Autism (29 Mar 2018)

Angela Crawley: It is a pleasure to speak in this debate on a condition that affects more than 700,000 people in the UK but that is often misunderstood. I welcome World Autism Awareness Week and the opportunity to have this debate in the Chamber. I thank all the contributors, and I will acknowledge each in turn, but I particularly thank the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon), who rightly outlined that...

Autism (29 Mar 2018)

Angela Crawley: I was just about to champion the right hon. Lady and celebrate her championing of those with autism and her work with the APPG. Lastly, the hon. Member for Berwick-upon-Tweed (Mrs Trevelyan), in one of today’s most valuable contributions, spoke of her son’s experience. As we have heard, the National Autistic Society estimates that 16% of working-age people with autism are in...

Women and Equalities: Universal Credit (29 Mar 2018)

Angela Crawley: The Government claim that their universal credit alternative payment regime allows partners to apply for split payments in exceptional circumstances. However, few women are aware of this option, and 85% of domestic abuse survivors who contacted Women’s Aid have said that applying for split payments would anger their partners. Does the Minister agree with me that this should be...

Bills Presented: Vote 100 and International Women’s Day (8 Mar 2018)

Angela Crawley: It is a pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for Basingstoke (Mrs Miller). She is of course the Chair of the Women and Equalities Committee—the first of its kind—on which I have had the honour of serving for the past almost three years. It is a great honour that we have the whole afternoon to debate International Women’s Day. It is also an honour to follow the hon....

Misogyny as a Hate Crime — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (7 Mar 2018)

Angela Crawley: Will the Minister give way?

Women and Equalities: Topical Questions (22 Feb 2018)

Angela Crawley: I welcome the draft Domestic Violence and Abuse Bill. As well as looking at new initiatives, I hope that it will consider the impact of Government policy on domestic violence. Will the Minister give a commitment that the child maintenance reform will include the abolition of the 4% tax on survivors of domestic violence? Will she ensure that that is included in the draft Bill?

Prisoners: Outdoors Endurance Activities: People with Autism: Public Building Access (31 Jan 2018)

Angela Crawley: It is a pleasure, Mr Betts, to serve under your chairship. I am grateful to have been able to contribute this week to not one, but two debates on autism. It is great that the hon. Member for Bristol West (Thangam Debbonaire) was able to secure a debate on this important subject, and it is right that this House considers it. Our understanding of autism has obviously changed greatly over the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (31 Jan 2018)

Angela Crawley: The Prime Minister wants to bring forward legislation to tackle domestic violence and abuse, but her Government are currently taxing the same survivors for using the Child Maintenance Service. For survivors of domestic abuse, using the collect and pay service is not a matter of choice; it is a matter of safety. Will the right hon. Gentleman urge the Prime Minister to commit to using...

Backbench Business: Criminal Justice System: Adults with Autism — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (30 Jan 2018)

Angela Crawley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairship, Sir Edward. I thank the hon. Member for Cardiff West (Kevin Brennan) for securing this debate and I thank the Members who have brought to the attention of the House the issues that their constituents with autism face within the criminal justice system. Autism covers a wide and variable spectrum, so it is important not to over-generalise. The...

Backbench Business: Marriage in Government Policy — [Mr Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (30 Jan 2018)

Angela Crawley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairship, Mr Rosindell. I congratulate the hon. Member for St Ives (Derek Thomas) on securing this debate and on his efforts to ensure that Marriage Week is celebrated in Parliament. Marriage is a changing institution, and within our lifetimes it has changed dramatically. In fact, when the institution of marriage was originally created, the average life...

Backbench Business: Marriage in Government Policy — [Mr Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (30 Jan 2018)

Angela Crawley: No, I will continue. Finally, many people’s marriages and relationships end. When they do, it is Government’s responsibility to create policy to support and protect those people, not to penalise them, especially not vulnerable parents with children to raise. If tackling child poverty is this Government’s aim, using this debate to lecture others on the sanctity of marriage is...

Refugees and Human Rights (24 Jan 2018)

Angela Crawley: It is of course a pleasure to speak in this debate. The global refugee crisis is one of the world’s greatest challenges. The unthinkably large number of displaced people across the globe—approximately 65 million were recorded in 2016, and I imagine that the figure has only increased—is daunting and obscures the human story behind each man, woman and child who has had to...

Women and Equalities: Pregnancy and Maternity Discrimination Tribunals (11 Jan 2018)

Angela Crawley: I welcome the new Women and Equalities Minister to her place and pay tribute to the right hon. Member for Putney (Justine Greening) for her dedication to the role. In January last year, the Women and Equalities Committee joined the Justice Committee in calling for an extension of the deadline from three to six months. In response, the Government said that they would keep the time limit for...

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...
