Finance (No. 3) Bill: Basic rate limit and personal allowance (19 Nov 2018)

Vicky Ford: Does my hon. Friend agree that the fact we should be looking at is the fact reported by the OECD that the proportion of jobs that are low paid is at the lowest level for the past two decades? We should be celebrating that.

Finance (No. 3) Bill: Basic rate limit and personal allowance (19 Nov 2018)

Vicky Ford: Does my hon. Friend agree that for every £1 those on low income pay in tax, £4 of public spending goes towards them, whereas for those on higher income, for every £5 they pay in tax they receive only £1 back in public spending, and that is because we are a fair society, which means that well-off people contribute to helping those on lower incomes?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: PIP and Universal Credit: Tribunal Appeals (19 Nov 2018)

Vicky Ford: If 9% of PIP decisions are being appealed against, does that mean that more than nine out of 10 people do not appeal against theirs because they do not wish to challenge them? Will the introduction of video recording improve that rate so that there is even more confidence that the decisions are right?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (19 Nov 2018)

Vicky Ford: May I also say how nice it is to see the Secretary of State back on the Front Bench? Will she look at improving access to universal credit for those leaving prison, so that those who have left prison will not face delays in getting money in their pocket and thus be driven back into a cycle of crime?

EU Exit Negotiations (15 Nov 2018)

Vicky Ford: Many of the questions asked by colleagues today would be addressed if there were more detail on the future relationship, but of course it has been the EU negotiators, not the British negotiators, who have refused to discuss the future relationship before the withdrawal agreement is agreed, so I thank the Prime Minister for the outline of the future relationship. Will she clarify that we will...

Women and Equalities: Equality Act 2010: Commencement of Section 106 (15 Nov 2018)

Vicky Ford: I know that the Minister has committed to increasing the number of women in Parliament. Does she agree that we have a woman Prime Minister and strong women Secretaries of State, like the woman beside her at the Dispatch Box, the Secretary of State for International Development, who should be congratulated on the support and the leadership they show to women across the country?

Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill (14 Nov 2018)

Vicky Ford: I want to speak briefly in support of the Bill. There are 190,000 UK expats living in other parts of the EU, many of whom are retired, as well as 50 million British citizens who travel to the EU on their holidays and on business every year, and they all need access to healthcare. Since 2004, they have been able to benefit from the European health insurance card, which has made it much easier...

Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill (14 Nov 2018)

Vicky Ford: I intervene on an extremely important point. The EHIC does give reciprocal care, but it is not the equivalent of health insurance. If someone has a very serious accident, it does not pay for the travel costs, for example, of coming back to the UK, which other health insurance policies would do. So while this is fantastic and I will be voting in favour of it, it is not the equivalent of having...

EU Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice (13 Nov 2018)

Vicky Ford: It is an honour to speak in this debate. It is also quite challenging, because we have heard from a number of people with deep legal experience, many of whom are hon. and learned Friends, and I am not a lawyer. However, I speak as someone who has a vast amount of negotiating experience. I spent eight years in the European Parliament leading international negotiations—in fact, I participated...

EU Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice (13 Nov 2018)

Vicky Ford: Let me take this further, and move on to the issue of transparency. I believe that transparency is enormously important, and it is important that all Members should understand the full legal ramifications of the deal that is negotiated before we hold our vote. After all, the relationship between the EU and the UK is vital to all of us, and there are highly sensitive areas involved, especially...

EU Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice (13 Nov 2018)

Vicky Ford: I am deeply unclear—are you asking for publication of the final advice or of any legal advice in full that has happened during the entire negotiation? [Interruption.] With due respect, I am being asked for my vote regarding the motion on the Order Paper. Are you asking for what is on the Order Paper, which is, “any legal advice in full”— that is, during the whole negotiation? Are you...

EU Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice (13 Nov 2018)

Vicky Ford: rose—

EU Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice (13 Nov 2018)

Vicky Ford: No.

EU Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice (13 Nov 2018)

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

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (13 Nov 2018)

Vicky Ford: When a prisoner commits a serious violent offence in prison, will Ministers take action to ensure that prosecutions for such offences result in additions to the prisoner’s sentence, not concurrent sentences?

Finance (No. 3) Bill (12 Nov 2018)

Vicky Ford: On police funding, when the Government proposed hundreds of millions of pounds of additional funding for the police by raising the police precept, why did the Labour party vote against it? [Interruption.]

Finance (No. 3) Bill (12 Nov 2018)

Vicky Ford: I thank the hon. Gentleman for giving way—I was listening. What does he intend to do to individuals earning over £80,000 a year?

Finance (No. 3) Bill (12 Nov 2018)

Vicky Ford: The shadow Minister just said that the Bill is light on content, but it is 315 pages long. I have just read his Labour party document, “Funding Britain’s Future”, which is eight pages long, three of which are footnotes. What am I missing, sir?
