Domestic Abuse Bill: Clause 2 - Definition of “personally connected” (15 Apr 2021)

Sara Britcliffe: This is a very important Bill. In April last year, I made my maiden speech during the Bill’s Second Reading debate and talked about my passion for supporting those who need it the most. Many Members from different parties have explained how far the Bill has come over the years, and it is important that changes have been made. I am proud to support the Bill as it will protect and give new...

His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh (12 Apr 2021)

Sara Britcliffe: As I listened to this debate’s opening tributes, the contribution by Mr Speaker described His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh very aptly. It was a description that many people across the United Kingdom would recognise and agree with: the father of the nation. Since his sad passing on Friday, I have watched tributes pour in from every corner of this country and beyond. Kings, Prime...

Online Anonymity and Anonymous Abuse (24 Mar 2021)

Sara Britcliffe: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Stroud (Siobhan Baillie) for securing this important debate. For me, online abuse increased when I became the Member of Parliament for Hyndburn, and it has included death threats, threats against my friends, my family, and a constant barrage of abuse. I cannot pretend that those words have not sometimes affected me and given me sleepless nights,...

Independent Review of Administrative Law (18 Mar 2021)

Sara Britcliffe: Will the Lord Chancellor set out for the benefit of the House the advantages of these measures?

Scotland: General Election and Constitutional Future (17 Mar 2021)

Sara Britcliffe: I would say it is an honour to follow the hon. Member for Ilford North (Wes Streeting), but certain tweaks needed to be made to his speech for me to be able to say that. Sitting here listening to this debate, it has struck me how depressingly similar much of what I am hearing it from the SNP truly is. A referendum was held to decide an incredibly important issue that affects the future of...

Scotland: General Election and Constitutional Future (17 Mar 2021)

Sara Britcliffe: My hon. Friend mentions talking down Scotland. Does he agree that he is one of the most vocal voices in this Parliament for the people of Scotland and their wants and needs?

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: [1st Allocated Day] (15 Mar 2021)

Sara Britcliffe: Can I first say, on using women as a reason to vote against the Bill, that I spoke about my own personal experiences last week? I remind those on the Opposition Benches that women and men are equal in law, so it all applies to women. I want to raise the concerns of my constituents about the fundamental right to peaceful protest. It is important to make one thing clear: the Bill includes...

International Women’s Day (11 Mar 2021)

Sara Britcliffe: I am pleased to contribute to this debate as the first female MP for Hyndburn and Haslingden. International Women’s Day is hugely important in recognising women around the world. It is a time to reflect on the work that they do and a day to celebrate all that we have achieved. But women have significant battles to face whenever they try to succeed, progress or do something to make a...

International Women’s Day (11 Mar 2021)

Sara Britcliffe: I thank my hon. Friend. I absolutely agree. On a day when we celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women, I wanted to share my own story and highlight that, even in 2021, the experience of men and women can still be very different. Even by highlighting this problem and making this speech today, I am encouraging the trolls, the incels and the other people who...

Business of the House (11 Mar 2021)

Sara Britcliffe: I refer Members to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. It saddens me to say that Labour-run Hyndburn Borough Council announced that it will be closing the baths at Mercer Hall in Great Harwood. We saw the same happen with Labour-run Rossendale Borough Council and Haslingden baths. All Labour councillors also voted against a fully costed amendment by the Conservative...

Income Tax (Charge) (9 Mar 2021)

Sara Britcliffe: I draw the House’s attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. In the most difficult economic circumstances we have faced for generations, the Chancellor has struck a careful balance between the difficult and necessary measures to recover our public finances from covid-19 and the need to protect the most vulnerable and the lowest-paid in society. From the...

NHS Staff Pay (8 Mar 2021)

Sara Britcliffe: I had several bits of correspondence about NHS pay over the weekend. Can my hon. Friend confirm whether any decision has been made specifically about nurses’ pay and what the total allocation for NHS pay rises is in the Budget? Will she ensure that those on lower pay bands are prioritised in any pay awards?

Prime Minister: Engagements (3 Mar 2021)

Sara Britcliffe: May I first say how great it was to welcome my right hon. Friend to Accrington last week? I am sure that he will join me in thanking the staff and pupils at Accrington Academy for making our visit such a welcoming one. As you will know, Mr Speaker, my constituency was at the heart of the first industrial revolution, and we are ready to lead in the new green industrial revolution and level up...

UK Border: Covid Protections (26 Jan 2021)

Sara Britcliffe: Many residents in Hyndburn and Haslingden have raised concerns about people entering our country and not following the isolation guidance when they arrive. Will the Home Secretary please reassure my residents that more stringent measures will be in place, if necessary, to control the virus?

Public Bill Committee: Telecommunications (Security) Bill: Clause 14 - Reviews of sections 1 to 13 (26 Jan 2021)

Sara Britcliffe: Does not the clause state that the period is up to five years? The review could be done during that period; it would not have to be at the five-year mark every time.

Council Tax: Government’s Proposed Increase (25 Jan 2021)

Sara Britcliffe: Does my hon. Friend agree that it is welcome that today Hyndburn Borough Council received an extra £492,000 to help with the community response? Does he also agree that it is important that our residents get the bang for their buck and that the basics get done, such as streets being cleaned, bins emptied and empty buildings on our high streets restored to their former glory?

Skills for Jobs White Paper (21 Jan 2021)

Sara Britcliffe: A transformed further education system has the potential to unlock opportunity for so many young people, both in Hyndburn and Haslingden and across the country, by equipping them with the skills and training that they need to secure the jobs they want for the future. Does my right hon. Friend agree that, as we look towards our economic recovery, investing in further education has never been...
