Rail Update (29 Nov 2017)

Jessica Morden: There was little mention of Wales in the Secretary of State’s letter to hon. Members on the great western consultation, yet key services run through my constituency. Just this morning, commuters to Bristol and beyond have yet again had to highlight the chronic lack of capacity as demand grows. Can he tell my constituents when they will see real action and improvement?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Rohingya People (21 Nov 2017)

Jessica Morden: What recent representations he has made to his counterpart in Myanmar on the treatment of the Rohingya people in that country.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Rohingya People (21 Nov 2017)

Jessica Morden: Three months on from the start of the current crisis, we all continue to be shocked and horrified by the tragic stories we see of the plight of the Rohingya people fleeing to Bangladesh and by the scale of the crisis. EU member states, as well as the US Congress, are reportedly considering reimposing some sanctions against Myanmar’s leaders. What discussions have Ministers had on that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Swansea Main Line: Electrification (1 Nov 2017)

Jessica Morden: I associate myself and the Opposition with the condolences paid by the Secretary of State to those affected by the fire—our thoughts are with them. Does the Secretary of State for Wales agree with Andrew R. T. Davies, the leader of the Welsh Conservative party, who said this week that electrification of the line to Swansea would be beneficial to Wales and should still take place? He...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Review of Legal Aid Reforms (31 Oct 2017)

Jessica Morden: Wales has seen one of the largest drops in legal aid providers, at 29%, particularly with regard to housing. Will the Government’s belated review of their deep cuts in legal aid look specifically at the impact of this?

Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill (20 Oct 2017)

Jessica Morden: While my hon. Friend is on the subject of Wales and the frequency of attacks, may I mention a real story that was recently relayed to me by a woman married to a police officer? She told me: “According to my children their father is the clumsiest dad ever, as we have had to tell them he ‘fell over a bin chasing someone’, ‘he walked into a Police cupboard door’,...

Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Jessica Morden: I am keenly aware that the full service roll-out is due to start in the Newport part of my constituency on 15 November. As has been made clear by my hon. Friend the Member for Oldham East and Saddleworth (Debbie Abrahams), and also by a host of organisations including Citizens Advice, Community Housing Cymru—which represents housing associations in Wales—the Trussell Trust, the...

Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Jessica Morden: I absolutely agree. The point is well made. I know that housing associations are doing all they can to help tenants, and that there are heavy demands on their advice services, not least when they are helping those who cannot go online. However, as Gingerbread has pointed out, two thirds of single parents are renting privately. What is happening to those with private landlords? Are they able...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Weekly Earnings (12 Sep 2017)

Jessica Morden: To ask the Secretary of State what steps he is taking to increase average weekly earnings.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Weekly Earnings (12 Sep 2017)

Jessica Morden: With average weekly real earnings lower than they were in 2007 and with the Institute for Fiscal Studies saying that the flatlining of real wages is unprecedented since at least the end of the second world war, does the Minister accept that Britain needs a pay rise? What are Ministers doing to tackle this?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (12 Sep 2017)

Jessica Morden: This week’s electricity grid connection deal would make the Cardiff tidal lagoon the UK’s largest renewable energy project, generating some of the cheapest power in the country, and it would be a big boost to Newport, but its potential can be realised only with the Government first backing the pilot project in Swansea bay. When will that happen?

Petition - Climate Change Objectives and Obligations: Tesco House, Cardiff: Job Losses (19 Jul 2017)

Jessica Morden: As my hon. Friend knows, job losses on this scale will be felt keenly not just in Cardiff but across south Wales. A constituent of mine who works for Tesco contacted me, saying: “I believe that what they (Tesco) have told the press is incorrect as I know they are outsourcing parts of their business to a site in Bury.” Does my hon. Friend agree that the company should be questioned...

Jessica Morden: Will the Minister give way?

Armed Forces: Closure of Sovereign House, Newport — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (19 Jul 2017)

Jessica Morden: Will the Minister publish the proposed budget for acquiring the land and for designing and building the proposed hub?

Armed Forces: Closure of Sovereign House, Newport — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (19 Jul 2017)

Jessica Morden: My hon. Friend quite rightly speaks about valuing the civil service jobs in both our constituencies, which we always speak up for. Does he agree that we not only risk losing the skills and expertise of those dedicated Department for Work and Pensions staff, but could end up spending vast amounts more by creating a more expensive super-hub that people will have difficulty travelling to?

Armed Forces: Closure of Sovereign House, Newport — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (19 Jul 2017)

Jessica Morden: Does my hon. Friend agree that it is unfortunate that the Public and Commercial Services Union and staff learned about this plan from a leak on an architect’s website before Ministers had a chance to do an equality impact assessment of the decision on staff? Does he agree that if the equality impact assessment shows, as we think it will, that staff with travel difficulties or caring...

Queen’s Speech: Implications for Wales — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (19 Jul 2017)

Jessica Morden: My hon. Friend also mentioned the Severn bridge tolls. The Conservative party had a very late conversion to scrapping the tolls during the election campaign, yet there was nothing about it in the Queen’s Speech. Does she agree that businesses and commuters in south Wales need clarity about what will happen next?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Supported Housing: Funding (17 Jul 2017)

Jessica Morden: When he plans to publish his Department's response to the consultation on funding for supported housing.

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Supported Housing: Funding (17 Jul 2017)

Jessica Morden: There are 38,500 people in supported accommodation in Wales, and landlords say that decisions about future developments are being delayed due to uncertainty about future funding. Will the Minister confirm that any proposals, devolved or not, will properly fund current and future needs in Wales, especially given Wales’s ageing population?

Contaminated Blood (11 Jul 2017)

Jessica Morden: I want to speak in this debate on behalf of my constituents Lin Ashcroft and the Smith family, victims of the contaminated blood scandal. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Oxford East (Anneliese Dodds) on an excellent maiden speech. She rightly highlighted the importance of the campaign and her local campaigners, and we look forward to hearing many more speeches from her. I also...
