Royal Assent: Independent Complaints and Grievance Policy (19 Jul 2018)

Rachael Maskell: We have had an excellent debate, conducted in very much the right tone. We exist in communities, not least this parliamentary community, so every decision that we make, action we take and word we speak has an impact. There are huge inequalities of power throughout society and, to date, that has also been true of this place. It is because of that inequality of power that we find ourselves...

Royal Assent: Independent Complaints and Grievance Policy (19 Jul 2018)

Rachael Maskell: The reality is that this is about amendment of the Standing Orders, which govern the procedures of the House, so while I accept that the motion is not necessarily in the right place, without the amendment it could lead to the identity of a reporter being exposed.

Royal Assent: Independent Complaints and Grievance Policy (19 Jul 2018)

Rachael Maskell: I have just checked Standing Order No. 150(12)(b) again, and its wording will not protect anonymity if there is no change. I am disappointed that the motion is not quite right and nor is the amendment. Therefore, because of the risk the amendment brings of breaching the confidentiality of a reporter in these cases, it cannot be supported, but we must address this issue in the six-month...

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

Rachael Maskell: NHS Property Services has been required to dispose of the Bootham Park Hospital site. The city urgently needs capacity for new health services, yet developers want to move on to the site to build luxury apartments—we have far too many of those. Can we have a debate about public interest in the disposure of public sites?

Exiting the European Union: Support for Farmers (19 Jul 2018)

Rachael Maskell: The chemicals regulation division of the Health and Safety Executive regulates biocides and pesticides under the EU REACH—registration, evaluation, authorisation and restriction of chemicals—regulation. The pesticides have to be tested within the EU, so we will lose that work on 29 March 2019. Will the Government buy into the new replaced EU body, losing 300 jobs in York and...

Access to Orkambi (17 Jul 2018)

Rachael Maskell: My hon. Friend is making a very important speech. As I know from being a physio who worked with cystic fibrosis patients, when making an assessment of the cost of treating cystic fibrosis, we must look at the social cost, the economic cost and the immense cost of keeping somebody alive. Does he agree that Orkambi would be a solution to that, let alone addressing the human cost?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Small Business Sector (17 Jul 2018)

Rachael Maskell: There may be a lot of discussion between the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and the Treasury, but the reality is that there is no action on business rates. Our retail sector is closing down and 200,000 businesses have been taken to the magistrates court for non-payment, so when will we have a review of business rates and when will we see change?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Air Quality (12 Jul 2018)

Rachael Maskell: What the implications are for his policy on air quality of the report of the Committee on Climate Change, “Reducing UK emissions—2018 Progress Report to Parliament”.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Air Quality (12 Jul 2018)

Rachael Maskell: The Committee on Climate Change has been scathing about the Government’s abysmal response to the UK’s seriously poor air quality, citing the fact that we are now on course to miss the fourth and fifth carbon budgets. Many of us struggle to breathe due to air pollution, and around 50,000 people die prematurely each year, while the Government have spent hundreds of thousands of...

Increasing Choice for Rail Passengers (11 Jul 2018)

Rachael Maskell: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mrs Moon. I know what an interest you and other south Wales MPs have in the rail network, not least since we saw the announcement of de-electrification last summer. I thank the hon. Member for Weston-super-Mare (John Penrose) for bringing this debate to the Chamber. There was another debate on the same subject only yesterday afternoon. It is...

Increasing Choice for Rail Passengers (11 Jul 2018)

Rachael Maskell: I am watching the time. I will not go over my halfway mark.

Increasing Choice for Rail Passengers (11 Jul 2018)

Rachael Maskell: Five minutes?

Increasing Choice for Rail Passengers (11 Jul 2018)

Rachael Maskell: No one has ever told me that before, so thank you, Mrs Moon. I will come to my conclusion. We want to ensure that the rail system works for passengers, that it improves social mobility, that it drives our whole economy forward and that it causes modal shift, to ensure that people are not getting into their cars, as they are today, but back on to the railways. That is why Labour’s model...

ESA: People with Motor Neurone Disease (11 Jul 2018)

Rachael Maskell: My hon. Friend is making an excellent speech. I was a physiotherapist working in neurology, so I have a good understanding of motor neurone disease. It is crucial that individuals are able to live their lives to the full in the time that they have, as opposed to facing the barriers put in place by the benefits system. Does he agree that welfare should be support, rather than a battle all the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Topical Questions (9 Jul 2018)

Rachael Maskell: The Reserve Forces and Cadets Associations want to dispose of Duncombe barracks in York. Will the Ministry of Defence ensure that they work with City of York Council and use the principles of One Public Estate, so that the land is developed in the housing interests of the city, rather than that of developers?

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

Rachael Maskell: It was a Labour Government who established the NHS, and today we thank all who have served in it since. Following the Secretary of State’s statement on the timetable chaos to the House on 4 June, he said in his response to the hon. Member for Cleethorpes (Martin Vickers) that, with regard to compensation, the train operating companies “will have to meet the cost of...
