Amendment of the Law (19 Mar 2015)

Angie Bray: The Chancellor’s Budget yesterday has been warmly welcomed by business organisations up and down the country. The British Chambers of Commerce, for example, has said: “The Chancellor’s focus on business growth and prosperity will receive a warm welcome from businesses of all sizes”. It is certainly the kind of Budget that businesses in my constituency wanted to see, and what is good...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Fiscal Support for Businesses (10 Mar 2015)

Angie Bray: Does my hon. Friend agree that, thanks to our long-term economic plan, the Government have supported businesses through cutting businesses taxes? Does she further agree that the real difference between the Government and the Labour party’s approach is that while we have been cutting taxes on businesses, it wants to put them up?

[Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Harvey’s Law (2 Mar 2015)

Angie Bray: It is a pleasure to hear my right hon. Friend the Minister responding so positively to everything that has been said this afternoon. He will be aware that some of us who represent London constituencies might have to discuss the issue with City Hall, because, rather than the Highways Agency, Transport for London is responsible for some of the main roads that go through the capital. Has my...

[Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Harvey’s Law (2 Mar 2015)

Angie Bray: It is a pleasure to take part in this debate under your chairmanship, Mr Rosindell. I congratulate the hon. Member for Halton (Derek Twigg) on securing the debate on this important issue. I do not think that anyone—at least anyone with a heart—could fail to be moved by the sad story of Harvey. It is made only worse by the knowledge that what happened to Harvey happens far too often. For...

[Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Harvey’s Law (2 Mar 2015)

Angie Bray: Indeed. The hon. Gentleman caught me mid-sentence, just about to make that point. I was about to say that most people would prefer to know the worst, so at least they could come to terms with that, rather than worrying, with the most appalling imaginings, about what might have happened. I remember when my dog went missing in Hyde park. I called her Tuppence after I rescued her from Battersea...

Culture, Media and Sport Committee (26 Feb 2015)

Angie Bray: I congratulate my hon. Friend on his chairmanship of our Committee and the publication of the report. I am delighted to see that it recognises the inexorable move towards subscription television. I believe that people should pay for what they want to watch, rather than for what they do not watch, but may I express my reservations about some kind of household levy? I am uneasy about creating...

Opposition Day — [14th Allotted Day]: National Health Service (21 Jan 2015)

Angie Bray: In contrast to what we have heard from the Opposition, will my right hon. Friend join me in welcoming the seven-day-a-week GP surgeries opening up across Ealing and Acton and the plans for the new walk-in health centre for Acton? Will he join me in condemning the Labour-led council’s decision last night to cut the public health budget?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (19 Jan 2015)

Angie Bray: Will my hon. Friend join me in congratulating teachers and pupils at primary schools across Ealing on their latest key stage 2 standard assessment test results, which have taken them well above average? It is particularly good to note that pupils from the most disadvantaged backgrounds have done especially well this year.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: A and E (Major Incidents) (7 Jan 2015)

Angie Bray: My right hon. Friend will be aware that there have been significant changes to hospital services across north-west London. There is considerable concern from some of my constituents that the closure of A and E departments at Central Middlesex and Hammersmith hospitals has led to some of the increasing pressure elsewhere. Will he tell me whether there is any evidence of that?

Serious Crime Bill [Lords] (5 Jan 2015)

Angie Bray: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker, for giving me the opportunity to speak on this important Bill. While suggestions circulate that we are sitting in an inactive Parliament, it is gratifying to see that business of such significance is still being done. The Bill is forward looking in the issues it addresses. The need to update laws on matters such as the recovery of assets, online and organised...

Opposition Day — [11th Allotted Day]: Housing Benefit (Abolition of Social Sector Size Criteria) (17 Dec 2014)

Angie Bray: I absolutely appreciate the principle that we need to match housing to housing need, and we certainly need more family-sized houses for larger families. Does my hon. Friend agree, however, that for the spare room subsidy policy to work fairly, as well as effectively, there will have to be a sufficient number of one-bedroom properties for those who have to downsize to move into, so that they...

Written Answers — Department for Communities and Local Government: Local Government Finance: Ealing (16 Dec 2014)

Angie Bray: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, how much the London Borough of Ealing receives annually in total government grant; and if he will make a statement.

Opposition Day: [10th alloted day] — The Economy (26 Nov 2014)

Angie Bray: My hon. Friend is absolutely right to say that the public will not allow the wool to be pulled over their eyes. Does she agree that every survey imaginable shows that this Government have a very high rating for economic competence, whereas Labour is absolutely nowhere?

Isil: Armed Forces Covenant (24 Nov 2014)

Angie Bray: What progress he has made on strengthening the armed forces covenant.

Isil: Armed Forces Covenant (24 Nov 2014)

Angie Bray: Does my hon. Friend agree that it is encouraging that all local authorities and a growing number of companies have signed up to support the covenant? Does she further agree that the challenge now is to get those commitments turned into action?

New Member: National Health Service (Amended Duties and Powers) Bill (21 Nov 2014)

Angie Bray: Will my hon. Friend give way?

New Member: National Health Service (Amended Duties and Powers) Bill (21 Nov 2014)

Angie Bray: Does my hon. Friend agree that the most damaging thing for the NHS—patients and staff alike—is a lot of misleading scaremongering? I am afraid that we have heard more of that in the Chamber today. Will he correct the record to make sure that it is very clear that the pledge made by the Secretary of State for Health that the A and Es at Ealing and Charing Cross hospitals will both remain...

New Member: National Health Service (Amended Duties and Powers) Bill (21 Nov 2014)

Angie Bray: Will the right hon. Gentleman care to comment on the letter in TheDaily Telegraph today, signed by a number of doctors and led by the chairman of NHS Alliance, asking people not to support this Bill today, as it would be a backward step for patients?
