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?

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....

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

Anna McMorrin: I absolutely agree with my hon. Friend about that, which is precisely why I brought this debate to the House. One worker told me: “We are absolutely devastated as my fiancée is currently on maternity leave with the birth of our baby daughter. We have also planned to get married next year so this news has come at the worst possible time for us in our lives and we are very worried...

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

Anna McMorrin: I agree with my hon. Friend: there has been no transparency on this issue, and that is what I would like to see. I call on the Minister to request it. I reiterate my deep disappointment at the way Tesco has handled the situation. I struggle to understand its rationale for losing such a highly dedicated workforce. As a company that supposedly values its workers, it should not want to lose...

Humanitarian Situation in Mosul: Grenfell Tower Fire Inquiry (12 Jul 2017)

Anna McMorrin: Does my hon. Friend agree that this Government should seek to introduce the legislation on the installation of sprinklers that we already have in Labour-run Wales?

Exiting the European Union and Global Trade (6 Jul 2017)

Anna McMorrin: I agree with what my hon. Friend is saying. Our markets and economy are on a cliff edge because of the Government’s irresponsible behaviour. May I correct the comments by the hon. Member for Stone (Sir William Cash) on sheep market imports? He misquoted Michel Barnier’s remarks about 12% tariffs. Actually, sheep market imports from outside the EU are subject to tariffs of 12%...

Women and Equalities: Equality and Women’s Rights: DUP Discussions (6 Jul 2017)

Anna McMorrin: What discussions she has had with the Democratic Unionist Party on the Government’s commitment to equality and women’s rights.

Women and Equalities: Equality and Women’s Rights: DUP Discussions (6 Jul 2017)

Anna McMorrin: Equality and tolerance are important British values that we should all be proud of, so will the Minister work to overturn the ongoing ban on equal marriage in Northern Ireland? Does she believe that £1 billion is a fair price to pay for selling off such fundamental values?

Brexit and Foreign Affairs (26 Jun 2017)

Anna McMorrin: I am grateful for the opportunity to make my maiden speech today. It is a privilege for me to follow Craig Williams as the Member for Cardiff North. I know how hard Craig worked to represent the constituency over the past two years. The recent election campaign was punctured by a number of tragic events, from Manchester to London. In Wales, there was another sad event, which brought together...

Business of the House (22 Jun 2017)

Anna McMorrin: Is the Leader of the House aware that yesterday Tesco announced that it will axe 1,100 jobs in my constituency? It was done with no consultation with either the UK or Welsh Government and some workers found out through social media that they were losing their jobs. That is shocking and wholly unacceptable behaviour, and will be devastating for all those concerned and for their families. Will...
