Women and Equalities: Access to Abortion Services (13 Sep 2018)

Stella Creasy: What steps the Government are taking to ensure access to abortion services for women that travel to England from Northern Ireland.

Women and Equalities: Access to Abortion Services (13 Sep 2018)

Stella Creasy: Recently, the Government announced that they will echo Scotland in giving women the right to take early medical abortion pills at home. In Scotland, however, there is a residency test for this healthcare, which, if copied in England, will deny the 28 women a week who are now coming from Northern Ireland for an abortion in the UK, that choice of procedure. Will the Minister pledge to work with...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Sri Lanka: Missing Persons (13 Sep 2018)

Stella Creasy: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what diplomatic steps he is taking to support investigations into cases of enforced disappearance in Sri Lanka; and if he will make a statement.

Miscellaneous: Requirement to amend guidance (5 Sep 2018)

Stella Creasy: I thank the Minister for listening. For the first time, we are now saying as a country that misogyny is not a part of life or something that should be tolerated but something we are going to tackle. Her commitment to the Law Commission review of all forms of hate crime, including misogyny, and the need for new and existing resources to fund it, is really welcome and a positive reflection of...

Miscellaneous: Requirement to amend guidance (5 Sep 2018)

Stella Creasy: I feel the need to stand up for the members of the Committee, having been a member of it myself, and to reflect that the discussions we had in Committee about treating misogyny as a hate crime did not receive Front-Bench support. That made me, as a Back-Bench Member scrutinising the Bill, reflect on what more could be done to win that argument. It is not always a good thing to be told no.

Miscellaneous: Requirement to amend guidance (5 Sep 2018)

Stella Creasy: I understand the point that my colleague is making, but women in this country have suffered from this chicken-and-egg syndrome for too long. The idea is that because the offence exists, somehow it will be taken seriously, but the bitter reality of women’s experience shows that that is not the case. New clause 1 is designed to amend the guidance that is given to the police in recognition...

Miscellaneous: Requirement to amend guidance (5 Sep 2018)

Stella Creasy: As ever, my hon. Friend is on the money about the importance of a victim-centred approach. We know from Nottingham—[Interruption.] I do apologise; I meant Nottinghamshire—sorry, Frodo. We know from those examples that recognition of the multiple kinds of intersectional hostility that women may face has been a powerfully positive experience, particularly for women from black and...

Miscellaneous: Requirement to amend guidance (5 Sep 2018)

Stella Creasy: I will happily give way to the hon. Gentleman because I know he feels very strongly about this.

Miscellaneous: Requirement to amend guidance (5 Sep 2018)

Stella Creasy: It is almost as though the hon. Gentleman read my mind—he is right. The data shows us that 15% of young girls say that they are being groped, and there might be somebody behind that and we want to record where it is happening. Clearly, this is not just about how people use mobile phones in the modern world. It is about the hatred towards women that exists among a small group of men in...

Miscellaneous: Requirement to amend guidance (5 Sep 2018)

Stella Creasy: Absolutely. I would love it if all police forces, including the Metropolitan police—I know that the Mayor of London is looking into this issue—could learn from Nottinghamshire police and the other four forces that are acting, but I also recognise that the police are asking Parliament to offer guidance on these issues, and that is what we can do today. If we change the law and...

Miscellaneous: Requirement to amend guidance (5 Sep 2018)

Stella Creasy: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.

Miscellaneous: Requirement to amend guidance (5 Sep 2018)

Stella Creasy: I want to put on record my tremendous respect for the very hard work done by Gina Martin to get this legislation before Parliament and by the hon. Member for Bath (Wera Hobhouse). It is a testament to the power of a good argument whose time has come. All these women are right that we should not wait around for this legislation, but we should make sure that it works. I also want to put on...

Miscellaneous: Requirement to amend guidance (5 Sep 2018)

Stella Creasy: As ever, I agree with much of what the right hon. Lady says. I think we need to say that the bigger thing she is talking about is misogyny. There are men out there who are hostile towards women and act accordingly. As a result, 51% of our population experiences harassment and a particular type of crime. At the moment, we cannot name, recognise and differentiate it, and therefore say, as we do...

Miscellaneous: Requirement to amend guidance (5 Sep 2018)

Stella Creasy: I will happily give way to my colleague from the Bill Committee.

Miscellaneous: Requirement to amend guidance (5 Sep 2018)

Stella Creasy: I hesitate to say that the hon. Gentleman was not listening to what I said, but this was what the police said. Such a case will never get to a point at which a jury or somebody looks at the evidence base because we do not have a commitment to recording and recognising misogyny. Such a commitment would mean that the police would record and recognise it in the same way as racial or religious...

Miscellaneous: Requirement to amend guidance (5 Sep 2018)

Stella Creasy: I completely agree. This is the point about changing the mindset. Let me reassure the hon. Member for Cheltenham (Alex Chalk) that where police forces, particularly in Nottingham, have started to record misogyny as a hate crime—this is not a new idea—it is transforming the experience of women not just when it comes to street harassment, but when it comes to violence against women...

Miscellaneous: Requirement to amend guidance (5 Sep 2018)

Stella Creasy: I will happily give way to a Nottingham MP and then to the right hon. Gentleman, but then I really must make some progress, because I am conscious that other Members want to speak.

Miscellaneous: Requirement to amend guidance (5 Sep 2018)

Stella Creasy: I desperately apologise to the people of Nottinghamshire for forgetting the “Shire”—I am not a fan of “The Lord of the Rings”. I hope the right hon. Lady will forgive me.

Widowed Parent’S Allowance (5 Sep 2018)

Stella Creasy: I have to tell the Minister that I met his predecessors about this issue, because it is clear that legislation written in 1958 should not mean that children in 2018 live in poverty. We have cases of parents having to get married in intensive care units to avoid the humiliation that this legislation entails. Will he learn from Germany, where the money follows the child through orphan pensions...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Dentistry: Fines (4 Sep 2018)

Stella Creasy: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, how many fines of what level have been issued to how many dentists by the NHS Business Services Authority for providing FP17 forms without the address of a patient.
