Immigration (Time Limit on Detention): [2nd Allotted Day] (5 Dec 2018)

Angela Crawley: Thank you for calling me, Mr Speaker. I appreciate your forbearance and patience, because it has been a long afternoon. Along with every other area in Scotland, my constituency voted to remain, yet Scotland has been repeatedly ignored. Because my time is limited, I will focus on three main points. I believe that this deal is bad for young people, bad for women and bad for the economy. The...

Delegated Legislation (Committees): Scotland’s Foreign Policy Footprint (3 Dec 2018)

Angela Crawley: To speak on behalf of—or perhaps in place of— the hon. Member for Rutherglen and Hamilton West (Ged Killen), the David Livingstone Centre, which is situated in his constituency, showcases the links between Scotland and Malawi. In my constituency, there is also the New Lanark mill, which is a UNESCO world heritage site and which illustrates the outstanding universal value of these...

Delegated Legislation (Committees): Scotland’s Foreign Policy Footprint (3 Dec 2018)

Angela Crawley: Scotland’s leadership on climate change and ambitious action on reducing carbon emissions in 2009 were showcased in the Copenhagen summit. Whether it is on refugees and migrant issues, gender issues, human rights, social justice or the environment, Scotland is leading the way—ahead of the UK.

Delegated Legislation (Committees): Scotland’s Foreign Policy Footprint (3 Dec 2018)

Angela Crawley: In terms of Scotland’s role in global citizenship, through its contribution to the UN’s sustainable development goals and its international development fund and strategy in Malawi, Rwanda, Zambia and Pakistan, Scotland has proven that it is an inclusive, outward-looking country that plays a vital role globally. Will my hon. Friend join me in urging the UK to follow our lead?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Immigration System (3 Dec 2018)

Angela Crawley: The UK detains more migrants than the majority of European countries and is alone in detaining indefinitely without a time limit. Does the Minister accept the findings of the Shaw review that detention is harmful to mental health and will he end indefinite detention?

Petition - a National Carers Strategy for Unpaid Carers: Jagtar Singh Johal (27 Nov 2018)

Angela Crawley: I praise my hon. Friend for his tireless campaign on behalf of his constituent Jagtar and his family. Does he share my deep concern that, given the FCO’s recent success and the publicity around the Matthew Hughes case, it is simply not good enough for the Minister to stand here today and offer platitudes? There has been inaction and a lack of capacity in this case, which has resulted in...

Universal Credit and Child Tax Credit: Two-child Limit — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (27 Nov 2018)

Universal Credit and Child Tax Credit: Two-child Limit — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (27 Nov 2018)

Angela Crawley: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Universal Credit and Child Tax Credit: Two-child Limit — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (27 Nov 2018)

Angela Crawley: The charity Refuge found that the two-child limit is forcing domestic abuse survivors and their children into poverty as a result of an increased financial dependence on their perpetrators. Does my hon. Friend agree that women are ultimately fearful to leave abusive relationships because they cannot support themselves, and that that is another example of where the policy has gone wrong?

EU Exit Negotiations: Veterans Strategy (15 Nov 2018)

Angela Crawley: I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved in organising remembrance events across South Lanarkshire, including South Lanarkshire Council headquarters which lit up its own building to commemorate the anniversary. My constituent Thomas Stuart White from Carluke currently receives 70% of his war disablement pension and a lifetime award of disability living allowance....

Science and Technology Committee: Anti-bullying Week — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (15 Nov 2018)

Angela Crawley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Bailey, and I congratulate the hon. Member for Cambridge (Daniel Zeichner) on securing this important debate, raising awareness and championing the cause of eradicating bullying. It is Anti-bullying Week, and the theme is to choose respect. As the hon. Gentleman rightly outlined, the prevalence of bullying is increasing, including online...

Women and Equalities: Equality Act 2010: Commencement of Section 106 (15 Nov 2018)

Angela Crawley: A number of single parents have accessed the advance payment service under universal credit. However, as a result, they have found that the payments are required to be repaid in 15 months, or with 40% of their entitlement reclaimed. What will the Government do to ensure that many are not falling further into financial hardship as a result of advance payments under universal credit?

Ovarian Cancer: Diagnosis and Treatment — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (30 Oct 2018)

Angela Crawley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Bone. I congratulate the hon. Member for North East Derbyshire (Lee Rowley) on securing the debate and on bravely speaking of his own experience and that of his mum, Linda. I am sorry to hear about the experience that his family have had in the past year and I wish Linda well. I thank hon. Members on both sides of the Chamber for...

HELMS and the Green Deal — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (23 Oct 2018)

Angela Crawley: One couple who approached me had specifically been told that installing solar panels would help them make money on the sale of their home, but instead they have been paying double and triple the amount for their electricity. Does my hon. Friend agree that those who have been hardest hit are people in middle to low-income homes?

HELMS and the Green Deal — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (23 Oct 2018)

Angela Crawley: I am sure that the hon. Gentleman is aware, from speaking to his constituents, that people who chose to pay over several years through their electricity bills are not able to withhold payment, which is a common and acceptable consumer rights practice, if they believe that there was mis-selling. If the power company does not receive the funds, those people accrue debt. They cannot prevent the...

HELMS and the Green Deal — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (23 Oct 2018)

Angela Crawley: The hon. Gentleman is speaking to specific issues of fuel poverty in Northern Ireland. To come back to the mis-selling of the green deal, does he agree that people were conned into buying mis-sold products on the basis that there were UK Government logos on the paperwork, and UK Government approval gave them the confidence to go ahead, so the Government should compensate those individuals?...

HELMS and the Green Deal — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (23 Oct 2018)

Angela Crawley: As my hon. Friend knows, last year I set up the all-party parliamentary group on green deal mis-selling, which I chair. We have been inundated by problems of that kind. The distinct issue in Scotland, with cladding work in particular, is the requirement for building warrants, which HELMS did not apply for and which cannot be applied for retrospectively. That leaves householders unable to sell...

Universal Credit (17 Oct 2018)

Angela Crawley: This week, South Lanarkshire Council informed employees that they could lose their universal credit over the Christmas period simply because they are paid four-weekly. Does my hon. Friend agree that this is yet another example of the shambles around universal credit, and will he urge the Secretary of State to do everything in her power to ensure that low-paid staff at South Lanarkshire...
