Business of the House (13 Dec 2018)

Jess Phillips: Thank you, Mr Speaker. “She’s so cute. So sweet. I can’t wait to beat her.” “Can she take a beating?” Those are not my words, but the words of the hon. Member for Burton (Andrew Griffiths) while barraging two of his female constituents with thousands of sexual text messages. Last night, the Leader of the House’s party gave him and the hon. Member for Dover (Charlie Elphicke)...

Business of the House (13 Dec 2018)

Jess Phillips: indicated assent.

Exiting the European Union (10 Dec 2018)

Jess Phillips: Does the Prime Minister think that going back and changing minutiae about the backstop will actually make any difference to the kind of people on the Government Benches who like to go around calling themselves Aslan and circle around her head caring nothing for this country, only their own position? This backstop rejig can-kicking will make absolutely no difference to those people and they...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Rough Sleeping (10 Dec 2018)

Jess Phillips: What steps his Department is taking to support people sleeping rough at Christmas 2018.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Rough Sleeping (10 Dec 2018)

Jess Phillips: I thank the Minister for his answer. I wonder whether he could answer me a simple question. I would appreciate a one-word answer, as I am sure Mr Speaker will. The rough sleeping headcount in Birmingham took place last week. The figures are yet to be revealed. Does the Minister think that they will have gone up or down?

Gender Pay Gap (5 Dec 2018)

Jess Phillips: Does the hon. Lady agree that one way we could stop some of these problems with the gap between men and women would be to pay men more to stay off work? If we gave men 90% of their pay for the first six weeks of their baby’s life, as we do with women, it might encourage a different atmosphere. Does she agree?

Gender Pay Gap (5 Dec 2018)

Jess Phillips: My husband has kids.

Offensive Weapons Bill: Report on the use of air weapons (28 Nov 2018)

Jess Phillips: The hon. Gentleman may well be coming on to this, but I thank him for giving way. I wonder what evidence he wants if evidence from one of the most senior counter-terrorist police officers in our country is not good enough for him. I wonder why he feels that he maybe knows more about these weapons than they do.

Courts and Tribunals (Judiciary and Functions of Staff) Bill [Lords] (27 Nov 2018)

Jess Phillips: Does my hon. Friend share my concern about always listening to eminent legal practitioners in the Lords? I am certain that, quite recently, they have made some mistakes.

Courts and Tribunals (Judiciary and Functions of Staff) Bill [Lords] (27 Nov 2018)

Jess Phillips: Those of us who have campaigned were expecting to see in the Bill some of the things that have been promised, such as the banning of cross-examination. Senior members of the judiciary have themselves called for that measure, but find that current legislation ties their hands. Given that it is not in this Bill, I am certain that Ministers will tell us that it will be in the domestic abuse Bill...

Jess Phillips: rose—

EU Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice: Education Funding (13 Nov 2018)

Jess Phillips: I’m really cross.

EU Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice: Education Funding (13 Nov 2018)

Jess Phillips: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Bill Presented: Bullying and Harassment: Cox Report (5 Nov 2018)

Jess Phillips: It is an honour to follow the hon. Member for Chichester (Gillian Keegan)—I will call her my hon. Friend—and I think she made some important points. I want to start by saying that I have absolutely every faith in the Leader of the House’s commitment to make the situation better. I also have every faith in the new Chair of the Committee on Standards, my hon. Friend the Member for...

Bill Presented: Bullying and Harassment: Cox Report (5 Nov 2018)

Jess Phillips: I thank the Leader of the House for that answer. I think some real clarity going forward about what we as parliamentarians in this place will and will not accept should certainly be part of how we improve something that I think we have already improved. As somebody who has been a critic of this place and some of the people in it, I want to say that I think that we have tried to make real...

Universal Credit (5 Nov 2018)

Jess Phillips: It is a miracle that someone who has had no social mobility and has lived on benefits can be called in the House, but I managed to make it here on those legacy benefits, and managed to get the same fancy job as the Members over there, so I am not sure what they are talking about. I want to ask the Secretary of State about my constituent who was raped by the man with whom she lived and who...

Leaving the Eu: Rights of EU Citizens (5 Nov 2018)

Jess Phillips: I wonder whether the Minister can answer for me the question already put by my hon. Friend the Member for Sheffield Central (Paul Blomfield) about the charges for EU citizens who have been trafficked here. What assessment has the Home Office made of the number of women trafficked for sex from Romania and whether we will now be charging them for the fact that they have been abused?
