Written Answers — Department for Education: Post-18 Education and Funding Review (4 Jul 2019)

Lord Blunkett: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether their assessment of the review of post-18 education and funding will take into account regional variations in salaries when examining the personal economic benefits of university study to graduates.

Post-18 Education and Funding Review - Motion to Take Note (2 Jul 2019)

Lord Blunkett: My Lords, I draw attention to my declaration of interest in the register and reiterate what the noble Lord, Lord Patten, said about the nature, accessibility and depth of the report. After listening to him this afternoon and with our joint venture on Radio 4’s “Any Questions” last week, I can genuinely call him my noble friend. It seems to me that the report was extremely thorough and...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Honours (1 Jul 2019)

Lord Blunkett: To ask Her Majesty's Government how many of each category of honours were awarded in the Queen's Birthday Honours List to people in (1) Wales, (2) Scotland, (3) Northern Ireland, and (4) each of the regions of England, as a (a) number, and (b) percentage, of that country or region's population.

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Honours (1 Jul 2019)

Lord Blunkett: To ask Her Majesty's Government how many honours were awarded in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List to people in (1) London, and (2) each English city region that has a mayor, per head of population of that city or region.

Higher Education Institutions: Spending - Question (27 Jun 2019)

Lord Blunkett: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what is their estimate of the likely reduction in spend by higher education institutions in England on student teaching and contact time were the recommendations of the independent panel report to the Review into Post-18 Education and Funding implemented.

Higher Education Institutions: Spending - Question (27 Jun 2019)

Lord Blunkett: I beg leave to ask the Question standing in my name on the Order Paper and in so doing draw attention to my interests as set out in the register.

Higher Education Institutions: Spending - Question (27 Jun 2019)

Lord Blunkett: My Lords, given the 8% real-terms reduction inherent in the current fee to 2022, and given that even Boris Johnson has not promised more money for further and higher education, will the Minister make representations to colleagues, both present and future, to recognise the real damage that would result from a further 20% cut in funding for teaching and student contact, and that the value of...

Arrangement of Business (26 Jun 2019)

Lord Blunkett: My Lords, if the Prime Minister accepts a peerage, perhaps we could ensure then that she understands the processes and procedures of this House.

GDP per Capita - Question (11 Jun 2019)

Lord Blunkett: My Lords, is it not true—perhaps the Minister could confirm this—that the England figure hides the most enormous disparity between London and the south-east and the rest of the country? That gap in GVA, GDP and productivity can be met only by a proposal put forward by the commission chaired by the noble Lord, Lord Kerslake, equivalent to the kind of investment and programme put in place...

Courts and Tribunals (Online Procedure) Bill [HL] - Committee: Amendment 34 (10 Jun 2019)

Lord Blunkett: Is the original ever intended to be implemented?

Childcare - Question (6 Jun 2019)

Lord Blunkett: My Lords, let me try to blend the two questions. Nine years ago this month, the coalition Government, in the first round of austerity measures, dealt a mortal blow to the Sure Start programme. Although Sure Start is more than childcare and healthcare, the recently issued IFS report unequivocally demonstrates its value in terms of health outcomes. Surely reinvesting in the original local Sure...

Political Parties: Donation Rules - Question (22 May 2019)

Lord Blunkett: My Lords, I welcome the Minister’s consensual approach, and there is universal applause for the way he handles himself. Would he consider putting himself forward for the leadership of the Tory party?

Procedure Committee - Motion to Agree (21 May 2019)

Lord Blunkett: My Lords, I welcome this modest change. I support what my noble friends Lord Grocott and Lord Rooker, and the noble Lord, Lord Tyler, said but, on a lighter note, and on the Senior Deputy Speaker’s third point, I have never been in favour of flashing. I would like to know how I am going to tell whether the clock is flashing. I hope it will be possible for whoever is on the Woolsack not just...

Heathrow Airport - Question (15 May 2019)

Lord Blunkett: My Lords, I have a registered interest. Does the Minister agree that investing in alternative fuel sources for flights in the future would be more beneficial than people who use airlines regularly preaching to other people that they should stop using them to go on holiday or for commercial purposes—particularly when they have the comfort of flying first class?

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Courts: Greater London (30 Apr 2019)

Lord Blunkett: To ask Her Majesty's Government, in the week beginning 8 April 2019, how many court buildings in the Greater London area were inaccessible to (1) defendants and witnesses with disabilities, (2) members of the public and court staff with disabilities, and (3) court staff with disabilities;  how many of those buildings were only temporarily inaccessible in that week because of broken...

Railways: Midland Main Line - Question (25 Apr 2019)

Lord Blunkett: My Lords, it is very rare that I am in full agreement with the noble Lord, Lord Scriven, but on this issue I am. I welcome the noble Baroness to her post and I think people will say the same about her when she leaves it as we feel about Liz Sugg, which is that she was a damn good Minister. We have some of the worst rolling stock and the worst service on the most-used line. It is 160 miles...

Litter: Schoolchildren - Question (11 Apr 2019)

Lord Blunkett: My Lords, this Question relates directly to year 6 pupils. Does the Minister agree that, once they have completed the tests in May, it would be a very good idea to encourage them to continue picking up litter, to distinguish those aspects that can be recycled for the use of schools to provide some relief from the enormous budget cuts that they are experiencing —for instance, so that paper...

Passports - Question (10 Apr 2019)

Lord Blunkett: My Lords, will the Minister consider an alternative solution? Given the limbo in which the country finds itself, would it not be sensible to put a question mark after “European Union”? Then we could Tippex it out in due course.

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Motion (4 Apr 2019)

Lord Blunkett: I am very grateful; I thank the noble Lord very much indeed for giving way. Was not part of the campaign during the referendum about the sovereignty of Parliament, not the sovereignty of the Government? Is not the delay in passing a Bill already through the Commons bringing this House into disrepute?
