Recent appearances

  • Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements 25 Mar 2015

    Thirteen months ago, my constituent Leigh Smith tragically lost her three-month-old baby Beatrice due to a rare heart condition. In an effort to help other families avoid the grief and despair of losing a child, Mrs Smith wants all schools to install defibrillators and to teach life-saving skills. Will the Prime Minister offer his support to this vital cause?
  • Deregulation Bill (Programme) (No.3): Backbench Business — School Funding Formula 10 Mar 2015

    Does my hon. Friend agree that there is no reason why the introduction of a new funding formula should jeopardise other elements of spending in the two-to-19 education budget?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements 4 Mar 2015

    The Department for Education has overruled Norfolk county council’s proposal for an interim executive board to resolve the future of The Hewett School in my constituency. Will the Prime Minister seek to establish why the DFE considers its own centrally imposed proposal to be preferable, given that it seems to go against the spirit of localism?
