Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (16 Oct 2017)

Lisa Nandy: The Home Secretary will be aware that last week’s revelations about Cyril Smith in the child abuse inquiry demonstrate that the cover-up of decades of child abuse reached the highest levels of Government. Will she commit to releasing papers held by all Departments and agencies in relation to the case so that Cyril Smith’s many victims, who were denied justice in his lifetime, can...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Child Sexual Exploitation: Sentencing (5 Sep 2017)

Lisa Nandy: One barrier to successful prosecutions in child sexual exploitation cases is the fact that, too often, victims are wrongly thought to be complicit in their own exploitation. That highlights the importance of the issue my hon. Friend the Member for Rotherham (Sarah Champion) just raised. There must be absolutely no suggestion in any Government guidance that children can be complicit in their...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Child Sexual Abuse Inquiry (3 Jul 2017)

Lisa Nandy: Whether she has held discussions with the independent inquiry into child sexual abuse since the withdrawal of the charity Survivors of Organised and Institutional Abuse from that inquiry.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Child Sexual Abuse Inquiry (3 Jul 2017)

Lisa Nandy: I thank the Home Secretary for that, but this is now really serious: this is the fourth victims’ group that has left, and today we have had the Sutton review, which reads like a total whitewash and suggests that no lessons have been learned by the inquiry or by the Government that set it up. What message does she think that sends to everybody in this country who is currently relying on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Regional Funding: Arts and Culture (29 Jun 2017)

Lisa Nandy: I very much welcome the Arts Council’s decision to increase funding outside of London, but the Minister must be aware that many brilliant institutions such as the People’s History Museum are primarily dependent on local authorities for funding. Will he consider following the Arts Council’s lead and give us back some of the money that has been slashed from local authority...

Housing Benefits (18 to 21-Year-Olds) (7 Mar 2017)

Lisa Nandy: The young people the Minister describes bear no resemblance to the young people I used to work with at the youth homelessness charity Centrepoint, many of whom had experienced horrendous physical, mental and emotional abuse, which meant that they understandably no longer had a relationship with their families. How does she expect those young people to prove that they cannot return home? They...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: [2nd day] (1 Feb 2017)

Lisa Nandy: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Exiting the Eu: Businesses in Wales: Greater Manchester Spatial Framework (14 Dec 2016)

Lisa Nandy: The picture that the Minister paints is very different from my experience and that of many of my colleagues and my constituents. Most of my constituents had never heard anything about the plan before I wrote to tell them about it. Even the name—Greater Manchester spatial framework—is deliberately off-putting to people. It is incredibly difficult for the public to get into these...

Exiting the Eu: Businesses in Wales: Greater Manchester Spatial Framework (14 Dec 2016)

Lisa Nandy: A week ago, my hon. Friend and I held a meeting in Kitt Green in my constituency, which borders hers. The sight of hundreds of people queuing on a dark, cold night to get into a church hall to make their views heard was deeply moving. Does my hon. Friend agree that the strength of feeling expressed in that hall simply cannot be ignored by local authorities and the Minister?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (21 Nov 2016)

Lisa Nandy: (Urgent Question): To ask the Home Secretary to make a statement on the leadership, staffing, budget and structure of the independent inquiry into child sexual abuse.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (21 Nov 2016)

Lisa Nandy: I thank the Minister for that statement, but where is the Home Secretary, and why has nobody from the Government sought proactively to come to this House to provide reassurance about the serious events that have unfolded over the past week as this inquiry has unravelled in front of our eyes? Has the Home Secretary met survivors groups since last Thursday? What steps has she taken to establish...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (16 Nov 2016)

Lisa Nandy: The Prime Minister does not seem to have very much control over world events, but she should at least be able to get a grip on the child abuse inquiry that she set up. In two years, it has lost not only three chairs, but now eight senior lawyers, the latest citing further concerns about competency and leadership. The Prime Minister will surely be as aware as me that further serious...

Grammar and Faith Schools (8 Nov 2016)

Lisa Nandy: All this motion did was ask the Minister to consider the evidence before us, and to pause for a moment and reflect before setting this country on a path that will damage children’s life chances and the economic prospects of this country as a whole. Instead, throughout the course of this debate, and especially in his closing remarks, he has given this House the strong impression that he...

Grammar and Faith Schools (8 Nov 2016)

Lisa Nandy: I beg to move, That this House notes recent proposals by the Government to expand the role of grammar and faith schools; and calls on the Government to conduct a full assessment of the evidence relating to the effect of grammar schools and faith schools on children’s learning. Today’s debate asks the Minister to consider the evidence before making profound changes to education...

Grammar and Faith Schools (8 Nov 2016)

Lisa Nandy: The hon. Lady makes my point for me. Grammar schools tend to receive a lower funding allocation because, as the Minister has admitted, they tend not to take children from disadvantaged backgrounds, and the funding formula is skewed to provide additional funding for children from such backgrounds. In 2016, in Britain, we can do better than this.

Grammar and Faith Schools (8 Nov 2016)

Lisa Nandy: I do not always agree with my hon. Friend on these issues, but I certainly agree with him on that point. The issue of funding and how we spend resources that, as a result of choices made by this Government, are incredibly scarce, is important.

Grammar and Faith Schools (8 Nov 2016)

Lisa Nandy: I agree with my right hon. Friend’s point about integrating communities. This highlights the point made by my hon. Friend the Member for Huddersfield (Mr Sheerman). There are many types of school that provide a good education, and provided that they are inclusive, have a broad curriculum and work hard to serve the needs of their community, they do very well by their children. The...

Grammar and Faith Schools (8 Nov 2016)

Lisa Nandy: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for highlighting those aspects. I will say a little more about them in a moment, but in the meantime, I pay tribute to her for the work that she has done to make sure that we do not forget about the importance of investing in young people in their early years, not least because one of the great problems with the Government’s proposals is that by the age...

Grammar and Faith Schools (8 Nov 2016)

Lisa Nandy: The very troubling question for the right hon. Lady is: where is the choice for children who cannot get into the grammar schools? The Education Policy Institute recently produced research that showed that the more highly selective an area, the worse the schools are, disadvantaging everyone. I will happily give way to the right hon. Lady again if she will tell me what she would say to a child...

Grammar and Faith Schools (8 Nov 2016)

Lisa Nandy: Many children and young people, not just in the right hon. Lady’s area but around the country, will be extremely disappointed by that response. The idea that in 2016 any child is better off by being segregated and branded a failure at the age of 11, or that we are better off as a country with that system, is particularly backward-looking.
