Victims and Prisoners Bill: New Clause 20 - Domestic abuse related death reviews ( 4 Rha 2023)

Maria Miller: Let me start by thanking my right hon. Friend the Minister for the constructive way in which he has engaged with the Bill since its Second Reading. In the interests of time, I will confine my comments to the two amendments that I have tabled, which have cross-party support and to which I think the Government are listening intently. Amendment 1 would recognise as victims people who have been...

Victims and Prisoners Bill: New Clause 20 - Domestic abuse related death reviews ( 4 Rha 2023)

Maria Miller: I think it goes to the heart of the case when someone with such extensive experience endorses a change of approach, and my right hon. and learned Friend is entirely right. The new clause calls for a change that would transfer the decision to release records to a judge, but would also ensure that counselling records are disclosed only when they are “of substantial probative value”. I would...

Independent Complaints and Grievance Scheme — [Sir Robert Syms in the Chair] (30 Tach 2023)

Maria Miller: I thank everybody who has taken part in the debate, and I hope our comments will be listened to carefully. The ICGS is a system of well thought-through procedures and processes that provide an avenue for redress and for changing culture and behaviour in this place. Not all the original proposals have been implemented or adhered to, so I urge the review to consider how many of the current...

Independent Complaints and Grievance Scheme — [Sir Robert Syms in the Chair] (30 Tach 2023)

Maria Miller: The Minister said a phrase a few moments ago that I think is important: the ICGS is a system. It is not a thing, but a system; it is a number of different elements. The concern that I expressed, and that has come from elsewhere, is that although we may be having this review at the moment, not all of the system has actually been implemented—many elements of it were never implemented. Will...

Independent Complaints and Grievance Scheme — [Sir Robert Syms in the Chair] (30 Tach 2023)

Maria Miller: I beg to move, That this House has considered the work of the Independent Complaints and Grievance Scheme. It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Robert. I am here today because the reputation of Parliament matters, and how we conduct ourselves here matters. Like many workplaces, we are grappling with issues around bullying, harassment and sexual misconduct, and we are...

Independent Complaints and Grievance Scheme — [Sir Robert Syms in the Chair] (30 Tach 2023)

Maria Miller: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his timely intervention. I will come to the specifics of that point later in my remarks. One reason for calling the debate today is that there is not that surety. The cases go on for months, not weeks, because of the number of cases that are being referred to the ICGS. There needs to be a review of how the organisation operates to address the very remarks that...

Criminal Justice Bill (28 Tach 2023)

Maria Miller: It is a great pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for Kingston upon Hull North (Dame Diana Johnson). She knows that I very much agree with the sentiment that she has just expressed around the criminalisation of women who are in one of the most difficult situations. In years gone by, people who took their own lives were subject to the criminal law. We have seen the error of our ways and...

Criminal Justice Bill (28 Tach 2023)

Maria Miller: Let me confirm that I was talking about rough sleeping. The antisocial behaviour action plan, which is cited in the explanatory notes, to provide the support that is needed is vague, and I hope that the Minister will reassure us that far more support will be given to local authorities if these measures come through, to make sure that they have effective provisions in place. I will speed up,...

Criminal Justice Bill (28 Tach 2023)

Maria Miller: I thank my right hon. Friend and his colleagues for their fantastic work in implementing the Law Commission’s review in this area. It really is a testament to the Government that they have done that. However, some victims of intimate image abuse face another issue, because their images are still legally online and have not been taken down by some website providers. Will my right hon. Friend...

International Development White Paper (21 Tach 2023)

Maria Miller: I very much welcome this White Paper, which reiterates the importance of eliminating gender-based violence. Last week I worked with parliamentarians from across the Commonwealth, thanks to the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association and my right hon. Friend’s Department, and we resolved that there is a real need for international leadership to effectively challenge what are still called...

International Men's Day — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (21 Tach 2023)

Maria Miller: It is interesting that the hon. Lady has brought up the amount of time that men take off for parental leave. There is also data that would suggest that even when more paid parental leave is available, it is not taken up because of a fear that both men and women feel: if we take time off around pregnancy, we are in some way letting people down. The hon. Lady, as somebody who has had children,...

International Men's Day — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (21 Tach 2023)

Maria Miller: It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Davies, in this debate on International Men’s Day. It is a particular pleasure to pay tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Don Valley (Nick Fletcher) for securing this debate, and for making such an important contribution. My hon. Friend is absolutely right to highlight the way in which gender stereotypes are harmful to men...

International Men's Day — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (21 Tach 2023)

Maria Miller: I think my hon. Friend is probably thinking about something different. The gender pay gap is about looking at groups of people who earn differently for doing the same thing in their workplace. It is not about pay levels—pay rates for the individual. If my hon. Friend looks at the data available now, he will see that the gender pay gap has actually disappeared for groups of men and women in...

Making Britain a Clean Energy Superpower ( 9 Tach 2023)

Maria Miller: I warmly welcome this historic King’s Speech and the “clean energy superpower” theme of today’s debate. As the House will imagine, I will also look at the broader context within which this King’s Speech has to be viewed. Before I go on to that, I wish to pick up on the comments of the right hon. Member for Doncaster North (Edward Miliband). I did agree with one thing he said: we...

Making Britain a Clean Energy Superpower ( 9 Tach 2023)

Maria Miller: If he does not, people will judge him all the more badly for that. As I said, I warmly welcome this historic King’s Speech, which comes at a time when the challenges our country faces are starting to crystallise. We have had three major impacts to our economy in the past few years, and the doorstep conversations we were having at the time of the last general election in 2019 were nothing...

Making Britain a Clean Energy Superpower ( 9 Tach 2023)

Maria Miller: The hon. Gentleman makes a good point. I heard a great deal about the importance of hydrogen to our future on my recent trip to Canada as the Prime Minister’s trade envoy. There are a lot of complications associated with hydrogen and we need to do more work on it, but the hon. Gentleman is right to say that good things, such as those that he mentions, can be eclipsed by the Opposition’s...

Making Britain a Clean Energy Superpower ( 9 Tach 2023)

Maria Miller: My hon. Friend makes an important point. When I speak to companies in Canada that are developing lithium mines and looking at mining rare earth metals, we talk about the importance of supporting indigenous people and of proper training. We should be doing business with countries that take the issues around modern slavery, which my hon. Friend raises, very seriously. That will be taken into...

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Question (24 Hyd 2023)

Maria Miller: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, what steps he is taking to strengthen the UK's relationship with Commonwealth countries.

Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Topical Questions (24 Hyd 2023)

Maria Miller: Strong parliamentary democracy is crucial to the Commonwealth, and the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association has a central role as one of the oldest Commonwealth institutions, with you as one of our co-presidents, Mr Speaker. My right hon. Friend’s Department acknowledges that new legislation is needed to recognise the CPA as an international interparliamentary organisation, to keep it...
