Jane Ellison: I am grateful for the opportunity to make my maiden speech and to follow my hon. Friends the Members for Milton Keynes South (Iain Stewart), for Romsey and Southampton North (Caroline Nokes) and for Colne Valley (Jason McCartney), and the hon. Member for Liverpool, Walton (Steve Rotheram), who set such a high standard. To pick up this afternoon's running thread of football commentary, I am...

Business of the House: Free Schools Policy (21 Jun 2010)

Jane Ellison: Has the Secretary of State had a chance to meet people from the neighbourhood school campaign in my constituency, who have already made considerable progress towards the establishment of a new secondary school in Wandsworth-a campaign that I note that the shadow Secretary of State supported prior to the election?

CCTV: Limits on Non-EU Economic Migration (28 Jun 2010)

Jane Ellison: I welcome the Home Secretary's statement. In my short time as a Member of Parliament I have met people who are in this country as economic migrants and working for large, established employers who should be establishing training schemes, taking people on and equipping them with the relevant skills. Does she agree that those employers should put their efforts into setting up apprenticeships...

Global Poverty ( 1 Jul 2010)

Jane Ellison: Many of the speeches this afternoon rightly referred to the human rights of women and girls around the world. Will my right hon. Friend make a brief comment on the extent to which the human rights of gay people are under threat in some parts of the developing world with which we have significant ongoing relationships? I am wary of any sense of using aid as a political weapon, but I hope that...

Nato: Education Funding ( 5 Jul 2010)

Jane Ellison: It is obviously important that we are discussing the issue of school buildings, but I fear that members of the public listening to the questions and answers over the past hour might have been left with the impression that first-class teaching and inspirational school leadership play no part in improving children's life chances. Would the Secretary of State like to confirm that on the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Treatment of Detainees ( 6 Jul 2010)

Jane Ellison: I very much welcome my right hon. Friend's statement. It will be even more warmly welcomed by Mrs Zineera Aamer and her children -the family of Shaker Aamer, the last UK resident in Guantanamo Bay. They are also my constituents.

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Voluntary and Community Sectors (14 Jul 2010)

Jane Ellison: All over the country this Sunday there will be "big lunch" street parties, and Battersea is no exception. In my area it has been greatly facilitated by the council issuing a flat-rate charge for street closures with an easily completed form, and generally being accommodating and encouraging. Does my right hon. Friend agree that we should encourage all councils to do that?

Rail Services (South London Line) (14 Jul 2010)

Jane Ellison: I apologise in case I have to leave before the end of the Minister's remarks, because I have to ask a question in the main Chamber at 11.30 am. Slightly fewer of my constituents are affected than those of the hon. Member for Vauxhall (Kate Hoey), but I want to pick up on the point about Clapham Junction, because one problem is that it is not an effective interchange, despite being pretty...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Non-departmental Public Bodies (15 Jul 2010)

Jane Ellison: I thank my hon. Friend for that reply. When I am talking to the leader of my local council-Wandsworth, a top-rated council-one of the great frustrations expressed is about the number of plans and strategies that senior officers are compelled to write in areas such as youth offending and adult social services, when their time would be better spent delivering those local services. May I have...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (19 Jul 2010)

Jane Ellison: I very much welcome the comments made by my right hon. Friend a moment ago about housing benefit.

May I ask him to take a particular interest in the problem in the capital, where the poverty trap is one of the greatest in the UK?

Member for Stretford and Urmston (Kate Green) called the geographically and procedurally lost in this House. The other reason why, as a new Member, I stood to serve on the Committee was...

Dangerous Dogs (20 Jul 2010)

Jane Ellison: I want to support that view. I represent Battersea, and Battersea dogs home is a great source of expertise. It says that those dogs come through its doors as the victims of irresponsible back-street breeding and irresponsible ownership. It is a tragic sight to go to the dogs home and see many dozens of abandoned dogs that have little chance of being re-homed because someone bred and treated...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Rail Franchising (22 Jul 2010)

Jane Ellison: I think this is the appropriate moment to ask my question, Mr Speaker. In her discussions with rail franchises and franchisees, will my right hon. Friend ask them whether they will consider bringing longer trains through stations whose platforms have not been lengthened when they have available rolling stock? That is common on the continent, but we do not do it here, and it would greatly help...
