Deferred Divisions: Education (Student Support) (9 May 2018)

Vicky Ford: I thank the Minister for the announcement that he has just made. At the nursing college in Chelmsford, and also at Cambridge and Peterborough, we have 30% more qualified applicants, but there have been fewer applicants for mental health nursing. This targeted intervention will really help to address that need. Will he confirm that this will be locally based where necessary—that is, in...

Deferred Divisions: Education (Student Support) (9 May 2018)

Vicky Ford: The hon. Lady is making a very powerful point, but we need to be very focused with our intervention. I represent an area that has a nursing school. Although applications have dropped, we still have five applicants for every place and 30% more qualified applicants for every place, so if we are to take measures, we need to make sure that they are very targeted in the areas in which we intervene.

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Guidance about how to seek redress against media organisations (9 May 2018)

Vicky Ford: I am pleased to hear the Secretary of State refer to a low-cost scheme. People have told me about their concern that £60,000 may be too low because there needs to be a deterrent. Will the four-year review also cover that £60,000 cap?

Windrush (2 May 2018)

Vicky Ford: It has been a huge honour to sit in the Chamber and listen to so many powerful speeches. I start by thanking the members of the Windrush generation, because time and again we have heard stories about how so many of those individuals have each helped to build the Britain that we know and love today. Like many others in this place, I regularly have constituents who come to me, asking for help...

Backbench Business: Financial Services — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (26 Apr 2018)

Vicky Ford: I thank hon. Members for their contributions. Many times since joining this place, I have heard hon. Members take very angry and aggressive positions in opposition to each other. It is good, on this calm and quiet Thursday afternoon, to hear hon. Members speaking in support of the financial sector, and about their pride in it and in the way the people who work in it and in the related...

Backbench Business: Financial Services — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (26 Apr 2018)

Vicky Ford: The hon. Member for Glasgow Central (Alison Thewliss) said she is extremely concerned about how soon we can give certainty in the EU negotiations. There are two sides to giving certainty. The Government’s statements—especially the detailed HSBC Canary Wharf speech—contain a huge amount of detail about the need for ongoing co-operation. The EU negotiators have also talked...

Backbench Business: Financial Services — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (26 Apr 2018)

Vicky Ford: On legal certainty, I completely agree. It is only five or six stops on the Jubilee line to get to Canary Wharf, so I took the bother to go and listen to every single word that was said in that speech. I wish more Members from this House had bothered to go and listen to it and to speak to the industry players who were there afterwards, because it went into detail and addressed very important...

Backbench Business: Financial Services — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (26 Apr 2018)

Vicky Ford: On bank branch closures, I too commend the suggestion about bringing together many banks to operate out of the same premises, although that could be difficult to achieve. People have raised with me the issue of depositing cash. The people who run the church or school fête tend to have large quantities of small denominations of cash. Is there more we can do to ensure that the Post Office...

Backbench Business: Financial Services — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (26 Apr 2018)

Vicky Ford: I beg to move, That this House has considered the financial services and the impact on the UK economy. It is a privilege to serve under your leadership, Sir David. I thank the Backbench Business Committee for granting time to discuss this important matter, and the 16 Members who supported the application. They all agree that the financial services sector is of specific importance and that the...

Home Office Removal Targets (26 Apr 2018)

Vicky Ford: What steps he is taking to reduce levels of plastic waste in the marine environment.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Plastic Waste (26 Apr 2018)

Vicky Ford: I was delighted by this morning’s news that all our top supermarkets will ensure that all their plastic is recyclable within seven years. We know that half the plastic in the oceans comes from developing countries, but only 0.1% of our overseas aid is spent on helping those countries to deal with waste. Will you work with the International Development Secretary to increase that amount?

Laser Misuse (Vehicles) Bill [Lords] (Programme): Industrial Strategy (18 Apr 2018)

Vicky Ford: We are in the middle of the fourth industrial revolution—a time of huge technological, demographic and environmental change—and the decisions we make now are crucial to our future.

It is science and research that delivers...

Laser Misuse (Vehicles) Bill [Lords] (Programme): Industrial Strategy (18 Apr 2018)

Vicky Ford: I thank my right hon. Friend for giving way and for the commitment he is making to ensuring that world-class talent from across the world can continue to come to support science in Britain. When the president of the Royal Society came to speak to the Science and Technology Committee, he pointed out that world-class scientists need to be mobile, anthropologists need to work abroad and those...

Gender Pay Gap (18 Apr 2018)

Vicky Ford: The World Economic Forum does an annual survey of the gender pay gap in 200 different countries. I am very pleased that the UK ranks in the top 10% in the world, although much more can obviously be done. Will the Minister look at the recommendation of the charity, Bliss, to give more support to mothers of very premature babies? They are a small number of women who could do with some extra help.

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Technology: Developing Countries (18 Apr 2018)

Vicky Ford: Last weekend, the Government announced that they would spend another £25 million on cleaning up plastic from the seas and on new research into that. Developing countries are responsible for half of the plastic in our seas, but less than 1% of our overseas aid budget goes on helping those countries with waste management. Should we increase that percentage?
