Scallop Fishing: Bay of Seine: Proxy Voting (13 Sep 2018)

Emma Reynolds: It is a great pleasure to speak, yet again, on the issue of proxy voting for MPs who become new parents. I welcome the announcement the Leader of the House has made today that there will be a substantive motion and a vote on this issue. I would just say to her that there is some urgency to this debate. The biological clock is ticking: three hon. Ladies have recently given birth and two are...

Scallop Fishing: Bay of Seine: Proxy Voting (13 Sep 2018)

Emma Reynolds: I could not agree more. As I said, although I was on informal maternity leave, in every week of that maternity leave I checked emails, I phoned the office and my staff texted me—although they were careful about not bothering me all the time. That comes with the nature of the job, and I am not complaining about it. However, I am saying that it would have been much easier for me if I had...

Scallop Fishing: Bay of Seine: Proxy Voting (13 Sep 2018)

Emma Reynolds: I am listening carefully to the hon. Gentleman’s speech, and I know that he has given the matter a lot of thought. Several hon. Members have mentioned unintended consequences, so will he spell out what he is talking about there?

Scallop Fishing: Bay of Seine: Proxy Voting (13 Sep 2018)

Emma Reynolds: I will be brief because I will touch on this in my speech. I am listening carefully to what the hon. Gentleman is saying about unintended consequences. Let not the perfect be the enemy of the good. I would not have minded if any of those little things had happened when I was on maternity leave, because at least I would have had most of my votes cast. In the current circumstances, none of my...

Scallop Fishing: Bay of Seine: Proxy Voting (13 Sep 2018)

Emma Reynolds: I gave birth on Good Friday last year, four days before the general election was called. Somebody locally said to me, “I didn’t think you’d stand again because you’ve just had a baby.” When I said, “Would you say that to my husband?” he did not really say anything in return.

Scallop Fishing: Bay of Seine: Proxy Voting (13 Sep 2018)

Emma Reynolds: Does the hon. Lady find it mysterious, as I did at the time, that the right hon. Gentleman actually remembered the pairing system on the other votes, which were not so close?

Scallop Fishing: Bay of Seine: Business of the House (13 Sep 2018)

Emma Reynolds: I second the call for a debate on the gig economy. Of course it is welcome that this sector of the economy employs thousands of people across the UK, but what the archbishop was referring to, apart from the fact that these companies are not paying enough tax, is the poor working conditions in these companies. The GMB trade union made a freedom of information request of Amazon, which showed...

Brexit Negotiations and No Deal Contingency Planning (4 Sep 2018)

Emma Reynolds: At the weekend, Michel Barnier said that after Brexit, European car makers would have to be careful not to use too many parts made in Britain if they wish to benefit from EU trade deals with third countries, such as South Korea. What is the Secretary of State’s response to those comments and what will the Government do to mitigate that devastating impact on our car industry?

HMP Birmingham (4 Sep 2018)

Emma Reynolds: How on earth did G4S’s management of HMP Birmingham lose control of the prison so dramatically? What is the Minister going to do about the poor level of retention of experienced officers, with the number of those leaving their jobs having doubled in the past two years?

Windrush (4 Sep 2018)

Emma Reynolds: The Minister is aware of a constituent of mine, Paulette Wilson, a 62-year-old grandmother who came here more than 50 years ago from Jamaica and who was detained at Yarl’s Wood and Heathrow detention centre last year and nearly deported back to Jamaica. I ask my question on behalf of her and all those in a similar situation. I heard what the Minister said about the compensation scheme...

Proxy Voting (18 Jul 2018)

Emma Reynolds: Let’s be as good as Sweden, shall we? Depriving the hon. Member for East Dunbartonshire (Jo Swinson), who was at home taking care of her three-week-old baby, of a pair last night was disgraceful, but depriving her of the opportunity to represent her constituents was unacceptable. I was on so-called maternity leave last year, and was hauled in several times, sometimes late at night,...

Trade Bill: Transfer Schemes (17 Jul 2018)

Emma Reynolds: If the customs union is not important, why have BMW, Jaguar Land Rover and Airbus suggested that they need to keep the current border arrangements. If we are to preserve just-in-time manufacturing in this country—Jaguar Land Rover is on the outskirts of my constituency—we must either have a customs union or find an equivalent, as suggested by the hon. Member for Wimbledon...

Electoral Commission Investigation: Vote Leave (17 Jul 2018)

Emma Reynolds: Today, Darren Grimes of BeLeave has accused the Electoral Commission on Twitter of putting him through hell by seeking “to justify this by saying that I failed a box ticking exercise”. Can the Minister confirm that what has happened here is much, much more serious than that? The Electoral Commission has found that Vote Leave broke the law, that it cheated during this referendum,...
