Opel/Vauxhall: Sale to Psa Group (6 Mar 2017)

Angela Eagle: I have constituents who work in the Ellesmere Port plant and many others are reliant for their employment on local supply chains, so this is causing huge worry in the area. What can the Secretary of State say to reassure my constituents about the future, particularly given that our employment laws make it easier to sack workers in the UK compared with those who work in France and Germany,...

PRAYERS - [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] : Liverpool City Region (Poverty) — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (1 Mar 2017)

Angela Eagle: My hon. Friend is making a powerful speech. Will she attempt to explain what the Government’s thinking might be, given the disparity in poverty between certain areas that she has just explained? In the Wirral, we have lost 57% of local authority funding, Liverpool has lost 58%, and yet there are some areas, normally represented by Conservative MPs, that have seen nowhere near those...

PRAYERS - [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] : Liverpool City Region (Poverty) — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (1 Mar 2017)

Angela Eagle: Does my hon. Friend realise that there is also a similar pattern in the Wirral? I suspect the numbers are not quite as high, but the reasons for the existence, running and use of food banks on the Wirral are similar. There are now seven food banks in Wallasey, and according to the Trussell Trust, benefit sanctions, the inadequacy of benefits and delays in paying benefits are why almost half...

PRAYERS - [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] : Liverpool City Region (Poverty) — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (1 Mar 2017)

Angela Eagle: Does my hon. Friend accept that the pattern is particularly stark in the Wirral? If a line is drawn down the M53, the difference in life expectancy between the west side and the poorest parts of the east side is 10 years.

PRAYERS - [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] : Liverpool City Region (Poverty) — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (1 Mar 2017)

Angela Eagle: In the Wirral, before the previous Labour Government took office, 65% of social housing was below the acceptable standard. Owing to the money that was invested under that Labour Government, when we left office less than 5% of the social stock was below the acceptable standard. Does my hon. Friend recognise how that helped to deal with the problems of poverty, and health related ones in...

Personal Independence Payments (28 Feb 2017)

Angela Eagle: If everything is working so well, why are my advice surgeries full of people who have been waiting for their PIP assessments for a very long time? Long-term disabled people are being denied them and being caused massive amounts of distress by the process. They feel utter despair at having to have anything to do with it.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (28 Feb 2017)

Angela Eagle: Given the shameful neglect of social care spending in the autumn statement and straws in the wind about how that is going to be put right in the Budget, will the Chancellor take account of the fact that authorities such as ours in Wirral are having to deal with £45 million-worth of pressure due to the number of our older people who are needing help, and that a 3% increase in council tax...

Vauxhall/Opel: Proposed Takeover (20 Feb 2017)

Angela Eagle: I commend the Secretary of State for his fast action in meeting all the parties. I represent people who work in the Ellesmere Port factory. We local MPs are all justifiably proud of the work that has been done there to keep the production process as one of the most efficient in the world. We bow to no one in the world when it comes to efficiency and productivity at the Ellesmere Port plant....

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: (20 Feb 2017)

Angela Eagle: Will the Minister say a little more about how ESA and PIP assessments for those with mental illnesses work? I have six cases where mandatory reconsideration letters are identical to the letters providing the original decision. I have four cases—she knows of one of them because she has written to me about it—where the wrong information, about other people, has been cut and pasted...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Conduct of negotiations (8 Feb 2017)

Angela Eagle: Does my hon. Friend agree that trying to get exactly the same access to the single market without paying any of the costs is like disappearing down the rabbit hole into Alice’s Wonderland? It is important that we have an assessment of what World Trade Organisation rules would cost, if we had to fall back on them.

Prime Minister: Engagements (8 Feb 2017)

Angela Eagle: Last week, the right hon. and learned Member for Rushcliffe (Mr Clarke) pointed out that the Prime Minister’s aspiration to achieve barrier-free, tariff-free trade with the single market, getting all the benefits but paying none of the costs, was akin to disappearing down the rabbit hole to Wonderland. I think that the Prime Minister makes a very interesting choice for Alice, but if...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Impact assessments (7 Feb 2017)

Angela Eagle: What if actually everyone in the House—whether they are Brexiteers or remainers—wants the best deal for the country, and in order to make good decisions and have a good debate, they want to know what analysis the Government are doing of the implications of making particular decisions? Surely that, and not delay, is what this is about.

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Impact assessments (7 Feb 2017)

Angela Eagle: Does my hon. Friend agree that that kind of cynical campaigning gives politics and politicians a really bad name? The people who saw the pledge on that big red bus now expect this Government to deliver on that pledge.

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Impact assessments (7 Feb 2017)

Angela Eagle: Does my hon. Friend agree that if we had official Treasury impact assessments, rather than those done by people who are guessing, we would be able to have a proper debate about the kind of Brexit that is best for our country in difficult and rapidly changing times?

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Parliamentary approval for agreements with the Union (7 Feb 2017)

Angela Eagle: On a point of order, Ms Engel. Surely new clause 1 is in order; otherwise, we would not be debating it.

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Parliamentary approval for agreements with the Union (7 Feb 2017)

Angela Eagle: Does my hon. Friend agree that many of the other 27 countries will be going to their Parliaments for approval with respect to their approach to these negotiations, so that it would surely strengthen our Government’s hands if they involved themselves in a process that could through this Parliament maximise the support coming on all sides for our Government’s approach? Why is that...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Parliamentary approval for agreements with the Union (7 Feb 2017)

Angela Eagle: I agree with the right hon. Gentleman about a manuscript amendment—it would make things a lot clearer for all of us. Does he agree that the announcement that we may have a Hobson’s choice at the end of the process means that there will not really be a proper choice?

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Parliamentary approval for agreements with the Union (7 Feb 2017)

Angela Eagle: My hon. and learned Friend is right to point out that progress has been made, but does he agree that to make a vote at the end of the process meaningful, we have to have meaningful scrutiny as the process goes on, and as a Parliament we have to have the chance to say to the Government, “You must go back and try to do better”? Having an all-or-nothing vote at the end, when all the...

Informal European Council: Parliamentary oversight of negotiations (6 Feb 2017)

Angela Eagle: Does the right hon. Gentleman not think that a unilateral declaration would undo some of the damage that was done by the “list of foreign workers” stuff that came out of the Tory conference in Birmingham? That shocked a lot of our European partners and hardened their views against us. Surely, a unilateral declaration might help.

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill (31 Jan 2017)

Angela Eagle: Will my hon. Friend explain to the House precisely how important objective 1 was to the regeneration of Liverpool in those dark times?
