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?

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

International Trade: Export Strategy (11 Jul 2019)

Peter Aldous: Does the Department’s export strategy make provision for promoting the expertise of British business in the emerging markets of offshore wind and the late-life decarbonising management and decommissioning of oil and gas fields?

Women and Equalities: Workplace Gender Equality (11 Jul 2019)

Peter Aldous: Will my right hon. Friend join me in congratulating the Ogden Trust, participating businesses, higher and further education providers and John Best for their sterling work in promoting the coastal energy internship programme, which in three years has grown from providing five to 50 internships, and which is ensuring that female interns have every opportunity to work in an industry that has...

Women and Equalities: Topical Questions (11 Jul 2019)

Peter Aldous: As we have heard from the hon. Member for Bristol West (Thangam Debbonaire), the Lowestoft Signing Choir produced a moving and superb performance in Portcullis House last night. Its members Ann and Daniel Jillings have been passionately campaigning for a GCSE in British sign language. While preparatory work is under way, will my right hon. Friend the Minister for Women and Equalities work...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Radar: Wind Power (3 Jul 2019)

Peter Aldous: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, with reference to the Government's offshore wind sector deal, published in March 2019, whether his Department has allocated funding to help the renewable energy sector mitigate the effect of aviation radar on the development of offshore wind sites.

Peter Aldous: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, whether his Department has issued strategic guidance to (a) NATS and (b) the Civil Aviation Authority on the future procurement of aviation radar systems in relation to the effect of those systems on the deployment of new (a) onshore and (b) offshore wind sites.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Access to Cash (2 Jul 2019)

Peter Aldous: The town of Bungay has been without a bank branch and a free-to-use 24/7 town centre ATM since last May. That is causing serious challenges for traders, the elderly and those managing on a tight budget. Will the Minister put in place a regulatory framework to reverse this regressive trend?

Peter Aldous: What steps the Government are taking to increase financial support for vulnerable universal credit claimants, compared with the legacy system.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Universal Credit: Vulnerable Claimants (1 Jul 2019)

Peter Aldous: I acknowledge the work that the Minister and the Secretary of State have done to improve universal credit, though concern remains that the five-week wait for the first payment is presenting a serious challenge to many people. To address this, will he accept the recommendation of the Bright Blue think-tank for one-off, up-front helping hand payments?

Kew Gardens (Leases) (No. 3) Bill [Lords] (Programme): Climate Change (24 Jun 2019)

Peter Aldous: I very much support this motion and I congratulate the Government on bringing forward this legislation so quickly after the passing of the motion on 1 May accepting that there was a climate change emergency. I hope that the motion will be approved this evening. If it is, we must not rest on our laurels but move immediately to provide the full policy framework so we can deliver what is an...
