Valedictory Debate (5 Nov 2019)

Stephen Twigg: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for North Devon (Peter Heaton-Jones). I will start, if I may, by thanking everyone with whom I have had the honour to work in this place. In particular, I wish to put on record my thanks to my amazing staff both in the constituency and here in Parliament. I had the privilege to serve for eight years the constituency in which I grew up and where most...

An important element of soft power is our commitment to international development.

Disability-inclusive Development — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (31 Oct 2019)

Stephen Twigg: Thank you, Mr Evans, not only for your chairmanship today but for your service on the Committee. I wish the Committee well in future. You anticipated one of the things I was going to say, as did the Minister. He made the point that in my four and a half years as Chair of the Committee, there have been five Secretaries of State for International Development, but what has been striking has...

Liverpool City Council Funding (29 Oct 2019)

Stephen Twigg: I am a strong supporter of the city region devolution. The deal the Minister describes is welcome. However, the strong sense in Liverpool is that what the Government have given the city region with one hand does not make up for what they had taken away with the other, particularly from some of our most deprived communities. Does he recognise that concern?

Liverpool City Council Funding (29 Oct 2019)

Stephen Twigg: I welcome the additional powers for the city region Mayor, and I pay tribute to Steve Rotheram for his work. I absolutely echo what the Minister said about the renaissance in the city centre, but I represent suburban east Liverpool, and it does not always feel that way in some of the communities that I represent. They are much more reliant on the council services that I focused on in my...

Liverpool City Council Funding (29 Oct 2019)

Stephen Twigg: I beg to move, That this House has considered the funding of Liverpool City Council. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir George. Liverpool has borne the brunt of a decade of austerity. Massive cuts in Government funding have hit the council hard, combined with benefit changes that have hit the poorest and most vulnerable hardest. I pay tribute to all those who work across...

Liverpool City Council Funding (29 Oct 2019)

Stephen Twigg: The hon. Lady’s intervention precisely anticipates my next paragraph. At that unprecedented meeting, members of the Labour, Liberal Democrat, Green and Liberal parties agreed unanimously on a call for urgent action from the Treasury. Liverpool MPs, led by my hon. Friend the Member for Garston and Halewood (Maria Eagle), have echoed the call for an urgent meeting with the Secretary of...

Liverpool City Council Funding (29 Oct 2019)

Stephen Twigg: The hon. Lady is absolutely right to put on the record the amazing contribution that LCVS makes, as do similar councils in other parts of the country. In the 12 years that I have been in Liverpool, I have been struck by the strong sense of community and the sorts of organisations that come out of some of the most socially and economically deprived communities, some of which I mentioned. I can...

Liverpool City Council Funding (29 Oct 2019)

Stephen Twigg: I thank my hon. Friend and neighbour for his kind words, and I echo his comments about our friend, the hon. Member for Liverpool, Wavertree (Luciana Berger). He is absolutely right about the impact of universal credit and, before that, other changes—for example, the reductions in disability benefits and the introduction of the bedroom tax. That combination of factors has been significant...
