Plastic Bottles and Coffee Cups (17 May 2018)

Victoria Prentis: I am going slightly off the point here, but the hon. Lady mentioned airports.

There are often places to refill them there, but people do not seem to be aware of that fact.

Belhaj and Boudchar: Litigation Update (10 May 2018)

Victoria Prentis: I thank the Attorney General for his statement today. I worked on this case in my previous role as a Government lawyer, as of course have many Government lawyers over the years, and even though there are clearly no winners today, I ask him to join me in praising the work of lawyers in the Treasury Solicitor’s Department and the Security Service lawyers who themselves provide a barrier,...

Business of the House (Today): Criminal Legal Aid (8 May 2018)

Victoria Prentis: Does my hon. Friend agree that the justice system stands or falls together, and that far from being broken, it is one of the finest justice systems in the world? It is worth £25 billion a year, and we need to ensure that all levels of the Bar, and our solicitor advocates, are supported in the work that they do.

Gentleman not think it is important to listen to those who are working in our criminal courts day after day?

Health and Social Care: Obesity (8 May 2018)

Professor Wass shares my concerns about the availability of hospital services for those with established obesity. Will my right hon. Friend set out what plans his Department has to treat those who are already obese?

Syria (30 Apr 2018)

Victoria Prentis: What progress has been made on working with smaller partners in Syria, such as the very brave medics supported by the Hands Up Foundation who are working in Idlib at this very minute? Will the Secretary of State join me in reminding Government and Opposition Members that Singing for Syrians is not just for Christmas and that the money donated now can go straight to Idlib?

Employment and Workers’ Rights Bill (27 Apr 2018)

Victoria Prentis: I welcome the opportunity to speak in the debate. Employment rights have always been close to my heart. For example, it was a genuine honour to sit on the Parental Bereavement (Leave and Pay) Public Bill Committee earlier this year. Ensuring that parents have the time to grieve the loss of a child without the pressure to return to work is vital and will make a real difference, and I remain...

Employment and Workers’ Rights Bill (27 Apr 2018)

Victoria Prentis: The hon. Lady raises an extremely serious case. It is of course important that the Government collate and evaluate the information. It is vital that people work safely, both for their own health and for the health of the rest of us. I will now quote further from the Taylor review, because it is important to note that it “does not want to stop companies using agency staff but we propose...

Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill: Assaults on police constables (27 Apr 2018)

Victoria Prentis: My hon. Friend echoes my thoughts exactly on the sentencing of prisoners. It might be helpful for him to look at the marvellous report prepared by the Justice Committee last year on the position of magistrates. I wonder whether magistrates should be given greater sentencing powers and whether we should worry less about differences between different types of court, and instead focus on what...

Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill: Assaults on police constables (27 Apr 2018)

Victoria Prentis: indicated dissent.

Protecting Children in Conflict Areas — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (25 Apr 2018)

Victoria Prentis: Given that we are taking part in a Save the Children sponsored event, does my hon. Friend agree that we should thank such organisations for the enormously good work they do, particularly in Jordan? We in this country should be grateful to the countries such as Jordan and Lebanon that surround Syria, because in some ways they are risking the education of their own children by running a...
