May we have a debate on the Cultural Olympiad arts festival, which the brilliant IF festival in Milton Keynes is supposed to be part of? There are concerns that the Olympiad festival will be increasingly based in London. Does the Leader of the House not agree that such a festival should be open to the whole United Kingdom?

Would our MP get invoved with a debate that affects us in milton keynes what with the unemployment we have hear
Public Bill Committee: Finance (No. 3) Bill: Clause 20 (17 May 2011)
Kerry McCarthy: ...that people are better off in work. I have sometimes
argued that those calculations do not necessarily take into account all
the factors that they should-for example, if someone’s child has
*free school meals*, which they would lose if they got into work, along
with *free* prescriptions and dental services. Such factors have an
impact on that “better off in work”...
