Local Government Finance (7 Feb 2018)

Louise Ellman: After all the consultations and discussions that the Secretary of State has held, is he in a position to revise his view that Liverpool City Council should lose 68% of its budget and have to face a crisis in children’s social care as well as in adult social care?

Palestinian Children and Israeli Military Detention (7 Feb 2018)

Louise Ellman: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Stringer. The failure of Israelis and Palestinians to negotiate a two-state solution to their conflict has resulted in a disturbing situation, including what we are discussing today; but the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will be resolved only by direct negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians —not by the Palestinian...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Carillion: Pension Protection (5 Feb 2018)

Louise Ellman: What steps she is taking to ensure support for former Carillion employees whose pensions will not be covered by the Pension Protection Fund.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Carillion: Pension Protection (5 Feb 2018)

Louise Ellman: The Government have presided over a regulatory scheme where a deficit of about £1 billion has been allowed to build up in the pension fund at the same time as shareholders were receiving dividends. Can the Secretary of State guarantee that all former Carillion employees will receive in full their due pension?

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill (30 Jan 2018)

Louise Ellman: I, too, welcome the Minister to her place. I support the Bill because it brings the potential benefits of HS2 to parts of the north earlier than was envisaged—2027 is a lot better than 2033. HS2 is visionary, but that vision will be realised only if the high-speed network is linked to the existing classic network and if regeneration takes place not just at high-speed rail stations, but...

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill (30 Jan 2018)

Louise Ellman: I agree with the hon. Lady. It would be a grave mistake to have a new high-speed line from London to Birmingham that stopped there and left the rest of the country to deal with lesser investment that will bring fewer economic development returns. We need both. The case has long been argued that Liverpool needs a direct link to the new high-speed line. I recognise that the existing plans will...

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill (30 Jan 2018)

Louise Ellman: I welcome the Bill, but I note that the Minister referred to connecting the west midlands to HS2. What about the northern powerhouse and Liverpool’s connection to the new high-speed line?

Proscription of Hezbollah (25 Jan 2018)

Louise Ellman: I gave examples of hate speech on our streets, but it appears that the police are reluctant or unable to take any action against it. Does the Minister not agree that that is appalling? Also, does he not agree that had Hezbollah been proscribed, the people on that march waving flags would simply not have been allowed to go ahead with their hate speech and incitement?

Proscription of Hezbollah (25 Jan 2018)

Louise Ellman: It is a great privilege to follow so many excellent contributions from all parts of the House. I thank my right hon. Friend the Member for Enfield North (Joan Ryan) for securing this extremely important debate and for her very powerful opening speech. Hezbollah is a radical Shi’a Islamist terrorist organisation founded in Iran soon afterthe 1979 revolution. It is an anti-Semitic...

Proscription of Hezbollah (25 Jan 2018)

Louise Ellman: The hon. Gentleman makes a very important point. I will refer to the Grenfell Tower disaster in a moment. All this is inciting violence, hatred and division on the streets of the UK. This is happening as anti-Semitic offences in this country reach record levels, as shown in the recent Community Security Trust report. There are many other disturbing recent examples of incitement to hatred, and...

Proscription of Hezbollah (25 Jan 2018)

Louise Ellman: The hon. Gentleman makes a good point that should be pursued. My discussions with the Metropolitan police made it clear that its decisions on how to deal with individual incidents are to do with the legal situation at the time, the need for freedom of expression and the police’s interpretation of how those two aspects interact. Opinions are important, but so is incitement on our...

Carillion and Public Sector Outsourcing (24 Jan 2018)

Louise Ellman: It is good to see you back in the Chair, Mr Deputy Speaker. I will focus on the impact of Carillion’s collapse on the completion of the new Royal Liverpool Hospital. I am extremely concerned about subcontractors that have not been paid for work done, apprentices uncertain of their future, pensions at risk and the prospect of workers losing their jobs. However, in the short time...

RBS Global Restructuring Group and Smes: Holocaust Memorial Day (18 Jan 2018)

Louise Ellman: I congratulate the hon. Member for Brigg and Goole (Andrew Percy) on securing this important debate and on his powerful and inspiring speech. I, too, was privileged to attend Tuesday’s reception in the Speaker’s apartments to mark Holocaust Memorial Day, which was organised by the Holocaust Educational Trust. To be in the presence of Holocaust survivors, and to speak to such...

RBS Global Restructuring Group and Smes: Holocaust Memorial Day (18 Jan 2018)

Louise Ellman: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his comments. I draw his attention to the official statement about what Holocaust Memorial Day constitutes. It states very clearly that in addition to recognising the holocaust, it recognises other atrocities that have taken place since that time, including in Darfur and Cambodia. That has always been written into the official remit of Holocaust Memorial Day.

RBS Global Restructuring Group and Smes: Holocaust Memorial Day (18 Jan 2018)

Louise Ellman: The hon. Gentleman makes an extremely important point. Indeed, the people he named and others who contributed similar actions are recognised under a special category of the “righteous gentiles”. They are recognised in the Yad Vashem memorial in Jerusalem and also recognised in special British honours. They therefore have a very special place in our history and our minds. Today we...

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

Louise Ellman: The information the Minister provides is, of course, welcome, and we are familiar with those announcements. Does he agree that the people in Liverpool, and Merseyside generally, who are going hungry—the people to whom Labour Members are referring today—are those who are, in the words of the Prime Minister, “left out”? What is he going to do about it?

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

Louise Ellman: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir David. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Liverpool, West Derby (Stephen Twigg) on securing this debate on such an important issue. We should be clear that it is an absolute disgrace that there are so many people suffering from hunger and poor nutrition in this prosperous country in 2018. Food poverty is, of course, part of...

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

Louise Ellman: My hon. Friend makes an extremely important point. The work of food banks is excellent and very much appreciated, but of course they depend on the food that is given to them, and she has pointed out some of the consequences. Liverpool City Council has done a great deal, and I have referred to some of that work, but it cannot solve the problem that the Government have created. Although the...

Carillion (15 Jan 2018)

Louise Ellman: Despite the Minister’s comments, I remain deeply concerned about the future of the new Royal Liverpool University Hospital. When will the new arrangements be made and when will the hospital be completed? The people of Liverpool must not pay the price for Carillion’s failure.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Iran (9 Jan 2018)

Louise Ellman: What steps is the Foreign Secretary taking to combat the growing influence of Iran in both Syria and Lebanon, with weapons focused on Israel, a state that it wishes to annihilate?
