Cyber-security and UK Democracy (25 Mar 2024)

Angela Eagle: I, too, am quite surprised at the difference between what was briefed and some of the information that the Deputy Prime Minister has given us today, and the sum of the action taken. He said that the Government had taken rapid and robust action when talking about things that happened three and four years ago, and the sanctioning of two individuals and a minor company does not seem to meet the...

backbench business: LGBT History Month — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] ( 7 Mar 2024)

Angela Eagle: I know how difficult it is for a Minister to get the entire Government to agree to do what they want them to do, when they want them to do it. However, that formulation of words has been used many times and we are coming to the end of the Parliament now. Can the Minister give us even a hint of whether this Bill will appear at all, or will we have to wait until after the general election?

backbench business: LGBT History Month — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] ( 7 Mar 2024)

Angela Eagle: No, I was just saying that I am not right hon.

backbench business: LGBT History Month — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] ( 7 Mar 2024)

Angela Eagle: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Stringer, in a room that is, for once, warmer than it is outside. Clearly, something is working better than it used to. Today’s debate comes after LGBT History Month, due to, I think, logjams in Back-Bench business. It is an opportunity to celebrate the many events that have happened in the last month, in schools, libraries, pubs, clubs...

backbench business: LGBT History Month — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] ( 7 Mar 2024)

Angela Eagle: I certainly agree.

backbench business: LGBT History Month — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] ( 7 Mar 2024)

Angela Eagle: It is a great luxury not to be pushed for time these days in the House and, Mr Stringer, you tempt me; but let us see how we get on. I particularly welcomed the Mayor of London’s announcement about the renaming of the overland train lines after what I think are progressive causes, one of which my hon. Friend the Member for Battersea (Marsha De Cordova) just mentioned, and a pretty...

backbench business: LGBT History Month — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] ( 7 Mar 2024)

Angela Eagle: The hon. Gentleman and I both attended the debate last Friday. Was he as disappointed as I was that, despite how modest the Bill was and how reasonable it attempted to be, some of the arguments against it were so unreasonable?

Income Tax (Charge) ( 6 Mar 2024)

Angela Eagle: This was a Budget entirely focused on the electoral prospects of the Conservative party, not the needs of the country or our people. The Chancellor decided that his only chance to get his party through the election was to trumpet so-called tax cuts, but the tax burden is actually going up. He has made an incredible series of assumptions about departmental spending up to five years in the...

Income Tax (Charge) ( 6 Mar 2024)

Angela Eagle: I think that the costing of the policy in the forecast ought to be more honest and it should be taken out of the scorecard if it is not to be put into effect. Taxes are still higher than they have been since the second world war, and the Government have continued to fritter billions on fraud and waste. Only today, we learned that taxpayers have had to pick up the bill for the legal costs of...

Income Tax (Charge) ( 6 Mar 2024)

Angela Eagle: My right hon. Friend must be able to read my mind, because that was exactly the point I was coming on to make: in real terms, there are cuts of up to 18% in unprotected Departments, going all the way through to the end of the next Parliament. That has been described by David Gauke, the Tory ex-Treasury Minister as the height of “fiscal irresponsibility”. The legacy of this Government is...

Prime Minister: Engagements ( 6 Mar 2024)

Angela Eagle: Which part of his economic legacy is the Prime Minister most proud of? Is it presiding over the highest tax burden since the second world war, or is it delivering the slowest real wage growth since the Napoleonic war?

Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Islamophobia ( 4 Mar 2024)

Angela Eagle: What assessment he has made of the potential impact of section 21 evictions on levels of homelessness.

Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Islamophobia ( 4 Mar 2024)

Angela Eagle: In 2019 the Government promised to abolish section 21 no-fault evictions, but the Bill that they finally published five years later, which the Minister mentioned, does not actually abolish section 21 no-fault evictions. Meanwhile, 140,000 children are living in costly temporary accommodation. In my constituency we get one or two cases every week. The problems are piling up. When will this...

Prayers - [Mr Speaker in the Chair] : Conversion Practices (Prohibition) Bill — [Mr Speaker in the Chair] ( 1 Mar 2024)

Angela Eagle: Does the Minister accept that if the Bill were to get a Second Reading, any of the Government’s worries about the current wording could be resolved in Committee? Those concerns are not a reason not to give the Bill a Second Reading today.

Prime Minister: Engagements (28 Feb 2024)

Angela Eagle: The Prime Minister has just told my right hon. Friend the Member for North Durham (Mr Jones) that, as a Minister, it is inappropriate for him to comment on the bullying allegations at the Post Office, yet he allows his Business and Trade Secretary to comment freely, loudly and often on Twitter. Is he content with her activities and behaviour in this respect?

Ceasefire in Gaza (21 Feb 2024)

Angela Eagle: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. Can you confirm that, many years ago, Opposition day debates were taken seriously by Governments, and if a Government lost a vote, as happened on the Gurkha motion when Labour was in government, they would put the motion into effect? Successive Conservative Administrations have largely ignored Opposition day debates. They have refused to take part in...

Points of Order (21 Feb 2024)

Angela Eagle: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker—[Interruption.]

Points of Order (21 Feb 2024)

Angela Eagle: Thank you very much, Madam Deputy Speaker. On the Treasury Committee, we have been considering the work of UK Government Investments across a range of issues. We have now got to a situation where quite complex decisions, which appear to have been referred to at board meetings of the Post Office, are obtuse to us. I wonder, given that the disagreement between Ministers and representatives from...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Radar and Radio Waves: Health Hazards (21 Feb 2024)

Angela Eagle: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, whether his Department has made an assessment of the potential impact of working in close proximity to (a) radar systems and (b) other radio frequency radiation emitters on incidences of cancer.
