Department for Education (1 Jul 2019)

Tim Loughton: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Stretford and Urmston (Kate Green), a fellow member of the Home Affairs Committee. May I endorse her last point about children coming from Europe and assessments? However, there is a bigger issue about asylum-seeking children, who often have family connections over here. Certainly from my experience—having visited Greece, in particular, along...

Department for Education (1 Jul 2019)

Tim Loughton: My right hon. Friend is absolutely right that the situation is not just confined to coastal areas. However, the problem is that there tend to be more deprived communities in coastal areas around the country. Seemingly affluent shire counties such as West Sussex disguise pockets of deprivation. We have high special educational needs in many of our schools and we need to focus more on bringing...

Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill: Examination by the Comptroller and Auditor General (19 Jun 2019)

Tim Loughton: What is the downside of including the archaeological and historical significance of the building on the face of the Bill as an equal consideration? For some reason, the hon. Gentleman wants to discriminate against the uniqueness and the constitutional historical importance of the building. If anyone is guilty of discrimination, it is him. I just want to see everything on a level playing field...

Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill: Examination by the Comptroller and Auditor General (19 Jun 2019)

Tim Loughton: We do not know that for sure, and I defer to the hon. Gentleman’s expertise, but it is a good story—

Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill: Examination by the Comptroller and Auditor General (19 Jun 2019)

Tim Loughton: —and we should have part of that story—

Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill: Examination by the Comptroller and Auditor General (19 Jun 2019)

Tim Loughton: If the hon. Gentleman turned up to meetings of the all-party parliamentary archaeology group more often, we could have the discussion there.

Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill: Examination by the Comptroller and Auditor General (19 Jun 2019)

Tim Loughton: That table is part of the heritage of this place. It is thought that it may have been broken up by Cromwell to symbolise the fact that the monarchy was over and the new rule had begun. It is a really important part of the Palace’s heritage, and I think that it should be brought back from the museum and displayed here, with a considered explanation of where its origins and historical...

Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill: Examination by the Comptroller and Auditor General (19 Jun 2019)

Tim Loughton: Quite. I think that mine is a reasonable amendment. I think it is an oversight that it has not been included in the Bill, and I hope that the Minister will come to his senses, agree with the amendment, and add it.

Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill: Examination by the Comptroller and Auditor General (19 Jun 2019)

Tim Loughton: I would have mentioned that. The Cloisters are rather interesting because of the bomb damage during the war. The Labour research unit was there, and in one office—I doubt its occupants realised this—is the medieval altar of one of the early Plantagenet kings from when this was a royal palace. Nobody ever sees it; it is not appreciated, and it is not in the guidebooks at all. That sort of...

Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill: Examination by the Comptroller and Auditor General (19 Jun 2019)

Tim Loughton: I will come on to that in a minute. It is said that all archaeology is destruction, because when you take something out of its context you cannot return it to that context. It is therefore absolutely essential that the context of what we find—part of archaeology is what you do not find and might have expected to—is absolutely respected and recorded in order to fit together the jigsaw...

Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill: Examination by the Comptroller and Auditor General (19 Jun 2019)

Tim Loughton: My right hon. Friend makes a very valid point. I had not considered the prospect of mummified chimney sweeps as part of the archaeological excavations. I am pleased to hear that this issue was considered in pre-legislative scrutiny, which makes it even more surprising and even more of an omission that it did not make its way into the Bill. It is absolutely crucial. My right hon. Friend and I...

Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill: Examination by the Comptroller and Auditor General (19 Jun 2019)

Tim Loughton: I absolutely do not accept that—the two are not mutually exclusive. The list of considerations that the Sponsor Body must “have regard to”—not “have a veto on” or “be a more important consideration”—includes “value for money”, “safety and security of people”, the protection of the environment, being “sustainable”, ensuring that it is accessible to visitors,...

Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill: Examination by the Comptroller and Auditor General (19 Jun 2019)

Tim Loughton: My right hon. Friend is dealing with the really modern stuff—I will go back a bit further in a minute. As you know more than many, Mr Deputy Speaker, the Palace of Westminster is one of the United Kingdom’s most famous landmarks for UK citizens and it attracts thousands of tourists every year. The reason Parliament is committed to investing billions of pounds in the restoration and...

Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill: Examination by the Comptroller and Auditor General (19 Jun 2019)

Tim Loughton: The hon. Gentleman does not know. Access might be provided through the cloisters if there were some compromise between access and—[Interruption.] That is what it is all about. It is impossible to compromise between two things if one of them is listed in the Bill and the other is apparently inconsequential. That is the whole point. Let us take an example. Last year, as part of the 100th...

Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill: Examination by the Comptroller and Auditor General (19 Jun 2019)

Tim Loughton: I will do the rather unusual job, Mr Deputy Speaker, of talking to my amendment, which is amendment 5. I am delighted that the shadow Leader of the House, the hon. Member for Walsall South (Valerie Vaz), added her name to it. I am sure that will help to persuade the House that it would be a worthy addition to the Bill. Amendment 5 adds an additional consideration for the Sponsor Body to have...
