Recent appearances

  • Written Answers — Department for Education: Reading: Teaching Methods 17 Dec 2014

    To ask the Secretary of State for Education, how many state-funded primary schools whose phonics check results were below the national average have been judged (a) outstanding and (b) good in their most recent Ofsted inspection.
  • Resettlement of Vulnerable Syrian Refugees: Preparing Young People for Work 10 Dec 2014

    I welcome the additional support for careers guidance in schools and colleges. Will my right hon. Friend consider using a proportion of this money, or asking the new company to use a proportion of this money, to tackle the outdated images of industries such as manufacturing and construction, which put so many young people off considering a career in these vital and growing sectors of our economy?
  • Resettlement of Vulnerable Syrian Refugees 10 Dec 2014

    My hon. Friend is right to point out that the quality and extent of British aid is second only to that of the United States. Britain’s historic role and ties in the region put a greater onus on us to play our full part in the resettlement of refugees. What work are the Government doing to encourage more local authorities to sign up to the vulnerable persons relocation scheme?
