Damian Hinds: What steps he is taking to support farmers.

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Support for Farmers (19 Mar 2020)

Damian Hinds: Right now, DEFRA, quite rightly, is focused totally on the food-supply questions that we have been talking about, but will my right hon. Friend also confirm that he will look to move forward with a trade and standards commission for food quality for UK consumers and for a fair field for our farmers?

Educational Settings (18 Mar 2020)

Damian Hinds: I thank my right hon. Friend for the breadth of the statement today. Necessarily, there is still a lot of detail to be worked out, not least on qualifications. For me, in talking to headteachers today, it has been humbling—not surprising, but humbling—to see the depth of their commitment to supporting their family and the whole of our society through this crisis. May I ask my right hon....

Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Mar 2020)

Damian Hinds: I welcome confirmation that routine Ofsted inspections will be postponed, and will the Prime Minister join me in commending schools, leaders and teachers on all they have been doing in supporting families through this crisis?

Covid-19 (16 Mar 2020)

Damian Hinds: My hon. Friend the Member for Folkestone and Hythe (Damian Collins) talked about the importance of information consistency, but some constituents are seeing competing messages which look like they come from credible sources and are then passed on in good faith. In the worst cases, not only do they mislead, they can even be dangerous. May I encourage my right hon. Friend to continue his work...

Income Tax (Charge) (11 Mar 2020)

Damian Hinds: It is always a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Islwyn (Chris Evans), who made some very important points about our high streets. It has been a great privilege to witness this afternoon truly brilliant maiden speeches on both sides of the House from new Members who are going to be great assets to this House and to our democracy. It has also been a pleasure to hear what the Government...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: *No heading* (9 Mar 2020)

Damian Hinds: What steps she is taking to ensure that universal credit claimants benefit financially from moving into work.

Education: Free School Holiday Activities and Meals (2 Mar 2020)

Damian Hinds: Does my hon. Friend agree that the measure of the Government’s commitment is in their record? We have already extended eligibility for free school meals on no fewer than three occasions. Hundreds more schools are set to benefit from the national breakfast programme and thousands more children are set to benefit from holiday activities this coming summer.

Tax Avoidance and Evasion (25 Feb 2020)

Damian Hinds: This is an important subject for debate this afternoon, first because we need tax receipts to fund our public services and, secondly, because as my hon. Friend the Member for Thirsk and Malton (Kevin Hollinrake) said, people expect to see fairness. They expect to see everyone and every entity shouldering their fair share of the burden. Sadly, there are people who have an interest in trying...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Unemployment Benefits (14 Feb 2020)

Damian Hinds: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what estimate she has made of variations in the ratio of unemployment benefit recipients, including job seeker's allowance and universal credit to ILO-definition unemployment by (a) age group, (b) region, (c) previous occupation and (d) other segmentation in the last five years.

Damian Hinds: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what assessment she has made of the trend in the ratio of unemployment benefit recipients, including job seeker's allowance and universal credit to ILO-definition unemployment in the last five years.

Online Harms Legislation (13 Feb 2020)

Damian Hinds: I very much welcome this world-leading approach, but can my hon. Friend reassure me that, in bearing down on harms to children and young people, the legislation will cover not only the promotion and glamorisation of self-harm and eating disorders but their prevalence and normalisation on social media and the internet, which ultimately has greater reach?

Written Answers — Department for Education: Free School Meals (13 Feb 2020)

Damian Hinds: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what the distribution of GCSE Attainment 8 results was for (a) children eligible for free school meals, (b) children not eligible for free school meals and (c) all children in (i) London and (ii) England in the last 12 months for which data are available.

Apprenticeship Levy — [Caroline Nokes in the Chair] (11 Feb 2020)

Damian Hinds: It is a great pleasure to speak in this debate. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Gloucester (Richard Graham), who, along with my right hon. Friend the Member for Harlow (Robert Halfon), has done so much to promote apprenticeships and to ensure they are a regular subject of debate here in Parliament. There have always been very high quality apprenticeships in this country....

Written Answers — Treasury: Employment (11 Feb 2020)

Damian Hinds: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what figures are available from HMRC's (a) Real Time Information data or (b) other data sources on the average wage at which previously unemployed people move into employment.

Treasury: Topical Questions (11 Feb 2020)

Damian Hinds: Creditor enforcement action can greatly exacerbate the problems that people going through mental health crises can experience. May I commend the Chancellor and the Economic Secretary for the breathing space initiative, which will help to ease the pressure on those people and so many more?

Transport (5 Feb 2020)

Damian Hinds: It is a huge pleasure and privilege to follow our new colleague the hon. Member for Birmingham, Hall Green (Tahir Ali), who spoke with passion about some incredibly important issues. I was particularly pleased to hear him talk about National Apprenticeship Week. So many of us have had opportunities to interact with it in Parliament this week, and will continue to do so when we are back in...

Transport (5 Feb 2020)

Damian Hinds: My hon. Friend has made a good point about walking. Along with cycling, it is an important part of the picture, as are buses, which so many Members have mentioned today. I hope that the potential for “on demand” buses will benefit constituencies such as mine. We have also talked about rail electrification. As for heavy goods vehicles, there is a strong link with the development of...

Transport (5 Feb 2020)

Damian Hinds: Would the hon. Gentleman care to comment on what happened to transport emissions under the Labour Government in the 10 years following 1997, before the financial crash?

Transport (5 Feb 2020)

Damian Hinds: It is more about business.
