Health and Social Care: Homelessness (19 Jun 2018)

Stella Creasy: What steps he is taking to ensure that homeless people are able to access healthcare and dentistry services.

Health and Social Care: Homelessness (19 Jun 2018)

Stella Creasy: Mags Drummond is a Walthamstow woman on a mission, to try to help our many rough sleepers get decent quality healthcare, but she, like me, has hit a brick wall with our local dentists and doctors. It is little wonder that one study shows that 15% of homeless people have pulled out their own teeth because they cannot get access to services. Will the Minister meet Mags and me to look at what...

NHS Long-Term Plan (18 Jun 2018)

Stella Creasy: I can understand why some in Government think that there is a Brexit dividend. After all, we know that the Health Secretary’s colleagues in the Home Office have been given enough money from Brexit to cover the cost of 20,000 nurses. His colleagues in the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs have been given 14,000 nurses’ worth of money and even his colleagues in the...

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

Stella Creasy: There are many trends from the 1990s that I would like to bring back to this country—for example, decent indie music—but rough sleeping is not one of them. I pay tribute to the Forest emergency night shelter in Waltham Forest, which helped 109 people in just one borough this past winter. The truth is, though, that the problem continues, and tonight approximately 40 people will...

Written Answers — Home Office: Domestic Violence (14 Jun 2018)

Stella Creasy: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, when he plans to (a) respond to the consultation on and (b) publish the Domestic Violence and Abuse Bill announced in the Queens Speech on 21st July 2017.

Business of the House (7 Jun 2018)

Stella Creasy: Will the Leader of the House update us on when the domestic abuse Bill—which could prevent a rape victim from having to give testimony in open court about their human rights breaches when it comes to abortion—will come to the House so that we can vote on repealing the Offences Against the Person Act 1861?

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

Stella Creasy: (Urgent Question): To ask the Northern Ireland Secretary, following the ruling of the Supreme Court, whether sections 58 and 59 of the Offences Against the Person Act 1861 and section 25 of the Criminal Justice Act (Northern Ireland) 1945 are incompatible with articles 3, 8 and 14 of the European convention on human rights.

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

Stella Creasy: Today, our Supreme Court has ruled that the law on abortion in Northern Ireland is in breach of the human rights of women in Northern Ireland. Let us weigh that sentence for a moment, as a House. Our own law is breaking the basic human rights of our own citizens. These are laws that the Government have said they will retain whether we leave the European Union or not. They are the laws that...

Offences Against the Person Act 1861 (5 Jun 2018)

Stella Creasy: I thank every Member who has contributed to this debate. I hope, first and foremost, that the Government have heard what was said by the hon. Member for Worthing West (Sir Peter Bottomley), who is my dear friend on this matter. This is a statement of intent. We want deeds, not just words. The women of Northern Ireland—indeed, the women of England and Wales—deserve modern abortion...

Offences Against the Person Act 1861 (5 Jun 2018)

Stella Creasy: In order to allow the residents of Northern Ireland to craft their own abortion laws, and so for that devolution process to be respected, will the hon. Lady be joining me and colleagues on both sides of the House in supporting the repeal of UK legislation that prevents Northern Ireland from doing this? Will she support the repeal of sections 58 and 59? It would be helpful if she were clear...

Offences Against the Person Act 1861 (5 Jun 2018)

Stella Creasy: Will the Secretary of State give way?

Offences Against the Person Act 1861 (5 Jun 2018)

Stella Creasy: It is worth pointing out that we are talking about the repeal of OPA across the United Kingdom. We are not talking about getting rid of the Infant Life (Preservation) Act 1929, which criminalises abortion after 24 weeks. Nobody is talking about changing the time limits in England and Wales, or imposing this in Northern Ireland. Clearly in this debate it is fact not fiction that matters.

Offences Against the Person Act 1861 (5 Jun 2018)

Stella Creasy: rose—

Offences Against the Person Act 1861 (5 Jun 2018)

Stella Creasy: I agree with everything the Secretary of State has just said. Will she explain why she thinks that repealing sections 58 and 59 of the Offences Against the Person Act would not allow that to happen? We think that it would.

Offences Against the Person Act 1861 (5 Jun 2018)

Stella Creasy: I beg to move, That this House has considered the role of the UK Parliament in repealing sections 58 and 59 of the Offences Against the Person Act 1861. I want to start by thanking you, Mr Speaker, for granting this debate and all the Members who have given their cross-party support. I have always believed that abortion is a non-partisan issue, and I want to pay tribute to the hon. Members...

Offences Against the Person Act 1861 (5 Jun 2018)

Stella Creasy: My hon. Friend makes a key point. Stopping the provision of abortion does not stop abortions happening; it simply increases the risk of a woman either having to make that degrading and lonely journey to another country or risk buying pills online and the problems that come with them, including the threat of prosecution if something goes wrong with the pills and she seeks medical help.

Offences Against the Person Act 1861 (5 Jun 2018)

Stella Creasy: I will happily give way to one of the co-sponsors of the debate.
