Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued) (23 Jan 2017)

Lord Murphy of Torfaen: .... All are based on ethical principles. They are rooted in their local communities and in Christianity. They have a common commitment to social justice. An example of that is St Mary’s University, Twickenham, with its Centre for the Study of Modern Slavery. Some 5% of all UK students—about 100,000—study in such universities. That is the equivalent of the total number of higher...

New Partnership with the EU (17 Jan 2017)

Keith Vaz: Further to the point made by the hon. Member for Twickenham (Dr Mathias), the speech contains the word “guarantee”, so there is a commitment from the Government that they want to do this. However, with 3.5 million EU citizens living in our country, what will be the cut-off date— 23 June, the date we trigger article 50 or the date that we leave? Certainty is extremely important, and...

Delegated Legislation: Defibrillators in Public Areas (16 Jan 2017)

David Mowat: ...excellent speech by saying that defibrillators save lives. We accept that; there is no question but that that is the case. Before I respond to the points that she and my hon. Friend the Member for Twickenham (Dr Mathias) made, I want to add my congratulations to the Oliver King Foundation on its work, and to the family on turning a terrible tragedy into something positive. We have heard...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (9 Jan 2017)

Tania Mathias: Last month, I asked the Government to introduce mandatory video recording of all DWP employment and support allowance assessments because a constituent of mine in Twickenham was treated with less respect than the character in the fictional film “I, Daniel Blake”. When will mandatory video recording commence?

Leasehold and Commonhold Reform: Christmas Adjournment (20 Dec 2016)

Michael Ellis: ...of religion in general throughout the year, as well as for Christians persecuted around the world—sadly, the number of persecuted Christians is ever increasing. My hon. Friend the Member for Twickenham (Dr Mathias) spoke of Department for Work and Pensions assessments, and she is a fiercely independent voice throughout the year. I mean that as a compliment, although some Members behind...

UK Nationals Imprisoned Abroad — [Robert Flello in the Chair] (20 Dec 2016)

Patrick Grady: ...the UK? If UK citizens in such desperate circumstances cannot rely on the Government to defend their basic human rights, why should the rest of us at home have any confidence? The hon. Member for Twickenham (Dr Mathias) made a very important point about rendition, particularly the use of the British Indian Ocean Territory. The Government have to be clear about whether that territory has...

Exiting the Eu: Science and Research (19 Dec 2016)

Robin Walker: ...and East Thurrock (Stephen Metcalfe), and I welcome the report, to which the Government will respond in full at a later date. To answer a point raised by him and by my hon. Friend the Member for Twickenham (Dr Mathias), we are working closely with the Government’s chief scientific adviser and the Government Office for Science to ensure that we have access to the expertise that we need....

Preventing and Combating Violence Against Women and Domestic Violence (Ratification of Convention) Bill (16 Dec 2016)

Sarah Champion: ...three women across the world will experience some form of abuse. That shows us why both this debate and the ratification of the Istanbul convention are so incredibly important. The hon. Member for Twickenham (Dr Mathias) described her experience in her constituency and said that a police officer had told her that we are more unsafe in our own homes than we are on the streets. Again, that...

Dartford Crossing: Congestion — [Mr Albert Owen in the Chair] (7 Dec 2016)

Gareth Johnson: ..., partly because of the lack of connectivity east of London compared with that to the west of London. Chelsea and Battersea trade very well and the transportation links are very good. Richmond and Twickenham are north and south of the Thames and interlink very well. However, when we come to the border between Essex and Kent, the Thames is like a brick wall between the two counties. Those...

National Health Service Funding (22 Nov 2016)

Siobhain McDonagh: ...programme, that the closure of St Helier was the main recommendation. Despite that, however, colleagues on the Government Benches, including the hon. Members for Wimbledon (Stephen Hammond) and for Twickenham (Dr Mathias), have been taken in by the STP, peddling the myth that no hospitals will close. When is a closure a closure? If A&E and maternity services, and all the associated...

Heathrow Expansion: Air Quality — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (22 Nov 2016)

John Hayes: .... My right hon. Friend also made it clear that the Government’s announcement was just the beginning of the consultative process I described earlier, which will allow my hon. Friend the Member for Twickenham and others in the community and elsewhere to make their views known. Let me be clear on the impact of the expansion. The Government’s commitment to dealing with emissions will be...

Employment and Support Allowance and Universal Credit (17 Nov 2016)

Eilidh Whiteford: ...ESA and universal credit that will cause hardship and distress to thousands of people who are not fit for work. The exchanges between the hon. Members for South Cambridgeshire (Heidi Allen) and for Twickenham (Dr Mathias) captured this point succinctly when they said that we need to pause to allow the support infrastructure to catch up. Ministers know that we in the SNP have been deeply...

Air Quality (3 Nov 2016)

Therese Coffey: In answer to my hon. Friend the Member for Twickenham (Dr Mathias), I set out that the Government believe that the runway at Heathrow can be delivered without impacting on the UK’s compliance on air quality. The Secretary of State for Transport was at the Dispatch Box on 25 October and talked about the Department for Transport, DEFRA and the Treasury embarking on a joint project “to...

National College for Wind Energy (1 Nov 2016)

Melanie Onn: ...for the proposed national college for wind energy, meaning that the project will stay stalled. The college was first announced in December 2014 by the then Business Secretary, the former Member for Twickenham. Three other colleges were aimed at addressing existing or forecast skills shortages in particular industries, and the policy included £80 million of Government funding to be matched...

Concentrix: Yemen (26 Oct 2016)

Kate Osamor: for a proper investigation of all these allegations. As an illustration of the cross-party concern on these issues, we heard forceful and eloquent contributions from the hon. Member for Twickenham (Dr Mathias), who told us of the use of cluster bombs, the hon. Member for Ochil and South Perthshire (Ms Ahmed-Sheikh), who spoke of the atrocities in Yemen and the targeting of innocent...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (26 Oct 2016)

Tania Mathias: Around Heathrow legal air quality limits are being breached, and over Twickenham noise pollution has increased, according to Heathrow data. Can the Prime Minister explain how a third runway can be delivered and comply with legal pollution requirements? Does she agree that, environmentally, Heathrow is not good enough and cannot possibly be both bigger and better?

Airport Capacity (25 Oct 2016)

Chris Grayling: First, let me say to my hon. Friend, and to my hon. Friend the Member for Twickenham (Dr Mathias) and others, that I know this is a difficult decision for a number of colleagues to accept. I respect their views and have every sympathy for the pressure that we are putting them under by doing this. My hon. Friend the Member for Kingston and Surbiton (James Berry) is my constituency next-door...

BHS: Industrial Strategy (20 Oct 2016)

Chris White: ...(Mr Wright), in his seat—and we are currently taking evidence on this concept. We have recently heard evidence from the right hon. Member for Tatton (Mr Osborne), the former Member for Twickenham and Lord Heseltine, who all assured us in their own different and special ways that we have had an industrial strategy all along. Perhaps they are right, but I would like to use this speech to...
