Opposition Day — [8th allotted day]: Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Welfare Reform (Disabled People) (28 Oct 2014)

Liz McInnes: Thank you, Mr Speaker, for allowing me to make my maiden speech during this debate. I start by paying tribute to my predecessor, Jim Dobbin, whose sad death brought about the recent by-election in my Heywood and Middleton constituency. Jim was a much loved and respected Member of Parliament. He was held in high regard by his constituents and, I would hope, by every Member in this House. It is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Child Abuse Inquiry (3 Nov 2014)

Liz McInnes: It is right that the emphasis should be on support for survivors, but can the Home Secretary give more detail about the survivors liaison group, how it will be set up and, more importantly for me, whether there will be representation from my constituency, Heywood and Middleton?

Opposition Day — [9th Allotted Day]: Income Tax (5 Nov 2014)

Liz McInnes: I will be brief. Like my hon. Friend the Member for Stretford and Urmston (Kate Green), I doubt that many of my constituents would find themselves in the position of having to pay a 50p tax rate. It is right that we should be discussing reversing this Government’s tax cut for millionaires. The Government’s decision to cut the 50p tax rate handed a £3 billion tax cut to the richest 1% in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (10 Nov 2014)

Liz McInnes: Responding to a Centrepoint report quoted in The Independent last week, the homelessness Minister said that the number of people sleeping rough was falling dramatically and claimed that it was a result of the Government’s action. Given that his Department’s own figures show that the level of rough sleeping has risen every year under this Government and is up 37% since 2010, will he repeat...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Bill — [1st Allocated Day] (18 Nov 2014)

Liz McInnes: Like the hon. Member for South East Cornwall (Sheryll Murray), I am seeking clarification on small family brewers. I, too, am confused by the effect of the legislation on J.W. Lees brewery in my constituency, which has fewer than 500 pubs but has a strong retail arm. I am concerned—as is the brewery, which asked me to raise the issue during the debate—as to the effect it will have on a...

Business of the House (20 Nov 2014)

Liz McInnes: In Heywood, 123 people are employed by Capita to handle the distribution and filing of Department for Work and Pensions claimants’ files. Capita has refused to pay those staff a living wage, and even pointed to other examples of employers in the area that pay poverty wages to justify that decision. May we have a statement, or even a debate, on the Government’s attitude to the payment of...

International Development and Disability (26 Nov 2014)

Liz McInnes: This is almost a maiden speech again. People with disabilities make up one of the most marginalised and disadvantaged groups within society throughout the world. Sightsavers estimates that one in five of the world’s poorest people are disabled and that 80% of those people live in developing countries. They are routinely denied their most basic human rights; they are cut off and unable to...

International Development and Disability (26 Nov 2014)

Liz McInnes: I thank the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon) for his intervention. As the World Health Organisation notes, the global estimate for disability is on the rise because of the ageing population and the rapid spread of chronic diseases, as well as improvements in the methodologies used to measure disability. Disability therefore requires urgent consideration and action from policy makers...
