Maria Eagle: rose—

Iran: Vauxhall (Redundancies) (16 Oct 2017)

Maria Eagle: Thank you, Mr Speaker; it is not helpful to call it a contest. The Minister keeps saying that she wants frictionless access to the single market, but most of her colleagues in Government, in particular many in the Cabinet, are talking up the idea of leaving with no deal and walking out of the single market and the customs union. Given that the Ellesmere Port plant is weakened by going to a...

Education Funding (South Liverpool) (10 Oct 2017)

Maria Eagle: I beg to move, That this House has considered education funding in south Liverpool. I am grateful to have obtained this debate about education funding in south Liverpool. I intend to discuss a situation in my part of the Liverpool City Council area and in Halewood, which is in the Garston and Halewood constituency but falls within the Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council area. Some of my...

Education Funding (South Liverpool) (10 Oct 2017)

Maria Eagle: I will indeed—and I think my hon. Friend has himself just pushed the Minister for a response. I am sure the Minister will want to make some points in reply and set out his understanding of the impact of the national funding formula, which seems not to advantage schools in our area as much as I would like. Liverpool City Council told me that, according to its calculations, the Garston...

Education Funding (South Liverpool) (10 Oct 2017)

Maria Eagle: My right hon. Friend is correct. He and I, as representatives of the borough, know that there is an issue of attainment in Knowsley schools. It is a long-standing one, which we continue to try to tackle, as Governments of all stripes have tried to do. It is certainly not ameliorated and improved by taking money away from schools. That will just deepen and worsen the attainment gap that is...

Education Funding (South Liverpool) (10 Oct 2017)

Maria Eagle: I believe it will be—my right hon. Friend is correct. That is essential. I hope that we can make a difference and that the Government will come through to help us get academic A-level provision back in the borough, because if that does not happen, in due course—this will not take long—young families will not locate themselves in Knowsley. They will not think it is a place to...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Cultural Industries (14 Sep 2017)

Maria Eagle: What steps she is taking to protect the interests of cultural industries after the UK exits the EU.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Cultural Industries (14 Sep 2017)

Maria Eagle: Given that leaving the EU will result in new rules that restrict freedom of movement, and with music exports growing enormously and worth more than £4 billion to the UK economy, what will the Secretary of State do to ensure that the UK’s touring musicians—they and their crews can, at the moment, just go to Europe to play—do not face the logistical nightmare and extra...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Energy Supply (12 Sep 2017)

Maria Eagle: What steps he is taking to ensure the security of the UK’s energy supply after the UK leaves the EU.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Energy Supply (12 Sep 2017)

Maria Eagle: Does the Minister accept that it is vital that we stay in the European internal energy market after Brexit in order to facilitate tariff-free trading of gas and electricity across borders, which we currently have? I know that the Department has been busy trying to find out why 20% of its staff have left without telling it why, according to a report in The Times, but when will the Government...

Schools Update (17 Jul 2017)

Maria Eagle: Figures from the Secretary of State’s Department showed that 21 schools in my constituency were to lose out under her plans for the national funding formula before her announcement today. I am concerned that they still will, so will she guarantee today that those schools that were going to lose out on the basis of the formula no longer will, and that they will actually see gains?

Business of the House (6 Jul 2017)

Maria Eagle: After Home Office questions on Monday—when the Home Secretary claimed police funding had been protected, although it has not been on Merseyside—there was yet another firearms discharge in my constituency. That makes over 100 shootings across Merseyside in the last 18 months, including five murders. May we have a debate in Government time about the increase in gun crime across...

Jobcentre Plus: Closures (6 Jul 2017)

Maria Eagle: Does the Secretary of State accept that requiring some sick and disabled people to travel further to attend compulsory interviews is likely to lead to more cost, hardship and worry for our most vulnerable constituents who are looking for jobs? What will he do to ensure that his plans do not leave these vulnerable people to be hit the hardest?

Adult Social Care Funding (6 Jul 2017)

Maria Eagle: Liverpool City Council spends more on adult social care than it is able to raise in council tax, yet still has more of a cut to make, and pays a very low level of fees as a consequence. Can the Minister give an assurance that councils such as Liverpool will not be further disadvantaged when he rolls out the extra funding he is promising to try to improve this situation?

Women and Equalities: New Mothers (Redundancy Protection) (6 Jul 2017)

Maria Eagle: Given the Minister’s view about this, will she take up the issue of tribunal fees, which a previous Government, of which she was a one-time member, increased significantly? Does she not accept that charging a huge fee to take a case to tribunal is one of the biggest reasons why women who have been discriminated against cannot enforce their rights?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (3 Jul 2017)

Maria Eagle: Merseyside police have had to cut £87 million and more than 1,000 officers and staff since 2010 and, notwithstanding the Home Secretary’s bizarre claim earlier that police budgets had been protected, they are now being expected to cut a further £18 million over the next three years, leading to 540 staff and officers being placed under threat while tackling a gun crime wave...

Debate on the Address: Education and Local Services (27 Jun 2017)

Maria Eagle: I accept the Minister’s point that councils provide important services, but can he explain why Liverpool City Council will have lost 68% of its resource by 2020-21?

Debate on the Address: Education and Local Services (27 Jun 2017)

Maria Eagle: The Prime Minister has endured a torrid few weeks—she has gone from Wonder Woman to the Joker in one spectacular electoral pratfall. We see the parlous state of her diminishing authority and of her Government’s capacity to govern in this damp squib of a legislative programme. Apart from the preparations for implementing our exit from the EU, for which almost half the country did...

Grenfell Tower (22 Jun 2017)

Maria Eagle: The Prime Minister confirmed in her statement that testing arrangements have discovered combustible cladding on some tower blocks in other parts of the country. Given that people living in those tower blocks are perhaps going to fear more than others the consequences of that discovery, what steps can the Prime Minister take to ensure that the landlords and the local authorities where these...

Grenfell Tower (22 Jun 2017)

Maria Eagle: Just say it!
