Brexit Negotiations (3 Oct 2019)

Henry Bellingham: May I congratulate the Prime Minister on his statesmanship, and indeed ingenuity, in delivering an offer that is serious and credible? If my email is anything to go by, there is huge support in my constituency. May I take the Prime Minister to paragraph 1b of the protocol note, which makes it clear that 100% of these unique areas of collaboration will continue? Will he find time to ring the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (2 Oct 2019)

Henry Bellingham: May I ask the First Secretary of State to turn his attention to Hong Kong? Yesterday’s events were truly awful. Obviously, the people suffering most are the victims of violence on both sides, but now a number of UK companies with interests in Hong Kong are being adversely affected. As one of the guarantors of the Sino-British joint declaration supporting one country, two systems, is there...

Yemen (1 Oct 2019)

Henry Bellingham: I thank the Minister and his Department for their work in helping to alleviate this appalling humanitarian crisis. They have set a superb example to other countries. What does the Minister make of the recent clashes between the Yemeni Government and the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council, which recently seized control of Aden? Surely everything possible must be done to prevent a civil...

Northern Ireland (5 Sep 2019)

Henry Bellingham: In congratulating the new Secretary of State, may I ask him what he plans to do about stopping the relentless hounding of Army and police veterans in respect of alleged historical crimes when most of the evidence has disappeared? What is he going to do about it?

School Funding: East Anglia — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (3 Sep 2019)

Henry Bellingham: Will the Minister look at the point about the long lead-in time in training more SENCOs? There is obviously a shortage at the moment and that could hold things up.

School Funding: East Anglia — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (3 Sep 2019)

Henry Bellingham: I congratulate the hon. Member for Norwich South (Clive Lewis) again on securing the debate.

School Funding: East Anglia — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (3 Sep 2019)

Henry Bellingham: Thank you, Mr Gapes. I made exactly the same mistake when I was chairing in here the other day, so I have every sympathy. Once again, I congratulate the hon. Member for Norwich South. He and I have worked closely on this agenda. We may differ in our outlook on various matters concerning education, but we have a shared sense of complete and utter respect for the teaching profession in Norfolk,...

School Funding: East Anglia — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (3 Sep 2019)

Henry Bellingham: There is a lot of truth in what my hon. Friend says: Educate Norfolk asked for a significant real-terms increase. I made a note at the time that one of the figures they pointed out was that the schools budget in 2017-18—that is two financial years ago—was £41 billion. They felt that over the next four financial years it should go up by at least £10 billion. As we know, under the...

School Funding: East Anglia — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (3 Sep 2019)

Henry Bellingham: The devil will be in the detail, but it is incredibly important to get the money flowing quickly. The Minister can look at that, but, as I understand it, this is new money coming into the Department. It will mean that every school will get a real-terms funding rise next year, and hopefully that will have a significant impact on our schools. Secondary schools will receive an increased minimum...

School Funding: East Anglia — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (3 Sep 2019)

Henry Bellingham: I will just say to the hon. Gentleman that, yes, it is not all coming in one go, but there will be a £2.6 billion increase next year in 2020-21 and, if this Parliament goes its full five years, in 2021-22 it will be £4.8 billion and then up to £7.1 billion. This is new, real money, now. It is incredibly important that we recognise that point. We can argue that it will not be enough, but I...

School Funding: East Anglia — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (3 Sep 2019)

Henry Bellingham: What I would say to the hon. Lady is very simple: the fairer funding for schools formula did indeed discriminate against a lot of small schools. I will come on to that in a moment, because what we need to know is whether the small schools in my constituency, in her constituency and in the constituencies of my right hon. and hon. Friends will see significant benefits. I would suggest, on the...

School Funding: East Anglia — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (3 Sep 2019)

Henry Bellingham: I agree with my hon. Friend. Maybe the Minister can comment on how quickly we can get those extra SENCOs in place and what extra support there will be for their training. Like the hon. Member for Norwich South, I have come across many schools around my constituency that are extremely concerned about the problems and challenges they have faced. Quite a few of the extra financial challenges...

School Funding: East Anglia — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (3 Sep 2019)

Henry Bellingham: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on securing this timely and important debate. He and I have been working with Educate Norfolk and Norfolk heads over the past year or so. When we asked them what funding increases would make a significant difference, they came up with the sorts of figures the Government have just announced. I appreciate there is a long lead-in time, but does he agree that...

School Funding: East Anglia — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (3 Sep 2019)

Henry Bellingham: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that there is also a problem in Norfolk with some schools that went into major building programmes under PPI? We heard at one school that we visited in Taverham that after 6.30 pm the school does not belong to the teachers and that they cannot have outside events there because it is in the hands of PPI managers.
