European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

Heidi Allen: The right hon. and learned Gentleman is right. We did not get to debate that amendment because we ran out of time yesterday, but it is huge. It means that, logically, we will have to come to a customs union agreement, partnership—[Interruption]—I’ll do that. I do not care what we call it, but that is what we will need to avoid any border at all in Northern Ireland. It is great progress.

Offences Against the Person Act 1861 (5 Jun 2018)

Heidi Allen: This is a hard and emotive topic. Northern Ireland is a devolved Administration, so is it our business? I am a modern, progressive woman and I am proud that this country is my home. As a woman who believes passionately in equality, choice and an individual’s right to determine their own destiny; as a woman elected to be the Member of Parliament for South Cambridgeshire in the 21st century...

Rail Timetabling (4 Jun 2018)

Heidi Allen: If GTR is telling the Secretary of State that things are getting better in my constituency of South Cambridgeshire, it is not being truthful to him. The experience of my constituents—and, indeed, my experience of travelling in today—is that things are getting worse. Network Rail may hold the lion’s share of the responsibility, but the operators have a role to play too. Why on earth did...

Fur Trade — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (4 Jun 2018)

Heidi Allen: I do not wish to draw the hon. Gentleman away from the core of the debate, but given that he has just outlined why he believes that there are grounds within EU legislation for our stopping the import of fur, does he think that we might set other precedents and extend that to the import of foie gras, which I am deeply uncomfortable with?

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Renewable Energy (17 May 2018)

Heidi Allen: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what steps his Department is taking to reduce (a) energy consumption and (b) energy production from biomass fuel after the UK leaves the EU; and what steps his Department is taking to encourage other forms of renewable energy through subsidies.

Windrush (2 May 2018)

Heidi Allen: Will the right hon. Lady give way?

Windrush (30 Apr 2018)

Heidi Allen: I congratulate the Secretary of State on his new position, but share my regret that we have lost the right hon. Member for Hastings and Rye (Amber Rudd), a parliamentarian of the highest calibre, from the Cabinet. Given the devastating impact on the lives of the Windrush generation of getting this policy or its implementation wrong, will he commit to ensuring that we do not repeat these...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Universal Credit (26 Mar 2018)

Heidi Allen: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, with reference to the Universal Credit split payment arrangement related to domestic violence cases, whether non-requesting partners are able to reverse a request via (a) their online account or (b) Jobcentre Plus.

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Housing Revenue Accounts (22 Mar 2018)

Heidi Allen: To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, when his Department plans to publish the (a) details of what constitutes high affordability and (b) criteria used in determining how support will be allocated under the Housing Revenue Account borrowing cap announced in Autumn Budget 2017.

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 the...

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 £1.5...

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 Government...
