World War Two: Polish Contribution — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (2 Jul 2019)

Paula Sherriff: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

World War Two: Polish Contribution — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (2 Jul 2019)

Paula Sherriff: Dziękuję. As the hon. Gentleman knows, my paternal grandfather was Polish; he served in the Polish merchant navy, which is what brought him to the UK. I would love to work with the hon. Gentleman on creating a lasting memorial to all the Poles who contributed so much. My grandfather, Mięczyslaw Bagniçki, was very proud to be Polish to his fingertips. Equally, he thought the UK had given...

Education: Sixth-Form Students: Funding (24 Jun 2019)

Paula Sherriff: The Government’s own review of tertiary education said that there was no justification for funding 18-year-olds in sixth forms or colleges at a lower rate than 17-year-olds and recommended that the baseline be raised. Does the Minister accept that the cuts in 2013 were a big mistake?

Written Answers — Department for Education: Healthy Pupils Capital Fund (20 Jun 2019)

Paula Sherriff: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, how much funding was allocated from the Healthy Pupils Capital Fund for projects on (a) mental health, (b) physical health and (c) other purposes.

Health and Social Care: Mental Health Services (18 Jun 2019)

Paula Sherriff: This week, the Children’s Society published research to show that more than 110,000 children and young people were turned away from mental health services because their problems were not deemed serious enough—that is despite suicide rates for teenagers almost doubling in eight years and research from YoungMinds that shows that three quarters of parents feel their child’s mental health...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Local Authorities: Government Funding (17 Jun 2019)

Paula Sherriff: The local government funding settlement did nothing to tackle the crippling financial pressure on councils following eight years of austerity. Will the Secretary of State tell the House how he intends to respond to local authorities in 2019 when they have to choose between delivering children’s services, delivering adult social care and emptying the bins?

Written Answers — Home Office: State Visits: USA (17 Jun 2019)

Paula Sherriff: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what the cost to the public purse of police support for the visit of President Trump was; and whether his Department provided additional funding to police forces for that visit.

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: USA: State Visits (17 Jun 2019)

Paula Sherriff: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what estimate he has made of the cost to the public purse of President Trump's state visit in June.

Business of the House (6 Jun 2019)

Paula Sherriff: A constituent of mine is in the process of applying for a visa, but she has experienced technical problems online and is attempting to resolve the issue by phone. It would appear that the helpline—I use that term in the broadest sense—has been outsourced, and the company being used is charging £2.50 per minute for calls. She has already spent over £100 and is absolutely no nearer to...

Crime and Antisocial Behaviour: Small Towns (5 Jun 2019)

Paula Sherriff: My hon. Friend and constituency neighbour is making an excellent speech. Does she agree that it is often the low-level antisocial behaviour that is an absolute blight on neighbourhoods? The police have so many competing demands, largely because of the reduction in their numbers, that it is difficult for them to respond to everything that they might like to.

Sure Start: Ifs Report (5 Jun 2019)

Paula Sherriff: I remember a conversation with a constituent who said her Sure Start centre literally saved her life. She was suffering from post-natal depression but she went to the centre and spoke to other mums and dads, and it was they who convinced her that she needed professional help. Unfortunately, that Sure Start centre has now closed, along with more than half of the Sure Start centres in...

Interim NHS People Plan (5 Jun 2019)

Paula Sherriff: We’ll see.

National Minimum Wage Naming Scheme (4 Jun 2019)

Paula Sherriff: With record numbers of people struggling with in-work poverty, this Government should be doing everything they can to reverse this shameful record. Instead, they are removing schemes that expose exploitative employers. Will the Minister think again and not only reinstate the national minimum wage naming scheme, but use the scheme to enforce the law? Will she also provide a date by which she...

Whorlton Hall: Business of the House (23 May 2019)

Paula Sherriff: Last Saturday, I attended a community iftar at the Salfia centre in Dewsbury. It was a fabulous evening with people from all walks of life coming together to understand and celebrate Ramadan with our Muslim friends. At a time when it feels like division and hatred are on the rise, does the hon. Gentleman agree that these events are more important than ever? May we have a debate on how we...

Secondary School Standards: East Cleveland: Intimidation in Public Life — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (21 May 2019)

Paula Sherriff: I thank the hon. Gentleman sincerely for bringing this important debate. A lot of the abuse goes under the radar. I was slightly hesitant even to stand up and talk in the debate, because it will bring a new torrent of abuse. Somebody left swastikas at my offices on a number of occasions, and no action was taken, despite the person responsible being found. On occasions, I have received more...

Secondary School Standards: East Cleveland: Intimidation in Public Life — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (21 May 2019)

Paula Sherriff: I agree that it is important that we reflect on the internal processes we have in this place to deal with such abuse, but does the hon. Gentleman agree that we need to see a much more consistent approach from our police forces, the CPS and other justice agencies? I have spoken to many colleagues and it appears that currently the police response in particular is disparate and patchy.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Billy McNeill MBE (20 May 2019)

Paula Sherriff: The hon. Gentleman and I have discussed this outside the Chamber, but I am proud to have a strong familial link with the legend Billy McNeill. My grandma, who was of Lithuanian descent, and Billy’s mum, who was known as Nellie, were close friends. Indeed, I understand that Nellie went out with my great-uncle Charlie before she married Billy’s dad. Great-uncle Charlie was a wonderful man....

Definition of Islamophobia (16 May 2019)

Paula Sherriff: My hon. Friend is making an excellent speech. Does he agree that, if we are to tackle Islamophobia and other hate crime, we must ensure that the social media companies take their responsibility seriously? Only this week, I reported to Facebook this comment by somebody following the report of a large Muslim gathering: “A pig’s head and a dozen packs of bacon should do it.” Facebook...

Business of the House (16 May 2019)

Paula Sherriff: Some years ago, Dianne Watkinson created the Crowlees Hoppa walking bus. Last Friday, I joined Dianne, other volunteers and the children to walk to their lovely school. The scheme reduces traffic congestion and promotes exercise, so will the Leader of the House join me in congratulating Dianne and others and encourage other communities to follow suit?

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Israel: Official Visits (16 May 2019)

Paula Sherriff: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, how many visits Government Ministers have made to Hebron since 2010.
