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. Member for North East Derbyshire (Lee Rowley) on securing the debate and on bravely speaking of his own experience and that of his mum, Linda. I am sorry to hear about the experience that his family have had in the past year and I wish Linda well. I thank hon. Members on both sides of the Chamber for...

HELMS and the Green Deal — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (23 Oct 2018)

Angela Crawley: One couple who approached me had specifically been told that installing solar panels would help them make money on the sale of their home, but instead they have been paying double and triple the amount for their electricity. Does my hon. Friend agree that those who have been hardest hit are people in middle to low-income homes?

HELMS and the Green Deal — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (23 Oct 2018)

Angela Crawley: I am sure that the hon. Gentleman is aware, from speaking to his constituents, that people who chose to pay over several years through their electricity bills are not able to withhold payment, which is a common and acceptable consumer rights practice, if they believe that there was mis-selling. If the power company does not receive the funds, those people accrue debt. They cannot prevent the...

HELMS and the Green Deal — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (23 Oct 2018)

Angela Crawley: The hon. Gentleman is speaking to specific issues of fuel poverty in Northern Ireland. To come back to the mis-selling of the green deal, does he agree that people were conned into buying mis-sold products on the basis that there were UK Government logos on the paperwork, and UK Government approval gave them the confidence to go ahead, so the Government should compensate those individuals?...

HELMS and the Green Deal — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (23 Oct 2018)

Angela Crawley: As my hon. Friend knows, last year I set up the all-party parliamentary group on green deal mis-selling, which I chair. We have been inundated by problems of that kind. The distinct issue in Scotland, with cladding work in particular, is the requirement for building warrants, which HELMS did not apply for and which cannot be applied for retrospectively. That leaves householders unable to sell...

Universal Credit (17 Oct 2018)

Angela Crawley: This week, South Lanarkshire Council informed employees that they could lose their universal credit over the Christmas period simply because they are paid four-weekly. Does my hon. Friend agree that this is yet another example of the shambles around universal credit, and will he urge the Secretary of State to do everything in her power to ensure that low-paid staff at South Lanarkshire...

Backbench Business: Deaf Children’s Services — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (13 Sep 2018)

Angela Crawley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Stringer. I congratulate the hon. Member for Poplar and Limehouse (Jim Fitzpatrick) on securing the debate, and on his sustained and dedicated campaigning on this matter. I welcome the fact that the House has made suitable accommodations so that the debate is accessible for everyone, and I welcome everyone watching, both here and at home....

Scallop Fishing: Bay of Seine: Business of the House (13 Sep 2018)

Angela Crawley: The Home Secretary recently responded to the Shaw report on immigration detention by commissioning a number of reviews. However, in his statement he failed to mention Stephen Shaw’s recommendation that the practice of detaining pregnant women should end. It has been revealed that more than 100 pregnant women were detained last year, yet only 20 of them were deported. There is simply no...

Women and Equalities: Universal Credit Roll-out (13 Sep 2018)

Angela Crawley: The Minister mentioned single parents. As she will be aware, 91% of lone parents are women. Does she agree that the new conditionality requirements for lone parents under universal credit will have a hugely disproportionate impact on women? Will she make representations to the Department for Work and Pensions about that?

Homelessness among Refugees — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (17 Jul 2018)

Angela Crawley: Thank you, Sir Edward, for calling me to speak. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship. I congratulate the hon. Member for Stretford and Urmston (Kate Green) on securing this debate. As we have already heard, those who have been granted refugee status are given 28 days to receive the required identity documentation, to secure a source of income and to find somewhere to live before...

Angela Crawley: What recent discussions he has had with the (a) Scottish Government and (b) Prime Minister on the Scottish Parliament’s decision not to grant a legislative consent motion for the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018: Legislative Consent (11 Jul 2018)

Angela Crawley: After repeated exclusion from Brexit discussions, the Secretary of State was finally allowed a place at the table at Chequers last week. How did he use that time to speak up for Scotland? What representations did he make on behalf of the Scottish Parliament, given the majority vote to withhold legislative consent?

Commercial Sexual Exploitation — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (4 Jul 2018)

Angela Crawley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Paisley. I congratulate the hon. Members for Rotherham (Sarah Champion) and for Luton South (Mr Shuker) on securing the important debate. They have both campaigned relentlessly on this issue. It is unfortunate that it is happening in Westminster Hall, because it should be in the main Chamber. Too often such important discussions happen...

The Minister for Women and Equalities Was Asked: Universal Credit: Women in Abusive Relationships (28 Jun 2018)

Angela Crawley: The DWP has continued to say that split payments are available, but does the Minister agree that that may put women at risk of further abuse in relationships and may prevent them from asking for this option?

Backbench Business: Mortgage Interest — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (19 Jun 2018)

Angela Crawley: Does the Minister accept, though, that six weeks is in real terms quite a short time in which to get the relevant and necessary financial advice? Relying on services such as Citizens Advice—voluntary, third sector services that are often financially strapped—to give people the necessary financial advice about their future seems a bit irresponsible on the Government’s part.

Backbench Business: Mortgage Interest — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (19 Jun 2018)

Angela Crawley: Does the Minister accept that through housing benefit most people forced into the private rented sector are paying someone else’s mortgage? Is it not a tad hypocritical to say that someone in hardship or who will not otherwise be able to work again should not have their mortgage paid when those in the private sector, often renting from private landlords, are paying mortgages through...

Backbench Business: Mortgage Interest — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (19 Jun 2018)

Angela Crawley: I beg to move, That this House has considered support for mortgage interest. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairship, Mr Hollobone. When people develop disability during their working life, it can disrupt those lives in profound ways, often making it impossible for them to work. Disability will not always take a person’s life plans into account, and the Government have a...
