Opposition Day — [4th Allotted Day]: Equal Pay and the Gender Pay Gap (1 Jul 2015)

Louise Haigh: Does the right hon. Lady agree that in order to improve the number of women on boards we must do much more to tackle the pipeline and encourage businesses to promote women internally?

Public Bill Committee: Education and Adoption Bill: Clause 13 - Local authority adoption functions: joint arrangements (2 Jul 2015)

Louise Haigh: My hon. Friend makes an important point. The Bill makes it seem that the Government feel that adoption is the only solution for children in care. Figures from the Fostering Network show that, of the 65,000 children and young people in care, only 4,000 want or need to be adopted.  Adoption is not an appropriate solution for the vast majority of children in care, who might be in care only...

Voluntary agencies are incredibly successful in that regard, with only 3% of adoptions breaking down.

Friend agree that it would be helpful if they confirmed exactly what resources they will provide, and does he further agree that it would also be helpful for them to confirm how regional schools commissioners will work with local authorities? At...

Public Bill Committee: Education and Adoption Bill: Clause 2 - Performance standards and safety warning notices (7 Jul 2015)

Louise Haigh: Does my hon. Friend agree that the issue is about not only who is Secretary of State, but an additional layer of accountability? As we heard time and again in evidence last week, that confuses the system and adds yet more challenges to a demoralised and over-pressurised workforce.
