Orkambi and Cystic Fibrosis — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (19 Mar 2018)

Stella Creasy: My hon. Friend is making an incredibly powerful speech. May I add the voice of my six-year-old constituent? She would not benefit from Orkambi, but we must recognise that, if we do not get this right, the other treatments that might help her will be subject to similar delays. She is only six years old, but she does not need any delay. Does my hon. Friend agree that this matter is not only...

Integrated Communities (14 Mar 2018)

Stella Creasy: I welcome the money being given to my borough, the Borough of Waltham Forest. Had the Secretary of State had the courtesy of giving me more than an hour’s notice this morning, I would have happily joined him on his visit to my constituency to meet the women and, indeed, men of Walthamstow, where we have a strong track record of community engagement. I am sure that our community would...

Hate Crime: Treatment of House of Commons Staff (12 Mar 2018)

Stella Creasy: May I put on record my support for the work that the Leader of the House, you Mr Speaker, and all members of the working group have done since November on this issue? Does the right hon. Lady agree that we need to take the politics out of this altogether? If people are to have confidence that we are truly listening, that victims will be believed and that we will have a proper process, it is...

Hate Crime (12 Mar 2018)

Stella Creasy: It was Friday night when I started to receive reports from residents in Walthamstow that they had received one of these letters, with the fear and the terror that that caused, at the very point when I was helping other residents to report anti-Semitic graffiti that they had found in our community. Will the Minister join me in welcoming the work that Tell MAMA and the Community Security Trust...

Bills Presented: Vote 100 and International Women’s Day (8 Mar 2018)

Stella Creasy: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker—it is wonderful to see the number of men who are in the Chamber for this debate growing exponentially as we continue, in whatever role. So many Members have made fantastic speeches, talking about the past and what we have achieved, but I want to honour International Women’s Day in the way that I feel is best. I consider International Women’s Day...

Bills Presented: Vote 100 and International Women’s Day (8 Mar 2018)

Stella Creasy: I completely agree. Let me put on record that if I were ever to face problems in my workplace, I would certainly hope that the hon. Lady would act as shop steward.

Bills Presented: Vote 100 and International Women’s Day (8 Mar 2018)

Stella Creasy: I know that the hon. Lady would fight the good fight. She is absolutely right: this is about representation and voice, and we see the impact of women not having that voice. This is not just about gender; it is also about ethnicity. We know when we talk about inequalities in pay that our sisters from the black and ethnic minority communities face even higher differentials, and we, as a...

Bills Presented: Vote 100 and International Women’s Day (8 Mar 2018)

Stella Creasy: The Minister will know that, last week, the United Nations convention on the elimination of all forms of discrimination against women said that the way we treat women in Northern Ireland, denying them access to abortion in their home nation, is a form of violence against women. Today, 135 parliamentarians from throughout the House have written to her asking her to commit to providing an...

Misogyny as a Hate Crime — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (7 Mar 2018)

Stella Creasy: We must be very careful when we talk about being “robust”, because we are putting this back on to women and how they manage these experiences, rather than challenging the behaviour. The Minister says that this is about being a minority, but the disproportionate balance of power in our society means that one “minority”—men—have disproportionate power over...

Misogyny as a Hate Crime — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (7 Mar 2018)

Stella Creasy: I completely agree about the importance of getting sex and relationships education into every school. It is age-appropriate and sensitively done, so does the Minister share my concern that parental withdrawal might undermine the principle of giving every young person the best start in life and the best values about how we should treat each other?

Misogyny as a Hate Crime — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (7 Mar 2018)

Stella Creasy: It is a pleasure to be able to contribute to the debate, Sir David, and I apologise for having been a little late, due to the vagaries of the Victoria line. My hon. Friend the Member for Great Grimsby (Melanie Onn) made a powerful speech and has campaigned powerfully on this issue. Women in Walthamstow feel very strongly about the gauntlet that they too often have to run when they walk down...

Misogyny as a Hate Crime — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (7 Mar 2018)

Stella Creasy: I am pleased that my hon. Friend has introduced the debate, not least because I am a strong defender of the reputation of men. Sexual harassment is not a given—people can choose not to do it—so it is really important in debates that we do not disrespect men by somehow suggesting that they are incapable of controlling their behaviour. I am pleased that she is setting out a way in...

Yarl’S Wood Detention Centre (6 Mar 2018)

Stella Creasy: I want to put on record my support for the work that the shadow Home Secretary has been doing on this issue and for the work of my hon. Friend the Member for Stoke-on-Trent North (Ruth Smeeth), who has fought tirelessly for her constituents. I am grateful that the Minister has listened and agreed to review the case. For many of us, the trouble with this is that we are talking about an...

Uk/EU Future Economic Partnership (5 Mar 2018)

Stella Creasy: My constituency neighbour, the right hon. Member for Chingford and Woodford Green (Mr Duncan Smith), may tell the Prime Minister that cherries are there to be picked and cake is there to be eaten, but however sweet it seems fudge is no way to run the country. So can she tell us straight? There are £400 million of public contracts that have full or partial EU funding and are due to...

Business of the House: Independent Complaints and Grievance Policy (28 Feb 2018)

Stella Creasy: Abraham Lincoln said: “Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.” What we have been talking about today is what happens when men—and it does tend to be mainly men—have power and how power can be misused. In that sense, I start by paying tribute to the Leader of the House, the shadow Leader of the House and all...

Mental Health Act: CQC Report (27 Feb 2018)

Stella Creasy: Further to that response, the CQC says that it has seen limited or no improvement in the key concerns that it has raised in previous years. The problems are long-standing and they have been raised by the quality regulator in previous reports to Parliament. Does the Minister not understand, when she tries to tell us that sunlight is the best disinfectant, that all we are seeing in our mental...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (27 Feb 2018)

Stella Creasy: Could the Chancellor set out the benefits or otherwise of the arrangements the Government appear to have for a customs union between Camden, Islington and Westminster?

Syria: De-Escalation Zones: Points of Order (26 Feb 2018)

Stella Creasy: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. In the Foreign Secretary’s contributions, he suggested that in my contribution to the urgent question I had called for military intervention in Ghouta. Actually, I simply called for him to pick up the phone to the Russian president. I wonder if there is a way to correct the record to make it clear what I said.

Syria: De-Escalation Zones (26 Feb 2018)

Stella Creasy: May I seek two points of clarity from the Foreign Secretary? He says that we must “bear down on Russia”. Can he tell us explicitly whether anyone from his Government has sought to contact President Putin directly about the situation in Ghouta? He also says that he has met his Turkish counterpart. Did he ask him explicitly about Operation Olive Branch, and did he discuss ensuring...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Security Spending (Calais) (26 Feb 2018)

Stella Creasy: How much and what proportion of the Government’s actual and planned spending on security in Calais will be allocated to anti-trafficking and child protection.
