Oral Answers to Questions — Health: NHS Efficiency Savings (7 Jul 2015)

Margaret Greenwood: The Secretary of State will be aware that Sir Robert Francis specifically recommended that the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence provide guidance on safe staffing levels because it is independent and can establish guidance based on the needs of patients. The Government’s decision to suspend that work and transfer responsibility to NHS England has been met with criticism...

Isil: Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (13 Jul 2015)

Wirral West has areas of great prosperity, but it also has areas of deprivation...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Prison Education (8 Sep 2015)

Margaret Greenwood: In a Prisoners Education Trust survey, 83% of prisoners said that access to the virtual campus was poor. That is hardly surprising, given that prison staffing levels have fallen almost 30% since 2010. If the Secretary of State really wants to improve education provision in prisons, what is he going to do address that?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (14 Sep 2015)

Margaret Greenwood: Over the last Parliament, the local government funding settlement for Wirral Borough Council was reduced by 18% in real terms. If the Government cut that by a further 40% during the current Parliament, as they are considering doing, the council will have suffered a real-terms cut of 54% by 2020. How can it provide an adequate level of public services if its contribution from the Government is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Trade Union Bill (14 Sep 2015)

Margaret Greenwood: I would like to declare myself as a proud trade unionist all my working life. I am grateful for the support that I have received from the trade union movement. I believe that this Bill is designed to restrict and undermine the role that trade unions play in our society by making it harder for working people to organise in the workplace. It seeks to do so by tying trade unions up in an...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Police and Crime Commissioners (12 Oct 2015)

Margaret Greenwood: It is anticipated that Government cuts to Merseyside police could reach £27 million next year. This has been brought to my notice by the police and crime commissioner for Merseyside. Police community support officers and the mounted police section are under threat of disappearing altogether. Teams tackling sex offences, hate crimes and serious and organised crime are also likely to be...

Welfare Benefit Changes — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (14 Oct 2015)

Margaret Greenwood: I commend my hon. Friend the Member for Swansea East (Carolyn Harris) on securing this important debate. The Government’s study identified that more than 330,000 children from low-income families in England will be hit by the benefits cap and that a couple with two children will be priced out of being able to rent a two-bedroom property in almost all areas of the south of England and...

Hospital Parking Charges (Exemption for Carers) Bill (30 Oct 2015)

Margaret Greenwood: Does my hon. Friend agree that carers provide an invaluable service to the people they care for, doing day-to-day tasks such as washing and feeding, and providing friendship and social interaction? All the things they do behind the scenes they do out of love, but in doing so they are working very hard for wider society. As that society, we should, in turn, support them.

Opposition Day — [9th Allotted Day]: Policing (4 Nov 2015)

[Mr George Howarth in the Chair] — Women and Low Pay (18 Nov 2015)

Margaret Greenwood: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this important debate. Does she agree that, with 4.1 million children now living in poverty, tackling women’s low pay is a crucial part of improving the opportunities of those young people?

[Mr George Howarth in the Chair] — Women and Low Pay (18 Nov 2015)

Margaret Greenwood: Does my hon. Friend agree that the fact that women in their 50s earn 18% less than men not only is an injustice for those women, but really reflects a failure of our society to harness all the expertise and knowledge of those women? That shortcoming as a society has an impact on our economy.

[Mr George Howarth in the Chair] — Women and Low Pay (18 Nov 2015)

Margaret Greenwood: Some years ago, I was fortunate enough to have a job teaching on a “women back to work” programme. The vast majority of the women were divorced. It was a really fantastic experience for me to see how quickly they improved their skills and educational base in a very short space of time. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that it is very important to provide training and educational...
