Oral Answers to Questions — Public Accounts Commission: Police Force Financial Sustainability (7 Dec 2017)

Louise Haigh: What the policy of the National Audit Office is on conducting regular reviews of the financial sustainability of police forces.

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Accounts Commission: Police Force Financial Sustainability (7 Dec 2017)

Louise Haigh: I am grateful for that answer. An independent assessment of police force funding would be welcome, not just on an individual force level, but as a whole. The hon. Gentleman is right that the NAO published an effective report two years ago, but the Government have claimed since then that they have protected police funding, which has been challenged by police and crime commissioners and the UK...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Public Services: West Midlands (6 Dec 2017)

Louise Haigh: The Prime Minister has been unable to provide us with a single plausible Brexit scenario that will meet her red lines and be acceptable to her Cabinet, to Ireland and to the DUP. Is it not therefore time that she dropped either her red lines, the DUP, or the pretence that she can govern this country?

Hydraulic Fracturing: North East Derbyshire — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (22 Nov 2017)

Louise Haigh: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that the problem with the application in his constituency is not just the impact it will have there, but that it could be the tip of the iceberg for applications in surrounding constituencies, such as my own, that are in urban areas? This is not just an issue for rural areas. All the surrounding areas are considered to be high risk by the Coal Authority.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Police Funding Formula (20 Nov 2017)

Louise Haigh: The Minister says that he wants evidence for police funding. How about the document that every chief constable and PCC in the country signed up to this month, which warned that without extra investment on Wednesday, up to 6,000 more police officers could be lost by 2020 and that usable resources are, in fact, a fraction of the figure that he keeps citing? If he thinks that the UK’s...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Football: Policing Costs (16 Nov 2017)

Louise Haigh: What recent discussions she has had with the Home Secretary on the cost to police forces of policing football matches outside the stadium.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Football: Policing Costs (16 Nov 2017)

Louise Haigh: I am very grateful for the Minister’s response. The cost to the Met of policing premier league football last year was almost £7 million, but the clubs contributed only £360,000. Given that they draw in more than £240 million every match day, is it not high time that premier league clubs were paying their full share to overstretched police forces?

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe (13 Nov 2017)

Louise Haigh: The right hon. Member for New Forest East (Dr Lewis) several times called Nazanin a hostage. Does the Secretary of State consider her to be a hostage?

Community Policing — [Ms Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (7 Nov 2017)

Louise Haigh: Will the Minister give way?

Community Policing — [Ms Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (7 Nov 2017)

Louise Haigh: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Dorries. I too congratulate the right hon. Member for Kingston and Surbiton (Sir Edward Davey) on securing the debate. I concur with him and with my right hon. Friend the Member for Wolverhampton South East (Mr McFadden) that policing and tackling crime are fundamental issues of social justice and equality. People are far more likely to...

Community Policing — [Ms Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (7 Nov 2017)

Louise Haigh: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. The neighbourhood policing model, which I will come on to, is not just a “nice to have”. It is a fundamental component of our policing model in this country. It is therefore completely disingenuous for the previous Home Secretary, now the Prime Minister, to tell the police that their only job is going out there and reducing and attacking crime....

Mental Health Education in Schools — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (6 Nov 2017)

Louise Haigh: My hon. Friend is being very generous with her time. As has been mentioned, a survey by HeaducationUK found that 75% of school leaders said they lacked the resources to meet the mental health needs of their pupils, citing the lack of training as one of the main contributing factors. I of course agree with the right hon. and learned Member for North East Hertfordshire (Sir Oliver Heald) that...

Mental Health Education in Schools — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (6 Nov 2017)

Louise Haigh: I congratulate my hon. Friend, who is making a compelling case and a thoroughly excellent speech; she has stolen nearly all the points I wanted to raise. She makes an important point about Ofsted and why it is wholly inappropriate to roll mental health education into PSHE. Ofsted mentioned PSHE provision in just 14% of its secondary school reports and only 8% of its primary school reports...

Sexual Harassment in Parliament (30 Oct 2017)

Louise Haigh: I draw the House to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. You, Mr Speaker, and many other Members have mentioned the fundamental imbalance between parliamentary staff and Members’ staff. The former have one employer and are members of recognised trade unions, if they wish to be. There is, however, an active and well-organised trade union representing...

Universal Credit Roll-Out (24 Oct 2017)

Louise Haigh: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Universal Credit Roll-Out (24 Oct 2017)

Louise Haigh: My hon. Friend makes the very important point that these policies are not accidental consequences, but something that is baked into the universal credit system. That is why it is not unreasonable to ask the Government to respond within three sitting days of last week’s Opposition day debate. Does she share my concerns that universal credit payments will be made to only one member of a...

Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill (20 Oct 2017)

Louise Haigh: I know that my hon. Friend the Member for Rhondda (Chris Bryant) is a particularly shy and retiring type, and I am sorry to do this to him, but I must congratulate him and thank him for the work that he has done. He made a powerful and compelling case for the Bill. I also thank and congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Halifax (Holly Lynch), who laid all the groundwork for the...

Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill (20 Oct 2017)

Louise Haigh: I could not agree more. This year has placed unprecedented demands on our emergency services, but, despite all the undeniable pressures that they are under because of a range of issues—with which I shall deal shortly—they have stepped up without fail, and we have seen them at their very best. Keith Palmer paid the ultimate price when defending us in this very building while we ran...

Grenfell Tower: Business of the House (19 Oct 2017)

Louise Haigh: The Leader of the House says that the Government are listening, but the only thing they did yesterday was scrap helpline charges. It frankly beggars belief that it takes an Opposition day debate for the Government to decide that 55p a minute is too much to charge cash-strapped people to call the very Department that is making them cash-strapped. The Secretary of State for Work and Pensions...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Police Funding (16 Oct 2017)

Louise Haigh: We know the pressures on police resources from a rise in violent crime, a huge increase in 999 and 101 calls, an unprecedented terrorist threat and a surge in non-crime demand because of mental health issues and missing persons. The police simply do not have the resources to respond to every report of crime. Were the Minister’s house burgled, how would he feel if the police did not show up?
