Un Vote on the Independent Expert for the LGBT Community (8 Nov 2016)

Angela Eagle: Does the Minister agree that LGBT rights are human rights and that, as such, they are indivisible from any of the other human rights that we are so proud that the UN tries to enforce? Will he accept from me the very best wishes of the LGBT community in the battle he now leads within the UN? If this human rights advocate is voted against and taken away from the UN, that will be a huge setback...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Innovation and Research: Science (8 Nov 2016)

Angela Eagle: So advanced is UK innovation and scientific knowledge that, prior to the referendum, this country made £3.5 billion more in grants for science and innovation than it put into EU funds. That is now all up in the air, and there is despair in some areas of UK science about the disentanglement that Brexit will cause and the threats to integrated innovation and science budgets. What can the...

NHS Funding (31 Oct 2016)

Angela Eagle: My constituents who are watching these exchanges will think that the Secretary of State is living in a parallel universe. The sustainability and transformation programme in Merseyside is reputed to be tackling a £1 billion deficit. The way in which it has decided to tackle it in Wirral, in my area, is to draw up plans to close Clatterbridge, our cancer hospital, to close Arrowe Park, our...

NHS Funding (31 Oct 2016)

Angela Eagle: I didn’t say that.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: International Students (31 Oct 2016)

Angela Eagle: Members of all parties agree that international students coming here to study is a good thing. Therefore, will the Home Secretary say something about how welcome they feel when hate crimes against black, Asian and minority ethnic people went up 41% in the month after Brexit? Many people over here as students report that when they are seen on the streets of our country, they are being told to...

European Council (24 Oct 2016)

Angela Eagle: The Prime Minister is being uncharacteristically coy about the terms of the negotiation to leave the European Union, yet we know that once the papers are given to the Commission they will be shared with the European Parliament. Will she not now undertake to share those papers with this Parliament—the sovereign Parliament—so that we can have a proper opportunity to look at the...

Concentrix: Tax Credit Claimants — [Mr David Nuttall in the Chair] (18 Oct 2016)

Angela Eagle: Where did the information, particularly on cohabitation, come from? So many of our constituents have been accused of cohabiting with the previous tenant of their usually rented property. Were the data HMRC-matched or did Concentrix do it all on its own?

Concentrix: Tax Credit Claimants — [Mr David Nuttall in the Chair] (18 Oct 2016)

Angela Eagle: Julie Molyneux, a constituent of mine, was accused of working for only 15 hours, when she had worked 16.5. She phoned HMRC and was told to phone Concentrix. She phoned Concentrix and was told to phone HMRC. She went round and round in circles. Her tax credits were stopped for eight weeks and she was forced to live on £63 a week, with two children to look after, one of whom is disabled....

Concentrix: Tax Credit Claimants — [Mr David Nuttall in the Chair] (18 Oct 2016)

Angela Eagle: Will my right hon. Friend give way?

Concentrix: Tax Credit Claimants — [Mr David Nuttall in the Chair] (18 Oct 2016)

Angela Eagle: My right hon. Friend is being extraordinarily generous. I have had many cases in which precisely that has happened. Single mothers in Wallasey have been accused of living with a previous tenant in a house that they happened to rent at a particular time—allegations so absurd that they had not even thought of them. Their benefits have often been stopped for weeks and weeks, and they have...

Parliamentary Scrutiny of Leaving the EU (12 Oct 2016)

Angela Eagle: Will the Minister give way?

Parliamentary Scrutiny of Leaving the EU (12 Oct 2016)

Angela Eagle: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for North East Somerset (Mr Rees-Mogg), his mellifluous tones and his unbridled optimism for the future of the country, which some of us do not share in quite the same rose-tinted way. Leaving the European Union tears up a 50-year-old strategy that sought to replace our imperial past with closer economic and political co-operation with the European...

Parliamentary Scrutiny of Leaving the EU (12 Oct 2016)

Angela Eagle: I am afraid I agree with the hon. Gentleman’s analysis. He is right to make that point. We also know that entrepreneurial activity—risk taking and creativity—will be crucial in driving Britain’s future success, alongside an active state that both rewards success and leaves no one behind. However, the uncertainty about our future trade arrangements in this context is...

Angela Eagle: Will the Secretary of State give way?

Parliamentary Scrutiny of Leaving the EU (12 Oct 2016)

Angela Eagle: Will the Secretary of State give way?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Oct 2016)

Angela Eagle: Many people across the House will be reassured that the Government accepted the amendment to the Opposition motion to be debated later this afternoon that guarantees that this House is able properly to scrutinise the plan for leaving the European Union before article 50 is invoked. Can she tell us: will that scrutiny involve a vote?

Next Steps in Leaving the European Union (10 Oct 2016)

Angela Eagle: This is the first time I have ever heard parliamentary sovereignty referred to as micromanagement. In the past few weeks, we have seen many hundreds of thousands of foreign nationals working here question the welcome they received in this country and their future in this country. We know that many UK citizens living and working abroad in Europe are going through similar turmoil. We have heard...

Exiting the European Union (5 Sep 2016)

Angela Eagle: Unravelling 40 years of close co-operation within the European Union with now 27 nation states is, as the right hon. Gentleman is learning if he did not know before, a complex issue. Does he intend to give the House some ongoing view of how that is going? Will he provide some assurance on issues such as workers’ rights? Will we keep the principle of equal pay for work of equal value?...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Immigration (5 Sep 2016)

Angela Eagle: In China, the Prime Minister has unilaterally announced that Britain will not be adopting the points-based system on which the leave campaign put so much emphasis during the referendum, but that we will be doing something more effective. Can the Minister tell us what that is?

Steel Industry (26 May 2016)

Angela Eagle: I thank the right hon. Gentleman for his statement and for advance sight of it. I am surprised that he failed to mention any of the details of the consultation paper on pensions that his Government published today. I agree with the Secretary of State’s assessment of the importance of our steel industry to the UK economy. No one who saw the steelworkers march through London yesterday can...
