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

Angela Eagle: When we joined the European Union we pooled parts of our sovereignty so that we could have a bigger bang for the buck that we spent, particularly on issues such as the environment. I do not know whether the hon. Gentleman has noticed, but pollution does not stop at national borders. The most hallucinatory of the Eurosceptic nostalgics in the Tory party dream of a frictionless divorce with no...

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

Angela Eagle: In that spirit, does my hon. and learned Friend agree that it is astonishing that the Government have not told us when they will publish the White Paper? Does he agree that it should be published ahead of the Bill’s Committee, which is scheduled for next week?

Us Immigration Policy (30 Jan 2017)

Angela Eagle: The Foreign Secretary knows that this policy is counterproductive, immoral and wrong. His attitude and approach is to get an exemption for UK citizens and invite the perpetrator to a full state visit. That does not seem like the wholehearted condemnation that the House deserves to hear given. What will he do to make it absolutely clear, in no uncertain terms, to the American Administration...

Business of the House (26 Jan 2017)

Angela Eagle: Since this Government came into office they have sought to avoid parliamentary scrutiny of their plans to leave the EU and to achieve their aims by resorting to the use of the royal prerogative, bypassing this Parliament. First, they lost in the High Court, then they lost in the Supreme Court, and now, finally, they have had to concede that Parliament is sovereign by publishing a Bill and a...

Article 50 (24 Jan 2017)

Angela Eagle: Today the Government have been humiliated in the Supreme Court. They have been taught a lesson about the real meaning of parliamentary sovereignty and taking back control. Will the Secretary of State now accept this verdict in the spirit, as well as the letter, of the ruling and finally concede that this House needs votes along the way, not simply debates without votes, and proper...

New Partnership with the EU (17 Jan 2017)

Angela Eagle: The Secretary of State was an early advocate of a White Paper. Downing Street has made it clear that there will be no White Paper, and that the Prime Minister’s speech is all we are going to get. Is he disappointed by that, and will he go back and ask her to think again so that we can have meaningful debates, with votes, ahead of the final agreement?

NHS and Social Care Funding (11 Jan 2017)

Angela Eagle: There is unprecedented pressure in Wirral, too. As recently as last week A&E attendances and GP referrals were massively up. Unprecedentedly, 84 additional beds are being laid on, and they are now full. Last week, all elective in-patient appointments were cancelled and ambulance turnarounds reached up to five hours. At Prime Minister’s questions, the Prime Minister did not seem to...

Mental Health and NHS Performance (9 Jan 2017)

Angela Eagle: The Secretary of State has talked a great deal about preventing people from needing to go to A&E by intervening much earlier, yet surely he must recognise that the cuts to local authorities and social care make it much more likely that people will not be picked up earlier in the progress of an illness but will have to resort to the health service in a much more difficult situation. Can he...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Motability (9 Jan 2017)

Angela Eagle: Whether his Department plans to publish data on the number of people who have lost their Motability scheme vehicle following their reassessment for personal independence payments.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Motability (9 Jan 2017)

Angela Eagle: My constituent Evelyn Campbell had her Motability car removed on 20 December following a PIP assessment, leaving her housebound and distressed over Christmas. It will take months for her appeal to be heard. In the meantime, her car has been sold. Is this not another cruel policy from this Government? Given that 60% of PIP appeals are successful and that the cars have to be reprovided, is it...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Motability (9 Jan 2017)

Angela Eagle: It is 60%.

Sky: 21ST Century Fox Takeover Bid: Points of Order (20 Dec 2016)

Angela Eagle: On a point of order, Mr Speaker.

Sky: 21ST Century Fox Takeover Bid: Points of Order (20 Dec 2016)

Angela Eagle: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Many of us who have been Ministers know only too well that quasi-judicial processes have to be very carefully handled in this Chamber, but I wonder whether you could assist us. We had a statement from the Secretary of State on the Sky bid, but she refused to answer a range of other questions, such as whether she had read a 2012 Ofcom report that is published...

Sky: 21ST Century Fox Takeover Bid (20 Dec 2016)

Angela Eagle: The Secretary of State is quite properly saying that she will not comment on the decision itself, but that does not mean that she cannot answer some of the questions that are being put to her today, and she should not hide behind that. So I ask her again: has she read the 2012 Ofcom report on the conduct of James Murdoch—yes or no?

HMP Birmingham (19 Dec 2016)

Angela Eagle: Will the Secretary of State now acknowledge that the root cause of these difficulties is the cutting of £700 million from the Prison Service since 2010? Will she now apologise to the House, and say that that was a false economy?

European Council 2016 (19 Dec 2016)

Angela Eagle: Perhaps the Prime Minister could then tell us with some certainty when her plan for exiting the European Union, which she has agreed to present to this House, will be ready. Presumably, it will be some time before she triggers article 50.

Social Care Funding (12 Dec 2016)

Angela Eagle: Thank you, Mr Speaker. I think it is right that you chose the younger before the older this time, because you did the opposite last time. In the Wirral we have an above-average number of older people, yet we have a very low council tax base, which means that we cannot raise enough money through council tax to deal with the shortfalls in adult social care. As the Minister knows, £5...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Adult Social Care (28 Nov 2016)

Angela Eagle: Thank you, Mr Speaker; you may have caused me some trouble later this evening. In the past six years, the Government have cut social care funding by nearly £5 billion. In my authority of Wirral, there is a £3.5 million hole in the budget only halfway through the year. The system is on its knees, and there has been an 18% increase in emergency admissions to hospital as a result. The...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (23 Nov 2016)

Angela Eagle: The Prime Minister has talked about her worries about social care, but surely we have to judge her by her actions. In the last six years there has been an average 37% cut in local authority funding—57% in my area—and nearly a quarter of all those older people in need of social care have been denied any help at all. What is she going to do about it?
