Bill Presented: Clause 66 — VAT: refunds to certain charities (25 Mar 2015)

Julie Hilling: Does the Minister not see that raising VAT and cutting benefits hits the most vulnerable in society? Does he think it is right that children in this country should lose weight over school summer holidays because their parents do not have enough money to feed them, that people are dependent on food banks, and that we have had people starve to death because of benefit cuts? Is that the way this...

Bill Presented: Clause 66 — VAT: refunds to certain charities (25 Mar 2015)

Julie Hilling: It has taken me five years to learn that Prime Minister’s questions is about the Leader of the Opposition and us asking questions and the Prime Minister not answering them. It is not Leader of the Opposition’s questions; it is Prime Minister’s questions. We do not answer questions; the Government are supposed to.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (23 Mar 2015)

Julie Hilling: Crime rose by 6% in Greater Manchester last year. Will the Minister update us on her improvement plan with Action Fraud, and can she assure me that the defrauding of my constituents will be investigated and they will be kept up to date with the progress of that investigation?

Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (18 Mar 2015)

Julie Hilling: In his autumn statement, the Chancellor said: “We have shown in this Parliament that we can deliver spending reductions without damaging front-line public services if we are prepared to undertake reform.”—[ Official Report, 3 December 2014; Vol. 589, c. 309.] Today, in two short phrases, he said that to achieve his £30 billion savings he would cut £13 billion from Government...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Access to Justice (17 Mar 2015)

Julie Hilling: Let me give the Minister one more chance to answer a question on last week’s Justice Committee report on the civil legal aid cuts, which revealed that the Government have failed to achieve all three of their targets. Can the Minister confirm that there has been an underspend in the legal aid budget, and that exceptional case funding has failed to achieve the aim of protecting access to...

Julie Hilling: Has the Secretary of State made any assessment of the additional cost that householders have to meet because of the cuts that have been implemented in council budgets resulting in people now having to purchase the services that they desperately need?

Opposition Day — [19th Allotted Day]: General Election Television Debates (11 Mar 2015)

Julie Hilling: Does my hon. Friend not think that it is actually slightly worse than that? The Prime Minister is saying he will debate, but he is not saying he will debate head to head. He is trying to bamboozle people by saying he will take part in that debate. He is just saying things that are not really true.

Opposition Day — [19th Allotted Day]: General Election Television Debates (11 Mar 2015)

Julie Hilling: I thank the Minister for giving way; I thought he had sat down and had not allowed me in. Will he answer this question clearly for the record, because he has not done so yet: has the Prime Minister ruled out a head to head, potential Prime Minister with potential Prime Minister? Has he ruled that out, and am I correct in thinking that the debate he is offering is just one with other leaders?

Petitions: Compulsory CPR and Public Access Defibrillator education (10 Mar 2015)

Julie Hilling: Following this afternoon’s Westminster Hall debate, during which the Labour Front Bencher committed to the introduction of mandatory life-saving skills in schools, but the Minister would not, I am presenting this petition on behalf of the residents of Bolton West. It is similar to a British Heart Foundation petition signed by 83,500 people. The petition states: The Petition of residents of...

First Aid Techniques: National Curriculum — [Sir David Amess intheChair] (10 Mar 2015)

Julie Hilling: I had some optimism at the start of the Minister’s speech, but I have come back to a state of depression after listening to what he has had to say. He is talking about a list of issues that come to him, but how many of them could save 150,000 lives a year and how many would combine a range of issues including citizenship and boosting confidence? I ask him to consider the fact that this...

First Aid Techniques: National Curriculum — [Sir David Amess intheChair] (10 Mar 2015)

First Aid Techniques: National Curriculum — [Sir David Amess intheChair] (10 Mar 2015)

First Aid Techniques: National Curriculum — [Sir David Amess intheChair] (10 Mar 2015)

Julie Hilling: It is a real pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir David. I am grateful for the opportunity to have one last go in this Parliament to persuade the Government and my Front Benchers that there is a chance simply, easily, cheaply and immediately to save lives and to transform society. Teaching emergency life support skills in schools and the community is “a no brainer, it’s just...

First Aid Techniques: National Curriculum — [Sir David Amess intheChair] (10 Mar 2015)

Julie Hilling: The hon. and learned Gentleman clearly caught sight of my speech before he raised his point. I was about to go on to say that Mandy Hobbs was really lucky, too. Her 14-year-old daughter, Samantha, woke up to hear her father on the phone saying that he thought her mum was dead. Samantha had learnt CPR at her swimming life-saving club, and she says that she went on to autopilot and started...

First Aid Techniques: National Curriculum — [Sir David Amess intheChair] (10 Mar 2015)

Julie Hilling: I absolutely agree with the hon. Gentleman. For me, it starts in schools. If only we could have—I will go on to talk about this more—a generation of life savers coming out of school. We have millions of people in the community who will not have had the benefit of being trained in schools. I applaud his organisations and the organisations in my constituency and across the country that do...

First Aid Techniques: National Curriculum — [Sir David Amess intheChair] (10 Mar 2015)

Julie Hilling: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention. Absolutely, every school leaver a life saver is what we should be aiming for. This Government—it may be my Government in two months’ time—have a chance to make a real difference. We want the national curriculum to reflect the essential knowledge and understanding that pupils should be expected to have to enable them to take their place as an...

First Aid Techniques: National Curriculum — [Sir David Amess intheChair] (10 Mar 2015)

Julie Hilling: The hon. Gentleman is absolutely right and I congratulate him on Millie’s campaign, because it is absolutely crucial that people do not die when they could be saved. Currently, 7% of the population know how to save a life. Surely we could do much better. We could join other countries such as France, Denmark and Norway, where emergency life support skills are already part of the curriculum,...
