Secondary Ticketing (13 Mar 2012)

Tracey Crouch: I was surprised by the number of e-mails I received on this issue. Having heard that list, perhaps I should not have been. I received an e-mail from a constituent, Mr Sunderland from Larkfield. He said that a typical scenario is for tickets to go on sale on a Friday at 9 am, and by 9.10 am they are sold out. They are then listed on other websites at triple the face value, or even more, of the...

Surrogate Parents (Leave, Pay and Allowance Arrangements): Exception in respiratory (industrial disease or illness) cases (17 Apr 2012)

Tracey Crouch: I wish to speak only briefly. I am inclined to support Lords amendment 31 this evening, but I intend to listen to the debate carefully before the Division. In the meantime, I hope to make clear my views on this issue. I ought to start by placing on record the fact that I used to work for one of the UK’s largest insurance companies. My views might therefore surprise many, particularly on the...

Surrogate Parents (Leave, Pay and Allowance Arrangements): Exception in respiratory (industrial disease or illness) cases (17 Apr 2012)

Tracey Crouch: I thank my hon. Friend for his intervention. It is clear that this disease affects many people. In recognition of the high number of cases of mesothelioma, and of the swift and horrible deterioration in the health of its victims, my local primary care trust continues to invest in providing specialist nursing for meso victims, including dedicated Macmillian nurses and support staff. That is...

Bill Presented — Housing (Selective Licensing of Private Landlords in Exempted Areas) Bill: Clause 1 — Lord Chancellor’s functions (24 Apr 2012)

Tracey Crouch: In the light of your comments, Mr Deputy Speaker, I will make a short speech, and will confine my remarks to the Government’s amendment to Lords amendment 31. Let me first pay tribute to the work of Lord Alton, Lord Avebury, the late Lord Newton, and others in the House of Lords for tabling the original amendment. Without their dedication and commitment to ensuring a workable outcome for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (14 Jun 2012)

Tracey Crouch: The Sports Minister will be aware that one of the factors in keeping girls involved in sport is the distinct lack of coverage in our national and local newspapers. Will he consider holding a round-table discussion with national and local media organisations to address that issue in the long term?

[Jim Dobbin in the Chair] — Aviation (4 Jul 2012)

Tracey Crouch: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this important debate. Has he seen the report issued by the South East local enterprise partnership, which states that if we allowed our existing airports to expand, we could increase the number of jobs by about 100,000? That would generate in excess of £4 billion per annum.

[Jim Dobbin in the Chair] — Aviation (4 Jul 2012)

Tracey Crouch: There is an argument about competitiveness, and that argument is for today. Our colleagues are arguing that businesses in their constituencies require the opportunities now. Therefore we should be making the most of our existing airports, rather than waiting two decades for a new airport to be built to maximise opportunities.

House of Lords Reform Bill: [1st Allocated Day] (9 Jul 2012)

Tracey Crouch: rose —

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Specialist Disability Employment (10 Jul 2012)

Tracey Crouch: Royal British Legion Industries, which is based in Aylesford, employs many disabled people in its factories. We must be very mindful in this place that whenever politicians make an announcement about disability employment, it can be incredibly frightening. Will the Minister therefore reassure my constituents that this Government will do all they can to continue to provide good-quality...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Care and Support (11 Jul 2012)

Tracey Crouch: I have a great deal of respect for the Secretary of State, but I agree with the chief executive of the Alzheimer’s Society, who has said: “Every day without a funding decision is another day where people…with dementia…face huge costs for…substandard care.” Will the Secretary of State therefore take this opportunity to assure the House that any new system of funding will end the...

United Kingdom Borders: VAT on Air Ambulance Fuel Payments (11 Jul 2012)

Tracey Crouch: I start by congratulating my hon. Friend the Member for Hexham (Guy Opperman) and the hon. Member for York Central (Hugh Bayley) on securing the debate. I was delighted to attend the Backbench Business Committee meeting at which the proposal was made. I know that the hon. Member for York Central was unable to be there, but I am pleased that we now have the opportunity to have this...

United Kingdom Borders: VAT on Air Ambulance Fuel Payments (11 Jul 2012)

Tracey Crouch: I completely agree. The Kent, Surrey and Sussex air ambulance has two helicopters to serve the three counties. I am sure that all money saved from VAT would be used effectively. One great thing about the Kent, Surrey and Sussex air ambulance is that it transports a specialist doctor and a critical care paramedic directly to the scene of serious medical emergencies. They provide enhanced care...

United Kingdom Borders: VAT on Air Ambulance Fuel Payments (11 Jul 2012)

Tracey Crouch: It is worth pointing out that not every helicopter that is leased is done so with the fuel included. Some air ambulance helicopters are on a lease agreement, such as the Kent air ambulance, but that does not include the fuel.

United Kingdom Borders: VAT on Air Ambulance Fuel Payments (11 Jul 2012)

Tracey Crouch: As a Cornishman, my hon. Friend will understand the close links between the air ambulance service, RAF search and rescue and, of course, the RNLI, which has been mentioned many times. I think that we should take this opportunity to thank all the volunteers, particularly those in the RNLI—having grown up in Cornwall, he will know that, sadly, some lifeboat men have been lost over the...

Health (17 Jul 2012)

Tracey Crouch: I am very fortunate never to have been in a situation where I have continuously required alcohol to blot out misery or pain. I am fortunate enough to have never been so drunk in a public place that my safety or personal dignity was compromised. In fact, I abhor drunkenness, public or otherwise. It upsets and frightens me that some people become so inebriated that they are incapable of...

Health (17 Jul 2012)

Tracey Crouch: I agree entirely. We should remember that a significant number of people in this country do not drink at all; it is those who drink to excessive levels whom we need to be concerned about. Since the 1960s, many more women have entered the work force. Some have put off raising families and the associated responsibilities in favour of pursuing their career. As a result, they have much more money...

Health (17 Jul 2012)

Tracey Crouch: The hon. Gentleman makes a good point. Labelling of alcohol has improved significantly over the past few years, particularly in relation to pregnant women. In many ways, drinking at home poses a real issue. It is difficult to assess the true extent of the problem of home drinking because the only data we have to go on are results from surveys, and many respondents are likely to under-report...

Opposition Day — [5th Allotted Day]: Rail Fares (5 Sep 2012)

Tracey Crouch: I am sure that I shall like my right hon. Friend better in his new role than in his last. The shadow Secretary of State was kind enough to quote accurately comments that I made to my local newspaper reflecting my constituents’ concern about rail fare increases. I said that I would continue to make representations on the matter. Rather than succumbing to the political opportunism displayed...

Backbench Business: Select Committee Inquiry (Aviation Strategy) (13 Sep 2012)

Tracey Crouch: The hon. Lady is generous with her time. Speaking as an MP who represents a Medway seat—one that will be directly affected by any proposals for a Thames estuary airport—I ask the hon. Lady to confirm that she will be willing to take oral evidence from members of the public who will be directly affected by any of the proposals?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Bovine TB and Badger Control (23 Oct 2012)

Tracey Crouch: As a Conservative Member who is against the cull, I welcome the Secretary of State’s announcement today, and it was upsetting to see Labour Members laughing throughout the statement when bovine TB has such devastating effect on our farmers. Will the Secretary of State accept that the proposed cull will reduce BTB by only 16%, and could, if anything, spread and increase the disease across...
