Pension Equality for Women: Hormone Pregnancy Tests (14 Dec 2017)

Hannah Bardell: It is such an honour to sum up this humbling and moving debate. I commend all Members who have contributed, particularly the right hon. Member for Hemel Hempstead (Sir Mike Penning), and the Clerks, to whom he rightly paid tribute, who drafted the motion. I also commend the hon. Member for Bolton South East (Yasmin Qureshi), who has fought tooth and nail for the victims of Primodos, as has...

Foreign Affairs Committee (14 Dec 2017)

Hannah Bardell: I commend the hon. Gentleman and his Committee for the excellent report. My Scottish National party colleagues and I agree with the Committee that the UK bears significant responsibility for the international failure effectively to respond to the crisis, considering the UK’s role on the UN Security Council. Does he agree that the UK Government need to suspend their military assistance...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: International treaties and agreements (13 Dec 2017)

Hannah Bardell: The House has heard many technical and legalistic arguments focused on the economic, trade and legal impacts of our leaving the EU, but so far in the Brexit process and debate, the interests of children and their rights have been barely mentioned. That said, I was pleased to hear the point made by my hon. Friend the Member for Glasgow Central (Alison Thewliss) about baby milk and the related...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: International treaties and agreements (13 Dec 2017)

Hannah Bardell: Not surprisingly, I could not agree more with my hon. Friend.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: International treaties and agreements (13 Dec 2017)

Hannah Bardell: I absolutely do agree. It will probably say “Impact Assessments” and there will just be a blank page, because that is the reality of the situation. It will probably serve as an abject example of how not to do democracy, and sadly we will all be judged under that banner. I do hope, though, that the history books will include those of us who opposed how this process is being carried...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: International treaties and agreements (13 Dec 2017)

Hannah Bardell: I absolutely agree. A delegation from across the EU—from Spain, France and many other countries—came to my constituency to meet and work with our children. It was so incredible to see the friendships that were struck up and the experiences that were shared. The thought that my three-year-old niece, or any children that I have, will not get to experience that is heart-breaking. We...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: International treaties and agreements (13 Dec 2017)

Hannah Bardell: The hon. Gentleman is going into great detail about the amount of time and effort that is going to be spent, and the number of treaties and trade deals that will need to be done. Does he agree with me on the broader point that we are treading water here? A huge amount of money and parliamentary time is going to be spent, and nothing else will be able to be done.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: International treaties and agreements (13 Dec 2017)

Hannah Bardell: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that the Government should carry out an impact assessment to establish whether they have the capacity to negotiate the treaties, given, for example, the Secretary of State for International Trade’s recent admission that they do not have the capacity to negotiate trade deals?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: International treaties and agreements (13 Dec 2017)

Hannah Bardell: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Work Capability Assessments — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (13 Dec 2017)

Hannah Bardell: The hon. Gentleman talks about compensation, but how does he think people can be compensated for damage to their mental health? A constituent who contacted me has been on Valium since her last ESA assessment because it was so devastating. Another constituent, who is affected by the issues covered by the Women Against State Pension Inequality Campaign and is therefore already missing out, has...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Renewable Energy (Scotland) (12 Dec 2017)

Hannah Bardell: What steps he is taking to support the development of renewable energy sources in Scotland.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Renewable Energy (Scotland) (12 Dec 2017)

Hannah Bardell: In the EU, we have benefited from funding from the European Investment Bank, which has contributed to the development of renewable energy generation in Scotland, including through a £525 million loan for the Beatrice wind farm project off the Caithness coast. Can the Minister reassure the House that the UK will continue to participate in and have access to the capital provided by the...

[Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (7 Dec 2017)

Hannah Bardell: I thank the Minister for giving way, and for her comments. One of the cultural issues that we touched on in our report was the representation of women and female parliamentarians in the media— the abuse and attention that we often receive. Speaking for myself, I have not received a huge amount of that, but some of my colleagues have. When we look up at the members of the Lobby during...

Women in the House of Commons — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (7 Dec 2017)

Hannah Bardell: The hon. Lady is making an excellent speech. Does she agree that, the fact that somebody in power is a woman does not mean that they should be held to different standards from men? That seems to be part of the issue: as women in the positions we hold, we have a right to be good or bad in the same way that men have.

Women in the House of Commons — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (7 Dec 2017)

Hannah Bardell: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Walsall North (Eddie Hughes). I agree with much of what he said—not all, but he has given me some good food for thought and debate. Like other Members, I will start by talking about my background. I was brought up by a single mother. My brother and I had very strong female role models. I often worried that he had few male role models,...

Women in the House of Commons — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (7 Dec 2017)

Hannah Bardell: The hon. Lady makes an excellent point; I am sure that irony is not lost on anyone here or anyone watching at home. We must look at those structural aspects. When there was a discussion about the refurbishment of the building, we suggested that perhaps it would be more financially efficient to build a new Parliament that was fit for purpose and turn this place into a museum. I know that is a...

Women in the House of Commons — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (7 Dec 2017)

Hannah Bardell: The hon. Gentleman is making a very powerful and interesting speech. We may have the debate about the good, the bad and the indifferent, but does he not agree with quotas as a short-term measure to redress the balance? Are we really saying that more than 50% of the population are not able to do exactly the same jobs as men?

Women in the House of Commons — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (7 Dec 2017)

Hannah Bardell: I thank the right hon. Lady for bringing this timely and hugely important debate to the Chamber. On the matter of voting, does she agree that there are models in the devolved nations? In the Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish Parliaments, there is a seat for every Member and electronic voting. It takes two seconds to press a button in Holyrood in Scotland, yet it takes us 15 minutes to walk...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Hannah Bardell: The hon. Gentleman talks about different regulations. Surely he understands the desire in Scotland, which the votes cast in Scotland reflected, to stay in the single market and the customs union and have the same rules and regulations. Only England and the other parts of the UK that leave may be threatened with different regulations.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Hannah Bardell: One of the hon. Gentleman’s colleagues has just said that he wants specifics about clause 11, while another says that the Conservative party respects the devolution settlement. Can the hon. Gentleman explain what it is about amendment 72— “This section shall not come into effect until…the Scottish Parliament…the National Assembly for Wales…and…the...
