The money for Sure Start is there, so centres do not have to close. [ Interruption. ] Yes, and I think that when the Opposition consider the right hon. Gentleman’s performance it could be time for a bit of “Brother, where art thou?”

The three speeches/headings immediately before
- 1 earlier: John Bercow
Order. Let us have a bit of order in the House. I want to get to the bottom of the Order Paper and the House needs to help in that process.
- 2 earlier: David Cameron
What we are doing for children in this country is funding education for two-year-olds for the first time, putting money into the pupil premium—something the right hon. Gentleman did not do for 13 years—and making sure that money is focused on the most disadvantaged. That is what is actually happening. When the party opposite looks at his performance—[ Interruption. ]
- 3 earlier: Edward Miliband
This is a guy who has made his career out of opportunism knocks. Remember what he said at the election: he was strongly committed to Sure Start; he would improve Sure Start; and if anyone suggested otherwise, it was an absolute disgrace. As children’s centres face closure, people know that he has got it in his power to stop it happening by reinforcing that Sure Start ring fence. He is the Prime Minister; it might not have looked like it last week, but why does he not get a grip?
- Have a quick scan of the speech under the video, then press “Play”.
- When you hear the start of that speech, press “Now!”.
- The timestamped video will then appear on TheyWorkForYou – thanks from
everyone who uses the site :)
Some videos will be miles out – if you can't
find the right point, don't worry, just try another speech!
- Sign in if you want to get on the Top Timestampers league table!
- If the video suddenly jumps a couple of hours, or otherwise appears broken, let us know.
- If the speech you're looking for is beyond the end of the video,
move on to the next video chunk.
- If you're right at the start of a day, it's quite possible the start of the video
will be the end of the previous programme on BBC Parliament, skip ahead some minutes
to check :)
- Hansard is not a verbatim transcript, so spoken words might
differ slightly from the printed version. And a small note – if
the speech you are looking out for is an oral question (questions asked in the
first hour or so of Monday–Thursdays in the Commons), then all the MP
will actually say is their question number, e.g. “Number Two”.
- The skip buttons move in 30 second increments (you can go
back before the start point), and you can access a slider by hovering
over the video.
