Women and Equalities: Women Engineers (26 Nov 2015)

Tania Mathias: ...with Meccano sets. Will the Minister join me in asking toy manufacturers to make these kits for five-year-olds and upwards, instead of eight-year-olds and upwards, because we start really young in Twickenham?

Mr Shaker Aamer — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (25 Nov 2015)

John Hayes: ...accomplished to remember all the interventions and then respond to them in sequence. I need to do them one by one, and I am sure that my hon. Friend will understand. My hon. Friend the Member for Twickenham (Dr Mathias) made her point and put it on record, but she must know that it would not be appropriate for me to comment on the details of anyone involved in alleged events in Guantanamo...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Spending Review and Autumn Statement (25 Nov 2015)

George Osborne: ...concerns that were raised, including by my hon. Friend, and because of the improvement in public finances we can help families move to the lower welfare, higher wage economy that I know people in Twickenham want. On investment in our infrastructure, I have detailed the plans that we have set out for roads and railways. When it comes to airports my hon. Friend must be patient just a little...

Compulsory Emergency First Aid Education (State-funded Secondary Schools) Bill (20 Nov 2015)

Will Quince: ...aid. In my view, it should be more flexible. I hope that that can be addressed in Committee to allow social enterprises, volunteers and charities to help. Perhaps my hon. Friend the Member for Twickenham (Dr Mathias) might even want to go to her local school and impart some of her considerable knowledge in this area. My wife is a teacher, albeit at primary level, so I fully understand the...

Compulsory Emergency First Aid Education (State-funded Secondary Schools) Bill (20 Nov 2015)

Tania Mathias: ...some basic research in my constituency, because it surprised me to learn that only one in four schools provided first aid or CPR education. I am heartened by the fact that most of the schools in Twickenham that have responded to my inquiries already provide CPR education for their students: that is terrific. Well done Waldegrave and Lady Eleanor Holles! I am bigging up the girls, because...

Rugby World Cup Legacy (6 Nov 2015)

Ed Vaizey: ..., I am sure she will take the opportunity to do so. I was pleased to hear that the RFU signed a deal this week with the American National Football League to have additional matches take place in Twickenham. The recent matches at Wembley have demonstrated the UK’s passion for the sport and we look forward to welcoming more fans and more teams to London.

Backbench Business: Tax Credits (29 Oct 2015)

Rebecca Long-Bailey: ...some of the so-called measures that the Government say will offset the tax credit losses. The hon. Member for Colchester (Will Quince) supported the call for mitigation. The hon. Member for Twickenham (Dr Mathias) fully supported the Chancellor’s claims about higher wages, but agreed that those at the lowest end of the income scale must be protected. The hon. Member for North Cornwall...

Chagos Islands (28 Oct 2015)

James Duddridge: ...about operating alongside a community, but I recognise the points that have been made by strong advocates, some of whom have met people on the doorstep, such as my hon. Friend the Member for Twickenham (Dr Mathias), and some of whom are long-standing advocates, such as my hon. Friend the Member for Crawley (Henry Smith), who has been bending my ear on the subject from probably the day I...

[Geraint Davies in the Chair] — Tropical Diseases (27 Oct 2015)

Grant Shapps: ...affected districts. We are working in partnership with the World Health Organisation to improve the availability and use of high-quality data for decision making—my hon. Friend the Member for Twickenham (Dr Mathias) rightly raised the subject of data—and, through the UK’s significant contribution to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, life-saving anti-malarials...

Local Flooding (23 Oct 2015)

Kwasi Kwarteng: My hon. Friend the Member for Twickenham (Dr Mathias) raises interesting issues but, in this debate, I want to stay closely to the issues I have raised. I suspect we may have to have another debate to discuss Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs morphological studies.

Defence Expenditure (NATO Target) Bill (23 Oct 2015)

Gerald Howarth: will be, but even if it is, 19 frigates and destroyers is woefully inadequate for a seafaring nation such as ours. There is a decision to reduce Army regulars to 82,000—all of whom could fill Twickenham tomorrow night—as a cost-saving measure. Yes, we are contributing small numbers of personnel around the globe in pursuit of our welcome defence engagement strategy, but during...

Standing Orders (Public Business) (22 Oct 2015)

Chris Grayling: ...the countries of the United Kingdom, so I cheered when Wales and Northern Ireland secured their places in Euro 2016 and was dismayed last Sunday when Scotland was so narrowly pipped at the post at Twickenham. I will always cheer the home nations in competition. I have, however, listened with concern to some in England who have expressed less enthusiasm than me about the future of the UK. I...

Rupa Huq: ...for Croydon Central (Gavin Barwell), the hon. Member for Harrow East (Bob Blackman), the right hon. Member for Carshalton and Wallington (Tom Brake), whom I can see, and the hon. Member for Twickenham (Dr Mathias), constituencies where those affected by the change outweigh the majority that those Members have—to join us in the Lobby tonight.

Heathrow: Noise Mitigation (19 Oct 2015)

Tania Mathias: .... Friends the Members for Bracknell (Dr Lee) and for Henley (John Howell) and my right hon. Friend the Member for Wokingham (John Redwood) have said, such is the experience closer to Heathrow for Twickenham, Teddington and Hampton, I do not believe there can be mitigation, regardless of the new trials. It is only because of the Teddington action group that a report was produced on 15...

Backbench Business — [2nd Allotted Day]: Superfast Broadband (12 Oct 2015)

Ed Vaizey: ...we have delivered that to more than 3 million homes and businesses, and we are fast approaching 4 million. We are hitting our targets time and again. We may not be able to beat the Australians at Twickenham, but when it comes to broadband we beat them hands down!

Written Ministerial Statements — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Ministerial Correction (12 Oct 2015)

Tobias Ellwood: During the Westminster Hall debate “Arms Sales (Human Rights)” on Thursday, 17 September (HC Deb, col 407WH) I told my right hon. Friend, the Member for Twickenham (Dr Mathias), that Bahrain was “an example of a country that is on the list of concern”, referring to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s list of 27 countries of human rights concern, as set out in the 2014 Annual Human...

[Mr David Amess in the Chair] — Arms Sales (Human Rights) (17 Sep 2015)

Tobias Ellwood: ...touch on some of the important contributions, and I echo the comments on the standard and importance of this debate. It is a healthy debate for the House to have. My hon. Friend the Member for Twickenham (Dr Mathias) mentioned cluster munitions, as did the shadow Minister, the right hon. Member for Leeds Central (Hilary Benn)—I have got to know him so well that I wanted to say my right...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Migration (16 Sep 2015)

Theresa May: I will give the right hon. Lady the same reply that I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Twickenham (Dr Mathias): we are clear that ODA funding will be available for the first year as the ruling on such funding is that it is available for 12 months. Thereafter, discussions will take place with the LGA, those involved in this issue, and with the Treasury, and the Chancellor has made clear...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Trade Union Bill (14 Sep 2015)

Alan Johnson: ...emanates is under new management. I suppose we could describe the former Secretary of State as the artist formerly known as Vince, and how we miss the worldly wise maturity of the former Member for Twickenham, who obviously managed to keep the padlock on the playpen in his years at 1 Victoria Street. He described the Bill as “vindictive, counterproductive and ideologically driven,” and...

Rugby World Cup 2015 (11 Sep 2015)

Tracey Crouch: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Twickenham (Dr Mathias) on securing this incredibly important and extremely timely debate. She and other hon.
