Upcoming Business – Commons: Main Chamber (24 Jul 2018)

Details to be provided – Helen Whately. Ten Minute Rule Motion

Public Bill Committee: Voyeurism (Offences) (No. 2) Bill: Voyeurism: additional offences (12 Jul 2018)

Helen Whately: I rise to speak briefly on the question of motive, which we are all clearly thinking about. Although there is widespread support for the Bill, this is an important question on the detail. I certainly feel that the weight of evidence we heard was on the side of victims, and victims arguing that motive should not matter. If someone were a victim of upskirting, whatever the reason for doing it,...

Eu: Future Relationship White Paper (12 Jul 2018)

Helen Whately: I, too, welcome my right hon. Friend to his post. I have noticed that today he has had to field questions about the Government’s future negotiating strategy which it would clearly not have been in the national interest for him to answer. Does he agree that, even during passionate debates like this, we must put our country first, not our party or any personal ambitions?

The Secretary of State’S Handling of Universal Credit (11 Jul 2018)

Helen Whately: A constituent of mine recently asked when they would be able to move on to universal credit because they had heard very good things about the support and flexibility it could provide. Is it not important to continue to roll out universal credit to give more people the opportunity to go on to a better benefit?

Public Bill Committee: Voyeurism (Offences) (No. 2) Bill: Examination of Witness (10 Jul 2018)

Helen Whately: Q You have talked very helpfully about avoiding unnecessary criminalisation of young people. That is helpful because some witnesses have argued for a more heavy-handed approach, with a much more blanket criminalisation of people. It would be helpful if you said more about the consequences of criminalising a young person when, in some of the circumstances you have described, they might not...

Public Bill Committee: Voyeurism (Offences) (No. 2) Bill: Examination of Witness (10 Jul 2018)

Helen Whately: Thank you, Sir Roger. Maria, you described a scenario in which somebody would be seeking financial gratification and therefore, you believe, would not be picked up by the current drafting of the Bill. You described somebody selling the image on to an online site to receive £100 for doing so. Could you say what you believe the customers of that online site would be seeking if they were...

Public Bill Committee: Voyeurism (Offences) (No. 2) Bill: Examination of Witness (10 Jul 2018)

Helen Whately: Q But you talked specifically about somebody being paid for the image, so one imagines that someone is then paying to use the site, and what would the customer of the site be paying for if it was not sexual gratification?

Public Bill Committee: Voyeurism (Offences) (No. 2) Bill: Examination of Witness (10 Jul 2018)

Helen Whately: I want to raise a couple of things. First, you said that you have been hearing from hundreds of women. Is it your impression that this is happening all the time on a daily basis and really is extensive? As Gillian said, many people had not even heard of this until your campaign, but it seems to have suddenly brought something into the open. Is it your impression that it is really quite common...

Public Bill Committee: Voyeurism (Offences) (No. 2) Bill: Examination of Witness (10 Jul 2018)

Helen Whately: Q It is also why you want to see action taken quickly on this, rather than solve a bigger problem.

Public Bill Committee: Voyeurism (Offences) (No. 2) Bill: Examination of Witness (10 Jul 2018)

Helen Whately: Q You talk about closing the loophole whereby upskirting is not covered properly by current law. You have also clearly been very thoughtful about when it would be appropriate for someone to be put on the sex offenders register versus when it would not. You have been clear about ensuring that that is the case for someone who is a sexual predator, but am I right that you think that some people...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Female Offenders (10 Jul 2018)

Helen Whately: What steps the Government is taking to improve the management of female offenders in the criminal justice system.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Female Offenders (10 Jul 2018)

Helen Whately: I congratulate my hon. Friend on his new role. East Sutton Park prison in my constituency has a fabulous reputation for preparing women offenders for life back in the real world. For instance, 90% of its inmates do not reoffend within two years, which, as he will know, is much better than the general national statistics. While I welcome the plans to reduce custodial sentences for women, may I...

Leaving the EU (9 Jul 2018)

Helen Whately: Brexit has divided the country. With that in mind, may I suggest to my right hon. Friend that it is essential for us to pursue a Brexit that is true to the referendum result and supports the aspirations and incomes of people whose jobs depend on trade with the European Union?

Points of Order (5 Jul 2018)

Helen Whately: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. Many Members have mentioned the bumps and the time pressure. There will also be expectant fathers, so to speak, who are feeling the time pressure.

Amesbury Incident (5 Jul 2018)

Helen Whately: It is quite extraordinary and shocking to hear the statements that are already coming out of Russia. Does my right hon. Friend agree that it is really important that we work with our international allies to counter the fake news and the disinformation coming from Russia and others?

Universal Credit (5 Jul 2018)

Helen Whately: While my right hon. Friend has apologised, could she confirm that the Labour party has yet to apologise for its misleading statements—[Interruption.]

Universal Credit (5 Jul 2018)

Helen Whately: rose—

Ministry of Justice: Department of Health and Social Care and Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (2 Jul 2018)

Helen Whately: It is a great pleasure to follow the thoughtful speech of the hon. Member for Sheffield South East (Mr Betts). I really enjoyed listening to it. Everybody has an NHS story, whether a child born, a disease cured or a life saved. I have seen the NHS at its best—when my five-year-old son got appendicitis on Christmas day and three days later was home and happy, without his appendix. I...

Food Advertising (Protection of Children from Targeting): Draft EU-Canada Trade Agreement Order (26 Jun 2018)

Helen Whately: Britain should and must be a champion of free trade. Free trade, the great driver of prosperity, is in the interests of our constituents and has taken 1 billion people out of poverty around the world. Now more than ever, when protectionism is rearing its head—in fact, when it is being trumpeted in parts of the world—we should send a message to the world that we will not follow...
