Business of the House (22 Nov 2012)

Lucy Powell: May I ask the Leader of the House for an urgent statement or debate on the privatisation of Greater Manchester ambulance service? As he may know, the contract to run part of this important service was recently awarded to Arriva—yes, that is the bus and train company—despite the NHS bid winning on quality and service. Arriva was given the contract on cost alone. Patients and carers across...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (3 Dec 2012)

Lucy Powell: Has the Secretary of State read the Pearson report, published last week and written by the Economist Intelligence Unit, which shows that Britain has the sixth best education system in the world and the second best in Europe? Does he agree that that shows great advancement under 13 years of the previous Labour Government and following many years of hard work from our teaching profession, and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Autumn Statement (5 Dec 2012)

Lucy Powell: Is this Chancellor not presiding over a series of false economies? There is a long list, but let me draw his attention to one of them. Recent analysis has shown that the level of his draconian and unfair cuts to Manchester’s local government budget is the same as the increase to the benefits bill in Manchester since the election. Would it not be better if he invested in our future rather...

Business of the House: West Coast Rail Franchise (6 Dec 2012)

Lucy Powell: It is now clear what a complete shambles this whole affair has been and how much time and money has been lost. Fast, frequent and reliable trains are critical to the Greater Manchester economy, but with nearly three years’ delay until the new franchise comes on track, vital investment decisions will put the reliability and speed of this service at risk, which our economy can ill afford. How...

Public Bill Committee: Groceries Code Adjudicator Bill [Lords]: Schedule 1 - The Adjudicator (11 Dec 2012)

Lucy Powell: Does the Minister agree that the issue is not just the remit of the role in terms of breadth and so on, but the nature of the interests that the adjudicator will come up against? Those will be very powerful vested interests. We are talking about supermarkets. Those interests are hugely powerful, much more powerful than any one individual whom we here could give powers to, and therefore it is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Dec 2012)

Lucy Powell: In opposition, the right hon. Gentleman said that he wanted his Government to be the most family-friendly Government this country had ever seen, so why is he cutting maternity pay for working mothers?

Opposition Day — [12th Allotted Day]: NHS Funding (12 Dec 2012)

Lucy Powell: Even the north-west regional centre for cancer treatment, the Christie hospital, recently announced that 213 posts will go. I do not know how it stacks up with the Secretary of State’s claim that the NHS budget is going up, when we see cancer patients getting a reduced service at the Christie hospital.

Public Bill Committee: Groceries Code Adjudicator Bill [Lords]: Clause 9 - Investigations: enforcement using financial penalties (13 Dec 2012)

Lucy Powell: May I ask the Minister for clarification about what happens to the fines once they are received? I understand that they will go into a central pot. How will the supplier get compensation should the situation cause a financial loss? How might that come about?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (9 Jan 2013)

Lucy Powell: Will the Prime Minister confirm that single mum Maggie from my constituency, who works all the hours she can in Tesco but does not earn enough to gain from the new tax allowances, will, after his changes to tax credits and universal credit, be a staggering £1,255 a year worse off?

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Public Disorder (23 Jan 2013)

Lucy Powell: What assessment she has made of the recent public disorder in Northern Ireland; and if she will make a statement.

Opposition Day — [15th Allotted Day]: Private Rented Sector (23 Jan 2013)

Lucy Powell: I very much welcome this debate. The important issues that are being raised are extremely relevant to my constituency, which has large numbers of people living in the private rented sector. It also has a growing number of residents living in managed blocks, particularly in the city centre. I have held public meetings and conducted resident surveys on these important issues, and I already have...

Business of the House (24 Jan 2013)

Lucy Powell: The Leader of the House may be aware of the tragic case of my constituent, the Indian student Souvik Pal, who went missing on new year’s eve in Manchester, and whose body was tragically found this week. The right hon. Gentleman may or may not also be aware of the huge publicity that this case has received in India. Taken together with the callous and brutal murder of Anuj Bidve in...

Bill Presented — Marriage (Same Sex Couples): Backbench Business — Voting Age (24 Jan 2013)

Lucy Powell: I fully support the motion and hope to vote on it in the Division. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that the most offensive argument against this motion is that only some—not all—16 to 18-year-olds would want to vote in elections, and that that holds true for all ages and demographics across the country? I find that the most offensive of all the arguments, and I know that all 16, 17 and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: High Speed Rail (28 Jan 2013)

Lucy Powell: On behalf of Manchester, I strongly welcome the proposals that the Secretary of State has laid before Parliament today, not, as others have said, as a panacea to stop the north-south divide, but to build on 15 years of urban renaissance started by the Labour council and Labour Government. The redevelopment opportunities presented in my constituency in and around Manchester Piccadilly station...
