Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Personal Independence Payment: Medical Examinations (23 Oct 2018)

Heidi Allen: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, whether he has made an assessment of the effect of the introduction of the 20-metre rule on the level of people's eligibility for personal independence payment compared with previous levels of eligibility for disability living allowance.

October EU Council (22 Oct 2018)

Heidi Allen: I have no doubt at all that the Prime Minister thinks of every individual person in this country when she is negotiating the best possible deal, but I fail to understand how it can be a politicians’ vote when nearly 700,000 members of the public took to the streets to display their dissatisfaction. I ask her again: what will she do if we come to the position of no deal, which will not get...

Leaving the Eu: Meaningful Vote (22 Oct 2018)

Heidi Allen: In December last year this House voted for a meaningful vote on the final deal, and we have subsequently, and again today, been reassured that any amendments to the motion on the subject of the deal will be a matter for the Speaker. Indeed, just last week the Prime Minister replied to me that in the case of no deal, the matter would come back to this House for us to agree on next steps. Why...

Universal Credit (17 Oct 2018)

Heidi Allen: I am pleased to speak in this vital debate, not only because when universal credit is rolled out it will affect millions of lives, but because two significant parliamentary events are coming soon: the Budget and the regulations on managed migration. I have been a member of the Work and Pensions Committee since 2015 and I have seen the Government do the right thing time and again. We halted...

Universal Credit (17 Oct 2018)

Heidi Allen: My hon. Friend is absolutely right: it is a fact that universal credit was not built for self-employed people, and it shows. The monthly assessments do not work and the minimum income floor needs to be looked at again because it typically takes more than a year for people’s businesses to settle down. To make the existing system really fly, I suspect that we need a boost to IT and admin man...

Universal Credit (17 Oct 2018)

Heidi Allen: I appreciate the right hon. Gentleman giving way, not least because I might run out of time and not able to say all that I want to say in my speech, including suggesting that it might be a wiser idea to make the advance payment into a first payment. It could be a bit like when people who do not pay their last month’s rent do not get their deposit back. We would look to take something back...

Universal Credit (17 Oct 2018)

Heidi Allen: I hope that my friends in the Opposition will forgive me for saying this, but everybody in the Chamber genuinely wants to get UC right, and I would rather that Opposition Members did not belittle my hon. Friend, who is genuinely trying to do his best to find out what is happening in his constituency.

Universal Credit (17 Oct 2018)

Heidi Allen: For the record, I was one of those employers, and I got very frustrated that I could not give more hours to people working for me. On the taper rate, it is better than it was. Given the choice, I would restore the taper rate to 50%, where it was originally designed to be. Does my right hon. Friend agree that if we are going to have to choose wisely where to spend money, we should pump money...

Universal Credit (17 Oct 2018)

Heidi Allen: I want to express the view of Government Back Benchers on the motion. We believe genuinely that the Secretary of State is listening to what needs to change with universal credit, which makes a mockery of the motion, and not a single person, myself included, will vote for it.

EU Exit Negotiations (15 Oct 2018)

Heidi Allen: I do not wish to labour the point, but like my right hon. Friend the Member for Loughborough (Nicky Morgan) my businesses and constituents in South Cambridgeshire are terrified of a no deal, too. If that comes to pass and the Prime Minister will not entertain an extension of article 50, but accepts the reality that there is no way that no deal will pass through this House, I ask with the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Universal Credit Roll-out (15 Oct 2018)

Heidi Allen: Just to draw on a point that we have already heard in the Chamber this afternoon, is the Secretary of State aware how much support she has on the Conservative Benches for our desire to see extra funding in the Budget to restore the work allowances to where they should be?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Oct 2018)

Heidi Allen: In March, colleagues and I met the Prime Minister to discuss sleep-in shifts, and I thank her very much for her focus. I appreciate that Ministers are still in discussions since the Court of Appeal ruled not to uphold the Unison case, but in the absence of clarity, some local authorities are now reverting to paying a single through-the-night rate, whereas we have rightly said that people...

Written Answers — Attorney General: Hare Coursing (9 Oct 2018)

Heidi Allen: To ask the Attorney General, pursuant to the Answer of 28 February 2018 to Question 129098, how many reports of hare coursing were received in each year since 2014; and how many (a) prosecutions and (b) convictions there have been relating to hare coursing in 2018 to date.

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Legal Aid Scheme: Immigration (4 Sep 2018)

Heidi Allen: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, pursuant to the Written Statement of 12 July 2018, on Justice update, HCWS853, whether the reinstatement of legal aid will apply to children located outside of the UK whose cases may fall under (a) the Dublin regulation and (b) section 67 of the Immigration Act 2016.

Heidi Allen: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what proportion of people with multiple sclerosis who scored 12 points under PIP mobility activity 2 moving around descriptor (e) can stand and then move more than 1 metre but no more than 20 metres, either aided or unaided were (a) new claimants and (b) reassessments in the latest period for which figures are available.

Proxy Voting (18 Jul 2018)

Heidi Allen: We have to modernise. I come from a business background, I have worked in the public sector, and I have never experienced archaic practices like some of those that we have here. We have to change. We have to find an alternative, new way of voting. Dragging in sick and heavily pregnant Members does not send a good message to the public. It is not good enough for us to be okay in this place; we...
