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...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Employment Tribunal Fees (14 Jun 2016)

Angela Crawley: When he expects the review of employment tribunal fees to be completed.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Employment Tribunal Fees (14 Jun 2016)

Angela Crawley: I received assurances from the Government that the post-implementation review of tribunal fees would be published last year. We now find ourselves six months beyond that deadline, and we are still waiting. Evidence suggests that tribunal fees do act as a barrier to justice and that they are compounding pregnancy and maternity discrimination. While we wait for the Government to get a move on,...

Orlando Attack: Uk Security Measures (13 Jun 2016)

Angela Crawley: May I associate myself with the Home Secretary’s comments and those of other Members? As an out and proud gay woman, I know that the atrocities in Orlando were directed at members of the LGBT community—my community; our communities. This act of clear homophobic hate crime in Orlando must be challenged. It is a stark reminder of the prejudice and discrimination that lesbian, gay,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Unaccompanied Children (Family Reunification) (13 Jun 2016)

Angela Crawley: What steps her Department is taking to accelerate the family reunification process for unaccompanied children in Europe with family in the UK.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Unaccompanied Children (Family Reunification) (13 Jun 2016)

Angela Crawley: May I associate myself with the comments of the Home Secretary and other hon. Members on the homophobic, hate-based atrocity that has taken place in Orlando this week? International Red Cross has stated its concern for children in Dunkirk. It has highlighted the length of the asylum process, the lack of official information and the domination of smugglers as factors that prevent the Dublin...

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...
