Stephanie Peacock: In my constituency, two thirds of residents who are initially rejected for PIP and ESA are shown to be eligible on appeal. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that that suggests the whole work capability system requires much more reform?
Stephanie Peacock: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, if he will place in the Library a copy of the version of the Universal Credit transition rollout schedule published on his Department's website on 16 October 2017 which was subsequently removed.
Stephanie Peacock: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, pursuant to his Oral Statement of 23 November 2017, Official Report column 1201, on Universal Credit, if he will list the Job Centre Plus in which the date for full-service Universal Credit was delayed in the revised roll-out plan compared with the previous roll-out transition plan.
Stephanie Peacock: Class sizes in Barnsley are above the national average. As a former teacher, I know the impact that that can have. Does the Secretary of State accept that it has a detrimental impact on pupils?
Stephanie Peacock: Businesses are not currently covered for the consequent losses that my hon. Friend is talking about. There have been calls for that insurance gap to be closed. Given that the situation could be so substantially changed by such a small change to the Reinsurance (Acts of Terrorism) Act 1993, does he think that the Government should act? Are insurance companies doing enough to help the situation?
Stephanie Peacock: I have hundreds of constituents who have paid into the scheme and deserve the money, in contrast to the Government, who have not made a contribution since 1994. In discussions, the Government have said that they do not intend to agree to changes that are not in their interests. This is simply not fair. They need to think again.
Stephanie Peacock: To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, with reference to Autumn Budget 2017, paragraph 6.27, what his policy is on public sector pay awards in financial year 2018-19 for employees not covered by an independent Pay Review Body.
Stephanie Peacock: One of the major concerns of disabled people in my constituency is about the impact of universal credit. I note that in the right hon. Gentleman’s statement last week, he postponed the roll-out of universal credit in his constituency and those of the Prime Minister and the First Secretary of State. As he is in the mood to reconsider the policy, will he do the same and pause the roll-out...
Stephanie Peacock: Only 10% of children on free school meals in Barnsley go on to university. Can we have a debate in Government time about social mobility in Britain, as our future economic success depends on all children having the opportunities to succeed?
Stephanie Peacock: As a former teacher, I have heard lots of stories from teachers about keeping a supply of sanitary products in the classroom so that girls do not miss out on education because of poverty. Does the hon. Lady agree that that should not be the responsibility of teachers? The Government should do something. The Secretary of State for Education is also Minister for Women and Equalities.
Stephanie Peacock: Does my hon. Friend share my concern that the number of legal aid providers has fallen by 20% since the Government changed the eligibility criteria?
Stephanie Peacock: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, if her Department will continue to fund the Autism Education Trust to help ensure that teachers in England can access training in autism as part of their continuous professional development.
Stephanie Peacock: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, if his Department will develop scientific training in autism for work coaches in Jobcentre Plus.
Stephanie Peacock: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, pursuant to the Answer of 11 September 2017 to question 9014, on sign language: GCSE, for what reason it is not Government policy to include British Sign Language as a GCSE; and if she will make a statement.
Stephanie Peacock: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what plans he has to allocate funding to the NHS to finance the lifting of the NHS pay cap.
Stephanie Peacock: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what assessment has he made of the adequacy of access to mental health services for children and young people in (a) Barnsley East constituency and (b) Barnsley; and will he make a statement.
Stephanie Peacock: Loneliness affects around 2,500 people in Barnsley. Does my hon. Friend agree that as Christmas approaches, local projects such as Age UK’s Barnsley Christmas friendship café play an important role in tackling loneliness?
Stephanie Peacock: On family planning, we have seen cuts to the NHS and the closure of family planning centres across the country. We need to look at education—not just family planning support but education in schools, too. This debate is about protecting women who have made the most difficult decision of their lives. They will seek support in advance rather than doing so as they go into the clinic.
Stephanie Peacock: I thank the hon. Lady for securing this debate. I recently had a case raised with me where a couple purchased a leasehold flat from a developer. Once they had completed on the purchase, they were informed that the advertised service charge was going to be doubled. They were given no explanation, and when they asked questions, the company could not explain why it was doubling its fees. Does...
Stephanie Peacock: A recent poll that included my local police force showed that more than 70% of officers were stressed, many citing excessive workloads because far fewer officers are on the street. Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that we should bear in mind the impact of the cuts on police officers, as well as on the communities they serve?
