Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (7 Mar 2018)

Justin Tomlinson: On Sunday evening it was not Meryl Streep winning an Oscar but my constituent Maisie Sly, just six years old and born profoundly deaf, after her amazing performance in the film “The Silent Child”. Will the Prime Minister join me in paying tribute to the inspirational Maisie Sly and her school Red Oaks Primary, which has helped her fulfil her true potential?

National Planning Policy Framework (5 Mar 2018)

Justin Tomlinson: I welcome this ambitious and positive statement. We all have a role to play in allowing the next generation to benefit from the opportunity of home ownership, something my constituency takes very seriously. Does the Secretary of State agree that the developers have to do their bit, too? I am afraid that all too often the quality of new build homes is dreadful, and that puts people off.

British Sign Language: National Curriculum — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (5 Mar 2018)

Justin Tomlinson: The hon. Lady is making a powerful speech. Maisie Sly, the six-year-old actress in the film, who is profoundly deaf, is one of my constituents. The mainstream state school that she goes to has embraced sign language, which has really inspired lots of young people, who want to take it up. As the former Minister for Disabled People, I know that we have a chronic shortage of BSL interpreters in...

Death by Dangerous Driving: Sentencing (28 Feb 2018)

Justin Tomlinson: My hon. Friend is making a powerful case. There can be no excuse for the Government not to take the matter forward, because that example clearly shows why this should be treated like manslaughter. That driver’s disgraceful actions merit nothing short of a manslaughter punishment.

Coventry City Football Club (21 Feb 2018)

Justin Tomlinson: My hon. Friend is making a typically thoughtful and passionate speech of great importance. As the co-chair of the all-party group for sport, I want to highlight just how important this issue is. Lessons need to be learned from what happened to Wimbledon. Nothing was resolved, and now that football club has been moved to Milton Keynes Dons and its history has been robbed.

Cabinet Office and Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Voter ID Pilots (21 Feb 2018)

Justin Tomlinson: The award-winning elections team in Swindon will deliver one of those pilots. Does the Minister agree that it is staggering that Labour opposes a change that is no different from collecting a parcel from the post office?

Housing, Planning and the Green Belt (6 Feb 2018)

Justin Tomlinson: Does my hon. Friend agree that we need to do more to share best practice on how the new homes bonus money is spent, to ensure that residents are aware of that gain and that they can relate the gain to the cost of having a development on their doorstep?

Statutory PHSE Education — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (6 Feb 2018)

Justin Tomlinson: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Robertson. I will do my best to get the time keeping back on track, as I am conscious that there are a few speakers remaining. I pay tribute to the hon. Member for Erith and Thamesmead (Teresa Pearce). I have been proud to support her work over the years on emergency life-saving skills in schools. I will focus on that topic briefly. I am...

Personal Independence Payments — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (31 Jan 2018)

Justin Tomlinson: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hosie. I pay tribute to the hon. Member for North West Durham (Laura Pidcock), who clearly has a huge amount of passion about this subject. Although I would not necessarily agree with all of the stats she cited, it is important that we continue to do everything we can for those who are often among the most vulnerable people in society....

Personal Independence Payments — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (31 Jan 2018)

Justin Tomlinson: And the reality is that we are spending £3 billion more on supporting the most vulnerable people. That is partly because we have an extremely proactive Minister who, rightly, meets regularly with charities, stakeholders, individual users and MPs from across the House. I did the same when I was a Minister, and the system continues to be improved. Finally, under DLA the higher rate was...

Personal Independence Payments — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (31 Jan 2018)

Justin Tomlinson: That is an important point. [Interruption.] There is an Opposition Member who favours randomly plucking stats out of the air. It is the official statistics, independent of the Government, that I am giving; our teams can go and research them in the Library. I shall give an example of a big difference being made. Those who are terminally ill now have their process speed-tracked and the decision...

Pip Back Payments (30 Jan 2018)

Justin Tomlinson: This is a significant and important announcement. Will the Minister give a clear commitment on continuing to work with stakeholders and charities not only to learn the lessons, but to help them to communicate with all their members so that they can be kept up to date with that work?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (29 Jan 2018)

Justin Tomlinson: With over 30,000 cardiac arrests taking place outside hospitals every year and a disgracefully low survival rate of just 12%, it is no surprise that there is huge public support to make sure that every child is given a half-hour lesson on emergency life-saving skills, so that we can create a generation of life savers. Will the Secretary of State meet me to talk about how we can make that a...

Personal Independence Payment (23 Jan 2018)

Justin Tomlinson: Building on this very positive announcement, we all need to do more to support people with mental health conditions, and one of the biggest challenges is identifying people with those conditions. The PIP process can play a crucial role in that. Will the Secretary of State therefore bring forward plans to enable us to signpost those identified for the additional targeted support that is...

Points of Order: Financial Guidance and Claims Bill [Lords] (22 Jan 2018)

Justin Tomlinson: At the time, I was chair of the all-party parliamentary group on financial education for young people, and I was very grateful for my hon. Friend’s support in that campaign. I echo her comments. We live in a very complex society, with direct debits, standing orders and complicated marketing messages coming forward. Making sure that we equip all people of all ages to make informed...

Points of Order: Financial Guidance and Claims Bill [Lords] (22 Jan 2018)

Justin Tomlinson: On that point, will the hon. Lady join me in congratulating Nationwide Building Society, which has led the way by working with Macmillan to ensure that appropriate support is made available as soon as there is a diagnosis?

Space Industry Bill [Lords] (15 Jan 2018)

Justin Tomlinson: It is an absolute pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for South East Cornwall (Mrs Murray), who has put a very strong case for why her constituency should benefit—

Space Industry Bill [Lords] (15 Jan 2018)

Justin Tomlinson: She has put a very strong case for why the whole of Cornwall should benefit from this very exciting Bill. I very much welcome the Bill. It is an interstellar element of our modern industrial strategy setting out how the UK will become a leading player in the commercial space age. This is really exciting. I am delighted to hear all the MPs, right across the House, pitching for why their...

Disability Confident Scheme — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (10 Jan 2018)

Justin Tomlinson: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Rosindell. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Ochil and South Perthshire (Luke Graham) on his fantastic speech. I have known him for many years, and I am not surprised that he has a full grasp, and a very proactive and constructive way, of promoting this very important issue. It is a pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member...
