Housing, Communities and Local Government: Local Government Finance (22 Jan 2018)

Lilian Greenwood: What assessment he has made of the effect of the local government finance settlement on the ability of local authorities to meet their statutory responsibilities.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Local Government Finance (22 Jan 2018)

Lilian Greenwood: This Government have deliberately targeted their cuts at the most deprived communities. Nottingham City Council has lost a staggering 80% of its funding since 2010. Now the Government’s only answer to the social care crisis is to add another 3% to council tax bills. In Nottingham, that will raise just £3 million, which is way short of the extra £12 million the city needs to...

Supported Housing — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (18 Jan 2018)

Lilian Greenwood: Sir Graham, it is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship this afternoon. I join colleagues in welcoming the joint report between the Communities and Local Government Committee and the Work and Pensions Committee on supported housing, and congratulate them on securing this debate. A safe, secure and supportive home can be the key to improving or repairing lives and to unlocking...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Bus Journeys: England (18 Jan 2018)

Lilian Greenwood: Mr Speaker, I hope you will not mind if I take this opportunity to record my gratitude to both the emergency services and railway staff for their outstanding response to the fire at Nottingham railway station last week, ensuring that everyone was safely evacuated. Damage was minimised and services were restored very quickly. Around a quarter of all concessionary passholders’ bus...

Written Answers — Home Office: Asylum: Children (15 Jan 2018)

Lilian Greenwood: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, whether she plans to replicate Dublin III obligations within UK legislation once the UK has left the EU; and if she will make a statement.

NHS Winter Crisis (8 Jan 2018)

Lilian Greenwood: Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust and the East Midlands Ambulance Service have both declared the highest level of alert in recent days. Despite the heroic efforts of NHS staff, emergency patients’ care, safety and dignity have been put at risk, and of course other patients have had their operations cancelled. Does this not confirm that the Government’s preparations and...

Policing (19 Dec 2017)

Lilian Greenwood: My constituents have seen what this Government have meant for local policing: fewer officers on their streets and crime on the rise. Will the Minister confirm that even though he must know that council tax is highly regressive, he is asking those same constituents, many of whom are low paid or on fixed incomes, to pay more while he will not provide a penny more and central Government grant is...

Local Government Finance Settlement (19 Dec 2017)

Lilian Greenwood: Whether it is the community protection officers who keep our neighbourhoods safe, the social workers who protect vulnerable children or the workers in libraries, museums, schools and day centres, local government staff are working harder than ever and deserve a pay rise. What resources will the Secretary of State provide to ensure that councils can afford to give them one without making even...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Apprentices: Travel (18 Dec 2017)

Lilian Greenwood: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what progress has been made on subsidising transport for apprentices; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Personal Independence Payments (18 Dec 2017)

Lilian Greenwood: Sixty five per cent of PIP tribunals find in favour of the claimant, meaning that hundreds of disabled people are being denied the support to which they are entitled. This puts an intolerable strain on whole families, including my constituents Chris and Cathryn Stoney who, having coped with Cathryn’s bowel cancer surgeries, brain haemorrhage and cardiac arrest, now face a further ordeal...

Pension Equality for Women: Hormone Pregnancy Tests (14 Dec 2017)

Lilian Greenwood: My constituent, Peggy Gedling, finds herself in precisely that situation. In 1969, when she gave birth to her son Justin, she attended a medical practice in Crawley. Many of the GP notes were handwritten, and they appear to have been lost. Her previous practice in Gloucestershire tried to obtain her medical records and found that she had ceased to exist for 12 years. It is very worrying, is...

Pension Equality for Women (14 Dec 2017)

Lilian Greenwood: Does my hon. Friend agree that it is absolutely no surprise that 1950s women such as my constituents Jane Yates and Glenys Daly feel robbed? They have worked hard for 45 years and they say that their bodies are giving up, yet they cannot get the pensions that they have paid for.

Pension Equality for Women (14 Dec 2017)

Lilian Greenwood: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Palestinian Communities: Israeli Demolitions — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (6 Dec 2017)

Lilian Greenwood: My hon. Friend is making a powerful case for the importance of maintaining international humanitarian law. Does he share my concern that if these demolitions go ahead in the coming weeks, as we fear, it will be the middle of winter, potentially putting families and young children at great risk, as they could be without not just their schools and playgrounds but their homes, at a time when...

Rail Update (29 Nov 2017)

Lilian Greenwood: Alliancing and joint teams can improve dialogue between Network Rail and operators, but that is not a fundamentally different proposition from what has happened before and what is happening now on certain segments of the railway. The underlying factors that contribute to the misalignment between operators and Network Rail—namely, separate performance regimes and financial...

Maternity Safety Strategy (28 Nov 2017)

Lilian Greenwood: My constituents, Jack and Sarah Hawkins, have spoken bravely about the tragic death of their daughter Harriet due to failures of care. Members may have heard them this morning. I spoke to Jack earlier and am pleased to tell the Secretary of State that they feel listened to and heard. They and I very much welcome his statement and his support for extending the power of coroners. However, Jack...

Backbench Business: Voter Registration: Nottingham North (28 Nov 2017)

Lilian Greenwood: The Minister may be wedded to individual registration, but will he not accept that there are some groups he needs to work much harder with? That might be those who have poor language skills or learning disabilities. They might want to register but find the process difficult. Will he commit to put in extra measures to ensure that those people who want to vote but find the existing process...

Backbench Business: Voter Registration: Nottingham North (28 Nov 2017)

Lilian Greenwood: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this debate and on making such a powerful case. Does he agree that one of the issues we face in Nottingham is the under-registration of students? It is clear that, since the university no longer automatically registers students who live in halls, let alone all those who live in houses in multiple occupation in their second and third years, large...
