Statutory PHSE Education — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (6 Feb 2018)

Teresa Pearce: I thank everybody who has taken part today; this is a very important subject. I was a little concerned to hear the Minister talk about first aid in schools and only mention defibrillators. Defibrillators are very important, but first aid in school covers all sorts of things. A defibrillator will not help if somebody is having an epileptic attack. All sorts of first aid needs to be taught, not...

Statutory PHSE Education — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (6 Feb 2018)

Teresa Pearce: I beg to move, That this House has considered the matter of statutory personal, health, social and economic education. In March 2017 the then Secretary of State for Education, the right hon. Member for Putney (Justine Greening), announced her intention of putting relationships and sex education on a statutory footing, and of creating a power to make PSHE statutory in future, following...

Statutory PHSE Education — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (6 Feb 2018)

Teresa Pearce: I agree. Things work best when the home and the school work in partnership, not when they are in conflict. I am the mother of a teacher who often tells me about problems she has in trying to teach religious education in school. Some parents want their child removed from the lessons, because they do not want their child to be taught about other religions. That does not help. All children...

Statutory PHSE Education — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (6 Feb 2018)

Teresa Pearce: I absolutely agree; that is almost the next point I was coming on to. The training needs to be appropriate to the developmental level, but no matter how young children are, they can start learning about things such as what to do if they get a cut, how to put somebody in the recovery position and how to ring for help. Those are important things. Beyond the process of learning those skills, as...

Petition - Family Re-Unification for Refugee Children: ST Patricks Primary, Troon, and Symington Primary: South-eastern Rail Franchise (24 Jan 2018)

Teresa Pearce: Is the Minister aware that the line from Bexleyheath to Victoria has a stop at a major hospital, and many people on that line work there or have to attend as patients? Will there not be a huge effect on that line?

Petition - Family Re-Unification for Refugee Children: ST Patricks Primary, Troon, and Symington Primary: South-eastern Rail Franchise (24 Jan 2018)

Teresa Pearce: I thank my hon. Friend for securing this important debate. What he says about Belvedere and Erith stations in my constituency is true: services to Charing Cross will be stopped and the Thameslink will not stop there. There are substantial new housing developments, and the people who move in will stand on the platforms at Belvedere and Erith and watch trains whizz past them, with no way for...

Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation and Liability for Housing Standards) Bill (19 Jan 2018)

Teresa Pearce: I thank my hon. Friend for promoting this private Member’s Bill. Morally, we know that we must take up this issue, but is she surprised to know that that is also the case financially? This month, I received a letter from the Department of Health and Social Care, which stated that conditions of poor-quality housing cost the NHS—and this is a conservative estimate—an estimated...

Written Answers — Department for Communities and Local Government: Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Reorganisation (16 Jan 2018)

Teresa Pearce: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, what the estimated cost of the re-branding of his Department is.

Backbench Business: Deafness and Hearing Loss — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (30 Nov 2017)

Teresa Pearce: It is a pleasure to see you in the Chair, Ms Buck. I too express gratitude to my hon. Friend the Member for Poplar and Limehouse (Jim Fitzpatrick), not just for obtaining the debate, but for the work he has done on deafness and hearing loss for many years; he is a great champion of the cause. I also want to mention the hon. Member for Rochester and Strood (Kelly Tolhurst), who shared her...

Residential Premises: Product Safety and Fire Risk — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (1 Nov 2017)

Teresa Pearce: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mrs Main. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Poplar and Limehouse (Jim Fitzpatrick) for obtaining this important debate. It has been good to hear from fellow members, from both sides of the House, of the APPG on fire safety rescue. The Grenfell Tower fire has brought fire safety to the top of the agenda yet again, but it has been at the...

Tobacco Control Plan: Valproate and Foetal Anticonvulsant Syndrome (19 Oct 2017)

Teresa Pearce: Two years ago, I asked the Minister to extend the Primodos inquiry to include valproate, but my request was declined because, I was told, the two issues were very different, yet they seem to be quite similar. Does the hon. Lady think that that was a missed opportunity?

Tobacco Control Plan: Valproate and Foetal Anticonvulsant Syndrome (19 Oct 2017)

Teresa Pearce: Does the hon. Lady find it even more shocking that it was decided to keep this information from women in 1973-74, in the wake of the thalidomide scandal, when it should have been uppermost in people’s minds that pregnant women needed warning about the drugs they took? That should have made it more likely that women were informed about the risks.

Taylor Review: Working Practices (11 Jul 2017)

Teresa Pearce: Speaking at the launch this morning, Mr Taylor suggested that traditional cash-economy workers such as window cleaners could use an app to collect money and declare directly to Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs, so why does Uber, which has the most cutting-edge, fully automated app, not seem to declare the payments it makes to drivers directly to HMRC or to collect the national...
