Esa Underpayments: Business of the House (19 Jul 2018)

Paula Sherriff: The Safe Anchor Trust is a charity in my constituency that does wonderful work with people who are disadvantaged through social isolation, age, deprivation and physical or mental disabilities. I have seen at first hand the incredible work the trust does, and I am sure that the Leader of the House would be very welcome were she to take one of its wonderful boat trips. The trust is entirely...

Business of the House (12 Jul 2018)

Paula Sherriff: Since 2010, we have seen eight Housing Ministers, with the latest one on the ministerial merry-go-round, the hon. Member for North West Hampshire (Kit Malthouse), having once said that he was happy to make life “more uncomfortable” for homeless people. I genuinely have not seen any improvement, not just in my constituency but here in London and in our other big cities. It seems...

Visit of President Trump: Policing (12 Jul 2018)

Paula Sherriff: Will the Minister confirm that West Yorkshire police are providing nearly 300 officers, even though there is a planned English Defence League demo in our region? Further to the question from my hon. Friend the Member for Stretford and Urmston (Kate Green), will he therefore absolutely guarantee the safety of local people during that demo, when so many of our officers will be deployed elsewhere?

Transforming Care Programme (5 Jul 2018)

Paula Sherriff: Let me start by congratulating and thanking the right hon. Member for North Norfolk (Norman Lamb) for securing this debate and the Backbench Business Committee for granting the time on this very important issue. As the motion today notes, the transforming care programme was created with the stated intention of improving quality of care and quality of life for children and adults with a...

Transforming Care Programme (5 Jul 2018)

Paula Sherriff: My hon. Friend makes a very valid point. Everybody here this afternoon could not fail to be shocked and horrified by the case outlined by my hon. Friend the Member for Dulwich and West Norwood (Helen Hayes) regarding her young constituent, Matthew, and the quality of care that he received on an in-patient unit. Some 1,311 cases were passed for review between July 2016 and November 2017, but...

Transforming Care Programme (5 Jul 2018)

Paula Sherriff: I thank the right hon. Lady for her intervention. I absolutely agree. There are some incredible examples around the country of excellent work that is being done, but that makes it all the more important that we share that good practice so that it is disseminated more widely. Particularly on this very special day of the NHS’s 70th anniversary, I pay tribute to all those people who are...

Business of the House (5 Jul 2018)

Paula Sherriff: Loraine Farren from the Red Box Project and Sarah Watkinson from Mirfield Winter Warmers are doing tremendous work in my constituency collecting and distributing menstrual products for girls in schools and young women who cannot afford to buy them for themselves. I am pleased to say that my office will be a collection point for anyone who wishes to drop off such products, and I hope that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Rail Disruption: Passenger Compensation (5 Jul 2018)

Paula Sherriff: What steps he is taking to ensure the provision of compensation to passengers affected by recent rail disruption.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Rail Disruption: Passenger Compensation (5 Jul 2018)

Paula Sherriff: Well, that all sounds very good in principle, but owing to weeks of chaos, cancellations and delays, my constituent, Alex Hodgson, has had to use a significant proportion of his annual leave. He is still being passed between departments at TransPennine Express and has now been offered the equivalent of £1 a day compensation. Despite assurances from the Secretary of State, he and other...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Demolition of Khan al-Ahmar (4 Jul 2018)

Paula Sherriff: I have just heard that 35 people have been injured so far today as a direct result of the demolition. I know the Minister to be a very decent man, so will he pledge specifically to investigate why JCB bulldozers were used in the demolition of homes, given that it is certainly a serious breach of international law, if not a war crime?

Saddleworth Moor and Tameside: Ongoing Fire (2 Jul 2018)

Paula Sherriff: I join colleagues in thanking our incredibly brave firefighters, including those from West Yorkshire, and I do hope that the Minister will reassess their funding situation. Will he join Kirklees Council in the advice that it has given to people in the light of the extremely hot weather at the moment? I am talking about its advice on disposable barbeques, which is that people should not use...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (2 Jul 2018)

Paula Sherriff: A gentleman in his 80s attended my recent surgery regarding his son, who in his 50s and has complex and multiple disabilities. It beggars belief that he is being found fit for work. Will the Minister meet me to discuss this specific case? When will her Government stop vilifying the disabled and the most vulnerable in society?

Business of the House (28 Jun 2018)

Paula Sherriff: Mr Speaker, I warmly welcome your announcement about flying the St George’s flag over this building next week. I, too, was sorry to see Germany exit the World cup yesterday, mainly because I had Germany in the parliamentary Labour party sweepstake. Will the Leader of the House join me in welcoming the official opening of the Denby Dale and District men’s shed in my constituency...

International Trade: Exports in Global Markets (28 Jun 2018)

Paula Sherriff: What steps he is taking to promote UK exports in global markets.

International Trade: Exports in Global Markets (28 Jun 2018)

Paula Sherriff: What direct support is being given to businesses that want to export overseas and, crucially, how is it being signposted?

International Trade: Topical Questions (28 Jun 2018)

Paula Sherriff: The Secretary of State has previously suggested that outward direct investment is often seen as a fig leaf for outsourcing jobs and cutting costs at the expense of domestic investment in jobs. Does his Department monitor the number of jobs lost in the UK as a result of decisions to invest overseas? If so, will he tell us what they are?

Toilets (Provision and Accessibility) (27 Jun 2018)

Paula Sherriff: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to require certain buildings to have toilets which meet the needs of persons with a range of disability and accessibility requirements; and for connected purposes. I realise that access to toilets might sound far from a glamorous political campaign. As a somewhat taboo subject—I am an MP who has often not been afraid to raise taboo...

Football: Safe Standing — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (25 Jun 2018)

Paula Sherriff: The hon. Gentleman has actually taken the words about those ’80s terraces right out of my mouth. There is a perception among some that we are going back to crowded terraces with far too many people being admitted. I thank the Huddersfield Town Supporters Association and Stand Up For Town. I was initially very cynical about safe standing, but they taught me about what it involves.
