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...

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Voter Registration (22 Nov 2017)

Lilian Greenwood: What steps the Government are taking to ensure the accessibility of voter registration.

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Voter Registration (22 Nov 2017)

Lilian Greenwood: A 2014 survey by Mencap found that 60% of people with a learning disability found the process of registering to vote too difficult. Registration forms are often complicated and not accompanied by an easy read guide. The Electoral Commission report, “Elections for everyone”, published earlier this month, agrees and calls on the Minister to act. Will he commit to improving the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (21 Nov 2017)

Lilian Greenwood: We continue to hear reports of violence and human rights violations in Kashmir. Tensions in the region remain high, and there seems to have been little or no progress towards peace and security. What recent discussions about Kashmir has the Minister had with the Indian and Pakistani Governments, and what assessment has he made of prospects for any improvement in the security situation in the...

Community Policing — [Ms Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (7 Nov 2017)

Lilian Greenwood: Is that not precisely why the very people my hon. Friend talks about—police chiefs and police and crime commissioners—write: “The legitimacy of policing is at risk as the relationship with communities that underpins all activity is fading to a point where prevention, early intervention and core engagement that fosters feelings of safety are at risk of becoming...

Community Policing — [Ms Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (7 Nov 2017)

Lilian Greenwood: The hon. Gentleman makes an important point that in many ways goes to the heart of the debate. Of course we do not want people to start resorting to vigilante action, but that is what can happen when we face the loss of legitimacy of community policing. It is deeply worrying, and he is right to raise it.

Community Policing — [Ms Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (7 Nov 2017)

Lilian Greenwood: The right hon. Gentleman makes an excellent case. The demand on our police service comes not just from the increase in crime. The assessment of police resources by the National Police Chiefs Council and the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners, which was sent to the Minister, talks about non-crime demand, including increasing 999 calls, incidents involving people with mental health...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Foster Carers (6 Nov 2017)

Lilian Greenwood: What steps she is taking to increase the number of foster carers.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Foster Carers (6 Nov 2017)

Lilian Greenwood: I have had the privilege of meeting some of our Nottingham foster carers, and I know what an amazing job they do, often for very little monetary reward. However, local authority children’s services departments are under immense pressure—we have record numbers of young people in care, yet some departments have been forced to cut specialist support staff—and potential foster...

Exiting the Eu: Sectoral Impact Assessments (1 Nov 2017)

Lilian Greenwood: I will be very brief. Does my hon. Friend agree that the opposition given by Government Members is wholly confused? Of the last two speakers, one said that the reports cannot be released because that would lay open our hand in the negotiations and the other admitted that it would not because they would be provided in confidence to the Select Committee.

Exiting the Eu: Sectoral Impact Assessments (1 Nov 2017)

Lilian Greenwood: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Lilian Greenwood: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Grenfell Tower (19 Oct 2017)

Lilian Greenwood: The Secretary of State has confirmed that it is for local authorities to seek expert advice in determining what work is essential to keep tower block residents safe. As my hon. Friend the Member for Eltham (Clive Efford) said, fire chiefs’ advice is unambiguous: the retrofitting of sprinklers cannot be optional or a “nice-to-have”; it is something that must happen. Why,...
