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...

Grenfell Update: The Economy (22 Mar 2018)

Vicky Ford: I agree with my council leader in so many ways, but the leader of Chelmsford City Council is not responsible for the education budget; that is covered within the Essex County Council area, where more frontline delivery of children’s services is happening every year. On the issue of tax, it is vital to remember that it is this Government who have made sure that the wealthier pay the...

Grenfell Update: The Economy (22 Mar 2018)

Vicky Ford: I refer the hon. Lady back to what my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister said at Prime Minister’s questions yesterday, when she reaffirmed that the top 1% of earners are paying more tax than ever before. Skills are absolutely vital to our future. I remember that under the last Labour Government over 1 million young people—those under the age of 25—were not in employment,...

Grenfell Update: The Economy (22 Mar 2018)

Vicky Ford: The benefit of apprenticeships is that apprentices are earning as well as learning. When I met some of those 5,350 young people who are doing apprenticeships in my constituency—especially those in financial services, which I will talk about later—they told me how happy they were to be earning while also learning. I also recognise that enabling small businesses to take on...

Grenfell Update: The Economy (22 Mar 2018)

Vicky Ford: Absolutely. I thank the hon. Lady for that intervention, because I was the only British MEP involved in the negotiations on the last European collaborative research project. I was pleased to hear the Minister responsible for science and research confirming that he intends to continue that type of collaboration—provided that it is still focused on excellence, value for money and so...

Grenfell Update: The Economy (22 Mar 2018)

Vicky Ford: I will give way to my right hon. Friend, because she has done something amazing in relation to maths skills.

Grenfell Update: The Economy (22 Mar 2018)

Vicky Ford: I am so delighted that my right hon. Friend has said that, because that is exactly the point. The Government have done a transformational thing by saying that we will give schools £600 more for every pupil who studies maths, which will be great at getting more pupils to choose the subject. However, if I may say so, the issue is not just with maths, but with physics. Forty per cent. of...

Grenfell Update: The Economy (22 Mar 2018)

Vicky Ford: May I call on the hon. Gentleman, who is meant to be good at maths, to withdraw his statement about school dinners? Instead, will he confirm that following the debate and vote that we held last week, we will give school dinners to 60,000 more children, including young Josh whom I met in my constituency last week?

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (22 Mar 2018)

Vicky Ford: On this day last year, I remember being in the Westminster Parliament during our attack and lockdown. I also remember two years ago on this day being in the Brussels Parliament during that attack. How does the Minister intend for us to continue to interact with Europe on data issues after we have left the EU?

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Artificial Intelligence (22 Mar 2018)

Vicky Ford: What steps his Department is taking to support the development of artificial intelligence.

Health and Social Care: Life Sciences Industrial Strategy (20 Mar 2018)

Vicky Ford: Part of the life sciences strategy is about ensuring that we have the skills for the future. May I thank the Secretary of State for the fantastic news about the five new medical schools opening in the country, including in Chelmsford?

Cambridge Analytica: Data Privacy (19 Mar 2018)

Vicky Ford: I have been the victim of false news stories being micro-targeted at Facebook accounts in my constituency to deliberately undermine me and cause hate. I thank the Secretary of State for prioritising the Data Protection Bill and delivering the general data protection regulation to make sure that our law is clear and enforceable. How does he intend to work with Governments in other countries to...
