  • National Funding Formula: Schools/High Needs 14 Dec 2016

    Children in my constituency start school up to 19 months behind where they should be in terms of development.

  • Social Care Funding 12 Dec 2016

    It would be a huge mistake to think that the Minister can plug the gaping hole in care funding with the social care precept alone. The poorest areas, which most need publicly funded social care, are the least likely to be able to get it by raising council tax. If not today, when will the Minister come to the House with a plan to solve this crisis and help families, care users and the NHS?
