Pension Equality for Women (14 Dec 2017)

Luke Pollard: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Easington (Grahame Morris) not only for securing the debate, but for joining me on my Facebook Live last night to take questions from WASPI women in Plymouth. First, I would like to declare an interest: I am the son of a WASPI woman and am very proud to be so. There are so many WASPI women born in the 1950s who, instead of being treated with dignity in...

Pension Equality for Women (14 Dec 2017)

Luke Pollard: I will not. I apologise, but I do not have much time. The WASPI women have been betrayed. They have been robbed of their dignity and were insulted when they needed help from the Government. I believe the Minister to be a good man who has taken a lot of stick on this matter, so he is in the perfect position to give the WASPI women hope, although his comments on apprenticeships have not built...

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Luke Pollard: Devon.

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Luke Pollard: It is a privilege to follow the hon. Member for Totnes (Dr Wollaston), and I congratulate my constituency neighbour, the hon. Member for South East Cornwall (Mrs Murray), on securing the debate. At the beginning of every fisheries debate, it is right that we praise the amazing charities that provide rescue and support for the fishing industry, such as the RNLI, the coastguard and the...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Rape: Sentencing (5 Dec 2017)

Luke Pollard: Whether there are plans to review sentencing guidelines for rape committed by people under 18.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (5 Dec 2017)

Luke Pollard: I have been approached by a constituent whose vulnerable daughter was raped by a male under the age of 18 who was not given a custodial sentence. I am concerned that the lenient sentence sets a precedent for lesser sentences and does not give sufficient regard to the suffering of the victim. Will the Minister agree to meet me and the family of this rape victim to discuss the sentencing...

Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill (1 Dec 2017)

Luke Pollard: Notwithstanding what the right hon. Gentleman has just said, does he acknowledge that the boundary commission is still proposing a “Devonwall” seat, which ignores the strong identities of Devon and Cornwall and matches them together, and which would be truly unpopular?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Passenger Trends (30 Nov 2017)

Luke Pollard: More passengers are using the great western main line than ever before, but we need more investment in that line to ensure that journeys are fast and resilient. If our journeys are to continue to be slow, however, will the Minister commit himself to extending the GSM-R mobile phone trial that is taking place in Scotland and the north of England to Devon and Cornwall?

Rail Update (29 Nov 2017)

Luke Pollard: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker. Fragmentation of the great western franchise risks locking in a poor deal for rail for the far south-west, so will the Secretary of State take this opportunity to match the commitment given by the shadow Secretary of State for Transport to fund the peninsula rail taskforce recommendations for faster journeys and a more resilient railway, and to ensure that we...

Backbench Business: Dr Elsie Inglis and Women’s Contribution to World War One — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (28 Nov 2017)

Luke Pollard: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Edinburgh South (Ian Murray) on securing this debate. It is timely given the important anniversaries of women’s role in our history that we are celebrating and commemorating. The contributions made by women during the first world war have long been overlooked. As we commemorate the centenary of those events, it is important that the topic...

Backbench Business: Dr Elsie Inglis and Women’s Contribution to World War One — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (28 Nov 2017)

Luke Pollard: There are many untold stories of women’s contributions to the war effort that need to be told across the country, including in Scotland. A further way in which women contributed to the war effort came with the establishment of the women’s police service, which was set up by Margaret Damer Dawson in 1914. Damer Dawson had worked towards establishing a female presence in the police...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: National Security Capability Review (27 Nov 2017)

Luke Pollard: I welcome the confirmation —a long-known position in Devonport—that the towed array Type 23 frigates will now be based in Devonport, but it is abundantly clear that a cross-party majority of this House is opposed to the Government’s plans to scrap HMS Albion, HMS Bulwark and our Royal Marines. Will the new Secretary of State now abandon those plans and confirm that we will...
