Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: In highlighting the fact that these are real people, the hon. Member for Bradford South (Judith Cummins) insinuates that Government Members have no understanding, which is absolute nonsense. I went to a school at the bottom of the league table, my father died at an early age, we had bailiffs at the door, and there was no support. We absolutely understand the importance of providing...

Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: I have only just started! And I do not have long. For me, the key is the simplification of benefits. One had to be a nuclear physicist to navigate the old system. We all saw in our casework some of the most vulnerable people missing out on benefits to which they were entitled. That was the driving priority for introducing universal credit, which removes the cliff edge for those wanting to...

Regulation of Property Agents (18 Oct 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: In the 17 years that I have represented residents, both as a councillor and as an MP, this is easily one of the biggest issues that they have faced. Leaseholders are being ripped off left, right and centre, and the only defence is the right to manage. The best case scenario is that it is a complex process, but it is more often near impossible. Through the consultation, I hope that the...

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

Justin Tomlinson: Thank you, Mr Wilson. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, and it is always a pleasure to follow the spokesman for the SNP who, during my time as the Minister for Disabled People, was one of the most constructive Opposition Members and engaged regularly with good proactive ideas. I pay tribute to the hon. Member for Newcastle upon Tyne North (Catherine McKinnell), who set out...

Higher Education Funding (11 Oct 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: Value for money is key and far too many degrees are unnecessarily long. What efforts are being made to offer shorter, more intensive degrees to reduce the final tuition fee bill?

European Union (Approvals) Bill: Approval of draft decisions under Article 352 of TFEU (10 Oct 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: My hon. Friend is making a typically powerful speech. This agreement is a good start, but, as an advocate for opportunities for future trading arrangements with Canada, does he agree that there is potential to be even more ambitious?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: PE and Sport Premium (11 Sep 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: What steps her Department is taking to measure the effect of the PE and sport premium on childhood inactivity over the 2017-18 academic year.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: PE and Sport Premium (11 Sep 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: Yes, it is making a big difference during school term time, but ukactive’s research shows that children lose a significant level of fitness in the school holidays. Using funds from the premium and the sugar tax, what can be done to open up school sports facilities for local clubs and community groups to provide sporting opportunities outside the traditional school day?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Courts: Victims and Witnesses (5 Sep 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: What steps the Government are taking to improve the court experience for victims and witnesses.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Courts: Victims and Witnesses (5 Sep 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: Research from Victim Support found that more than half of victims have unwanted contact with the defendant at court. How will the Government’s court reforms ensure that separate entrances, waiting rooms and facilities are standard across all criminal courts?

Social Mobility — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (11 Jul 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Pritchard. I pay tribute to the hon. Member for Manchester Central (Lucy Powell) for a very thoughtful speech, particularly on evaluating pupil progression and outcomes for graduates. There is much more work we can do in both those areas. I also pay tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for East Renfrewshire (Paul Masterton) for his...

Balancing the Public Finances — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (11 Jul 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: My right hon. Friend is giving a characteristically powerful speech, which is why this debate is so well attended. In my constituency, youth unemployment has fallen by a staggering 61%, making a real difference to people’s lives. That is partly due to the expansion of apprenticeships, which more than 10,000 students have started. Last week I was proud to attend once again the graduation...

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Diplomatic Relations: Philippines (11 Jul 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: What steps he is taking to strengthen diplomatic relations with the Philippines.

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Diplomatic Relations: Philippines (11 Jul 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: My constituent Kevin Taylor has been held in the Philippines since 2008. The Filipino authorities continually delayed his case, held him in unsafe conditions and, finally, sentenced him to 12 years for an employment offence. They have now failed even to acknowledge a clemency request, despite his very poor health. With his health failing further and amid concerns about the safety of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Doctors and Nurses (4 Jul 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: What steps are being taken to increase the supply of doctors and nurses in the NHS.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Doctors and Nurses (4 Jul 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: Swindon clinical commissioning group secured pilot funding for its successful video campaign to recruit additional GPs to fill vacancies in our local community.

Justin Tomlinson: What steps her Department is taking to encourage participation in sport by young people.

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Sport: Young People (29 Jun 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: If the £400 million sugar tax is spent wisely, we can open our school sports facilities after school and during holidays, transforming sporting opportunities for young people. Will the Minister visit Draycott Sports Camp in my constituency, to see how every day more than 250 young children enjoy being active, fit and healthy, and so that we can share best practice?

NHS Shared Business Services (27 Jun 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: Following this failure, I welcome the Secretary of State’s decisive action in bringing in the national incident team. How will we learn the lessons and share the best practice, as discovered by that team?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (27 Jun 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: Having access to the next generation of skilled workers is vital for business confidence and growth. Will the Minister consider promoting the opportunities of our ambitious apprenticeship programme through the annual business rate mailer to increase awareness?
