Financial Guidance and Claims Bill [Lords]: Unsolicited direct marketing: other consumer financial products etc (24 Apr 2018)

Ellie Reeves: I want to speak to amendments 8 and 9, which, unlike new clause 4, would lead to an outright ban on cold calling by claims management companies. Claims management companies make and send around 51 million personal injury-related calls and texts each year. Such calls are not only a nuisance; they exploit vulnerable people. It is worth reiterating that solicitors are already banned from cold...

Financial Guidance and Claims Bill [Lords]: Unsolicited direct marketing: other consumer financial products etc (24 Apr 2018)

Ellie Reeves: I absolutely agree. Surely a better solution to this issue is to have an outright ban on cold calling in personal injury claims by claims management companies, which is exactly what amendments 8 and 9 would do. New clause 4 gives the single financial guidance body the ability to advise the Government if it considers a ban on cold calling by CMCs to be necessary. If the Government receive such...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Voter ID Pilots (23 Apr 2018)

Ellie Reeves: Bromley, the borough in which I live and which I represent, is taking part in the voter ID pilot in May, and its own equality impact assessment has drawn particular attention to the impact on voters with protected characteristics, mainly older people and trans people. I listened to the hon. Member for Bromley and Chislehurst (Robert Neill) and I have to say that we get a very different...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Apr 2018)

Ellie Reeves: This has been an unprecedented year for violent crime in London. Less than four months into 2018, we have already seen almost 60 murders. The Metropolitan police do a fantastic job, but Home Office documents show that there is a correlation between the reduction in police resources and the rise in violent crime. Even after the precept increase, the Met will still need to make savings of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (17 Apr 2018)

Ellie Reeves: The housing crisis has gone on for far too long under this Government. Lewisham’s Labour council is about to build its 500th new council home since 2015, but many people still come to my surgeries because they reside in temporary accommodation. Will the Chancellor now commit to reversing the 63% cut in funding to the council’s budget so that Lewisham can get on with building more...

Worboys Case and the Parole Board (28 Mar 2018)

Ellie Reeves: I welcome the Court’s decision and hope that rule 25 will be abolished without delay. One way to make Parole Board decisions more transparent is greater involvement of victims—for example, by consulting them about licence conditions, using video links for them to give evidence, advising them about the impact of their victim statement on board decisions, and a simple right of...

NHS Staff Pay (21 Mar 2018)

Ellie Reeves: The NHS is now short of 100,000 staff because of the Government’s neglect of the NHS workforce. When the Government scrapped the nursing bursary, they said that that would lead to the training of more nurses, but UCAS data shows that since then the number of applications has fallen by 15,000. Will the Government now commit themselves to reintroducing the bursary?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (21 Mar 2018)

Ellie Reeves: Mental health issues affect one in 10 children, who on average have to see their GP three times before a referral, with many waiting up to 18 months for treatment. I acknowledge the Green Paper on this issue, but at a time when national funding in this area is being constantly cut, including a 5% reduction in funding to Lewisham child and adolescent mental health services, is this not another...

Forensic Science Regulator Bill: Dulwich Hamlet Football Club (16 Mar 2018)

Ellie Reeves: I thank my hon. Friend for securing this debate. Many of my constituents have contacted me about Dulwich Hamlet and they have all spoken about their love and affinity for the club. As my hon. Friend says, football clubs are often the lynchpin of communities, but they are increasingly threatened by buy-outs, as we have seen in Dulwich. Does she agree that the Government should look into...

Refugees (Family Reunion) (No.2) Bill (16 Mar 2018)

Ellie Reeves: I know of the great work that the Lewisham Refugee and Migrant Network has done in our borough. Will my hon. Friend join me in recognising the work of Action for Refugees in Lewisham, which I am sure will be assisted by the provisions of the Bill in helping some of the most vulnerable to be resettled in south London?

Labour Reforms: Qatar (14 Mar 2018)

Ellie Reeves: I visited Qatar on a delegation in 2014, and I was appalled by the workers’ poor living and working conditions. My hon. Friend is helpfully setting out some of the concerns. My understanding is that some things have improved since 2014, but there is still the routine non-payment of wages, and agencies in the sending country give false expectations about salaries and charge exorbitant...

Written Answers — Attorney General: Personal Injury: Fraud (13 Mar 2018)

Ellie Reeves: To ask the Attorney General, how many proven fraudulent personal injury claims were made by (a) horse-riders, (b) pedestrians, (c) cyclists and (d) other vulnerable road users in the last 12 months.

Written Answers — Attorney General: Personal Injury: Fraud (13 Mar 2018)

Ellie Reeves: To ask the Attorney General, how many successful prosecutions there have been for personal injury insurance fraud in the UK court system in the last 12 months.

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Legal Representation (12 Mar 2018)

Ellie Reeves: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, how many litigants in person have been through the courts in family and housing cases in each of the last five years.

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Legal Representation (12 Mar 2018)

Ellie Reeves: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what assessment he has made of the effect on delays to court proceedings of the increase in the number of litigants in person during the last five years.

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Legal Representation (12 Mar 2018)

Ellie Reeves: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what estimate his Department has made of the costs to the public purse arising from changes in the number of litigants in person in the last two years.

Bills Presented: Vote 100 and International Women’s Day (8 Mar 2018)

Ellie Reeves: I feel immensely privileged to speak in this debate to mark International Women’s Day, 100 years after some women first got the vote. I represent the borough of Lewisham, where, I am proud to say, 100 years after women got the right to be Members of Parliament, we have three female MPs. I am delighted to serve alongside my hon. Friends the Members for Lewisham, Deptford (Vicky...

Mental Health Services: Children and Young People (8 Mar 2018)

Ellie Reeves: The Care Quality Commission’s review found that children were waiting up to 18 months to receive treatment for their mental health conditions. In Lewisham, the Government are cutting the budget for child and adolescent mental health services by 5%. The Green Paper will not help children currently waiting. What will the Government do to address this?
