Independent Complaints and Grievance Policy (16 Nov 2017)

Jess Phillips: I welcome the Leader of the House’s statement, although I notice from having quickly read through it, as well as having listened to it, that it does not use the term “sexual harassment” once. I therefore support what the shadow Leader of the House said in encouraging the Leader of the House to ensure that there is a specialist sexual violence service that gives advice to the...

Sexual Harassment and Violence in Schools (2 Nov 2017)

Jess Phillips: It is a real honour to both follow and work with the right hon. Friend the Member for Basingstoke (Mrs Miller). She has outlined exactly where the problems exist, what the Select Committee found and the areas in which we still have so much progress to make. I have worked in this area, including by delivering sex and relationships education in schools, for many years. I have written...

Sexual Harassment and Violence in Schools (2 Nov 2017)

Jess Phillips: I have been told that, because so many Members wish to speak, I should not take interventions. I am very sorry about that. I say to the Minister for Apprenticeships and Skills, who I know deeply cares both about the culture here and the culture in our schools, that getting SRE right does not need to take the length of time proposed. This is not something new; it exists in schools, but is...

Sexual Harassment in Parliament (30 Oct 2017)

Jess Phillips: I welcome what has been said here today, and I look forward to working with you, Mr Speaker, on the reference group on this issue. As I rushed in here for this statement, I overheard two male colleagues walking through the halls wittering about a witch hunt that was going on in Parliament. We in this building must think of this not as a party political thing, but as something that absolutely...

Modern Slavery Act 2015 (26 Oct 2017)

Jess Phillips: I thank hon. Members who brought this issue to the Backbench Business Committee—actually, I was on both sides; I just realised as I was saying it that I was thanking myself twice—as it is really important that we debate it. Prior to coming to this House, I ran one of the services that operates safe houses and community-based support for victims of modern slavery. We largely...

Business of the House (26 Oct 2017)

Jess Phillips: I welcome the comments of the Leader of the House on the difference between this Government’s and the last Labour Government’s commitment to women. Would she like a comparative debate? If not, could we have a debate on the rape clause? Could we have a debate on the rise in maternity discrimination due to court charges for women? Could we have a debate on the one in four women who...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Universal Credit (26 Oct 2017)

Jess Phillips: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, pursuant to the Answer of 20 October 2017 to Question 108338, on universal credit, what information his Department holds on split payments for universal credit.

Social Care: Supported Housing (25 Oct 2017)

Jess Phillips: I also welcome the announcements. I think I have asked for the local housing allowance rate to be removed in the mind of policy makers from supported housing every single time I have spoken in this House, so I am pretty chuffed that that was finally heard. The hon. Member for Walsall North (Eddie Hughes) is a passionate speaker, and it is nice to hear somebody in the House who sounds a bit...

Social Care: Supported Housing (25 Oct 2017)

Jess Phillips: And we would need an additional 300 to get anywhere close to dealing with the problem.

Social Care: Supported Housing (25 Oct 2017)

Jess Phillips: I have lived there all my life and have worked in homelessness services for most of my adult life, and I can absolutely guarantee that right now it is worse than I have ever known it. For me to say otherwise and be positive about the situation would be to tell a lie, and I am not willing to do that. Given my own experiences, it will be no surprise that I am going to stick up for refuge...

Jess Phillips: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, pursuant to the Answer of 16 October 2017 to Question 106034, on universal credit, for what reason that data is not available; and whether his Department has plans to make that data available.

Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Jess Phillips: The suggestion that I would like to add to that list—I wonder if the hon. Gentleman agrees with me—is that the Department might start to monitor whether people have requested split payments, which were put in place by campaigners like me to ensure that victims of domestic violence can access any of their finances. At the moment, under the current system, they have to admit it in...
