Social Care (Liverpool) (7 Mar 2017)

Steve Rotheram: I am trying to be helpful to the Minister. I quoted a former director of adult social care in Liverpool, Samih Kalakeche, who said: “If we don’t do something within the next six months, I believe social services will not exist” by the time that the Minister believes we will get the additional funding.

Social Care (Liverpool) (7 Mar 2017)

Steve Rotheram: Will the Minister therefore pay tribute to Liverpool for what it has done and its innovative approach? My question was about councils that have had similar cuts to Liverpool of around 60%. None of the councils that he mentioned has had the same degree of cuts as Liverpool City Council.

Social Care (Liverpool) (7 Mar 2017)

Steve Rotheram: It’s only in May!

Social Care (Liverpool) (7 Mar 2017)

Steve Rotheram: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Liverpool, Riverside (Mrs Ellman), my constituency neighbour, on securing this important debate and on her speech, during which she laid bare any claim by the Government that they have any intention other than passing the buck for the health and social care crisis. The Minister will...

Sale of Student Loans: Regulation (7 Mar 2017)

Steve Rotheram: I am worried that the Minister seems reluctant to agree to the suggestion of my hon. Friend the Member for Sheffield Central (Paul Blomfield), which would assure students that the terms will not be changed in the future.

PRAYERS - [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] : Liverpool City Region (Poverty) — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (1 Mar 2017)

Steve Rotheram: I could simply use the time allocated—just over a minute—to enter into a stats war with the Minister. There are certainly more people on zero-hours contracts, more in insecure work and more working families in poverty. However, I will use the time to concentrate on some of the questions I asked. Obviously, there are different methodologies by which we collate statistics, but as local MPs...

PRAYERS - [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] : Liverpool City Region (Poverty) — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (1 Mar 2017)

Steve Rotheram: I beg to move, That this House has considered poverty in the Liverpool city region. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Howarth. I welcome right hon. and hon. Friends from across the city region to this important debate; we speak with one voice on poverty in our area. Poverty is not an ephemeral concept. For far too many people in our city region, it is part of their daily...

PRAYERS - [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] : Liverpool City Region (Poverty) — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (1 Mar 2017)

Steve Rotheram: I absolutely accept that. If lines are drawn right across maps of the city region, there are similar disparities and instances in which life expectancy rates are completely at odds with the attempt to improve everybody’s life chances, as the Prime Minister said she would on the steps of Downing Street. Will the Minister address the fact that the 55% of working families in poverty—a record...

PRAYERS - [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] : Liverpool City Region (Poverty) — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (1 Mar 2017)

Steve Rotheram: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. Of our great achievements, removing that link was certainly important in taking huge swathes of older people out of the cycle of poverty. The indicators and indices of multiple deprivation have gone backwards under the current Government. It is estimated that 91,000 children in the city region are growing up in poverty. Analysis by the Children’s Society...

PRAYERS - [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] : Liverpool City Region (Poverty) — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (1 Mar 2017)

Steve Rotheram: My hon. Friend is absolutely right that in-work poverty is increasing. That can be tackled by giving people a proper living wage. That is something that we have said a future Labour Government will do. According to the Office for National Statistics, 46% of individuals living in households in the lowest total wealth quintile are in financial debt, which is twice as high as households in the...

PRAYERS - [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] : Liverpool City Region (Poverty) — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (1 Mar 2017)

Steve Rotheram: I will concentrate on the first bit, rather than the second bit, if that is okay. On the progress made under the Labour Government to tackle what has to be described as the scourge of people living in substandard accommodation, we did an awful lot of good, and we were hoping to do even more. People have to understand that when they are heating a home without double glazing, for example, the...

PRAYERS - [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] : Liverpool City Region (Poverty) — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (1 Mar 2017)

Steve Rotheram: Like many people here, I was at the debate about FE funding and the need to reduce the Government’s proposed cuts. We partially succeeded in doing that, but the proposed cuts to the budgets of FE institutions across the city region are still significant and will prevent them from doing some of the things that the Government want them to do. The Government want 3 million apprenticeships in...

Supply and Appropriation (Anticipation and Adjustments) Bill: Bus Services Bill [Lords] (1 Mar 2017)

Steve Rotheram: Will the right hon. Lady give way?

Supply and Appropriation (Anticipation and Adjustments) Bill: Bus Services Bill [Lords] (1 Mar 2017)

Steve Rotheram: I apologise to my hon. Friend for being late for the debate. Members will know that I have other duties on a Wednesday. Does he agree that the Bill and its related secondary legislation and guidance should enable a simple and straightforward process for metro mayors to introduce bus franchising in their area if that is what they and their combined authorities wish to do?

Police Grant (22 Feb 2017)

Steve Rotheram: The hon. Gentleman is talking about confidence in the police. Just last night in my constituency, a convicted murderer, who was taken to the local hospital in a taxi, absconded because a taxi was called to return him back to prison. Is not the fact that police numbers are a factor in how prisoners are taken to and from appointments outside prison part of the problem of confidence that the...

The Government's Plan for Brexit (7 Dec 2016)

Steve Rotheram: I agree with my right hon. Friend that it is certainly not xenophobic or racist to call out unscrupulous employers who are causing some of the problems in our working-class areas by allowing the undercutting of wages, which is causing resentment from people who work in traditional industries such as the construction sector. Is not that what we really need to understand? We hear it constantly...

State Pension Age: Women (30 Nov 2016)

Steve Rotheram: Does the Minister accept that the fundamental issue here is not equalisation, because that has been agreed, but fairness? He can give comfort to the 63,000 WASPI women in Merseyside who, through a quirk of their birthdate, will be hit hard and penalised. He can announce transitional arrangements that would give them some comfort that that is not going to happen.
