Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Matt Warman: We have heard many people talk in this debate about the work of Jobcentre Plus, and I begin by paying tribute to the brilliant workers whom we have all met in our local Jobcentre Plus offices. They go the extra mile every day to try to find work for our constituents, many of whom live in deprived conditions and have genuine challenges. In agricultural areas such as mine, many people have had...

Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Matt Warman: I represent a deprived coastal constituency. I must say, both personally and on behalf of many of my colleagues on the Government Benches, that the idea that we do not listen to our constituents or see the experiences that the hon. Gentleman sees, and the idea that he has a monopoly on compassion, is profoundly offensive.

Written Answers — Department of Health: Nurses (17 Oct 2017)

Matt Warman: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, how many nurses were working on NHS wards in (a) May 2010 and (b) September 2017.

Iran (16 Oct 2017)

Matt Warman: Much as many might wish it to, what the JCPOA proscribes is very tight and does not cover things such as ballistic missiles or human rights. Will the Minister outline why such tight proscription is in fact in our interest and Iran’s? The wider we range on issues such as this, the harder it will be to strike any deal.

Written Answers — Department for International Trade: Exports (12 Oct 2017)

Matt Warman: To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, what recent assessment he has made of trends in demand for UK exports.

Government Policy on the Proceedings of the House (10 Oct 2017)

Matt Warman: On a simple point of fact, the announcement on the public sector pay cap was a written ministerial statement. It is important that we do not pretend otherwise and that a Government who use legitimate procedures are not misrepresented.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (9 Oct 2017)

Matt Warman: I recently met the excellent local branch of the charity, Scope, in Boston. It praised the Government’s work on changing the testing regime for those with long-term conditions, but asked what progress the Government are making on their continued bid to simplify the bureaucracy of the forms and the application process for benefits to which people are entitled?

Schools: National Funding Formula: General Election Campaign: Abuse and Intimidation (14 Sep 2017)

Matt Warman: “Where’s my shotgun?” Those were the words I heard from the receptionist at a venue where I held a surgery a year to the day after the murder of Jo Cox. I should confess that my reaction was to think of it as just another example of the casual contempt with which many members of the public treat politicians in this day and age. Wrongly, I rather brushed off the comment,...

Schools: National Funding Formula: General Election Campaign: Abuse and Intimidation (14 Sep 2017)

Matt Warman: Absolutely. Although we would never seek to end the debate on Facebook, if the hon. Gentleman sees what I mean, we must acknowledge that some of those debates will ultimately end with a vote in this Chamber. That is the case that we as politicians must continually make. I do not pretend for a moment that we will ever convince everyone to be nice or to agree with us on the internet—nor...

Schools: National Funding Formula (14 Sep 2017)

Matt Warman: I welcome the engagement of the Secretary of State and the Minister with responsibility for schools in this process over many years. Lincolnshire, as the Secretary of State knows, is one of the most challenged areas when it comes to school funding, but will she confirm that this new funding formula pays particular attention to the kind of challenges that we see in coastal communities? As she...

Business of the House (Today): Nomination of Members to Committees (12 Sep 2017)

Matt Warman: I entered the Chamber this evening thinking, like my hon. Friend the Member for Broxbourne (Mr Walker), that this was a lot of hot air—that this was a fuss about nothing because, self-evidently, the Conservative party has a working majority on the Floor of the House of Commons. Not only has the Conservative party won every single vote in this House since the election and demonstrated a...

Business of the House (Today): Nomination of Members to Committees (12 Sep 2017)

Matt Warman: I want to agree with my hon. Friend that we should not get too wound up and should just carry on, but I cannot when we are being accused by Opposition parties of seeking to fundamentally subvert democracy. What subverts democracy fundamentally are Opposition parties of whatever flavour that want to use this as a pretext to grind the process of leaving the EU to a halt and to grind the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (6 Sep 2017)

Matt Warman: Britain is among the world’s leading digital economies, and as we leave the European Union technology will be crucial for a successful Brexit and for dealing with issues from the Northern Irish border to customs controls. Does the Prime Minister agree that Brexit can kick-start a further wave of digital investment and that working with the industry through a Brexit technology taskforce...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Offenders: Education and Employment (5 Sep 2017)

Matt Warman: What steps the Government are taking to improve offenders’ access to education and employment.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Offenders: Education and Employment (5 Sep 2017)

Matt Warman: Category D prisons often have the very best examples of rehabilitation as they prepare to let their prisoners back into the community. North Sea Camp in my constituency has worked with the council not only on that rehabilitative work to prepare prisoners for work but, for example, on fly-tipping, saving the taxpayer £300,000. Does the Minister agree that the other prisons in the sector...

Pensions (19 Jul 2017)

Matt Warman: I pay tribute to the Cridland report, which is, in part, as excellent as it is because John Cridland was educated at Boston Grammar School in my constituency. Does the Secretary of State agree that by taking responsible, brave decisions, and having reviews such as the Cridland review, we avoid the situation that countries such as Italy find themselves in, where the pension age has to be...

Taylor Review: Working Practices (11 Jul 2017)

Matt Warman: If one talks to drivers for Uber or cleaners using platforms such as Hassle, they will largely acknowledge the benefits of flexibility to them. To coin a phrase, would it not be morally unacceptable to misread the 21st-century labour market and construct a set of rules that forced those people out of work, rather than allowing them to stay in it?
