Whirlpool: Product Safety System — [Ms Joan Ryan in the Chair] (26 Apr 2017)

Corri Wilson: I thank the hon. Member for Hammersmith (Andy Slaughter) for securing this important debate and for the work that he has done on the topic so far. I am relieved that this debate has finally been granted and pleased that I have the opportunity to take part. For some time I have been deeply troubled by the dangers posed by Whirlpool-owned tumble dryers and Whirlpool’s lack of response. I...

Backbench Business: Local and Regional News — [Mr David Nuttall in the Chair] (30 Mar 2017)

Corri Wilson: I start by saying that I believe local media should be seen as an asset to the communities they serve. They are vital for a healthy democracy, they benefit local businesses, they provide a platform for local campaigns, they hold local politicians to account and they shine a light on some of the important local issues that matter to our constituents. The local press promote local fund-raising...

Personal Independence Payment: Regulations (29 Mar 2017)

Corri Wilson: It is a relief that we are having this debate on the Floor of the House, and I thank you for granting it, Mr Speaker, following the application of the hon. Member for Oldham East and Saddleworth (Debbie Abrahams). It is a shame that the House has had to drag a Minister to the Dispatch Box so that the Government can be held to account on this matter after weeks of their refusing to debate it....

Personal Independence Payment: Regulations (29 Mar 2017)

Corri Wilson: I completely agree with the right hon. Gentleman. We should not be treating one disability differently from another. I have said this before, but it bears repeating that the Government cannot simply move the goalposts every time they lose a battle in court. The regulations do nothing more than pander to the old stigmas and attitudes towards mental illness. If a person needs help, he or she...

Personal Independence Payment: Regulations (29 Mar 2017)

Corri Wilson: I agree with the hon. Lady. I am sure that most of us in the Chamber will have had constituents queuing at our door with personal independence payment issues. I hope that lessons can be learned from today’s debate. The Government should stop forcing important legislation through the back door. They should have consulted their own Social Security Advisory Committee, and they should not have...

Personal Independence Payments (15 Mar 2017)

Corri Wilson: The Government continually trot out the line that serious mental ill health should be treated in the same way as any other illness, but their response to these rulings betrays the old attitudes and stigmas towards mental illness. They cannot keep shifting the goalposts every time they lose a battle at court. If a person needs help, he or she needs help regardless of the nature of their...

Personal Independence Payments (28 Feb 2017)

Corri Wilson: The changes will, despite what has been said, exclude disabled people from vital financial assistance. They send a dangerous message to the public that people suffering from mental health conditions are less worthy of support than those with physical disabilities. We cannot and should not pit one disability against another. With condemnation across the spectrum, I urge the Secretary of State...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Ayrshire Growth Deal (28 Feb 2017)

Corri Wilson: What progress the Government have made on assessing the potential merits of the Ayrshire growth deal.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Ayrshire Growth Deal (28 Feb 2017)

Corri Wilson: We heard earlier about investment in Yorkshire. Would the Chief Secretary to the Treasury acknowledge that the Ayrshire growth deal would provide a much-needed economic boost to the area and reflect the Government’s promise to drive growth throughout the whole country, as outlined in their recently published industrial strategy?

Backbench Business: Disabled People: Publicly Accessible Amenities — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (23 Feb 2017)

Corri Wilson: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for East Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow (Dr Cameron) for securing this important debate. I am delighted that we are having it at a crucial time for disabled people. Disability policy should be based on the social model of disability—that disability is caused by the way society is organised, rather than by the person’s impairment or difference—and...

Backbench Business: Disabled People: Publicly Accessible Amenities — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (23 Feb 2017)

Corri Wilson: I completely agree. In Scotland, we aim for a fairer, more equal and more inclusive society. To that end, the Scottish National party-led Government announced just before Christmas their plan to transform the lives of disabled people in Scotland. That plan was developed with disabled people, because we believe that the more than 1 million disabled people who contribute to our society should...

Cerberus Capital Management: Purchase of Distressed Assets (22 Feb 2017)

Corri Wilson: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Cerberus Capital Management: Purchase of Distressed Assets (22 Feb 2017)

Corri Wilson: Does my hon. Friend agree that trying to get answers from Cerberus Capital Management on this issue is like drawing blood from a stone? Attempts to communicate with it, by both myself and my constituents who have been impacted, have proven entirely fruitless, and calls for a meeting have fallen on deaf ears.

Ayrshire Growth Deal (19 Jan 2017)

Corri Wilson: I am lucky enough to have some fantastic drinks companies in my constituency, including the company that produces Hendrick’s gin, and Caledonian Bottlers and Ayr Brewing Company, as well as wonderful food suppliers such as We Hae Meat, Barwheys Dairy, Chocolati and Roundsquare Roastery, which roasts coffee beans. In fact, there are too many to mention. Does my hon. Friend agree that the...

Digital Equipment Ltd: Pension Scheme (17 Jan 2017)

Corri Wilson: I thank hon. Members for coming along today and welcome their contributions. I am also pleased that the issue is now on the Minister’s radar. If the Government are encouraging people to save for the future, people need to know that the goalposts will not change. As has been mentioned, trust is key. When people enter their retirement years, the last thing they want is to discover that they...

Digital Equipment Ltd: Pension Scheme (17 Jan 2017)

Corri Wilson: I beg to move, That this House has considered Digital Equipment Ltd’s pension scheme. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr McCabe, and to move this motion on behalf of my constituents. I am grateful to those Members who are here to take part in the debate. I am sure that they share my belief that this is an important topic. Digital Equipment Ltd started in Massachusetts in...

Digital Equipment Ltd: Pension Scheme (17 Jan 2017)

Corri Wilson: The right hon. Lady makes a valid point that campaigners are not asking for indexation to be backdated, which would cause considerable difficulties for the companies involved. I will come to that point later. I empathise with Hewlett Packard and other businesses that inherited defined-benefit schemes through expanding their operations during the boom years. They are all experiencing a global...

Digital Equipment Ltd: Pension Scheme (17 Jan 2017)

Corri Wilson: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his intervention. The people who have paid in for the longest are getting the least benefit back from the scheme, although I recognise that pension schemes have changed. I would like to hear from the Government what options, if any, are open to scheme members. The Pensions Minister has stated that defined-benefit schemes will be looked at early this year and he...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Contracted-out Health Assessments (9 Jan 2017)

Corri Wilson: I am afraid that many of my constituents have been refused home assessments for personal independence payments, and others have been unable to have their assessments recorded at home with the DWP. Given that it was recently reported that 61% of 90,000 claimants who appealed against a PIP decision at the tribunal period up to September 2016 won their case, will the Minister today commit to a...
