Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill (20 Oct 2017)

Ruth Cadbury: My hon. Friend makes an excellent point about NHS resources. When I visited my accident and emergency department at West Middlesex University Hospital, I found that it is spending £2 million a year on additional mental health staff in the main part of the hospital, because there is not adequate capacity in the mental health services to enable people with acute mental health problems to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (19 Oct 2017)

Ruth Cadbury: Domestic air travel is surely an integral part of the UK’s transport infrastructure. In their planning for Heathrow expansion, how much have the Government budgeted to increase the number of domestic routes to London from Scotland, Northern Ireland, the north and the south-west?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Personal Independence Payments (9 Oct 2017)

Ruth Cadbury: That is not the experience of some of my constituents, including one who has a rare condition and is on the highest level of DLA, and so should automatically be entitled to PIP, but whose assessor had no knowledge of the condition and refused the PIP application. Will the Minister specify the exact training, experience and competence requirements an applicant would have to demonstrate to...

Princess Royal Hospital Telford: UK Nationals in the EU: Rights — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (12 Sep 2017)

Ruth Cadbury: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Streeter. On Second Reading of the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill last night, this House voted to pursue one of the most treacherous attacks on our democracy that we have seen for many decades—and that is the constitutional experts speaking. In the debate, many Members also addressed the substantive issue of the impact of an...

Free Childcare Entitlement (6 Sep 2017)

Ruth Cadbury: Will the Minister acknowledge that the commitment given by his predecessor at a meeting I held with independent small nursery owners in Isleworth last November has not been upheld? They warned her that the funding for the scheme would be insufficient and they would have to close, reduce the range of services to children, charge high amounts for lunch or cut the proportion of highly qualified...

Humanitarian Situation in Mosul: Grenfell Tower Fire Inquiry (12 Jul 2017)

Ruth Cadbury: It is a great pleasure to have sat through the whole of this debate and listened to the excellent maiden speeches of my hon. Friends the Members for Leeds North West (Alex Sobel), for Croydon Central (Sarah Jones), for Barnsley East (Stephanie Peacock), for Lewisham West and Penge (Ellie Reeves) and for Leigh (Jo Platt)—I hope I have got them all. This has been an excellent debate, with...

Humanitarian Situation in Mosul: Grenfell Tower Fire Inquiry (12 Jul 2017)

Ruth Cadbury: That is an excellent point. Clearly fire service officers and other workers are on the frontline when it comes to experiencing trauma; we heard about that in many reports on the Lakanal fire. Such an essential service, which employs people who will experience that trauma, cutting specialist counselling services by half is yet another example of the impact of cuts and austerity on public...

Humanitarian Situation in Mosul: Grenfell Tower Fire Inquiry (12 Jul 2017)

Ruth Cadbury: Has my right hon. Friend picked up on the rumour about the review of building regulations in the Department for Communities and Local Government? I have heard that the review was paused because the civil servants who were leading on it were put on to other work related to Brexit. If that is true, how many other pieces of essential, urgent and safety-related work are on pause in government...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (21 Jun 2017)

Ruth Cadbury: I am honoured to have been re-elected to represent the Brentford and Isleworth constituency. I congratulate the hon. Member for Chelmsford (Vicky Ford), who is no longer in the Chamber, on her maiden speech. She clearly has a deep love for her constituency. In respect of the four terrible events that have taken place since Dissolution, I share the sympathy expressed by hon. Members to people...

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

Ruth Cadbury: Will the Justice Secretary have it in her heart to look into the case of Charlie Gard, a very sick eight-month old baby boy with a rare mitochondrial depletion condition who is legally unable to leave Great Ormond Street hospital to receive treatment in the US that might just save his life? His family are constituents of mine and my hon. Friend the Member for Feltham and Heston (Seema...

Air Quality Strategy (24 Apr 2017)

Ruth Cadbury: Air quality standards are breached regularly in my constituency from Chiswick, to Brentford, Isleworth and through to Hounslow. Do my constituents not deserve better on this issue, especially as the Government want to push ahead with runway 3 at Heathrow, which will only make the problem significantly worse?

Animal Welfare: Easter Adjournment (30 Mar 2017)

Ruth Cadbury: Before I start, I want to add my tribute to the many others that have been paid to Keith Palmer, who lost his life protecting us; and to his colleagues, who went straight back to work protecting us. Our thoughts are with all who were injured and bereaved in the incident last Wednesday, and our gratitude goes to those in the emergency services and the many others who responded so quickly. It...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Heathrow: Noise Monitoring (30 Mar 2017)

Ruth Cadbury: Thousands of my constituents will live under an extremely loud noise environment if and when runway 3 goes ahead, but they do not at present, and I welcome the formation of the new community campaign group Brentford and Hounslow Stop Heathrow Expansion. Will the Government insist that if runway 3 goes ahead, Heathrow must match Gatwick’s offer to pay all council tax payers within the 57...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: School Funding Formula (20 Mar 2017)

Ruth Cadbury: Heads in my constituency have told me that they are already having to cut teachers, teaching assistants, key courses and even school hours, and from Friday’s EPI report we find that there are unlikely to be any schools in England that will avoid per-pupil funding cuts. Does the Minister recognise that the Government are breaking yet another manifesto promise?

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (9 Mar 2017)

Ruth Cadbury: In response to the question from my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer), the Secretary of State implied that there was some difference between frictionless trade arrangements and tariff and barrier-free arrangements. What exactly are those differences?

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Whiplash Claims (7 Mar 2017)

Ruth Cadbury: Six thousand vulnerable road users—pedestrians and cyclists—responded to the Justice Department’s consultation on the reforms, expressing concerns that cyclists and pedestrians would be disproportionately affected by any increase in the small claims limit.
