Recent appearances

  • Written Answers — Department of Health: Community Health Services 9 Feb 2017

    To ask the Secretary of State for Health, whether an NHS trust which the Care Quality Commission reports as requiring improvement can be awarded a community health services contract under an NHS-led transaction process in the event that it applied for such a contract prior to the rules changing to permit only NHS trusts with a good inspection rating to apply or be awarded such contracts.
  • Housing White Paper 7 Feb 2017

    My constituents feel that localism is all but dead. Will the Secretary of State expand on how he intends to strengthen the planning laws to ensure that their voices are heard much more loudly than those of the avaricious developers who are trying to thwart the local plan and defy any remaining vestiges of localism?
  • The Secretary of State Was Asked: Social Mobility 6 Feb 2017

    If the Department for Education is as committed to social mobility through education as it claims, will the Secretary of State explain why cuts to the early years funding formula and to local authorities have actually weakened outstanding early years education, which is the foundation of social mobility?
