Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: War Widows (15 Jan 2018)

Rosie Duffield: If he will reinstate the war widows’ pension for widows who were required to surrender that pension due to remarriage or cohabitation.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: War Widows (15 Jan 2018)

Rosie Duffield: As the Minister will know, arbitrary and unjust transitions in pension status can have dire consequences for those who depend on them, and it is particularly shameful when those affected are the families of those who were prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Members of my own family have been affected, so will the Minister please meet me directly to discuss this issue?

NHS Winter Crisis (10 Jan 2018)

Rosie Duffield: Does my hon. Friend agree that desperate patients should never have to resort to smuggling out secretly filmed footage of trolley-lined corridors with people sitting on the floors, such as the footage I have received from my constituents visiting and working at William Harvey Hospital in Ashford?

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Review on inclusive growth and equality (18 Dec 2017)

Rosie Duffield: Absolutely—

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Review on inclusive growth and equality (18 Dec 2017)

Rosie Duffield: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Wirral South (Alison McGovern) for her intervention, but in the light of your comments, Mr Owen, I shall continue with my speech. These parents and children will no longer be able to meet or play together, and the children will be unable to socialise with children their own age in a safe, well-equipped space. Loneliness is a—[Interruption.] This is...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Review on inclusive growth and equality (18 Dec 2017)

Rosie Duffield: Absolutely. We have heard a lot about Marxism and some filibustering speeches, but the real people watching today are interested in cuts to services such as children’s services. That is why I am speaking about them. We know that two thirds of councillors from 101 local authorities that were surveyed said that not enough money was available to provide universal services such as...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Review on inclusive growth and equality (18 Dec 2017)

Rosie Duffield: The Chancellor, in his Budget speech, offered nothing at all for our vital children’s services, which are already struggling and stretched. He was, however, able to find £5 billion of tax relief for bankers, so it is certainly a happy Christmas for them this year. The additional new surcharge on banks and the changes announced to the bank levy mean that the amount received will...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (29 Nov 2017)

Rosie Duffield: As the First Secretary of State will know, being my near neighbour in Kent, as a result of underfunding the Conservative county council has run out of cash and is cutting the funding of buses in Kent by 70%. Four hospital buses, 14 school buses and over 100 other routes are to be cut. Thousands of pensioners, especially in rural areas, are to be trapped at home. Does the right hon. Gentleman,...

International Trade: Economic Partnership Agreements (23 Nov 2017)

Rosie Duffield: Economic partnership agreements have faced intense criticism both from the very countries that they are intended to help and from experts and academics across Europe. Will the Minister consider introducing a sunset clause into the rolled-over EPAs so that new and better agreements can eventually be negotiated?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Special Educational Needs (6 Nov 2017)

Rosie Duffield: What steps she is taking to support children with special educational needs.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Special Educational Needs (6 Nov 2017)

Rosie Duffield: In my area, there is a chronic shortage of special needs school places. In Kent, nearly 7% of students with statements or EHCPs are not educated in the school setting, which is well above the national average. Does the Minister agree that every child in the UK is entitled to a school education, and will he instruct the Department for Education to support local authorities who are struggling...

Tobacco Control Plan: Valproate and Foetal Anticonvulsant Syndrome (19 Oct 2017)

Rosie Duffield: Does the hon. Lady agree that women such as Janet and Emma are ideally placed to get compensation, should the Government agree to a system similar to the €10 million French compensation scheme for Depakine?

Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Rosie Duffield: I am exceptionally worried about the impact of universal credit roll-out on my constituents following today’s debate. The fact that the Government continue to plough on with a failing initiative despite protests from some Conservative Members shows that they are driven more by political pride than considered policy. As we have heard, Citizens Advice says that half the people it has...

Free Childcare — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (12 Oct 2017)

Rosie Duffield: My hon. Friend the Member for Batley and Spen (Tracy Brabin), the shadow Minister with responsibility for early years, has just chaired a panel with childcare providers and I have taken down some of the quotes from that meeting: “The system is complex, long-winded and many parents give up”; “It’s not free, so let’s stop calling it free”; “We are...

Schools: National Funding Formula: General Election Campaign: Abuse and Intimidation (14 Sep 2017)

Rosie Duffield: I thank my hon. Friend for bringing up such an important and relevant topic as the racism and anti-Semitism that are going on. I would like to highlight the unacceptable level of vitriol and aggression directed towards female candidates, in particular, during the election. Does she agree that the Government need to do more to ensure that women are not unjustly dissuaded from campaigning,...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

Rosie Duffield: It is a great privilege to make my maiden speech as part of this special and important debate. Many people—especially me—were completely stunned on the morning of 9 June to wake up and find that a new red dot had appeared on the previously entirely blue political map of Kent. I am still recovering from the shock, but am also determined to bring as much positive difference as I...
