The Secretary of State’S Handling of Universal Credit (11 Jul 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: My hon. Friend is making an excellent speech. Precisely on that point—which I have raised repeatedly with Ministers, but to no avail—does she accept that the Government’s position of not allowing advice agencies to help people with their claims after they changed the implied consent rules is shown to be completely bankrupt when such a high proportion of people cannot get...

Backbench Business: Air Passenger Duty — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (10 Jul 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: It is a pleasure to speak in this debate with you in the Chair, Sir David. I congratulate the hon. Member for Belfast East (Gavin Robinson) on securing the debate, which has been very inclusive and interesting, and on his illuminating speech. Many of these issues have been discussed before, as the hon. Gentleman mentioned. They were foreshadowed in our debates about recent Finance Bills, in...

Backbench Business: Air Passenger Duty — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (10 Jul 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: I beg the hon. Gentleman’s pardon. I am very sorry about that. He will perhaps be even more perplexed when I mention that, rather than pound pinching, my family talked about looking after the pennies and the pounds looking after themselves. Perhaps that reveals a psychological difference between lowland and Ulster Scots. Of course, we need to look after the pennies and the...

Backbench Business: Air Passenger Duty — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (10 Jul 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: I was pleased to hear the Minister say from a sedentary position that they are working on that. I hope the UK Government will do so with rather more application than they did on support for the steel sector, of which I had an inside view as a Member of the European Parliament: they made no attempt to secure clearance for the kind of support we saw applied in countries such as Romania, which...

Backbench Business: Air Passenger Duty — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (10 Jul 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for those comments. I acknowledge that there is not necessarily the awareness to ensure that it does have such an impact. Some of the matters he just raised have led to calls for a redesign of the duty, which some believe could lead to a greater environmental impact. One suggestion, which was examined in 1998, was whether it would be better to levy the duty...

Backbench Business: Air Passenger Duty — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (10 Jul 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for that interesting point. Hypothecation of tax is relatively unusual in the UK. My party believes—he will expect me to say this—that there needs to be much more investment in those technologies. That would be positive for our country, whether funds are hypothecated from a particular area or found through other mechanisms. One other aspect of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: HMRC: Office Closures (3 Jul 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: Eight years of economic failure from this Government have been exacerbated—[Interruption.] I suggest that it is economic failure, with productivity growth down, GDP growth down and investment growth down, and in comparison with our comparators. Economic failure: if it smells like it and looks like it, that is what it is. Let me finish my question. That failure has been exacerbated by...

Prime Minister: Engagements (27 Jun 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: On Saturday, I was at BMW Cowley with 15,000 people, all of them BMW workers and their families. Just two days later, we had the starkest warning yet from BMW about the damage of a chaotic deal on Brexit for customs processes. When will the Prime Minister’s Government ditch the ideology and in-fighting and prioritise reaching a workable deal on customs?

Football: Safe Standing — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (25 Jun 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Robertson. I pay tribute in particular to the previous two speakers, my hon. Friends the Members for Garston and Halewood (Maria Eagle) and for Liverpool, Walton (Dan Carden). They speak from experience and their discussions with people who have been through a huge amount. I do not want to talk specifically about the principle of safe...

Petition - Menc Vaccine: Sound Reading System and Literacy (14 Jun 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: I am grateful to the Minister for her very helpful remarks. However, the point I was trying to make about the sound reading system is precisely that it is not commercial. It does not have the commercial firepower behind it that is needed for its dissemination, yet it produces incredibly strong results. What more can we do to promote not-for-profit approaches, such as the sound reading system?

Petition - Menc Vaccine: Sound Reading System and Literacy (14 Jun 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: I am grateful to have the opportunity to discuss in the House the sound reading system and describe its promise for improving literacy. The sound reading system was developed in my constituency of Oxford East, and it has shown remarkable results when it comes to enabling children and adults to read, often for the first time. However, its sustainability is in doubt, which is why I am so...

Immigration Rules: Paragraph 322(5) (13 Jun 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: The hon. Lady is being generous in giving way, and she is making a very powerful speech. Does she not agree that the Home Office was made aware of such issues in letters from me and others present in this Chamber back in mid-March, but no action was taken? Having such a delay in action is simply not good enough when that is affecting people’s lives in such a terrible manner.

Leaving the EU: Parliamentary Vote — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (11 Jun 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: I gently point out that this debate is not on the subject of having a people’s vote, but on Parliament’s ability to have more options as part of a meaningful vote, including—specifically for the petitioners—the option of remaining in the EU. I just want to clarify that, because many thousands of people signed the petition and it is important that we talk about the...

Leaving the EU: Parliamentary Vote — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (11 Jun 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for the speech she is making and to the petitioners for raising this important subject. Does she agree that amendment 19, which is due to be voted on this week, would prevent the kind of Hobson’s choice the petitioners are concerned about? Over 600 people in my constituency appear to be concerned about that, because they have signed this petition.

Royal Assent: NHS Outsourcing and Privatisation (23 May 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Faversham and Mid Kent (Helen Whately). She spoke with characteristic gusto, even if—I am sorry to say it—I did not agree with a single word she said. I want to underline how privatisation is sapping resources from our NHS, in Oxford East and elsewhere in the country, at the very time it needs them more than ever, because of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: PFI Contracts (22 May 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: We have learned from the experience of PFI; this Government—[Interruption.]

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: PFI Contracts (22 May 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: Thank you, Mr Speaker. This Government have not. In the light of last week’s report on Carillion, we want to know whether the Minister can indicate which PFI contracts are being delivered by contractors that are deemed to be actually or potentially high risk. Following last week’s reports that failed bidders for PFI contracts will be compensated, can he rule out bailing out firms...

Building Regulations and Fire Safety (17 May 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: Fire safety regulations were wrongly covered by the one in, two out statement of new regulation. Will the Secretary of State commit today to excluding fire safety regulations from the statement’s successor, the business impact target, which is currently being devised for this Parliament?

Rating (Property in Common Occupation) and Council Tax (Empty Dwellings) Bill: Housing and Homes (15 May 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: Oxford is now the least affordable place in Britain to buy a home, with the average home costing 16 times average salaries. Rents have rocketed, and we now have up to 60 people rough sleeping on our streets of a night. That has happened despite huge local efforts to improve the situation. At least half of new developments in Oxford must be affordable housing, of which 80% must be at social...

Rating (Property in Common Occupation) and Council Tax (Empty Dwellings) Bill: Housing and Homes (15 May 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: When my hon. Friend says that housing is a right and particularly that it is a right not to live in damp housing, does she agree that, thanks to the efforts of a Labour Member, tenants can now take their landlord to court, but they need legal support to do that?
