Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Social Mobility (11 Dec 2017)

Nicholas Dakin: Sixth form colleges are well recognised for their role in delivering social mobility, yet that is now at risk with an underfunding of £1,200 per student, compared with 11 to 16 funding. Will the Secretary of State act to address this before it is too late?

Social Mobility Commission (4 Dec 2017)

Nicholas Dakin: Is the fall in social mobility reported by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation today good reason for the commission to resign, or should the Government be resigning for their failure?

Industrial Strategy (27 Nov 2017)

Nicholas Dakin: I absolutely applaud the industrial strategy for saying that we need to build on our strengths. One of our great strengths is our foundation industries, such as steel. Will the Government get on with energetically pursuing a sector deal with the steel industry, so we can add it to the other four deals he announced today?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Cadet Units: State Schools (27 Nov 2017)

Nicholas Dakin: Last week, I was able to see Scunthorpe’s 119 Squadron, which meets outside the school day, but does fantastic work developing young people. The young people and the volunteers are a real tribute to us all. What are the Government doing to ensure that cadet groups—Army, Navy and sea—continue to play an important role in our communities?

Prime Minister: Engagements (22 Nov 2017)

Nicholas Dakin: Today is World Pancreatic Cancer Day. Last night, the all-party parliamentary group on pancreatic cancer launched its report “The Need for Speed: Diagnosing Pancreatic Cancer Earlier, Giving Patients a Chance of Living Better for Longer”.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (13 Nov 2017)

Nicholas Dakin: Members of the British Steel pension scheme need to decide whether to go into British Steel pension scheme 2 or the Pension Protection Fund by 11 December, but there is still a lack of clarity around the position of high/low pensioners in the PPF and whether that might change after the point of decision making. Will the Secretary of State look at this so that the information is available to...

Petition - Kingsway Golf Course, Scunthorpe (7 Nov 2017)

Nicholas Dakin: It is a great pleasure to present this petition on the behalf of local people who are concerned about the future of Kingsway golf course. It is surprising that I am presenting this petition here before they have had the opportunity to present it to the Conservative council. I particularly thank Neil Herrick for co-ordinating the petition so well that it has received over 1,500 signatures....

European Economic Area: Uk Membership: Transport in the North (6 Nov 2017)

Nicholas Dakin: It is a real pleasure to follow my northern Lincolnshire friend, the hon. Member for Cleethorpes (Martin Vickers), but first let me congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Kingston upon Hull North (Diana Johnson) on setting out the debate so well and reminding us that this is not just about transport but about rebalancing the economy. As the hon. Member for Richmond (Yorks) (Rishi...

European Economic Area: Uk Membership: Transport in the North (6 Nov 2017)

Nicholas Dakin: The hon. Gentleman is certainly ambitious. However, hauliers in the area will say that the problems with the A15 going south mean that the situation is poor. Investment in and dualling the A15 would make a significant difference to transport links in our area and would build on the concept of an M11-type development. Improvements to the railways would also help. The nature of the line through...

Paradise Papers (6 Nov 2017)

Nicholas Dakin: Most people have not heard of dollar-denominated trading, but they look at this matter and see one rule for the rich and powerful and another for the weak and vulnerable. Surely the way to lance this boil is to provide full transparency, which means making information publicly available rather than people having to ask about British overseas territories.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (6 Nov 2017)

Nicholas Dakin: The Support Our Sixth-formers funding impact assessment, which was published today, shows general sixth-form education under real strain. Bearing in mind that each sixth former is funded at £4,500, compared with £5,700 for a pupil aged between 11 to 16, will the Secretary of State take the opportunity of the Budget to use last year’s underspend and uplift funding by £200...

Exiting the European Union: Citizens’ Rights (2 Nov 2017)

Nicholas Dakin: What assessment his Department has made of the effect on the rights of UK citizens living in the EU and of EU citizens living in the UK of no deal being reached with the EU.

Exiting the European Union: Citizens’ Rights (2 Nov 2017)

Nicholas Dakin: There are lots of words, but despite the Foreign Secretary telling EU nationals that their rights would be protected “whatever”, they remain unsure and their morale remains challenged. Why do the Government not just accept Labour’s suggestion of a unilateral recognition of EU citizens’ rights, which would transform the tone of the negotiations and be a giant step...

Petition - Scunthorpe Market (31 Oct 2017)

Nicholas Dakin: I rise to present a petition on behalf of my constituents. There are 19,000 names on this petition, all gathered within four weeks, which demonstrates the determination of Scunthorpe market traders and their customers to stand up for the market in the face of the threat posed to its future by North Lincolnshire Council. The petition states: The petition of residents of Scunthorpe County...

Business of the House (26 Oct 2017)

Nicholas Dakin: I recently launched my Small Business Saturday awards to celebrate the richness and diversity of small businesses in Bottesford, Kirton in Lindsey, Scunthorpe and the surrounding areas. Small Business Saturday is coming up on 2 December, so may we have a debate before that date on the contribution that small businesses make to our economy and communities?
