Estimates Day: Department for Education (3 Jul 2018)

Emma Hardy: It is a pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Ellesmere Port and Neston (Justin Madders). The debate on school funding always appears to follow the same tired pattern. Teachers, parents, education trade unions and the Opposition parties all point to the facts: increased class sizes; the number of teachers leaving the profession; the lack of adequate support for children with...

Estimates Day: Department for Education (3 Jul 2018)

Emma Hardy: Has the hon. Gentleman read the recent report that looked into the issue of there being more children in good and outstanding schools? It said that the number of children in such schools had increased because the number of children had increased. Actually, a high number of such schools have not seen an inspection since 2010. Does he agree that the figure could be at least a little misleading?

Estimates Day: Department for Education (3 Jul 2018)

Emma Hardy: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

Estimates Day: Department for Education (3 Jul 2018)

Emma Hardy: Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that the whole pupil premium system needs to be reviewed in order to look at children facing bereavement and at different eligib—eligibil—[Interruption.] I will get there in the end.

Estimates Day: Department for Education (3 Jul 2018)

Emma Hardy: I obviously do. Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that we need to look at different criteria—I will go with that word—for children qualifying for the pupil premium?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (2 Jul 2018)

Emma Hardy: The PIP assessment has disproportionately and unfairly impacted on people with epilepsy, with 60% having their budgets reduced when they move from DLA to PIP. This is nearly 20% higher than for any other condition. Will the Government admit that the current assessment process is not fit for purpose for people with epilepsy and set out what is being done to improve it?

Prime Minister: Points of Order (27 Jun 2018)

Emma Hardy: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I rise to ask your advice on a matter of exceptional importance to my constituents. As you know, I have been seeking for quite some time now to get a simple, clear answer to what I believe to be a simple, clear question. I have written to Ministers, put in written questions and asked questions during oral questions, and so far I have been unable to get a...

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

Emma Hardy: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms McDonagh. I pay tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Tooting (Dr Allin-Khan) for her work on raising this issue. When I was a child, it was evident to everybody who came to my house that I had an incredibly obsessive football-supporting father. They spotted it from the moment they stepped into the lounge and saw the football shrine...

Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill: Committee Stage (19 Jun 2018)

Emma Hardy: I made a point earlier about Hull East and Hull West. There is also a proud fishing tradition among the Hessle Road community in Hull, which goes back for years. The new boundary will divide that community—a community that has existed for hundreds of years. Does my hon. Friend agree that that should be looked at again?

Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill: Committee Stage (19 Jun 2018)

Emma Hardy: The hon. Gentleman has my full sympathy when he talks about constituencies crossing boundaries. It might sound like a joke to Members, but the fact that the new constituency boundaries would cross over from east Hull into west Hull is felt very deeply by people in my area. There is a strong and long-standing division between the east and the west, yet the new boundaries would take a lump out...

Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill: Committee Stage (19 Jun 2018)

Emma Hardy: Further to those last two points, would my hon. Friend acknowledge that the amount of constituency work required from a Member often bears no relation to the number of people on the electoral register? I dare say that about a third of the people who come to my surgeries for advice and support are not registered to vote.

Medicinal Cannabis: Upskirting (18 Jun 2018)

Emma Hardy: One of my constituents, Leah, summed it up best when she said that this abhorrent act could happen to any woman, regardless of age, class, race or sexual orientation. Will the Minister please ensure that the new legislation on upskirting will grant anonymity in any criminal case to protect the women who suffer from this disgusting practice?

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Property Rental Market (18 Jun 2018)

Emma Hardy: There are 22,000 properties in Hull with a housing, health and social care rating hazard category of 1, the highest hazard rating that there is, and all these properties are in the private rented sector. The cost of repairing and removing these hazards is £23.5 million. Who does the Minister think should pay for that? Does he think it should be councils or private landlords? If he thinks...

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

Emma Hardy: I will use this opportunity to focus on continuing the great work of my predecessor the right hon. Alan Johnson and his campaign to ensure that Hull has the much needed child and adolescent mental health unit in our constituency. We all accept that mental health is a huge problem, and I was proud to play a part in the Education Committee’s joint report on failing a generation which...

Gaza: Un Human Rights Council Vote: Private Members’ Bills: Money Resolutions (21 May 2018)

Emma Hardy: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for North East Somerset (Mr Rees-Mogg). In my 11 years as an infant teacher, I found that one of the lessons that children find the hardest to learn is that, just because they do not get the outcome they want does not mean that they get to change the rules. Sometimes there were tears and tantrums, but I have insisted with my own children that they...

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Government Procurement: Small Businesses (16 May 2018)

Emma Hardy: FCC Environment has public sector contracts across 160 constituencies, yet it refuses to pay its workers sick pay. The workers in Hull have been out on strike for more than 30 days after one of their colleagues developed cancer and had to return to work after a month because he could not afford to be off work. Will the Minister please look at reforming the rules for procurement so that no...

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

Emma Hardy: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for South Suffolk (James Cartlidge). I want to focus my comments on private rented accommodation and fairness. We all know that there are many fantastic private landlords out there across the country who offer a high-quality service for the people living in their accommodation, but we also know that there are many who do not. The issue of fairness...

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

Emma Hardy: I thank my hon. Friend for that contribution. That is exactly the point that I wish to make. The Ministry’s data shows that in Kingston upon Hull there were a total of 22,132 properties in the local authority area with a housing health and social care rating category 1 hazard—all of them in the private rented sector. A category 1 hazard is one that poses a serious threat to the...

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

Emma Hardy: Does my hon. Friend recognise that some companies see the leasehold issue as so toxic that they are moving away from it altogether, as a local company has done in my constituency?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Further Education Providers: Funding (14 May 2018)

Emma Hardy: As the Minister will know, Hull College has been one of the recipients of Fresh Start funding. However, a condition of the funding is that the college can spend only 60% of its income on staff, which has led to its having to get rid of 231 full-time equivalent posts—one in three jobs going from Hull College. Will the Minister explain where the figure of 60% came from, and how will she...
