    • National Insurance Credits | Department for Work and Pensions | Written Answers

      To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, with reference to the publication, National Insurance Contributions Series CA 12 - Training for further employment and your National Insurance record, whether credits for approved training could have been used towards the second contribution condition for incapacity benefit.

    • World Health: 25-Year Environment Plan | Westminster Hall debates

      The hon. Gentleman is making a very good point. Does he agree that the value to our mental health of the environment and of time spent in it is clearly proven? In my constituency, Growing Well at Sizergh does a wonderful job, saving the NHS thousands of pounds a year by keeping people well. Does he regret, as I do, that there is no social prescribing in Cumbria to allow local people such as those at Growing Well to support more people and keep them well?

    • Tax Paid: Reductions | Oral Answers to Questions - Treasury | Commons debates

      Given that our social care system is breaking, causing indignity, poverty and hardship to millions of people in their old age, might it be time to consider increasing fair taxes, so that we can live in a civilised society that looks after its most vulnerable people?

    • National Insurance Credits | Department for Work and Pensions | Written Answers

      To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, with reference to the National Insurance Contributions Series CA12 Training for further employment and your National Insurance record and Section 7 of the Social Security (Credits) Regulations 1975 SI 1975/556, whether National Insurance credits for approved training can used towards the Second Contribution Condition for Incapacity Benefit.

    • National Insurance Credits | Department for Work and Pensions | Written Answers

      To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what the age restriction is for credits for approved training under Section 7 of the Social Security (Credits) Regulations 1975 SI 1975/556.

    • National Insurance Credits | Department for Work and Pensions | Written Answers

      To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what benefits credits for approved training, as defined by Section 7 of the Social Security (Credits) Regulations 1975 SI 1975/556, were valid for (a) on 26 March 2019 and (b) in 2002.

    • Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Motions) | Commons debates

      The hon. Gentleman is to be commended because, unlike Government Front Benchers, we are now looking at compromises and working together in the interests of the people. Let me push him a little more on the idea of a referendum. We have already discussed no deal and the Prime Minister's deal, and now potentially common market 2.0, and all of them are mutually exclusive and they cannot all represent all of the 52%. Does the hon. Gentleman not feel that in the interests of democracy and legitimacy, the only way to end this situation is to put his proposal, with all the benefits it brings with it, to the British people and allow them to choose either it or to remain?

    • Social Services: Children | Department for Education | Written Answers

      To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what assessment he has made of trends in the level of demand for children's social care services in the timeframe of the next Spending Review.

    • Social Services: Children | Department for Education | Written Answers

      To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what assessment he has made of the effect of trends in the level of demand for children's social care services on the adequacy of funding allocated to local authorities to provide those services.

    • Police Funding: Rural Areas | Oral Answers to Questions - Home Department | Commons debates

      Cumbria saw a 27% increase in crime last year-the third biggest increase in the country. With only eight police officers covering most of my constituency-an area the size of Greater London-that is hardly surprising, but it is dangerous and unacceptable. Will the Minister intervene immediately and provide the police and crime commissioner with the resources needed to keep our police officers and communities safe?

    • Local Government Funding - [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] | Westminster Hall debates

      The hon. Lady is absolutely right to point out that the impact is felt beyond council staff and workers, and particularly on children and families. Will she reflect on the fact that in 2008 there were fewer than 60,000 children in care and that today it is more than 75,000? At the same time, since 2008, there has been a 49% cut in early intervention-

    • Railway Stations: Accessibility | Westminster Hall debates

      Staveley station in my constituency, the first station in the Lake District national park, is accessible only by a 41-step staircase. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that one of the problems is having to bid for access funding to provide ramps and lifts? We expect the operator to make a bid, and the operator, in my case Northern, which has not covered itself in glory in recent times, has been reluctant to do so. We should have a top-down approach where perhaps the Minister helps to deliver solutions to, for example, Staveley's lack of access, directly.
