White van womanHarlow MP, Robert Halfon, has today brought a little bit of Essex to the House of Commons chamber by asking the Prime Minister about Harlow’s very own White Van Woman.

Alison Hickling, from Harlow, was featured in The Sun today talking about the government’s success of getting women into work, and also what policy changes she would like.

In the article, Alison said: Women are getting their independence and they are enjoying it… They’ve only got to look at Margaret Thatcher, I suppose it started then. … their role has changed dramatically”.

During Robert’s question, who was waving a copy of the Sun in the House of Commons chamber, asked the Prime Minister whether he had seen the story about Alison, and asked him to confirm that “white van women, especially from Essex, are the wheels of our long term economic plan?”

The Prime Minister responded by saying” “Absolutely and those wheels must keep turning. I think it is important, that’s the point he makes, of course I look at the sun every morning and I was fascinated to see this article but the fact is under labour female unemployment went up by 24%, under this government the number of women in work is highest since record began.”
