Freedom of Religion and Belief — Motion to Take Note (16 Jul 2015)

the Bishop of Leicester: .... It involves drawing on the spiritual resources of faith to unlock the best in others, to speak on behalf of the voiceless and to create community. When a young Nigerian Christian was murdered in Highfields in Leicester two years ago, there was an immediate retaliatory attack on an entirely innocent Muslim family, killed by a fire bomb on the same day. The tensions were palpable, but were...

Business of the House (8 Jan 2015)

Jon Ashworth: May we have a debate on the role and responsibilities of NHS England in ensuring reasonable access to GP surgeries? I raise the matter because the Highfields medical centre in my constituency was forced to leave its premises, giving patients just a couple of weeks’ notice, and move to premises in Leicester East, the neighbouring constituency. I wrote to NHS England on 18 November, raising...

Business of the House (27 Feb 2014)

Opposition Day — [15th Allotted Day] — Accident and Emergency: Food Banks (18 Dec 2013)

Jon Ashworth: ...great eloquence. Sadly, too many areas of my constituency appear too high up in the various deprivation statistics, and we have had an increase in demand for food banks. The Open Hands food bank in Highfields says it is doubling the number of food parcels it hands out. In the Saffron Lane area, there is an increase in the number of women going to food banks. Primary schools hand out food...

Children’s Centres (Dudley) (11 Dec 2013)

James Morris: ...a very important point. In my constituency, the centre that was proposed for closure at Tenterfields was deemed to be not serving a disadvantaged community. In reality, the people living in the Highfields estate in Halesowen who used that centre would have had to travel two or three miles down the road to other service providers, had the centre closed. The whole of the Dudley proposal was...

Backbench Business: Ugandan Asians (6 Dec 2012)

Keith Vaz: As usual, my hon. Friend is absolutely right, and he has given a name-check to some of the more prominent organisations, although there are many others.

Ila Radia described her situation, as did Jitubhen Radia, who remembered of her arrival: “It was very cold as we had no heating. I...

Jon Ashworth: ...I should declare an interest as a patron of the St Peter’s project in my constituency, where we are trying to raise funds to make much-needed alterations and renovations to St Peter’s church in Highfields. There are already considerable pressures on the listed places of worship grant scheme, which is a very good scheme, but one problem with it is that when a church applies to it there...

Opposition Day — [Un-allotted Day]: Living Standards (30 Nov 2011)

Jon Ashworth: ...Chancellor is not in this together with the young mother on the Saffron Lane estate in Leicester who is seeing her tax credit cut.

Betting Shops: Business, innovation and skills (19 Jul 2011)

Jon Ashworth: ..., of whom 75% were not receiving work-related benefits. As the equality impact assessment showed, many of those people are women. That does not surprise me, because when I visit providers, such as Highfields youth and community centre, I am particularly struck by the number of low-income women, usually from Asian or African—particularly Somali—backgrounds, who are benefiting from ESOL...

Opposition Day — [17th Allotted Day — First Part]: Women (Government Policies) (8 Jun 2011)

Jon Ashworth: ...women, to move into work. Pockets of my constituency too often show up in annual surveys of high deprivation. Poverty and lack of opportunity too often blight lives in St Matthew’s and parts of Highfields, Spinney, Saffron Lane and Eyres Monsell. Many of those will be women. It is a matter of great shame that in Leicester we have one of the highest levels of child poverty in the UK. With...

Care Farming (24 Nov 2008)

Jane Kennedy: ...grown up, I can imagine that many of them would have benefited from the kinds of work that care farms do.
