Backbench Business: Deafness and Hearing Loss — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (30 Nov 2017)

Steve McCabe: I understand that the sign language is being filmed today, and when the debate is re-broadcast it will appear in a box, as is normal in other TV transmissions. Obviously this is an early stage. I will report back on how the whole debate goes and any points that Members raise, but I understand that the arrangements for today are that when the debate is re-broadcast, the sign language will appear.

Backbench Business: Deafness and Hearing Loss — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (30 Nov 2017)

Steve McCabe: I draw hon. Members’ attention to the fact that our proceedings are being made accessible for people who are deaf or have problems with hearing, and the interpreters are using British Sign Language. If Members bear that in mind while making their contributions, that will be helpful for everyone.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (29 Nov 2017)

Steve McCabe: At the present rate of progress, it will take the three officials at the First Secretary’s old Department more than 70 years to investigate the claims of around 4,500 WASPI women who are being deprived of their state pension. I know that this Government are slow, but is this not adding insult to injury?

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (27 Nov 2017)

Steve McCabe: The most striking features of the Budget are the parts the Chancellor tried to ignore: growth and wages. After all we have been through, and after all the promises about long-term economic plans, austerity and building for the future, the reality is that average earnings will be no higher in 2022 than they were in 2007. We are heading for the worst decade for pay growth for 210 years. Given...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (27 Nov 2017)

Steve McCabe: I will not, because we have only a short time left and other Members want to speak. It is disappointing that the partial response to the problems with universal credit is being delayed. That issue was raised by 94% of people who responded to my survey. They will not understand why the Government are only cutting the waiting time to five weeks, or why we need to wait another three months for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (20 Nov 2017)

Steve McCabe: Does the Home Office accept that there are some areas of police activity—tackling aggressive antisocial behaviour and domestic violence, and some aspects of counter-terrorism work—that are in danger of being severely undermined unless additional specific resources are made available, especially for efficient and hard-pressed forces such as West Midlands?

Backbench Business: Support for Care Leavers — [Mrs Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (16 Nov 2017)

Steve McCabe: I do not get that many opportunities to praise Birmingham City Council, but it is one of the authorities that apply the exemption. Will the Minister consider writing to her colleagues at DCLG to ask them to publish a full list of the councils that exempt care leavers from council tax? Quite rightly, that is not something the Government can do, but it is a practice that almost all councils...

Backbench Business: Support for Care Leavers — [Mrs Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (16 Nov 2017)

Steve McCabe: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mrs Gillan. I congratulate the hon. Member for Brentwood and Ongar (Alex Burghart) on securing this important debate. As I listened to him, I was pleased to note that he and I have quite a common view on many of the issues. He was very clear in his opening remarks; there is a danger that we might forget that when we use the term “care...

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

Steve McCabe: When ordinary people hear the Budget next week and have to think about their taxes against the background of inflation in food prices, will they not wonder why the Members opposite are hellbent on avoiding any inquiry into aggressive tax avoidance?

Israel: Meetings (7 Nov 2017)

Steve McCabe: I also have great respect for the right hon. Gentleman, but even he must concede that the more we hear about this affair, the murkier it sounds. May we have an assurance that DFID will publish a summary of all discussions that took place in the months prior to this holiday within the Department that had any connection to Israel or any organisations in Israel, and may we have a summary of all...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (7 Nov 2017)

Steve McCabe: The Committee on Climate Change and a range of respected experts all point out that the existing clean growth strategy will fail on the fifth carbon budget and on the Paris commitments. The Minister must have some additional measures in mind. What are they?

Paradise Papers (6 Nov 2017)

Steve McCabe: Does the Minister accept that the scale of aggressive avoidance exposed by these revelations shows that the general anti-abuse rule introduced in 2013 is not working and that what we need is general anti-avoidance legislation so that there is no room for doubt and no room for manoeuvre?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Efficiency Savings (6 Nov 2017)

Steve McCabe: What progress she has made on identifying the departmental efficiency savings of £1.3 billion announced in July 2017.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Efficiency Savings (6 Nov 2017)

Steve McCabe: I cannot say that that was a terribly revealing answer, but the Minister for School Standards did better in a recent letter, in which he said that, over three years, the Department will cut about £1 billion from the free schools programme, which he was lauding a second ago, and 37% from the healthy living project. Is that how the Secretary of State is trying to compensate for the cuts...

Children’s Oral Health — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (31 Oct 2017)

Steve McCabe: I thank the Minister and all Members who have taken part in a thoughtful and well-informed debate. I think that £130 million a year clawed back by the Treasury in unused units of dental activity could be put to much better use, and I wish the Minister well in his battle with the Treasury on that. I was pleased to hear what he said about the dental contract, although I think that two...

Children’s Oral Health — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (31 Oct 2017)

Steve McCabe: The hon. Lady is making an excellent speech. I am conscious that this debate is about children’s oral health, but does she accept that, given the growth in the elderly population, the problems that she has indicated will only get worse if we do not have better registration and intervention?

Children’s Oral Health — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (31 Oct 2017)

Steve McCabe: I beg to move, That this House has considered childhood oral health. Good morning, Mr Bone; it is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship today. I am glad that we have been granted this debate by the Backbench Business Committee, because child tooth decay represents a much bigger public health issue than appears to have been recognised so far. It is a problem affecting millions of...

Children’s Oral Health — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (31 Oct 2017)

Steve McCabe: I absolutely agree with my hon .Friend. That gives us some sense of the scale of the problem. Those 160 operations every single day are not only detrimental to the health and wellbeing of the children; they are also costly to the NHS. In the financial year 2015-16, more than £50 million was spent on tooth extractions for those aged 0 to 19. The average cost of a tooth extraction for a...

Children’s Oral Health — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (31 Oct 2017)

Steve McCabe: I absolutely agree with the hon. Lady. An education programme for young children and their parents is crucial. I want the Government to play a bigger role, but there are other approaches, too. As I have said, Simplyhealth is supporting the venture in the city of Hull and in East Riding of Yorkshire, as well as in the hon. Lady’s constituency. A pilot programme called Starting Well is...
