Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Topical Questions (17 Jan 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: Recognising that Yemen is gripped by the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, Norway recently suspended its arms sales to Saudi Arabia. Why won’t the UK?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Employment (16 Jan 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: Here is a reality check for the Minister. Limited well-paid jobs and record levels of in-work poverty coupled with this Government’s unflinching assault on the welfare safety net have contributed to the United Nations estimating that 8 million households in the UK are food insecure. My cost-neutral household Food Security Bill will robustly measure these factors and lead to policy...

Pension Equality for Women: South Tyneside Hospital (14 Dec 2017)

Emma Lewell-Buck: The Minister says that both hospitals are working together to create safe healthcare for both populations. However, how does shutting down a maternity unit and a special care baby unit with hardly any notice at all help to create that environment? Surely they are failing the task they have been handed.

Pension Equality for Women: South Tyneside Hospital (14 Dec 2017)

Emma Lewell-Buck: I thank the Minister for giving way again, but I am really disappointed. I can see that he has the official lines from the trust and the CCG, but did he not listen to what I said? Regional groups made this decision, not local groups. The unit is now at the full staff complement at which it has been historically. In short, there is no staffing problem there right now. Midwives are sitting...

Pension Equality for Women: South Tyneside Hospital (14 Dec 2017)

Emma Lewell-Buck: The Minister’s analysis of the Save South Tyneside Hospital campaign is incorrect. We want safe, decent healthcare for people in South Tyneside. We are campaigning for equitable, safe healthcare.

Pension Equality for Women: South Tyneside Hospital (14 Dec 2017)

Emma Lewell-Buck: I am grateful for having been granted this timely and important Adjournment debate. I know that this Government, despite all their warm words and platitudes, do not really care for our NHS. The very principle and essence of it simply does not sit well with their ideologically driven privatisation agenda. We should judge this Government’s commitment to our NHS by their actions. The...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Children in Care (11 Dec 2017)

Emma Lewell-Buck: The Minister is presiding over a rise in care numbers and a shortage of foster carers. More than 70% of children’s homes are now run for profit. These providers are warning of imminent closures if his Government do not get their act together and tackle the issue of backdated sleep-in shift payments, which have led to debts of up to £2 million for some homes. Where on earth does the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Youth Custody: Physical Restraint (5 Dec 2017)

Emma Lewell-Buck: What recent assessment he has made of the suitability of physical restraint techniques used on children in youth custody.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Youth Custody: Physical Restraint (5 Dec 2017)

Emma Lewell-Buck: In September, I asked why the Ministry of Justice’s approved methods for restraining children in young offender institutions and secure training centres can actually kill children or leave them disabled. I have since received a letter from the Minister stating that pain-inducing restraint techniques may be necessary in limited circumstances. The Department of Health launched a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Homelessness and Rough Sleeping (4 Dec 2017)

Emma Lewell-Buck: What assessment he has made of trends in the number of homeless people sleeping rough between 2010 and 2016.

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Homelessness and Rough Sleeping (4 Dec 2017)

Emma Lewell-Buck: I thank the Secretary of State for his answer, even though he did not answer my question. The reality is that since 2010 rough sleeping has risen by 134%. Worse still, this Government have encouraged local authorities to use public place protection orders to criminalise and fine rough sleepers when they accept food or money from kind strangers. When on earth is he going to do to curb this?

Food Insecurity (29 Nov 2017)

Emma Lewell-Buck: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to require the Government to monitor and report on food insecurity; to make provision for official statistics on food insecurity; and for connected purposes. People are going hungry, and with each passing day of this terrible excuse for a Government, more and more are falling into poverty with little chance of escape. There are no second...

Anti-bullying Week — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (23 Nov 2017)

Emma Lewell-Buck: It is always a pleasure to see you in the Chair, Ms Buck. I congratulate the hon. Member for Paisley and Renfrewshire North (Gavin Newlands) on securing this debate, and I thank all hon. Members and hon. Friends who have spoken so passionately here in Westminster Hall today. It was a particular pleasure to hear my hon. Friend the Member for Ogmore (Chris Elmore), whose powerful speech will...

Anti-bullying Week — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (23 Nov 2017)

Emma Lewell-Buck: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention. The reality is that if austerity measures and cuts continue, we will fail all our children. Those of our children who suffer from depression, low self-esteem, anxiety and self-harm as a result of bullying should be assured that when they need professional help it is available. However, this Government’s total hash of child and adolescent...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Sep 2017)

Emma Lewell-Buck: As the Prime Minister was visiting survivors of the Manchester terror attack, families who were heartbroken to have lost their children were also in the vicinity, but the Prime Minister did not visit them. Chloe Rutherford and Liam Curry from South Shields tragically lost their lives, and their parents feel ignored by the Prime Minister. I wrote to her seven weeks ago with their concerns, but...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: PE and Sport Premium (11 Sep 2017)

Emma Lewell-Buck: The Government’s plans to address childhood inactivity should include healthy pupils capital funding. In February, the Secretary of State was clear that the amount schools would receive would not fall below £415 million, but just last week the Minister admitted that more than £300 million has been cut from that very programme, in a desperate attempt to prop up a falling...

Business of the House (7 Sep 2017)

Emma Lewell-Buck: Months ago, a report commissioned by the Government and only released after freedom of information requests found that the Ministry of Justice’s own approved methods of restraining children in young offender institutions and secure training centres can actually kill children or leave them disabled. Will the leader of the House ask her colleagues in the Ministry of Justice to make a...

Taylor Review: Working Practices (11 Jul 2017)

Emma Lewell-Buck: Over 1 million workers are being exploited by sham umbrella companies and bogus self-employment. Changes to tax policy are what is needed to tackle that, but the Government prohibited Matthew Taylor from making any firm recommendations on changing tax policy, so how seriously can we take the Minister’s comments today, and when on earth are the Government going to eventually address...
