Offences Against the Person Act 1861 (5 Jun 2018)

Angela Eagle: The right hon. Lady is making a powerful case for change. What does she now believe to be the best course for her Government to take to facilitate a decision in this area?

Personal Independence Payments (4 Jun 2018)

Angela Eagle: But the Secretary of State has been dragged to the House by an urgent question to talk about her decision not to pursue the appeal in these cases concerning activity 3 of the daily living component. She has very coyly failed completely to answer the question of how many people her decision affects. We know that 165 million people receive the component—[Interruption.] I mean 1.65...

Tower Block Cladding (21 May 2018)

Angela Eagle: Does the Secretary of State accept that there is a real issue of enforcement here and that self-regulation, especially in competitive industries such as construction, simply will not work? I suspect that that is what Dame Judith Hackitt was getting at in her report. Given austerity cuts, can he assure the House that enforcement will be strengthened, so that as the regulations are changed,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (21 May 2018)

Angela Eagle: My constituent of working age suffered two strokes and has now been diagnosed as suffering from vascular dementia. He has been found to be fit for work, even though he has major problems with his short-term memory. He will have to appeal the decision and faces a wait of up to 30 weeks before he gets any kind of hearing or has his benefit restored. How can this possibly be a system that is...

Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [Lords]: Periodic reports on exercise of power to make regulations under section 1 (1 May 2018)

Angela Eagle: My hon. Friend is making an extremely good speech. Does she agree that the time for secrecy in all these jurisdictions is now over? We need transparency so that we can minimise the abuse—whether tax evasion, tax avoidance, or the laundering of criminal money—that is becoming more and more of a feature in these jurisdictions. Does my hon. Friend agree that once we have our own...

Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [Lords]: Periodic reports on exercise of power to make regulations under section 1 (1 May 2018)

Angela Eagle: I thank the right hon. Gentleman for his generosity in giving way. Does he agree that, although this is progress, it will be effective only if we have the light of transparency and these registers are available publicly, and not just to law enforcement authorities?

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Affordable Housing (30 Apr 2018)

Angela Eagle: I welcome the right hon. Gentleman to his place. Does his Department have any targets for the number of affordable houses? Will he promise to take a look at the definition of affordable, which is at far too high a price under this Government?

Windrush (23 Apr 2018)

Angela Eagle: It is astonishing that, faced with one of the largest scandals we have seen in the way in which a specific group of British citizens have been treated by the Home Secretary’s Department, she has not seen fit to take proper responsibility and resign. Will she tell us, in the light of her failure to resign, what on earth is her concept of ministerial responsibility?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Voter ID Pilots (23 Apr 2018)

Angela Eagle: The Minister is making a pretty poor job of defending the indefensible. Is it not the case that what she is setting out today is not only a huge hammer to crack a nut but actually, in disguise, a blatant attempt at voter suppression, by making it very difficult indeed for those who already have difficulties to vote? Many of those people come to visit me in my advice surgery because they...

Gender Pay Gap (18 Apr 2018)

Angela Eagle: It is now over 40 years since a heroine of mine, Barbara Castle, introduced the Equal Pay Act. She did so with great support from the labour and trade union movement, because the principle that women should be paid the same for doing the same job as men was believed then. Forty years later, we are really no nearer to achieving that pay equality. Although it is important that we have seen...

Gender Pay Gap (18 Apr 2018)

Angela Eagle: It’s the law.

EU Referendum: Electoral Law (27 Mar 2018)

Angela Eagle: Does my right hon. Friend share my astonishment that it took the Information Commissioner so long to get a warrant to search Cambridge Analytica’s premises, given that Facebook got in there in a minute and a half?

European Council (26 Mar 2018)

Angela Eagle: Given that the Prime Minister’s political secretary, Stephen Parkinson, is the person responsible for outing the Vote Leave whistleblower, using No. 10 paper and documents, what is she going to do? Prime Minister, you should sack him!

Vauxhall Factory, Ellesmere Port (20 Mar 2018)

Angela Eagle: I thank the Minister for giving way. All of us who have an interest in this issue welcome his interest in the automotive plant, but we want a little more from him than that, since he is the Minister. Can he give us an answer on the issue of rate relief? Will the entire area be given the special status that my hon. Friend the Member for Ellesmere Port and Neston (Justin Madders) asked for?

Vauxhall Factory, Ellesmere Port (20 Mar 2018)

Angela Eagle: Just say yes now; it does not take seven minutes to say yes.

Vauxhall Factory, Ellesmere Port (20 Mar 2018)

Angela Eagle: Mr Rosindell—

Vauxhall Factory, Ellesmere Port (20 Mar 2018)

Angela Eagle: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this important debate. Does he recognise that my constituency contains Vauxhall workers as well? Their economic future is reliant on the Government’s decisions in the Brexit negotiations, particularly given that they have decided to leave the single market, which puts those jobs at risk.

Money Laundering (19 Mar 2018)

Angela Eagle: My right hon. Friend the Member for Barking (Dame Margaret Hodge) asked an extremely important question, to which she did not get an answer from the Minister. I wonder if we can try again. What changes are the Government planning to make to the due diligence for the golden visa, which establishes that someone must have £2 million they are investing in the UK before they get access to...

Spring Statement (13 Mar 2018)

Angela Eagle: The Chancellor has been very upbeat today, but why is he so upbeat when the growth figures show that we have gone from being near the top of the G7 and the G20 growth lists to the bottom of both?
