Coronavirus (3 Mar 2020)

Rosie Cooper: The Secretary of State will know that there is a system whereby those who are immunosuppressed are not required to sit in crowded waiting rooms in hospital or A&E. That is in normal conditions, never mind the situation with covid-19. Yesterday evening, I attended Aintree Hospital with a patient who had just finished her first round of chemotherapy. Despite the chemo-aware system, she was...

Cabinet Office: Civil Service Reform (22 Jan 2020)

Rosie Cooper: What plans the Government have to reform the civil service.

Cabinet Office: Civil Service Reform (22 Jan 2020)

Rosie Cooper: The Institute for Government estimates that the number of civil servants based in London is growing, with two thirds now working in the capital. How does the Minister reconcile that with the Prime Minister’s statements about moving Whitehall Departments to the north of England and making Government more relevant to people in the north, for example my constituents in West Lancashire?

Education: Topical Questions (20 Jan 2020)

Rosie Cooper: As nursery schools in my constituency are threatened with closure, may I ask the Secretary of State what assessment he has made of the adequacy of funding for local councils to fund children’s services and nursery provision? We cannot have nurseries close like this.

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (22 Oct 2019)

Rosie Cooper: Prime Minister, my constituents voted to leave, by 55% to 45%, but they want to ensure and believe—and it is a question of trust—that there will be certainty and decent rights for all workers as we leave the EU, and in the future. I welcome the announcement of an employment reform Bill, but given that he had his pen out in answer to my hon. Friend the Member for Batley and Spen (Tracy...

Children and Mental Health Services — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (16 Jul 2019)

Rosie Cooper: To reiterate that point, does the hon. Gentleman agree that this is a state of emergency? In my constituency, the parents of a 12-year-old boy are being advised that there is a 72-week wait for their son to get help, even though there is a risk of serious self-harm.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (16 Jul 2019)

Rosie Cooper: Could the Secretary of State respond to the findings of Citizens Advice that utility companies have overcharged customers by £24 billion over 15 years?

20 Years of Devolution: Leasehold Reform (11 Jul 2019)

Rosie Cooper: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Sheffield South East (Mr Betts) for presenting the report on leasehold for debate. Before I make my observations, I must declare my interest as I am one of the many thousands to have been caught in the leasehold trap. It appears that we have 18th-century practices operating at 21st-century prices and, more fundamentally, that a person’s home is not...

Dangerous Driving — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (8 Jul 2019)

Rosie Cooper: I just cannot imagine the pain that Violet-Grace’s parents feel. As my hon. Friend indicated, two years ago the Government promised to introduce life sentences for death by dangerous driving and create a new offence of causing serious injury by careless driving. Many families across this country—including my constituent Mr Addy from Burscough, whose daughter was mown down in 2016 by a...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Digital Skills: Elderly in Rural Areas (11 Apr 2019)

Rosie Cooper: In December, Ofcom recommended that 40% of video-on-demand content should be provided with subtitles within two years and 80% within four years. Will the Minister say whether she is prepared to introduce secondary legislation to ensure that that is done within a decent timeframe?

Points of Order (3 Apr 2019)

Rosie Cooper: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. May I crave your indulgence? With only sentencing left, I would like to take the opportunity to thank the Prime Minister, the Leader of the Opposition and every single Member of this House for the kindness they have shown me over the last two difficult years. I would also like to thank Robbie Mullen and Hope not Hate, because without their actions I might not...

Permitted Development and Shale Gas Exploration (28 Mar 2019)

Rosie Cooper: Will my hon. Friend acknowledge that it was the elected members on Lancashire County Council who voted not to have fracking at Preston New Road, and that it is the Government who turned their back on those people—my constituents? Despite all their nods to localism, what the Government are saying is that localism and local opinion is well and truly buried.

Permitted Development and Shale Gas Exploration (28 Mar 2019)

Rosie Cooper: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (28 Mar 2019)

Rosie Cooper: The Government declared in response to the Somerset flooding that “money is no object”. This week, ground investigation works are starting on a £40 million flood risk management scheme for Preston and South Ribble. Will the Minister explain why a maximum bid of £1.3 million is available for the flood defence grant-in-aid fund for a project that cost £9.7 million to deliver, as outlined...

Integrated Care Regulations (18 Mar 2019)

Rosie Cooper: The House of Commons Library recently confirmed that 26 health service contracts worth more than £128 million are currently out to tender, on the basis of legislation that NHS England recently urged the Government to repeal. Does my hon. Friend not think that private companies should be blocked from securing these contracts, and that the Government should deal with the counter- productive...

Cabinet Office and Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Topical Questions (13 Mar 2019)

Rosie Cooper: On Sunday, the BBC reported that Interserve is likely to go into administration on Friday. What steps is the Minister taking to protect jobs and pensions, should Interserve collapse?

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (19 Feb 2019)

Rosie Cooper: After reviews by ACAS, Capsticks and Dr Bill Kirkup, will the Minister outline how he intends to deliver justice for both staff and patients of the Liverpool Community Health NHS Trust? How will he ensure that the board members who disgracefully refused to give evidence to Kirkup will be held to account and made to give evidence in future investigations?
