Debate on the Address: [First Day] (17 May 2005)

David Evennett: It is a great privilege, honour and opportunity for me to speak after eight years having been out of this place, and it is pleasure to be here and to debate the Loyal Address and the Queen's Speech.

During...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Antisocial Behaviour (23 May 2005)

David Evennett: The Minister is somewhat complacent on these matters. I agree with the hon. Member for Wirral, South (Ben Chapman), as in my constituency antisocial behaviour was the biggest issue on the doorstep during the election campaign. Does the Minister agree that we really just need more police on the beat, and more police able to deal with such issues? In that way, we will get the confidence back...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Skills: Adult Education (16 Jun 2005)

David Evennett: I thank the Minister for his response. Is he aware that there is growing anger and concern in Bexley borough that from September fees will increase, courses will be cut and concessions reduced for adult education students because of cuts in the Learning and Skills Council's funding? Does he agree that further education should be not just for skills, development and training, but for leisure...

Special Schools and Special Educational Needs (22 Jun 2005)

David Evennett: I am delighted to be able to participate in this important debate on special schools and special educational needs. We have had a high-quality debate. I enjoyed the comments made by the hon. Member for Huddersfield (Mr. Sheerman), as I always did was when I was previously a Member of the House. My hon. Friend the Member for Forest of Dean (Mr. Harper) made an excellent speech. I am pleased...

Special Schools and Special Educational Needs (22 Jun 2005)

David Evennett: I am interested in the hon. Gentleman's point, but I do not think that he is correct. If he looks at the figures, I think that he will find that there are now 6,000 fewer places in special schools. Special schools have been closed while others are threatened with closure.

Special Schools and Special Educational Needs (22 Jun 2005)

David Evennett: No, we must give other hon. Members the opportunity to speak. The Government exert pressure to encourage inclusion by trying to get more children into mainstream schools. That is good in some cases, but we must analyse the current situation. We must determine what we think is best, where the resources can be used best and, ultimately, what is best for children. I am worried that children with...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Licensing Act (11 Jul 2005)

David Evennett: Is the Minister aware of the grave concerns of my constituents about 24-hour licensing and the consequences that they fear of an increase in binge drinking and antisocial behaviour? That is already a great problem in many of our town centres. Surely, this measure will make it worse.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Jul 2005)

David Evennett: Our NHS is obviously the envy of the world and we should congratulate all those who worked so hard last week in the wake of the terrorist activity. Is the Prime Minister aware that many of the hospital trusts in south-east London are overspent and running out of money? Why does he think that is happening; what is he planning to do about it; and will he reassure patients that services will not...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Skills: Careers Guidance (14 Jul 2005)

David Evennett: When the Minister produces her plans later in the year, may I urge her to involve business more in careers guidance, and also to consider students with higher academic achievement? Connexions seems to have done a good job in some areas for those who are less academic, but not such a good job for those with higher academic achievement.
