Sexual violence survivors silenced 

Lib Dems Layla Moran asks about cases where survivors of sexual violence have been silenced through NDAs and gagging clauses by their universities. 

Will the government back her bill to ban the use of NDAs in cases of bulling and misconduct? 

Raab says he will look very carefully at her proposals and says “we’ve got to do everything we can to protect woman and girls in this country”.

He says he’s relieved that the volume of rape convictions this year is up two-thirds.

Women’s rights under attack – Labour 

Labour’s Rosie Duffield says British women are under attack – in the form of assaults and participation in elite sport and asks for the government to enshrine “ a women’s right to choose” into law. 

Raab says the UK law is that women have a right to choose and he doesn’t want to see the UK follow the USA down the path of litigation in courts.

Scotland wants independence – Blackford

Ian Blackford starts by stating Nicola Sturgeon has set the date and started the campaign for Scottish Independence. 

He says the Westminister govt is breaking international law and dealing poorly with the issues of the day. 

Raab says “it’s not the right time for another referendum, given the challenges we face as one United Kingdom”. He says the people of Scotland want “their two governments to work together”.

Blackford says the government doesn’t have the right to stop Scottish democracy. 

Raab claims Blackford is “airbrushing history” and that Scots suffer a “huge tax burden” and Scotland has worse-performing schools than England and Wales.
