Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (7 Mar 2018)

Lilian Greenwood: Nottingham needs to find an extra £12 million this year to care for elderly and disabled people, but the Government’s answer—adding 3% to council tax bills—only raises just over £3 million, leaving a huge gap to be filled. No wonder Lord Porter, Conservative chair of the Local Government Association, warns that some councils will “be pushed perilously close...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Road Safety (1 Mar 2018)

Lilian Greenwood: The previous Transport Committee’s June 2016 inquiry into all-lane running concluded that 8% non-compliance with red X signals was unacceptable. In their response, the Government agreed, promising to tackle it through a combination of education and enforcement. In January this year, the chief executive of Highways England wrote to me with an update, stating that “we have reduced...

Homelessness: Department for Transport (27 Feb 2018)

Lilian Greenwood: I do not wish to get into the argument about why franchising is not currently working, but does the hon. Gentleman share my concerns that the supplementary estimates show that receipts are expected to be £248.6 million lower than expected? Although the Treasury is providing an extra £60 million to partially offset that, £188 million of income still needs to be found from...

Homelessness: Department for Transport (27 Feb 2018)

Lilian Greenwood: My hon. Friend is making a powerful case about the need for regional rebalancing. Does she agree that the Department for Transport needs to make changes to the transport business case methodology so that it takes account of the wider economic benefits that can flow from investment in transport, rather than just journey time savings for large numbers of existing transport users?

Homelessness: Department for Transport (27 Feb 2018)

Lilian Greenwood: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Kingston upon Hull North (Diana Johnson) on securing this debate on the spending of the Department for Transport, and I welcome this new format for estimates day debates. I will make a few points, and pose a couple of questions about the supplementary estimate, which I hope the Minister will address in his speech. When we look at the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (27 Feb 2018)

Lilian Greenwood: “The health and social care system has been pushed to its limits in recent weeks”—those are not my words, but those of my local hospital trust. Last month, it was forced to cancel about 325 operations and 640 outpatient appointments. That not only means that my constituents who are unwell or in pain are being made to wait longer for treatment but makes the trust’s...

Women’S Suffrage Centenary (6 Feb 2018)

Lilian Greenwood: I welcome the funding that Nottingham has received for its centenary city celebrations. People may learn not only about Edith Annie Lees and Helen Watts, but about the Nottingham suffragettes who burned down the men-only Nottingham boat club in 1913—there is obviously a bit of an east midlands theme. They may be astonished that the club did not accept women into membership for another...

Public Service Delivery: Northamptonshire (6 Feb 2018)

Lilian Greenwood: Northamptonshire County Council has completely failed its citizens and its staff. Northamptonshire MPs have consistently voted for huge cuts to local government funding, and Ministers have refused to listen when Labour Members described the impacts of rising demand for services and even deeper cuts to our councils. When will he listen and respond to the budget crisis facing all councils,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (5 Feb 2018)

Lilian Greenwood: Thousands of women born in the 1950s are being left in serious hardship as a result of accelerated changes to the state pension age, and as my hon. Friend the Member for Colne Valley (Thelma Walker) said, they are crying out for justice. In the week when we celebrate the centenary of the first women gaining the right to vote, how dare this Government ignore their voices?

Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration etc.) Bill (2 Feb 2018)

Lilian Greenwood: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker. I will attempt to keep my contribution concise. I congratulate the hon. Member for East Worthing and Shoreham (Tim Loughton) on bringing forward his comprehensive Bill. I know that he has wanted to act on these matters for a really long time, so this is a real tribute to persistence and determination. I support the Bill in total, but I am going to confine my...

Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration etc.) Bill (2 Feb 2018)

Lilian Greenwood: My hon. Friend is entirely right. The role of coroners is incredibly important, and there are a number of reasons why coroners are the right people to investigate such deaths. First, why should a baby’s death be treated differently from any other death? The coroner is an independent judicial office holder, and therefore the inquest will be truly independent and transparent. The coroner...

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (1 Feb 2018)

Lilian Greenwood: The UK’s civil aerospace companies are leading the world in the development of future technologies, but everyone from the chief executive of Airbus to the Unite reps at Rolls-Royce says that a hard Brexit threatens that success. Why is the continued membership of the customs union and the single market not on the table to protect the UK’s engineering manufacturing sector?

Leaving the Eu: Economic Analysis (30 Jan 2018)

Lilian Greenwood: What duty does the Minister owe to the British people, including my constituents, if not to tell the truth about the choices in the negotiations before us and what they will mean for jobs and businesses in Nottingham?

Pubs Code 2016 — [Mr David Crausby in the Chair] (24 Jan 2018)

Lilian Greenwood: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this debate. I want to ask a question on behalf of the Nottingham branch of the Campaign for Real Ale and its pub protection officer, who wrote to me about this issue. The point they make is that the process of obtaining a market rent only option is massively complicated and virtually impossible for an unsupported tied tenant to use without expensive...

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: What estimate he has made of the number of journeys taken by bus in England in each of the last three years.

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...

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...
