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?

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

Angela Crawley: I thank the hon. Gentleman for giving way during his extended speech. He might as well be reading from a cookery book, because you are adding nothing new to this debate. Sixty-five per cent. of claims have to be overturned as a result of this failed system, so does the hon. Gentleman accept that what he refers to as the fractional percentage of people who commit fraud is far outweighed by the...

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

Angela Crawley: Earlier in the week, I spoke in a debate on employment and support allowance and personal independence payments. More than 65% of decisions are overturned on appeal, which means that your Government’s system is broken. Over 80% of the claims affect women who are predominantly single parents. Your system—the Government’s system—is broken.

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

Angela Crawley: May I add to that the fact that women are, unfortunately, unable to access sanitary provision? As a result, they are reliant on the “big society”, as Government Members refer to it. Food banks provide tampons and sanitary products to women who cannot afford to buy those simple products because the Government’s sanctions regime penalises them.

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

Angela Crawley: May I add another example? A constituent of mine with three young children approached me to tell me about her issue with Concentrix in November last year, when she was sanctioned for six weeks over Christmas. Her children went without at Christmas as a result of this Government’s policy, only to discover that that was later overturned. This is a Government who allow families to go...

Backbench Business: Transgender Equality (1 Dec 2016)

Angela Crawley: On that specific point, will the Minister meet Angela Constance, the Cabinet Secretary for Communities, Social Security and Equalities in the Scottish Government, to have that discussion, given that Scotland is now embarking on that process? Perhaps there could be a shared learning experience to ensure that we take matters forward for trans equality.

Backbench Business: Transgender Equality (1 Dec 2016)

Angela Crawley: Ireland, Denmark, Malta, Norway, Argentina and Colombia—and soon Scotland, I should add—already recognise the process of self-declaration. Will the UK follow their example?

Backbench Business: Transgender Equality (1 Dec 2016)

Angela Crawley: The Committee heard from individuals who had gone through harrowing experiences. They had gone to quite extreme lengths to receive the treatment that they wanted in order to have their gender identity recognised in countries where the practices were not as safe as they would be here in the UK. Does the hon. Lady therefore support the aim that the UK must ensure that we can cater for everyone...

Backbench Business: Transgender Equality (1 Dec 2016)

Angela Crawley: I thank the Backbench Business Committee for accepting this debate, which gives us an opportunity to discuss the Government’s response to the “Transgender Equality” report. I should also like to thank LGBT Youth Scotland, Stonewall, the UK LGBT Consortium on Trans Organisations, the Equality Network and the Scottish Transgender Alliance. I also want specifically to thank Tim...

Backbench Business: Transgender Equality (1 Dec 2016)

Angela Crawley: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention. I reiterate that the law must be updated to recognise an individual’s gender identity, which has nothing to do with their birth gender and everything to do with the gender that they believe they are.
