Making Britain the Best Place to Grow Up and Grow Old (16 May 2022)

Paulette Hamilton: Today I stand, Madam Deputy Speaker, to thank you for giving me the opportunity to make my maiden speech. It is an honour to follow the hon. Member for Thurrock (Jackie Doyle-Price). I can only say how proud I am today to be a Brummie. I am overwhelmed but privileged to be standing here today in this great institution. Being elected to Parliament is not a right; it is an honour, and it is an...

Foreign National Offender Removal Flights (18 May 2022)

Paulette Hamilton: It is believed that young adults who are being deported arrived in the UK as minors. The Home Office and the courts say that there is no such thing as a homegrown criminal, but at present no weight is being placed on rehabilitation. I am about rehabilitation. Does the Minister believe that weight should be placed on rehabilitation, especially for young people who came into this country as...

But on a serious note,...

Fly-tipping and Illegal Dumping — [SIR MARK HENDRICK in the Chair] (24 May 2022)

Paulette Hamilton: I absolutely agree that that needs to happen. Reports of fly-tipping are increasing across the country. In Birmingham alone, the council received 38,142 reports of fly-tipping between May 2021 and May 2022. Fly-tipping is against the Brummie spirit. Our Labour council has been right to take a zero-tolerance approach, introducing a £400 fixed penalty notice for everyone caught dumping rubbish...

Fly-tipping and Illegal Dumping — [SIR MARK HENDRICK in the Chair] (24 May 2022)

Business of the House (26 May 2022)

Paulette Hamilton: I am campaigning to oppose the latest planning application for a betting shop on Erdington High Street. We already have seven bookies on the High Street and the last thing we need is yet another one. Last year, a multi-million pound bid to transform Erdington High Street was turned down by the Government. We will be submitting another application soon and I hope that Ministers will not let us...

Draft Mental Health Bill (27 Jun 2022)

Paulette Hamilton: Through my role as a lay manager for Birmingham and Solihull mental health trust, I know that a major problem in the west midlands is the availability of beds for individuals detained by the police under section 136 of the Mental Health Act 1983. This is having a huge impact on A&E services in our area, because that is where the police take patients if there are no mental health beds...

NDAs: Universities: Windrush Review — [Esther McVey in the Chair] (29 Jun 2022)

Paulette Hamilton: I absolutely agree with my right hon. Friend. As my background is in health, I will also say that I would not have gone into nursing if it was not for my parents, and for other people from Caribbean heritage, who were so proud to be British. They are not immigrants or migrants; they came here on a British passport—they were British. The exhibition is a collaboration between the Mykal...

Ambulance Pressures (18 Jul 2022)

Paulette Hamilton: Although I welcome the additional resource in response to the heatwave, it is simply not enough. Does the Secretary of State agree that until the Government address the systematic problems in social care to ensure that it is properly funded and people can be discharged quickly into the community, and we no longer see the revolving door service that is proving so damaging in the sector, we...
