Vauxhall Factory, Ellesmere Port: Scottish Welfare Powers (20 Mar 2018)

Margaret Greenwood: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Rosindell. I welcome this debate, and I thank the hon. Member for Ayr, Carrick and Cumnock (Bill Grant) for securing it. It is important that we debate the impact of the Westminster Government’s cuts to the social security system in Scotland and the whole of the UK. Although the Scottish Government’s response takes steps in...

Vauxhall Factory, Ellesmere Port: Scottish Welfare Powers (20 Mar 2018)

Margaret Greenwood: My hon. Friend makes a really important point, but I am so short of time. In Scotland, some 50,000 households with three or more children are in receipt of tax credits. From April 2017, families no longer received support through child tax credits or universal credit for any third or subsequent child born on or after that date. That also applies to new UC claims. On top of that, the abolition...

Orkambi and Cystic Fibrosis — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (19 Mar 2018)

Margaret Greenwood: My hon. Friend is making a really good speech. A constituent—a proud and loving grandad—came to my surgery with two sets of photographs of his granddaughter, who is nearly six. One photograph was of a lively little girl, full of energy, and the other was of all the medication that she has to take every single day. The imagery could not have been starker. Does my hon. Friend agree...

Women and Work — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (14 Mar 2018)

Margaret Greenwood: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir David. I congratulate the hon. Member for Redditch (Rachel Maclean) on securing this really important debate and on her wide-ranging speech. It is clear from the contributions we have heard that we are all aware of the importance of equality, to put it in a nutshell, and I thank the hon. Member for Edinburgh North and Leith (Deidre...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Bus Journeys (1 Mar 2018)

Margaret Greenwood: Recent devolution deals have seen the power to re-regulate buses, via London-style franchising, devolved to areas such as my own that have a metro mayor. Can the Minister tell me how the Government plan to support those metro mayors who make the local democratic choice to franchise their bus networks so that local passengers can get the routes that they need?

Petition - Removal of Royal Mail Postal Collection: Eating Disorders Awareness Week (27 Feb 2018)

Margaret Greenwood: One of my constituents is an ambassador for Beat, and I met her recently. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that one of the organisation’s strengths is that it draws on people who have been through the experience, so they can speak knowingly and convincingly to people they recognise as being in the same situation that they were in not that long ago?

Backbench Business: Child Poverty: London (22 Feb 2018)

Margaret Greenwood: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Henry. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Mitcham and Morden (Siobhain McDonagh) on securing such an important debate. I have been struck by the passion and clear sense of all the speeches we have heard from Members championing the need to improve the situation of those in poverty. From the stories my hon. Friend told about...

Medicines and Medical Devices Safety Review (21 Feb 2018)

Margaret Greenwood: Campaigners on Primodos will be hugely disappointed by the Secretary of State’s statement and his failure to recognise the concerns they have raised about the expert working group. That aside, how many patients does he envisage being involved in the review, and how does he believe that they will be best accessed to ensure that those people who are quiet actually have their voices heard?

Post-18 Education (20 Feb 2018)

Margaret Greenwood: The creative industries generate more than £90 billion for the UK economy. Assessing the value of a university degree course on graduate salary or outcomes risks undermining that important sector. What will the Secretary of State do to ensure that we support universities in producing world-class arts graduates?

Backbench Business: Strengthening Families — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (8 Feb 2018)

Margaret Greenwood: When the Minister is talking about values as a society, will he set out for us what his Government are going to do to tackle child poverty, which is set to rise to 5 million?

Backbench Business: Strengthening Families — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (8 Feb 2018)

Margaret Greenwood: Will the Minister give way?

Backbench Business: Strengthening Families — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (8 Feb 2018)

Margaret Greenwood: I thank the Minister for giving way and I take on board your comment, Ms Buck, but I would say that the debate is cross-departmental and the document does refer to health. Accountable care systems or integrated care systems are suggesting bundling together budgets for the hospitals, the GPs, community health, public health and local authority spending of one area—Wirral, for...

Backbench Business: Strengthening Families — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (8 Feb 2018)

Margaret Greenwood: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Buck. I congratulate the hon. Member for Congleton (Fiona Bruce) on securing the debate.

I was particularly pleased to hear many speakers talk of the importance of the role of fathers and the value to...

Backbench Business: Strengthening Families — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (8 Feb 2018)

Margaret Greenwood: I notice the hon. Lady says it is “a” root cause, which is a helpful context, but we cannot get away from the power of poverty to damage family relationships. We all know that from our own lives and our surgeries, and it is important that we bear that in mind. “A Manifesto to Strengthen Families” was published by a group of Conservative MPs and peers in September 2017....
