Trade Bill: Transfer Schemes (17 Jul 2018)

Judith Cummins: It is a pleasure to follow the Minister and to contribute to the Report stage of this important Bill. I rise to propose amendment 80, in my name and that of my hon. Friends, on the Trade Remedies Authority, and to speak to the other clauses and amendments in this group. Labour supports new clause 5 and our own amendment 5 on the implementation of a customs union with the EU. Labour’s...

Business of the House (5 Jul 2018)

Judith Cummins: A recent report found that 40% of the Government’s top 100 suppliers failed to meet the basic legal requirements of the Modern Slavery Act 2015. May we have a debate on modern slavery in supply chains, and on what progress the Government are making on ending extreme labour exploitation here and overseas?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Transport Infrastructure (5 Jul 2018)

Judith Cummins: In recent weeks we have seen endless delays, cancellations across the north and a report from the Select Committee on Transport that confirmed a bias against northern regions in rail investment decisions, and we now hear reports that the trans-Pennine electrification will be scrapped altogether. Will the Secretary of State now respond properly to the One North campaign and commit to giving...

Business of the House (28 Jun 2018)

Judith Cummins: The Transport Committee’s report out today confirms that regions such as Yorkshire and the Humber have not received a fair share of rail funding for years and that the formula used by the Department for Transport is unfair to northern regions. May we have a debate in Government time on what exactly the Government will do to remedy this unfair situation and give regions such as mine the...

International Trade: Exports in Global Markets (28 Jun 2018)

Judith Cummins: In May it was reported that the Department was to axe hundreds of jobs in trade promotion—up to 10% of the workforce. The Treasury has since hinted that additional funding is available to safeguard such jobs, but we have heard that the cuts are still happening. Surely the Secretary of State agrees that axing officials whose job is to promote British exports is not the best way to build...

NHS Long-Term Plan (18 Jun 2018)

Judith Cummins: Given the crisis in access to NHS dentistry, in particular for our children, will the Secretary of State confirm that dentistry will get its fair share of this funding in line with demand?

Petition - Menc Vaccine (14 Jun 2018)

Judith Cummins: My constituent, one-year-old Kia Gott, was diagnosed with meningitis C in September 2017 and has spent the past nine months in hospital. Her case was described by doctors as “one of the worst cases of meningitis” seen in 25 years. Kia lost all four limbs, may have lost her sight and hearing, and possibly has brain damage. I am pleased to say that Kia is making good progress and...

Business of the House (14 Jun 2018)

Judith Cummins: Last week, I was honoured to receive an award from the road safety charity, Brake, because of my work, alongside many others in this Chamber, on pushing the Government to implement tougher sentences for dangerous drivers. Will the Leader of the House answer a simple question that she failed to answer last week: on what date will this important legislation come into force?

Rail Timetabling (4 Jun 2018)

Judith Cummins: Does the Secretary of State understand the real human cost of this fiasco and the fact that every disrupted journey represents chaos for our constituents and losses for our businesses? He talked in his statement of major failures and holding the industry to account, but when will he take responsibility and hold himself to account over his repeated and major failures?

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

Judith Cummins: My hon. Friend is making an excellent speech. Staff in Bradford have real concern about the plans to create a wholly-owned company that could see 300 members of staff at Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust transferred out of the NHS, creating a two-tier workforce. Does she agree that we need to keep our health service, in the words of Unison’s campaign, 100% NHS?

International Trade: Leaving the EU: Women’s Rights (17 May 2018)

Judith Cummins: The Minister often remarks that trade has pulled millions of women out of poverty, but in the Trade Bill Committee the Government voted against ensuring that future trade deals fully comply with the convention on the elimination of all forms of discrimination against women. Has he changed his mind on this and, if so, will he ensure that future trade deals contain effective mechanisms that...

East Coast Main Line (16 May 2018)

Judith Cummins: The Secretary of State said in his statement that there is “no suggestion of either malpractice or malicious intent in what has happened.” Does he agree with me that what has happened smacks of a pattern of failure and incompetence, and that he, as the Secretary of State, should take responsibility?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Apprenticeship Starts (14 May 2018)

Judith Cummins: What assessment he has made of trends in the level of apprenticeship starts since the introduction of the apprenticeship levy.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Apprenticeship Starts (14 May 2018)

Judith Cummins: The Government say that they want 3 million new apprentices by 2020, but all the signs are that we are going in the wrong direction. Last year there were 70 fewer apprentice starts in my constituency than the year before, and nationally starts are down by 23%. Can the Minister tell us why that is? Do the Government agree with the British Chambers of Commerce that the apprenticeship levy is...

Business of the House (10 May 2018)

Judith Cummins: I recently visited the charity Carers’ Resource in Bradford. That charity, along with the 7 million unpaid carers for both the young and old across the UK, have been waiting since 2016 for the Government to publish a national carers strategy and action plan. Can the Leader of the House tell us when that report will be published, and will she grant Government time for us to discuss these...

Royal Assent: Private Members’ Bills: Money Resolutions (10 May 2018)

Judith Cummins: Does the Leader of the House not understand just how offensive it is to Members of this House that the Government are using a procedural device to block debate on this important Bill?

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (8 May 2018)

Judith Cummins: I welcome the recent news that NHS England has committed to redirecting extra funding for dental services to Bradford as an area of need—it comes after a high-profile campaign in the Bradford Telegraph and Argus—but I urge the Minister to recognise the need for long-term reform of the dental contract and for a sustainable funding settlement for all. Will he meet me and others...

Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill: Extent, commencement and short title (27 Apr 2018)

Judith Cummins: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker, for calling me to speak in this important debate. I pay tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Rhondda (Chris Bryant) for his work on the Bill so far, along with my hon. Friend the Member for Halifax (Holly Lynch). I know that time is short, but I wanted to share with the House my own experience. Last year, I joined West Yorkshire fire and rescue service and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (24 Apr 2018)

Judith Cummins: In October last year, the Government announced that they planned to increase the maximum penalty for death by dangerous driving. They also said that they would create a new offence of causing serious injury by careless driving. Six months on, we have still not seen any action. Will the Minister tell the House just when these vital changes will be implemented?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Future Accommodation Model (23 Apr 2018)

Judith Cummins: What recent steps his Department has taken to develop the future accommodation model.
