United Kingdom’S Withdrawal from the European Union (29 Mar 2019)

Heidi Allen: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. The Prime Minister must now recognise that this deal is over, and the House has a serious responsibility on Monday to find a solution to this impasse. Jobs and livelihoods across the country are at stake. There is a way out of this impasse, as many of us have been saying for months and months: we must have a people’s vote now.

European Council (25 Mar 2019)

Heidi Allen: Does the Prime Minister realise that when she so flippantly dismisses calls for a confirmatory public vote or second referendum, she is—just like that—dismissing the million-odd people who marched on Saturday and the 5.5 million and rising who have signed the petition to revoke article 50? She says it would undermine democracy, but does she realise that democracy is not indefinitely owned...

Destitution Domestic Violence Concession (Eligibility): Article 50 Extension (20 Mar 2019)

Heidi Allen: I think it worth ensuring that the House is aware that in the last five minutes Donald Tusk has confirmed that a short extension will be made available only if the House approves the withdrawal agreement next week. That is clearly not going to happen. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that there should be no more smirking at the Dispatch Box, no more playing games and no more poker about no deal?...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Universal Credit: Debt (18 Mar 2019)

Heidi Allen: What assessment she has made of the effect of the five-week wait to receive universal credit on claimants’ levels of debt.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Universal Credit: Debt (18 Mar 2019)

Heidi Allen: I am afraid to say that the five-week wait issue is not going to go away until the Government recognise that it is driving some people to food banks. I was in Glasgow on Friday with the Chair of the Work and Pensions Committee, the right hon. Member for Birkenhead (Frank Field), and we will continue on our tour of the UK, taking a camera crew with us and shining a spotlight on poverty until...

Business of the House (Today): UK’s Withdrawal from the European Union (14 Mar 2019)

Heidi Allen: I appreciate the right hon. Lady allowing me an intervention. The repeating of meaningful votes seems somewhat ironic, in that Parliament can vote repeatedly on the same deal yet the British public cannot do so, but let us gloss over that for a moment. Does this not do a disservice to Parliament? Surely the 52:48 referendum result and the disastrous 2017 general election result are the only...

Business of the House (Today): UK’s Withdrawal from the European Union (14 Mar 2019)

Heidi Allen: I feel fortunate that I did not actually hear what the right hon. Gentleman called me. Regardless, I just wanted to check whether it was an act of chivalry not to allow the good people of Redcar, Barnsley and Nottingham to have their voice again. Is it an act of chivalry not to allow them to say how they feel today?

Business of the House (Today): UK’s Withdrawal from the European Union (14 Mar 2019)

Heidi Allen: Will the Minister give way?

Uk’S Withdrawal from the European Union (13 Mar 2019)

Uk’S Withdrawal from the European Union (13 Mar 2019)

Heidi Allen: For clarification and for the benefit of many of us in the House who want to support amendment (a)—the right hon. Lady is one of the lead names on that amendment—will she be pushing it to a vote this evening?

Spring Statement (13 Mar 2019)

Heidi Allen: Does the Chancellor understand that ending the benefits freeze is not just about people in work? It is about our welfare safety net. People who cannot work because they are too ill cannot afford to live on the basic amount. The benefits freeze must end. The core amount of universal credit and employment and support allowance have not risen for three years.

Business of the House (Today): European Union (Withdrawal) Act (12 Mar 2019)

Heidi Allen: This House needs to find a way of compromising to get out of the fix that we are in. I understand that this is a difficult question, but I am going to ask it anyway because I appreciate that the SNP does not like the Prime Minister’s deal, and many of us, for various reasons, do not either. If we were to make it subject to a people’s vote, I suspect that that would get this Parliament,...

Financial Services (Implementation of Legislation) Bill [Lords]: Social Security (4 Mar 2019)

Heidi Allen: Setting aside my concerns about the direction of the Conservative party, one of the motivations behind those of us determined to build a new centre ground party is the opportunity to develop policy based on evidence and to reflect on and amend our policy when that evidence changes. The motion in front of us today is one that this House debates annually. Its purpose is to increase welfare...

Financial Services (Implementation of Legislation) Bill [Lords]: Social Security (4 Mar 2019)

Heidi Allen: I want to put on the record that I have visited some of the poorest parts of the country in recent weeks with the right hon. Member for Birkenhead (Frank Field), and I can confirm that I have seen this destitution with my own eyes. I have spoken to individuals who have literally £5 a week to live on for a variety of reasons, including their inability to access universal credit, but the...

School Funding — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (4 Mar 2019)

Heidi Allen: The hon. Lady comes on to talk about teachers, and it seems to me that the impact is not only on the children. We risk those in this much-needed profession being too exhausted and stressed to cope with the additional pressures and workload. We risk alienating them from the profession altogether.

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: D-Day Landings: Anniversaries (4 Mar 2019)

Heidi Allen: To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, what plans his Department has to mark the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings this year.
