Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Plastic Waste Recycling (12 Jul 2018)

Jessica Morden: What steps he is taking to reduce the amount of plastic waste that the UK sends overseas for recycling.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Plastic Waste Recycling (12 Jul 2018)

Jessica Morden: Wales has the best recycling rate in the UK and the second best in Europe, and the Welsh Labour Government have the stated aim of being the first “refill nation”. Could not the Department learn a lot from Wales, including on plastics that we send abroad, and incorporate that in the upcoming resources and waste strategy for England?

The Secretary of State’S Handling of Universal Credit (11 Jul 2018)

Jessica Morden: I too want universal credit to work, but yet again the Secretary of State has come to the House, in the face of evidence and feedback from the NAO, CABs, food banks, housing associations, local government and others, and just appears to want to ride it out and brazen it out. That is deeply worrying and disappointing for my constituency because Newport has only had about 10% roll-out so far,...

The Secretary of State’S Handling of Universal Credit (11 Jul 2018)

Jessica Morden: I absolutely agree. I believe that they are doing the best they can with the tools that they have been given, but they need far more resources. I hope that the Minister who winds up will adopt a more conciliatory tone. It is not enough to say that the delays can be solved by advance payments, or that it is too early to assess the impacts. The evidence is plain to see in our constituencies....

Afghanistan (11 Jul 2018)

Jessica Morden: What is the Secretary of State doing with the Home Office to address the issues faced by the Afghan interpreters who have settled here under the Government’s scheme, but are now facing real difficulties in being reunited with their families here because of the normal spousal visa rules? The work of those interpreters was crucial and dangerous, and they deserve better.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Transport Infrastructure (5 Jul 2018)

Jessica Morden: This summer, my constituents who commute by rail have had to put with up with delays, cancellations and ineffective bus services as a result of work on the great western main line, and we now learn that equipment is rusting in the Severn tunnel. Although the infrastructure investment is welcome, will the Minister ensure that this is not an excuse for train operating companies to provide a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Universal Credit: Roll-out (2 Jul 2018)

Jessica Morden: Constituents who do not have a passport or driving licence, because they do not drive or have no need of one or cannot afford one, cannot use the online verification system and need to be seen in person at a job centre, but there are huge waits for appointments, including for those who urgently need advance payments. What is the Minister doing to tackle that?

Leaving the Eu: Airbus Risk Assessment (25 Jun 2018)

Jessica Morden: Many of my constituents work in Newport and in Filton. I reiterate to the Minister that the Government’s failure to address the issues that Airbus raised about Brexit mean uncertain times for the workforce, and that includes the 500-plus apprenticeships that have been offered over the last five years in Wales. This is about jobs for our young people.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Community Transport (13 Jun 2018)

Jessica Morden: What discussions he has had with the Secretary of State for Transport on the potential effect on community transport providers in Wales of changes to the way in which section 19 and 22 permits are issued.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Community Transport (13 Jun 2018)

Jessica Morden: As the Minister said, community transport operators in Wales have many valuable functions, including helping isolated people get to the shops, doctors, friends and family. They will be hit very hard hit by Government changes in terms of extra licensing and certification. The Community Transport Association says that this will affect 95% of operators, so what will the Minister do to help the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Deposit Return Scheme (7 Jun 2018)

Jessica Morden: Whether he has had discussions with the Chancellor of the Exchequer on introducing a deposit return scheme.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Deposit Return Scheme (7 Jun 2018)

Jessica Morden: Tomorrow, a team from AB InBev brewery and Keep Wales Tidy will again be out cleaning up the shores of the Severn estuary, which highlights the very urgent action that is needed to protect our environment from the devastating impact of plastic pollution. Will the Secretary of State confirm that he has Treasury backing for a deposit return scheme, and when will we see some action?

Leaving the EU: Higher Education in Wales (23 May 2018)

Jessica Morden: May I throw in another project? I am sure that the Minister welcomes the collaborative work going on between the University of South Wales and Thales, which is obviously a big European company. They are jointly developing the cyber-graduates and the cyber-capability in Gwent, alongside the Welsh Government. Does he agree that it is absolutely vital that we keep up these relationships and this...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (22 May 2018)

Jessica Morden: What will ministers do to support the “Great Western Cities” initiative, which promotes collaboration between Bristol, Newport and Cardiff and has enormous potential for the wider region?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (21 May 2018)

Jessica Morden: Constituents who cannot afford a driving licence or a passport cannot do an initial online verification of their universal credit claim, meaning that they have to wait up to two weeks in order to be seen for a personal appointment. That is driving people to see loan sharks in some cases, so will the Minister look at it?

Fortified Flour (16 May 2018)

Jessica Morden: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Pontypridd (Owen Smith) on securing this important debate and, as always, making an excellent case in favour of the fortification of flour and the science behind it. I also thank him and the right hon. Member for Belfast North (Nigel Dodds) for organising the recent event in Parliament with the charity Shine, among others. Shine has worked for...

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

Jessica Morden: My hon. Friend is making some important points. Does he agree that we should urge Ministers to take more of a lead in restricting junk food advertising and to provide extra money and the consequentials to the Welsh health service for such things as earlier intervention by GPs and practice nurses?

Public Legal Education — [Mr Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (15 May 2018)

Jessica Morden: The hon. Gentleman makes a good point about the experiences of his constituents, but does he agree that while it is a very good thing for people to know their rights, being able to enforce them in a real court is what really matters, and that the Government’s cuts to legal aid and court closures have cut people’s ability to do that?
