Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Home-schooling (11 Dec 2017)

Lucy Powell: Does the Minister agree with the chief inspector of schools, Amanda Spielman, that so-called off-rolling, which includes home-schooling and alternative provision off site, is one of the big scandals in our education system? The Institute for Public Policy Research estimates that 48,000 children are now off-rolled. What will the Government do to give local authorities the powers and capacity...

Report on Recent Terrorist Attacks (5 Dec 2017)

Lucy Powell: I echo the tributes paid to the police and security services and the comprehensive report brought before the House today. I agree with the Home Secretary that data sharing is key. When information about Salman Abedi was flagged in early 2017, that was not shared with local police services. If it had been flagged with those on the ground, who perhaps had the fuller view of what was going on in...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (28 Nov 2017)

Lucy Powell: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Mid Norfolk (George Freeman). Perhaps he could take the Prime Minister to the public sector leadership academy now that he has a bit of time on his hands. The key issue of the Budget is productivity, but that is nothing new at all. The productivity gap is now widening. An average worker in Germany produces the same output in four days as we...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (28 Nov 2017)

Lucy Powell: I will come back to those issues later in my speech. There are some advances, but they are not backed by resources. We have seen huge cuts in post-16 education over the past seven years, which has meant that the gap has widened further and further. As the Social Mobility Commission again stated today, we do know how to pull up this long tail because we are doing so in London. It requires a...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (28 Nov 2017)

Lucy Powell: I will not take any more interventions, Mr Deputy Speaker. There was nothing at all about school budgets, which was one of the key issues in the general election, and they are still falling in real terms. The Institute for Fiscal Studies said that, after the Secretary of State’s announcement in the summer, there was still a 5% cut in real terms, because the number of pupils is going up....

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (28 Nov 2017)

Lucy Powell: My hon. Friend and neighbour is making an excellent speech. On research funding, is she aware that more than two thirds of health innovation research money goes to the “golden triangle”, despite the fact that Greater Manchester has a cutting edge in life sciences? Would that not be a good place to start?
