Bills Presented: Vote 100 and International Women’s Day (8 Mar 2018)

Maria Miller: ...working a reality from day one for everybody in this country. As was asked earlier, is this a turning point and a landmark year? I am sure that people at the time of the first and second world wars and in the 1960s and 1970s, when so much of the legislation we enjoy today was put in place, felt that those were landmark years. The reason why we may do better in calling this a landmark year,...

Parliamentary Scrutiny of Leaving the EU (12 Oct 2016)

Maria Miller: ...(Alistair Burt) said, “We can’t do it the same old way,” and he is absolutely right. There are scrutiny mechanisms and the Government should use them, but our constituents will not accept warring factions; the right hon. Member for Birmingham, Edgbaston (Ms Stuart) was right about that. Scoring points will not win this. Our strongest position is to be united.

Centenary of the Battle of the Somme (29 Jun 2016)

Maria Miller: ...gave a moving speech, talking in very human terms about one of the bloodiest battles in our country’s history.

It is also a great privilege to follow the powerful speech made by my hon. Friend the Member...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: First World War Commemoration (27 Nov 2014)

Maria Miller: Our perceptions of the first world war have been shaped by historians but also by the artists of the time. The team at 14-18 NOW, in particular Jenny Waldman and Vikki Heywood, have helped artists today shape our commemorations of this important event. Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red at the Tower of London is part of the 14-18 NOW work and I am sure the Secretary of State will want to join...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: First World War Commemoration (12 Dec 2013)

Maria Miller: I recently took my family to St Symphorien and had the privilege of seeing John Parr’s grave—it was a moving moment for us all. We are working with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission to trace other families of men buried at St Symphorien, and we very much hope that a number of the families will be able to attend the event. We would welcome any help in tracing the families involved.

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: First World War Commemoration (12 Dec 2013)

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: First World War Commemoration (12 Dec 2013)

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: First World War Commemoration (12 Dec 2013)

Maria Miller: My hon. Friend is absolutely right that there are very few communities in our country that do not possess a memorial to those who fell in the first world war, although there are, of course, a few thankful villages that had no need for one and might commemorate the event in different ways. We already have a good funding level for the restoration of memorials, but this is something that we...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: First World War Centenary (18 Apr 2013)

Maria Miller: My hon. Friend is right to say that every community—and, indeed, every individual—in this country can find their story with regards to the first world war. My officials have been talking to the BBC and other institutions that are already well developed in the ways they will be supporting this important event, which was probably one of the most defining in this nation’s history.

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: First World War Centenary (18 Apr 2013)

Maria Miller: The hon. Lady raises the important issue of the role of women and the way in which the first world war had an immeasurable impact on that. I would, of course, be delighted to hear more about the point she raises, particularly the role of women in medicine. The lottery will make available funding for local community projects, and I am already working closely with Scotland and Scottish...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: First World War Centenary (18 Apr 2013)

Maria Miller: I have to say that the tone of the hon. Gentleman’s intervention is not quite what I would like to hear. We should ensure that we mark the entirety of the first world war from its beginning to its end, as it had a considerable impact on every community in this country. I recently had the honour of visiting many of the war graves of those who gave their lives throughout the war, and we need...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: First World War (Commemoration) (22 Nov 2012)

Maria Miller: My hon. Friend rightly highlights the importance of local events, and I urge all hon. Members to examine the connection between their area and the first world war. It is by bringing it to life in this very local and personal way that we can give this commemoration the importance it needs. The Government are investing more than £50 million in projects such as the refurbishment of the Imperial...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (22 Nov 2012)

Maria Miller: An important part of the work that we will do to commemorate the first world war will be to ensure that every community, and indeed every individual, has the opportunity to find their own story, whether they have overseas connections or not. The Heritage Lottery Fund will be important in delivering the finances for that.

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Specialist Disability Employment (10 Jul 2012)

Maria Miller: ...update on progress when the House returns in September. Our approach has been led by disabled people and disabled people’s organisations.

Members who believe in equality for disabled people. By spending these protected Government...

Maria Miller: All recipients of War Pensioners Mobility Supplement or the higher rate mobility component of disability living allowance are entitled to an exemption from Vehicle Excise Duty, whether or not they choose to lease a Motability vehicle.

Maria Miller: Anyone in receipt of the higher rate mobility component of disability living allowance or war pensioners mobility supplement can choose to exchange some or all of their benefit for a Motability vehicle.
