Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Academic A-levels: Knowsley (11 Dec 2017)

Maria Eagle: What steps she is taking to ensure that academic A-levels are taught in the Metropolitan Borough of Knowsley.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Academic A-levels: Knowsley (11 Dec 2017)

Maria Eagle: I thank the Secretary of State for that answer, but in a number of meetings with Knowsley MPs over the past year, her Ministers have promised to bring in a recognised excellent provider to restore academic A-level provision to Knowsley. The provision of some college vocational A-levels is a welcome development, but it is not enough. What progress has the Department made on delivering the...

Tolls on the Mersey Crossings — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (5 Dec 2017)

Maria Eagle: I congratulate the hon. Member for City of Chester (Christian Matheson) on obtaining this timely debate, and on the way he set out some of the concerns that have been raised with him. Generally speaking, it is certainly better to have the new bridge than not to have it, and I congratulate Halton Borough Council on taking on the necessary and ambitious scheme to get the bridge built and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Tyres: Safety (30 Nov 2017)

Maria Eagle: If he will ban the use of tyres more than 10 years old on public service vehicles.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Tyres: Safety (30 Nov 2017)

Maria Eagle: My Tyres (Buses and Coaches) Bill, which was published this week, is down on the Order Paper for a Second Reading tomorrow. Can the Minister confirm that he and his party will not seek to oppose the legislation?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (20 Nov 2017)

Maria Eagle: A third of the 110 firearms incidents on Merseyside in the past year resulted in injury—indeed, there was yet another gun injury in my constituency last month. What will the Home Secretary do to make sure that Merseyside police can deal with that increasing threat?

Israel: Meetings (7 Nov 2017)

Maria Eagle: This appears to have been a gross breach of the code of ministerial conduct—certainly every code I have ever seen—and, as a Minister of nine years’ standing in previous Governments, I would have thought that this was a resigning matter. The Minister, for whom I have a lot of respect, has said that no officials attended the meetings. Has the Secretary of State provided a full...

Tyres (Buses and Coaches) (31 Oct 2017)

Maria Eagle: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to introduce limits on the age of tyres on buses and coaches; and for connected purposes. I heard your homily, Mr Speaker, about the benefits of persistence, and I hope that the coach and bus industry has heard it too. This Bill would make it unlawful to operate a public service vehicle with tyres that exceed the age of 10 years, require...

Iran: Vauxhall (Redundancies) (16 Oct 2017)

Maria Eagle: rose—

Iran: Vauxhall (Redundancies) (16 Oct 2017)

Maria Eagle: Thank you, Mr Speaker; it is not helpful to call it a contest. The Minister keeps saying that she wants frictionless access to the single market, but most of her colleagues in Government, in particular many in the Cabinet, are talking up the idea of leaving with no deal and walking out of the single market and the customs union. Given that the Ellesmere Port plant is weakened by going to a...

Education Funding (South Liverpool) (10 Oct 2017)

Maria Eagle: I beg to move, That this House has considered education funding in south Liverpool. I am grateful to have obtained this debate about education funding in south Liverpool. I intend to discuss a situation in my part of the Liverpool City Council area and in Halewood, which is in the Garston and Halewood constituency but falls within the Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council area. Some of my...

Education Funding (South Liverpool) (10 Oct 2017)

Maria Eagle: I will indeed—and I think my hon. Friend has himself just pushed the Minister for a response. I am sure the Minister will want to make some points in reply and set out his understanding of the impact of the national funding formula, which seems not to advantage schools in our area as much as I would like. Liverpool City Council told me that, according to its calculations, the Garston...

Education Funding (South Liverpool) (10 Oct 2017)

Maria Eagle: My right hon. Friend is correct. He and I, as representatives of the borough, know that there is an issue of attainment in Knowsley schools. It is a long-standing one, which we continue to try to tackle, as Governments of all stripes have tried to do. It is certainly not ameliorated and improved by taking money away from schools. That will just deepen and worsen the attainment gap that is...

Education Funding (South Liverpool) (10 Oct 2017)

Maria Eagle: I believe it will be—my right hon. Friend is correct. That is essential. I hope that we can make a difference and that the Government will come through to help us get academic A-level provision back in the borough, because if that does not happen, in due course—this will not take long—young families will not locate themselves in Knowsley. They will not think it is a place to...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Cultural Industries (14 Sep 2017)

Maria Eagle: What steps she is taking to protect the interests of cultural industries after the UK exits the EU.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Cultural Industries (14 Sep 2017)

Maria Eagle: Given that leaving the EU will result in new rules that restrict freedom of movement, and with music exports growing enormously and worth more than £4 billion to the UK economy, what will the Secretary of State do to ensure that the UK’s touring musicians—they and their crews can, at the moment, just go to Europe to play—do not face the logistical nightmare and extra...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Energy Supply (12 Sep 2017)

Maria Eagle: What steps he is taking to ensure the security of the UK’s energy supply after the UK leaves the EU.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Energy Supply (12 Sep 2017)

Maria Eagle: Does the Minister accept that it is vital that we stay in the European internal energy market after Brexit in order to facilitate tariff-free trading of gas and electricity across borders, which we currently have? I know that the Department has been busy trying to find out why 20% of its staff have left without telling it why, according to a report in The Times, but when will the Government...

Schools Update (17 Jul 2017)

Maria Eagle: Figures from the Secretary of State’s Department showed that 21 schools in my constituency were to lose out under her plans for the national funding formula before her announcement today. I am concerned that they still will, so will she guarantee today that those schools that were going to lose out on the basis of the formula no longer will, and that they will actually see gains?

Business of the House (6 Jul 2017)

Maria Eagle: After Home Office questions on Monday—when the Home Secretary claimed police funding had been protected, although it has not been on Merseyside—there was yet another firearms discharge in my constituency. That makes over 100 shootings across Merseyside in the last 18 months, including five murders. May we have a debate in Government time about the increase in gun crime across...
