Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Knife Crime (16 Jul 2018)

Vicky Foxcroft: This Wednesday, the Youth Violence Commission will publish its interim policy report. Last year, knife crime increased by 22% and, in London, we have had another tragic spate of stabbings over the weekend. We must urgently seek long-term solutions. Will the Secretary of State commit to engaging with the recommendations of the cross-party Youth Violence Commission?

Business of the House (12 Jul 2018)

Vicky Foxcroft: The cross-party Youth Violence Commission is publishing its interim report next Wednesday. Will the Leader of the House commit to reading its recommendations and help me to secure the required debates in Parliament with all the relevant Departments on this extremely important issue?

Immigration: Pausing the Hostile Environment (12 Jul 2018)

Vicky Foxcroft: Many of my constituents in Lewisham and Deptford have been victims of the hostile environment for far too long, waiting years for visas, not having service standards met and not being able to get any sort of update from the Home Office. Does the Minister accept that pausing the hostile environment is far too little and too late for many of my constituents, and should not the Government now be...

Business of the House (28 Jun 2018)

Vicky Foxcroft: Last week I asked the Leader of the House to outline how the Government would update us on progress on their serious violence strategy. She was not entirely sure on how but said that they would do so. As part of the early intervention and prevention aspect of the work, can we have a debate on adverse childhood experiences?

Offensive Weapons Bill (27 Jun 2018)

Vicky Foxcroft: On the subject of a victims law, Sharon Fearon is the mother of Shaquan, a young boy who was murdered in my constituency, and there was never a conviction in that case. Sharon and I met Minister after Minister, including the Attorney General, and the one thing we were promised was that there would be a victims law and that their voices would be heard.

Royal Assent: NHS Outsourcing and Privatisation (23 May 2018)

Vicky Foxcroft: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Royal Assent: NHS Outsourcing and Privatisation (23 May 2018)

Vicky Foxcroft: I thank my hon. Friend. He is right: the candidate in Lewisham East will absolutely be campaigning on that, because it is out of order and outrageous that many of the people working under that contract are not receiving pay for one week because Interserve is not paying them.

Social Justice Commission: Serious Violence Strategy (22 May 2018)

Vicky Foxcroft: I want to begin by thanking the Minister for finally providing the time to debate this extremely important issue. It might interest the right hon. Member for South Holland and The Deepings (Mr Hayes) to know that I have been requesting this debate since 22 March, and I am grateful to everyone in the Chamber who also requested such a debate on 19 April. The Government’s strategy was...

Social Justice Commission: Serious Violence Strategy (22 May 2018)

Vicky Foxcroft: I thank the right hon. Gentleman, and I think this is probably one area where we would have a cross-party consensus. Some other clear themes emerged from the commission’s evidence sessions and the visits that I undertook. The Government’s serious violence strategy has much that aligns with our work, particularly a focus on early intervention, which is crucial. Many young people...

Business of the House (10 May 2018)

Vicky Foxcroft: I am feeling extremely frustrated. There were two shootings in my constituency this weekend. What are the Government doing about this? They say they have published a serious violence strategy, yet time and again we have asked questions here about when we will be able to debate that strategy. So my question is very simple: when will we have that promised debate here?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Probation Services: Reoffending Rates (24 Apr 2018)

Vicky Foxcroft: In 2015, the Government commissioned two important reviews: the Dame Sally Coates review of education in prisons, which was mentioned earlier; and the Charlie Taylor review of the youth justice system. Both reviews highlighted basic failures in the current system and made important recommendations. Will the Minister tell me how many of those recommendations have been implemented?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Business of the House (19 Apr 2018)

Vicky Foxcroft: I echo the calls from the right hon. Member for South Holland and The Deepings (Mr Hayes) and my hon. Friend the Member for Gedling (Vernon Coaker) for us to have a debate on youth violence and the Government’s serious violence strategy. It might be helpful if I remind the Leader of the House of her comments on 29 March. On the strategy being published, she said: “It will be...

Fishing: East Anglia: Austerity: Life Expectancy (18 Apr 2018)

Vicky Foxcroft: The hon. Gentleman talked about it being simplistic to talk about the cuts, austerity and so forth, but let us talk, for example, about the cost of a pupil going to a pupil referral unit being 10 times more expensive, or the cost of someone in prison being £35,000 per year. If we invested such money earlier in education, mental health support or support for our young people, we would...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (16 Apr 2018)

Vicky Foxcroft: Mr Speaker, you will remember that on 29 March, the Leader of the House said that we would have a debate in Parliament on the Government’s serious violence strategy when it was published. It was published on 9 April, so my question is simple: when will we have that debate?

Easter Adjournment (29 Mar 2018)

Vicky Foxcroft: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Harrow East (Bob Blackman), who has done such fantastic work on the Homelessness Reduction Act 2017. I also wish him good luck for his Adjournment debate; I am sure that he will not stop until he is successful. Before we adjourn for the Easter recess, I want to use this opportunity to raise two interlinked issues, both of which are incredibly...
