I am sure universal credit will continue to be scrutinised...

Universal Credit Project Assessment Reviews (5 Dec 2017)

Wendy Morton: At the heart of universal credit is a system that makes work pay and helps people into work. One of the fundamental things it does is give people more support in their local jobcentre.

In many circumstances, new projects and new programmes have to be...

Prisons (Interference with Wireless Telegraphy) Bill (1 Dec 2017)

Wendy Morton: I am grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Eastleigh (Mims Davies) for giving us the benefit of her wisdom. I was concerned that you might look at this Bill and think that there is perhaps some use for it here in the House of Commons, Mr Speaker—let us hope not! On a more serious point, my hon. Friend the Member for Torbay (Kevin Foster) was touching on security and safety in...

Prisons (Interference with Wireless Telegraphy) Bill (1 Dec 2017)

Wendy Morton: My hon. Friend makes a valid and pertinent point. People who go to prison should not have the connections and privileges that those of us in the outside world enjoy.

The main aim of the Bill is to authorise public communications providers to disrupt the use of unlawful mobile phones in prisons. When I was reading the...
