Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Children in Need (19 Mar 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: Research on the Department’s figures shows that children are 10 times more likely to be on a child protection plan if they live in a deprived area. Before the end of this Parliament, it is estimated that the figure for child poverty will reach 5 million and the funding gap in statutory services will reach £2 billion. The Minister said that strong leadership rather than extra...

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (15 Mar 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: Vital services for people suffering domestic violence, hate crime, discrimination and labour exploitation are funded by the EU rights, equality and citizenship programme. When the consultation on the UK prosperity fund eventually begins, will that programme be part of it?

Foster Care — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (14 Mar 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: I appreciate that the Minister is not in his usual role. I asked the Minister for Children and Families a question yesterday that he was unable to answer, so I hope the Minister will be able to today. How does his Department square the circle with regards to local authority funding, when every other service that has an impact on children’s social care is being cut and completely...

Foster Care — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (14 Mar 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: I am not sure whether I heard the Minister correctly. Did he say that the Department puts permanence at the heart of everything it does? Does that not deny the wishes of children who want to go into residential care, long-term foster care or other forms of care? Why is the Department riding roughshod over the views of some children?

Foster Care — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (14 Mar 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Howarth. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Sefton Central (Bill Esterson) for securing this debate. His practical experience and knowledge of fostering made for a formidable opening speech. I pay tribute to all other Members who have contributed, especially the hon. Member for Dundee West (Chris Law), who it is a pleasure to follow....

Foster Care — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (14 Mar 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: It will come as no surprise to my hon. Friend that I completely agree. I am also a keen advocate of extending Staying Put to children in residential care. It cannot be right that there is a two-tier system where some children are treated differently simply because of their placement. The recommendation is also symptomatic of the Government’s obsession with adoption as the gold standard,...

Social Workers (13 Mar 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: Will the Minister give way?

Social Workers (13 Mar 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: Will the Minister give way on that point?

Social Workers (13 Mar 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: Does the Minister share his predecessor’s view that local authority children’s services departments do not need any more money because they are not spending what they currently have appropriately? How on earth does he think it conceivable that any difference can be made, even if money is put into the system, when ongoing Government austerity is cutting every other service that...

Social Workers (13 Mar 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. I thank the hon. Member for Brentwood and Ongar (Alex Burghart) for securing this important debate ahead of next week’s World Social Work Day. There is a general misunderstanding of what social workers do. As a result, they are often treated with suspicion by not only the general public, but many politicians in this...

Social Workers (13 Mar 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: My hon. Friend is spot on: this is happening in other councils right across the country; it is not confined to his own. In fact, there is a reported funding gap of £2.5 billion by 2020, with more than 400,000 people no longer able to access social care. Children’s services are grappling with the highest numbers of children in care since the 1980s and facing a funding gap of £2...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (8 Mar 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: Last week’s Brexit paper referred to the availability of food, but made zero reference to the scandal that one in 12 British adults had gone a whole day without it. Why do the Government not care about people going hungry?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (1 Mar 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: My constituent Jim Irvine, who was active all his life, now suffers from motor neurone disease, and, like many other people, relies on his mobility scooter for independence. Scooters are currently banned from the Tyne and Wear metro. What will the Secretary of State do to remedy the situation, and will he give assurances that our promised new rolling stock will include provision for mobility...

Aid Sector: Safeguarding (20 Feb 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: I thank the Secretary of State for her statement. How quickly will the perpetrators’ crimes be recorded with all the appropriate agencies here in the UK so that they cannot go on to commit these crimes again?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (20 Feb 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: Since the Saudi-led coalition began airstrikes, more than 10,000 civilians have been killed in Yemen. Norway and Germany recently suspended their arms sales to Saudi Arabia. What will it take for the UK Government to do the same?

Statutory PHSE Education — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (6 Feb 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: Will the Minister give way?

Statutory PHSE Education — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (6 Feb 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: Will the Minister give way on that point?

Statutory PHSE Education — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (6 Feb 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Robertson. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Erith and Thamesmead (Teresa Pearce) not only for eloquently introducing this debate but for all her tireless work in trying to legislate for compulsory emergency first aid education. I also thank all right hon. and hon. Members who have made valuable contributions to this debate, not just...

Capita: Business of the House (1 Feb 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: Seventy-seven per cent. of the public, 98 MPs on both sides of the House, and more than 20 national charities back my Bill to measure food insecurity. Figures released this week show that one in eight adults has gone a whole day without food, and the UN estimate of UK food insecurity stands at a staggering 8 million people. Will the Government make a statement to explain why their position on...

Exiting the European Union: Customs Union (1 Feb 2018)

Emma Lewell-Buck: What recent assessment he has made of the effect of the UK leaving the EU customs union on the economy.
