Eleanor Smith: What steps he is taking to ensure that employment law protects and supports self-employed workers.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Self-employed Workers (17 Jul 2018)

Eleanor Smith: Like my hon. Friend the Member for Leeds West (Rachel Reeves), I want to draw the Minister’s attention to the plight of many self-employed workers in today’s modern workforce. More and more people are classed as self-employed, but they have no protection rights. They have no redundancy rights, no pension protections, no sick pay, no holiday pay and no parental leave pay. Why do...

National Health Service (11 Jul 2018)

Eleanor Smith: I beg to move, That leave be given to introduce a Bill to re-establish the Secretary of State’s legal duty as to the National Health Service in England and to make provision about the other duties of the Secretary of State in that regard; to make provision for establishing Integrated Health Boards and about the administration and accountability of the National Health Service in England;...

BAME Blood, Stem Cell and Organ Donation — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (27 Jun 2018)

Eleanor Smith: Other organisations are also trying to do that, such as the African Caribbean Leukaemia Trust, but they get very limited resources. One of my recommendations is about sharing resources with groups that are already organised and going out to the community, because with limited resources they do very little.

BAME Blood, Stem Cell and Organ Donation — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (27 Jun 2018)

Eleanor Smith: I thank my hon. Friend for securing this timely debate. My review, “Ending the Silent Crisis”, is about the lack of stem cell and organ donation in black and minority ethnic groups. I hope that the Minister will look at the review’s recommendations, take them on board and come back to us on them.

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

Eleanor Smith: On PFI hospitals, the National Audit Office report recently found “no evidence of operational efficiency”, and that in the NHS, “the cost of services, like cleaning…hospitals is higher under PFI contracts.” Will the Chancellor explain why his Government persist with imposing higher costs than necessary on local health budgets instead of ensuring value for money...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Apprenticeship Starts (14 May 2018)

Eleanor Smith: What assessment he has made of trends in the level of apprenticeship starts since the introduction of the apprenticeship levy.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Apprenticeship Starts (14 May 2018)

Eleanor Smith: Last year, the Government set a target of 2.3% of the workforce for public bodies on employing apprentices, yet following a series of parliamentary questions by the shadow Education team we have discovered that the vast majority of Departments, including the Department for Education, are failing to hit that target. If the Department is unable to meet such targets internally, how are we...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Carillion (1 May 2018)

Eleanor Smith: What steps he is taking to support businesses affected by the liquidation of Carillion.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Carillion (1 May 2018)

Eleanor Smith: Since my last question about Carillion, 239 jobs have now been lost in Wolverhampton, which is a huge loss to our city. The Express & Star, a local newspaper in Wolverhampton, has said that hundreds of suppliers and subcontractors will be left unpaid, which means more job losses. How does the Department plan to provide support for those businesses and their workers?

Minors entering the UK: 1948 to 1971 — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (30 Apr 2018)

Eleanor Smith: I am one of the second generation of Windrush; my parents came in 1954. I really do not understand why people have to prove that they live in this country when they have children aged 30 or older and probably have grandkids, too. Why are we talking about having to prove it? Why can we not just give them a blanket exception? I do not understand why, if people have entered the country from 1948...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Departmental Funding (23 Apr 2018)

Eleanor Smith: What recent discussions he has had with the Chancellor of the Exchequer on the adequacy of funding for his Department.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Departmental Funding (23 Apr 2018)

Eleanor Smith: The National Audit Office found that the MOD had not included £9.6 billion of forecast cost in the 2017 equipment plan, including the cost of buying the Type 31e frigates. Does the Secretary of State think that that kind of mismanagement is likely to help his discussions with the Chancellor about additional funding?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Pension Protection Fund: Former Carillion Employees (26 Mar 2018)

Eleanor Smith: What steps she is taking to ensure support for former Carillion employees whose pensions will not be covered by the Pension Protection Fund.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Pension Protection Fund: Former Carillion Employees (26 Mar 2018)

Eleanor Smith: The workers in the Carillion defined contribution scheme should not have to suffer any detriment to their pension. Will the Government be looking to draw back bonuses paid to the Carillion executives to put back into the pension funds?

NHS Staff Pay (21 Mar 2018)

Eleanor Smith: I absolutely appreciate the Secretary of State’s announcement on pay. As a nurse who has worked for more than 40 years, I know that it is greatly welcomed by everybody across the patch, including porters. I want to ask, however, about wholly owned subsidiary staff. I believe that some of them are not under “Agenda for Change” terms. Will they get the pay rise as well?

Health and Social Care: NHS Trusts: Wholly Owned Subsidiary Companies (20 Mar 2018)

Eleanor Smith: What estimate he has made of the number of NHS trusts that have established wholly owned subsidiary companies.
