Interference By Foreign Governments In The EU Referendum
Kate Hoey has proposed EDM1026. Motion reads: "That this House recognises the strength of feeling on many sides that will be expressed in the upcoming referendum on EU membership; asserts that the decision is one for the people of the UK, not for foreign governments; deprecates outside interference in our national debate; condemns fearmongering about the consequences of the British public's free vote; specifically rejects the statement of the Irish Taoiseach that if the people of the UK decide to leave the EU this could damage the Northern Ireland peace process; and calls for a respectful debate so that the public can make an informed decision on this very important matter."

Right Of Abode For Former British-Hong Kong Servicemen
Kate Hoey has signed EDM722. Motion reads: "That this House recognises the enormous contribution to Britain of the former Hong Kong Armed Forces from 1857 until 1997; believes that those remaining soldiers of the Hong Kong Military Service Corps and the Hong Kong Royal Naval Service who did not receive a UK passport following the handover of Hong Kong to China should now be offered that choice; notes that not more than some 500 soldiers were given a UK passport in 1997 under the then passport selection scheme; further notes that the remainder of the military Corps and some 100 Royal Naval servicemen were left behind; acknowledges that these men and their ancestors have served British commitments in south-east Asia greatly, stood shoulder to shoulder with Britain through two World Wars as well as alongside Britain in France, Burma, Korea, Malaya, Singapore, Hong Kong, China and the United Nations for King, Queen and country; and calls on the Government to recognise that the decision not

Tfl Consultation On Vauxhall Cross And Vauxhall Bus Station
Kate Hoey has proposed EDM950. Motion reads: "That this House regrets that Transport for London (TfL) and the London Borough of Lambeth have disregarded requests from local residents to extend the consultation period about their plans for the future of Vauxhall Cross and the proposed demolition of the bus station; notes that so far fewer than 1,000 replies have been received from the 300,000 Oyster card users surveyed by TfL; further notes that a senior official in Lambeth has now asked other Lambeth officials to encourage their staff and friends to complete TfL's survey; and believes this is further evidence that this shoddy and inadequate consultation should be torn up and begun again after the London Mayoral elections, with Londoners given the chance to choose between TfL's plan and that put forward by the local community."

London Overground Rail
Kate Hoey has signed EDM696. Motion reads: "That this House notes that London Overground rail services are portrayed as public rail services run by Transport for London; is concerned however that this masks the reality that London Overground is in fact a private rail franchise jointly operated by subsidiaries of Hong Kong and German state railways, who have ensured that almost Â£22 million of their share of revenue has been paid out in dividends between 2011 and 2014; is dismayed that these profits could have been used to fund an average year on year fare cut of 6.5 per cent for Londoners but instead are ultimately being used to support the railways of Berlin and Hong Kong; is deeply concerned that the subsidy from Londoners to foreign railways is set to continue, as the only bidders for next London Overground contract are subsidiaries of French, German, Hong Kong and Singapore railways; and calls for London passengers to be put before profit by allowing London Overground services to b

Prevention Of Debt Crises In Developing Countries
Kate Hoey has signed EDM68. Motion reads: "That this House supports taking action to prevent debt crises taking place in developing countries, as these delay development and can cause great suffering; welcomes the $130 billion of developing country debt which was cancelled through the Heavily Indebted Poor Countries initiative; notes that lending to low-income countries has trebled since 2008, and that the IMF and World Bank state that 45 low-income countries are at moderate or high risk of not being able to pay their debts; further notes that multilateral institutions are responsible for 60 per cent of loans to low income countries; in this context, urges the Government to keep giving bilateral aid as grants rather than loans; further urges the Government to require the multilateral institutions that it funds to take further measures to ensure loans do not lead to unpayable debts; calls on the Government to support a UN Intergovernmental Tax Body to give developing countries a say in

Mothers' Names And Marriage Certificates
Kate Hoey has signed EDM446. Motion reads: "That this House notes that regulations from 1986 mean it is still the case that the particulars to be registered for marriage include details of the fathers and not the mothers of the bride and groom; believes our law should not perpetuate the offensive and outdated message that marriage is a business transaction between fathers; also notes both mothers and fathers are recorded on a civil partnership certificate and believes the same should be the case on a marriage certificate; also believes change is needed so that mothers are no longer erased from these important historical records; notes the Prime Minister accepted these arguments and promised to address this inequality over a year ago but nothing has happened; and calls on the Home Secretary to make the necessary legislative update without further delay."
