Business of the House (14 Sep 2017)

Harriet Harman: I ask the Leader of the House to look at yesterday’s Westminster Hall debate on the representation of women. It was led by a truly excellent speech from the hon. Member for Eastleigh (Mims Davies), which elicited a wide consensus across the parties. There are more women in the House than ever before, and that is not just welcome; it is a democratic imperative. There are more babies...

Parliamentary Candidates: Barriers for Women (13 Sep 2017)

Anne Milton: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Roger, and to congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Eastleigh (Mims Davies) on securing the debate. I was tempted to say “Stop squabbling,” and it is very likely that I will forget the speech I have in front of me: my one point is that if we want to change things, we have to take down the party political barriers. There...

16-to-19 Education Funding — [David Hanson in the Chair] (7 Sep 2017)

Anne Milton: ...Member for Waveney (Peter Aldous) spoke about the excellence of his local results and good local initiatives, but rightly pointed out the issues with revenue. He is right that colleges are a great British success. My hon. Friend the Member for Eastleigh (Mims Davies) mentioned female participation in science, technology, engineering and maths subjects and, as Minister for Women, I...

BBC Transparency — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (7 Sep 2017)

Matthew Hancock: more transparent and hold it to account. That does not weaken the organisation; it improves an organisation, because where there is a problem, sunlight is the best disinfectant. My hon. Friend the Member for Eastleigh (Mims Davies) asked powerfully what further will happen on transparency. Mandatory gender pay gap reporting for the BBC, as well as for other organisations, is due by...

Fox-Sky Merger (20 Jul 2017)

Karen Bradley: ...into the most incredible summer of sport for Britain and British athletes—and Roger Federer. I think he is almost an honorary Brit at this stage. I agree with my hon. Friend the Member for Eastleigh (Mims Davies); I think Wimbledon is one of the places that have equal pay for men and women. I want to see gender disparity removed from all employers, and I was as surprised as she was...

Bills Presented: Tuition Fees (19 Jul 2017)

Mims Davies: Is it not true that Labour Members are now feigning confusion over parliamentary process on this, having previously deliberately created their own confusion? The reality on the doorsteps across Eastleigh was that Labour’s promise to deal with tuition fees included the possibility of covering bank overdrafts. Does the Minister agree that this is an empty promise from a mathematically...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Infrastructure: Government Investment (18 Jul 2017)

Mims Davies: ...of my constituents. I welcome road funding through the national productivity investment fund. Will Ministers meet me to discuss the delivery of those projects, which will affect my constituency in Eastleigh?

Bill Presented: Scheduling of Parliamentary Business (17 Jul 2017)

Chris Bryant: ...Opposition days and days for private Members’ Bills and Back-bench business. Any ordinary member of the public would say that that is what everybody would genuinely expect. The hon. Members for Eastleigh (Mims Davies) and for Rochester and Strood (Kelly Tolhurst) said that all this stuff does not really matter and that it is not about democracy. I would ask them just to remember that...

Contaminated Blood (11 Jul 2017)

Mims Davies: ..., and the Government are ready to tackle this injustice. I am delighted that that is being done in the name of the victims and their families, who did nothing to bring this on themselves. After I became the MP for Eastleigh in May 2015, I met one of my constituents from Bishopstoke, Gary Webster, who has been left coping with HIV, hepatitis C and possibly variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease...

Business of the House (6 Jul 2017)

Mims Davies: Hamble Lane, Eastleigh town centre and the Botley Centre on Botley high street leave constant queues and jams, and the resultant air pollution remains a key concern for my constituents, and particularly for parents of children with asthma. Will the Leader of the House kindly find Government time for a debate on air pollution so that we can talk about and really tackle this growing public...

Adult Social Care Funding (6 Jul 2017)

Mims Davies: Adult social care funding has been raised with me across Eastleigh. Delayed discharge is also being prioritised by the clinical commissioning group, but Eastleigh’s Lib Dems on Hampshire County Council chose back in February not to support a further £27 million for the county’s social care budget. Will the Minister highlight he fact that some parties talk about action but...

Women and Equalities: Topical Questions (6 Jul 2017)

Mims Davies: I recently had the pleasure of speaking at the Women’s Leadership Network conference, alongside the principal of Eastleigh College. Confidence is key in getting women back to work, particularly returners, or climbing up the ladder. What are the Government doing to encourage returneeships so that we can support what the Prime Minister has said?

Road Infrastructure — [Mrs Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (5 Jul 2017)

Alan Brown: ...which can give us a tour through constituencies and a reminder of the beautiful villages that exist. The hon. Member for Congleton (Fiona Bruce) again highlighted a bypass, while the final contribution, from the hon. Member for Eastleigh (Mims Davies), again highlighted the lack of joined-up thinking between Highways England and local councils, which needs to be resolved. I genuinely...

21ST Century Fox/Sky Merger (29 Jun 2017)

Peter Bone: occurred to me that we are going into recess shortly after that date. Will she assure us that we will not get a final decision while the House is not sitting? As my hon. Friend the Member for Eastleigh (Mims Davies) said, the subject of media bias came up a lot on the doorstep, but I am afraid that, for me, it was media bias by the BBC, which my constituents suggested should be called...

Attorney General: Leaving the EU: Human Rights (29 Jun 2017)

Mims Davies: Human rights and the scaremongering around them came up time and again on the doorsteps of Eastleigh during the election campaign. Does the Minister agree that it is simply scaremongering and that leaving the EU will not change our human rights?

Members Sworn (14 Jun 2017)

John Bercow: ...and Cheam Kevin Paul Hollinrake, Thirsk and Malton Craig Paul Tracey, North Warwickshire Anne-Marie Belinda Trevelyan, Berwick-upon-Tweed Kelly Jane Tolhurst, Rochester and Strood Miriam Jane Alice Davies, Eastleigh Caroline Lucas, Brighton, Pavilion Mark Julian Francis Pawsey, Rugby David Thomas Charles Davies, Monmouth Geoffrey Robert Clifton-Brown, The Cotswolds Marcus John Hudson Fysh,...

Exiting the European Union: Tourism (27 Apr 2017)

Mims Davies: Southampton airport in my Eastleigh constituency provides regular flights to Amsterdam and therefore more than 55 African nations, driving, among other things, bilateral trade. Will the Minister outline what his Department is doing to promote similar initiatives to bring benefits to the UK economy ready for leaving the EU?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (24 Apr 2017)

Mims Davies: The leader of the Conservative group in Eastleigh has questioned the methodology behind the plan for an extra 10,000 homes, which could threaten 400-year-old ancient woodland. Without a local plan, and when ancient woodland is under threat, how can housing numbers be verified?

Parish Council Governance (Principles of Public Life) (18 Apr 2017)

Mims Davies: ...agree the first stages of a neighbourhood plan—good parishes can make a real difference, with committed people coming together in the best interests of their area. I also fully support those calling for Eastleigh to have a town council to give it a separate voice in the face of hostile development through Eastleigh Borough Council’s missing local plan. I completely support the...

National Spitfire Project — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (28 Mar 2017)

Peter Dowd: ...made reference to 43 Fighter Squadron commemorating 100 years at Stirling castle. There is no better way to tell the story of the Spitfire than by looking at the role of those people in that. The hon. Member for Eastleigh (Mims Davies) joined us all in supporting this proposal. My hon. Friend the Member for Southampton, Test (Dr Whitehead) asked clearly and unambiguously for the money...
