I feel that there is a double injustice: not only are these women subjected to abuse and violence,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: STEM Subjects (11 Dec 2017)

Melanie Onn: At last week’s meeting of the all-party parliamentary group on the UK oil refining sector, I met several young ambassadors who had excellent suggestions for encouraging young people to study STEM subjects. One suggestion was that Ofsted should measure the number of engineers that schools produce, rather than how many of their pupils go to university. Will the Secretary of State consider...

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Melanie Onn: I congratulate the hon. Member for South East Cornwall (Mrs Murray) on securing the debate and on her excellent work with the all-party fisheries group, of which she is chairman. I also echo her sentiments about the Fishermen’s Mission and its continued good work supporting fishermen and their families and local communities, particularly those in my constituency.

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Melanie Onn: A rare moment of cross-party agreement around fisheries. I thank the hon. Lady for those comments. Today, I want to focus my remarks primarily on the processing side of the fisheries industry. However, before I get on to that, I want to mention the case of a former fisherman from my constituency. In the debate last year, I raised the case of James Greene, and the issue of fishermen missing...

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Melanie Onn: Yes. I will come on to regulatory alignment and the variance thereof. I want to talk briefly about Norway, because it has been mentioned in the debate, and it is often cited as an example of how Britain’s fisheries sector could thrive outside the common fisheries policy. However, what is not mentioned is the effect Norway’s position has had on its seafood processing sector. By...

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Melanie Onn: And more expensive fish and chips, as my right hon. Friend says from a sedentary position. I met the Minister with a delegation from Grimsby’s seafood processing sector last month to discuss ways to ensure that our ports and industry could continue to grow post-Brexit, so I recognise that this issue is on his agenda. However, perhaps he could just update the House on what work he is...

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Melanie Onn: I thank the hon. Lady for sharing that point. It just goes to show how important it is, in all areas of the country and in all our coastal communities, that every effort be made to make sure that our local communities do not suffer as the outcome of Brexit becomes ever clearer. About one in five of the industry’s skilled workforce comes from overseas. Training needs to be much more...

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Melanie Onn: When my right hon. Friend watched that programme, was he as concerned as I was by the amount of plastic being ingested by some of the marine life that later goes into our food chain?

Universal Credit Project Assessment Reviews (5 Dec 2017)

Melanie Onn: I have wanted to make a comment for some time, so I am grateful to the hon. Lady for giving way. On the supposed blocks in the previous system, I have been contacted by constituents who were previously nursing students in receipt of a nursing bursary and, under the old system, tax credits. Because that bursary was not considered an income, they were still able to get tax credits, so they...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (29 Nov 2017)

Melanie Onn: I add my congratulations to those of the First Secretary of State to Prince Harry on his engagement. Thanks to the outstanding efforts of the Labour-run North East Lincolnshire Council, the Government have included the Greater Grimsby project in their industrial strategy document, but we need more than a byline in a glossy magazine to make its potential a reality. When can we expect the...

Universal Credit (23 Nov 2017)

Melanie Onn: Given the Government’s assumptions on minimum incomes—the so-called floor, which penalises self-employed people on low incomes—will the Secretary of State review these rules, as they are putting people such as my constituent Tracy out of business and into debt?
