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 they...

Leaving the Eu: Economic Analysis (30 Jan 2018)

Heidi Allen: No one in this House should dismiss the referendum result—that would be overstepping the mark—but it is our role, as the Government have accepted, to scrutinise the deal and ensure that it is the very best it can be for all our citizens, regardless of how, or indeed whether, they voted in the referendum. The impact assessments were made available to parliamentarians in absolute...

Personal Independence Payment (23 Jan 2018)

Disability Confident Scheme — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (10 Jan 2018)

There should be access to work experience and job interviews. What does the Minister think about expanding the scheme to cover those as well?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Heidi Allen: I am afraid I am little overwhelmed by the legal expertise all around me—I will just speak very plainly. Does my right hon. Friend not understand the difficulty and the trust issue when my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Beaconsfield has been trying for weeks and weeks, with all good intentions, to engage the Government in this process and has failed? There comes a point when...

Universal Credit Project Assessment Reviews (5 Dec 2017)

Heidi Allen: I do not know where to start after that. I am humbled by the words of my good friend the right hon. Member for Birkenhead (Frank Field). No Governments are perfect, no benefit system is perfect and no debate or motion is perfect, but by God we will work together and make this better. Select Committees are cross-party and they play an important role in scrutiny. Our Work and Pensions...
