Graham Brady: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what recent discussions he has had with Turkish counterparts on antisemitism.
Graham Brady: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what recent discussions he has had with his counterparts in Latvia and Lithuania on Holocaust revisionism.
Graham Brady: Order. I hesitate to interrupt the hon. Lady, but we really need to move on to the Minister’s winding up speech now.
Graham Brady: If you finish it very quickly.
Graham Brady: We have just under 25 minutes to take the SNP spokesman, if she would like to contribute, the Opposition spokesman, the Minister and the Member who moved the motion, if he would like to make a brief response at the end. Again, I will not recommend specific times, but I am sure that all the speakers will be conscious of the time limits.
Graham Brady: At least five Back-Bench Members want to contribute. For the convenience of the House, I will say that I would like to move on to winding-up speeches by 5.10 pm at the very latest. I will not impose a time limit now, but I suggest that, if hon. Members could keep their contributions to no more than six or seven minutes, we might hope to get everybody into the debate.
Graham Brady: Order. I should make it clear that the rules of procedure do not allow for Opposition spokespeople to participate in half-hour debates—they are exactly the same as the rules that apply to Adjournment debates in the main Chamber.
Graham Brady: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what recent discussions he has had with his counterparts in Saudia Arabia on antisemitism.
Graham Brady: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what estimate her Department has made of the number of SEND pupils in each local authority area in England in the most recent year for which figures are available; and what the cost of educating those pupils in each of those areas was in that year.
Graham Brady: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what estimate she has made of the number of secondary schools in England that will not meet the £4,800 floor per pupil funding in (a) 2018-19 and (b) 2019-20; and in each case what estimate she has made of the cost of raising those schools to the floor per pupil amount.
Graham Brady: This is very good news for schools as they prepare to break up for the summer holidays. May I thank my right hon. Friend for engaging so constructively with colleagues across the House to make this progress? I particularly welcome her focus on bringing up the worst-funded schools, which has been so critically important for so long.
Graham Brady: Is my right hon. Friend aware that the quarterly economic survey of the Greater Manchester chamber of commerce predicts economic growth at 3.25% annually, which it has been, broadly, since 2013? Is he further aware that Manchester airport is planning a £1 billion investment in the coming years? Does that not indicate a welcome rebalancing of the economy, underpinned by sound economic...
Graham Brady: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, what assessment his Department has made of the likely amount of council tax revenue that was foregone in the most recent year for which figures are available as a result of inaccurate banding of properties for council tax purposes.
Graham Brady: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, how many properties situated less than 120 metres away from the proposed line of route for phase 2b of High Speed 2 will not be eligible for compensation because they fail to meet the criterion that at least 25 per cent of the land must be within the designated Rural Support Zone.
Graham Brady: You have run out.
Graham Brady: Order. Seven Members have risen to speak and we have less than 40 minutes before the wind-ups are due to begin, so I propose a time limit of six minutes on contributions.
Graham Brady: The Prime Minister knows that Trafford schools are the best in the country, but they are also in one of f40’s worst-funded areas. Perversely, the draft funding formula would actually cut funding to Trafford schools, not increase it. When she reviews the draft proposals, will she please look for a new formula that guarantees that all the worst-funded areas see an increase in funding, not...
Graham Brady: Order. Before Victoria Borwick responds, I have to say that although it is in order for Members to refer to notes on electronic devices, reading emails that have just been received is to be deprecated.
Graham Brady: The Minister knows that Trafford is the best performing local authority area in the north of England, yet it is also one of the f40 group of worst-funded authorities. I am sure he can imagine the concern that last week’s draft funding formula will lead to all secondary schools and a number of primary schools being worse off. Will he look at the nature of the funding formula as a matter...
Graham Brady: I will not press the Minister too much on detail, but will he be clear that the Greater Manchester spatial framework is a matter for local determination and that the Government in no way seek to force on Greater Manchester certain figures for housing development or the removal of green belt?
