Schools: National Funding Formula: General Election Campaign: Abuse and Intimidation (14 Sep 2017)

Vicky Ford: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Schools: National Funding Formula: General Election Campaign: Abuse and Intimidation (14 Sep 2017)

Vicky Ford: I just wanted to say something about anonymising addresses, or not making them public. When I stood for election, I did not make my address public, partly because of threats that I had received during my time working on international gun laws—threats from people who have guns. The difficulty was, however, that those who make themselves anonymous can be accused, politically, of trying...

Schools: National Funding Formula: General Election Campaign: Abuse and Intimidation (14 Sep 2017)

Vicky Ford: It is not just online that abuse is happening, and not just on the Labour side. The Conservative candidate in Ealing reported that two Asian activists on her side received much abuse to their faces. They were spat at, told that they should have their throats slit, threatened by being told they should die, and told that their mothers should never have given birth to them. Their cars were also...

Schools: National Funding Formula: General Election Campaign: Abuse and Intimidation (14 Sep 2017)

Vicky Ford: I want to clarify that in my earlier intervention I did not accuse Labour activists of being responsible for actions against Conservative activists. My point was that Conservative activists, especially women and those from ethnic minorities, were also seriously targeted, face to face, on the streets of London in the 2017 general election.

Schools: National Funding Formula: General Election Campaign: Abuse and Intimidation (14 Sep 2017)

Vicky Ford: Does my hon. Friend agree that we should be particularly concerned about those who are vulnerable? I have in mind the case of one of my Conservative colleagues who stood in the east of England. She was threatened with rape online. Then the threat was, “Shoot her, then pull her teeth out of her jaw while she fades away.” The said candidate is partially sighted and was going around...

Schools: National Funding Formula: General Election Campaign: Abuse and Intimidation (14 Sep 2017)

Vicky Ford: I just want to go back to the case I mentioned earlier of the partially sighted candidate who was threatened with rape, among other threats. My hon. Friend suggested that the candidate should ensure that the police were aware of the situation. One of the advantages of today’s media is that I have since been in contact with her. She said that the police were notified but, when asked...

Finance Bill (12 Sep 2017)

Vicky Ford: I return to the £100 billion costing of university fees, where the hon. Gentleman seemed to be unsure whether or not this was still his policy. We are debating the Finance Bill, so if that was his policy, how would he intend to finance it?

Finance Bill (12 Sep 2017)

Vicky Ford: I thank my right hon. Friend for his announcements about Making Tax Digital and for pointing out that the change will not affect the smallest of businesses. Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, and does he agree that we on the Government Benches put small businesses first?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Space Sector (12 Sep 2017)

Vicky Ford: In my constituency of Chelmsford, more than 500 jobs at Teledyne e2v are directly involved in the space sector. We are making the cameras that will go on satellites out in space to see whether there is life on other planets. Will the Minister reassure my constituents that the UK’s ongoing contribution to the European Space Agency is being considered?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (12 Sep 2017)

Vicky Ford: More than eight out of 10 British manufacturers export elsewhere in the EU and tariffs or customs delays could have a negative impact. Will the Secretary of State confirm that the Government will seek to negotiate transitional relationships that maintain the economic benefits of the single market and customs union until a new relationship with the EU can be implemented?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Vicky Ford: In last year’s referendum I and many others warned of the risk of uncertainty. That risk has not gone away, but we can work together to reduce it, which is why the Bill is needed. Businesses need legal certainty to trade, create jobs and generate taxes, and the laws that govern our businesses are important. For the past 40 years or so, many of those laws have been agreed at European...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Vicky Ford: I wish the EU had followed that mechanism all the time, then we might not be where we are now. The right hon. Gentleman’s point shows precisely why we need amendments, which I was coming to. Last Thursday, the Secretary of State suggested that he would be prepared to agree to a sifting or triage process, so that technical decisions could be made swiftly but more important policy...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

Vicky Ford: As a new Member, I also looked at advice on how Parliament has looked at statutory instruments, and I, too, saw that the last time such instruments were annulled by this House was back in 1979. The issue then was the cost of paraffin, and I remember 1979 and the high cost of fuel; it was a significant issue. However, given that the Secretary of State has said in response to the intervention...

EU Exit Negotiations (5 Sep 2017)

Vicky Ford: I thank the Secretary of State not only for this update, but for all his work over the summer. I spent a bit of the summer in Ireland and Northern Ireland with businesses trading across the border, looking at the papers and suggestions on customs and on Ireland and Northern Ireland. May I congratulate him on trying to find creative solutions to make that border crossing, and indeed crossing...
