Estimates Day: Department for Education (6 Jul 2022)

Siobhain McDonagh: I welcome the new Secretary of State to her place. I hope she has an ambitious plan for however many hours she will be in office before the downfall of her Government—but this is no laughing matter. The fact that we have had three Education Secretaries in three years tells us all we need to know about the Conservatives’ priorities. Theirs is a party with no plan, no ambition and no vision...

Estimates Day: Department for Education (6 Jul 2022)

Siobhain McDonagh: Further to my hon. Friend’s intervention, the other side of the coin for local authorities is finding temporary accommodation anywhere for families with children.

Driving Licences and Dangerous Drivers (14 Jun 2022)

Siobhain McDonagh: When the timetable is drawn up for that consultation, will the Minister or her colleagues make Members aware so that they can make contributions? It seems to me that, where someone dies in a road traffic accident and the driver is found to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs, it would be entirely reasonable to have a blanket law that applies to everybody to withdraw the driver’s...

Driving Licences and Dangerous Drivers (14 Jun 2022)

Siobhain McDonagh: I beg to move, That this House has considered driving licences and dangerous drivers. I am grateful to the Minister for her time today, given the sensitivity of the issues that we will be discussing.

It was heartbreaking...
