Esa Underpayments: Business of the House (19 Jul 2018)

Maggie Throup: Official figures show that house building is booming in Erewash, with the number of completed homes up by 75% and the number of homes under construction up by 70% on the previous year. Does my right hon. Friend agree that this is a vindication of the Government’s housing policy and that it is good news not only for those in the construction industry in Erewash but for those who aspire...

Esa Underpayments (19 Jul 2018)

Maggie Throup: May I wish my hon. Friend a very happy birthday? I commend her for finding this issue, moving it on, and getting a solution to it. Does she recognise the important role that so many employers are playing in signing up to the Disability Confident scheme and recognising that people with disabilities are an important part of our workforce for the future?

Exiting the European Union: Industrial Chemicals Regulation (19 Jul 2018)

Maggie Throup: What progress he has made in negotiations on ensuring continued co-operation with the EU on the regulation of industrial chemicals after the UK leaves the EU.

Exiting the European Union: Industrial Chemicals Regulation (19 Jul 2018)

Maggie Throup: I thank the Minister for that answer. Much of Britain’s manufacturing and engineering sector relies heavily on an uninterrupted supply of industrial chemicals, which are used on the production line to carry out processes such as non-destructive testing. Will my hon. Friend update the House on what progress has been made in negotiations with the EU on the REACH regulations? Will he...

Nato Summit (16 Jul 2018)

Maggie Throup: The UK is acknowledged to be at the forefront of defence modernisation. Is my right hon. Friend confident that other NATO members are ready to modernise, too?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Youth Justice System (10 Jul 2018)

Maggie Throup: What steps the Government are taking to reform the youth justice system.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Youth Justice System (10 Jul 2018)

Maggie Throup: I also welcome my hon. Friend to his new role. Does he agree that, although these reforms are welcome, they form only part of the solution? Can he outline what work his Department is doing to support community-based projects, which can play a crucial part in preventing more young people from entering the youth justice system in the first place?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Defence Exports (9 Jul 2018)

Maggie Throup: What steps he is taking to encourage defence exports by UK companies.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Defence Exports (9 Jul 2018)

Maggie Throup: While we hear much about the physical exports manufactured by Chemring Defence in my constituency, among other companies, what more is being done to export British military skills and training, which are the envy of the world, so that we ensure that operational equipment that is exported from the UK is used in accordance with our specific aims?

Prisons (Interference with Wireless Telegraphy) Bill (6 Jul 2018)

Maggie Throup: It is a pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Cheadle (Mary Robinson). I can add another 10 years to hers; I first owned a mobile phone 30 years ago. Whether it was 20 or 30 years ago, however, we must remember that they were just phones then. They were not devices with apps and various other things; technology has changed so much and we need to ensure the legislation keeps up...

Prisons (Interference with Wireless Telegraphy) Bill (6 Jul 2018)

Maggie Throup: I thank my hon. Friend for that clarification. The absence today of Scottish National party Members is notable and might suggest they are not as concerned as we are about the security of our prison officers and of prisoners who want to be rehabilitated.

Prisons (Interference with Wireless Telegraphy) Bill (6 Jul 2018)

Maggie Throup: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention. I was looking across the Chamber at the SNP Benches, not behind me; I know that we have representation from the devolved nation of Scotland here today. In summary, this is a well-considered Bill that will improve the security of our prisons for both prisoners and prison staff. It will also strike a blow to serious and organised crime by...

Amesbury Incident (5 Jul 2018)

Maggie Throup: From the statement today and statements after the March incident, it is quite clear that our agencies are world-leading and well recognised as being so throughout the world. Will the Secretary of State reassure the House that those agencies will have all the resources that they need to get to the bottom of this situation?

Construction Sector Deal (5 Jul 2018)

Maggie Throup: When we consider construction, we often think about only what we see above ground. Saint-Gobain and Stanton Bonna in my constituency make pressed concrete and cast pipework. Can the Minister reassure the House that his statement on the construction sector deal will benefit all aspects of construction, whether invisible or visible?

Business of the House (5 Jul 2018)

Maggie Throup: I am delighted to inform the House that Erewash has topped the Which? magazine food hygiene survey, with 97% of medium and high-risk food retailers now compliant. Does my right hon. Friend agree that this is a significant achievement both for the food inspection and enforcement team at Erewash Borough Council and for local food retailers in my constituency? Will she consider holding a debate...

Universal Credit (5 Jul 2018)

Maggie Throup: Jobcentre staff across my constituency where universal credit has already been fully rolled out inform me that claimants are more likely to get into work as a result of being on universal credit. Is that a trend across the country, because that would mean it is really good that we are rolling it out, at whatever speed that might be?

Estimates Day: Department for Education (3 Jul 2018)

Maggie Throup: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Birmingham, Edgbaston (Preet Kaur Gill), although it will come as no surprise that I really do not agree with her analysis of the situation. There is perhaps no more important issue that we consider on the Floor of the House than the future of our children. I therefore commend the Government’s efforts to reform the schools funding formula...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (2 Jul 2018)

Maggie Throup: Will my hon. Friend outline what official support is available to families when one parent is unexpectedly unable to work because of a serious illness such as cancer? Does this support apply to claimants who are employed and self-employed?

Backbench Business - Improving Air Qualitybackbench Business (28 Jun 2018)

Maggie Throup: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Luton North (Kelvin Hopkins), who has great knowledge of this area. I am delighted to speak in this debate, partly because I was a member of the joint inquiry that produced the report, but also because my family has been affected by a lung condition of unknown origin. My mother suffered from idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, a life-limiting...

Nuclear Sector Deal (28 Jun 2018)

Maggie Throup: I too welcome today’s announcement. Will the Minister do whatever he can to back the new industrial research and development advanced manufacturing research centre site planned for Derby’s Infinity Park, located alongside the global headquarters for Rolls-Royce, which already leads the way in small modular reactors?
