Women and Equalities: BAME Women (23 Nov 2017)

Angela Crawley: The Chancellor’s £1.5 billion package for universal credit will do very little to address the disproportionate impact of previous Budgets and policies on BAME women. According to the Women’s Budget Group, BAME women will be £1,400 a year worse off. Will the Minister make representations to the Chancellor on behalf of these women?

State Pension Age (21 Nov 2017)

Angela Crawley: On a point of order, Mr Hollobone. Can I clarify something for the avoidance of doubt? A number of generalisations were made about young and old people, and who cares more or less about pensions— Sitting adjourned without Question put ( Standing Order No. 10(13)).

State Pension Age (21 Nov 2017)

Angela Crawley: On that point, will the Minister give way?

State Pension Age (21 Nov 2017)

Angela Crawley: Does my hon. Friend agree that my constituents, such as Lorraine McColl and Nancy Rea, who have campaigned relentlessly for the past two and a half years since I became an MP, have yet to hear any satisfactory response from this Government? I thank the hon. Member for Coatbridge, Chryston and Bellshill (Hugh Gaffney) for securing this debate, but how long must we continue endlessly to have...

Public Accounts Commission: Child Maintenance Service (16 Nov 2017)

Angela Crawley: It is perhaps not surprising that while Brexit dominates most political debate, issues of huge importance sometimes slip through the scrutiny of this place, and I believe that the Child Maintenance Service falls into that category. After several months of working through the formalities of this House, I am delighted finally to have the opportunity to raise my concerns and highlight in the...

Public Accounts Commission: Child Maintenance Service (16 Nov 2017)

Angela Crawley: I wholeheartedly agree my hon. Friend that such errors, so glaring and so obvious, should be addressed by the Government. The service levels offered to my constituents are often inconsistent, and CMS rules are often not followed by departmental staff. For example, requests to use the collect and pay service are often discouraged by advisers. I have previously raised the case of a constituent...

Universal Credit Roll-Out (16 Nov 2017)

Angela Crawley: I congratulate the right hon. Member for Birkenhead (Frank Field) on highlighting some of the deeply rooted problems with the accelerated roll-out of universal credit. However, it is indicative of this Government’s complete disregard that we find ourselves debating the issue again. I highlight the notable contributions of the right hon. Member for Birkenhead, my hon. Friends the...

Family Justice Reform — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (15 Nov 2017)

Angela Crawley: I congratulate the hon. Member for Fareham (Suella Fernandes) on securing the debate, and wish her well in seeking reform of the law. I shall not labour for long, because of course, as we have heard, Scotland has a distinct legal system, and I do not want to lecture or give lessons from Scotland. I simply want a sharing of best practice between the two nations, and to ensure that where legal...

Family Justice Reform — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (15 Nov 2017)

Angela Crawley: Personally, I am happy to say that I think grandparents should play an active role in their grandchildren’s lives. There is room, in the next review period, to consider the role of grandparents, but as I sit in this place I have no locus in the matter and my opinions are frankly irrelevant. However, I agree that children and their grandparents should be able to have a relationship, and...

Temporary Accommodation (7 Nov 2017)

Angela Crawley: I thank the hon. Member for Mitcham and Morden (Siobhain McDonagh) for bringing forward this debate and for her heartfelt and passionate contribution. None of us could fail to be moved by her call for change for the families here today and the many more affected by the scourge of homelessness and temporary accommodation. I also recognise the contributions of the hon. Members for Harrow East...

Temporary Accommodation (7 Nov 2017)

Angela Crawley: Absolutely. I thank my hon. Friend for his comments and echo his sentiments. My constituency in south Lanarkshire witnessed the roll-out of universal credit some years ago. Scotland is not unused to the idea of a Government and this particular governing party trialling their catastrophic programmes in Scotland. The hon. Member for Redditch kindly informed us that it happened to her...

Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Angela Crawley: Does the hon. Gentleman remember the former Secretary of State, the right hon. Member for Chingford and Woodford Green (Mr Duncan Smith), saying that he could afford to live on benefits of however much per week? Does the hon. Gentleman reckon that anyone on the Government Benches would be able to live on thin air for the next six to 12 weeks while universal credit is rolled out?

Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Angela Crawley: My South Lanarkshire constituency was one of the first in Scotland to see the roll-out of universal credit, and I have witnessed my constituents relying on food banks as they wait up to 12 weeks for their universal credit payment. Does my hon. Friend agree that the policy is clearly not working in practice? Will she invite the Minister to visit my constituency and see how his policy is...

Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Angela Crawley: rose—

Higher Education (England) Regulations (13 Sep 2017)

Angela Crawley: Does my hon. Friend agree that many of us on the SNP Benches would not even be here today were it not for the SNP’s policy of scrapping tuition fees? Does she also agree that the Government could learn some lessons from Scotland?

Parliamentary Candidates: Barriers for Women (13 Sep 2017)

Angela Crawley: I want to highlight something that I came across today. This is not a party political point, but it is another example. It came to my attention that one of our newly elected Members of Parliament, the hon. Member for Sheffield, Hallam (Jared O'Mara), personally wrote a song, the title of which is, “I wish I were a misogynist, I’d smash her in the face”. Attitudes like that...

Parliamentary Candidates: Barriers for Women (13 Sep 2017)

Angela Crawley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Roger. I am grateful to the hon. Member for Eastleigh (Mims Davies) for calling this debate. While we wrangle over Brexit and other serious matters, we often forget to highlight and address the systemic and obvious barriers in society. I came to this place because I was inspired to create change and I wanted to tackle the everyday...

Parliamentary Candidates: Barriers for Women (13 Sep 2017)

Angela Crawley: I agree that that Member’s point may have been misconstrued, but the point is this: we can stand here in our privileged position and talk all day and all night, but there are not enough women in this House. We do not fully represent society. Women have to be able to afford to get here, have childcare, sit in hustings where men ask them, “What are you going to do about your...

Parliamentary Candidates: Barriers for Women (13 Sep 2017)

Angela Crawley: I wholeheartedly agree. I am sure that everyone agrees that this place has a negative impact on many people’s family life and work-life balance. I do not intend to cry and play a tiny fiddle on behalf of MPs, but if we cannot get it right here, how do we expect anyone to get it right elsewhere? Whether the lack of women is due to family, childcare, caring responsibilities, society, the...
