Homelessness among Refugees — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (17 Jul 2018)

Angela Crawley: Thank you, Sir Edward, for calling me to speak. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship. I congratulate the hon. Member for Stretford and Urmston (Kate Green) on securing this debate. As we have already heard, those who have been granted refugee status are given 28 days to receive the required identity documentation, to secure a source of income and to find somewhere to live before...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018: Legislative Consent (11 Jul 2018)

Angela Crawley: What recent discussions he has had with the (a) Scottish Government and (b) Prime Minister on the Scottish Parliament’s decision not to grant a legislative consent motion for the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018: Legislative Consent (11 Jul 2018)

Angela Crawley: After repeated exclusion from Brexit discussions, the Secretary of State was finally allowed a place at the table at Chequers last week. How did he use that time to speak up for Scotland? What representations did he make on behalf of the Scottish Parliament, given the majority vote to withhold legislative consent?

Commercial Sexual Exploitation — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (4 Jul 2018)

Angela Crawley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Paisley. I congratulate the hon. Members for Rotherham (Sarah Champion) and for Luton South (Mr Shuker) on securing the important debate. They have both campaigned relentlessly on this issue. It is unfortunate that it is happening in Westminster Hall, because it should be in the main Chamber. Too often such important discussions happen...

The Minister for Women and Equalities Was Asked: Universal Credit: Women in Abusive Relationships (28 Jun 2018)

Angela Crawley: The DWP has continued to say that split payments are available, but does the Minister agree that that may put women at risk of further abuse in relationships and may prevent them from asking for this option?

Backbench Business: Mortgage Interest — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (19 Jun 2018)

Angela Crawley: Does the Minister accept, though, that six weeks is in real terms quite a short time in which to get the relevant and necessary financial advice? Relying on services such as Citizens Advice—voluntary, third sector services that are often financially strapped—to give people the necessary financial advice about their future seems a bit irresponsible on the Government’s part.

Backbench Business: Mortgage Interest — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (19 Jun 2018)

Angela Crawley: Does the Minister accept that through housing benefit most people forced into the private rented sector are paying someone else’s mortgage? Is it not a tad hypocritical to say that someone in hardship or who will not otherwise be able to work again should not have their mortgage paid when those in the private sector, often renting from private landlords, are paying mortgages through...

Backbench Business: Mortgage Interest — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (19 Jun 2018)

Angela Crawley: I beg to move, That this House has considered support for mortgage interest. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairship, Mr Hollobone. When people develop disability during their working life, it can disrupt those lives in profound ways, often making it impossible for them to work. Disability will not always take a person’s life plans into account, and the Government have a...

Backbench Business: Mortgage Interest — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (19 Jun 2018)

Angela Crawley: The Government’s decision to have Serco institute this policy seems rather absurd given its recent bad press. Again, I must ask the Government to pause and reconsider this ill-designed policy change, and make sure that we do not penalise homeowners for changes to their circumstances that are beyond their control. Will the Government consider that?

Gaza: Un Human Rights Council Vote: Tenant Fees Bill (21 May 2018)

Angela Crawley: I am delighted to speak in the debate. Let me say at the outset that I welcome any moves by the Government to put money back into renters’ pockets. I recognise that the Bill is not wholly relevant to Scotland, but I feel that some comparisons can be made with actions that we have taken there. As someone who was on a low wage and who rented in the private sector for a number of years, I...

Tower Block Cladding (21 May 2018)

Angela Crawley: I welcome the comments of right hon. and hon. Members across the House that no stone will be left unturned in delivering justice for the victims affected by this tragedy. I also welcome the news that the inquiry has opened today and that the necessary lessons will be learnt. As we approach the one-year anniversary, we need to look at all necessary regulation changes and the implementation of...

Women and Equalities: Gender Recognition Act 2004 (17 May 2018)

Angela Crawley: I welcome the Minister to her place. May I take this opportunity to recognise the International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia? As part of the consultation, will the Government make the necessary legislative changes to allow non-binary people to record their gender as X on passports and on other UK-wide records and identity documents?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU: Effect on Scotland (25 Apr 2018)

Angela Crawley: What recent discussions he has had with the Prime Minister on the effect of the UK leaving the EU on Scotland.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU: Effect on Scotland (25 Apr 2018)

Angela Crawley: The SNP asked the Secretary of State countless times whether amendments to clause 11 of the EU withdrawal Bill would be tabled to protect devolution, and time and again he promised that they would. The Scottish Government have drafted amendments and provided proposals, but the Westminster Government have ignored all of them. Is this not just another broken Tory promise to Scotland?

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?
