Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Anna Soubry: Thanks to a Conservative Government, we now have almost full employment in this country. For a number of people who claim unemployment benefits, their mental health is a barrier to getting work. What assurances can my right hon. Friend give us that the universal credit system will either help people with low-level mental health conditions to get back into work, or give them the support they...

Regulation of Property Agents (18 Oct 2017)

Anna Soubry: Rip-off merchants, cowboys and those who seek to exploit often some of the most vulnerable people in our society have no place in a modern Britain, but does my hon. Friend agree that we must not throw the baby out with the bathwater? Lots of agents are thoroughly respectable and good—invariably estate agents who are small, independent, family-run businesses occupying important plots on...

The Rohingya and the Myanmar Government (17 Oct 2017)

Anna Soubry: In effect, there is no debate in this place this afternoon, because we are all of the same voice and of the same opinion, as we know from the words that right hon. and hon. Members have read out by way of testimony from the Rohingya people who have suffered in this dreadful genocide, and from the right hon. and hon. Members who have seen with their own eyes and listened with their own ears...

The Rohingya and the Myanmar Government (17 Oct 2017)

Anna Soubry: I agree with everything that the hon. Lady said. I am absolutely sure that all those things will be done. As the Minister explained, the Government have not stood back on any of that. In fact, they want to step up and assist. Somehow, somewhere along the line, it has to be more than words and the sticking-plaster that refugee camps can almost become. We do wonderful things through our great...

EU Exit Negotiations (17 Oct 2017)

Anna Soubry: May I commend my right hon. Friend for his statement and the advance in the negotiations made by both him and the Prime Minister? Does he agree that it is not just within this House where there is no majority for no deal, but that by their vote on 8 June the British people did not give this Government any mandate for no deal, because not only would it be bad for everybody in England, Wales...

Written Answers — Home Office: Visas: Skilled Workers (17 Oct 2017)

Anna Soubry: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what proportion of priority applications for Tier 2 visas were not processed before the 60 day limit in each of the last three years.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (17 Oct 2017)

Anna Soubry: May I thank the Foreign Secretary, notwithstanding our differences, for his personal intervention in the case of a constituent of mine who, along with her 22-month-old son, was rescued from Dominica by our Government—I am very proud of that —and brought back to this country safely? Unfortunately, she is not entitled to any benefits for three months, and she is relying on the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (16 Oct 2017)

Anna Soubry: Nottinghamshire police has decided, without any consultation and with hardly any notice—literally, a note under the clerk’s door—to end community policing in Kimberley and Nuthall in my constituency. I do not expect the Minister to comment on the merits of the decision, but does he agree that in community policing, it is really important to work with and communicate with...

European Union (Approvals) Bill: Baby Loss Awareness Week (10 Oct 2017)

Anna Soubry: I commend the Minister for his excellent speech. I am sure that he will join me in congratulating Forever Stars, which is exactly the sort of charity that he has described. It was started by two of my constituents, who sadly lost their baby, Emily, who was stillborn. They have raised about £200,000 for two suites. A third is on the way, and they are now fundraising for counselling...

Race Disparity Audit: Bombardier (10 Oct 2017)

Anna Soubry: I had the great pleasure of going to the wings factory in Belfast, and I pay handsome tribute not just to the 4,000 workers there but to Bombardier in general and to the C series—it is a beautiful and exceptionally fine aeroplane, and we wish it great success. I also thank the Secretary of State and all his colleagues in the Government for the fine work they are doing, but does he share...

Bae Systems Military Air & Information Sites: Job Losses (10 Oct 2017)

Anna Soubry: Does my hon. Friend agree that it is somewhat concerning, if not a little peculiar, that those who are standing up, notably representatives of the SNP, to condemn these job losses sing the praises of BAE, quite rightly, yet support a policy of being opposed to all arms sales, notably to Saudi Arabia?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Five Year Forward View for Mental Health (10 Oct 2017)

Anna Soubry: What plans he has for the implementation of the NHS’s Five Year Forward View for Mental Health.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Five Year Forward View for Mental Health (10 Oct 2017)

Anna Soubry: I am sure that you, Mr Speaker, and the rest of the House will send their condolences to the family and friends of Rebecca Nevin, a constituent of mine who died aged 32 after many years of poor mental health and an addiction to alcohol. Her father, Stephen, like many parents of adult sufferers of poor mental health, felt largely excluded by health professionals. Does my hon. Friend agree that...

Uk Plans for Leaving the EU (9 Oct 2017)

Anna Soubry: I congratulate the Prime Minister on her excellent Florence speech. It was widely welcomed, not just by British business but by people across the country, and it marked a real attempt by her to form a consensus on Brexit between the 48% and the 52% that everyone is crying out for. Forgive my throat, Mr Speaker—women with bad throats will not be silenced. [Hon. Members: “Hear,...

Monarch Airlines (9 Oct 2017)

Anna Soubry: As a former Business Minister before the EU referendum, and apparently as one of the chief “remoaners”, may I make it absolutely clear that the unfortunate demise of Monarch has absolutely nothing to do with Brexit? Those who seek to make it an issue based on Brexit do not do anybody any favours. I commend the Secretary of State not only for his statement but for his hard work and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (9 Oct 2017)

Anna Soubry: I am grateful to the Government for the assistance given to my constituent, who had to leave Dominica because of the terrible damage caused by the hurricane. But on her return back to this country with her 22-month-old son, she has discovered that she is not entitled to any benefits whatever for three months. Will the Minister meet me to discuss how we can ensure that we have a right and...

Higher Education (England) Regulations (13 Sep 2017)

Anna Soubry: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Higher Education (England) Regulations (13 Sep 2017)

Anna Soubry: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Higher Education (England) Regulations (13 Sep 2017)

Anna Soubry: The hon. Lady will no doubt recall that it was her party that promised not to introduce tuition fees and then, when in government, went on to do that. Does she accept that application rates among disadvantaged English 18-year-olds and black and minority ethnic 18-year-olds are at an all-time record high?

NHS Pay (13 Sep 2017)

Anna Soubry: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?
