Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Access to Justice: Court Digitisation Programme (8 Oct 2019)

Peter Aldous: In Suffolk, nearly half of all victims of domestic abuse or sexual offences are unwilling to proceed with prosecutions. Clause 75 of the Domestic Abuse Bill will help to improve the situation, but will the Minister confirm that the Government are committed to root-and-branch reform to remove the culture of confrontation, fear and intimidation in the courts and tribunals system?

Domestic Abuse Bill (2 Oct 2019)

Peter Aldous: It is a privilege to follow the hon. Member for Bradford West (Naz Shah) and to take part in this landmark debate. We have heard so many memorable contributions from all around the Chamber. This Bill has been a long time in coming, and although there has been much prior scrutiny it is very welcome. It provides the framework for tackling a crime that has scarred people’s lives for...

Park Home Residents: Legal Protection (1 Oct 2019)

Peter Aldous: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Betts. I am aware that this is a sector you are interested in through your chairmanship of the Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee. I welcome the new Ministers to their places and congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Christchurch (Sir Christopher Chope) on securing the debate. In the past four years, there has been...

Park Home Residents: Legal Protection (1 Oct 2019)

Peter Aldous: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his intervention. He is correct and we need to address those particular issues, but we need to make sure we do so in an effective way, with the desired consequences. The introduction of the fit and proper person test was provided for in the 2013 Act and is intended to eliminate these rogues. However, the feedback from Wales is that it has not done that and that...

Park Home Residents: Legal Protection (1 Oct 2019)

Peter Aldous: My hon. Friend is correct to highlight the problem, and the situation has evolved and been allowed to develop at individual sites around the country. It may be like separating Siamese twins, but we must try, because the two sectors are completely different, serving completely different markets. If at all possible, they need to remain as such. My final point relates to the 10% commission on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Apprenticeships: Quality (9 Sep 2019)

Peter Aldous: What steps his Department is taking to improve the quality of apprenticeships.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Apprenticeships: Quality (9 Sep 2019)

Peter Aldous: I am grateful to the Secretary of State for that answer. Will he work with and support the New Anglia local enterprise partnership in setting up its levy pool, which will ensure that more SMEs in Suffolk and Norfolk obtain funding for training and apprenticeships?

Written Answers — Department for Education: Apprentices (6 Sep 2019)

Peter Aldous: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what steps she has taken to increase funding for apprenticeships for non-levy apprenticeship payers.

School Funding: East Anglia — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (3 Sep 2019)

Peter Aldous: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gapes. I congratulate the hon. Member for Norwich South (Clive Lewis) on securing this debate. East Anglian schools have had a raw funding deal for many years. The Government’s announcement last week of an additional £14 billion for schools nationally provides an opportunity to put right that unfairness, which so wrongly penalises...

School Funding: East Anglia — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (3 Sep 2019)

Peter Aldous: The hon. Gentleman’s point is well made. A lot of the problem is that, although the Government announced the additional funding for early years two or three years ago, the money is not getting through to several establishments, such as Little Buddies and the Rainbow Day Nursery in the Harbour ward in Lowestoft. We had meetings with the then Minister, my right hon. Friend the Member for...

School Funding: East Anglia — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (3 Sep 2019)

Peter Aldous: The hon. Gentleman is right. I was coming on to my fourth point, which might broadly coincide with his. An historical issue in Suffolk, probably for the best part of 20 years, is the low number of special schools and special unit places in the county itself, meaning that Suffolk has to buy more places—both in the independent sector and out of area—at enormous cost. This problem needs to...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Homelessness (22 Jul 2019)

Peter Aldous: What steps his Department is taking to reduce homelessness.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Homelessness (22 Jul 2019)

Peter Aldous: Schemes such as Somewhere Safe To Stay are having success, but will the Minister take on board the feedback that I am receiving from Access Community Trust, Lowestoft Rising and the Salvation Army? They say that to eliminate homelessness, short-term one-year pilots must be turned into longer-term funding commitments and supported accommodation must be provided for those facing mental health...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Electric Vehicles: Infrastructure (18 Jul 2019)

Peter Aldous: What steps he is taking to improve charging infrastructure for electric vehicles.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Electric Vehicles: Infrastructure (18 Jul 2019)

Peter Aldous: I am grateful to the Minister of State for that reply. At sea, Lowestoft is at the forefront of the transition to a low carbon economy—the world’s largest offshore wind farm is being built just off our coast—but the town also wants to be in the driving seat on land. Will the Minister outline the initiatives that have been put in place to ensure that electric vehicle charging...

Resignation of Uk Ambassador to Usa (11 Jul 2019)

Peter Aldous: Sir Kim Darroch is the epitome of all that is the very best about Britain and our institutions. Notwithstanding the enormous pressures of Brexit and all its consequences, does my right hon. Friend agree that our diplomatic and civil services are fundamental and vital cornerstones of British governance that none of us must ever undermine?

International Trade: Export Strategy (11 Jul 2019)

Peter Aldous: What recent progress the Government has made on implementing its Export Strategy.
