Mike Hill: I hope the definition will include the civil nuclear police, too.

Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill (20 Oct 2017)

Mike Hill: I understand the issues around capacity, but does my hon. Friend agree that mental health workers, by the nature of their jobs, are often at risk of assault, that such attacks need to be recorded and dealt with properly, and that adequate support needs to be provided to workers subjected to such assaults?

Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill (20 Oct 2017)

Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill (20 Oct 2017)

Mike Hill: This is not just about people saving lives. Attacks on firefighters who are putting out fires occur time and again. Does my hon. Friend agree that that is equally bad and needs the right level of punishment?

Backbench Business: Carbon Capture and Storage — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (19 Oct 2017)

Mike Hill: It is a pleasure to speak under your chairmanship, Sir David. I am grateful to the hon. Member for Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland (Mr Clarke) for securing this debate. As an MP who supports climate change initiatives and the reduction of carbon emissions, I am pleased that the Government are now recommitting to CCS as part of their clean growth strategy, in order to meet legally...

Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Mike Hill: In Hartlepool, where universal credit is already in place and therefore not being rolled out, I am seeing for myself not only the effects of implementation and the six-week delays, but the damaging effect of the drive to passport constituents in receipt of other benefits on to universal credit at any and every opportunity. I have seen people in the most desperate circumstances—starving,...

Royal Mail Delivery Office Closures — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (11 Oct 2017)

Mike Hill: Thank you for letting me speak in this important debate, Mr Gapes. I pay tribute to the Communication Workers Union, whose members feel strongly about this matter, and have voted overwhelmingly to strike in protection of their pay and pensions. Since the privatisation of Royal Mail in October 2013, as my hon. Friend the Member for Dulwich and West Norwood (Helen Hayes) said, 142 delivery...

Supported Housing Funding — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (10 Oct 2017)

Mike Hill: One of the providers in my constituency says that the shortfall in local health authority funding will be around £3.3 million, leaving the most vulnerable people without a roof over their heads. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that that is an intolerable situation for people to be in?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Mike Hill: I have cut down my speech, because it is almost the witching hour and the Brexit Minister needs to weave his magic. I represent the town of Hartlepool and the outlying villages. I have about 96,000 constituents, and in the EU referendum, of those who voted, more than 70% voted to leave—the highest percentage in the north-east. Clearly, the vast majority of people in my constituency want...

16-to-19 Education Funding — [David Hanson in the Chair] (7 Sep 2017)

Mike Hill: As my hon. Friend knows, Hartlepool has excellent sixth-form and FE college provision. Hartlepool College of Further Education, which also provides an education for his constituents in Easington and east Durham, offers a diverse range of apprenticeships providing bespoke skills for the future jobs market, and is the second highest performing college in England. Yet it is struggling with debt...

Bills Presented: Tuition Fees (19 Jul 2017)

Mike Hill: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker, for giving me the opportunity to make my maiden speech today. As the first person in my family to attend university—on a grant, a wing and a prayer—I know just how difficult it is to survive university, let alone be saddled with debts as a result of tuition fees. I begin by paying tribute to those who elected me—the most wonderful, friendly,...
