A Green Industrial Revolution (15 Jan 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker, for giving me the opportunity to address the House for the first time. Before I begin my speech, I would just like to say that all of us in Warrington North wish Mr Speaker—the son of Warrington North’s first MP, Doug Hoyle—every success in his new role; and you, Madam Deputy Speaker, in yours. Let me turn to my own new role. Every Member of this House...

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Leasehold Property) Bill (22 Jan 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: Does my hon. Friend agree that, given other well-known leasehold issues, such as rising ground rents and other charges levied by distant landlords, access should not result in extra service charges and that there might be a need to assess and reform the legal relationship between leaseholders and freeholders?

Wuhan Coronavirus: Holocaust Memorial Day (23 Jan 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker, for calling me to speak in this important debate, and one that is very close to my heart. As part of this country’s vibrant and diverse Jewish community, I have had the honour of knowing a number of holocaust survivors at first hand—like Marianne, who came to this country on the Kindertransport, and who taught me and so many others in my community Hebrew. I...

Lobby and Media Briefings: Journalists' Access (4 Feb 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: I was interested to hear the Minister refer to the people’s PMQs on Facebook and engagement on social media as some sort of alternative to proper scrutiny of the Government’s decisions by the press lobby. The Prime Minister cannot even answer what shampoo he uses in the people’s PMQs on Facebook. Why is he running scared?

Nuclear Energy Policy: Climate Change (5 Feb 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: The hon. Lady is making some salient points about the importance of nuclear energy. Contracts from Hinkley Point C to suppliers in my constituency are worth more than £61 million, so many of my constituents will be keenly awaiting the energy White Paper to see what commitments are made to new nuclear projects that could bring even greater benefits locally. Does she agree that the Government...

Transport Infrastructure (11 Feb 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: On balance, I welcome the news that HS2 has been given the go-ahead, for the capacity gains that will benefit the north-west region and for the construction and rail supply firms in my constituency, which I hope will receive a fair shot at winning contracts associated with the project. However, my constituents in Culcheth, Croft, Risley and Hollins Green in particular will be looking for...

Retail Workers: Protection (11 Feb 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Weaver Vale (Mike Amesbury) for securing this important debate. Before I begin, I will declare an interest: I worked for five years for the trade union USDAW, which has done fantastic work alongside the British Retail Consortium in raising awareness of and tackling violence against shop staff. In the context of the TUC’s HeartUnions Week, I want to put...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Online Harmful Material (13 Feb 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: What steps his Department is taking to help prevent the spread of harmful material online.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Online Harmful Material (13 Feb 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: It has been many months since the consultation on the Government’s online harms White Paper closed, and we have only just received the initial response. Based on the latest police recorded crime data, it is estimated that an average of one online abuse offence against a child was recorded every 16 minutes in England and Wales, which equates to up to 90 online sexual offences against...

Social Care (25 Feb 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: We cannot overstate the scale of the social care crisis in this country. The Government continue to kick the proverbial can down the road, with the Green Paper promised in March 2017 still not having materialised, and much of the public conversation focuses simply on the issue of funding. Clearly, I do not wish to diminish the urgency of the need for greater funding, but without fixing all...

Prime Minister: Engagements (4 Mar 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: I note that, in the interests of public safety, the Government have taken emergency measures to rush through legislation to ensure that those convicted of terrorist offences serve their full sentences. Given the far smaller conviction rate and far more substantial reoffending rate for those convicted of sexual offences, will the Prime Minister commit to a wider sentencing review, so that...

Prime Minister: Engagements (4 Mar 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: indicated dissent.

Education (Guidance about Costs of School Uniforms) Bill (13 Mar 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: In Warrington, we have a number of community-led school uniform swap schemes to ease the burden on parents, particularly where they have children in different schools or children who seem to outgrow their uniform as quickly as they get it. Indeed, Warrington food bank also provides school uniforms to families who need them. Does my hon. Friend agree that the Bill would support such...

Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Covid-19 (17 Mar 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: What steps he is taking to support UK nationals based overseas who are at risk from covid-19.

Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Covid-19 (17 Mar 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: Over the coming weeks and months, as more and more airlines, travel operators and insurance firms go bust, more and more British nationals will find themselves stranded abroad without accommodation or flight options. Will the Secretary of State reassure us that the Foreign Office is gearing up for that challenge and will be there to provide whatever support is required?

Economic Update (17 Mar 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: What measures will the Government take to ensure that landlords who benefit from mortgage holidays do not profit from the crisis by having their pockets lined by tenants still expected to pay their rent?

Business of the House (19 Mar 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: I am sure that all colleagues across the House find that the bulk of questions from constituents come in after statements when we have had an opportunity to raise matters, once the details, or lack thereof, of what has been proposed and how it will impact on them have percolated—from breweries to nurseries, to self-employed creatives and everything in between. Will the Leader of the House...

Gambling Advertising in Sport (19 Mar 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: I thank the Minister for giving way, and my hon. Friend the Member for Swansea East (Carolyn Harris) for securing this vital debate and the important points that she made about gambling advertising, particularly to young people in video games such as FIFA. I am pleased that there are restrictions on gambling on credit cards, for example, but bets from student loans are a real concern for...

Planning Process: Probity (11 Jun 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: Campaigners in Warrington North have been battling to save Peel Hall from development for over three decades. With planning law already weighted so heavily in favour of development, what assurances can the Minister give that the developer cannot simply make a substantial donation to the Conservative party to subvert the process and that residents will get the fair hearing they deserve and can...

Testing of NHS and Social Care Staff (24 Jun 2020)

Charlotte Nichols: The coronavirus crisis has reaffirmed what Labour has always stated: that the NHS is the jewel of our country’s public services. We are beyond fortunate to have such brilliant and dedicated doctors, nurses and support staff, including cleaners, from around the world who are working for us in the health service—such as the student nurses from the University of Chester’s Warrington campus...
