Civil Liability Bill [Lords] (Money): Cycling: Gilligan Report (4 Sep 2018)

Layla Moran: I thank the hon. Lady very much for her intervention, because she touches on the crux of the issue. Everyone says that they want to make this happen, but when it comes to implementation, they need a stronger arm to make sure it does. In Abingdon, there is no masterplan for integrating cycle routes between different developments, despite the fact that new housing could and should provide a new...

Civil Liability Bill [Lords] (Money): Cycling: Gilligan Report (4 Sep 2018)

Layla Moran: I am extremely grateful to have the chance to speak this evening about the importance of cycling and, more specifically, the Gilligan report. Oxford is famous for being a cycling city. In fact, one of the first early-day motions I tabled following my election was to congratulate the city on its newfound cycling city status and ambitions. That said, it is fair to say that I am a fair-weather...

Civil Liability Bill [Lords] (Money): Cycling: Gilligan Report (4 Sep 2018)

Layla Moran: I completely agree with the hon. Gentleman. The report further advocates an Oxfordshire cycling commissioner with powers similar to those Andrew Gilligan held in London. The commissioner’s job would be to hold all aspects of county, district and city councils to account, and the report suggests that local cycling campaign groups should be funded to allow them to examine and challenge...

Civil Liability Bill [Lords] (Money): Cycling: Gilligan Report (4 Sep 2018)

Layla Moran: There are many good examples across the country, but we need many more. Unsurprisingly perhaps, cycling is one of the top issues in my postbag, and top of the list of cycling issues is the need for segregated cycle lanes. Why? Because they are safer. Fiona lives off the Botley Road, and she gives examples of regular accidents on that road. She says that “the road needs to be fit to...

Civil Liability Bill [Lords] (Money): Cycling: Gilligan Report (4 Sep 2018)

Layla Moran: I absolutely agree. In my patch, it is Banbury Road and Woodstock Road, as well as Botley Road and the other arterial roads. More than that, it is about schemes such as the B4044 community path, which would provide a safe cycle route between Botley and Eynsham. The path should have happened a decade ago, and the cost is tiny compared with what we are spending on roads. We need to make sure...

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...

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...

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.”...

Business of the House (5 Jul 2018)

Layla Moran: The welcome Gilligan report on cycling came out this week and included recommendations for major investment in Oxford. May we please have a debate on that important issue?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Oxford to Cambridge Expressway (5 Jul 2018)

Layla Moran: When he plans to make a decision on the preferred route for the Oxford to Cambridge expressway.
