European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [9th Allotted Day] (15 Jan 2019)

Heidi Allen: Let me begin by addressing the issue of our divided country, which is repeatedly emphasised by commentators. I disagree—people are totally united. They are united by a pride in their country and in a determination that their nation deserves the best. Regardless of which side of the argument we are on, we all care passionately about the future of our country and our citizens. Although there...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [9th Allotted Day] (15 Jan 2019)

Heidi Allen: That is the most important point, because this is about the future, not today, and certainly not yesterday. Here we are today with a non-binding political declaration that will inevitably—indeed, this is already the case—become a negotiating tool for leaders in other EU countries: France for access to fish; and Spain for game-playing with Gibraltar. The biggest risk for me is the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Points of Order (9 Jan 2019)

Heidi Allen: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I have to tell you that I am absolutely hopping mad. When I became an MP three years ago I was determined that I would not become part of the establishment. Do people in this House have any idea how out of touch the general public think we are most days? We are talking about 79 days to potentially crashing out of Europe without a deal; our focus should not be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (7 Jan 2019)

Heidi Allen: I would like to put on record my thanks to the Secretary of State for listening and changing her approach to managed migration. I think we will see a step change in how vulnerable claimants feel about their security under universal credit. I have given her a list of other areas of UC that need improving. I urge her to look at one area that will completely revolutionise how people feel about...

European Council (17 Dec 2018)

Heidi Allen: It is not just the backstop that worries colleagues, myself included; for me, it is the lack of legal certainty over what our future trade deals might look like. The political declaration is not legally binding, so any EU country leader, including our own should we have a different leader, could rip it up and we could spiral to a no-deal Brexit at any time. The Prime Minister has said it is...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Govia Thameslink Railway: Timetables (4 Dec 2018)

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (21 Nov 2018)

Heidi Allen: On Monday, at an event for cystic fibrosis sufferers organised by my hon. Friend the Member for Dudley North (Ian Austin), I heard something that I never want to hear again: a young woman in her 30s actively researching funeral plans because she has cystic fibrosis and knows there is no cure. My question is about the conversation between the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence,...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Teachers: South Cambridgeshire (20 Nov 2018)

Income Tax (Charge) (29 Oct 2018)

Heidi Allen: I should like to refer to several of the announcements before moving on to the welfare changes, for which I have been campaigning very hard. The Government’s prioritisation of NHS funding, especially for mental health, is very welcome. My local authorities will be relieved to hear that they will be able to apply for grants, but a long-term plan in the spending review next year cannot come...

Income Tax (Charge) (29 Oct 2018)

Heidi Allen: I have been dissecting today’s announcements. Would my right hon. Friend be interested to know that a single parent not in receipt of housing benefit will see their work allowance improve from £397 to £492, but it will still not be where it should have been on pre-2015 figures, which is £734? That remains a massive gap. I do not think we have heard enough of the detail today.

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation and Exercise of Functions) Bill: Extension of period for Executive formation (24 Oct 2018)

Heidi Allen: It is very kind of my hon. Friend to give way. On the subject of emergency Bills, what could be more of an emergency than the women of Northern Ireland wondering, right here and right now, what on earth they have to put themselves through in order to have the choice to have an abortion without having to travel to England? For me, that is a pretty big emergency, too.

Miscellaneous (24 Oct 2018)

Heidi Allen: rose—
