Margaret Greenwood: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship this afternoon, Dame Angela. I congratulate my right hon. Friend the Member for Kingston upon Hull North (Dame Diana Johnson) and the hon. Member for Worthing West (Sir Peter Bottomley) on securing the debate and thank them for all their work on this important issue. I pay tribute to everyone campaigning on this too. As we know, during the...

backbench business: Infected Blood Inquiry and Compensation Framework — [Dame Angela Eagle in the Chair] (24 Nov 2022)

Margaret Greenwood: The hon. Lady makes really important points on behalf of her constituent. Furthermore, the Government have still not responded in full to Sir Robert Francis’s report on the compensation framework. Will the Minister say today when that response will be published? The infected blood inquiry is ongoing and is due to report in mid-2023. It is vital that the Government act as swiftly as possible...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill: New Clause 61 (23 Nov 2022)

Margaret Greenwood: I am not sure whether the Minister was in the Chamber for the remarks that the hon. Member for Mansfield (Ben Bradley) made about new clause 84, which would require the Government to make “reducing geographical disparities in adult literacy” one of their missions, and to set out a plan “to improve levels of adult literacy and eradicate illiteracy”. The hon. Member seems to think that...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill: New Clause 61 (23 Nov 2022)

Margaret Greenwood: I will focus my remarks on new clause 84, tabled in my name. I thank colleagues who have put their names to it. New clause 84 would require the Government to include reducing geographical disparities in adult literacy as one of their levelling-up missions. Additionally, it would require them, during each mission period, to review levels of adult literacy in the UK, to publish the findings of...

NHS Staffing Levels — [Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (22 Nov 2022)

Margaret Greenwood: This has been such an important debate, and I thank every Member who contributed to it. My hon. Friend the Member for Batley and Spen (Kim Leadbeater) spoke of the dejected and run-down state of mind of many NHS staff. My hon. Friend the Member for Edmonton (Kate Osamor) spoke powerfully about how racism affects black and ethnic minority staff and how they are under-represented at senior...

NHS Staffing Levels — [Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (22 Nov 2022)

Margaret Greenwood: I beg to move, That this House has considered NHS staffing levels. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship this afternoon, Mr Hollobone. I pay tribute to all the nurses, doctors and other medical professionals—indeed, everybody who works in the NHS—for the work they do to look after patients and keep us all safe. I have been overwhelmed by the number of organisations that have...

NHS Staffing Levels — [Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (22 Nov 2022)

Margaret Greenwood: The hon. Lady makes an incredibly important point. There can be no more poignant and devastating example of what this crisis is leading to. The Health and Care Act is a privatising piece of legislation that opens the door to private companies having a greater say in the delivery of health care. Guidance by NHS England, while the Act was going through Parliament, stated that it would enable...

NHS Staffing Levels — [Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (22 Nov 2022)

Margaret Greenwood: As ever, my hon. Friend makes an interesting and detailed point born of her experience. The Minister should take note. To conclude, since 2010, Conservative Governments have let the crisis in NHS staffing develop. Instead of doing the important business of Government and bringing forward a timely workforce plan and a properly funded training regime, they have focused their energy on not one,...

Nature and Climate Declaration — [JAMES GRAY in the Chair] (9 Nov 2022)

Margaret Greenwood: I noted the Minister’s remarks about how she likes to work across Departments. I am particularly concerned about the Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill, part 5 of which will essentially remove environmental impact assessments and strategic environmental assessments and bring in environmental outcomes reports. It kind of gives the Secretary of State a blank cheque to do what he or she wishes...

Nature and Climate Declaration — [JAMES GRAY in the Chair] (9 Nov 2022)

Margaret Greenwood: I note the hon. Lady’s remarks about bus fares. In the Liverpool city region, the metro Mayor, Steve Rotheram, has introduced the £2 fare, which is having a fantastic impact on the way people travel, because it makes things so much more affordable. Does she agree that we need to see a lot more of that around the country?

Nature and Climate Declaration — [JAMES GRAY in the Chair] (9 Nov 2022)

Margaret Greenwood: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gray. I congratulate the hon. Member for St Ives (Derek Thomas) on securing this incredibly important debate; I was interested to hear about what is happening in his constituency. As we all know, the need to act on climate change is urgent. Extreme weather events over the summer saw the UK endure record temperatures of more than 40°C for...

State Pension Triple Lock (8 Nov 2022)

Margaret Greenwood: The Minister is being generous in giving way. It is good to see her being so keen on auto-enrolment. Will she be clear with the House that that policy was designed by the Labour party?
