Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (23 Jun 2015)

Corri Wilson: Following the question asked by the hon. Member for Newcastle upon Tyne Central (Chi Onwurah) on freedom of information, does the Secretary of State intend to introduce legislation on proposals to price out FOI requests and extend the ministerial veto, which my party would oppose, and will he give us a timetable for that?

Opposition Day — [5th Allotted Day]: Tax Credits (Working Families) (7 Jul 2015)

Corri Wilson: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker, for giving me this opportunity to make my maiden speech today. Like others before me, I would like to thank the House staff for being incredibly helpful, with a huge thank you to Estelle, who was assigned the onerous task of stopping me getting lost in all the nooks and crannies. She has been an enormous help to me over the past few weeks. I would not be here...

[Albert Owen in the Chair] — Affordable Housing (London) (9 Sep 2015)

Corri Wilson: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Owen. I thank the hon. Member for Croydon South (Chris Philp) for securing the debate and bringing the matter to the House for discussion. As a new MP looking for a flat in London, I encountered some of the problems that have been talked about today. The number of people living in London has increased by a fifth, while the number of homes...

[Albert Owen in the Chair] — Affordable Housing (London) (9 Sep 2015)

Corri Wilson: Absolutely. In Scotland, we have shown that investment in affordable housing can keep costs down, create jobs and, importantly, help people to live better lives. As has been mentioned, it is not only about buying. We have actually taken over abandoned properties, repaired them, brought them up to housing standard and let them out. The SNP MPs in Westminster will push for a funding boost for...

[Steve McCabe in the Chair] — Term-time Leave (26 Oct 2015)

Corri Wilson: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship for the rest of this debate, Mr Hanson. I also thank the hon. Member for St Austell and Newquay (Steve Double) for introducing the debate; excellent points have been made throughout it. The petition was brought about as a result of regulations that were first laid before Parliament on 4 April 2013. They went through Parliament on the nod,...

Royal Assent: Childcare Bill [Lords] (25 Nov 2015)

Corri Wilson: The Under-Secretary of State for Education, Lord Nash, stated in the other place that this Government are committed to supporting working families and that their focus is “unashamedly on children and their parents.”—[ Official Report, House of Lords, 14 October 2015; Vol. 765, c. 238.] I have some issues with that statement. Unlike this Government, the SNP is committed to improving and...

Royal Assent: Childcare Bill [Lords] (25 Nov 2015)

Corri Wilson: I want to make some progress, if the hon. Lady does not mind. To truly focus unashamedly on children, the Government should be using this Bill to improve outcomes for all children, especially those who are more vulnerable or disadvantaged, and to support parents to work, train or study, especially those who need routes into sustainable employment and out of poverty. Instead, the Bill excludes...

Benefit Sanctions (2 Dec 2015)

Corri Wilson: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Dorries. The UK Government brought in the sanctions regime to tackle the perceived culture of worklessness, which they used to justify the introduction of sanctions and conditionality as measures to change people’s behaviour and to incentivise people to find work. However, as I have recently been involved in the Welfare Reform and Work...

Opposition Day — [16th Allotted Day] — Student Maintenance Grants: Cost of Public Transport (19 Jan 2016)

Corri Wilson: Transport is essential in providing people with access to work, learning, healthcare, food shops and leisure activities, especially in rural constituencies such as mine. But the reality is that the elderly, the young and the unemployed, who rely on public transport, struggle to reach hospitals, schools, jobcentres and the like. Because of cost and accessibility, most rural households are...

[Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] — Donald Trump (18 Jan 2016)

Corri Wilson: Ayr, Carrick and Cumnock, the constituency I am honoured to represent in this House, is a diverse bit of Scotland incorporating bustling towns, picturesque villages and rolling countryside. It is famous for its rugged coastline and stunning beaches, and for being the birthplace of Scotland’s national bard some 257 years ago next week. It is also home to one of the world’s earliest and...

[Nadine Dorries in the Chair] — Under-occupancy Penalty (23 Feb 2016)

Corri Wilson: I welcome this debate, which was secured by the hon. Member for Cardiff Central (Jo Stevens). We already know that the bedroom tax is nothing more than an ideological attempt to reduce the housing benefit bill and make better use of social housing stock by penalising low-income households deemed to be under-occupying their homes, but the problem of under-occupation will not be solved by...

[Nadine Dorries in the Chair] — Under-occupancy Penalty (23 Feb 2016)

Corri Wilson: I absolutely agree with the hon. Gentleman. People find themselves in a vicious circle and can never see the end. That is the problem. In other words, we are putting people through absolute misery for nothing. As we have heard, the Government tell us that discretionary housing payments are available to tackle the shortfall, but Shelter says that that provision is already overstretched. With...

Motability Car Scheme (23 Feb 2016)

Corri Wilson: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Kilmarnock and Loudoun (Alan Brown) for securing this important debate. I represent the neighbouring constituency of Ayr, Carrick and Cumnock, which is not only a beautiful part of the world but is populated by many inspiring and talented people, such as Kayleigh Haggo. Kayleigh is an exceptional young lady who, through hard work and dedication, has...

Crohn’s and Colitis Treatment: England (24 Feb 2016)

Corri Wilson: I congratulate the hon. Member for St Albans (Mrs Main) on securing this important debate. Helping to increase the understanding and awareness of Crohn’s and colitis is of huge importance to the 300,000 people across the UK who suffer from one of those complex, lifelong and potentially life-threatening diseases. It is thought that as many as 26,000 people in Scotland have Crohn’s or...

[Mr David Nuttall in the Chair] — BT Service Standards (9 Mar 2016)

Corri Wilson: My constituency of Ayr, Carrick and Cumnock is predominantly rural, although it hosts a number of small towns, the biggest of which is Ayr, where my constituency office is located. Ayr is home to some 47,000 people—the eighth highest population of any town in Scotland—and is less than 40 miles from Scotland’s largest city, Glasgow. We have a lot to offer visitors and businesses alike,...

Backbench Business: Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (12 Apr 2016)

Corri Wilson: I congratulate the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon) on securing this important debate. I am not sure that there is a scarier disease out there. This is a disease where a person loses their mind, no longer remembers who they are or who their family and close friends are, and lives in a world of isolation where they are constantly trying to make sense of what is happening around them....

UK Dairy Sector — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (20 Apr 2016)

Corri Wilson: My constituency is predominantly rural. Dairy farming is at the heart of Ayrshire, so I am pleased to have the opportunity to speak in this debate. Ayrshire is home to the famous Ayrshire cattle and has been described as the dairy of Scotland. That claim is now in jeopardy, as the current milk prices are threatening the livelihoods of many farmers across the region. Earlier this year, I was...

Work Capability Assessments — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (9 Feb 2016)

Corri Wilson: The WCA was introduced to assess an individual’s eligibility for ESA. The assessments have three outcomes, which determine whether claimants are in the support group, or the work-related activity group, or are fit for work. Claimants who wish to dispute the decision must go through a mandatory reconsideration before they can appeal. They have one month after a decision to request that and...

Business of the House: Carers (9 Jun 2016)

Corri Wilson: According to the family resources survey, there are at least 5.3 million informal carers in the UK, although the number might be higher. There are thought to be more than half a million carers in Scotland, 10,000 of whom are in my constituency. The good news for carers is that, under the Scotland Act, benefits for carers, disabled people and those who are ill are being devolved to the...
