Penny Mordaunt: Following the safeguarding issues exposed through the case of Oxfam in Haiti, I am updating the House on three key areas of work DFID has undertaken. 1. Statements of assurance from UK charities and follow up on cases All UK charities that I wrote to on 12 February have replied and provided me with a clear statement of their assurance on their organisations’ safeguarding environment...

Cambridge Analytica: Data Privacy (19 Mar 2018)

Stephen Kinnock: ...by Cambridge Analytica as “our most potent weapon” in the referendum. They are calculated to be worth in the region of hundreds of thousands of pounds. They were a donation-in-kind, not a penny of which was reported to the Electoral Commission. I wrote to the Electoral Commission about this last year, and I am pleased to say that it has launched an investigation. Does the...

Orkambi and Cystic Fibrosis — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (19 Mar 2018)

Alan Mak: My constituency, and that of my right hon. Friend the Member for Portsmouth North (Penny Mordaunt), were among the top three constituencies for people signing the petition. Will my hon. Friend join me in calling on the Minister to get Vertex, the NHS and NICE to continue their negotiations, because time is of the essence?

Written Answers — Department for International Development: Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS: Sexual Harassment (19 Mar 2018)

Penny Mordaunt: I have not met with officials from Code Blue but I have been briefed by DFID officials on Code Blue’s concerns about the allegations of sexual harassment at UNAIDS. My officials met with Code Blue on 28 February to discuss this issue and informed them of the measures the UK is taking to raise safeguarding standards with all our partners, including UNAIDS, and that tackling harassment...

Written Answers — Department for International Development: Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS: Sexual Harassment (19 Mar 2018)

Penny Mordaunt: I have been firm in my demand that agencies show leadership and take action alongside the UK to improve reporting mechanisms for sexual exploitation and abuse, and have requested information on the measures that they have in place and assurance that these are being effectively implemented. I will assess the evidence that they provide to determine what action needs to be taken. DFID is...

Unpaid Trial Work Periods (Prohibition) Bill (16 Mar 2018)

Alan Whitehead: ...who was on shift did not even speak to him when he was in! He was left in the bar with no direction and when he tried to help the others he was told to get back behind the bar! He wasn’t paid a penny for his time. The same restaurant had already done the same thing to a friend of mine’s son except it was for a kitchen porter and he did 4 hours, no pay and again at end of his...

Building Safety (15 Mar 2018)

Helen Hayes: ...injustices at the heart of the UK housing system, and every revelation from the investigation makes that picture starker and clearer. So far, the Government have not made available a single penny of new Government money for essential works to respond to and mitigate the risks revealed as a consequence of Grenfell. Unless the Government do so, they are simply meting out further injustice to...

Economy: Spring Statement - Motion to Take Note (15 Mar 2018)

Baroness Kramer: ...income, but debt is twice its 2008 levels. Realistically, this is the time when we absolutely have to look at raising taxes. At the very least, we need to reverse the cuts since 2015 in corporation tax—which surely could have been left at 20%; I do not believe a penny below that has encouraged any company to put more money into any investment—and reverse the cuts in capital...

Revised Draft Airports National Policy Statement - Motion to Take Note (15 Mar 2018)

Baroness Kramer: ...trapping the local population. Transport for London has estimated that providing surface transport to support a third runway would cost £18 million, of which Heathrow has said it would pay £1 million, with the rest to fall on the taxpayer. That includes not a penny for resolving the level crossing problem. No engineer has found any solution to that, so we are talking about the...

Business of the House (15 Mar 2018)

Andrea Leadsom: ...the role of cash and digital payments. One element of that was whether the denominational mix of coins meets the public need. From the early reaction, it looks as if it does. It is safe to say that the penny has dropped. We have considered change, but we know that we like change, so we think we will probably keep change and have no change.

Written Answers — Department for International Development: Department for International Development: Non-governmental Organisations (15 Mar 2018)

Penny Mordaunt: At the Safeguarding Summit on 5 March, I announced that DFID will put in place new, enhanced and specific safeguarding standards within our due diligence process for all non-governmental organisations. This will include an assessment of codes of conduct, how organisations identify and respond to incidents, and how risk management places safeguarding and beneficiaries at its core. New funds to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (14 Mar 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...to accept that the NHS will not meet its key constitutional standards... If we want to provide quality of care, we need the right long term financial settlement.” The NHS is clearly in crisis, so why was there not a penny extra for it in the yesterday’s statement by the Chancellor?

Northern Ireland Finances - Statement (13 Mar 2018)

Baroness Blood: ...make the decision about where that money will go? Last year, in James Brokenshire’s Statement, £50 million of the confidence and supply money was given to mental health. To this day, not one penny of that £50 million has been spent, simply because there is no local Minister to sign it off. Will we be tied by the same regulations, for instance around the infrastructure...

Public Bill Committee: Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill: Cap on standard variable and default rates (13 Mar 2018)

Claire Perry: ...is extremely important that we continue to look at this group. We heard today that some of those we might consider most vulnerable are also the most assiduous switchers, because they simply do not have a penny to spare. I guess the issue I have, which is why we are here, is that we do not want people to have to invest the time in shopping around to feel that they are always getting the...

Spring Statement (13 Mar 2018)

Philip Hammond: ...abolished the economic cycle, because we want to see taxpayers’ money funding our schools and hospitals, not wasted on debt interest, and because we want to give the next generation a fair chance. But I do not agree with those who argue that every available penny must be used to reduce the deficit; nor do I agree with the fiscal fantasists opposite who argue that every penny should...
