Orders of the Day — Education (Schools) Bill: Abolition of Assisted Places Scheme in England and Wales (5 Jun 1997)

Andrew Lansley: In South Cambridgeshire, the constituency which I am privileged to represent, we have a number of schools with assisted places. It would be very much to the benefit of parents who have children in assisted places in those schools if the Committee passed this group of amendments, thereby delaying by three years the coming into operation of the Bill. There would be several benefits in such a...

Orders of the Day — Education (Schools) Bill: Transitional Arrangements for Existing Assisted Pupils (5 Jun 1997)

Andrew Lansley: Parents' reasonable expectations of what was to happen to their children, in respect of clauses 1 and 2, are clearly now not going to be fulfilled. What does my right hon. Friend believe the Government propose to do about that?

Orders of the Day — Referendums (Scotland and Wales) Bill: Part 1 (4 Jun 1997)

Andrew Lansley: The hon. Gentleman proposes that a Scottish Parliament must, of necessity, control an entirely separate fiscal regime from the one applying to the rest of the UK. That seems to imply that a Scottish Parliament must, also of necessity, be economically independent from the United Kingdom Parliament.

Orders of the Day — Education (Schools) Bill (2 Jun 1997)

Andrew Lansley: It is a great pleasure to be able to congratulate the hon. Member for Cleethorpes (Ms McIsaac). She paid generous tribute to her predecessor, which I know will be appreciated throughout the House, and made an intelligent and thoughtful contribution to the debate, which augurs well. She will be listened to with great attention in the House. Many hon. Members have made maiden speeches. I will...

Orders of the Day — Education (Schools) Bill (2 Jun 1997)

Andrew Lansley: Thank you, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Many parents on low incomes make the choice to send their children to St. Mary's because it is a single-sex girl's school with a Catholic orientation. I visited the school during my election campaign and asked the girls where they would go to school if their parents were not to have the choice available to them through the assisted places scheme. The answer was...

Orders of the Day — Education (Schools) Bill (2 Jun 1997)

Andrew Lansley: May I add to what my hon. Friend the Member for Daventry (Mr. Boswell) said? It is a matter not simply of SSAs, but of the ability of local education authorities to pass money through to schools. The hon. Member for Cambridge (Mrs. Campbell) spoke of cuts in a school in her constituency, yet she will know that a Conservative administration in Cambridgeshire, which was returned on 1 May, is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Security: Lone Parents (2 Jun 1997)

Andrew Lansley: Perhaps the right hon. Lady will now tell us whether she proposes to pay additional benefits to lone parents over and above the benefits that would be payable to married couples in the same circumstances. Will she pay those extra benefits? Will she give us a clear answer?

Orders of the Day — Referendums (Scotland and Wales) Bill (21 May 1997)

Andrew Lansley: When he expands on the detail of his proposals, will the Minister explain how he proposes to give a voice to the many Scots and Welsh people who are not resident in Scotland or Wales, but who feel deeply about constitutional change affecting their place of birth, the place of their previous residence or the place of their possible future residence?

Orders of the Day — Referendums (Scotland and Wales) Bill (21 May 1997)

Andrew Lansley: Thank you very much, Mr. Deputy Speaker, for the opportunity to make my maiden speech. It is a daunting prospect, not least because I follow the exemplary and entertaining speeches of the hon. Members for Aberdeen, South (Miss Begg) and for Cumbernauld and Kilsyth (Ms McKenna). I am more than happy to pay the warmest tribute to my predecessor, Sir Anthony Grant, who was the hon. Member for...
