Housing, Communities and Local Government: Local Authorities: Children’s Services (18 Jun 2018)

Marie Rimmer: Baby P, Victoria Climbié, Shannon Matthews—I am sure the House remembers those names. Child safety is a major concern right across our country, with councils starting no fewer than 500 child protection investigations a day. St Helens Council has almost twice as many looked-after children than the national average and has pulled £5 million from reserves to fund their care. That...

Marie Rimmer: What progress he has made on developing (a) sector deals and (b) local industrial strategies as part of the industrial strategy.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Industrial Strategy (12 Jun 2018)

Marie Rimmer: I and my Front Bench colleagues have been informed that dozens of sectors have put forward proposals for a sector deal, including the steel industry, but have had little or no engagement from the Government. Will the Secretary of State confirm how many proposals for sector deals he has received and to how many he has formally responded?

Orkambi and Cystic Fibrosis — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (19 Mar 2018)

Marie Rimmer: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Evans. I congratulate the hon. Member for Sutton and Cheam (Paul Scully) on securing the debate. For good reason, the issue has galvanised popular opinion. As we all know, cystic fibrosis is an extremely serious, debilitating and life-limiting—yet thankfully rare—diagnosis. As we have heard, in February, Vertex proposed a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (19 Mar 2018)

Marie Rimmer: Thank you, Mr Speaker. What plans do the Government have to support the 1.4 million children and young people affected by the decision to discontinue the specialist contract for speech, language and communication needs?

A-Level Provision: Knowsley Metropolitan Borough (27 Feb 2018)

Marie Rimmer: In Carmel College, 400 pupils—just under 25%—come from Knowsley. That is exactly the same position as two years ago.

A-Level Provision: Knowsley Metropolitan Borough (27 Feb 2018)

Marie Rimmer: The advice is that there has been an impressive number of applications so far, suggesting significant aspiration among school leavers in Knowsley to study A-levels, and an offer of 21 subjects, many of them A-levels. Is my hon. Friend concerned that people may be applying thinking that everything they want to do will definitely be on offer?

PRAYERS - [Mr Speaker in the Chair] : Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill — [Mr Speaker in the Chair] (23 Feb 2018)

Marie Rimmer: I pay tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Coventry North West (Mr Robinson) for introducing this Bill, which speaks to our common humanity. To be in the Chamber today to support it is a great honour for me. Three people die daily in the UK because of the lack of available organs for transplant, and this Bill would increase the chance of an unwell person and a life-saving organ being...

PRAYERS - [Mr Speaker in the Chair] : Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill — [Mr Speaker in the Chair] (23 Feb 2018)

Marie Rimmer: Yes, I do agree. Steve Prescott’s widow, along with colleagues, friends and members of the community of St Helens, set up the Steve Prescott Foundation. She also approached the parents of Violet Grace to give comfort and support. They have set up a huge and very successful campaign in our town, urging us all to donate our organs. Steve died, unfortunately. The actual transplant—a...

Justice Committee (22 Feb 2018)

Marie Rimmer: I pay tribute to the Chair of the Justice Committee, which I have recently rejoined. I also pay tribute to the Minister for the quick actions that he has reported. However, we must not forget why we find ourselves in this situation. I am pleased about the announcement—made some time ago—of the recruitment of an extra 2,500 prison officers, but we must bear in mind that we lost...

Free School Meals/Pupil Premium: Eligibility (6 Feb 2018)

Marie Rimmer: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone, and I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Washington and Sunderland West (Mrs Hodgson) on securing the debate. This Government have presided over a total failure to address this country’s economic flaws, to the extent that food banks are now a major food supplier in Britain. Free school meal eligibility is linked...

Backbench Business: Criminal Justice System: Adults with Autism — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (30 Jan 2018)

Marie Rimmer: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Edward. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Cardiff West (Kevin Brennan) on securing this important debate. Adults with autism experience the criminal justice system in a unique way, which is reflective of the unique and complex way they experience the world and the social, physical and psychological symptoms of their condition,...

Backbench Business: Criminal Justice System: Adults with Autism — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (30 Jan 2018)

Marie Rimmer: I accept that point. It should start with policing and go right through the system with the individual. I welcome the recent progress that has enabled witnesses on the autistic spectrum to request a registered intermediary to help judges and lawyers to phrase their questions more appropriately. Will the Minister consider enforcing the universal implementation of those measures to make our...

Pip Back Payments (30 Jan 2018)

Marie Rimmer: When the Government announced the changes to the regulations in 2017, their own assessment was that approximately 164,000 claimants would be directly affected. Will the Minister commit to recommending that priority is given to those people who were directly affected and lost money, and to addressing the problems with some urgency?

Refugees and Human Rights (24 Jan 2018)

Marie Rimmer: This year marks the 70th anniversary of the universal declaration of human rights, one of the greatest achievements of the 20th century, but the current climate raises serious questions about our ability to uphold those human rights in an ever-changing world. We have seen a rise in populist nationalism across Europe, and particularly in the United States. Some of the traditionally liberal...

Food Poverty: Merseyside — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (16 Jan 2018)

Marie Rimmer: Will the Minister give way?

Food Poverty: Merseyside — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (16 Jan 2018)

Marie Rimmer: It is a pleasure to speak under your chairmanship, Sir David. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Liverpool, West Derby (Stephen Twigg) on securing the debate. Food poverty is at epidemic levels across Great Britain. As my hon. Friend said, it was defined by the Department of Health as “the inability to afford, or to have access to, food to make up a healthy diet”. We...

Mental Health in Prisons — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (10 Jan 2018)

Marie Rimmer: I thank all Members from right across the House and all parties, and the Minister for his obvious commitment and desire to do things. We wish him well and look forward to the vast improvements in our prisons and in safeguarding for our prisoners, and to the fruitful lives they live in society when they leave prison healthy. Question put and agreed to. Resolved, That this House has considered...

Mental Health in Prisons — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (10 Jan 2018)

Marie Rimmer: I beg to move, That this House has considered mental health in prisons. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Howarth. I am pleased to have the opportunity to discuss this intolerable crisis. Suicide and self-harm in prison have reached record highs. In 2016, 119 prison suicides were recorded—the highest number since records began—and there were 41,103 incidents of...
