Backbench Business — [32nd( )Allotted Day]: Procedure Committee Reports (13 Oct 2011)

Tracey Crouch: I am a user of Twitter myself. One of its advantages is that messages have to be condensed into 140 characters to communicate with the outside world. Does the hon. Lady agree that we could learn from that, and try to condense more of our contributions to 140 characters?

Anchor Housing Association (13 Oct 2011)

Tracey Crouch: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Anchor Housing Association (13 Oct 2011)

Tracey Crouch: I recently initiated an Adjournment debate on older people in Westminster Hall, during which I drew attention to the acute pressure on housing for our older generation. Given that that pressure will become a great deal worse, will the Minister consider the constructive suggestion that some flexibility should be applied to the new homes bonus? That might well give developers an incentive to...

Opposition Day — [Un-allotted Day]: National Health Service (26 Oct 2011)

Tracey Crouch: May I take this opportunity to congratulate the right hon. Gentleman on his new post? He is back where he once was, but on the other side of the House. Last year, in The Guardian, the right hon. Gentleman stated that it was “irresponsible to increase NHS spending in real terms”. Does he still stand by that statement?

Education and Training (Young People with Autism): New Clause 26 — Offence of squatting in a residential building (1 Nov 2011)

Tracey Crouch: I am sure the Minister will recall that a year ago tomorrow he met my constituent Steve Cross, a commercial property manager. The Government are clearly concerned about the impact of squatting in commercial property, so it is surprising that the new clause, which I entirely support, does not include greater protections for commercial properties. Will the Minister reassure my constituent that...

Education and Training (Young People with Autism): New Clause 26 — Offence of squatting in a residential building (1 Nov 2011)

Tracey Crouch: Does the hon. Gentleman not consider that one of the flaws with the current legislation is section 6 of the 1977 Act, which allows squatters to claim rights to a property, thereby making it difficult for owners to get rid of them?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (9 Nov 2011)

Tracey Crouch: On Christmas day 1914, British and German troops put down their weapons and played a football match in no man’s land. The following day, the bloody hostilities resumed. Today, we wear the poppy in remembrance of our war dead. Will the Prime Minister join me in condemning the outrageous decision by FIFA to refuse the home nations’ request to wear the poppy on their shirts this weekend as a...

Business of the House (10 Nov 2011)

Tracey Crouch: By 2021, the number of people living with dementia is predicted to rise to more than 1 million. There is active interest across the House in how we will deal with this ticking time bomb. Will the Leader of the House consider holding on the Floor of the House a general debate on dementia so that we can discuss this issue in detail?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (22 Nov 2011)

Tracey Crouch: Pension reform is important to those of my constituents who work in the public sector—and, indeed, to the taxpayers who do not. With that in mind, does the Secretary of State agree that the heath service unions should work constructively with the Government on public sector pension reform rather than go on strike next week, potentially putting patients’ lives at risk?

Credit Unions — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (23 Nov 2011)

Tracey Crouch: As always, Mr Streeter, it is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for East Hampshire (Damian Hinds) on securing the debate. The hon. Member for Islwyn (Chris Evans) spoke passionately about financial literacy. He might be interested to learn that a young lady doing work experience with me this week is watching the debate from the Gallery....

Credit Unions — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (23 Nov 2011)

Tracey Crouch: I agree. As many providers as exist should be entitled to teach children about the variety of sources of financial awareness. I have been to primary schools in my constituency and seen big banks supporting financial education programmes, which I think is fantastic, but we should get as many people in there as possible. I proudly declare, like many Members here, that I am a member of a credit...

Girls (Educational Development) — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (29 Nov 2011)

Tracey Crouch: It is a pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Gosport (Caroline Dinenage) and other hon. Friends who have spoken thus far. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Wirral West (Esther McVey) on securing the debate. I went to an all-girls school, and I look forward to going back shortly to do its prize-giving. I have a suspicion that confidence will be a key part of any speech...

Girls (Educational Development) — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (29 Nov 2011)

Tracey Crouch: It is interesting how in the past certain comedians have mocked women’s education, to try to belittle women. Some dictatorships have banned women from being educated, which makes the point. In my short remarks I want to mention the importance of sport and physical activity in building girls’ confidence. I am interested and active in sport, and am pleased to say I have just been appointed...

Girls (Educational Development) — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (29 Nov 2011)

Tracey Crouch: I agree. Competitive sport is important as it builds team spirit and confidence in many different ways, but other sports build personal confidence. I am thinking of dance and the advent of “Strictly Come Dancing”, which has inspired many more young people to get involved and interested in dance. We should try to maintain as much variety as possible in the range of sports available to...

Girls (Educational Development) — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (29 Nov 2011)

Tracey Crouch: I completely agree with my hon. Friend, and have been careful not to talk just about sport, because physical activity is incredibly important. Getting people involved in sport or physical activity is one thing; keeping them involved as they get older is a very different problem, and all clubs or organisations involved in providing sports opportunities are finding it difficult. In my field,...

Girls (Educational Development) — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (29 Nov 2011)

Tracey Crouch: The hon. Gentleman will be delighted to know it was Sami I was thinking of when I wrote those words earlier. I thought she was a fantastic singer and that it was an inspiration to everyone watching to see someone of a bigger size be talented, and have the confidence to go up on stage and sing well. It is a shame we do not see as much coverage of female as of male sporting heroes on our...

Backbench Business: BBC (Proposed Cuts) (1 Dec 2011)

Tracey Crouch: If the west midlands is the heart of England, Kent is the garden of England. Is the hon. Lady aware that Radio Kent, which provides many of my constituents with an excellent service, has longer listening hours throughout the week than any other BBC radio station? That is why it is vital to retain top-quality programmes and stations for our constituents.

Backbench Business: BBC (Proposed Cuts) (1 Dec 2011)

Tracey Crouch: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that one reason people are so loyal to their local radio stations is the variety they provide: there is the heavy speech content in the morning, followed by a variety of music, plugs for local events and so on in the lunch-time and afternoon shows, followed by the interesting speech content mix in the drive-time shows. That variety means loyal listeners.

Backbench Business: BBC (Proposed Cuts) (1 Dec 2011)

Tracey Crouch: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Backbench Business: BBC (Proposed Cuts) (1 Dec 2011)

Tracey Crouch: I am grateful to the right hon. and learned Lady for her generosity in giving way. I support everything that she says about the BBC sports personality of the year. As a sportswoman and someone who coaches girls on a regular basis, I think that it is important that the BBC looks at its overall coverage of women sports. Rather than imposing positive discrimination so that women get on to the...
