[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...

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...

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...

[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,...

[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...

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...

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?
