Grenfell Tower Inquiry — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (14 May 2018)

Lucy Powell: The hon. and learned Lady is making an excellent speech. I wonder whether she has looked at the aftermath of the Manchester Arena attack, which happened around the same time. Mayor Andy Burnham instigated the Kerslake review very quickly, and put the families and their wishes at its heart. That review has already reported, and every single recommendation has been agreed to.

Tributes: Baroness Jowell: Schools That Work For Everyone (14 May 2018)

Lucy Powell: It is regrettable that we are having to have this debate yet again. The grammar school the Secretary of State attended, St Ambrose in Trafford, has just 25 children on free school meals. Across the whole of Trafford, less than 2.5% of children are on free school meals. That compares with 25% in Manchester, where the attainment gap is narrower than it is in Trafford. In fact, the attainment...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Social Mobility Action Plan (14 May 2018)

Lucy Powell: What steps he has taken to improve social mobility since the publication of the Social Mobility Action Plan.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Social Mobility Action Plan (14 May 2018)

Lucy Powell: I thank the Secretary of State for that reply. As we rightly pay tribute to the amazing Dame Tessa Jowell, who pioneered Sure Start centres, is now not the moment for us to come together across this House and recognise that boosting the early years is the route to social mobility in this country? Even George Osborne said that to the Education Committee the week before last. Will the Secretary...

Health and Social Care: Social Media: Children’s Mental Health (8 May 2018)

Lucy Powell: Speak to any young person about what is causing child mental health issues, and the No. 1 issue is not social media, but exam and test pressure in schools, as we have found in the joint inquiry by the Health and Education Committees. Will the Secretary of State be as harsh on his colleagues in the Department for Education as he is on the social media companies when it comes to child mental health?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 Apr 2018)

Lucy Powell: On Saturday, I met a lovely young couple who had all but given up hope of ever being able to buy their own home, but thanks to an innovative and genuinely affordable housing scheme by Manchester City Council, they have just moved into their own house, right near the university. Will the Prime Minister join me in praising Manchester Labour, which, despite her Government’s planning and...

Windrush (23 Apr 2018)

Lucy Powell: Let us hope that this is a wake-up call for culture and practice in the Home Office, because as the MP with one of the biggest immigration caseloads in the region, I have to say to the Home Secretary that that culture and practice have changed markedly over the last two or three years. She is right to say that judgment is part of that problem, but in that context, can she reassure my...

Military Action Overseas: Parliamentary Approval: Anti-Semitism (17 Apr 2018)

Lucy Powell: My hon. Friend is making a powerful case. Does she agree that we need urgent legislation to shut down the closed Facebook groups that many of our party members operate in, because that is where this is getting so entrenched?

Syria: Syria (16 Apr 2018)

Lucy Powell: I thank my hon. Friend for making a very powerful case for this debate today. This week I have had several emails from Rethink Rebuild Society, which is based in Manchester, imploring Britain now to redouble its efforts to put civilians at the heart of its strategy and to make sure that the abhorrent actions of Assad that we saw a few days ago can never reoccur. I just wanted my hon. Friend...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Policing of Gangs (16 Apr 2018)

Lucy Powell: What recent assessment she has made of the effectiveness of police forces in policing gangs.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Policing of Gangs (16 Apr 2018)

Lucy Powell: I certainly am, Mr Speaker. Does the Minister agree that prevention is an absolutely key aspect of policing youth violence, and that part of that prevention is a more sophisticated approach to how we police? Young people from certain neighbourhoods —especially if they are black or ethnic minority—are too often wrongly labelled as gang criminals when, in fact, they are groups of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Prostitution (16 Apr 2018)

Lucy Powell: Still champions, Mr Speaker.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (16 Apr 2018)

Lucy Powell: If she will make a statement on her departmental responsibilities.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (16 Apr 2018)

Lucy Powell: I thank the Home Secretary for that response and put on record my gratitude for the fantastic leadership of my right hon. Friend the Member for Tottenham (Mr Lammy). However, is this not a case of too little, too late for many? Is not what has happened to the Windrush generation a broader reflection of the over-pernicious nature of the Home Office, which is going after the soft targets...

Kerslake Arena Attack Review (28 Mar 2018)

Lucy Powell: (Urgent Question): To ask the Home Secretary to make a statement on the Government’s response to the Kerslake arena attack review.

Kerslake Arena Attack Review (28 Mar 2018)

Lucy Powell: I thank the Minister for his response. We all remember the horrific events at the Manchester Arena last May and, as ever, our thoughts are with the victims and their families, and with the heroic emergency services who responded with courage and bravery. The Kerslake review, set up by Mayor Andy Burnham to ensure that lessons could be learned, was published yesterday. The desire to put the...

EU Referendum: Electoral Law (27 Mar 2018)

Lucy Powell: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Have you received any notice from the Government that they intend to make a statement on the very important Kerslake review of the response in the aftermath of the Manchester Arena attack? Although it was positive in many ways, it has raised serious questions about some national protocols and the national helpline run by the Government.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Apprenticeships (19 Mar 2018)

Lucy Powell: One of the key ways to promote apprenticeships is to maintain a broad curriculum in our schools. This was one of the key themes at the Association of School and College Leaders conference last week, where the CBI president said that children were missing out by being made to memorise facts and that the curriculum should prepare them for adult life. Does the Minister agree that the curriculum...

Universal Credit (13 Mar 2018)

Lucy Powell: Will the Secretary of State give way on that point?
