Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (14 Dec 2017)

Danielle Rowley: Last night the Government suffered an embarrassing defeat, but not one Scottish Conservative passed through the Aye Lobby and voted for the amendment. What representations did the Secretary of State have from the Scottish Conservatives on the amendment and votes this week?

Male Suicide — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (13 Dec 2017)

Danielle Rowley: As my hon. Friend the Member for Rutherglen and Hamilton West (Ged Killen) said, the majority of people who have committed suicide never reached professional help or went to a health professional. Does the Minister agree that preventive training needs to be rolled out to people such as landlords, firemen and taxi drivers with whom people with suicidal feelings might have contact, even if...

Universal Credit Project Assessment Reviews (5 Dec 2017)

Danielle Rowley: Universal credit has been rolled out in my constituency for some time, and my office has seen its effect. Universal credit is pushing people into poverty and making life harder. Across the House, we must agree to do everything that can be done and to release any information that can help us better understand the situation and fix it. I have local examples of how universal credit is affecting...

Universal Credit Project Assessment Reviews (5 Dec 2017)

Danielle Rowley: I absolutely agree with my hon. Friend on that. There are many reasons why this information must be released. Another issue I wish to raise is the fully digital aspect of the system. Many constituents have come to me because they are vulnerable, elderly or disabled and they are simply not able to use the digital aspect. They have not been able to get out of their house to get to a...

Public Sector Pay — [David Hanson in the Chair] (4 Dec 2017)

Danielle Rowley: With more and more children falling into poverty, many of them in working households, does my hon. Friend agree that the Government need to think now and address work inequality and income inequality, and that scrapping the public sector pay cap would be a great place to start?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Universal Credit: Household Income (28 Nov 2017)

Danielle Rowley: I am not surprised that the Government announced small changes to their discredited universal credit programme in the Budget last week, following months of criticism, unanimous defeat on an Opposition day motion, discontent across the whole House, rising debt arrears and even evictions. But what is surprising is that, rather than halt the botched roll-out and fix the failing system, the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Universal Credit: Household Income (28 Nov 2017)

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (28 Nov 2017)

Danielle Rowley: Members will have heard last week about the Government’s failure on productivity and growth, and about the OBR’s downward revision of its forecast for the economy over the current Parliament. Can the Chancellor tell us how much worse off someone on the national living wage will be in 2020, compared with the forecast in March, as a result of the Government’s failure on wages?

State Pension Age (21 Nov 2017)

Danielle Rowley: I have many constituents who have come to me for help, and many of them are WASPI women. They are nearing pension age but many of them have had to leave work early because of physically, mentally and emotionally demanding jobs, and they are really struggling. Many of them are also facing the difficulty of the fully digital universal credit system. Does my hon. Friend agree that the Government...

Referendum on Scottish Independence — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (13 Nov 2017)

Danielle Rowley: On process, does the hon. Gentleman agree with me? My constituents have written to me, saying that they do not want another referendum. Many of them were remain voters in the Brexit referendum, and for them the only thing worse than the chaos that we have at the moment from the UK Government would be the further chaos of another referendum and uncertainty.

Representation of the People (Young People’S Enfranchisement and Education) Bill (3 Nov 2017)

Danielle Rowley: I am honoured to speak in this debate, because when I came here after I was elected in June, it was not my first time in this place. I was here in 2009 during the UK Youth Parliament debate, in which we argued for votes at 16. As a 27-year-old, I have not changed my mind on that issue. I was recently at Lasswade High School in my constituency, and I asked young people there if they agreed...

Representation of the People (Young People’S Enfranchisement and Education) Bill (3 Nov 2017)

Danielle Rowley: No, I will not give way. What I want to do is to bring to the House the message from my young constituents. It is not that young people are too unintelligent to vote or do not know enough about politics, as has been insinuated.

Representation of the People (Young People’S Enfranchisement and Education) Bill (3 Nov 2017)

Danielle Rowley: On the accusation that young people are not ready, are not clever enough or do not have political knowledge, I ask Members whether everyone they know has such political knowledge.

Representation of the People (Young People’S Enfranchisement and Education) Bill (3 Nov 2017)

Danielle Rowley: No. On behalf of my constituents and of 16 and 17-year-olds watching across the country, I urge Members to vote for this important Bill.
