Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Anna McMorrin: It is obvious once again that this Government care more about saving face than serving the people of this country. This Conservative Government say that they are improving the lives of working people and getting people back into work, yet they are ignoring pleas from across this Chamber and the country to halt the roll-out of this shambolic universal credit system. We are being told that...

Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Anna McMorrin: No, I will not give way. The reality is that this accelerated and aggressive roll-out will see an increase in debt, rental arrears, food bank usage, and homelessness—people struggling to make ends meet, with real-life consequences. I know of one family who have had their two children taken into care because they were forced to move into a tent in a park after being evicted when their...

Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Anna McMorrin: No, I will not give way. We are also seeing 475 needless deaths every year across Wales alone because vulnerable people are unable to afford to heat their homes. Homelessness and fuel poverty are set to get worse under this system. We have a Welsh Labour Government tackling it, but their arms are tied behind their backs with this roll-out of universal credit. I am deeply concerned about the...

Clean Growth Strategy (12 Oct 2017)

Anna McMorrin: This long-awaited strategy sets out a good story, and I welcome the sentiment that it contains. In reality, however, it makes a mockery of clean growth and does not give any certainty for business. The ability to compete in global low carbon markets and meet our needs from clean energy is the foundation of a prosperous low carbon economy. At the moment, the Government are failing to give a...

Business of the House (12 Oct 2017)

Anna McMorrin: S4C, the Welsh language public service broadcaster based in my constituency, is undergoing a review, which was announced in August. Will the Government be making a statement on that review? When can we expect any announcement that will guarantee S4C’s future as a unique and valuable broadcaster in Wales, offering quality and innovation?

Written Answers — Department of Health: Surrogate Motherhood (12 Oct 2017)

Anna McMorrin: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what plans he has to review legislation on surrogacy.

Written Answers — Department of Health: Surrogate Motherhood (12 Oct 2017)

Anna McMorrin: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, with reference to the oral contribution of the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Health of 7 February 2017, Official Report, column 214, whether the Government plans to introduce (a) a remedial order or (b) an urgent remedial order to allow single parents to apply for parental orders.

Written Answers — Department of Health: Surrogate Motherhood (12 Oct 2017)

Anna McMorrin: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, whether his Department has a serious intention to pursue its request to the Law Commission to include a project on surrogacy in the 13th programme of law reform.

NHS Pay (13 Sep 2017)

Anna McMorrin: Is modesty perhaps preventing my hon. Friend from mentioning that he himself has, at times, acted as a midwife?

Princess Royal Hospital Telford: UK Nationals in the EU: Rights — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (12 Sep 2017)

Anna McMorrin: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Cambridge (Daniel Zeichner) on securing this important debate and making such forceful opening comments. The Prime Minister’s limited and conditional offer on citizens’ rights is too little, too late. EU nationals in the UK and UK nationals in the EU must not be used to bargain with. We are playing with human lives. The...

Petition - Climate Change Objectives and Obligations: Tesco House, Cardiff: Job Losses (19 Jul 2017)

Anna McMorrin: Does the Minister agree that these are not normal redundancy circumstances? Does she agree that the DWP should dispatch the emergency taskforce to help those affected to seek new employment, and work with the Welsh Government as well?

Petition - Climate Change Objectives and Obligations: Tesco House, Cardiff: Job Losses (19 Jul 2017)

Anna McMorrin: Will the Minister join the Leader of the House in condemning the way in which Tesco made this announcement? When I asked the Leader of the House about this shortly after the announcement, she was appalled at the way things had been done.

Petition - Climate Change Objectives and Obligations: Tesco House, Cardiff: Job Losses (19 Jul 2017)

Anna McMorrin: I am grateful for the opportunity to raise the issue of the closure of the Tesco customer operations centre in my constituency of Cardiff North with the loss of up to 1,100 jobs. If you will allow me, Madam Deputy Speaker, I shall do three things: first, highlight the way in which Tesco has acted; secondly, describe the human impact of these actions; and finally, explore how we respond to...

Petition - Climate Change Objectives and Obligations: Tesco House, Cardiff: Job Losses (19 Jul 2017)

Anna McMorrin: Yes. Some staff members who were not there that day only actually found out that they had lost their jobs through social media. There also seems to have been no formal means of contacting them or managing their concerns. Following the announcement, I met Tesco executives to press them on their reasons for the job losses and why jobs in Dundee have seemingly been prioritised over jobs in...

Petition - Climate Change Objectives and Obligations: Tesco House, Cardiff: Job Losses (19 Jul 2017)

Anna McMorrin: I absolutely agree with my hon. Friend. I think that these job losses are the latest in a string of cuts implemented as part of the so-called turnaround plan by Dave Lewis, the group chief executive, who joined Tesco in autumn 2015.

Petition - Climate Change Objectives and Obligations: Tesco House, Cardiff: Job Losses (19 Jul 2017)

Anna McMorrin: I absolutely agree with my hon. Friend that it should be questioned on that, and I will address the issue later in my speech. In his first year in charge as the group chief executive, Mr Lewis axed nearly 5,000 head office staff and UK store management jobs, as well as more than 4,000 roles overseas and at the group’s banking division. More than 2,500 jobs were lost with the closure of...

Petition - Climate Change Objectives and Obligations: Tesco House, Cardiff: Job Losses (19 Jul 2017)

Anna McMorrin: I think it is absolutely the case that the company is prioritising management over the hard-working workforce, who are highly skilled and motivated. I suspect that nearly every Member of this House has a Tesco store in their constituency. It is one of the UK’s biggest and most recognisable brands, with a loyal customer base.

Petition - Climate Change Objectives and Obligations: Tesco House, Cardiff: Job Losses (19 Jul 2017)

Anna McMorrin: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his support. In his desire to achieve more savings, Mr Lewis needs to understand that he has an absolute responsibility to treat his employees fairly and with respect. He owes them a duty of care and he should listen to what his staff are saying. In the days following the announcement, I went to the customer centre to meet the staff affected, along with my hon....
