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

Justin Madders: My constituent Lisa Conway recently experienced a burglary at her home. The police ascertained that access was gained to the property by using force to prise open a window. However, her insurance company, Policy Expert, refused to help because it said “forcible and violent” entry was not used to access her property. So may we have a debate on how we can stop companies such as...

NHS Whistleblowers (18 Jul 2018)

Justin Madders: It is, as always, a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Davies. I congratulate the hon. Member for Central Ayrshire (Dr Whitford) on securing the debate and on her powerful and knowledgeable contribution. As always, she drew on her many years of experience in the national health service. She listed a series of scandals in the NHS and raised themes common to them all. They lasted...

NHS Whistleblowers (18 Jul 2018)

Justin Madders: That is an important point; we should see reporting issues such as staffing levels as something that would not be such a big deal. As is happening in Scotland, the safe levels should be ingrained not only into law, but into the culture of the workplace. In conclusion, I repeat the same point that I made when the recent statutory instrument was discussed: that we now have a two-tier...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Cross-border Rail Services (18 Jul 2018)

Justin Madders: What discussions he has had with the Secretary of State for Transport on improving cross-border rail services to and from Wales; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Cross-border Rail Services (18 Jul 2018)

Justin Madders: People in Neston are concerned that the rail timetable to be introduced by the new operator on the Wrexham to Bidston line may lead to an inferior service on the English side of the border. When I asked the Rail Minister about that recently, he told me that it was the Welsh Assembly’s responsibility, not his; but my constituents have no representation there. Who is accountable for...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Taylor Review of Modern Working Practices (17 Jul 2018)

Justin Madders: I am sure that the whole House will join me in wishing my hon. Friend the Member for North West Durham (Laura Pidcock) all the best during her maternity leave. As we know, the Taylor review failed to offer much protection for those in the gig economy who are pregnant. The Government’s earlier Deane review on self-employment made recommendations on equalising maternity allowance, but...

Backbench Business: Defined-benefit Pension Schemes (10 Jul 2018)

Justin Madders: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Crewe and Nantwich (Laura Smith) on securing the debate and the excellent way in which she introduced it. Once again, she has proved to be a formidable advocate for her constituents. I do not intend to cover the same ground but will instead raise an issue facing one of my...

Leaving the EU (9 Jul 2018)

Justin Madders: We know that on Friday night the entire Cabinet supported the Prime Minister’s position, but as of today, that is no longer the case for two of her now former colleagues. Can she tell us what further information has come to light in the intervening period to cause her colleagues to change their minds?

Health and Social Care (National Data Guardian) Bill (6 Jul 2018)

Justin Madders: I congratulate the hon. Member for Wellingborough (Mr Bone) on his success in making progress on this Bill in pretty quick time—as he candidly said, quicker than some other private Members’ Bills, which may well be down to the Government’s view on the merits of particular Bills. As the hon. Gentleman said, there are other Bills that we would like to see make progress, but...

Health and Social Care (National Data Guardian) Bill (6 Jul 2018)

Justin Madders: The hon. Gentleman is absolutely right that there are many variations in conditions and, indeed, outcomes throughout the whole country. The importance of data in establishing patterns cannot be understated.

Health and Social Care (National Data Guardian) Bill (6 Jul 2018)

Justin Madders: Whenever we speak to anyone in the NHS, particularly GPs, they express concern about form filling, but it is important that due processes are followed and that there is a clear audit line. I am sure that the hon. Gentleman can have a word with the Minister about what practical steps can be taken to deal with some of the British Heart Foundation’s concerns. We support the establishment...

Business of the House (5 Jul 2018)

Justin Madders: On Tuesday a member of staff at the Countess of Chester hospital was arrested following the investigation of a number of unexplained deaths in the neonatal unit. Anyone who has attended baby loss debates in the House will know that it is impossible to overestimate how traumatic the loss of a newborn is, which is why I was so disgusted to hear of the doorstepping of my constituents by members...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Passenger Rail Usage (5 Jul 2018)

Justin Madders: What recent assessment he has made of trends in passenger rail usage.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Passenger Rail Usage (5 Jul 2018)

Justin Madders: After years of campaigning, my constituents in Neston were delighted when they heard that the new Borderlands franchise would include a half-hourly service on the Wrexham to Bidston line. However, that joy was tempered somewhat with the news that the new service might not stop at every station. Given that a frequent and reliable service is vital for the residents of Neston, will the Minister...

Estimates Day: Department for Education (3 Jul 2018)

Justin Madders: I first declare an interest: my wife is the cabinet member for children and young people at Cheshire West and Chester Council and two of my children attend a local school in the constituency. The recently published University College London Institute of Education report showed a relationship between inspection grades and changes in the socioeconomic composition of pupils. That means,...

Estimates Day: Department for Education (3 Jul 2018)

Justin Madders: I thank my hon. Friend, who is absolutely right. I know from talking to parents, teachers and heads in my constituency that schools are already facing very tough choices. The National Education Union survey told us that 55% of schools that responded said that class sizes had risen in the past year and that more than three quarters had reported cuts in spending on books and equipment. The...

Healthcare on English Islands — [David Hanson in the Chair] (27 Jun 2018)

Justin Madders: It is, as always, a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hanson. I congratulate the hon. Member for Isle of Wight (Mr Seely) on securing the debate and on his very knowledgeable presentation of his constituents’ concerns and views. It is clear that health services on the Isle of Wight face challenges that, as he eloquently set out, are unique and require a tailored approach....

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Academy Trusts (25 Jun 2018)

Justin Madders: What steps he is taking to respond to poorly performing academy trusts.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Academy Trusts (25 Jun 2018)

Justin Madders: I thank the Department and the Secretary of State for agreeing to meet me and colleagues last week to discuss our concerns about the performance of the University of Chester Academies Trust. Now that they have heard our concerns, can the Minister assure us that they will deal with these matters as swiftly as possible?

Insecure Work and the Gig Economy (20 Jun 2018)

Justin Madders: Will the Minister give way?
