Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Public Services: West Midlands (6 Dec 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: In 2010, the Conservative-led Government set out to reform the school curriculum in order to give our children the skills they need to succeed. Does the Prime Minister agree with me that yesterday’s reading standards results are a vindication of our reforms and our amazing teachers’ efforts, which will allow our children to forge a truly global Britain?

Point of Order: Autism Community: Mental Health and Suicide (30 Nov 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: It is a pleasure and honour to speak in this debate, secured by the hon. Member for East Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow (Dr Cameron), because it is such an important issue. It is critical to make sure that those on the autistic spectrum are absolutely wrapped up in our mental health and medical services so that we no longer need even to raise this issue in the House. To that effect, the...

Point of Order: Autism Community: Mental Health and Suicide (30 Nov 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: I thank the hon. Lady for her comments. Despite the cross-party efforts of all those for whom this is a passionate policy area—for 18 years I have cared for my son, who is now a young adult with autism—there are some people who are having a miserable time in the mental health system and are not yet benefiting from improved access to core therapies and services: men and women...

Point of Order: Autism Community: Mental Health and Suicide (30 Nov 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: I absolutely agree. I work closely in my constituency with the families who are supporting their autistic children. Clearly, dealing with strangers, with the unfamiliar, and with group dynamics is possibly one of the most difficult things to ask an autistic young person—or indeed an older person—to take on. We have for too long neglected the research into mental health therapies...

Point of Order: Autism Community: Mental Health and Suicide (30 Nov 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: The hon. Lady is exactly right. I have experienced many times the meltdown of a small child in a supermarket aisle and had people either offer a word of support or—usually—criticise me for being a bad parent. The line I always used was, “You tell me when you have an autistic child and take them shopping, and I’ll tell you what the problem is”. It is very...

Air Force (Constitution) Act 1917 — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (23 Nov 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: Sexism, sir!

International Trade: UK Export Finance (23 Nov 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: What steps his Department is taking to promote to British companies the use of UK Export Finance.

International Trade: UK Export Finance (23 Nov 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: Berwick-upon-Tweed, Alnwick and Amble now have innovative high-tech software businesses designing unique products that have serious global market potential. Can the Minister confirm that these businesses will be able to access UK export finance to reach into new countries, boost British exports and bring new high-tech jobs into my constituency? He is, of course, welcome to stop off on his way...

Women and Equalities: BAME Women (23 Nov 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: Does the Minister agree that the welcome announcement in the Budget yesterday of £600 per pupil towards the study of maths at higher than GCSE level will be of huge benefit for BAME women, and women across the board, because many studies show that women with higher science, technology, engineering and maths qualifications can earn up to 20% more?

Representation of the People (Young People’S Enfranchisement and Education) Bill (3 Nov 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: As my hon. Friend knows I am a passionate advocate of no taxation without representation. Does he agree that it is perhaps time to consider stopping the taxation of those under 18 whom we wish to stay in education or training, which is part of the policy that he talks about?

Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill (3 Nov 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: It is a pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Hertsmere (Oliver Dowden), and I congratulate the hon. Member for Croydon North (Mr Reed) on all his work in bringing this Bill to the Floor of the House which, as my hon. Friend the Member for Banbury (Victoria Prentis) highlighted, is an extraordinary feat. I have only been in the House for two years, but it is evident that to beat...

Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill (3 Nov 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: I thank the hon. Lady for her intervention, with which I absolutely agree. I am pleased that the number of people being held in police cells has fallen dramatically in the past few years, but, as we have seen this week, if people feel that they are suffering injustice, they should always take it to the police or, if that is where the problem or inappropriateness lies, find another outlet to...

Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill (3 Nov 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his intervention, and I agree absolutely that we need to get the training right in the first place; understand unconscious bias, which we all invariably suffer from, not only in general life, but within the complex environment of mental ill health; and ensure that de-escalation techniques are learned and constantly reiterated. Such an approach would allow the...

Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill (3 Nov 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention. She is right: so often the circumstances of patients in the units has meant that people have been able to develop more sophisticated techniques and de-escalation programmes, and this best practice needs to be shared. That is the great challenge, as it so often is in education and in other parts of our public services. We need to find an effective...

Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill (3 Nov 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: My hon. Friend is exactly right. It is incumbent on us as we go forward with this Bill to set these new markers to ensure that we get a cultural change; we need that understanding that mental ill health is part of our life experience and most of us may well suffer from it in one form or another. For those who are the most vulnerable we absolutely need to ensure that the practices are the best...

Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill (3 Nov 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. Interestingly, even in the social media world we all live in, a storm of anonymity allows a level of poor behaviour. If the body-worn camera empowers people to remember that anything from good manners and good behaviour to constructive dialogue rather than more violent interventions is the way forward, this must be a tool we should be encouraging across the...

Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill (3 Nov 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: My hon. Friend is exactly right. These common-sense measures could have a dramatic impact on the way our mental health units work, and for the well-being of both staff and those who are there receiving treatment. Another important aspect of the Bill is the proposal that justice for a potential victim would now become possible. Our country and our values are based on the rule of law, but for...

Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill (3 Nov 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: I would be happy to work with my hon. Friend on that. Perhaps it is something we need to look at more widely. The extraordinary staff at special schools look after children with a breadth of needs that are never the same for two days running or for any two children. We must ensure that they are empowered with the right skills and techniques to support these children, who can lead fulfilling...

The Prime Minister Was Asked: Engagements (25 Oct 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: Does the Prime Minister agree that as we leave the EU and take control of our land management policy, our manifesto commitment to plant 11 million trees is a critical part of the holistic countryside management framework that we can now build to ensure long-term home-grown wood for our housing industry, as well as increasing our natural carbon capture potential and reducing flood risks?

Petition - Warwick Road, Carlisle: School Funding: North Northumberland (11 Sep 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: I thank you, Mr Speaker, and especially so this evening as we find ourselves the last ones standing after a lengthy evening of voting on the important European Union (Withdrawal) Bill. Northumberland voted to leave the EU, as I did, and as we progress the people’s call, I want to make sure that the children currently coming through the schools in my constituency, and those who will...
