Debbie Abrahams: What assessment she has made of the effect on disabled people of the covid-19 outbreak.

Women and Equalities: Disabled People: Covid-19 (23 Sep 2020)

Debbie Abrahams: Between March and July, disabled people, including people with a health condition or impairment, accounted for almost 60% of all covid deaths, yet a survey of disabled people in Greater Manchester revealed that eight out of 10 were not included in the official Government shielded group, in spite of 57% having significant support needs. With the second wave upon us, what is the Secretary of...

Points of Order (16 Sep 2020)

Debbie Abrahams: On a point of order, Mr Speaker.

Points of Order (16 Sep 2020)

Debbie Abrahams: You should have had notice of it, Mr Speaker, so my apologies if it has not reached you. I, too, seek your guidance. I am frequently getting tardy and irrelevant responses from Ministers in relation to constituency casework. I am afraid that the worst culprits are the Department of Health and Social Care, the Treasury and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. In one...

Coronavirus (15 Sep 2020)

Debbie Abrahams: I do not underestimate the challenges the Health Secretary has faced over the past few months, but six months on, after many, many warnings of the likelihood of a second wave and of what would happen without a fully operational test, track and isolate system in place before lifting the lockdown, unfortunately the Government are still not getting the basics right. That is happening in my...

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (10 Sep 2020)

Debbie Abrahams: The Secretary of State’s response to my hon. Friend the Member for Plymouth, Sutton and Devonport (Luke Pollard) was slightly disappointing. The climate assembly was made up of 108 people, from all walks of life and from throughout the country, who considered the evidence and gave their time. The report makes evidence-based recommendations on how we should reach net zero by 2050. May I push...

Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (2 Sep 2020)

Debbie Abrahams: UNICEF has warned that covid is the greatest threat to children across the world. It estimates that 1.2 million children under five are at risk over the next six months. I am reassured by what the Foreign Secretary has said about guaranteeing the 0.7% and about the independent scrutiny, but he has not yet answered the question asked by my hon. Friend the Member for Wigan (Lisa Nandy) about...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Carers: Quarantine (22 Jul 2020)

Debbie Abrahams: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what discussions he has had with the Home Secretary on exempting carers of people with disabilities who are (a) directly employed as a personal assistant and (b) employed through a care agency registered with the Care Quality Commission from the 14-day quarantine period upon arrival in the UK.

Debbie Abrahams: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, whether care workers who are carrying out essential work for disabled people, either working directly as a personal assistant or being introduced through a CQC-registered care agency, are exempt from quarantine when entering the UK.

BBC (21 Jul 2020)

Debbie Abrahams: More than 4,000 households in my constituency of Oldham East and Saddleworth no longer qualify for a free TV licence. That is nearly three out of four over-75-year-olds. There is a theme in the questions. We have already heard that more than 1 million pensioners eligible for pension credit do not claim it. Instead of hand-wringing and saying it is other people’s jobs to do it, what will the...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Ukraine: Radicalism (21 Jul 2020)

Debbie Abrahams: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what recent assessment he has made of the level of white-supremacist violent extremism in Ukraine.

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Ukraine: Radicalism (21 Jul 2020)

Debbie Abrahams: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what discussions his Department has had with the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights on the activities of neo-Nazi groups in Ukraine.

Coronavirus Response (20 Jul 2020)

Debbie Abrahams: I, too, welcome the Health Secretary’s change of heart and his assurance that complete pillar 2 testing data will be sent to local public health departments each day and not each week. The delay has inhibited local public health departments’ ability to contact and trace covid-infected people, letting the virus spread in some areas. Given that many of us have been asking for these data for...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Ukraine: Radicalism (20 Jul 2020)

Debbie Abrahams: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what discussions his Department has had with the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights on the activities of neo-Nazi groups in Ukraine.

Business of the House (9 Jul 2020)

Debbie Abrahams: On 26 June, The Telegraph’s news site announced that half of the UK’s imported covid-19 infections are from Pakistan. That had no basis in fact and no reference to expert evidence, but it was followed by The Sun, MailOnline and, soon afterwards, far-right groups stoking anti-Muslim propaganda. This was nothing short of hate speech, and I know that just by raising it I will be targeted by...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Pest Control: Crime (8 Jul 2020)

Debbie Abrahams: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what steps his Department is taking to tackle the laying of illegal poison baits.

Coronavirus (7 Jul 2020)

Debbie Abrahams: The Secretary of State’s comments on Sunday, when he suggested that my Greater Manchester public health colleagues needed help in interpreting the pillar 2 data that they received from centrally contracted private labs, was nothing short of insulting. These are some of the most talented, dedicated and professional people with whom I have had the privilege to work. They do not need help;...
