Human Rights: Kashmir (23 Sep 2021)

Jess Phillips: I thank the all-party group and its brilliant chair for bringing us a brilliant and balanced debate today, but without the brilliant persistence of the Kashmiri diaspora in this country we would not be here today. If the abuses happening in Kashmir were happening here and I were watching from afar, I would hope that I had the resilience and persistence that British Kashmiris have shown. I...

Baby Loss Awareness Week (23 Sep 2021)

Jess Phillips: I wish to raise a specific point about covid that I learned of from an obstetric consultant: the number of preemie births dramatically dropped during covid because women were at home. It was a doctor from Reading who told me this. He had to be dispatched somewhere else in the NHS because his services in dealing with premature babies were no longer needed as the number had dropped so greatly...

Violence Against Women and Girls: Police Response (22 Sep 2021)

Jess Phillips: Thank you, Mr Speaker. I welcome the new Minister to her place. The report from Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services highlights the continued staggering failures by the Government to protect women and girls adequately. We should not make any bones about what it actually says. Since Sarah Everard was killed, a further 78 women have been killed by men, and I...

Legacy of Jo Cox (9 Sep 2021)

Jess Phillips: While the hon. Gentleman is heaping out praise, let me refer back to what the right hon. Member for the royal town of Sutton Coldfield (Mr Mitchell) said earlier. I would not ever wish to speak for Jo, or ever claim that I could, but I know what she would be thinking at the moment and over the last few weeks: she would be heaping praise on the hon. Member for Tonbridge and Malling (Tom...

Legacy of Jo Cox (9 Sep 2021)

Jess Phillips: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Legacy of Jo Cox (9 Sep 2021)

Jess Phillips: Does my hon. Friend agree that, without question, everybody in here can understand how difficult this is for many of us, but also how much we delight in celebrating our friend whom we miss so dearly? Everybody will understand that some of us may need a little time in this debate.

Health and Social Care Levy (8 Sep 2021)

Jess Phillips: I notice from the right hon. Member’s entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests that he makes income via rentals, as many people in this House do. Does he think it is fair that, in what has been presented to us today, rental income for landlords is completely not within the remit of any take for this levy, so there will be care workers in South West Wiltshire who are paying...

Health and Social Care Levy (8 Sep 2021)

Jess Phillips: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Coronavirus: Vaccination (27 Aug 2021)

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Homelessness: Prisoners' Release (26 Jul 2021)

Jess Phillips: To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, whether the Government plans to bring into force all the provisions under the Homelessness Reduction Act 2017; and what assessment he has made of the potential merits of bringing forward legislative proposals to better meet the needs of homeless female prison leavers.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Coronavirus: Vaccination (23 Jul 2021)

Jess Phillips: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, if he will publish communications on the potential continued risk to immunocompromised and immunosuppressed groups who may not receive the same level of protection from the covid-19 vaccines as the general population.

Written Answers — Home Office: Migrants (23 Jul 2021)

Written Answers — Home Office: Migrants (23 Jul 2021)

Jess Phillips: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what steps she is taking to tackle the fear of reporting to the police faced by victims of domestic abuse with insecure immigration status, including through the establishment of a firewall.

Strategy for Tackling Violence Against Women and Girls (21 Jul 2021)

Jess Phillips: The first responsibility of any Government is the safety and security of their citizens. Today, rape prosecutions are at a record low, domestic abuse in this country is soaring and charging is falling. Sexual abuse in school is being normalised, according to the recent Ofsted inspections. Ending violence against women and girls is a cross-party issue. On both sides of this House, there is a...

Health and Care Bill (14 Jul 2021)

Jess Phillips: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Health and Care Bill (14 Jul 2021)

Jess Phillips: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Health and Care Bill (14 Jul 2021)

Jess Phillips: I just wanted to give the hon. Lady a bit more time. Does she agree that we would want to see more in this Bill on how social care is going to be accounted for? Currently, I feel that is lacking.

Higher Education (Freedom of Speech) Bill (12 Jul 2021)

Jess Phillips: I absolutely agree with lots of what has been said about how it is vital that we have robust debate. I am challenged daily by people in one forum or another—and, to be honest, that is the best part of my job. It is the bit that I like the most, and it is the bit that I would seek in our universities. I wonder if the Secretary of State remembers when, in his time in the Whips Office, one of...

Higher Education (Freedom of Speech) Bill (12 Jul 2021)

Jess Phillips: Will the Secretary of State give way?

Higher Education (Freedom of Speech) Bill (12 Jul 2021)

Jess Phillips: As the Secretary of State talks about people being scared on campus and what he has asked vice-chancellors to do, I wonder whether he has the data in front of him for sexual harassment and sexual violence cases, which are rife on our university campuses. On the deep principles that he holds, what exactly is he doing about that, and when can I expect a Bill on that? That is surely a principled...
