Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (5 Jun 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: I was contacted recently by my constituent, Anna Arnone, who was employed as a prosecuting barrister by the CPS. Her work allegedly was removed without notice or explanation, and she was refused any statutory interest on the amount owed. Will the Minister commit to look into my constituent’s case if I forward her the details?

Personal Independence Payments (4 Jun 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: Mr Justice Mostyn in his ruling on Motability, which the Government also accepted, said of the 2017 regulations: “The wish to save nearly £1 billion at the expense of those with mental health impairments is not a reasonable foundation for passing this measure.” The Secretary of State has made a welcome second U-turn, so do the Government recognise that not cutting corporation...

National Funding Formula: Social Mobility — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (22 May 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: On that basis, how does the Minister explain the fact that in the past 18 months or so the number of schools releasing teaching assistants has grown faster than in the previous few years? Does he accept that that must be because of budgetary pressures and that, if it happens across the piece, it could lead to severe challenges down the line?

National Funding Formula: Social Mobility — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (22 May 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: The Minister has been talking a lot about the national fair funding formula and the additional money in the constituencies of the hon. Member for South Shields (Mrs Lewell-Buck) and of my hon. Friends the Members for Bath (Wera Hobhouse) and for Oxford West and Abingdon (Layla Moran). When exactly will that national funding formula come in? Does the Minister acknowledge that when it comes...

National Funding Formula: Social Mobility — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (22 May 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: It is a privilege to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Walker. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Bath (Wera Hobhouse) for securing the debate. It was very short-notice but, as she flagged up, this is an important issue. This is one of those fascinating debates where it is a bit like the old cliché of apples and pears, in the sense that one side says one thing, and the other side...

National Funding Formula: Social Mobility — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (22 May 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: I entirely agree. A lot of it was apparently not new money, and anyway, even with the best will in the world, it just held everything in place for 12 months—it did not solve the problem. As my hon. Friend has emphasised, as we began to pick into and drill down into those figures, what did we discover? We discovered that quite a lot of it was not the new money it was initially alleged to...

National Funding Formula: Social Mobility — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (22 May 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: My hon. Friend is so right. We know that is true. Hon. Members will have spoken to their local headteachers and visited their schools. The number of teaching assistants has been slashed, and support for disabled children is under tremendous pressure. The schools are creaking—there are no two ways about it. I know that the budget is huge and there are thousands and thousands of schools...

Sale of Puppies — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (21 May 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on his introduction to this important debate. Will he confirm that there has been some misunderstanding out there that this petition would actually prevent charities from helping to move on dogs? That is not the case at all; it would strengthen their hand.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Universal Credit: Private Rented Sector Evictions (21 May 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: What assessment she has made of the effect of the roll-out of universal credit on the number of evictions in the private rented sector.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Universal Credit: Private Rented Sector Evictions (21 May 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: I am very disappointed with that answer because, having had meetings with a number of residents associations and landlords, I already know that the private sector is fairly loth to let houses to people on housing benefit. The same applies to universal credit, the reason being that the payment goes direct to the tenant. I urge the Government to at least have a default, if both sides agree, for...

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

Stephen Lloyd: On a point of order, Mr Speaker.

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

Stephen Lloyd: Earlier, in response to my question, the Under-Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, the hon. Member for North West Hampshire (Kit Malthouse) indicated that I said one thing during the coalition and another thing post-coalition on the issue of rent payments to private landlords. The Under-Secretary was not a Member of Parliament at that time, so he will not know that I am on the record,...

Learning Disabilities Mortality Review (8 May 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: This is a shocking report, and its conclusions demean us all. A lot of people on both sides of the Chamber have asked the Minister and her Department to come up with some actions. Rather than just talking about it, will she commit today to coming back to the House with a specific action plan to prevent and change what has been an absolutely shocking situation for many decades?

Learning Disabilities Mortality Review (8 May 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: Will you bring it back to the House?

Health and Social Care: NHS Bursaries (8 May 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: With every reputable independent body showing very clearly that we have a staffing crisis in the NHS nursing profession, can the Minister explain how cutting bursaries actually improves the situation?

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Personal Independence Payment (3 May 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what the timetable is for the introduction of automatic (a) audio and (b) video recording of personal independence payment assessments.

Breast Cancer Screening (2 May 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: Let us be clear that this is an utterly desperate situation. We know that some women may well have died who might not have done had they been identified. However, I would like to pay tribute to the Secretary of State’s statement. It was transparent, it ’fessed up and it made clear what the Department of Health and Social Care would be doing to remedy the situation. I appreciate...

Bowel Cancer Screening (1 May 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: I thank the hon. Gentleman for securing this important debate. I offer him my condolences on his dear mother’s death. He will be aware of the enormous public petition—it has received 446,000 signatures—that was started all those years ago by Lauren Backler, who also lost her mother. I have supported that campaign for a long time. Does he agree that the evidence is clear that...
