Estimates 2014-15 — Department for Work and Pensions: Universal Credit ( 7 Gor 2014)

Glenda Jackson: The flaw in the hon. Lady’s argument is that the Select Committee has been consistent—there has been complete cross-party unity on this—in presenting to the Department for Work and Pensions the areas where we believe improvements could be made and, in many instances, putting forward ideas about what kind of help is needed. There has also been a consistent response from the...

Estimates 2014-15 — Department for Work and Pensions: Universal Credit ( 7 Gor 2014)

Glenda Jackson: If ever a debate title were a misnomer, it is this one, because it should be “The failure to implement universal credit”. Failure is pretty much par for the course for the Department for Work and Pensions, certainly in the implementation of its policies, which aim to reduce costs to the benefit of claimants and taxpayers. My hon. Friend the Member for Aberdeen South (Dame Anne Begg), the...

Estimates 2014-15 — Department for Work and Pensions: Universal Credit ( 7 Gor 2014)

Glenda Jackson: It is not usual for me to be gobsmacked, but I certainly am by that story, even though I have heard from constituents who, while not necessarily experiencing heart attacks, have had absolutely disgraceful treatment. We are also seeing a rise in the number of appeals concerning employment and support allowance, and the appeals that have been lodged are taking longer and longer to come to a...

Estimates 2014-15 — Department for Work and Pensions: Universal Credit ( 7 Gor 2014)

Glenda Jackson: I am sure that my right hon. Friend, and I would hope every Member of this House, would be shocked to realise that the DWP is still not giving the right answers—it is ludicrous to expect the right answer to come from the Department of Work and Pension, as simple humility is not part and parcel of its make-up. The Committees and Government Departments that scrutinise where public money goes...

Written Answers — Education: Children: Protection ( 7 Gor 2014)

Glenda Jackson: To ask the Secretary of State for Education what recent assessment he has made of the adequacy of the UK's child protection legislation; and if he will make a statement.

Opposition Day — [3rd Allotted Day]: DWP: Performance (30 Meh 2014)

Glenda Jackson: The hon. Gentleman will in future regret taking such pride in his Secretary of State. We have all become used to the way in which the Secretary of State avoids answering any kind of direct question or actively engaging in any of the serious issues about the destruction of the welfare state and his Department’s total and utter incompetence by opting for a self-serving, sanctimonious sermon...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Iraq and Ending Sexual Violence in Conflict (16 Meh 2014)

Glenda Jackson: The past is always with us. We are urged to learn from our mistakes, and I am delighted to hear that the British Government have learnt and that there will be no military incursion in this particular war. May I also add my voice to those that have already been raised to say that the British Government should encourage Iran to think again, to work with America and our allies, and to bring its...

Immigration Bill (Money) (No. 2): Clause 60 — Deprivation if conduct seriously prejudicial to vital interests of the uk ( 7 Mai 2014)

Glenda Jackson: There is a great, gaping hole in the Government’s argument. However much the Minister may speak about the powers of the Home Secretary, no British Home Secretary in the House of Commons has ever had the power to impose on a sovereign nation state laws governing whom it should or should not take back, and to whom it should or should not give a passport and citizenship.

Immigration Bill (Money) (No. 2): Clause 60 — Deprivation if conduct seriously prejudicial to vital interests of the uk ( 7 Mai 2014)

Glenda Jackson: Although I was not present for the beginning of the Minister’s speech, I have been watching the debate assiduously in my office. In my constituency, there have been cases in which an individual has rightly been threatened with deportation by Her Majesty’s Government, yet their home nation state has categorically refused to take them back. I have constituents who have automatically lost...

Immigration Bill (Money) (No. 2): Clause 60 — Deprivation if conduct seriously prejudicial to vital interests of the uk ( 7 Mai 2014)

Glenda Jackson: Will SIAC have the information from the individual’s home Government? For example, will there be a requirement on the Chinese embassy—I cite China because it is the first example that comes to mind—to furnish evidence as to why it is refusing to allow its former citizen to regain their nationality, and will that information be furnished to SIAC?

Speaker’s Statement: High Speed Rail (London – West Midlands) Bill (28 Ebr 2014)

Glenda Jackson: I am a strong supporter of HS2. It is a great relief to me that this country has seemingly, at long last, moved on from the apparent belief that the only material we could use in this country was aspic. We have to begin to restructure our national economy, to narrow the economic divide between north and south, and to break the golden magnet that is London and the south-east. If I look at my...

Speaker’s Statement: High Speed Rail (London – West Midlands) Bill (28 Ebr 2014)

Glenda Jackson: The Secretary of State mentions apprenticeships and training. With HS1, the building of Stratford and, up to a point, the Olympics, there was a clear commitment that local people should be used on those building projects and that training schemes would be put in place to ensure that they had those opportunities. Will that same commitment apply to HS2?

New Member: Ukraine, Syria and Iran (24 Chw 2014)

Glenda Jackson: I welcome UN resolution 2139, but when it comes to ensuring that humanitarian assistance gets into Syria, and indeed across borders into countries where there are millions of refugees, the power brokers are still Russia and Iran. What persuasion is being exercised on those countries to exercise their power in such a way that the innocent civilians in Syria are not left either starving or...

Point of Order ( 5 Chw 2014)

Glenda Jackson: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. [Interruption.]

Point of Order ( 5 Chw 2014)

Glenda Jackson: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. This is a genuine request for information. On Monday, the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions appeared in front of our Select Committee. Our questioning was, in the main, about the slowness of the roll-out of universal credit and what seems to be gross misspending of public money. In response to my highly respected colleague, the Chair of our Select...

[Mr George Howarth in the Chair] — Housing (London) ( 5 Chw 2014)

Glenda Jackson: I entirely agree with my hon. Friend, but the issue of absentee landlords is not limited to the top end of the market. In my constituency since the right to buy was introduced, many properties originally built as affordable, with a social dimension, have been changing hands again and again. Nine times out of 10, the landlords do not live in this country and have no interest whatever in...

[Mr George Howarth in the Chair] — Housing (London) ( 5 Chw 2014)

Glenda Jackson: I entirely concur with everything that my hon. Friend has said, not only in this debate but in the many others we have had about this issue in the past. I can give an example from my own constituency, where a family has been housed—they have to be housed, because there is a statutory duty on the local authority to house them—in a place that is infested with lice and clearly unfit for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Syrian Refugees (29 Ion 2014)

Glenda Jackson: While I welcome the Home Secretary’s statement and share her pride in the way this country has acted so positively in furnishing humanitarian aid to the refugees, will she clarify who will be responsible for defining what constitutes the most vulnerable? I welcome her earlier response that children will not be separated from their parents, but will she also ensure that they are not...

TfL (Funding and Station Staffing) — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (15 Ion 2014)

Glenda Jackson: I apologise for not being present for the opening of the debate. Is the problem of safety not even further exacerbated by the proposal to close so many London fire stations?

TfL (Funding and Station Staffing) — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (15 Ion 2014)

Glenda Jackson: The issue is not only about people with disabilities. People with chronic illnesses could previously have got a black cab or even an ambulance to take them to regular appointments, but that has virtually gone. A constituent who had just come out of hospital collapsed on the platform at Swiss Cottage station, and if there had been no staff there, he would have been left entirely without assistance.
