Free School Meals/Pupil Premium: Eligibility (6 Feb 2018)

Alex Cunningham: I, too, am proud of the work done by my north-east colleague, my hon. Friend the Member for Washington and Sunderland West (Mrs Hodgson). This policy means that the Government expect families that are already struggling to find around £10 per week for each of their children to enjoy a school meal, or resort to cheap sandwiches and other rubbish to ensure that they are fed. I ask the...

Free School Meals/Pupil Premium: Eligibility (6 Feb 2018)

Alex Cunningham: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Free School Meals/Pupil Premium: Eligibility (6 Feb 2018)

Alex Cunningham: I am sure that my hon. Friend will agree with me that instead of cutting back breakfast clubs we should be developing them. However, there is also the issue of “holiday hunger” throughout the summer period, the Christmas period, Easter and everything else, and we really should look to develop policies in that regard rather than cutting back.

NHS Winter Crisis (5 Feb 2018)

Alex Cunningham: North Tees Hospital staff are doing a great job of dealing with the winter crisis, but even they have been struggling this year. The trust says it is going to record its first ever deficit, because it cannot make the £18 million cuts demanded by the Government. Is the answer really to deprive it of more money or to have it set up a wholly owned subsidiary company to cut the terms and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (31 Jan 2018)

Alex Cunningham: On 25 January 1985, the Conservative Government promised that no nuclear waste would be dumped in the Billingham anhydrite mine. Will the right hon. Gentleman confirmed that that promise still stands?

Leaving the Eu: Economic Analysis (30 Jan 2018)

Alex Cunningham: The information in today’s Government report directly reflects what industries and businesses on Teesside have been saying for months—that they will suffer if the Government totally abandon the single market and the customs union. Ministers may choose to ignore the reports, but will they please listen to what the industrialists and the businesspeople are saying? The Government...

Written Answers — Department for International Development: Developing Countries: Public Health (30 Jan 2018)

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Trade Deals: Standards (25 Jan 2018)

Alex Cunningham: On that basis, then, does the Minister know whether his boss, a former Education Secretary, would be content to serve our schoolchildren American chlorinated chicken?

Refugees and Human Rights (24 Jan 2018)

Alex Cunningham: I support the motion but I also believe that we have a special role to protect those who seek refuge and support in the UK. We see many countries in the headlines and in the briefing materials, including northern Africa, Afghanistan, Syria and Myanmar, but others are on the move, too. Some people from those countries are trafficked while others, such as the Palestinians, feel like refugees...

Refugees and Human Rights (24 Jan 2018)

Alex Cunningham: I appreciate that intervention. I think that many of us on both sides of the House could write books about the problems faced by refugees. How can any Government who supposedly support human rights and the protection of vulnerable people be sending a woman like the one I have described back to her country, in fear, and at a time when she is battling mental health problems? Justice First in...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Looked-after Children (22 Jan 2018)

Alex Cunningham: What recent discussions he has had with the Secretary of State for Education on outcomes for looked-after children.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Looked-after Children (22 Jan 2018)

Alex Cunningham: I welcome the Minister, my near neighbour, to his new post. When will the Government actually provide adequate funds properly to support these special young people?

Childcare Vouchers — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (15 Jan 2018)

Alex Cunningham: I have a simple question: is the Minister content that we should have inequality in the system and that some parents should receive a greater benefit than others?

Childcare Vouchers — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (15 Jan 2018)

Alex Cunningham: I sense that the Minister is getting towards the end of his speech. People in the gig economy see tremendous fluctuations in their income and might not meet the £120-a-week threshold at any one time. What will the Government do about such people? Will they just drop out?
