Tenant Fees Bill: Prohibitions applying to landlords (5 Sep 2018)

Frank Field: May I mention a case involving my constituent, which is not uncommon in my constituency or in constituencies throughout the country? A young mother paid a deposit of £595 to her landlord for a wet, mildewed house in Rock Ferry in Birkenhead. When she was driven out by the mould, the landlord claimed that the bins were not emptied by the local authority, so she lost her £595 deposit....

Tenant Fees Bill: Prohibitions applying to landlords (5 Sep 2018)

Frank Field: I am grateful to the Minister, and I will not intervene again, but there is no transporting of the deposit in my constituent’s case. She loses the deposit and then faces paying another deposit of £900 to get her rent payment day in line with her universal credit payments.

Widowed Parent’S Allowance (5 Sep 2018)

Frank Field: May I welcome the Minister back to the Treasury Bench, after a very short period with the Work and Pensions Committee? Might I say that there is some disappointment at the fact that more progress has not been made for him to report to the House today has not been made. In other areas of social security the cohabitation rule applies and evidence of cohabitation can be the evidence of male...

The Secretary of State’S Handling of Universal Credit (11 Jul 2018)

Frank Field: An apology: I was in the House when somebody repeated that campaign phrase against the Secretary of State. I was stunned by what was said, and I hope that she will forgive me for not getting up immediately to object to it. I apologise for my total failure to respond as a human being when that was said, and I hope that she forgives me if I do not actually recite what was said, because such...

The Secretary of State’S Handling of Universal Credit (11 Jul 2018)

Frank Field: One last point: Back Benchers can apologise only for our own action or inaction. That is my apology. In this debate, one wonders what truth is and what facts are. When reading the NAO report, I reached totally different conclusions to the Secretary of State. I thought the message was that the Comptroller and Auditor General was perplexed beyond belief that he could not recommend to go back or...

The Secretary of State’S Handling of Universal Credit (11 Jul 2018)

Frank Field: Yes, indeed, but I am really anxious to respond to the Secretary of State’s wish that we work together. The building block of working together is to take that key sentence from the NAO report, whatever else it said, about a pause—not to scrap universal credit, but to have a pause—to make sure that in three respects we are not party to inflicting untold misery, horror and...

The Secretary of State’S Handling of Universal Credit (11 Jul 2018)

Frank Field: I give way willingly.

The Secretary of State’S Handling of Universal Credit (11 Jul 2018)

Frank Field: That is wonderful news, but after the right hon. Lady has considered debt and decided on it there is the business about real-time information. This is not under her control as the information is supplied to her by another Department. It is not real and it is not on time, so perhaps she could look at that as the next item on the list. There is also the crucial business of universal support. I...

Leaving the EU (9 Jul 2018)

Frank Field: I thank the Prime Minister for her statement. I join my right hon. Friend the Member for Leeds Central (Hilary Benn) in welcoming the Brexit Secretary to his place. Might I ask that time is found to visit the elected political leaders of Europe to seek support for this plan, rather than just depend on the bureaucrats in Brussels?

Universal Credit (5 Jul 2018)

Frank Field: (Urgent Question): Will the Secretary of State please use this opportunity to apologise for the three instances where she has dissembled on the National Audit Office report on universal credit?

Universal Credit (5 Jul 2018)

Frank Field: Innocent.

Universal Credit (5 Jul 2018)

Frank Field: We are grateful for the Secretary of State’s apology—again—for one aspect of her behaviour where the Comptroller and Auditor General criticised her for dissembling. There were two others. First, she told the House that the Comptroller and Auditor General had advised her to roll out faster, whereas he told her to pause so that vulnerable claimants would not be hit further....

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Points of Order (4 Jul 2018)

Frank Field: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I have given notice to you, for tomorrow’s agenda, to ask for an urgent question to follow up that statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Points of Order (4 Jul 2018)

Frank Field: You are an innovator, Mr Speaker.

Infected Blood Inquiry (2 Jul 2018)

Frank Field: On behalf of those families in Birkenhead who have been devastated by death and those who may face a similar fate, may I thank the right hon. Gentleman for his statement today? When the Prime Minister established the Hillsborough disaster inquiry, she broke the rules so that truth would emerge. She ruled, or got the whole Government to agree, that the onus was on Government to produce all the...

Infected Blood Inquiry (2 Jul 2018)

Frank Field: Not only the Health Secretary’s Department but all the Departments involved.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Universal Credit: Roll-out (2 Jul 2018)

Frank Field: Will the Secretary of State commission a report on real-time income, which for many of our constituents provides neither real-time information nor income and results in hardship, and publish that report?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: School Budgets (25 Jun 2018)

Frank Field: All Birkenhead schools, like schools throughout the country, suffer real cuts in their budgets. Will the Minister meet me to seek ways by which we automatically enrol all poor children for free school dinners, and, as importantly, the Government’s initiative, the school premium?
