State Pension Age: Women (29 Nov 2017)

Bob Seely: This is an important cause that affects thousands of women on the Isle of Wight, and I have had the pleasure of meeting my WASPI representatives on several occasions. I thank my hon. Friend the Minister for his words on the issue; he knows I hold him in high regard. The Government have done good work on pensions and in many other areas that have improved the lives of pensioners. My hon....

State Pension Age: Women (29 Nov 2017)

State Pension Age: Women (29 Nov 2017)

Bob Seely: I am concerned that the right hon. Gentleman is not willing to listen to Government Front Benchers. I am sympathetic to the WASPI women, of whom there are nearly 10,000 on the Isle of Wight, but the reality is that the he can do something about it, but he will not. He is not taking interventions because he would rather score political points than fix this problem.

Rail Update (29 Nov 2017)

Bob Seely: Is my right hon. Friend aware that on the Isle of Wight there might be interest in extending the island line to the beautiful seaside town of Ventnor and the county town of Newport—the latter has been made possible in part due to the foresight of the Isle of Wight steam railway in securing track in decades past? Will money be available for feasibility studies to assess the costs and...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (23 Nov 2017)

Gaming Machines and Social Responsibility (31 Oct 2017)

There are 55 such machines in my constituency, and they have taken £19 million out of our economy since 2008. That money would frankly be best spent elsewhere. Will she comment on the gambling industry’s irresponsible and deeply...

Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Bob Seely: I have listened to this debate with an open mind, willing to criticise the Government if need be, especially if they were to fail my constituents on the Isle of Wight. However, the more I have listened, the more I believe that it is in our interests that universal credit should go ahead. I notice that the Opposition support that in principle. Apart from the relentless negativity, there have...
