Covid-19: Requirements for Employees to be Vaccinated — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (24 Jan 2022)

Esther McVey: I have heard it said that the mandation policy is some sort of nudging exercise, a way to get as many NHS workers vaccinated as possible, but it will not be implemented. If that is true—well, even if it is not true—as distasteful a method as that is, it does provide the Government with a get-out, so please will the Minister take back to the Government all the powerful points that he has...

Economic Update (3 Feb 2022)

Esther McVey: Many families across the country will struggle with their energy bills this year, so I am grateful that we have a Chancellor who is in touch with that. Will he commit to continuing to ensure that those in middle Britain, as well as those on the very lowest incomes, are supported by this Government?

Children’s Mental Health (8 Feb 2022)

Esther McVey: Given that the hon. Lady and her party, unlike me, were enthusiastic supporters of lockdown measures and closing schools, and were not prepared to stand up to the teaching unions, does she accept any responsibility at all for this mental health crisis among young people, because those lockdowns have had such a negative impact on our young people’s mental health?

North of England: Infrastructure Spending — [James Gray in the Chair] (25 Nov 2020)

Esther McVey: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gray, and I thank my hon. Friend the hon. Member for Southport (Damien Moore) for securing this important debate. The topic is broad, but I will confine my remarks to Tatton and Cheshire, and will look at cost viability and prioritisation as a good Conservative should. I want to bring a good dose of public common sense to Parliament for...

Family Visits in Health and Social Care Settings: Covid-19 (11 Nov 2020)

Esther McVey: I remind hon. Members that there have been some changes to normal practice in order to support the new call list system and to ensure that social distancing can be respected. Members should sanitise their microphones using the cleaning materials provided before they use them, and then place those materials in the bin. They should also respect the one-way system around the room. Members should...

Muslim Community in Wales — [Esther McVey in the Chair] (23 Feb 2022)

Esther McVey: I allowed Afzal Khan to carry on giving his speech because it was important to get it on the record. It was out of scope of the debate today, but I did feel that he should have the time to get it on the record. Maybe it is for a future debate as well.

Child Sexual Exploitation by Organised Networks (23 Feb 2022)

Child Sexual Exploitation by Organised Networks (23 Feb 2022)

The Secretary of State was asked: Topical Questions (28 Feb 2022)

Esther McVey: Constituents in Tatton are increasingly concerned about the growing number and range of online fraud and scams, and the ability of Action Fraud to deal with them.
