Safeguarding Adults with Learning Disabilities — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (17 Oct 2017)

Phil Wilson: Order. I got the procedure the wrong way round and called the SNP spokesman before the hon. Member for North Swindon (Justin Tomlinson), so I apologise for that.

Royal Mail Delivery Office Closures — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (11 Oct 2017)

Phil Wilson: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing the debate. I want to make an observation that I hope she will agree with. There is a general decline in our parcel service, which is exacerbated by the closures of facilities. I think 38% of parcels arrive late, 28% of parcels are left in insecure areas, and 28% of people get a note through the door saying that nobody was in when there was. What I...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (6 Sep 2017)

Phil Wilson: In her party conference speech last year, the Prime Minister said that “existing workers’ legal rights will continue to be guaranteed in law—and they will be guaranteed as long as I am Prime Minister.” Will she tell the House how long that will be?

Taxi Trade — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Phil Wilson: Order. I am imposing a four-minute limit on speeches now, because I want to bring in the Front-Bench speakers at half-past 3.

Taxi Trade — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Phil Wilson: Order. I remind the hon. Gentleman to keep his intervention short and to ask a question, not make a speech.

Taxi Trade — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Phil Wilson: I do not intend to put a time limit on speeches at the moment. I think we will fit everybody in, so long as everybody bears in mind that other hon. Members want to speak. I want to bring in the Front-Bench spokespeople at about 3.30 pm.

Debate on the Address: Health, Social Care and Security (28 Jun 2017)

Phil Wilson: I primarily want to talk about the state of GP services, with particular reference to a temporarily closed surgery in Trimdon village in my constituency, to try to make a point about the crisis in GP services. While the closure is only temporary, the surgery will open again next month with limited services. I want to start with a few words about the national picture. One in four patients now...

School Funding: North-east of England — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (26 Apr 2017)

Phil Wilson: The Minister is talking as if there is not a problem. If everything in the garden is so rosy, why is the headteacher of Sedgefield Community College saying that the Government protecting the budget is an utter myth?

School Funding: North-east of England — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (26 Apr 2017)

Phil Wilson: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Betts. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Washington and Sunderland West (Mrs Hodgson) who secured this important debate. I pay tribute to my hon. Friends the Members for Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland (Tom Blenkinsop) and for Hartlepool (Mr Wright), who will be leaving our ranks. I am sad to see them go. They are both...

School Funding: North-east of England — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (26 Apr 2017)

Phil Wilson: The figures have been quoted by headteachers. They know what the budget pressures are and they say that the budgets are being cut. They say that they are under pressure and are losing funds to the equivalent of the number of teachers I mentioned. Woodham Academy will lose the equivalent of five teachers. Hurworth School, another excellent school in my constituency, will lose the equivalent of...

School Funding: North-east of England — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (26 Apr 2017)

Phil Wilson: I will not. The Minister will have plenty of time to make his comments at the end. I want to get through my speech as other people want to make their comments. There are also cost pressures and budget changes for the primary schools. For Heighington School in Darlington, which is in my patch, that is £125,000. The primary schools in Sedgefield—Sedgefield Primary School and...

School Funding: North-east of England — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (26 Apr 2017)

Phil Wilson: There is an element of truth in that, and it comes down to the core of my next point, on which I would love to hear the Minister’s comments. In state schools, 40% of coursework used to go towards a final GCSE mark, and there was a chance to sit it in January or June. That cannot be done now. If someone does an IGCSE in a public school, they have the chance to do that, and the result is...

School Funding: North-east of England — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (26 Apr 2017)

Phil Wilson: The Minister can shake his head, but I have pupils and headteachers coming to see me about this. It is fundamentally unfair when people in public schools have a better chance in life than those children who are sent to state schools.

School Funding: North-east of England — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (26 Apr 2017)

Phil Wilson: I am going to wind up. The Minister can answer all the points as he wants and I am sure he will. We have a fundamentally unfair system and it needs to be addressed. I am sure my hon. Friends can see that Government Members are shaking their heads. Am I surprised? No, I am not, because they do not believe it is unfair.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Night Flights: Regional Airports (30 Mar 2017)

Phil Wilson: What plans do the Government have for nationalising regional airports?

Vinovium House (8 Mar 2017)

Phil Wilson: Quite a few of the staff who work at Vinovium House live in Sedgefield. I have had several emails from staff who have a deep anxiety about the way they have been treated, their futures and where they might be transferred to. This is not just an issue for Bishop Auckland and Sedgefield. The staff live all over County Durham, and a lot of families will be affected.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (22 Feb 2017)

Phil Wilson: In the Prime Minister’s Lancaster House speech, she said of a future trade agreement with the EU:

Petition - English Language and English Literature Gcse-Level Examinations (1 Feb 2017)

Phil Wilson: This petition is being lodged, and was organised by, year 11 pupils at Greenfield Community College. I would like to put on record the names of Aidan Wong, Melissa Foster and Christina Davies. The petition states: The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to provide a level playing field in the rules applied to English Language and English Literature...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill (31 Jan 2017)

Phil Wilson: I campaigned passionately during last year’s referendum for Britain to remain in the EU and still feel passionately about it. I remain deeply concerned about the outcome and what is to follow, but the British people voted to leave. As strongly as I hold my views, it is only right that the wishes of the majority of the British people should be respected, because the real decision to...

New Partnership with the EU (17 Jan 2017)

Phil Wilson: The Prime Minister said in her speech that we are leaving the single market and that she is going to negotiate a free trade agreement with the EU. She said that the free trade agreement “may take in elements of current single market arrangements in certain areas”. She continued: “If so…it is reasonable that we should make an appropriate contribution.” Will the...
