Afghanistan - Motion to Take Note (18 Aug 2021)

Lord Balfe: ...mount a mission on our own without the United States. We are dependent on the United States where the mission goes. There were 90,000 US troops out of 130,000 at the height. My noble friend Lady Morrissey talked about values that we may have to live with. We are going to have to talk to the Taliban; we may not like it, but if we do not, we will have the entire Afghan middle class as...

Business of the House (15 Jul 2021)

Joy Morrissey: ...the announcement of personal choice and independent health management being restored next week.

Oxford-Cambridge Arc — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (13 Jul 2021)

Steven Baker: ...debate. I am extremely grateful to my right hon. Friend the Minister for some of the things he said. Before I come on to those, I was grateful that my hon.

If people have taken enormous risks all their lives, in order to buy themselves a large house in a nice place, they are going...

Covid-19: Religious and Ethnic Minority Communities — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (22 Jun 2021)

Jim Shannon: ...of covid-induced new poor rose by 119 million to 124 million in 2020, and may increase to between 143 million and 163 million this year. That is worrying for me, because if someone does not have a job to feed their wife and children and to keep their head above water, the impact of covid will be greater. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees warns that the pandemic is a force...

Coronavirus: Supporting Businesses and Individuals (23 Feb 2021)

Joy Morrissey: ...sorts of schemes that I would like to thank my right hon. Friend the Chancellor for are the grant schemes that councils have been administrating. Buckinghamshire Council has done an excellent job in getting this vital business support to our local businesses as quickly as possible; unlike some local authorities, it has given out all of its grant funding to small businesses. I ask Ministers...

Covid-19 (22 Feb 2021)

Penny Mordaunt: wait for its work. All of us can help in this, and certainly if I as a constituency MP encounter somebody who I feel should have a vaccine, I encourage them to go and talk to their GP. It is our job to stand up for those people. My hon. Friend the Member for Ipswich (Tom Hunt) pointed to the plight of people with a learning disability who have to be outside a school setting. I have...

Treasury: Support for Businesses: Covid-19 (26 Jan 2021)

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Local Authority Funding (11 Jan 2021)

Joy Morrissey: ...will ensure that councils have the financial support they need to respond to covid-19 and support their local communities?

Before Christmas, we will be talking about the...

Homelessness and Temporary Accommodation — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (2 Dec 2020)

Joy Morrissey: ...this problem proactively. Something that I noticed in the west midlands was the approach of linking housing to employment. Andy Street, the Mayor of the west midlands, has done an excellent job of providing housing, employment opportunities and transport. As housing is a devolved matter, mainly to the Mayor or local authorities, it would be worth the Mayor of London looking at how he can...

Covid-19 (11 Nov 2020)

Ruth Cadbury: The incredibly moving contributions from my colleagues, my hon. Friend the Member for Kingston upon Hull West and Hessle (Emma Hardy) and the hon. Member for Beaconsfield (Joy Morrissey), remind us that every death is a family member and a friend; this reaches every one of us. Today, we hear that the death toll from covid has hit 50,000, the fifth highest in the world, but the UK is only...

Family Visits in Health and Social Care Settings: Covid-19 (11 Nov 2020)

Andy Carter: It is a pleasure to speak under your chairmanship, Ms McVey. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Beaconsfield (Joy Morrissey) for securing this important debate. One of the harshest features of the restrictions that we introduced many months ago to stop the spread of covid has been for our constituents not to be able to visit their loved ones in care homes. I have received—as I am sure...

London’s Economic Recovery: Covid-19 (23 Oct 2020)

Paul Scully: ...high streets. How can we work with landlords and tenants to find a better balance that works for our local areas so that we do not hollow them out? My hon. Friend the Member for Beaconsfield (Joy Morrissey) talked about the Mayor. I sometimes get the sense that he does not care whether he is the Mayor of London or the mayor of Gotham City; he just wants to be the Mayor. What do I mean...

Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (North East of England) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve (12 Oct 2020)

Baroness Morrissey: ...damage is mounting. The nascent economic recovery has stalled; unemployment is rising, albeit still the tip of the iceberg of what we might yet see. The poverty that will come as a result of those job losses is obviously not far behind. University students, already fearful for their future, are incarcerated in their halls of residence. Mental health issues are clearly arising and...

Coronavirus Act 2020: Temporary Provisions - Motion to Take Note (28 Sep 2020)

Lord Bethell: ...Nottingham gave a complete masterclass in note-free, elegantly phrased gravitas of the kind that made him envied in the other place and will, I fear, set a new bar for us here. My noble friend Lady Morrissey gave us an absolutely clear set of evidence of why she was such an illustrious figure in the City and will no doubt be an effective standard bearer for Britain’s transition from the...

Health and Social Care Workers: Recognition and Reward (25 Jun 2020)

Helen Whately: ...who are at their most vulnerable. That was articulated so well this afternoon by my hon. Friends the Members for Peterborough (Paul Bristow), for Watford (Dean Russell), for Beaconsfield (Joy Morrissey) and for Rother Valley (Alexander Stafford) and many other colleagues. Hon. Members will be aware that the Government do not set pay for social care workers in England. However, we are...

Domestic Abuse Bill (28 Apr 2020)

Jess Phillips: ...or the Family Justice Board review? Surely the Minister can see that this seems back to front and that, actually, political will says that she can act today. The hon. Member for Beaconsfield (Joy Morrissey) and my hon. Friend the Member for Bermondsey and Old Southwark (Neil Coyle) made eloquent cases for the priority housing need, and I hope that Ministers heard their calls, because I...
