The Secretary of State’S Handling of Universal Credit (11 Jul 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: The Secretary of State said that this was a new benefit that was helping people into work. In my London borough of Hounslow, we have had full service roll-out for two years and three months, and three quarters of claimants are in work. It has caused huge problems. Many families have lost their homes and jobs, and many have been threatened with losing their children. Does my right hon. Friend...

The Secretary of State’S Handling of Universal Credit (11 Jul 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: Will the Secretary of State give way?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Female Offenders (10 Jul 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: Given that Baroness Corston’s seminal 2007 review of women in prison set out a clear case for the benefit of women’s centres and said that they should be at the centre of a successful strategy on female offending, why are the Government insisting on piloting this when we already know that it works? Is it because of lack of funding?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Heathrow Expansion: Landing Charges (5 Jul 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: What assessment he has made of the potential effect of increased landing charges at Heathrow Airport on the financial viability of the proposed expansion of that airport.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Heathrow Expansion: Landing Charges (5 Jul 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: The Airports Commission has indicated that landing charges would have to rise by around 70% per passenger, and British Airways has warned that any such increase would make many routes from Heathrow no longer commercially viable. Would that not have significant consequences for regional connections and/or increase ticket prices for passengers?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Schools: Per Pupil Funding (3 Jul 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: What recent discussions he has had with the Secretary of State for Education on changes in the level of funding per pupil in schools since 2010.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Schools: Per Pupil Funding (3 Jul 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: Will the Minister confirm that the additional £1.3 billion announced a year ago does not address the £1.5 billion shortfall in school budgets? So what advice does she have for the 88% of schools in this country facing real-terms budget cuts, despite the new funding formula?

Backbench Business - Improving Air Qualitybackbench Business (28 Jun 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: I welcome the joint report, the introduction to the debate by the hon. Member for Tiverton and Honiton (Neil Parish), and the speeches made by other Chairs and members of the Committees. It is a particular pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Milton Keynes South (Iain Stewart), who focused on particulates. We must not forget that, even if we all move to electric vehicles very soon, there...

Backbench Business - Improving Air Qualitybackbench Business (28 Jun 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: I too am aware of various initiatives, but would the hon. Gentleman care to tell us to what extent and by what proportion such initiatives will reduce air pollution, and by when they will be implemented? I do not remember seeing that in the documents from the Department for Transport.

Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: The case for runway 3 is as bad as ever for my constituents, and now weak overall, as the economic case has not been made—and that is based on the Department for Transport’s latest figures. The proposal keeps coming back—16 years, I think, it has been—and I have been campaigning against it all that time. It keeps coming back not because of an unwillingness to make a...

Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: I thank my neighbouring colleague. There is nothing in the NPS to justify how Heathrow can get away with saying that there will be no new traffic despite 50% more passengers, a doubling of cargo, and additional flight servicing and staffing. It is absolutely impossible. As everybody acknowledges, all the proposed rail infrastructure is needed now to meet current traffic pressures. Our roads...

Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: Does my right hon. Friend not agree that the much needed infrastructure promised as part of this statement—the southern and western rail links, along with Crossrail—have been on the cards for many years, and are needed for the existing number of passengers at Heathrow?

Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: How many airports per region will be protected by that “up to 15%” promise in the document? I have been led to understand that the Department will only protect one per region.

Football: Safe Standing — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (25 Jun 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Robertson. I apologise that I may not be able to stay for the end of the debate and the winding-up speeches, because I will need to be in the Chamber. I am a huge admirer of Brentford football club in my constituency, just around the corner from where I live, although I cannot call myself a football fan and I do not go regularly to...

Gosport Independent Panel: Publication of Report (20 Jun 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: The grandmother of one of my constituents died in Gosport War Memorial Hospital in January 1999—in other words, after concerns were being raised by families and by staff at the hospital. The family believe that her morphine dose was well above that needed for her reported pain. I thank the Health Secretary for the tone of his statement, and I also thank Bishop Jones for the work he did...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (18 Jun 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: I recently went out early one morning with the outreach workers of St Mungo’s, who help people newly sleeping rough to get into long-term support. Why is the Secretary of State pressing ahead with changes to funding for homeless hostels and other supported housing that charities such as St Mungo’s have said could threaten their hostels?

Exiting the European Union: Customs Arrangements (14 Jun 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: The director general warned that “opportunities are limited” and are “vastly outweighed by the costs incurred if the UK’s rules change so much that it reduces smooth access to the EU’s market.” Why then did the Government vote against Labour’s amendment for a new relationship with the single market based on shared regulations and common standards?

Immigration Rules: Paragraph 322(5) (13 Jun 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms McDonagh. I also thank the hon. Member for Glasgow Central (Alison Thewliss) for securing this excellent debate. I will try not to repeat the points that have been made by her and others. I declare an interest: I was chair of Barrow Cadbury Trust, which funded the Migrants’ Rights Network from its inception, and the MRN has been...

Airports National Policy Statement — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (7 Jun 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: Will the mitigation package and, in particular, the noise insulation be subject to an absolute cap, or will it be subject to the actual noise that people experience, and if they experience the higher level of noise that generates the need for insulation, will it be delivered irrespective of the monetary cap? Also, will it be delivered in advance of the new flights coming in, or will...

Airports National Policy Statement — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (7 Jun 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: Does my hon. Friend have any faith in Heathrow shifting funding to surface access, given that the airport spent a lot of its money on a legal challenge to the original proposal for what is now called Crossrail or the Elizabeth line in order to protect Heathrow Express, which is not a lot of use in the modern world?
