Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Tracy Brabin: Time dictates that I should speak about one section of the community for whom universal credit will have a particularly devastating impact: the self-employed, and specifically actors and creatives. Most entertainers are self-employed. It has been established by case law and accepted by HMRC that entertainers should usually be classed as self-employed for tax purposes, but universal credit...

The Rohingya and the Myanmar Government (17 Oct 2017)

Tracy Brabin: I commend my hon. Friend the Member for Bethnal Green and Bow (Rushanara Ali), who is no longer in her place, for enabling us as parliamentarians to bear witness to this atrocity and to hear extremely powerful speeches from Members on both sides of the House; but sadly, speeches are not enough. Anyone who heard the testimony a few days ago of the mum whose young daughter’s hand slipped...

The Rohingya and the Myanmar Government (17 Oct 2017)

Tracy Brabin: I will keep going. The EU had also placed an embargo on weapons and equipment. That is all good, but it is not enough. We need to ban new investment in and business relationships with military-owned companies and members of the military and their families. We need to reinstate the annual General Assembly resolution on human rights in Myanmar. The international community, including the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Police Funding (16 Oct 2017)

Tracy Brabin: What assessment she has made of the adequacy of the 2015 funding settlement for police authorities.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Police Funding (16 Oct 2017)

Tracy Brabin: “With officer numbers at 1985 levels, crime up 10% in the last year and police work becoming ever more complex, this additional pressure is not sustainable. The current flat cash settlement for forces announced in 2015 is no longer enough.” Those were the words of Britain’s most senior police chief. Which part of that does the Minister disagree with?

Free Childcare — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (12 Oct 2017)

Tracy Brabin: I think I mentioned the parallel universe to the Minister in the Chamber. The nursery provider in his example has six nurseries and may be able to square the circle, but we are also concerned about the smaller providers.

Free Childcare — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (12 Oct 2017)

Tracy Brabin: Will the Minister give way?

Free Childcare — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (12 Oct 2017)

Tracy Brabin: I thank the Minister for giving way. Does he intend to cap those costs? Such charges will be what keep nurseries’ lights on and their staff employed. Will there be a two-tier system, and will he cap the costs?

Free Childcare — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (12 Oct 2017)

Tracy Brabin: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Rosindell. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for High Peak (Ruth George) for securing this much needed debate. We have heard some interesting and important contributions. I will just go through a few of them; unfortunately, time does not allow me to mention everyone. My hon. Friend the Member for High Peak powerfully claimed that the...

The Arts: Health Effects (11 Oct 2017)

Tracy Brabin: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Dorries. I thank the right hon. Member for Wantage (Mr Vaizey) for securing the debate, especially after yesterday’s timely World Mental Health Day. In my previous job, I was an actor and a writer, and I used to think, “What do I contribute to the world?” My sister, who is a theatre nurse, used to say, “When I come...

Adjournment (February, Easter, May Day and Whitsun): Devolution: Yorkshire (10 Oct 2017)

Tracy Brabin: I thank my hon. Friend for making that point, because we started with a proposal for a West Yorkshire mayor and then for a lesser Yorkshire mayor, and we now have one for a Greater Yorkshire mayor. This should be less about the political colour of the mayor and more about councillors and other politicians working together to make swift decisions so that the people of Yorkshire, and...

Access to NHS Dentists (12 Sep 2017)

Tracy Brabin: Does my hon. Friend agree that it is deeply worrying that 29% of five-year-olds in Kirklees have decayed, missing or filled teeth, and that in March 2017 NHS Digital told us that one in three children in Kirklees have not seen an NHS dentist for the past 12 months?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Free Childcare (11 Sep 2017)

Tracy Brabin: In their manifesto, the Government said that they would deliver high-quality childcare for working families, supported by thousands of new nursery places every year. However, as they roll out their policy of 30 hours of free childcare, Ministers have admitted that 110,000 children of working parents will not be eligible for the extended childcare entitlement simply because their parents do...

Free Childcare Entitlement (6 Sep 2017)

Tracy Brabin: (Urgent Question): To ask the Secretary of State for Education if she will make a statement on the implementation of free childcare entitlements.

Free Childcare Entitlement (6 Sep 2017)

Tracy Brabin: Last Friday, the flagship policy of 30 free hours of childcare for working parents was introduced. It was a policy shrouded in secrecy, misinformation and mayhem, and now is the time for answers. From the beginning, the application process was not fit for purpose. Parents were unable to get their code, settings were run ragged trying to help parents, and this afternoon parents who have been...

Free Childcare (18 Jul 2017)

Tracy Brabin: Thank you, Mr Speaker, for granting this urgent question. What a shame it is that, when we could be weeks away from a great breakthrough for providers, parents and most importantly children, we are instead discussing a policy that is riddled with holes—and, my word, are there questions to answer! Just yesterday the Minister’s colleagues in the Treasury admitted in response to one...

Taylor Review: Working Practices (11 Jul 2017)

Tracy Brabin: The Taylor review recommends that the Government should make it easier for people in flexible arrangements to take their holiday entitlement. In the past, the Minister has struggled to explain the Government’s powers in this area. Will she tell us what powers currently exist to enforce the payment of holiday pay and, with the summer fast approaching, will she act on the Taylor...
