Horizon: Compensation and Convictions ( 8 Jan 2024)

Maria Miller: Following the ITV drama broadcast last week, I have been contacted by many constituents, and they will welcome the Minister’s focus today on justice for every single victim. But he knows that, despite his efforts and those of many other Ministers, the Criminal Cases Review Commission has said that many of the 700 people who have had criminal convictions will not take part in a further legal...

Long-term Plan for Housing (19 Dec 2023)

Maria Miller: Will my hon. Friend confirm that over the past 12 months, in writing and at the Dispatch Box, Ministers have consistently said that when making a local plan, planning authorities will be able to take into account historically high house building levels by lowering the amount of housing they need to plan for? Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council has delivered exceptional levels of house...

Maria Miller: Order. Will the hon. Member wind up, please?

Christmas, Christianity and Communities — [Dame Maria Miller in the Chair] (19 Dec 2023)

Maria Miller: Order. I do not think that we do advertising in here.

International Health Regulations 2005 — [Dame Maria Miller in the Chair] (18 Dec 2023)

Maria Miller: Before I call the first speaker, I remind Members that if they wish to contribute, they should bob. I remind those sitting in the Public Gallery that there should be no applause and no photographs at any time.

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill (12 Dec 2023)

Maria Miller: Will my right hon. Friend give way?

Education: Pupils with SEN and Disabilities (11 Dec 2023)

Maria Miller: One in 10 children in education in my constituency receives special educational needs support. Thanks to the Department for Education, we have had a new special school, the Austen Academy—that is a free school—and significant increases in budgets, but can we also ensure that teaching children with special needs is a mainstream part of teacher education? Supporting children with special...

Sri Lankan Tamils and Human Rights — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] ( 5 Dec 2023)

Maria Miller: It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Edward. I congratulate the hon. Member for Linlithgow and East Falkirk (Martyn Day) on securing this debate. I very much welcome the opportunity to contribute, and particularly to look at the importance of human rights in Sri Lanka and to speak up for those of my constituents who still have close links to the Sri Lankan Tamil...

Victims and Prisoners Bill: New Clause 20 - Domestic abuse related death reviews ( 4 Dec 2023)

Maria Miller: Let me start by thanking my right hon. Friend the Minister for the constructive way in which he has engaged with the Bill since its Second Reading. In the interests of time, I will confine my comments to the two amendments that I have tabled, which have cross-party support and to which I think the Government are listening intently. Amendment 1 would recognise as victims people who have been...

Victims and Prisoners Bill: New Clause 20 - Domestic abuse related death reviews ( 4 Dec 2023)

Maria Miller: I think it goes to the heart of the case when someone with such extensive experience endorses a change of approach, and my right hon. and learned Friend is entirely right. The new clause calls for a change that would transfer the decision to release records to a judge, but would also ensure that counselling records are disclosed only when they are “of substantial probative value”. I would...

Independent Complaints and Grievance Scheme — [Sir Robert Syms in the Chair] (30 Nov 2023)

Maria Miller: I thank everybody who has taken part in the debate, and I hope our comments will be listened to carefully. The ICGS is a system of well thought-through procedures and processes that provide an avenue for redress and for changing culture and behaviour in this place. Not all the original proposals have been implemented or adhered to, so I urge the review to consider how many of the current...

Independent Complaints and Grievance Scheme — [Sir Robert Syms in the Chair] (30 Nov 2023)

Maria Miller: The Minister said a phrase a few moments ago that I think is important: the ICGS is a system. It is not a thing, but a system; it is a number of different elements. The concern that I expressed, and that has come from elsewhere, is that although we may be having this review at the moment, not all of the system has actually been implemented—many elements of it were never implemented. Will...

Independent Complaints and Grievance Scheme — [Sir Robert Syms in the Chair] (30 Nov 2023)

Maria Miller: I beg to move, That this House has considered the work of the Independent Complaints and Grievance Scheme. It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Robert. I am here today because the reputation of Parliament matters, and how we conduct ourselves here matters. Like many workplaces, we are grappling with issues around bullying, harassment and sexual misconduct, and we are...

Independent Complaints and Grievance Scheme — [Sir Robert Syms in the Chair] (30 Nov 2023)

Maria Miller: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his timely intervention. I will come to the specifics of that point later in my remarks. One reason for calling the debate today is that there is not that surety. The cases go on for months, not weeks, because of the number of cases that are being referred to the ICGS. There needs to be a review of how the organisation operates to address the very remarks that...
