Universal Credit Roll-Out (16 Nov 2017)

Vicky Ford: My understanding is that if a child received free school meals before, they will continue to receive them. It is only for those who are new to the benefit system that there may be a delay.

Universal Credit Roll-Out (16 Nov 2017)

Vicky Ford: I remember under the Labour Government that single mothers came to me who were unable to continue work because they were better off on benefits. Does the hon. Lady agree that the system of universal credit is to help people move into work, rather than be better off on benefits?

Universal Credit Roll-Out (16 Nov 2017)

Vicky Ford: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Universal Credit Roll-Out (16 Nov 2017)

Vicky Ford: I thank the hon. Lady for giving way. A number of us on the Conservative Benches would like to join her in condemning that letter, which we believe is illegal, and we would like to have a copy. Has she actually met the housing association to tell them that it is not legal?

Universal Credit Roll-Out (16 Nov 2017)

Vicky Ford: I thank my hon. Friend for listening on this issue, and I am listening hard because universal credit is soon to come to my constituency. I am pleased to hear him say that the advance payments help with the six-week gap. Has he looked at the repayment period for these advance payments, and is there enough flexibility in their repayment, especially for people who are challenged in getting back...

Universal Credit Roll-Out (16 Nov 2017)

Vicky Ford: We are all coming to visit.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Retaining Enhanced Protection (15 Nov 2017)

Vicky Ford: I want to pick up my right hon. and learned Friend’s point about consensus. As I understand it, new clause 55 is designed to send a clear message that the Government do not intend to lower standards for the environment, financial services or consumers without an open and transparent process. I have heard Ministers say from the Front Bench again and again that they do not intend to lower...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: The Economy (15 Nov 2017)

Vicky Ford: What recent assessment he has made of the strength of the Northern Ireland economy.

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: The Economy (15 Nov 2017)

Vicky Ford: Thank you, Mr Speaker. Does the Minister agree that although the recent performance of the Northern Ireland economy is strong—thanks, in large part, to the policies of this Conservative Government—the sparkling gem of our country that is Northern Ireland still has the potential to do better? Does he agree that that would be boosted by the restoration of an Executive with local...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Date of exit from the European Union (14 Nov 2017)

Vicky Ford: I completely agree with a vast amount of what my hon. Friend has said. Article 50 sets the date, but it also sets the process, and the last part of the process is a vote in the European Parliament. As I recall from my time in the European Parliament, it often asks for a little bit extra at the last minute. My concern about hard-wiring the date is that it makes it more difficult for our...

Exiting the Eu: Sectoral Impact Assessments (1 Nov 2017)

Vicky Ford: First, I am very glad that these impact assessments and cross-sectoral assessments exist. I said over a year ago that we should be looking at the detail. As a British Conservative in the European Parliament, I worked hand in hand with British Conservative Ministers to champion better regulation. I said that, before we made decisions, we should consult stakeholders, look at the different...

Finance Bill: Termination Payments Etc: Amounts Chargeable on Employment Income (31 Oct 2017)

Vicky Ford: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Finance Bill: Deemed domicile: review of protection of overseas trusts (31 Oct 2017)

Vicky Ford: I thank my hon. Friend for the work he has done on the detail of this Bill. Does he agree that clauses 29 to 32 remove the loophole of permanent non-dom status, but clause 8 means that the UK can continue to benefit from the approximately £9 billion a year from overseas investments, yet if we accept the Labour amendment we put that £9 billion at risk?

Finance Bill: Deemed domicile: review of protection of overseas trusts (31 Oct 2017)

Vicky Ford: We are debating a new clause that suggests that, within 15 months of passing the Bill, there should be another review. Fifteen months would be February 2019, a month before Brexit. Financial services companies are already having to rethink their operations to cope with Brexit. Does my hon. Friend agree that the new clause is a distraction that the sector does not need and that the sector...

Finance Bill: Deemed domicile: review of protection of overseas trusts (31 Oct 2017)

Vicky Ford: Does not the hon. Gentleman agree that a tax gap that is one of the lowest in the world is something that we should celebrate while we are debating a Bill about taxation? We should be thanking the Government for making sure that the taxes we approve are collected.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Prison Officer Safety (31 Oct 2017)

Vicky Ford: What progress the Government has made on improving the safety of prison officers.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Prison Officer Safety (31 Oct 2017)

Vicky Ford: In Chelmsford prison, the number of attacks against staff rose to more than 120 last year, but since then it has recruited more staff and installed innovative mobile phone detectors and it will soon roll out a new digital initiative; where that has been piloted, attacks on prison officers have more than halved. Will the Minister join me in welcoming that progress to put staff safety first?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Homes: Construction (30 Oct 2017)

Vicky Ford: What plans he has to increase the number of homes constructed each year; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Homes: Construction (30 Oct 2017)

Vicky Ford: Some 4,500 homes have been built at Beaulieu Park in Chelmsford and another 5,000-plus are planned, but the roads are at capacity and we need a new railway station and a bypass. That is Essex’s No. 1 priority for the housing infrastructure fund. Will the Minister meet me to discuss this important infrastructure to unlock housing?

Social Care (25 Oct 2017)

Vicky Ford: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker, for giving me the opportunity to speak on the extremely important subject of how we care for the elderly and the most vulnerable people in our society. I start by declaring an interest. I come from an NHS family, and the NHS is in my blood. My husband is a consultant oncologist, and the work that he and others do in the NHS is saving lives and ensuring that we...
