Backbench Business: Recognition of Fibromyalgia as a Disability — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (15 Jan 2019)

Angela Crawley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairship, Mr Bailey. I congratulate the hon. Member for Chesterfield (Toby Perkins) on securing the debate and on his efforts to ensure greater recognition, research and understanding of fibromyalgia through the mechanisms of the House. I am only sorry that the debate is in Westminster Hall, where the amount of time is so compressed, and that, because of...

Women and Equalities: Vulnerable Women: Return to Work (20 Dec 2018)

Angela Crawley: I wish you, Mr Speaker, all hon. Members and everyone across my constituency a merry Christmas. The Minister has stated that she hopes that the returners fund will help women trapped in zero-hours contracts and low paid and low skilled work. Will she speak to her colleagues at the Department for Work and Pensions to ask for a review of how universal credit, in-work conditionality and...

Disability Support (19 Dec 2018)

Angela Crawley: Madam Deputy Speaker, I appreciate your fortitude, and that of the previous occupant of the Chair, at this time of the evening. It has been a long week. I thank the hon. Member for Oldham East and Saddleworth (Debbie Abrahams) for bringing forward this important debate and the Backbench Business Committee for granting it. Welfare reform has had a huge impact on my constituents, in particular...

Disability Support (19 Dec 2018)

Angela Crawley: I commend the hon. Gentleman for giving a far more honest portrayal of his experience of his constituents than other Government Members. May I just challenge a point he made earlier about the figures? Of course, when he refers to these figures, he is being somewhat selective. The rate of inflation means costs have risen since 2010, so naturally the costs, output and spend he refers to will be...

Immigration (Time Limit on Detention): [2nd Allotted Day] (5 Dec 2018)

Angela Crawley: Thank you for calling me, Mr Speaker. I appreciate your forbearance and patience, because it has been a long afternoon. Along with every other area in Scotland, my constituency voted to remain, yet Scotland has been repeatedly ignored. Because my time is limited, I will focus on three main points. I believe that this deal is bad for young people, bad for women and bad for the economy. The...

Delegated Legislation (Committees): Scotland’s Foreign Policy Footprint (3 Dec 2018)

Angela Crawley: To speak on behalf of—or perhaps in place of— the hon. Member for Rutherglen and Hamilton West (Ged Killen), the David Livingstone Centre, which is situated in his constituency, showcases the links between Scotland and Malawi. In my constituency, there is also the New Lanark mill, which is a UNESCO world heritage site and which illustrates the outstanding universal value of these...

Delegated Legislation (Committees): Scotland’s Foreign Policy Footprint (3 Dec 2018)

Angela Crawley: Scotland’s leadership on climate change and ambitious action on reducing carbon emissions in 2009 were showcased in the Copenhagen summit. Whether it is on refugees and migrant issues, gender issues, human rights, social justice or the environment, Scotland is leading the way—ahead of the UK.

Delegated Legislation (Committees): Scotland’s Foreign Policy Footprint (3 Dec 2018)

Angela Crawley: In terms of Scotland’s role in global citizenship, through its contribution to the UN’s sustainable development goals and its international development fund and strategy in Malawi, Rwanda, Zambia and Pakistan, Scotland has proven that it is an inclusive, outward-looking country that plays a vital role globally. Will my hon. Friend join me in urging the UK to follow our lead?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Immigration System (3 Dec 2018)

Angela Crawley: The UK detains more migrants than the majority of European countries and is alone in detaining indefinitely without a time limit. Does the Minister accept the findings of the Shaw review that detention is harmful to mental health and will he end indefinite detention?

Petition - a National Carers Strategy for Unpaid Carers: Jagtar Singh Johal (27 Nov 2018)

Angela Crawley: I praise my hon. Friend for his tireless campaign on behalf of his constituent Jagtar and his family. Does he share my deep concern that, given the FCO’s recent success and the publicity around the Matthew Hughes case, it is simply not good enough for the Minister to stand here today and offer platitudes? There has been inaction and a lack of capacity in this case, which has resulted in...

Universal Credit and Child Tax Credit: Two-child Limit — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (27 Nov 2018)

Angela Crawley: The charity Refuge found that the two-child limit is forcing domestic abuse survivors and their children into poverty as a result of an increased financial dependence on their perpetrators. Does my hon. Friend agree that women are ultimately fearful to leave abusive relationships because they cannot support themselves, and that that is another example of where the policy has gone wrong?

EU Exit Negotiations: Veterans Strategy (15 Nov 2018)

Angela Crawley: I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved in organising remembrance events across South Lanarkshire, including South Lanarkshire Council headquarters which lit up its own building to commemorate the anniversary. My constituent Thomas Stuart White from Carluke currently receives 70% of his war disablement pension and a lifetime award of disability living allowance....

Science and Technology Committee: Anti-bullying Week — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (15 Nov 2018)

Angela Crawley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Bailey, and I congratulate the hon. Member for Cambridge (Daniel Zeichner) on securing this important debate, raising awareness and championing the cause of eradicating bullying. It is Anti-bullying Week, and the theme is to choose respect. As the hon. Gentleman rightly outlined, the prevalence of bullying is increasing, including online...

Women and Equalities: Equality Act 2010: Commencement of Section 106 (15 Nov 2018)

Angela Crawley: A number of single parents have accessed the advance payment service under universal credit. However, as a result, they have found that the payments are required to be repaid in 15 months, or with 40% of their entitlement reclaimed. What will the Government do to ensure that many are not falling further into financial hardship as a result of advance payments under universal credit?

Ovarian Cancer: Diagnosis and Treatment — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (30 Oct 2018)

Angela Crawley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Bone. I congratulate the hon.
