Speaker’S Statement: Kayden Dunn (17 Dec 2018)

Rachel Maclean: I very much welcome the debate and the fact that causing death by dangerous driving will attract a life sentence. Will the Minister say more about what will happen in cases where the result is not death but serious injury? What sentence will that attract?

Uk-EU Negotiations: Digital Economy (17 Dec 2018)

Rachel Maclean: Will the Minister give way?

Uk-EU Negotiations: Digital Economy (17 Dec 2018)

Rachel Maclean: My hon. Friend is making an excellent speech dealing with this critical issue that any of us who are responsible for young people will feel very strongly about. Does she agree that there is a rapid evolution in the technology sector? She talked specifically about pornographic sites that charge for access. Will she say a bit more about how she would deal with those sites that offer slightly...

Uk-EU Negotiations: Digital Economy (17 Dec 2018)

Rachel Maclean: Does the Minister believe that the BBFC has sufficient resources and skills to do what the regulations require of it?

European Council (17 Dec 2018)

Rachel Maclean: Does the Prime Minister realise that when Jean-Claude Juncker called her “nebulous” he fundamentally underestimated the attitude of the British people, who completely disagree with that sentiment? That is what I found in my constituency this weekend, where people praised the Prime Minister’s determination to get a deal that works for my constituency. Can she display that similar...

Cat Welfare: NHS: Staffing Levels (11 Dec 2018)

Rachel Maclean: I believe I was noting the positive progress in Worcestershire. The total number of staff employed rose by 7% to more than 5,000 between August 2013 and August this year, and the number of doctors has increased by 5% . The number of nurses has gone up by nearly 8%. There are now nearly 1,400 nurses working in Worcestershire acute hospitals. I have been to the wards, and spoken to the nurses...

Cat Welfare: NHS: Staffing Levels (11 Dec 2018)

Rachel Maclean: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone, and I congratulate the hon. Member for Batley and Spen (Tracy Brabin) on having secured this important debate. I have a little bit of a family connection to the NHS, as I am the daughter of a GP, but it is an honour to follow colleagues of all parties who have direct experience of working in the NHS. I welcome their having...

Exiting the European Union: Meaningful Vote (11 Dec 2018)

Rachel Maclean: Does the Leader of the Opposition not accept that it is rather strange for the Opposition to criticise the Prime Minister for not seeking clarity on the backstop but then, when she does go to Brussels to do just that, criticise her for that very action?

EU Exit: Article 50 (10 Dec 2018)

Rachel Maclean: Does the Secretary of State agree that it seems from the contributions of Opposition Members that it may now be their position to seek to revoke article 50? Will he confirm that it remains the Government’s policy—and that I can go back and tell my constituents in Redditch categorically—that we will not seek to revoke article 50?

Exiting the European Union (10 Dec 2018)

Rachel Maclean: I would like to speak up for something that seems to be going out of fashion—that is, compromise and pragmatism to bring the country back together. Does the Prime Minister agree that Opposition Members need to respect the manifesto that they stood on, which was to deliver the result of the referendum, stop playing party politics with their own constituents and back the deal, because they...

Exiting the European Union (10 Dec 2018)

Rachel Maclean: Thank you, Mr Speaker. I merely asked the Prime Minister whether she agrees that the Opposition need to support her deal to deliver what they promised to their constituents.

Business of the House (6 Dec 2018)

Rachel Maclean: In Redditch, I am supporting an excellent charity called Charlotte & Craig Saving Hearts Foundation in its campaign to get first aid on to every school curriculum. May we have a debate in Government time about how we create a nation of lifesavers and get cardio-pulmonary resuscitation —CPR—in every school curriculum?

Exiting the European Union: US Trade (6 Dec 2018)

Rachel Maclean: There has been much talk about the backstop. In the unlikely and frankly unwelcome event that we find ourselves in it, will the Minister please confirm our position with respect to being able to sign trade deals with the United States and other countries?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (5 Dec 2018)

Rachel Maclean: I know how much the Prime Minister likes to get out on to the doorsteps of her constituency whenever she is able to, as I like to in mine. Does she, like me, find that people are raising the issue of potholes on a regular basis, and does she, like me, welcome the fact that we are spending £6.7 million—[Interruption.]

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (5 Dec 2018)

Rachel Maclean: Thank you, Mr Speaker. The roads in Redditch are excellent on the whole, but we are pleased that Worcestershire was awarded £6.7 million of funding in the recent Budget. How quickly does the Prime Minister think that that money will be spent on fixing our roads?

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: 1st Allotted Day (4 Dec 2018)

Rachel Maclean: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Brighton, Pavilion (Caroline Lucas). I do not agree with her views, and I hope I will be able to explain why. We have to start with the political reality of the House of Commons today. It is abundantly clear that there is no majority in this House for a no-deal Brexit. As someone who supports Brexit and wants to see it happen, I believe the...

Leaving the EU (26 Nov 2018)

Rachel Maclean: I would like to put on the record my support for the Prime Minister, not because the deal is perfect—it involves compromises—but because it is a matter of judgment. When I go around my constituency, people tell me they do not want to leave without a deal. There is no precedent for leaving the EU. This is a completely bespoke process. Does she agree that she has succeeded in defying many...

Parking (Code of Practice) Bill: Levy for recovery of administrative and investigation costs (23 Nov 2018)

Rachel Maclean: Thank you for calling me, Madam Deputy Speaker. I apologise for that slight note of surprise. It is a real pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Denton and Reddish (Andrew Gwynne). He is absolutely right: this is a fantastic opportunity for us all to agree on something. I am sometimes confused with the hon. Gentleman because our constituencies sound rather the same. We are, of course, on...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Topical Questions (21 Nov 2018)

Rachel Maclean: Earlier this month, I visited Kenya as part of the armed forces parliamentary scheme and heard from the defence support there about the work it is doing to tackle al-Shabaab. How is the Department working with the Ministry of Defence to promote peace and prosperity?

Finance (No. 3) Bill: Offshore Receipts in Respect of Intangible Property (20 Nov 2018)

Rachel Maclean: My hon. Friend has considerable expertise in this area and I welcome him updating the House. He mentioned some unintended and wholly undesirable consequences of this type of intangible property. Will he enlighten us on whether there are also some beneficial aspects of intangible property, given that the UK is a centre for tech creativity and dynamism and that these are the industries of the...
