Knife Crime (6 Sep 2017)

Steve Reed: The Government have directly reduced funding for youth offending services and indirectly reduced funding for early intervention and family support through the cuts delivered to local government. This has become so severe that those working in youth offending services can no longer devote the time necessary to prevent young offenders from reoffending, so we are still seeing reoffending at...

Knife Crime (6 Sep 2017)

Steve Reed: I echo the words of congratulation to my hon. Friend on securing this important debate. To what extent does she believe that the severe cuts to council services—they have led to cuts in services such as crime prevention, early intervention and family support—and the severe reductions in neighbourhood policing have contributed to Croydon having the second highest level of knife...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: End-of-life Care (4 Jul 2017)

Steve Reed: Croydon’s NHS, including end-of-life care, has been funded below the London average every year since the Conservatives first came into government. That is leading to the closure of services in Croydon that are available elsewhere, and to longer waiting times for GPs or the A&E in Croydon. When will Croydon’s funding be brought up to the London average?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: School Funding Formula (20 Mar 2017)

Steve Reed: How will the new national funding formula help students at Paxton Primary Academy in Thornton Heath, which is now in its third year in portakabins piled up in the back yard of a rugby club? Because work still has not started on its permanent school, it is now looking at its fourth, and possibly even fifth, year in portakabins. It is unacceptable that this should continue. Will the Minister...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Leaving the EU: Charities and Voluntary Sector (16 Mar 2017)

Steve Reed: The Brexit Secretary tells us that he has done no work to understand the implications for the country of a no-deal Brexit. What work has the Minister done to understand the implications of a no-deal Brexit for charities, not just in terms of funding but in terms of the sector’s extremely diverse workforce?

National Citizen Service Bill [Lords]: National Citizen Service Trust (15 Mar 2017)

Steve Reed: I will start by returning the compliments paid to me by the Minister. I and my colleagues on the Opposition Front Bench are grateful to him for the consensual way in which he has dealt with the Bill. That is important to the future of the National Citizen Service, and to the people from all parties and none who have devoted a considerable amount of time to getting the organisation off the...

National Citizen Service Bill [Lords]: National Citizen Service Trust (15 Mar 2017)

Steve Reed: I thank the Minister for those assurances. It is important to put our concerns on the record following the PAC report. I fully understand that he will need some time to look at the report in detail to provide the reassurances that the House and the public will be looking for following its publication. The organisation has declared its intention to reduce spending per participant by about...

National Citizen Service Bill [Lords]: National Citizen Service Trust (15 Mar 2017)

Steve Reed: Absolutely. It is important that the Government identify and try to remove possible barriers to involvement in full-time volunteering. We hope that the review led by Steve Holliday will produce some proposals. Let me reassure the House that the points that my colleagues and I have raised are intended to help the NCS to develop and improve. We want it to succeed. We believe in the young people...

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (9 Mar 2017)

Steve Reed: We are here to consider the Budget that the Government have put forward for the country. I want to speak about its impact on my constituents. Like the rest of the country, Croydon is experiencing a social care crisis. Older and disabled people regularly visit my office to say they cannot get home care and that they do not get adequate support when they leave hospital. Local charities are...

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (9 Mar 2017)

Steve Reed: Perhaps Conservative Members, including the hon. Gentleman himself, should have thought about that before they stood for election on a manifesto that said absolutely categorically that there would be “no increases in...National Insurance contributions”. It does nothing for trust in politics when politicians say one thing to persuade people to vote for them but then, once they are...

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (9 Mar 2017)

Steve Reed: That is absolutely shocking, but it reflects what we are seeing in our constituencies and what our constituents are telling us. Once upon a time in this country, there was a covenant between people and Government. People gave their consent to the system in return for a fair reward for the work they put in. There was an understanding that if people worked hard, they would do well. They could...

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (9 Mar 2017)

Steve Reed: This Government have absolutely divided the country. They have divided different parts of the country and communities from each other. I will give a statistic that shows how they have done it. Since they came to power in 2010, the 10 poorest councils in the country have experienced cuts 17 times bigger than those faced by the 10 richest. If that is not divisive, I do not know what is. This is...

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (9 Mar 2017)

Steve Reed: We do not need to hear anything about tax cuts from Conservative Members, given that they have just broken their solemn electoral promise not to raise taxes if elected back into government. Only yesterday we saw the Chancellor standing at the Dispatch Box proposing to raise taxes. Conservative Members will have to vote on that, and it will be very interesting to see how many follow it through...

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (9 Mar 2017)

Steve Reed: The Secretary of State is lecturing the House on how finance works, but we would like to know more about how it works in his Department. He has denied offering Surrey County Council a sweetheart deal, but the BBC has now published a letter from officials in the Department for Communities and Local Government which shows that they did, in fact, offer Surrey more cash in a unique deal. Did the...

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (9 Mar 2017)

Steve Reed: Will the Secretary of State give way?

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (9 Mar 2017)

Steve Reed: Will the Secretary of State give way, on that point?

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (9 Mar 2017)

Steve Reed: I am grateful, because social care was the subject of the correspondence with Surrey County Council. When the Secretary of State issued his denial, was he aware that his own director of local government finance, Matthew Style, had sent a letter to the council offering it a unique financial deal?

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (9 Mar 2017)

Steve Reed: Does my right hon. Friend agree with the Conservative Croydon councillor, James Thompson, who tweets: “Disgusted by this so-called Conservative government hitting the self-employed”.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (1 Mar 2017)

Steve Reed: I add my condolences to those already expressed about the former Father of the House, and I welcome my new hon. Friend the Member for Stoke-on-Trent Central (Gareth Snell) to his place.
