Backbench Business: Debt Advice and Debt Management (1 Dec 2011)

Tracey Crouch: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Stockton North (Alex Cunningham). I attended the Backbench Business Committee with him in order to try to secure this debate, and I am grateful to the Committee for enabling us to speak on this important issue. Debt is not a new phenomenon, but over recent years personal debt levels have risen sharply and have become unmanageable for many. Total...

Backbench Business: Debt Advice and Debt Management (1 Dec 2011)

Tracey Crouch: The hon. Gentleman makes a fair point. We all see people in our constituencies who have been tied in and there has always been a vested interest in such programmes.

Backbench Business: Debt Advice and Debt Management (1 Dec 2011)

Tracey Crouch: As it happens, I was about to tell the House about an instance of which I have recently learned. An individual entered an agreement to pay back their debt through a debt management plan. The plan spanned a total of 14 years and required repayment totalling far more than the original debt. In fact, this particular individual would have found it far cheaper to declare bankruptcy. The...

Backbench Business: Debt Advice and Debt Management (1 Dec 2011)

Tracey Crouch: I am aware that the BIS Committee is looking into this and I hope that its recommendations when it has finished the inquiry will help the Government to form an appropriate regulatory structure, because it is clear that the current structure simply is not good enough. Currently, a clear bias exists in favour of pushing consumers into plans that are likely to yield more in fees, rather than...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Women in Sport (15 Dec 2011)

Tracey Crouch: What steps he is taking to increase the participation of women in sport.

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Women in Sport (15 Dec 2011)

Tracey Crouch: I congratulate the Minister on all that he and his Department are doing to increase participation levels, but does he agree that while women’s sport accounts for only 5% of all sports coverage, the profile of sports women will remain so low that not only will talented athletes not make it on to award lists, such as the BBC sport’s personality of the year, but many of our best role models...

Health (20 Dec 2011)

Tracey Crouch: It is a pleasure to open the health section of the Christmas Adjournment debate. Albert Einstein famously said: “It is strange to be known so universally and yet to be so lonely.” At a time of extreme population growth, greater connectivity created by technological advances and the ability to sustain friendships around the globe, it is perhaps bizarre to think about the worrying...

Sexual Offences (Amendment): Backbench Business — [Un-allotted Day] — Future of Town Centres and High Streets (17 Jan 2012)

Tracey Crouch: In addition to the proliferation of betting shops, there has been a proliferation of high-cost credit lenders on our high streets, which prey on some of the most vulnerable members of society. Will my hon. Friend join me in congratulating Medway council, which has established a cross-party working group to look at how the council can get involved in ensuring that the licensing of those...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Clause 93 — Benefit cap (1 Feb 2012)

Tracey Crouch: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Clause 93 — Benefit cap (1 Feb 2012)

Tracey Crouch: I am grateful to the shadow Secretary of State for giving way. Having read the Conservative briefing, he will recall saying last week that he thought the benefit cap right in principle. Why, then, will he vote against it this evening?

Estimates Day — [4th Allotted Day] — Vote on Account 2012-13 — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Olympics and Paralympics (Funding) (27 Feb 2012)

Tracey Crouch: I am grateful for the opportunity to contribute to this important debate on the Olympics estimates. It is always a pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Corby (Louise Mensch). I read her contribution to the Select Committee debate—it provided interesting research material for today’s debate, which has been interesting so far. I congratulate the previous Government not only on...

Estimates Day — [4th Allotted Day] — Vote on Account 2012-13 — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Olympics and Paralympics (Funding) (27 Feb 2012)

Tracey Crouch: My hon. Friend makes a good point. Indeed, she demonstrated in her speech that we can put on a good event, as the new year fireworks demonstrated this year—as she so eloquently put it, they put Sydney to shame—so we can certainly do this. It is important that we get the balancing act right for the taxpayer. Of course, if financial tightrope walking was an Olympic sport, all of us here...

Estimates Day — [4th Allotted Day] — Vote on Account 2012-13 — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Olympics and Paralympics (Funding) (27 Feb 2012)

Tracey Crouch: I certainly agree. I am lucky to share a county with the Minister, who has been a strong advocate of encouraging people to participate in sport and the games. We would encourage not only greater participation, but inter and intra-school competitiveness, which I think is hugely important.

Estimates Day — [4th Allotted Day] — Vote on Account 2012-13 — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Olympics and Paralympics (Funding) (27 Feb 2012)

Tracey Crouch: I completely agree. For too long we have had an “everyone should have prizes” culture, and the great thing about sport is that it does encourage competitiveness. Competitiveness is right at a particular age: it is important to ensure that young people at an early age engage in sport, but as they get older competitiveness becomes a hugely important part. Returning to the 1984 LA Olympics,...

Estimates Day — [4th Allotted Day] — Vote on Account 2012-13 — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Olympics and Paralympics (Funding) (27 Feb 2012)

Tracey Crouch: I completely agree, and my hon. Friend will be aware that there are three Kent players in the GB team, so we look forward to an increase in people’s participation in hockey, although my memories of it, at a girl’s school in his constituency, fill me with horror sometimes. With the advent of multi-platform broadcasting, I am excited for our younger generation, who will be able to watch...

Estimates Day — [4th Allotted Day] — Vote on Account 2012-13 — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Olympics and Paralympics (Funding) (27 Feb 2012)

Tracey Crouch: I completely agree, and it is not just about the people, but about the clubs that help prepare the athletes to reach major sporting events such as the Olympics. Our investment in that legacy will show a huge return in the long term. As a Kent and Medway MP I am delighted that we, as a county, have a number of locally born and bred athletes taking part in this year’s Olympics. The county...

Estimates Day — [4th Allotted Day] — Vote on Account 2012-13 — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Olympics and Paralympics (Funding) (27 Feb 2012)

Tracey Crouch: I completely agree, but let us remember that there are several sporting events in the Olympics and not all will take place in London. Such factors will encourage people from all over the country to go to the Olympics, but the Olympics themselves will be spread far and wide across the nation. The estimated budget, as supported by today’s motion, was realistically set by the previous...

Estimates Day — [4th Allotted Day] — Vote on Account 2012-13 — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Olympics and Paralympics (Funding) (27 Feb 2012)

Tracey Crouch: Will the right hon. Lady join me in thanking the private companies that have over a number of years invested in our athletes, but that will get nothing from the Olympic games, perhaps because they are not official sponsors? Aviva, where I worked before entering Parliament, has sponsored elite athletes; British Gas has sponsored swimmers, I believe, and other companies have sponsored gymnasts....

Paye: Mesothelioma (5 Mar 2012)

Tracey Crouch: What steps his Department is taking to support people with mesothelioma.

Paye: Mesothelioma (5 Mar 2012)

Tracey Crouch: I thank the Minister for that reply. He will be aware that, because of its shipbuilding and industrial heritage, Medway has the second highest rate of mesothelioma deaths in the UK. His Department has been in active discussions with various stakeholders regarding a compensation fund of last resort for some time now. Given that we are expecting a spike in mesothelioma deaths in the next few...
