Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Victoria Atkins: In the context of the cliff edge, does my hon. Friend agree that under the old system some claimants lost £9 from every extra £10 that they claimed, and that that is what we are trying to correct?

Surgical Mesh Implants — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (18 Oct 2017)

Victoria Atkins: I apologise for arriving late to the debate, Mr Owen. I congratulate the hon. Lady on holding this important debate. The point that she makes about long-term complications is just as important as that about the short-term complications. My constituent developed fibromyalgia as a result of the complications arising from her mesh surgery for stress urinary incontinence. Does the hon. Lady...

Iran (16 Oct 2017)

Victoria Atkins: RAF Coningsby in my constituency is the home of the Typhoon jets that keep the nation’s skies safe. I am pleased that some constituents of mine have visited the House today. Will my right hon. Friend please assure the people who play such a vital role in the nation’s security that every diplomatic effort is being made so that, please God, they never have to face the consequences...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Asset Recovery Programme (16 Oct 2017)

Victoria Atkins: What steps she is taking to confiscate money from criminals; and how she plans further to strengthen the asset recovery programme.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Asset Recovery Programme (16 Oct 2017)

Victoria Atkins: Serious criminals view prison as an occupational hazard, but they do not like it when law enforcement hits them in the wallet and goes after their illegally obtained assets. Will my right hon. Friend assure me and the House that the National Crime Agency will use the exciting new powers, including unexplained wealth orders, that it has been given?

Bae Systems Military Air & Information Sites: Job Losses (10 Oct 2017)

Victoria Atkins: BAE Systems is a vital employer in my constituency. It maintains the Typhoon jets that fly from RAF Coningsby and many of my constituents commute to Brough in Humberside, where BAE Systems provides highly skilled careers and apprenticeships. Sadly, we have heard today that Brough is to lose 400 jobs. In that spirit, I very much hope the Government will work with BAE Systems to ensure...

Monarch Airlines (9 Oct 2017)

Victoria Atkins: This has been a massive exercise in repatriating citizens and our thanks should go to the Civil Aviation Authority and others that made it happen. Will the Secretary of State please confirm the cost of the repatriation exercise? Are insurers, credit card companies and banks playing their part in reimbursing the taxpayer?

Victoria Atkins: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Parliamentary Candidates: Barriers for Women (13 Sep 2017)

Victoria Atkins: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Parliamentary Candidates: Barriers for Women (13 Sep 2017)

Victoria Atkins: Will the hon. Lady please ask her Whips Office to pair mums of newborn babies so that they can be slipped from this place? I understand that Labour Whips are refusing to pair mums who should be on maternity leave; they are being dragged back to the Chamber. Please can she encourage her Whips Office to do that?

Parliamentary Candidates: Barriers for Women (13 Sep 2017)

Victoria Atkins: I was in that debate as well. In fairness to that Member, he was saying that the so-called family-friendly hours are not in fact family friendly. I do not know whether his messaging was correct, but I think he was making precisely the same point as the hon. Lady—that they are not family friendly.

Parliamentary Candidates: Barriers for Women (13 Sep 2017)

Victoria Atkins: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Sep 2017)

Victoria Atkins: Yesterday, the shadow Justice Secretary refused four times to condemn illegal strike action. Labour’s biggest union paymaster seems to agree. Such illegal action would cause misery for millions of people across the country. Will my right hon. Friend join me in condemning illegal action? Does she agree that it is the Conservatives who understand that this great country was built on the...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Victoria Atkins: I will endeavour to follow the plea of the hon. Member for Bishop Auckland (Helen Goodman) and deliver what I hope will be a thoughtful speech. She may not agree with every point, but I promise her that I have been thinking about it a great deal as I have sat through the debate not just today, but on Thursday. That has given me quite a lot of time to do so. I have approached this debate as I...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Victoria Atkins: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for that intervention because it gives me the opportunity to mention the sunset clauses in relation to both clauses 7 and 9. I will not make Ministers’ lives easy, because I note that there is no corresponding sunset clause in relation to clause 17, but it may well be possible to discuss that in Committee. We have the comfort of knowing, however, that...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

Victoria Atkins: On health and safety protections, the right hon. and learned Gentleman knows, of course, that there is a 1974 statute—the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974—which gives not just employees safety protections, but members of the public who are affected by conditions in the workplace. Surely that in itself acts as the primary protection to workers in this country under health...
