Backbench Business: Santander Closures and Local Communities — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (14 Feb 2019)

Liz McInnes: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Davies. I thank the Backbench Business Committee and the hon. Member for Glasgow East (David Linden) for securing this important and very relevant debate. In my constituency of Heywood and Middleton, we have sadly been through all this before. The Heywood branch of Santander was closed in 2017 in a similar exercise to the one that we are...

Business of the House (14 Feb 2019)

Liz McInnes: Sit down! [Laughter.]

Business of the House (14 Feb 2019)

Liz McInnes: As business looks quite light next week, can legislation be brought to the House regarding tougher sentences for causing death by dangerous driving, as promised by this Government in October 2017?

Non-surgical Cosmetic Procedures: Regulation (12 Feb 2019)

Liz McInnes: I also wanted to raise the issue of dysmorphia, which strays into the area of mental health issues. I am concerned that we seem to be accepting that it is okay for people to want to change their appearance. The issue of body dysmorphia illustrates that people may be asking for these procedures for the wrong reasons, and I question whether somebody on the high street who is not a qualified...

Non-surgical Cosmetic Procedures: Regulation (12 Feb 2019)

Liz McInnes: I thank the hon. Gentleman for giving way again. Regarding the training that those administering these sorts of treatments need, I recently spoke to a father whose 19-year-old daughter had received Botox injections, to which she had suffered a severe allergic reaction. This is the realm of medical practice. Anyone administering Botox should be aware of the possibility of those receiving it...

Legislation Against Female Genital Mutilation (11 Feb 2019)

Liz McInnes: From talking to colleagues across the House, I know that we are all upset by the actions of the hon. Member for Christchurch (Sir Christopher Chope), so I am pleased that the Minister intends to bring legislation before the House. I understand that business will be quite light next week, so I wonder whether she might take the opportunity to bring a Bill to the House then.

Education Committee: Closure of Santander Banks (7 Feb 2019)

Liz McInnes: I am grateful to the Minister for giving way. He paints a rosy picture of what Santander is doing to help vulnerable customers, but the fact is that it told my constituents in Middleton that they could bank at Middleton post office, which is earmarked for closure and will be moving into a branch of WHSmith, so in my constituency it most certainly is not in touch with what is going on in the...

Education Committee: Closure of Santander Banks (7 Feb 2019)

Liz McInnes: I am grateful to the hon. Lady for securing this important debate. It has been announced that the Santander branch in Middleton in my constituency will close in July and that customers can use the Middleton post office, but the Middleton post office is earmarked for closure as well. I am grateful to her for bringing up the effect this is having on our town centres, which are dying.

Venezuela (7 Feb 2019)

Liz McInnes: I thank the Minister for advance sight of his statement. I hope that the Minister will today rule out the prospect of military intervention or some other form of outside interference, whether from the United States or anyone else, in Venezuela. I agree with him that the economic and humanitarian crisis in Venezuela is all the more unacceptable because it has been so utterly avoidable. The...

International Trade: British Businesses Investing Overseas (7 Feb 2019)

Liz McInnes: What support his Department provides to British businesses investing overseas.

International Trade: British Businesses Investing Overseas (7 Feb 2019)

Liz McInnes: I thank the Minister for that answer, but people are quite rightly concerned that setting up overseas subsidiaries or acquiring foreign enterprises could lead to job losses or relocations. Will the Minister confirm the net number of jobs created in the UK as a result of his Department’s support for outward direct investment?

Women and Equalities: Workplace Equality: Flexible Working (7 Feb 2019)

Liz McInnes: What discussions she has had with the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy on improving access to flexible working to increase workplace equality.

Women and Equalities: Workplace Equality: Flexible Working (7 Feb 2019)

Liz McInnes: I thank the Minister for that answer, but the right to request flexible working is not the same as an entitlement to work flexibly. Given that so many of these requests are refused and that the Government have said that they want to encourage flexible working, will they consider placing a duty on employers to advertise jobs as flexible?

Petition - None[P002354] (5 Feb 2019)

Liz McInnes: I rise to present in the same terms a petition on behalf of our one remaining maintained nursery school in my constituency, the wonderful Sunny Brow Nursery School. It has been signed by 238 constituents. The petition of the parents, careers, staff and governors of Sunny Brow maintained nursery school in Middleton. [P002350]

Petition - Closure of ST George’S Cross Branch of the Bank of Scotland: Orkambi (4 Feb 2019)

Liz McInnes: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for giving way. He mentioned the R&D that is going on. That R&D does not exist in a vacuum; it is done on patients, with input from doctors. Does he agree that the company, no matter how much profit it might want to make, has a moral obligation to cystic fibrosis patients?

State Pension Age: Women (31 Jan 2019)

Liz McInnes: I am struck by my hon. Friend’s comment that the judicial case prevents the Government from taking any action. From my point of view, the Government have deliberately taken no action whatsoever ever since the 1950s women began complaining about state pension inequality.

State Pension Age: Women (31 Jan 2019)

Liz McInnes: Or no notice at all.

Equitable Life: Maintained Nursery Schools (31 Jan 2019)

Liz McInnes: It is a pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Erdington (Jack Dromey). Like him, I have met the headteacher of the maintained nursery school in my constituency, and she also praised the Minister for his openness and willingness to listen. I hope that the Minister takes heed of those remarks. I also thank my hon. Friend the Member for Manchester Central (Lucy Powell)...

Business of the House (31 Jan 2019)

Liz McInnes: This week we should have had a debate in Westminster Hall on the regulation of non-surgical cosmetic procedures, but sadly it was cancelled because of the illness of the hon. Member for South Leicestershire (Alberto Costa), who would have been leading the debate—I send him my best wishes for a speedy recovery. People continue to suffer adverse effects as a result of the unregulated...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: TV Licences: Over-75s (31 Jan 2019)

Liz McInnes: If he will make it his policy to maintain the provision of free TV licences for people aged 75 and over after the current scheme expires in 2020.
