Written Answers — Department for Transport: Travel Requirements: Coronavirus (20 Jan 2022)

Carol Monaghan: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, for what reason the Government does not recognise covid-19 vaccinations administered in Mexico.

Covid-19 Update (19 Jan 2022)

Carol Monaghan: It is disappointing that the Prime Minister’s statement did not include measures to recover the £4.3 billion fraudulently claimed through coronavirus support schemes. With the £20 a week cut to universal credit, inflation at over 5% and energy prices going through roof, ordinary families are not experiencing coronavirus recovery in the same boozy way as the Prime Minister, so will he now...

Written Answers — Home Office: Immigration Controls (17 Jan 2022)

Carol Monaghan: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what discussions she has had with Cabinet colleagues on the impact of the Government's immigration policies on acute labour shortages.

Home Department: Topical Questions (17 Jan 2022)

Carol Monaghan: In our communities, we have asylum seekers who are ready and willing to work in sectors that are experiencing acute shortages, such as fruit and veg picking and HGV driving, but those occupations still do not appear on the shortage occupation list. When will the Government widen that list, or will they simply sacrifice the economy for their hostile immigration environment?

Defence: Armed Forces Pay (10 Jan 2022)

Carol Monaghan: What recent assessment he has made of trends in the level of pay of armed forces personnel.

Defence: Armed Forces Pay (10 Jan 2022)

Carol Monaghan: May I start by offering my condolences to the family of our hon. Friend, Jack Dromey, and in particular to our colleague, the right hon. and learned Member for Camberwell and Peckham? Our thoughts are with her at this time. Since 2010, many armed forces personnel have experienced a dramatic real-terms decrease in pay, some by as much as 6.5%. With the cost of living increasing dramatically...

Armed Forces Bill: Clause 7 - Concurrent jurisdiction (13 Dec 2021)

Carol Monaghan: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Armed Forces Bill: Clause 7 - Concurrent jurisdiction (13 Dec 2021)

Carol Monaghan: Does the hon. Gentleman share the other concern raised regarding the gender composition of courts martial? Unless we have gender parity, it is very difficult for all-male or majority male courts to understand properly the experience women may have had in that situation.

Armed Forces Bill: Clause 7 - Concurrent jurisdiction (13 Dec 2021)

Carol Monaghan: There is a debt of gratitude that we owe to members of the armed forces, and we have seen that acutely over the last few days as they mobilised to help with the vaccine booster campaign. I received my booster on Friday, and there was certainly a large armed forces presence there. As well as thanking members of the NHS, I would like to extend my gratitude to members of the armed forces who...

backbench business: [Dr Rupa Huq in the Chair] (9 Dec 2021)

Carol Monaghan: The Minister has spoken about the civilian courts and the increased number of convictions, which I think we all welcome. However, in her opening remarks, the hon. Member for South Shields (Mrs Lewell-Buck) talked about victims’ reluctance to come forward because of how they would be treated. How does he propose to deal with that?

backbench business: [Dr Rupa Huq in the Chair] (9 Dec 2021)

Carol Monaghan: I start by sincerely commending the hon. Member for Wrexham (Sarah Atherton) for her bold leadership throughout this inquiry, from its conception to the publication of the report. This is a bold and comprehensive piece of work that probably should have been done decades ago, and it was because of her commitment and drive that it took wheels and ran. I congratulate her on it and commend her...

Defence Committee (9 Dec 2021)

Carol Monaghan: I congratulate the hon. Member on this comprehensive and, at times, quite harrowing report. It is a huge body of work and some of it made for quite difficult reading. I was most disturbed by the tenfold increase in cases of rape and sexual assault on the under-18s. Given the Government response to her report, is she confident that servicewomen are safe from sexual violence in their workplace?...

Business of the House (9 Dec 2021)

Carol Monaghan: My constituent Jan Ahmadzai, a British national, was in Afghanistan visiting his wife and five children when Kabul fell. He was due to be evacuated, but unfortunately he was close to Kabul airport when the suicide bombing took place. He has since managed to flee with his family to Pakistan, but the only information that we can get from the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office is that...

Downing Street Christmas Parties Investigation (9 Dec 2021)

Carol Monaghan: The issue is not the however many gatherings. The Prime Minister has made a litany of errors, any one of which would have caused a decent Prime Minister to resign, whether it is the illegal Prorogation, the Barnard Castle incident, the comment on letting bodies “pile high in their thousands,” the chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan that has cost lives or the scandal surrounding Owen...

Armed Forces Bill: Clause 7 - Concurrent jurisdiction (6 Dec 2021)

Carol Monaghan: It was certainly interesting to listen to the contribution from the former Minister, the hon. Member for Plymouth, Moor View (Johnny Mercer). Over the past year, personnel have supported the vaccine roll-out, transported petrol to petrol stations and, most recently, aided those impacted by Storm Arwen. Overseas, members of our armed forces have put their lives on the line to evacuate those...

Arthur Labinjo-Hughes (6 Dec 2021)

Carol Monaghan: I thank the Secretary of State for advance sight of his statement. It is unusual that we are here in this House with so much cross-party agreement on an issue, but the Secretary of State spoke from the heart and with a genuine desire for change, and I hope that we can be supportive of that. I join him in commending those who brought Arthur’s killers to justice, and offer my condolences and...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Infant Mortality: Asians (6 Dec 2021)

Carol Monaghan: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, if he will establish an inquiry into the difference in the average incidence of deaths of Asian and Asian British babies each year.

Education: Student Loan Repayment Threshold (6 Dec 2021)

Carol Monaghan: I welcome the new shadow Education team to their positions. Young people in England already graduate with an average of £50,000 of debt as a result of the huge tuition fees, so for the Government even to contemplate lowering the threshold for student loan repayments will only compound the financial struggles of those young people. It is not good enough to say that we will hear about Augur...

Education: Topical Questions (6 Dec 2021)

Carol Monaghan: I associate myself and the rest of us on the SNP Benches with the Secretary of State’s remarks about little Arthur. Reports that the student loan repayment threshold will be lowered are most concerning for those who are already experiencing graduate debt. Will the Minister detail the discussions she has had with Treasury colleagues? Will she confirm whether any proposed threshold change...
