Concentrix: Tax Credit Claimants — [Mr David Nuttall in the Chair] (18 Oct 2016)

Angela Crawley: Does the right hon. Lady agree that the UK Government have prioritised austerity measures? More than 80% of women have been adversely affected by this austerity-driven Government’s welfare reforms and cuts.

Petition - Implementation of the 1995 and 2011 Pension Acts (11 Oct 2016)

Angela Crawley: I rise to present this petition on behalf of the residents of Lanark and Hamilton East in the same terms as the hon. Member for Worsley and Eccles South. On behalf of the thousands of WASPI women, and in the spirit of true equality, I call on the Government to hear their voices and take action now. The Petition of residents of Lanark and Hamilton East. [P001768]

Cross-departmental Strategy on Social Justice — [Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (14 Sep 2016)

Angela Crawley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Dorries. I congratulate the hon. Member for Congleton (Fiona Bruce) on securing this debate on an important matter that has such wide-reaching consequences that I feel a debate in this Chamber simply does not do it justice. I am sure there will be another opportunity to have this debate on the Floor of the House. When the hon. Lady...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Hinkley Point C (13 Sep 2016)

Angela Crawley: When the Government plans to make a decision on the timetable for the development of Hinkley Point C.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Hinkley Point C (13 Sep 2016)

Angela Crawley: On my recent summer surgery tour of my constituency, a number of constituents raised concerns about the cost to the taxpayer of the Hinkley Point C development. Barclays estimates that even if EDF delivers four years later and 25% over budget, it would still make a profit on the deal, with the deficit being picked up by ordinary people over the next 35 years. Does the Minister think that such...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (6 Sep 2016)

Angela Crawley: I received assurances from the Government that the post-implementation review of tribunal fees would be published late last year. Nine months on and after thousands more discrimination cases, we are still waiting. Why has it taken so long for the Government to get a move on and publish the review? Will the Government follow the Scottish Government by abolishing tribunal fees completely—that...

Women and Equalities: Welfare Policy: Gender Equality (21 Jul 2016)

Angela Crawley: I welcome the Secretary of State and Ministers, new and existing, to their places. Prior to Brexit, the Secretary of State said that leaving the EU would cost the economy “a £36bn hit to tax receipts every year - it won’t just be public services squeezed, it will be our jobs, especially the livelihoods of people on lower incomes.” We already know that 80% of welfare cuts fall on women....

Online Child Abuse (20 Jul 2016)

Angela Crawley: I welcome you to your post, Mrs Moon, and I welcome the Minister and the shadow Minister to theirs. It is excellent to see strong and confident women in those positions and I am sure they will take their challenges and responsibilities seriously. I congratulate the hon. Member for Rotherham (Sarah Champion) on securing the debate on an issue that she has worked and campaigned tirelessly on,...

Online Child Abuse (20 Jul 2016)

Angela Crawley: Forgive me, Mrs Moon. I will close by simply saying that, to tackle this problem and the scale of it, we must collaborate and co-operate with one another.

Terrorist Attack: Nice: UK's Nuclear Deterrent (18 Jul 2016)

Angela Crawley: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Terrorist Attack: Nice: UK's Nuclear Deterrent (18 Jul 2016)

Angela Crawley: Does my hon. Friend agree that, ultimately, the Government should prioritise their spending on intelligence and national security to combat terrorism and cyber-security issues, rather than on nuclear weapons that can never be used?

Terrorist Attack: Nice: UK's Nuclear Deterrent (18 Jul 2016)

Angela Crawley: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Terrorist Attack: Nice: UK's Nuclear Deterrent (18 Jul 2016)

Angela Crawley: rose—

Courts and Tribunals Fees (4 Jul 2016)

Angela Crawley: I shall focus on three key points that are essential to this debate—the fundamental principle of access to justice, the clear fact that the introduction of fees is a barrier for women who are pregnant or experiencing maternity discrimination, and the post-implementation review of the introduction of tribunal fees. I am sure the Minister will pay close attention. Employment tribunal fees...

Courts and Tribunals Fees (4 Jul 2016)

Angela Crawley: I am sorry, Madam Deputy Speaker. If the Minister addressed each of those points in turn, I would be eternally grateful. The conclusion I would like to draw is that the introduction of fees is a fundamental barrier to access to justice for not only women but all workers. The simple fact is that the time limit could be extended, and that should readily be considered. I hope the Government will...

Courts and Tribunals Fees (4 Jul 2016)

Angela Crawley: The Minister proves my point: budget deficit reduction should never come above access to justice. With no financial penalty, Scottish women may soon face fewer barriers when they exercise their employment rights and seek access to justice. The same may not be said for other women across the UK. It is time for someone to stand up for hard-working women and other workers across this country and...

Courts and Tribunals Fees (4 Jul 2016)

Angela Crawley: Does the hon. Gentleman accept that if the employer is given an unfair financial position or advantage over the claimant, ultimately, regardless of whether it is a big or a small firm, the greatest cost will be borne by claimants themselves?

Hate Crime (29 Jun 2016)

Angela Crawley: May I associate myself with the comments of hon. Members across the House, and offer my sincere condolences to those affected by the tragic incident in Istanbul? Reports of a huge increase in racist abuse since the EU referendum are concerning, abhorrent and unacceptable, and we have witnessed a 57% rise in xenophobic attacks in the past week. In the wake of the particularly vicious and...

Independent Advocates for Trafficked Children — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (28 Jun 2016)

Angela Crawley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Streeter. I congratulate the right hon. Member for Slough (Fiona Mactaggart), who has been an advocate of this issue for many years. This important issue is vital to children, so I do not intend to be political in my contribution today. I intend to enhance the debate and contribute some of the thoughts from Scotland. I want to make it...

Independent Advocates for Trafficked Children — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (28 Jun 2016)

Angela Crawley: I thank the Minister for that intervention. I should have added “as it is in England and Wales” after “life imprisonment”, just to be absolutely clear. Scotland has sent out a message that trafficking will not be tolerated under any circumstances and I urge the UK to do that also. That legislation also underpins the need for independent advocates. It places a duty to ensure...
