Devolution (East Anglia) (27 Apr 2016)

Heidi Allen: To be absolutely clear, I thought I heard music to my ears a moment ago—that devolution deals should come from the regions that want them. Given that all the parties that have signed a tentative document are not happy, for whatever reasons, what is stopping us from going back to the drawing board? I think what would work for all of us would be Suffolk and Norfolk, and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Long-term Youth Unemployment (9 May 2016)

Heidi Allen: On the subject of long-term youth unemployment, I was curious to know what our work coaches are doing to help young people get the softer skills they need to get into the workplace—CV preparation and so forth?

Immigration Bill: Detention etc. by immigration officers in Scotland (9 May 2016)

Heidi Allen: I am disappointed to hear language of that nature, because the Government have not made a U-turn; they have been very carefully weighing up how on earth to mitigate the pull factor, which still remains a huge danger. They have taken their time to deliver proposals that will work and will not endanger children in the future.

Immigration Bill: Detention etc. by immigration officers in Scotland (9 May 2016)

Heidi Allen: On that point about the language around registered children—I, too, welcome the Minister’s response to that—I am interested in my hon. Friend’s views on how we can work with NGOs to identify the children who were in Europe before the Turkey deal, because a lot of them will not be in the system.

Child Refugee Resettlement (10 May 2016)

Heidi Allen: This morning we are being challenged on the speed of the scheme. We have asked an awful lot of the Government and they have delivered; I am very proud that they have listened to us. I understand that turning passion and heart into practical steps takes time and co-ordination with other bodies. I would much rather encourage Ministers than berate them, and ask, for example, what can I do? What...

Debate on the Address: The Economy and Work (26 May 2016)

Heidi Allen: Would my hon. Friend consider jobs for the girls too?

Debate on the Address: The Economy and Work (26 May 2016)

Heidi Allen: Somebody once told me that there is no such thing as luck. Luck, they said, is a place where opportunity and preparation meet. Many of us in this Chamber will have grown up with everything pretty much sorted: a stable family, a decent household income, a great education and good health—that perfect mix that prepared us to control our lives and to make use of opportunities that came our way....

Business of the House: Disability Employment Gap (8 Jun 2016)

Heidi Allen: I think most Members would accept that Governments of all colours have not done enough to support disabled people into work. This debate centres on whether the commitment made by this Government to halve the disability employment gap is progressing quickly enough, and in the right way. Looking simplistically at the numbers, which many Members have touched on today, there are now 365,000 more...

Business of the House: Disability Employment Gap (8 Jun 2016)

Heidi Allen: Forgive me—I am honestly not seeking an extra minute—but I genuinely do not understand the question. Did the hon. Lady mean medical professionals in jobcentres?

Business of the House: Disability Employment Gap (8 Jun 2016)

Heidi Allen: Perhaps we can have a conversation later, because I do not understand the question. I am sorry. Departments need to work together—hell might freeze over—and perhaps share budgets. Having the right housing, for example, is the absolute beginning of a disabled person’s journey to work. If the fund available to deliver the Work and Health programme is significantly less than those for its...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Whales: South Atlantic (5 Jul 2016)

Heidi Allen: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what representations she has made to the International Whaling Commission on Japan's resumption of whaling in the South Atlantic.

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Whales: South Atlantic (5 Jul 2016)

Heidi Allen: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what steps the Government plans to take at the International Whaling Commission meeting in Slovenia in October 2016 related to Japan's resumption of its whaling programme in the South Atlantic.

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Whales: South Atlantic (5 Jul 2016)

Heidi Allen: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, whether the Government will be represented at ministerial level at the International Whaling Commission meeting in Slovenia in October 2016.

EU Nationals in the Uk (6 Jul 2016)

Heidi Allen: Thank you for calling me, Madam Deputy Speaker. I do not think I have ever been the first Back Bencher to be called. This is a record—I must be doing something right. The emails I have received since the vote to Brexit have been like a tidal wave. “We felt like a hurricane had hit our house”. That was a statement made by one of the 200 of my constituents who came to a public meeting I...

EU Nationals in the Uk (6 Jul 2016)

Heidi Allen: I thank the right hon. Gentleman. It is interesting, given that I am about to come to a point about lack of cross-party consensus, that what he says is almost exactly what is on my next page, so perhaps I am about to eat my words. I was about to say that I am disappointed that the cross-party consensus that led up to the referendum seems to have evaporated already, and we are back to the same...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Workless Households (11 Jul 2016)

Heidi Allen: Building on the point about the significantly reduced amount of funding available for the Work and Health programme, what assurances will the Secretary of State be able to give us if, in the light of Brexit, we see a significant increase in the number of people looking for work generally? How on earth will a reduced programme be able to serve everybody?

Sats Results (12 Jul 2016)

Heidi Allen: Going through change is difficult. Do the Government have a role to play in keeping our teachers with us, which is what I worry about most of all? Change is hard for the children and teachers, but our teachers are under unprecedented stress, and I worry for them. Do the Government not need to keep a close eye on that and listen to teachers at all times?

Sats Results (12 Jul 2016)

Heidi Allen: Does the hon. Gentleman think that when schools do better than expected, it might sometimes be because the children have been taught very closely in order to get them through the tests, with the breadth of education that my hon. Friend the Member for Bexhill and Battle (Huw Merriman) mentioned being ignored?

Supported Housing: Benefit (20 Jul 2016)

Heidi Allen: Over the past few days I have been pondering whether Government reshuffles are frustrating or whether they are an opportunity. Listening to the tone set by the new Secretary of State today, I have settled on opportunity. The topic of this debate offers a huge opportunity to our new Secretary of State and his team. I know that this Government share my appreciation of the role of supported...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Family Reunification: Europe (5 Sep 2016)

Heidi Allen: I welcome any sense of urgency from the Home Secretary. My hon. Friend the Member for Enfield, Southgate (Mr Burrowes), the right hon. Member for Normanton, Pontefract and Castleford (Yvette Cooper) and I visited Calais just two weeks ago and were disappointed yet again to find young, vulnerable children with no one to support or look after them. What can the Secretary of State tell me...
