Preparations for Leaving the EU (8 Oct 2019)

Rosie Duffield: Thank you, Mr Speaker. In the light of recent fake news from the Prime Minister about a shiny new hospital in Canterbury, which currently has no A&E or urgent treatment centres, can the Minister please guarantee that, with the possible chaos resulting from Operation Brock, my constituents will still be able to get to the William Harvey Hospital in Ashford for the urgent care that they...

Domestic Abuse Bill (2 Oct 2019)

Rosie Duffield: So what is domestic violence or abuse, and where do we get our ideas about it from? Often we see the same images and stereotypes on TV: housing estates, working-class families, drunk men coming home from the pub, women surrounded by children, and a sequence of shouting, followed by immediate physical violence or assault. But soap opera scenes tend to focus on only one or two aspects of a much...

Prime Minister's Update (25 Sep 2019)

Rosie Duffield: Can the Prime Minister please explain fully and clearly to the House and the nation exactly how getting on with Brexit honours the memory of our beloved colleague and sister, Jo Cox, given that she was violently killed while campaigning with her young family to remain in the EU?

Health and Social Care: Rural Areas: Access to Health Care (23 Jul 2019)

Rosie Duffield: It has now been almost 18 months since health commissioners proposed that the two options for acute medical care in east Kent be put forward for public consultation. My constituents, particularly those in rural areas, are simply fed up with waiting for a new hospital. Will the Minister please confirm for me today just when a full public consultation on the future provision of acute services...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: TV Licences for Over-75s (4 Jul 2019)

Rosie Duffield: If he will make it his policy to maintain free TV licences for the over-75s after 2020.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: TV Licences for Over-75s (4 Jul 2019)

Rosie Duffield: In my constituency of Canterbury, there are some 6,250 households at risk of losing their free TV licence. Why are the Government failing to live up to their responsibility to older residents? Is it simply the case that they are entirely complacent about receiving their support in any upcoming general election?

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Local Government Efficiency (17 Jun 2019)

Rosie Duffield: Is the Secretary of State aware that 544 homes across Kent managed by East Kent Housing have not been regularly subjected to vital landlord gas safety assessments, and has he had conversations with the four local authorities, cash-strapped themselves, across the affected parts of Kent to make sure that this never happens again?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Immigration System (10 Jun 2019)

Rosie Duffield: On Thursday night, a 17-year-old schoolboy visiting Canterbury from Germany was violently attacked in our city centre. He is now fighting for his life. I thank the Home Secretary for intervening personally to enable the boy’s family to travel to be at his bedside, and I am extremely grateful for his—and his team’s—rapid response, kindness and hard work over the weekend. In the light...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (15 May 2019)

Rosie Duffield: As this is Mental Health Awareness Week, does the Prime Minister agree with the Labour party that it is time to scrap tests for pre-teenage children, such as SATS and, in Kent, the 11-plus, which we know cause them to experience stress, anxiety and a sense of failure?

Environment and Climate Change (1 May 2019)

Rosie Duffield: I am relieved and pleased that today my party is urging the Government to declare an environmental and climate emergency. It is our duty to do so on behalf of every citizen of not only the UK but the world: those who do not have the chance to raise their voices in this place and those who have raised their voices outside here in many towns and cities across the country and beyond our shores....

School Funding (25 Apr 2019)

Rosie Duffield: I should like to start by correcting a misunderstanding about my question to the Prime Minister during PMQs on 13 March. After letters and meetings with local headteachers, I asked why the Secretary of State had failed to meet a group of Kent headteachers about school cuts. They wrote to me as part of the Coastal Alliance Co-operative Trust. However, following investigations by my office and...

South-Eastern Rail Franchise (23 Apr 2019)

Rosie Duffield: Further to his letter of 10 April in which the Under-Secretary of State assured Members that robust scrutiny would be used in this decision-making process, can he please reassure my beleaguered constituents in east Kent that that scrutiny will also apply to the exorbitant fare rises, constant delays and disruptions, arbitrary timetable changes and removal of services?

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Home Ownership (8 Apr 2019)

Rosie Duffield: What assessment he has made of trends in the level of home ownership among under-45-year-olds since 2010.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Home Ownership (8 Apr 2019)

Rosie Duffield: Many of my constituents are simply priced out of the housing market. Rental properties and mortgages are out of reach to all but the wealthiest, meaning that families who have lived for generations in villages such as Bridge, Chartham and Sturry, where their parents and grandparents grew up, are now simply unable to afford a property. Will the Minister acknowledge that we urgently need...

Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Mar 2019)

Rosie Duffield: On Friday, some of the excellent headteachers in my constituency sent their pupils home with letters detailing to parents how their budgets have been slashed by 8% and how they are struggling to make ends meet. On three separate occasions since September 2018 they have asked for a meeting with the Secretary of State for Education to discuss school funding shortages in Kent, but they have...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Feb 2019)

Rosie Duffield: I have a constituent who was left doubly incontinent following a serious and violent sexual assault. She previously had a lifetime award for disability living allowance. However, recent personal independence payment assessments have concluded that she is not entitled to DLA or the mobility components of PIP, despite her extremely difficult condition, which dominates every aspect of her daily...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Homelessness: Death Rates (28 Jan 2019)

Rosie Duffield: What steps his Department is taking to reduce the death rate among homeless people.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Homelessness: Death Rates (28 Jan 2019)

Rosie Duffield: This week I spoke to the Hepatitis C Trust and my local homeless charity, Porchlight, who highlighted rough sleepers as a significantly vulnerable group in terms of alcohol and drug dependency. What steps are the Secretary of State and his Department taking to help homeless people to access mental health and addiction services?

Exiting the European Union: Universities (24 Jan 2019)

Rosie Duffield: What recent discussions he has had with representatives of the university sector on the UK leaving the EU.

Exiting the European Union: Universities (24 Jan 2019)

Rosie Duffield: Both of my large universities in Canterbury tell me that they have had no communication whatever from the Brexit Secretary, his Ministers or his Department. Given that 10% of their students and 25% of their staff are from the EU, and they are heavily involved in research programmes, as we have heard this morning, will the Minister or his Department reach out to my universities? I am sure that...
