Unpaid Trial Work Periods (Prohibition) Bill (16 Mar 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: I thank the hon. Gentleman for bringing this important Bill forward. I was not really aware of this issue until, when my eldest son was a teenager, a couple of his friends worked several unpaid shifts in a restaurant. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that this is particularly rife in the hospitality industry, which many of us partake of and spend money in? If people were more aware of the issue...

Refugees (Family Reunion) (No.2) Bill (16 Mar 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: I, too, congratulate the hon. Gentleman on introducing this Bill. I absolutely support it, as I represent a community that has many, many refugees. Many of us have listened over the years to the holocaust memorial events and heard the stories of the elderly people, as they are now, who came over on the Kindertransport and so on. We have heard the stories of those who survived without their...

Burma: [Day 2] (15 Mar 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: It is a pleasure to follow so many eloquent—and some long—contributions. I wonder how many arch-Brexiteers have actually spoken to people who work in or run businesses to learn about the impacts of not only Brexit but uncertainty about Brexit, and how it is affecting decisions in their constituencies at this moment. I have done that, and I am going to share just two examples with...

Uk/EU Future Economic Partnership (5 Mar 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: We read in the Financial Times today that the United States “is offering Britain a worse ‘Open Skies’ deal” than the one we currently have as an EU member. Is that not a precursor to the hundreds of deals that the UK will have to negotiate once we leave the EU?

Homelessness: Department for Transport (27 Feb 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: I shall raise two points that are close to my heart. I raise the first in my role as co-chair of the all-party parliamentary cycling group. Additional investment in cycling and walking can bring about a win-win: improved health, improved productivity and learning for people who take exercise at the beginning of the day, reduced congestion, reduced travel costs and better air quality....

Mental Health Act: CQC Report (27 Feb 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: Yesterday some of us were present when Esther Rantzen told us that calls to Childline from children with suicidal feelings had risen in 10 years from virtually none to over 22,000 last year, and the CQC report yesterday found that young patients are not receiving the mental health care they need. So can the Minister explain why only 7% of the overall mental health budget is spent on children,...

Air Quality (22 Feb 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: Yesterday I sat here listening to the Prime Minister’s response to my question, and I was very surprised at the gap between the briefing that she had been given by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs—albeit, I accept, at short notice—and what I was reading through the news feeds. Will the Minister apologise to me and to the House for the briefing given to...

Ruth Cadbury: Whether he plans to replicate the terms of EU free trade agreements in trade deals with Switzerland, Norway and Turkey after the UK has left the EU; and if he will make a statement.

International Trade: Exiting the EU: Trade Agreements (22 Feb 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: I am going to pursue the questions asked by my hon. Friends the Members for Hornsey and Wood Green (Catherine West) and for Bradford South (Judith Cummins), which the Minister for Trade Policy did not answer. In 2016, the Secretary of State told the International Trade Committee that he would prioritise securing an agreement with Switzerland. The current relationship between the EU and...

Prime Minister: Engagements (21 Feb 2018)

Prime Minister: Engagements (21 Feb 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: On Monday, children and parents at St Mary’s Catholic Primary School in Chiswick told me of their concerns about air pollution affecting children’s health. This morning, the High Court ruled that the Government’s air quality plan is unlawful. What does the Prime Minister feel is worse: losing for the third time in the High Court, or 40,000 unnecessary deaths and the impact...

Prime Minister: Engagements (21 Feb 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. It relates to Prime Minister’s questions.

Prime Minister: Engagements (21 Feb 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: Thank you so much, Mr Speaker. My question to the Prime Minister referred to the ruling of the High Court today. In the ruling handed down in the High Court this morning, Mr Justice Garnham declared the Government’s failure to require action from 45 local authorities with illegal levels of air pollution in their area to be unlawful. In her response, the Prime Minister—

Women’S Suffrage Centenary (6 Feb 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: I thank the Minister for her statement about the grant programme to celebrate women’s suffrage. Will she confirm that the programme will celebrate the sacrifices of the suffragettes and the work of the thousands of women and men across the country who campaigned painstakingly for decades for women to be given the vote? Will she also confirm that the scheme will look not only backwards...

Baby Leave for Members of Parliament (1 Feb 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: Will the right hon. Lady give way?

Baby Leave for Members of Parliament (1 Feb 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: I thank my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Camberwell and Peckham (Ms Harman) and the right hon. Lady for securing this debate. The right hon. Lady makes an important point about local government. I gave birth 23 and 25 years ago, while I was a senior councillor in Hounslow. Although that was difficult, there are two fundamental differences between being in this place and being...

Joint Enterprise (25 Jan 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: I congratulate my right hon. Friend the Member for Tottenham (Mr Lammy), my hon. Friend the Member for Manchester Central (Lucy Powell), the right hon. Member for Sutton Coldfield (Mr Mitchell) and the hon. Member for Bromley and Chislehurst (Robert Neill) on securing this debate, and I thank the Backbench Business Committee for allocating it time today. I represent some of the family of...

Joint Enterprise (25 Jan 2018)

Ruth Cadbury: I thank the right hon. Gentleman so much. Anybody who has had any contact with people who have been diagnosed with autism at a later stage knows that the condition is often not diagnosed early. Many people go though many difficulties in their lives before being diagnosed, if at all. Alex was one of those in that unlucky situation. Because autism is an invisible disorder, many assessments...
