Togo: Human Rights ( 8 Jan 2019)

Teresa Pearce: I beg to move, That this House has considered human rights in Togo. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Howarth. I am grateful to have been allocated this debate. I am saddened by its necessity, but necessary it is, as I wish to raise the serious and worsening human rights situation in Togo. At present, according to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office website, the United...

Togo: Human Rights ( 8 Jan 2019)

Teresa Pearce: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his intervention, particularly as it has given me time to catch my breath, because I have just run all the way across the parliamentary estate—there are not many things that a 63-year-old woman would run across the estate for, but I will for human rights in Togo. The issues in relation to the election are very important, and I will touch on them later. It is...

Togo: Human Rights ( 8 Jan 2019)

Teresa Pearce: I do have major concerns about that. If people are not free to access information and communicate with each other, it puts Togo in the same position as many other regimes, such as China. The Togolese Government beat their opposition for expressing dissent, and silence the media and journalists. In November, the Minister replied to a question that I raised, saying that the UK Government...

Togo: Human Rights ( 8 Jan 2019)

Teresa Pearce: I agree that this is not a job for just one country, but for many. The UK cannot act alone, but together with others it can. Anybody who can apply pressure and alleviate the suffering of the people of Togo should be welcomed and encouraged. I would be interested to know the Minister’s view on that issue. It is my sincere hope that the UK Government will work closely with the Togolese...

Private Rented Sector — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (29 Nov 2018)

Teresa Pearce: My constituency is in two boroughs with very different approaches. In 2016-17, one had to spend £5 million on temporary accommodation. For that borough, trying to end any sort of tenancy—no matter how bad the landlord—is counterintuitive, because it would then have to house the tenants but it does not have any housing stock. This issue is to do with political will and resources, and...

South Eastern Rail Franchise — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (27 Nov 2018)

Teresa Pearce: What the hon. Gentleman says about Network Rail and Southeastern is true. People buy a ticket from Southeastern, but the issue may often be with Network Rail, and the two do not work together. I am sure that he will not be surprised that, a few years ago, Network Rail spent a fortune extending all the platforms so that they could take 12-car trains, but Southeastern did not buy 12-car trains....

2019 Loan Charge — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (20 Nov 2018)

Teresa Pearce: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

2019 Loan Charge — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (20 Nov 2018)

Teresa Pearce: The hon. Gentleman is being very generous with his time and I thank him for securing this debate. On that last point, my constituent was a civil servant for 37 years. In 2010, his team was TUPE-ed from the Ministry of Defence to Hewlett Packard. He retired in 2013. In 2014, they asked him back to oversee a Ministry of Defence contract, but refused to take him back on pay-as-you-earn and said...

Teresa Pearce: To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, how many help to buy equity loans have been made since the start of that scheme; and of those loans what proportion were for leasehold properties.

Health and Social Care Committee: Future of Legal Aid ( 1 Nov 2018)

Teresa Pearce: My hon. Friend is being extremely generous in giving way. During the passage of the Bill, the Government said that they believed that withdrawing legal aid for family matters would increase mediation, but research shows a 56% decrease in mediation. The Law Society says that early advice from a solicitor was a significant source of referrals to mediation in family matters. I agree with that,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (31 Oct 2018)

Teresa Pearce: In 2014, I wrote to Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs and the then Chancellor to ask how much tax was unpaid on letting income from private landlords. HMRC wrote back to me and said that it was £500 million, in its estimate, which is enough to build about 7,000 social homes. How much is that tax gap now?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (17 Oct 2018)

Teresa Pearce: My constituent came to see me earlier this year about being sexually harassed at work by a co-worker. Despite many months of meetings with her human resources department and line management, she has been treated like the problem rather than the victim. Can the Prime Minister advise me on what I can do to help my constituent return to work and feel safe when her employer is this House?
