Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Madeleine Moon: As part of the study that the hon. Gentleman has agreed to undertake, will he look at the value to coastal towns of recreational fishing? In 2012, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs estimated that it was £2 billion a year. My angling shops, my coastal bed and breakfasts and my hotels all benefit from bass fishing, but the moratorium on anglers taking sea bass is a...

Prison Reform and Safety (7 Dec 2017)

Madeleine Moon: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Prison Reform and Safety (7 Dec 2017)

Madeleine Moon: Did the hon. Gentleman visit Parc prison during the Committee’s investigation? Its fantastic work with Invisible Walls Wales is making a huge difference to people’s attitudes to prison, as it shows that prison can change the lives of prisoners and their families, and prevent reoffending.

Social Care (7 Dec 2017)

Madeleine Moon: A recent Barnardo’s report showed that two thirds of child carers start caring in primary school, some as young as four, with long-term damage to their mental and emotional health. Will the Minister ensure that one of the Government’s primary responsibilities is to tackle the issue of child carers and take them out of a responsibility that we really should not be placing upon them?

Youth Employment — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (6 Dec 2017)

Madeleine Moon: We have a system that will allow us to record the debate, but we might not be able to broadcast. If the hon. Lady is happy, we may proceed.

Youth Employment — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (6 Dec 2017)

Madeleine Moon: Order. I advise Members that we are now recording again, and have been for most of the hon. Lady’s speech. We have very limited time. I am not going to impose a time limit, but I advise Members not to take more than six minutes, if they hope to allow other colleagues to get in.

Youth Employment — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (6 Dec 2017)

Madeleine Moon: I will have to stop the hon. Lady. We cannot proceed until the mics are working properly. We have an engineer on the way. I am not sure what this will do in knocking the rest of the day off in Westminster Hall, but we have to wait for the engineer, because otherwise we cannot broadcast the sound. Sitting suspended. On resuming—

Universal Credit Project Assessment Reviews (5 Dec 2017)

Madeleine Moon: Perhaps the hon. Gentleman, being new to this House, does not appreciate that mistakes made in one Department can often have financial consequences in another. Let me tell him the story of a constituent of mine who went eight weeks with no income—

Universal Credit Project Assessment Reviews (5 Dec 2017)

Madeleine Moon: My constituent had eight weeks with no income and three months with no rent. She was back on anti-depressants after five years of recovery. The consequences might not have been grave for universal credit, but they were huge for the health services in Wales and the local housing authority, and my constituent’s health was destroyed. If we get things wrong in one Department, there are...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Madeleine Moon: Will the hon. Gentleman give way.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Madeleine Moon: I just find this debate absolutely ironic. We talk about the power of the devolved Assemblies at a time when one individual, in a quick phone call with the Prime Minister, can scupper the whole policy and the whole plans for devolution. Nobody from the Democratic Unionist party is in the Chamber to argue their case. DUP Members will go into the Lobby to vote, but they will not come here to...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Madeleine Moon: The hon. Gentleman was a Member of the Welsh Assembly for some considerable time. Is he saying that if he were still there he would not be arguing in Wales, in the Welsh Assembly, for the powers in the 140 distinct policy areas that have devolved responsibility, many of them in relation to the environment, to come back to the Welsh Assembly? Would he be happy for the Westminster Parliament to...

Point of Order: Autism Community: Mental Health and Suicide (30 Nov 2017)

Madeleine Moon: One of the risks is that, rather than going to their GP, people will look on the internet, where, sadly, they will find far too much information about how to take their own life and what methods to use. Also, if they go into chatrooms to share, they find encouragement to take their own life. This is an area that we must tackle.

Point of Order: Autism Community: Mental Health and Suicide (30 Nov 2017)

Madeleine Moon: Does the hon. Lady recognise that another major problem for families of autistic children is that should one of their children take their own life, the postvention support—the after-suicide support—is not there either, so the social isolation that they experienced in life continues after death and complicates families’ grief? That area must also be tackled.

Point of Order: Autism Community: Mental Health and Suicide (30 Nov 2017)

Madeleine Moon: The hon. Lady will be aware that the societal body that is most likely to come into contact with someone who is likely to take their own life is the police. The police, and particularly the British Transport police, are doing critical work in assessing how staff can be trained to identify potential suicides and to take action to take people back at a time of crisis in their life in order to...

State Pension Age: Women (29 Nov 2017)

Madeleine Moon: I thank my hon. Friend for acknowledging the financial plight of many of these women. Women in my constituency have been forced to sell or remortgage their homes, and to spend the money they had set aside for retirement now so that they can exist, which will increase the poverty they experience in retirement. That has not been acknowledged at all by the Government.
