Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Universal Credit: Child Poverty (5 Feb 2018)

Karen Lee: If she will make an estimate of the number of children who will no longer be living in poverty as a result of the roll-out of universal credit.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Universal Credit: Child Poverty (5 Feb 2018)

Karen Lee: Figures published last month show that 27% of children in my constituency live in low-income households—and these are families who rely on universal credit. Does the Minister believe that it is acceptable that families living in poverty in Lincoln have to rely on food banks, particularly when due to problems with the roll-out of universal credit?

Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration etc.) Bill (2 Feb 2018)

Karen Lee: I congratulate the hon. Member for East Worthing and Shoreham (Tim Loughton) on introducing such an important Bill. I am proud that the landmark policy of civil partnerships was introduced by Labour. We took a stand long before it was considered fashionable or acceptable. We took a stand to allow lesbian, gay and bisexual people to have their relationships recognised by law and to have...

Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration etc.) Bill (2 Feb 2018)

Karen Lee: I am going to make some progress. On the investigation of stillbirths, I point out that in the UK we still have a woefully high number of stillbirths for a western country. I know that as I used to work in a gynaecology out-patient clinic and I remember this happening. A stillbirth can be truly traumatic for mothers, and we need to do more to support women that go through this and more to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (31 Jan 2018)

Karen Lee: Lincoln’s walk-in centre will close in a few weeks, despite there being inconsistent and insufficient service provision in place to mitigate the closure. Will the Minister pass on to the Prime Minister my request for her to meet me both to discuss and review that closure?

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Local Government Finance (22 Jan 2018)

Karen Lee: What assessment he has made of the effect of the local government finance settlement on the ability of local authorities to meet their statutory responsibilities.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Local Government Finance (22 Jan 2018)

Karen Lee: How does the Minister intend to ensure that, under the fairer funding review, individual local authorities receive an adequate level of funding, which is not only fair, but sustainable, given that the Government’s intention to reset the business rates baseline from 2020-21 may result in all the individual growth that has been built up since the start of the business retention scheme...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (22 Jan 2018)

Karen Lee: City of Lincoln Council is aiming to build 500 homes in the next five years to help to tackle its waiting list of more than 1,000 house- holds. If the Government will not consider raising the borrowing cap on local housing revenue accounts, how do they plan to tackle the shortage of truly affordable rented housing?

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Tax Havens: Developing Countries (17 Jan 2018)

Karen Lee: What steps her Department is taking to mitigate the effect of tax havens on the tax receipts of developing countries.

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Tax Havens: Developing Countries (17 Jan 2018)

Karen Lee: Lesotho has severely underfunded public services, in part due to high rates of HIV and AIDS, yet our Government have just concluded a tax treaty with Lesotho that severely constrains its ability to levy taxes. Does the Secretary of State believe that that is consistent with promoting international development?

Women and Equalities: Topical Questions (11 Jan 2018)

Karen Lee: I welcome the Minister to her new role. The BBC claims that 14.5% of its staff are from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds. But others, including Lenny Henry, have claimed that if we look at the staff who actually make the BBC’s programmes, that figure falls to just 1.5%. Is the Minister concerned that there is a major problem with BAME representation at the BBC, and what...

NHS Winter Crisis: Rail Franchising (10 Jan 2018)

Karen Lee: Travelling by rail has always been something I enjoyed. My dad was a railwayman, and when I was nine, my family travelled to Italy by train, which was pretty exotic in the 1960s. Since being elected as the MP for Lincoln, I have had to use trains twice weekly, and it is often not a positive experience. I have to change trains at Newark North Gate, and I sometimes walk right across Newark to...

NHS Winter Crisis (10 Jan 2018)

Karen Lee: rose—

NHS Winter Crisis (10 Jan 2018)

Karen Lee: This time last week, I went out with an East Midlands Ambulance Service crew for a shift, and they told me that over the Christmas period they were waiting two hours and more outside A&E at Lincoln Hospital. They also said that they were not even just sitting in the ambulance—one of them, a paramedic, was going inside and cannulating patients, working in resuscitation, and clerking...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Universal Credit: Food Bank Usage (18 Dec 2017)

Karen Lee: If he will make an assessment of the effect of the length of waiting time to receive universal credit on levels of food bank usage.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Universal Credit: Food Bank Usage (18 Dec 2017)

Karen Lee: Given the waiting period for universal credit, people face a choice: they can have no money to buy food, so either use a food bank or starve, or they can get a loan, as the Secretary of State says. Does he agree that pushing people who are already on a low income because they are on a benefit into debt in this way is totally unacceptable?

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (23 Nov 2017)

Karen Lee: This Budget offered the majority of my constituents very little hope, and hope is what is missing in our society. I am not talking it down; the grim truth is that our economy has flatlined. The cut in stamp duty is of no use to my constituents on low wages who cannot afford a mortgage, and the OBR says that without an increase in supply, the stamp duty cut will drive prices up. The public...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (23 Nov 2017)

Karen Lee: No, I will not; I am going to make some progress. This Budget has done nothing to challenge or address the unfairness in our society, and people will feel poorer for longer. It is most definitely not a Budget for the many, and those who benefit are, without doubt, the very few. As a newcomer to the Opposition, I think that Government Members ought to hang their heads in shame, and they ought...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (23 Nov 2017)

Karen Lee: I am a nurse and I still do bank shifts at Lincoln County Hospital, and I am sorry but I really do not recognise what the Secretary of State is describing. Hospitals have got leaking roofs, with buckets to catch the water coming in, and nurses leave shifts at least an hour late, while our pay has been capped and we have lost 14% since 2010. I am sorry, but I do not recognise the NHS he is...

International Trade: Topical Questions (23 Nov 2017)

Karen Lee: A freedom of information request revealed that the Minister acted as a lobbyist for oil and gas companies in Brazil on taxation and environmental licensing issues. Does he think that is consistent with the Government’s commitment to lead the world in environmental protection, and that it conforms with the ministerial code of conduct?
