Attorney General: Child Sexual Exploitation (21 Jun 2018)

Lucy Allan: The Solicitor General will be aware of a horrific case I have been raising in this place of a 13-year-old victim of a grooming gang.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jun 2018)

Lucy Allan: Last year, the number of children in the care system in England rose to a record of 73,000, with huge social and economic consequences. The care crisis review, published last week, found that the drivers of that increase included a risk-averse blame culture and a failure to direct spending to family support. Will the Prime Minister ensure that her children’s Minister considers the...

It was intended...

Child Sexual Exploitation and Consent to Sexual Intercourse (22 May 2018)

Lucy Allan: I fully agree with my hon. Friend that the Solicitor General is an eminent and learned colleague. I also agree with his point about Telford and Wrekin Council. Now that it has decided that it will have an investigation into child sexual exploitation in Telford, it is imperative that it gets on and appoints a chairman. We have already waited two months, and I cannot see that anything has...

Child Sexual Exploitation and Consent to Sexual Intercourse (22 May 2018)

Lucy Allan: Indeed—the hon. Lady makes an excellent point. She and I would both have reached that conclusion and many members of the public would, too, which is why I am glad that it has now been placed on the record. It is difficult for me to understand why it was the victim’s behaviour that was in question and not the behaviour of the men. It is almost as if it is an accepted norm that...

Often we talk about her passion, for which she is renowned, but she...

GKN (24 Apr 2018)

Lucy Allan: I thank the Secretary of State for his statement and welcome the undertakings that he has secured. The future of GKN was determined by speculators who came on to the share register in the final weeks of the bidding process to make a quick profit. Does the Secretary of State agree that that is no way to determine the future of a great British manufacturing company, and will he now conduct a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (28 Mar 2018)

GKN: Proposed Takeover by Melrose (27 Mar 2018)

Lucy Allan: I welcome the statement from the Secretary of State and the undertaking he has secured from Melrose in the event of a successful bid.

Member for Leeds North West (Alex Sobel) has given us the opportunity to talk about the rights of victims and some of the difficulties that they have in getting their voices heard.

Victims of Crime: Rights — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (13 Mar 2018)

Lucy Allan: I thank the hon. Lady for her encouragement and the inspiration that she provides to me and others in speaking out on this matter. Interestingly, each child sexual exploitation case bears some resemblance to others. They all start in the same way and progress in the same way, from something that seems quite acceptable, tame or innocent into something horrific: trading young girls for sex for...
