Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (17 Jul 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: Earlier this year Health and Safety Executive figures showed that there has been a rise in work-related deaths—up to 144 between 2017 and 2018—and that that is more prevalent among those on bogus self-employment contracts. People have lost their lives; what more will it take for this Government to take some real action against the scourge of bogus self-employment?

Forced Adoption in the Uk (12 Jul 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: Can the Minister clarify that the report he has referred to was produced in 1972?

Forced Adoption in the Uk (12 Jul 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: I thank my hon. Friends the Members for Wirral South (Alison McGovern) and for Liverpool, West Derby (Stephen Twigg) for securing today’s debate, and the Backbench Business Committee for granting it. I also thank the Movement for an Adoption Apology for its tireless campaigning work. The pain and suffering that the historical practice of forced adoption caused has largely been expunged...

Defence Industry and Shipbuilding (11 Jul 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: Thank you, Mr Speaker. You will be pleased to hear that my speech is very short. Today’s debate gives the Government a really simple and straightforward choice: they can show they are seriously committed to their promised renaissance in UK shipbuilding by ensuring that the contract for the new fleet solid support ships is tendered in the UK only, or they can refuse to accept our motion,...

Defence Industry and Shipbuilding (11 Jul 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention. She is spot on. My dad spent a lot of time away—so much so that once when he came home, I did not even recognise him. In 1981, 26,000 people were employed in shipbuilding and ship repair in the north-east. Today, that figure stands at a mere 525. My dad and the lads he worked with went from building ships, to repairing them, to being...

Speech, Language and Communication Support for Children — [Ms Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (4 Jul 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: I thank the Minister for eventually giving way. He said that I had let myself down by making this issue political. I respectfully say that he is letting me and other hon. Members down. I listed a litany of failures by this Government towards children with speech, language and communication needs, and not once—

Speech, Language and Communication Support for Children — [Ms Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (4 Jul 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: Sorry. Not once has the Minister responded with anything practical. All he says is, “In the future we will”. What about now? This is urgent.

Speech, Language and Communication Support for Children — [Ms Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (4 Jul 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Dorries. I thank the hon. Member for Taunton Deane (Rebecca Pow) for securing today’s debate, 10 years on from the Bercow report, on this important topic. I pay tribute to Mr Speaker, I CAN and the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists for their groundbreaking work in this area, and to all hon. Members who have spoken...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (26 Jun 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: The UN recently reported that Saudi-led coalition air strikes are responsible for more than 60% of verified civilian casualties in Yemen. Does the Secretary of State feel that the UK’s continued arms sales to Saudi Arabia are helping to quell or intensify the conflict?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Social Work Profession (25 Jun 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: The Department’s own figures show a gap of over 10,000 in the overall children’s social care workforce. Unison analysis shows that children’s services have experienced a funding shortfall of £600 million, with more cuts to come. Will the Secretary of State explain why he is happy to see hundreds of millions of pounds cut from vulnerable children, yet he is outsourcing...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (7 Jun 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: The Department’s own family food survey found that even when poorer households buy cheaper food, they still spend a higher proportion of their income on it than average households, because of low wages. Does the Secretary of State still stand by his patronising comments that poorer people find “solace” in eating cheap junk food?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (5 Jun 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: Will the Secretary of State clarify whether, under the Department’s vision for secure schools, Ministers will close existing penal facilities, or is this yet another way of incarcerating our children?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (23 May 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: Despite a groundswell of opposition from public, staff and clinicians, this Government are actively supporting the removal of vital services from South Tyneside Hospital. Will the Prime Minister tell the 149,000 people who rely on our hospital why?

National Funding Formula: Social Mobility — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (22 May 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: I have been following the Minister’s remarks on overall funding. Does he seriously think that what the Government are now implementing makes up for the £2.7 billion lost since 2015 in the first cuts to school budgets in a generation and for all the neglect since 2010?

National Funding Formula: Social Mobility — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (22 May 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: Will the Minister give way?

National Funding Formula: Social Mobility — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (22 May 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: The Minister is talking about fairness and equity in the system, but what does he say to a school in the north-east that, according to the National Education Union, is set to lose £8,000 per pupil? How is that fair?

National Funding Formula: Social Mobility — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (22 May 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: I was not going to intervene again, but the Minister mentioned my area, and I will not take any lessons from him about what is happening to schools on my patch. Teachers come to see me on a regular basis saying that they are at breaking point because the cuts are damaging their ability to continue. Some schools are saying that they will have to go down to teaching just four days a week. I am...
