Unauthorised Encampments — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (12 Oct 2017)

Craig Tracey: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Davies. I echo many of the points raised by colleagues and recognise many of their experiences. We must remember that we are discussing unauthorised and illegal encampments. Since being elected in 2015, I have witnessed illegal encampments on public land, land belonging to local schools, clubs and sports clubs and private land, forcing...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (10 Oct 2017)

Craig Tracey: This Friday marks Secondary Breast Cancer Awareness Day. In 2015, the Government recognised that data collection for this type of cancer was not good enough. However, research by Breast Cancer Care shows that less than a third of trusts collect the number of people diagnosed with secondary breast cancer. Will the Minister confirm what actions the Government are taking to ensure that all...

Parliamentary Candidates: Barriers for Women (13 Sep 2017)

Craig Tracey: My hon. Friend is making a great case on an issue that I know she is very passionate about; I have worked with her on it before. I am the chair of the all-party group on women and enterprise, and it is a big, big privilege for me to work with a really inspirational group of female entrepreneurs from across a range of businesses. Interestingly, however, virtually none of them see politics as a...

Parliamentary Candidates: Barriers for Women (13 Sep 2017)

Craig Tracey: My hon. Friend is making a powerful case. Does she agree that having more women in Parliament is not simply the right thing to do? Diverse company boards are more successful on every single measure, so it stands to reason that we will get even better results from a diverse Parliament.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

Craig Tracey: I echo many of the sentiments expressed by the hon. and right hon. Members who support the Bill, and I support many of the points that they have made. I voted to leave the EU, as did 67% of voters in North Warwickshire and Bedworth. During the campaign, it became quite clear that there was disillusionment with what the EU had become. The message I got loud and clear from constituents on the...

International Day of Democracy: HS2: Phase 2b Route (Manchester and Leeds) (6 Sep 2017)

Craig Tracey: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing the debate. I am all too familiar with this issue, having the constituency that is arguably the most affected by HS2. Does she agree that HS2 should give more consideration to bored tunnels? They have been requested by constituents in the Kingsbury and Polesworth action groups in my constituency and would help to minimise the impact on residents and...

Coventry City of Culture — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (5 Sep 2017)

Craig Tracey: The hon. Gentleman is making a brilliant case, which I support, for Coventry being the city of culture. Does he agree that the bid gives an opportunity to not just Coventry but the wider local area to show what it is all about, including places such as Bedworth and Keresley in my constituency?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (18 Jul 2017)

Craig Tracey: Does my right hon. Friend agree that lowering corporation tax to 19% has incentivised business investment in North Warwickshire and Bedworth by companies such as Aldi, which has its headquarters there, and throughout the UK?

Business of the House (13 Jul 2017)

Craig Tracey: The exploitation of leasehold agreements by house builders and management companies is a national scandal that is leaving homeowners in my constituency in financial difficulty. May we have an urgent debate to explore an industry-wide solution to address the actions of such companies across the board?

Taylor Review: Working Practices (11 Jul 2017)

Craig Tracey: I, too, welcome the report. Does my hon. Friend agree that flexibility in the labour market benefits workers and employers equally?

Balancing the Public Finances — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (11 Jul 2017)

Craig Tracey: I, too, congratulate my right hon. Friend on securing this debate. Will he join me in welcoming the fact that the reduction in corporation tax to 19% has brought in the highest yields ever, bringing another £11 billion into the economy? Does he have any thoughts on what increasing the rate to, say, 26% would have on jobs and, importantly, our ability to reduce the deficit?

Road Infrastructure — [Mrs Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (5 Jul 2017)

Craig Tracey: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this debate. On housing, would he agree that particular consideration needs to be given to key arterial routes that link major motorways, such as the A5 in my constituency, which connects the M69, M1 and M42? It is already under huge pressure, and will be even more so due to proposed housing and the development of High Speed 2.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (25 Apr 2017)

Craig Tracey: Following the important work done by the parents of my constituent Sean Morley, who was tragically killed in a hit-and-run incident in Bedworth, and the representations that I have made to the Secretary of State, will she confirm whether she intends to see through the progress that has been made towards much tougher sentences for dangerous drivers in the next Parliament, should the...

Long-term Health Problems and Work Outcomes — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (18 Apr 2017)

Craig Tracey: I beg to move, That this House has considered the role of employers in improving work outcomes for people with long-term health problems. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship on this very interesting day, Mr Hollobone. The Prime Minister has promised that her Government “will do everything we can to help anybody, whatever your background, to go as far as your talents will...

Long-term Health Problems and Work Outcomes — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (18 Apr 2017)

Craig Tracey: The hon. Gentleman is right, and I will touch on tax incentives later. There are lots of opportunities there. The Green Paper is a good and innovative start in looking at how we can move things forward. The earlier those open supportive conversations between employers and employees happen, the more effective the support will be. Well-managed employees can focus on their recovery and are more...

Long-term Health Problems and Work Outcomes — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (18 Apr 2017)

Craig Tracey: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention. I know she speaks from experience. She is a few steps ahead, mind-reading my speech. I will come to the valid point she makes, but I definitely agree with her comments. Obviously such conditions can have many knock-on effects for families. When someone gives up work for health reasons, their partner will often cut back or stop working to become...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Industrial Strategy: West Midlands (14 Mar 2017)

Craig Tracey: What role does my right hon. Friend see the self-employed, particularly those in my constituency, playing as the industrial strategy develops?

Business of the House (9 Mar 2017)

Craig Tracey: Following the point raised by my hon. Friend the Member for Cannock Chase (Amanda Milling), I wish to highlight the huge increase in fly-tipping across North Warwickshire and Bedworth in recent months. A recent episode near the village of Austrey led to an entire road being blocked by the rubbish deposited on it. The clear-up costs for just one council are estimated at £650,000, so may...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (6 Mar 2017)

Craig Tracey: What steps are the Government taking to crack down on cyber-terrorism, given that business is increasingly being done online and in the light of the recent announcement from the Department for Culture, Media and Sport of a new digital strategy to encourage even more businesses to have the skills and confidence they need to make the most of digital technology?
