Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (16 Oct 2017)

Maria Caulfield: We have already heard this afternoon that mopeds are being increasingly used in daring and violent crimes by criminals who know they will not be pursued because police officers face prosecution if an accident occurs. Will the Home Secretary support the Police Federation’s call for a change in the law so that the police are free to chase criminals using mopeds?

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

Maria Caulfield: The hon. Gentleman talks about consensus and agreement, but that is exactly what we reached during that Opposition day debate, and Opposition Members are still not happy.

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

Maria Caulfield: I spoke in the NHS debate in favour of the motion, so I was very pleased that the Government supported it. I can only assume that Opposition Members are so unhappy because they lost an opportunity to beat the Government with a political stick.

Race Disparity Audit: Bombardier (10 Oct 2017)

Maria Caulfield: Will the Government consider stepping in to support the workers in Northern Ireland who are affected by Boeing’s decision in the same way as they stepped in to support the workers during the Tata Steel dispute?

Race Disparity Audit (10 Oct 2017)

Maria Caulfield: I am sorry that the shadow Front-Bench team find this issue so amusing.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Nursing (10 Oct 2017)

NHS Pay (13 Sep 2017)

Maria Caulfield: I declare an interest as a nurse who has worked for over 20 years in the NHS, and who still works as a nurse on my hospital bank.

Inflation is now close to 3%, so it is becoming increasingly difficult. Seven...

NHS Pay (13 Sep 2017)

Maria Caulfield: I really welcome the news that the Select Committee is going to do a review of nursing. Will the Committee look into pay structure? The current Agenda for Change structure is being used by some trusts, in hospitals and communities, as a way of downgrading nursing roles.
