Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Automatic Release from Prison on Licence (8 Oct 2019)

Caroline Nokes: My constituent Valerie Matcham’s grandson was killed by a single punch to the side of his head. Bradley’s killer was sentenced to just two years in prison, and the family is distraught at the thought that he could be out on licence after just one year. I am encouraged by my right hon. and learned Friend’s words and urge him to keep the views of families at the forefront of his mind when...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Employment: Young People (7 Oct 2019)

Caroline Nokes: I welcome my hon. Friend’s comments about the national living wage and young people. On what evidence has she based the decision not to extend that down to 18, or is she perhaps considering providing the national living wage to those who are younger but still able to provide a great deal to employers in the workplace?

Domestic Abuse Bill (2 Oct 2019)

Caroline Nokes: My hon. Friend is making an incredibly important point, and I think it is imperative that he is allowed the time in which to achieve that.

Domestic Abuse Bill (2 Oct 2019)

Caroline Nokes: It is always a privilege to follow the right hon. Member for Normanton, Pontefract and Castleford (Yvette Cooper). She and I do not always agree on things, but I absolutely concur with her final comments to the Minister about this being a gendered crime. Of course it happens to men as well as women, but we have to look at the reality of the statistics. I welcome the opportunity this...

Domestic Abuse Bill (2 Oct 2019)

Caroline Nokes: I welcome the comments that the hon. Gentleman makes and those that my right hon. Friend the Member for Staffordshire Moorlands (Karen Bradley), a former Culture Secretary, made when she said that she was trying to do what he suggests. Of course the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government must also be involved. We have heard so much about health, relationships and sexual...

Domestic Abuse Bill (2 Oct 2019)

Caroline Nokes: My right hon. Friend is absolutely right; we must work across Government and we must consider all vulnerabilities. We have heard this afternoon about the varied forms that domestic abuse takes. It might be physical, financial, emotional. We have heard about coercive control. However, there is also the controlling behaviour that relates to immigration status. A victim is a victim first, and...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Supporting Women in Developing Countries (2 Oct 2019)

Caroline Nokes: What steps his Department is taking to support women in developing countries in (a) business and (b) further education after they have finished school.

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Supporting Women in Developing Countries (2 Oct 2019)

Caroline Nokes: Some of the most inspirational, determined business leaders and entrepreneurs in Romsey and Southampton North are women. Do the Secretary of State and his Front-Bench team agree that female empowerment cannot begin and end in school, but has to continue into the workplace? Will he commit to giving more support to make sure that we have women business leaders in the developing world?

Petition - Freewheelers' Use of Bus Lanes: South Western Railway (1 Oct 2019)

Caroline Nokes: I welcome the fact that the tracker is being shared with the Department, but does my hon. Friend have any plans to share it more widely with Members of Parliament from across the south-west who are hearing the same levels of frustration in their postbag?

Petition - Freewheelers' Use of Bus Lanes: South Western Railway (1 Oct 2019)

Caroline Nokes: The Minister has referred a number of times to things being done as fast as possible and the new fleet being introduced as soon as it can be. Can he give any indication of a timescale?

Petition - Freewheelers' Use of Bus Lanes: South Western Railway (1 Oct 2019)

Caroline Nokes: I think it is important to take the opportunity to press the Minister when I can. He makes the point that wi-fi is fitted—it is, but it simply does not work. It is complicated to log on to and it drops out frequently. Will he use all power to his elbow when discussing this with SWR? We know it is there, but make it better.

Petition - Freewheelers' Use of Bus Lanes: South Western Railway (1 Oct 2019)

Caroline Nokes: Three years!

Petition - Freewheelers' Use of Bus Lanes: South Western Railway (1 Oct 2019)

Caroline Nokes: I thank my right hon. Friend for her comments. She says that high fares are acceptable only if there is a reasonable service. I received two comments from Guildford constituents on Twitter when they heard that this debate was occurring. One of them, Philippa, tells me that 2% of her trains this year have been both on time and in the correct formation. Scott, who travels into Waterloo, says...

Petition - Freewheelers' Use of Bus Lanes: South Western Railway (1 Oct 2019)

Caroline Nokes: I thank the Speaker for having granted this debate. I recognise that the performance of South Western Railway is not a new subject, rehearsed as it was in this Chamber by the right hon. Member for Twickenham (Sir Vince Cable) less than a year ago and as it has been repeatedly in general debates touching on rail issues. For those of us unfortunate enough to be served by the franchise, it is a...

Petition - Freewheelers' Use of Bus Lanes: South Western Railway (1 Oct 2019)

Caroline Nokes: I do agree with the hon. Gentleman, who has highlighted one of the many problems, which is the lack of information. We all understand that problems on the network can cause trains to be delayed, but in the 21st century providing information in advance can enable passengers to work out a different route. Sometimes such information is simply not forthcoming. I well recall being at Southampton...

Petition - Freewheelers' Use of Bus Lanes: South Western Railway (1 Oct 2019)

Caroline Nokes: I thank the hon. Lady for making that point. It may try her patience, but I will come on to the issue of disabled passengers at the end of my remarks. A constituent of mine has been in touch about a terrible experience he had on a train from London Waterloo to Basingstoke. As a disabled passenger, he was trapped on the train and unable to make alternative arrangements, and he had a...

Petition - Freewheelers' Use of Bus Lanes: South Western Railway (1 Oct 2019)

Caroline Nokes: My hon. Friend makes a valid point. As my constituents pass through places such as Wimbledon, they see that no one is able to get on those trains. As one constituent put it to me, the only change he has noticed in SWR’s service is a further deterioration, from a very low base: short formations, broken trains and stations being skipped, and delays continue unabated. As he correctly points...

Prime Minister's Role in Creating a Safe Environment (26 Sep 2019)

Caroline Nokes: I fear I might be repetitive because last night I asked my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister whether it was not just about language but about tone. I commend my hon. Friend the Minister for his tone today, but how would he suggest that I should respond to those in the beautiful marketplace of Romsey who three Saturdays ago told me I was a traitor who deserved to be shot, when the language...

Prime Minister's Update (25 Sep 2019)

Caroline Nokes: What matters in this place is not just language, but tone. Earlier my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister spoke of political cowardice; I wish to speak to him of political bravery. Politics is the art of the possible. I genuinely believe it is possible for him to get a new deal; further, I believe it is possible for it to pass this House. But it would be politically brave not simply to reach...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Access to Food (25 Jul 2019)

Caroline Nokes: Access to food also requires access to labour to plant, care for and pick it. Over the last year, I have had many representations from farmers in my constituency and from the National Farmers Union. What representations is my right hon. Friend making to Cabinet colleagues advocating a points-based system to make sure that that has sufficient flex so that there is access to labour not just...
