Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (11 Sep 2018)

Tonia Antoniazzi: The Chancellor will be aware of Macmillan Cancer Support’s long campaign to introduce a duty of care on financial services providers to ensure that vulnerable customers get the support they need to stop financial problems escalating. The Financial Conduct Authority has now published a discussion paper on the introduction of a duty of care. Will the Chancellor commit to meeting Macmillan...

Business of the House (6 Sep 2018)

Tonia Antoniazzi: Recent research from Swansea University shows that more and more students are paying other people to do their assignments. The Governments of Ireland and Australia have committed to following the lead of New Zealand and the USA by banning the advertising and provision of so-called essay mills. May we have a debate in the House on banning this practice in the UK in order to safeguard the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (5 Sep 2018)

Tonia Antoniazzi: According to the patients’ group End Our Pain, there has been a near total refusal of NHS trusts to back applications for medical cannabis. The Home Secretary has only paid lip service to two high-profile cases and has not proposed a workable solution for other desperate children and adults across the UK. The Prime Minister could show real leadership and solve this for hundreds of...

Animal Welfare (Service Animals) Bill: Music Festivals: Drug Safety Testing (6 Jul 2018)

Tonia Antoniazzi: I am concerned about drugs on the streets of city centres. Does my hon. Friend agree that many police forces would welcome the opportunity to explore safety testing in city centres across the UK, particularly on student nights out or at weekends?

Energy Policy (25 Jun 2018)

Tonia Antoniazzi: rose—

Energy Policy (25 Jun 2018)

Tonia Antoniazzi: I have been a teacher in Wales for 20 years, and I am devastated by today’s news. Pupils throughout Wales have been studying an exciting new future promised to Wales by this Government, and now it is not going to happen. The fig leaf of a city deal will not hide the Government’s shortcomings in Swansea. This is a clear dereliction of duty. If they have no aspiration for Wales,...

Cannabis-Based Medicines (19 Jun 2018)

Tonia Antoniazzi: I welcome the move that the Home Secretary has made, on behalf of my constituents. It is really important to me that the grandfather of Charlie Jones and the parents of Jace Newton-Sealey know how to go about applying for a licence. Will the Home Secretary and his Department make the process clear, so that people know how to access a licence?

Medicinal Cannabis (18 Jun 2018)

Tonia Antoniazzi: To ask the Home Secretary if he will make a statement on the granting of an emergency licence to allow the return of medical cannabis for Billy Caldwell.

Medicinal Cannabis (18 Jun 2018)

Tonia Antoniazzi: I would like to thank the Minister for coming to the House today to discuss this urgent question. The Home Secretary has now conceded that cannabis has medicinal benefits by granting the emergency licence for Billy Caldwell on expert advice. When can we expect to see more import licences to make medicinal cannabis available to all who would benefit from it? Moreover, will the Government...

Medicinal Cannabis (18 Jun 2018)

Tonia Antoniazzi: I will conclude right now. Why are the Government stuck in the dark ages? What will the Home Secretary do to speed up the process? In response to, “When?” the answers, “Next week,” “Next month,” or “In due course,” are simply not good enough.

Offences Against the Person Act 1861 (5 Jun 2018)

Tonia Antoniazzi: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Walthamstow (Stella Creasy) on securing this emergency debate. I was proud to stand in solidarity with Members across the House yesterday to bring the debate forward. It stuns me that the Government will pander further to the DUP to force their agenda through the House—as they will particularly next week, no doubt—by selling the...

Offences Against the Person Act 1861 (5 Jun 2018)

Tonia Antoniazzi: Unfortunately I am unable to. In the absence of a Northern Ireland Assembly, Westminster has a duty to stand up for the women of Northern Ireland. Is waiting for the Assembly to uphold the rights of women in Northern Ireland not just a way of avoiding taking action altogether? The roll-out of universal credit, as we have all heard, penalises women who decide to have a third child, even if...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (5 Jun 2018)

Tonia Antoniazzi: One of the most upsetting cases I have dealt with over the past 12 months was where my constituent’s children were sexually abused by their father. I would like to thank the Under-Secretary of State for Justice, the hon. and learned Member for South East Cambridgeshire (Lucy Frazer), for her co-operation thus far. However, can the Minister explain why the victim’s criminal...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: PIP Assessors: Mental Health Awareness (21 May 2018)

Tonia Antoniazzi: Some 75% of claimants in Wales who appealed against decisions to reduce or stop PIP were successful; that is 8,000 people in Wales who have needlessly worried about having payments stopped. The Prime Minister and the Secretary of State for Wales were unavailable to comment on this at the Welsh Conservative conference on Friday, but can the Minister tell the House when the Government are going...

Women and Equalities: Leaving the EU: Effect on Women (17 May 2018)

Tonia Antoniazzi: What discussions she has had with Cabinet colleagues on the effect of the UK leaving the EU on women.

Women and Equalities: Leaving the EU: Effect on Women (17 May 2018)

Tonia Antoniazzi: Is the Minister aware of how much EU funding specifically focuses on women and addresses the causes of gender inequality? Will she give assurances to the women of Wales and the rest of the UK that they will not pay a higher price when, or should, Brexit spark a downturn in the economy?

Business of the House (10 May 2018)

Tonia Antoniazzi: This week, the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Select Committee and the Welsh Affairs Select Committee held a joint hearing on the Swansea bay tidal lagoon. In Swansea and Gower, we are absolutely desperate for some good news, following the tragic job losses this week. Please can we have some good news for south Wales, and please will the Leader of the House find time to discuss the...

Safeguarding Children and Young People in Sport — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (1 May 2018)

Tonia Antoniazzi: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing the debate. Does he agree that all sports clubs, at whatever level, dealing with children should have whistleblowing policies under which they can refer themselves to a Government or sports organisation and procedures that are available for parents and children alike?

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Tonia Antoniazzi: The Northern Ireland shadow team, of which I am a member, paid a visit to Stormont. We met the leaders of all the parties, and they all expressed their concerns about the barrier. There must be no barrier at any price.
