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....

[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...

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

Angela Crawley: I absolutely agree with the hon. Lady and thank her for that point. I hope the Minister will address that in his remarks. This fight is not reserved to half of the population. We do not fight against injustice for one sex; we fight for everyone. No man wants his wife, daughter, sister or mother to earn less simply because they are women. We need to send a strong message to employers,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Violent Crime (16 Nov 2015)

Angela Crawley: What steps she plans to take to reduce the level of violent crime.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Violent Crime (16 Nov 2015)

Angela Crawley: The Minister will be aware that the violence reduction unit in Scotland has taken an innovative approach to tackling violence by working with dentists, hairdressers, vets and others to identify domestic abuse. It has also successfully carried out work among gangs on promoting positive alternatives. What lessons can her Department learn from the success of Scotland’s violence reduction...

Houses of Parliament (Family-friendliness) — [Fabian Hamilton in the Chair] (10 Nov 2015)

Angela Crawley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hamilton. I thank the hon. Member for Birmingham, Yardley (Jess Phillips), my Select Committee colleague and fellow feminist, for securing this debate. This building—this institution—was not built with women or families in mind. I direct Members’ attention to the Lady Members’ Room, to which I was introduced in my...

Houses of Parliament (Family-friendliness) — [Fabian Hamilton in the Chair] (10 Nov 2015)

Angela Crawley: We all need to iron; it is not gender-specific. What message does this place send to young people wishing to start families? It is, “Politics is not for you.” This place will be representative of only certain sections of society if we dismiss the role of parenting or undermine it by indicating that the House is only for the big boys or people who can, as the right hon. Member for...

Houses of Parliament (Family-friendliness) — [Fabian Hamilton in the Chair] (10 Nov 2015)

Angela Crawley: I recognise the right hon. Gentleman’s comments, but I do not need a lecture on the geography of this country and how difficult it is for Members from rural and urban communities to get here.

Houses of Parliament (Family-friendliness) — [Fabian Hamilton in the Chair] (10 Nov 2015)

Angela Crawley: I will continue. The right hon. Gentleman’s attitude only reaffirms the need for this debate. To be clear, this is not about questioning the commitment of female Members—or, indeed, any Members—to their jobs. When will this place begin to advocate a greater emphasis on shared parenting or consider additional caring responsibilities? My colleagues on the Women and Equalities...

Scotland Bill (Programme) (No.2): Clause 11 — Scope to modify the Scotland Act 1998 (9 Nov 2015)

Angela Crawley: Does my hon. Friend agree with me and the Equality and Human Rights Commission that devolving power over all equalities to the Scottish Parliament will enable it to legislate to give people an ability to do things that they have never had before?

Scotland Bill (Programme) (No.2): Clause 11 — Scope to modify the Scotland Act 1998 (9 Nov 2015)

Angela Crawley: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

Scotland Bill (Programme) (No.2): Clause 11 — Scope to modify the Scotland Act 1998 (9 Nov 2015)

Angela Crawley: As was made clear in Committee, the Scottish Government have made it clear in no uncertain terms that there are no planned changes to the legislation. On that basis, does the Secretary of State agree that Labour Members undermine their colleagues in the Scottish Parliament by intimating that they cannot legislate on their own matters?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Smith Commission (4 Nov 2015)

Angela Crawley: What assessment he has made of progress in meeting the recommendations of the Smith commission; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Smith Commission (4 Nov 2015)

Angela Crawley: The Smith commission identified that Scotland’s budget should be no larger or smaller simply as a result of the initial transfer of new powers and recommended that the Scottish and UK Governments work together to agree a fiscal and funding framework for Scotland. Will the Secretary of State reassure my constituents that that framework will be in place to accompany the devolution of...

Maternity Discrimination (3 Nov 2015)

Angela Crawley: I appreciate the Minister’s point about large employers, but the vast majority of people work for smaller companies with fewer than 250 employees. Has she considered that those people will be equally affected?

Maternity Discrimination (3 Nov 2015)

Angela Crawley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Bailey. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Cumbernauld, Kilsyth and Kirkintilloch East (Stuart C. McDonald) on securing this important debate, which allows us to highlight the issues faced by pregnant women in the workplace. Legislation has been in place for more than 40 years to protect women from unfair dismissal because of...

Young Jobseekers (27 Oct 2015)

Angela Crawley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gray. I congratulate the hon. Member for Norwich North (Chloe Smith) on securing such an important debate. For any young person who is able to work to be out of a job is tragic. It is tragic for the individual who finds themselves unable to get on in life. It is tragic for their family who have to support and motivate them. It is tragic...

Young Jobseekers (27 Oct 2015)

Angela Crawley: I agree, but when considering whether economic development throughout Scotland is crippling the life chances of young people, we should contrast some of the constituencies represented in this Chamber with some of the constituencies in Scotland, where young people’s life chances are far more limited. I invite the hon. Gentleman to my constituency to see for himself that many young people...
