Backbench Business: Swansea Tidal Lagoon — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (8 Mar 2016)

Carolyn Harris: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Brady. I congratulate the hon. Member for Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire (Simon Hart) on obtaining the debate. The issue is close to my heart, and the heart of my hon. Friend the Member for Aberavon (Stephen Kinnock). We have heard that Tidal Lagoon Power is entirely privately owned, so when in February the Department of Energy...

Backbench Business: Swansea Tidal Lagoon — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (8 Mar 2016)

Carolyn Harris: Can the Minister confirm that there will be somebody from Wales on that committee?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Disability and Employment (14 Mar 2016)

Carolyn Harris: Last Friday we heard that an additional £1.2 billion is to be cut from the PIP budget. That translates into £2,000 a year less for more than 60,000 claimants. What method or madness led the Minister to think that cutting support could help PIP claimants into work or to achieve independent living?

[Geraint Davies in the Chair] — Faulty Electrical Imports (22 Mar 2016)

Carolyn Harris: I beg to move, That this House has considered the importation of faulty electrical goods. May I say what an absolute pleasure it is to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Davies? I am very pleased to see you in the Chair today, and you may be aware that I am speaking today as the recently elected chair of the all-party parliamentary group on home electrical safety. Today we take electricity for...

[Geraint Davies in the Chair] — Faulty Electrical Imports (22 Mar 2016)

Carolyn Harris: I appreciate my hon. Friend’s comments, and I am sure any speech he makes later will reflect his thoughts. Members of the House can help through the APPG on home electrical safety to find solutions and raise awareness. I am not sure whether the Minister has seen a counterfeit electrical product up close, but I hope he will join the APPG later this year. We have an event planned that will...

[Geraint Davies in the Chair] — Faulty Electrical Imports (22 Mar 2016)

Carolyn Harris: Thank you, Mr Davies. As a fellow Swansea Jack it is with great pride that I have served under your excellent chairmanship today. Today’s debate has demonstrated a depth of concern and strength of feeling about an important issue. I, like other MPs, pay tribute to Robert Jervis-Gibbons and Phil Buckle of Electrical Safety First for their excellent guidance, and their determination to bring...

Carolyn Harris: What progress has been made on the independent review on tidal lagoon energy announced in February 2016.

Energy and Climate Change: Tidal Lagoon Energy (24 Mar 2016)

Carolyn Harris: It has now been six weeks since the Department announced the independent review into tidal lagoon, and it is two weeks since the Minister assured me in Westminster Hall that the make-up of the review was being considered “right now”. Why, six weeks later, has the review not started? Although I appreciate that the Department is probably very genuine in its desire to get this work done, we...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Yemen (12 Apr 2016)

Personal Independence Payments — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (13 Apr 2016)

Carolyn Harris: Does the Minister appreciate that my constituent Linda Isaac, who is currently receiving chemotherapy for bowel cancer, who has waited for 19 weeks only to be denied PIP and another nine weeks for a mandatory reconsideration, will not appreciate the modern “dynamic” PIP system that he is talking about?

Backbench Business: Fixed Odds Betting Terminals — [Sir Alan Meale in the Chair] (26 Apr 2016)

Carolyn Harris: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Alan. I declare an interest as the newly elected chair of the all-party group on fixed odds betting terminals. I congratulate the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon) on securing the debate. I know that my hon. Friend the Member for Hyndburn (Graham Jones) was also very keen for it to take place. Huge amounts are being lost in fixed...

Backbench Business: Fixed Odds Betting Terminals — [Sir Alan Meale in the Chair] (26 Apr 2016)

Carolyn Harris: FOBTs have been called the “crack cocaine of gambling”, and what the hon. Gentleman says reinforces that idea. Betting shop staff are not in a position to intervene when punters, as they like to be called, exhibit signs of problem gambling. They have no training to deal with it. Every year, 7,000 FOBTs are smashed up by irate customers and there are 10,000 calls to the police, despite the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Electoral Reform (27 Apr 2016)

Carolyn Harris: Does the Minister agree that we must do everything possible to bring power closer to people in every part of the country, and that a good start would be to make it easier for people to engage in politics?

Safety in Custody and Violence in Prisons (9 May 2016)

Carolyn Harris: Wormwood Scrubs has been described by the Prison Officers Association as “flooded with drugs, mobiles phones and weapons” and by the chief inspector as having cells so bad you would not keep a dog in them. Does the Minister still think that this prison is fit for purpose?

Backbench Business - Universal Credit (Children)Backbench Business (10 May 2016)

Carolyn Harris: Does my hon. Friend agree that to expect hard-working families to work an extra 200 hours a year just to make up for the cruel cuts in universal credit is an outright insult?

Debate on the Address: Transport and Local Infrastructure (19 May 2016)

Business of the House: Disability Employment Gap (8 Jun 2016)
