Financial and Social Emergency Support Package (25 Mar 2020)

Dawn Butler: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. I absolutely agree that, at this time of national crisis, parties should come together.

If we suspend before the Adjournment today, can we order the Prime Minister to come to the House to deliver the...

Financial and Social Emergency Support Package (25 Mar 2020)

Dawn Butler: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker.

Does he not think that things have been done in reverse? He is holding the House in contempt. He is the Minister who loves the procedures of this House, so why have the Government...

Financial and Social Emergency Support Package (25 Mar 2020)

Dawn Butler: I do hope this is not my right hon. Friend’s last outing at the Dispatch Box. I very much thank him for writing two Labour manifestos; a lot of that is being carried out today. He talks about this being a war and the Government talk about it being a war. If it is a war, is it not right that we should be sending in our doctors and nurses with the protective equipment they need to fight that war?

Financial and Social Emergency Support Package (25 Mar 2020)

Dawn Butler: The mode of travel for construction workers going to work is often trains and the tube. The Minister and the Government talk about the trains and the tube system, and about how people should be staying at home. How can they marry the two? If we do not close the places where people go to work, they are going to travel on the trains. Does my hon. Friend agree?

Financial and Social Emergency Support Package (25 Mar 2020)

Dawn Butler: First, I send my deepest condolences to all who have lost loved ones in this global pandemic, and to all who are worried about loved ones. I thank the Clerks, the cleaners, the police and all the essential staff who are here keeping Parliament running, but I echo the sentiments of the Members from across the House who have said that we really must investigate how we can work remotely in this...

Dawn Butler: Can the Minister confirm that the disproportionate impact on women was specifically considered at the recent Cobra meeting dealing with the effects of coronavirus? Our country’s social infrastructure has been weakened by this Government’s cuts—86% of the cuts have fallen on women. The gig economy and zero-hours contracts have affected women more than any other group, hence the rise of...

International Women’s Day (5 Mar 2020)

Dawn Butler: I want to thank the Government for making time available for this debate—looking at the Minister, I am glad that I did not wear my pink jacket today; that would have been a little awkward. It is important for so many reasons to have this debate on the Floor of the House. We will mark and honour the important contributions that women make, not only in this place but across society.

Points of Order (5 Feb 2020)

Dawn Butler: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. The Home Office press team told journalists that all the people on a deportation flight to Jamaica were serious criminals.
