Gurkha Pensions — [Dr Rupa Huq in the Chair] (22 Nov 2021)

Carol Monaghan: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Dr Huq. I congratulate the hon. Member for Stoke-on-Trent North (Jonathan Gullis) on starting us off this afternoon. This is a very important debate. We have always considered the Gurkhas’ service to be loyal, courageous and skilful. Gurkhas are synonymous with the very best of the British armed forces. During the world wars, more than...

Defence: Poppy Appeal (15 Nov 2021)

Carol Monaghan: This Remembrance Sunday was the first time that LGBT veterans were invited to lay a wreath openly at the Cenotaph. While the route to equality is something we all welcome, can the Minister detail the steps the Government are taking to provide compensation to all LGBT veterans who suffered a loss of earnings and pension as a result of the historical ban?

Written Answers — Home Office: Visas: Software (11 Nov 2021)

Carol Monaghan: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, if she will consider developing a mobile phone app for visa holders to use as an alternative to the Employer Checking Service to demonstrate their right to (a) work and (b) reside.

Committee on Standards: Decision of the House (8 Nov 2021)

Carol Monaghan: Of course, this is not the first time we have seen this Prime Minister do things that have shocked our constituents. The last time I had a mailbag similar to this weekend’s was for the illegal Prorogation of Parliament a couple of years’ ago, which my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Edinburgh South West (Joanna Cherry) took to the Supreme Court and exposed. The level of outrage...

Work and Pensions: Disabled People: Support in Work (8 Nov 2021)

Carol Monaghan: It is good to hear some of the commitments the Government are making, but unfortunately we have heard them before. Many disabled people, particularly those who are trying to get employment and support allowance or PIP, will struggle through their assessment because their disabilities are hidden. What work is the Minister doing on that, including with providers of those assessments, to ensure...

Scotland: Renewables and Green Energy: Onshore Employment (3 Nov 2021)

Carol Monaghan: Over 97% of Scotland’s electricity comes from renewable sources. This sector’s expansion is hampered not by potential but by the highest grid connection charges in the UK. COP is an opportunity to reassess such arrangements, so what discussions has the Minister had with Cabinet colleagues on reducing those connection charges?

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (2 Nov 2021)

Carol Monaghan: I hope my hon. Friend is going to point out—maybe he is not, so I will—that the Scottish Tories support the SNP’s position on free tuition. It will be interesting to see how they vote on the Budget resolutions.

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (2 Nov 2021)

Carol Monaghan: Does the hon. Lady not recognise that fruit ciders have been linked to alcoholism in children, and that it is not necessarily a good thing to cut the tax on them?

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (2 Nov 2021)

Carol Monaghan: I think the right hon. Member for Harlow (Robert Halfon) summed up the issues for many of us. The Budget should be an opportunity to reflect on the cost of living, but when we consider the reality of this Budget for many of our constituents, seeing how young people and low-income families have been hit, we see that it unfortunately misses the target. Before I come on to my main points, I...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (2 Nov 2021)

Carol Monaghan: One group of veterans whom we talk about regularly in the House—I raised this subject with the hon. Gentleman when he was the Veterans Minister—are the nuclear test veterans. I have not heard him talk about them, and he did not speak much about them in his former role. Perhaps he would like to say a little about them now.

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (2 Nov 2021)

Carol Monaghan: indicated dissent.

Written Answers — Home Office: Human Trafficking: Victims (1 Nov 2021)

Carol Monaghan: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what steps she is taking to reduce the time taken to assess potential victim of human trafficking cases.

Education: Higher Education: Learning Lost to Covid-19 (1 Nov 2021)

Carol Monaghan: I welcome the new Secretary of State and his team, who are also new, with the exception of the Minister for Further and Higher Education, the right hon. Member for Chippenham (Michelle Donelan), although I of course welcome her as well as she returns to the Front Bench. I welcome the entire team. She has quite rightly commended university staff for the job that they have done over the past...

Education: Topical Questions (1 Nov 2021)

Carol Monaghan: The presence of anti-vaxxers outside schools throughout the United Kingdom is something that should concern us all, particularly as we enter the winter months. What work is the Secretary of State doing to ensure that young people are safeguarded against dangerous misinformation, and what work is being done to counter the misinformation that they are being given?

Northern Ireland: Northern Ireland Protocol: EU Negotiations (27 Oct 2021)

Carol Monaghan: What progress the Government have made on negotiating a permanent settlement on the Northern Ireland protocol with the EU.

Northern Ireland: Northern Ireland Protocol: EU Negotiations (27 Oct 2021)

Carol Monaghan: The law firm Carson McDowell has said that not one business has raised concerns about the European Court of Justice or its role as the court of ultimate appeal under the Northern Ireland protocol, so why are the UK Government prioritising a Brexit purity issue as their key demand in negotiations with the EU when it is completely immaterial to businesses in Northern Ireland?

University Tuition Fees — [Esther McVey in the Chair] (25 Oct 2021)

Carol Monaghan: May I ask the Minister when we are likely to see the recommendations of the Augar review implemented, including significantly reducing the student fees that are being paid?

University Tuition Fees — [Esther McVey in the Chair] (25 Oct 2021)

Carol Monaghan: I like the word outcomes; I think it is a good way of describing the position we get to. However, I do not distinguish between those from a disadvantaged background and those from a more privileged or affluent background. We will have parity of esteem when the same number of youngsters from different backgrounds are going to the same types of places—so, whatever percentage going to...

University Tuition Fees — [Esther McVey in the Chair] (25 Oct 2021)

Carol Monaghan: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms McVey. I pay tribute to the petitioners, who have done so well in bringing this petition to the House for debate. I thank the hon. Member for Ipswich (Tom Hunt) for leading it off. I want to start by saying that in Scotland, of course, education remains free. That makes a massive difference when looking at graduate debt because the...

University Tuition Fees — [Esther McVey in the Chair] (25 Oct 2021)

Carol Monaghan: It is also worth saying for the benefit of those watching the debate that there is the opportunity to visit Parliament and see debates take place. As the hon. Gentleman says, debates between MPs and students may be a little more difficult to organise, although not impossible, but it would be great to see student organisations come and meet MPs and see what goes on in Parliament and how they...
