Women and Equalities: Domestic Abuse: Health Priorities (17 May 2018)

Sharon Hodgson: What discussions she has had with Cabinet colleagues on treating domestic abuse as a health priority.

Women and Equalities: Domestic Abuse: Health Priorities (17 May 2018)

Sharon Hodgson: I thank the Minister for her answer. She may be aware that, according to the SafeLives report published last year, early intervention through hospitals can reach four out of five victims who would not have reported the abuse to the police. Will she therefore outline what plans her Government have to ensure that all hospitals, in their A&E and maternity units, have onsite domestic abuse...

Fortified Flour (16 May 2018)

Sharon Hodgson: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hanson; I think it is the first time I have had such a pleasure. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Pontypridd (Owen Smith) for securing the debate and for his eloquent speech. As always, he showed his knowledge and passion on this important topic. I also thank the hon. Member for East Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow (Dr Cameron),...

NHS 70th Anniversary — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (16 May 2018)

Sharon Hodgson: Mr Hosie, it is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship this morning in this very important debate. I start by thanking my hon. Friend the Member for Blaenau Gwent (Nick Smith) for securing the debate and for his excellent speech. He is rightly proud of his roots in his wonderful constituency and the connection that it holds with Nye Bevan and the founding of the NHS. I am sure that he...

NHS 70th Anniversary — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (16 May 2018)

Sharon Hodgson: Absolutely. That point had not been covered, so I am pleased that my hon. Friend has made it. There is best practice in Wales, and even in Scotland—we are always hearing in these debates about some of the wonderful things going on in Scotland, aren’t we, Minister? We should learn from where there is best practice. Where good things are happening, that knowledge should be spread...

Delegated Legislation: Environment Agency: Enforcement Action (14 May 2018)

Sharon Hodgson: The Minister has plenty of time as we have until 10.30 pm, unless he has a pressing engagement—although what could be more pressing than talking about environmental issues in my constituency? On that point, the Minister will appreciate that fly-tipping is very different from the issue I raised today. Waste is flying off the back of lorries, which are supposed to be netted, and on to the...

Delegated Legislation: Environment Agency: Enforcement Action (14 May 2018)

Sharon Hodgson: I am very grateful to the Minister for giving way. I know he has given some assurances but, with the summer months approaching, I doubt that my constituents—they will be watching in large numbers, even though this debate has been held sooner than might have been thought, so they may be watching later—will be as reassured, given that they are the ones who are living with this day...

Delegated Legislation: Environment Agency: Enforcement Action (14 May 2018)

Sharon Hodgson: This is my first end of day Adjournment debate in a very long time; however, I am glad to have secured it as it gives me the chance to raise an ongoing issue in my constituency that has been a source of great consternation to me and many of the residents of Teal Farm and the areas adjacent to the Pattinson Road waste processing sites cluster, which I will refer to collectively as Teal Farm,...

Delegated Legislation: Environment Agency: Enforcement Action (14 May 2018)

Sharon Hodgson: I certainly agree with the hon. Gentleman. I am pleased with his intervention, and I will come on to fines later, as that is the crux of what I am proposing. To help the Minister understand fully the scale of the problems that my constituents have faced, I want to read a few excerpts from some emails I have received over the years. I assure him that he will find them both troubling and...

Delegated Legislation: Environment Agency: Enforcement Action (14 May 2018)

Sharon Hodgson: Yes, I agree with my right hon. Friend, and that is not an issue that I had planned to cover in my speech, so I am pleased that he has raised it. I am sure that those on the Treasury Bench heard him. This issue has gone on for many, many years with many, many complaints and investigations, resulting in significant resources being directed at addressing the problems by the Environment Agency,...

Delegated Legislation: Environment Agency: Enforcement Action (14 May 2018)

Sharon Hodgson: I agree with my hon. Friend, and I remember the case she mentions in her constituency of Blaydon. In certain areas, such as driving along the A1231, people can see the plastic still in the trees. We now know that local councils do not have the resources to be picking up constantly after these companies, as they might have done years ago. It is therefore up to these businesses to be more...

Delegated Legislation: Environment Agency: Enforcement Action (14 May 2018)

Sharon Hodgson: I definitely agree with my right hon. Friend. That is why I felt the need to bring this debate to the House. I want to seek the Minister’s views on this matter, and find out what more he and his Department can do given the examples that I and other hon. Members have outlined. I have been trying for many months to secure this debate. It is incredibly interesting that, since I let it be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (14 May 2018)

Sharon Hodgson: As chair of the all-party group on art, craft and design in education, I welcome the Government’s recent announcement of extra funding for the arts. However, will the Minister explain what benefit that would bring to the majority of children who are missing out on arts education because of funding cuts, as evidenced by the recent BBC survey on this issue, especially as the new money...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Employment and Support Allowance (9 May 2018)

Sharon Hodgson: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, pursuant to the Written Statement of 15 March 2018, on Employment and Support Allowance, whether her Department has recruited the 400 new members of staff to assist with correcting underpayments that may have occurred as a result of how a proportion of Incapacity Benefit claims were transitioned to Employment and Support Allowance between...

Health and Social Care: Obesity (8 May 2018)

Sharon Hodgson: This August marks two years since the world’s first childhood obesity plan was published, but the Government’s plan, at just 13 pages, left a lot to be desired. More than 5.5 million children in this country are now officially classed as overweight or obese, with 140,000 classed as morbidly obese, as the hon. Member for South West Bedfordshire (Andrew Selous) mentioned. This is...
