Grenfell Tower and Building Safety (5 Sep 2017)

Angela Crawley: Let me again extend my deepest condolences, and those of my party, to the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire and their families. Responding to such a tragic incident is undoubtedly challenging for any Government, but it is also a test of how a Government can react to ensure that we never find ourselves in the same situation again, and I welcome the Secretary of State’s response to...

Women and Equalities: Equality and Women’s Rights: DUP Discussions (6 Jul 2017)

Angela Crawley: I join hon. Members across the House in wishing a happy Pride to all those celebrating London Pride this weekend. Despite the fact that a number of promises were made during the election campaign on the need to strengthen and protect equality legislation, there was no such commitment in this year’s Queen’s Speech. People across this country have deep concerns that the Tory...

Housing and Social Security (22 Jun 2017)

Angela Crawley: I should like to associate myself with the comments made by right hon. and hon. Members across the House about the tragic incident at Grenfell Tower. We on these Benches welcome the inquiry and believe that lessons must be learned from this event. This Queen’s Speech seems to me to be one of the most shambolic and lame legislative programmes in my lifetime. The Tories, cowed by their...

Housing and Social Security (22 Jun 2017)

Angela Crawley: Absolutely. Statistics already show that over 80% of the cuts fall on women. That is simply not good enough.

Housing and Social Security (22 Jun 2017)

Angela Crawley: I need to make some progress. The UK Government are fixated on a failed Brexit strategy and intent on damaging the economy and threatening jobs—so much so that they have cancelled next year’s legislative programme. In closing, my call to Government Members is this: stop being fixated on fighting with the EU and get on with your day job of governing this country.

The Minister for Women and Equalities Was Asked: Universal Credit (23 Mar 2017)

Angela Crawley: May I, too, associate myself with the comments made by right hon. and hon. Members from across the House? The Prime Minister wants to transform the way in which we think about domestic violence, and I am sure that the Minister supports her in those efforts, but does the Minister accept that that is completely undermined by introducing the rape clause without parliamentary scrutiny? Will she...

Maternity Discrimination — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (15 Mar 2017)

Angela Crawley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Chope. I congratulate the hon. Member for Washington and Sunderland West (Mrs Hodgson) on securing this debate. We have debated this issue before, but it is welcome that we are doing so again. As she highlighted, the Government’s failure to take action and level the playing field for the many women who experience maternity...

International Women’S Day (2 Mar 2017)

Angela Crawley: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Birmingham, Yardley (Jess Phillips), the right hon. Member for Basingstoke (Mrs Miller) and all the female Members who have spoken in the debate so far. Notwithstanding the hon. Member for Shipley (Philip Davies), it is a shame that there are not more men participating in this debate—[Interruption.] I am pleased that he has saved us all...

PRAYERS - [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] : Fathers in the Family (1 Mar 2017)

Angela Crawley: Does my hon. Friend agree that all the evidence from the work of the Women and Equalities Committee—including the gender pay gap report, the pregnancy and maternity discrimination report and the current fathers and the workplace inquiry—outlines that there is an economic benefit to fathers playing an active role in their children’s lives?

LGBT History Month — [Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (28 Feb 2017)

Angela Crawley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairship, Ms Dorries. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Dumfries and Galloway (Richard Arkless) on securing this debate. He is indeed a champion of equality for all. This debate gives us the opportunity, before the end of the month, to celebrate in the House the successes in the struggle for LGBTI equality in the UK. It also gives us the...

Business of the House (23 Feb 2017)

Angela Crawley: The Leader of the House will be aware of his Government’s policy of taxing victims of domestic abuse for using the Child Maintenance Service. Women’s groups, charities and members of the public have said that the tax puts single parents and children at risk. Some 30% of CMS users are victims of domestic violence, and tens of thousands of women are losing money because they cannot...

Jamal Al-Harith (23 Feb 2017)

Angela Crawley: I associate myself with the comments made by the right hon. Member for Normanton, Pontefract and Castleford (Yvette Cooper). The Scottish National party is of course committed to protecting the people of Scotland and keeping our communities safe, while recognising that that commitment needs to be balanced with the protection of civil liberties. We recognise that the ways in which people are...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Human Rights Act 1998 (24 Jan 2017)

Angela Crawley: What recent progress she has made on the Government’s plans to replace the Human Rights Act 1998.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Human Rights Act 1998 (24 Jan 2017)

Angela Crawley: In September, the Secretary of State said that she was expecting to meet the Scottish Justice Minister to discuss the repeal of the Human Rights Act in Scotland. How does she plan to guarantee that the proposed British Bill of Rights will not compromise the autonomy of the Scottish legal system?

Un International Day: Violence Against Women (8 Dec 2016)

Angela Crawley: Does the hon. Lady accept that here in the UK, young girls, during what is known as “cutting season”, are taken to their home countries for FGM and then returned to the UK, and that that practice must also be stopped?

Un International Day: Violence Against Women (8 Dec 2016)

Angela Crawley: I commend hon. Friends and colleagues for their incredibly powerful contributions. I congratulate the hon. Members for Feltham and Heston (Seema Malhotra), for Stretford and Urmston (Kate Green), for Maidstone and The Weald (Mrs Grant) and for Brighton, Pavilion (Caroline Lucas) and the right hon. Member for Basingstoke (Mrs Miller) on supporting this Backbench Business debate. It is...

Un International Day: Violence Against Women (8 Dec 2016)

Angela Crawley: I welcome every single effort across the UK to eradicate violence and to raise awareness of this important subject, This year’s UNiTE 16 days of action seek to raise funds to resource the services that do vital work each and every day to end violence against women and girls, in response to a major shortfall in resources and tightening budgets; the campaign is doing all it can to raise...

Attorney General: Criminal Corporate Liability (8 Dec 2016)

Angela Crawley: During the passage of the Criminal Finances Bill, the Government have so far refused to extend corporate economic crime beyond tax evasion. Does the Attorney General agree that companies should only be criminally liable for failure to prevent tax evasion?

Women and Equalities: State Pension Age (8 Dec 2016)

Angela Crawley: With the effects of austerity being felt disproportionately by women, another Government policy affecting women is the 4% tax on child maintenance. Does the Minister accept that this places an additional tax on survivors of domestic violence, and will she ensure that that is addressed?

Benefit Claimants Sanctions (Required Assessment) Bill (2 Dec 2016)

Angela Crawley: I have a copy of the Bill, and the hon. Lady may wish to have one to hand. It states: “Before sanctions or reductions…may be imposed…an assessment of the relevant circumstances” or “conditions…found to be satisfied” are required. That is what the Bill asks for. Will the hon. Lady speak to the Bill itself?
