Valedictory Debate (5 Nov 2019)

Teresa Pearce: I would like to thank my fantastic family, my friends and my staff, who are amazing, as well as all the people I have worked with here and in the constituency, but most of all I would like to thank my husband, who nine years ago put his life, dreams and ambitions on hold so that I could follow mine. When you come into this place, it is the strangest thing. The first thing I did was to look...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (2 Oct 2019)

Teresa Pearce: Housing, I believe, is the first of the social services; without it, we cannot have education, productivity or health. The NHS has a diagnosis code for inadequate housing. The Department of Health wrote to me saying that poor housing costs the NHS £1.4 billion a year, but that figure is now four years old. Will the Secretary of State ensure that the Department of Health writes to me with the...

New Covent Garden Market — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (2 Jul 2019)

Teresa Pearce: It is my understanding that one of the key roles of the Covent Garden Market Authority is to nurture good relations with tenants. How do such actions nurture good relations?

Cystic Fibrosis Drugs: Orkambi — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (10 Jun 2019)

Teresa Pearce: The hon. Gentleman is being extremely generous in giving way. On the issue of shareholdings and profit, when I was doing research for this debate, I came across something in the Wall Street news that told me that Vertex gives a higher than average return on investment. Most companies that operate in this area give a return on investment to shareholders of 20%; last year, Vertex gave 45%.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Dartford Crossing: Revenue (2 May 2019)

Teresa Pearce: What the net revenue income has been from the Dartford crossing since construction debt relating to that crossing was repaid.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Dartford Crossing: Revenue (2 May 2019)

Teresa Pearce: I thank the Minister for his response, but according to my reading of the legislation and the accounts, the income from the Dartford crossing is paid to the Department for Transport with no ring fence, so it can be spent anywhere on anything transport related. Will the Minister confirm whether that is the case? Given the crossing’s adverse effect on Bexley and Dartford residents in terms of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (1 May 2019)

Teresa Pearce: In March 2014, my constituent Jadwinder Singh Bhogal went on holiday to Dubai and never came home. He was arrested, made to sign a confession in Arabic and convicted of cocaine possession, despite no drugs or evidence of drugs being found on him. He is now serving 25 years in a Dubai jail. We applied, under the prisoner transfer agreement, for him to serve his sentence in the UK so that his...

Local Government and Social Care Funding (24 Apr 2019)

Teresa Pearce: The Minister is saying that the Tory Government want to spend on things that work. I can tell him that what works is the troubled families programme, which is due to end next year. Will he take this opportunity to commit to the House to doing everything he can to keep that programme running after 2020?

South-Eastern Rail Franchise (23 Apr 2019)

Teresa Pearce: There appears to be a serious issue around rail pensions. The Minister has said that there are two pension-compliant bids on the table. Could he tell me whether the Department has made any changes to the franchise specifications in respect of pension obligations, and what conversations have been held with the Pensions Regulator regarding the deficit?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Access to Criminal Justice (23 Apr 2019)

Teresa Pearce: What steps he is taking to increase access to the criminal justice system.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Access to Criminal Justice (23 Apr 2019)

Teresa Pearce: I thank the Minister for that reply, but there is a crisis in legal aid and in legal representation. The Law Society data says that within five to 10 years there will be insufficient criminal duty solicitors in many regions. She has mentioned the review and mentioned more money, but what specific steps will she take to make sure that people have their right to be represented while being...

Brunei: Loan Charge (4 Apr 2019)

Teresa Pearce: I wasn’t.

Brunei: Loan Charge (4 Apr 2019)

Teresa Pearce: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Brunei: Loan Charge (4 Apr 2019)

Teresa Pearce: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Local Authorities: Children of EU Nationals (1 Apr 2019)

Teresa Pearce: What steps he is taking to ensure that local authorities settle the status of the children of EU nationals in their care.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Local Authorities: Children of EU Nationals (1 Apr 2019)

Teresa Pearce: The Home Office’s testing of the EU settlement scheme has highlighted real challenges for this group of vulnerable children. Across five authorities, only 16 children have secured settled status. Does she agree that, as corporate parents to these vulnerable children, we should be giving automatic settled status, and that those eligible for citizenship should have their fee waived to avoid...

Rail Services: South-east London — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (6 Mar 2019)

Teresa Pearce: Southeastern is full to busting at the moment, and given all the new development in my patch and in the right hon. Gentleman’s patch, does he share my concern about how on earth Southeastern is going to manage when it cannot manage at the moment? Does he believe that those developments will increase the risk of critical failure, given that the system will be overworked?

Rail Services: South-east London — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (6 Mar 2019)

Teresa Pearce: On the point about the new franchise, commuters in the right hon. Gentleman’s constituency and in mine have journeys that are meant to be about 30 to 40 minutes, but Delay Repay kicks in only if people are 30 minutes late. Under the new franchise, it will kick in if they are 15 minutes late. Does he agree that as Southeastern has opted to bid for the new franchise, it should bring in that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (21 Jan 2019)

Teresa Pearce: The Home Office has a service standard to deal with indefinite leave to remain applications of six months, unless they are complex, when there is no timescale at all. Reviewing my casework, I noticed the worrying trend of cases being badged complex just before the six months, and therefore having no service standard at all. Will the Minister let me know the current percentage of applications...

Togo: Human Rights (8 Jan 2019)

Teresa Pearce: On that point, my constituents have expressed dissatisfaction with how that system works. If I meet them again and they give examples of where it is ineffective, and I write to the Minister, will she respond?
