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

Suzanne Webb: It is a pleasure to be back here physically to speak. A Government’s first duty is always to protect their people, and this flagship Bill will ensure that our justice system will always serve the law-abiding majority. It is timely after recent events as it emphasises that this Government put women’s safety front and centre. The Bill lengthens jail time for serious sexual offenders and...

Policing and Prevention of Violence against Women (15 Mar 2021)

Suzanne Webb: I am proud of a Government who, since 2010, have put women’s safety at the heart of their policymaking. Does my right hon. Friend agree that our landmark Domestic Abuse Bill puts women at the front and centre of this Government’s policymaking when it comes to tackling violence against women and girls?

Northern Ireland Protocol (10 Mar 2021)

Suzanne Webb: Can my right hon. Friend confirm that he is reassured that the EU now has no desire to block suppliers fulfilling contracts for vaccine distribution to Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK? Does he agree that it is only through international collaboration that we will beat this pandemic once and for all?

Income Tax (Charge) ( 9 Mar 2021)

Suzanne Webb: Covid-19 has had a catastrophic impact on our economy, but I truly believe that, despite that, it will provide the architecture for change and fertile ground for innovation. We have already seen the homeworking revolution, the pace of digitalisation ramping up, the incredible speed of vaccination—from creation to roll-out—and the seeds of transformation in our NHS, with new ways of...

Covid-19: Government’s Publication of Contracts ( 9 Mar 2021)

Suzanne Webb: Is it not important to remember that over the course of this pandemic we have created the largest diagnostic network in British history, delivering around 90 million tests and contacting over 9 million people who would otherwise have spread the virus? Does my hon. Friend agree that our ability to set up this network is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our frontline health and...

Fire Safety Bill: After Clause 2 - Risk based guidance about the discharge of duties under the Fire Safety Order (24 Feb 2021)

Suzanne Webb: I welcome the steps the Government are taking to improve fire safety, including through this important Bill, which is critical in clarifying that fire risk assessments are updated to take account of external walls and flat entrance doors. The Bill provides clarity as to what needs to be covered in fire risk assessments and empowers fire and rescue services to confidently take enforcement...

Prime Minister: Engagements (24 Feb 2021)

Suzanne Webb: Although hospitality has had to close its doors, in true black country spirit many of my venues have been entrepreneurial and now offer a great takeaway service. To celebrate that entrepreneurial spirit, today I am launching a “favourite takeaway” competition in my constituency. Will the Prime Minister join me in launching that competition, and will he also join me in a takeaway from the...

Coronavirus: Supporting Businesses and Individuals (23 Feb 2021)

Suzanne Webb: For almost a year now, this Government have been providing an unprecedented level of support to the individuals and businesses of our country. I want to highlight some of the ways in which businesses in Stourbridge have benefited from the measures put in place by this Government, and some of our share of the £280 billion package of support for people and businesses. I turn first to the...

Government's Management of the Economy (23 Feb 2021)

Suzanne Webb: The charge today is that the concerted economic failure of the past decade has “weakened the foundations” of our economy, leading to the country “suffering the worst economic crisis of any major economy”. The simple truth—I talk as someone who walks the steps of an ordinary person—is that, under successive Conservative Governments, we have seen nine consecutive years of economic...

Covid-19: Road Map (22 Feb 2021)

Suzanne Webb: I welcome the statement today and the prudent and cautious measures to reducing lockdown restrictions. We have all had our role to play in combating the virus, and it is a role that will continue for some time, so will the Prime Minister join me in saying thank you to all my constituents in Stourbridge for their continued patience and resilience, whether that is the fabulous Dudley NHS, my...

Covid-19 Update ( 9 Feb 2021)

Suzanne Webb: I welcome today’s statement and I am very proud of all my constituents across Stourbridge, Cradley and Lye for the way in which they have fully understood and taken on board the fact that we all have our role to play in defeating this virus. Does my right hon. Friend agree that the constant flip-flopping and reliance on hindsight by the Labour party is nothing more than its seeking only to...

Northern Ireland Protocol: Implementation ( 2 Feb 2021)

Suzanne Webb: Will my right hon. Friend take this opportunity to confirm that the UK Government will never tolerate any attempt by the European Commission or any other foreign authority to deny the people of Northern Ireland access to the covid vaccines, which this Government have been so successful in securing?

Unsafe Cladding: Protecting Tenants and Leaseholders ( 1 Feb 2021)

Suzanne Webb: I, too, welcome my hon. Friend the Member for Walsall North (Eddie Hughes) to the Dispatch Box. I do not think any of us can ever forget that morning, waking up to see the tragedy unfolding before our eyes at Grenfell Tower—a tragedy that must never happen again. People must feel safe in their homes, and we must make it a priority to ensure it never happens again and what steps are taken...

Employment Rights: Government Plans (25 Jan 2021)

Suzanne Webb: The Secretary of State has been very clear: we are not going to lower the standards of workers’ rights. There is no plan to do so—there is no doubt in this area—so where is the debate? We have one of the best workers’ rights records in the world—rights that go much further than the EU’s—and high standards that were never dependent on our membership of the EU. The whole point of...

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

Suzanne Webb: Council tax has always been a political battlefield, and it is right that it is debated, especially as we will all have our role to play at some point in the economic recovery, and it will define every single one of us—not just as individuals, but as a nation—as to how well we do this and how quickly. What I like about these debates is that they provide the opportunity to address the...

Universal Credit and Working Tax Credit (18 Jan 2021)

Suzanne Webb: Welfare dependency is an invidious culture that I am proud this Government do not champion, or aspire to. The universal credit uplift was always temporary. It was part of the generous package from this Government to ensure that all parts of society were supported during the pandemic. The better conversation and debate we should have been having today is about job creation and the...

Education: Topical Questions (18 Jan 2021)

Suzanne Webb: If he will make a statement on his departmental responsibilities.

Education: Topical Questions (18 Jan 2021)

Suzanne Webb: May I, too, start by thanking all teachers and educational staff in Stourbridge, who continue to do a vital job in the most difficult of circumstances? Although we are asking the vast majority of schools to move to remote provision, does my right hon. Friend agree that it is only right that we, once again, keep schools open for vulnerable children and those whose parents are working on the...

Xinjiang: Forced Labour (12 Jan 2021)

Suzanne Webb: I welcome the Secretary of State’s statement today. Does he agree that it is essential for the relevant international bodies to be granted unfettered access to Xinjiang to assess human rights abuses occurring?

Education: Return in January (30 Dec 2020)

Suzanne Webb: I stand steadfast behind the Government in their determination to protect young people’s education, and Ministers are right to say that it is a national priority. There is a theme to my questions today, and rightly so, as we end what has been a difficult and challenging year for those working on the frontline. Will my right hon. Friend join me in thanking all those who work in schools in my...
