Backbench Business: Defence Capability — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (19 Oct 2017)

Anna Turley: I appreciate the hon. Gentleman giving way on that point. Does he agree that it would be great to see a defence industrial strategy that really set out a vision for the way in which we procure stuff from the MOD, particularly to support the British steel industry, which is close to my heart, so that we do not see a repeat of the procurement process for the Type 26 frigate, which saw just 35%...

Backbench Business: Carbon Capture and Storage — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (19 Oct 2017)

Anna Turley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship as always, Sir David. I thank the hon. Member for Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland (Mr Clarke) for securing this debate and for his powerful contribution. Carbon capture and storage is a technology with huge importance for our industry, energy and our climate challenges. It has huge potential to bring investment and jobs to Teesside,...

Royal Mail Delivery Office Closures — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (11 Oct 2017)

Anna Turley: I congratulate my hon. Friend on calling this debate. Does she agree that often the most vulnerable people—elderly people and so on—who are restricted by problematic public transport such as a lack of buses are also hit hard by these closures?

Petition - Closure of Marske Medical Centre (25 Apr 2017)

Anna Turley: I rise to present a petition signed by 421 residents of Marske and New Marske in my constituency about a decision to close this medical centre at the end of June. The petition states: The petition of residents of Marske and New Marske in the Redcar Constituency. Declares that the decision to close the Medical Centre of Hall Close, Marske-by-the-Sea, will leave over 5,000 patients, many of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (25 Apr 2017)

Anna Turley: My constituent, 29-year-old father Alex Everington, was the victim of a road crash that left him paralysed from the neck down. His dad Ian said:

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Social Housing Rent Arrears (24 Apr 2017)

Anna Turley: What estimate he has made of the number of social housing households in rent arrears in England.

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Social Housing Rent Arrears (24 Apr 2017)

Anna Turley: That seems a huge number: nearly a quarter of people in social housing in rent arrears. In one ward of my constituency, nearly half of our social housing tenants—46% of them—are in rent arrears. One single mum has seen her rent jump from £8 to £70 a week because of the benefit cap, and the bedroom tax is still wreaking devastation. Is this not a damning indictment of...

Business of the House (20 Apr 2017)

Anna Turley: South Tees clinical commissioning group announced a fortnight ago that the Marske medical centre, which serves more than 5,000 people in the village, many of them elderly, will close at the end of June. NHS England has provided emergency GP cover for the last year after Danum Medical Services, the company that previously ran the centre, went into liquidation. Not a single bid has been...

Animal Welfare (30 Mar 2017)

Anna Turley: I am delighted to have the opportunity to speak in this debate, and I congratulate the hon. Member for Tiverton and Honiton (Neil Parish) and all the EFRA Committee on securing this debate and on their excellent report. I am particularly grateful for the opportunity to speak about increasing sentences for animal cruelty because, as I have already mentioned, my private Member’s Bill...

Animal Welfare (30 Mar 2017)

Anna Turley: I wonder whether the hon. Gentleman has also had a conversation with the Government Whips, because on 24 February we considered the Second Reading of my Animal Cruelty (Sentencing) Bill, which would have increased the sentencing period to five years, but unfortunately it was objected to by the Government Whips. I hope he is putting pressure on them as well.

Stoke-on-Trent City of Culture 2021 (21 Mar 2017)

Anna Turley: I want to intervene on my hon. Friend before he finishes, because I have been waiting throughout all the speeches for some mention of one of the greatest things I discovered on my recent trip to Stoke: the Staffordshire oatcake. After an evening in one of the lovely pubs that have been mentioned, there is nothing greater than having a cheese and bacon oatcake to finish the evening.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: “General Practice Forward View” (21 Mar 2017)

Anna Turley: What steps his Department is taking to ensure that NHS England’s “General Practice Forward View” has the funding necessary to achieve its goals.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: “General Practice Forward View” (21 Mar 2017)

Anna Turley: I appreciate the Minister’s response, but the reality on the ground in areas such as Redcar and Teesside is that we face a deficit of £281 million by 2020. How can he reassure my constituents, who are already finding it hard to get an appointment with a GP, that already scarce services will not become even more so?

Counter-Daesh Update (15 Mar 2017)

Anna Turley: I appreciate the Secretary of State’s statement today. I want to ask about her statement that “We…are using our position in the UN Security Council and the International Syria Support Group to press the regime and its backers to allow aid to reach those who need it, and call for civilians to be protected.” Will she say more about what success we are having and what...

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (14 Mar 2017)

Anna Turley: I appreciate my hon. Friend mentioning the fantastic institute in my constituency. Does she share my concern at a story on WalesOnline last week saying that Swansea is predicted to receive £80 million for a steel science centre that would almost directly duplicate the work that is happening at the MPI in Redcar and could then impact on the Nissan supply chain that she mentions?

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (14 Mar 2017)

Anna Turley: After seven years of economic failure, missed deficit reduction targets, deteriorating public services, increasingly insecure employment, and an explosion in the number of food banks supporting working people, my expectations for this Conservative Budget were already low, but have we ever had a Budget so lacking in substance? With breathtaking complacency, it made no mention of the greatest...

NHS Shared Business Services: Points of Order (27 Feb 2017)

Anna Turley: Thank you, Mr Speaker, for giving me the opportunity to speak. I would also like to thank the hon. Member for Shipley (Philip Davies) for advance sight of his comments. There is never, ever any excuse for people to abuse Members of Parliament and the hon. Gentleman’s staff certainly should not have had to wade through such messages. Feelings around animal cruelty run very high. People...

Awards for Valour (Protection) Bill: Offence of wearing awards with intent to deceive triable summarily (24 Feb 2017)

Anna Turley: I am pleased to hear that the hon. Gentleman takes prison and custodial sentences seriously. Will he therefore try to make a bit more progress so that we can discuss some of the other Bills—for example, mine, which would increase the maximum sentence for animal cruelty from the current paltry six months to five years?

Jamal Al-Harith (23 Feb 2017)

Anna Turley: The British public will be completely bewildered by the lack of information from the Minister today. They will be appalled: this is not simply an issue of the individual case, but a policy issue that we need to reflect on in the House. The debate is already raging out there among the British public and the media, along with an awful lot of misinformation. There are questions that the Minister...
