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. I welcome the focus brought by this industrial strategy, and particularly its focus on innovation. I am proud to serve on the Science and Technology Committee. It is science and research that delivers...

Vicky Ford: Will the hon. Lady give way?

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?

Military Action Overseas: Parliamentary Approval (17 Apr 2018)

Vicky Ford: Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that it is the role of the Government to put our citizens’ safety first, and that the Government therefore have to have the power to act in the national interest for security, and to act swiftly and confidentially, taking into account the safety of our servicemen and our allies’ servicemen?

Health Services in Essex (17 Apr 2018)

Vicky Ford: I join my right hon. Friend in praising the new school of medicine to train the next generation of doctors in Chelmsford. I heard from the vice-chancellor last week that more than 400 people have already applied to be among that first intake of 100. Does she agree that investing in the next generation of doctors, especially GPs, is crucial to delivering better health services in the future,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (17 Apr 2018)

Vicky Ford: Last night, the pound hit its highest rate against the dollar since the referendum. Will the Chancellor join me in welcoming this sign of international confidence, which is so contrary to the run on the pound predicted by the shadow Chancellor?

Syria (16 Apr 2018)

Vicky Ford: The Leader of the Opposition suggested that Britain acted only because it was instructed to by the US. I find that hugely disrespectful to the British Government, the British armed forces and our allies in France. Does the Prime Minister agree that it is vital that the Government can take action rapidly when it is needed and that it is vital to send a message to Putin and Assad that we are...

Written Answers — Treasury: Galileo System (29 Mar 2018)

Vicky Ford: To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, what contribution the UK has made to the European Union's Global Satellite Navigation System to date.

Vicky Ford: To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, what contribution the UK has made to the Copernicus Programme to date.

EU Referendum: Electoral Law: National Security and Russia (26 Mar 2018)

Vicky Ford: I spent last weekend with a group of British and German MPs discussing, among other things, Russia and global security. We face from Russia a new and growing threat, teetering on the edge of outright hostility, and it is not in our interests to have unstable or rogue states on the borders of Europe. As well as an angry Russia, we have an unpredictable North Korea and a changing face in China....

EU Referendum: Electoral Law: National Security and Russia (26 Mar 2018)

Vicky Ford: On misinformation, does my hon. Friend agree that money spent on negative messaging is much more damaging than efforts that we can counter with positive messaging? Negative messaging undermines the voter and is much more difficult to counter with the positive.

EU Referendum: Electoral Law: National Security and Russia (26 Mar 2018)

Vicky Ford: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

EU Referendum: Electoral Law: National Security and Russia (26 Mar 2018)

Vicky Ford: I am trying to listen very hard to what the right hon. Gentleman is saying. Can he confirm that he agrees that there is no other plausible explanation than the Russian state being responsible for the chemical attack on British soil?

Petition - Royal Bank of Scotland Closure: Phenylketonuria and Kuvan (22 Mar 2018)

Vicky Ford: I would like to bring to the House’s attention the condition known as phenylketonuria and the drug sapropterin, which is known under the trade name Kuvan. I very much thank my hon. Friend the Member for Spelthorne (Kwasi Kwarteng) for being here today; he raised the same matter in an Adjournment debate six years ago. I also thank the Minister—another fantastic Essex MP—for...

Petition - Royal Bank of Scotland Closure: Phenylketonuria and Kuvan (22 Mar 2018)

Vicky Ford: I thank the hon. Gentleman very much for his comments. I completely agree that we need to look at the wider issues. In fact, we should also look at what happens if the condition is not successfully managed, because that can be even more expensive. For example, if a woman with PKU gets pregnant and the condition is not well managed, the child she bears will be at very high risk of having...

Grenfell Update: The Economy (22 Mar 2018)

Vicky Ford: It is a great honour to follow the hon. Member for Shannon, which is a beautiful part of our United Kingdom, and it is great to hear so much positive news. [Hon. Members: “Strangford!”] I mean the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon). I know the area well. I have frequently said that the economy must come first, because only with a strong economy can we maintain our public...

Grenfell Update: The Economy (22 Mar 2018)

Vicky Ford: Is it now the largest ever? I thank my hon. Friend. Those are phenomenal targets, ambitions and spending, but they are coupled with specific, targeted actions to unlock some of the most innovative sectors. It has been great to be in the House when we have been discussing how to unlock investment in the next generation’s batteries so that we can get the automated vehicles sector up and...
