Access to Mental Health Services: Clause 26 — Meaning of “controlled expenditure” (10 Sep 2013)

Tracey Crouch: It is quite clear from today’s discussions that there is still some confusion among charities and third sector organisations about some of the wording in the Bill. I am pleased to hear that the Minister is willing to reconsider the precise wording, but when he does, will he bear in mind the fact that other organisations are also concerned about the impact of the Bill? They include the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Press Self-Regulation (8 Oct 2013)

Tracey Crouch: Further to the royal charter’s extremely swift passage through both Houses of Parliament, what legal advice has the Secretary of State subsequently received on whether exemplary damages and the allocations of costs would breach article 10 of the European convention on human rights, and will that form any basis for future discussions with the industry?

Coroners and Justice (Amendment): Clause 26 — Meaning of “controlled expenditure” (9 Oct 2013)

Tracey Crouch: I recognise that some progress has been made on the precise wording of the clause, but there remains a huge amount of uncertainty among the charities and, indeed, the Electoral Commission as to how this will work. Does the Minister recognise that that makes it very difficult for people not only to understand it but to support it?

Bill Presented — National Insurance Contributions Bill: New Clause 33 — Injunction — best interests of the child (14 Oct 2013)

Tracey Crouch: I welcome my hon. Friend the Minister to his new position and I look forward to working with him in the future on some key issues. Government amendment 4 would replace the amendments to the Bill that I tabled and that were passed in Committee. I am grateful for Opposition support for the amendments and for the support of my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Sleaford and North Hykeham...

Bill Presented — National Insurance Contributions Bill: New Clause 33 — Injunction — best interests of the child (14 Oct 2013)

Tracey Crouch: My hon. Friend makes a very good point, and that is exactly why it is important to add to the Bill the requirements to deal with bullying. We can deal with the bullies as well as the victims, because bullies are often victims of wider bullying, perhaps at home. The positive requirements would enable all sorts of agencies to intervene at an early stage and protect not just the victims, but the...

Regulation of the Private Rented Sector: New Clause 3 — Dog control notices (15 Oct 2013)

Tracey Crouch: I rise to address amendment 133 tabled in my name, which looks specifically at extending the Bill to include protected animals. I tabled a similar amendment—slightly differently worded—in Committee, and it has been redrafted by animal welfare charities for consideration today. The amendment is intended to be limited in scope, and would not capture a genuine, accidental attack by a dog on...

Regulation of the Private Rented Sector: New Clause 3 — Dog control notices (15 Oct 2013)

Tracey Crouch: It was a pleasure to serve on the Committee that considered this Bill. It was indeed the first Public Bill Committee on which I served. After my active participation, I am in no doubt that it may well be my last! I was pleased to play a role and I think that we Back Benchers sometimes underestimate and undervalue the work we do in scrutinising legislation, which is an incredibly important...

Badger Vaccines (16 Oct 2013)

Tracey Crouch: Does my hon. Friend recognise that one of the benefits of vaccination versus a cull is that vaccinations have no perturbation effect?

Badger Vaccines (16 Oct 2013)

Tracey Crouch: Is my hon. Friend aware that the response to a recent freedom of information request on 22 September shows a significant reduction in the amount of departmental investment in the oral vaccine particularly, but also in all other research into injectable vaccine and cattle vaccines? Spending on the oral vaccine will fall from around £2.5 million to £312,000 in 2015. Should that not be dealt...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Legal Highs (28 Oct 2013)

Tracey Crouch: The Minister will be aware that there are shops on our high streets, such as UK Skunkworks in Chatham, that sell legal highs alongside other drug paraphernalia. Those shops abandon any responsibility for the sometimes tragic consequences of their activities by labelling the products as being unfit for human consumption. Will he commit to including the over-the-counter sales, and the...

Electric Vehicles (Vulnerable Road Users) — [Mr Jim Hood in the Chair] (30 Oct 2013)

Tracey Crouch: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hood. I congratulate the hon. Member for North Tyneside (Mrs Glindon) on securing this debate on an incredibly important issue, although, as she pointed out, it is not as simple as one would hope. The growth of electric vehicles is good for not only our economy, but our environment, so we as MPs should welcome it. However, it is clear...

Electric Vehicles (Vulnerable Road Users) — [Mr Jim Hood in the Chair] (30 Oct 2013)

Tracey Crouch: I agree entirely. I have always thought that the sudden appearance of those vehicles is a consequence of my voting record and that there is an intention from Ministers or Whips. My hon. Friend raised the point of there being areas in all our communities with blind spots and blind corners. Whereas someone can hear a normal car, a lorry or even a cyclist who has the good sense to ring their...

Electric Vehicles (Vulnerable Road Users) — [Mr Jim Hood in the Chair] (30 Oct 2013)

Tracey Crouch: My hon. Friend is a great champion of those with autism, and I congratulate him on all the work he has done on the issue. He is absolutely right that those of us without a learning or physical disability do not necessarily understand the challenges that those with disabilities or impairments face. While we all accept and recognise the need for the growth in more environmentally friendly cars,...

Electric Vehicles (Vulnerable Road Users) — [Mr Jim Hood in the Chair] (30 Oct 2013)

Tracey Crouch: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention. My constituency is part-urban, part-rural, so I see the challenges from both sides: the densely populated areas with blind spots and corners and the villages with high hedges and everything else. Electric vehicles are bringing challenges in every part of our community. I had the great privilege of attending the Kent Association for the Blind forum...

Electric Vehicles (Vulnerable Road Users) — [Mr Jim Hood in the Chair] (30 Oct 2013)

Tracey Crouch: My hon. Friend makes another excellent point. Many members of the public are ignorant as to what the guide dog is there for. The same lady from the previous story told me about how she had got on a bus and asked the driver whether it was the one to Chatham. The bus driver said, “Can’t your dog tell you that?”, as if the dog could somehow read the number of the bus and communicate that...

Electric Vehicles (Vulnerable Road Users) — [Mr Jim Hood in the Chair] (30 Oct 2013)

Tracey Crouch: Another group has been pointed out to me on Twitter during the debate this afternoon. Someone tweeted me to say that they drive a Toyota Prius and are amazed that they have not yet knocked over and killed somebody who has stumbled out into the street when drunk. Walking around our town centres on a Friday or Saturday evening, one can understand where they are coming from.

Electric Vehicles (Vulnerable Road Users) — [Mr Jim Hood in the Chair] (30 Oct 2013)

Tracey Crouch: Is the Minister aware that research from the European Union found that 93% of blind and partially sighted people have already experienced difficulties with electric vehicles? In the Department’s research, are the figures broken down by groups of people? For example, do we know whether the instances that he has highlighted involved other vehicles or pedestrians and whether those pedestrians...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Fixed Odds Betting Terminals (31 Oct 2013)

Tracey Crouch: The Minister will be aware that the Kent Messenger recently reported that gamblers across Kent and the Medway lost £33 million on FOBTs, including £1.6 million in my constituency and £1.9 million in her own constituency. Does she agree, therefore, that we need to look properly at the devastating impact that these high-risk, high-stake machines are having on our constituents?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Aircraft Carriers and UK Shipbuilding (6 Nov 2013)

Tracey Crouch: Shipbuilding in Chatham ended 30 years ago and although the dockyard is a diverse business hub today, its closure left scars of devastation and deprivation on the town. When the Secretary of State is putting together his support package for the areas sadly affected by today’s announcement, will he look at the history of the closure of Chatham dockyard, learn the lessons and make sure that...
