Royal Assent: Independent Complaints and Grievance Policy (19 Jul 2018)

Layla Moran: I apologise for not rising to my feet quicker, but I was looking at Standing Order No. 150. I should have started by saying what an honour and a privilege it has been to sit on the steering committee, albeit for an incredibly short amount of time, as I stood in for my hon. Friend the Member for East Dunbartonshire (Jo Swinson). I am sure many will agree that not just in this process, but in...

Royal Assent: Independent Complaints and Grievance Policy (19 Jul 2018)

Layla Moran: My question is simple. Under the plans proposed by the Leader of the House, is there any chance at all that an MP who is under investigation for sexual misconduct would be named?

Relationships and Sex Education (19 Jul 2018)

Layla Moran: I, too, welcome the consultation. It is overdue, but I sincerely hope that the Government will press forward with it. I want to press the Secretary of State one more time on financial education. He may well have seen the harrowing BBC drama this week “Killed By My Debt”, the true story of 19-year-old of Jerome Rogers, who took his own life because of financial debt. The Secretary...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe (17 Jul 2018)

Written Answers — Home Office: Immigration Controls (17 Jul 2018)

Layla Moran: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what the total number of ePassport border gates was at each set of UK passport controls, including airports and juxtaposed controls at Brussels and Calais in each of the last five years for which figures are available; how many hours each ePassport border gate was (a) operational and (b) not operational; which ePassport border gates were...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Social Security Benefits: Motor Neurone Disease (16 Jul 2018)

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Layla Moran: I find myself in an odd position. I was elected last year. I overcame a Tory majority of more than 9,500 votes, and yet in the debate since my election people seem to have completely forgotten that that election ever happened. We speak frequently about the will of the people in the referendum. That is true, but there was then a further asking of the people what they wanted. The Tory version...

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Layla Moran: It was 43% but it was not enough to deliver sufficient numbers of Members of Parliament. In my constituency, I was elected on an extremely clear mandate to stop a hard Brexit. The Green party stood down, and swathes of Labour voters came over to me. In fact, many remainer Conservatives—this is what my in-box is stuffed with—are saying that they will never vote Tory again because...

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Layla Moran: Indeed. That is why it is so striking that people do not now want to ask them what they think of this new settlement. The point of this debate is to ask the people and to trust the people. The people of Oxford West and Abingdon put me here to make the case on how Brexit is going to affect them and their families.

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Layla Moran: Real people’s voices have been missing from this debate, so I am going to introduce some after taking this intervention.

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Layla Moran: I personally feel that there is no deal better than the deal we already have. That is what we had in our manifesto and that is our clear mandate. As I said, I achieved an enormous swing, so I can only assume that my constituents understood that. The Conservatives were proposing a possible World Trade Organisation-style Brexit—much harder, I dare say, than what Labour is suggesting now....

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Layla Moran: rose—

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Layla Moran: Will the hon. Gentleman explain how the first referendum held after all the facts have been presented to us would count as a rerun, given that there would be new facts? In my constituency, for example, BMW has now come out and said that businesses would be harmed, and that would mean that my constituents would lose their jobs. Why should they not have the right to change their minds?

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Layla Moran: I sit on the Public Accounts Committee, and last February we went to Washington, where we had private briefings with State Department representatives about the trade deal. They were very clear that we must be absolutely clear about, for example, country of origin rules and that they do not want a part of a small trade deal—they will not “do skinny”, in their words. If that...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: USA: State Visits (10 Jul 2018)

Layla Moran: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, if he will ask the US Government to cover the cost to Thames Valley Police of policing any visit to Oxfordshire by the US President during his upcoming visit to the UK.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Probation Service: Recruitment and Retention in Oxfordshire (10 Jul 2018)

Layla Moran: What recent assessment his Department has made of trends in recruitment and retention rates for the probation service in Oxfordshire.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Probation Service: Recruitment and Retention in Oxfordshire (10 Jul 2018)

Layla Moran: I thank the Minister for his well-prepared answer, but the fact is that the probation service in Oxfordshire is at breaking point. That is also to do with sky-rocketing workloads, the high cost of living and paltry pay rises since 2009. One officer told me that they are being forced to cut corners and feel they “can no longer actively reduce reoffending or keep the public safe.”...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Grammar Schools (6 Jul 2018)

Layla Moran: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what steps he is taking to prevent selective schools and sixth form colleges (a) suspending pupils and (b) encouraging pupils to leave due to poor grades.
