways have any effect on their weekly income.

Food Poverty: Merseyside — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (16 Jan 2018)

Angela Eagle: Does my hon. Friend recognise that, even though the Government do not do any research, the Trussell Trust and those people who actually provide food and collect food for food banks do. Their research proves conclusively that benefit delays, changes to benefits and low pay are the main reasons why people resort to food banks. Will she acknowledge that, as universal credit comes to my...

Food Poverty: Merseyside — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (16 Jan 2018)

Angela Eagle: I congratulate my hon. Friend on raising this really important subject. In Wallasey we have a very similar result. Well over half the people who have to use the food bank—and it is large numbers now—report to the Trussell Trust that they are doing so because of either benefit sanctions or delays to their benefits. Does he agree that this is a Government-made problem?

NHS Winter Crisis (10 Jan 2018)

Angela Eagle: Does my hon. Friend recognise the pressure across the system? At Arrowe Park on the Wirral, staff made 48 extra beds available for the winter crisis and over Christmas, and in the event they had to make 40 more extra beds available by cancelling all elective surgery. Does he believe that this is the way to plan for the winter, and does he believe that the Department of Health made robust and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (19 Dec 2017)

Angela Eagle: On admissions to hospital for malnutrition, will the Minister tell me what has been happening at Wirral University Teaching hospital? Admissions for malnutrition went up from 21 in 2009-10 to 707 in 2014-15. They went up again to 728 and this year currently stand at 586. That seems very, very high. Can anyone tell me what is going on? If not, will Ministers write to me to explain these huge...

EU Exit Negotiations (5 Dec 2017)

Angela Eagle: Yesterday, our Prime Minister was humiliated by having the rug pulled from under her by the DUP. Was she not naive even to attempt to do a deal of the sort she tried to do, knowing that the DUP would inevitably veto it? With the negotiations in such fantastic hands, will the Secretary of State now admit that the only way to move forward without a hard border in Northern Ireland, to protect...

Social Mobility Commission (4 Dec 2017)

Angela Eagle: The Minister is doing his best to ignore the fact that the entire board of the social mobility commission has resigned. Why does he think that is? Can he give us an answer?

Leaving the Eu: Sectoral Impact Assessments (28 Nov 2017)

Angela Eagle: This is not my definition of taking back control. This huge mess that the Government have got themselves into shows the limits of their clever-clever tactic of not engaging with Opposition motions by sitting on their hands. Despite what the Minister says, the fact is that a Humble Address, which it is compulsory for the Government to act on, has been carried. It calls not for the documents to...

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Angela Eagle: It is a pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for Wokingham (John Redwood). The Office for Budget Responsibility forecast, which was published today, has demonstrated that we are in a downgraded economy. Real wages are down, business investment is down and productivity is downgraded now and far into the future. It is therefore no wonder that growth is down from the Chancellor’s...

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Angela Eagle: The right hon. Gentleman has just spoken; he can go off and advise his clients on investing their money abroad. The Conservative party saw an opportunity to pursue a minimal state agenda in the aftermath of the global financial crash, and it has done so at great cost to many. It made a deliberate choice that cuts to public spending would bear 80% of the cost of eliminating the deficit and...

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Angela Eagle: That is absolutely right. Merseyside police will have suffered cuts of £183 million by 2021 and is 1,000 officers and 700 support staff down. It is little wonder that crime levels are now the highest in a decade. Madam Deputy Speaker, I could go on, but I think you get the point. Austerity has exacted a brutal cost from the most vulnerable. This Budget takes place against a backdrop of...

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Angela Eagle: I would certainly buy a second-hand car from the right hon. Gentleman. The Chancellor, who is regarded with the utmost suspicion by the Brextremists on his own side, was warned at the weekend that he had to produce a game-changer of a Budget or his career would be over. They want rid of him because they do not think he is Eurosceptic enough. The Prime Minister has already shown her faith in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (15 Nov 2017)

Angela Eagle: Earlier in the year, the Prime Minister told the country that she was the only person who could offer strong and stable leadership in the national interest. With her Cabinet crumbling before her eyes, can she tell us how it is going?

Hospital Car Parking Charges (Abolition): Tax Avoidance and Evasion (14 Nov 2017)

Angela Eagle: Does my right hon. Friend agree that one of the best ways of trying to deal with this increasingly serious issue is to have openness and transparency in all funds held offshore, so that those who are doing this have to face the legitimate scrutiny of taxpayers in this country?
