Health and Social Care: STPs: Five-year Workforce Plans (26 Mar 2019)

Paula Sherriff: Mental health nurse numbers have fallen for the second month running, and learning disability nurse numbers have fallen by 40% since this Government came to power. Nearly 13,000 mental health staff left their roles between May and October 2018, and the vacancy rate is now almost 10%. The King’s Fund, the Nuffield Trust and the Health Foundation say that “Urgent action is now required to...

European Council (25 Mar 2019)

Paula Sherriff: The Prime Minister may recall that, just a little over a week ago, I spoke to her at the door of this Chamber and begged her to dial down the hate not only because of the incessant abuse and threats that I receive, but for the millions of people in our country who are fearful. She responded on Wednesday evening with a despicable statement that, frankly, many of us felt put more of us and more...

European Council (25 Mar 2019)

Paula Sherriff: indicated dissent.

Backbench Business - Services for People with Autismbackbench Business (21 Mar 2019)

Paula Sherriff: Our thoughts are with the right hon. Member for Chesham and Amersham (Dame Cheryl Gillan), who is a true champion for those with autism. I also thank the hon. Member for Bexhill and Battle (Huw Merriman) for securing today’s debate and his excellent speech, which set the tone for a very constructive debate. This is a timely debate not just because it comes in advance of World Autism...

Business of the House (21 Mar 2019)

Paula Sherriff: As a prefix to my planned question and further to the comments from my hon. Friend the Member for Kingston upon Hull North (Diana Johnson), I must tell the House that last week, in common with many other Members on both sides of this House, I received a message, among lots and lots of other messages, saying that my head should be chopped off. I apprehended the Prime Minister last Thursday...

Far-Right Violence and Online Extremism (18 Mar 2019)

Paula Sherriff: Mass murder of innocents praying at their place of worship is one of the most abhorrent acts imaginable. We must urgently have conversations about the implications of words and actions, including those in the media. My constituents—those of all faiths and none—are fearful of attacks. Is the Minister of the opinion that the police have adequate resources to protect our mosques, other faith...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (11 Mar 2019)

Paula Sherriff: A number of schools in my constituency are facing severe financial pressures, with some having to merge year groups and rely on parental donations. The Minister says that more money is going into education, but these smaller, rural schools are really struggling. Will he meet me to discuss what we can do for these schools in my area?

Knife Crime (7 Mar 2019)

Paula Sherriff: It is all very well the Minister referring to attending meetings and summits, but police bosses this week demanded an extra 10,000 police officers to deal with this absolutely dreadful problem. More children may well die this weekend. If the Government refuse to provide the 10,000 extra officers that the police bosses demand, it prompts the question: what price do this Government attach to a...

EU Exit Preparations: Ferry Contracts (5 Mar 2019)

Paula Sherriff: Ahoy there!

Eurotunnel: Payment (4 Mar 2019)

Paula Sherriff: That £33 million would pay the annual salary of 118,000 nurses, and God knows we need them. The NHS has 40,000 nursing vacancies in the NHS in England. Does the Secretary of State for Health think that the cost of the latest blunder of the elusive Secretary of State for Transport is money well spent?

Net Zero Carbon Emissions: Uk’S Progress (28 Feb 2019)

Paula Sherriff: Does the right hon. Gentleman welcome my Little Litter Heroes campaign? We got primary schoolchildren involved in making sculptures out of their recycled goods and encouraged them to recycle everything where possible.

Health and Social Care Committee (28 Feb 2019)

Paula Sherriff: I congratulate my hon. Friend on a very thoughtful—indeed, excellent—speech, and I look forward to reading the report in full. I am also very grateful to him for the work that he does on the all-party parliamentary group on the prevention of adverse childhood experiences. I will talk a little about the service in my area through which mums who may be prone to post-natal depression are...

Business of the House (28 Feb 2019)

Paula Sherriff: I am contacted several times a month by understandably angry constituents who have received extortionate fines from private parking companies. The fines often arise from having been just five minutes late in coming back from their supermarket shopping. The signage is often questionable or incredibly discreet. Can we have a debate in Government time specifically about how to tighten up...

Jammu and Kashmir (27 Feb 2019)

Paula Sherriff: Let me say, at the risk of repeating what has been said by other Members, that we constantly hear of human rights violations in occupied Kashmir, and we cannot be bystanders. What efforts is the Minister making to ensure that a thorough, transparent inquiry into these crimes is commissioned?

Eating Disorders Awareness Week — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (27 Feb 2019)

Paula Sherriff: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Bailey. I sincerely thank the hon. Member for Angus (Kirstene Hair) for securing this very important debate today, particularly during Eating Disorders Awareness Week. I was deeply moved by her powerful opening speech and I thank her and the hon. Member for Bath (Wera Hobhouse) for their persistence in bringing the issue to the House....

Eating Disorders Awareness Week — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (27 Feb 2019)

Paula Sherriff: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his intervention. Frankly, a debate would not be complete without an intervention from him. I absolutely agree. When I was speaking to the professional at the Mirfield Free Grammar, she told me that much of what comes through her door relates to eating disorders, crucially in boys as well as girls. Sometimes we continue to stereotype that eating disorders affect...

Eating Disorders Awareness Week — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (27 Feb 2019)

Paula Sherriff: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention. I absolutely agree. We had a very interesting discussion at the APPG about whether we could do more pre-screening when people go to university. We must also remember those in further education, not just those in higher education. I ask the Minister whether what happened to my constituent would have happened had she been suffering from a serious...
