Backbench Business: Deaf Children’s Services — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (13 Sep 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Stringer. I thank the House for making BSL interpreters available to help people to follow today’s debate. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Poplar and Limehouse (Jim Fitzpatrick) not only for securing this important debate on deaf children’s services, but for his sterling work chairing the all-party parliamentary group on...

Backbench Business: Deaf Children’s Services — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (13 Sep 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: The SEND reforms are a topic I will refer to later in my speech, but my hon. Friend leads me aptly to my next point: that when funding and support are denied in cases such as the ones we are talking about today, education is also denied. In his response, the Minister will likely refer to the funding given to the National Sensory Impairment Partnership and other bodies, but that money does not...

Women and Equalities: Topical Questions (13 Sep 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: I am pleased to say that the 220,000 member-strong Women’s Institute has joined more than 20 other national organisations, 77% of the public and more than 150 MPs across the House to support my private Member’s Bill to measure the true levels of UK hunger. Does the Government’s continued resistance to my Bill not show their indifference to rising levels of hunger on their watch?

Funeral Poverty (11 Sep 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: I thank all right hon. and hon. Members for taking part and for their thoughtful contributions. It is unusual to have members of four different parties all asking for the same thing. I thank the Minister, and I welcome his tone and his openness towards moving forward, but I am a little disappointed because it would not have been difficult to guess what I would be asking for today and it would...

Funeral Poverty (11 Sep 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: I thank the Minister for giving way and I am sorry that I did not welcome him to his new position; it is hard to keep up with things here these days, with reshuffle after reshuffle. Before he moves on to say what is coming in the future, can he update me in relation to a point I made in my speech? I asked what had happened to the discussions that I was promised two years ago about working...

Funeral Poverty (11 Sep 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: I beg to move, That this House has considered funeral poverty. It is a pleasure to see you in the Chair, Mr Streeter. While few things are certain in this world, we can be sure that almost all of us will have to go through the unbearable, gut-wrenching pain of losing a loved one. Since death does not work to a strict timetable and can often come without warning, even at the end of a long...

Funeral Poverty (11 Sep 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: One measure in my Bill was to look across the board at what local authorities and the market were doing in relation to funerals, because people are being exploited at such a sensitive time.

Funeral Poverty (11 Sep 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: It should come as no surprise to my hon. Friend that I will address all the points he raises. As I was saying, a record 8 million working adults live in poverty in the UK, with 14 million people overall living in poverty. It is little wonder that, for someone living day by day and hand to mouth, the final act of giving a deserving tribute to their loved ones is heartbreakingly out of reach....

Funeral Poverty (11 Sep 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that intervention. The process is indeed distressing and complex for many people. I think the forms that need to be filled in number 24 or 26 in total. When someone is grieving and trying to find the money to pay for a funeral for a loved one, filling in 20-odd forms and trying to have a clear head while doing so is nigh on impossible. Today the Minister may...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (11 Sep 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: Starving the NHS of finance has led to South Tyneside Hospital being forced into an unpopular merger with Sunderland Hospital. Not only is South Tyneside Hospital losing key services, but staff are at risk of being placed into a private, wholly owned subsidiary where their terms and conditions are under threat. Cuts forcing back-door privatisation are either a deliberate design of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (10 Sep 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: Legislation and guidance regarding looked-after children—for example, on such children having their own social worker—is vital to safeguarding their welfare. The recent guide for local authorities published by the Department refers to this legislation and guidance as myth, and actively urges local authorities to dispense with their statutory obligations, thereby cutting vulnerable...
