Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Leaving the EEA (16 Jan 2018)

Andrea Jenkyns: Does my hon. Friend agree that since deciding to leave the EU this Government have overseen record jobs, with quarter 4 figures for 2017 showing improved productivity? Does he agree that Britain’s best years lie ahead?

NHS Winter Crisis (10 Jan 2018)

Andrea Jenkyns: It is good to be back after using the NHS’s maternity services. I am proud of our NHS, and I am tired of Opposition Members talking it down. Our healthcare system is one of the best in the world, and while there is more to do, we should continue to improve our NHS with excitement for the opportunities ahead. We need to be honest about our current situation. We have an ageing and...

NHS Winter Crisis: Office for Students: Appointment (8 Jan 2018)

Andrea Jenkyns: Thank you very much, Mr Speaker. It was good to have you at the wedding. Labour Members feign outrage at Mr Young’s use of social media, but perhaps they should look at the way their own Labour activists and Momentum have treated other candidates, including during the general election. I got attacked by someone called “Corbyn Chick” for being an unmarried mother—where...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Innovative Drugs and Medical Devices (7 Feb 2017)

Andrea Jenkyns: As the Health Secretary is aware, my constituent Abi Longfellow is suffering with a rare kidney condition—dense deposit disease. What plans do the Government have to increase access to specialist drugs for those such as Abi with ultra-rare diseases?

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: [2nd day] (1 Feb 2017)

Andrea Jenkyns: Since September, the Exiting the European Union Committee has been established, there have been 26 debates and seven statements relating to the EU and our exit from it. Does my hon. Friend agree that those statistics highlight the many hours of debate available to all Members, contrary to what some might suggest, and that it is time we respect the majority of the public and support the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (1 Feb 2017)

Andrea Jenkyns: Will my right hon. Friend join me in congratulating Morley Academy on its recently awarded World Class Schools quality mark and say how such awards drive pupil excellence?

NHS and Social Care Funding (11 Jan 2017)

Andrea Jenkyns: I begin by objecting to the exaggerated language used over the weekend by Mike Adamson, the chief executive of the British Red Cross. What he said does a huge disservice to our hard-working healthcare professionals in the NHS. Such language was ill-thought-out, sloppy and irresponsible. The Red Cross does some fantastic work, as I am sure both sides of the House agree, but as a registered...

Mental Health and NHS Performance (9 Jan 2017)

Andrea Jenkyns: Thank you, Mr Speaker. First, I echo some of the points made by the Secretary of State regarding mental health support for expectant mothers. As one myself, I have to say that the midwives have been fantastic. Right from the very first appointments at grassroots level, they mention mental health, so we are feeling the support on the ground. I welcome today’s statement, which shows the...

CQC: NHS Deaths Review (13 Dec 2016)

Andrea Jenkyns: The Secretary of State has answered my point, but I would like to say, as chair of the all-party parliamentary group on patient safety, that the publication of avoidable death figures is really welcome news. I support what he said about creating a just culture where clinicians and other staff feel safe. That is important so that they can speak up about failure, and vital in delivering the...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (13 Dec 2016)

Andrea Jenkyns: Although business rates are set by the Valuation Office Agency, rather than by the Government, it is right the Government then try to soften the blow for those most affected. Will the Minister expand on what is being done to protect the businesses using solar panels that have been adversely impacted by high business rates?

Retail Store Closure: Boxing Day — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (12 Dec 2016)

Andrea Jenkyns: I actually did not work for Woolworths, just for the record. I was just saying how they—

Retail Store Closure: Boxing Day — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (12 Dec 2016)

Andrea Jenkyns: I apologise for coming in late, Mrs Moon; my meeting overran. I did want to be here at the beginning of the debate and I appreciate your giving me the chance to speak. Retail is in my blood. I was in it for nearly 20 years. I started off at Greggs bakery at the age of 16, worked my way up, and worked for many major and small retailers, so I was one of the low-paid workers that hon. Members...

Retail Store Closure: Boxing Day — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (12 Dec 2016)

Andrea Jenkyns: Sorry, not at the moment; I will come back to you. So many times when I was working on those Boxing days, new year’s days and so on, colleagues who had the day off would come in and see us because they were out shopping with their families. You are talking about giving people time off, but I saw that a lot of my colleagues were out shopping anyway. Times have changed. The retail sector...

Retail Store Closure: Boxing Day — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (12 Dec 2016)

Andrea Jenkyns: I will give way to you even though you did not to me.

Retail Store Closure: Boxing Day — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (12 Dec 2016)

Andrea Jenkyns: With respect, in all the years that I worked in retail—you have not worked in retail like I have—it was the busiest day.

Retail Store Closure: Boxing Day — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (12 Dec 2016)

Andrea Jenkyns: No, sorry, I was talking to the hon. Member for Warrington North (Helen Jones), but thank you, Mrs Moon. My point is that we need to provide this opportunity. I know so many students who would welcome the opportunity to work on Boxing day and new year’s day to earn extra money and, as has been said, what about hospitality workers or those who work in the NHS? Are we just going to ban...

Retail Store Closure: Boxing Day — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (12 Dec 2016)

Andrea Jenkyns: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (16 Nov 2016)

Andrea Jenkyns: Last Tuesday, I attended an infection prevention and control summit that highlighted the great work done by the Department of Health, the NHS and other organisations dramatically to decrease MRSA infection rates, yet also raised the growing threat of E. coli and sepsis. Will my right hon. Friend join me in commending such events and outline the Government’s strategy for combatting...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (14 Nov 2016)

Andrea Jenkyns: During my visit to The Morley Academy, Michael Cornfoot, the senior assistant principal, inquired about the new nine-to-one grading system for GCSEs. He would like more clarity on how to assess performance against a grade. What work are my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State and her Department doing to clarify the system and to ensure that students are assessed accurately?
