Organised Crime: Young People’s Safety — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (5 Sep 2018)

Lyn Brown: Thank you, Mr Evans, and thank you to the Minister for sitting down and giving me the opportunity to wind up quickly. It has been a superb debate. Every Member who has spoken today has brought something special and unique. They are passionate about their communities and about keeping them safe. All the contributions have been excellent. I thank the Minister for his response. I do not often...

Organised Crime: Young People’s Safety — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (5 Sep 2018)

Lyn Brown: I beg to move, That this House has considered the Government’s response to organised crime and young people’s safety. It is an absolute pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Evans. Nine young lives have been lost to violent crime in West Ham since 2017. Nine teenagers and young adults, with their whole life ahead of them, needlessly and tragically stolen from us. Nine lost...

Organised Crime: Young People’s Safety — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (5 Sep 2018)

Lyn Brown: I thank the hon. Lady for that. I certainly think the only way forward is a multi-agency approach. I hesitate to say that the co-ordinating role should be placed at local government’s door, given the swingeing cuts that it is absorbing, but there is already a legal wellbeing framework that this work could fall under. The Home Office has a responsibility to demand such strategies from...

Organised Crime: Young People’s Safety — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (5 Sep 2018)

Lyn Brown: I will get to the end of the story. Nathan has now accrued more than £4,000 of rent arrears through absolutely no fault of his own. The system did not work. It happened because he was stuck for months between landlords, agencies and a local authority—not Newham—that would not talk to other agencies, and because he was given appalling and incorrect advice. The housing...

Organised Crime: Young People’s Safety — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (5 Sep 2018)

Lyn Brown: I absolutely agree. The system lets down young witnesses like Ashley and their families. It fails them at almost every turn, it puts them at risk and it erodes trust. That trust is necessary for us to get the information that we need, let alone anything else. Hearing these stories makes people in my community less likely to engage with the authorities when they have information that could...

TOEIC Visa Cancellations — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (4 Sep 2018)

Lyn Brown: I have time for the Minister—I often find her speeches considered and reasonable—but I am struggling with what she is saying here. We know that there is a problem, and she is defending, it seems to me, taking people’s liberty away and threatening them with deportation, despite the fact that we know there is a problem with the process. I really want to hear an apology from...

TOEIC Visa Cancellations — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (4 Sep 2018)

Lyn Brown: It is good to be back here and speaking under your chairmanship, Mr Bailey. I hope hon. Members and all members of staff have had a fabulous holiday and have come back rested. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Ilford North (Wes Streeting) on securing this debate. I echo his words about my right hon. Friend the Member for East Ham (Stephen Timms) and his valuable work on this...

TOEIC Visa Cancellations — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (4 Sep 2018)

Lyn Brown: You can see the logic.

Backbench Business: Perinatal Mental Illness — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (19 Jul 2018)

Lyn Brown: I understand that one fifth of parents stated that they were not asked about their mental or physical health during the six-week post-natal check-up. Does my hon. Friend think that might be because GPs are massively overburdened and simply do not have the time to deal with this essential issue?

Backbench Business: Perinatal Mental Illness — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (19 Jul 2018)

Lyn Brown: I am sorry to intervene again. I intended to make a speech, but I am needed elsewhere, so I will ask a question. I have a lot of time for the Minister and I am wondering how we can help her to make the necessary case to the Treasury. Is it not true that if we look after the parent and the child as early and as well as possible, that will save massive amounts of money in the long term? This is...

Royal Assent: Independent Complaints and Grievance Policy (19 Jul 2018)

Lyn Brown: As the right hon. Lady would expect, I have talked to my staff about this policy and asked them whether they think it is a step forward. They do, but they also want the House to recognise the Unite branch and give it a role in the reviewing and implementation of the procedure, to embed union protection in the workplace. Has that idea been discussed or progressed?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Topical Questions (9 Jul 2018)

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Topical Questions (9 Jul 2018)

Lyn Brown: That is so true, Mr Speaker. Thank you. Cyber-security is more important than ever and should be paramount for those who are in charge of our armed forces. Will the Secretary of State tell me whether it is true that when he threatened to bring down the Prime Minister, Siri replied: “I’m sorry. I don’t understand.”?

Prisons (Interference with Wireless Telegraphy) Bill (6 Jul 2018)

Lyn Brown: I congratulate the hon. Lady on how far the Bill has progressed so far. Last night I was talking to some mums whose young people had been caught up in crime, and they were horrified to tell me that people are using mobile phones to continue criminal activities in jail, and to continue to hold in their thrall the young people they have groomed. Does the hon. Lady share my concern that that is...

Equal Franchise Act 1928 — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (5 Jul 2018)

Lyn Brown: While my hon. Friend is advocating on behalf of the statutes that we could build, maybe we could have a statue that had some of the working-class women around it, such as Minnie Bladcock and Annie Kenne; maybe they could stand shoulder to shoulder with the other women she wants on the plinth. Maybe we could have a really big platform with lots of women from the suffrage movement standing tall.

Equal Franchise Act 1928 — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (5 Jul 2018)

Lyn Brown: It is an absolute pleasure to see you in the Chair this afternoon, Ms Buck, and to speak under your chairmanship. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Canterbury (Rosie Duffield) for securing the debate and giving us all the opportunity to talk about this issue today. She treated us to a really excellent contribution, which I look forward to reading in Hansard, because she touched on so...

Equal Franchise Act 1928 — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (5 Jul 2018)

Lyn Brown: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for mentioning Sophia Duleep Singh. She was indeed a doughty fighter, and all too often women like her have been written out of our history. He does us a great service by bringing her name into the debate. Above all, for me, suffrage fighters were working-class. The first branch of the Women’s Social and Political Union was opened in my constituency in...

Equal Franchise Act 1928 — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (5 Jul 2018)

Lyn Brown: I certainly do, and perhaps we could do something about the Payne family, who took Sylvia in when she was weak. The Payne family came from Old Ford, which is kind of Hackney, kind of Tower Hamlets, and kind of Stratford—so that makes it mine—and they were shoemakers. Police officers tried to surround the house that Sylvia was in, but they were confronted by really strong women who...

Offensive Weapons Bill (27 Jun 2018)

Lyn Brown: I urge the hon. Lady to be firm on the issue of guns and gun control. She is loquacious on being is listening mode, so will she answer my question on scheduling? She has only a couple of minutes left, and I hope she will get to it.

Offensive Weapons Bill (27 Jun 2018)

Lyn Brown: Today I am going to address the corrosive substances provisions of the Bill and welcome the progress that has been made. Had I realised the direction that the debate was going to take, I would have sought to speak for longer and to discuss the wider concerns that have been raised today. I have been seeking a Westminster Hall debate on those wider issues, and if any other Members wanted to...
