Gender Pricing (2 Feb 2016)

Angela Crawley: Absolutely, I think it is in everyone’s interest that there is a successful negotiation. I am only sorry that it has taken so long for this conversation to happen at all, to be perfectly honest. As has been cited, research conducted by the Fawcett Society indicates that 85% of the cuts have come at the expense of women. Whether we are talking about the welfare cap or cuts to carer’s...

[Graham Stringer in the Chair] — Transitional State Pension Arrangements for Women (1 Feb 2016)

Angela Crawley: Does the hon. Lady agree that we have ultimately failed to take into account the gender pay gap and the inequality between women and men for the many women who have been in low-paid work and have caring responsibilities?

Opposition Day — [17th Allotted Day] — Housing Benefit and Supported Housing: Prisons and Probation (27 Jan 2016)

Angela Crawley: The question of how prisons cope with offenders safely and securely is incredibly important, so I welcome the opportunity to speak in the debate. The concern that prisons are becoming an increasingly dangerous environment for staff and prisoners must be addressed. On the one hand, we have people with the incredibly tough job of regulating and ensuring the safety of those in prisons and, on...

Safety in Youth Custody — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (20 Jan 2016)

Angela Crawley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Wilson. I congratulate the hon. Member for Bradford South (Judith Cummins) on securing this important debate. Today’s debate was anticipated by the exposure by “Panorama” of the Medway secure training centre earlier this month. The prison abuses it broadcast, which we have discussed today, are shocking and to be condemned, and I...

Women and Equalities: State Pension Age (14 Jan 2016)

Angela Crawley: It is estimated that, with the new threshold to qualify for auto-enrolment set at £10,000, 1.28 million people will miss out on accessing their pension. Does the Minister agree that the Government’s pensions policy negatively impacts women, and will he support the establishment of an independent pensions commission to look at all pensions issues, including investigating the inequalities...

State Pension Age (Women) (7 Jan 2016)

Angela Crawley: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Paisley and Renfrewshire South (Mhairi Black) on securing this important debate. No one today has disagreed with the concept of equalisation. To bring the pension age for men and women into line promotes the sort of gender equality I have campaigned for, but the way the changes have been implemented amounts to an injustice for women, in the form...

State Pension Age (Women) (7 Jan 2016)

Angela Crawley: Absolutely. If there had been more women in the House over the years, perhaps those changes would not have taken place. Many women expecting to start drawing their state pensions only found out in 2011 that they would face a delay. I acknowledge the hard work of WASPI and its vociferous approach to ensuring the matter is addressed. These women have experienced at first hand the consequences...

Counter-terrorism (5 Jan 2016)

Angela Crawley: The contents of this video are utterly abhorrent, and we hope that appropriate measures are taken to clarify the identity of this individual as swiftly and accurately as possible. A reasoned and proportionate response to this threat is essential. The Scottish National party is committed to supporting all efforts to counter terrorism and to working to safeguard the lives of citizens of this...

Benefit Sanctions — [Mrs Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (16 Dec 2015)

Angela Crawley: The Scottish Association for Mental Health published research that found that 98% of service users had said that their mental health had deteriorated as a direct result of welfare reform. The research confirmed that benefit sanctions had been detrimental to the mental health of service users. Does my hon. Friend agree that sanctions are inhumane? I call for a review of the practice.

Transgender Prisoners (15 Dec 2015)

Angela Crawley: Has any consideration been given to those who identify as non-binary or non-gendered in that review and guidance?

Transgender Prisoners (15 Dec 2015)

Angela Crawley: I thank the hon. Lady for calling this important debate. As my former colleague on the Women and Equalities Committee, I know that she is a great champion of trans issues. The Scottish Prison Service has worked closely with the Scottish Transgender Alliance to produce guidance on gender identity and gender reassignment to ensure that prisoners are placed in the estate that reflects their...

Opposition Day — [12th Allotted Day]: Women and the Economy (9 Dec 2015)

Angela Crawley: Equal pay day was marked this year on 9 November. On that day, women across the United Kingdom started working for free, while men continued earning. It should be a day talked about in the history books, not a 21st-century reality. Forty-five years after the passing of the Equal Pay Act 1970, men still earn two months more wages a year than women. I welcome the Prime Minister’s comments...

Opposition Day — [12th Allotted Day]: Women and the Economy (9 Dec 2015)

Angela Crawley: I agree with my hon. Friend. As I said, I hope the Government will take serious action on tribunal fees, because they are acting as a barrier to women taking serious action against rogue employers in the workplace.

Opposition Day — [12th Allotted Day]: Women and the Economy (9 Dec 2015)

Angela Crawley: I agree, and I hope that the Government will take serious action and seriously consider the impact that tribunal fees have on women in the workplace. It is important for the House to acknowledge that, given the state of the economy. According to the Women’s Budget Group, women stand to lose more and gain less, especially women in low-paid work, women with children and other caring...

Women and Equalities: Gender Pay Gap (26 Nov 2015)

Angela Crawley: According to figures published last week in the annual survey of hours and earnings, the gender pay gap in the UK fell by 0.8 percentage points to 9.5%. However, in Scotland, the gap dropped by 1.8 percentage points to 7.5%. Will the Minister learn lessons from the action taken by the Scottish Government who are cutting the gender pay gap further and faster?

Personal Injury Fraud — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (18 Nov 2015)

Angela Crawley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Wilson. I congratulate the hon. Member for Lincoln (Karl McCartney) not only on securing this important debate but on his continued pursuit of the issue of insurance fraud during his time in the House. That included a parliamentary question in April last year to the Secretary of State for Justice regarding a judgment in the Supreme Court...

Personal Injury Fraud — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (18 Nov 2015)

Angela Crawley: I welcome the hon. Gentleman’s comments. I recognise what he says about a limit on the length of time for making claims, but not every person might be able to claim within two weeks of experiencing an accident. We must consider such issues, but I do welcome the point that other European countries have imposed all manner of limits, sanctions and bans that have resulted in fewer claims. As I...

[Mr George Howarth in the Chair] — Women and Low Pay (18 Nov 2015)

Angela Crawley: Does the hon. Lady agree that zero-hours contracts only exacerbate inequality? Will she join me in calling on the Government to ban exploitative zero-hours contracts, particularly as we are coming up to Christmas, when the retail industry in particular exploits such contracts?

[Mr George Howarth in the Chair] — Women and Low Pay (18 Nov 2015)

Angela Crawley: Does my hon. Friend agree that providing Scotland with powers over the minimum wage and welfare, which still sit with this House, would allow Scotland to address needs and ensure that inequality is abolished in Scotland?

[Mr George Howarth in the Chair] — Women and Low Pay (18 Nov 2015)

Angela Crawley: It is an honour to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Howarth. I congratulate the hon. Member for Brentford and Isleworth (Ruth Cadbury) on securing such an important debate. Gender equality is not a dream, or at least it should not be. Often when we debate gender inequality in the workplace, we hear the usual apologist grumbles from Members. We are told that, in many ways, it is a fact of...
