Penny Mordaunt: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer by what means the Governor of the Bank of England will be accountable as Chairman of the (a) Financial Policy Committee, (b) Monetary Policy Committee and (c) Prudential Regulation Authority; and if he will make a statement.
Penny Mordaunt: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this debate. Does she think that when we are considering Dilnot and the future funding of care, we need to look not just at the baseline and at our well-recognised ageing population, but at the unmet need to which she has just referred? In Portsmouth, for example, which is a fairly compact city, we have 1,000 people with dementia who have no access to...
Penny Mordaunt: The Prime Minister spoke of the significant number of young people who have no moral compass and no sense of community. On Monday I visited one of the pilot sites of the national citizenship programme and was impressed with what I saw. May I ask that when those pilots are audited and reviewed, and recommendations are made for the programme proper, the events of the past few days are taken...
Penny Mordaunt: In response to the Prime Minister’s call for party leaders to join him in publishing their dealings with the media, the Leader of the Opposition heckled “No, you’re the Prime Minister”. Does my right hon. Friend agree that this situation would be greatly helped if those who aspired to be the Prime Minister behaved like one?
Penny Mordaunt: This House, the media and the whole country have been rightly focused on this issue, but is the Prime Minister aware that aid agencies are reporting that as a result of that focus there has been a lack of public awareness of the humanitarian crisis in Somalia, and as a consequence lower donations to relief funds? Can the Prime Minister assure me and the House that he will spend his time...
Penny Mordaunt: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport how much was (a) invested in and (b) received as revenue from each profitable film that was (i) wholly and (ii) partly funded by the UK Film Council in each of the last five years.
Penny Mordaunt: I welcome today’s statement, especially the announcement on capital funding, and ask the Secretary of State to keep the very patient King Richard school, and other schools in Portsmouth, at the forefront of his mind as the process develops. I ask him to go further on funding reform to ensure that as well as fairness, we have more flexibility in how we spend per pupil funds in the...
Penny Mordaunt: Parliamentary questions I have tabled show that there is little understanding in other Government Departments of the contribution that defence, particularly the Royal Navy, makes to fuel security, communications and trade. As my right hon. Friend works to put the defence budget and our defence capabilities on a sustainable footing, will he also make the case that our economic recovery is...
...and (v) to adjourn from place to place within the United Kingdom; That Mr Ben Bradshaw, Mr Robert Buckland, Philip Davies, George Eustice, Paul Farrelly, Martin Horwood, Eric Joyce, Mr Elfyn Llwyd, Penny Mordaunt, Yasmin Qureshi, Ms Gisela Stuart, Mr John Whittingdale and Nadhim Zahawi be members of the Committee.—(James Duddridge.)
Penny Mordaunt: There is an assumption that, once the News of the World ceases to trade, the victims of phone hacking will still have legal redress and that there will be a compensation fund for them. I doubt that that is the case, however. Is that something that the Committee could look at?
Penny Mordaunt: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government when his Department will publish the forthcoming Housing Strategy; and what plans he has to stimulate the development of retirement housing of each tenure.
Penny Mordaunt: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what consideration he has given to Frontier Economic's findings on Social Return on Investment that investment in the WRVS services in preventive care for older people saves money for the NHS and local authorities; and if he will make a statement.
Penny Mordaunt: To ask the Deputy Prime Minister for what reasons he considers that a referendum on reform of the House of Lords is not necessary; and if he will make a statement.
Penny Mordaunt: What recent discussions he has had with constitutional historians and experts on House of Lords reform; and if he will make a statement.
Penny Mordaunt: If he will make a statement on his departmental responsibilities.
Penny Mordaunt: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs whether she has had discussions with (a) Ministers and (b) officials in the Ministry of Defence on potential implications for safety of the home fishing fleet of reductions in expenditure on the Royal Navy; and if she will make a statement.
Penny Mordaunt: To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change whether he has had discussions with (a) Ministers and (b) officials in the Ministry of Defence on potential consequences for energy security of reductions in expenditure on defence; and if he will make a statement.
Penny Mordaunt: To ask the Minister for Women and Equalities what recent discussions she has had with her ministerial colleagues on changes to the state pension age for (a) men and (b) women; and if she will make a statement.
Chuka Umunna: .... Friend the Member for Oxford East (Mr Smith) thought that the application of the criteria determining where the holiday would apply was rather broad brush. The hon. Member for Portsmouth North (Penny Mordaunt), who is no longer in her place, mentioned the low take-up of the benefit: we were told that 400,000 businesses would benefit but it appears to be far fewer. Can the Minister tell...
Penny Mordaunt: To ask the Secretary of State for International Development how much (a) direct and (b) indirect aid the Government have given to Argentina in each year since 1982; and if he will make a statement.
