Age Discrimination: National Living Wage (8 Jun 2016)

Angela Crawley: As always, Mr Davies, it is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship. I thank the hon. Member for Halifax (Holly Lynch), who truly has been a champion on this issue, and there is no doubt that we share the same interest in addressing it. I have made this point before, but I will make it again to echo the sentiments expressed by the hon. Lady. She said that this is not a national living...

Support for Life-shortening Conditions — [Andrew Percy in the Chair] (7 Jun 2016)

Angela Crawley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Percy, in your new appointment. I congratulate the hon. Member for Pudsey (Stuart Andrew) on securing this debate and I apologise in advance that I may need to leave a little bit early to attend the Women and Equalities Committee. The provision of support for children whose lives are shortened by illness is a difficult issue to discuss....

Women and Equalities: Employment: Women Returnees (26 May 2016)

Angela Crawley: While this Government have cut workers’ rights, attacked trade unions’ ability to organise and legislated to block women’s access to justice, the EU has protected maternity rights, strengthened paternity rights and upheld our fundamental rights. Does the Minister agree that EU membership will protect rights for women returning to employment?

Domestic Violence Refuges — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (11 May 2016)

Angela Crawley: Will the Minister give way?

Domestic Violence Refuges — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (11 May 2016)

Angela Crawley: I thank the Minister for giving way, given that my speaking time was so reduced. The point about female empowerment and the importance of educating young girls and teaching young boys about respecting women and girls is well made. To come back to the point of the debate—I am sure the Minister is going to do so—what are the Government planning to do to make these refuges exempt...

Domestic Violence Refuges — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (11 May 2016)

Angela Crawley: If that was not an incentive to speed up and allow the Minister plenty of time, I do not know what is. First, I congratulate the hon. Member for Burnley (Julie Cooper) on securing the debate, which gives us a chance to discuss something that we have discussed many times in the Chamber, but we have not yet got to the nub of the issue. Before I start, I want to say a few things. First, I thank...

Domestic Violence Refuges — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (11 May 2016)

Angela Crawley: Absolutely. I know at first hand that many of the women who work in these services—it is predominantly women who work in such services—are the ones who struggle to make ends meet and put food on the table, as well as to support the women who need their vital support. If the Government intend to continue to cut, cut, cut, at what point will they focus on the big-picture politics...

Backbench Business - Universal Credit (Children)Backbench Business (10 May 2016)

Angela Crawley: A single parent already working full time on the national living wage—otherwise known as a modern increase on the minimum wage—of £7.20 an hour will have to work an additional 46 days a year, equating to two additional months. Does my hon. Friend agree that that is unacceptable?

Backbench Business - Universal Credit (Children)Backbench Business (10 May 2016)

Angela Crawley: When the Government announced their plans to introduce universal credit, their rationale was to lift people out of poverty and help them into work. It was billed as a mechanism to end cycles of poverty and to help parents to give their children the best start in life. In 2011, the Government forecast that universal credit would lift 350,000 children out of poverty. In 2013, this was...

Backbench Business - Universal Credit (Children)Backbench Business (10 May 2016)

Angela Crawley: I wholeheartedly agree with my hon. Friend. This Government have absolutely no right or reason to dictate to families how many children they ought to have, or to place a monetary value on a child’s life or someone’s livelihood. This Government have scrapped the first child premium, worth £545 a year. That is the equivalent of the family element in tax credits, which was...

Backbench Business: Unaccompanied Children — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (19 Apr 2016)

Angela Crawley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Vaz. I thank the hon. Member for Enfield, Southgate (Mr Burrowes) for securing this important debate. Given the dramatic rise in the number of children travelling through Europe in recent years, it is impossible to remove emotion from the debate. Too often, too many children are left unaccounted for and unrecognised in a system that...

National Living Wage (18 Apr 2016)

Angela Crawley: I congratulate the hon. Member for Mitcham and Morden (Siobhain McDonagh) on securing this debate, and I wish her well with her recovery. I am only sorry that she could not be in the Chamber to deliver her speech, but I thank the right hon. Member for Enfield North (Joan Ryan) for opening the debate. As a signatory to this motion, I want to recognise that the idea of a living wage sounds...

National Living Wage (18 Apr 2016)

Angela Crawley: We can agree that workers deserve a real living wage, but this is not a real living wage. To go back to my argument, it is merely an enhanced minimum wage. While I would welcome a living wage, this does not meet the mark. Sadly, this does not even apply to those under 25. Try telling a 17-year-old part-time worker that their work is of less value than that of someone who is a few years older....

National Living Wage (18 Apr 2016)

Angela Crawley: Although it will always be welcome if people have more pennies in their pocket, the Government are not looking at the full picture. When cuts to universal credit outweigh any benefit from the so-called national living wage, how can it be defended as a national living wage at all?

National Living Wage (18 Apr 2016)

Angela Crawley: I thank the hon. Gentleman for making that valid point. Despite the Chancellor’s claim that the lowest-paid workers need a pay rise—indeed, they do deserve a pay rise—his actions will result in the rich getting richer while people in low-wage jobs see no real benefit. Indeed, they will experience an erosion of any employer benefits that they once had. It is telling that the...

Backbench Business: HIV: Women and Girls — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (12 Apr 2016)

Angela Crawley: I want to highlight again the need to educate men and boys on their role as community leaders, partners, fathers and brothers, because they also have a role to play in education.

Backbench Business: HIV: Women and Girls — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (12 Apr 2016)

Angela Crawley: It is a pleasure to speak in the debate and to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Buck. We are discussing HIV, which curses the lives of people in all walks of life across the globe. Yet many of the women who are infected are unaware of the status of their condition and are unable to access the treatment that they rightly need to go on to live a long and sustained life. I thank the hon....
