Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Departmental Allocations (10 Oct 2016)

Heidi Allen: Given the mixed views on grammar schools and the huge amount of work that will be required to ensure that no child is left behind, which I certainly fear they might be, will the Secretary of State please explain how grammar schools can possibly be a higher priority than fixing the flawed funding model that has resulted in thousands of children being seriously underfunded for decades in...

Calais Jungle (10 Oct 2016)

Heidi Allen: I am genuinely pleased to hear the Home Secretary speak with such a sense of urgency, and to read the reports in the newspapers. It seems that the Home Secretary had a very positive meeting with her counterpart, Mr Cazeneuve. However, I want to question her specifically on two priorities. First, we understand that an offer has been made for the French Red Cross to provide a building with...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (19 Oct 2016)

Heidi Allen: The employment figures that have come out today are of course fantastic news, but I am wary about the economic volatility that could result from Brexit, with the potential for inflation to rise and the cost of living to go up for people on very modest wages. Does the Prime Minister agree that we need to keep as many people in employment as possible? We have made the right decision on tax...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Refugees: Age Identification (31 Oct 2016)

Heidi Allen: I thank the Home Secretary and the Minister for their dedication to the issue in recent weeks. I understand that children are now being moved from the containers to resettlement camps around France. When might we see all the Dublin and Dubs children being extracted from there and brought here?

Improving Lives: Work, Health and Disability Green Paper (31 Oct 2016)

Heidi Allen: I encourage the Secretary of State to apply his very human and welcome fresh pair of eyes to the whole system. Damage will be done to his very good intentions if he proceeds with the cuts to universal credit work allowances and the ESA WRAG. I urge him to personally understand the risks in proceeding with both of those cuts.

Article 50 (7 Nov 2016)

Heidi Allen: I believe that acceptance of the High Court ruling would have offered a symbolic and inclusive hand to those of us who voted to remain. Inclusion is a part—a key ingredient—of the Prime Minister’s strategy of bringing the country back together and we all need to come along on this journey. The Government have chosen not to do that, but can we agree that the judiciary have an important...

Defence Estate (7 Nov 2016)

Heidi Allen: I have bobbed up and down so often this afternoon that I feel I have undertaken my own military fitness training. I thank the Secretary of State very much for his statement. May I just clarify whether the barracks at Bassingbourn in my constituency, which has been closed for some time, will now receive personnel from Burgoyne barracks in 2019, RAF Henlow in 2019, Weathersfield in 2020 and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Nursery Schools (14 Nov 2016)

Heidi Allen: Thank you, Mr Speaker, for preserving my Question 17. I am so pleased to hear that the Minister understands the real difference that local authority-funded nursery schools provide, and that a plan to fund them sustainably beyond two years is imminent. May I add my calls on behalf of Homerton Children’s Centre in my constituency? That announcement cannot come too soon. These children are...

Autumn Statement Distributional Analysis, Universal Credit and Esa (16 Nov 2016)

Heidi Allen: It is almost a year to the day that I stood here making my maiden speech and joining Members from all parts of the House to ask for reconsideration of the planned tax credit cuts. We understood and supported the need to reduce the welfare bill, but the planned cuts would have left a gaping hole in low-earning family incomes. Looking back, that was an easy argument to win. No one with a...

Autumn Statement Distributional Analysis, Universal Credit and Esa (16 Nov 2016)

Heidi Allen: I think it would send a message and set the fiscal tone that this Government care and are listening to those who, as I mentioned, are running our engine. It would set the tone by saying that this country is, and will continue to be, open for business and can afford to run itself. Turning to employment and support allowance, I am, of course, delighted that we have a Green Paper coming, and...

Social Care (16 Nov 2016)

Heidi Allen: The motion that we are debating is wide ranging because when we talk about social care, we are talking about the needs of older people, the disabled and their carers. In my constituency, we have one of the fastest-growing ageing populations in the country, so I understand only too well the pressures placed on my hospital, Addenbrooke’s, when elderly patients cannot be discharged. My county...

Employment and Support Allowance and Universal Credit (17 Nov 2016)

Heidi Allen: Is the universal credit that my hon. Friend has in his constituency the full version or the initial straightforward version just for single claimants?

Employment and Support Allowance and Universal Credit (17 Nov 2016)

Heidi Allen: I agree that those charities are very welcoming of the new Green Paper, but does my hon. Friend agree that they are still consistent in saying with one voice that the cuts to the ESA WRAG are wrong, and that they are not replaced in the Green Paper?

Employment and Support Allowance and Universal Credit (17 Nov 2016)

Heidi Allen: Did the EHRC not offer to do that assessment for free? I seem to remember that it did, such was its wish to contribute.
