Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (14 Mar 2018)

Heidi Allen: I am immensely proud to have the world-leading research and teaching hospital of Addenbrooke’s in my constituency. Its scale and excellence means that it relies heavily on doctors from overseas, but of late it has struggled to bring some of those doctors in because of restrictions on the tier 2 visa numbers. With applications from the EU also falling, it is becoming a real problem. Can...

Universal Credit (13 Mar 2018)

Heidi Allen: Does my hon. Friend think that the number of Members on the Opposition Benches, and the lack of retaliation, means that they have realised that they have pushed it too far, and that they are now woefully out of their depth and just plain wrong?

Universal Credit (13 Mar 2018)

Heidi Allen: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Universal Credit (13 Mar 2018)

Heidi Allen: Opposition Members know that I have been the first to stand up and challenge the Government on universal credit, and the Government have listened. First, at the 2016 autumn statement, we reduced the taper rate from 65% to 63%, which cost the country £700 million but put around £300 into families’ pockets. Secondly, I worked with the Government at the end of last year to secure...

Universal Credit (13 Mar 2018)

Heidi Allen: My hon. Friend makes a valuable point. That fear is particularly prevalent on social media. There is a saying that a mistruth can travel halfway around the world before the truth has even put its boots on. That is happening with universal credit, aided and abetted by social media. Universal credit is not even in my constituency yet, but I hear from constituents who are worried about it. Oddly...

Universal Credit (13 Mar 2018)

Heidi Allen: If we were to maintain free school meals for absolutely everybody on universal credit, does the hon. Lady think it would be right to prioritise those coming from the legacy tax credit system, who could be earning up to £50,000 a year, instead of opening up eligibility and getting free school meals to more children in poverty?

Petition - Removal of Royal Mail Postal Collection (27 Feb 2018)

Heidi Allen: I rise to present a petition about the removal of the Royal Mail postal collection box on the High Street in Cottenham. The petition states “that the residents and Parish Council of Cottenham in South Cambridgeshire are adversely affected by the removal of the Royal Mail postal collection box on the High Street” and requests that the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local...

Leaving the EU: No-deal Alternatives — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (21 Feb 2018)

Heidi Allen: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Leaving the EU: No-deal Alternatives — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (21 Feb 2018)

Heidi Allen: At the end of the day we have to try to find some peace on both sides of this argument. This could be the common market. It could, in some ways, be what many people who voted leave were hoping that we would go back to, and it could actually be the best compromise for everybody.

Leaving the EU: No-deal Alternatives — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (21 Feb 2018)

Heidi Allen: It seems to me that whatever side of the argument the public started on, what they want from Parliament more than anything is to find a way through this and to secure the best outcome. That involves compromise, which my hon. Friend’s suggestion of EFTA-EEA could be. On behalf of the country, as Parliament we should get behind the Prime Minister and offer that as a solution. No side gets...

Taylor Review (7 Feb 2018)

Heidi Allen: Having sat on the joint BEIS and Work and Pensions Committee, I am really pleased to hear from the Minister today that the Government will adopt its recommendations. The area of case law on the meaning of “worker” is really complicated, so I understand the need for consultation to understand it. We heard evidence of Uber and Deliveroo not treating their self-employed workers as if...

Pip Back Payments (30 Jan 2018)

Heidi Allen: I am very pleased that the Secretary of State has decided to accept this ruling from the Court and that the Minister has today confirmed that there will be no face-to-face reassessments—that is absolutely right. I am also greatly encouraged that the Minister will be working with Mind, Paul Gray and other knowledgeable people to rectify the situation. Might she continue to work with...
