NHS Long-Term Plan (18 Jun 2018)

Kate Green: May I press the Secretary of State on his answer to my hon. Friend the Member for Battersea (Marsha De Cordova), particularly in relation to profoundly disabled adults, who need not just excellent healthcare, not even just excellent physical and social care, but access to services that maximise their social participation? Will he say a little more about the work being done in parallel with...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (18 Jun 2018)

Kate Green: The Government are currently consulting on sites for Traveller families. Rather than simply looking at more enforcement, which police chiefs and others say will not work, what positive solutions is the Minister considering, and will he meet the all-party parliamentary group for Gypsies, Travellers and Roma to discuss some of those positive alternatives?

Backbench Business: Immigration Detention (Victims of Torture) — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (14 Jun 2018)

Kate Green: The Minister might not have the information before her, but I wonder whether she could write to me to advise me of the frequency of people being taken into detention, released, and then taken back into detention, and the reasons for that. She suggests that new information might come to light and people’s vulnerability may change over time. I accept that, but I would like a better...

Backbench Business: Immigration Detention (Victims of Torture) — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (14 Jun 2018)

Kate Green: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Sharma. I do not have a great deal to add to the eloquent speeches of my right hon. Friend the Member for Enfield North (Joan Ryan) and my hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Yardley (Jess Phillips). Like them, I have been absolutely devastated by some of the stories I have heard of what has been happening to vulnerable people, who...

Backbench Business: Immigration Detention (Victims of Torture) — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (14 Jun 2018)

Kate Green: My right hon. Friend is absolutely right, and when she was talking about detention not being proportionate, I thought, “How can it be proportionate, when more than half the people who are detained are clearly not a risk that means we have to lock them up? If they were, they would not be returned to the community.” It makes no sense. We need some clear answers from the Minister on...

Backbench Business: Immigration Detention (Victims of Torture) — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (14 Jun 2018)

Kate Green: I am very grateful to my hon. Friend for drawing attention particularly to the situation of women and, indeed, men who have been trafficked, because there is plenty of evidence that being in detention makes it harder for those individuals to receive the expert support and advice that they need, to be able to build up trust to report the experiences that they have had to the authorities and...

Backbench Business: Immigration Detention (Victims of Torture) — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (14 Jun 2018)

Kate Green: I congratulate my right hon. Friend on securing the debate. I draw the House’s attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests relating to the support I receive for my work on asylum and immigration. Does she agree that, for those who have already suffered torture and persecution in their home countries and who flee here for security, to have that pain...

Backbench Business: Immigration Detention (Victims of Torture) — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (14 Jun 2018)

Kate Green: I am sorry to intervene on my right hon. Friend again. Does she agree that one deficiency of the current arrangements for identifying vulnerable individuals is that, at that very first stage, Home Office staff rely on Home Office information and do not obtain other objective evidence, which might support their making a better decision?

Backbench Business - Windrush: 70TH Anniversarybackbench Business (14 Jun 2018)

Kate Green: I congratulate my hon. Friend on the speech she is making. She notes the contribution made by the Windrush generation in her constituency and in London, but I am sure she will also want to recognise their contribution right across the country, including by the families who moved to my city of Manchester.

Business of the House (7 Jun 2018)

Kate Green: I am glad you have called a woman, Mr Speaker. Will the Leader of the House arrange for an urgent statement to be made in response to the letter signed by me and more than 70 colleagues to the Home Secretary this week asking for an extension to the consultation on the Windrush compensation arrangements, which is due to close tomorrow? Black church leaders and Windrush defenders movements say...

Supreme Court Ruling: Abortion in Northern Ireland (7 Jun 2018)

Kate Green: May I say to the Secretary of State that the fact the decision on rape was a four-three majority decision means that it was a decision, an announcement, a pronouncement of the court. That is how the Supreme Court works; it does not matter how narrow the majority. May I also remind her of what Lord Kerr said? He said that “it is incumbent on the state”— the UK—...

Northern Rail Services: Greater Manchester — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (6 Jun 2018)

Kate Green: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for drawing attention to the situation faced by constituents trying to travel to exams. I know of exactly the same situation. Even more shockingly, when a taxi had to be used and the cost was claimed back from Northern rail, it said that such expense would not be covered by the compensation system.

Northern Rail Services: Greater Manchester — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (6 Jun 2018)

Kate Green: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Howarth, and I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Bolton North East (Sir David Crausby) on securing a debate that is important to all our constituents in Greater Manchester. As I said in the Chamber on Monday when the Secretary of State made a statement to the House, the problems my constituents are experiencing are not new. They...

Retail Sector (6 Jun 2018)

Kate Green: I cannot dispute what the Secretary of State says about the changing patterns of online shopping. He made a comment earlier about the quality of employment in low-cost supermarkets. Does he accept that it is also important that those online retail settings offer excellent employment conditions? Too often we hear of exploitative practices in these warehouses and of the abusive treatment of...

Retail Sector (6 Jun 2018)

Kate Green: I welcome this debate. My hon. Friend may be aware of research by Revo and intu shopping centres that looked at the UK’s appeal to international investors in the retail sector. They highlighted that business rates were the single biggest inhibitor of new international inward investment. Does she agree that that is a further reason why, in a post-Brexit environment, it will be all the...

Retail Sector (6 Jun 2018)

Kate Green: I am a proud USDAW member, and will my hon. Friend join me in commending its “Freedom From Fear” campaign, which seeks to ensure that shop workers are safe at work, travelling to work and leaving work? Too many of them still risk abuse and unpleasantness from customers in the workplace.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (5 Jun 2018)

Kate Green: If he will make a statement on his departmental responsibilities.
