Music Education in State Schools - Question (2 Mar 2022)

Lord Lingfield: My Lords, is my noble friend aware, following my noble friend Lord Black’s point, that whereas 85% of independent schools have school orchestras, only 12% of state schools do? While the music hubs she has mentioned indeed do a good job in providing individual instrumental tuition, the best way of encouraging young people to love music is to give them the opportunity to play in school-based...

Higher Education: T-Levels - Question (24 Feb 2022)

Lord Lingfield: My Lords, does my noble friend agree that one of the most important aspects of T-levels is that students have to spend nine weeks of work experience with a local firm? This is quite difficult to find even in the great metropolitan areas, but in areas of deprivation and in rural areas it is very difficult indeed to find such placements. What inducements will the Government provide for firms in...

I remind your Lordships of my charitable interest as chairman of the Cadet...

Cadet Forces - Question (1 Mar 2021)

Lord Lingfield: My Lords, I am grateful to my noble friend for her helpful—indeed, hopeful—reply.
