Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Modern Slavery (6 Jul 2015)

Jess Phillips: Considering the thousands of victims of trafficking who have gone through the NRM, will the Home Secretary tell the House how many human trafficking-related convictions there were in the last 12 months? How does that figure fit with the Prime Minister’s assertion that we are tackling those who commit these crimes?

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

Jess Phillips: In a feminist debate, I am going to say, Ms Deputy Speaker, that I congratulate all those who have made their maiden speeches, and I remind Members that when we say “maiden”, what we mean is someone who is inexperienced. So that is another example of sexist language that gets used. I wonder whether Ms Deputy Speaker has read Caitlin Moran’s book, “How to be a Woman”. In it, she...

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

Jess Phillips: To the best of my knowledge, the answer is no. I believe that the council is selling the family silver, including the National Exhibition Centre, to settle those claims. I will not criticise it for that. The council should have paid the women more in the first place. The hon. Gentleman is right about overtime. The reason my husband earned so much more than me was that his overtime was paid,...

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

Jess Phillips: According to the Women’s Aid annual survey last year, on one single day there were 132 women aged 18 to 20 living in refuge after being attacked, assaulted and in some cases raped. Will the Chancellor guarantee for me and those women that those living in supported accommodation like refuge will not be included in his Government’s plans to remove housing benefit from those aged 18 to 21,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (15 Jun 2015)

Jess Phillips: I have worked with lots of children who have suffered domestic violence, rape, grooming and exploitation, and I have seen the damage it does to their lives. When will the Government respond to the Education Committee’s fifth report from the last Session and the recommendation that the Department for Education should “develop a workplan for introducing age-appropriate…SRE— sex and...

Debate on the Address: Home Affairs and Justice (28 May 2015)

Jess Phillips: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker, for giving me the opportunity to make my maiden speech. This is the first time I have been called a maiden, and it seems a little unusual as my children watch me from the Strangers Gallery.
