Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Health and Social Care (2 Jun 2015)

Heidi Allen: Forgive me; I am new here and very confused. This seems very simple to me. At the election, I promised every person who voted for me in South Cambridgeshire that I would not join in with this negative campaigning, and as Andrew Lansley’s successor I feel that now is the time I should stand up. Is it not time to put the past behind us? The NHS has a fabulous leader in Simon Stevens. That man...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Superfast Broadband (4 Jun 2015)

Heidi Allen: I feel that I am about to gatecrash a party, but we have exactly the same situation in South Cambridgeshire. Connecting Cambridgeshire is doing a fantastic job of rolling out broadband across much of the constituency, but our roads are at gridlock—a happy consequence of our economic success—and it is vital that we keep people working in local hubs and from home. I, too, am interested in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Scotland Bill (8 Jun 2015)

Heidi Allen: I thank my right hon. Friend for taking my intervention. So much of what I am hearing is a lack of trust—[Interruption.]—and my point is that that has to change. There is nothing that we cannot achieve together if we have a little bit of trust. I am very new to politics, as many Members will know, but I would not stand behind a Government who I felt just wanted to play their part and play...

G7 (10 Jun 2015)

Heidi Allen: The Prime Minister has spoken about the conversations that he is having about stopping companies, particularly large companies, artificially shifting profits abroad. That made the British people very angry recently. Can my right hon. Friend give us a little more detail about the content of the discussions?

Business of the House: Royal Bank of Scotland (11 Jun 2015)

Heidi Allen: It strikes me that the concern is about the process at the beginning of the sale. All the advice—from the Bank of England and Rothschild—is about phasing, which is part of the journey to return to profitability. May I suggest a rebranding exercise? Perhaps we should call this something different—I know what: a long-term economic plan!

Heidi Allen: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (22 Jun 2015)

Heidi Allen: As the employment figures tell us, the work plan is working. Before I came to this place, I ran my own business, and when I saw the same CVs coming back six months or a year later, I would choose to email or call those people and try to give them some coaching. It is a great opportunity for businesses to mentor individuals who are not being touched by the work plan.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Onshore Wind Subsidies (22 Jun 2015)

Heidi Allen: I just want to tell my right hon. Friend that my constituents will be delighted. I am thinking of those in the north whose villages have been blighted by the Cotton wind farm—they cannot sleep and cannot sell their houses. In the south of my constituency, we have large solar farms coming at us left, right and centre. She will have made a lot of people very happy, so we thank her.

Heidi Allen: indicated dissent.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Child Poverty (1 Jul 2015)

Heidi Allen: Thank you, Mr Speaker. I was here towards the end of the transport statement. I want to draw on my own experiences as a business owner. It is important that, however we choose to describe the measures, we tackle child poverty head-on. During the early days of one particular employee’s employment, it felt like I had to drag him to work. He was a young man aged 21 with three small children...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (7 Jul 2015)

Heidi Allen: This is a request really: will the Secretary of State please meet me and GPs from the surgery in Cambourne—which we could call a new town—who are significantly underfunded? The funding model does not work for them; they are at breaking point, and they need your help.
