Jess Phillips: Does the hon. and learned Gentleman recognise that positive discrimination has existed in this country since the beginning of time immemorial—for white men?
Jess Phillips: Considering the thousands of victims of trafficking who have gone through the NRM, will the Home Secretary tell the House how many human trafficking-related convictions there were in the last 12 months? How does that figure fit with the Prime Minister’s assertion that we are tackling those who commit these crimes?
That Ruth Cadbury, Maria Caulfield, Jo Churchill, Angela Crawley, Mims Davies, Mrs Flick Drummond, Ben Howlett, Jess Phillips, Tulip Siddiq and Cat Smith be members of the Women and Equalities Committee.—(Bill Wiggin, on behalf of the Committee of Selection.)
Jess Phillips: I would like the hon. Gentleman to recognise that quite a lot of Opposition Members lived on tax credits and it is insulting to say that we have no ambition. I am sure he will recognise that we do.
Jess Phillips: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what effect reductions in funding for rail infrastructure will have on the Access for All work at Stechford Station.
Jess Phillips: What discussions he has had with his counterparts in EU member states and others on (a) resettlement of Syrian refuges and (b) the UN’s response to the Syrian refugee situation.
That Bob Blackman, Mr Peter Bone, Mr Philip Hollobone, Gavin Newlands, Mr David Nuttall and Jess Phillips be members of the Backbench Business Committee.
Jess Phillips: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that that is absolutely not the case with crimes such as domestic and sexual violence?
Jess Phillips: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, how many and what proportion of personal independence payment claimants have (a) appealed and (b) successfully appealed a negative decision on a personal independence payment application.
Jess Phillips: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what estimate he has made of the cost to the public purse of a personal independence payment claimant appealing a negative decision on an application.
Jess Phillips: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what progress her Department is making towards developing a national outcomes framework for the commissioning of children's services and special educational needs provision.
Jess Phillips: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what assessment she has made of the implications for her policies of the finding of the National Audit Office report Care leavers' transitions to adulthood, published 17 July 2015, that the Care Leavers' Strategy has limited implementation capability.
Jess Phillips: Will any excess charge that you charge the tenant—in almost all supported accommodation an excess is usually charged directly from the organisation to the tenant—have to increase, thus increasing the cost for vulnerable people?
Jess Phillips: You’re doing great!
Jess Phillips: I’m 33 and I can’t hear it.

Jess Phillips: I beg to move amendment 99, in clause 2, page 2, line 5, at end insert “and that 20,000 of these apprenticeships are taken up by children and young persons leaving care.”
Jess Phillips: Yes, I do; I just want to point out that people who are on tax credits are in work. They are taxpayers, and they are therefore paying that bill. The Minister should not pitch two sets of people against each other. He should recognise that people who get tax credits work.
