Business of the House (23 Mar 2017)

Madeleine Moon: I have represented this House for seven years on the NATO parliamentary assembly. During the lockdown yesterday, there were messages coming into me from all over the NATO parliamentary family, offering solidarity and support, including from the headquarters in Brussels where people had just commemorated the attack on Brussels a year to the day. I wanted to pass that on to the Leader of the...

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Credit Cards: Fees and Charges (22 Mar 2017)

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Armed Forces: Compensation (21 Mar 2017)

Madeleine Moon: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, when he expects the findings of the consultation on Better combat compensation to be published; and if he will make a statement.

Prisons and Courts Bill (20 Mar 2017)

Madeleine Moon: I thank the hon. Gentleman, whom I consider my friend, for giving way. I suggest that the Justice Committee does visit Parc prison, because the leadership from the director there is essential. These things work only with leadership, quality staff, a whole organisational approach and a commitment to change. I am sure the Chair of the Select Committee would be delighted at what he finds there....

Prisons and Courts Bill (20 Mar 2017)

Madeleine Moon: I hope to bring great cheer to the right hon. and learned Member for Harborough (Sir Edward Garnier), because I am proud to say that one prison that has developed a world-class suite of rehabilitation interventions to reduce reoffending is Parc prison in my Bridgend constituency. Those interventions are largely thanks to the leadership of the prison’s director Janet Wallsgrove as well...

Prisons and Courts Bill (20 Mar 2017)

Madeleine Moon: I totally endorse everything that my hon. Friend says. She sets out the tragedy of the difficulties that women in prison face in maintaining family contact. Their children often end up in care or being farmed out to family members who cannot travel long distances. In particular, for Welsh women, children have to travel to England to see their mum in prison. This damages the family cohesion...

Prisons and Courts Bill (20 Mar 2017)

Madeleine Moon: I understand the hon. Gentleman’s points about the whiplash culture, but does he appreciate that the Bill does not cover the ability of rogue solicitors to pursue false claims against individuals who have not been involved in car accidents? Those solicitors claim that they have, and that people have been injured. An elderly couple in my constituency were harassed terribly, and although...

Prisons and Courts Bill (20 Mar 2017)

Madeleine Moon: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that one of the ways in which we could dramatically cut reoffending would be to look at how many people are revolving-door entrants and leavers of prison, not because of criminal intent but because their mental health condition drives them to behave in a way that leads them, inevitably, into the arms of the police—the police are becoming social workers for...

Prisons and Courts Bill (20 Mar 2017)

Madeleine Moon: Is my hon. Friend aware of the Emmaus project? It will offer a prisoner who is ready to take the step of moving away from drugs and offending and into work the chance to become a companion. People will prepare goods for sale in the Emmaus shop, and restore and repair other goods. Those people claim no benefits other than housing benefit, so there is no real cost for the state, but they are...

Prisons and Courts Bill (20 Mar 2017)

Madeleine Moon: Transferred online communications are wonderful if people have access to quality broadband, but communities in parts of my constituency have broadband that is as slow as 25% of capability. How on earth will people be able to gain access to justice when they cannot possibly do anything online because of appalling broadband?

Written Answers — Home Office: Police: Dogs (20 Mar 2017)

Madeleine Moon: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, whether attacks on police dogs will no longer be classed as damage to property and be treated as an aggravated attack on a sentient being; and if she will make a statement.

Royal Assent: Business of the House (16 Mar 2017)

Madeleine Moon: I had a Westminster Hall debate yesterday, which a number families travelled from across the UK to attend. The debate was also attended by six MPs from majority parties throughout the House. We were debating police widows’ pensions, as the widows lose their pensions should they remarry or cohabit. It is basically a tax on love. Unfortunately, the Minister for Policing and the Fire...

Police Widows’ Pensions (15 Mar 2017)

Madeleine Moon: I beg to move, That this House has considered police widows’ pensions. This important issue was brought to my attention by a constituent of mine, Diane, who sadly lost her husband in the line of duty when he was serving as a police officer. Years down the line, Diane met another man and fell in love. The couple decided they wanted to be together. They found that the position was that...

Police Widows’ Pensions (15 Mar 2017)

Madeleine Moon: The hon. Gentleman is moving me forward in my speech, but yes, that is a major issue. The people who serve in United Kingdom police forces expect that should they lose their lives in the line of duty, all their families will be cared for in exactly the same way. The hon. Gentleman has pointed out a major cause of injustice, which we have come here today to rectify. There was a welcome...

Police Widows’ Pensions (15 Mar 2017)

Madeleine Moon: I can say only that the Welsh think alike no matter their political party, because that is another thing that I intend to cover in my speech. When we ask individuals to put their lives on the line, we should expect that exactly the same care and responsibility will be shown towards all their families, should they make the ultimate sacrifice. Why, then, should a widow or widower lose the...

Police Widows’ Pensions (15 Mar 2017)

Madeleine Moon: Everyone expects to be treated the same. People might face different stresses and strains within the police force, but the risk, ultimately, is that every day someone will be determined to take the life of a police officer. If an officer is lost to their family, and if they have made appropriate plans to protect their family, it is right that the state honours that commitment. We pay great...

Police Widows’ Pensions (15 Mar 2017)

Madeleine Moon: As I have said, police officers face the same risks every day. They deserve the same pension rights, and their families deserve the same financial protection. Comparisons have already been made between police officers’ widows and widowers and their armed forces counterparts, with Ministers often seeking to differentiate between the two as a way of justifying the cessation of pension...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Defence Equipment: Bridgend (15 Mar 2017)

Madeleine Moon: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what the (a) date and (b) location is of the small and medium-sized enterprise defence equipment event in Bridgend constituency; whether the hon. Member for Bridgend will be invited to that event; and if he will make a statement.

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Army: Young People (14 Mar 2017)

Madeleine Moon: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, pursuant to the Answer of 27 February 2017 to Question 64194, which subject matter experts in defence and government departments will be invited to contribute to the Army's Junior Entry Review; how other stakeholders and interested parties can contribute to that review; and if he will make a statement.
