EU Settlement Scheme: Looked-after Children and Care Leavers — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (3 Sep 2019)

Tim Loughton: I appreciate that very important point. It has been the subject of some of the discussions we have had with previous Home Secretaries. We have discussed not only what happens if there is a no-deal scenario but what happens if there is an agreement. If there is an agreement, the terms that should apply to children seeking to be reunited with families need to be at least as generous as those...

EU Settlement Scheme: Looked-after Children and Care Leavers — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (3 Sep 2019)

Tim Loughton: The hon. Lady is absolutely right; in fact, she has pre-empted what I will now not bother to say later. [Laughter.] As she says, 16 and 17-year-olds have been assimilated with adults, but children in this country are those under the age of 18. So, it is absolutely essential that that definition is applied to all children, not least those most vulnerable of children. And as a result of schemes...

EU Settlement Scheme: Looked-after Children and Care Leavers — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (3 Sep 2019)

Tim Loughton: My hon. Friend makes an important point. Although we are talking primarily about the looked-after children population in England and Wales, there is a particular issue in Scotland. I had not realised that the proportion was that high. It is really important that money going into education, which is also for the wider benefit of children in the social care system, is targeted at those children...

Kew Gardens (Leases) (No. 3) Bill [Lords]: Youth Services (24 Jul 2019)

Tim Loughton: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on his report. He and I attended the same school, with just a few years in between us. What he has just suggested as his No. 1 recommendation was actually the case some seven years ago, when the youth brief was within the Department for Education as part of the children and families brief. As a result, we produced the “Positive for Youth” report in 2011,...

Kew Gardens (Leases) (No. 3) Bill [Lords]: Youth Services (24 Jul 2019)

Tim Loughton: As one of those who helped to design the National Citizen Service, I am obviously rather protective of it. I pay tribute to Matt Hyde, as has the hon. Gentleman. The Scouts have been very supportive of the NCS, and obviously the NCS has had a lot of investment, but will he take it from me that that should not be seen as displacing investment from youth services? It is not just the cost of the...

Kew Gardens (Leases) (No. 3) Bill [Lords]: Youth Services (24 Jul 2019)

Tim Loughton: My hon. Friend is not banging on at all; he is making an important speech, and I congratulate him on the report. On the question of qualifications and the recruitment of youth workers, I completely agree that we need well qualified youth workers, because we have lost many of them. Would he support a scheme along the lines of Teach First, Step Up to Social Work or Frontline, for example,...

Exiting the European Union (Transport) (23 Jul 2019)

Tim Loughton: I am listening intently to the Minister’s remarks about this extremely interesting and important SI that we are about to pass. Has he considered the impact of climate change on the use of cableways in, particularly, Scottish ski resorts, which are probably the biggest users of such technology? These regulations may be completely redundant in a few years’ time if we have no snow and no ski...

Tibet (Reciprocal Access) (23 Jul 2019)

Tim Loughton: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to require the Secretary of State to report annually on restrictions on access by UK nationals to Tibet in comparison with other regions of China; to make provision to deny persons involved in imposing such restrictions permission to enter the UK; and for connected purposes. In May, in my role as chair of the all-party group for Tibet, I...

Decriminalisation of Abortion (23 Jul 2019)

Tim Loughton: I supported decriminalisation, I supported the regularising of the abortion law in Northern Ireland last week, and on Friday I shall visit my local BPAS clinic. But changing the law is only part of it. Last year, I was out with an ambulance crew and we were called out to a woman who had been at an abortion clinic and taken the pills. She was bleeding heavily and had been taken very ill, and...

Health and Social Care: Health Inequalities (23 Jul 2019)

Tim Loughton: One of the best ways of getting early public health help across the doorstep is by investing in health visitors to give that much needed early support, especially to new parents to help to ensure that every child gets the best start in life. One of the best achievements of the Cameron Government was the creation of 4,200 additional health visitors. Does the Minister share my concern that...

Early Years Family Support (16 Jul 2019)

Tim Loughton: It is a great privilege to follow the hon. Member for Warwick and Leamington (Matt Western). I, too, worship at the altar of my right hon. Friend the Member for South Northamptonshire (Andrea Leadsom). She is the great authority on this subject and I pay tribute to her. I also pay limited tribute to the hon. Member for Manchester Central (Lucy Powell), given I am no longer her favourite...

Early Years Family Support (16 Jul 2019)

Tim Loughton: Hold on a minute. I will give way first to the hon. Member for Bath (Wera Hobhouse) and then to the hon. Member for Manchester Central (Lucy Powell).

Early Years Family Support (16 Jul 2019)

Tim Loughton: I think that the hon. Lady is right. I shall come on to the way in which it is all joined up. “Adverse childhood experience” has become more common parlance now. Essentially, it goes back to attachment and all the stuff that Bowlby was talking about, often as a lone voice, many decades ago. However, it is true that we can now relate it to many of the challenges that we see as individual...
