Healthcare in Oxfordshire — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (17 Oct 2017)

Layla Moran: My constituents in Oxford West and Abingdon will be heartened by the hon. Gentleman’s speech so far. The points have been extremely well made and the nail has been hit on the head about the lack of proper engagement. As he probably knows, Abingdon Community Hospital is part of phase 2, and there is a real risk that beds will be removed from the hospital without the meaningful engagement...

Healthcare in Oxfordshire — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (17 Oct 2017)

Layla Moran: The problem in Abingdon is that people are concerned that the physiotherapy unit has been moved away. That point about access is incredibly important, especially in our area, where we frankly cannot get anywhere for the traffic.

Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Layla Moran: As many Members have already pointed out, the Bill should not be needed at all. The most sensible approach to nuclear safeguarding would be for the United Kingdom to remain a member of Euratom, rather than wasting vast amounts of time and money in setting up an alternative regime that the Government admit will be as much a replica of the original as possible. The Government have created a rod...

Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Layla Moran: I absolutely do, because we have not had that absolute cast-iron guarantee. I should add that this is not just about the nuclear scientists; it is also about all the support staff who are needed.

Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Layla Moran: On funding, the haste with which the Bill has been introduced suggests the Minister wishes to move forward quickly with recruiting and training the nuclear specialists who will be absolutely crucial in the case of no deal, and rightly so for the reasons I have just described, but can he confirm how much he anticipates being spent on implementing these measures and exactly when this spending...

Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Layla Moran: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that is not about the EU wanting to give us radioisotopes, but about half-lives? The radioisotopes we are talking about have extremely short half-lives, so any delay at all at the border means fewer patients will be able to benefit from them.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Refugee Family Reunions (16 Oct 2017)

Layla Moran: Whether her Department is taking steps to broaden the criteria under which refugee family reunions are permitted.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Refugee Family Reunions (16 Oct 2017)

Layla Moran: As the Minister will be aware, a lone child refugee is currently unable to sponsor even their parents or siblings to join them in safety here. UNICEF and the Refugee Council have both said that the rules are too restrictive, and the Home Affairs Committee has called the situation “perverse”. Will the Government therefore support the Refugees (Family Reunion) Bill, introduced in...

Higher Education Funding (11 Oct 2017)

Layla Moran: It is true that universities are better funded, but the Campaign for Science and Engineering, as well as universities, tell me that the definition of which subjects receive the top-up payment from the Government are out of date and too narrow. To ensure that we maintain funding, especially in science, technology, engineering and maths subjects, can the Minister confirm that the list will be...

Race Disparity Audit (10 Oct 2017)

Layla Moran: I welcome the focus in the audit on educational attainment and many Members have already spoken about the subject. That shows how stubbornly the gap persists between pupil premium children and others. If the Government are serious about addressing this burning injustice, should they not allocate the money to schools to tackle the problem rather than forcing them to make damaging cuts, which...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Sep 2017)

Layla Moran: If she will list her official engagements for Wednesday 13 September.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Sep 2017)

Layla Moran: I would like to echo the Prime Minister’s words of sympathy for the families, but especially the children, affected by Hurricane Irma. Oxford West and Abingdon has a vibrant local economy, but, reliant on the university, science and car industries, it is set to shrink if we leave the single market and the customs union, risking thousands of local jobs. Is it not time that the Prime...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: School Funding (11 Sep 2017)

Layla Moran: Thank you, Mr Speaker. In Oxford West and Abingdon, many schools are struggling to meet the needs of pupil premium students in particular. The funding formula has historically been especially low in my constituency. What will the Secretary of State do to address this issue?

Free Childcare Entitlement (6 Sep 2017)

Layla Moran: I absolutely welcome the policy. After all, it was a Liberal Democrat policy that we started implementing while in coalition so I would like to see it succeed. However, I invite the Minister to come to Oxford West and Abingdon because I am afraid that the suggestion that the policy is absolutely fine and working on the ground is simply not correct. In my constituency, the places are not...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (6 Sep 2017)

Layla Moran: Parents in my constituency are disappointed. [Laughter.]

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (6 Sep 2017)

Layla Moran: Parents in my constituency are disappointed. Over the summer they sought to take advantage of the 30 hours of free childcare, but due to underfunding they found that it was not available and not free. Will the Prime Minister apologise to parents across the country for false advertising on what otherwise would have been a welcome policy?

Bills Presented: Tuition Fees (19 Jul 2017)

Layla Moran: There are two great universities in my constituency, and they are both telling me that they face huge uncertainty because of Brexit, not least because they do not know their own fee arrangements for EU students. They are worried about not attracting those students. What is the Minister doing about that, if he wants to ensure that they are well funded tor the future?

Points of Order: Drugs Policy (18 Jul 2017)

Layla Moran: One of the joys of being called so late in the debate is being able to hear the arguments on both sides. I have found it genuinely informative, and I thank everyone for their contributions, especially those who made maiden speeches today. As a newbie myself, I can only tell them that it does get easier. We have a very special person in the room with us today—so special, indeed, that she...
