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...

Parliamentary Candidates: Barriers for Women (13 Sep 2017)

Angela Crawley: I am coming to a close, so I will continue. Will the Government commit to rise to the challenge and be world leaders? Will they make that happen? Will they take on this issue as their responsibility? Will the Minister lead and ensure that this place has the representation that we all want?

Letting Agent Fees (Tenants) — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (6 Sep 2017)

Angela Crawley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Owen. I congratulate the hon. Member for Thirsk and Malton (Kevin Hollinrake) on securing the debate, and I give credit where credit is due, because this issue affects so many people’s lives and raising it in this place is absolutely necessary. I also congratulate the Government on taking a positive step for people in rented...

Grenfell Tower and Building Safety (5 Sep 2017)

Angela Crawley: Let me again extend my deepest condolences, and those of my party, to the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire and their families. Responding to such a tragic incident is undoubtedly challenging for any Government, but it is also a test of how a Government can react to ensure that we never find ourselves in the same situation again, and I welcome the Secretary of State’s response to...

Women and Equalities: Equality and Women’s Rights: DUP Discussions (6 Jul 2017)

Angela Crawley: I join hon. Members across the House in wishing a happy Pride to all those celebrating London Pride this weekend. Despite the fact that a number of promises were made during the election campaign on the need to strengthen and protect equality legislation, there was no such commitment in this year’s Queen’s Speech. People across this country have deep concerns that the Tory...

Housing and Social Security (22 Jun 2017)

Angela Crawley: I should like to associate myself with the comments made by right hon. and hon. Members across the House about the tragic incident at Grenfell Tower. We on these Benches welcome the inquiry and believe that lessons must be learned from this event. This Queen’s Speech seems to me to be one of the most shambolic and lame legislative programmes in my lifetime. The Tories, cowed by their...

Housing and Social Security (22 Jun 2017)

Angela Crawley: Absolutely. Statistics already show that over 80% of the cuts fall on women. That is simply not good enough.

Housing and Social Security (22 Jun 2017)

Angela Crawley: I need to make some progress. The UK Government are fixated on a failed Brexit strategy and intent on damaging the economy and threatening jobs—so much so that they have cancelled next year’s legislative programme. In closing, my call to the Government Benches is this: stop being fixated on fighting with the EU and get on with your day job of governing this country.

The Minister for Women and Equalities Was Asked: Universal Credit (23 Mar 2017)

Angela Crawley: May I, too, associate myself with the comments made by right hon. and hon. Members from across the House? The Prime Minister wants to transform the way in which we think about domestic violence, and I am sure that the Minister supports her in those efforts, but does the Minister accept that that is completely undermined by introducing the rape clause without parliamentary scrutiny? Will she...

Maternity Discrimination — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (15 Mar 2017)

Angela Crawley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Chope. I congratulate the hon. Member for Washington and Sunderland West (Mrs Hodgson) on securing this debate. We have debated this issue before, but it is welcome that we are doing so again. As she highlighted, the Government’s failure to take action and level the playing field for the many women who experience maternity...

International Women’S Day (2 Mar 2017)

Angela Crawley: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Birmingham, Yardley (Jess Phillips), the right hon. Member for Basingstoke (Mrs Miller) and all the female Members who have spoken in the debate so far. Notwithstanding the hon. Member for Shipley (Philip Davies), it is a shame that there are not more men participating in this debate—[Interruption.] I am pleased that he has saved us all...

PRAYERS - [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] : Fathers in the Family (1 Mar 2017)

Angela Crawley: Does my hon. Friend agree that all the evidence from the work of the Women and Equalities Committee—including the gender pay gap report, the pregnancy and maternity discrimination report and the current fathers and the workplace inquiry—outlines that there is an economic benefit to fathers playing an active role in their children’s lives?

LGBT History Month — [Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (28 Feb 2017)

Angela Crawley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairship, Ms Dorries. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Dumfries and Galloway (Richard Arkless) on securing this debate. He is indeed a champion of equality for all. This debate gives us the opportunity, before the end of the month, to celebrate in the House the successes in the struggle for LGBTI equality in the UK. It also gives us the...
