Finance (No. 2) Bill (11 Dec 2017)

Liz McInnes: If the £10 billion was spent on Crossrail for the north, it would bring revenues of £85 billion. I have talked about spending and raising money.

Finance (No. 2) Bill (11 Dec 2017)

Liz McInnes: I am grateful for the opportunity to contribute to this debate. As my hon. Friend the Member for Bootle (Peter Dowd) said, this Finance Bill is testament to an out-of-touch Government with no idea of the reality of people’s lives and no plan to improve them. In the time that I have, I want to make particular reference to the lack of any apparent willingness on the Government’s...

Brexit Negotiations (11 Dec 2017)

Liz McInnes: Will the Prime Minister provide some clarity about the progress of negotiations on the other border that we share with the EU, the border between Gibraltar and Spain?

Social Care (7 Dec 2017)

Liz McInnes: The leader of Rochdale Borough Council says that he needs about £20 million to meet growing demands on the adult care service. Given that social care was not mentioned in the Budget, will the Minister give the leader of my council some advice about where to find that £20 million?

Royal Assent: Business of the House (7 Dec 2017)

Liz McInnes: Last month, I met my constituents Margaret and Richard in Parliament at an event organised by CRY—Cardiac Risk in the Young. Sadly, the reason they were there is that they lost their son, Tom Hardman, a talented local cricketer who died of sudden cardiac death. May we have a debate in Government time on the work done by CRY and how we might prevent the 600 such deaths every year?

Public Sector Pay — [David Hanson in the Chair] (4 Dec 2017)

Liz McInnes: I want to make a point about IPSA and independent pay review bodies. NHS workers went on to Agenda for Change terms and conditions. One attraction of that was that it gave NHS staff access to a pay review body, but the Government have been overriding the recommendations of pay review bodies since 2010. The analogy just does not work: the Government have not overridden IPSA’s decisions,...

Public Sector Pay — [David Hanson in the Chair] (4 Dec 2017)

Liz McInnes: On that point, does my hon. Friend share my concern that when he was asked about funding the lifting of the pay cap for NHS workers, the Health Secretary merely said he would look at reforming terms and conditions to pay for the increase?

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

Liz McInnes: Is the Minister aware of the pioneering work being done in Greater Manchester to eradicate homelessness? Does he agree with Mayor Andy Burnham that the Government’s target of 2027 for the eradication of the problem is much too far away?

Liz McInnes: Has any member of the UK Government asked for these tweets to be taken down?

Rail Update (29 Nov 2017)

Liz McInnes: What talks has the Secretary of State had with the Northern Powerhouse Minister about the upgrading of the trans-Pennine route, and will he consider linking up the great cities of Liverpool and Newcastle, as well as Leeds, York and Manchester?

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Emigration: Zimbabwe (28 Nov 2017)

Liz McInnes: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, what recent estimate his Department has made of the size of the Zimbabwean diaspora in the UK.

Forensic Evidence: Alleged Manipulation (27 Nov 2017)

Liz McInnes: I used to work for the NHS as a clinical scientist, and every test that we did in our laboratory, including toxicology testing, was subject to rigorous internal and external quality control standards. It is my understanding that the Forensic Science Regulator has no statutory authority over private forensics laboratories. When will the Minister give the regulator statutory authority?

Universal Credit (23 Nov 2017)

Liz McInnes: Weekly paid workers in receipt of UC are set to lose their UC next month simply because there are five paydays in December. What urgent action is his Department going to take to address this ridiculous anomaly?

Women and Equalities: Supporting Women back into Work (23 Nov 2017)

Liz McInnes: Will the Minister explain what steps are being taken to ensure that older workers, including women born in the 1950s, who wish to return to work are given access to adequate training programmes in their local communities?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (21 Nov 2017)

Liz McInnes: Last Wednesday, the Prime Minister was asked about the recent elections in Somaliland, but in response she talked about the entirely different country of Somalia. Will the Foreign Secretary take the Prime Minister to one side and ask her to leave the foreign policy gaffes to him? On a more serious note, will he tell us how the Foreign Office is working to help to preserve peace and democracy...

Universal Credit Roll-Out (16 Nov 2017)

Liz McInnes: If what I read in the media is true, the Government are planning to reduce the six-week wait to four weeks, and I hope the Minister will be able to confirm that. Although the change is welcome, however, it does not go far enough. Gingerbread, the single parents’ charity, has found that about a third of single parents were already in debt before the introduction of universal credit. When...

Independent Complaints and Grievance Policy (16 Nov 2017)

Liz McInnes: Will the Leader of the House confirm that the helpline will be available not just to those who work in Parliament, but to everyone who works for an MP, such as non-pass holders, those working in constituency offices and, importantly, those who do not have access to parliamentary emails?

Business of the House (16 Nov 2017)

Liz McInnes: Will the Leader of the House inform the House when the results of the consultation on the penalties for causing death by dangerous driving will come before Parliament and be enshrined in law?

Hormone Pregnancy Tests (16 Nov 2017)

Liz McInnes: It is my understanding that in the research on fish, the researcher was reluctant to submit the findings because they had not been peer-reviewed. Is the Minister confident that all the animal studies that were considered in this review were properly and adequately peer-reviewed?
