Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Women’s Sport: Broadcasting (13 Dec 2018)

Hannah Bardell: I welcome the Under-Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (Mims Davies) to her place. She has big shoes to fill, but I am sure she will do the job well. I am pleased to hear the Secretary of State’s positive comments, but only 7% of sports media coverage is of women’s sport, which I am sure he will agree is a disgraceful statistic. Will he meet me and my hon. Friend...

Exiting the European Union (10 Dec 2018)

Hannah Bardell: I ask this on behalf of the many Livingston constituents who have been in touch with me, and, I am sure, many people across the United Kingdom. What the heck is going on? This is a complete and utter clusterbùrach. Why is the Prime Minister more concerned with her own self-preservation, and with narrow party unity, than with the lives and livelihoods of my constituents? How dare she postpone...

Gender Pay Gap (5 Dec 2018)

Hannah Bardell: I thank the Minister for her extremely positive contribution, which I know will be followed with actions. I have spoken to a number of male constituents who have asked their employer about paternity leave and received quite negative responses. Education and engagement with businesses across the UK is important in enabling men to take paternity leave without facing stigma and discrimination as...

Gender Pay Gap (5 Dec 2018)

Hannah Bardell: The hon. Lady is very welcome to nick it; we can share it and make it a cross-party tag line. Does she share my concern about comments from chief executives—particularly in the aviation industry, which has one of the worst pay gaps? Ryanair said that its gender pay gap of more than 70% was just because more men are pilots. We must call that out, but we must also encourage the industry to do...

Gender Pay Gap (5 Dec 2018)

Hannah Bardell: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir David. I pay tribute to the hon. Member for Walthamstow (Stella Creasy), who delivered a characteristically eloquent and detailed speech. I hope that some of the statistics in it get picked up by the media, because they are so stark and so incredible. As she said, the Equal Pay Act 1970 preceded her entry into the world. Clearly...

Gender Pay Gap (5 Dec 2018)

Hannah Bardell: I am delighted that the hon. Lady has secured this debate and it is a pleasure to join her in it. I was on the Delegated Legislation Committee that considered the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017 and put them through. I was surprised, as I am sure she was, that the bar was set at 250 employees. I know that is a good start, but does she agree that some of the...

Gender Pay Gap (5 Dec 2018)

Hannah Bardell: On the matter of culture, does the hon. Lady agree that the erroneous and inappropriate misuse of non-disclosure agreements is making a massive contribution to poor culture, with women particularly being silenced, resulting in the suppression and oppression of women and their voices in the workplace?

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: 1st Allotted Day (4 Dec 2018)

Hannah Bardell: My right hon. Friend is making an incredibly powerful speech. On contempt for the Scottish people and for our Parliament, does he agree that, if this Government and their MPs continue to treat Scotland with the kind of disrespect we have seen throughout this Brexit process, it will only make independence for Scotland more likely and come sooner?

Privilege (Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice) (4 Dec 2018)

Hannah Bardell: As the hon. Gentleman says, the Government are hiding behind the national and public interest and claiming to be the final arbiter of public interest. Does he agree that they are not the final arbiter of public interest, despite what some on the Government Benches may think, and that it is not in the public interest for the UK Government to be governing in secret, with Members of this House...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Yemen: Peace Process (4 Dec 2018)

Hannah Bardell: What recent assessment he has made of the political and security situation in Yemen.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Yemen: Peace Process (4 Dec 2018)

Hannah Bardell: The UN says that more than 60% of civilian deaths have been the result of Saudi-led airstrikes. Will the UK Government therefore confirm that they will undertake any and all measures to ensure that Saudi Arabia is no longer armed and trained by the UK and that every impression is made on it to reach an agreement that means that no more Yemeni civilians die at its hands?

Petition - a National Carers Strategy for Unpaid Carers: Jagtar Singh Johal (27 Nov 2018)

Hannah Bardell: Before the right hon. Gentleman comes to those points, I say gently to him that when I set up the all-party parliamentary group on deaths abroad and consular services, I could not have imagined the impact that it would have on me and my staff, who have heard evidence from over 50 families. I cannot imagine what it is like for the family of someone who has died abroad, been incarcerated, held...

Petition - a National Carers Strategy for Unpaid Carers: Jagtar Singh Johal (27 Nov 2018)

Hannah Bardell: My hon. Friend has done an incredible job of making representations on his constituent’s behalf. The details of the alleged torture are horrific. The all-party parliamentary group on deaths abroad and consular services was set up to understand why people who die abroad or are incarcerated illegally do not have the representation that they deserve from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office....

Petition - a National Carers Strategy for Unpaid Carers: Jagtar Singh Johal (27 Nov 2018)

Hannah Bardell: My hon. Friend is being very generous in giving way. Just to take him back very briefly to the point about media and press coverage, there are some significant parallels with the case of my constituent Kirsty Maxwell, who was, we believe, killed abroad, in Spain. The stress it causes to the family when there is misreporting and misinformation in the media and often the lack of support from...

Petition - a National Carers Strategy for Unpaid Carers: Jagtar Singh Johal (27 Nov 2018)

Hannah Bardell: I thank my hon. Friend for giving way. Does he share my concern about properly resourcing and training our consular staff? They do a very difficult job in some of the most challenging circumstances, but they will be facing up to £1 billion of cuts in the coming financial year. Add to that the challenge of Brexit, and our FCO needs the support of this Government and its Ministers to ensure...
