February Adjournment (13 Feb 2020)

Carolyn Harris: I, too, congratulate the hon. Members for Bosworth (Dr Evans), for Wrexham (Sarah Atherton) and for Guildford (Angela Richardson) on their eloquent and passionate speeches.

Carolyn Harris: As chair of the all-party group for gambling related harm, I am delighted that the Government have adopted so many of our recommendations over the last 18 months.

Attorney General: Female Genital Mutilation: Prosecutions (13 Feb 2020)

Carolyn Harris: The lack of services to support the victims of female genital mutilation is often seen as a reason why so many cases are left unreported. What effect does the Attorney General—whoever that might be—think the cuts to the Crown Prosecution Service have had on the reporting of FGM cases?

Home Department: County Lines: Exploitation of Children (10 Feb 2020)

Carolyn Harris: With no statutory definition of “child criminal exploitation”, different safeguarding agencies and police forces understand the risks differently, but county lines exploitation is everywhere. In order to comply with Her Majesty’s inspectorate of constabulary’s recommendation that we need a unified definition in law of child criminal exploitation, when can we expect such an...

Historical Stillbirth Burials and Cremations (6 Feb 2020)

Carolyn Harris: I would like to take the opportunity to thank the Leader of the House for allocating time for this debate and to warmly thank everyone for their kind words about the work that I have done. This place is at its best when we show compassion and work together to resolve the issues that matter to people. The work that we have done on children’s funerals—on what I like to call Martin’s...

Historical Stillbirth Burials and Cremations (6 Feb 2020)

Carolyn Harris: I certainly agree. I think the consensus in this Chamber—and some news channels, no doubt—will prompt local authorities, hospitals and other people to come forward and offer us the information we need. Like my own mother, many have gone to their graves without knowing the locations of their babies. Many more are alive and still suffering from the grief and guilt, and very often from...

Defence: Topical Questions (3 Feb 2020)

Carolyn Harris: Sergeant Michael Rowley served his country for 25 years. As a result of combat-related post-traumatic stress disorder, he started drinking heavily and gambling—not an uncommon story. The charity Help a Squaddie helped Michael to get his life back together, but many are not so fortunate. What are the Government doing specifically to help victims who are at risk of or struggling with those...

Industrial and Commercial Waste Incineration (28 Jan 2020)

Carolyn Harris: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hosie. Like me, my hon. Friend the Member for Cardiff South and Penarth (Stephen Doughty) has a proposed site for a new incinerator in south Wales in his constituency. I therefore thank him for securing this important debate. Clarion Close in Llansamlet, in my constituency, is on the Swansea Enterprise Park, at the heart of a small...

Wuhan Coronavirus: Holocaust Memorial Day (23 Jan 2020)

Carolyn Harris: I congratulate the hon.

I am honoured to have sat next to my hon. Friend the Member for Leeds North East (Fabian Hamilton) and witnessed his speech. His testimony was mesmerising and truly humbling. I...

Women and Equalities: State Pension Age Increase: Transitional Arrangements (23 Jan 2020)

Carolyn Harris: The appeal speaks for some of the groups of 1950s women, but certainly not all, and colleagues—both retreads and newbies—will by now have heard from women with different perspectives, all of whom will have a suggestion on how we resolve the issue. The appeal is silencing as many voices as it is speaking for, if not more. How can the silenced women be heard? They too are desperate, and...

Business of the House (16 Jan 2020)

Carolyn Harris: Having previously thanked the UK, Welsh and Scottish Governments for Martin’s funeral fund, I wish to add my thanks to the Government of Northern Ireland, who introduced it after the reconvening of Stormont. The Children’s Funeral Fund is now in every corner of the United Kingdom. Unfortunately, when I was burying my son, parents who had stillbirth babies did not have the opportunity to...

The Secretary of State was asked: Perinatal Women: Custodial Settings (14 Jan 2020)

Carolyn Harris: The current review of the operational guidance for the mother and baby units is welcome, but guidance is not enough. Will the Minister agree to meet me and the charity Birth Companions to discuss the recommendations in its new birth charter toolkit and the need for mandatory standards, so that prisons are scrutinised and indeed held to account for perinatal care?

Football Association and Bet365 (9 Jan 2020)

Carolyn Harris: (Urgent Question): To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport if he will make a statement on the deal between the Football Association and Bet365.

Football Association and Bet365 (9 Jan 2020)

Carolyn Harris: Problem gambling in the UK is now so endemic that it should be treated as a public health crisis. It causes untold misery to those affected and their families. Too many times, I have sat with men and women who are cursed with an addiction and who are battling mental health issues. Too many times, I have listened to the heart-wrenching grief of a partner, sibling or parent whose loved one has...
