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...

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

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 (Annaliese 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...

Business of the House (6 Jul 2017)

Jessica Morden: Colin Smith received contaminated blood in 1983, when he was just eight months old. That blood turned out to be from an Arkansas prison, and he died aged just seven, having spent his whole life fighting illness. Please, for Colin’s family and for all those affected, may we have an opportunity before the recess to debate the new reports that suggest that risks of contaminated blood were...

Jobcentre Plus: Closures (6 Jul 2017)

Jessica Morden: The DWP is proposing to relocate the service centre out of Newport to some location north of Cardiff, but the exact location is unclear. My hon. Friend the Member for Newport West (Paul Flynn) and I clearly want to keep those jobs, the expertise and the services. The centre provides 249 jobs right in the heart of our city. Will the Minister meet us, so that we can put the case in person?

Women and Equalities: Topical Questions (6 Jul 2017)

Jessica Morden: Two thirds of public sector workers are women, so they are disproportionately hit by the public sector pay cap. What is the Minister doing to argue the case for scrapping the cap?

State Pension Age for Women — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (5 Jul 2017)

Jessica Morden: I am grateful for the opportunity to join other hon. Members in speaking up for these women, who have worked hard all their life, working to a presumed retirement date, only to see the Government move the goalposts at the last minute, giving them little or no notice and, as we have heard, causing real financial hardship. This is the first such debate in this Parliament, but it is just the...

Business of the House (29 Jun 2017)

Jessica Morden: Given that there will be no Welsh questions before the recess, may we have an opportunity to question the Secretary of State for Wales on the Floor of the House about what he has been doing since the Government’s announcement of the deal with the DUP to ensure that Wales is not short-changed?

Badger Culling — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (27 Mar 2017)

Jessica Morden: I congratulate my hon. Friend on his excellent speech. As he concludes his remarks, does he agree that one thing the Minister could take from the debate is to look again at the Welsh Government’s experience, which has been less expensive, more humane and ultimately more effective?
