Uk Shared Prosperity Fund: British House Building Industry (5 Sep 2019)

Siobhain McDonagh: I absolutely agree with my hon. Friend, and I know that he works really hard on that subject. Just like the issues about the whole planning system, that could be the topic of another debate, to which I am sure we would both want to contribute. The median pay for FTSE 100 house building CEOs is 228 times that of the typical UK construction worker.

Uk Shared Prosperity Fund: British House Building Industry (5 Sep 2019)

Siobhain McDonagh: I think the hon. Gentleman has stolen the words of the hon. Member for South Norfolk (Mr Bacon), who also does loads of work on self-build. It is an issue that small and medium-sized builders have been squeezed out, but unfortunately I do not have time to address that matter today. Let me return to the matter of pay ratios. At Barratt, the pay ratio between median executive pay and median...

The Prime Minister Was Asked: Engagements (4 Sep 2019)

Siobhain McDonagh: If he will list his official engagements for Wednesday 4 September.

The Prime Minister Was Asked: Engagements (4 Sep 2019)

Siobhain McDonagh: May I associate myself with the comments about the brave acts of the police officers? On Brexit, the former Prime Minister’s deal was unacceptable to this House, but to leave without a deal is unthinkable, yet the Prime Minister pursues a game of brinksmanship built on the livelihoods, health and future of my constituents and our country. There is still an option to resolve this once and...

Summer Adjournment (25 Jul 2019)

Siobhain McDonagh: It is a true pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for York Central (Rachael Maskell), who spoke so passionately and knowledgeably about her constituency. In my contribution, I wish to highlight two incredibly important services both for my constituency and for the wider area. The National School Breakfast Programme provides free breakfasts to 1,775 schools in our country, feeding...

Summer Adjournment (25 Jul 2019)

Siobhain McDonagh: As the hon. Gentleman will be aware, although I am highlighting and he has met with Shooting Star, funding is an issue for all children’s hospices. The only way in which those 250 families can get the respite care they need from the hospice is by receiving £400,000 from the £14 million that the NHS has identified for children’s hospices in 2023-24. I regret to say that these children...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (22 Jul 2019)

Siobhain McDonagh: Mr S has been a brilliant private tenant for the past 12 years in his flat, always paying his rent on time, and decorating the flat and repairing it when necessary. He is also a great patriot, as a Royal Navy reservist. But none of this matters: in eight weeks, when his landlady issues him a section 21 notice, he will become homeless through no fault of his own. How is that right or fair?

Business of the House (18 Jul 2019)

Siobhain McDonagh: Ms Watson is a disabled single parent who is studying to become a children’s social worker. She gave all her information to the universal credit authorities correctly and on time. Some 18 months later, they uploaded the information; two years later, they decided that she had had an overpayment of £10,000. They have accepted that that is their fault and even paid her £100 in compensation...

EU Structural Funds: Least Developed Regions — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (26 Jun 2019)

Siobhain McDonagh: I am sorry, but Members must go down to three-minute speeches, so will everybody be circumspect about making interventions?

EU Structural Funds: Least Developed Regions — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (26 Jun 2019)

Siobhain McDonagh: Order. All Members can see that there is an awful lot of interest in the debate. I understand that it is important to lots of Members’ constituencies, so I ask you to work with me, and I apologise for imposing a limit of four minutes on each speech so that we ensure that everyone may speak on behalf of their constituents.

Written Answers — Department for Education: Academies (24 Jun 2019)

Siobhain McDonagh: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, pursuant to the Answer of 12 June 2019 to Question 259839 on Academies, how many of the 2,631 academies and free schools who do not have a sponsor were formerly sponsored.

Social Housing (13 Jun 2019)

Siobhain McDonagh: Both of my parents came to Britain from Ireland at the end of the 1940s, when there were postcards in the windows that said, “No Irish, no blacks, no dogs”. Does my hon. Friend agree that if there were such postcards today, they would just say, “No benefits”?

Social Housing (13 Jun 2019)

Siobhain McDonagh: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Warwick and Leamington (Matt Western) on his tireless work and campaigning on this incredibly important issue. I am sure that, as it is for me, 50% to 60% of the casework of every Member is on issues of social housing and the lack of it. We can look back at Labour’s record and think that we could have and should have done more, but let us not...

Social Housing (13 Jun 2019)

Siobhain McDonagh: I think that had many motives. One motive was to diminish social housing, but it had the consequence of putting housing associations at financial risk, leading to a terrible crisis and an expensive crisis. My hon. Friend the Member for Westminster North (Ms Buck) informed us of the amount of money that we are currently spending on housing benefit. If we reduce grant rates, we increase the...

Business of the House (13 Jun 2019)

Siobhain McDonagh: Mr Fearon delayed his pension for two years. He did not know, and he was not informed by the Department for Work and Pensions, that the law had changed, and that if he wanted to reclaim that backdated two years’ pension in a lump sum, he could get only one year, with the second year paid in instalments over 20 years. But Mr Fearon does not have 20 years. He has lung cancer and has had his...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Breakfast Clubs (13 Jun 2019)
