Valedictory Debate ( 5 Tach 2019)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: It is an honour to follow the hon. Member for Truro and Falmouth (Sarah Newton), with whom I worked well when she was a Minister. She has a strong interest in Durham. Although he is not in his place, I wish to pay tribute to the right hon. Member for North East Bedfordshire (Alistair Burt), who was a brilliant and dedicated Minister, and this House will really feel his loss. I wish at the...

Valedictory Debate ( 5 Tach 2019)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: I thank the right hon. Gentleman for those lovely comments. He, too, was a great Minister, especially in education, where I worked closely with him. Most importantly, I want to thank my constituents. Those at my constituency Labour party, like the rest of Durham residents, are wonderful and have been hugely supportive over the years. I hope they all know that I have fought hard to try to...

Gujarati Community in the UK (30 Hyd 2019)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship again, Sir Christopher. I congratulate the hon. Member for Harrow East (Bob Blackman) on securing this really important debate. I also thank him for giving me one last opportunity to respond to a debate from Labour’s Front Bench. It is really a pleasure to speak to the importance of recognising the contribution that the Gujarati community...

Northern Ireland: Restoring Devolution (21 Hyd 2019)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: Can the Secretary of State confirm that he will bring forward new legislation on abortion in Northern Ireland promptly, and can he say a little more about the process that he will adopt in doing so?

Debate on the Address: The Climate Emergency (17 Hyd 2019)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: I am pleased to take part in this debate today. There is no more important issue facing us than protecting the planet for future generations. We must test the measures in the Queen’s Speech against their ability to effectively tackle climate change and ensure that they go beyond warm words. In the short time that I have, I want to raise a number of issues that emerge from the Queen’s...

Education: Further and Higher Education: Quality and Choice ( 9 Med 2019)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: Will the Secretary of State tell the House what plans he has to implement the recommendations of the Augar post-18 education review?

Uk Shared Prosperity Fund ( 5 Med 2019)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: I congratulate the hon. Member for Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey (Drew Hendry) on securing this important debate. It builds on the important Westminster Hall debate that we held recently on this subject called by my hon. Friend the Member for Sheffield Central (Paul Blomfield). In that debate, we sought to elicit more information from the Government about how the shared...

Uk Shared Prosperity Fund ( 5 Med 2019)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: I absolutely agree. Indeed, we have pointed out in previous debates that, given what we know about regional inequality in this country, we do not trust this Government to use these funds to eradicate it. As we have heard throughout this debate, we need a shared prosperity fund to replace the EU structural funds currently being paid to the UK regions through the European regional development...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Fracking: Planning Policies (22 Gor 2019)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: I will give the Minister another chance. Everyone—from the Royal Town Planning Institute to Friends of the Earth—has criticised the Government’s plans to allow fracking to take place under permitted development, rather than by achieving planning permission, not least because it bypasses the views and concerns of local communities. Given the Government’s silence on this matter since...

Town and Country Planning (15 Gor 2019)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: I thank the Minister for his outline of this statutory instrument. The important first part of the SI ensures that the fee regime set out in the 2012 regulations is able to continue. Secondly, and perhaps more controversially, the SI amends regulation 14 of the 2012 regulations to include a £96 fee for an application for prior approval to build a larger rear extension to a dwelling house...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Post-18 Education and Funding Review (12 Gor 2019)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, which universities (a) Philip Augar and (b) members of the associated panel visited during the Post-18 review of education and funding.

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill: Marriage of same-sex couples in Northern Ireland ( 9 Gor 2019)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: I rise to support new clause 1, along with amendment 9, tabled by my hon. Friend the Member for Kingston upon Hull North (Diana Johnson), and new clauses 10, 11 and 12, tabled by my hon. Friend the Member for Walthamstow (Stella Creasy). The reality facing women in Northern Ireland is that, under current legislation, they can be sent to prison for life for ending a pregnancy. Abortion is...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill: Marriage of same-sex couples in Northern Ireland ( 9 Gor 2019)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: I thank my hon. Friend for those comments. I want to address some of the comments made by Members in the Chamber, particularly those representing Northern Ireland constituencies. They will know that I do not often speak on Northern Ireland matters because I respect the fact that they are the elected representatives for the area. Nevertheless, as we have seen demonstrated today, the issues we...

EU Structural Funds: Least Developed Regions — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (26 Meh 2019)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: What a pleasure it is to serve under your chairmanship again, Ms McDonagh, and I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Sheffield Central (Paul Blomfield) for securing this debate, and for all the work he has undertaken in Parliament to champion the issue of EU replacement funding and what to do about those regions in greatest need. This debate has shown Parliament at its best. We have...

Non-Domestic Rating (Lists) Bill (17 Meh 2019)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: I am extremely grateful for the very incisive comments and questions to the Minister by my hon. Friend the Member for Sheffield South East (Mr Betts) and the hon. Member for Harrow East (Bob Blackman). Labour supports this reform, not least because it is a part of our five-point plan for our high streets. Labour pledged in February 2017 to introduce more regular revaluations, coupled with...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Licensing Act 2003: Communities and Local Planning Policy (17 Meh 2019)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: More and more licensed premises are being granted extended opening hours, even when it has hugely negative consequences for local residents. Councils report that trying to stop there being too many licensed premised in an area through the use of cumulative impact assessments is too slow, burdensome and costly, as well as being ineffective. Will the Minister agree to work with his colleagues...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Students: Disadvantaged (13 Meh 2019)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, if he will change the measure of disadvantage used in the Student Premium to capture individual-level socio-economic disadvantage as recommended in the May 2019 Post-18 education and funding review: independent panel report.

Public Health: County Durham (12 Meh 2019)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: I am sure the Minister would accept that any formula that moves services from areas of relatively high need to areas of low need cannot be working properly. Does she also accept that it is simply not fair to push the onus to provide more services on to local authorities? As my right hon. Friend the Member for North Durham (Mr Jones) made clear, Durham County Council’s budget has been cut...

Public Health: County Durham (12 Meh 2019)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: May I say what a pleasure it is to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Owen? I thank my right hon. Friend the Member for North Durham (Mr Jones) for bringing forward this important debate. In 2013, there was a general welcome for the transfer of public health funding to local government, because it meant that public health and addressing public health issues could be integrated into the...

Public Health: County Durham (12 Meh 2019)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: My right hon. Friend makes an important point, which I am sure my hon. Friend the Member for Washington and Sunderland West (Mrs Hodgson) and I will take up in the coming weeks. That is an indication of how little the Government seem to be concerned about the children growing up in poor households. Let us look at the Durham situation. The starkest indicator is the seven-year healthy life...
