However, I will not...

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, the situation facing the country is gravely concerning and we all have a collective responsibility to avoid over- whelming the NHS with the spread of the virus.

In my diocese, many...

Qualifications - Question (3 Nov 2020)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, a recent survey of apprenticeship employers published by the Department for Education indicates that employers see higher apprenticeships as better value for money than lower level 2 and 3 apprenticeships, so they are utilising levy funds to upskill existing staff, rather than to train new recruits.

Tax Avoidance: Base Erosion and Profit Shifting - Question (2 Nov 2020)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, I underline what the noble and right reverend Lord, Lord Harries, has brought into focus. The loss of corporate tax—about 3% from high-income economies compared with 9% for low-income ones—further exacerbates the impact of coronavirus on trade and tourism.

Nurses: Recruitment - Question (18 Jun 2020)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, support for key public service staff and maintaining quality training for those professions will be strategic in the successful rebuilding of our post-Covid society.

Covid-19: Educational Gaps - Question (4 Jun 2020)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, I want to highlight another example of educational institution closures affecting the educational attainment of young people, particularly those aged 16 to 19.
